My dad is 5,8 and my uncle is about 6,3 and my uncle looks about as tall as Billy Gunn.

Jesus u guys, he's only 6'2"! He was hhh'S height back in 1999/2000
World Citizen said on 24/May/17
6 ft 3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/17
DDP and Gunn were both 193-194cm range at peak. Gunn might give shorter impression because he's much wider framed.
James B said on 5/May/17
Rob can I have you opinion on why he was only given 6'3?
Editor Rob: to piss him off?

I really don't I say I'd be a bit surprised at 6ft 3 flat.
James B said on 3/May/17
Rob perhaps Christian might have a point because why do you think Gunn had the 6'3 range listing? He must have been the only WWE wrestler in history to have his height downplayed.

Honestly I was surprised he was given 6'4 on this site because I didn't think he looked that big originally.
Editor Rob: Gunn in person is taller than many 6ft 3 guys to be fair.
I would be a bit surprised if he measured only 6ft 3.
Canson-194CM (6'4 3/8) said on 29/Apr/17
192cm peak
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 29/Apr/17
James B said on 22/Apr/17
No both gunn and DDP were genuine 6'4ers peak


They why else would Gunn be billed at 6'3"? If he was a full 6'4", he would've never had the 6'3" billing.
James B said on 22/Apr/17
No both gunn and DDP were genuine 6'4ers peak
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 21/Apr/17
Peak wise I think Gunn was the weaker 6ft4 compared to DDP.
bazza said on 27/Mar/17
6'3", 6'4" peak no more.just another WWE wrestler adding inches for effect.
James B said on 16/Mar/17
Well rampage he certainly did not look over 193cm compared to the rock but it's hard to tell because of posture
nelo said on 6/Mar/17
berta said on 13/Feb/17
to me this guy at peak looked taller than 193. he still looks like someone who is strong 193 guy. he is getting old and working in that industry. i think he was probably half inch taller than this at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/17
I'm not convinced he was quite 6ft5 but 6ft4-4½ range is arguable peak. Today still looks about 6ft4
berta said on 1/Feb/17
he is a wrestler wich make me think he was 194 peak and today at most 193
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/17
Solid 6ft4 guy peak...not as convinced he was 6ft5 though
Joe said on 15/Jan/17
Another man who lies about his height, he's no towering 6' 5"... lol
James B said on 21/Nov/16
Vegas - McIntyre did look around the size of other 6'5 wrestlers on TV such as jack swagger and wade garret didn't he?
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 16/Nov/16
Looks 6'3" here. Maybe he's losing a fraction in posture but apparently was in boots though, so he may have gained that fraction back there. Not sure what the lens height was, but he looks 6'3" here and was described as such by the WWE, so I think he's likely shy of a legit 6'4".
Vegas said on 14/Nov/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/16
@James B: McIntyre is 6ft5, that's why.

McIntyre is not 6'5 out of gear
Peter 179cm said on 21/Oct/16
He looks atlest 190 but not quite 192cm besides Big Rob.I'm guessing a solid 191cm for this guy so basically a fraction over 6'3.
Brandon said on 19/Oct/16
Was posture and footwear the same? Because if it is then i'm seeing 6'3.25", really 6'3" flat, never really looked at this guy anywhere else so based on the photo, user guess of 6'3.6" and listing of 6'4". I'm gonna guess 6'3.5".
Editor Rob: possibly he had a fraction less posture, but footwear...he had a boot (looked a bit like cat style), so a decent chance of a fraction more than me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/16
@James B: McIntyre is 6ft5, that's why. So 6ft4 is still ok for Gunn maybe a shade under at worst today. In the 90's him and DDP may have been just over it though
James B said on 14/Oct/16
Rob 6'4 1/2 for McIntyre?
Editor Rob: that might be possible...if he had a boot on then he could have looked taller and pulled off 6ft 5 that way.
James B said on 12/Oct/16
Rob how could drew McIntyre look at least 1 inch taller in person than billy gunn? Posture?
Editor Rob: his footwear could have been more, he definitely gave off a taller impression.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft3 flat today?
Editor Rob: unlikely, he is still over 6ft 3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/16
He comes in a fair amount below 6ft4 in the photo w/h Rob
kingkong56 said on 5/Oct/16
In pics I've seen of him next to the deadman and the beast (2 separate pics), he appears more 6'5 than 6'4.
Maybe, a peak height of 6'4.5 is worth a consideration.
The Ben said on 1/Oct/16
Always looked 6'4 to me.
James B said on 27/Sep/16
These days I don't think he would be 6ft5 out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/16
He's most likely near 6ft5 out of bed
Johno said on 11/Sep/16
Probably be 6'3.75-6'4 out of bed.
Johno said on 11/Sep/16
6'3.25 average.
Aza said on 9/Aug/16
Today he is 192....pretty damn close to his peak..
The Man said on 9/Aug/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/16
Stephanie looks only max 2" shorter than Shane when wearing high heels, which givers her about 3" footwear advantage. So no way Stephanie's 5ft7 and Shane 6ft2.
Please watch this video Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/16
Shane has a similar amount of height over Vince as Triple H does. I think he's gotta be nearer 6ft2 than 6ft. Also, Stephanie is more 5ft7 range than 5ft8.
The Man said on 5/Aug/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/16
Shane Mcmahon at 6ft2? Give me a break. Shane's nowhere near 6'2", in fact he looks nothing more than 184cm, as evidenced when standing next to 5'8" Stephanie and 6'0" vince.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/16
DDP and Gunn could both look 6ft4-4½ range in the 90's. Today more 6ft4 flat. Both have claimed to be 6ft5 (DDP also said 6ft4 though)

