How tall is Andre The Giant

Andre The Giant's Height

7ft 0in (213 cm)

Andre Rene Roussimoff was a French Wrestler and Actor from The Princess Bride. His official site gives him 7ft 4, also shows his 'measured' height from wrestlemania 3 (1987) as a whopping 7ft 5. He suffered from acromelagy and was supposedly 6ft 7 age 17. His spine took a lot of damage over his career.

….Giant Gonzalaz noggin had to be somewhere in 11 inch range (not quite 12), he didn't have a big head overall compared to his body. The first pic of his face next to lady which might be 8 inch range typically for a women show's it wasn't near a foot. His head was definitely smaller than Andre, Big Show and Khali

The 50% percentile head length for a woman is around 8.6” Click Here Pam Anderson is above average height for a female so there’s no reason to believe her head length is anything less than the 50th percentile.
Click Here Gonzalez was well-proportioned so the size of his head did not stand out even though it was probably every bit as large as Andre’s or Big Show’s and larger than khali’s.

Jorge Gonzalez’s noggin had to be close to 12”. It just did not look that large since he was better proportioned than Andre or Big Show and much taller than them.

Gonzalez apparently tested negative for a pituitary tumor or excessive HGH when drafted by the Atlanta Hawks but was ultimately diagnosed with the tumor later in life.

You are right, he's face and chin has got the classic Acromegalic features,he's chin has got lots of over growth,so much so it bends rownd,all this 13'' rubbish needs to stop Andre's face was 11.75-12''

Rob, do you believe Andre's head was a little near 13(like 12.75''-13'') as his death was coming closer, his chin certainly looked much elongated compared to Show's and Khali's

I came across a match of Hogan and Big Boss Man from 1995 and I found it strange that Boss Man looked the same height as Hogan:
Click Here

Pause at 8:53 for the perfect moment to judge their heights. In WWF Hogan looked at least an inch taller than Boss Man. I've always pegged Boss Man as 6'4" or a tad above. Hogan still looked like a solid 6'5" later in that same video when standing next to 6'3" Lex Luger. Luger was wearing cowboy boots and Hogan was still a 2"-2.5" taller.
___________________________________________________________________________--

Lugar wasn't the full 6'3", probably closer to 6'2 1/4" to 6'2 1/2" as I was taller than him. I do think that Lugar wore lifts at various points in his career though, as in a video I saw of him in the WWF he looked taller than Dibiase, but in person Dibiase was the taller of the two.

Dicksock, I have not seen any evidence showing Frazier was ever 6’9” or even over 6’8” The high camera angle is why Frazier looks that much taller than Hillbilly Jim in your pic. That’s the same reason why Frazier here looks significantly taller than Andre Click Here Frazier does not even look 3 inches taller than Hillbilly Jim in the top screen cap and the camera angle favors him a bit. 6'8" is the most I'd ever give him and probably 2 inches shorter than Nash.

________

I didn't see 2" between Nash and 6'8" Tyler Mane. In fact, most of the time I didn't see anything between them. I'm still sticking with a 6'8" range Frazier. He may have been 6'8" on the nose, but I think he may have been a little more. He's a guy I could see losing quite a bit of height throughout the day because of his extreme girth.

Cornette has referred to Frazier as 6’10” and 7’0” and Jon Harris (Silo Sam) as 7’8” so you have to consider anything he says with some skepticism, especially in shoot interviews where they still exaggerate or lie to make the interview more interesting.

Here is a photo of Elmer with Jesse Ventura. You can't see their footwear but Ventura is probably wearing his cowboy boots. Ventura would probably be 6'4"- 6'4.5" in his cowboy boots. To me, Elmer appears to be at least 6'8" and possibly close to 6'9".

Dicksock, Frazier would occasionally wrestle and do promos in cowboy boots so we don’t know what his footwear was with Andy Kaufman. Nash was noticeably taller next to Lawler than Frazier ever was so 6’9” or close to it is out of the question for Frazier. Click Here

_______________

I disagree. I can promise you he was at least in the 6'8" range. Jim Cornette is around 6' tall himself. I doubt he would be that off on a guy he worked with closely. I've never seen him look under 6'8". Look at this shot of him and 6'5" Hillbilly Jim: Click Here

I can see around 4" between them. You also don't what kind of footwear Nash had in WWF. He looked taller there than he did in WCW. Lawler was around 5'10-5'11" in his prime and Frazier had a good 10" on him. I bet Nash and Elmer would be about the same height. He could have easily worn lifts/enhanced footwear in the WWF. I will never buy anything under 6'11" for a prime Andre. He was in the 6'11" range at his tallest and probably down in the 6'10" range towards the end. Elmer may have been 6'8", but I will never buy anything below that for him. Andre did seem significantly taller at his wedding in 1985. Either way, Elmer was 6'8-6'9" and Andre was 6'11" at his tallest. I guarantee it.

That would only hold true if the camera man were standing perpendicular to the light fixture, ceiling beam, etc., which he’s not.
Going by the vertical edge of the cinder blocks between Andre and Frazier, there does not look to be any camera tilt. Click Here Frazier’s definitely closer to the camera but it looks like he’s back on his heels and leaning to his right side. No more than a 2 inch difference if both were equidistant from the camera and standing erect.


--------------------------------------------

I will have to respectively disagree with you and I'll explain why down bellow.

Click here first Click Here and then I will explain further down bellow.

In my opinion, in your edited photo, what you are using as the vertical grout line between the cinder blocks or cinder block edges is not the actual vertical grout line or edges of the cinder blocks. Actually, you cannot really see any of the vertical grout lines in that photo. Although, you can slightly see the cinder block edge/grout line just above Andre's right shoulder but the shadow is covering it somewhat.

1). As you can see, the whitish line that you say is the vertical grout line DIRECTLY above Elmer's left elbow actually STOPS just a little over half way down the cinder block and it does not come all the way down the cinder block. An actual grout line goes the FULL length of the cinder block and it would not stop just above Elmer's elbow...... grout lines go the full length of the cinder block. And as you can clearly see that vertical line directly above Elmer's elbow does not come down the full length of the cinder block or to Elmer's elbow and therefore that whitish line is probably not the grout line. It looks to me like that white line is either a scratch in the photo or some sort of chalk/paint mark made on the cinder block........... it's most like not a grout mark.


2). You can easily see the grayish horizontal grout lines between the cinder blocks. So, why would that one vertical grout line be solid white and the horizontal grout lines be gray? They should be the same color.

