During their show at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas leading up to Wrestlemania this weekend, Pat McAfee talked in a recent segment on his show about how the Detroit Red Wings ‘stunk’ against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 11-2 loss last Sunday.
Well, one former Red Wings player and Stanley Cup Champion for Detroit, in enforcer Darren McCarty, took the comments personally as he said on Woodward Sports that he would like to fight Pat McAfee in the ring sometime. somewhere.
McAfee, who grew up as a diehard Penguins fan, has a couple points to his jabs at the Red Wings.
Though they are in a rebuild, Detroit is currently on a 4-9-2 record dating back to mid-February, and they are ranked dead last in the league in total defense and have allowed the most goals in that span.
But Red Wings know that they should not mess with McCarty. The former Grind Line mate is known for playing a key part of the infamous Fight Night in Hockeytown back on March 26, 1997, fighting Colorado Avalanche forward Claude Lemieux in the brawl.
Darren is looking at May 7 as his target date for a fight and is looking at joining up with Ruthless Pro Wrestling (RPW) in a potential ‘death match’ of sorts around then.
But the big question is, will Pat accept? He is in a match with Austin Theory at Wrestlemania this week, but he will likely be ready to fight DMac if he wants to.