@James: I think 6ft3½ could be argued for a young Dwayne Johnson. He had more than 1in on 6ft2 guys like D'Lo Brown, Shane McMahon, Triple H etc.
The Man said on 2/Aug/16
In the pic with Rob, he could have pulled off a weak 6'4" (192cm) if he stood straight, but I believe he was a solid 6'4" (193cm) in his prime, identical to Diamond Dallas Paige.

Billy Gunn has a good 2-2.5 inches here on 6'1 1/2 Stone Cold in this face to face segment:

Click Here
James B said on 22/Jul/16
Rob I don't think the Rock was over 6ft3 by 1999 was he?
Editor Rob: there's a strong argument that he could have been.
heightchecker34 said on 20/Jul/16
I use to think Billy Gunn was 6'4... always a couple of inches taller than 6'2 Road Dogg. Now with that picture and measurements, he might be 6.3'5 prime. Could fall on either side of the fence really. As for Drew Mcintyre... he is 6'4.5 on the dot (195 cm)... always taller than flat 6'4 guys like Randy Orton, yet shorter than 6'5 guys like Wade Barrett. He and Damien Sandow might measure within a quarter-inch of each other. He always talks about how he was the tallest one from Scotland and rarely met anyone before Barrett.
James B said on 19/Jul/16
Rob is 6'3.75 possible for billy gunn? There is a photo of him and the rock from 1999 and I didn't think there looked that much between them.
Editor Rob: tough to say, but about 6ft 4 I think is fine, you can argue Rock as a strong 6ft 3 though in the 90's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/16
I'd put McIntyre somewhere between 6ft4-5 range.
James B said on 26/May/16
Rob so you think Vegas seeing drew at 6'4 (out of ring gear) in person holds no truth to it? remember Vegas at 181cm is closer to McIntyres height than you are so he might be able to more accurately judge his height.
Editor Rob: I wouldn't rule it out entirely, because a tall 6ft 4 in thicker footwear might pull off 6ft 5 in person.
James B said on 25/May/16
Rob so if drew was at least an inch taller than gunn up close than that would mean he was 6'5.5?????
Editor Rob: well I doubt drew was under 6ft 5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
Right so comfortably above 6ft4, Rob?
Editor Rob: I'd have guessed that yes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/16
No James, McIntyre is a 6ft5 guy. Rob, saw him up close and confirmed it.....I think?
Editor Rob: at least an inch taller up close than gunn...
James B said on 15/Apr/16
Sean- rob is not well like billy gunn too in the pic and he comes up to 5'8
Sean said on 14/Apr/16
I think if Gunn had perfect posture - 6'3.5". With Rob here he looks 6'3". In addition, the pics with Gunn and Morgan from TNA can be deceiving. Gunn is bending his neck up to look at Morgan, who knows what footwear Gunn had at the time. Morgan looked like he was in regular wrestling boots. I think if they had a stare down today barefoot - Gunn: 6'3.5", Morgan 6'8.5"

James, it is rare that a wrestler is underbilled but Gunn is not the only case. Virgil was billed 5ft11 for years and he's a solid 6ft. Mark Henry was billed 6ft1 for years and he's easily in the 6ft2-3 range, some even think 6ft4! Drew McIntyre was originally billed at 6ft4 (now 6ft6 though) and he's a clear 6ft5. I think back in the 80's, they were a little closer. They've gotten way out of control in the last 15-20 years though. Guys who don't even hit 6ft flat are being sold at 6ft4. I think HBK may have been one, don't know for sure though. It is a symbol of how down market pro-wrestling is today. Never fails to insult the fans' intelligence...

McIntyre was no taller than 6'4 according to Vegas who met him in person and even has a photo with him

RoB not trying to be offensive but sometimes we can get it wrong when estimating someone's height in person.

