SAD NEWS!! A friend of mine sent me a text message to inform me that Macho Man had died. I did not believe him. It was really unexpected news to hear on a Friday during lunch. Growing up watching wrestling, Macho Man Randy Savage was easily one of my favorite wrestlers. The guy was awesome and he is going to be missed.
This is a big loss to the wrestling world.
Florida Highway Patrol tells TMZ … Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median … through oncoming traffic … and “collided head-on with a tree.”
Savage was transported to Largo Medical center, where he died from his injuries.
Savage’s wife was a passenger in the vehicle during the collision — but survived with “minor injuries.” She was transported to a different local hospital where she was treated.
