How tall is Big Show

Big Show's Height

6ft 10.5in (210 cm)

Peak height was 7ft 0in (213 cm)
American wrestler Paul Wight. He has said "I'm 7 foot and Andre was about 7ft 1, 7ft 2" and when somebody claimed he was 6ft 7 and 325 pounds - he retorted with his real weight: "Actually I am seven feet tall. I weigh 452 pounds". He also claimed to have "Always been a little over 7 feet tall".

I do not know exact Baba's peak height,However the size of the figure is 209 cm.It shows billed height of Baba in Japan.
I compared not Baba and Big Show but Baba's 209cm figure and big show.
-------------------

That comparison has a 2005 big show at max 201cm

I met wight out of gear in 2005 and he was taller than that..

They obviously exaggerated Baba's height and size in that figure. He was several inches shorter than 6'11" max Andre in the late 80s and was the same height as 6'8" Tyler Mane in 1990. Baba was in the 6'8" range in his prime and Big Show was a solid 6'11" guy and possibly 7' in his prime. Akebono is 6'7"-6'8" himself and would only be a little shorter than Baba.

JT I already modified my estimation for Big Cass @ 6 8 1/2 (204 cm).
The point is that footwear has big influence on the height of these guys. In my opinion Big Show normally wears boots who can lift him by 2 inches. As a matter of fact when he wears dress shoes or sneakers he is definitely shorter! Same for Shaq O' Neal. I am not changing my mind on Show height (207 cm) and I agree on Shaq height (213 cm as he is shorter than Jabbar by 4 cm today. Kareem is no more than 217 as we was 218 when he was young). Of course my estimations consider an average height of whole day (for Guinness World Record measurement the rule is to take three measurement during the day - morning, afternoon, evening - and then calculate the average height).
Relevant Undertaker he is shorter than Strowman who is a couple of inches shorter than Big Cass (199 cm). My guess for Taker is therefore197 cm. Kane is in between the two (198 cm). When he's next to Taker there is a very small difference (half inch).

He was 570-590lbs at his heaviest.
Si said on 10/Jan/17
I remember reading something years ago about how Big Show in 2006 purposely gained weight in the build up to the Lashley match because he wanted to be his biggest ever. I think he'd been steadily creeping over 510-520 but ate his way over 550 lbs at the end of 2006 and Lashley could barely lift him. He wanted to be huge like Andre I heard, by the look of him he was too
Mark said on 9/Jan/17
Please take a look at the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 32. Shaq is way taller than Show and Kane. If Shaq is 7 ft then Kane can't be more than 6 ft 6 (198 cm) and Show can't be taller than 6 ft 9 1/2 (207 cm)...I can say 6 ft 8.25 for Big Cass (204 cm) since he's variously listed at 6 ft 8 or 6 ft 9 and have double-checked his footwear...but can't change my mind for Kane and Show... Talking about tall wrestlers Braun Strawman is 6ft 6 1/2 (199 cm) to me, slightly taller than Taker (197 cm).

Big shows way taller than Big Cass who's 6'9 (according to the man himself) and also Kane is well over 6'6. look at him next to Corbin who measured 6'6.5 in the NFL and he's at least an inch taller



Cass is 6'8'' he was listed that height in basketball, the only reason he could pass as taller is with that small head

I put Nash one inch taller than Mane, keep in mind Mane had footwearadvantage over old Andre and Nash, Big Show has the biggest sole of them all and is standing as straight as it gets...

Andre and Paul were pretty even regarding their peak evening height, both between 6ft11 - 6ft11.5in

I found this footage of Big Show and Nash together at the end of WW3 in 1996:
Click Here

It is very interesting. Both were in ring gear, and there are times when Show only looked 1" taller. There are times when he looked 3" taller. We know Nash was no more than 6'9" because of how he stacked up next to 6'8 range Tyler Mane. One thing I can say is this should completely destroy the people who think peak Paul Wight was like 2-3" taller than a peak Andre. Andre in 1990 stacked up as good next to Tyler Mane than a peak Paul Wight did next to Nash. Once again, we know that Nash and Mane were virtually the same height.

Heightcrazyred, you should make some screencaps from this footage. Maybe compare it with Andre and Mane. Based on everything I've seen, I would go with 6'11.5" prime and 6'10.5" now. Just the same as Andre.

Didn't Kevin Nash and Reis (forget his first name) accuse him of wearing lifts during WCW? Idk about that but it's certainly interesting.
He was listed as "7'1 and 325 pounds" in his college basketball profile. I'd give him that in his prime. I'd like to believe that he's still a legit 7'0 nowadays but he probably is just a bit under.
I don't agree with people claiming he's 6'9 and under.

