WWE Champion Bobby Lashley would advise against going too far when it comes to criticizing the company after being released.

"Stay motivated," was Lashley's first piece of advice when asked by Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda on what he would tell anyone released. "There were guys that contacted me in WWE while I was out and they asked, 'What's going on? Do you have any advice?' I always told them, 'If you're good, your talent can't be denied.' That's one. Two; never burn bridges. A lot of times, people leave the wrestling business or leave one organization and feel the need to badmouth them, I think that's ridiculous. Every one of us made our name from WWE or pro wrestling and made a lot of money. I look at it on a nightly basis when I tuck my kids in and the ability to put a roof over their head and give them things that I didn't have. The money that I made from wrestling, I'll always have respect for wrestling. Fans need to understand that if you see someone fighting one organization or the other, don't even pay attention to them. As a fan, walk away from it. They don't understand what the wrestling business is about. Everyone needs to eat and feed their kids. Everyone wants to have a good show. Instead of putting someone else down, just look at your own field and promote what you have instead of hating what you don't like. If you leave, leave with motivation and keep doors open for yourself."

Lashley was released by WWE in 2008, but returned in 2018 and is the reigning WWE Champion.
