WWE is ridiculously trying to sell Cass at 7' along Show when in the reality he is a good 2inches shorter and neither of them are this mark.The keyfabe factor ruins the industry at same time builds up.

OMG, look at this wwe article.... lmao

Big cass, kane and Big show both listed equally at 7 foot in the rankings of tallest wrestlers , when even a 2 years old kid would have noticed that kane and cass are at least 3 in shorter than big show.
As I stated before, wwe is ridicolus with heights.

@ Sandy Cowell

Cracking comment! That was a real ROFL (two translations) but laughing with you of course!

Why do so many men overplay their height and weight? Am I missing something? - That question is for anyone!

I think that Big Show is a little bit under 6'10.5", but like you said he was never 7'0"!

Cheers Sandy!

Yes they never really seem to think these things through. Both men billed as 7 feet but Show is clearly taller. Nonsense.
Jordan87 said on 12/Jul/17
Ma,

Agreed. WWE heights are utter Horsh!t. 7'0 is ridiculous for Big Cas. He is a good athlete however. I mean he has the build of the Undertaker early on in his career whereas Big Show, Strowman, Even Kane are naturally not as Fast, but thicker and stronger.
miko said on 12/Jul/17
Show looked around 6'10.75 with Cass IMO. His posture has vastly improved with his weight loss.

All this 6'8/6'9 talk from a few select people on here has been put to bed with his staredowns with 6'8.5 Cass and 6'7 Strowman.
A Man said on 12/Jul/17
Yep Show looks to have 2 inches there, maybe 1.75" but no less.

Looks like a 6,8" guy looking at a 6,10" guy to me.
ma said on 12/Jul/17
lol Big Cass last night claimed 7 feet...And then a big man, listed here as 6 ft 10.5, arrived in the ring and he was taller by 2.5 in...
I don't know why WWE wants make Cass as 7 foot when he was always listed at 6 ft 10 during NXT.
The only way he looks a legitimate 7 ft is with the other fake billing of Kane (7 foot); I don't know why at this point they don't overbill also big Show by 4 in. They are ridicoulus with heights

@Editor Rob

Doesn't a young Big Show show significant signs of acromegaly then compared to now, if so Rob you think it's weight gain that made him look proportional in the years??

Click Here
Click Here
Editor Rob: yes the weight gain maybe helped his overall look as it's not as obvious because he's nearly 7ft...he was 19 when he had pituitary surgery I believe, if he didn't the acromegaly would have caused more bone protrusion.

Big Show looked max 6cm taller than Big Cass this monday at raw, both in equal footwear.

Cass always looked a weak 6´8" / 203cm to me, so Big Show is more like 209cm/ 6´10.25" max today

Why do these bit guys always seem to plump for the same type of girl?

Mind you, even a girl of 6ft would look petite next to him! I don't know Kelly's height, but she looks tiny next to Powerhouse Paul, who I reckon is 6ft10.5. I don't see him as ever having been a full 7ft. I think his peak was just a wee bit under - 6ft11.75, but probably a comfortable rolling-out-of-bed height for him I think WOULD have been 7ft!

I don't much like the idea of being one of his faithful little pets asleep next to him by his bed, only to find I'm on the receiving end of a drowsy, drunken Paul, falling splat out of bed after a night on the tiles...

Rob, any chance Big Show was under 7'0" at peak? A lot of comments here believe he was. When he was in WCW 95-99 and early on in WWE, looked 7'0" easily, even with less footwear.

DDP WAS 6FT4!When Rob met him he sad he looked atleast 6ft3.5, Rob is pretty good at guessing height, and he only reached DDP's mouth that would make him 6ft4.
But even if DDP was only 6ft3(which he wasn't) that would still make show look atleast 6ft11.5 because his head is longer than average.
Jordan87 said on 26/Jun/17
Hunt,
DDP's picture with Rob has him at 6'2.75, Not 6'4. Look at the picture again, DDP is not 6'4. So Recalculate what you Are talking about between DDP and BIg Show.

