Daniel Bryan's Height
5ft 7 ½ (171.5 cm)
American Professional Wrestler. In a directTv interview he said: "I always wanted to be a wrestler but I didn't think I could be because I'm relatively small. I'm 5'8 and weigh 195 pounds."

Remember that joe weller is listed by you as 5ft8 1/4 and he have a good inch in Bryan
said on 3/Feb/20
Look at this:
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Jan/20
Don't know too much about Gable, but Styles could be a solid 5'8". He's a much more legit 5'8" than Bryan is IMO.
Roderick said on 22/Jan/20
Daniel Bryan is 5'7" IMO
said on 22/Jan/20
Rob, this guy looks in 5ft9 range as you can see
But he is a lot taller than guy like Daniel Bryan
He looks at least 2 inches taller.
Daniel needs a downgrade, I remember aj styles have an inch on Daniel most of the time
5ft 7 flat for Daniel isn't exactly impossible, since at times he has only looked that, but other times I thought he might not be far off his claim.
Darian said on 9/Jan/20
Yes agreed! 5’7.5” tops for Daniel Bryan, and could even be 5’7”! For that reason, I can’t see Chad Gable/Shorty G at even 5’7”, more like 5’6.5” tops for him! And AJ Styles more like 5’8.25/5’8.5”.......
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Dec/19
He's 5'7.5" maximum IMO. I wouldn't rule out 5'7" or 5'7.25".
edwards said on 20/Dec/19
i wouldnt rule out flat 5'7 for him but i would say 5'7.5 is more likely.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Dec/19
And Adam Cole could be somewhere around a weak 5'9".
TheBat said on 22/Nov/19
Crazy that he's billed at 5'10", easily a weak 5'8".
said on 13/Sep/19
Who is taller Daniel bryan or maryse?
barefoot they might not be much apart, in heels she can look 2 to 3 inch taller than bryan.
Roderick said on 6/Aug/19
He does not look close to 185 pounds. His 210lb WWE billing his hilarious.
I'd say 160-170 for Daniel Bryan, he isn't a big guy at all.
I know a few people with his build who only weigh 150 pounds, so yeah I'm being generous.
Roderick said on 15/Jul/19
I bet he is 5'6.5" barefoot or something like that
said on 18/May/19Click Here
Only 0,6 cm of difference between bryan and styles ??
Annonymous said on 12/May/19
Not much shorter than newcomer Otis D who looks 5'8.5-5'9 and is an absolute monster at 300 lbs of more. Danielson is close enough to 5'8"
Bora said on 5/May/19
But how ?? He looks almost 5'11"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Mar/19
I always thought that Rowan would be the same height as Strowman, but I don't believe that's the case anymore, especially after seeing him next to Bryan.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Mar/19
Rowan's not looking more than about 6'5.5"-6'6" range next to Bryan.
rawdshaq said on 10/Mar/19
Daniel Bryan is probably about 5'7"
said on 17/Feb/19Click Here
Only 0,6 cm between aj styles and daniel ?
Barrett said on 13/Feb/19
Watched a video of Joe Weller meeting Daniel in a elevator and Joe looked a good 2 inches or 2 and a half inches taller and Joe Weller is listed 5,8 on his celeb heights page, Daniel is looking 5'6 max.
Darius said on 27/Jan/19
5'7.5" is the most likely height of Daniel Bryan seeing him with the likes of John Cena, AJ Styles, Johnny Gargano and many others.
burnitdownhomies said on 12/Jan/19
Has the build of someone who is 5'6.
Manpreet Singh Virk said on 9/Jan/19
Bryan's real height is 5'8.
said on 15/Dec/18
5ft7 is too low.
He didnt looked that short,We know the miz is 184 looked it with Manginello Click Here
Db is 172 looked that with Cena too
michael loughrie said on 14/Dec/18
I would say a 5' 7".
Jake the Snake
said on 13/Dec/18
Hey Rob do you think earlier in the day perhaps there's a chance he could measure closer 172.8cm ? he does a lot to look close to 5ft 8. Also do you think I would egde him out or him me ?
5ft 7-8 seems the range most people would estimate him. I think there is still a greater chance of 7.5-8 than 7-7.5, but at times he sure can look not much over 5ft 7.
Aaqib Khan said on 13/Dec/18
Met him 5’6
said on 26/Nov/18
Yeah, Rob notice he doesn't show the floor during the video? Funny...he's trained Antonio Brown on his show, a real 5'10, both in sneakers and he was taller by about 2 inches.
Yes, it was brought up a few months ago. I was surprised Jeff managed to get a measurement which was at least the same height as Anotio (who was just about to turn 22 when got NFL combined at 5ft 10 and 1/8th.
It makes no sense that Jeff is slighty taller, when in that video he's 2 inches smaller..
said on 25/Nov/18
Speaking of Jeff Cavaliere he just put a video up revealing his "official" height and weight showing to be measured between 5'10.25-5'10.5 and then he stepped on the scale and was 175 lbs in clothes. Something seemed fishy about the height measurement and that dude does not look 5'10.5 at all. He is definitely 170-175 however.
He either is 5ft 10.25-10.5 range or he's playing a trick with visitors.