I am just saying wouldn't billy looking legit 6'3 next to you in the photo be enough to to suggest that maybe 6'4 is a bit much? The WWE even billed him at 6'3 and its unusual to underbill a wrestlers height
James B said on 29/Feb/16
Rob you are sure he is 6'4 but he comes out as 6'3 against the number height chart you added in the photo of you and him?
Editor Rob: I think he could look over 6ft 3.
Ended of Debates said on 20/Feb/16
LOL Booker T is 6'1" not Seth Rollins.
Ended of debates said on 20/Feb/16
@A 6'2guy If 5'8" comes up to the bottom of your eyeline than you're obviously not 6'2" you mean to tell me there is a 6" virtical span between the bottom of your eye line to the top of your head?.... When the average size head is around 9 inches. Either you have an extremely long head or an extremely short nose and mouth which is diproportionate to your head. I'm 6'3" and 5'11" comes just beneath my eye line. That's a good 4 inches bud. Just look at 6'4" Dwayne Wade in comparison to 6' Jay Z the top of Jay Z's head is right beneath Wade's eye line.
Johno said on 18/Feb/16
Yup --- 6'3, possibly 6'2.75 but yeh, 6'3.
Paul said on 14/Jan/16
Why in the hell would WWE bill Gunn as an inch shorter, when 99% of all wrestlers gets their height inflated by at least 1.5-2 inches??
James B said on 27/Dec/15
6'3.5-6'3.75 now and peak 6'4-6'4.25 seems right
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 23/Dec/15
Rob,your hair give 0,3in right ?
Any chance for Billy measuring 6ft 4.25 at least at the time of the Con ?
Editor Rob: I would stick with about 6ft 4 for him, he has kept his eyelevel quite straight forward so his head won't look much over 9 inches in that photo...
Craig. said on 3/Dec/15
The WWE is known to bill their wrestlers 2 inches taller than they are. He was listed at 6'5 so he probably is 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/15
Maybe it is posture but Gunn gives a shorter impression than DDP. Just my opinion.
Deego said on 28/Aug/15
On Tough Enough he definitely looks 6'4 next to legit 6'6" Josh Bredl
miko said on 31/Jul/15
Maybe he just got a rogue measurement a few years back at went with a 6'3 bill, just like Bret Hart he was 6'0 and did get 5'11 listings.
BorkLaser said on 30/Jul/15
Rob, seeing Vegas's post made me there any chance you'll hold another height-guessing challenge/contest soon? :) I think I found out about this site after the last one was held
[Editor Rob: for me it's easier to just do the odd video when someone agrees.]

Wow just wow I'm 6'3" and 5'8 comes up to my lower chin.

what type of head do you have?

this guy Click Here measured just shy of 6'3.5 barefoot Click Here
Matthew190 said on 23/Jul/15
[Editor Rob: hard to say, Billy strangely got billed a fair bit as 6ft 3 when he looks taller than that up close.]

To be fair, he definitely doesn't look a full 6'4" above either.
A6'2Guy said on 21/Jul/15
@Ender of debates: No way that is true, I am 6'2", 5'8" comes up to just below my eyeline, it must come up to about middle nose range for you...

Randy might edge out billy today

Billy Gunn in his prime was probably 6'4.25 like orton
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/15
Randy might give a taller impression because he's lean while Gunn is bulky.
They're probably close.
peter ohm'field said on 18/May/15
Hi rob who would you say is taller out of billy gunn and randy orton. I have met randy orton and he is about an inch sorter then me i'm a flat 6'4. You say that orton, ddp and billy gunn are the same height. I'm just wonder who is taller.
[Editor Rob: hard to say, Billy strangely got billed a fair bit as 6ft 3 when he looks taller than that up close.]
James B said on 31/Mar/15
Nah Rampage DDP is barely 6'4 these days.

Billy Gunn on the other hand is still a solid 6'4.
pablo77bar said on 28/Mar/15
He is dropping a little bit of height
But I think at least 6ft 3.25
But I thing he is a strong 6ft 3.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
Nah, DDP's a solid 6ft4 guy even today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/15
Strong 6ft4 guy peak isn't impossible
James B said on 17/Mar/15
DDP is probably fraction under 193cm today. Back in WCW he was as legit a 6'4 as you can get.
Ti'emo Insoto said on 15/Mar/15
Who do you think is taller out of billy gunn, DDP and randy orton they are all listed as 6'4. Now I have met orton and the 6'4 listing is B.S he is 6'3 at best I'm 6'5/6'6 myself and he is at least 2 inches shorter then me. And i can see that you stated Gunn might edge out DDP. Who do you think is tall out of Orton or Gunn.
lendal ortara said on 11/Mar/15
Would like to be able to see him stood next to randy orton and DDP all listed as 6'4. I now orton is listed about an inch below his listed height. I have met orton he's about 6'3 but listed as 6'4. Which is what i am have never met DDP or Billy Gunn. (Rob who would you think is taller.
[Editor Rob: Gunn might edge out DDP by a fraction, how much of a fraction is harder to say, might not be that much.]
Cj said on 10/Mar/15
Billy Gunn has stated in an interview i read a while ago "he's 6ft 3in and in great shape".

