AJ Styles real height is 5'10.

@michael

Even Cena and Lesnar aren't billed by their true heights. The ony one I can think of today that's almost accurate is Rollins, and even he isn't a full 6'1" IMO. Maybe weak 6'1" like 184-185cm.

@michael loughrie Generally a wrestler tends to be overbilled by 2 inches but sometimes it can be more. It all depends on how tall they want that wrestler to be viewed as by the public. Lesnar, Orton, Cena and Reigns are the few off the top of my head currently who aren't overbilled by much.
michael loughrie said on 11/Nov/18
If a wrestler is 5' 6" - 5' 9", they get billed at 5' 11" lmao. If they are 5' 10" to 6' 0", they list them as 6' 2". Notice a pattern? Most guys over 6' 2" are given hilarious heights like 6' 5", 6' 6". The only wrestlers I know who are billed at their true heights are John Cena, who is 6' 1", and Brock Lesnar, who is 6' 3" (even listed in UFC as 6' 3").

Aj Styles is about 5' 8".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Nov/18
@Armageddon

Styles is clearly taller than Bryan everytime they stand face to face, even when they're both in wrestling gear. Styles is 172-173 while Bryan's 171 IMO.
Armageddon said on 10/Oct/18
Just saw the smackdown highlights for October 9th 2018, Daniel Bryan and AJ styles have the same height Rob. Don't they Rob? Also you know AJ wears a taller heels but he still couldn't qualify as a 5'8 in front of Daniel.
Cody said on 22/Aug/18
Just saw a dark match with him and Daniel Bryan vs. Samoa Joe and The Miz. Him and Daniel Bryan were standing straight up, right next to each other, virtually the same footwear, and they were the exact same height. Whatever Daniel Bryan is (probably 5'6"?) AJ is too.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 11/May/18
@Digger Nick

That's believeable. He looks to be around 5'8" maybe 5'7.75". He's clearly a bit taller than Daniel Bryan who I guess at 171-ish.
Digger Nick said on 10/May/18
I was standing at ringside as A J stood right in fron of me shaking hands with us. He was standing on at least 1 inch of padding that WWE has around the ring. He was still a little shorter than me, and I'm 5'9". So without the 1 inch of padding, I'd say he's 5'8" or even just a bit shorter. I was surprised how small he was.
cansis said on 18/Feb/18
looked a little shorter than listed 5,8 frank trigg
Taylor said on 10/Feb/18
No way he's anything over a low 5'8". Even in his shoes, Aj is dwarfed by anybody 5"10 or over. If he's really 5'11, then Dean Ambrose must be 6'6" because he towered over him. James Ellsworth looks to be about 5'6".
Sarah said on 4/Feb/18
5'9" range
Dave98 said on 3/Feb/18
Rob, 5'8.25" or 5'7.75" more likely for AJ Styles?
Editor Rob
Probably a good enough chance of a solid 5ft 8 range.
Logan said on 3/Feb/18
Kevin is about 5'10" and AJ looks looks quite a bit shorter so 5'9"
Samir Yusuf said on 26/Jan/18
AJ, definitely no less than 5'10.5" I very smart person, so I know. Fyi.
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 18/Jan/18
Looks a good 5’8.5” with John Cena. Cena’s eyeline should hit 5’7.5”-5’8” yet Styles is barely able to cross it maybe by 1 cm.
The height expert said on 15/Jan/18
In some photos with Cena he looks 1.72/1.71
andre oliveira said on 14/Jan/18
170cm barefoot for aj at night
JJStyles said on 5/Jan/18
nah he looks 5'9.5in
Darius said on 2/Jan/18
AJ wears thick boots for sure as he appeared slightly shorter than now back when he debuted in WWE(for example with Chris Jericho, John Cena). He gives off a 5'8.5" range impression nowadays especially noticeable when with Daniel Bryan and Finn Balor for example. I would say take away the possible footwear advantage AJ Styles is a legit 5'8" flat guy in my opinion.Maybe I'm wrong , but thats what I think it is.
andre said on 1/Jan/18
AJ is about 5ft7 barefoot at night and daniel bryan is 5ft6 barefoot at night
Tony said on 30/Dec/17
LOL, listed 1.80 and 99kg.

To me, he is 1.73 and about 78-80 kgs max.

