Big E Height

"I've been inspired by some new people, I can say, from different companies and from just different walks of life, who've said so many beautiful and kind things to me. The very least I can do, is to do the same for others. Kindness begets more kindness. I want to see more of that."

Ettore Ewen aka Big E is a really big guy. He is just not that tall, but god... look at the size of the man, he is built like a human tank. Big E surely has one of the most impressive physiques in the history of WWE -- where almost everyone has an impressive physique.

Like we said Big E is not that tall. But due to his impressive muscularity, he looks even shorter. WWE lists Big E at 5-feet-11 inches (weighing an impressive 285 lb -- 129 kg). Hmm, he sure looks like he belongs somewhere around there -- but perhaps on the southern side.

The height detective in us couldn't stop ourselves. He looked carefully at Big E and compared his height to that of people like Kofi Kingston (5'11"), John Cena (6'½"), Mark Henry (6'2" in his prime), and some others, and we have to say that Big E looks a bit shorter than his listed height.

Now WWE inflates the stats of its wrestlers, in order to make them bigger and thus more intimidating. Though fortunately, not as much now as it used to do before 2000. Back then WWE used to regularly add a couple (even four in some cases) inches to its wrestlers' height. Like a 6-feet-3 inches tall The Rock's height was billed at 6-feet-5 inches, and a 5-feet-10 inches tall Kurt Angle was ludicrously launched to 6-feet-2 inches.

Anyway, from what we have seen of Big E, we think he looks close to 5-feet-10 inches more than any other number.

The real height of Big E is

5'10" or 178 cm

"I've taken a lot of pride in that, and not feeling any pressure to yield or to bend to what someone else's imagination of who I should be is. I'm grateful for that, and I still want to continue to do that. It can sound cliche, 'be true to yourself,' but that does mean something."
