Kane is 6'7 barefoot but reaches 2m03 on shoes but he is nowhere near the Great Khali or the Big Show
BorkLaser says on 10/Apr/14
Seeing him with Triple H lately, I wouldn't say he's anything taller than 6'7" although he can look shorter than that sometimes
James B says on 2/Apr/14
Billy gunn is standing with slightly worse posture than Kane. At times billy gunn has looked 6'3 but is for sure 6'4.


Road Dogg is like what? 6'2?
Ed says on 1/Apr/14
He says, himself, he is around 6'8" in this interview.

Kane looks about 3 inches taller than billy gun here on the latest smackdown.

I thought jbl was 6'6 but either way I saw that vid of kane and jbl and kane looked a good 2-3 taller IMO
miko says on 20/Mar/14
He could be 6'8 out of bed at a push on a good day, but he never looks anywhere near that tall on TV anymore. He's been barely edging out 6'5 JBL on the JBL & Cole Show for starters.
Dewmoo says on 20/Mar/14
He's probably like 6"10
Icehole73 says on 20/Mar/14
In the video with Big show, Billy Gunn and Chuck, Kane looks only about 2 inches shorter than the 4 inches he has looked recently with Show. Great comparison. I'm sure Kane had his jacked up boots on but that is the Kane I miss. Back in the day Studd didn't look as tall compared to Andre. The Big men are the important to give the giants a run for their money and make it look plausible!
Slim says on 19/Mar/14
From the info I've gathered, I'd say kane is a solid 6'8-9. He claims 6'8 himself so I'd scratch out that 6'7.5 rob ;). Hell he was probably last measured way in the afternoon at 6'8 solid.
Icehole73 says on 19/Mar/14
Is there really a picture of Kane and Tyler Mane together? Love to see it.

I can't see him over 6'7 these days.

6'7" in 2014
6'8" peak
z123 says on 25/Feb/14
orton defiantly cares about his height.. why else has kane towered over him in the past..?
DFens says on 24/Feb/14
By watching elimination chamber I could see that Kane is taller than Harper and same height as Rowan and both Wyatts are huge
Sozzla93 says on 22/Feb/14
Kane - 6'6.5
Orton-6'3.5
Trips- 6'1.75
Rowan - Same as Kane
Andre - 1 inch taller than rowan
Bill says on 22/Feb/14
Always thought Kane was just a bit taller than Undertaker, about an inch. Am gonna say 6'7".
The Ben says on 22/Feb/14
I doubt Orton is really that bothered about his height. Its not part of his gimmick. He may have thick soles but there's no reason at all why he would have internal lifts. It doesn't look like he does at all. When wrestlers have lifts its generally pretty easy to see.
Slim says on 19/Feb/14
Glad someone finally brought up ortons footwear. I've noticed ortons thicker boots on the outside AND looks like he has boost inside!! I've seen several matches where he turns his ankle over. You can tell he has boost inside his boot. Same case with Matt morgan.
z123 says on 18/Feb/14
you guys have to realize, orton is obsessed with how tall he is. the man wears crazy thick soles. nonetheless he probably wears lifts inside his shoes too!
so in conclusion he would be as tall as kane. kane has been wearing dress shoes. kane could be 6'9' if he wanted just do what orton does. giant boots with lifts! lol
miko says on 16/Feb/14
I have to say he has been looking 6'6 on TV in the last year or so, I don't think he's that short but he's been barely edging out 6'5 guys like Barrett, JBL etc...
sid says on 15/Feb/14
KANE IS 6'8, HE DOESNT HAVE GOOD POSTURE HE SLOUCHES THATS WHY HE APPEARS SHORTER
Z123 says on 15/Feb/14
6'6' is a downgrade the man is a legit 6'8
Dan says on 15/Feb/14
6'8''
Jay says on 14/Feb/14
6'6 is BS and downgrading. He's not smaller then 6'7.
clement says on 8/Feb/14
KANE IS 6'6" TALL.....
clement says on 7/Feb/14
GLEN JACOBS AKA KANE AKA THE BIG RED MACHINE IS 6'6" TALL...
Aaron says on 3/Feb/14
Manuel your comment is completely wrong. Kane is billed as 7ft, he isn't actually 7ft. You don't really understand this site at all do you.
Manuel says on 1/Feb/14
kane is 7'0 cause the undertaker is 6'10 and he is taller than the undertaker
Don says on 30/Jan/14
How much does Kane weigh in real life? And what is his heaviest weight, I mean real weight not billed weight.
pab says on 28/Jan/14
My guess he's a good 6'6.5 flat 6'7 in shoes and 6'8-6'9 in boots
Slim says on 26/Jan/14
I'm 6ft even and I've seen kane slightly duck to walk under a doorway and I don't come close to ducking under doorways lol
pab says on 26/Jan/14
Kane is a big dude but one year I saw him next to my father he's 6ft and kane didn't look that tall
Slim says on 20/Jan/14
It's good you brought up nash there james, look back at when him and undertaker had a staredown backstage. Then look at taker and isaac yankem (kane) staredown.
James B says on 20/Jan/14
On last episode of smack down he looked 6'6 range when he came out and choke slammed cm punk.

