Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc has confirmed through “multiple sources” what the cause of WWE Hall of Famer and veteran producer Arn Anderson’s release on Friday, February 22 was.
Per the report, Alicia Fox arrived at a live event in an intoxicated state and Anderson, the producer for her match, allowed her to go out and perform. The original story claims Vince McMahon was irate upon finding out what had happened, and subsequently fired Anderson.
Anderson had been employed by WWE since the closure of WCW in March 2001, working backstage as a producer up until his firing, in addition to making various on-camera appearances over the years. “The Enforcer” was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012 along with Four Horsemen allies Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, and manager JJ Dillon.
According to Cagematch’s results database, Fox has not wrestled since February 10, when she, Mickie James, and Nikki Cross lost to Bayley, Dana Brooke, and Natalya at a live event in Saginaw, MI. It is not clear if this was the match in question, or if the alleged incident occurred at an earlier date.
Wrestling Inc claims that Fox was not at Raw last Monday in Atlanta.
