Ali is pretty tall for 205 Live, so I can see him being 182.

Re: There’s no way Ali is 182 lbs.

You know, through all the years Iv watched wrestling every now and then I wonder... Why do the announcers have to say what weight the competitors are lol I dont see a real reason for it

It's a holdover from wrestling trying to be actual real competition, where weighing in is extremely important and even a few pounds of difference can sway an entire fight.

In wrestling it's nonsense and completely and totally irrelevant. The majority of competitors are at minimum separated by ten pounds.

Re: There’s no way Ali is 182 lbs.

I think billed weights in wrestling is more of an exaggeration to aid suspension of disbelief and to get people to believe that it is true. Considering they are portraying characters or versions of themselves with the volume turned way up, it makes sense to have this. They've been doing this for a long time iirc. I see nothing wrong with it, and if people really cared about the actual weight then they may have to look it up further for that kind of information.

I dunno dude, it still does feel like at least of some of them are still embellished.

For example, Tozawa is billed at 5'7, 156lbs. First off, pretty sure he's a bit shorter than 5'7, making him around my height. I'm a bit big for my height, at 165lbs. I can't imagine Tozawa as skinny as he is, and at my height is less than 10lbs lighter than me.

Even if they weigh them, it’s not hard to fiddle with scales.

Billed heights and weights should be taken with a grain of salt.

Specifically for Ali, and the OP, I don’t know how tall he is, he doesn’t need to cut weight for a weigh in, I don’t see any reason why he couldn’t be the weight you suggested

Both step on scales one after the other about 2 minutes 35
