Impact Wrestling will return to St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario, Canada for tonight’s post-Sacrifice TV tapings. The company has just announced that the tapings are sold out. Friday’s Sacrifice event was also sold out.
We noted before how Bully Ray defeated Tommy Dreamer in a Busted Open match at Sacrifice. The match saw Ray throw beer into the face of former NHL star Darren McCarty, who was sitting at ringside. The post-match angle saw Ray put McCarty through a table, which you can see below.
In an update, Impact has announced that McCarty will make his Impact in-ring debut at tonight’s tapings. He will team with Dreamer and Yuya Uemura to take on Bully, John Skyler and Jason Hotch. It should be noted that McCarty has done a good amount of pro wrestling work since retiring from the NHL.
Impact later issued a press release to confirm that McCarty will be on next Thursday’s Impact TV show, which you can see below.
If you’re attending tonight’s tapings and would like to help with spoiler coverage, please e-mail us. Below is the announced line-up for tonight:
* Knockouts World Tag Team Champion Taylor Wilde vs. Jessicka

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 will get his revenge on Thursday, April 6, when he teams with Tommy Dreamer and Yuya Uemura for a fight against Bully Ray and The Good Hands tag team (Jason Hotch and John Skyler). The 6-man war will air at 8 p.m. ET on AXS TV in the U.S., and Fight Network in Canada.
McCarty played in the NHL from 1992-2009 and was a Stanley Cup champion in 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2008.
