He's deceptively taller than what meets the eye, I guess. I would put money he's no taller than 5'10" (my 5'7" was a gross under-estimation, but he's small). He's as tall, if not shorter than Roderick Strong, and Strong isn't close to 6'0" either.

I'm like the same height as Bobby Fish and Adam Cole is taller than both of us which is 5'9''ish.

Kurt Angle is someone I always thought was 6 feet

Got a group pic with him in a TNA ring. He was my height which is 5 foot 10.

Wait...I'm 6'0", 222. Does that make me the Big Show of 'Dis Place?

Pfft! I'll still put up a $10 bounty for anybody who can slam me. That's 10 dollars, American currency.

This probably deserves a topic for itself, but news going around is that Paige is done due to injury as far as being a WWE Superstar is concerned. Unfortunate, especially at a young age.

wrote:WWE touted the signing of Rinku Singh, who is best known for being one of the winners of India’s “Million Dollar Arm” reality series (with a Disney movie of the same name being released in 2014) and spending time in the PIttsburgh Pirates organization. His career was plagued by injuries and he last pitched in 2016. Singh took part in WWE’s tryouts in Dubai last year.
I just thought this was interesting, just because I remember the hoopla coming out of the Pirates organization (they also signed the runner up). I was keeping track of their "progress", but at a certain point, I gave up. A second chance at fame based solely on birth place. If the injury bug derailed his baseball career, I don't see taking bumps being much better for him.

It depends. There are a lot of guys like Duggan that had football careers derailed by injury that made it through wrestling fine.

Duggan also came up in an era where you could get away with punch/kick/no bump matches. There's too much pressure these days to do more unless you're a Great Khali freak show who physically can't bump.

I might be looking too into the injuries, but that's just hilarious a guy gets two shots at fame only because he's from India.
