Though Steveson has a lot of talent, one thing which he lacks is experience. But The Almighty is not short of experience. In fact, he is one of the most experienced wrestlers on the WWE roster currently.

Speaking to Planeta Wrestling, Lashley talked about the advice he gave Steveson after the latter called him. Steveson is yet to make his debut in WWE, and The Almighty told exactly what the Olympic Gold Medalist needs to do to be successful in WWE.

Lashley said, “I was an amateur wrestler growing up and he’s an Olympic champion. He’s just shattered everything. Being so young, I told that kid because he called me a little while back and he asked me for some advice, and I was like, ‘Keep your head on, don’t get into any trouble, keep training the same way you do and you’re going to be a very wealthy man.’ He’s doing great.” (h/t: Fightful)