All I can say is, anybody who watched my video 'Miracle Height Growth' will understand that a tape measure can be easily altered. I done it in the one take, measuring with the real tape and then we did the switch with the altered tape to 'show' a 5ft 10 measurement.
Zampo said on 23/Nov/18
5'7.5 is where I would put him at. Can't see him much over or under this mark.
said on 21/Nov/18
Rouglhy the same as AJ
Maybe a tad shorter
184guy2 said on 21/Nov/18
He isn't shorter than the listing
These under 5'7 claims are ridiculous
Others in his situation would try 5'9-5'10 like Bieber and Cruise
said on 16/Oct/18
169cm he looks 2 inches than 5’8 Jeff Cavaliere he’s a professional bodybuilder and trainer if u didn’t know.
Monkey knees said on 27/Sep/18
5ft 7in flat. Bryan Danielson himself says.
Shane said on 22/Aug/18
@Matt99 that's a lot more than a half inch. That's a good inch at least.
Matt99 said on 19/Aug/18
Jeff Cavaliere must be around the 5’8.25 mark, he’s got a picture with this guy on Instagram Athlean X. Jeff is standing closer to the camera so I imagine Daniel being a 0.5-5/8 shorter than Jeff.
Shane said on 19/Aug/18
Rob, this listing is way off. Will post a pic later with self-claimed 5'8" Jeff Cavilere (AthleanX) and Jeff has a good 1.5 inches on Bryan.
Leno said on 9/Aug/18
I think the 171 range suits him better, the 178-181 cm Shawn Michaels looks to tall next too him, even having to look down into him while taking, the 5'8 range is too much for Bryan.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 19/Jul/18
@Lawrence Giving height to the exact mm is rare in real life let alone in wrestling or other sports. However, certain wrestlers are actually honest in real life and don't inflate their height (DB being one of them as he's pretty much 5'8 according to the listing so he just rounded).
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 19/Jul/18
Hmm I always thought Bryan was 5'6 range but that could be because he has a big head therefore gives a smaller impression. Definitely more average than short although in the wrestling business he would be considered very small.
Lawrence said on 8/May/18
Too bad wrestlers cannot be honest and just give there EXACT height to the very millimeter. I don't know what it is but D.bryan looks shorter than most wrestler's maybe 5'7.5 but I think Rob has it pretty accurate. I'm exactly 5'8-5'8 1/8" and I almost always feel short. I think that 1" to bring it up to about average makes a world of difference in feeling more confident when it comes to height. I do not know how men do it being below 5'8" it makes you feel really under cut. Well at least thats how I borderline feel being 1" below average. Maybe a little inverse tabling and spinal compressiom may help
said on 8/May/18Click Here
Over 12 cm between the miz and bryan... i think bryan is 5ft 7 3/4 in shoes but barefoot he’s 5’ 7 to me
Anthony Hall said on 8/May/18
I worked a show with Daniel Bryan some years back. I'm 6 feet tall, but he wasn't a whole lot shorter than I am.
Conan said on 27/Mar/18
I'm 5 ft 9 3/4 in (177.2 cm) I think he is shorter than me full 2 inches (5 cm) so I give him 5 ft 7 3/4 in (171.9 cm)
Darius said on 30/Jan/18
I think Bryan is 5'7.5" than 5'7.75" especially taking that pic with 5'8" Zac into consideration. 171cm or a strong 5'7" was what he always looked with Cena, Orton and the rest. But I think 5'7.5" is what he is.
But sometimes I do think he can be 5'7.75", maybe one day we all will find out when Rob takes a pic with Daniel Bryan. Yes!Yes!Yes!
andre oliveira said on 10/Jan/18
Daniel bryan height is 172cm with shoes in the morning once wake up
is weight is 79 kilos
Sonu verma said on 9/Jan/18
He looks 5'7
Darius said on 31/Dec/17
I wonder what height Shane McMahon is. According to me, Shane appears solid 5 inches taller than Bryan. If Bryan is 5'7.5" which I think he is, then Shane O Mac would be 6'0.5" which would be in the John Cena territory.
Jozef said on 29/Dec/17
I'd say 5'7
Boba Fett said on 11/Dec/17
I think Styles' wrestling boots add a boost to his height, could explain why he looks a couple of inches taller than Bryan.
Darius said on 28/Nov/17
5'7.5" range is what he is, I think. To be precise 171-172 cm. Although I would say more 171cm than 172cm.
andre said on 22/Nov/17
168cm barefoot perhaps a weak 169cm john cena who is 185cm with shoes tower over him
said on 16/Nov/17Click Here
If Kevin owens is 178 cm Daniel bryan is 169 cm
Sacred said on 6/Nov/17
172-173 cm is correct for me
17 year old 5'6 said on 1/Nov/17
Doesn't Styles 5'8 look 2 inches taller than Bryan, that could mean Daniel is actually 5'6.... ? How come Styles seem so bigger.
Ricky said on 21/Oct/17
Earlier he was billed at 5'9" 192 lbs but when he won the world heavyweight championship in TLC 2011,the day after that his physical attributes changed to 5'10" 210 lbs on Raw.
I mean c'mon who gains 18 lbs in 1 day and 1 inch at 30 years of age.
Real Height is 5'7.75" at most and weight was never more than 190 lbs.
andre said on 20/Oct/17
169cm barefoot at night