DDP reaches his mouth that is an 8 inch difference but shows head is longer than normal so he can look close to 7ft1 there.

Rob is Kelly Kelly tippy toeing in that picture because if she is than big show is taller than 6 foot 9 but if she is not tippy toeing than big show is 6 foot 9
Editor Rob: I don't think so, just one leg planted and the other more on it's toe so it bends a bit at the knee.
I think she is standing normally.
dicksock said on 12/Jun/17
Based on what I've seen here, I think Strowman is 6'6.5-6'7", Cass is 6'8", and Big Show is 6'10.5"-6'11".

In all photos so far of Cass/Show together outside the ring, Show has looked anywhere from 2 to 3 inches taller than him. None have been particularly great in terms of them standing right next to each other but Show is clearly taller.

Cass seems to be 6'8.5 range barefoot as he had close to a couple of inches on 6'7 Strowman not so long ago:

Click Here - Strowman/Cass

Click Here - Strowman/Show

Click Here - Cass/Big Show

Show in a full posture staredown would likely have a little over 2 inches on Cass, it all depends on how he stands when it eventually happens.

At least 2.5 maybe 3 inches

@ Jrv, yep I agree. The camera doesn't help but at certain points during the video you can make a case for either man being the taller.

More evidence that Show is probably struggling for 6,10"

He is 7,0 maybe 7,1
Standing next to Shaq he looks 6,10.5
But standing next to The Great Khali he looks 7,0 so my guess is 6,11-7,0
In SVR 2009 they make Khali look 7,4 and Big show look 7,0 here are the height in SVR 2009
Big Show 6,11-7,0 Great Khali 7,4 Kane 6,9 Undertaker 6,10 Big Daddy V 6,5 Umaga 6,4 Here are there real heights
Big Show 7,0 Great Khali 7,1 Kane 6,8 Undertaker 6,8 Big Daddy V 6,7 Umaga 6,3
Here is a List I made of some of the tallest men in WWE 10. Giant Baba 6,10 9. Andre the Giant 6,11 8. Big Show 7,0 7. Great Khali 7,1 6. Giant Silva 7,2
5. Raja Lion 7,2 4. Gargantua 7,3 3. John Harris 7,3 2. Paul Bunyan 7,7 1. Giant Gonzalez 7,7.5

@Editor Rob, This quote falls into the description of Big Show and are you considering adding to the wee box??

"The Giant, who was bigger than his 4'10" kindergarten teacher. And when The Giant graduated from Wyman King Academy (in South Carolina) in 1990, he was 7 foot 2, 320 pounds."

Editor Rob: the words out Big Show's are pretty much a maximum for him, a bit over 7ft is all he claimed.

not taller than 6'9
if this lady 5'5 with heel become 5'8 and hes shoe is one inch , and between them a feet and inch so he is really 6'9
Martin 6'2 said on 9/May/17
After seeing The Big Show (Paul White) standing next to Shaq, who is apparently 7'1" I'd say Big Show is about 6'10" maybe 6'10.5" there was a good 2.5 - 3 inches between them, because you have to take into account Big Shows wrestling boots, he usually has a good 2 inch sole like Kane does.
Tejender singh said on 9/May/17

When he and Shaw and he paired off Shaq was definitely taller.
mrtguy said on 6/May/17
Rob, do you ever think Big ever hit the 7'1.5'' mark out of bed at some point??
Editor Rob: with guys his size, there is definitely more potential to lose over an inch, maybe even near 2 inches because of the extra length in the spine compared to a mere 5ft 9 average height man.
a knaw knee moose said on 4/May/17
i think it's definitely reasonable he was a little over 7 foot cause the guy is just MASSIVE anyway so there was probably some compression going on

i wonder if he really alsways been 1/4 OVER 7 FEET AS HE SAYS but it sounds to mutch to me a guy lik shaq was atleast 1 inch taller. i think this guy was 6`11 and a half peak and in the morning little over 7

Wight being a flat 6'11 prime would throw a lot of things off. A shade under 7'0 is possible but under that I just can't see.

