It’s been a little more than two weeks since the death of wrestler Randy “Macho Man” Savage and we now know the cause.
In an exclusive interview with Bright House Sports Network, Savage’s brother Lanny Poffo told us, Savage died from a condition known as ventricular fibrillation (VF). VF is a severely abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to fainting or heart attacks.
Poffo said, “What it means to me is, it was a beautiful way to die. It’s quick, painless.”
Also in the interview, Poffo called Savage’s wife, Lynn a hero. Poffo said, “Randy’s foot was still on the accelerator. She reached over and steered the Jeep Wrangler into a tree, saving the live of a motorcyclist and possibly a bus. You know, there’s no telling what can happen when you’re going the wrong way.”
Savage was 58 years old when he died.