I'm 6 foot 2.25 and had a half inche footwear advantage
Nice pic again, gj looks a solid 7 inches there so I initially thought 5'7.25" but then I see you had footwear advantage so closer to 5'7.5"-5'7.75". Interestingly thats also what he looked with another poster a while back and I see Rob has downgraded him so gj.
Joeyb33 said on 5/Sep/17
I agree, Christian.
said on 5/Sep/17
Looks 68in I could be off a bit just seeing him on tv is What he looks like...
Editor Rob: with Joey, in the post below, he could look not much over 5ft 7.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/Sep/17
He looks about 171cm with you. So roughly between 5'7.25" and 5'7.5"

Anonymous said on 26/Aug/17
Wwe like to lie about wrestlers height and weight by how many inches or lbs they claim. Daniel Bryan is 5'6.5 he's way shorter than Cena, Hart, also look at cm punk and Daniel Bryan . Cm punk is 5'11 and a half he looks 4-5 inches taller than Bryan.
andre said on 8/Aug/17
he says he is 5ft8 that with shoes not barefoot, downgrate rob to 169cm
said on 31/Jul/17
No way is he that close to 5'8". He is dwarfed by 5'11" Bret Hart. Bret may have been 6' in his prime, but today he is for sure in the 5'11" range. He dwarfs Bryan by easily 5-6": Click Here
And Bryan is closer to the camera.
He is 5'6.5" tops. I guarantee it. No way in the world is he less than 5" shorter than 5'11.5" max Bret Hart.
Here is a great shot of him with 6' John Cena: Click Here
Once again, he looks at least 6" shorter than a 6' man. At the very least his listing here should be dropped to 5'6.5".
Here's some more:
andre said on 25/Jul/17
he is about 169cm barefoot at night
even said on 18/Jul/17
morning : solid 172 cm night : solid 171 cm
Darius said on 17/Jul/17
After seeing him with 5'9" listed TJ perkins he seems max 5'7.75" as listed here. That is if TJ is really 5'9". Then with Brian Kendricks who is listed 5'7" Daniel seems more than an inch taller. Kendrocks may be 5'6" or around that in reality. Daniel Bryan is 171cm-172cm IMO. So this listing is not far off.
Darius said on 13/Jul/17
I am very confused about Daniel Bryan's height. I remember I thought Bryan as 5'8" guy but then at another moment he seemed a strong 5'6" guy. The problem maybe lies with the fact that some wrestlers use boots with thick heels.When Daniel is in segments with AJ Styles he looks more than an inch shorter. He also looks much shorter than Kevin Owens. I tbh thought James Ellsworth to be around 5'6.5" and Bryan seems very similar to him. With the fact that these wrestlers wear thick boots, I would say Daniel is around 5'7". or very close to it.
No Chance in Hell said on 10/Jul/17
Time for a downgrade, D Bry unfournately is much shorter, to be honest 169 cm is best bet. He seems bigger cuz he's buff I guess.
even said on 7/Jul/17
hes 5'7.5" trust me im serious
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 5/Jul/17
I don't think he's even 5'7.75" He's gotta be 5'7.5" at the very most, he looks a solid 5" shorter than Cena and many people on several forums have said Bryan looked about 5'7" when they met him.
Piyush samal said on 30/Jun/17
An styles and Kevin Owens wears lifts so they were only a good 1inch taller on sdlive other wise Bryan and styles are same (170cm ) with Owens 173cm
Peter175 said on 22/Jun/17
No doubt that Rob would edge him hard
Darius said on 21/Jun/17
I see a max 5'7.5" and min a fraction under 5'7" maybe.
But a 171cm guy is what is think he is in general.
John B said on 19/Jun/17
His only 5'6. A lot shorter then you really think.
Headbanger said on 29/May/17
A.J. Styles is 2 cm taller in that good video and Styles always looks short

