Former WWE star Alicia Fox has taken another step towards her return to the ring as she has adopted a new name for her comeback match.
In May 2023, Alicia Fox revealed she had left WWE when she changed her social media handle to her real name of Victoria Crawford after 17 years with the company. Before her departure, the star had not wrestled since the 2022 Royal Rumble, and her last singles match was a loss to Becky Lynch back in 2019. However, she has now made it clear she is set to return to action.
The star made an appearance at Reality of Wrestling’s Summer of Champions event of July 15th, where she confronted the promotion’s Diamonds Division Champion, Promise Braxton, with a match likely in the near future. When it does happen, Fox will be using a new name, ‘Vix Crow.’
During a new interview on ‘Mucle Memory’, the former Diva’s Champion explained that the monicker was a simplified version of her full name, Victoria Crawford. Turning to the transition form WWE to the independent scene, Fox said it was “weird” but she feels inspired.
“It’s a weird transition just because of — I think it’s in my innermost self that’s strangely transitioning because in my mind I’m like, ‘What was the last match I had? Was I good? Did I look like I could perform?’
“All these things. But in that particular chapter in my life [with WWE], it wasn’t really expected to get much feedback. So, in this chance, I feel so inspired for many, many reasons.”
Alicia Fox wants to “create” during the new chapter of her career
When it comes to what she wants to achieve with her newfound freedom to create, Fox says she will figure out her previous problems and fix them.
“I feel so inspired that this is an independent sphere. I can create here, and it’s okay. So it makes me, in my innermost self, wonder, ‘Well, what was my problem before and how am I going to fix it going forward?’
“Because regardless if it’s the business, … am I going to perform to the best of my ability? I’m going to do my best. So, I need to just get it out of it.”
