Wrestling: Alicia Fox
Victoria Elizabeth Crawford (born on June 30, 1986, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida), better known as Alicia Fox, is an African-American Professional wrestler currently employed by WWE. She was originally a model, signed in 2006 at the same time as fellow Diva Kelly Kelly, after John Laurinaitis found them both in a swimsuit catalog. She was notably one of the first models signed by WWE to be exclusively trained in developmental territories before appearing on television. She first debuted in 2008 as Vickie Guerrero's wedding planner before becoming an official part of the roster at the end of the year. She currently competes on the Smackdown brand.

"Foxy" Tropes:

  • Afro Asskicker: Briefly
  • Alpha Bitch: Briefly on Smackdown.
  • Animal Motifs: C'mon. Guess. As of late she's even started coming to the ring with a furry hooded coat-like... thing complete with fox ears on top.
  • Arch-Enemy: Gail Kim, Divas of Doom.
  • Armour-Piercing Slap: To Dule Hill when she didn't win her match as he predicted.
  • The Artifact: Her entrance music changed after her Heel-Face Turn from "Shake Yo' Tail" to the more peppy "Pa-Pa-Pa-Party!". She keeps this theme despite working as a heel more often than a face these days.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Wrestles in a two piece outfit more often than not.
  • Big Eater: In real life, as a look at her tweets will confirm.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Took this trope and ran with it in late 2010 when she cycled through all three colours in the space of a month. In her little group with Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly, she is the redhead.
  • Buffy Speak: The Bella Twins mentioned this in their shoot interview saying "if you ever listen to her in a match, the stuff she blurts out...you never know what she's gonna say". Some lovely examples:
    • "You owe me new hair!"
    • "You don't make me sit on my butt!"
    • "Your nose is bigger than mine!"
    • "Where's my hair!?"
      • And of course the crowner of them all "Have a Foxy Holiday!"
  • The Bus Came Back: Her disappearance from the Edge/Vickie storyline and subsequent reappearance as DJ Gabriel's manager was actually explained - she moved her wedding planner business over to the UK which is where she met him.
  • Call Back: In a match against Natalya she ripped out a chunk of the latter's hair. Six months later in a match, Nattie returned the favour...
  • Canon Discontinuity: Victoria Crawford was never the OVW champion, never.
  • Cat Fight: With Vickie Guerrero.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Got just the right amount of downplayed build-up so that her win at the Fatal 4 Way didn't come out of nowhere.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Very briefly in 2010.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Booker T, via using the Scissors Kick. Booker's even acknowledged the comparisons a couple of times on Smack Down.
  • Epic Fail: Two words - "hungry pirahna". Three more words - "Undefined Divas' Champion".
  • Evil Is Hammy: Dear Lord yes. See Buffy Speak above.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: As a heel her hair was always tightly curled or in an afro. After her Heel-Face Turn she wore her hair straight more regularly and whenever it was curly it was more relaxed.
  • Fiery Redhead: May be the first black example.
  • Finishing Move:The "Scissors Kick," recently a spiral guillotine leg drop.
  • Fragile Speedster: Only as a face. When she was heel she used a power-based moveset so many fans were shocked at how athletic she was after her Heel-Face Turn.
  • Girl Posse: On Smackdown she had Tamina Snuka and Rosa Mendes.
  • Hairstyle Malfunction: Her and Natalya used to do this to each other all the time.
    • Fake Hair Drama: The one time Alicia was heel when this happened to her, she did NOT take it lightly. She started biting Natalya's nails off.
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: Oh dear lord. And usually by default, too - she's literally been in the corner/teamed with known faces in one week, and then with heels the next - but, seeing as she's been Demoted to Extra, she doesn't get the chance to embrace either alignment on screen. A fan on Twitter actually asked her if she was face or heel and she responded "Both".
    • NXT is the only place this isn't an issue. She's always a heel there.
      • She did this a couple of times years before. She was a Heel on the Divas season of NXT but when Kaitlyn won, she was smiling and hugged her at the end. Also at Extreme Rules 2010 she appeared in a backstage segment with the other face Divas and was the lone heel there.
