Victoria Crawford (born June 30, 1986) is an American model and professional wrestler best known by her ring name Alicia Fox. She

is currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment performing on the Raw brand, where she is the reigning WWE Divas Champion.

 

In 2006 Crawford signed a developmental contract with WWE and was later assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). She debuted on

July 1, 2006, as a special guest referee in a match between Shelly Martinez and ODB. It was not until September 6 that she made her in-ring debut, under the new name Tori, in a OVW Ladies Battle Royal which she ultimately lost when she was thrown over the top rope by ODB. On October 20 or November 20, Crawford captured the OVW Women's Championship at a house show but the title was not recognized and thus lost it the next day to Beth Phoenix. In the spring of 2007, she competed in the first ever "Miss OVW" contest won by ODB, during the contest Crawford helped ODB with the competition. Later in the summer, she competed in the "DivaLympics" which lasted throughout the summer. Crawford continued to perform in OVW until February 21, 2008, when WWE severed ties with the promotion.

 

Crawford debuted for Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) on September 2, 2007, participating in a best body contest. Her in ring debut came on September 25, where she and Nattie Neidhart defeated The Bella Twins (Nicole and Brianna). She competed routinely in FCW afterwards, most often competing against either of, or both of the Bella Twins, Miss Angela, Tiffany, Roucka and Wesley Holliday. She competed in the Queen of FCW tournament, defeating Jenny Cash and Tiffany en route to the final, where she lost to Angela.

 

Crawford debuted on the June 13, 2008 edition of SmackDown in a backstage segment with Vickie Guerrero, which saw her introduced as Guerrero and Edge's wedding planner, Alicia Fox. During their wedding reception on the July 18 edition 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. After this storyline was over, Fox returned to FCW.

 

After a three month hiatus from WWE television, Fox resurfaced on the November 18 episode of ECW managing DJ Gabriel, in a fan favorite role. She made her in ring debut on the January 6, 2009 edition of ECW, in a loss to Katie Lea Burchill. On the January 13 episode of ECW, Gabriel and Fox defeated Paul and Katie Lea Burchill, in a mixed tag team match, giving Fox her first win. On April 5, 2009 Fox competed in the 25 Divas battle royal at WrestleMania XXV, which was won by Santina Marella.

 

On April 15, 2009, Fox was drafted to the SmackDown brand as a part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft. Fox made her in-ring debut as a SmackDown diva as a heel on the April 30 episode of WWE Superstars, teaming with Michelle McCool to defeat Maria and Gail Kim. After winning her debut match, she became aligned with Michelle McCool, accompanying the other to her match as well as teaming up in tag team matches. She was in the corner of McCool when she won the Women's Championship at The Bash. On June 29, 2009 it was revealed that Fox had been traded to the Raw brand. One week after, she made her Raw debut in a tag team match teaming with Maryse against Gail Kim and Mickie James in a losing effort when Kim pinned Maryse. On the July 20 episode of Raw, Fox picked up her first pinfall victory teaming with Rosa Mendes to defeat Kelly Kelly and Kim in a "Legs match". On the August 24 episode of Raw, Fox picked up her second pinfall victory over Mickie James in a six diva tag match. Three weeks later on the September 14 episode of Raw, she defeated Kim to become the number one contender to the WWE Divas Championship. She received a match for the championship at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on October 4, but was unsuccessful. She became the number one contender to the Divas Championship again on the November 2 episode of Raw, by winning a battle royal which involved the Bella Twins, Eve, Gail Kim, and Kelly Kelly. She challenged Melina two weeks later for the championship, but was unsuccessful. On the January 11, 2010 episode of Raw, Fox defeated Kelly Kelly in a first round tournament match for the vacant Divas Championship. However, she was defeated by Gail Kim in the semi-finals of the Divas Championship tournament. At WrestleMania XXVI Fox was on the winning team in a 10-Diva tag team match, but on the losing side the following night in a rematch on Raw.

 

In May 2010, she began a storyline with Zack Ryder, after he requested that she and Gail Kim be ringside on several occasions to watch his matches, so he could impress them and find a new valet. During his match with Evan Bourne on the May 10 episode of Raw, Fox interfered on Ryder's behalf, but was stopped by Gail Kim. The following week, Bourne and Kim defeated Ryder and Fox in a mixed tag team match. She later turned on Ryder, attacking him in order to collect a "bounty" from the Raw guest host, Ashton Kutcher.

