Shawn Michaels Height ~ How Tall?

"Being a good husband and father... that's the most important thing I'm going to do on this earth."

~ Shawn Michaels

One of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time,  Shawn Michaels was also one of the most good-looking ones in his time - his nickname "The Heartbreak kid" wasn't without a reason - it suited him well.

WWE always listed Mr. Michaels at 6'1" and he kind of looked that tall. Perhaps it was his body type which looked like that of a slim but tall and fast man. Moreover, he always looked taller than "squat" guys like Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, and Chris Benoit - all three were around 5'10" to 5'9". 

Though compared to John Cena, who is really around 6'1", Mr. Michaels looked somewhat shorter - same with Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H (who was 6'2" at his peak).

After comparing Mr. Michaels with a number of other pro wrestlers we think we have finally nailed down his height. Oh, he has lost some with age too - so there you go. His billed weight was 225 lb (102 kg).

The real height of Shawn Michaels is

5'10" or 178 cm

Peak height was 5'11.5"
