memememe said on 18/Sep/15
the wrestlers that knew chris, have all stated in interviews that chris benoit was only 5'8". larry zbysko, kurt angle, kevin sullivan, i forgot who else.

Just heard Jim Ross' podcast with Kurt Angle. Ross said Benoit was undersized, and then Angle followed up with saying he was 5'8". You can hear it on YouTube or I think he was closer to 5'8", as Angle said. And I think Jericho is right on par (even though Jericho claims to be 6'.
Duncan said on 1/Jul/15
Jim Ross mentioned to Jim Cornette on his Podcast a few months ago that he had trouble trying to sign Chris to the then WWF because he was only 5'9".

So 5'9" must be right.

no way was he 5'8, 5'9 barefoot and 5'10 in wrestling boots/footwear.
nayhole said on 28/Mar/15
Probably a solid 5'9. IDK why his autopsy says 5'11. He had to be shorter. Angle is slightly taller then him and hes not 5'11.
Smoosh said on 14/Mar/15
5'8 half to 5'9 for Benoit, no doubt
Alex 6'0 said on 16/Jan/15
Looked 5'9 with 5'10 Kurt Angle. Could be a little less than 5'9 if we did have bigger boots.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jan/15
I don't agree with the 5ft11 descriptions either. I'm just stating a fact his autopsy listed it as his height. I do think he was 5ft9 range though.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover All heights in the autopsy are simply listed after looking at their mentioned height in sites. That day when he commited suicide. The autopsy said he wore athletic shoes. Maybe the measured him up without taking off his shoes. Wrestling boots add 1.5 or 2 inch in height Trust me. He was never that height. He always looked short on tv. are alot of forums about chris benoit in 2004 and 2005. Alot of fans commented about they saw chris benoit in person, took a picture with him and the forum title was what is benoits real height. They said he was never 5' 11". Everyone said he was 5'8 and 5'9 or more like 5'8.5". He wasnt that tall. Autopsy listings are sometimes reported wrong. In brittany murphys autopsy her height said 65 inches(5' 5"). She said herself that she was 5' 3". Why would they list her as 5' 5". Thats bogus. She was 5'2 - 5' 3. Even Anna Nicole Smith height was listed as 71 inches(5' 11). She was never 5' 11. She was 5'9-5'9.5 there are alot of errors in autopsy listings. So dont trust them. Rob has accurate listings. Cuz hes the man :)
TheMasterX said on 25/Nov/14
Chris was never a 5' 10 - 5' 11 guy
Why the autopsy would list him has 5 foot 11. He is only from 5' 8 to 5' 9. Having described his height as 5' 11 on the autopsy is total BS. Do you agree with me rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/14
Rob, are you still ok with this guy having a page?

We had a similar discussion about Rolf Harris

I thought benoit was the same size as triple h but when i saw them face to face triple h towered benoit by about 6 inches
Jesse36 said on 6/Oct/14
But is it possible for him to be 5'9 becaus he looks around 5'8 or 5'7 but it is possible for him to be 5'8.5 or 5'7.75 but 5'9 kind of does work for his height
Clay said on 21/Sep/14
I thought he probably had some decent heels in his boots reaching 5'10.5-5'11ish.
Jesse36 said on 6/Sep/14
Same height as eddie
mikael said on 31/Aug/14
5'9 flat
5'10 in boots maybe
Alex 6'0 said on 16/Aug/14
5'9 is prob fair for Benoit but a chance he's a little less. Def. not more than 5'9. Didn't he wear lifts at times?
Jesse36 said on 14/Aug/14
He is 5'9 or 5'11 or 5'10 or 5'8 in boots barefoot he is 5'7
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Aug/14
Could Benoit be 5'8 flat? Maybe
Jesse36 said on 9/Aug/14
Benoit is shorter than eddie barefoot he looks taller becaus benoit had bigger boots
Jesse36 said on 9/Aug/14
Now I know eddie gurrero is is 5'8 with boots and 5'7 9 inches barefoot chris benoit is 5'8 with boots and 5'7 8 inches barfoot
Jesse36 said on 9/Aug/14
I know now eddie is 5'8 3 inches chris is 5'8 7 inches
Attitude said on 5/Aug/14
They had a match on raw in 2000. Benoit looks barely an inch taller. He seriously looks the same height and build as taz.
Jesse36 said on 5/Aug/14
I think this is the correct height he was 5'8
Alex 6'0 said on 2/Aug/14
Tazz was 5'7. I don't remember Benoit and Tazz together. Benoit looked 5'9 usually on TV
Attitude said on 22/Jul/14
Barely taller than Taz if not the same height
Giuseppe said on 31/May/14
Watch this video Click Here
stop it at 2 'and 20 " will notice the difference between the great Chris Benoit (5.9) and Punk
Clay said on 4/May/14
Eddie was 5'7ish.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 15/Apr/14
Benoit could be 5'9 but that's the most he'd be I think. Was always shorter than Kurt Angle who was 5'10 and at most 5'9 Jericho's height
ck82 said on 26/Mar/14
Benoit was probably close to 5'11" in boots barefoot he was 5'9.5" maximum
killingjoke said on 26/Mar/14
Met Lance Storm a couple years ago. He said, "Benoit wasn't any more than 5'8. Guerrero was 5'6." Lance also said he went to the doctor earlier in the day and was measured at 5'11.75.