 

At the Fatal 4-Way pay-per-view on June 20, Fox competed in a fatal four-way match for the WWE Divas Championship, and pinned Maryse to win the championship for the first time. She successfully defended the championship for the first time on the July 5 episode of Raw, defeating Eve after feigning an ankle injury. As she faked an injury to retain the championship, Eve was granted a rematch at the Money in the Bank by Raw's anonymous General Manager, where Fox was again able to successfully retain the championship.

At the Fatal 4-Way pay-per-view on June 20, Fox competed in a fatal four-way match for the WWE Divas Championship, which also involved Gail Kim, Eve, and Maryse. Fox pinned Maryse to win both the match and the championship for the first time. She successfully defended the championship for the first time on the July 5 episode of Raw, defeating Eve after feigning an ankle injury. As she faked an injury to retain the championship, Eve was granted a rematch at Money in the Bank by Raw's anonymous General Manager, where Fox was again able to successfully retain the championship. Fox was part of the victorious team in a six-Diva tag team match on August 2, and declared herself to be undefeatable and the greatest Divas Champion in history. The former Divas Champion Melina made her return from injury to attack Fox. The following week Melina pinned Fox in a non-title match. On August 15, Fox lost the Divas Championship to Melina at SummerSlam.

 

Fox announced that she would be mentoring Maxine on season three of NXT on August 31. Maxine failed to win the competition, and was the second rookie Diva eliminated on the November 2 episode of NXT. On Raw on September 6, Fox faced Melina in a rematch for the Divas Championship, but was unsuccessful. Fox was involved in a battle royal to determine the winner of the Diva of the Year Slammy Award on the December 13 episode of Raw, but was eliminated by Natalya. The following week, Fox was part of a triple threat number one contenders match, which was won by Melina.

 

On April 26, 2011, Fox was drafted back to the SmackDown brand as part of the 2011 supplemental draft. At the May 3 SmackDown tapings, Fox suffered a shoulder injury after her first match back for the brand, in which she was defeated by Layla. Fox returned on the May 27 episode of SmackDown teaming with Tamina to defeat the team of Kaitlyn and AJ. This began a feud between the two sets of Divas, with Fox and Tamina regularly winning tag team matches and six-Diva tag team matches also including Rosa Mendes and Natalya. The alliance between Fox and Tamina ended on the August 11 episode of Superstars, when Fox defeated Tamina in a singles match.

 

After a tag team match in which they lost on the August 19 episode of SmackDown, Fox was attacked by Natalya, provoking a feud between the two. She began wrestling alongside several different Divas to face Natalya and Beth Phoenix, known as The Divas of Doom in tag team matches, and also regularly competing against them in singles matches. As part of the storyline, Fox also prevented Natalya and Phoenix from attacking other Divas, including Kelly Kelly and AJ. At the 2012 Royal Rumble, Fox, Kelly, Eve Torres, and Tamina Snuka lost to The Divas of Doom and the Bella Twins in an eight-Diva tag team match. The storyline continued sporadically throughout the first half of 2012, with Fox losing tag team and singles matches to Phoenix and Natalya. Fox spent the remainder of 2012 and early 2013 competing in sporadic matches, usually on the losing side. In mid-2013, Fox entered a tournament to determine the inaugural NXT Women's Champion. She defeated Bayley in the first round, but lost to Paige in the semi-finals.

 

In September 2013, Fox allied herself with WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee in her feud against the cast of the Total Divas reality television show. For the rest of the year, Fox faced the Total Divas cast in singles and tag team matches, including a ten-Diva tag team match at Survivor Series. Beginning in January 2014, Fox formed a regular tag team with Aksana, later dubbed "Foxsana". Fox participated in the Divas Invitational match at WrestleMania XXX, which was won by AJ. In April, Fox began a feud with new Divas Champion Paige, losing to her in a series of matches on Raw, Main Event, and Superstars. Her losses provoked a storyline in which she lost her temper after matches, taunting the ring announcers, ringside crew, and crowd and defacing the ringside area. Fox was eventually able to defeat Paige on Raw on May 19 in a non-title match, celebrating by taking Jerry Lawler's crown. Her victory set up a title match between the two at Payback, which Fox lost. Following a further loss to Paige on June 9, Fox attacked tag team partner Aksana, before defeating her in a match on SmackDown to disband Foxsana.