Was not much taller than 6'4 billy gunn on that episode either but then gun had on wrestling boots.


Hard to believe heis only 1.5 inches shorter than Kevin Nash who gives of a much larger impression than Kane on TV. Nash himself could even be 6'8.5 these days.
Slim says on 19/Jan/14
I'd agree that's a solid 3" difference. Both wore big thicker boots so looks about right.
Ancient Aztec guy says on 18/Jan/14

Big show has at least 3 inches on kane, maybe more, in this segment.
beefcake says on 14/Jan/14
fair enuf red but remember someone refering to yankem as 6'11" possibly king jerry lawlor.
Red183 says on 11/Jan/14
beefcake says on 8/Jan/14
wasnt he billed 6'11" as dr yankeem id give him 6'8" at least taker defo 6'8" peak no question so mr kane6'8"-9".



I remember 6´9" for Yankeem´s billed height

James says on 7/Jan/14
No way is jbl 6'6.5
Slim says on 6/Jan/14
He looks a good 6'6" with randy in that one bc imagine if he straightened his back and was face to face with randy... That's at least a 2" difference in height.
James says on 1/Jan/14
These days 6'7 flat

As for jbl I think he's 6'4.5 or 6'4.75. Somewhere in that range like a weak 6'5 as you can see here with 6'4 randy ortin.

Aaron says on 27/Dec/13
He has to be 6'8, I would say he is half inch to an inch taller than taker. I really think you should upgrade him to 6'8 rob. He looks 6'8 and has said himself he is 6"8
Slim says on 26/Dec/13
That's right. Glenn recently said he's 6'8" and jbl is 6'6". Looks spot on in that vid.
Dfens says on 23/Dec/13
JBL and Cole show. Kane is a little bit taller than Bradshaw
Click Here
Slim says on 9/Dec/13
Agreed. Remember kane has always worn a little thicker boots. So a solid 6'8 bare feet. Other wrestlers wear the hidden lifts. Randy orton and Matt morgan both have hidden lifts in their boots. I've often wondered why kane didn't wear them inside his boots but from what I've seen of glenn jacobs, is that he doesn't really care lol
z123 says on 8/Dec/13
right, SO masked Kane would have been AT least 6'10. back in the day. now a solid 6'8
Slim says on 7/Dec/13
I've seen a lot of kane and show face to face. The 1:55 mark looks like a 2" difference. What I don't get is every time I see kane backstage near a door way, the door frame is slightly taller than him. Meaning it looks like he wouldn't have to duck to walk in... Those have to be 7ft+ door ways backstage.
z123 says on 6/Dec/13
Unmasked Kane standing almost the same height as bigshow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXm8U9H9oWk go to 1:55
josey wales says on 1/Dec/13
Theyre still the same height. Re Kane, He said once that they normally only get their promo material 15 mins or so before going on. Given the long and often difficult lines he had to deal with mostly during his time as World Champ a spell ago, id say that guy is very intelligent. Hell most actors we come accross have to re take and re take etc etc. Folks often dont credit these guys enough mainly because they dont like the product and dont care to watch the content.