zaq is 5ft8 with shoes so time to downgrate
Headbanger said on 19/May/17
Looks half inch shorter than zaq
James B said on 3/May/17
Looks 172cm with 5'8 zaq
Not sure if Daniel Bryan is standing with better posture than zaq though?
said on 30/Apr/17Click Here
i am 5'8 and 205ish
shoes about the same
Editor Rob: so would you have said he was above 5ft 7 up close then?
andre said on 24/Apr/17
Rob time to downgrate him he is not your height he is shorter as i told you he claims 5ft8 and even stefanie macmahon told he is 5ft8 in a raw show from wwe
i would guess his height barefoot at night from 168cm to 170cm max
Christian-196.9cm(6ft5.5)Noon said on 15/Apr/17
Solid 5" shorter than Cena.
said on 14/Apr/17Click Here
3:42-3:52='...your like what?5'8???Maybe 200lbs...This is one of the few times live on Monday Night Raw where they are nearly accurate with a wrestler's size.
It's strange cause he always looks around the strong 5'7(171cm) range .
Jozef said on 6/Apr/17
If you watch total divas when he is next to brie he looks alittle over 5`7
andre said on 7/Apr/17
Rob daniel bryan admit he is 5ft8 and this is with shoes why he is much taller here ?
his height barefoot at night is from 168cm to 170cm i would guess a 169cm
frvbgf said on 25/Mar/17
Look at around 2:30, AJ was wearing thick-soled boots during his stare down with Daniel Bryan.
justbringit said on 22/Mar/17
nice downgrade i agree with this styles looks taller than him.
John B said on 21/Mar/17
5'6 max look how tall he is next to A.J Styles who is 5'8. D.B is a lot shorter then u think.
ma said on 21/Mar/17
He is probably 172 cm in the morning...Probably around 171 cm at evening....Looks around 13 cm shorter than Cena ( strong 184 cm)
Marc said on 17/Mar/17
AJ styles seems taller than him on TV which took me by surprise I thought they'd be eye to eye.
Wrs567 said on 16/Mar/17
I still think he is too short to measure 172cm barefoot
But it's WAY better than the 5'8'' listing!
AJ and Bryan were in similar shoes in that segment.
AJ was out of his ring gear.
said on 16/Mar/17
Rob, Please watch from 25 seconds onwards
Daniel Bryan is a good inch shorter than AJ Styles
flat 5'7'' listing??
Editor Rob: certainly aj looks an inch taller...I'm not sure what footwear these guys have on.
said on 15/Mar/17
Looked 5'7.25" with AJ Styles on SmackDown Live. Click Here
andre said on 13/Mar/17
5ft8 with shoes not barefoot and i would say he is 5ft7.5 with shoes
he even admit 5ft8 for sure he is talking with shoes why would he say 5ft8 barefoot ?
time for downgrate rob i real dont understand this website you give to much to them
bryan is 5ft6.5 barefoot
nelo said on 6/Mar/17
daniel is 171 - 172.5 max
Wrs567 said on 1/Mar/17
Must be the shortest looking 5'8'' on the planet then
Honestly, Daniel can't be more than 5'7.25''
No way is he measuring 5'8'' barefoot
John B said on 1/Mar/17
Got to meet Matt Striker just recent and was very surprised how short he was (about 5'7) so I went and watched how tall he was with other wrestlers and he has Daniel by 2 inches when doing interviews which can be seen on YouTube - yes for D.B were looking at 5'6 tops a lot shorted then we really think.
John B said on 12/Feb/17
His a 5'7 guy...
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 2/Feb/17
I think it's time for a little downgrade. Everyone's keep saying that he isn't 5ft8.
Jamie said on 2/Feb/17
He's 5'7 and a half without shoes or boots.
rendi said on 23/Jan/17
this guy can never be 5'8 he looks like a 5'7 to be honest
Logan said on 15/Jan/17
He looks like a
5'7 not a 5'8.
The Exorcist said on 15/Dec/16
That's because his awesome beard keeps your eyes at the lower part of his face instead of the top! ;P
James B said on 15/Dec/16
I do think though rob if your 5'8 you can't pull of the overdeveloped look as well as a 6ft3 man.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 15/Dec/16
"Daniel Bryan's Height is 5ft 7.75in (172.1 cm)"
He looks a weak 5ft8 more often than he does a solid 5ft8. I believe Rob would edge him out if both stood side by side.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 15/Dec/16
James B said on 14/Dec/16
Rob since your quite similar height to Daniel would you say for a 5ft8 man he looks 'overdeveloped'?
The amount of body hair you grow has nothing to do with your height, don't be ridiculous. That's like saying a baby's final adult height can be predetermined by his race.
said on 14/Dec/16
Rob since your quite similar height to Daniel would you say for a 5ft8 man he looks 'overdeveloped'?
Editor Rob: James, I think if he trimmed his beard back to say 1cm max, he'd look taller.
Those scraggy long beards are visually detrimental to your height.
James B said on 3/Dec/16
He's a really bulky guy but unfourntantly in WWE would still get picked on because of his height

