Saw the main event between kane & rowan... kane had an inch advantage over him clearly

True Omid ... taker is 6'8"...



Omid says on 8/Dec/14


Kane is and always was taller than Taker by maybe an inch....

shuvayu says on 7/Dec/14


in that case sid would also be more than 6'9''...he was almost tall as taker..looked equal yet wwe goofs up by saying takers 7 & sid 6'9''



Shuvayu says on 5/Dec/14


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nQuETm4gYY check this... kane has a legit height advantage over the other 2 ases

LT says on 4/Dec/14


6'8 in his prime. Don't forget that wrestling boots add over an inch compared to regular foot ware. In current off camera interviews and pictures he tends to wear sandals, and look to be about a soft 6'7". Don't forget he's almost 50 years old.



Shuvayu says on 4/Dec/14


Also should you look at the videos of undertakers debut in Memphis he was billed at 6'8.5" ...in wcw 6'9" & skyscrapers & kane when wrestling as issac yankeem was clearly taller than taker by half an inch...though always felt from camera angle that sid was taller than taker...

Shuvayu says on 4/Dec/14


Even when you look at the feud kane had with wyatt family he is taller than rowan... Click Here



SID says on 30/Nov/14


Shuvayu Rowans isnt 6'8 he's more 6'6 or 6'7

shuvayu says on 30/Nov/14


rowans 6'8'' ...kanes an inch taller



Jacob says on 28/Nov/14


Kane is about 6 foot 9 because to big show he looks kind a small

slim says on 26/Nov/14


If he was raising his chin and was still closer to the camera..... then thats an advantage..



Rikashiku says on 26/Nov/14


Erick Rowan was raising his chin and was closer to the camera than Kane was. I didn't see a height advantage to Rowan.

NCL says on 24/Nov/14


Anyone see Survivor Series last night? No direct staredown between Kane and Erik Rowan, but Kane had him in a chokeslam position and did appear to be about an inch taller. He probably had a footwear advantage tho (Kane). I'll try to track down a photo or video



Paul says on 24/Nov/14


I didn't know the fully interview details thanks cool Daddy.

Daddy says on 24/Nov/14


Paul, I really like your list of heights a few comments down!!! But I see you quoted "It's My Yard", where the deadman says he's "a 6'8", 6'9" kid". But here's the thing you are forgetting. That video also quotes Glen Jacobs under his mask saying that Undertaker burned him as a child! It's a kayfabe production and should be treated as such. But wheather Kane or Undertaker was taller is debatable nontheless.



Paul says on 23/Nov/14


Forgot Tyler Mane at around 204cm, he should have been No 15.

Paul says on 22/Nov/14


Kane features here. Some height estimates.



1. Jorge González, whose actual height was roughly 7'6.5 (230cm) as the tallest commonly known wrestler. He was billed at up to 8' tall and there were reports he attained or just exceeded 7’7 (231-2cm) several years after leaving the WWF.



2. Ron Reis, at 7'2, (218cm) was also known as Ron Studd and the Yeti in WCW. The mummy outfit added some mind.



3. Dalip Singh, The Great Khali has been generally billed around 7'3 in the WWF. His actual height likely around 7'1 (216cm).



4. Paulo César da Silva, Giant Silva in Japan and Paulo Silva in the WWF, is generally also billed 7'3 and comes in around 7'.05 - 7'1 (215cm)



5. Paul Wight, Big Show, close to 7.1' (215cm) in WCW as the Giant in his 20s, is now around 6'11 (210-211 cm).



6. Andre the Giant was generally billed 7'4" and even 7'5 on occasion. He has one of the most widely disputed heights, being listed as low as 6'9.75 but was likely around 7’0’ (213cm) peak height.



7. Kevin Nash, Big Daddy Cool Diesel has generally been billed between 6’10 and 7'1. He was noted in a shoot 20 years ago by Shawn Michaels at 6’10.5(209.5cm) but likely around 206cm currently.



8. Robert Maillet, Kurrgan comes in at around 6’10 plus circa 209.5cm, but was also billed 7'0 tall in the WWF.



9. Nathan Jones has been billed as high as 7’1 and likely around 6'10 (208cm) in reality.



10. Stan Frazier, Uncle Elmer was billed anywhere from 6'10" to 7'2, in reality was likely around 6’9.5 (207cm). Maybe 6’9 even 206cm later on.



11. Giant Baba of Japanese wrestling fame was often billed at 6'10.5 but in reality around 6'9.25 (206.5cm).



12. Matt Morgan has been billed at up to 7'0 but in reality around 6'9" (206cm).



13. Giant Haystacks, Martin Ruane aka Luke McMasters who eventually became Loch Ness in WCW, was usually billed at as 6'11 but in reality nearer 6’9 206cm in the 70’s, 6’8.5-75cm in the 80’s (205cm) and during WCW in 1995-6 around 6’7.75 (202.5cm) or perhaps 6’8 (203cm).



