Re: Analyze This: Size Does Matter?
No. And it really never has done. Everyone knows they add a few inches to their real height in the billed height, but guys around 5 11 have usually been champion. It doesn't matter how tall someone is, as long as they draw money. I remember Dusty saying a booker once told him, it doesn't matter what colour they are, to me they are all green.
Gorgeous George, Lou Thesz, Buddy Rogers, Argentina Rocca, Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Randy Savage, Bob Backlund, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels. None of these guys were that tall, in reality most of them are around 5 10, 5 11 or 6 foot. Not sure where this thinking has come from, that you have to be massive to be a top star, because history shows, that isn't the case.
