WWE legend Ric Flair opens up about terrifying ordeal of smoking weed with Mike Tyson saying: I thought I DIED | The Sun

WRESTLING icon Ric Flair has claimed he nearly "DIED" smoking weed with Mike Tyson.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Tyson is well known for having several high-profile guests join him on his Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson podcast.

WWE legend Flair was a recent guest on the show at Tyson Ranch in California and, as many guests do, puffed the magic dragon with Iron Mike.

But in a separate smoking session, the 74-year-old – who has his own strain with Tyson – ended up feeling worse for wear after one too many puffs.

During an appearance on comedian Theo Von's podcast, The Nature Boy said: "I actually thought I died."

Flair got so high off the reefer that he called one of his pals in a paranoid state.

He recalled: "All of a sudden… it finally hit three o'clock in the morning and I kinda sat up in a blur and went, 'I'm back.'

"I called someone on the phone and said, 'Is this really you?' That's how screwed up I got."

Flair likened the effects of his smoking with Tyson to that of his 2017 coma, which he fell into after suffering complications during bowel surgery.

He recalled telling himself: "I can think. And I don't think I could think when I was in my coma."

Flair got himself in such a state because he tried to go puff for puff with Tyson – who began selling marijuana back in 2016.

When asked how he got so high, Flair recalled: "I just said, 'I'm gonna smoke as much as you right now brother.'"

Boxing icon Tyson recently expanded his multi-million-pound marijuana empire in March by opening a coffee shop in Amsterdam.

He said after the grand opening: "It's a dream come true to open our first coffee shop in Amsterdam.

"The Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 will immerse fans in a full-on experience where they can enjoy my favourite Tyson 2.0 products the way I do.

"I’ve tried and tested all of them, and I can’t wait to share some of my most beloved and undefeated goods with Europe."
