Austin Aries will be disciplined for spat with Christy Hemme



from the Bleacher Report:

Hemme incorrectly introduced Aries and tag team partner Bobby Roode as Kazarian and Daniels. Aries immediately reacted. He cornered the former WWE Diva, who corrected herself accordingly. Aries then stood atop the second turnbuckle, allowing her to gaze directly into his unmentionables.

Her nervous laughter made it clear that this was not a work.

Hemme would go on to post her displeasure on Twitter, calling Aries’ actions “unacceptable.” That tweet has since been deleted.

Aries’ cryptic, irreverent, pun-filled response to Hemme’s tweet is one indicator that this issue may have already blown over internally. Said Aries:

David Schwarz, Spike TV’s senior VP/communications, says Austin Aries will be disciplined for the incident involving Aries and Christy Hemme on last Thursday’s Impact. Schwarz had the following to say about the situation…

“We have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment. 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. I’m not sure specifically how [the discipline] will be handled. To what extent, I don’t know. This is certainly something we don’t condone and don’t tolerate. Such behavior is not welcome.

When Schwarz was asked if Aries’ punishment would become public, he added the following…

“I think that a statement of some sort will be coming. That’s being worked out. But immediate action will be taken.”

    chirsty hemme needs to chill out

    she acts like a whore when on the mic anyway – with her slutty cloths on

    and she feels offended by a crotch ?

    didint she get spanked by howard stern on his show?
    get over it

  2. Mackdeezy says:

    Its because she likes girls…. which is OK and all, but… well, remember the diva search? Kissing all them girls and such :p

  3. `J says:

    her boyfriend must be thrilled.

  4. Wes says:

    Not for nothing, Christy Hemme is taller than Aries…

  5. Guled says:

    haha this is great.
    instead of d, she wants the a

  6. dcj says:

    Only makes him awesome

  7. Ostego says:

    Like Punk, Aries is also known to be a d-bag in real life. How many times has Lilian Garcia messed up on an introduction? Accidents happen.

  8. Nick A says:

    Wow, why does Gerweck approve of the misogynist comments here?

    Spike is right on this one. Hemme messed up, but another wrong by Aries does not make up for it. His actions were borderline illegal.

  9. StunningSteve says:

    Thank you Nick. Glad there are some of us who don’t sound like potential rapists. There has always been a ton of misogyny in wrestling. Remember the way people would cheer when the Dudleys put women through tables. The abuse of women has constantly been used in wrestling. Still this in particular could lead to a big fat lawsuit. TNA and Spike both know that and that is why they have to act on it.

  10. StunningSteve says:

    Good point Ostego. Again, glad not every wrestling fan loves to see a woman humiliated. It’s especially disgusting to hear the “she dresses like a slut” statement. The implication that a woman is asking to be sexually assaulted, harrassed or abused is pretty stupid and disgusting.

  11. art123guy says:

    @Ostego — I agree accidents happen and she didn’t deserve it (even though I thought it was funny), I think had she corrected herself, Aries wouldn’t have done it. It was Aries being a heel and taking it too far.

  12. N. Gaijin says:

    @art123guy:
    I’m with you on this one. I wouldn’t outright call Aries a misogynist on this one, it was a clear case of him getting too much into his heel character. Had he not gotten his crotch in her face like that at the end, this wouldn’t have even been an issue and he could have still done a pretty good heel bit.

  13. Ian says:

    @adam, its people like you that put the male population back about 100 years. It doesnt matter how a woman dresses, no one deserves to have someones crotch in their face like that.

    It was an accident and undeserved.

  14. Okay, so I just went and checked this out and it’s nowhere near as bad as you guys are making it out to be. She has her hands up and that area is nowhere near her face.

  15. JD Storm says:

    if Aires had avoided the part with his crotch, i doubt anyone would care about this. since he found it necessary to take it that far, i can’t really feel sorry for him.

  16. scott says:

    ha just watch video …Ive seen much worse in wrestling, just aries being to much of the character hes paid to be, uncalled for…maybe…but still hemme getting upset about it is dumb..political correctness is dumb pg rating in wrestling is dumb

  17. Jau says:

    White knights..

  18. Scott II says:

    Had he not decided to near teabag her, ok, he’s just playing the part of the heel, no biggie.

    Aries took it too far, simple as that. Even if she got her ass spanked on Howard Stern, it doesn’t make it right.

  19. Chicago Made Punk says:

    This is why Aries will never make it big,with this d-bag attitude and still some marks around here applaud his actions with the excuse of “that’s what his heel character is suppose to do”. Like Chris Jericho(in character) once said: “Hypocrites!”

  20. ironFNmaiden says:

    I’m surprised anyone saw this incident, considering it was on a “TNA” program (Idk, it’s some company in Florida or something).

  21. Max says:

    tna just trying to get people talking about them?

  22. chris zajac says:

    Yes Hemme made a mistake we all do but what Aries did was deliberate you guys make me maybe I need to put my junk in your girls face then you will change your song

  23. DBRude says:

    Dixie should give Aries a public spanking to open the next Impact, AND force him to wrestle the first match right after.

  24. adam says:

    @ian
    it wasent even bad as your making it out ? she was in the wrong place

    my opinion – shes acts like a whore to me getting spanked by stern
    kissing lillian
    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

  25. James says:

    Look at all the internet white knights out to defend a tramp. Lets face it, she has probably had more junk in her face than she can count on her fingers and toes. What makes this one so different?

    Nothing, nothing except the fact that people are whiny little babies. If a woman did this to a man, there would be no outrage, in fact it would probably be cheered.

    So how is that “equality” going?
