Wrestling legend Macho Man Randy Savage tragically died in a car accident in Tampa, Florida this morning when he suffered a heart attack while driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler on the westbound SR-694 at the intersection of 113th Street.

Florida Highway Patrol released a statement saying that Savage drove across a median and through oncoming traffic before colliding "head-on with a tree." He recently celebrated a one year anniversary with his wife Lynn, who was also in the vehicle and surived with minor injuries. Savage rose to fame in the 1980's with his iconic character, the "Macho Man" fueding with legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, providing the fodder and legacy for the Word Wrestling Federation and the subsequent franchise that wrestlers like Savage helped establish as the pinnacle of professional wrestling. Savage was 58 years-old.

Hulk Hogan released a message on his Facebook page" "I'm completely devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we've finally started to talk and communicate. He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he's happy and in a better place and we miss him. We miss him a lot. I feel horrible about the ten years of having no communication. This was a tough one. HH"

RIP Randy Macho Man Savage (November 15, 1952 - May 20, 2011)