14. The Undertaker has been billed in WCW as 6’9 (206cm) usually and occasionally 6’8 (203cm) with a usual WWF height bill of either 6’10 (208cm) or 6'10.5 (209.5cm). He stated himself as being 6'8 or 6’9 many years ago, so about 6'8.5" (204 - 205cm) was probable although these days maybe just 6’6.75 (200cm) or so.



15. Kane has been billed as 7’0. He is roughly a shade over 6'8 (204cm) peak height but probably 6’7.5 (202cm) these days.



16. Ernie Ladd, Big Cat often billed 6'9 (206cm) was probably around 6’8 (203cm).



17. Sid Eudy (Justice/Vicious) has generally been billed 6'8 - 6'11" in his career. Peak height roughly 6’7.75 (202.5cm) and later around 6’6.5 (199.5cm).

He was never 6´8", 6´7-6´7.5"



look at him next to 6´5" Jake Roberts and pause at 2:47 to see that YankemKane ha bigger than normal sole on his boots.



Jake´s in the same monstersboots he was facing Taker in 1992, Taker facing Yankem it´s clear Taker had footwear disadvantage and wider stance so it´s obvious they tryed to sell Jacobs height back then.



Vince wasn´t happy with Jacobs being "only" 6´7" so they made even bigger boots and gave Taker flats for WM14 to hype the munster Kane.



If I had to give the full 6´7.5" I would choose peak Taker instead of Kane



Reed says on 19/Nov/14


Why are you guys still debating about Kanes height and speculating with no supporting facts ? The man himself stated in an interview which has nothing to do with WWE that he is 6'8.

Search the video on youtube called "AIP 1122 Glenn Jacobs". In the video he states he is 6'8 I pretty sure the man himself knows his own height not you guys.

Reed says on 18/Nov/14


Glenn Jacobs recently stated in an interview he is 6ft8in. He used to wear lifts in the attitude era to increase 1-2 inches on his height although he was billed as 7 foot tall to give him a monster persona. Let's not forget WWE aren't accurate on heights.



DFens says on 18/Nov/14


Watch the first segment of RAW 11/17. Kane and Luke Harper are very similar in height -

Paul says on 17/Nov/14


(relates to LeonPs1981 post somewhere down the page).



Paul says on 17/Nov/14


I think most of us would agree on current height for Kane and UT in the 6'6 to 6'7 range. I think Kane is around 6'7 today. This link seems to be reasonably accurate. I think it slightly over states Stan Frazier and slightly understates GH, one or two other besides, although no listed heights (peak heights they are) I believe are out by a material degree.

6'7" at his absolute peak. Wore MASSIVE boots to appear taller than a PEAK Undertaker in the late 90's.



Danimal says on 17/Nov/14


Paul says on 10/Nov/14

Kane is now 6'7 1/2,having lost 3/4in, Undertaker about 6'6 1/2 having lost around 2in. They both need a pair of these....

Click Here



Undertaker was never 6'8.5". Was around 6'7" 15-20 years ago. Is around 6'6" today.

Icehole says on 11/Nov/14


You cannot get 5 inches from lifts and modified boots. I used a lift and thick sole to get maybe 3.25". They aren't stripper heels. They are made of a hard foam but do compress from weight.

Kane is a legit 6'8". No way in hell ANYONE ever wore 5" lifts. His big boots were MAX 2" thicker. Plain to see



The A-List says on 9/Nov/14


XTrack21 says on 8/Nov/14

Kane real height is 6'6. in wrestling gear he's 6'11 - he wear's 2inch boot's with 3inch lifts to make him look taller.









Yeah I agree with you that he is likely 6'6''. W/ Boots on he is 6'8'' at the most no taller. When you put him next to The Big Shoe there is 3'' difference or more to be honest.

Aaron says on 9/Nov/14


Does he hell wear 2 inch boots with 3 inch lifts. 5 inch heels running around a wrestling ring...get real



Martin says on 8/Nov/14

miko says on 20/Oct/14


Kane is still 6'7 or a hair over when he stands properly. In poor posture of course he'll look shorter, just like Taker.

SID says on 20/Oct/14


Vegas do you see 3 inches in that photo



Kane_5388 says on 19/Oct/14


Yup, that's about 3 inches in that picture where both are wearing flat dress shoes.

Vegas says on 16/Oct/14


Rikashiku says on 14/Oct/14

Where do you see 3" in that video?

___________



would imagine that is one example Click Here



Danimal says on 15/Oct/14


Aza says on 12/Oct/14

Believe Kane is 6'7 now if he stood as tall as possible. His peak height was 6'7.5.



His peak height was 6'7" and is slightly under that today.

