Alicia Fox

Victoria Crawford, better known as Alicia Fox, modeled before becoming a wrestler. Wrestling’s developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) introduced her in July 2006. Her OVW Women’s Championship triumph on October 20 was followed by a loss on November 1. It wasn’t until 2009 that she joined Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), another WWE developmental territory.

Alicia Fox debuted on SmackDown on June 13, 2008 in a backstage segment with Vickie Guerrero, which saw her introduced as Guerrero and Edge’s wedding planner. During their wedding reception on the July 18 episode of SmackDown, Triple H revealed Edge kissing Fox the day before the wedding on camera. Fox involved herself in the WWE Championship match at The Great American Bash when she attempted to help Edge, but she was stopped by Guerrero. The confusion surrounding her interference caused Edge to accidentally spear Guerrero.

A fan favorite position on ECW, Fox returned to WWE television after a three-month absence. While away from WWE television, Fox allegedly transferred her wedding planning firm to England and met Gabriel there. Towards the end of December 2008, Gabriel and Fox had a dispute with the Burchills (Paul and Katie For her debut, Fox lost against Katie Lea Burchill on ECW January 6, 2009. Next, on January 13, Gabriel and Fox beat the Burchill twins in a mixed tag team match, earning Fox her first victory with the ECW brand since joining in 2008. Fox and Gabriel feuded with Tyson Kidd and Natalya in March, with Natalya beating Fox on ECW on March 3. Santino’s twin sister Santina Marella won the 25 Divas battle royal at WrestleMania XXV.

As part of his attempt to impress her and locate a new valet, Zack Ryder asked Fox and Gail Kim to sit ringside for numerous of his bouts starting in May 2010. On May 10, Fox tried to help Ryder during his bout with Evan Bourne, but Gail Kim stopped him. They beat Ryder and Fox in a mixed tag team battle the next week. To collect a “bounty” from Raw’s special guest presenter, Ryder, she attacked him.

For the WWE Divas Championship, Fox faced Gail Kim, Eve, and Maryse on June 20, 2010 at WWE Fatal 4-Way. Maryse was pinned by Fox to win the bout and the title. Thanks to her triumph at WWE’s Fatal 4 Way PPV, Fox became the first and only African American Divas Champion in WWE history. After fake an ankle injury, she won the title on Raw on July 5. An unnamed Raw General Manager allowed Eve a rematch at Money in the Bank, where Fox successfully retained the belt. On August 2, Fox proclaimed herself the best Divas Champion ever after winning a six-Diva tag team match. Melina, the former Divas Champion, attacked Fox. The next week, Melina pinned Fox. The Divas Championship went to Melina on August 15 at SummerSlam.

For season 2 of Mixed Match Challenge, Fox teamed up with Jinder Mahal, while Alexa Bliss and Mickie James feuded with WWE Hall-of-Famers Trish Stratus and Lita in October 2019. At WWE Evolution, the first all-female pay-per-view in WWE history, James and Bliss were slated to battle Stratus and Lita The bout was called off due to Bliss’ prior concussion, and Fox will replace her. Stratus pinned James, and Fox and James lost. They’d pair up again in December for season 2 of the Mixed Match Challenge. They beat Ember Moon and Curt Hawkins in the quarterfinals and Bayley and Apollo Crews in the semi-finals to reach the tournament’s championship match. The next year, Carmella submitted Fox, giving them the 30th entrance into the Royal Rumble, which they lost against Carmella and R-Truth at TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. Instead of facing Bliss, Fox teamed up with Mickie James in several encounters throughout 2018.

With Maria Kanellis out due to injury the next year, Kairi Sane was brought in to fill in for Fox, who was defeated by Ruby Riot. Then, on February 10, 2019, Fox was alleged to be drunk during a live event with Nikki Cross. Arn Anderson, the match’s producer, was accused for letting her perform. Anderson was fired from WWE in 2001 because to this and other backstage disputes with management. It was not revealed that Fox will be a part of WrestleMania 35’s WrestleMania Axxess. As part of Tamina’s comeback to the ring on May 2, Fox faced Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. Less than a month later, Fox announced his retirement from the WWE. On July 22, 2019, she appeared as a WWE Legend among other former Superstars on the Raw Reunion program. At the end of her contract, on October 17, her page was transferred to the alumni area, leaving fans stunned. A pre-Wrestlemania fan gathering on November 13 marked her last performance for the business.

On January 4, 2021, Fox was spotted backstage with Angel Garza and Mickie James, after 2 years of inactivity from WWE. Sasha was on stage with other Legends, watching the main event. Following Triple H and Ric Flair, she became the first female African American 24/7 Champion and the third Superstar (after Triple H and Ric Flair) to win a Championship during a Royal Rumble match. In pursuit of the Championship, Mandy Rose and other male superstars soon reclaimed the championship from Truth, who had lost it to Fox following her elimination. At WrestleMania 37, she joined the rest of the current roster on stage dressed in her old ECW garb, leaving fans wondering whether she was returning. Alicia Fox is without a doubt one of, if not the, finest women wrestlers in history.