I think Big Show was pushing 550 back in 2005-06. Towards the end of Ecw run he was getting so huge he barely fit in his black singlet. I always thought he looked more of a giant when he was BIG, I liked the monstrously sized Show but was not good for health reasons to be that big obviously




Yeah, I agree with you Big Show definitely looked heavier than Big Daddy V for sure, his arms looked unreal Click Here
George MacAree's chest was 76''Click Here and he is short. I reckon Big Show's chest had to be 80 inches especially with his width and acromegalic build. Big Show was probably around 555-570 Pounds at his heaviest if you seen his match with Lashely it just says it all

Holly Hell at the vid of Nash being taller than show. "Forced perspective"? Why would they TRY to make Nash look taller than their GIANT? Is this why Nash always said he was the one true giant??? Yeah... show wore platforms as Nash has stated in an interview. Nash never wore those and he was close to shows height so show without lifts, is possibly shorter..
RP said on 15/Dec/16
DickSock! Pro wrestling has a history of sticking guys at their designated billed weights, even if they lose a bunch of weight...or gain in some cases such as Adrian Adonis. Big Show had been down to 415-420 lbs for several months, but...WWE was still billing him @ 450 lbs & 441 lbs! Back several years ago when he got huge & gained massive weight & was in the 470-500 lbs range, WWE were billing him @ 475/485, sometimes 500! They Kept him at those billings for over a year after he dropped back down to 440-450. Was just saying it was refreshing to see them actually announce someone at the true legit current weight. They've only done that a handful of times over the 30-40 years. Especially when they want to portray a 7'0" & 450 lbs giant... Like I said, it was refreshing to see, since they had still been billing him at 450 & 441 for months,...when he was actually 420-ish. Just like with Andre who was legitimately 500 lbs to 520 lbs in 1986-early 1988...however, in late 1988/early 1989 Andre had briefly dropped back down to 470-480 lbs...but, was still being billed @ 520 lbs. So, yes ...a lot of times pro wrestlers true weights are a "secret"...just like there true heights. Even Big Show laughed his ass off at the thought of WCW billing him @ 7'4" back in the 1990's!

Show is 207 cm tall (6ft 9.5in). If you take a look at him next to Randy Orton in recent pics he's roughly 13 taller than him. I met Randy a few years ago. He's 194 cm tall (6ft 4.5 in).
Moreover at a recent show Shaq was clearly taller than him. If you consider that Shaq is 213 cm tall (7ft) Show can't be taller than 207 cm. He lost height throughout the years due to weight and wrestling matches...He was 211 cm tall (6ft 11in) at his peak. Rob what is your opinion? Thanks

If you actually look at what they are wearing in the ring, Big Show does not have a footwear advantage.


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



You can say Big Shows sole is at least, what he gets in height.

You can NOT say how much Shaqs shoes add really, its design outside, not the height the shoes are inside.


We know they were both in dress shoes Click Here at the red carpet,
we know the gap Click Here was more than in ring...
so that´s a big point to Show having footwear advantage in ring...

If you actually look at what they are wearing in the ring, Big Show does not have a footwear advantage. They've never looked as far apart in the ring as they did on the red carpet, so my only conclusion is big show was slouching heavily which he tends to do given his weight, and which people can do in tight suits.

Comparisons with Shaq need to be taken with a grain of salt when Shaq wears basketball shoes. His basketball shoes are the biggest I've ever seen, he has to be getting 2-3 inches from them.

Slon said on 30/Nov/16
Rob, at any rate Big Show and Brahim Takioullah's head length are similar the reason Brahim's head can give longer impression is because his head is thinner and has a very thin physique. Big Show on the other hand, has a chest as wide as 70'' and is very bulky guy so in pictures it will obviously will not look massive, but in person you'd be surprised how HUGE Big Show's head is.

No I haven't. I believe he had some knee surgery in the past, but certainly no neck surgery, back surgery or a hip replacements. Those surgeries would've sidelined him for a number of months (neck surgery even close to a year). The only time Big Show ever took that amount of time from wrestling was in 2007. And he didn't have any surgeries during those months.

Big Show had around 3 inches on Nash in comparable footwear back in the early 2000s. Click Here Big Show has lost height but most is probably posture-related. There's a good deal of whiplash head movement in wrestling so he may have developed some osteoarthritis and resulting kyphosis in his neck.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

osteoarthritis and resulting kyphosis in his neck??
That counts double or triple for Andre, you can´t have it both ways.



