Austin Aries' Punishment Revealed For Christy Hemme Incident

TMZ reports that Austin Aries was hit with a "severe fine" after putting his crotch in Christy Hemme's face on last week's episode of Impact Wrestling. The actual amount of the fine was not revealed.

Hemme, who called Aries actions "unacceptable" on her Twitter days after the incident, was said to be satisfied with Aries' apology. Aries had put his crotch in her face after she botched the introductions for himself and Bobby Roode.

TNA President Dixie Carter addressed the situation earlier this week, writing on her Twitter, "TNA has ZERO tolerance for inappropriate behavior. The incident with Austin Aries was taken very seriously and handled immediately."
