He's losing more and more height (more hip replacements, back and knee surgeries and neck fused). He's at best 6'2" today:

@James B: he couldn't have been much more in tip top peak maybe 6'5.5. One poster's father below met him in the 80s (Bobby3342) and said he had him by an inch he was 6'6 himself. Hogan wore boots a lot and another wrestler called him 6'5.
James B said on 21/Aug/16
No legit 6'5 peak

Saying 6'5 max is underestimating him.
Jim Hopper said on 21/Aug/16
Today 6-2.5" . Peak 6-5" max
JT said on 20/Aug/16
Click Here A little taller but not too much.
freak said on 17/Aug/16
Yes 6.3 today or maybe 6.35 spot on Rob..6.6 at peak hell yeah..
miko said on 17/Aug/16
Hogan is easily taller in that photo with Lou, are you blind?

Easy 6'3 in 2016.
Canson said on 16/Aug/16
Straightahead's estimate is in line with Ali Baba's (who met Ferrigno). He said 6'2-6'2.5. I can buy a peak Lou at most 192cm (maybe 6'3.5) possibly lowball peak 6'3.25 and an absolute peak Hogan at a solid 197 (afternoon) maybe 196-197
Johan said on 16/Aug/16
Hogan looks 2 cm taller than Lou.

Hogan - 190-191 cm today about 6'3"

Lou - 188-189 cm Just over 6'2".
RP said on 15/Aug/16
Lou & Terry look the exact same height in that pic!!! Actually analyze closely ...line up top of grads minus Lou's hair, Hogan's sunglasses...then line up eyes, brows, nose & mouth's...Hogan actually comes out 1/4" (0.25") taller ...even with his slight lean & brad in his artificial hip. BTW...isn't this pic a year old? This pic tells me Hogan: 6'3" to 6'3.25" & Lou: 6'2.75 to 6'3" ...BTW: peak Lou was a weak 6'4"...more like 6'3.75 (true barefoot) according to my friend and former pro bodybuilder John DeFendis. He said Lou was right at 6'5" in sneakers ...barely 6'4" barefoot...more like 6'3.75"
bigmike74 said on 15/Aug/16
@Danimal find the full body shot of that pic Hogan is bending his legs in a crouched down position and Lou is standing straight. From what i see even in this pic Hogan edges him out so add a inch if Hogan straightened up.
straightahead said on 15/Aug/16
Danimal, well Hogan is still very close to 6'3 even to this day, Ferrigno perhaps 6'2 1/2. BTW impressive arms, who would you pick in a arm wrestling match between the two?
Danimal said on 15/Aug/16
Rob, you didn't post my comment?
Aza said on 14/Aug/16
Agree with Rampage...... Pretty close if not bang on 6'6 peak.
Danimal said on 14/Aug/16
WELL, it's OFFICIAL. Lou Ferrigno is TALLER than HOGAN TODAY!!!!!!! RECENT PIC!!! Hogan is MAX 6'2" today!!!!!!!!! Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
I think he was legitimately 6ft6 in the evening peak
Canson said on 11/Aug/16
@Miko: your estimate is a good one and is the most believable. 198 out of bed 196 at night or 197.5/195.5ish
bigmike74 said on 11/Aug/16
Hogan got out of bed around 6'6.5" to 6'7" and was between 6'6" & 6'5.75" during the day prime. Now probably gets out of bed at 6'4.5" and walks around during the day at 6'4" to 6'3.5" depending on time of day.

6'6 fresh out of bed is the highest I can go for Hulk.

Likely closer to 6'5 throughout the day, 6'3 today.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16
Tenta was 0.25-0.5" taller than Hogan, there is no point in a fight where Tenta stood as straight as Hogan (example around fingerpoint/Hulkup).

Tenta was taller next to Typhoon/Tugboat and Big Bossman than Hogan was...
Each Tenta-Mene Gene comparison shows him taller than Hogan next to Mene Gene....

I found the actual original photo of Andre, Wilt and Arnold. The black and white pic we have been looking at all these years is a copy of this original photo. This tells a different story.