Slim says on 27/Nov/13
Same height, give or take an inch or inch and a half
wiltonstilts says on 27/Nov/13
Kane and undertaker were the same height as some point. Whether it be closer to 7 or a bit below 7.
Slim says on 22/Nov/13
Yes I meant glenn jacobs lol sorry. I'm a huge fan as well! The pics of you and Tyler mane were greatly appreciated and accurate!
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 22/Nov/13
He says about 6'8 so its very possible he may be more 6'7 1/2 as Rob has him at. More of a weak 6'8 you could say
miko says on 22/Nov/13
He's somewhere between 6'7 and 6'8 so him claiming about 6'8 is pretty fair. He could have measured himself early in the morning.
Ali Baba says on 21/Nov/13
Rob, I think he meant Glenn Jacobs (Kane) ;)

And Slim, that would be awesome. Mainly because I'm a huge fan and secondly because it would be interesting for us here. He's a really intelligent guy and people are usually shocked when they talk to him to discover he's not a giant lunk head.
Slim says on 20/Nov/13
Would be interesting to see a pic of Ali baba and glenn together!
[Editor Rob: seeing as Glenn still insists to everybody that he's 5ft 8 he'd without a doubt come up to his chin.]
Slim says on 19/Nov/13
I think your right... Prime 6'10 maybe. I bet that's why he looked so close to big shows height in the 90s
z123 says on 19/Nov/13
Right im saying he could have stood around 6'10 in his prime not now
sid says on 19/Nov/13
DFENS I was gonna post that
Slim says on 18/Nov/13
Interesting... "About 6'8"? Doesn't sound like a promising 6'8. know what I mean? Cool interview though.
DFens says on 17/Nov/13
Glenn Jacobs says hes 6'8 at 4:50!

Slim says on 17/Nov/13
All I can remember was watching a video of them taking out the cartilage? I really don't much about the knee surgeries. I'm guessing his knees stay bent sometimes bc the lack of cartilage? I notice kanes knees have that bend too. I honestly think if kane straightened his legs, and stood straight up like he was trying to actually be taller, then he would gain an inch in height maybe..
Ali Baba says on 16/Nov/13
No. Orton is billed as 6'"5 and at times 6'4".
Ali Baba says on 14/Nov/13
And if his knees are bent that's where your dad lost all that height. Not from the surgery. Sounds like it might be more if an issue with arthritis.
Slim says on 14/Nov/13
I've seen much evidence seeming randy was 6'4-5". Is he not billed 6'7? A 6'3 guy isn't gonna be billed 6'7. Js
Ali Baba says on 14/Nov/13
What kind of surgery did your dad have, Slim? Like I said, unless Jacobs had knee replacement it won't make a difference. The other surgeries do not affect you any any way after you've heeled from them.
Slim says on 13/Nov/13
His knees are definitely bent more, than he use to stand. My dads knees are slightly bent all the time when standing up after those surgeries.
josey wales says on 13/Nov/13
Easily 3 inches taller than Orton. But then i wont give Orton anything over 6'3"
Therealseagal says on 12/Nov/13
Looked plenty taller than randy to me.
BigZ123 says on 12/Nov/13
Did you see kane last night? he towered over ortan imo
Ali Baba says on 12/Nov/13
Most knee surgeries don't cause the loss of any noticeable height. If its a torn ACL it will not cause any. If its a torn meniscus it will most likely not cause any. Usually they are able to see the tear in the meniscus. Sometime they will remove the meniscus. The meniscus is very thin and you should t even notice it. I just had the meniscus repaired in both knees at the end of August. It's not a big deal really. The only one surgery that might cause some height loss is a knee replacement. If it's done right though it shouldn't.
jackthewolf says on 12/Nov/13
he don't look much taller than 6'5 Randy Orton
Slim says on 11/Nov/13
I had no idea he had knee surgeries. If he really did, then he probably lost an inch or 2 bc my dad has knee probs. he use to be 6'2 flat, now like 6' maybe 6'1. Back to kane tho... Prime glenn jacobs was a legit 6'8-6'9 bare feet IMO
BigZ123 says on 10/Nov/13
Couldn't you have said, oh gee well kane could of stood 6'10-6'11, he's getting older. With all his knee surgeries I would assume that takes off height.
Matteo says on 9/Nov/13
I use to think he was a 7 footer but now 6"8
Slim says on 4/Nov/13
Kane really is a weird one when it comes to height. I think we all need to start from the undertaker vs yankem staredown. Glenn was a legit 1" taller. Same footwear.

