Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has a strong physique that can intimidate anyone. Besides being quite muscular, he also has a tall stature. According to several sources, Johnson is 6 feet 5 inches tall. However, his height is a subject of discussion among the fans.

As per the reports of Add Height, he uses a shoe lift, which is the reason for the many height claims. Being able to comfortably rise to several inches taller than his normal height with shoe lifts gives Johnson a considerable advantage over the competition as a wrestler and well-known personality.

What then is Johnson’s actual height?
