TNA News: Spike TV official says Austin Aries is being punished over the Christy Hemme incident

May 14, 2013 - 12:05 PM

Spike TV official David Schwarz told Mark Madden of that Austin Aries will be punished after backing Christy Hemme into a corner and standing on the ropes, leaving his crotch in her face. "We have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment,” Schwarz said.

“We discussed [the incident] with our partner. [Aries is] being disciplined. I’m trying to get more information on what action is being taken. Dixie Carter took this very personally. He will be disciplined. Again, we have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment."

Powell's POV: Schwarz also noted that he believes some sort of statement will be released regarding the matter. For those who missed it (as I did initially), Hemme mistakenly introduced the opponents of Aries and Bobby Roode as the duo was making their entrance. Aries backed Hemme into a corner and then stood up on the second rope with his crotch in her face. You can view footage of the incident at
