Default What's it mean if someone says you're built like a wrestler?

I've been doing mma for about 6 months now and I've been asked almost a thousand times if I've wrestled before because I was "built like a wrestler". No, I've never wrestled before, I'm 5'7" 153lbs and I'm not sure if its a compliment or if its a nice way to say I'm short

In many parts of the country it is an insult. It means you have a small brain and/or a small wang.

It usually means you're short and stocky. Built like someone you would see on a wrestling mat.

I'm sure you have wide shoulders and all. It has nothing to do with your height. When I was 5'2" (14 years old, I think) I was told that I was built like a wrestler because I had wide shoulders apparently? Well, not like Batista's (lol) but still, it means your build is athletic. And 5'7" isn't that short. Wrestlers, more than you know of, are that height or shorter than that.

Well, to answer this question, consider how wrestlers are built. Many wrestlers are either shorter than average such as Rey Mysterio, average height such as Big E Langston, taller than average such as Ryback and Triple H, or complete giants such as Big Show, Kane, and Undertaker. Often, despite their height, they are usually mighty muscular. However, some are out of shape like Samoa Joe. With that said, anybody that tells you you're built like a wrestler could be referring to any one of the body builds.
