7ft range isn't impossible
Austin said on 15/Jul/15
He looks 7'0.5" and barely 350 pounds these days.
Clay said on 14/Jul/15
Khali actually said 7'2'' and 425 pounds on Chris Jericho's podcast (speaking decent English).
Del alessi said on 21/Jun/15
Khali is 7'6 easily, look at his proportions and comparison to others anywhere, a head taller than Bob Sapp!
mrtguy said on 19/May/15
Rob, what would guess Khali's weight if Big Show is 450 lbs Click Here I can take into account that Big Show does probably weigh 80+ more lbs than Shaq but not Khali. I'm guessing Khali must weigh in the 380-400 lbs range.
[Editor Rob: khali could be 400 range yes.]
Arch Stanton said on 13/Apr/15
Rob can you add a photo? Also no mention of him being a wrestler! Should be reworded as Indian professional wrestler, bodybuilder and actor from Longest Yard.
mrtguy said on 27/Mar/15
Great Khali lost a lot of weight after the surgery. Back in 2006 he looked 385-400 lbs, now barely 350.
173-174 cm guy said on 26/Mar/15
For Me Khali Is A Solid 70 (213 cm ),No Shorter No Taller Than That
teej said on 14/Mar/15
He's a giant of a man, 7'1. I thought i pretty damn tall for an indian being 187cm. Khali is from Punjab. . Punjabi indians tend to be tall. My punjabi friends are all relitivley tall. Ive visited pubjab there twice they are very tall in comparison with the rest of india, most people there i would say were around the 5'11 mark, considering average height in india is 5'7, some even say 5'5, but i dont think its that low. I saw a many many strong 6 footers (6'3+) and a few khali like giants (not as tall as khali mind you!)

pic of Khali and Giant Silva with 6'3" mma fighter gary goodridge. Both men look to be the same height 7'1"
Icehole said on 28/Oct/14
I would say Khali is slightly taller than Silva. Most photo and video evidence would give him about a .5". Silva wears thick boots not to mention there is a photo floating around that proves it. i have no problem give both him and Shaq 7'1".
Greg said on 19/Oct/14
Looks 217cm
miko said on 28/Sep/14
I certainly don't believe he has a full 2 inches on Big Show today put it that way. When they were recently tagging they looked closer in height than they had ever been.
James B said on 27/Sep/14
After years of injuries probably closer to 7ft today
juggs! said on 23/Sep/14
7'4 than 7'2" now. wwe said this.
Guy B said on 10/Sep/14
He's a tall one. I'd put him around 7'0"-7'1"
JT said on 10/Sep/14
Khali's legs are probably atrophied from the inability to exercise them due to bad knees but the high camera angle likely distorts the lack of size even more. Sort of like this high angle pic of big show where his legs look abnormally short and small Click Here

Khali in his younger days. Click Here The low camera angle makes the legs look even larger but still quite a difference compared to today.
Clay said on 8/Sep/14
Well, the only way he could only weigh 350 lbs with that kind of height, upper body and bone size is to have thin lower legs and relatively skinny quads. No wonder he looks like Frankenstein walking around.
RoelC said on 6/Sep/14
Vegas says on 4/Sep/14
off topic but his legs...

I knew his legs were slim, but I didn't know they would be that skinny.
It looks like he has some form of muscle atrophy, cause even if he didn't do any work-out on the legs anymore, I doubt they would become that skinny.

James B said on 2/Sep/14
Rob do you think 7'0.5 is impossible for Khali?
[Editor Rob: with any guy that size, he may shrink near 1.5-2 inches, so it's not impossible he could measure under 7ft 1 at times.]
Clay said on 29/Aug/14
James B says on 26/Aug/14
Clay do you agree Scott hall looked 6'4 next to hogan?

Sure. Not positive about him but I could believe he was 6'5'' in his prime back in the day.

Clay said on 23/Aug/14
Watched that Hogan birthday party segment from Raw on youtube because you had me curious about Nash next to Khali - that was a dreadful angle to try and get a feel for the gap between those two. None the less Khali looked a good 3-4 inches taller when Nash walked past I would say.
Hey I know that guy said on 23/Aug/14
Lol has it right, heights above 6'9 can start looking real distorted to ppl of average height...Dalip may have hit 7 foot+ at some point but really he's now probably 6'11. A huge 6'11 I would add...body mass and shoulder height play a big part in how "huge" a person appears.

Looks no taller than 7ft

Just like Danimal said what someone looks and what someone actually is are two seperate things. measured at 7'1'' and 350 lbs by his doc when he had his tumour removed, same height as a measured 7'1'' Shaq.

phillymike your list looks good. Nick uk do you mean your grandmother worked for wwf? and do you mean andre the giant is 6'10 or are you kidding? I need those 3 inch lifts i'm only 5'2.
Nick UK said on 23/Jul/14
Yeah my gran used to work for wwf too and says Andre was only 5 foot 10?!

phillymike says on 12/Jul/14
Most people on here are pretty close or dead on. Then there are a few that are way off. My uncle worked for the wwf/wwe for 13 years and knows most of these wrestlers. He stated there 3 types of foot wear, meaning boots. The average boot is 1.25", than there's 2 types of lifts: 2.5" and 3" boots. As far as the wrestlers, prime and bear feet:

Alex 6'0 said on 11/Jul/14
A 6'11 Big Show puts Khali at 7'0-7'0.5 and that goes for Shaq too.
sonic said on 15/Jun/14
Found a segment on the indian big brother where they measured Great Khali at 7'3 with shoes.

