In regards to a 2013 incident, former WWE/Impact Wrestling star Austin Aries has posted a screenshot from a 2013 email that cites an interview that Christy Hemme did for the TNA Wrestling website. Hemme is quoted as saying that she did not consider herself a victim and never felt sexually harassed. She also noted that Aries was apologetic to her and gracious. The email also states that Hemme said that she has respect for Aries in and out of the business and “even more so after all of this.”
The email is in regards to an episode of Impact when Aries cornered Hemme and put his crotch near her face.
Here is the tweet and screenshot posted by Aries:
Finished recording EP1 of my podcast w/ @JustinLeeper_yo. It’s personal, emotional and transparent. In honor of what’s to come, here’s a 2013 email to my lawyer with a quote from Christy Hemme that was supposed to be posted by TNA clearing me of sexual harassment. #SpeakingOut pic.twitter.com/ZiM2q0FAuf