Big Show with his biggest WCW-boots had never more than 3inches on Nash, if that.
So how can he be 3inches taller in comparable footwear?
Big Show was max 2inches taller than Nash, both barefoot.

If it was Andre you would´ve said he lifts a foot up and gains height in your pic.



Big Show has lost height, I agree

Big Show was 2,11m /6´11" barefoot and in WCW gear 2,15m-2,16m.

The App sounds good regarding the gap.

JT said on 21/Nov/16
Big Show had around 3 inches on Nash in comparable footwear back in the early 2000s. Click Here Big Show has lost height but most is probably posture-related. There's a good deal of whiplash head movement in wrestling so he may have developed some osteoarthritis and resulting kyphosis in his neck.

Those stock exchange pics are showing Paul is now only 6'10" barefoot

It's crazy considering how much height Big Show had on Kevin Nash (who I believe was 6'10" at the time in the WCW in the mid-late 90's. Hogan at that time was same height as 6'5" Scott Hall and Ted Dibiase was 6'3". He also TOWERED over minimum 6'7" Lochness.

Big Show was a legit 7'0.5" (could pull off a full 7'1") guy back then (he was listed as 7'1" in college basketball). His neck was very long (today he had no neck due to neck surgery). His upper torso was longer back then (he's had back surgeries). His legs were longer then too (he's had hip replacement surgery as well).

Kane to me looks more than 14cm taller than Miz in this photo Click Here
miko said on 18/Nov/16
Just remember though, lets say Show is a flat 6'10 these days, which isn't impossible of course, it would in turn affect other wrestlers heights adversely.

Kane would be pushed down to 6'6 range for starters. Khali would be barely over 6'11, Show was around 1 inch shorter than him in most staredowns 5 years ago, and most would say that he always looked 7'1 range.

I still believe that in maximum posture he is closer to 6'11 than 6'10, he always manages to squeeze out extra height in staredowns if he is nose to nose with somebody and giving it everything, like he did with Khali, and Shaq a few years ago. In normal posture/slouching he can look a lot shorter.

Someone mentioned him being 6'9 on this site recently, now that is a joke.

Hard to gauge his height given footwear and the fact that it appears he slouches a lot(400+ pounds will do that).

In his youth probably 7 foot. Nowadays anywhere from 6-10 to 6-11.

Big Show looks ~9cm taller than Kane - Show is a bit closer to the camera,
Kane looks max 14cm-15cm taller than the Miz.

If Big Show is 6ft10 flat, Kane is 6ft6.25in and Miz 6ft0.25in - sounds pretty legit

Editor Rob: I think it is probably fair to say it looked a good 2 inches, whether Show is only 6ft 10 or Shaq is a bit over 7ft is harder to say.

Angle in his peak, swagger, ziggler would have done well in mma most likely..undertaker, Kane, nash, rock and austin not so much







I agree with Big Show bad in MMA, most none or low steroid guys would... without roids Lesnar wouldn´t do much either. Same goes for Nash and Austin and Rock.
Kane is imo most part a natural strongman, he could do some good submission holds.

We have been commenting on that video for months now. I don't where you're getting 6'11.75" for Shaq when he is 7'2" in sneakers. Shaq is 7'1" and Show is about 6'10.5" and was never above 7'. 6'8" is absurd for Big Show. He is still about 4" taller than 6'6" minimum Kane.

I posted something similar on the Andre page:

I've been seeing the Shaq photo floating around celebheights (credit to whomever posted it first). I was actually just at Ripley's last weekend. Here is a photo of myself in sneakers next to the height ruler: Click Here and myself barefoot next to the height ruler: Click Here and here is Shaq next to the height ruler: Click Here

My photos were taken around 11:30am. I believe barefoot I'm about 5'10.25" and in my sneakers somewhere around 5'11.5"-5'11.75" (I may appear a bit taller but it's because of my hair. If you look closely you can see the top of my scalp LOL)

I propose anyone here who is good at photoshop to use these pictures to help with debating Big Show's height. It looks like there's a 2" difference between Shaq and Show here, right? Click Here anyone good at photoshop want to superimpose Big Show against the height ruler and match it up with photos with guys that are around 5'10"-6'?

I'd recommend using my barefoot photo (where I'm a little over 5'10") cuz I think it's a better angle.

I'm not good at photoshop so I don't know how feasible this is with camera angles and everything, but I figured it'd be worth a shot to ask.

