Ric Flair on smoking with Mike Tyson (per Fightful):
“I got so high with Mike 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.”