James B says on 12/Oct/14


The 196cm guy has not officially been measured at that mark so who knows?



However if that guy truely is a full 6'5 then I'd say Kane looks 6'7.5 there.



HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 11/Oct/14


Click Here



Met this guy at a con and he looked his 196cm claim, Kane looks easy 6´7.5" there

Icehole73 says on 10/Oct/14


We all agree that he looks shorter than before. I think maybe a 6'8.25" peak height should be added. I say now 6'7 barefoot, 6'8.5" in current boots and 6'9.5 in his thickest healed boots.



That's just me. Oh yeah, anyone else get pissed that during the Hogan, Rock and KAne vs NWO match that there wasn't a Kane/Nash staredown. Why wouldn't you emphasize two guys that big going at it.



shane p says on 10/Oct/14


i dnt think so,common you [eole r sayin that kane and taker are 6"6 6"7 range,both of them hv lost jst a minimal or maybe no height.they r no still beteen 6"7.5 to 6"8 range

James B says on 10/Oct/14


Rob seems certain that orton is 6'4 but Vegas met him in person and thought he was more 6'3 1/2.



James B says on 10/Oct/14


I am sorry but Kane looks shorter than 6'7. I mean only 1 inch between him and kevin Nash?



Unimaginable.

Alex 6'0 says on 10/Oct/14


Kane I still think is 6'7. I don't think he lost height other than prob a fraction. In the late 90s up til 2000-2001 he wore pretty big boots.



sid says on 9/Oct/14


Vegas I see 3 inches with Kane and orton, that puts Randy 6'4, kane 6'7

James B says on 9/Oct/14


There does look a few inches between Kane and orton in Vega's video. Again Kane is not great shape so that could be why he looks shorter.



In my opinion Kane does not look as big as other wrestlers in the 6'6-6'7 range such as Sid eudy and undertaker.



James says on 9/Oct/14


He can even look 6'4.5 today

Carllll says on 8/Oct/14


Nothing under 6'6" for him. His all time peak MIGHT have been 6'7". He looks slightly taller than most 6'5"-6'6" celebrities I've seen.



miko says on 8/Oct/14


I do think Kane is still around the 6'7 mark like Undertaker still is today, but I'll say lately on RAW he has been looking shorter than he should do.



His footwear in the 90's must have been absolutely huge.

Vegas says on 8/Oct/14


here is kane and orton side by side in dress-shoes last month Click Here



Clay says on 7/Oct/14


The A-List says on 6/Oct/14

Clay, kane was a hair under 6'10''back in the day but he definitely was 6'9'' if not very close to it.



Im talking about what he reached in his boots. Big Show was absolutely about 7'1'' in his boots back in the late 90's, and Kane if he stood as high as he could was no more than 3 inches shorter. But he had ridiculous heels under his feet, clearly. I believe a 6'8'' peak and 6'7'' tops today.

James B says on 7/Oct/14


Personally I don't think he looks even 6'6 range these days. I my opinion because he is 'heavy' he gives the illusion of being in the 6'4-6'5 range or around 6'5.



Height181 says on 7/Oct/14


This guy is looking very close to Randy Ortons height these days. I'm not buying anything more than 6'6.5'' for Kane. He always looks around Ortons height now. I don't think he is even a proper 6'7''! Just not buying it..

sid says on 7/Oct/14


The a list, second picture with orton and kane theres more then 2 inches its looks like 3 inches



The A-List says on 6/Oct/14


Clay, kane was a hair under 6'10''back in the day but he definitely was 6'9'' if not very close to it.

Clay says on 5/Oct/14


Louis says on 26/Sep/14

I'm going for kane's peak height 6'9 look at this Click Here



This is one of the pics that showed how he reached 6'9 or even 6'10'' in his lifts back in the Attitude era. I remember thinking he was truly 6'10'' back then, Kane was a popular wrestler because he was just so huge and tall with great theme music, and a great look. People said why would he wear lifts in his wrestling boots when he was already tall, well - getting up to 6'10'' made him even more popular.



The A-List says on 5/Oct/14


Alex I know your big fan of kane just accept the fact that he is a strong 6'6'' today. He doesn't look 6'7'' or taller next to theses people:

Click Here

Click Here

I mean he could measure up to 6'7'' during Morning but afternoon and bed time he is 6'6''.

James B says on 5/Oct/14


I dunno alex Kane does not look 3 inches taller than orton.



Alex 6'0 says on 4/Oct/14


Kane's lost a slight margin of height but he doesn't wear those big boots he once did and posture isn't as good as it was back then. Id still give him 6'7 today but no more.

Alex 6'0 says on 4/Oct/14


Kane is more out of shape nowadays yea but he's not obese.



