WWE NXT Superstar Heights (from 152cm to 203cm)

Modified 23 Oct 2020, 09:44 IST

WWE has been the home to several world-class athletes. Over the years, we have seen giants like The Big Show dominate their opponents inside the squared circle. However, we have also witnessed Superstars like Rey Mysterio defying the odds to create history. Hence, height is not considered to be the measure of one's success in WWE.

Height was considered to be a major factor in the 80s, but its relevance has decreased to a certain degree in modern day wrestling.

Considered as WWE's third brand, NXT also consists of an immensely talented roster. The Wednesday night show has been appreciated from time to time for pushing the right Superstars, irrespective of their physical stature.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at the heights of all the Superstars that are part of NXT. The following list comprises of all the NXT Superstars, who are listed as active competitors on WWE's website. The heights of all the Superstars have been divided into three categories.

#3 NXT Superstar Heights (152-170 cm)

This category features most of the female Superstars on the NXT roster, along with a few male competitors.

Drake Maverick is the shortest male Superstar in WWE NXT. He is often mocked for his physique by his opponents. However, this has not stopped Maverick from having an impressive career in NXT. He had a dream run in this year's Interim Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. Maverick defeated the likes of Tony Nese, Jake Atlas, and Kushida on his way to the final of the tournament.

Io Shirai is currently the shortest female champion in WWE. She is even shorter than her Japanese compatriot and RAW Women's Champion, Asuka. Despite this, Shirai has managed to establish herself as a top-tier female Superstar in NXT.


The Genius of The Sky proved her worth once again this year by beating Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a Triple Threat Match at TakeOver: In Your House to capture the NXT Women's Championship.

Now, it's time to check out the first height bracket of our list. The shortest Superstar in this bracket is Kacy Catanzaro.

  • Kacy Catanzaro- 152 cm

Raquel Gonzalez is the tallest female Superstar in NXT with a height of about 183 cms. Gonzalez is currently feuding with Rhea Ripley, who surprisingly is the shortest Superstar in this list.

The current NXT Champion, Finn Balor, is also a part of this list. Throughout his WWE career, The Prince has gone into matches with a size disadvantage.

The final category consists of all the Superstars whose heights lie in the 186-203 cm bracket. The tallest Superstars in NXT including the likes of Dexter Lumis, Velveteen Dream and Timothy Thatcher are part of this category.

As the godfather of NXT, it won't be fair if Triple H does not get mentioned along with the black and gold brand's roster. Unsurprisingly, The Game holds a high position in this list.

One of the most notable Superstars in this category is Damian Priest, who currently holds the NXT North American Championship. With a height of 196cm, Priest is one of the biggest guys on the roster.

The tallest Superstar in this list is Saurav Gurjar, who is part of the dominant tag team, Indus Sher. Saurav has been absent from the NXT programming for quite a while. We could see Indus Sher returning to the black and gold brand soon.
