Maybe all those nitrates in the Slim Jim are what caused the heart attack his brother says probably caused the accident.

"Slim Jims... when cat food just won't do."

RIP Macho Man!! Loved you in the WWE. You & Miss Elizabeth were the best couple in wrestling for a long time. At least now you are both together. My deepest condolences to your family & friends.
I hope Vince McMahon will induct you into the Wrestling Hall Of Fame for next year. Both you & Elizabeth deserve it for what you have done for wrestling and the WWE.

May 20th National Slim Jim Day! It didn't matter if he was a baby face or heel, His career has left an impact on everyone who saw him wrestle. I watched him back when he was doing independent promotions in the south way before he madeg it big, And he was just as entertaining then as the last time I saw him. He will be missed by so many people both young, and young at heart. R.I.P. Randy

I live about a block away from where the accident took place. There's already a memorial set up on the tree he crashed into, so I stopped by today to take a photo or two. Included are flowers, balloons, cards, photos of Randy and - you guessed it -Slim-Jims. Quite a few people I know saw Randy around town on a regular basis, said he was a really nice, down to earth guy.
