Mike Tyson, a former heavyweight champion and one of the biggest names in pro wrestling was announced as one of the Rock And Roll Express to roast WWE legend Ric Flair at “The Roast Of Ric Flair” during Starrcast V. The 3 confirmed roasters are Diamond Dallas Page, Eric Bischoff and Mike Tyson who is set to lambaste some more names.
Starrcast V is the place to be in the world of professional wrestling, jam-packed with Ric Flair happenings and culminating with an epic final match in his long-time promotion, Jim Crockett Promotions. In addition to the Roast and the big match, Flair will also have a special panel alone with Steve Austin, Terry Funk, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, JJ Dillon and Lex Luger!
In recent years, Tyson has formed a friendship with his cannabis company “Tyson 2.0” becoming one with Flair’s new marijuana venture to sell “Ric Flair Drip” products.
Last spotted in the pro wrestling world, Tyson has a distinctive presence as one of the “old guards” with his tough-guy attitude, referencing his success from back in the day. He’s even played an enforcer role on and off over the years with Stone Cold, Triple H, and on John Cena & Roman Reigns during last year’s summer blockbuster. However, that promises have yet to come through so far.
Mike Tyson obviously pulls the punch but Cash looks like he still has to eat some of it! Which is 100% more than I could eat. pic.twitter.com/z4N4wTGS4D

The second Starrcast will include a roast featuring Bruce Prichard, with special guest appearances from Bischoff, Madusa, Sean Waltman, Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Lawler, Gerald Brisco, and Pat Patterson.
Starrcast will be Flair’s first televised appearance and will likely be the most high-profile wrestling appearance he has done in 10 years since the “Plane Ride From Hell” incident.