3). Also, cinder blocks are almost always offset when they are put up. So, the vertical grout line of one cinder block will not line up with the vertical grout line that is either DIRECTLY above or bellow it. But as you can see in that photo, near the ceiling light, the white line that you are calling the grout line covers the length of one block and then it lines up directly with the white line on the cinder block directly above it. And that should NOT be the case because cinder blocks are staggered when they are layed and the vertical grout line of one block should NOT be in line with the vertical grout line of the block that is directly above or bellow it. So again, what you are calling a vertical grout line between the cinder blocks is most likely not a vertical grout line but rather it is either a scratch on the photo or a white chalk/paint line put on the cinder blocks by someone.

4). The only vertical grout line or cinder block edge that you can see somewhat clearly is the short corner vertical line that is located just slightly above Andre's right shoulder and just bellow the horizontal shadow. That vertical grout line is rather short because Andre is blocking most of it. But you can see enough of it to realize that corner vertical grout line looks to be tilted and thus that indicates that the photo is tilted/slanted in Elmer's favor.

In my opinion, there is a definite camera tilt in that photo that favors Elmer.

Hi JT:

I don't watch basketball - can you tell me who the players are in this pic and what their heights are? Thanks. Click Here

That’s Dwight Howard (measured 6’9” at 18 but grew a bit more and is closer to 6’10” now) and Kobe Bryant (6’5”).

Click Here This is a legit 7’0”er (Pau Gasol) with Bryant.


Thanks, JT! Interesting photos. To throw in my take, I think that would still put Andre around 6'10"-6'11" considering the footwear advantage of the basketball players.


In regards to the Uncle Elmer/Andre pic, so cool! I definitely see a minimum of 1" difference, maybe closer 2", not to mention the camera angle issues.

Apparently, Andre and Uncle Elmer did compete in several matches together, see the very bottom of this website: Click Here

Maybe we can track down these matches? You'll also see the writer is claiming Elmer was 6'10" and the same height as Andre.


Personally, I'm wondering if Elmer was closer to 6'8"-6'9". It's hard to tell with pics. I'm trying to track down a good pic of him and Hill Billy Jim (who I'd put at a minimum 6'5") but so far I can only find ones where there heads were either titled back and/or they're wearing hats: Click Here and Click Here

That picture is a bit deceiving, but Andre definitely has 2-3" on Elmer/Plowboy Fraizer. Andre looks about 1-1.5" taller if we just take that picture at face value. But, Elmer was significantly closer to the camera. He had a pretty big camera advantage. That is why his body and head look so much bigger than they should compared to Andre's. Just look at their feet. If Andre were actually lined up with him, I bet Andre would look up to 3" taller. I think Elmer was 6'8-6'8.5" and Andre was 6'11".

--------------------------------------------------------------------


I agree. There also appears to be a rather significant tilt in that photo in favor of Elmer. If you look at the ceiling column directly above Andre and Elmer's head then you can see that there is a a tilt in that photo. If you were to correct the tilt then Andre would probably have about 2"-2.5" on Elmer. Elmer is also closer to the camera than Andre so if you were to also correct for that then Andre probably had about 2.5"-3" on Elmer in that photo.

Here is the photo with the tilt corrected...... If you factor in the that Andre was further from the camera then the height difference was even more.

Click Here


Also what kind of footwear was Elmer wearing. Who had the footwear advantage?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If it's Andre in wrestling boots he'll most likely always be at the disadvantage. He had to have just about the thinnest heel for a wrestling boot ever. I think in the 80's there might have been a bit more bottom to it, but if these are the same red boots we've seen displayed then there is hardly any lift at all.

You can kind of get an idea size wise between the two as Elmer was exiting the ring at the wedding segment from SNME. Andre was definitely taller. Yeah, the head is the giveaway in this shot. It's a closer shot that is taken from underneath both men so foreground to background movement will effect scale.

I think he was closer to 6'9" at his tallest. Here is an interview with Jim Cornette and Bobby Heenan, and Jim says Frazier was only a little shorter than Andre when the two were wrestling in Memphis. He claimed he was 6'10" and taller than Ernie Ladd. Click Here

I am changing my estimation slightly. I think Frazier was 6'8.5"-6'9" and Andre was 6'11"-6'11.5".

You can lose 1 cm height in every 55 lbs weight gain

Young Andre in mid 1960's 220-275 lbs with 6'11.5'' 2.12cm he became overweight by years.

Andre hit 500 lbs in 1980s : 4 cm height loss 6'10''

6'9'' in 1990s

Just look at the ceiling above their heads or use the top of the light fixture in the background and you can see the obvious tilt that favors Elmer in a rather big way.

If you were to straighten out the camera tilt and compensate for Elmer being closer to the camera then Andre was probably around 3" taller than Elmer. If Elmer was around 6'8" then Andre was probably 6'11" in that photo.
Steve said on 14/Jun/17
Again the new photo with Elmer shows Andre to be max 6'11". If Elmer was 6'8" or 204cm, Andre did not look more than 3 inches taller, that's being generous to Andre and taking into consideration that Elmer was slightly in front of Andre in the photo. Everything points to what I have been always saying, peak Andre 211 - 212cm max peak height.
Chaz said on 14/Jun/17

That’s about as close to the “Holy Grail” as we’ve gotten so far, although Frazier (in sandals?) is a little closer to the camera. I always thought Frazier was a strong 6’7” to 6’8” with around a 2 inch height difference between the two Click Here which is what Chris’s picture seems to indicate.

IIRC Frazier’s website claims both he and Andre were the same height at 6’10”.

It's sometimes hard to find new height pics on Andre, but Chris from the Andre the Giant facebook page managed to dig this pic up.

Probably the only pic of Andre & Stan Frazier (Uncle Elmer) standing together in the same pic.

Not much difference between the two. I always thought Andre would have a couple of inches on Elmer, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Hi JT:

I don't watch basketball - can you tell me who the players are in this pic and what their heights are? Thanks. Click Here

That’s Dwight Howard (measured 6’9” at 18 but grew a bit more and is closer to 6’10” now) and Kobe Bryant (6’5”).

Click Here This is a legit 7’0”er (Pau Gasol) with Bryant.

Yes Andre was about 6'10'' and Shaq was about 7'.6''

_______________________________________________________________-

It's funny how you are Okay with a 40 year old Andre being 6"10 evening and apparently never taller, but its Okay for a 45 year old Big Show to have lost an inch and a half. Again, a 1988 Andre was 6'10" to 6'11" depending on the time of day. Peak Andre was probably somewhere between 6'11" and 7", depending on the time of day.