Dustin said on 5/Aug/16
So I went back and watched the match between Hogan and Earthquake, Hogan to my eye was slightly taller. Footwear looked similar. I feel the 6'6" peak is a good estimation.
straightahead said on 4/Aug/16
@Jim Hopper said on 3/Aug/16
Tenta said in a Japanese wrestling magazine I had in the mid 90s that he was 6-5" flat in socks,same as Hogan was. Also said Hulk would wear slightly beefed up cowboy boots giving him a good 2 and 1/2 to 3" inch increase on his 6-5". So yeah he was near 6-8" in boots. End of the interview Tenta claimed wwf bulled on heights massively,Ultimate warrior was billed @ 6-4" and Tenta said he was a shade over 6-1" in socks.

---
Like i said earlier Tenta was indeed listed 6'5 in sumo so that only confirms that. The 6'5 3/4 measurment could have been in shoes, or its simply a typo, or just bs. Either way he was tops 6.5. So if they can find a way to list someone taller, then why not? just look at UFC, they are competing barefeet but being measured in shoes, + rounds up.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Danimal: I doubt he's lost 3 or 4". That's far fetched. But Probably 2" maybe a hair over. I can imagine at his absolute peak (prior to the wrestling career) he may have been 6'5.5 making him near the 197cm line (near lowest) then 6'5 for the remainder of his prime and now maybe 6'3-6'3.5. But out of bed, this guy couldve easily in his true prime been 199cm maybe 6'6.5ish and lost an inch.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Dicksock: your estimate for Hulk looks good. I'm an advocate of him being somewhere between 6'5-6'5.5 prime. Maybe prior to wrestling he would've been a legit 196.5-197 guy and Prob 196.2-196.5 in the 80s. adds up to what a poster below who's father is 6'6 and 6'5.75 at his lowest and met him said).

Hogan & Earthquake Tenta always basically appeared the exact same height to me from 1989-1991 when they'd match up face to face.
25% of the time Hogan may have looked 1/4 to 1/2 inch taller...and 25% of the time Tenta would look 1/4 to 1/2 taller than Hogan...but, 50% & the overwhelming majority of the time, the two men looked the exact same height. Sumo's get measures barefoot...Tenta was 6'5-7/8" @ age 23...by his late 30's he was most likely 6'5-1/2" @ best after carrying around 420 to 450 lbs for 15 plus years. Wouldn't even rule out a flat 6'5" for Tenta by age 40 @ 420-450 lbs of compression.
straightahead said on 2/Aug/16
dustin; thats not a picture showing Hogan to be taller, thats just a captured moment where Hogan appeared taller. Why dont watch the match instead? Tenta is the taller one.
RP said on 2/Aug/16
Docksock is spot on with Hogan! 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" peak barefoot height!
dustin said on 2/Aug/16
Earthquake could have been measured barefoot as well. And if anyone can show me a picture of Tenta being 1" taller than Hogan i will be more than open to changing my opinion. The 1990 pictures of Hogan and Quake during their feud shows Hogan to be taller. Not by much, but taller nonetheless
dicksock said on 2/Aug/16
Earthquake was actually referenced as 6'5.95" (6'6"):
Click Here

He was 198cm and that was wrongly converted to 6'5.75". It is really 6'5.95".

Here is him next to Hogan:
Click Here
Click Here (looks slightly tilted in Quake's favor if you look at the angle of the rope)

Again, both 6'5" Tiny Lister and the 6'6" Chet Coppock (ring announcer from WM 2) claimed 6'5"-6'6" for Hogan (Lister claimed 6'5" and Coppock claimed 6'5"-6'6"). Their claims combined with all the overwhelming visual evidence proves Hogan was 6'5"-6'6" in his prime. I think 6'5.5" prime and 6'3.5" now would be an ideal listing here.
James B said on 31/Jul/16
Earthquake could have been measured in the morning or even in shoes at 6'5.75.
Karl said on 30/Jul/16
There was a commercial recently with both Hulk Hogan and Troy Aikman. Aikman had him by about an inch (cant see lower body so no telling what kind of shoe each was wearing) and NFL always had Troy listed at 6'4"
straightahead said on 28/Jul/16
@dustin said on 27/Jul/16
Hogan looked as tall, or even a bit taller than Earthquake John Tenta who was measured as a sumo wrestler at 6'5.75". I think the 6'6" listing is spot on.