Mlw says on 19/Oct/13
Met Kane yesterday and spent a lot of time with him in the past 24 hours. I'm true 6-4. He is 2.5 - 3 inches taller than me - both of us wearing similar street shoes.

Rikashiku says on 13/Oct/13
In Red183's pics, if that guy in the top pic is 6'5", then it really does show that Kane is in the 6'7" range and no taller or shorter.
Slim says on 12/Oct/13
There's a pic of kane posing in a doorframe. Those are 6'7-6'8" tall. He's clearly 2-3" taller.

Mr.Kane is 6'6" range...
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 14/Sep/13
Yea 6'7 is a very tall person but Kane could be closer to 6'8 perhaps. 6'7 and change as Rob has him
Lillo thomas says on 8/Sep/13
Kane is very tall . A legit 6-7 is very tall.
HonkyTonkMan says on 8/Sep/13
Most pro-wrestlers like Undertaker, Kane, Kevin Nash, Brock Lesnar, etc. played high school and/or college sports. Wouldn't it be easier to try and look up their old school stats to see what heights they were listed as? I've heard that some schools will exaggerate athletes heights slightly, but I'd still trust them over what the WWE or TNA lists a person as.
miko says on 7/Sep/13
Kane is a weird one when it comes to height.

He can on rare occasions look no more than 6'6, but then put him next to Big Show and he can pass for 6'8+, hell he even looked 6'9 next to Show in 1999 face to face.

I'd say he is very likely close to 6'8 out of bed and near a flat 6'7 late at night. I wouldn't rule out him having lost a little height, but nothing huge.

Do you reckon he has the same height over DB than Kristian Kairne has over Rob in the pic on this sight? Because thats a foot diference in height. Personally i dont see more than 10" diference between kane and DB.. The Kane/Vince Vaughn pic is at the worst a good reference as no matter how you argue angles there aint much in it me thinks.

Red183 who was 2 inch taller?
Red183 says on 29/Aug/13
He was about 2" taller than a fan who claimed 196cm and met a lot of wrestlers/ got pics with them.

I stood next to this 6´5"guy at a convention this year and he looked his claim.
Aaron says on 28/Aug/13
He was never billed at 6'7. He has been billed as 6'9 as Yankem. 6'10.5 and 7ft as Kane. He is 6'8 barefoot in my opinion. Not a chance he is 6'5. You cannot judge his height from one picture with Vince Vaughn. He looks a foot taller than 5'8 Bryan. He is also at most 4 inches shorter than Bigshow.
Ali Baba says on 8/Aug/13
He's not really a vegan anymore but they keep it in the story line as part of his character.
vegas says on 8/Aug/13
anonymous says on 6/Aug/13
Daniel Bryan claimed 5'8 on Raw and looks close to it
___________

he did and then vince came out and said he was really 5'5 not 5'8 which was obviously a joke though and playing into the storyline that vince doesn't want byan as champion, vince also said bryan had the build of a stick insert which is doubly funny considering bryans put on a serious amount of muscle-mass (on a vegan diet no less) since debuting in wwe Click Here
Ali Baba says on 7/Aug/13

Hi Vegas,
I think when guys are about your'e own height it gets easier to judge their heights and limbs.Like Ali Baba who are probably in a better possition to judge 6'6 ish people than i would. Im 5'7-5'8 depending how bad my beatenup back is the day. I think 5'7 to 5'8 is pretty accurate for Brian.
vegas says on 15/Jul/13
josey wales says on 14/Jul/13
i wouldnt dismiss 5'8" for brian

Clay says on 13/Jul/13
Daniel Bryan is more in the 5'8'' range.
___________

he didn't look over 5'8 flat in person and if you were to twist my arm i would say closer to 5'7 flat than 5'8
NNW says on 15/Jul/13
It will be interesting to see if Erick Rowan is as tall as Kane. He's been billed at 6'9" and from what I've seen I think he's a legit 6'7". Neither of them stand straight in the segment on the past Raw but it looks close.