I have always said Andre was about 6'11'' morning 6'10'' evening,so should be listed at 6'10.5'' same with Big Show if he was 7' would have been in the morning,he should be listed at no more than 6'11.5'' because it's clear Shaq was at least 1'' taller,

Here is a photo of Baba and Andre that I hadn't seen before. You can't see their legs so I don't know how straight their legs are but they are wearing their wrestling gear. Baba usually didn't slouch but he did tend to stand with his head tilted down. And Andre, especially at this point in his life, was notorious for bad posture. Nonetheless.......

And I wonder if there is any video footage of this meeting between Baba and Andre

In a few words it said that Andre was about 7'0 and Big John Studd 6'7.
dicksock said on 3/Jun/17
iconjj said on 1/Jun/17
If Andre stated 7'0.25 he most likely embellished it by two inches which is a standard practice in wrestling.

____________________

Remember though that height was given in centimeters, not inches. He claimed 214 cm, so he was not thinking in terms of inches and feet. It was probably either his absolute peak morning measurement or his height in shoes. Also, one thing I've learned is that there is no standard practice when it comes to billed heights. It has varied throughout the years and is different from one country to the next. Look at guys like Randy Orton and Bob Backlund. They are billed at their legit heights. Even Big Show has been billed at 7' when that was very close to legit height. Many just have a billing only 1" beyond their legit heights. Then there are those who are billed way above their legit heights, like Batista at 6'6", Kane as 7', John Studd as 6'10, Giant Haystacks at 6'11", and even Kurt Angle at 6'2".

Aside from that, one thing I've been thinking about is the suit measurements we have from a young Andre. It was said that the collar area of his jacket was 72" or 6'2". I think I believe this.

Here is Andre from 1987 standing to his absolute full height and probably not in cowboy boots: Click Here
If you look closely, you'll see that his collar is about 2" above Bobby Heenan. Bobby would have been about 6' in shoes. If you look where his collar lines up with on his face, you'll see that there is maybe 10" from the top of the collar to the top of Andre's head, assuming his head was about 12". This would mean that in 1987 standing as straight is possible in the daytime, he was about 7' in shoes (probably not cowboy boots). So he was around 6'11" or so barefoot. In that video, you have 5'8" Gene, 5'11" Heenan, and 6'11" Andre.

He was a good bit taller than 6'7 bjs who in wrestling boots was close to 6'9 bjs was taller than 6'5-6 guys like jake hogan omg so andre was still 7ft 1985 i think a fair breakdown of andre is 1972 216cm 1982 214cm 85 213cm 1987 211cm 93 209cm its not so much he shrank its bad posture crippling back bad knees alcohol and massive weight gain
Telamonas said on 2/Jun/17
iconjj your argument is logical, however at 1971 (for details see: Click Here) he wasn't yet at WWF so he didn't need to exaggerate at all. (or WWWF I don't know the exact name). Again I don't have personal opinion (as I never met him) but many people who spent time with him like Terry Todd, Ernie Ladd, Tony Lister either said many years after his death (so no kayfabe) that he was 7'1 (Lister), at least 7' and maybe more (Todd), taller than me by far( Ernie Ladd being 6'9).

If Andre stated 7'0.25 he most likely embellished it by two inches which is a standard practice in wrestling. Vince J gave him a 6 inch boost hence the 7'4-7'5 listing....which would make him 6'10-6'11; more than likely that's a barefoot estimate.

Editor Rob: alive today and he might have been down to 6ft 7-8, if he still could stand up.

HeightcrazyRed6ft I think a 6'5 guy can tell the difference between a 6'11 and a 7'1 guy. Furthermore being in WWF he would have information about Andre. However even Andre claimed 214cm (7'0.25) when he was 25 years old and I found his claim very close to the truth.

It would be much harder for him to guess the height of a guy like Andre, than seeing if a guy like Hogan was the same height as him ....
He clearly said they were both 6´5", he said he was 6´7" in special made boots and he measured easy an inch taller in this boots than Hogan in wrestlingboots, so it all adds up.

****sock, unless you can see the footwear, video is unreliable, especially one involving Baba, who was known to stand on small boxes in his interviews, in the same way McMahon used to have Andre stand on boxes to make him look 7'4". Also, you can tell Andre is leaning forward in that video, not really standing at his full height, whereas Baa is stretched to his maximum height. Andre was no doubt about 6'10"-6'11" towards his death, i dont think anyone argues that. Andre's posture has always been ****, and MUCH worse in his later years from 86 onward, and progressively much worse each successive year, this has been proven time and again by many forum posters over the years, i don't think even you can't deny that. Additionally, the pronating of the neck forward, continuing spinal curvature(scoliosis), and the "hunch", are all well documented conditions of people with gigantism/acromegaly that develops in their later years, and advanced rapidly towards the end. Look at Sandy Allen, the female giant who was on Howard Stern. she once stood 7'7 1/4", as measured by the guiness book, and by the time she died, she stood around 7 feet tall, due to advancing scoliosis from her acromegaly.


_______________________

I've never read such rubbish in all my life. Baba was known for standing on boxes? Not really. Both guys were in their ring gear. It's obvious. The difference between them in that interview was the same as when they were in the ring together. Baba was about 6'8" and Andre was maybe 6'10.5" there. Andre's posture was perfect. He wasn't leaning in at all. At one point in the segment, he stands as straight as humanly possible and the difference between them doesn't change. Andre was never more than a solid 6'11". The picture of him with Baba from 1982 is useless. He obviously wasn't that tall next to Baba. Andre didn't just have an inch of footwear advantage. It was more like 2". Those heels gave him well over 2" of lift. Baba's shoes had a very modest heel, probably giving him about half an inch. And his head was tilted down. Take away the 2" footwear advantage and the posture advantage and we're left with about a 3" difference. This fits perfectly with Andre being 6'11"/6'11.5" in his prime. Obviously, he hadn't lost any height by 1982 as he was only 36 years old by that point.

Here is Baba and Andre from 1979:Click Here
Andre would have been in his cowboy boots with that outfit, and yet appears to have about 3" on Baba.

We know 6'5"-6'6" guys like Hogan pretty much came up to his eyes in 1980. We know he was no more than 8-9" taller than 6'3" Bill Watts when both guys were in cowboy boots, but Andre's heels were bigger. Hogan was more like 6'5.5", he was never a solid 6'6". This has been stated by 6'5" Tiny Lister who worked very closely with Hogan in 1988/1989. Plus, all the visual evidence in the world supports it.

i agree, Baba was a solid 6'8", hes had many full photo shots with other wrestlers of known height to prove that.. but to say Hogan was 6'5.5", well, i would disagree, having met the man both in the mid eighties and later in life in the 2000's. in the 80's, he stood next to my father, whom is every bit of 6'4", and he had two inches on him, solid. there was no 'weak 6'6", he was a solid 6'6", all day long. in fact, my father had on work boots, and hogan had his wrestling boots on, so i would even say that my father had a slight footwear advantage.

