Ex-WWE Star Opens Up About Incident At Show Which Led To Them Going To Rehab WWE

TW: Alcoholism

Former WWE star Victoria Crawford (fka Alicia Fox) has opened up about an incident at a house show in 2019 which ultimately led to her going to rehab.

During a Twitch stream, Crawford thanked WWE for “paying for her sobriety”, noting that she’s forever grateful for all the support she received when dealing with her alcohol issues.

Crawford recalled an incident at a house show in which she was told she ‘looked drunk’, noting that the match she was set to compete in was changed, leading to her feeling stressed about that situation.

Recalling other WWE stars walking in while she was having a field sobriety test, Crawford said:

“It actually changed my whole life. This is what got me into rehab, which I’m forever grateful. Forever grateful that company had that support.

“I guess the rumor mill is everyone was saying I looked drunk, I look like I’m bumping crazy. I have no idea. I’m in the match, guys. I don’t know.

“I was kinda rushed and stressed about changing the match… I don’t know what’s going on. Here’s where the mic drops. I don’t really know how to put this. But this is true.

“By the time I got out of my match and I’m being taken out by the medical team… and they give me a field sobriety test in the training room and it’s like no Arn, no producer, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman are like popping their heads in there, they’re like asking me what day it is, what city we’re in… I felt like such a failure.”

“I still haven’t even been able to talk to him about this. And that was a bridge built water deep, I don’t know. And I went to the locker room, I packed up my stuff, and the girls came in acting all like they didn’t know what was going on.”

Crawford confirmed her WWE exit in May, following 17 years with WWE.

Her in-ring return has been announced, which you can read more about right here.