James B says on 4/Oct/14


Rob go to 1:03:45 in the YouTube video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eMTDnnp6Su0



There does not look much between Kane and Randy Orton in that part of the video from smackdown last night.



Maybe consider downgrading Kane's height to 6'5.5 and giving him a peak height of 6'6.5 I do wonder if Kane really was ever 6'7 1/2 in the first place after seeing him next to Orton recently? Did he wear huge lifts in the 90s to boost him to 6'9?

James B says on 4/Oct/14


Seriously on smackdown last night Kane looked like a 6ft5 guy when he walked down to the ring. I will put that down to him being really heavy and if he was lean he'd probably look considerably taller.



When he stepped into the ring with Orton on smackdown there didn't look over 2 inches between the 2 men.



slim says on 3/Oct/14


It was pretty obvious Clay, that as yankem, he wore regular flat ass "boots" also as fake diesel

The R says on 2/Oct/14


No way Kane is any taller than 6'6. On Raw a few nights ago he looked 2 inches max taller than Randy Orton and we all know that Randy Orton is no bigger than about 6'4. Idk what Kane was in his prime, but he's def 6'6 now.



James B says on 2/Oct/14


Kane looks a strong 6'5 without ring gear today but he's outa shape and obese in weight which makes him look shorter. A contrast from him looking 6'9 at times in the 90s.

James B says on 2/Oct/14


Looked 6'9 in some matches with big show



Clay says on 2/Oct/14


I would not be surprised if Kane was rocking some heavy duty boots even when he was Isaac Yankem as well. He just wanted to look as large as possible in that ring, period.

Icehole73 says on 30/Sep/14


In their youth Yankeem and Taker had a stare down. This was before the Kane boots mind you. He is a half inch taller, no question, no footwear advantage. Not sure today. Glenn Jacobs claim 6'8.25" and that puts Taker at 6'7.75 or so.



The A-List says on 28/Sep/14


TBH I think he would edge out height challenger 15 barefoot.

James B says on 27/Sep/14


Louis Kane wore lifts boosting him to 6ft9.



Kane 6'6'.75 today

Peak 6'7.75



Louis says on 26/Sep/14


Anyway 6'8 or not he's still a huge guy

Louis says on 26/Sep/14


I'm going for kane's peak height 6'9 look at this Click Here



vinny says on 24/Sep/14


I still like 6'6.5" for current Kane. Perhaps 6'7" or slightly more in his Fake Diesel and debut Kane days.

sid says on 22/Sep/14


aza ya he slouches to much, he used to stand straight back in his prime



Aza says on 22/Sep/14


Still think he is 6'7 if he stood as tall as possible.

lion says on 19/Sep/14


Kane in the late 90s to me looked 6'10 but with his monster boots in



James B says on 10/Sep/14


Undertaker is defo over 6'5. After his injury at mania this year he could be 6'6 range now though.

Clay says on 9/Sep/14


Undertaker at 6'5'' is just plain funny. It's because Lesnar is actually legitimetely 6'2 and change, not that Calloway is 6'5''.



James B says on 9/Sep/14


No more than 5 inches taller than seth rollins last night on raw and only 2 inches taller than 6'4.5 jack swagger in photos. Granted seth might have had slight footware advantage it all adds up to 6'6.5 barefoot for Kane today.

Joe S says on 9/Sep/14


Kane's 6'10 he used to be 7 foot but he's shrank



Guy B says on 9/Sep/14


Kane's height was a tricky one to figure out because he has worn different sets of boots throughout his career to adjust his height. In both his brief stint as Diesel and his later incarnation as Kane, he wore huge heels to increase his height to around 6'9" or 6'10". Having met both Undertaker and Kane in person and out of character, i can honestly say that they are both almost the exact same height, which would be around 6'7" but not taller than 6'8"

BorkLaser says on 8/Sep/14


Frankly, and nowadays, I don't see Kane being any taller than 6'6" at most: Click Here

As for Taker, Kane had just about an inch on him back in the day: Click Here but I'm not sure about the lifts, although, and judging from current superstars' listings, Taker didn't seem any taller than 6'5" when facing Brock. Looks like they both lost conisderable height. Could also be that since they're way taller, they lose more height over the day than the shorter superstars but I'm not sure.



James B says on 8/Sep/14


He's not honest about his current though claiming "6'8". Without ring gear doesn't look that size range these days.

miko says on 8/Sep/14


Eric Rowan is at least 6'7 having met him, he's huge, Kane looked similar range but its hard to tell.



BigZ says on 7/Sep/14


Hey rob! If you ever meet kane. You should just ask what his peak height was lol. I'm sure he wouldn't lie, based off how easy going he is in videos etc

[Editor Rob: kane and undertaker do the odd convention in america, maybe one day they might do a uk one.]


