Under 6’1”. He was exactly the same height as the 6’ 1/2” Miz on Tough Enough. During his run with WWE he wore lifts and thick soled boots. I dunno why these guys like Ryback and Sheamus feel like they need lifts when they’re over 6ft but there you go.

I’ve said all along that 6ft1½ is possible for him. Just under 6ft2 you could say qualifies as that. Surprised he doesn’t claim 6ft3 though
miko said on 23/May/19
I asked him on Instagram yesterday how tall he was barefoot.

He replied 'just under 6'2 barefoot'.

I guess that isn't an extravagant claim as he is likely that height early in the day.

186-187cm range looks closer than 185cm
Kimblemur said on 9/Apr/19
6’1 max

Legitimate 185 cm .
K.A 188 said on 25/Jan/19
185-187 range nothing more nothing less.Always knew that the 191 google gave was ridicoulusly exagereted.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/18
I think he can pull it off
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/18
Rob, is 6ft1½ arguable for this guy?


I can understand 6ft2 guesses for him. 6ft3 barefoot is a stretch though
Editor Rob
6ft 1.5 might be the highest I'd try arguing
Manpreet Singh Virk said on 21/Oct/18
Ryback is 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/18
He looks slightly taller Ryback but not 6ft4 lol...maybe 6ft2?

Rob would you say that guy was 6'4 and 185 pounds?
Editor Rob
He didn't look much different in height than Ryback!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jan/18
I'll go with E then. F as Rob said his lowest
Canson said on 17/Dec/17
Option F is how he looks.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 16/Dec/17
@Rampage

That's a very broad range.
McBurger said on 15/Dec/17
I was watching a 2010 segment where he was talking with William Regal (billed as 6ft2, so he's around 187cm), and Regal was taller than Ryback.
185cm is spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/17
I think he could look anywhere from A to F
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/17
Rob, which of these is most likely for big Ryback?


A) 190cm/188cm
B) 189.5cm/187.5cm
C) 189cm/187cm
D) 188.5cm/186.5cm
E) 188cm/186cm
F) 187.5cm/185.5cm
G) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob: the highest I'd argue is D, lowest probably F, I think he can seem an honest 6ft 1 range.
Ricky said on 22/Oct/17
He is perfectly 6'2" not 6'1".
A strong 6'2" guy.
Dem said on 17/Aug/17
On his podcast he said he was always measured at exactly 6'1.75".
even said on 17/Jul/17
a legit 6'1" . i think he weighs around 300 pounds .
even said on 7/Jul/17
6 foot 1 exactly
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/17
I always thought he was another 6ft1-2 guy getting billed at 6ft3 by WWE. Ultimate Warrior, Curt Hennig, William Regal, Booker T, Vince McMahon, Steve Austin and Seth Rollins are the others
heightchecker34 said on 22/Jun/17
On his podcast, Ryback was talking about how he hated to be the short guy when mentioning about a meet-n-greet with fellow wrestlers, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. He joked that in pictures together, hopefully they would be sitting, so he can preserve the "Big Guy" gimmick, and said guys, sorry i am not a giant, im only 6'2.

I am sorry, I still see less than 6'1 for him, he always looked the same height as John Cena (184 cm), similar to Bray Wyatt.
Socrates said on 12/May/17
i doubt that he's over 6'½
Sammy Derrick said on 4/May/17
And he said,I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT I WAS GOING TO BE LIKE 6'4 OR 6'5 BUT NOW I'M BARELY 6'2.

Rob, is a bit over this possible?
Editor Rob: yes, you could make a case for it...I still feel the current mark seems ok, but never rule it out!
jack said on 23/Mar/17
he def 6'1 anything under is a joke
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/17
5ft11 is a joke
DrunkRhino said on 20/Feb/17
Solid 6'1
Hogan said on 20/Feb/17
6'1.25(186)
Randomdude said on 19/Feb/17
I think 6'0 would be as much as I could give him

