Cannabis - Wrestling Connection
CBD, Canna and alternative health and lifestyle can
and so mix says legends Hogan and Flair
Kush: Hulk Hogan Gets Into Cannabis - June 2023
boxing legend Mike Tyson and fellow wrestling legends
Ric Flair and Rob Van Dam into CBD biz and beyond
in the years before cannabis turned into a billion-dollar
industry, celebrities associated with cannabis have
found their way to use their public profile for entrepreneurial
reasons within the culture and industry of this plant.
Tommy Chong famously was indicted in a nationwide
criminal investigation due to selling his signature
bongs online while the Doggfather himself, Snoop Dogg,
has attached his expertise and experience in cannabis
to multiple different cannabis brands throughout the
years. B Real of Cypress Hill has had the long-running
Dr. Greenthumb brand and Mike Tyson has used his public
profile as one of professional boxings most
decorated legends to both advocate for the plant and
become a business partner in a number of cannabis
those first initial years, many different celebrities
from many different fields have become professionally
and financially invested in the cannabis industry.
From comedians such as Jim Belushi and Seth Rogen,
to hip hop artists like Jay Z and Wiz Khalifa and
NBA legends like Al Harrington and Gary Payton, celebrities
who received fame for a number of reasons have found
themselves involved in the cannabis business. Even
former child stars such as Jaleel White are becoming
involved in cannabis with the itsPurpl brand and their
most popular strain, Purple Urkel.
within the field of professional wrestling alumni,
a noticeable number of wrestling legends are becoming
involved in the American cannabis industry. Prolific
wrestlers who frequently incorporated cannabis use
into their wrestling personas such as The Whole
F***ing Show Rob Van Dam and Charles Wright,
who most famously wrestled as the WWFs most
jovial pimp The Godfather, have had their own cannabis
brands and continue to use their platform to advocate
for the plants many benefits, especially for
athletes whove worked in field as physically
taxing as professional wrestling.
although hes not officially a business owner
or employed directly in the cannabis industry, former
professional wrestler-turned-Governor of Minnesota
from 1999-2003 Jesse Ventura has used his platform
in state politics to speak to Minnesota legislators
directly about why cannabis should be legalized statewide.
Even at a Minnesota Senate committee meeting just
this past February, Ventura spoke about how cannabis
saved his wifes life from a horrible epileptic
the newest professional wrestler whos entering
into the cannabis industry is the wrestler who arguably
turned professional wrestling into the globally popular
medium of sports entertainment that it has been for
decades. The man responsible for not only turning
professional wrestlers into mainstream celebrities
but also Hall of Fame-levels of success across numerous
wrestling companies. The wrestler whos widely
considered to be one of the best and most entertaining
to ever enter the squared circle and possibly the
most famous wrestler ever besides Dwayne The Rock
Hogan, one of the most illustrious wrestlers across
multiple decades, will soon be entering an entirely
different industry. One that has just as much showmanship
and branding but involves more getting high instead
of high-flying moves. Still though, its an industry
that can be equally as entertaining and Hogan will
have a wide roster of his fellow professional wrestling
alumni to do business and network with. And similarly
to many of his colleagues from professional wrestling,
Hogan admits that he found tremendous medical relief
from cannabis-based products in many different ways
that both pharmaceutical painkillers and simple over-the-counter
medications simply couldnt.
the last 10 years Ive had 28 surgeriesits
just been insane, the 69-year-old Hogan explained
in an interview with TMZ Sports. And from everything
Ive been through, you know, the pain and the
inflammation and the prescriptions that doctors would
give you, that whole training, prayers, and eat your
vitamins kind of got rattled a little bit.
the exact title of his cannabis brand hasnt
been discussed yet, Hulkamania Kush could be quite
a memorable one. Or perhaps, he may make a reference
to the short-lived Hollywood Hulk Hogan
era. Regardless, Hogan has found relief from cannabis
in ways that he once thought would be undiscoverable
under the pharmaceuticals the doctors were giving
him. In multiple interviews, Hogan mentioned that
despite turning 70 soon, cannabis-based medicines
have made him feel as if he were 25 again.
for the esteemed grappler, Hogan wont have to
venture very far in the American cannabis industry
to find a fellow professional wrestler whos
achieved his own status of legendary for his decades
of showmanship in the ring. The company that will
be selling Hogans cannabis line is Carma HoldCo
Inc, a global branding company that has a number of
celebrity cannabis brands under their umbrella. Along
with the Tyson 2.0 brand and the Evol brand which
was created by Grammy-winning rapper Future, one of
the increasingly famous brands under their umbrella
is the brand which was the brainchild of none other
than The Nature Boy himself, Ric Flair.
fact, The Nature Boy and Iron Mike Tyson
have been business partners in cannabis for well over
a year now and made a joint appearance at the recent
Champs Trade Show in Las Vegas. For the upcoming July
edition of Champs, Ric Flair and his brand will even
be hosting an afterparty.
