Billed weights are the most worked thing in wrestling. Somewhere Vince McMahon decided that 245 pounds was a nice number, and wrestlers like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Rob Van Dam were always billed at 235-245, when they were probably struggling to hit the scales at 200. Even Rey Misterio was being announced at over 200 pounds. Even at his roided worst, he can't have been much more than 160, probably not even that.