He did wear big boots in WCW, but lets be realistic the most advantage he'd be getting over a regular 1.25' wrestling boot would be half an inch to 0.75'? Anything over 2 inches is broken ankle territory, 2 inch boots were the kind of stuff Kane wore in the late 90's and they looked huge.

His boots today look a little smaller than say 15 years ago but it's not drastic. At a 7'0 prime he was likely 7'1.75 in his biggest WCW boots and at 6'10.75/6'11 today he's probably just over 7'0 in his boots today.

Poorer posture, lack of hair, smaller boots contribute to him looking a tad smaller than he did in the 90's, but him having 4+ inches on a 6'7 guy a few weeks ago (after 100lbs weight loss/improved posture) is something a alleged 6'8 guy (which yes is stupid) could not do in regular wrestling boots.
Slim said on 16/Apr/17
How about we figure out how tall an elevator door is? We seem him have to duck going in one right? pictures can't do justice bc we weren't actually there. My 6'6.5 friend doesn't look 6'6 in his pictures. Does that make him less than 6'6.5? No. Too many odd angle photos to think we KNOW his height. Also, you NEVER know if another people he's standing with are wearing hidden lifts. It's super common.
Backstage said on 13/Apr/17
Paul Wight - 6'10.25 (wore boots that made him 6'11.5 - 6'11.75 to claim 7 feet)
Nash - 6'8.5
Kane - 6'7.98 - Wore lifts that made him between 6'9 and 6'9.25

Wight wasn´t more than 6´11" evening, Nash wasn´t 6´10" barefoot as a wrestler.
Nash was barely 2" taller than 6´7" Undertaker and barely 1" taller than 6´8" Tyler Mane
Paul was barely 4" taller than 6´7" Undertaker

Paul was barefoot max 2" taller than Nash, with his giant Big Boots he could look 2.5"-3" taller...


Pauls "always been a little over 7ft" claim is either in shoes or early morning measurement...

I don't think Big Show's still under 6ft10.5 even today. Extremely tall guys like him cover up more height when they have loose posture compared to normal people. He doesn't have the best posture in the world, hence why he may appear sub-6ft10.
NCL said on 8/Apr/17
My best guess is for Big Show is probably 6'10" now and I'd say 7' or a little over at his peak.

The Shaq pictures have been a big source of debate here. Trying to narrow down Shaq's height I still think he's 7'1" based on all the pics that have been posted as of late of him in front of height rulers. The height rules put him at nearly 7'3", which makes sense if he wears basketball shoes that give him about a 2" boost.

Click Here
Click Here

I know he apparently said on Howard Stern that he was measured 6'11" or 6'11.5" and was told to exaggerate his height. I can't find that video anyone have a link?

He apparently entered the NBA when he was 20 years old, so it's possible he could have grown another inch or two. Click Here

This could explain the height difference between him and Wilt Chamberlain or that could be a footwear thing: Click Here anyone know what year this was?

Credit to Red78_01's photobucket I think this is pretty accurate: Click Here

Their footwear looks comparable, a 2" boost for each.
Ere said on 8/Apr/17
Just wondering if Big Cass is more 6'8, how tall does that make Aiden English? Here at 1:50 - 1:55 he looks a good 3.5 inches shorter like a weak 6'5. What do you guys say
Click Here
A Man said on 7/Apr/17
I defy anyone on here to show me a picture where Show ever looked a legitimate 7 feet tall.

If you accept that Taker and Kane were never any more than 6,7" and 6,7.5" respectively, then none of the staredowns they ever had with Show ever make him look more than 6,11".

