Also I wouldn't call Benoit or Eddie small in muscular stature, those guys were roided up. Therefore I took it to mean height. Paul Orndorff also said that guys like Savage and Flair hurt the business because they were small.
Alright then I'll rephrase. Other than you, nobody's talking purely about height in this thread. It's about the whole package, not about being a tall, skinny beanpole with no body mass or charisma. No one's going to give a shit about someone like that.
Again, Ryback is 6'2". Goldberg is 6'2". Batista is 6'31/2". They're considered "big" because of their muscles. Height isn't the only, or even main factor when people are discussing whether size matters or not.
A guy who's 6'2" and extremely swoll like Ryback will be considered a hell of a lot "bigger" than someone who's 6'5" and has a build like Spike Dudely.
