Did StraighHead seriously just call Ernie Ladd 6'6" ??? OMG!!!! LOL!!!! Ladd was a legit 6'8.5" "barefoot" at his peak in his 20's & 30's!
James B said on 30/Apr/16
Hogan claims he was 6'7 peak and I have no problems believing he was at that height out of bed or in large wrestling gear.
James B said on 30/Apr/16
Interesting Sid eudy didn't make the 13 tallest wrestlers of all time list. Him and hogan were both well over average sized for a WWE wrestler but I think you have to be 6'7 minimum to be considered a legit tall guy in the WWE world.

Had a magazine from Japan from the early 90s with a Rick Rude interview in it,he stated WWF billed him at 6-4" and he said he was just over 6-2". Also said it was common practice to bull **** heights.Warrior was billed at 6-4 but he said warrior was shorter than him!! Hogan was never 6-7 he said. 6-5" maybe flat.

That's nice to know!

Peak Studd was well over 6'8", Fralic stood on his toes to get up to his eyes, and Studd was slouching, so enough of the 6'7" bull for him. He was almost even with Erie Ladd when they were both at their best heights and Ernie was a legit 6'9" plus barefoot guy. And if Bill Anderson was around 6'1", what are you trying to prove? Hogan was still way over half a foot taller in their pictures together.

Your the one who should be ignored here, since your a proven liar. If anyone was on his tip toes, it was Studd - thats the only way that makes sense, but since we cant know for sure either way, why dont you drop it? and Ladd was 6'6 not 6'9

FYI all the guy asking the question is er4smiths. That's a fact look back at older posts it's him.

I mentioned it before, I used to be 6' 4.5", and wish I still was. Met Hogan only 1 time in my life, that was back in my own height prime in 1977. At that time, I have no doubt he was 6'7". One thing else about Hogan, he has enormous hands.

Click Here Hogan claims he was 6'7" at the age of 25.
bigmike74 said on 26/Apr/16
Never met JYD or Studd but in there matches there is not 2" between he and Hogan maybe 1" at best. There are pictures out there and matches on youtube that show good comparison shots and for sure in any of those shots they look to close to judge but giving the Benifit of the doubt because i have not personally seen Studd i will give him a inch but anything more is absurd. 6'6" Prime Hogan for the million time.
RP said on 26/Apr/16
I stand corrected!...the propanderance of the evidence points to a barefoot peak Bill Anderson @ 6'0.5" (72.5") !!!
Boss said on 26/Apr/16
Bill Anderson looks at least 6'1" range.
JT said on 25/Apr/16
Click Here Met JYD back in 1986 - he was no more than 6'1".
james said on 25/Apr/16
He was never 6'7 .John Studd was 6'7 and was always about 2 inches taller than Hulk in their matches ..and back in 1997 when 6'7 Dennis Rodman would do NWO promos with Hogan in cowboy boots .Hogan looked about 6'5 next to dennis

Always visible shorter than 6´1" range guys like Vince, Warrior, Roddy Piper.
Clear 4 inches shorter than 6´4" Warlord.


OJ Simpson is slouching as hell, how comes you make up storys about Vince wearing lifts and not mentioning this???

Guess Warlord, Warrior, Roddy were in the same lifts too, 6´1.5"-6´2"Sting of course was in lifts b/c he was clearly taller loooool


Bill at his peak was a solid 6-footer , 6´1"-6´1.5" in footwear.
Vegas said on 24/Apr/16
If Anderson is 6'2 and we take that photo of him and Hogan at face value then Hogan was basically 6'8 and big show was best part of 7'2 comparing him to anderson..so wwe didn't over overbill either!

Funny Anderson looks around my height standing next to big show.
heightcrazyred6ft said on 24/Apr/16
Calm down with all these excuses

Bill was not 6'1" or taller.

He claimed 6'1" so thats his height us style in footwear
RP said on 23/Apr/16
Yep, Boss is correct...Vince is perfectly erect & intentially trying to look his tallest. Bill is relaxed, slouched a bit & he has a noticeably bent knee as well. Vince's 1.25" advantage here quickly disappears to nothing or 0.25" if Bill stands as straight & erect as Vince. Plus, never trust Vince McMahon's footwear !!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/16
Bill Anderson looks near 6ft2 for sure and he's leaning w/h Vince (who was that range himself peak).
RP said on 23/Apr/16
Vince does have Bill by an inch +...however, Vince was long rumored to be a lift wearer as well ??? So, who knows. IMO...the best proof is Bill having 1.25" on a "known' & officially meaured 6'1" man in OJ Simpson. Giving, OJ was not in his prime anymore...and not is full 6'1" to 6'1.25" peak anymore...but, most likely had only list a 0.5" at that time ??
Boss said on 23/Apr/16
Bill is leaning a bit and has his knees bent with Vince. They are close to the same height.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 21/Apr/16

This is the best to get Bill´s real height imo. Looks a solid inch or a bit more shorter than 6´1.5" max VKMcM.

So Bill comes out a solid 6footer.
RP said on 21/Apr/16
Thank you, Boss! Exactly! Plus, it is well known that Sting wore very thick soled wrestling boots. Giving him about a 0.5" footwear advantage over most guys. Steve aka Sting, has claimed many times that his real height is 6'2"...like I said before...Bill was at a minimum of 6'1.5" at his peak...most likely 6'1.75" to a weak 6'2"! BTW...JT, a 6'0" Bill Anderson gives you a 6'2" to 6'2.5" Bruiser Brody...LOL!!!!! And Yes!! OJ Simpsin was a legit 6'1" to 6'1.5" plus in his prime...probably a weak 6'1" to 6'0.75" at the time the pic with Bill was taken. Age and the NFL beatings did cost OJ a good inch in height be his 50's.
Boss said on 21/Apr/16
Bill Anderson claims a height of 6'2".

Here is Bill with 6'1" OJ Simpson.
Click Here

Here is Bill with 6'2" John Candy.

Here is Bill and Sting at their peak. Bill is not on his toes. His right leg is straight and planted firmly on the ground. His left leg is on his toe a bit but is also bent so i doubt he is gaining any height from it.

Here in JT's version he changes the angle so it looks like is right foot is off the ground and then shows 2 photos of a past peak Bill with Sting.

Bill looks easily between 6'1"-6'2" peak. So RP is closer than JT.

Yep, Brody aka Goodish had a true barefoot height of 6'4"...possibly 6'4.5" at his absolute peak & prime. A peak Hogan was taller. Best comparison is the pics with Bill Anderson who was a legit 6'2"...absolutely no less than 6'1.5" to 6'1.75",,,There are two great pics of Hogan wit Bill Anderson & Brody with Bill Anderson. Back in the early 80's...'80-'83 time frame. Hogan is a solid 4" taller than Bill Anderson ...maybe even 4.5" inches. While Brody was only 2" to 2.5" taller. Just google this pics. Sorry, I couldn't get them to post on this page...Hogan was most likely in his 1.5" wrestling boots when he was with Anderson...so, I'll give him a 0.5" footwear advsantage over Bill Anderson. Those two pics show the following: Bill Anderson: 6'1.75", Hogan: 6'5.75" to 6'5.5" & Brody; 6'4" to 6'4.25" ???

Bill Anderson was 6’0” TOPS.

Why do you always feel compelled to make things up and act like you have the inside scoop on wrestlers and can pinpoint their heights down to a fraction of an inch? You’re proven wrong so often, including in the past on Brody’s height, so at least knock off the fraction estimates.
Boss said on 20/Apr/16
I think those estimates are very close Red. I enjoy some of your comparison pics as well. Anywhere from 6'5"- 6'6.5" peak for Hogan is a legit guessing range. We can go as high as 6'6.5" because that's what he stated under oath and "maybe" he measured right out of bed. In Brody's book it said he was 6'4 and 240 in high school and then he is reffered to as 6'5 in most cases so 6'5" seemed realistic but 6'4 range is fine for Brody.
straightahead said on 20/Apr/16
At 263 lbs, he lookes heavier than Hogan as well
bigmike74 said on 19/Apr/16
@HeightcrazyRed6ft i seen Brody and Bugsy Mcgraw in the early 80s at a Wrestling show in Jacksonville at the shriners hall back then you could meet them and get autographs unlike now how the wrestling shows have become a huge event anyways i knew of Bugsy from CWF in Tampa which came on at 2 Saturday afternoon but not Brody. I was around 15 or 16 years old and not done growing so i was around 6' to 6'05" and Bugsy in Cowboy boots was taller than then probably 6'1" maybe 6'2" and Brody was a big guy but a few years before that i seen Hogan in Tampa wrestling at a show at the armory and Hogan was younger, bigger in mass and taller than both Brody and Busgy. Peak Hogan was every bit a 6'7" to 6'7.5" guy then in gear and Brody had to be 6'5" in gear.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 19/Apr/16
Boss said on 18/Apr/16
So what Red your saying Brody is 6'4 and would be taller than a peak Hogan. That's ridiculous if that's what your trying to say.

