Macho Man — Bad Heart Killed Him

Macho Man Randy Savage died from a serious “cardiac event” he suffered moments before plowing his car into a tree last month — this according to the Pinellas County Medical Examiner.

According to the medical examiner, Savage suffered from cardiovascular disease — and the deadly “cardiac event” resulted from the condition.

According to the toxicology report, Savage tested positive for alcohol and hydrocodone (an opiate) during the time of his death … but neither played a role in his death.

As we previously reported, the wrestler’s brother said Savage experienced a heart attack before the accident — and that’s what caused him to lose control of his vehicle on a Florida highway and slam into a tree.

    I’m so glad that drugs didn’t have anything to do with his death. It would’ve made it even more tragic.

  2. Steve says:

    For once we can say for sure a wrestler died of natural causes. It seems rare these days.

  3. IronHyde says:

    I’ll cosign for you there, Steve…

  4. Z says:

    I wouldn’t say natural causes. His heart condition was most likely due to years of drug use.

  5. Steve says:

    Oh yes Z because you are a heart doctor and examined him. Give me a break. It’s not like Davey Boy Smith who’s heart had grown in on itself. What Savage has is common among men his age. He had nothing in his system that was illegal or would affect the heart. He likely is prescribed hydrocodone and it is one of the less dangerous painkillers out there. Z try going to school a bit before you shoot your mouth off.

    @Ryan…If Savage HAD died fom drugs, it would have been LESS tragic. Dying due to being a junkie is no tragedy. The fact that he died from natural causes makes it more tragic than if he died from being a drug addict.

    But it took two thing to kill Randy, Heart attack and hitting a tree. Now that is a man.
