Report: Arn Anderson Was Let Go From WWE Because He Allowed Alicia Fox To Wrestle While Intoxicated

An update on why Arn Anderson was let go from WWE.

It was originally reported by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet last month that WWE Hall Of Famer Arn Anderson and WWE parted ways after Anderson had been working in backstage roles for WWE since the early 2000s. The details were scarce at the time of the initial report but WrestlingINC has confirmed with multiple sources that Arn Anderson was let go from WWE because he allowed former Divas Champion Alicia Fox to wrestle at a live event while intoxicated.

The site notes that Alicia Fox showed up to the live event intoxicated. Arn Anderson was the agent for the match that she was in and he allowed her to compete. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was furious when he found out according to the report and that is what led to the WWE Hall Of Famer being let go from the sports-entertainment company. 

Fightful Select has learned and posted on Monday afternoon that Fox was offered rehab, but instead went absent, to the point that several in the company had no idea if she was even offered rehab or where she was. We were told that Fox had been on "thin ice" several times in the past, notably after a WrestleMania incident with Travis Browne last year that went public, and another in 2017 that saw her arrive over two hours late to a show when she was in line for a push.

Alicia Fox has been with WWE since 2006 when she was a member of the Ohio Valley Wrestling roster and her last match was at a house show on February 10th on-which she teamed with Mickie James and Nikki Cross in a six-woman tag match. WWE officially let Arn Anderson go on February 21st and as more information about this story comes to the forefront, we will update you here on Fightful.