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

No I was saying that because of 6´4" Brody would be taller if standing straight, the pic must be a composite. Footwear is pretty equal.

Peak Hogan was imo 6´5.25-6´5.5" evening height.

Boss said on 18/Apr/16
I don't make anything up there Red. Brody is listed 6'5" from almost everywhere I can find and was billed at 6'8". Brody has what looks like cowboy boots on so why are you talking about Hogan's boots. The pic could be composite but gives us an idea.


:) That was my point... listed everywhere...but brought up at celebheights as a legit 6´4" - Hope Rob lets more old comments stay here in the future :)
Thought as a longtime visitor you should´ve known about Brodys legit height of 6´4". Even his good friend Stan Hansen described him as 6´4".
And Brody isn´t in cowboyboots he is in wrestlingboots with about the same sole as Hogans.
RP said on 18/Apr/16
It is without question a composite photo. Frank Goodish was 6'4" to 6'4.5" barefoot...abut 6'5.5" in his wrestling boots. his 6'8" billing was ridiculous ! Right up there with Andre's 7'4" or Kane's 7'0" billings.
James B said on 18/Apr/16
Yeah so the reason why maybe sid had so much height on hogan in 1991 is because he might have been no taller than 6'5 (196cm) by that point.
Boss said on 18/Apr/16
So what Red your saying Brody is 6'4 and would be taller than a peak Hogan. That's ridiculous if that's what your trying to say.

Hulk with 6'5" Bruiser Brody. Hogan has slightly better posture but Brody has a footware advantage. He looks 6'6" with Brody.

Unfortunately, it is a composite photograph.
James B said on 17/Apr/16
Rob do you think it's impossible that hogan could have shrunk to 6'5 in 1991 due to surgeries?
Editor Rob: not impossible to have lost some height. The amount of impacts some wrestlers take over a few years might cause disc problems earlier than we expect.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 17/Apr/16
Looking again at the Brody Hogan pic this time on the big screen, I doubt they really stood together, Hulk has pretty big soles and Brody standing straight would easily be taller than Hulk
heightcrazyred6ft said on 17/Apr/16
Boss, its well known on this site for years that Brody was 6'4" so stop making things up.
Brody is slouching big time he would need more massive footwear to egalize that.
Hogan barely looks taller and noway 6'6"

You forget as well Sid had significant hair advantage over hogan to which can distort things.


Nonsense, counting Sids hair would make a 3" difference, Sid didn´t have noticeable footwear advantage.

Great pics HeightcrazyRed6ft, a solid 2 in between Hogan and Sid. He is also looking a 6'7.5" peak Taker in the eye, I wonder what excuses will be used for that. He could have been slightly less but under 6'7" for Sid just seems beyond ridiculous now.

6'6.5" peak Sid means the serious downgraders here are right. Hogan must have been 6'4.5" peak.

@er4smiths glad you met someone. But Hogan is not under 6'3.5 with bad posture there's just no way i am a tad over 6'3" in shoes 6'4" in boots and Hogan is taller than me with equal footwear so there is absolutely no way! He is taller than me. With equal footwear i with cross trainers on am exactly 6'3 5/8" tall without shoes I'm 6'2.75" 6'3" out of bed. He had me by atleast a inch and a quarter maybe 1 and a half is more accurate. So at 6'3.5/8" at bare minimum 1" he's 6'4.5/8" with shoes your math don't line up. Try again buddy.
Johan said on 15/Apr/16
@James B

I tried photobucket and what i saw was someone's guess on the footwear. He was also incorrect on the height difference, it was 2 inches not 1.5 inches so even with a 0.5 inch advantage which i highly doubt that still puts Sid at 6'7" if Hogan was 6'5.5" as i think.

If he was the 6'6" that many think then Sid was 6'7.5" at peak which i think is too much.

hey guys - sorry I was away. I know you all missed me...well at least bigmike74 did!
Anyway - @62B little late to give you my answer as you won't believe me but my guess in 2 seconds was 6'6" and that's before JT fixed the angle. That's the God's honest truth. That's not to say I couldn't guess wrong other times as nobody is perfect - well except ryan11 and Boss! This weekend I actually got to see a great pic a guy showed me of he and Hogan at an autograph signing. I measured up to the guy in the exact same pose he and hogan are in. We asked 4 random people nearby to look at the photo and then compare the pic to he and I standing in the same way and they all said myself and Hulk looked the same height next to the guy. So all that being said - and before the chosen 3 lambaste me with the name calling this actually was huge because it's proving my very logical obvious theory more and more. Hulk Hogan can not be over 6'2.5" today period. Again, to all my hateslaves out there - I will eat BIG CROW publicly if someone can prove me wrong. I won't mind as I really just want us all to agree. Like that will ever happen! This is America land of the divided. Also, Rob - I think I need a step by step tutorial on how to post a pic on here. I'm having a tough time with posting pics. Man it feels good to be back! Unless you all want me to leave forever... :(

Sorry bud, you are right. I don't believe you. Mainly because you did exactly what I thought you would do and wait for me to post Sams height. The other interesting result about my photo test ,that I figured would happen, is the only people to take a guess were the people that don't seem to have the agenda of downgrading people they have never seen in person. Hogan was easily 6'5" and in my opinion probably some change peak. 6'6" peak for me is pushing it, but not out of the realm of possibility. Today he could be 6'2 1/2" like you say, as I do believe he is about my height, but people who have seen him recently suggest he is probably still at least 6'3". Maybe taller.

Johan - type in Sid and hulk hogan on photobucket.com. It mentions on the descriptions in some of the pictures of the 2 men how much height advantage sids boots gave him.

You forget as well Sid had significant hair advantage over hogan to which can distort things. A lot of the photos of Sid justice and hogan are from the early 90s and I think by that stage hogan was half an inch shorter than his peak of 6'6.
Johan said on 14/Apr/16
How do you know that Sid wore thicker boots James B??

I mean Hogan was usually in solid 2 inch cowboyboots so what do you think Sid was wearing?

Not sure if anyone else was wanting to take a guess on the kids height I posted with Shaq so 184.3cm, you win. Sam is 6'6"

Shaq comes out at his listing then as well. Between 7' and 7'1" considering his footwear. Also explains why Big Show was 2in smaller.

Sid was Undertakers height in his wrestling gear. Sid's boots may be why he comes out taller than his barefoot height. He looks a .5" taller than Taker in some pics and .5" shorter in some pics. Undertaker is 6'7.5" barefoot and around 6'8.5" in his boots with Sid. So Sid could look 6'8" range or better in boots.

I think it's fair to say that by 1992 hogan was no taller than 6'5 1/2

If Hogan was 6´5.5" in 1992, Sid was 6´7.25-6´7.5" Fact

I think Rob has Sid a tad to low, 6´6.75"-6´7" imo
Wich makes Hogan a maximum 6´5" flat in 1992, he already wrestled 15 yrs so losing a tad or two isn´t impossible

Uh your forgetting Sid wore thicker wrestling boots then hogan

Eh, Studd overall from the interview video with Fralic to the wm2 battle royal looks at least 6'6". Personally I don't think Studd had Hogan by more than an inch in the mid/late 80's.

6'7.5 " for the guy with Shaq.

@62B pic has a funky angle but i would guess 6'3.5" to 6'4.5".

