AEW has gained a reputation of being the home of the smaller wrestlers, with the likes of PAC, Marko Stung and John Silver managing to make a huge impact on the young company.
However, don’t let that fool you. Some of the tallest AEW wrestlers tower over even the biggest giants in WWE, and are larger than life characters that pop out of your tv screen.
Keep reading to find out the tallest AEW wrestlers to ever wrestler for the company.
AEW Tallest Wrestlers
Brody King – 6’5″
One of the newest signings to AEW is also one of the tallest. Brody King stands at 6 foot 5 and cuts a menacing figure next to the already spooky Malakai Black. As a disciple of the House of Black, he has showed his supreme in-ring talent, and already won tag team gold in Ring of Honor.
Brody King has not been in AEW long and has not had time to showcase his in-ring skills to it’s fullest abilities. Once the House of Black really takes off, expect to see him in the conversation for the best “big man” wrestlers in the world.
Luchasaurus – 6’5″
At 6 foot 5, he is small for a Dinosaur but huge for an AEW wrestler. Being about 3 times the sized of Marko Stunt (one of the latest AEW releases), he is one of the tallest AEW wrestlers and quite a site to see if you catch him flipping around the ring.
After a great run in NJPW, AEW signed Lance Archer in early 2020. He immediately became a huge star as well as one of the tallest wrestlers in AEW, dominating 1, 2 or even 3 men at a time. With Jake Roberts by his side, the sky seemed the limit for the MurderHawk Monster.
Lance Archer made it to the final of the tournament to crown the first ever TNT Champion. He was defeated by Cody Rhodes in a great match at AEW Double or Nothing 2020, ending his undefeated streak but just how good the 6 foot 6 giant could be inside the ring.
Known as the Big Show in WWE, it is no shock that Paul Wight is one of the AEW’s tallest wrestlers. The biggest shock, however, is how he only comes in at number two on the list.
The seven-foot tall former WWE Champion towers over the bulk of the WWE roster, both in stature and with his WWE hall of fame career dating back 25 years. With a wealth of experience and knowledge of the business, Paul Wight is no doubt handing out tops to fellow giants like Lance Archer and Luchasaurus, as well as working as a commentator and occasional wrestler for AEW.
The tallest AEW wrestler of all time is former NBA star Shaquille O’Neil, best known by his nickname Shaq. The Basketball legend wrestled once for AEW so far in his career, giving him the honour of being the tallest wrestler in AEW history.
Standing at over seven feet tall, he towers over even the tallest AEW stars like Paul Wight and Lance Archer. In his debut match, Shaq teamed with Jade Cargill (in both wrestlers AEW debuts) to take on the team of Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. Velvet replaced Brandi Rhodes in the match as she fell pregnant before the match could take place.
Shaq won his only AEW match, despite crashing through two tables whilst brawling with Cody Rhodes. Jade Cargill pinned Red Velvet to win the match for their team. However, Shaq was carted off in an ambulance after the match but mysteriously disappeared, and has not been seen in AEW since.
The Tallest wrestler in AEW is now Indian Giant Satnam Singh. The 7 foot 3 giant was the first Indian drafted to the NBA and now resides in AEW alongside Jay Lethal and Sanjay Dutt.