Now, when we saw him again in 2005, he was barely 6'4.5" himself, just a half inch taller than my father. My father was shocked at how much he shrank.

There is a photo of Hogan with Baba, they are about two inches apart, but you can't be certain, because their footwear isn't seen:
Click Here

heres a photo of Andre and Baba. and while Andre is past his prime here, i would say most of his height is preserved, and hes probably within a half inch of his peak height. He has on cowboy boots, and baba has sneakers on, so Andre has about a 1" footwear advantage, which puts him around 4 inches taller than Baba, rather than the apparent 5 inches. at a time frame where Andre isnt young with a fully straight spine, he still has 4 inches, or close to it, on a 6'8" Baba.

I'm not Rob, but from what I saw 660lbs looked believable, but it doesn't seem probable as I don't believe he was ever billed that heavy. He could have been 575lbs at his heaviest. Weight though can be trickier than height.

Click Here Andre's boots definitely do not have the usual sized cowboy boot heels I believe Bill Watts was billed at 6'3" but he did look around that height. This football site has him at 6'2" Click Here There's no reason why they would not be in their respective cowboy boots when standing side by side as they would have wanted to make Andre look as tall as possible. Watts would not have looked that tall if just in his socks like Vince used to do.

Watts probably is in cowboy boots here as the height difference with Andre in wrestling boots is not that much Click Here

RoelC, those could be the same boots. Click Here The Andre/Wilt photo (~ Oct. 1983?) is not of as good a quality as the video (from Sept. 1983), which I lightened, but the left boot has a similar worn area at the tip of the sole,, same creases, etc. if they are not the same, the manufacturer (Tony Lama) presumably would have used a similar size heel in all of the boots that were custom made for Andre so the boot looked in proportion.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He should be, Big Guido measured up to Big Show better than Haystacks did. Haystacks looked around the same height as Tenta when Tenta held him back from getting in the cage against Hogan when Loch Ness debuted at Superbrawl (?). I'd say Haystacks and Tenta are a bit under OMG and Studd height wise by a half inch or inch or something like that. Big Guido looked around Kurgan's height to me.

Dicksock.. a 1990 Andre was a hunched over bloated and nearly dead version of a much younger Andre, and yes, he still had about 2" + on Tyler Mane ( 6'8"). there have been many picture of Andre from his later years, superimposed with all matching points on the legs and lower body , and his torso in later years is shorter, especially in the neck area, Andre having developed a 'hunchback' and easily having lost two inches. his chin used to be several inches above his shoulders, but in later years his head is hunched forward and his chin is below his shoulder level most days

and FYI, Andre's wrists were measured by that hand surgeon in texas over 12" in circumference ;)

____________________

I question the validity of those superimposed pictures. I just don't see any significant height loss for Andre. I doubt he even lost 1". I never really saw him look any taller than 6'11.5" barefoot, and he still looked around 6'11" or close to it by the end.

Here he is in 1990 with the solid 6'8" Giant Baba: Click Here
He was standing to his full height there and looked about 2.5" taller. So, he was a minimum of 6'10.5" there. Again, he was no more than 8" taller than 6'3" Bill Watts in 1983, and he was never more than 6" taller than 6'5.5" Hulk Hogan. Even in 1974, he didn't look any more than 10" taller than 6'1" Frank Valois. I think he was maybe 6'11"/6'11.5" peak and still very close to 6'11" towards the end.

Also, where did you see that Andre had his wrists measured by a hand surgeon? I find it hard to believe his wrists were quite that big considering his WM III stats listed his wrists as 11". I would guess they were 10-11" around - which is huge.

Click Here This is within a month or so of Andre being in the Conan movie so those are probably the brown cowboy boots he wore with Wilt and Arnold and with Letterman in early 1984.

Nice find, although it's still speculating if the boots on display are the same ones that Andre wore with Wilt & Arnold. Andre was the highest paid wrestler in the world, so I'm sure he could afford more than one pair of cowboy boots. He could've owned dozens of pairs for all we know. Most of them seem to have been made by Tony Lama from El Paso, Texas.

The boots on display don't seem to be the ones he wore with Wilt & Arnold though. The colour of the sole on those boots was the same colour as the rest of the boot, whereas the sole on the boots on display have a different colour.

Needless to say the heels on those boots are huge! Easily 2.5 inches.

________________

Great footage. The one thing that stood out to me was the size of Andre's wrists. He probably had the biggest wrists I've ever seen. They had to be about 10" around, at least. Mine are a little over 8" and his were definitely way bigger. As far as his height, he was for 100% fact no more than 8" taller than 6'3" Bill Watts. Both were presumably in cowboy boots. I honestly don't understand why it's so hard for some people to tell he was about 6'11". It's so obvious that was his true height. He always looked about 6'11" and that is what Adrian Street said he was in 1969 when he left the UK. That is also what Sam Muchnick said he was. For those that don't know, Sam Muchnick was one of biggest NWA promoters ever and worked with Andre for many years. I can't find the interview, but when asked about Andre's height, he said Andre was about 6'10/6'11" legit. It's obvious at this point that's what he was. I think his height should be changed to 6'11" and there is little evidence he lost any real height. Even in 1990, he looked about 2.5" taller than the solid 6'8" Giant Baba. There is a point in their match with Tyler Mane where you can see Baba was the same height or taller than Tyler Mane. This also means Baba would have been about the same height as Kevin Nash because Nash was clearly about the same height as Mane. Bottom line is that Andre was about 6'11" or a tad over at his tallest and maybe lost .5" or something with age.

With Andre's chest being measured a relaxed 65" @ 425-430 lbs? Then...70" to 71" is very possible once he hit 500-520 lbs'

What do you think Andre's real chest measurement was? 71 inches seems difficult to believe.

_____________

I think he was that big or very close to it at his biggest. He was just so wide. I would say he was deceptively wide. I'm sure Hogan's chest was at least 56" at his biggest and probably bigger. Andre did have his suit measurements listed from the early 70s, his chest measurement was 65" I believe. He was far from his biggest at that point. 71" was probably pretty accurate.

Just look at Andre from behind when he's walking backstage:

He was beyond gigantic at that point.

