Randy “Macho Man” Savage autopsy was completed yesterday and the cause of death is still “pending.” The ME did not notice any “extensive trauma” to his body. And it might take anywhere from 4-6 weeks for toxicology results to be completed.

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!” There will be no public memorial.
