Macho Man Randy Savage -- one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time -- died today in a car accident in Tampa, Florida ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with Randy's brother, Lanny Poffo, who tells us the wrestling legend suffered a heart attack while he was behind the wheel around 9:25 AM ... and lost control of his vehicle.

Earlier this month, Savage celebrated his 1-year anniversary with his new wife Lynn.

Savage was 58.

Macho Man began wrestling in the WWF in 1985 and became a superstar with his trademark catchphrase "Ooooooh Yeaahhhhh."

UPDATE: 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.

According to officials, Randy and Lynn were both wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.

Cops say alcohol was NOT a factor.

An investigation into the accident is underway.

He was certainly a colorful personality who the then WWF marketed heavily, mostly as a bad guy. As I recall, he'd previously been a minor league pitcher in Toronto Blue Jays farm system under his real name of Randy Poffo. And his brother Lanny was also a WWF wrestler (billed as "Sir Lanny Poffo") though not nearly as big a draw. Personality wise in wrestling, I thought Randy seemed somewhat like fellow bad guy "Rowdy Roddy Piper". RIP, Macho Man.

Both he and Elizabeth are dead. Elizabeth way too young. 58 is not bad for a wrestler from the steroid era.:yeah:

A number of drug pills mixed with alcohol.

"Miss Elizabeth" died in the house of her then bf, steroid freak (and pro wrestler) "Lex Luger" (real name Larry Pfohl).
