Diva Draft 2011: Alicia Fox to SmackDown

Welcome to the fourth annual edition of our Diva Draft feature here at Diva Dirt! If you haven’t been with us over the last couple of years, the premise is simple — each year, we make several predictions/suggestions for the WWE Draft in the lead-up to it taking place. This year’s Draft is set for Monday and promises to shake things up once again. Check back over the next week leading up to the Draft for our picks!


Two years ago a rising star in Alicia Fox was ripped from SmackDown, where she had made strides in just a matter of months, and placed onto Raw where, like many others, she ended up in purgatory. Sometimes seen, often not, Alicia has become a background player almost — this despite a two month run as Divas Champion. We want our big-haired, sassy Fox back!

With Layla presumably turning babyface, Alicia could perhaps regain her one-time spot as Michelle McCool’s understudy. I mean, think about it: she was with Michelle first, not Layla. Had she not be traded to Raw, would LayCool have happened? Perhaps with a chip on her shoulder that she didn’t get the titles and PPV spots that came with being part of LayCool, Alicia could make Layla’s life hell — and realign herself with her one-time mentor.

There’s also something to be said about a possible Beth Phoenix vs Alicia Fox feud. Unlikely a pairing as they may seem — of course, Beth is much more experienced and stacked like a bodybuilder — there’s something that intrigues me about this idea, perhaps because we haven’t seen it before? It would definitely be a fresh feud. Alicia, young, overzealous and eager, could want to ‘make a splash’ by taking out the biggest girl in the yard.

What we most want to see from Alicia, that we didn’t get to see much of on Raw, is some more personality. We know she’s got it, but it just needs the opportunity to come out.

Your thoughts? Alicia to SmackDown – yay or nay?
