Coroner: Randy "Macho Man" Savage Died of Natural Causes

Randy Savage was suffering from an enlarged heart at the time of his fatal car wreck , which authorities believe occurred when the wrestling legend suffered a cardiac episode behind the wheel.

The accident is still technically under investigation, but the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office has ruled that Macho Man's death was natural, or, more specifically, caused by artherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (aka coronary artery disease), according to a report released by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Toxicology tests revealed traces of caffeine, acetaminophen (pain and fever reducer), dihydrocodeine and hydrocodone (found in cough syrup) and doxylamine (found in sleep aids). The hydrocodone was prescribed and the levels were deemed "therapeutic," rather than an indicator of abuse.

Authorities had already ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash and, sure enough, his blood-alcohol level was .031, far below the legal limit.

There was no evidence that he was taking any medication for a heart condition, meaning he may not have known he was sick.