Great find. So Shaq is about 7'2" in what we can assume are sneakers. That would put him at about 7'1" barefoot or maybe a tad under. Shaq needs an upgrade to 7'1" in my opinion and Show should stay right were he is at 6'10.5".

In that photo Donald Trump looks to be at least an inch taller than Piers. Actually, to me Trump looks to be about 1.5" taller than Piers.

Even when Trump is standing further from the camera and the camera tilt favors Piers, Trump still comes out taller.

Okay, you people can just stop this nonsense. There is no need to speculate. The facts are that Show is and always has been right around 7 feet tall. Shaq is around 7'1.5". Big Cass is 6'11" or close to it. Kane and Kevin Nash are both around 6'10" and Undertaker is 6'9". Rob doesn't know what he's talking about and neither do any of you others trying to undersize everyone. I tell you the facts.

Kane 6'10''! lol is that with or without the 2'' soled boots?

When you make bold statements like that, you better be able to prove it. But instead you resort to your usual name-calling. No surprises there!
********************************************


no, if you disagree, prove me wrong or otherwise prove that I´m usual a namecaller like in this bold statement.

You made the offense early in your post, so don´t bitch around for another spank :))
I mean I didn´t list you under the Andre peak 6´10"/ Big Show easy 7ft bashers.
So back to evidence...

The most part of your post now, fits much more with what I proved.

Shaq had 2" on Big Show in ring both standing straight.
Shaq had 2.5" on Big Show out of ring gear ( saying 3" or more like it looked it´s due to camera angle and Big Show having less posture),
both in dressshoes side by side and Big Show stretched out (watch the vid), Big Show has the cameraangle-advantage so lines wouldn´t tell the truth here,
look where Big Shos eyeline is next to Shaq, that is easy a 2.5" gap between them,

so why believing in JT´s wrong agenda, trying to say their footwear was equal in ring,
when it´s easy to understand that Big Shows heel is the same height inside as outside and Shaq´s basketballshoe is inside lower than the outside design.
Chaz said on 14/Aug/16
dicksock said on 13/Aug/16 I like you Danimal, but exactly how long was Show over 500lbs? I would say from 2005-2006. For most of his career, he has been between about 350lbs-440lbs. Additionally, I am not familiar with any back, neck, or hip surgeries he has had. My guess would be that he was nearly 7' (maybe 6'11.5") and wore platform boots that made him about 7'1" in his prime. Now he is probably about 6'10.5". I think this site underestimates Shaq's height. I think he is still around 7'1" legit and at least 7'0.5". He looks way too tall next to The Rock, Charles Barkley, and John Jones to just be 7'0".
Click Here

Your right he's top weight he said was about 487lbs and that was for only a year or so, and the 7'1'' was in he's boots and the big trainners they wear .and this flat 7' for Shaq is rubbish the 7'08" is more the truth.if not everyone needs a downgrade you can't keep listing Hogan at 6'6'' and Andre at 7'.no way was Andre Shaq's height.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16
It doesn´t change anything for Big Show b/c I was comparing his heel to his height, Shaq has his back not stretched out in your pic, watch the vid and see how he gains height stretching out.
Shaq’s back is about as stretched out as Big Show’s. Click Here
The only difference is Shaq is tilting his head a little bit more forward.
This is about the tallest Shaq stood in that match vs. the tallest Big Show stood.
Click Here
Big Show gains ~ ¼ of an inch and Shaq ~ ½ of an inch. Again, at best there’s a 2 inch difference between them.
*************************************************
I talk about nearly half inch advantage for Big Show, wich he easy has and you freak out??? Biased? Whats with this Click Here

Yes half an inch ain’t much, but you’re pretty determined of knocking off that extra ½ inch of Big Show.
*************************************************
You can’t say the same thing for those red carpet videos.
You can´t say otherwise...
There are different vids out there, they walk from one interview to another, I posted they are both in dress shoes... get your facts right. Click Here

I was talking of posture and camera angles, not footwear. I’ve seen the vids that are out there. Here are a few examples of camera shots during those interviews:

The camera angles are all over the place and some of them make Big Show look well over 3 inches shorter than Shaq. No way did he look this short next to Shaq at Wrestlemania.
*************************************************
And when did the WWE ever claim Big Show was nearly 7ft tall. Never once did I hear them claim this. I challenge you to post proof of this claim.
So you´re not Mr. Knowitall about Andre and Big Show, he was often announced at "standing nearly 7 feet tall" You can challenge your claiming arse and get your fact right before supporting your JT friend again.

