Ric Flair & Mike Tyson Photographed Together At Miami Cannabis Event

Ric Flair on the mic

On the week of 4/20 Day, WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Mike Tyson were photographed together in Miami, Florida.

This past Wednesday, 20 April, marked 4/20 Day, with a range of pro-cannabis wrestlers acknowledging the day in different ways. Current WWE Raw Tag Team Champions Randy Orton and Riddle, for example, released an RK-Bro 4:20 t-shirt on WWE Shop.

In Miami, Florida, a photo has surfaced online of Ric Flair and Mike Tyson posing together. Posted by ‘The Nature Boy’ himself, the 16-time World Champion was seen with ‘The Baddest Man On The Planet’ at the popular LIV Club. They had previously been in attendance at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference Thursday.

Mike Tyson has long been an advocate for the use of cannabis, with Flair recently teaming up with the boxing legend as they work on a new line of cannabis products. Tyson 2.0 – the 55-year-old’s cannabis company – acquired a major stake in Flair’s Ric Flair Drip Inc. ‘Naitch’ explained his transition into a cannabis advocate in a statement confirming the deal was official (h/t Wrestling Inc.):

“Thanks to Mike Tyson and Tyson 2.0, I’ve become a true cannabis advocate and enthusiast. I am thrilled to partner with a long-time friend and fellow warrior. Whom I greatly admire and respect. There are a lot of synergies between me and Mike. We’ve both had many ups and downs, but we keep going at life.

With Mike’s passion for cannabis, Chad, and Adam’s industry knowledge, I look forward to creating cannabis products that will appeal to my national fanbase. Tyson 2.0 products make me go ‘WOOOOO!’ And soon my fans everywhere can get in the Ric Flair state of mind. Limousine riding, jet-flying, feeling good, and ‘WOOOOO!'”

Ric Flair now joins a plethora of other wrestlers, such as Rob Van Dam, in being open about their cannabis use.

It was reported recently that cannabis is no longer listed as being a violation of WWE’s Wellness Policy, with the company having seemingly become more lenient in that respect. Fightful Select noted that Randy Orton has been integral to this policy change, with no WWE Superstars being suspended for their use of the substance in years.