Its hard to tell since wwe lies about weight and height.
Cnut the great said on 25/Mar/14
he looks 5'9"... You cant go by comparing him to Eddie Guerro because Guerro is probably inflating his height as well
Rikashiku said on 18/Mar/14
Looking back on some old videos, he gives a 5'10" impression. He's clearly taller than 5'8" Eddie Guerrerero, but maybe 2 or 2.5" shorter than Cena.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/13
"about 5-9 or 5-10"

Somewhere between those two figures...
Jay said on 21/Nov/13
I had a picture taken with Benoit years ago. He was wearing regular running shoes, and so was I.
We are the same height in the photo, and I am 5'8" tall.
bulba said on 6/Nov/13
I guess he might of been about 5'11" when he died because i read a story online that his father said he was 5'10.5" not 5'8".
Powerhouse said on 3/Nov/13
Rob, like other people have already pointed out Chris Benoit had more than 1 inch on Eddie Guerrero. As a matter of fact if you look at picturesor videos of Benoit and Guerrero together there is at least a 2.5 inch difference between them. So either Benoit needs a upgrade or Guerrero needs to be listed shorter. I actually met Benoit and can say he looked about 5'9.5 but he was wearing cowboy boots.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/13
Rob, could he have been 176cm?
Daniel Rivera said on 16/Sep/13
My view is closed, I think these are the correct height:
Eddie was 5ft8 (173c.m), Benoit was 5 ft 10 (178c.m), chris jericho is 5ft10 (178c.m) and kurt angle is 5 ft10 (179c.m)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/13
I think he may have been nearer 5ft10 if Guerrero was 5ft8
Daniel Rivera said on 12/Sep/13
Chris was 5ft 10in, he always had more than 2 inches eddie, on television seemed to be more because eddie always Hunchback
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/13
The autopsy described him as 5ft11
vegas said on 13/Jun/13
with ~5'2 mysterio Click Here
Hardcorowo said on 18/May/13
Never met him.Although i saw some old post with some people meeting Benoit and they all said 5 ft 8.
Conti said on 15/Jan/13
Kurt Angle in the WWF in the early 2000's was always said 6'2,but now everyone is saying he's 5'10 in TNA.I thought he was the same height as Steve Austin,but you know they probably are still the same height.Chris Benoit was 5'8.5 so that means it's still 5'9,but I would say without wearing boots was 5'8.
Alex said on 28/Aug/12
Danimal, you think Benoit is below 5'8? He looks like he wears lifts but I would have pegged him from 5'8-5'8 1/2. Jericho I did meet in person and he was only a few feet in front of me and looked a legit 5'9.
Witchdoctor said on 7/Aug/12
he was always clearly taller than late Eddie guerero 174cm is the absolute shortest he could have been.
Alex said on 4/Aug/12
Benoit at 5'11 is total bunk. Honestly I use to believe that and almost every other billed height LOL. If he were to hit 5'9 barefoot I'd be suprised. Hes more of a 5'8-5'8 1/2 guy legit
