He was interviewed in Buffalo because he's going to be in town for a celebrity roast of Danny Gare. Anyway, he mentioned that he actually dreaded having to fight, but he knew that it was his role from the moment that he started his minor league career with a few fights (despite being a consistent scorer in juniors). When playing Boston, Terry O'Reilly would make it his responsibility to fight Schultz and the two eventually fought eight times over their careers.

Rob Ray often discusses his reticence and trepidation about fighting. Some people might think that he and Tie Domi (among others) mixing it up, but for Ray and probably for most, that wasn't the case.