Road dogg stated he is 6ft 4in in a shoot interview and again on the wwe networks legends of wrestling raw episode.

Billy is always the taller of the new age outlaws, i think RD maybe a bit of a sloucher but i always thought road dogg was closer to 6ft 2in range personally.
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/15

Not a legit 6'4" in this pic. I can see him as a weak 6'4" maybe.

Still looks 6ft4 today...
Height182 said on 10/Nov/14
I don't know why but Billy just never looked 6'4'' on TV to me. He oddly gave me a 5'11'' impression Lol. He must be one of the shortest looking 6'4'' guys in history.
SAMMY DERRICK said on 19/Oct/14
BILLY GUNN:6'4(193cm)
Dolph Ziggler:5'11.5(181cm)
So these two guys have a pretty accurate billed height.
BorkLaser said on 12/Sep/14
Ziggler is in the 1.81-1.82m range (5'11.5" to 5'11.75") because I saw a site selling a Ziggler life-sized standee and it usually adds 1-2 cm to the height, and it had Ziggler at 1.83m. WWE Shop also has the same standee at 72" which is 1.83m.
James B said on 4/Sep/14
Looks 181cm here
Click Here

Good chance Billy Gunn could have been 6'4.25 in his prime if he's still bang on 6'4 today.
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Aug/14
If Gunn is 6'4 that makes Ziggler 5'11.5 range
mesi said on 28/Aug/14
i fail to see dolph as a flat 5'11, especially in that pic with billy gunn. looks more 5'11.5.
ziggler 5'11.5 max
gunn 6'4
Clay said on 26/Aug/14
Ziggler is indeed about 5'11''.
Alex 6'0 said on 23/Aug/14
Looks at worst 6'3.5 with Rob but 6'4 seems fair in this pic.

I did used to think gunn was 6'3 and is listed as that on w I k I

billy gunn 6'4
dolph ziggler 5'11.5
Rikashiku said on 3/Aug/14
Dolph Ziggler has always looked around 5'11". I think he's slightly shorter than Miz who I thought is about 6'0", and he's clearly shorter than 6'1" Zack Ryder and 6'2" Alex Riley.

Billy Gunn always looked like a solid 6'4". Maybe slightly taller. He edges Chuck Palumbo out by an inch or so.
mike said on 29/Jun/14
6ft 3.5-6ft 4 (192-193 cm) today
6ft 4-6ft 4.5 (193-194 cm) peak

6ft 3.75 would be a better shout.
Poioro said on 26/Jun/14

So if Billy Gun is 6'4, does that make Dolph Ziggler 5'11.5 or 5'11.75?
James B said on 18/Apr/14
This guy could still be 6'4.... DDP however looks 6'3 these days.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 14/Apr/14
At worst he could be 6'3.5 but 6'4 is a fair listing for him
BorkLaser said on 10/Apr/14
Definitely a strong 6'4"! I agree that his bulk makes him look shorter, but next to others his height becomes noticeable
James B said on 30/Mar/14
Triple h looks 6'1-6'2 next to gunn
Bud said on 30/Mar/14
I he is 193cm,than that would put triple h at 189 Click Here but that would mean Cena is at least 185 which he isn't,so i am confused
James said on 11/Jan/14
Just to look at this guy on TV he looks nowhere near 6'4 yet when u see him next to a 5'11 guy like cm punk he towers him.

Maybe his bulk makes him look shorter?

6'4.25 (194cm) peak
6'4 (193cm) today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
Rob, who looked taller this bloke or DDP?

I know Gunn is a much bulkier guy (whether that's natural or not is beyond me) and DDP has a much leaner look. Maybe that might make the latter look taller.
[Editor Rob: both can look near to 6ft 4, Gunn I think might look a little taller. ]

anon630 says on 16/Dec/13
stood next to him for an autograph at Chicago City Limits once. Seemed like he was about an inch taller than me, hovering around 6'0.

if he was 6ft the top of robs head would come to gunns eyebrows.

compare the shot above with this one, the guy in that photo measured roughly 6'3.5 barefoot Click Here
Mathew said on 17/Dec/13
He looks under 6'4" to me. But he's not under 6'3". Most likely he's somewhere between. But not the full 6'4".
anon630 said on 16/Dec/13
stood next to him for an autograph at Chicago City Limits once. Seemed like he was about an inch taller than me, hovering around 6'0. Felt similar to when I met Ultimate Warrior. Definitely nowhere close to Jake Roberts or DDP, who I would put in the 6'3-6'4 range. Dustin Rhodes is also taller, and I'd put him around 6'2-6'3. The impression I left with was that Billy was way shorter than I expected.
Nico said on 14/Jul/13

