Booker T In Contact With Former WWE Divas Champion Over In-Ring Return

AJ Lee vs. Alicia Fox WWE

Alicia Fox hasn’t wrestled since her participation in the 2022 Royal Rumble, but according to WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, she isn’t calling it quits on her in-ring career just yet.

Speaking on a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker revealed that he’s been in contact with Fox about training at his Reality of Wrestling school. He spoke about future opportunities for the star, making it clear there’s more to the world of wrestling than competing in major television promotions.

“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 Compared Alicia Fox’s WWE Career To That Of Cody Rhodes

Continuing, Booker compared Fox’s journey to wrestling to that of Cody Rhodes, saying both of them began with the sports entertainment giant straightaway before spending any time in independent wrestling. According to the Hall of Famer, the future is bright for Fox if she decides to put in the work.

“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.”

Other than her appearances in the 2021 and 2022 Royal Rumble matches, Fox last competed in 2019. Her most recent non-Rumble bout saw her team with Tamina to face The IIconics in a losing effort on the April 29th, 2019 episode of Main Event.