------------------------------

well there is shaq standing beside hogan (in cowboys) back in 1994 Click Here

that chap is easily a couple of inches taller than hogan "funky angle" or not
bigmike74 said on 9/Apr/16
@62B if shaq is 7'1" then that young fella is in the 6'5 1/2" to 6'6 1/2" Range barefoot. It looks like shaq is leaning and relaxed as if he didn't want to take the pic but if he's 7' then i say 6'4.5" to 6'5.5" with the funky angle. Really hard to say.

Big John studd was a freak of nature though. Made hogan look small in terms of sheer body mass.

In fact I think a prime stud was more of a monster than Braun strowman.

@62B

I would have said around 6'6" for the kid next to Shaq but im not sure about the footwear. I think Shaq has less shoes there and the kid has volume in his hair. Removing the hair i thought around 6'6".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/16
I actually think he was a solid 6ft6 guy in his prime (and 6ft7 out of bed). Watch him in the late 70's. Just a mountain of a man and at his heaviest was well over 300lbs...and very agile for his size.
RP said on 7/Apr/16
62B...if Shaq is 7'1"..???...then I'd guess the young man in the pic is 6'8" ?? ...if Shaq is 7'0" barefoot? Then I'd say that fella is 6'7" barefoot. Maybe 6'7" & change ???

One Man Gang was a big guy. 6'6" - 6'7" easy. Ben Davidson was a extremely tall guy for NFL back then 6'8 1/4" was his barefoot measurement when he tried out for the NFL and also documented on his physical clearence form that they did every year start of season. His last 1 says 6'8" which i assume is just minor height loss from getting hit in the NFL for so long. That picture shows alot of things. 1. A prime 6'3" Hogan as some of the idiots say just can't be possible. 2. A prime 6'4" Hogan just can't be possible.
3. A prime 6'6" Hogan fact. Just to appease the idiots even if he had lifts in his boots it still puts him at 6'6" if no lifts are there which i would bet there weren't he could have been a shade over 6'6". So now all that is out there let the dumb a$$ ignorant Moran try to figure a way out to side step it. Ben Davidson was around 6'9 1/2 - 3/4" and change with boots so a 6'3" Hogan would have to have blocks under his feet to get to the mark he is in that pic.

@bigmike74 the truth must be devastating for your wet pants fankid fantasies, so extremely devastating even to this date that your only desperate chance here is to focus on me as a poster, using name callings, ignoring the truth, and being a proven liar. You have zero arguments and zero evidence to come up with.
RYAN11 said on 4/Apr/16
Boss, that photo has been on here many times. Hogan is no more than 1 inch shorter than Davidson. Hogan is bald while they have full heads of hair. Carey has unknown footwear while Hogan and Bens are the same. Carey is a foot closer to the camera which is why he looks 6'6" there. Hogan is 6'7" there easily barefoot, but if you want to say 6'6.5" I'm not arguing over a half inch lol. Hogan is further back as you pointed out, so that alone makes him within an inch or less of big Ben.
6'2 said on 4/Apr/16
first of all straighthead if you want to put george gray omg akeem at 6'1 or 2"' thats fine but in a recent pic of him with slick he appears a few inches shorter seems to be the same event as the one ottman was at now slick is about 6'3 or 4 when you compare him to 6'4 kamala but when we look at slick when he managed akeem he was 3"' shorter putting him in 6'7 bracket. basically what im saying theres something very wrong with the pictures of omg and ottman trust me on this george gray is not under 6'3 and i stand by all my estimations i belive im about the best on this page if not im certainly in the top 1

Straightahead, do you even know who the One Man Gang is or was?? He was even in height with Studd, so now Studd was only 6'3"?? You must be confused, as for 6'2" list, it's reasonable and if anything estimating on the low side for some of them.

@6'2 Ingnore the idiot. Good listing. That's not even Ottman. Like i have said if we all just ignore that idiot maybe he will just finally get the hint that his BS has come to a end.
James B said on 3/Apr/16
I must say in the 1980s hogan looked like a very big man indeed. Held his own against 6'11 Andre.

Today hogan still looks like a really big guy but obviously he will keep losing height in the upcoming years.

Have a gut feeling though hogan ain't going to be alive for a great deal longer.

You only need to prove one of these height estimations dead wrong and your entire list fails, totaly. Lets check out One Man Gang, he was not taller than the 6'3 Ottman Click Here (back in the days) and this is how they compare recently Click Here

With that said and proved, you then need to delete 3 inches from many of the others in this list as well, start with Hogan. But you actually got some of them almost right, like Tenta he was perhaps 6'5. Kane and Taker minimum 6'7 peak, Nash maybe 6'9.
Boss said on 1/Apr/16
Here Hogan with NFL's Ben Davidson 6'8" and Julius J Carrey 6'5". Carey and Davidson are both standing closer to the camera with Carey being the closest. Hogan comes out looking around 6'6-6'6.5" range.

Kevin Nash clearly stated Hogan was 6ft 4in when he first saw him in action in the 1980s so why are people still saying Hogan was 6ft 7in?

Because Nash´s 6´4" was a rough guess from a distance, not a measurement.
Anyway it´s quite as wrong as the 6´7". Right around the middle of them is the truth.

This is how I see the chances of his peak evening height:

198cm - 3%
197cm - 25%
196cm - 55%
195cm - 15%
194cm - 2%


Rob, nailing it to evening height would you agree with this?
Editor Rob: I'd weight it a bit higher towards 197-8
bigmike74 said on 1/Apr/16
I have met many tall athletes and just tall people in general in the business I'm in. I don't claim to be a height expert but i know a 6'2" person compared to a 6'4" person. Hogan was bigger than me and my brother we are both considered tall guys. He was taller than both of us in low top shoes maybe giving 1" tops of lift more like .75". He was 2" taller than my 6'2" brother. My brother had regular shoes on giving about 1" so footwear was equal. There's not that much of a noticeable difference with 1" but 2" + you can see. When he was standing around limp posture he still had Troy by almost 2" so 6'3.5" at low and straightened up 6'4" maybe even 6'4 1/4" that's barefeet. My statement towards straightahead was just so everyone can see what most of us already know that he is just stirring the pot with BS. The Rocks page shows that read down it a bit in bold letters he says he could see Hogan over 6'5" peak but on here he spouts 6'4" I'm sure if you went to other wrestlers sites on here he would be all over the place to push his agenda for his fanboy fantasy. I won't respond to his trolling but the prople who met Hogan know what I'm talking about.

HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 29/Mar/16
Longtime german WWE commentator Carsten Schäfer described Hogans inring height as 1,98m-2m depending on how thick the soles of his shoes are. Pretty interesting he mentioned the footwear, he met him personally backstage so I don´t think he is making things up.

The comment was on a german dvd when Hogan fought Big John Studd.

1,98m-2m / 6´6"-6´6.75" in ringgear sounds pretty legit and points to a 6´5"-6´5.5" barefootheight, hard to get closer than this.
straightahead said on 29/Mar/16
@bigmike74 please, stop focus on me and try focus on the subjects instead... everyone has right to their own opinion (right Rob?) and i never said Hogan was 6'5, more like 6'3! get your facts right!
Editor Rob: yeah, I think people can guess Hogan whatever they wish. There is bounds of believability though. Saying Hogan is 6ft - 6ft 1 would be taking it too far.
miko said on 29/Mar/16
I'm still of the opinion that if he stands up as tall as physically possible he'd still clear 6'3.
James B said on 28/Mar/16
Sid would often wear thicker wrestling boots than hogan in the early 90s boosting him to 6'7 legit and add to that hogan probably was between 6'5-6'6 at that point.

Back in my prime I was 6'4.5" tall and 245 pounds. Those days are long gone. I got to meet Hogan in 1977, trust me, he was he was every bit of 6'7" and 290 to 310 pounds then. Never met him again.

Hes on there saying Hogan was 6'5" plus and the rock is 6'4" but on here he's saying different just to piss people off.

