According to the brother of wrestling legend “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Lanny Poffo, the cause of death of the former WWF and WCW World Champion has been revealed. He claims in a recent interview with Florida’s Bright House Sports Network that his brother died from a condition known as ventricular fibrillation. Ventricular Firbrillation is an abnormal heart arrhythmia, an uncontrolled twitching of the heart that prevents the heart from pumping blood. The condition is considered a cause of both fainting or heart attacks.
Poffo also praised Savage’s widow Lynn, commenting, “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.”