Most likely he is actually 7'1

Clay said on 4/May/14
James I dont see how anyone could watch Khali on TV and think to themselves ''that guy is under 7 feet!''.
person said on 25/Apr/14
The Great Khali wrestling as Giant Singh was about 7'2 the same as Giant Silva; about 7'1 in WWE from 2006-2008 and around from around 2008 onwards- 7'0-7'0.5 currently; assuming The Big Show is about 6'11-6'11.5.
Eric said on 18/Apr/14
I saw him in Florida in 08. People saying he's 6'9 are absolutely retarded. He's one of the tallest people I've ever seen and he was much taller than my friends Kyle and Kody who are 6'7 and 6'8. I'd say he's at least 7ft 1/2 inch and I'd put show at 6'11 and nash at 6'9.5
Clay said on 11/Apr/14
Khali clearly was 7'1'' in his late 20's-30's at least.
62B said on 15/Mar/14
Clement, I think you are a bit off on at least a few. I physically bumped into Andre the Giant back in late 87' early 88'. He knocked me to the ground. When I stood up, he stood straight up and gave me that Andre stare. I am 6'3", Andre was 7' tall all day long, That's in dress flats(I had a good look), not cowboy boots.
James B said on 11/Mar/14
Just to look at him on TV he looks 6'11. Does not give off a much bigger impression than Kevin Nash

Not bad.
I think Andre was 6'11
Hogan a solid 6'5 (maybe 6'6)

I met Bomb and would say a very strong 6'6.

id say his about 212cm
Lol said on 10/Nov/13
Have you guys never met someone who was 6'10"+? They're HUGE. If Khali is 6'8", that leaves big show at about 6'6", and the likes of Kane and Undertaker at about 6'3". ARE WE ON EARTH?

7'1" for Khali max.
clement said on 30/Oct/13
The Great Khali is 6'8" or 6'9" max
clement said on 4/Oct/13
Dalip Rana Singh {The Great Khali} is 6'9" according to my estimation...
BigjohnUSA98 said on 29/Sep/13
Khali first meets show - Khali at least 1-1.5 inches taller and show clearly has a HEAVY footwear advantage if you look at the soles, if Khali is 6'11 then Show isn't much more than listed Kevin Nash which is complete garbage people!

Harlemhangover56 said on 29/Sep/13
Khali was about 2 inches taller than show in their first two encounters (7'1), looks a bit smaller now, like 1 and a half but he wears smaller shoes due his extreme immobility and needing to be closer to the ground for walking purposes. He's about 7'0.5 nowadays.
clement said on 20/Sep/13
The Great Khali is not more than 7'O''......He is 6'11''.
clement said on 29/Aug/13
my guess is 6'11'.

Rob his official wrestling page seems to list his actual measurements 7 ft 1, 347 pounds. I guessed him a while back at 7 ft 1 and 350-360 pounds. He is actually billed at 7 ft 3 or 4 and 420 pounds though in the ring,

Clay says on 29/Oct/11
Could be 6 inches between Kane and Khali.
Rikashiku says on 28/Oct/11
Yes I've seen the clip Vegas and Khali dwarfs him when they're not wearing munster boots. In the ring in their rivalry, Kane looked 5 inches shorter or more.

Its roughly 5-6 inches between both Khali and Kane and Undertaker. 7'1" looks about right.
Shaun said on 29/Aug/12
He has about 5 inches on Kane and the Undertaker. If they're 6'8" range he's 7'1".

Interesting how some of us on this site knew Khali was clearly suffering from acromegaly/gigantism and a pituitary tumor the first time we saw a pic of him yet he wasn't diagnosed with the disease until only recently via WWE's wellness program. What were his doctors thinking?

I read about his surgery last week and the first reaction I had was "why didn't he get surgery sooner". Then I read they didn't diagnosed him with Acromegaly until just recently. Back in 2006 when he entered the WWE some here (including myself) were saying he suffered from Acromegaly. Considering his facial features (large brow and jaw), the thickness of his hands, but most of all his large size should've alarmed any doctor.
Vegas said on 4/Aug/12
i agree, its incredible to think he has worked for the majority of the last 15 years in both the states and japan and no doctor before now diagnosed him, he should have been diagnosed in india during his bodybuilding days

I totally agree, Shaq's sneakers actually make him 7'3 3/4" tall. He has to thickest sneakers in NBA history.
________

a number of nba dedicated fan forums have shaqs measured height in sneakers down at 7'2.75 Click Here Click Here

now i don't know how true they are (seems to me a little too much unless that was straight out of bed) but suggesting shaq is getting nearly 3 inches from his sneakers is a ridiculous statement even for you (hulk hogan was 6'8+), brook lopez was measured 7'0.75 in sneakers so his brother robin would be around same height, amare was measured 6'10 in sneakers and shaq is not nearly 6 inches taller than him Click Here
kobe24 said on 31/Jan/12
Shaq wears massive lifts sneakers. That shows you that
Even after the surgeries, khali was at least 7'2" in the photo.
Ben said on 30/Jan/12
Big Show is not 6.8, he was an inch under if not eye to eye with Shaq who was one of the few C/PF was was legit 7'1".

Was Singh actually running in the Longest Yard? because the man can barely walk.
