Lanny Poffo, Randy Savage’s brother, revealed during an interview with Florida’s Bright House Sports Network that the cause of death for "Macho Man" Randy Savage a couple of weeks ago is a condition called ventricular fibrillation. It is described as an abnormal heart arrhythmia that causes uncontrolled twitching of the heart preventing the heart from pumping blood. The condition is considered a cause of both fainting or heart attacks.
Poffo mentioned the courage of Savage’s widow, Lynn, during the crash by saying, "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."