Clay says on 7/Sep/14


Height181 says on 7/Sep/14

I have no idea why such a tall guy as Kane had to wear lifts. No wonder he always moved like a robot in the ring and was so so slow.



What looks more monstrous 6'8 or a 6'10 illusion? And Erik Rowan at 6'6 is a good laugh. Not sure on him, but he looks closer to 6'8'' than 6''.



Height181 says on 7/Sep/14


I have no idea why such a tall guy as Kane had to wear lifts. No wonder he always moved like a robot in the ring and was so so slow.

Louis says on 6/Sep/14


I'd say 6'8-6'9 Peak but now he's like the same size as 6'6 Eric Rowan.



DFens says on 5/Sep/14


Rowan towered Kane this smackdown.

James B says on 2/Sep/14


Rob is height loss for Jacobs possible these days? At times next to Randy Orton he just dosent look 3.5 inches taller.

[Editor Rob: always more risk for wrestlers in early 40's who have been in the game a while to succumb to quicker loss than your average joe.]




Clay says on 1/Sep/14


lol 6'9-6'10 peak. He wore lifts back in those days. I do believe a peak of 6'8-6'8.5 easily though.

tall person says on 1/Sep/14


Also, in Kane's picture with Shaq, we assume a best case of 7'1" for Shaq, putting Kane at about 5 to 5.5 inches shorter in WRESTLING BOOTS. Shaq at a more realistic 7 foot flat making Kane about 6'8" in his boots, or 6'6-6'7 barefoot.



tall person says on 1/Sep/14


BigZ says on 1/Sep/14



----



Nothing extraordinary there. He looks 3 inches shorter, with due respect to camera angle and other variables, than Big Show. Big Show, at anywhere from 6'10"-7'0" doesn't match up to Kane, at MOST, being anything over 6'9". He's still a peak 6'7.5", or in best case scenario 6'8" (unlikely).

BigZ says on 1/Sep/14


I still stand by Glenn's peak being 6'9-6'10. Here, check this link! Click Here

What do you think of the height comparison between them?



sid says on 31/Aug/14


Arjun Kane slouches, thats why he appears shorter. Kane never stands up straight anymore like he used to

James B says on 31/Aug/14


He didn't look 6'8.5 compared to 6'4.5 Test in the attitude era



tall person says on 31/Aug/14


If you watch videos from his Fake Diesel days, you could get a great idea of his peak height, which spanned as much as a full inch over Undertakers. Peak for Taker 6'7", and peak for Kane/Fake Diesel 6'7"-6'7.5".

tall person says on 31/Aug/14


Looks 6'6" or 6'6.5" now. Maybe from 1997-2002 he was 6'8", but either his boots lost lifts or he just aged and lost some of his height.



Alex 6'0 says on 31/Aug/14


Id give Kane 6'7 over the last several years. Closer to 6'8 peak possible.

Louis says on 30/Aug/14


Kane is about 6'7.25 nowadays peak 6'8.5



Louis says on 30/Aug/14


Kane is about 6'7.25 nowadays peak 6'8.5

James B says on 30/Aug/14


Kane does not look 6'7.5 these days in my opinion,



lion says on 29/Aug/14


Kane is near Undertakers height so he must be 6'7 at least. Anyone notice how wrestling doesn't announce his bllled height anymore just his weight.

Arjun says on 29/Aug/14


On raw this week, Seth Rollins was almost as tall as him even though he's billed 6"1



dylan hulme says on 28/Aug/14


kane and vince vaughn are the same height so kane must be 6ft5

James B says on 21/Aug/14


Rob if Kane's still 6'7.5 then high chance he was 6'8 when he was younger?



James B says on 21/Aug/14


With 6'1.5 triple H kane does look 6'7.5 despite him not looking much over 6'5 at times. Strange in backstage segments he gives of a 6'6.5 vibe yet when he goes out to the ring (without great and in dress shoes) he looks 6'5.



If he's still 6'7 1/2 today in his late 40s then there's a good chance he peaked at 6'8.

Scott says on 20/Aug/14


@sid Kane is 6'6'.5'' but he could still pass for 6'8'' guy although he's not that tall anymore.



Kanooooo says on 20/Aug/14


Kane don't care about posture. He's old. Why would he. He makes bank. His character isn't menacing anymore. So he doesn't care lol

sid says on 19/Aug/14


Scott its hard to get proof of pictures, 6'7 to 6'8 is not much of a diff



sid says on 19/Aug/14


scott Glenn Jacobs said he was 6'8 in a interview

BorkLaser says on 19/Aug/14


He didn't look so tall recently next to Randy. Could be that his boots give me considerable lift but I still wouldn't put him at anything above 200 cm (6'7")



James B says on 18/Aug/14


Kane might have been very close to 6'8 at his peak

Scott says on 17/Aug/14


@sid show me some pictures to back up your evidence that Kane is indeed 6'8''



Alex 6'0 says on 17/Aug/14


Id give Kane 6'7 today still. Peak maybe a bit taller but was he ever 6'8 at his peak? Not sure

miko says on 17/Aug/14


Kane out of ring gear can look 6'6 at times these days but I think he's still 6'7.



