Mick Foley is 100 percent behind the Black Lives Matter movement. On Monday, the WWE Hall of Famer went to Twitter to post a Black Lives Matter graphic. Pro wrestling fans were very familiar with the graphic as it was in the form of the New World Order (nWo) logo, which was a very popular faction back in the late 1990s.
Because of the Black Lives Matter Movement causing a lot of passion both sides, Foley got tons of responses from Twitter users. However, the former WWE Champion also received a message for Dave Bautista, who showed a ton of respect to Foley for posting the graphic. Foley knew he was going to lose followers, but it didn't bother him one bit.
Foley retired from wrestling back in 2012 after starting his career in 1983. He has spent time in several promotions but is best known for his work in WWE. In his WWE career, Foley was a three-time WWF Champion, a WWF Hardcore champion and an eight-time WWF Tag Team Champion. And of those eight times, three of them were with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Here's a look at fans reacting to Foley's post.

All Lives Matter, and to those who get all angry over my statement are clueless, because when I say "All" that includes Black people, but also more White people are killed by black people in England these days compared to White people killing Black people— Michael Poole (@VampireMike2004) July 27, 2020
They just question the narrative of "racist cops gunning down innocent black men"
The biggest problem in the black community isn't a few dozen shootings by cops, over multiple years

Dude I’m not “huge” on the BLM movement (all lives matter to me, not just the blacks) but I’d definitely wear a NWO style BLM shirt. Awesome.— Austin Blair (@austinblair) July 28, 2020

The MOVEMENT is great!!! The ORGANIZATION is trash and I hate to see it even mentioned.— 🐺essentialis lupus🐺 (@cpenny81) July 27, 2020
Black lives do matter, but the language from BLM is a little problematic to say the least.
You won't lose me as a follower, but as a celebrity, I understand your inclination to avoid upsetting the masses.— The Nate-ture Boy (@NathanC493) July 28, 2020
Yes black lives do matter. But the organisation/movement behind #BlackLivesMatter is a hate group and I’d never support it or take a knee for it— Massimo (@Sam_PUFC) July 27, 2020