In this photo, Billy Gunn is stood next to Dolph Ziggler. If Billy is 6'4 does that make Dolph atleast 5'10 to 5'11. In the photo Dolph is just at Billy's nose. Also they do look like father and son lol.
KJK said on 17/Jun/13
Billy Gunn definitely look around 193 cm in the picture with Rob. That means his height matches his billed height in Wrestling pretty good.
BEASTMAN said on 28/May/13
@Dan: Stop trolling.
BEASTMAN said on 28/May/13
@avi: No he's not a strong 6'3. They're losing the same amount of height. If they both stood up straight, there would still be AT LEAST a solid 20 cm difference.
Dan said on 27/May/13
He looks only 6-6.5 inches taller than you here. I have a hard time seeing it as 8 inches.
TAJ said on 26/May/13
I met Billy Gunn along with Road Dogg who is 6'1", and he was 3-3.5 inches taller, with a footwear disadvantage, as Road Dogg always wore bigger boots. This was at a house show in Baltimore in 2011, so he has probably lost some height. But I would say 6'5"
avi said on 14/May/13
@Rob, by you being so close it makes you look shorter like hes pushing you in towards him. hes probably a strong 6'3. if you move more to the right (in the picture away from him) and hold your head up like him he will struggle with a full 7 inches.

Doesn't really look the full 6'4" in this picture. 6'4" is possible if Rob thought it in person. I'd still consider knocking a half inch off though. He doesn't look over 6'3.5" here and tons of places list him at 6'3".
Derek said on 25/Apr/13
Billy will be 50 this year. Still looks 6'3.5"-6'4".
The Ben said on 22/Apr/13
He was billed anywhere from 6'3 to 6'6.
If Rob says he's 6'4 then surely he can be used as a measuring stick for other WWE and TNA wrestlers.

How old is he right now anyway? He sure must have lost a few cms.
johno said on 18/Apr/13
and oh, he used to be billed at 6'6 in the smoking guns.
johno said on 18/Apr/13
About 6'4 in that picture. With rob standing straight he would be around 6'3.5
Bard said on 6/Apr/13
Looks 6'3.5 in the pic but I wouldn't doubt 6'4 in his prime
Mathew said on 25/Mar/13
I wouldn't be shocked if he was only 6'3", he's mentioned at that height a lot. Still sticking with between 6-3 and 6-4 though.
jimmy said on 23/Mar/13
@Ali Baba He must be the only guy these days that his actual height(6'3") is the same with his billed height.The strange is that he looks taller than Rob Terry and only 1 inch shorter than Undertaker.
Kidd said on 21/Mar/13
Looked an inch taller than lesnar on raw so 6'3.5 on the money today
Juju said on 12/Mar/13
I see two inches aswell vegas, but gunn has his shoulder over road doggs and road dogg has bad posture. Six three for dogg
The Ben said on 7/Mar/13
If Rob says he's 6'4 then that's about as good as it gets for an estimate.
Its great to compare him to the current guys on screen, hopefully it'll end the constant downgrades in height.
Vegas said on 7/Mar/13
road dogg looks about 2 inches shorter than gunn Click Here
James said on 6/Mar/13
what about road dogg?
James said on 20/Feb/13
He was a strong 6'4 guy in his early carrier yet just too look at him when he was in WWE 6'4 seems hard too believe. The impression he gave me was 6'3. I guess he could look 6'4 sometimes as well but he looked 6'3 a hell of a lot too me.

Like rob said though wrestlers can sometimes carry themselves shorter.
Rikashiku said on 14/Feb/13
He looked small compared to 6'4" Damien Sandow. Then again, it could have been the position of the cameras.
Jamesy said on 31/Jan/13
He was probably a strong 6'4 in the 90s.
Mathew said on 30/Jan/13
I think he's possibly more a 192 cm than 193 cm guy. He looked a bit taller than Rob Terry in the stare down though, who's listed at 193 cm as well. Ali Baba (who has met Rob Terry) wrote on his page there's not a chance he's 6'4". Rob (editor) indincated in a response to one of my earlier posts on this page that he thinks that Terry's standing posture may be bad.
What I would peg them at: I'll go with 6'3.75" for Billy Gunn and 6'3.5" for Rob Terry. I think given the evidence in it's entirety that makes more sense than both at 6'4" even, but we are splitting hairs I suppose.
[Editor Rob: terry looks like a guy who can walk with an inch compressed spine from what I saw, but I saw him stretching up and looking near 6ft 4]
Lillo thomas said on 28/Jan/13
He is looking 6-3 in the pic but he could be 6-4 in person . Pics aren't very accurate to judge height sometimes .
Trent said on 28/Jan/13
I say 6'3.5 - 6'3.75 with Rob. At 49 he maaayyybe could be down a smidge from his peak. So I think 6'3.75 would be a good listing.
miko said on 28/Jan/13
If he's 6'3 he's certainly at the upper end of it.
Jamesy said on 24/Jan/13
6'4-6'4.5 in his 20s.
LG69 said on 23/Jan/13
6'4" is spot on.
Cj said on 23/Jan/13
Had an interview on the TNA Website a few years back where he stated he was 6ft 3in and in great shape when talking about going on a singles run after splitting up with BG James.

