Re: Can a 5'9" wrestler make it?
I think perhaps if you want to be a wrestler at your size one of the main things you could do is appreciate the wrestler of your size who have made it so people of your size can, especially somebody like Jamie Noble (who I would suggest you broaden horizons and seek non-WWE work, ROH & WCW especially,) We all know that the business is about respect, being disrespectful like that in real life would have you thrown out no matter who you were if you were only learning.
Guys your size can and have made it, plenty of them. You need to put in work as much as the next guy, it's not so much land of the 6"5" minimum guys anymore, so you're lucky it's 2012 and not 1982. A few wrestlers increase their heights by using lifts in their boots.
