Ric Flair Recalls Being So High With Mike Tyson That He Thought He Died

Ric Flair has made no secret of his wild past during his days as a wrestler, and while his party days may have slowed down after multiple health scares, he's still The Nature Boy.

Flair has become business partners with Mike Tyson in the cannabis industry, and as part of their partnership, they had a night to remember.

"I got so high with Mike [Mike Tyson] one night in the Hamptons that I went into a cannabis coma. I actually thought I died. They brought my back to my room, and I laid there and I wasn't aware of anything. I kept asking them to touch me, like you do when you think you've been hurt. People were squeezing my hand. I would be talking to them, and they wouldn't talk back to me. I was on a delayed process. I said to myself, 'Did I die? Have I just died? I feel like I did when I was in my coma, but I can think, and I don't think I could think in my coma.' That's the way I was talking to myself. All of a sudden, at three in the morning, I sat up in a blur and went, 'I'm alive. I'm back.' I called someone on the phone, 'is this really you?' That's how screwed up I got," Flair recalled while speaking to Theo Von on This Past Weekend.

Flair was placed in a medically induced coma in 2017 for kidney and heart-related issues.

Flair returned to the ring for his last match one year ago, teaming with Andrade El Idolo to take on Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
