No real way to set this one up.
Cary Silkin smoked cocaine with Tony Atlas in the late 80s.
The former ROH owner revealed the news on social media after being tagged in a post regarding Atlas' lack of a push following a victory over Hulk Hogan at a Madison Square Garden show in 1981.
Wrestling photographer George Napolitano tweeted, "But Atlas never really got a big push. He was just another extra on the card after prelim guys. He should have been pushed better but who knows the real reason he wasn't" and tagged Silkin.
Silkin didn't comment on Atlas' lack of a push, instead he shared a wholesome story between two friends.
I smoked cocaine with him at the hotel on eighth Avenue In 86 or 87 https://t.co/K3BYQMdVCY— Cary Silkin (@rohcary) May 12, 2020
Monster Factory head coach Danny Cage seemed confused by this news. And Silkin had the perfect reply to that as well.

Had Atlas played his cards better in the 2000s, he could have been ROH Pure Champion.
