Gable Steveson’s terrific performance at the Tokyo Olympics helped make him a well-known name in the world of sports. WWE went the extra mile in getting Steveson to sign a contract as even Vince McMahon personally met up with Steveson to sign him. It seems Bobby Lashley gave him useful advice as well.

WWE finally managed to sign Gable Steveson to a contract last month and put all speculation to rest as far as where the 21-year-old will go next. It was also reported that Gable Steveson signed a unique contract with WWE, which is exclusive in nature.

Gable Steveson also previously admitted that Brock Lesnar was a huge influence in him signing with WWE as Lesnar’s career path was something Steveson found helpful. Lesnar also gave him once-in-a-lifetime advice during his freshman year in college.

While speaking with Planeta Wrestling, former WWE Champion Bobby Lashley discussed the conversation he had with Gable Steveson. Lashley then revealed what advice he gave him as well.

“Good for him. I mean, I was an amateur wrestler growing up, and he’s an Olympic champion. He’s just shattered everything. And being so young, I told that kid because he called me a little while back and he asked me for some advice and everything like that, and I was like, “Man, just keep your head on, don’t get into any trouble, keep training the same way you’re doing, and you’re going to be a very wealthy man.’ I think he’s doing great.”

Gable Steveson was drafted to Monday Night RAW during this year’s edition of the WWE Draft. The company is also setting up a remote training facility for Gable. Even Kurt Angle said he would love to be Gable Steveson’s manager. It remains to be seen he will fare in the company once he makes his debut there.