Some further evidence; he looks no more than 6,10" opposite Strowman, who himself looked only a quarter inch shorter than 6,8" billed strongman Brian Shaw. And that is if you accept Brian Shaw is 6,8", which Celebheights own evidence does NOT support. Rob has Hafthor Bjornsson at 6,7.75", and Brian always comes out half to three quarters of an inch shorter than Thor in the multiple photos of them together.

And yet further; Show never looked more than 2" taller than Kevin Nash who Celebheights has at 6,9", but if you look at the photo of Nash with Rob you're going to have to have a pretty good imagination to see him stretching out to anything over 6,8.5".

I don't believe Paul Wight has ever been 7 feet. I think a 6,10.75"-6,11" peak in the 90s and today is barely scraping 6,10".
Strong 5ft9 said on 6/Apr/17
I think with his claim, it could mean he is a quarter or half inch over 7 feet. Also said something about his Acromegaly, he's a bit skeptical about being taller if it didn't get removed, but believes he would be more wacky looking if he still had it. Which i think might be the case.
Strong 5ft9 said on 6/Apr/17

Hey Rob, mind adding his claims in a Howard Stern interview back in 1999. Click Here. At 3:18 when Howard asked How tall he was when he was 12. Paul replied "6'2", 220 (pounds)". At 3:28, when asked how tall he is now. Paul replied "I'm a little over 7 foot, about 420 (pounds)". I think it is quite important to know, he still says the same thing 17 years later.
Editor Rob: the description kind of covers it, he's always been a little bit over 7ft.

Hey Rob, in a 1999 interview. Show claims "I'm a little over 7 foot, about 420 (pounds)" at 3:28. So even almost 20 years ago, he still says he is a little over 7 feet.

Looks 213 cm in his prime and 211 cm as his current height. Kane was maybe 3.5-4 inches shorter than Big Show's peak height and 1-2 cm taller than the Undertaker. The Undertaker is now probably 201 cm and Kane is 203 cm so maybe 2 cm lost from their peak heights. What say, Rob?

It's such a shame Show vs Shaq isn't happening at Wrestlemania now because there'd have definitely been some staredowns between the two. Would have been interesting to see how Show stacked up now he's lost some weight and can stand up straight again.

I reckon Big Show is about 6'10" nowadays. He's lost a lot of height but let's not get carried away.

Recent pic of Big Show next to Shaq. He's looking about 6'8"-6'9" these. He's had hip replacement (shortened femur) and has had back and neck surgery (fusion). In his PRIME (WCW days), he would have stood as tall Shaq (7'0"), if not having edged him out slightly (7'0.5"). He has lost tremendous height. Recent pic of them together from this year. Big Show is closer to the camera AND is wearing bigger heeled boots than Shaq. Claiming he is 6'10.5" next to MAX 7'0" Shaq is utterly ridiculous.

Rob, I think 6'10.75'' to 6'11.25'' seems more fair than just 6'10.5'', the problem is Big Show's very big head and wide figure fools people to give illusion he's shorter I still think he could measure 7 ft depending on his day lol

I think 207-208cm is big shows barefoot height nowadays

I agree. People (including Rob) is for some reason ignoring the interview between Shaq and Big Show from a few months ago, where Shaq is literally dwarfing him today. Back in the mid-late 90's, they would have been the EXACT same height, if not Big Show having the edge back then. Imo, he's lost a tremendous amount of height. He was 7'0.5"-7'1" in the 90's and is looking to like a flat 6'10" (even 6'9" and change) AT BEST today.
Slim said on 22/Feb/17
Philip McMullin oh now the story changes? You said you didn't have to look up now you're saying "all the way up" 6'4 compared to 6'9 is a HUGE difference. I garuantee you my 6'9" co worker Mark would tower your 6'4" body. Regardless of "broadness"

Slim ,

You asked how is 6'6" not a giant-like, as we were mentioning big cas . We were comparing Andre and show and how they were "giant" on a different level. Again, if you can't recognize show and andre's size as being in a different level then some typical 6'7" guy you have problems .

mrtguy,

Correct. Due to their Condition Big Show and Andre were unnaturally Big. If Big Cas is the next gen Giant that they are going to try to push then they are in trouble.

