The WWE unveiled the new Universal Championship on Sunday night at SummerSlam, with Seth Rollins and Finn Balor going face to face to become the inaugural champion.

Following that match, Rollins took to his personal twitter account to send out a message to the fans in the stands who decided to try and hijack the event by booing and chanting about the new title and that it looks ugly.

Rollins wasn't having it, saying how disappointed he was in them, and now the former Shield member has some backup in the form of Mick Foley.

The RAW general manager followed up on Seth Rollins' tweet with a Facebook post of his own, and it was long. Very, very long. Let's take a look at some of the best bits.

"Finn Balor and Seth Rollins had a GREAT match last night - a match that I was HONORED to watch from ringside," Foley wrote. "But instead of that element of magic necessary to turn that great match into a classic, what Finn and Seth got instead was the stench of self-congratulatory snarkiness from a a very vocal minority of the sold-out Barclay's Center."

"But a couple thousand self-important chanters, mixed in with 14,000 other people who genuinely WANT TO WATCH THE FREAKING MATCH is an awful distraction."

Foley went on to add that while the Universal Title isn't something he would have chosen, the Hardcore Title was meant as a joke being all broken and taped together, while the WWE Championship belt he won absolutely stank of beer and mildew - but he still loved it completely, just like Balor will have after winning it.

Foley then went on to the big guilt trip, saying that Balor had his family flown out to see him win the title and that the crowd did their best to ruin that moment.

Damn, don't cross GM Foley.