Big Mike, you are on the money about that troll. I have met and seen him up close twice. Once in 87 pre height loss and just over a year ago. He was truly 6'9" in his wrestling boots back then so 6'7" or within a half inch barefoot easily. He was over 6'4" barefoot the last time I met him, one guy there who was 6'4" thought for a second he was taller taking a picture with him until Hogan straightened his knees and stood tall, suddenly Hogan was taller and their footwear was the same

straightahead said on 22/Mar/16
@bigmike74 and there we go again, another personal focus. Iknow your desperade because you have ZERO evidence. Fact is, Hogan couldnt even pull of his fantasy height of 6'6 next to other billed wrestlers. Some examples: like "6'7 John Studd" (who was with a huge footwear advantage same height as 6'4 1/2 Fralic) "6'6 One Man Gang" (who wasnt taller than the 6'3 Ottman), "6'4 Bossman" (who was shorter than 6'3 Ottman), "6'3 dibiase" (who was shorter than Bossman), "6'2 peak Vnce" (who was shorter than 6'0 tops Bret Hart) and the list goes on and on and on... all these pure fantasy heights, THIS is what you comparing Hogan too.

But in reality, he had when wearing cowboyboots(!), tops 6 inches on 5'10 Bulldog (some here even give him 5'9) so that puts Hogan to what? u do the math. 6'2 peak or maybe 6'3 if lucky, and he wasnt taller than 6'4 Jimbo Covert, and he had barely 2 inches on 6'2 Otis Wilson even the fact Hogan for 100% sure weared cowoyboots in that picture (and btw, both Jim's and Otis heights included footwear, so they are more likely 6'3 and 6'1) again we are back to a 6'2-6'3 Hogan.

er4smiths is more and more right, Hogan no way 6'4 peak but more likely 6'3 - BARELY.

Dears, all these discussions about a few centimeters back and forth, please see Hulk with singer James Blunt, James s round 5 feet 8 inches let us say 1,73 m and Hulk is more than a head bigger than him. As Celeb delivers nearly and realistic size measures let us accept that Terry Bollea now is abount 6 foot 3.5 inches which is 1,92 cm and used to have about 6.6 inches at he top. So we can also believe Terry that with his 6 foot 4 inches he is telling us the truth. As a big fan of Hulk Hogan and his way how he presents wrestling i am strongly convinced that he tells us the truth also here. But you all are right that the good Andre the Giant was in maximum round 6.11.5 seeing him also on the picture with Wilt Chamberlain and never was 7 feet 5 inches ever. Have a good time all of you fans of wrestling community.

@straightahead i take what i said back about er4smiths. You should be eating the 45 LCP. Aleast with er4smiths once he actually sees proof of something he will admit it i honestly think you are the troll. I don't care if you don't believe me about Hogans height it really doesn't matter. I met him stood 2 feet away from him for 15 minutes i sized him up and i had another person of known height to me to base my already known conclusion of where he hovers around and it's no less than 6'3.5 minimum and more like 6'4". You preach camera angles this and camera angles that. B.S. I don't get fanboy star struck so just like looking at a person in the grocery store who is taller than me i did the same with Hogan. You cant say that and until you can stfu! You are trolling with you complete nonsense. A taller man can adjust his height by stance and relaxed posture when taking photos with a shorter person Rob can tell you that he does it quite often with other celebs when he gets photos with them when they are slouching. If he stood straight at his height and takes a picture with say a 6'2" person who is leaning or slouching with relaxed posture the 6'2" person from the mid chest level up in the photo could look 5'11" so your garbage is not excepted as fact especially to the people on here who have met Hogan face to face.
I haven't read a post yet where a person who has met his says he's anything less than 6'3.5" but most say 6'4" plus the 6'5" assumptions are a little out there but i cant say it's a lie not knowing what his footwear is. But your picture measuring claims are garbage and should be looked at as garbage. All the people saying there face to face estimation can't be wrong.

@bigmike74 - I've gone thru all 3 days of the Gawker trial and I seem to be missing the part you described down below "If you want stone evidence watch the 1st day of Hogans court case vs Gawker. They ask him under oath and the judge states her Deputy in the court room is 6'3' for reference what his starting weight and height were pre health issues and he states just over 6'6.5" and 310 pounds then they ask him after injuries what his weight and height is and he states 6'4" and his weight moves between 275 to 290 pounds. She has her deputy stand beside him for reference and he is taller than the deputy"
Can you provide the youtube link and at about what time point the part is at in the video? thanks
bigmike74 said on 16/Mar/16
@RP i don't think they were talking in shoes height. The judge made her bailiff stand next to Hogan and she said his height was 6'3" Hogan was in dress shoes and appeared 1.5" to 2" taller. He had the heel advantage and for once he stood straight up and was no less than 6"4" possibly .5" to .75" over.

On what Big Mike74 posted on Hogan's trial testimony of being 6'6.5" peak & now 6'4" @ 62 yeas old....I can totally buy that with it being his height in shoes? Peak Hogan was about 6'6.5" in shoes...and current Hogan is indeed about 6'4" in shoes. And since 2/3rds of the general public give their heights as it is with shoes on...then this is accurate testimony.
straightahead said on 13/Mar/16
@RYAN11 you already gave me the laugh of the year and yet its still only mars... so now we are to believe that the GIANT in the company was heavier than his BILLED weight too?! seriously you cannot judge height NOR weight. And no they wouldnt had announce Hogan as 330 if he was a legit 300, try 360 instead. Studd on the other hand was barely a legit 300 lbs but billed around 360-370. 280 lbs Fralic looked more massive in shoulders, chest, arms next to Studd than what Hogan ever did, and add to this; leg muscles. Hogan never had big leg muscles but Fralic had since he played football.

Hogan 6'4 - 270 lbs (being generous)
Studd 6'5 - 300 lbs
bigmike74 said on 11/Mar/16
@er4smiths i don't know what photos you are looking at but Hogan looks equal in height with Hoff and possibly a bit taller if he straightened up and the Aikman pics are not even usable for the ones you are talking about because they were on a blue screen incline and Aikman was infront of Hogan same goes with the manning pic that is the worst for ignorant comparison because of the angles and how both men are standing. Try again you are still talking nonsense. You should eat a 45 LCP.

RYAN11 said on 9/Mar/16
Hogan's weight fluxuated between 310-330 lbs while he was on the juice and that has been stated by many others not just Hogan. Listing Hogan at just over 300lbs was to make the Giants he wrestled seem overwhelming to beat. If you wee to announce him at 330lbs then the 360lb Studd doesn't seem so gigantic, and Bundy who.was 440lbs seems to big also. As for Andre, Noni would not say he was 700lbs, but his announced weight never changed for 10 years despite the FACT he kept growing at an accelerated rate and was noticeably much heavier, so 600lbs is easily possible. Big Show was just under 500lbs at one point, and was never as large as Andre was nor as tall. Like Big Mike pointed out, I also haveet and seen both Hogan and Andre up.close in person. I also know what a 250 or 300 lbs man looks like. Hogan was much bigger and taller than any 6'4" 280 lb guy in the 80's. And Andre was over 7 feet tall by a good amount and we'll over the 525lb mark they gave him when I saw him in 1987. But you go.on with your expert height guessing from pictures lol

Anonymous1 said on 9/Mar/16
...I don't claim to be certain of anything, regarding Hogan's height. But, in just watching his first appearance on The A Team (1985) today, on whatever oldies station, he was taller than Mr T, for sure. But, he did not seem to completely dwarf him, either. I've always read T was 5'11 or 5'11 and 1/2. If that's true, Hogan certainly didn't "look" 6 or 7 inches taller than him, in this 1985 episode. If Hogan was 6'7, or close to it, back then, it sure didn't seem so in this show. Looked more like 6'4 or "maybe" 6'5, barely. All I'm saying is that maybe this explains his huge height loss; Maybe he was never anywhere near 6'7 to begin with. I'm basing this solely on what I saw today.

@straightahead i don't care either way. If you want stone evidence watch the 1st day of Hogans court case vs Gawker. They ask him under oath and the judge states her Deputy in the court room is 6'3' for reference what his starting weight and height were pre health issues and he states just over 6'6.5" and 310 pounds then they ask him after injuries what his weight and height is and he states 6'4" and his weight moves between 275 to 290 pounds. She has her deputy stand beside him for reference and he is taller than the deputy. Point is the Attorney asking the questions was showing the jury and judge the physical aspect of what wrestling does to your body and how the Gawker people hurt his only way of making money since he can't be ring active. It's on youtube look it up.

