CM Punk's Real Height

"I believe you only have one chance on this earth, and I'm just trying to live my life and do what makes me happy."

~ CM Punk

Famous pro-wrestler CM Punk is known for many things -- his height is certainly one of them -- or lack of thereof. That doesn't mean he is short -- it simply means that there used to be a time when the elite pro-wrestlers were supposed to be big, brawny guys -- CM Punk wasn't one of them, but he was one of them who helped to change that.

You see CM Punk isn't that big or tall. He can be said to be slightly above average height but that's about it.

WWE "billed" CM Punk's height at 6-feet-2 inches, which is certainly not close to his real height (as was the case with Kurt Angle -- except in his case, the difference between the real and "billed" height was even more extreme -- from 5'10" to 6'2"). You may be wondering what is "billed" height anyway -- well it is a height that a pro-wrestler is supposed to be, (with elegant footwear and whatnot) -- but actually isn't.

After carefully taking a look at Mr. Punk and comparing his height to a number of other pro-wrestlers, like John Cena (6'½"), Triple H (6'2" in his prime), and Brock Lesnar (6'2"), we think that Mr. Punk looks about an inch shorter than someone like John Cena who is slightly above the six feet mark.

This is enough to make us doubt that Mr. Punk will touch the six feet mark on a stadiometer -- let alone the illustrious 6'2" mark.

The real height of CM Punk is

5'11½" or 181.5 cm