NCL says on 12/Jul/13
vegas says on 11/Jul/13
NCL, i met windham rotunda (bray wyatt) in person a few years ago and he is roughly 6'1, both rowan and harper quite a taller than him on nxt. when harper was wrestling as brodie lee on the indies he was often listed as being 7ft, in an interview about a year ago he claimed 6'7 barefoot but now wwe bill him 6'5 on wwe.com

Really Luke Harper was billed 7'?? Even for wrestling that's a stretch for a 6'5" guy - I can understand the 6'7" billing. The WWE website has Erick Rowan at 6'8" I feel like he may be close to that, at least 6'6"

Did you ever meet Daniel Bryan by any chance? I've always been curious about his height. WWE.com has him at 5'10"
Wilson says on 12/Jul/13

DaMan says on 12/Jul/13
The problem with using the lawn umbrella is that it's base may not be on level ground and/or the base may not be fully secured against the pole allowing a slight angle. Using the peak of the roof, and taking into account the effect of perspective -- with the peak nearest Vaughn being the closest and will thus appear to be the highest point accounting for the perspective induced taper of roof height -- the truth is probably in between our corrections. My picture was rotated 3 degrees, but I can only rotate in full degree increments. The actual rotation of the original is more like 2.5 degrees in Vaughn's favor.
SID says on 12/Jul/13
Theres no way Kanes 6'6
Ali Baba says on 11/Jul/13
Deman, you're confused on how perspective works. You can't use any of the items you referenced to gauge camera angle correctnes. You have to use something that is known to be straight up and down. Anything other than that is subject to the same laws of camera angles as the subject of the picture, whicn in this case is people. If the camera is lined up perfectly with anything other than a straight vertical item it will appear crooked or angled to to distance. I had actually already done my own correction prior to asking the question and used the only vertical thing there is in the picture, and those are the poles for the temporary awning. Assuming that those were set up correctly, which is taking a bit of a risk, it appears that you overcorrected the picture by a hair. While not much, it is enough to make a difference in the height difference between Kane and Vaughn. Here's mine Click Here I think we're splitting hairs though.

As far as the comments that Vaughn is closer to the camera that doesn't seem to be correct to me. Vaughn's shoulder is behind Kane's shoulder. His more pronounced angle does nothing more than put his head even with Kane's.

Ali Baba says, "Just out of curiosity, what evidence do you see that indicates the photo is rotated in Vaughn's favor?"

Because the building/standalone roof, picnic table, chairs, etc. in the background shows evidence of being rotated 2-3 degrees in Vaughn's favor. The peak of that roof is the dead giveaway as they will always be level.

Using those references, this is much closer: Click Here

BillGates12 says, "Why does everyone always use the "camera angle/ footwear/ uneven floor level" card when allegedly huge werstlers measure up POORLY near other tall guys in proportion to their alleged height and NEVER the other way round?"

When a photo is posted, it is evaluated. As evidence it has to be. Where's your proof of photos "never" being to the wrestlers advantage? I know I have corrected numerous photos which were in the wrestlers favor, in fact (IIRC), the original Mamun/Kane photo was rotated in Kane's favor.
NCL says on 10/Jul/13
Dunno if anyone saw the Wyatt debut the other night but I've read 6'7" and 6'8" listings for Erik Rowan (bald guy) and 6'5" for Luke Harper Click Here (they enter at 2:48 but the whole segment is awesome)

Also read that Matt Morgan is no longer in TNA maybe he'll come back to WWE and see some good staredowns
BillGates12 says on 9/Jul/13
Wrestler heights are so exaggerated it's untrue. You could tell that when Rock looked shorter than 6'1 David Haye. Show looked no more than 3 inches taller than 6'6 Rodman. Kane is 6'6.5, taker is now around 6'5.5, Nash is like 6'8, Khali and Shaq are 7 flat...

Why does everyone always use the "camera angle/ footwear/ uneven floor level" card when allegedly huge werstlers measure up POORLY near other tall guys in proportion to their alleged height and NEVER the other way round? Just look at the Rock near that 6'6 basketballer Barkley, he looked tiny never mind near Shaq.
Icehole73 says on 8/Jul/13
If you watch the face off in the yankeem and taker match, yankeem is about a half inch taller. Remember he doesn't have his jacked up boots on. Check it out, he is slightly taller than taker. Funny, i watched the tagteam rumble from 1998 and even with jacked up boots, Kurgan looked a little taller. Yeah being a Kane fan that bummed me out too.
Ali Baba says on 8/Jul/13
Just out of curiosity, what evidence do you see that indicates the photo is rotated in Vaughn's favor?
miko says on 8/Jul/13
Kane at 6'6 would throw off every height. For one it would put Undertaker at 6'5.5 and Trips barely over 6'0.

