Darren McCarty is crossing the line and getting into an IMPACT ring.
Darren McCarty is an NHL Legend who was disrespected by Bully Ray at IMPACT Sacrifice 2023.
Ray not only threw a drink in the face of the Detroit Red Wings player but would put him through a table with the help of The Good Hands.
Now, Darren is getting into the ring himself as he teams with Tommy Dreamer and Yuya Uemura against Bully Ray, Jason Hotch, and John Skyler as part of IMPACT's post-Sacrifice TV tapings.

Former NHL Enforcer Darren McCarty Silenced At IMPACT Wrestling Show, Set For Revenge In Nationally-Broadcast Pro Wrestling Match
McCarty Slammed Through Table By Hall of Fame Wrestler Bully Ray
Darren McCarty – a four-time Stanley Cup champion and one of the NHL’s most notorious enforcers – went from front-row fan to participant at an IMPACT Wrestling show on Friday night, March 24, in the company’s annual SACRIFICE live pay-per-view, held in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
McCarty had multiple verbal sparring sessions with Bully Ray during his Busted Open Match against longtime rival Tommy Dreamer. When Bully Ray threw a beer in McCarty’s face, it set off the hockey legend, who jumped the guardrail to attack Bully Ray.
McCarty was first refrained by security before Bully Ray personally invited McCarty into the ring. Bully Ray and McCarty immediately went at it in a hockey fight brawl.
Bully Ray ultimately won the battle when he sent McCarty crashing through a wooden table.

McCarty played in the NHL from 1992-2009 and was a Stanley Cup champion in 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2008.
