• Omos Reveals What His Height Was At The Age Of 11
Standing at 7-foot-3, Omos is the tallest wrestler in WWE today.
During an interview on the Out Of Character podcast, Omos revealed what his height was when he was a kid.
Below is what he said:
“So, from what I remember, by the time I was 11, I was 6, 6’1″, and by the time I was 13, I was like 6’3”.
And between 13 and 15, I had a huge growth spurt, and by the time I was 15, I was 6’11”. I started playing basketball when I was 13. Yes, I started playing basketball when I was 13.
So I was 6’3″, and within a span of two years, I kept on growing. It was crazy.
I realized me walking around, ever since I was a kid because I think at around 11, I was about 6’1″ and people were kind of intimidated by me. So, I always had to not be overly aggressive because I knew people would fear me.
Not to say that I don’t have that side, it’s there, but I had to learn at an early age that there was a right time and a right place to bring that out.”
