Rest in Peace, Randy Savage: 10 Great Photos of the Macho Man

WWE icon "Macho Man" Randy Savage, born Randall Mario Poffo, has died in a car accident in Florida, TMZ reports. He was 58 years old.

According to the TMZ story, Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median through oncoming traffic and ran into a tree. Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.

Savage made a name for himself in the '80s with his special brand of trash-talk, his work as spokesman for Slim Jims, his trademark catchphrase "Ooooohhhhh Yeaaaaahhhhhh" and his flamboyant fashion sense that included fringe, sequins, spandex, an array of cowboy hats and his "Macho Man" shades.

Let's take one last look back at the Macho Man. Here are 10 great photos of randy Savage (and his spandex).