Melvin Jones,

I think Big SHow's was a 64". Andre may have been around the same, Not Sure as big as a 71". Big Show had a good deal more muscle mass than Andre who was never really all that Muscular. His Size gave him the power the throw guys around, same as Big Show, but Show had alot more Muscle to his frame. ( Andre Did not Work out like the Wrestlers of the 90's and 2000's.)

I wonder if this man had the largest head of any human being during his lifetime.

He certainly did
Logic said on 24/Apr/17
Here is a photo of wrestler Steven Regal (William Regal) standing with Giant Haystacks.

Steven Regal is probably around 6'2" And Haystacks does not look to be 6" taller than him. In my opinion, he was probably around 6'7" or a tad over at his peak.

@heightcrazyRed6ft,

Of Course Big Show had thicker footwear Than Andre. The WWF during Andre's time waslisting a 6'11" Man at 7'4" was retarded. When Show came to the WWF they had him at 7'2", Now 7'0. Least they are getting better with their Bull****. Ad 6'10 Man Listed at 7'0 is alot better than a 6'11 Man or lets say 7'0, being listed at 7'5".

Andre at 7'4" and later 7'5" was utter Bull****
___________________________________________-

Yes, but in all fairness, after seeing both Rik Smits and Andre up close and in person. Personally a 6'11" ,in 1988 Andre, was so much more impressive and the guy you remember, than your "normal" proportioned 7'3" basket ball player. Smits was a super tall guy, a whole foot taller than me. Andre was a true giant in every aspect of the word.

Even old Wilt never looked shorter than Shaq who was in big basketball shoes in the most of their pics...






So these wrestling backstage pic comparison only proof that Big Show had a massive footwear advantage over Andre in ring gear.

The video is sketchy at best but the Photos at the end of the Video Show Andre and Show next to Mean gene. What Strikes me is the Big Show seems to have a much longer neck in proportion to Andre who seemed to have a higher Shoulder level ( Around WM 3)but much shorter neck.

If they faced off, It would be a bit weird b/c you would have Big Show who would be an inch taller, but Andre who's chest and Shoulders would be higher than the Big Shows.
dicksock said on 18/Apr/17
Danimal: Yes, Big Show may have been 7' at his tallest. But, college listings aren't always reliable. The Rock had 6'4" and 6'5" listings in football. I can pretty much guarantee he was always shorter than 7'1" tops Shaq.

Andre was genuinely a GIANT. Rumor and innuendo aside that mother-f'er may have been 7'6'. I remember standing next to him many times trying to look him in the face during a conversation and ending up with a sore neck. GIANT.

Where have you seen Hogan tip toeing? Haystacks was easily 3.5" taller than 6'4.5" Pat Roach. Haystacks was around 6'8" at his tallest and Andre was 6'11" at his tallest. By the time Haystacks got to WCW, he was about 6'6.5" and "The Giant" was about 6'11.5" with about 1" of footwear advantage. Andre was never more than 6" taller than 6'5.5" MAX Hogan, and that is a fact. That is before any alleged height loss. Andre was 7' MAX out of bed and 6'11" at night. Game over.

The Giant from 1995-1999 was bare minimum 7'0" barefoot. Imo, he was 7'0.5" (listed as 7'1" in college).

***********************************************************************

Hogan clearly goes slightly on his tip toes in this ne wm3 pic JT provided, the boots don´t stay in this angle during the match so he gains around a half inch to his normal height in footwear.

I agree Andre was 6´11" evening, but out of bed could´ve been near 7´1".
I lost a full inch from 6´1" to 6ftflat out of bed/evening before disc surgery, so Andre could easy lose up to 2 inches.


Haystacks was not 6´8"evening, he looked 1.5" under 6´8.5" Giant Baba, hope someone puts the match up again, Baba had 3" on peak Hogan
wich makes Haystacks 6´7" with a chance of 6´7.5".

Haystacks looked still 1.5" taller than Hogan in JT´s WCW comparison, so they had pretty much the same heightloss of 0.5-1" from their prime to mid nineties.

For the Haystacks/ Roach comparison
The high camera angle with roach makes the gap look bigger than it actually is, 3 inches maximum.

"...you will see Haystacks standing upright,and looking at 6'4.5'' Pat Roach about the only time in the match.he's a forehead taller draw a line? and Hogan was not more than 2cm taller than Roach."
SO Hogan was probably between 6'5" and 6'5½".

read right and you don´t need to argue, I said putting his face at the same size.
Andres posture is crap and he´s already a couple of inches taller than Haystacks.
It´s not the same camera angle like the Andre Hogan pic, so it´s not 100% comparable

Andre has the lowest footwear facing Haystacks and about 1cm sole facing Hogan who´s tip toeing.

Haystacks looks 6´7"-6´7.5" facing Roach but its a high cam angle... but I would go with this mark.
Haystacks would be max 6´8" flat in his thin boots, Hogan with solid 1" boots and tiptoeing near 6´6.75-6´7"

Hogan was a full inch taller than Hillbilly Jim, so he would have a full inch on Pat Roach barefoot.

Peak Haystacks comes out out same height as peak Undertaker.

And it's no good anyone saying about heels with Haystacks in that photo they are just has flat as each others,in the Hogan Andre one they both have thiker heels. if Haystacks lifted he's head up.I can't see anymore than 2-2.5'' between them.

That Haystacks Pic really does Shed Some Light. I have never seen that Pic But Andre being over 7'0 really doesn't look like it was the case.

Haystacks was Billed at 6'11 but The Big Show had him by Over 4" ( See Video). Big Show looked taller next to Haystacks than Andre did if we use that pic of Andre and Haystacks. Problem is that's the only Pic Available of the two together it would seem. Big Show I believe was 6'11" when Younger, Putting Giant Haystacks around 6'7". Andre if Straightened up would be around 6'10 tops with Haystacks.

You can't really tell from that,the camara is over Haystacks side and he's bigger so nera the camara,like in the Wilt Andre photos.and Andre has he's knees bent.or tho Haystacks has got he's head down looking at the ref.the only thing you can tell for sure is there feet are about the same size,and they both have low heels.

They were both disqualified,for fighting befor the Bell,that is all I can find out about the fight.

And sorry NCL I ment 2.5''and those photos you have posted of Hogan Tenta all have Hogan streching up.with Tenta in relaxed pose,look at the fight Tenta looks slightly taller most of the time,Not by much,I think Hogan was 196cm Tenta 197cm.