What we do know about Chet, is that Chet in dress shoes was exactly 1" taller than Michael Jordan in sneakers. Jordan has documented barefoot measurements raging anywhere from 6'4.75" to 6'5.25",,,meaning barefoot Chet was nothing less than a minimum 6'5.75" barefoot...and maybe as much as 6'6.25" ???
er4smiths said on 8/Mar/16
RYAN11 - how can he be 6'4" now, when he is dwarfed by 6'5" Joe Manganiello and Peyton Manning, noticeably shorter than 6'4" Troy Aikman and David Hasselhoff and 6'3" Snoop Dogg. This is where my issue is. These aren't speculations, they are backed up by photographic evidence. He is also barely taller than John Cena, same height has 6'2" Rock etc etc. I'd really like to have a grown up conversation on this and see where you're coming from.
me said on 8/Mar/16
No way Studd was only 6'5". He was the same height as Rick Barry. As far as Chet goes he and Hogan are close in height with Hogan edging him out. Hogan from the get go said Andre had at least 6" on him. Hogan always claimed 6'7" but even at 6'6" that puts Andre right where Rob has him and Hogan as well. For Chet to say 3" taller is ridiculous. That would mean the same difference between Hogan and Andre and we know that isn't even close. That is if Chet actually said that. Maybe he had an issue with Vince. Regardless he is way off.
straightahead said on 7/Mar/16
@bigmike74 i rather trust solid evidence instead of your hyped expectations as a kid (no offense) but we have a peak Hogan with 6'4 Jimbo Covert and 6'2 Otis Wilson, and he couldnt even look above Otis head...

@RYAN11, really? im not the one claiming that a larger than life wrestler was heavier (320 as u claim) than his BILLED weight(!) which was approx 300, so if anyone is posting garbage here, its you. I bet you believe his fairy tales about Andre too, that he was 700 lbs at WM3.

Rob, check out this picture with the ring announcer from WM2, Chet Coppcock, who was a legit 6'6", and Hogan, as well as some other WM2 guys:

@straightahead no i was born in 1970 my tag name has 74 on it for personal reasons that are none of your business. I seen Hogan in Tampa in 1981 at a CWF show. My older brother who is 6'4" was there with us and was shorter than Hogan by a good amount i remember it clearly because i thought damn Hogan can look over the top of Alans head (my brother). A 6'5" guy can't look over a 6'4" mans head as he did Alans.
Boss said on 6/Mar/16
Well Chet says he and Hogan were same height as we already knew. Andre was more than 3" taller than Hogan at Wrestlemania more like 5" and more like 6" when they first met in the late 1970's. Also, Andre almost exclusively wrestled guys 6'6 range or more so some accounts just don't add up. We have Ernie Ladd, Killer Kowalski, Bobo Brazil, Don Leo, Big John Studd, Giant Baba, Rene DeLartesse, Buddy Baker, Blackjack Mulligan, Tyler Mane and his partner, One Man Gang, Giant Haystacks, Wilt Chamberlain and more around Chet's height or up to several inches taller.

Here’s Chet Coppock’s response to my email several years ago
Click Here We don’t know if Chet was a legit 6’6” either although if he claims he was a little taller than Michael Jordan, he’s not a flat 6’5”.
___________________________________________

You also don't know that Chet Choppock wasn't a little over 6'6" and just rounded down.
straightahead said on 6/Mar/16
JT, thats a another proof. Its kinda amazing (or not..) how he never can pull off any taller than 6'4 next to ppl of KNOWN height...

dustin, Akeem/OMG was more like 6'3 at the very best, the rest is footwear if he appeared taller since he was not taller than the 6'3 Ottman. Studd with a asumed footwear advantage, appeared same height as 6'4 1/2 Fralic. Studd could actually only had been 6'4...
RYAN11 said on 5/Mar/16
Er4smiths, you are either in desperate need of glasses or you just like stirring up stuff. If you ever really want to debate his height peak or now you need to start making somewhat realistic comments. He is around 6'4" now, saying that for a peak height is just foolish and cannot be taken seriously. Hogan was over 6'6" barefoot in his 20's, the only debatable subject is whether he was really 6'7" or was he just really close and rounded up. I personally ally saw him up close in 1986 and again met him in 2014. He was at least 320lbs and over 6'6" back then, he has lost size mostly in his legs and somewhat in his arms, chest and shoulders which is natural given his age and the fact he doesn't loft really heavy weight like he used to. He is easily still around 290 lbs now, I've been around many guys in the 6'2-3" range in the gym who are bulked up and he still is considerably larger. Straightahead, everyone should simply stop responding to anything you post as it is complete garbage.
Boss said on 4/Mar/16
The reason Chet's left shoulder looks higher is because he he closer to the camera.
dustin said on 4/Mar/16
er4smiths, you can clearly see the top of hogans bald head, Chet's head is harder to judge because he has puffy hair. if his head were shaved you could see that the top of his head is pretty even with Hogans. Chets shoulders may look higher, but Hogan has a large head. Footwear advantage cannot be assumed in any pic that you cannot clearly see footwear. I dont see 2 inches. In fact i do not see inches at all. I see a half inch difference at the most in that pic. Judging a prime 80's early 90's Hulk against Tenta, Zeus, Jake Roberts, Chet, Hillbilly Jim, One Man Gang, Muhammad Ali, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Belzar, King Kong Bundy and countless others, A 6'5"-6'6" Hulk Hogan is what we have in the his prime. Obviously he is alot shorter these days.
bigmike74 said on 4/Mar/16
Both pics with Chett show a 6'6" Hogan and Chett they both are leaning and camera angle is in favor of Chett. I showed the pics to my sister in law who does photography for a living and she confirmed that if that pic with just Chett and Hogan the angle is a 28 degree tilt in favor of Chett if you square it out Hogan would be taller not by much but taller none the least. More than likely footwear advantage goes to Hogan by just assuming but take the footwear away same height around the board. 6'6" peak Rob nailed it.
straightahead said on 4/Mar/16

I find that "most" people are not good judges of height. I pride myself in it, and have always been obsessed with height since I was a little boy. I would ask tall people there heights and so on.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

I think its a little funny bud that you think you are any more qualified than anybody else to judge how tall a person is that you have never met or seen in person, just because you've been "obsessed with height since you were a kid." You can be proud of yourself all you want for your own perceived ability to guess height from pictures, but its not likely to ever convince someone like myself who has seen Hogan during his peak height days that he was 6'3.5". I saw with my own eyes that Hogan was taller than my 6'4"+ Grandfather.
straightahead said on 3/Mar/16
bigmike74 i asume you was born in 1974, so you was only 6 back in 1980 when you claim Hogan was 6'6 and in his peak. Im amazed how a 6 year old boy could do an estimation like that, or did you measure him? (against what/who?)

