Raw Star pulled from Mixed Match Challenge due to injury

Alicia Fox Raw

Before yesterday’s Royal Rumble match, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle announced on twitter that Alicia Fox has been injured.

It’s not known when or where she suffered the injury but the company reports that she is suffering from a broken tailbone.

Due to the injury, she was pulled from the Inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble. After the PPV, the Raw star made the following Instagram post, commenting on being forced to miss the historic bout:

Since then, she has also been removed from the ongoing Mixed Match challenge web series where she was expected to team up with Goldust .

There is no word yet on her replacement for the show but WWE is expected to announce it this week. How long she’ll stay out of action is not known either but we’ll keep you posted.

    that was another consideration alongside Molly Holly.
    although I guess they would have had a comedy entrant anyway.

    I would also say Kairi Sain is the more likely of the NXT additions purely because Ember Moon is a natural seeing as she is womens champ.

    As he said “took” her spot I was assuming he was talking about the Rumble as it is past tense. If he had said “who will take” then I would assume Mix match.
    I suppose its just a matter of interpretation. No harm no foul.

    I was talking about for the mix challenge

    Maybe Vickie ?

    It wont have been Mickie or Tamina as they were already confirmed for the Rumble. It would have been one of the legends or NXT talent.

    Could be Molly Holly. I know they often do smoke and mirrors with this thing, but after the quote she gave about contacting WWE to find out if she was in it only for them to say no, if that is at all genuine, then maybe they either dropped her into the spot or contacted her after Fox was removed. (I cant see that they would take her off mixed match challenge as well unless its is a genuine injury)

  • Arnold Jackson

    You have Tamina and Mickie James left, so I would GUESS Mickie James?

    Man, I hope that this is a legit injury and not WWE playing shenanigans with her career (again). Regardless, I wonder who took her spot.