He's most likely a flat 6'7.
DaMan says on 4/Jul/13
Photo is rotated in Vaughn's favor and we don't know footwear or if the ground is level (appears to be on the lawn).
KaneFan519 says on 4/Jul/13
@HellBoundPower

Kane and Undertaker are the same height Undertaker is not taller than Kane
KaneFan519 says on 3/Jul/13
@Bill

Hard to tell if that is his real height really since it is not not a full body shot, so Kane could either have step down on something to be at the same level as Vince or Vince could of step up on something to be at a same level as Kane. But if that is Kane's real height in the photo then he is around 6'5/6'6" then Big Show is around 6'8 because i heard Big Show's height is around 6'10 to 6'11 and Kane is a couple of inches shorter then him. But i don't know what is what unless someone took a photo of Kane and Vince at a different angle where you can see a little more of there lower body xD.
The Ben says on 3/Jul/13
I think the angle favours Vince, even considering that Kane doesn't look that big.
I thought Vince was 6'5 max. If the angle is against kane I'd say he looks as an even 7ft as billed. A solid 7 inch difference there. In all seriousness this shot does nothing for kane. He looks 6'6 and 260 lbs. I actually think he's 6'7 and 280-ish.

Heres Kane with Vince Vaughn over the weekend and Vaughn is supposed to be 6'5". Click Here

Bill, you just opened up a can of crazy with THAT one! LOL Now watch as guys come in with rediculous theories about how Vaughn must be SO much closer to the camera or in giant boots, or has hydrocephaly.

Kane looks around 6'6" there, which is around where I figure him to be.
HellBoundPower says on 3/Jul/13
I've been saying it for years, Undertaker is TALLER than Kane and Kane wears big boots with a small lift in them to look as tall or slightly taller than Taker. As for the Vince Vaughn pic, either Kane is down to 6'6", or Vaughn is taller than 6'5".
Aaron says on 3/Jul/13
I don't think the Vaughn pic is a good judgement of Kane as you cannot see footwear and Vaughn is closer to camera. There is also pictures of Vaughn with the rock and they look same height and the rock isn't as tall as Kane.

I believed that Kane is at least 1 inch taller than the undertaker who's currently listed on the same height. Here's a pict of both of them standing side by side.

Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 1/Jul/13
If we have Kane at 6'7.5 barefoot then in his lifts he had to be at least 6'10 back then. He looked only 2 inches shorter then Big Show in faceoffs back then and since he went into regular boots he is at least 4 inches less than Big Show as we've seen with them as a tag team etc
miko says on 28/Jun/13
I believe he was damn near 6'9.5 in his biggest boots back in the late 90's.

Add in the mask/hair and great posture and he could pass for a huge man, today he doesn't hold himself as well and his boots are normal.
Vinny says on 25/Jun/13
Met him in person in north carolina. I'm a strong 6'2 (or so I'd like to think). He's not as tall as you'd think he was looking back to his WWF debut as Kane. I can't really judge his height accurately, but there was an emphatic 5 inches of difference between me and him. He didn't dwarf me like I anticipated. Atleast 6'6", but nothing more than 6'7". Sorry for the people who think he's still some massive freak of nature. He's a very big guy, but he's not that big.

Orton is a weak 6´4", I saw him multiple times in suspicious footwear, so he cares about being tall.

Get a grip. If Kane is 6'3/4 that would make Bigshow about 6'5/6. 6'8 Kane barefoot. 6'9 in shoes and 6'10 in wrestling boots.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 16/Jun/13
Kane has 3-3.5 inches on Orton who Id say is 6'4
Mikey says on 15/Jun/13
Am sorry but I don't buy all this 6ft 4-5 for randy orton! he certainly doesn't look that big on TV. By no means am deluded but am usually right on describing people. I personally would describe randy orton at 6ft 1 inches tall. Glen Jacobs at 6 ft 3 or maybe 6ft 4 at a push. I know people might think this is a complete and utter stupid post but I think that's there real life barefoot heights!

