A History of The HOTH’s Love Affair With Pro Wrestling Champion Ric Flair

For those of you who don’t know, The HOTH and multiple world championship-winning wrestler Ric Flair have a special relationship. Especially when it comes to attending digital marketing conferences together.

It all started with The HOTH’s co-founder, Marc Hardgrove, who looked up to Flair as a childhood hero. Hardgrove became a professional wrestler himself in his early 20s as a result of the strong impression left on him by Flair.

This mentorship (and friendship) between Flair and Hardgrove became a professional relationship outside of wrestling in 2015, when the pair manned The HOTH’s company booth at the Pubcon digital marketing conference in Las Vegas, in 2015.

Flair even handed out free money in the form of $2 bills at The HOTH’s booth!

Ever since then, Ric Flair and The HOTH have continued to appear side-by-side.

For example, there was that time Flair joined the HOTH’s Affiliate Summit West shenanigans in Las Vegas in 2017

It was a blast, with a HUGE 20X20 booth, a money machine that had folks scrambling for bills, and as if that weren’t enough: a $2 bill giveaway.

Ric Flair and The HOTH are back at it again in 2018 to keep the great vibes rolling.

This time we’re appearing together at the Digital Marketing Summit in Tampa, at the Tampa Convention Center on August 8-9. Hope to see you there!
