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.

I have to agree with the Jawa Report, say it isn’t so … I am crushed. OMG, the Jawa Report has some old, vintage footage before he was with the WWF, now the WWE and the  famed “Snap into a Slim Jim” commercials. Randy Savage was part of the “Golden Age” of wrestling that took place in the mid 80′s to the 90′s.

REST IN PEACE RANDY.

      I use to run around with my girlfriend miss Elizabeth, and imitate Randy.