The latest pic of Hogan and Chet is nice but pointless for estimating height, as we can’t see the footwear, stances, or level of the floor. Hogan very easily could have been wearing cowboy boots with Chet, just as he is here Click Here wearing that same American Made shirt. Rob has George Peppard at 6’0” although he’s around 57 here with Hogan and may have lost a little height. Regardless, Hogan's nowhere near 6'8" in cowboy boots with Peppard.
dustin said on 3/Mar/16
Studd had more than 2 inches on Superman. More like at least 3 or more, and his head is tilted forward sightly. Also Christopher Reeve is listed as 6'3.5" on this sight. He is that at the very least. I just dont see a 6'5" Studd. He was similar in height with Akeem. Maybe a bit taller. No way is Akeem only 6'5".
bigmike74 said on 2/Mar/16
Hogan has never been 6'8" as he was billed maybe in thick boots but more like 6'7.5 -.75" but barefeet prime he was every bit of 6'6" and more than likely hit 6'7" right out of bed but that we don't know. A 1980 Hogan was 6'6" a 2016 Hogan is in my opinion from seeing him and knowing my own height around 6'3.5 - 6'4". The people who haven't seen him should stfu! Your opinions are bs and you are simply put idiots and your measuring skills need working on.
dustin said on 2/Mar/16
Boss, that is the pic i was referring to. Also in regards to the picture er4smiths is referring to, you cannot see the footwear so how can you tell that he has thicker soles?
er4smiths said on 2/Mar/16
@Boss - that's a great pic, thanks for posting. When I look at that pic - my first thought is Chet looks at least 2" taller. Let me explain before you assume I'm crazy.
Chet looks leaned down into Hogan a bit (common pose lots of people do) and also if you look at Chet's shoulders (obviously his left) they are higher. I think we
can safely assume Hogan has the footwear advantage, and also since this photo is surrounded by a black frame, if you enlarge the pic and get the top of Chet's head to
touch the black frame line - you see a nearly 2" gap from the top of Hogan's head to the line. To me, Hogan looks around 6'4" tops in this pic. I am actually ok with a 6'4" peak Hogan. What do you all think?
er4smiths said on 2/Mar/16
bigmike74 - I'm not calling you a liar. I don't know you, and assume you're probably a good guy (even though you name the state I live in and call me an idiot). I can also assume, we are all here to find out the truth when it comes to Hogan's peak barefoot height and current barefoot height. As I have told ryan11 - you bring up a very valid point about seeing Hulk in person as opposed to having never. I don't disagree, I just think there is more to it than that. There are so many factors that can come into play, the least of which, is one person's observation skills compared to the next. Witnesses of a crime can have completely different accounts or descriptions of what happened or what the person looked like, how tall etc. Also, in a lot of pictures WWF/WWE were very calculating on how they stacked wrestlers up with each other. Having them stand on boxes, stand closer to the camera, film at certain angles to make it look like they were taller or larger, wear lifts, etc etc. I'm 6'2" but get told by people
all the time they thought I was 6'3" or 6'4" - I find that "most" people are not good judges of height. I pride myself in it, and have always been obsessed with height since I was a little boy. I would ask tall people there heights and so on.
I am basing my opinion on Hulk's peak and current barefoot height, on tons of pictures with many different people to compare with. I also have a good friend who has met him and shook his hand and spoke to him for over 5 minutes at an Army
event in GA. I have the picture to prove it. My friend is 5'10" and Hulk was no more than 4 inches taller. He described Hulk as seeming like a 6'1" guy. I've said it till I'm blue in the face - WWF/WWE are highly skilled at creating larger than life
figures with their superstars. For example billing 6'1" guys as 6'4" and by far embellishing weights too. They billed Kane up to 7ft tall at one point. In reality he is 6'4.5"-6'5" - look at the pic with Vince Vaughn - same height. So you can get angry
and name call etc - but that doesn't bode well for you proving your argument. We all really need to start being civil and acting like fellow height and wrestling fans. Not out to prove each other wrong but to come together and join forces and resources
and prove once and for all Hulk Hogan's barefoot peak and current height.
Sincerely
er4smiths - from TN
straightahead said on 1/Mar/16
bigmike74 i guess your so frustrated because some of us dont buy your crap and lies, so you must make it personal with name callings. Again, how will Hogan become taller when/if someone met him? He never had 3 inches on 6'3 Ottman, he had barely 1 on him, he wasnt taller than 6'5 Tenta he was actually shorter. He wasnt taller than 6'4 Jimbo Covert, and neither did he have more than 2 inches on 6'2 Otis Wilson. He peaked 6'4 tops at the very most and thats it.

For the record dustin, Studd had 2 inches on the 6'3 Reeve and he was BARELY taller than 6'4 1/2 Fralic, so er4smiths is right on - 6'5.

bigmike74 said on 29/Feb/16
So basically everyone on here who has met Hogan shook his hand and stood face to face with him weather in shoes or like some say flip flops all say 6'3.5 - 6'4.5 are liars if you go by what the 2 guys who haven't met him say. I met the guy he's taller than me. Er4smiths &straightahead have never met the guy and compare pictures which most of them show him as tall as Rod has him listed. I personally think those 2 are the same idiot guy from Tennessee who should have been pillowed. To all who have met him your opinions are valid for those who haven't yours are nothing more that BS.
dustin said on 29/Feb/16
Studd did tower over Christopher Reeve, and was as tall as Rick Barry after several years in wrestling and over 350lbs of bodyweight. The photo of Hogan and Chet i saw, they were side by side and their looked to be maybe a 1/4 of an inch difference.I guess Tenta, Zeus and Hillbilly jim were all 6'2" to 6"3 as well? Get outa here with all that. 6'9" Andre? keep dreaming dude.
er4smiths said on 29/Feb/16
sorry Dustbin, not a chance. Chet was leaning and behind Hogan in the pics. PLUS Hogan was wearing much thicker soles. Why are you guys so dense when it comes to camera angles or footwear advantage??
If John Studd was 6'7'-7.5" - he would tower over Bill Fralic and Christopher Reeve AND Rick Barry. Studd was 6'5" tops barefoot. Hogan was around 6'3.5" barefoot and Andre was 6'9" barefoot - obvious as snow.
Hogan is NOT anywhere close to 6'4" right now. I love the "he crouches down or stands with his knees bent" excuse. If he stood up he'd be 6'5"? lmao He was dwarfed by 6'5" Joe M. 6'6" Dennis Rodman 6'4" Troy Aikman
Now how about all the pics side by side with 5'8"-5'11" guys where he barely looks 6'2" at best?? RIGHT - that's because HE IS. I agree he has lost some height - everyone does with age and of course with certain surgeries etc.
So 6'3.5" to 6'2" is more than appropriate.
straightahead said on 28/Feb/16
We have a peak Hogan struggling with 6'4 next to 6'4 Jim Covert and 6'2 Otis Wilson, we have Hillbilly Jim next to Covert as well, and he doesnt look taller than 6'4 either - with no angle excuses to use in neither of the pictures. Tenta was listed 6'5 (which is 196 cm) as well as 198 cm, in this case its common sense to go by the lower height, especially since he had no way near 3 inches on the 6'3 Ottman (Typhoon/Tugboat)
Dustin said on 27/Feb/16
The prime Hogan height discussion should be over after seeing the Chet Coppock pics. He was 6'5".5-6'6". Game over. Now all the Studd and Andre heights can have a definite starting point. Prime Studd was 6'7"-6'7.5" and Andre was never under 6'11" while still wrestling.

@bigmike74 so Hogan will become taller when i met him?! Some ppl in here have met British Bulldog, they estimate him to be everything from 5'9 to 5'11. The funny thing is that one of them who met both claims that Hogan was 6'6 while still says Bulldog was 5'9... but pictures proves that there was no way near 9 inches beween them (the difference was 6 inches - when Hogan weared cowboy boots). So i rather trust my eyes, common sense, and ton's of video and photo evidence over some biased fanboys wet dream.

Hey Rob, what's your opinion on Hogan and Chet Coppock?
Editor Rob: they may well have been pretty close, near 6ft 6
Boss said on 24/Feb/16
We have Hogan in his prime with 6'6 Chet Coppock in his prime and Hogan is in 6'6 range peak. Hogan was slightly taller than 6'5+ Hillbilly Jim , 6'5 Tiny Lister, and was as tall or slightly taller than 6'5 3/4 Earthquake John Tenta, 6'6 One man gang. I mean 6'5 Tiny Lister in 2" heels and has slightly better posture and is on his tip toes. Yet they are right around same height in their staredown.
Boss said on 23/Feb/16
Also, when in Zues character Lister would walk on around on his tip toes to appear as tall as possible. Lister was billed as 6'9" monster.
Boss said on 23/Feb/16
Lister wore 3" platforms in No Holds Barred. Lister wore 2" heels in WWF. So Lister was 6'7 in his boots in his WWF run.
bigmike74 said on 22/Feb/16
@straightahead are you just that ignorant or are your statements just your way of trying to be funny? Until you meet Hogan your incompetent moronic statements should be viewed as ignorance. I have met him and apparently so have others on here and every single person who says they have all say the same thing 6'3.5 to 6'4.5. So until you stand face to face with this man you and er4smiths should not comment because it's all bulls&#t.
RYAN11 said on 22/Feb/16
Zeus had a huge footwear advantage, those boots had huge heels giving Tiny a 3-4 inch boost. Hogan was taller barefoot by a good margin. The other thing nobody seems to notice or remember is how they listed Zues as 6'9" and 330 lbs, but Hogan was noticeably bigger and thicker. Hogan was 6'7", Lister was over 6'5" and with a 3 inch extra boost looked slightly taller than Hogan in ring. As for this Lister said they were the same height, the were close but Hogan had him by over an inch.
Dustin said on 18/Feb/16

Both Dan Spivey and Bill Fralic are closer to camera than Hillbilly Jim. 6'6 Dan Spivey is slightly taller than Jim an 6'5 Bill Fralic is slightly shorter than Jim. So Hillbilly Jim looks the 6'5.5 that Rob has him listed at.

