Darren McCarty had a rivalry with Claude Lemieux in the NHL, but he believes he could bury the hatchet for a wrestling match.

On a recent episode of “Busted Open Radio,” McCarty was asked about the possibility of setting aside his differences with Lemieux, who was part of the infamous 1997 “Fight Night at the Joe” where a brawl broke out between Lemieux’s Colorado Avalanche and McCarty’s Detroit Red Wings. McCarty said,


“Absolutely, 100%. For the business, buddy? Can we do good business? I can do good business.”

McCarty began making wrestling appearances in 2021, and he has appeared for ICW No Holds Barred, Impact Wrestling’s Sacrifice pay-per-view event, as well as the following episode of the company’s weekly show.

In other news, Kerry Morton is teaming up with his father Ricky Morton for the NWA Crockett Cup, and the second-generation wrestler is all fired up for the match.

Kerry appeared on the Sports Guys Talk Wrestling podcast and discussed teaming with his father for the tournament, stating that the father-son duo is a cohesive unit heading into the June 3rd and 4th tournaments. Kerry  said,

“You know, it speaks for itself so to speak. We’re firing on all cylinders, especially when we step into the NWA squared circle. We come to win and that’s something we’re both on the same page about. Obviously, [with a] father and son duo, you kind of have that linger in between, ‘Hey, I’m thinking one thing’ and then he’s picking up exactly what I was thinking. With that being said, we’re firing on all cylinders. We’re training at the School Of Morton wrestling academy here in Tennessee, we’re on the road every weekend for the independents all across the country.”

“This is less than three weeks away, we step into the Crockett Cup. The last one was in 2019, Ricky and Robert were thrown out by The Briscoes, rest in peace Jay. Paying homage, we wanna come back and do some Justice and show the world that a [duo of a] 66 and a 22 year old can come together and make something. We’ll make something for ourselves.”
