by at . Comments

Macho Man Randy Savage was suffering from an enlarged heart at the time of his death last month, a coroner determined yesterday, likely a major factor in why the former WWE star lost control of his vehicle and crashed.

While the investigation is not officially closed, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office has ruled that Savage was suffering from artherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. A tox screen was also performed and did not reveal anything out of the ordinary.

Alcohol did not play a role in the accident, authorities determined, while nothing stronger than traces of caffeine, pain reliever, cough syrup and sleep medicine were found in Savage's system.

The man born as Randy Poffo was killed on May 20 when he lost control of his car, hit a median and flipped into oncoming traffic. But the report states the crash itself only resulted in minor bruises.
