It's been just over a month since we wrestling fans lost "Macho Man" Randy Savage.  The former WWE and WCW world champion died in Florida after crashing his jeep on May 20th.

The medical examiner has released his report and it appears Savage died of heart disease.  The report also found trace amounts of alcohol and hydrocodone in Savage's system, but investigators say it was not enough to have caused the crash.

The Associate Press is reporting that the autopsy revealed Macho had an enlarged heart with severe blocking of his coronary arteries.  He only had minor injuries as a result of that crash.

Savage's brother, Lanny Poffo has said before that his sister in law grabbed the wheel and avoided a head on collison with other drivers on the road that morning. 

Randy Savage was 58 years old, and had been married for the second time for about one year.  May he continue to rest in peace.
