Alicia Fox departed WWE earlier this year and hasn’t wrestled a match in years.
Speaking to News 4 in Jacksonville, the former WWE Divas Champion opined on what she’s been doing since leaving WWE, what’s next for her, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On initially joining WWE: “I was trying to pay for my life and then WWE gave up an opportunity where they could pay for school. Like college, education.”
On debuting as Edge and Vickie Guerrero’s wedding planner: “I had never gone to a wedding before. So I sat with wedding planner kind of came up with my own and I’m like 19. I’m like, ‘What’s going on’… It was just an interesting thing because I thought I was coming up to be a wrestler. But in real life coming up and being part of that segment was like the first real foundation or fundamental step that my career really took.”
On her time on Total Divas: “It became a little more difficult to separate the persona from myself when we had that reality TV kind of coming in. It was good for the moment but it was kind of a complex situation because we’re reality’ing over here and then we’re reality’ing over and playing it in our wrestling world.”
On life outside of WWE and finding interest on photography: “I’m just really taking it in. Like how can I be a part of it… I’ve been able to talk to a few of the independent performers and arrange where I can come shoot them in their gear. And their stuff. I don’t care what they want me to shoot as long as we can encapsulate an expression for them.”