i felt you sould downgrate him

Rob, how much of a height difference would there be here?
Editor Rob: doesn't seem more than an inch
Jared said on 17/Aug/16
Looks about 5 inches smaller than 184cm Shane McMahon. There's a big chance Daniel's under 5ft8
heightchecker34 said on 19/Jul/16
Always looked like a 5'8 guy, regular average sized. Only in the wrestling world and the NBA would 5'8 be considered a shrimp. He broke the standard for what a professional wrestler looked like... even though there were plenty of other wrestlers who were around the same height, Chris Jericho (5'9.5'') Eddie Guerrero (5'8') Chris Benoit (5'9''), and Kurt Angle (5'10). A great example of how never giving up on your dreams can lead to a fulfilling life.
Leonardo said on 17/Jul/16
How big are the boots in average of a wrestler of the WWE? Robbo?
berta said on 1/Jun/16
he looks really small could even be a Little under this, maybe 172?

I'd say 5'7. I was able to stand next to him at an auto show recently.

Bryan is 172 cm at the best. He looks way shorter than punk and cena. He also wears boots tgat give a little advantage and still looks short than jericho and ziggler

if ric flair is 5'9 then daniel bryan is no 5'8 he is 5'6.5
said on 27/Jan/16
Rob Vegas did see Bryan as looking 5'7 in person but do you think maybe if you carry a lot of extra muscle you can look shorter than you are?
Editor Rob: sometimes width or body proportions can alter in-person estimates.
One reason I think some famous people can get seen shorter is that they are in movement and sometimes not moving with an upright stance whilst the person estimating is standing still.
said on 26/Jan/16
Rob do you think 5'7.5 is too low for Daniel?
Editor Rob: I think with any listing, nothing (unless a known measurement) can really be set in stone. At times he can look a bit under, but other times I think can do enough to look 5ft 8.
andre said on 9/Dec/15
he is not 195lbs more like 180lbs
andre said on 9/Dec/15
Rob he might be 5ft6.5 or 5ft7 barefoot he looks much shorter then punk
NewHorror said on 2/Dec/15
Hard to believe he's 5'8. It's kinda tricky cause he looks way shorter than guys who are 6'0 and above. For example when he's standing next to Punk it's kinda hard for me to see him as a legit 5'8 dude.
Dingus said on 23/Oct/15
195 lbs is not small, especially at his height.
Manny said on 30/Sep/15
Billed at 5"10 I thought 5"9 was right but 5"7 c'mon guys I would love to know exactly how much height wrestling boot hells give and I mean heeled shoes are usually 3/4of an inch and work boots a full inch so insoles maybe?

I think he could be close to 5'8". He looks taller than Neville and 5'10-5'11 Dolph Ziggler has about 5 inches on Neville and 3 inches on Daniel.

Orton is a FULL head (9.5"-10") taller than Bryan! Bryan must be slightly over 5'7"

Kane has been doing flying clothesline since his debut
How's that for a flying move? and he never broke his ankle too (despite having bad legs and heavy weight and big boots)
So lifts are nothing of importance in this equation
miko said on 19/Mar/15
A guy like Bryan would never wear big thick boots in the ring, his style wouldn't allow it as he'd break his ankles. Bigger guys can get away with bigger 2 inch boots as they aren't flying around, like a prime Kane used to do.
nayhole said on 12/Mar/15
LOL he isn't 5'8 with lifts on. He is a weak 5'6. Everyone towers over him from the referees to the divas.
said on 15/Feb/15Click Here
Carsten Schäfer claimed 172cm in his youth and is listed 171cm today, Bryan looks only marginally taller so I say weak 5´8" for Bryan.
Rob would edge him I believe
:D said on 15/Feb/15
at the Tribute to the Troops event last year when he confronted Rusev he actually said he was 5'5...
5'7 says said on 9/Feb/15
Not more than 5'9. He is short in front of chris jericho who looks 2 inches shorter than Cena (claims himself to be 6 ft tall).
Austin said on 27/Jan/15
5'7.5" 180 lbs is my guess on Bryan's height and weight.

5'7"... 195lbs..... no where near his billed height and weight
Ssingh said on 29/Dec/14
5'8. Looks it.
MusaTroll said on 27/Dec/14
Daniel Bryan is is 5'10 according to wwe. He does'nt look anything near that height. Back in july 2013, a few weeks before summerslam on Raw he was cutting a promo and he claimed 5'8. I think a full 5'8 is possibe but less likely, he is more 5'7+ barefoot because he was around maybe 5 inches shorter than Cena who claims 6 ft.

