Kofi Kingston's billed height in wwe as 6'1, real height is 6'0.

I sat/stood at 3rd row from ringside at WWE Live event in Helsinki, Finland with the floor seemingly being on the same level from my position to the ring (with the addition of an inch or more of padding around the ring). And I have to say that when it comes to height I felt underwhelmed by every wrestler I saw. The show itself was great fun.

I have been measured 179cm (5 feet 10 15⁄32 inches) tall myself and Kofi was no taller than I if not shorter when he came near the ringside wall. Same with Samoa Joe who is billed 6'2". Shinsuke Nakamura, Rusev and the Usos gave me the impression of being about my height as well. Kevin Owens was clearly shorter, 5'10" max with shoes on. Lars Sullivan, while massive man, didn't give me the feeling of being any more than 6 ft tall if even that. No way he was 6'3" like WWE claims. Charlotte Flair looked like maybe 5'7" or 5'6". Daniel Bryan no taller than her. Rowan was most difficult for me to judge being he was clearly taller than I was but even he didn't seem like more than 6'5" to me. Zelina Vega was just tiny. Can't even throw in a good guess. Obviously these were impressions of people moving around instead of standing there to be measured but still.

@Ali
I wouldn't quite say 2 inches. More like 1.5"-1.75". If Kofi's 5'11", that makes Seth around 6'0.5"-6'0.75"

Kofi doesn’t look much shorter than him.

He always holds up to 6’1ish guys and makes Becky look small.

@Edtior Rob,

I Agree with Ali!
Click Here

Seth Doesn’t look 2inches on Kofi and same goes with Cody.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I'd have said around 2 inches between them...5ft 11.25 may well be a reasonable figure for him.
Ali said on 10/Apr/19

Kofi had a stare down Seth Rollins this week on RAW. If we believe 6'1 for Seth Rollins, Kofi looks a good 2 inches under him and both men are stood straight with strong posture.

I'd put Kofi even in the 5'11.5 range based on that.

What do you say Rob?
FE said on 5/Apr/19
@Editor Rob,

1.25inches right!

So, Either Kevin is no more than 5’9.75” or Kofi is Min 5’11.25”?
There can be only one option.

Which is it going to be Rob?
Editor Rob
Posture and footwear is something to consider too.
FE said on 4/Apr/19
@Editor Rob,

By Good Inch, U mean 1.25-1.5 inches right?

I still don’t see just 2-2.5cms between him and Kev, from all I’ve seen Kofi always looks an easy 1.5-2inches taller than -/+5’10” guys like Big E, Marrese Crump and Possibly Chris Jericho.
Either Kevin is 5’9.5 or Kofi is 5’11.5”, It’s got to be one option only! and i overall wouldn’t guess Kofi under a Solid 181cm.

Do u agree Rob?
Editor Rob
1.25 is very possible

@Editor Rob,

There's no way he is just an inch on Kevin, either Kevin is shorter 5’10 or Kofi is taller than 5’11!
Either way, it looks more like minimum 2inches between the 2! He’s not even shorter than McMahon.
The Average guess seems to be closer

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I'd have said a good inch, but Kofi posture/eye raise makes it look more.
FE said on 18/Mar/19
@Editor Rob,

Who do u think has Potential of measuring 181cm? Kofi, Robin Shou, Adam Rodriguez, John Boyd, Sting or Maybe Irrfan Khan?
If it has to be one guy, who would it be?

I feel these guys look near 6ft on screen but generally can look a Strong 5’11” range quite often, if not 5’11.5”.
Editor Rob
Not the Sting of recent years, but in 80's and 90's you could see him as a stron 5ft 11, similarly Boyd/Rodriguez are arguably looking that height on TV a fair amount.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Mar/19
Kofi WWE official height was given 6'0 which is at least a height with shoes on. Didn't think he can be over 5'11. Listing here is legit.
TheBat said on 6/Mar/19
Definitely not the worst billing for a wrestler, 5'11" is solid for Kofi. I wonder what R-Truth's real height is? I know he isn't 6'1" or 6'2" like he's been billed.
Sim1993 said on 6/Mar/19
So Christian do you think dean ambrose is right height at 6ft 0.75 or a bit taller cause on one hand he looks that height or he looks more than that
Nik Ashton said on 5/Mar/19
It’s great to find out his height!
CZV said on 5/Mar/19
Rob who's taller between Kofi and Rusev?
Editor Rob
I've not paid as much attention to Rusev.