  • Heel-Face Turn: In 2011. After losing a tag match, her partner Natalya attacked her. Next time she appeared on TV, she was teaming with Kelly Kelly to solidify her face status. She's never had an actual Face-Heel Turn though. She's simply appeared on TV in the relevant role.
  • Hypocritical Humour: On "Outside The Ring" she orders a coffee saying she drinks it black to save the calories...right before gorging herself on a heart attack-inducing breakfast.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Foxy"
  • Insult Backfire: Instead of taking offence to Beth and Natalya referring to her as a "Barbie Doll Diva", she said she found it flattering to be compared to Malibu Barbie.
  • Last Name Basis: Other Divas seem to refer to her by her last name or by "Foxy". Even Gail Kim with whom she is a close friend, referred to her as Fox constantly in a shoot interview.
  • Lethal Chef: In the Christmas version of "Ask The Divas", Natalya, Melina and Kaitlyn all declared Alicia to be the worst cook. She had this to say in response:
    "I wouldn't even eat my own cooking. Not even the cereal"
  • Lovely Angels: With Eve and Kelly.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Subverted. She's noticeably very thin but has a lot of strength.
  • Nice Girl: Since her stint in ECWWE winning has always been her first priority. She usually is a good sport though.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: A tag team match on Superstars between featuring Alicia Fox and Maryse vs Melina and Gail Kim. Not only were Maryse and Alicia acting friendly towards one another when they previously had a mutual disdain but they started sobbing uncontrollably when they lost. This was never referenced or continued on again.
  • Perky Female Minion: To DJ Gabriel, though they were Tweeners at worst and to Michelle McCool as a full on heel.
  • Pretty in Mink: Her later outfits have a lot of fur on them.
  • Recycled Soundtrack: Her entrance theme since 2011 is called "Pa-Pa-Pa-Pa-Party," a piece of production music that was used by Maria back when she debuted in 2004.
  • Red Herring: Around the middle of 2011. She was the top heel on Smackdown and had gotten numerous strong wins, not to mention having a bit of a staredown with the Divas' Champion so many people were sure that she would be the winner of the battle royal to face Kelly Kelly at SummerSlam. But nope, Beth Phoenix won it instead. Did we mention she was on the SummerSlam poster as well?
  • Sassy Black Woman: Played with. She averts most black girl stereotypes. While she has sass as a heel, it's not in the traditional way. She's presented as more of a hammy ditz.
  • She's Got Legs: Not at first because she wrestled in long pants but she started wrestling in short skirts around May 2010.
  • Ship Tease: With Zack Ryder, and Edge. And again with Booker T.
  • Signature Move: As a face - single leg dropkick, split-legged sunset flip, diving back elbow. As a heel - northern lights suplex, tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, body scissors.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Alicia claimed Rihanna stole the look from her, to which Todd Grisham responded "I love the way you lie."
  • Speak of the Devil: Variant, while gloating to all the other wrestlers she had beaten about how they did not deserve a shot at her title she started to say Melina's catch phrase, only for Melina to come out and kick her ass.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Is taller than most of her coworkers/opponents
  • The Scapegoat: For Edge, in attempt to save his relationship with Vickie Guerrero.
  • The Three Faces of Eve: In her trio with Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres, Kelly was the child, Eve the wife and Alicia the seductress.
  • Villain Team-Up: Defied by LayCool. Alicia came to their aid but they turned on and attacked her, effectively losing their last ally.
  • Where Da White Women At?: Gender flipped since she's nearly always paired with white superstars, a good aversion of But Not Too Black.
  • Wrestling Family: Her sister is also a wrestler, WWE Tough Enough contestant Christina Crawford who competed in FCW as Caylee Turner prior to being released by the company.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Jillian Hall was singing her praises after Alicia Fox defeated the Bella twins, who had been cheating Jillian for months. However, Alicia proceeded to kick her ass too because the singing was so bad. (Jillian in turn pushed Alicia into the ring on a following Raw where she would catch a beat down from Melina.
