TNA wrestler Austin Aries was hit with a “severe fine” by the organization this week after he went off the script during a recent live event and shoved his man bits into a female announcer’s face, TMZ has learned.
The unscripted crotch-thrusting went down earlier this month on “Impact Wresting” … when Aries became upset at announcer Christy Hemme for calling him the wrong name during his ring intro.
Hemme was clearly upset during the junk attack … and afterward, she even tweeted about the incident … calling it “unacceptable.”
But sources tell us … Aries — real name Daniel Solwold, Jr. — reached out to Hemme and privately apologized, acknowledging he crossed the line.
TNA also came down hard on Aries and slapped the wrestler with a fine — it’s unclear how much cash Aries will have to fork over.
As for Hemme, we’re told she has spoken with TNA officials and told them she was “satisfied” with Aries’ apology.