RoelC That picture looked like kane had 4 inches, I dont see 1to2 inches

In the pictures I posted on 6/Jun/13 Kane only looked 1-2 inches taller than Orton. In the picture I posted on 11/Jun/13 it was ~3 inches. 4 inches is too much as the top of Orton's is clearly a bit above Kane's eyebrows.

RoelC says on 11/Jun/13
Kane looked 3 inches taller than Orton last night.
Click Here
I think that's closer to the truth than 1-2 inches. That would make Kane around 6'7". I don't think he had a footwear advantage over Orton either, as both are wearing wrestling boots with chunky soles.
Big Chia says on 10/Jun/13
I'm 6'8 310 pounds .. I have met with Kane in 2000, honestly when I stand next to Kane, he might 1.5 inch slightly taller than me. At that time he did not wear wrestling boot, just regular athletic shoes, so do I. I ask my wife see who is taller, and he says Kane is slightly taller than me, maybe 1 inch or more. So, I'm definitely sure that Kane is 6'9 barefoot (during that time), 6'10 / 6'10.5 on wrestling boots. Kane height nowadays got decreased due to age factor.

Sorry bad english, I'm from Taiwan.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 10/Jun/13
Kane will always be listed at 7'0 and said to be anywhere from 6'10-7'0 on TV from announcers. Its always been like that since he came to WWF in the late 90s
loco says on 9/Jun/13
if randy is 6'4" , it means kane is 6'6"-7", then why he is still listed as 7' ?
miko says on 8/Jun/13
Put Kane and Orton nose to nose and you'd see a solid 3 inches which is what you'd expect as Orton is 6'4 and Kane is 6'7.

This talk of Kane being under 6'7 has to stop it's just stupid. He's between 6'7 and 6'8, argue that.
Evan says on 8/Jun/13

sdn says on 7/Jun/13
who do you people just keep on thinking that camera advantage is just for Ortan ? why not for Kane ? If there is any advantage then Kane must get this advantage too and he must look more bigger, but he does not look even more than 2" on Ortan.

Because Kane looks too short there is the reason why I think the camera angle favours Orton more than Kane. Orton is around 6'4" and Kane doesn't look much more than 1-2 inches taller than him there.

Evan Kane has 4 inches on Randy Orton who is 6'4,that makes kane 6'8, besides kane slouches, he has bad posture, making him look shorter.

I'm guessing Evan is referring to last Monday Night's Raw, when Kane appeared in a backstage segment along with Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton. Like Evan I was surprised that Kane & Orton looked so close in height. Must be the camera angle I guess.

Ali Baba says on 9/May/13
So you're making your judgment off of his sitting height? Really?
The Ben says on 6/May/13
I've stood very close to Morgan, I met him at a meet and great but he was sitting. He looked over 6'8 to me. 6'9 maybe. I have a good friend who'' 6'7.5 barefoot and Morgan was over an inch taller.
Ali Baba says on 6/May/13
The weird thing about Corbin (Tom Pestcock) I'd that just looking at him alone in pics he doesn't tall at all until you see him with normal sized people. He just looks like an average baby faced kid when by himself.
vegas says on 4/May/13
@ jimmy, max 6'6 means he is more than likely 6'5 range..

anyway baron corbin debuts on wwe tv next week, he was measured 6'6.5 barefoot at the nfl combine in 2009 (wwe bill him 6'8) will be interesting to see how tall he looks on tv
Red 183 says on 3/May/13
JT says on 1/May/13
Morgan has to duck going under the door.