Tenta was also listed 6'5 in sumo (196 cm) and he had 1 inch on Hogan.
TY Canson, so does you =)

Canson said on 24/Jul/16
@Bigmike74: actually Straightahead makes good points on some of the people he comments. Hogan's height will always be a topic of debate just because he has been listed as high as 6'8" but described as low as 6'3" that's the case with all of the bigger wrestlers to portray that larger than life image. Example they listed Tyler Mane 6'10 when in his peak he was likely between 6'7 and 6'8 (he's no more than 6'7 these days but not sure if that's his peak or whether he was really 6'8). Ditto for Taker. Was likely only 6'7 range peak not 6'9 or 10. I don't think Hulk was as low as 6'3" peak but I do believe he was (at his absolute peak height 196-197 range tops maybe 6'5.5) and likely still 6'5 into the early 90s. Maybe he rounded up to 6'6 but another wrestler described both he and Hogan as 6'7 in boots 6'5 barefoot and Hogan once described himself as 6'5. Possibly the interview you showed me was a rounded height or (and this part I definitely see) he was 6'6 (198cm) range out of bed and 196 range at night and used morning height

starting wrestling 197cm / 6´5.5"
late 80s/early 90s 196cm / 6´5"
mid 90s / late 90s 195cm / 6´4.5"
since ~2002/2003 191-192cm/ 6´3"-6´3.5"

so overall heightloss after ~35 years of wrestling 2-2.5". The biggest loss was after 2000 when his spine collabsed.

_______________

I would say Hogan was never more than 6'5"-6'5.5" barefoot. He may have worn lifts to make him look taller in the 80s/early 90s. He looked no more than 6'5" as Hollywood Hogan in 1996-1998 even though he wouldn't have lost any real height by that point. He was probably 6'4" by 2002 and 6'3" by the time he got to TNA. Today, he may be 6'3-6'3.5". So, he has lost about 2"-2.5" as you claimed.
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Absolute most in his prime: In the 80s/90s Max 197-198 out of bed and 195-196. He was somewhere between 6'5-6'5.5 maybe in his prime on avg. maybe he could pull 6'6 out of bed back then and an easy 6'7 in cowboy boots. But today he's lucky if he's far over 6'3.

To be fair HHH looks 6'1.5" alot nowadays, he doesn't look as long in the torso anymore.

Austin has admitted himself that he has shrunk over the years because of wrestling and injuries.

Maybe 6ft flat in undercooking him a little but he could be struggling with 6ft 1 today.
miko said on 21/Jul/16
Austin at 6'0 flat and HHH at 6'1 is comedy gold.

HHH still looks 6'2 today when he stands straight.
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@Heightchecker34: my exact estimate. Maybe he was 197 absolute prime and 196 in the 80s always looked 6'5 range and I recall another wrestler calling him 6'5.
bigmike74 said on 20/Jul/16
@straightahead it's time you come out from your parents basement and join us normal people. I think your lack of sun light and fresh air plus the obvious mental set backs has really taken a tole on you. I honestly believe you say and post ignorant pics as a gag because if you really believe the BS you say you are a few cards short of a full deck.
straightahead said on 19/Jul/16
@bigmike74, actually er4smiths has one of the best height estimations on this site. You on the other hand are living in a fantasy world, does 74 stand for your IQ?
heightchecker34 said on 19/Jul/16
For some reason, probably due to his fame and what he has done in the industry, I always believed Hogan was 6'7. Now, that I am a bit older and interested in heights, especially with wrestlers, it is clear he was 6'5. Maybe 6.5'5 peak, but never below. Present day he is around the 6'3 range with surgeries and due to old fashioned time. Essentially he lost around half an inch every decade since 1975.

Have fun thinking that. Just know that nobody here or anywhere else agrees with you. Other than ersmith or whatever his name is. Even if you actually think Trump was never above 6'1", Hogan was still 4" taller. By the way, Slaughter was a legit 6'3". He was about an inch taller than 6'2" HHH in the late 90s. Even the pic you posted of him and Warrior shows Slaughter to be taller. Just look at the top of their heads. Not only that, but Slaughter was giving Warrior a bearhug. Every wrestling fan knows that the guy giving the bearhug is going to losing height from doing the move. Yet, Slaughter was STILL taller than Warrior in that shot even though Warrior was standing straight as possible and Slaughter was leaning in with his knees bent.

Funny how they look the same height. There is plenty of footage that proves Vince was at least 6' in his prime. He could even look a solid 6'1" at times.
----

Warrior was most likely TOPS 6'1 1/2 so he could had been like 6'1, and in that video we can see that Vince was still shorter. Slaughter at 6'3 is pure BS, he only had 1 inch on a leaning Austin and he was also only a tad taller than Roddy Piper (who was only a tad taller than Bret) and no, Slaughter was not taller than HHH, in fact he was edged out by HHH.

