Randy "Macho Man" Savage will be cremated and his ashes co-mingled with the ashes of his loyal pooch, Hercules.

Savage's brother, Lanny Poffo, tells TMZ ... the dog's ashes were spread around Randy's favorite tree several years ago, and after Randy is cremated his ashes will be strewn there as well.

Lanny tells us Randy would always say, "If it's good enough for Herc, it's good enough for me!"

And ... although the Macho Man was one of the most beloved wrestlers of all time, there won't be a public memorial, because he didn't want one.  The service will be small -- for family only.

Randy had a favorite tree and died hitting one. That's irony.

For anyone with even 1 brain cell, the suddenness of the accident says it was a heart attack. Even the ME's report didn't find injuries serious enough to have caused death and s the Jeep hit a tree head on it was only going 30 miles an hour. For 2 people wearing their seat belts that's not fast enough to cause fatal injury. Even Randy's wife Lynn's injuries were minor.


And for those people who say "the ME didn't find anything" a heart attack can be brought on by things other than previously existing heart disease. A blood clot in another part of the body that travels can cause a heart to stop immediately and that's just one example.


Randy, by all accounts, lived a simple, quiet, clean lifestyle completely free of the drugging and boozing of some of his colleagues. Rick Flair has admitted in interviews to teasing Randy about this. Somebody dying, especially so young, is nothing to laugh about and, though Randy was a stranger to all of us, he deserves a hell of a lot more respect than some of the comments I've seen here are giving him. So if anybody is dumb enough to find something amusing about all of this, keep it to yourself.

Don't be ignorant people. Randy was only 58 years old and, as I work for a hospital, what killed him was natural causes. The cause of death is a condition called atrial fibrillation where the heart cannot pump blood fast enough to sustain life. It can result in fainting, seizures, or death as it did in Randy's case. It is an entirely plausible cause of death and has nothing whatsoever to do with steroids or any other substance.
