"Macho Man" Randy Savage is dead, at only 58 years old, following a car accident in his home of Tampa Bay, Florida.

TMZ reports Savage, one of the most popular and flamboyant wrestlers in the sport, suffered a heart attack behind the wheel and lost control of his vehicle.

Starting with the WWF (now WWE) in 1985, Savage enjoyed one of the longer careers in the business, faking multiple retirements, holding grudges in high profile feuds and even enjoying time as a color commentator when he wasn't busy in the ring.

He is survived by his wife of only one year, Lynn Payne.

Savage is best remembered by his catchphrase, "Oooooh yeaaaaah," which he even parlayed into a long-running campaign with Slim Jim "meat snacks."