Strowman is one strong dude however. Not in the "Giant" Category, but as far as power, he is right up there with the best of them. We may very well never see a "Giant" again since the modern WWE Wrestlers seem to be getting smaller.

Don't even mention great Khali b/c he was the most uncoordinated, charisma lacking piece of sh!t the WWE has ever hired.
mrtguy said on 16/Feb/17
Comparing Big Show to Andre whether who is better, stronger and agile is getting irritating, both men or GIANTS should say have such natural feats of strength from the condition. In my opinion I don't think there is no one who you could think is more GIGANTIC than those two GIANT of men physically or imposing nowadays!
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Undertaker Frank,

I have yet to See Pics of Andre looking taller than Big Show next to Mean gene. ( Giant was in WCW he boots were thicker than Andress but not as Thick as they were in WWF/WWE).

Next to The same people Andre has not really looked taller than Big Show.

Im Not saying Show is alot taller than Andre. Maybe an Inch.

Big Sow Maintained a Much More Muscular frame, on top of being faster and More Agile. Andre's Accent killed alot of his Mic. Big Show is quite entertaining at times.
Undertaker Frank said on 15/Feb/17
Jordan i Believe Show was more Agile than Andre but Taller ?? Show wore Big heeled soles & Possibly lifts Andre wore wrestling boots with a .5 heel in the ring I believe they would be real close in height
Jordan87 said on 15/Feb/17
Prime for Prime Big Show was taller, Heavier, stronger, faster, and Better on the Mic Than Andre the Giant. As I have said on the Andre Boards, if Show was around the same time, he would have been by far the better Big Man.

After the weight lost recently Show's posture has certainly improved. He looked to be a good 6'10 with Strowman.

I don't believe Shaq is only 7' max. I think he's more like 7'1" and he's about 2/2.5" taller than Show. No way in the world is Show anything less than a solid 6'10". He looks too tall next to everyone else.

Plus at that time he already put on a lot of weight and started to shrink.
Sean said on 2/Feb/17
Should be interesting to see Show vs Shaq at this years wrestle mania. Show's posture looks to have improved since he has lost weight, so the staredown with Shaq and Show at WM could be telling. IMO the difference will still be max 2" (maybe 1.5") difference:
Big Show: 6'10.5" barefoot, 7'0" in wrestling boots
Shaq: 7'0.5" barefoot, 7'2" in his sneakers

When it comes to Big Show's peak height, especially when he debuted in WCW back in 1995, you can make the case he was legit 7'0" tall and perhaps a little over - 7'0.25"-7'0.5".

Now a days Show is around 380-400lbs and looks great. Strowman announced on instagram, after weeks of intense cardio, that he dropped 40lbs from 390. He's been about 350 or so pounds for most of last year and hoenstly he suits this look. Very menacing.

If Strowman is actually 385 pounds, Then the SHow is still over 400. He has the same build as Strowman and is at least 3" taller. Show says he is 370, Making Strowman about 350 in my book.

Khali is taller than show so I didn't need to include him. Nash Morgan and Jones were not closer in height to show than Kane was. As for the other guys you mentioned. Never heard of them or seen them. I've seen Morgan without his lifts with Nash. Nash is taller by far.

Khali, Morgan, jones, nash (in 2002 and 2011) all stacked up better next to wight. Cottonwood, Jackson andrews, giant titan were certainly taller than Kane and Tron the northern Irish nightmare who was under contract for a while is easily taller than Kane in person.