Please Rob we think Daniel is shorter then 5ft8 downgrade is height for 5ft7.5
roy said on 23/Nov/14
he was wearing some gucci looking casual plimsolls on total divas once, brie and all that money may have paid off on him lol 5'7 flat for d-bry
fedz said on 15/Nov/14
seriously daniel pick better shoes than that, i ain't even that good a dresser but would not be seen dead in that monstrosity you call footwear lol still a cool wrestler and cool dude. 5'7 flat
said on 12/Nov/14
Here DB can look spot on 5'8''
Other times he can look low as 5'7''. Maybe he is 5'7.5''. I still don't think he is a full 5'8'' like Rob.
fsd said on 12/Nov/14
looks 5'7 ft
The A-List said on 8/Nov/14
Rob I think you have an inch on him. No offense but Daniel Bryan looks short in person. But still he's a good wrestler.
genes said on 6/Nov/14
never looked 5'8, looked smaller. i would say 5'7 flat and maybe 5'8 in wrestling boots. great wrestler just wish he wouldn't wear those casual old man shoes. good thing brie seems to have had some effect on him lol
SAMMY DERRICK said on 29/Oct/14
I'm 5'8(173cm)and 150 lbs on a heavy day...
So a 5'7-5'8 guy who has a full beard and average can get a beautiful lady like a 5'5 brunette...Brie Bella.I'm not saying that he is a bad looking guy cause he has a boyish face with blue eyes..

@Heart: Rey Mysterio????
Attitude said on 28/Oct/14
I'm 5'9.5 and most people guess my weight at around 200 lbs. I'm actually only 183 lbs as of right now. I was 185 a few months ago. I will say that I look just as big or bigger than Daniel Bryan. I think Bryan, at his height and muscle mass to fast ratio, if not on steroids, would probably max out at 170 lbs. 175 would be stretching it. If he got shredded, then he'd be in the 150 and 160 range. A 5'9 guy who at a low body fat preventative below 10 percent would be 175 lbs. Honestly, Bryan looks to be in the 12 to 15 percent body fat range with 15 inch arms. He does have well built legs which could be giving him a heavier weight. So there's that.
If he's 5'7.5, 180 is really stretching it. Look at dynamite kid, now he was easily 200 at around the same height.
Heart said on 27/Oct/14
Even Daniel Bryan in 5ft 8inches tall!!! I am only 5ft 7in & 164 lbs. I don't think I can lead my career to professional wrestling. :-(
Clay said on 11/Oct/14
andre says on 11/Oct/14
Daniel is about 5ft7.5 and 182lbs not 195lbs:$
Ok guy, Cuz you've measured him and put him on a scale personally right.
andre said on 11/Oct/14
Daniel is about 5ft7.5 and 182lbs not 195lbs:$
Clay said on 9/Oct/14
I can believe 190-195 lbs. I've been 190 at my highest at 5'9'' (185 right now), and im no way thicker than him. i mean yeah my frame is a little longer but he is thicker probably, and it's not like he's shredded either where you weigh less.
said on 8/Oct/14
Rob in my opinion he is 5ft7(170cm) and 5ft8 with wrestling boots and 185lbs(85kilos) im correct?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 7.5 isn't impossible but 5ft 7 flat? I'm not convinced he would be just that short.]
Height181 said on 7/Oct/14
@Clay: The camera angle is the same for everybody in that picture! Goodness sakes man...
''and thats four huge dude's he;s standing beside..''
So What??? Lol.. What's that got to do with anything??
Clay said on 6/Oct/14
Height181 says on 1/Oct/14
I don't know how this guy is guessed at 5'8''. Click Here He looks around 5'6.5'' here. Look at Cenas legs and his relaxed posture, Still look more than 4 inches taller than Bryan.
You do realize that camera angle doesn't favour him, and thats four huge dude's he;s standing beside..
But actually I agree he isn;t properly 5'8 he;s like 5'7.5'' evening.
Omid said on 3/Oct/14
sometimes he looks very close to 5'7 but I think its because of his not so good posture...still 5'7.5 is a possibility.