And @HeightcrazyRed6ft Andre has not got 6'' on Hogan even if he was 6'6' he would come to just over the tip of Andre's nose,if Andre was 7' he comes up to he's eyes.
____________________________

Yes a young Shaq was taller than an old Andre. Young Shaq probably a little over 7' maybe even close to 7'1" barefoot, late 80's Andre 6'10"-6'11" barefoot. A young Hogan would have been a little taller than a young Kobe and a young Andre probably would have been a little shorter than a Young Shaq. JT's pictures are always meant to be deceiving, so I stand by my statement that nobody cares about his pictures anymore.

Rob recently said the lowest he would argue for Hogan is 6´5.5". To me it´s the maximum I would argue.
In JT´s pic Hogan has not only bigger sole than Andre, it´s clear to see Hogan tip toeing a bit.

Hogan therefore has about 2cm advantage over Andre who´s still solid 5 inches taller.

Andre at WM3 had very close to 6" on Hogan both barefoot, so noway under 6´11" flat.

Misunderstanding maybe? I was saying possibly pegging Hogan at 6'6.5" in boots and that would make him 2.5" taller than a barefoot 6'4" Jim Harris, not 3.5"

I unfortunately can't seem to find a good staredown between the two but see this video from 2:34 and on: Click Here to be fair I don't think your video or mine has the best angles. The only other I could find is this, look at about 4:54 Click Here

I know there's a lot of debate of Hogan's peak height here but the general consensus is 6'5"-6'6" I think. So how about a compromise, and maybe we put Hogan at 6'6.5" in his boots? I'm going to guess his boots give him a maximum of a 1" boost and he's leaning up a bit. So this would put him at a proposed 6'5.5" barefoot peak which I think would be fair if the general consensus is a 6'5"-6'6" peak.

We also got this Shaq pic from the same spot: Click Here


I also came across this great video with Andre the Giant and Mandy Patakin being interviewed about The Princess Bride. Click Here at 3:45 he's asked about his shoe-size and he says "20 I think".

It's amazing to see him compared to Mandy Patakin whom I'm guessing is close to 6' himself. Andre had a really long torso. If you look at the JT pics, his legs aren't actually that much longer than Hogan's. His height was all in his torso and his head.

My personal guess before anyone does any photoshops (anybody feel free!) I think Andre was 7' peak, 6'10" by the time he passed away.

Boss, I'm very intrigued by the height measurement post you put about Andre in Canada. I hope we can find that footage one day. What is your guess for Andre's peak height again?

Bruce Prichard said on 2/Apr/17
From someone with a different insight on the subject Andre was just enormous. There's tall and then there's GIANT, Andre falls into the latter category. Did I ever ask Andre how tall he was? No. Did I see him around other tall giants like John Studd, One Man Gang and Earthquake? Often. From my actual experience Andre was easily 7 feet tall and as already mentioned his posture had probably diminished by the time I was last around him in the early 90's. So take it for what it's worth or not worth for that matter, Andre the Giant was not just a gimmick. Anyone else's claim would just be rumour and innuendo.

After all these years, Basher (Chaz, JT...)
is more a running gag than an offense but based at some true points:

JT´s pic is tilted in Wilts favour, he reduced Andre close to 2" and
says 1" footwear - so near 3" cowboyboots????? Try 2" or just a tad more

Wilts head is stretched over the line about 1cm and Andre posture stays the same???

JT still has to much fishy things going against Andre in his comparisons

Wilt in 2-2.5cm boots was NOT taller than Andre in Cowboyboots if both stood straight for a measurement.
Either they were the same height or Andre a tad taller... up to 0.25"

So Whatever Wilt measured barefoot at this point, Andre was around 3cm shorter.


__



And Chaz, stop just stop that insane laying down makes you noticable taller thing with Wilts measurement...
You´ll have to downgrade a bunch of celebs if Wilt wasn´t standing at least 7´0.5" for the most of the day.


And if you have peak Andre evening at 208cm... you get peak Haystacks evening 197cm....




Typo corrected (Wilt was in 2-2,5cm boots not inches)

There is No Andre bashing,from me or JT,just getting at the truth,I have yet to see any evening photos of him in the ring looking over 6'10''.and if you read what I said,I said that that 208cm could of been an Evening height,so would more than likely be 6'11'' out of bed.or are you trying to say a 200kg man is the Same height from morning till night?


*************************************************************************************************************************



Andre old and complete broken down was 6´10" in the ring next to Tyler Mane... and he didn´t lay down in a volvo before the match.

Andre at WM3 was still solid 6´11"...

After all these years, Basher (Chaz, JT...)
is more a running gag than an offense but based at some true points:

JT´s pic is tilted in Wilts favour, he reduced Andre close to 2" and
says 1" footwear - so near 3" cowboyboots????? Try 2" or just a tad more

Wilts head is stretched over the line about 1cm and Andre posture stays the same???

JT still has to much fishy things going against Andre in his comparisons

Great find!
IMO it is around 5" difference there and Hogan is not only in bigger footwear, but also on his tip toes.
So the real gap is between 5.5" - 6 inches wich puts Andre around 6´11".

Thats already a past prime Andre who could barely wrestle and had back and knee surgery.
Michael Voorhees said on 31/Mar/17
There's a very old video of Andre back in the mid 1960's on YouTube that I seen where a young Andre say's he's 6'10'1/2. But he could of grew after that, because he was so young at the time. But then again The Big Show said on his WWE DVD that he was 7'0' tall by the time he was 16 years old. And The Big Show didn't get any taller after that. So who knows?

JT,

That Pic is how I envisioned it. Maybe his head down a little lower because in the original Pic Wilt is farther then the Perspective you put him at. Wilt would have Andre by around 2" In Similar Footwear.

There is no way Andre was taller than Wilt i had seen a picture years ago that i wish i knew what magazine it was of the three of them in street clothes Wilt was clearly taller by about 2 inches and Andre was probably wearing cowboy boots
Jordan87 said on 30/Mar/17
Dicksock,

"Andre looks leaner and fitter than Show ever did."

Leaner? Yes. Fitter? Prime for Prime Big Show had ALOT More Muscle Mass than Andre. Again, Big Show lifted Weights and that's my point. Show, while being more Muscular was also Faster and DID Much more in the Ring than Andre ever did.

Look at the Shot from Big Show from WM 2000 and then Show men when Andre was ever More Muscular.

Stop letting your Delusional Lust for Andre cloud your Common Sense.

Rob, has 6'9.5 been ruled out?

Editor Rob: considering he has been photographed with people like Wilt Chamberlain who were measured, I think I'd rule out 6ft 9.5...and Arnie would CERTAINLY rule that out, it would have made him sub 6ft peak!