He is no way near 6'5 1/2 next to Jimbo Covert, he barely even looks 6'4... and theres no closer/further away excuses for you to use in that picture.
Boss said on 18/Feb/16
Lister had a huge footware advantage over Hogan and they were in WWF both around the same height. Zues had huge heels on his ring boots. Hogan would have been taller than Lister barefoot. Zues would also stand on his tip toes to look as tall as possible and wore platform boots in the movie.

Justin said on 17/Feb/16
What I can't work out is that back in the 1980s Hogan appeared shorter than Tony Lister aka Zeus by a inch or two and Tony Lister is listed at 6ft5. It's a head scratcher

Both Dan Spivey and Bill Fralic are closer to camera than Hillbilly Jim. 6'6 Dan Spivey is slightly taller than Jim an 6'5 Bill Fralic is slightly shorter than Jim. So Hillbilly Jim looks the 6'5.5 that Rob has him listed at.

Steve said on 16/Feb/16
Boss, those photos are pretty good, I always thought Hogan was between 6'5 and 6'6. If Chet Coppock was 6'6 then hogan certainly looks around the same height (from those photos). It's quite possible Hogan was 6'6' up until the mid to late 1980's. So Hogan at 6'6 looks to be quite accurate. He clearly wasn't over 6'6.

Here we go again... you bringing up one billed height just to compare with another billed height. Only way for Thor to look 6'4 is if Randy was 6'1... (but Randy was a tad shorter than Bret Hart so good luck with that one) and Thor doesnt even look 6'2 next to 6'4 tops Hogan.
Straightahead said on 15/Feb/16
Who cares if Chet is leaning and appears to be taller than Jimbo when he is leaning as much as well?! Hogan who is NOT leaning is NOT taller than LEANING 6'4 Jimbo here (and neither is HBJ) and thats the point. Are you really this desperate that you only apply leaning excuses to one of them even if others in the same picture is leaning as well?!

And no, Jim is not taller than Fralic, who is 6'4 1/2. Fralic edges him out even in his more relaxing standing position.

RYAN11 said on 15/Feb/16
There you go again Straightahead, you post that 6'5 3/4" was an error when it has been posted here numerous times and is the one true measurement of Earthquake barefoot. The photos show beyond any doubt that the then 35 year old Hulk still had over an inch on him. Hogan was 6'7" before starting to loose height, the pictures of him and Macho with the 6'4" Thor also prove it again. Look at the picture with Ben Davidson, Hogan had cowboy boots on but so did Davidson and Ben's were thicker heeled. Despite that Hogan was within an inch of the 6'8" Davidson. Anything claimed less than 6'6" and a strong one at that for peak Hogan is a joke. He still stands over 6'4" today when he strightens up. I have seen him up close in 1987 and again in late 2014, I can assure you he has lost a lot of height but is still a very tall and huge man easily weighing 290lbs or more still today.

I use to think he was 6'8 as a kid as the WWE listed him back then ..until he would cut promos with 6'7 Dennis Rodman in WCW he was about 2 inches shorter standing with rodman

Boss, That screenshot of Tenta and Hogan is laughable, are you even serious? everyone can take a screenshot from a video the very moment one appears as tall as possible. And btw Tenta was also measured to 6'5 (196 cm) in Japan so the 198 cm (6'5 3/4) is a typo, and it confirms as a typo since he never had no way near almost 3 inches on the 6'3 Click Here Ottman, actually he had barely 2 on him. And why do you compare Hogan with BILLED 6'5 1/2 Hillbilly Jim? Lets compare Hogan with someone of known height, like the confirmed 6'4 Jimbo Covert: Click Here and here is Jimbo Covert and Jim: Click Here

So it confirms that Hogan and Jim were both 6'4 tops peak. Forget anything taller especially for Hogan, if he ever appeared taller it was because of his lifts.

Straightahead, I never insulted you. I said an idiot would try and say Hogan never lost much height. Are you that person??? I never said you were, I addressed you directly about Salming, he never had the surgeries or injuries Hogan has. Wrestlers who have long careers and do lots of roids and heavy lifting loose tremendous height after 40, Superstar was another. Sorry your feelings got hurt, read the posts and understand them. You have to have thick skin to be on here.
184.3cm (Night) said on 11/Feb/16
6'5.5" Next to a 6'2.5" Ali. I see 3 inches maybe a fraction more. He was a solid 6'5 at peak just as guys his size claimed. Tiny Lister (also 6'5) claims that Hogan was the same. Nash claimed he was looking at the top of Hogan's head, so at least 4 inches - 6'9.5" peak Nash > 6'5 range Hogan.
bigmike74 said on 10/Feb/16
I have done internet searches of that photo shoot and there are pictures that show full body shots with Hogan and Ali as well as the others on the front row. Hogan was barefoot and in shorts standing on a box with Ali. Straightahead you are making yourself look very uneducated and like a height hater.

Anyone posting a peak Hogan anything under 6'5 is just trolling. Even at 6'5 he would have to be wearing internal lifts because he was taller than several 6'5" guys in his ring boots.
Boss said on 10/Feb/16
Hogan is wearing wrestling boots not cowboy boots and looks 6'6 even if Ali was down to 6'2 at this point.
Straightahead said on 9/Feb/16
Rob why do you allowed thse insults from RYAN11?

Ryan, no one cares about your cry excuses when it comes to Hogan so go and cry somewhere else, and Salming had 100's of more surgeries than what Hogan ever had. Such as legs, hips, back, etc. But no height loss from it!
Alex said on 9/Feb/16
Never thought Hogan was 203 cm, neither during his prime. Most probably he was 196-197 cm, he always looked shorter next to Kevin Nash (206 cm). Now, he should be 191 cm. His height lost is tremendous, he probably lost like a good 5 cm in all these years. Surely his back problems are the main cause.
bigmike74 said on 8/Feb/16
The Ali picture shows his peak height.
Nice picture.
James B said on 8/Feb/16
But is he wearing wrestling boots with Ali?
RYAN11 said on 8/Feb/16
Boss, that picture of Hogan with Ali is not useful except to say Hogan would have a couple more inches on him if both were standing straight. Ali is standing straight up, but anyone can easily see Hogan's legs in the back ground are spread wide and bent which would lower him considerably. When in the ring Hogan was over a half foot taller in his wrestling boots.

Boss said on 6/Feb/16
Hogan with 6'2,5" Muhammad Ali. Peak Hogan looks 6'6 range with Ali.

Why do you asume that a 40+ year old Ali still was 6'2 1/2? he could very well been down to UNDER 6'2 and Hogan was wearing cowboy boots as usually, thats 100% for sure. Its kinda amazing, as soon Hogan doesnt seems to be tall enough = height loss excuses (even in his 30's LOL) But when comparing SOMEONE ELSE to Hogan, those ppl never shrunk?!
Straightahead said on 8/Feb/16
Actually one man gang always looked 6'3 range, forget anything thats even close to 6'6
RYAN11 said on 7/Feb/16
Straightahead, Borje Salmon? Are you frigging kidding me lol.. Salming for those on here if they don't know was a great Swedish born NHL defenceman for the Leafs. He had surgery to put over 100 stiches in his face after getting cut by a skate blade. He never did steroids, lifted heavy weights for years, nor did he take the kind of spinal damage landing on your tailbone 600 times a year or getting slammed does. Hogan has had multiple surgeries where they shaved off bone from his knee and hip joints before getting his hips and knees replaced. He also had vertibrae removed from his back before getting spinal fusion surgery. As Big Mike points out, only a complete idiot would say you don't loose at least 3-4 inches of height from all that damage, age and procedures. Hogan was well over six and a half feet tall barefoot in his 20's, now 6' 4" but nothing less. His bent knees and poor posture is what makes him appear shorter and it's just that simple.

hogan?

he was noticeably (as in a couple of inches) taller than steve austin at mania 30. i met austin a number of times and he is for sure taller than i am and i was measured 180.5cm barefoot by my doctor last summer so the only way hogan is weak 6'1 is if he was wearing lifts with austin or on his tiptoes...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Feb/16
He claimed 6ft4½ recently on Chris Jericho's podcast and also said that he used to be 6ft7
Editor Rob: he's claiming to be literally almost the same height as joe manganiello. I think it is a bit of a stretch really. But then, if he was measured in sneakers he may well have got that mark.

