Every now and then, Mike Tyson, the business mogul’s news, jolts us into reality. Wait, is that the same ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson who could send a shiver down the spine of the toughest man? The answer, in full certainty, that you’d receive is “yes.” Who could have imagined? The years post-retirement brought forth his multi-faceted, multi-talented personality. Oftentimes, aside from doing exceedingly well in business, he makes it a point to get everyone acquainted with like-minded personalities.
Ric Flair, the WWE legend, is one of the celebrities whose friendship Mike Tyson nourishes dearly. Together, their cannabis journey has touched the heights of the industry. The former professional wrestler, often hailed as one of the greatest of all time, took to his Instagram account early today. He shared a beautiful photo of himself standing alongside the former heavyweight champion and one more person. Predictably, ever since they chanced upon it, fans and followers have been thronging it with their comments. Even an excited Mike Tyson couldn’t prevent himself.
Ric Flair wrote, “Killing the W33d game, Drip by Drip, baby! WoOoOo!!” When it came to tagging, besides himself and Tyson 2.0, he included #reinalv. Precisely, the person standing in between the two living legends is none other than Reina LV, or Reina Las Vegas. She sells her products under the now increasingly well-recognized line ‘Reina’. Interestingly, she too shared a bevy of clips and pictures taken during the ‘Meet Ric Flair’ event at the Las Vegas-based Planet 13 store.
She wrote, “Rick flair @ricflairdrip Meet and Greet at @planet13stores.” But the comments that most fans would cherish the most perhaps came from the man himself. Through his official Tyson 2.0 handle, Mike Tyson gave a shout-out to the “Cannabis royalty.”
It’s been over two years since Ric Flair and Mike Tyson joined hands. He launched his own line of cannabis-based products, ‘Ric Flair Drip’, under the Tyson 2.0 umbrella.
Once a King, Always the King: Mike Tyson
As far as ‘Iron’ Mike is concerned, roughly sixteen years after he retired from boxing, in 2021, he ventured into the highly lucrative cannabis sativa industry. Wading through bankruptcy, then starting a new family life and rebranding himself eventually took him knocking on the door of the hitherto untested sector. It was as if the business was waiting for his acumen. Since his entry, ‘Iron, Mike hasn’t looked back.
Per a 2022 MarketWatch report, the revenue of Tyson 2.0 and Ric Flair Drip was expected to jump threefold from $50 million in 2022 to a reported $160 million in 2023. Undoubtedly, he deserves all the credit for taking the brand to the next level and into new markets. Much thanks to his interactive and pragmatic approach.
