The actions of the Minneapolis crowd during Monday Night Raw last night have left one WWE Hall of Famer 'embarrassed'.
Taking to his official Facebook page in the aftermath of last night's action from Target Center, former Superstar Mick Foley expressed his shock, anger, and disappointment at the actions of those in attendance.
The issues that sparked his outrage? The way spectators chanted for home town favorite Brock Lesnar during the Divas match, showing a lack of respect, in Foley's eyes, towards the female wrestlers.

"Chanting for anyone - even if it is a returning hometown hero like Brock Lesnar - while women are working their asses off to entertain them is not just disrespectful," wrote Foley after urging the current Divas to seize their moment.
"As a wrestling fan, I was embarrassed. As a friend of both participants in the match, I was hurt."

Although Mick Foley was left unhappy with the actions of the WWE crowd he did see a silver lining to their harsh treatment of the Divas.
"In my wrestling days, I would have tapped into those feelings of embarrassment and hurt and let it out in a promo...why not take a chance and let one of the women walk out to the ring with that same opportunity I was given?"
Whilst he vented frustration at WWE fans in his Facebook post, the crux of Foley's frustration appeared to be at how WWE had handled the Divas since they were thrust into the limelight recently.
He wants one of the stars, whether it be one of the new breed in Charlotte Becky Lynch or Sasha Banks, or the likes of the Bella Twins and Paige, to grab the initiative. Lets hope that happens this weekend at SummerSlam.