Kane_5388 says on 16/Aug/14


And Kane is even slouching a little bit in that picture.

James B says on 16/Aug/14


But he really does not look 6'7.5 without ring gear.



slim says on 16/Aug/14


More than 5 inches AND he is not standing straight. This man is a legit 6 foot 8 like he claims. Geez people im 6 foot even and i can slouch to 5 foot 9. Get what im saying? Just look up as many photos as you can with kane near a door frame. Hes taller than 6 foot 7 door frames

Scott says on 16/Aug/14


No it isn't I think somebody needs to go see an eye doctor.



sid says on 15/Aug/14


scott thats more then 5 inches more like 7 or 8 inches

Alex 6'0 says on 15/Aug/14


That's more than 5 inches on Cena Id say.



James B says on 15/Aug/14


With vince Vaughn and John Cena Kane looks 6'5-6'6. On raw without ring gear he does not look much taller than how big Joe Mangelio looked when he appeared on WWE.



Possible Rob that Kane was in Ring gear with the NFL player?

Scott says on 15/Aug/14


Has five inches on Cena

How about Kane and Big Show in this segment?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQyaM9cOi8g

Daddy says on 10/Aug/14


@ James B I agree with your analysis



James B says on 8/Aug/14


Yeah at times he could look 6'9 compared to big show.



Funny you mention undertaker cause I think taker even today looks close to 6'7 (by that i mean at least 6'6) whereas as Kane can give a 6'6 or 6'5 impression at times. In reality though I think Kane might be slightly taller than taker. I think undertaker can look taller because he has kept in good shape. Kane in his prime on a good day could have been around 6'8 and no doubt 6'9 out of bed. Taker on the other hand I think in the 90s was in the 6'7.25-6'7.5 range since him and Sid at wrestlemania 1997 looked virtually around the same height. Today I think undertaker is in the 6'6.75-6'7 range and probably not over 200cm before bed.



Massive men.

miko says on 8/Aug/14


Kane has always looked a little over 6'7 in normal footwear. Like Undertaker he's still a very tall man, but with age his posture isn't what it was, but I don't think he's lost any noticeable height.



With huge boots, the mask/hair in the late 90's he could hold his own with Big Show in staredowns.



James B says on 8/Aug/14


I agree Luke that he looks 6'6 a lot these days but that might be partly due to the fact that he ain't in the best physical shape compared to his peak. 6'7.25 is most likely his barefoot height today.



Vegas pointed out that there is no more than 2 inches between Kane and jack swagger. That would technically make jack swagger a legit 6'5 which I ain't so sure about.



I will show you these pics and you can decide

Luke says on 6/Aug/14


Kane is 6'7'' or more likely 6'6'' barefoot. He may seem 6'8'' when you meet as a person. Rob, do you think Glenn Jacobs has inch on Daniel Cudmore.



Daddy says on 5/Aug/14


Luke says on 2/Aug/14

Click Here

Kane is dead on 6'7''



But Luke, at the time Kane (Mr. Jacobs to you, lol) was only 17. My dad was 5'8" or so at 17- now he's 6'3". He was a late bloomer, not gonna lie, but many males grow till 18-20. So Kane growing 0.5"-1.5" (however tall he is) after his 16th or 17th b-day isn't broscience.

Eric says on 5/Aug/14


I'm 5'10.5'' but I say I'm 5'11''. I've seen Kane 15 feet away he doesn't seem 6'8'' at all he looks more like 6'6.5 but I'd give 6'7'' at the most.



Alex 6'0 says on 5/Aug/14


James, yea he has Orton by a few inches. 3 inches or so. Ben was measured 6'4 7/8 but NFL heights are within a few hours of waking up so his low is prob more 6'4.75. Kane looks a strong 6'7 next to Ben. Like Rob says it looks about 2.5 inches.

James B says on 5/Aug/14


Kane looked a few inches taller than Orton last night.



Judging by how tall he looks next to 195cm Big Ben I'd say today kane is 6'7.25. Injuries have likely taken a fraction of height from him. Peak I think hewas 6'7.5 or maybe 6'7.75 on a good day.



Alex 6'0 says on 5/Aug/14


Rob, this has been posted several times but how much height do you see here between Ben and Kane? First look it can appear like 3 inches but looking closer it looks 2-2.5 inches.



Click Here

[Editor Rob: I think it's likely at least 2.25 and possibly near 2.5. I think those guys would have 10inch range heads at that height, maybe Kane even a bit more]


James B says on 4/Aug/14


In my opinion he can fluctuate between looking 6'5 or 6'7 these days. Doesn't pull of looking 6'8 or 6'9 anymore.