I cant find the interview any more but if anyone can it should roughly say what i have just wrote.
PLB said on 20/Jan/13
I was only 6'3.5" when I was 18. Luckily I grew some more. It took until I was 25 before I finally got to 6'4". And I stayed that height my whole life until at age 69 I fell down a cliff. I hurt my back and was house bound for six months. At the end of that time I lost about two inches.

I think something like this happens to a lot of pro wrestlers. Normal men slowly lose height over a period of many years. No one even notices, It's so gradual. But if you take a lot of falls you can get your spine reworked in a single evening and suddenly become shorter. I think that's what happened to the formerly much taller Hulk Hogan. It looks to me as if he lost four inches. This guy looks about 6'4" here but if he is a wrestler that figure is subject to change at any time.
James said on 3/Jan/13
so is 194cm not out of the question for his peak rob?
[Editor Rob: not impossible, some guys might shrink a bit more than an inch, so at times you might see them look taller.]
James said on 2/Jan/13
He could look no taller than 6'3.5 in one pic next too the rock...however I think that's just because of his posture.

Rob is there a chance this guy could have been 193-194cm in his 20s? Given that he looks a legit 6'4 now aged 49 indicates that he may been a small fraction over when he was much younger?

As far as I know he was billed 6´4" and 6´5"

I recall 6'5 billing for him.
Trent... said on 1/Jan/13
Bizarre that this guy was billed at 6'3 for wrestling. Usually the heights are given pretty extreme upgrades: downgrades are practically unheard of!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/12
192cm at the lowest
B said on 24/Dec/12

There's also john cena...his billed height is 6'1 but has claimed 6'0 in real life

Triple H/Cm Punk/Undertaker/Kane etc. however have heights inflated by at least 2 - 3 inches
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/12
Billed height: 6ft3(191cm)

Real height: 6ft4(193cm)

That's rare
Ali Baba said on 22/Dec/12
He used to be billed taller, but according to WWE's site they're now billing him at 6'3".
Niko 199cm said on 21/Dec/12
looks rather 192cm to me
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 21/Dec/12
Gunn was billed at 6'5 from what I remember
Trent said on 20/Dec/12
Yeah, that surprised me. They usually do some pretty serious exaggeration with the billings. Maybe that's another sign he's really more 6'3.5 than 6'4?
Mathew said on 20/Dec/12
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Did the WWE bill this guy at 6ft6?


He's actually been billed as 6'3" believe it or not.

FiveNine said on 16/Dec/12
At 6'4 this is the kinda dude to be on good terms with... Looks like his arms are big enough to keep so called 'tall' comments at bay...
Steven said on 13/Dec/12
He press rob shoulder down a little. 6'3-6'3.5
Mike said on 12/Dec/12
Billy Gunn is one hell of a big tall guy to me. Aw Christ, look at his broad shoulders. Frighteningly huge man with a big head.
173 said on 11/Dec/12
More like 7.5", though 6'4" standing tall.
Mike said on 11/Dec/12
He is definitely 6'4". BTW, big strong very tall guy. No high shoes included.
Hew said on 11/Dec/12
Looks 6'3 with you Rob.
Ras said on 9/Dec/12
He looks 6'3 with Rob but he really is 6'4. He looks it with pretty much any wrestler out there including HHH. He's one of a few that's proved Triple H is not above 6'2 and pretty much lays his 6'4 claims down to rest.
Greg said on 6/Dec/12
Looks 6'3 next to Rob but he isn't standing perfectly straight. If he was standing straight, I'm sure he could get 6'4 easily.
Tuga said on 5/Dec/12
He´s at least 6'4, Red posted a pic of a staredown with rob terry and bg is perhaps even over 1 inch taller.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 4/Dec/12
Doesn't look quite 8 inches. Bottom of Billys chin is 9.5. Robs head looks 2 inches or so above his chin. Thats why I'd still say 6'3 1/2 for this guy
Ali Baba said on 4/Dec/12
More like 7"
dicksock said on 3/Dec/12
Well, he's clearly 8" taller than Rob; so, he is 6'4".
Trent said on 2/Dec/12
I would put him in the 6'3.5 - 6'3.75 range.
Mathew said on 1/Dec/12
Red says on 30/Nov/12
Mathew says on 29/Nov/12
The pic with Rob suggests 6'3.5" is closer to the truth than the full 6'4".