@Straightahead
It makes a big difference comparing photos and television clips to a face to face meeting. Your statement in tegards to fusions is incorrect. I work as a life flight EMT and and compression or removal or even shaving of set bone will degrade your height that is a fact that any Surgeon or Orthopaedic Doctor will tell you. I play cards every other week with 2 specialists and both have said this to be true. Decompression of the spine or neck is the same as airing up a tire. Fully aired it is firm deflated it is smaller the Human body is no different. So again if you have access to the literature you would know I'm right. As for my height observation a 6-2 man in shoes would not look over me at 6-1 in shoes as he did. He was atleast 2.5 to 3 inches taller so 6-3.5 barefoot is the minimum he could be now I'm leaning towards 6-4. I strongly suggest you do your research before spouting non fact based opinions.
bigmike74 said on 3/Feb/16
To All.
My observation is based on my height. Not pictures or hearsay. He is absolutely not 6-2 anything under
6-3.5 now is just bad estimating skills or inappropriate ignorance on the posters behalf. I could see how a 6-3 listing could be observed due to how Hogan stands but he is taller. I thought 6-4 but nothing under 6-3.5 now and 6-6 prime.
Boss said on 3/Feb/16
Studd was 41 years old with Barry and Studd has his head tilted down. Studd, considering his size and 20 years of pro wrestling would not be at his peak height with Barry.

straightahead said on 3/Feb/16
bigmike74 no i havent, but i dont understand what differences it would make? ppl doesnt grow (or shrink) just because we met them... and theres some posters in here who has met Bulldog (Davey Smith) and while some of them gives him 5'9, others give him 5'10 or even close to 5'11. So as we can see, how tall someone appears in YOURS eyes is your opinion only and the same man can appear much taller, or shorter, for someone else. And please dont go there with those height-loss-surgery-excuses. Hockey player Borje Salming have had 100's of more surgeries than Hogan from top to toe but havent lost any noticable height at all, and neither has Hogan.

JT and straightahead seem to be the only people that have good sense and observation skills on this forum. I mean Rick Barry was probably 6'6" NBA listings are always inflated. Studd is OBVIOUSLY shorter - so if we are being generous we will give him 6'5" - so as Steve pointed out below - Hogan was 1.5" shorter than Studd so that's a 6'3.5" peak Hogan. Then add into the equation what bigmike74 said with his medical expertise about spinal surgery - you've got a 6'2" Hogan today!
_____________________________________________-

Again buddy, you are making guesses and assumptions on people you have never seen. You may think my observation skills aren't very good, but I know I saw Hogan around 1980 when he was in the AWA standing 2 or 3 feet away, I could see he was taller than my Grandfather who was still over 6'4" at the time. No pictures or videos with weird angles, lighting or hocus pocus, or any other unknowns, to try to take into consideration, or guess about. Just plain old seeing two people in person standing close to each other and saying, yep that one is taller than the other. Peak Hogan was between 6'5" and 6'5.5" in my opinion. Studd to me never really appeared a whole lot taller than Hogan. My guess is Studd would have been 6'6" to 6'6.5", but that is just a guess as I have never seen Studd in person.
James B said on 2/Feb/16
Yeah 6'6 is fine for studd judging how he looks with rick
Dustin said on 2/Feb/16
In the Rick Barry pic, you can't see the footwear and his hat makes it hard to tell where the top of his head is. To many variables to make an accurate assessment. In the Fralic promo, a 6'4.75" Fralic with even 1/2 footwear looked almost a full inch shooter than Studd. 6'7" for studd seems right to me. He was bigger than a prime Hogan too by at least one inch
dustin said on 2/Feb/16
I have a question and a request... and i am sure this has already been brought up, but why is there not a Big John Studd page? there is so much discussion on the Hogan,Andre, Sid and every other wrestlers page. I think his height discussion would be one of the more debatable ones. I request a Big John Studd Celebheights page!!!!!!!!

Can't be this pic Click Here Studd’s closer to the camera and a good inch shorter than 6’7” Rick Barry. Where’s the pic showing them to be the same height?
bigmike74 said on 1/Feb/16
@straightahead have you met Hogan? I have and it looks like from this thread others have as well. Hogan does not appear to be his tallest or prime height at this point. With that being said your 6-4 prime theory is complete nonsense he's 6-3.5 to 6-4 now and with the massive damage his body has undertook with back surgeries, hip surgeries and neck surgeries there is no way he is still prime the man has had fusions done if you are ignorant to what that is it's when they remove and fuse your spine. So removing vertebra 3 seperate times will drop you down a good 1 - 1.5 to 2 inches and then the poor posture that comes with hip replacement will drop you down to so minimum 2 inches more like 3 of list height. Please try again your statement is asinine. Cheers
Steve said on 31/Jan/16
Studd at 6'5 is impossible. Hogan was at least 6'5.25, that's an absolute minimum. Studd had at least 1.5 inches on Hogan. Studd would be at least 6'6 1/2 at his peak, if not 6'7. So those who put Studd at 6'5 peak are dreaming and need to wake up!
straightahead said on 31/Jan/16
Here we go again with the "6'4 bossman" fantasies. Face the fact instead that he was shorther than Ottman, who was 6'3 tops; Click Here

It getting ridiculous even to discuss this since some ppl in here obviously cannot wake up from dreamland...

Bossman 6'2 1/2
Ottman 6'3
Hogan 6'4
straightahead said on 29/Jan/16
denali, wouldnt it make more sense if Studd was the one on his tip toes? but logic suggests, since we never can see their footwear we must asume neither was. However, Fralic measured up better to Studd than what a peak Hogan ever did. 6'4 for Hogan and 6'4 1/2 for Fralic is right on!
just because said on 28/Jan/16
er4smiths said on 23/Jan/16
weekly wake up call from dreamland guys - Studd was 6'5" tops. He was eye to eye with 6'4 Bill Fralic and noticeably shorter than 6'7" Rick Barry. NBA heights are inflated so Barry could be 6'6". Point is AGAIN that WWE inflates heights and weights. I read an article the other day where it talked about CM Punk losing 3" and 50lbs when joining UFC. The point is they didn't inflate his stats.
Hulk Hogan is MUCH shorter than Peyton Manning, Joe D. and stacks up like a 6'2" guy at best standing next to the likes of Barry Sanders, Todd Chrisley, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Arnold S. and the list goes on and on

Studd had an inch on fralic and that was with fralic standing at his tallest, the pic i saw with studd and barry they where the same height
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 28/Jan/16
Bossman looks solid 6´4" in JT´s comparison, wich is pretty spot on - no indication for chunky footwear there
Bossman also looked 6´4" next to 6´4" Tugboat
Maybe he lost a bit height later because he didn´t look much over 6´3" next to John Tenta in WCW

Studd always looked a solid 1" up to 1.5" taller than Hogan, about a half inch shorter than 6´6.75"-6´7" Sid Eudy

Bill Fralic was 6'5" & 285-288 lbs Barry was a legit 6'7"...many NBA players do have heights listed in their shoes ...however, many have their accurate barefoot heights listed as well...especially from 1960-1980...majority of those NBA heights were very accurate! Studd & Barry where within a 1/4" of each other. Peak Studd was 6'7"...when he got older & his weigh jumped from 300 to 350 lbs...it appears he's body settled into about 6'6.5"...Studd in the late 80's to early 90's had 1.5" on 6'5" Fralic...close to 2" when Bill wasn't trying to tip toe!!! Studd had 2.5" to 2.75" on 6'4" Christopher Reeves when both had on equal footwear "Tuxedo dress shoes"!!! In the 1970's Ernie Ladd never EVER had Studd by more than inch...in any footwear at anytime. Ladd was 6'8" & change barefoot @ his peak...and he was within a 1/4" of 6'7" Barry. For anyone to try & say Big John was ever anything less than 6'6.5" is just moronic!