BorkLaser says on 3/Aug/14


Silly publications...Kane's first name is Glenn, not Glen.

Alex 6'0 says on 3/Aug/14


Not sure about Kane losing any height. He still looks 6'7-6'7.5 with Orton today. Remember Kane use to wear those bigger lifts back in the day where he looked even taller on TV.



Dan says on 3/Aug/14


Kane is 6'6'' but in his prime he was 6'7'' he doesn't even look taller than 6'5 guys like Penn Jillete and Vince Vaughan. People say Kane is taller than Penn but he is much closer to the camera angle.

Yes show us some proof Luke.

sid says on 1/Aug/14


Luke show us proof, that kane was listed as 6'7 in his basketball season



Luke says on 1/Aug/14


Kane is 6'6.5-7'' tops he was never 6'9'' only in ring gear. I'm not sure if your familiar with this but Kane was listed 6'7'' during his basketball season.

Superwwefan says on 31/Jul/14


He's obviously not 7 foot because when big show and great khali come out the announcer says standing at 7 feet tall



Louis says on 31/Jul/14


Kane was about 6'9 on his debut day and taker is about 6'7 nowdays and in his prime he was probably about 6'8.5.And I think kane today looks 6'7.5 max

Louis says on 31/Jul/14


Kane is about 6'9 and taker is about 6'7 nowdays and in his prime he was probably about 6'8.5



James B says on 31/Jul/14


The tallest he could ever look was 6'9 in ring gear.



On a side note I remember kevin Nash looked 6'10 or 6'11 when he faced undertaker at wrestlemania 1996

Aaron says on 31/Jul/14


He isn't 6'11. But he is close to it. 6'8 he is. He had said so himself and he has no reason to lie



James B says on 30/Jul/14


Lol at 6'11

Vince says on 29/Jul/14


Kane is not even close to a 6'11'' mark.



James B says on 29/Jul/14


Brock Lesner said that Kane was the strongest wrestler

James B says on 29/Jul/14


I'd say Kane looks no less than 6'8 at wrestlemania 1998 whereas undertaker looks 6'7

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ksXvZwAHt4Q



emt7338 says on 28/Jul/14


Kane is about 6'11".. I'm 6'3 and I've met the undertaker and he's every bit of 6'10". Made me feel short

Steve says on 28/Jul/14


WWE lies too much about wrestlers height and weight by looking at Kane the least I would say is 6'6.5-7'' as for the weight he's probably around 270-275 lbs. even guy like Brock Lesnar or Rusev is bigger then him.



Daddy says on 28/Jul/14


NCL says on 27/Jul/14



Daddy says on 24/Jul/14

@NCL I'm still of the mind that in the photos you posted, Kane's boots are maybe a quarter to a half inch bigger than Orton's. Simply because they are a larger size. But in the video Kane is looking down, and Orton up, so I'd say Kane is 6'7.5", and Orton 6'3.5".



Now a question for you. In this video, from 3:20 to 3:34 or so, Kane barley clears Erick Rowan, who is billed at 6'8" by WWE. Luke Harper, billed 6'5, looks about 6'4" next to Kane IMO, does that sound right? It looks to be like Kane was 1" taller than Rowan. How tall would you say Erick Rowan is? And Luke Harper? I'm guessing Harper 6'4" and Rowan 6'6.5"

Here's the video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=23tVe5PiZq0



Nice estimates again definitely could be - thanks for the link! That was such an awesome debut. I do agree Kane looks about 1" taller but it's hard to say b/c they're moving around so much. I think Rowan could be 6'7" barefoot. He looks about 2" taller than Harper, who I peg at 6'5". The lowest I could go for Rowan would be 6'6". But Kane definitely had footwear advantage.



I wish the WWE would just have Kane and Rowan have a match with a good ol' fashioned staredown



Agreed!! And considering Kane has hair and a mask over it, while Rowan is bald, while also wearing lesser footwear, 6'6.75" is my best guess for him. I wish he would step over the top rope in his entrance!! It would make him look like a monster even more. During matches, he could go through though- it's much quicker and easier, unless you have theme girth of Big Show, Viscera (RIP) and Giant Haystacks (RIP too), which Rowan doesn't.



And now, I believe I should upgrade my opinion of Luke Harper from 6'4" to 6'4.25" ish. I know I'm splitting hairs here, but here's my logic: Harper is leaner, has a lot of hair and better posture than Rowan, which could make them look closer in height, but as I've mentioned before, someone posted a photo of Harper and Barret standing side by side and Harper looked 0'0.25-5" shorter. And since I peg Barret at 6'4.75", Harper needed an upgrade. I can see Harper being 0'2.5" shorter than Rowan.