Strowman is 199 cm (6 6 0.25). In the last video with Show he's about 4 inches shorter than him (take a look at the end of the video...cameras can easily confuse your mind due to different camera angles ). Yet Show has definitely a footwear advantage which brings the difference down to 3 inches or so. Therefore I still believe Show is 6 9 1/2 (207 cm). Maybe as said 6 10 as peak height (208 cm) in the morning/early afternoon. I'm curious to see him again next to Shaq at WM. That will make it more clear....
James B said on 25/Jan/17
Rob although he does look over 6'10 perhaps though strowman would look much taller compared to showif he was not so heavy and stood as well as big show.

I'd imagine strowman walks around at 6'6 with all his extra weight and not perfect posture unlike show.

Strowman is back to normal soled footwear there and looks easy 4-4.5inches shorter, in bigger footwear it looked less than 3.5 in some matches.

Big Show has the footwearadvantage with his big soles in this staredown but I don´t see him under 6ft10.25in there.

I don't know what he's been doing in the gym, but he hasn't look this good since 1997. Where his posture was pretty awful in the last decade, it's near perfect nowadays.

Click Here
Nothing wrong with his posture here. He's tilting his head a bit backwards, creating the illusion that the gap between him and Strowman is a bit bigger than it really is. He also has a slight camera advantage. Although the difference between them is probably close to 5 inches, when adjusting Big Show's head and putting it in a similar position as Strowman's head. Big Show has a footwear advantage, but probably no more than 0,5 inch.

Click Here

If Big Show is now 370lbs, how much would you say Strowman is. Big Show still is noticeably bigger than Strowman. I'd say he could be about 50lbs heavier than Strowman, especially since Big Show's bone structure is much larger than Strowman's.

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.
Mark said on 17/Jan/17
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).

Rob, do you think Big Show deserves world record title for Biggest Feet/Shoes I heard it 22 1/2 10E and Sultan Kosen only wears size 21??

Do you think Big Show ever weighed 600 pounds?

No Way Taker even now is 6'5.5, He looked 1-2 cm taller than 6'6 Ali Baba from this site.

One question: Can anyone tell me how large his 18 EEEEE shoes are?
How does that compared to, say Shaq's 23 shoes?

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).

Cass looks somewhere in the 6'8/6'8.5 range, he had around 2 inches on Strowman.

As Vegas said Big Show looks noticeably taller than him, certainly 3 inch range.

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

Wight and Cass are not same height. They have tagged together and also been filmed/photographed out of gear and wight is noticeably taller

Not sure about in gear but barefoot Cass isn't taker than 6'8 looking at him next to guys in developmental who have verified nfl combine measurements

Current heights, some of them were taller in the past (Show, Kane, Undertaker) but due to age, weight and matches they lost height.

Big Show and Andre both have very gigantic head's for their height and relatively long torsos so that will do no good for looking taller

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

Great job on that. I think that is as good as it gets. It is clearly how they would all stack up next to each other.

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.

He looks about 6'11" there (assuming that guy is actually 5'11"). I would say he looks 7', but look at his footwear. His wrestling boots literally give him as much or more of a boost than Andre's cowboy boots gave him.

Kevin Nash has said big show wore "platforms" is nobody going to talk about how much shorter big show is than Shaq? Both are in dress shoes so there is no "wrestling magic" going on with footwear. Even shaqs son looks taller than big show.

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.

Big Show losing a bit of height these days, coming up to 45 years of age, he was once billed 7'3 back in the day of WCW, WWE had him 7'4 - 7'3 now 7 foot but he Looked a good 7 feet tall legit....but now 6'10. Same thing happened to Andre The Giant the height just drops off them as they get older.

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

Randy is said to be 193 cm tall on this website (in my opinion he's 194 cm tall) but anyway how can anyone say that Show is 16 or 17 cm taller than him?

Show is 207 cm (6ft 9.5 in) tall.
Slim said on 17/Dec/16
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

Big Show looked like he was 7'0 in that staredown. He looked really tall. His posture was better so he may have add an inch to his height.
