On Friday night, during Impact Wrestling's “Sacrifice” event in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, former Detroit Red Wings forward Darren McCarty found himself involved in the action during the Bully Ray vs. Tommy Dreamer match. Ray took a sip of beer from McCarty's friend, spit it at him, and threw the cup at him. The WWE Hall of Famer proceeded to throw a jab at McCarty, who accepted the challenge and stepped into the squared circle. McCarty had the better of the fight until The Good Hands tag team jumped in and power-bombed him through a table.
