WWE Rumors: Arn Anderson fired for allowing a drunk female Superstar to wrestle
What's the story?
Arn Anderson was recently fired from the WWE after being with the company for nearly 18 years. The reason behind the move has finally been revealed as WrestlingInc confirmed with various sources that the WWE Hall of Famer apparently allowed an intoxicated Alicia Fox to perform at a live event, which led to his ouster.
In case you didn't know...
Arn Anderson made a name for himself as part of the legendary Four Horseman stable along with Ole Anderson, Tully Blanchard and Ric Flair. Anderson also won the World Tag Team and Television titles during his time with WCW.
He was picked up by the WWE after Vince McMahon took over the Ted Turner-led promotion in 2001 and was later on handed duties of being a road agent. He would go on to become the senior producer on Raw and has also been credited for being the driving force behind the rise of stars such as John Cena.
Anderson was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012 alongside his Four Horsemen stablemates and has been occasionally used on TV over the years.
The heart of the matter
As revealed by WrestlingInc, Anderson was the designated agent for Alicia Fox's match at the live event in question. The former WWE Divas Champion came to the house show intoxicated and instead of pulling her off the show, Anderson gave her the green signal to perform.
This naturally angered Vince McMahon, who immediately took the decision to fire the WCW legend. According to reports, the veteran and McMahon's relationship has always been pretty volatile and this latest incident proved to be the final nail in the coffin.
Fox last worked a match at a live event on February 10th when the team of Nikki Cross, Mickie James, and Fox lost to Natalya, Bayley, and Dana Brooke. She has been kept off TV in recent weeks and was not even present backstage on the most recent episode of Raw.
While Anderson has been duly punished for his decision, it seems Fox too is in the doghouse for her rash actions.
