A.J. Styles Height ~ How Tall is He Really?

"You're only as old as you feel, and I feel pretty young. I've got one gear, and till it gets reversed, I'm going all out."

-- AJ Styles

American professional wrestler with long flowing beautiful hair - AJ Styles is not the biggest guy who has ever competed in WWE... Er, but he is certainly among the smallest. He was billed by WWE (as if height could be built like a building) as being almost six feet (WWE is certainly generous where imaginary height is concerned) but in reality, he is closer to five and a half feet. 

Then there is a rumor that he wears lift shoes in order to boost his height - and for all we know it might be true - it is the world of pro wrestling after all - everything must be larger than life. After comparing him to some other pro wrestlers, we think we have nailed his height down to a pretty number.

The real height of A.J. Styles is 

5'8" or 173 cm