If balor is about 175 cm, aj styles isn’t 173 in this picture.. for me is about 170 cm barefoot
What do you think Rob ??
Editor Rob: wouldn't say there was a great amount between them.
Cansis said on 19/Dec/17
4:07 a smudge taller than dainel brayn Click Here Kurt had over an inch on aj in Tna would say aj is around 5,8 mark
Digger Nick said on 13/Dec/17
I was front row at a WWE show a week ago and stood next to him. I'm 5'9" and he was an inch shorter than me. 5'8" is spot on.
Abe said on 3/Dec/17
Aj looks like 5'11" but I wonder if he was 6'0" back then
Darius said on 28/Nov/17
Rob, if you are not dismissing the idea of AJ Styles at 5'9" there what's the reason for listing him an inch off from 5'9" i.e. 5'8". I think if 5'9" is arguable I think AJ should be listed more 5'8.5". What do you say ,Rob?
(I would say Styles is 5'8" flat at most)
Editor Rob: I've not seen enough yet to go with the mark, but of course I'm not dismissing it out of hand.
andre said on 9/Nov/17
170cm barefoot at night and about 187lbs
Scott said on 23/Oct/17
@ regmen, I agree. I think roughly 5'9'' is a good fit for him.
regmen said on 22/Oct/17
i see more weak 5'9 these days, i used to believe he was 5'7 but he really doesn't look completely short infront of 5'10 to 5'11 guys like dolph ziggler, kurt angle, kevin owens etc. maybe its his footwear but i am beginning to see him as a bit taller than he actually is, the best way to tell would have to be rob or myself meeting him in person.

5'8.75 shortest
5'9 tallest
Anonymous said on 17/Oct/17
Hes short...i really would like to see a picture of you with him rob...
Jinx said on 6/Oct/17
Rob I think he's taller than you.

I think he may be 5'9" because he looks an inch taller than Daniel Bryan who is around 5'8" I guess.

Do you believe it??
Editor Rob: I wouldn't dismiss the idea of 5ft 9, though seeing him in the ring with big John Cena, I wouldn't have guessed him as tall as that mark.
Darius said on 6/Sep/17
I think 5'8.5" is a little over the top. Best bet for a maximum height maybe 5'8.25". I think the 5'8" is perfect for now.
rikashiku said on 18/Aug/17
He could be 5'8" or 5'8.5" He's smaller than a lot of the guys he's in the ring with so he will look tiny to us because of that unfair comparison. NExt to Xavier Woods, he doesn't look that much smaller.

@andre said on 25/Jul/17

83 and 93 is a big difference between each other. That's saying 183lbs to 205lbs. That's a big difference. Also, Daniel Bryan was legitimately 210lbs on his return to WWE. He was asked about his weight being legitimate when he was in the Indies, but he responded that he's being called by his real weight for the first time in the WWE, which was 210. AJ Styles is a lot bulkier than Daniel Bryan was when he was competing. Definitely bigger than Buddy Murphy looks right now, and he's about 207lbs.
omarrRKO4life said on 28/Jul/17
No Way That Aj Styles is 5ft7 I am Sure That His real Height Not Less That 174cm But No More Than 175 he is about 5ft9 beacause The Diffrence Between Him And Cena is 9 cm Or 10cm Max
chris said on 25/Jul/17
AJ looks like he's 5'8 next to Cena and Kevin Owens. He's not over 5'9.
andre said on 25/Jul/17
rob how much he weights lets say from 83kilos to 93 kilos
Sepanta said on 20/Jul/17
I also think he is 5'8.5".
Darius said on 13/Jul/17
I would say 5'8-5'8.25 very similar to Rob. But I sometimes think that he wears thicker wrestling boots hence why he looked quite taller than Daniel Bryan. IMO Bryan might be 171 cm and Aj styles 173 cm. He pulls of 5'8.5" on TV. Because when with Cena clearly there is 4 inches between AJ and Cena. Cena's 6'0.5" max IMO.
Elvin Mah. said on 12/Jul/17
Give him a 5'9". Some say 5"8 and 5'10" so give him a middle.