********************************************************************************************************************************


Even if Wilt raised his eyeline a bit in this pic he wouldn´t come out taller than Andre.

Click Here

Wilt was measured 7´1 1/16" and 7´0.5" years later, Andre in cowboyboots was at least as tall,
if not a tad taller than Wilt in his footwear.

So if we figure out the difference in their footwearheight, we get pretty close to the real gap.

Wilt was in 2-2,5cm footwear and Andre in ~5-5,5cm - so 3cm-3,5cm difference.
Regarding Wilts barefootheight height 214cm-216cm and Andre slightly edging him out,
makes Andre 211-213cm in this pic or between 6´11" and 7´0"



I go with 6´11.25" barefoot Andre in the Wilt pics.




A 6´9.5" Andre would need 10-11cm boots edging Wilt there - impossible

Assuming Bill Eadie's height is 186 cm, Andre' s height was 213 cm. Actually Andre was a bit close to the camera so André had a lower height.
As I think, height is a physical event, so I think that we should judge from many images. Without sticking to specific images.

It's quite ignorant and really just stupid for people posting on here as some self imposed experts about Andre that you all argue his feet stopped growing or they were never that big, and worse that a measurement or size from 1980 is some kind of proof. Andre had gigantism, his head, hands and feet never stopped growing and at an accelerated rate right up to his death, what is it about this scientifically proven fact that you don't understand or comprehend? This also is why a weight of 520lbs from 1985 is useless to say how heavy he really got. I can see him easily haven been over 600lbs at times, and that it fluctuated 50-80 lbs at times. As for height, he was over 7' easily before starting to hunch over.

Highest reported weight was 565 pounds. It's possible that he was a little over 7'0" before height loss started kicking in.

Chaz you think Haystacks was 6'8.5" and you just repeat whatever JT says. You're lucky you can even spell your user name. Enough said. Anyone who thinks we're ever gonna come to a agreement here are so wrong. I think Andre was 2.14m and so does the majority of the voters here because that's what the facts show. Andre could have measured the 7'1" in Jody Hamilton's story in morning or maybe he was in wrestling boots but either way it's the best Andre measurement story we got. At least I use fact with my estimates and back it up with links.

With that camera angle, those supposed size 28 cowboy boots of Andre probably measure around 16 inches long, not 15.5”. When Shaq wore a size 22, his shoe reportedly measured 16 inches long. He now wears a size 23 after a foot injury.

Click Here There’s no way those are size 28 cowboy boots. Again poster Chris obtained a cut-out of Andre’s foot which measures around 13 inches long (equivalent of size 17) and would probably fit pretty well in those cowboy boots. If the boot is labeled size 28, it was done for effect. Andre's foot length may have increased a bit as he aged (like most everyone) but they undoubtedly got wider due to his obesity, acromegaly and fluid build-up from congestive heart failure.

You are trying to put words in my mouth and have everyone here except your word for fact on your questionable reasoning. I never said his feet are for sure these sizes but Andre's boots are certainly out there in many different sizes. So we should take your word for it and ignore "actual" pairs of his boots. You only make sense to yourself. The majority of people here believe Andre was 2.14m as shown by the average Guess here and that makes you wrong again. Why don't you post another youtube video cause that's all you have ever brought here and of course your ignorant attitude.

Boss: You backed up nothing with any logic or reason. You just keep posting these links to boots that we know are not accurate. I am NOT speculating. I just repeating what Andre himself said. Obviously if Andre said he wore a 20, 22, and 24 in different interviews, he never was above 20. His feet were not getting longer past the mid 80s and he said he wore a size 20 in 1988, less than 5 years before his death. If he wore a size 20 shoe in 1988, he never wore anything bigger than that. You don't wear bigger size cowboy boots than regular dress shoes. You can keep arguing this until you're blue in the face, but anybody with any common sense can look at the facts and tell I'm right. At the end of his life, he claimed to wear a size 20. There was no more growing taking place.

Boss, hate to correct you there but Andre wore cowboy boots at least up to 1986. There are promotional photos floating around for the Wrestlemania 2 battle royal and Andre had his boots on most likely because Too Tall Jones was there too. Can't say for sure he wore them any other time.

I actually never said when he stopped wearing cowboy boots that was dicksock who said he stopped wearing in 1984.
Boss said on 22/Mar/17
dicksock said on 21/Mar/17
Boss: You have no way of knowing if those cowboy boots you post are even legit. Obviously they are not. I'll say it again: Andre claimed to wear size 20 cowboy boots just before he turned 38. He obviously didn't wear anything above that. As Chaz would say, all of these size 24 or 28 boots are just rubbish. I don't know why this is hard for you to understand. In the late 70s, he claimed to wear a size 22 wrestling boot, yet I've seen pictures online that claim size 26. Obviously, Andre wasn't going to understate the size of his feet. So we DO know for sure Andre didn't wear over a size 20 cowboy boot and his hands and feet didn't get any bigger than they were in 1984. Again, it's okay to admit you're wrong about something.

Again I posted and backed up everything I said. You are just speculating and you could very well be right as he said size 20 and I'm okay with that but he also claimed other sizes. There are all different sized boots of Andre in museums and some for sale ranging from sizes 24, 26 and 28 and that's a fact.
Also André was a pituitary giant in adolescents and became acromegalic in adulthood. Acromegaly is an adult disease.

Boss, Remember Andre was an ACROMEGALIC giant, he did not grow much upwards like Kosen or Wadlow did who happened to have just pituitary gigantism or hyperplasia. But the point is Andre, Big Show and Khali even for that matter had Acromegaly. Gigantism is when your body produces too much hormones that it causes your body to grow in length more in width and Acromegaly causes your head to elongate faster making it more long and body grow wider ,thicker, enlarged organs and etc.. but yeah Andre's feet were HUGE but I doubt it was over size 20. If it was at least 20 or more it would look similar to Kosens feet Click Here

Andre gave his shoe size as 20 on the today show. He was wearing shoes. His cowboy boots were probably made bigger because of the enormus size of his foot.

____________

You are wrong for a fact. Andre wore cowboy boots on David Letterman in 1984 and said they were size 20. So we know for a fact his cowboy boots were not ever above a size 20. That's one of the most popular Andre videos on the internet, so I'm surprised an expert such as yourself was unaware of this fact.



I've seen the Letterman clip and every other one many times. Andre's feet were continually growing for starters. Here they are for sale at over $1000 at size 24. I back up all my posts with fact. More than I can say for most here.