He gotta be a 5'7 guy becaus Chris benoit is 5'7 duh
Kourosh177cm said on 1/Sep/14
Daniel bryan is a huge guy hes nowhere near small in society among the normal people.
5'8 is not short below average yes.
as i said before there is heightism in WWE. Eddie, daniel, chris jericho , chris benoit and lance storm who are from 5'8 to 5'10 have been called short in WWE.
Kourosh177cm said on 1/Sep/14
there is extreme heightism in wwe.
SaveUsY2J said on 24/Aug/14
Somewhere 5'7.5-5'8 range, nothing outside of that. I think he and Stephanie McMahon would measure almost identically barefoot.
miko said on 11/Aug/14
I've only seen Bryan up close once and he looked weak 5'8 range. 5'11.5 CM Punk had around 3.5/4' on him, and 6'0.5/6'0.75 Cena had maybe close to 5'.
I can't buy 5'7 flat, that is just too short.
Yupintotheyup said on 11/Aug/14
Daniel Bryan is way shorter than this.
said on 10/Aug/14
Rob how much do u think he weighs since he is the same height as you?
[Editor Rob: he looks at least 30 more pounds, probably heading into 190's]
ab said on 28/Jul/14
5'7 isn't small, ur pretty much 5'8 in shoes and thats close to average. 5'4 and under is small
James B said on 27/Jul/14
Lol you guys think bryan is small? I am 5' 7 and weigh 143 pounds and I'd say that's on the small side.
linke said on 17/Jul/14
5'7 and best in the world. Huge fan of this guy.
Daddy said on 13/Jul/14
I'm going to guess Bryan is 5'8.25" out of bed, and 5'7.75" in the evening. Judging by his height relative to Corporate Kane (was wearing dress shoes), Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella.
Alex 6'0 said on 2/Jul/14
Vegas, yea 180 to maybe 185 is my guess on Bryans weight at 5'7 range. 5'7 180 built is no small man. Bryan isn't very big but he's got some size
Rynnn said on 1/Jul/14
Can look 5'6 a lot
said on 26/Jun/14
Clay says on 22/May/14
Vegas, you should know what I meant when I said mainstream star. He's a star among the WWE fanbase, sure - but to the lamans who aren't die hard wrestling fans (the majority of people), hate to inform you that he's a nobody.
a nobody doesn't get a full page dedicated to him in usatoday Click Here
again he isn't austin or rock obviously but calling him a nobody is downright disrespectful. the wyatts only debuted 10 months ago on wwe tv. nobody becomes a star straight away. its took 2 years of the best booking wwe have ever created and working alongside the biggest real life heel in the wake of montreal (vince) and biggest and most notorious sporting star at the time (mike tyson) to become the mega-star he became. austin and rock were incredible talents but wcw for years didn't know what to do with austin and wwe themselves booked him for months as the bland ringmaster and the rock as the goofy generic rocky maivia.
Two Pump Jump, i think this meme sums it all up :D Click Here
alex, i have a friend who is a pro wrestler and around 5'7 and he told me he weighs 170lb, bryan looks more than 10lb heavier than him in that clip.
Alex 6'0 said on 25/Jun/14
Here with John Cena and Bella twins. haha I know the Bellas are so hot! But Bryan isn't a small man at all. Terms of height yes he's on the smaller side but say he's 180-185lb range. He has lower body fat and is built. Not saying he's very big but he has size. Average 5'7 guy at his weight isn't as big as him. Him near Cena he's gonna look small since Cena is 240ish
Alex 6'0 said on 25/Jun/14
Looks more 5'7-5'7.5 range. He's not below 5'7 I don't think. I'm more curious on his weight though. No way is he his billed 210lbs. Even his 195lb claims seems too much. 180 at 5'7 range seems right. In WWE yea 180 is small at 5'7 but in reality if you're 5'7 180lbs with some muscle and lower body fat you aren't a small guy at all. You can be quite built. Not saying Bryan is pretty big but he has some size on him.
Dago Red said on 24/Jun/14
This cat needs a down grade. I'm 5'6" and he's barely over me even in his ring boots.
IMO said on 22/Jun/14
5'8.5 in footwear
Zoro said on 8/Jun/14
@Height181 yup, if Danielson were 5'8 shouldnt he hit Cena's eyes whit the top of his head? Considering there must be at least 11 cm from John's head to his eyes, so these stands at 173 cm, and Bryan is clearly under them..
Bryan 5'7.25/171 cm at best, IMO
Two Pump Jump said on 6/Jun/14
He looks 5'7" . i could debate wrestling for hours as im sure alot of people here could. I dont think wrestling is good anymore, and not even close to what i belive to be the best years 1990-1996, but its all relative to when you grew up as a kid. The young kids today will look back 20 years and think this was the best era. ( no one will ever top the Macho Man!)
SaveUsY2J said on 30/May/14
@Height181: Bryan isn't holding good posture in any of those photos. Also, Cena is 6'0.5"
Clay said on 22/May/14
Vegas, you should know what I meant when I said mainstream star. He's a star among the WWE fanbase, sure - but to the lamans who aren't die hard wrestling fans (the majority of people), hate to inform you that he's a nobody. That goes for Cesaro, Sheamus, Wyatt family, like a said earlier - basically every modern star they have tried to create isn't half of what Rock and Austin etc. from the precious era blew up into.
said on 20/May/14
