Did the WWE wrestler become well-known Hollywood superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and is he really 6ft 5in tall or is he lying about his height?
The world of professional wrestling is full of secrets. Over the years, many secrets have been uncovered after it became common for wrestlers to break kayfabe on social media and in interviews. A few secrets hidden from fans about WWE have caught on.
Masking crowd chants and fabricating a huge attendance figure aren’t the only two secrets that aren’t supposed to be known. It turns out that the real statures and weights of the wrestlers are also made up.
Let me tell you about AJ Styles’ bodyguard.
At 7ft 6in, he is taller than Big Show and is the third tallest wrestler to ever grace WWE.
His name is Jordan Omogbehin, a former basketball player who was born in Lagos but emigrated to the United States at a young age.

Former chairman Vince McMahon has always had a propensity for the company’s big players. The enormous size of TV superstars was meant to create the belief that they could move mountains and that no one outside of sport could match their feats of strength.
Over the years, many superstars like Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio and many others who didn’t call themselves “big guys” have proven that size doesn’t matter between the ropes. However, even their heights are exaggerated.
The truth about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s height
Increasing the height and weight of TV wrestlers adds to their larger-than-life personalities. One of the most searched questions on the internet is how tall is Dwane Johnson aka The Rock in real life?
According to his WWE billed height, he was billed as being over 6ft 5. As powerful as The Rock’s character was in WWE, his height made him an intimidating contender.
The Rock is a gifted athlete and has the archetypical body type befitting a wrestler. However, his appearances outside of WWE have many fans wondering if he really is 6ft 4 or 5 as they say he is.
Here is an image of the Rock and his on-screen rival John Cena whose billed height is 6 feet 1. As you can see, the Brahma Bull does not appear to be 4 inches taller than Cena.
Reportedly, the former WWE Champion wore shoes during his time in WWE for the benefit of looking tall enough to pose a threat to other wrestlers taller than him. The Rock himself claimed to be about 6’4 tall. However, the Hollywood star is more likely to be around 6’2, just like his cousin, Roman Reigns.
There are also comparisons on social media in which The Rock is seen in pictures with other athletes whose real heights are known.