Click Here

__________

That is absurd. His feet were not getting any longer. Why can't some guys just admit when they are wrong? He didn't even wear cowboy boots after 1984 anyway. The idea that you think his feet would have grown 4 sizes into his late 30s/early 40s is absolutely ridiculous. But as I said, he didn't even wear cowboy boots after 1984, so size 20 would be the biggest size he wore. And as far as normal shoes, he claimed to wear a size 20 in 1988. Also, it's not like people need a bigger size for cowboy boots then they do for their regular shoes. Often times, people actually wear a little smaller size for cowboy boots.


I posted a pair of Andre's size 24 for sale on the wrestling auction site so what are you talking about. You can buy them if you like and they are over a $1000 and guaranteed authentic. All you ever do is post youtube videos. Andre's height is at 7' here and the average Guess for people on here is 2.14m.

The website indicates they are size 28, not 24. Regardless, both sizes are ridiculous for Andre and there’s zero evidence those were ever Andre’s. That boot measures around 15.5” long. I wear a size 15 Hush Puppies shoe that is around 13.75” long. Click Here I don’t have cowboy boots to compare but if that’s really Andre’s boot, the size can’t be all that much larger than size 15 considering that Andre’s (or anyone’s) foot can’t extend into the toe area given the pointy design.

If Andre wore 24 or 26 or 28 boots, it’s so he could pack in as many Dr. Scholl’s inserts as Vince could buy.

Andre gave his shoe size as 20 on the today show. He was wearing shoes. His cowboy boots were probably made bigger because of the enormus size of his foot.

You are wrong for a fact. Andre wore cowboy boots on David Letterman in 1984 and said they were size 20. So we know for a fact his cowboy boots were not ever above a size 20. That's one of the most popular Andre videos on the internet, so I'm surprised an expert such as yourself was unaware of this fact.



I've seen the Letterman clip and every other one many times. Andre's feet were continually growing for starters. Here they are for sale at over $1000 at size 24. I back up all my posts with fact. More than I can say for most here.

That is absurd. His feet were not getting any longer. Why can't some guys just admit when they are wrong? He didn't even wear cowboy boots after 1984 anyway. The idea that you think his feet would have grown 4 sizes into his late 30s/early 40s is absolutely ridiculous. But as I said, he didn't even wear cowboy boots after 1984, so size 20 would be the biggest size he wore. And as far as normal shoes, he claimed to wear a size 20 in 1988. Also, it's not like people need a bigger size for cowboy boots then they do for their regular shoes. Often times, people actually wear a little smaller size for cowboy boots.

To everyone, it's more so common for big men to claim their shoe size to high extent to be like giant among other men. Kristian Nairn whom Rob met claims his shoe size are 17 which I doubt, although like Andre and Big Show he does have a very wide feet but smaller. Click Here Click Here

Here is Jim Cornette comparing Big Show and Andre for nearly 10 minutes:

He referred to Andre as being "7' or nearly that" in his prime. What a shock...

Barefoot Ed Jones was 6'8.5" to a weak 6'9"! Not 6'10"'!

Big Show had already blimped by '99. He looked very lean and athletic as The Giant in '95. I doubt there's much in the leanness between peak fitness André and Wight. We do have lost of tape of Wight looking amazing though and performing crazy moves for a 7 foot normally proportioned man.
Boss said on 18/Mar/17
Here from 1997. Funny you guys will argue this from Meltzer but swear by his Andre estimate.
Click Here


Here at 17:45 mark Reese clearly states that Wight wore lifts in his boots but Reese would be taller barefoot.
Click Here

Andre was taller than Big Show peak barefoot. You would have to do comparisons of Andre in cowboy boots to equal Big Show in boots with lifts plus the chunky heels on his boots. Big Show had better posture and was always trying to look as tall as he could. Andre was always relaxed with head titled down.

Dicksock,

Soon as Dan Chernau is done spamming emails for his wrestling Mod Crap he may possibly challenge you to a fight. See he seems to have sensual feelings for Andre and don't dare say Andre is under the 7'0 Mark. You may send poor elderly dan into into a diabetic coma!!!

I think I can speak for everyone on this page when I tell you to stop messing with that guy. It's not funny. It's just disrespectful and mean. Also, your opinions on Andre and Hulk are a bit misguided. Big Show was not a better athlete or in better shape than Andre when Andre was in his prime. In Andre's time, wrestlers were not expected to do lots of moves. Andre was trained in the mid-60s and Wight was train in the mid 90s; big difference. I'm certain you've never met Hogan or Andre, so you are in no position to judge them. Nobody should be judged on their worst moments. We've all said and done things that we regret.

Here is Andre in his early to mid 20s (about the same age Wight was when he started wrestling):

Andre looks leaner and fitter than Show ever did.

Here's Andre in the late 70s (early 30s):

He looks to have less body fat than Big Show had in the late 90s. Big Show was 27 in 1999.

If watch Wrestlemania 2 Battle Royal at from 5m 36 mark you see Andre walk past Ed 'Too Tall' Jones who was 6'10. Andre was in front of Ed, and he appeared roughly the same height. Andre couldn't have been more than 6'11 in 1986 before his back surgery. The link is here:

Andre was taller by a few inches than Ed Too Tall Jones.

Jordan87 no reason to make fun of me for my age. I'm getting on in years and pick fights with people to compensate for my lack of self confidence. I wanted to be an actor so bad but all I ever got were a few Extra parts and a few roles in Richard O'Sullivan movies and those were straight to home video. Literally. He films them with a Sony VHS home video camera. You know he has to deliver pizzas to make ends​ meet? And pimp his mom out. Anyway I need to go ban somebody for making me look bad but I got the last laugh, I found his profile on Facebook and then found a picture of his mom and bukaked my monitor.

Size 17 (US) is not large for a 7 foot bloke.

Andre and Chief Jay Strongbow, who was around Bruno’s height. Click Here

Click Here Andre was never any taller next to Vince in wrestling gear so I’m probably being generous to him here. Both are similarly proportioned and with probably comparable boot sizes.

Dan Chernua,

I don't need glasses however I'm sure at your advanced age you likely have your share of Specs though.

Just stick to your mods for wrestling classic and spamming peoples email addresses. I am tired of washing you up here ( You are old and washed up already), its clear you didn't need it but I enjoyed it, I'm not gonna lie ;)
mrtguy said on 15/Mar/17
@HeightcrazyRed6ft, as always as you rebuttal, why don't you show a video or send a link of Big Show claiming size 17?? then I or even the majority of the people would believe you, but instead of saying Big Show claimed 17 without evidence just words don't prove or show anything but if you think that's Big Show's real size than you maybe WRONG and my opinion.
