Former WWE Star Is Planning Wrestling Return
A former WWE star that was a champion in the company is planning a wrestling return, according to recent comments from Booker T.
Alicia Fox had a very long run in WWE from the time she signed a developmental deal until she recently confirmed that she was no longer with the company as of May 2023.
The main roster debut of Alicia Fox took place in 2008 when she was brought in as a wedding planner for Edge & Vickie Guerrero. It was actually a memorable debut because she was making out with Edge while they were being secretly recorded. Eventually, Fox would become a singles star in the division over the next decade.
In June 2010, Fox won the WWE Divas Championship for the first time and held the championship for 56 days. She also held the more comedic 24/7 Title once as well. For parts of her career, she was known for doing a bit of a crazy gimmick where she would throw tantrums while freaking out on people.
The 36-year-old Fox last competed in a WWE ring at the 2022 Royal Rumble and she was in the 2021 Royal Rumble as well. Prior to those matches, she last wrestled regularly in WWE in 2019.
During a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T spoke about talking to Alicia Fox and how she is planning a wrestling comeback.
“I talked to Alicia Fox yesterday. She wants to come down and knock some of the rust off at Reality of Wrestling and get a little bit of insight and knowledge as far as what this journey may be like that she’s getting ready to partake in. “
“My thing is there is so much more outside of WWE, outside of AEW, and IMPACT Wrestling. This business is plentiful. The thing is, you can be working every week somewhere in this business because that’s how much work is out there, and then to find your way back to that spot, and that spot may not be WWE. It might be IMPACT. It might be AEW. You never know. It might be Japan. You just never know.”
Booker T continued by saying that there’s a lot more to wrestling than just being in WWE and mentioned Cody Rhodes as an example of that as well.
“It’s all about putting the work in more than anything, and when someone like Alicia Fox, she went straight into WWE. She didn’t do any independent shows. It’s almost like Cody Rhodes. Cody didn’t have any independent wrestling experience before he went into the WWE. Then he realized that perhaps something he needed was that worldly experience. Then he went out there and got it and look at him now. It seems like every guy that’s gone out there and done that, they have come back a better person.”
“Alicia, I’m not sure how much longer she plans on being in the business or anything like that, but if she’s going to stick around for a while, why not make the best of it and try to make some good money at the same time. You never know where it’s going to take you. It may take you straight to Hollywood. I’m going to try to get her into Summer of Champions.”