_______________

You clearly know nothing. That pic of Slaughter and HHH you posted is about as worthless as the Slaughter/Warrior pic you posted. Watch this video and look from 5:15 to 5:20 for a real comparison. I would recommend pausing at 5:18 and also 5:37.
Click Here

Not only does Slaughter look taller, but HHH has a sizable footwear advantage. I know attention to detail isn't your strong suit, but HHH's heels were pretty chunky in that segment whereas Slaughter was wearing flats. Even if they were the same height in that video, Slaughter would still be taller because of HHHs footwear advantage. Bottom line is Slaughter was 6'2.5" at an absolute minimum and probably 6'3".

Slaughter and 6'2 tops HHH Click Here

So fact is, Slaughter was tops 6'1 1/2 - 6'2 range. and btw Hogan never had 4 inches on him, it was 3 or less. And it even get worse if we listen to posters like Danimal,, who claims Austin was never taller than 6'0 and HHH 6'1 1/4. With these heights to compare with, Slaughter was only 6'1
bigmike74 said on 18/Jul/16
@straightahead are you serious? I don't lie. I tell the truth good, bad or otherwise. You should seriously consider looking into a mental health evaluation it's pretty clear that you are in very much need of help. Your height judgment is equal to Erik Rosenquist a.k.a er4smiths. I have numerous correctional officers and many L.E.O's who come to my gym in Jax Beach, Fl that's where i got my information from not from my personal opinion or guess please get the help you need before 1 day someone will figure out who you are and beat the holly hell out of you for being such a idiot a $$ hole.

Gene Hackman was actually diescribed as 6ft 4 in news articles back in the 80's. Nonsense ofc but he did look 6ft 2 next to the 6ft 4 Christopher Reeve.

Now even with Reeve being a smidge under 6ft 4 I still wouldn't have said that Hackman was much less than 6ft 2.

Hogan looks like a solid 6ft 5.5" inch there next to him. However in his ring attire he usually had big boots and so probably had a footwear advantage. I think he was more 6ft 5-6ft 5.5" personally rather than pushing 6ft 6.

Now with Big John Studd getting a 6ft 6.5" listing I think Hogan should be downgraded as he was an inch or so shorter.

Gene Hackman looked 6'2 next to WHO?! And, being noticeably taller than Vince McMahon isnt equal with being 6'2. 6'0 tops Bret Hart was taller than Vince... theres zero changes for Hogan to have been 6'6. 6'4 1/2 (195 cm) is the maximum height - on a very good day.

Also, those who say 6'1.5" to 6'2" Ultimate Warrior looked taller than or same height as 6'2.5" Slaughter...well, less than 1" separated them anyways ...and never forget...Warrior wore "mild" lifts from 1987-1991 !

Studd loved walking on his tip toes. Mike Mooneyham a wresting journalist said Studd used to wear lifts inside his boots with Andre.
RP said on 15/Jul/16
Rampage: John Studd aka John Minton actually used to be very lean & lanky! Was a college basketball player. His own family & friends have talked openly about how Big John used massive amounts of HGH & steroids to add 100 lbs to his 6'7" frame. 6'6.5" to 6'7"-ish. John used HGH & steroids to go from a 6'7" & 230 lbs power forward to a 330 lbs monster! So, Big John was actually probably more naturally leaner than Hogan...if the two stayed natural...Hogan also has a tendancy to get pudgy in his teens & 20's.

A young and healthy (pre-multiple surgeries) towering 6'2" Gene Hackman and 6'2"/6'3" Donald Trump. He was every bit 6'6" at this stage of his life. Today he's the same height as Gene and Donald were in those pics (him next to a legit 6'4" Troy Aikman)

As usually you are making up heights just to fit in your Hogan 6'6 fantasy. Its the same case everytime time - only Hogan can shrink! but you still imagine a 60+ Gene Hackman to be 6'2 (if he ever was), and since was Trump 6'2-6'3?! he didnt even look 6'1 next to Vince McMahon.

_________________

You need to stop trolling bro. Donald Trump was every bit 6'2" in his prime, and was noticeably taller than Vince McMahon. I don't know how tall Gene Hackman was, but every site, including this one, lists him at 6'2". Hogan had at least 4" on him.

