Arn Anderson was fired by Vince McMahon for letting Alicia Fox wrestle whilst intoxicated

WWE fans were left surprised at the news from two weeks ago where Hall of Famer Arn Anderson had been fired from his role as a backstage producer.

Reports circulated weeks ago that Anderson had been dismissed after an incident occurred at a live event, where Vince McMahon had blamed Anderson for something and that it was the final straw.

Those reports also indicated that the two never really saw eye-to-eye for a good while but he was well-liked by key figures such as Triple H and John Cena.

The timing of the firing caused a bit of controversy too, as many assumed he would play a role on Monday Night Raw where it was the 70th birthday celebrations of his former Four Horseman stableman Ric Flair - and we now know how that segment transpired.

New details however have come out about the dispute between McMahon and Anderson and you can now see why he came to the decision that he did.

According to WrestlingInc, Anderson was the agent for a match involving female superstars, including former Divas Champion Alicia Fox.

Fox was reportedly intoxicated when she turned up for the event, and Anderson still allowed her to compete, potentially putting her fellow competitors in danger.

When McMahon found out about what happened he clearly hit the roof, Anderson took the blame for it all and he was let go from the company presumably there and then.

Interestingly Fox hasn't competed on Raw or at live events since February 10 in Saginaw, Michigan and a post on Twitter from that very event shows her moving very erratically, although this just could be in her character.

It's a shame for such a legendary name in the world of wrestling to lose his job in such a way, but there can really be no arguments for his dismissal.

There could potentially be a place for him in All Elite Wrestling, should he promise to not be so careless in the future.
