Alicia Fox returned to Raw this past week when she was handpicked by Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in the absence of her best friend Mickie James, who is currently struggling with an undisclosed injury.
Fox was able to defeat Natalya on Monday Night Raw, thanks to help from Bliss before she then unleashed an attack on Ronda Rousey.
Fox has gone through a number of character changes throughout her time on WWE TV, a place where she has performed for more than a decade, but next week she will be part of one of the biggest matches in her career when she takes on the former UFC Champion in her first match on Raw.
Ahead of this historic match, Fox spoke to Void Magazine about her current character and the instructions that The Chairman himself gave to her when the company decided to give her a new character.
“My character, well, she’s I guess kind of sassy. She said via PWMania. “Her thing is like, “fancy as a fox.” [laughs]. I’ve developed into this like off the wall, firecracker. The word ‘crazy’ might not capture it. But I came back from injury and turned into a heel [bad guy]. We’ve been reintroducing the character. I’ve been bullying people. It’s really fun to play the bad guy, the coward. I get the crowd riled up, throw drinks at them [laughs]. It started in one match, where they told me just to throw a fit. [WWE Executive] Vince [McMahon] told me to just go crazy, tear things up, knock the announcer’s hat off his head. Throw iPads in water. So after my match, I didn’t know how it was going to go, but I just did it. And the crowd really reacted. It was this whole mood swing. It really worked.”
Fox is a veteran in the company right now and has managed to remain relevant over the past few years, which shows that she has a very adaptable character.