Here's a 60+ year old Donald Trump standing straight with 6'0" Vince McMahon:
Click Here

Even in his 60s, he still looked around 6'2" when standing to his full height. Obviously, he would have been taller in his 30s/40s. The average man shrinks .25"-.5" every decade from 40 onward. Trump is 70 now, so he could have easily been 1" taller in the pic with Hogan (26 years ago) than he is now. Those pics prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hogan was at least 6'5" in his prime and that he could have been 6'6". If you can't accept that, that's your problem.

Anyway Hogan always pulled off looking solid 6'5" at peak , I just don't see 6'6".

He still looks close to 6'3" nowadays .

Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter in 1991 (Hogan had inches on the then 6'3" Slaughter compared to Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter of today where Hogan is BARELY taller than a shrunken Slaughter as well (no way is he 6'3" at 67 and broken down as well). Need I say more?

Dennis Rodman had him easily by 1.5" maybe 2. Now possible Hulk had lost height when he took the pic but I'd say not more than 0.5-1". Hulk was 196-197 (6'5-6'5.5) prime. Maybe at peak 6'5.5 then 6'5 in the 80s- the 90s

@Big Mike: I was once arrested myself over10 years ago and didn't take my shoes off and wasn't asked to. I live in the states. Hogan however, I remember of of an interview where he said he was 6'5 not 6'7. I don't remember him saying he was 6'6" but if u can find it please show me

No way, the reason for shoes in mughots is the simple fact that wanted people unlkey are on the run barefeet, logic suggests they have their shoes on. Im not american but im sure they always including footwear in their mugshots. Maybe someone from USA can verify?



There´s no rule...
I think Ali Baba said some do barefoot mugshots, others not.
Going through some mugshot gallerys show the same person at different heights in different mugshots...

As usually you are making up heights just to fit in your Hogan 6'6 fantasy. Its the same case everytime time - only Hogan can shrink! but you still imagine a 60+ Gene Hackman to be 6'2 (if he ever was), and since was Trump 6'2-6'3?! he didnt even look 6'1 next to Vince McMahon.

62B is correct ...they take your shoes & belt & anything else that could be a physical threat to yourself or anyone else when they arrest you & place you into a holding cell. And shortly after that, your are officially booked ...which includes your finger prints & mug shots. At this point you are usually wearing nothing but socks or state issued flip flops. I was once arrested for getting into a huge bar fight with a few of buddies of mine against a bunch of drunken knuckle heads ...all 12 of us got arrested ...this is how they booked us all that might. Different law enforcement centers may have diferent procedure though.

Hulk was never anything above 6'5 in his prime. You could argue maybe 6'5.5 and closing in on 197 at bis peak maybe in the early 80s/late 70s but he himself corrected a reporter once who called him 6'7 and said he's 6'5" and that was in the early 90s. He wore thick boots. No question he's lost height today. Wouldn't surprise me if he can't even pull up beyond 191, 192 if he's lucky

Except Hall's arrest booking from late 90's said 6'5 and that 101% for sure includes footwear, so absolute tops 6'4 barefeet (peak). Nash was listed 6'10 in basketball, so 6'9 or less barefeet. Hogan at 6'7-6'8 peak is pure fantasies, thats a 3-4 inches overexaggerate to say at least.

@RP I'm cool with that 6'5.75 it's very possible. I still think he would hit just over 6'6" out of bed in the 70's and @dicksock i seen that on youtube it does exist but I'm not sure which of the many trial videos that shows it but he does get up and stand by the bailiff when the Judge tells him to to show how Gawker monetarily hurt him because he could no longer wrestle due to his banged up body. Keep looking it's there and Hogan was a inch taller than the 6'3" bailiff both in equal shoes.

Hogan was probably 6'5-6'5.5 peak which would make Studd 6'6.

The tallest Studd could had been was 6'5, as we saw in the video with Bill Fralic, which puts Hogan to a peak of around 6'4... and he's still 6'3 today (i can buy one inch height lost due to age)

I just remembered something I read on here a while ago. Which poster claimed there is a video of Hogan talking about his height during the Gawker trial? The claim was that Hogan stood up and compared his height with the bailiff to prove he was 6'4". Am I crazy or does that footage not exist? If it does exist, it would be probably the best evidence to upgrade Hogan's current height.

