One size doesn’t fit all. Since 1963, the WWE Championship has been held by fifty different men who come in all different shapes and sizes. You have champions from Rey Mysterio to Andre the Giant and almost all points in between. That gives you a very wide range of looks to choose from and, as you might expect, WWE is willing to take a look back at it (as is someone else), just as they will almost anything else.
I love stuff like this.
WWE has released a video breaking down the history of WWE Champions over the title’s history and seeing what their average size is. The idea is to find out who is right in the middle and also includes a look at how the sizes have changed over the course of the decades. The video also has data on a few trends from the last fifty plus years of the title’s history and who is the closest to the average height and weight.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that I could watch all day and I love it when WWE puts something like this together. They have so many resources at their disposal and this sort of video looks like something not many others would actually produce. The average size isn’t the most surprising thing in the world, especially the weight considering the amount of super heavyweights WWE has had as champion.