It´s just a pic and they´re not standing as straight as possible, standing straight Billy had at least an inch on Rob Terry and Terry isn´t under 6´3"


Yeah I know it's just one picture, that's why I didn't say I think he's 6'3" max or anything, just that he looks a bit under 6'4" here in this one picture. People can look shorter or taller in a picture. Yes, to me I see more 191 - 192 cm in this pic, but this is just one picture and this guy could be a good 6'4".
[Editor Rob: in person Gunn and Terry stood near each other several times...I couldn't tell them apart from when Terry stood with 'rounded shoulder'. I don't believe Terry stands at his fullest a lot of time...]
Jesse 6'4" said on 30/Nov/12
Billy Gunn was billed in at 6'4".

My God, he's HUGE!!!
I think his stature's right, considering the large shoulders that could make him appear a little shorter....
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 26/Nov/12
Tony, I agree. I wouldn't put Billy under 6'3.5
tony t. said on 26/Nov/12
He's got at least 1.5 in. on hhh so he's not under 6'3.5.
thinker said on 25/Nov/12
strong 6 ft 3, but nothing more
Vegas said on 23/Nov/12
[Editor Rob: ed quinn is pretty near 6ft 4, but I saw frakes walking by gunn at this event and didn't look much more than 6ft 2, of course he's a guy who looks to have lost height though.]

billy himself looks in great shape for a guy in his 50th year who had neck and knee surgeries in the 1990s, wrestled for 20 years (including 1,500 matches in wwe alone)
Mathew said on 22/Nov/12
Clay says on 21/Nov/12
I'm curious who the 6'4'' actors are that Rob says Billy Gunn looks taller than in person?


I'm guessing he means a guy like Zach Levy, who claims 6'4" but is really about 6'3".
Vegas said on 22/Nov/12
Clay says on 21/Nov/12
I'm curious who the 6'4'' actors are that Rob says Billy Gunn looks taller than in person?

i would imagine rob is referring to actors he met in person that claim 6'4 such as sonny landham, zach levi, ed quinn, jonathan frakes, john de lancie

I'm sure if he stood next to Conan O'brien, Jeff Goldblum, Hasselhoff etc. on a stage he would be right around their height.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 21/Nov/12
Red, I'm thinking Billy is anywhere from 6'3 1/2 to 6'4. 6'3 is too low for him
James said on 19/Nov/12
6'4.5 possible rob?
[Editor Rob: in person I wouldn't say that tall]
Mathew said on 19/Nov/12
If his chin is really supposed to be at 5'7" then he looks well under 6'4", because there is no way the top of Rob's head is only an inch higher than his chin. That said my impression upon looking at the photo was he looks 6'3" - 6'4".
James said on 19/Nov/12
Damien sandow I would think is 6'4?
James said on 19/Nov/12
Maybe matt Morgan is 6'7.5? Although in the video billy is raising his head so perhaps 6'8-6'8.5 for Morgan?
getting_taller said on 19/Nov/12
Rob, you seem to have a long head!, is it more than 10 inches long?
[Editor Rob: no it's in the 9.5 inch range, well to tip of chin (not including any fat under chin)...if you tilt your eyes down a little then in a photo your head will look a bit longer aswell.]
James said on 18/Nov/12
I trust robs judgement. Legit 6'4 for billy
Alex2 said on 18/Nov/12
Danimal please give the trolling a rest, the man is at least 6'4.
tom said on 18/Nov/12
6-3 imo
James said on 18/Nov/12
Well if triple h is 6'2.5 then billy gunn must be 6'5 since there looked 2.5 inches between the 2.
Clay said on 17/Nov/12
lol@max 6'3''.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 17/Nov/12
6'3 tops if too short for him. He doesn't look under 6'3.5 with Rob I dont think
[Editor Rob: I'm sure it would surprise some that his head in that photo isn't much over 9 inches because he's kept his eyelevel a little 'proud': Here.

anyway, in person at his tallest he does look a lot more of a 6ft 4 than many actors who claim 6ft 4.]
James said on 17/Nov/12
Arnie I think was approaching a flat 6'1 when he appeared on wwe.

