Wrestler "Macho Man" Randy Savage was killed in an auto accident near his home in Florida after he apparently suffered a heart attack and lost control of his car.
Here's a state  statement from WWE:
WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of one of the greatest Superstars of his time, Randy Poffo, a.k.a. Randy “Macho Man” Savage. Poffo was under contract with WWE from 1985 to 1993 and held both the WWE and Intercontinental Championships. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends. We wish a speedy recovery to his wife Lynn. Poffo will be greatly missed by WWE and his fans.  
The Florida Highway Patrol said Savage's Jeep Wrangler ran across a median and then slammed into a tree. Savage was 58-years-old.