as another user said he looked in the 5'11 range when he was on tough enough
Cj said on 19/Feb/17
On his table for 3 episode on the WWE network, there was a tiny bit of talk about height. Claims to have been measured at 6'2 his entire life, Bryan and Ziggler laugh and disagree, Ryback also says "Dont start this with me, this the one thing" stops talking/cut off, goes on to say "thats another thing, we are all the short guys". Seemed like a bit of an unwanted topic to talk about on Rybacks part.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/17
More 6ft1-6ft2 than 6ft-6ft1…
Moreno said on 2/Feb/17
He looks a decent 6'1 with Cena
Strong 5ft9 said on 1/Feb/17
@Wrs567 Ryback probably 6'0.75", if Cena is 6'0.5"
Wrs567 said on 1/Feb/17
Guys please go to exactly 3:04 on this video and say who looks taller, Cena or Ryback?

Click Here

They both look 6'1'' there
Danimal said on 1/Feb/17
Between 6'0" and 6'1". Same height as John Cena.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Not sure about 6ft2 but 6ft1½ is definitely an argument I'd make. Could be around 6ft3 in wrestling boots...
The Ben said on 31/Jan/17
Met him a few months ago in Mansfield.
6'2, definately over 6'1. I stood right next to him.
He's a monster
Realist said on 30/Jan/17
Wow thought he was huge.
David said on 30/Jan/17
I'd say ryback is anything to 6'1-6'2
Importer said on 30/Jan/17
@Sammy Derrick
This guy was 6'1 since 12? that must have been some childhood.
miko said on 30/Jan/17
He looked barely over 6'0 in his Tough Enough days next to 5'11.75/6'0 Miz.

HHH has an inch on him and when Cena stood tall face to face with him there wasn't a lot in it at all.

Barefoot he's likely in the 6'0.75 range, his boots are quite big.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
186cm, Rob?
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Jan/17
This guy would probably be taller than Mark Gatiss if I'm trying to be an average person or make a near close to overall accuracy.
rikashiku said on 30/Jan/17
He's definitely looked in the 6'1" range. On Tough Enough he looked to me as the second shortest guy. Just a bit taller than the Miz who looked about 6'0" flat or a strong 5'11"(he looked it next to Al Snow who wasn't much shorter than both of them.) and both Nick and Daniel looked a little taller, I think both listed at 6'2".

Even on NXT, he was just shorter than Tarver and a lot shorter than Barrett.
tony t. said on 29/Jan/17
I always thought 6'1.5 tbh.
Randomdude said on 29/Jan/17
I'd guess 6'0.5
Sammy Derrick said on 29/Jan/17
He has great proportions...so 6'1(185cm) which is a great height for someone who started bodybuilding @12 years old.
Wrs567 said on 29/Jan/17
Ryback and Cena looked the exact same height next to each other in 2013

But considering Cena has hair, Ryback is probably a tad taller in reality

It would be interesting to see how Ryback would look next to a 2003 John Cena

Cena was almost the same height as Lesnar back in 2003, remember on Smackdown?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jan/17
He looked 186-187cm range w/h Cena and Punk.
heightchecker34 said on 29/Jan/17
hmmm... interesting that you are going with the 6'1 height. To me, he always looked like a 183-184 cm range guy, who wore huge lifts to keep with the "Big Guy" persona. If you see him in the clip with John Cena and CM Punk, he always looks the same height as Cena (184 cm), however he does also look larger in out of wrestling pics, because he does have a large, jacked body similar to Cena, so they can look larger than their real height. I think he is in the same height range as Cody Rhodes, Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn, The Miz, and Dean Ambrose... all guys that can easily pass for 6'1, yet are in the strong 6'0 range. I will stick with 6 ft. 0.5 inch until some definite evidence proves otherwise.

Max Height: 6 ft 1 in (185 cm)
Min Height: 6 ft (183 cm)
MDV said on 29/Jan/17
Good listing Rob! He was always taller than Cena and shorter than HHH! for sure he is in the range 185-186 cm... even 6 ft 1.25 is possible
James B said on 29/Jan/17
He made John cena look 6ft max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jan/17
Never bought 6ft3 but I don't think he's less than 6ft1...
John said on 29/Jan/17
Raybek higher than John Cena, Click Here which is 6'1 "
Mayfield said on 29/Jan/17

TK said on 29/Jan/17