I saw what Ric and Mike were doing, I instantly wanted
to get on the team because you use CBD for energy,
for sleep, for fitness, it just made sense.
Hogan explained. Its a logical extension
of where I already was but this is the safe way to
approach things instead of that wild card way of doctors
prescription stuff. It just didnt make sense

should move to any other night, get away from us' - Chris Jericho slams WWE with
a bold statement - 4th September 2020
lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat and moving to a different night."
Chris Jericho had a lot more to say.
are rumors about WWE possibly moving NXT to a different night.
Dynamite and NXT have aired on different days for the past few weeks. As expected,
the results have been quite positive for both companies. Both shows have drawn
huge numbers without any competition, and there is also talk about NXT possibly
moving out from the Wednesday slot. Chris Jericho, who has always been on the
offensive when it comes to AEW's ratings victories over WWE, has sent another
bold message to the WWE.
a recent appearance on the Busted
Open radio show, the Demo God addressed the rumors of WWE contemplating a
change of day for NXT.
Jericho said that he wasn't surprised that the WWE was planning on retreating
from the Wednesday Night Wars. The AEW Superstar sent a direct message to his
former employers that they should move to another night. Chris Jericho felt that
WWE had a great program, and their spiteful tactic of going up against AEW was
only hurting NXT's ratings.
Jericho says WWE should just conceit defeat
Jericho declared that AEW isn't going anywhere and that Dynamite would continue
to beat NXT. Jericho felt that WWE retreating is the right move from a business
standpoint. 'Le Champion' isn't bothered about NXT breaching the 800k or 900k
barriers as he and AEW are focussed on getting over the 1 million mark. He also
spoke about the importance of the 18-49 demographic.
Jericho said that the WWE lost, and there is nothing wrong for them to conceit
defeat. The former AEW World Champion concluded by proclaiming that no one can
stop All Elite Wrestling.
Chris Jericho's full statement on the rumors of WWE moving to another night and
the ongoing ratings war:
again, it was never a war for me. This is a war that was thrust upon us by a company
that is very petty and very spiteful, and we know the reason why NXT was moved
to Wednesday nights. To mess with us. We get it. We pay attention to what we are
doing. We don't care what they're doing, and we have no interest in it. If you
watch us, you get the ratings, where we beat them week after week. We beat them
in the demos where people think it's jokes. The only thing that matters is the
TV networks and advertisers that listed the 18-49 demo. Look it up. We win every
week. They should retreat. They should move to any other night. Get away from
us! You guys got a great program, and it's good; why would you want to sacrifice
your own ratings just to be spiteful and petty to go head to head with AEW? We're
not going anywhere and put on anything you want - we'll continue to beat you.
It is a retreat, but it's also the right move from a business standpoint. Get
your head out of your rear end and just worry about your product the same way
we worry about ours. If they move to Tuesday, smart move. That way, you guys can
get your 850 thousand, 900 thousand. Whatever! Get 10 million viewers. Congratulations!
Let us do our thing, and we'll get over a million. I think it's a smart move business-wise
on theirs. They lost! There's nothing wrong with conceiting defeat, moving to
a different night, and worrying about your show and not worrying about going head
to head with AEW because you can't stop us." H/t WrestlingInc
Chris Jericho is just doing his job of putting over AEW, many fans would argue
that both shows airing on different nights would be the right decision as they
can watch both shows. The ratings and viewership figures from the past few weeks
have proven that putting out shows on separate days could be ideal for moving
don't forget to check out the latest interview from Sportskeeda in which our very
own Gary Cassidy caught up with Chris Jericho. The legendary star discussed a
plethora of topics, including the possibility of Brock Lesnar coming to AEW, the
origins of his nickname, Jon Moxley, Orange Cassidy, and much more.