not to send this whole thread off topic but bryan being small has nothing to do with anything. mayweather is small and a megastar.
bryans worked his a** off the last decade to get where he is and deserves every bit of his success. this is a guy who a few years ago working for $50 a night detached his retina in match and contemplated retirement only for his dad to change his mind at the last minute. he isn't as popular as the rock or austin were at their peaks but to say he isn't a star is also silly. mick foley is a great guy but he wasn't that big a star and was lucky to have been around when austin and rock were breaking records. i was there in msg at mania 20 when chris benoit won the whc and he was nowhere near as popular as bryan is right now...thats clearly the reaction 20,000 people give to a guy who isn't a star Click Here
Clay said on 17/May/14
James - yeah I agree. Pro wrestling is unwatchable now, Daniel Bryan is not a star at all and for him to be one of their ''go to'' guys atm is laughable. And he's small at 5'8. The Rock, Stone Cold, Mick Foley, Triple H, Undertaker etc. those are real mainstream stars not like the scrubs they have today, sad to see as a wrestling fan but the good era (1996-2004) is long gone.
Bob said on 13/May/14
Met him at ROH show in Toronto. 5'8" with his shoes on...
James B said on 6/May/14
I think under 5'8.
I am probably in the minority but I just can't stand his wwe character. Completely over hyped and annoying. Same with newcomers wyatt family and shield they just get way to much tv time and don't hold a candle to veterans such as stone cold and the rock. Wrestlers like sandow on the other hand deserve more limelight since he has a certain old school wwe style.
Mario said on 20/Apr/14
@Vegas, yeah in a complete U-turn, I have seen the evidence and it seems to screem out that Daniel can't be a 5ft 9 guy. He is 5ft 8 guy at best.
Mario said on 19/Apr/14
@Vegas. At times Bryan looks 5ft 6 and at other times he can look a full 5ft 9. As widely known, it's probably because Wrestling cameras make the screen flatter and wider so it distorts the heights and weights of wrestlers.
Vegas said on 18/Apr/14
on the network during the daniel bryan documentary william regal (who is legit 6'2 standing tall) towers over bryan standing fully straight. convinced me more than ever than 5'7 is probably bryans correct height
Mario said on 16/Apr/14
Yeah, @bulli305 you're shorter.
bulli305 said on 16/Apr/14
I blv Danielson is 5'8 sharp, I reach 1.85m with shoes but I've never took measurements without shoes, does that mean I'm shorter than John Cena barefoot?
Alex 6ft 0 said on 15/Apr/14
5'8 max for him. I think Rob would edge him out a bit in a picture
Mario said on 13/Apr/14
Until we get him on Rob's stadiometer we will never truly know :P. He looks short at times and of average height at other times. I'm inclined to believe he is a cm or two over Rob's height.
Vegas said on 13/Apr/14
I thought between 5'7 and 5'8 in person when i saw him up close in a hotel last year...closer to 5'7
Clay said on 12/Apr/14
Mario says on 8/Apr/14
He downplays his height as does Cena. Why? to avoid controversy and divert attention away from this. He is over 175cm barefoot in the morning.
No he certainly isn't..
Mario said on 11/Apr/14
Seeing him is not best indicator of height, eye-level, shoes and ground level are all factors. Heck I always take claims without pictures with a generous sprinkling of salt.
gnops said on 11/Apr/14
When I saw him at Smackdown in September he didn't look more than 5'7"-5'7.5"
Byron T. said on 8/Apr/14
5'8'' tops! Like John Cena, he's one of the few rare wrestlers who are honest about their true height.
tony t. said on 7/Apr/14
He's awesome. I think he's barely 5'8 though. 5'7.75.
Zoro said on 6/Apr/14
Jericho is probably just 176 cm and Bryan appears to be 2 inches shorter in that photo (the camera gives him advantage)so 171-172cm (5ft7.25 or 5ft7.5) seems spot on for Danielson
Always remember that wrestler's billed height is >> than their real height, usually by 1, 2 or even 3 inches
said on 6/Apr/14
@Height181- He's not that low, he's only two inches shorter than 5'9.5"-5'10" Chris Jericho:
Wanyama said on 4/Apr/14
I can't see him being over 5'7" and I doubt he weighs 195 lbs either.

he is too small to be an A+ player.

He looks 172,i hope Triple h beats him at Wrestlemania.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 4/Apr/14
Nice Rob, im glad you added him hes an awesome wrestler and my mates favorite, i always thought he looked 5ft 8 range, i dont think he's particulary small like he says he is, 5ft 8 to me only looks just below average, maybe averageish do you think he might be in the same range as you Rob? 5ft 8 1/8-1/4 range?
Zoro said on 3/Apr/14
Once in the wwe they billed him 5ft9
Then in the last months in the storyline that should have sold him as a B-class wrestler not adequate to be the face of the company, D.Bryan has been defined a "dwarf" as tall as "5ft7 or 5ft8"
To me he can be everywhere from 170 to 173, I would personally be prudent at 5ft7.5
miko said on 3/Apr/14
Close enough to it to claim it. He's somewhere around 5'7.5 to 5'8.
James B said on 3/Apr/14
He doesn't look this tall