When you make bold statements like that, you better be able to prove it. But instead you resort to your usual name-calling. No surprises there!

corrected the tilt using the wall behind Andre. Andre is clearly edging Wilt looking at the top of their heads, Wilts neck is straight while Andre for sure could stretch a bit out.
So all storys and faked comparisons about Wilt being taller than cowboybootet Andre are out of the window.

Andre standing straight was no less than 2,18m in cowboyboots, look at Arnie next to him....

So the minimum inf ootwear height there is

Wilt 2,17m
Andre 2,18m
Arnie 1,88m

so barefootheight:

Wilt 2,15m
Andre 2,12m
Arnie 1,86m

To those playing a revisionist of history with Big Show's PEAK height, I need to intervene. He was indeed significantly taller in the mid-late 90's. He was at least 7'0.5", if not a full 7'1".
*************************************************
So the heightloss-fetishist needs to intervene...
It´s proved he wasn´t even full 7´1" in giant soled boots, so unless you talk about measuring straight out of bed, 7´0.5"-7´1" is fanboyhype garbage as they tried hard to make him look as tall as possible in WCW.

Nash was 6´9" evening, 6´10" in normal wrestlingboots, Big Show in giant soled boots had 2.5" on him.
Big Show was 6´11" peak and is 6´10" today.
Agreed same heightloss as Andre.

Hogan, Piper are heavier stories regarding their health, especially Piper who lost about 4" due to removed spineparts b/c of cancer

Does anybody see less than 11" between Rock and Shaq? I mean let's get serious. Shaq looks to have about a foot on the bare minimum 6'2" Rock. So what is going on? At the risk of sounding dumb, maybe Shaq grew. I just can't see the Rock as less than around 6'3" because he is still taller than Roman Reins. Yet, can anyone dispute the fact that Shaq looks around 1' taller than him?

Rob, I would love to read your thoughts on the Shaq/Barkley/Rock picture I posted. Surely it contradicts the listings on your site by far.

Today he's floating around that 6'10" mark imo. In other words, he's followed in the footsteps of his hero (Andre the Giant).

Rob, how can Big Show go from looking 7'1'' in his prime to this listed height?? I'd appreciate if you answer this
**********************************************************************************************************************************

Why not watch all the evidence posted here during the last week.
He was not 7´1" legit, not even 7´1" in his big soled boots.

Big soled boots proved. fact
having 6" on 6´5"-6´5.75" John Tenta. Big Show with Big boots so 5-5.25" barefoot. fact
having 4.5-5 on 6´6-6´6.5" Haystacks without his giant footwearadvantage. fact
Looked barefoot ~ 6´11" with Akebono who was meaured 6´8 1/3" as a young sumo - wich for sure was early in the day

Compared to straight 1987 Andre
Click Here



So proof he was 7´1" prime without help of Big Big Boots if you want to argue that.
Imo he was a tad or two taller than 7ftpeak, measured within 1hour out of bed and 6´11"-6´11.25" evening.
Since I estimate based on Robs idea of claiming eveningheight, I would list him 6´11.25" peak.
I would classify him as a very weak 7footer, but rather a solid/strong 6´11" guy wich fits better if you see him next to solid 7 Footers.

_________

I'm not Rob, but I try to give you a reasonable answer. Big Show never really did look 7'1" to begin with. Even on his debut, he was shorter than the 7'1" listed Ron Reis (the Yeti). He may have been about 6'11.5" barefoot, but wore big heeled boots that were comparable to cowboy boots in terms of the boost they gave him. This, along with his lean physique and big hair, created the illusion he was taller than he was. Today, after decades of carrying around so much weight, he has lost about 1" of height. The evidence for this is his numerous recent encounters with ~7'0.5" Shaq where he looked 2"-3" shorter on a consistent basis. He may have been close to 7' in his prime but is now in the 6'10" range. His 7'1" listing in college was probably just his height in big basketball sneakers and possibly a roundup from that.

Just a note: Adam Scherr has been officially measured @ 6'7-1/2" barefoot before! Fact! Know the man personally ...have worked out with him & The Silverback Crew in The Charlotte-Mooresville, NC area ! Dude is also a legit 365-385 lbs !!! Depending on his training & diet! He was home on a break back around July 4th - 8th...saw him weigh in @ 377 lbs wearing only socks, shorts & tank top! Adam: 6'7.5"
Paul: 6'10.75 to 6'11"

Big Show with at least 4.5 inches over Strowman...

