High-flying pro wrestling legend Randy (Macho Man) Savage, once one of the world's most popular grapplers, died yesterday after his Jeep careened head-on into a tree.
Savage, 58, had suffered an apparent heart attack before his 2009 Jeep Wrangler jumped a concrete median, sped across oncoming traffic and smashed to a halt. He was pronounced dead at a hospital in Largo, Fla.
His wife, Lynn, a passenger in the car, suffered only minor injuries in the crash, which happened just weeks after their first anniversary.

PICS: WRESTLING STARS OF THE '80S

"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," Hulk Hogan said on Twitter. "We miss him a lot... This was a tough one."
Savage, with his shades, bandana and sequined robes, was at the center of wrestling's mid-'80s explosion into the mainstream. His larger-than-life persona helped move the choreographed contests from smoke-filled gyms into America's living rooms.
The wrestler christened Randy Mario Poffo battled contemporaries like Hogan, Roddy Piper and Ric Flair, combining his rippling physique with a theatrical style.
He was equally at ease as both heel and babyface — bad guy or good guy — during his long ring career.
"One of the greatest superstars of his time," said a statement from former boss Vince McMahon's WWE. "Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends."
