Fans are well-versed with the estranged bond shared between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel. However, there’s always an intriguing physical trait being chattered about a lot connecting the two actors. And that’s about how tall they’re in actual life, rather than what usually gets told on-screen. There are some authentic stats that can be used to clear the vagueness of the same topic.
According to a February 2023 report from HoodMWR, Vin Diesel, who ranked as the 8th highest paid-actor around the globe last year, stands at 5′ 11″. In general, the median height of a Hollywood actor stays somewhere around 5′ 10″ (around 177 m). So, from that perspective, Diesel actually has an edge of nearly 2 inches over his co-actors. However, one man who most often gets compared with the real world Dominic Torretto is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The former WWE wrestler has a height of 6’4″, which is a startling figure for sure. Just by going through these numbers, Johnson can easily look down on Diesel, as far as their respective heights go. However, as seen in multiple gatherings and World Premieres, both Fast and Furious actors always seemed at the same altitude levels. But, here’s a trick. Some Hollywood actors use shoe-lifts to make themselves look taller than their actual capacity.
Also, the Fast and Furious franchise made efforts to have Dwayne Johnson & Vin Diesel seem like height lookalikes. During a radio talk show, Vin revealed that he’s actually 6’1″, however, wears thick-heeled boots for the most part. In reality, neither of the aforementioned Hollywood icons is as colossal as they’re made to look. Going a bit into their personal relationship, they’ve claimed to mend fences with each other. However, both men still don’t see eye-to-eye.
Did Dwayne Johnson lie about his real height in WWE?
During his WWE days, Dwayne Johnson was billed as The Rock. Being one of the most prominent characters of all time, his fans were in awe of the Brahma Bull’s physique. Apart from a chiseled frame, viewers also got attracted to the son of Rocky Johnson due to his unbelievable height. As per the WWE announcers, the People’s Champ was called 6’7″.
However, it’s an inflated figure, as WWE often does with their superstars to make them seem like actual giants. WWE often inflates the weight and height figures of their superstars to make them seem actual giants, hence, the actual weight and height of wrestlers in the world of professional wrestling can be taken with a grain of salt. After years of misconceptions and made-up reports, Dwayne finally broke his silence on the matter through an Instagram post in 2020.

He said, “I’m approximately Six Foot Twelve, which is why every time people see me, they go “You’re a lot taller than I thought you would be”. I think because all Hollywood actors are generally little shorty shorts…”I’m Six Foot Four, despite what some reports have said that I was Six Five, but no. I’m Six Foot Four and as of this morning [24 March 2020], I weigh 277 pounds.”
At present, the 51-year-old has found himself in a newly resurfaced lawsuit. Former WWE employee and Impact Wrestling superstar Rhaka Khan have accused the Black Adam star of a conspiracy to kidnap her, and even her kids. The filed case worth $3 billion also dragged some shocking names like The Miz, her wife Maryse, and even the NBA legend Michael Jordan, just to name a few. Also, in the repercussions of the lawsuit, Disney has reportedly parted ways with Dwayne Johnson, snubbing him about future opportunities.
