TNA Wrestler

FINED

Over Unscripted Crotch Thrust on Lady Announcer

Exclusive Details



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.

Wrestling ... it just got REAL, SON!!

I'm not saying what he did was right, but U did not see him "shove" anything.

Oh Wow, so this scene wasn't scripted? Maybe wrestling should be unscripted more often? I'm sure I'd start tuning in if everyone went OFF SCRIPT.

Since wrestling is fake, can we also assume that the fine too, is fake?

I'm not saying that it was ok for him to do this, but I did not see him "shove" anything.

All he did was climb up. I don't see any thrusting. What a vivid imagination TMZ has.

It's all faux including the fine. Unless the b*tch who got his name wrong got throated and a gob of goo in her eyes this whole stunt is a fail.