At 6´7.5", he would have to duck under a 6´8" door, even in flat footwear.
He often wears very big shoes or lifts in wrestlingboots.
Seeing that even Hogan ducks trough the door, it´s usual for most tall people, they duck trough doors they would never touch standing straight.
Ali Baba says on 2/May/13
JT, Hogan ducks when he comes into the room as well. I highly doubt that's a 6'8" door.
sdn says on 1/May/13
If you watch wrestlemania 28, Kane Vs Randy Orton, you can notice that Kane towers Orton by 2-3" at Max. Randy is listed as 6'-4", which is his built height, not the real. Jack Swagger and Drew Hankinson(Festus/Luke Gallows) are billed as 6'-7", at the time of investigation of undertaker's demise, they both were in the path of destruction of Kane. both of them were almost equal to Kane, or may be Kane towers them by 0.5" hardly. So I believe Kane to be 6'-5" to 6'-5.5" bare feet and 6'6.5" to 6'-7" in his current wrestle attire. and The Undertaker is almost the same. Kevin Nash, Big Show, Nathan Jones, Khali are really giants. Their heights lie between 6'-10" to 7'-1" respectively.
JT says on 1/May/13
Backstage videos are usually unreliable given the typical camera tilt. However, at the end of this video with Hogan, Morgan has to duck going under the door. Click Here I can't imaging any door in a modern U.S. sports arena being under 6'8".
miko says on 29/Apr/13
Morgan is damn close in height to Kevin Nash and was only around 2.5 inches shorter than Big Show in 2005.

Morgan is a legit 6'8.5.
jimmy says on 28/Apr/13
@Vegas Are u sure that Matt Morgan is 6'8"? Ali Baba that saw him said he is max 6'6".

miko, i didn't see him up close this time but i met him back in 2004 and he looked close to 6'2 in big nike shox that afternoon
miko says on 23/Apr/13
So would you say Cena was looking close to 6'1 Vegas? That's what I saw him at.
vegas says on 21/Apr/13
few observations from meeting some of the wwe stars the other day in person, unfortunately i was standing behind a velvet rope so didn't get to stand directly next to anybody but a few came within half a foot of where i was

tensai's (albert/a-train) head is massive in person, i met him 9 years ago on the street but it was dark, kane had a solid 4 inches on antonio cesaro, both were standing next to each other talking for a while, kane in sneakers, cesaro in dress-shoes, cena had an inch or two on big e langston even though cena was wearing shoes that couldn't have given him more than half an inch tops

daniel bryan is as expected, he looks around 5'7-8, brodus clays posture is horrible, he walks around all stooped, makes him look 6'2-6'3, the security man next to him looked taller than clay while clay was stooped but clay was clearly taller when he stood up straight for a split second, bryan and brodus were the two that came closest to me, cody rhodes looked around my height from best i could tell, the bella twins were wearing heels that had to give them at least 5-6 inches over barefoot, huge spikes and platforms at the front, i saw finlay and jamie noble stand side by side but i have met and talked with both of those in the past

@Mark, i thought kane was slightly taller in person than penn jillette

A normal head is usually 1/4 of a persons height. So Kanes about 10 inches. About ˝ a head taller than welling in those pics = 5 inches. Ergo 6´7˝".


That makes no sense.

The pic Jimmy posted has issues with Welling having a camera advantage, however he's also slouching. Kane, on the other hand is leaning. Kind of a bad picture to make a real good comparison.


The picture DeMan posted also has issues since its on the set and we all know how directors like to play tricks to make people look bigger or smaller. Cough - Hogan/Stallone - cough.

@vegas, you know that's a strawman, nobody said Kane is less than 6'5" ever.

Most disc compression happens within the first 4 hours you are awake. Afternoon most people are done compressing.

My estimate is that Kane is around 6’5”, afternoon AND evening.
jimmy says on 8/Apr/13
@Vegas I am pretty sure that Cudmore(with the same footwear of course) is the same height or a tad taller than Kevin Nash.And Meathedz is right about NFL measurements.You see Terell Owens who was measured 6'3" and looks at least 3 inches shorter than Jordan.
vegas says on 8/Apr/13
Meathedz i met kane at night, 2am one night in fact, this might come as a shock but raw goes out live and sometimes doesn't finish till well after 11pm at night most of them time so basically you are arguing that come the main event of raw or ppv kane is standing 6'4 something!!

not going through another debate over measured players heights with someone, if you want to believe ben is 6'3 range in the afternoon fine, just take into account he has been filmed at night looking nearly 6'5 and towering over folks on here listed 6ft, we had a long debate over this chaps measured height too and his measured height looks spot using rob/routh/morale we can estimate that rob would measure up similiar to godsey as he does next to daniel cudmore

and no jimmy, the other guy (ie ben) is not takers height, roethlisberger was on raw a few years ago and didn't look as tall standing next to hhh and hbk as taker has done over the years
