If Kevin Owens was 4 to 5 inches taller would he be viewed the same way?

Pretty much I always hear a lot of people joking about KO and saying that he looks like a fan that jumped outta the audience or looks like a Game Stop employee lol I admit thinking of those scenarios are funny as hell to me but it also brings me to a certain question. Do you think if KO had more height to him that he would actually be seen more as a more legitimate threat or have more of a star power feel? I ask this because there were heavy overweight guys like Vader who was heavy as hell but his height helped balance things out a bit to make him seem dangerous and intimidating somewhat. KO isn't as overweight as Vader but you get the point, I personally don't have a problem with KO but do you think he would be viewed differently under this circumstance?

The reason people think Owens looks like the fans is probably because they look like Owens tbh.

Nothing would be different because he'd still have great mic skills and a ton of charisma, so he'd be buried regardless.

Vader is just a big guy in general. Huge Arms and legs, his chest was huge, pretty tall and he looked intimdiating. KO really just got a fat stomach. His arms and legs arent that huge and he just is small. He doesnt look intimidating. Height would help him but I dont know if he would be as intimidating as Vader.

A guy who would benefit from some heigh would be Bray Wyatt. He isnt neccessarily fat, he is husky and has a great character. Height would have helped him (unless he still got buried)

Exactly man. Vader actually looks like a guy who has a huge bone structure, while Fat Owens is just a guy that has regular bone structure who just happens to be fat.

Guys like Mark Henry and Vader are big guys with big thick bones. But Fat Owens is just... fat

He’d look a little more legit.. something like a giant grizzly. The problem with WWE and height is that the average wrestler is much shorter than the old days so when someone with decent size (like the 6’4 Orton or 6’5 McIntyre) is around the new stars look really small. That’s why I prefer smaller promotions because for the most part guys are around the same size with 2-3 bigger guys. While there isnt as many big guys as the old days, theres still enough big guys to make normal sized guys like Owens look silly by comparison

I have noticed he has slimmed down since his return.

It's not the height that affects him, it's the weight. If he was leaner he'd probably be looked on more favorably.

That being said, I don't think WWE has a negative opinion on Kevin Owens either. He's done well for himself so far, and the current storyline he's involved in could lead to better things for Kevin Owens.