For some reason 6'4 is hard too picture for billy.
Iillo Thomas said on 17/Nov/12
Well . In the pic above He don't look 6-4 at all . 6-3 tops .
Vegas said on 17/Nov/12
Danimal says on 17/Nov/12
MAX 6'3". Rob's not standing fully straight and Billy is.

that puts arnie probably below 6ft in the 1990s.... Click Here arnolds boots Click Here
Rikashiku said on 16/Nov/12
How tall would Damien Sandow be then? He looked pretty tall compared to the rest of DX, even taller than Billy Gunn.
James said on 16/Nov/12
Arnie is not as tall people think he is. According too mamun he was 5'11 tops when he met him
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 16/Nov/12
James, yea 6'4 in general is pretty tall but in WWE its not that tall. like you said against guys like Big Show, Kane, Khali 6'4 looks average on tv lol
Vegas said on 16/Nov/12
billy gunn was at least 3 inches taller than arnold schwarzenegger back in 1998 and arnold was wearing big heeled boots too
James said on 16/Nov/12
He's not that tall in the wwe considering big guys like Kane and big show
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 16/Nov/12
Billy Gunn was always in great shape. He was a pretty big guy. What was he around 240lbs? At 6'4 240lbs thats a big guy. He just didn't appear that big next to other huge guys in WWF/WWE back then
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 16/Nov/12
Seems close enough to 6'4, he's maybe 6'3.75, big guy.
Clay said on 15/Nov/12
James said on 15/Nov/12
Interesting triple h can look 6'1 range compared too 6'2.75 edge and 6'4 billy gunn... Yet with 5'11 Shawn Michaels and 6'2.5 Brock lesnar looks damn close too 6'3!

Maybe he likes too wear lifts?
THE REAL ANNOYMOUS said on 15/Nov/12
He is a legit 6'4.
I worked Ring security for a promotion called WFX, and was around him, and talked with him many times before, and after shows.
LeBron23 said on 15/Nov/12
Billy Gunn is at least 2 Inches taller than Triple H.Click Here
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 15/Nov/12
Not sure if I see a full 6'4 there but its close though. Nothing less than 6'3.5 though
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
Did he look the same of a Jared Padalecki, that you met too? Jared is a legit 6'4 for sure...
[Editor Rob: he looked near enough 6ft 4, I'd be surprised if there was much between jared or billy although I seen billy a lot more times up close than jared.

and to James from earlier in this thread - he interacted well with fans at this event, but it wasn't that busy, so people got more time with guests.]
nick said on 15/Nov/12
Factually anywhere between 6'3.8 to 6'4.5
Derek said on 14/Nov/12
6'4" seems right. Looked about two inches taller than legit 6'2" Road Dogg in the WWE/F.
Trent said on 14/Nov/12
If he's been listed as 6'3 before, then meeting a middle of the two sounds fair. He could be 6'3 and 1/2 in this pic also.
James said on 14/Nov/12
Looked like a 6'3 guy when he was in wwe

Maybe he's short looking 6'4?
Peyman said on 14/Nov/12
I thought he is 191 but on this pic he is no less than 192 not quite 6ft 4in though .
rob how tall do you think is Road dogg ?
[Editor Rob: not sure on road dogg]
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Nov/12
Rob, you rule out 6'3? He seems a guy who wants to look as tall as possible (i imagine he's standing at his tallest) but he doesnt look a full 6'4... He's big and that could add the illusion of being taller! But he looks 6'3, maybe a good one (6'3.25)
[Editor Rob: if you go with wwe he's down there as 6ft 3 and 260 lbs, although I think he is nearer 6ft 4 than 3.
Tuga said on 14/Nov/12
Nice one Rob, did you meet more wrestlers there?
6´4 seems right.
[Editor Rob: only other wrestler that day was helms]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 14/Nov/12
Billys head looks 9.5 inches. Rob's head comes to Billys lower lip which is like 2 inches above his chin so 7.5 inches which puts Billy at 6'3.5-6'3.75
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 14/Nov/12
Good picture. He's usually been billed at 6'5. He looks 6'3 1/2 here with Rob, not quite a full 6'4. Rob you think he could be 6'4 flat?
[Editor Rob: he looks a lot nearer 6ft 4 in person than many actors who claim 6ft 4.]
Bart Gunn said on 14/Nov/12
He's a legit 6'4".
BEASTMAN said on 14/Nov/12
6'4 easily. Looks no shorter than that to me. Only thing is, Rob Terry is listed at 6'4 too and Terry looks shorter in their match.

Click Here (3:16)
[Editor Rob: they stood talking at the event I went to and i couldn't see any difference, except terry at times doesn't stand as tall as he can.]
Rikashiku said on 14/Nov/12
Finally a pic with Billy Gunn!In this pic, I'd say he looks more like 6'3".

Yeah, he looks 6'4".

just 6 ft 3

looked this height next too triple h although at times could give 6'3 impression.