Enjoy said on 2/Jun/17
He walks like he wears lifts but they don't look as severe as Jerichos. Or Sheamus for that matter(Why a 6 foot plus Sheamus would wear lifts is anybody's guess.) I'd say AJ was 5'8.5" based on what I've seen of him in the ring with the likes of Anderson, Samoa Joe and Owens.
Ali said on 28/May/17
Because that 1 inch (2.5 cm) makes the difference.
Van said on 17/May/17
How come no one in wwe jokes with Aj's height, but they were all trolling Daniel Bryan? They are almost the same height after all. Is AJ wearing lifts? I doubt it is very comfortable wrestling and jumping around in lifts ..
andre said on 28/Apr/17
Rob tell me how much he weights lets say from 185lbs to 205lbs ?
Sepanta said on 30/Mar/17
It seems like he's 176-177 cm with heels.

unsung war said on 31/Jan/17
You can spot his reach is so smaller than his height, actually theres a study that show that reach is almost the same as the actual height, he does show his reach alot of time during his show off in the ring,
That make it easy to understand that he stick hidden heels down there
unsung war said on 31/Jan/17
5'5 at night 5'6/6.5morning he does wear lifts in the ring all time its very obvious his tibia area thickness is like 7.5 inches and the heel is remarkable, plus hes dwarfed from all superstars even with lifts.
zaq said on 31/Jan/17
in a pic wit john cena whose 6'05 on here he's like 3-4 inches shorter than him idk about 5'8
tony t. said on 27/Jan/17
Yep. He's shorter than Jericho that's for sure.
andre said on 15/Jan/17
How much he weights rob 188 lbs ?

give me your idea
Wrs567 said on 6/Jan/17
He doesn't wear lifts! That's ridiculous!

Have you seen any of AJs matches? Have you seen the way he flips and flies around the ring?

If he was in lifts doing that, he would break his ankles! it's common sense

and yeah I'd say about 5'8.25'' for him. Very similar to Rob

5'8-5'8.5, Rob how much do you think he weights in reality, around 185-190lbs I'd say??
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 27/Dec/16
"AJ Styles' Height is 5ft 8.25in (173.4 cm)"

Strong 5ft8 for AJ, as he edges out Daniel Bryan, who in my opinion, is a weak 5ft8.
yurles said on 25/Dec/16
i would say 5'8 barefoot and maybe 5'9 in footwear/wrestling boots. he did look close to dolph ziggler this week and many people have said dolph is 5'10 to 5'11.

Hey Rob,

Looking at this pic, how tall is Jeff in real life?
MDV said on 15/Dec/16
This guy use massive lifts. He can pass easily for a 5 ft 9 guy but he has big reinforced soles when he wrestle.
Mike T said on 9/Dec/16
If AJ is 5'7", then how tall is Daniel Bryan because AJ is a little taller than Daniel?
Guest said on 8/Dec/16
I guess James Ellsworth is 5'8 too since he looks the same height as AJ styles
nilac said on 3/Nov/16
AJ gives the impression of being taller than he actually is, he could easily pass for a 5'9 guy, until you see him standing next to a guy like Cena, that is.

He always gave me the impression he's in the 5'7 range, though 5'8 isn't far-fetched.

I think 171-172 cm. Not quite 5'8"
c'mon seriously that dude 5'8? said on 1/Oct/16
both jericho and styles aren't 5'8, they clearly have so shorter body parts than a regular 5'8 guy, jericho is 5'7.5 barefoot and styles 5'7 or a hair over
they are the only superstars that wears lifts frequently in order of showing the 2 or 3 inches diffrence to fool the world
rob standing near aj styles without shoe advantage shot will clarify what im saying
Ben Cult said on 31/Aug/16
Zack Sabre Jr. I would have to say 5ft 11in standing next to him.
Guts said on 21/Aug/16
@AJSherick

The NJPW Stats list them that way as they made the conversions totally wrong lol. Their heights are in decimals for example 5'11 is 5.9ft hence why AJ is listed as 5'9.

It's why you wont find a single 5'10 or 5'11 guy on that site due to the shoddy conversions.
Jared said on 17/Aug/16
My guess

AJ Styles - 172cm
Karl Anderson - 179cm
Luke Gallows - 197cm
Big E - 178cm
Kofi Kingston - 179cm
Xavier Woods - 171cm


All 6 of them (with the exception of Gallows) are below 180cm. Pretty short by pro wrestling standards.