NCL says on 27/Jul/14


Daddy says on 21/Jul/14

@NCL IMO, Orton's boots are 1-1.5", while Kane's stay around 2". But Kane still looks easily 4" taller than Orton, adjusted for the boots



Gotcha definitely possible



James B says on 23/Jul/14

NCL u agree that Kane could look 6'9 at times back in 1998?



You mean barefoot or in gear? In gear, absolutely. I think he could have been as tall as 6'10" in his gear. But barefoot, I'd say Rob's listing at 6'7.5" at peak is pretty accurate. I'm open to him being maybe 6'7" or 6'7'.25" but the man himself in interviews has said "about 6'8"



(anyone know the interview I'm talking about? It was a political show someone posted it on here a while back)

@DFens

Enjoyed your Kane video - the other link you posted with him in the Wyatts, I didn't see Kane in it. I just the Wyatt part. At point is he in it?



Daddy says on 26/Jul/14


@DFens I watched it. I feel that was a bad camera angle. But nontheless, I'll give Rowan 6'6.75", maybe, just maybe 6'7". But I don't feel Rowan is as tall or taller than Kane, who's 6'7.5" ish

DFens says on 26/Jul/14

When "Corporate" Kane had a encounter with the Wyatts. Try to find the full ppv, Kane was clearly taller than Harper in dress shoes, what about Rowan?

6'7 barefoot I think, and 6'8-6'9 in wresting boots. Doesn't look anything taller to me. But a huge guy.



James B says on 24/Jul/14


6'7.25 today

Alex 6'0 says on 23/Jul/14


He looks 6'7-6'7.5 with Orton.



James B says on 23/Jul/14


NCL u agree that Kane could look 6'9 at times back in 1998?

NCL says on 23/Jul/14


A rare shot of Kane and Orton with the same camera angle in the middle of the ring. See 7:47-8:15



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUGngNPFZM4



I agree with James B - if Kane stood straight, there'd be about a 3" difference. At 8:05 Orton stands straight and Kane slouching has nearly 2" on him.



Daddy - I think you could be right, I think Orton's shoes tho may be closer to 1.5" or even 2". So assuming their footwear is nearly equal, Kane should have about 3" on him barefoot. If Orton's 6'4", that would out Kane at 6'7".



8:13 is another good shot



I think 6'7.5" is possible if he stands military straight



James B says on 22/Jul/14


I did think recently he's been looking 6'6 range but next to Orton last night he did look a strong 6'7.



Back in the attitude era looked 6'8 or 6'9 for sure.. He was in better shape back then which is why he looked minimum his current listing but these days he has put on a belly which is why he looks 6'6 at times.

Daddy says on 21/Jul/14


@NCL IMO, Orton's boots are 1-1.5", while Kane's stay around 2". But Kane still looks easily 4" taller than Orton, adjusted for the boots

@ Ali Baba, do you think Kane or Undertaker is taller? I'm inclined to say Kane, because he's not as slim as Undertaker, and slimness leaves the impression of greater height. I remember how shocked I was when a guy, who looked to be about 170lb, who I could have sworn was at LEAST 6'4" told me he was 6'2.5".



And if you could estimate their heights for me two, that'd be amazing



Alex 6'0 says on 14/Jul/14


Ali Baba, can you post the pic of you and Cena again? You're 6'6 even correct?

Ali Baba says on 14/Jul/14


Alex, in my opinion Cena is not over 6' even.



Bernardo says on 14/Jul/14


He has claimed 6'8 on several interviews, seems pretty accurate.

Alex 6'0 says on 10/Jul/14


Ali Baba, you said Cena looked 6'0 right? He looked 6'0 range in your pic.



Ali Baba says on 9/Jul/14


Bubba says on 5/Jul/14

Ali Baba, Have you ever met Glenn Jacobs in person. If so how tall did he appear?

—-----------------------------------------------



I have not met him, but have seen him from the same distance as I have the Undertaker (about 15 feet or a little less) and Kane looked a little taller. This was during the Corporate Kane story line and he was in his dress shoes. Taker was in ring gear, but it was a non televised house show in the build up for Wrestelmania 2013. I actually only live about 45 minutes from Taker but we don't exactly hang out in the same group of people.

Daddy says on 6/Jul/14


@ Dabs you are a good height. Many your height would ish to be taller, but ask any 6'1+" guy- airplane are agony for them!!!! Nothing wrong with being 5'10" :)

@ Dave, I agree, I'd put Rowan at 6'6.5" ish

knowledge guy says on 12/Dec/14
I stood next to Kane before. I am 6ft tall, he was only half an inch to one inch and a half taller than me max! And this was in the morning so I know we were both at peak height. I have pictures from that day also. Kane is 6'1.5-6'2 max.
