Now we know the truth.
Macho Man Randy Savage's autopsy results are in and it looks like the wrestler died from a serious "cardiac event" just moments before crashing into a tree last month.
According to the Pinellas County Medical Examiner, Randy suffered from cardiovascular disease. He tested positive for alcohol and hydrocodone during his time of death, however, they weren't responsible for his death.
So very sad. We're glad to finally know the cause of his death, but we're still sad that he's gone.
RIP Macho Man.

This is so sad and sweet.
Last week "Macho Man" Randy Savage one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, died in tragic a car accident.
According to Savage's brother, Lanny Poffo, his final wish was to spend the rest of eternity next to his beloved pet.
The dog's ashes were spread around Randy's favorite tree several years ago, and after Randy is cremated his ashes will be strewn there as well.
Lanny tells us Randy would always say, "If it's good enough for Herc, it's good enough for me!"
And … although the Macho Man was one of the most beloved wrestlers of all time, there won't be a public memorial, because he didn't want one. The service will be for family only.

Even though his brother told news services that he had died as a result of having a heart attack while driving last Friday, an official cause of death for Macho Man Randy Savage is still unknown.
An autopsy was performed this past Saturday, but the the medical examiner did not notice any "extensive trauma" to his body and results are still "pending".
Officials are waiting on toxicology results for answers, which may take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks.
Regardless of what the official cause of death is, he still passed away too young at only 58-years-old and our thoughts go out to his family during this difficult time.
Rest in peace, Macho Man!