Click Here

Strowman wears solid 1.5' boots from what I've seen so no advantage to anybody in the footwear department. Show at 6'10.5 would equal a 6'6 flat Strowman and I can't buy him being that short.

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

4.5" noway, you´re right wit the footwear, but putting Big Shows head at a tad more than 12" it´s a 3.25" gap at best. 6´10.5" Big Show = 6´7.25" Strowman

6´10.5" is pretty fair for Big Show as he looked 6´10"flat next to Shaq with both in dressshoes.


Click Here

Big Show is closer to 6´10"flat than 6´10.5" evening today.
Imo 6´7.25" is a tad or two to high for Strowman, he looks more a weak 6´7"/ 6´6.75 outside the ring Click Here

Personally I think he looked more 6'11.5 up against Kevin Nash in wcw

Hmmm, another interesting down grade, but i do find this within the correct range for him, he would still wake up near 7 foot in the morning and would dip just below 6"11 at night time.

Don´t come with excuses that Shaq gains height from position in the ring because Kane is further back than Shaq and comes out to Big Show how he should.
If Shaq has the claimed 1" advantage Kane would have 2" advantage being further back so stop with excuses.

Here’s a better shot, where the feet are aligned and both have good posture.

Here the difference is less than 2 inches. Both men have good posture and Big Show’s footwear advantage is nowhere near as large as you make it out to be. Big Show still looks 6’11” there.
And that’s a full body shot, where we can see their posture and where the camera angle isn’t favouring either man. You can’t say the same thing for those red carpet videos.
*****************************************


so Big Show Lover,

why not talking about the high camera angle reducing the gap??? here is a head level shot with Big Show straight and clearly 2"+ Click Here

Here´s their footwear from the red carpet, both in derssshoes Click Here
both man standing straight and clearly 2.5" + , for sure you´re not talking about Show being closer to the camera,
but find excuses for Shaq on higher ground - lol

there´re a few different vids, they walk from one interview to the next and the gap is always 2.5"-3".


I pegged Big Shows footwear advantage in ring at 0.4"-0.5" wich he has and wich fits with the red carpet pic with both in equal footwear.

Fact1 Shaq in ring with 0.4-0.5" less footwear ~2.25" taller
Fact2 Shaq red carpet in equal footwear ~2.5-2.75" taller

Khali is obvious taller than Shaq in the pic that you post.



No, Khali is shorter, his head is lower and therefore closer to the camera wich gives Shaq a visual disadvantage, Shaq is clearly the taller man there if the camera goes higher.


Andre was 2,11m peak evening imo same as peak Big Show.
Khali 2,13-2,14m during his first WWE years, maybe taller as a young bodybuilder... Never had a full 6 inches on Taker more 5-5.5"
Shaq 2,15m doubt he lost height...
Aza said on 8/Aug/16
At his most erect first thing in the morning I can believe 7' peak.
Chaz said on 8/Aug/16
the truble with all this is you are showing most wrestlers in the Evening,and men of this height or weight are going to be at least 1 each shorter,than the morning,and the only good comparason on this page is the Haystacks Big show,and the Tenta Big Show,and all you can tell from that is Haystacks is taller than Tenta because he comes higher up the nose even with thiner shoes,

So unless you can find Tenta and Andre in the same upright stand off,it's all if's and buts.

I think Big Show peak was 7' morning 6'11'' evening,so he should be listed here as 6'11.5'', Andre was 6'11'' morning 6'10'' Evening,so should be listed as 6'10.5''. IMO
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16
Chaz said on 8/Aug/16
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 7/Aug/16 Nice comparison, peak Big Show has Tenta by 6 inches minus ~0.75" footwearadvantage. Tenta needs to be still 6´5.75" to make Big Show 6´11" flat barefoot

So Big Show has a 9.5" face now? your nere 2" out

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

Yeah and Big Show comes out 9ft tall if I put his big time raised head to 12" ......

The scale doesn´t lie there, Big Show is losing easy 2" headlength by titlting his head that much to raise his chin and eyeline - clearly nothing wrong there.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16

And no, I´m not saying Andre is 2" taller than Big Show but for sure Big Show isn´t taller than Andre.

The middle pic Big Show has about 1" position disadvantage to the high camera, no more so.
Upper right has the real gap between Shaq and Show there, Shaq easy has 1"-1.25" in dressshoes on a cowboybooted Big Show.



So how can anyone believe Andre was 6´10" flat and Big Show 7ft legit?????????????????????????
