Over the last few years, SmackDown Live has built a reputation of being the brand which has the better in-ring action, as it has had great pro wrestlers who are technically proficient than RAW, which has the bigger, stronger men.

SmackDown's top wrestlers are smaller in size, bringing a different style of wrestling to what RAW has to offer. With AJ Styles dominating the blue brand's main title, the WWE Championship, for a long time, his impressive array of moves and finishes show that size does not actually matter in the wrestling ring.
Here, we take a look at 5 of the shortest current SmackDown Live Superstars (billed height). (This list does not include 205 Live Superstars)
#5 AJ Styles - 5'11"
The longest reigning champion in SmackDown history, AJ Styles is one of the most athletic and entertaining pro wrestlers in the business, let alone the WWE.
This Phenomenal One took to the bright lights of WWE television with ease and has wowed and entertained the WWE Universe around the world.
At 5'11", Styles is a lot shorter than the big guns in WWE like Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, or Braun Strowman, which is an indication of how loved he is by the WWE Universal and WWE's creative team.
Styles has held the WWE Championship belt twice in his spell with the WWE. He's much-loved by the WWE Universe and is often deemed as the 'model champion', a champ who defends his title at every PPV and shows up week in, week out on SmackDown Live, which is quite the contrast to what has happened on RAW and the Universal title.
The WWE champion, at 41 years of age, is showing no signs of slowing down and it looks like he can go on for a few years.
Other stars like The New Day's Big E and Xavier Woods, and former NXT Tag Team champion Eric Young are 5'11" as well.