Strong 5ft9 said on 8/Aug/16
Hey Rob, what do you think of this? WWE decided to overmeasure AJ Styles at 5'11" and in NXT (part of WWE) they decided to list Rhyno as 5'10". But during a match in TNA between him and Rhyno, when the camera was right on them. You could easily tell that Rhyno was definitely taller than AJ by a good 2 inches in this video Click Here at 2:32.
Editor Rob: not really looked that much at Rhyno yet

Dan said on 18/Jun/16
Agree with below, I'll never know how anyone believe Karl was 6'1, I mean the guy wore reasonably thick shoes but still always looked 5'10-5'11 but yet again in Japan and Mexico you can be really audacious.
AJSherick said on 3/May/16
Whether he's 5'8 or 5'9 there's no way that Karl Anderson is anything like 6'. Seeing him on Raw Anderson only looks an inch taller than AJ.
Destino said on 1/May/16
Sounds legit, although he can look shorter sometimes.

They list Chris Benoit at 5'7 though, which is extremely odd

As you said, I wouldn´t go with old superstars listings, the current roster seems to really be measured barefoot wich normally would be morningheight.

For the record, New Japan's site lists AJ at 5'9. Their database is an interesting source, as it doesn't seem to follow kayfabe, at least not on recent wrestlers. Most heights are 2 inches under their normal billing, which is unheard of in wrestling.

Nice find!

They have Cody Hall at 6´7.91" and Harry Smith at 6´4.3", sounds like they really measure them.

You can even play with the number at the end to find some hidden entries on a huge number of wrestlers. Essentially anyone who's ever wrestled in NJPW. Older wrestlers seem to still be kept in kayfabe (I don't believe Inoki is 6'3, or Akira Maeda is 6'4) but there are tons of interesting resources. I tend to take these pretty seriously.
alexbigguy said on 31/Mar/16
kevin owens is 176 cm max.look at him with rollins or ziggler
Sam said on 18/Mar/16
Didn't appear that much shorter than Kevin Owens, whom many people agree is a 5'10 guy. But with Jericho on the other hand he looked noticably shorter... Must be the lifts.
Angle said on 27/Feb/16
I've always wondered at the heights of the New Day as Xavier and BIG E are both listed as 5'11. After looking at AJ's match against the New Day on smackdown i think Xavier is more 172cm, BIG E probably 177cm and Kofi i'm not too sure on. Sometimes he's easily the tallest of the group and sometimes he doesn't look that much taller than Xavier so i'll probably say 178cm for Kofi.
EzioAuditore711 said on 23/Feb/16
I'd say AJ is 5'9". Jericho is a known lift wearer.
The Ben said on 21/Feb/16
I would say 5'8 minimum.
He was a regular at 1PW wrestling shows at Doncaster in 2006-2007. Met him a few times, he looked about 205lbs back then, he was bigger than today and judging from old pics I'd say he was on something to enhance his physique.

I'm surprised how small he looks in WWE, perhaps he's lost a little height?
There's no way he was 5'7 back then. I would have said 5'9 AJ and 5'8 Austin Aries.
Jericho is no taller than 5'9 but he could easily be wearing lifts of some kind.
Paul said on 17/Feb/16
Aj Styles=5'7.75"-5'8"
Chris Jericho=5'9.5" with lifts, 5'8.5" without
Sam said on 15/Feb/16
In all honesty, I would have guessed 174cm for AJ and partly because Y2J likes to use height enhanced footwear so we know the difference isn't as big as it may seem. Then again I don't think Y2J is taller than 176cm so even then its questionable.
Danny said on 14/Feb/16
Y2J is billed 6'0/6'1 to AJ's 5'10/5'11 so just add the difference and some change and 5'9 1/2 for Jericho is correct. To call Jericho's lifts are an understatement, their slightly lift boosters, similar to those of Sid Vicious(hence the lack of stability and resulting broken leg).

He doesn't strike me as a 5'7 guy either, but he looked noticeably shorter than Jericho, and not just by one inch. I'd say he's 172 cm.

Wonder why he was billed at 5ft10 during his entire 18 year career, and all of a sudden, when he enters WWE, he magically grew an inch taller...

Seems around this height. Was around 6 Inches Smaller than Reigns and was only about an Inch smaller than Jericho.

5'7.5-5'8 range guy.

Why so low Rob?
Editor Rob: I think the guy can look somewhere in 5ft 8 range
Sam said on 7/Feb/16
Nice listing! I thought he could be taller than this when he was in TNA, but next to the likes of Jericho I wouldn't peg him more than 5'8 range. Somehow I see him edging Bryan though..