@Sim1993
Cagematch, or whatever it's called, doesn't really list accurate heights of wrestlers. It's no more reliable than any other Internet site listings. Celebheights is by far the most accurate, even though I don't agree with some listings here.

Rob please make a page on samoa joe
James123 said on 4/Mar/19
Hey Rob can you add Xavier Woods next? He's listed as 5'11" but he's definitely way shorter than that.
FE said on 4/Mar/19
@Editor Rob,

Yes, He can look 5’11-11.5” zone with Christian….

He’s not much shorter Christian, Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any more pics or Vids of them Together.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not dismissing 181 range for him.
rawdshaq said on 2/Mar/19
Maybe 5'11 1/2"?
Rejdis said on 2/Mar/19
Hi rob! I love this page keep going you are doing a great job! I wanted to know if you publish the morning height or the evening height of the celebreties? If i was e celebrity and my morning height is 181.5 cm and my lowest is 179.5 179 cm is ok if i say im 1.80 m ?
Editor Rob
Think more afternoon rather than morning. You could claim 180cm yourself if you want.
Sim1993 said on 2/Mar/19
Christian it says somewhere probably on cagematch that woods is 5-8 same as aj being built 5-11 and I’ve seen a picture of big e and he looks 5-9.75 to 5-10 around Kevin Owens height
Angle said on 2/Mar/19
If anyone wants to do a deep dive on Xavier Wood's instagram he posted a selfie with himself next to Levar Burton and looked a little shorter. I'd give Xavier 5'6.75", but he claims 5'10.

Commenter VEGAS met Kofi and Bret

He doesn’t look shorter than HBK, Jeff Hardy or even Jimmy Fallon.
He also makes Sheamus look no more than 6’2” there! and can really look 5’11.5” range a lot with other celebs you’ve met.
BTW The Poster VEGAS (claims to measure 6ft in shoes) has thought that Kofi was the Same height as Bret (assuming he’s 5’11.5” range by then).

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
Could he look 5ft 11.5 with Christian, I am not as sure on that.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Mar/19
5'11" is fine. One of the few WWE wrestlers who's billed not too far from his real height. Unlike his partner Xavier Woods who's probably only around 5'7" but billed at a ridiculous 5'11".
Manpreet Singh Virk said on 28/Feb/19
Actually billed in wwe as 6'1, real 6'0.
SD172 said on 28/Feb/19
Very well proportioned 5'11 easy

@Editor Rob,

But in these other clips?

Generally, I'm honestly more convinced that Kofi is nothing under Solid 181cm! could even look 182cm at times.
He has looked 4 inches on Daniel Bryan, Never really looked much shorter (if taller than) MVP at Times
From what I’ve seen there's only 1 inch, (I repeat) 1 INCH MAX! between him and Cody.

Rob, Maybe 181cm is closer?
Editor Rob
There is a chance of 181, at the moment I still would go with roughly 5ft 11.
FE said on 28/Feb/19
@Editor Rob,

U mean this footage?
Click Here

Kofi looks taller than MVP there, but Mark is towering both of these guys! I still think Kofi is a Solid 181 guy and MVP was a Solid 6ft peak and Now lesser than before.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
Yeah, Henry makes them both look nearer 5ft 11 there.
Mr Rashid said on 28/Feb/19
Seen him in wwe for the last decade and to me, I though he can look close to 6 foot.
FE said on 28/Feb/19
@Editor Rob,

Thanks for the Page Rob, But I think 181cm fits him better!

He never looks 2 inches shorter than Cody, Either Cody needs a downgrade to 6ft or Kofi needs an Upgrade bcuz there's really only 1inch max between them!

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I can see why he has looked 5ft 11-11.5 range at times. I don't know where the video is, but he was with mark henry and I think 5ft 11 fitted him then.