 

After a hiatus, Fox returned to WWE television, on the September 29 episode of Raw, where she defeated AJ Lee, with the help of her former rival Paige and subsequently, formed an alliance with her, and went on to pick up another win over AJ on October 20. However, when Fox inadvertently cost Paige a title match at Hell in a Cell, Paige dissolved the alliance by attacking her the following night on Raw. This prompted a traditional four-on-four elimination tag team match, with each captaining a side, at the Survivor Series pay-per-view in November, where Fox's team won the match with a clean sweep. In January 2015, Fox developed a rivalry with Naomi, during which she formed a brief alliance with The Miz and Damien Mizdow, and the trio went on to defeat Naomi and The Usos in a series of mixed tag team matches. On the April 13 episode of Raw, Fox competed in a number one contender's battle royal for Nikki Bella's WWE Divas Championship, which would be won by Paige.

 

On the June 15 episode of Raw, Fox was a part of the Divas that Paige tried to rally in an attempt to take a stand against The Bella Twins and join her, but no one accepted the offer. Three days later on SmackDown, Fox assisted Brie Bella in her match against Paige, and thus aligning herself with The Bella Twins and formed "Team Bella". After weeks of Team Bella outnumbering Paige, Naomi, and Tamina, Stephanie McMahon called for a "revolution" in the WWE Divas Division by introducing the debuting Charlotte and Becky Lynch as Paige's allies, and NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks aligning with Naomi and Tamina, leading to a brawl between the three teams. The three teams would ultimately face off, on August 23, at SummerSlam in a three team elimination match. Team Bella would first eliminate Team B.A.D. when Brie Bella pinned Tamina, however Team PCB would win the match after Brie was pinned by Becky Lynch. On the August 25 episode of Tough Enough, Fox make a special appearance on the finale of the sixth season, wrestling finalists Amanda and eventual winner Sara Lee. While Nikki Bella was off television with an injury, Fox spent the remainder of 2015 competing occasionally in singles matches and tag team matches with Brie Bella.

 

On the March 14, 2016 episode of Raw, Fox and Brie were defeated by Team B.A.D. following a distraction provided by Lana. After this match, Team Bella quietly disbanded and both Fox and Brie transitioned into fan favorites. On the March 22 episode of Main Event, she and Natalya accompanied Paige to her match against Naomi, where Paige was defeated following a distraction provided by Summer Rae and a returning Emma. The following week, Fox, Brie, and Natalya accompanied Paige to her rematch against Emma on the March 28 episode of Raw. After the match, she along her allies were attacked by Team B.A.D., before they were saved by a returning Eva Marie. As a result, a 10-Diva tag team match between Team Total Divas (Bella, Fox, Natalya, Eva Marie and Paige) and the newly dubbed Team B.A.D. and Blonde (Naomi, Tamina, Lana, Emma, and Summer Rae) was announced for the WrestleMania 32 pre-show. On April 3, Fox's team emerged victorious at the event after Naomi submitted to Bella.

On the September 5 episode of Raw, Fox was involved in a backstage confrontation with Nia Jax, resulting in a match between the two on the September 12 episode of Raw, which would end in a no contest after Jax speared Fox through the ringside barricade. On September 25, a rematch took place at Clash of Champions, where Fox was defeated. After suffering a streak of losses, Fox scored a victory over Dana Brooke on the November 4 episode of Superstars. On the November 7 episode of Raw, Fox was announced as one of the participants in the 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women's Elimination match at Survivor Series from her brand's team, before winning a six-woman tag team match along with her fellow team partners.

Dar dedicated his victory to Fox. Two weeks later on Raw, Fox accompanied Alexander in a rematch against Dar, where he was victorious. Dar attempted to seduce her again afterwards. On January 10, 2017, Alexander severed ties with Fox on 205 Live after she interfered during his match with Dar, costing him the match and turning into a villainess. Subsequently, Fox became Dar's new valet. On June 4, Fox and Dar were defeated by Rich Swann and Sasha Banks in a mixed tag team match at Extreme Rules. On the July 11 episode of 205 Live, Dar broke up with Fox after he lost to Alexander in an "I Quit" match.

 

On the August 7 edition of RAW, Fox competed in a triple-threat match against Sasha Banks and Emma where the winner would advance to a number one contender's match the following week.