Graham 6'4" in shoes/wrestling boots. I've come to the conclusion all wrestling heights are measured in footwear and rounded up. So a 6'8" Hogan rounded up from 6'7.25 to 6'7.5" in gear is accurate in the wrestling world. 6'3" warrior or 6'4" Rock or 6'5" Lex Luger or 6'9" Sid Vicious or 6'1" Shawn Michaels or 6'7" Scott Hall or 6'11" Kevin Nash and the list goes on.

Um... He said he lost over two inches of height and is now 6'? That would mean that was over an even 6'2" bro. He always looked around 6'3" or maybe a tad less in his prime. There is no point in examining the Arnold pics. They're really not a good comparison of height. Look at Graham in live interviews with 6'0.5"-6'1" prime Vince McMahon. He always looked at least 2" taller.

Vince was never taller than the 6'0 tops Bret Hart, if any he was a tad shorter...

_______________

I am aware of this. But, Vince's height has always been tough to judge. There are times when he looked taller than Bret as well. Vince could look anywhere from 6' to 6'2" in any given segment. There was an in-ring interview with Vince and Warrior from 1996, and Vince looked equal in height to the 6'1"-6'2" Ultimate Warrior. He could look the same height as 6'1" Steve Austin as well. I don't if he occasionally wore lifts or if the camera angle played a part, but regardless, I can't see Vince as anything less than a solid 6' in his prime during the 1970s.
bigmike74 said on 2/Jul/16
I can't find the video but it's out there of Hogan and Lou Ferigno from the late 70's on a morning talk show. The guy and girl were interviewing Lou because they were filming in that town.
The guy said we have a Hulk of our own and Hogan came out and introduced himself as Terry Bolder. He towered over Lou when Lou stood up and shook his hand. Hogan had on some silky looking pants on and flip flops with a tiny muscle shirt on. Lou was in jeans and a tank top. Hogan made Lou look small by size not so much muscle definition. His arms and shoulders made Lou's look small. He had a good 3.5" to 4" on him even if Camera angles were giving Hogan that massive boost he still was atleast minimum 3" taller than Lou in high top shoes. A 1977 -79 young Hogan was a huge Man to make a 6'3" to 6'4" man look small. Every angle had Lou's eye level looking at Hogans chin. Maybe some truth to a little taller 6'6" in the a.m.

(Rob give me your opinion before the others either say yes i agree or no he was a comical 6'3.5" prime)

Tyco, Hogan is closer to the camera. On top of that, one can assume Ali's wearing dress shoes (considering his clothes) and chances are Hogan's wearing cowboy boots (like he often did outside the ring). So Hogan might have a double advantage there.

Studd is hard to judge because of the possibility of him wearing lifts. He just doesn't look taller than Hogan there. But, I've seen him look as tall as Ernie Ladd. Studd could look as short as 6'6" and as tall as 6'8" . It's sort of like Hogan. Sometimes Hogan looked legit 6'6" in the 80s, and other times he looked 6'5". As Hollywood Hogan, he could look as low as 6'4", even though I doubt he lost any real height by 1997.

Look & analyz the pics...Arnold is barefoot & Wayne is wearing 0.5" adidas trainers...plus, Arnold is looking down & slouching ...losing another 0.75" to 1" in posture (Wayne is perfectly erect in the biceps pose) this all added up gives Wayne the illusion of being 2" to 2.25" taller than Arnold. When he was actually only 0.5" to 0.75" taller than 6'1.25" to 6'1.5" Arnold. Look at the other pics...especially the side chest pose pic...Wayne is only 1" to 1.25" taller...subtract the 0.5" footwear advantage & he's only 0.5" to 0.75" tLker. Rob, analyze those pics...knowing Arnold is losing the posture battle in most of them & Wayne had a 0.5" footwear advantage & give us your height on Wayne Coleman?

@Big Mike74: of course it's possible but he himself said he was 6'5 in the 90s early 90s when a reporter called him 6'7. Also Bobby3342's father (6'6) met him and said he had him by an inch. Now the 6'6 out of bed may be accurate. But 6'6 out of bed (If flat) would make him 6'5 1/4 maybe 6'5 at night. So in that case he'd be ok at 6'5. That could be an easy inch loss in that profession or he could've been 6'5.5 peak (average height) and gotten down to 6'5 (1/2) later on in life at his lowest.

I have watched several shoots with Graham, and he always claims he was 6'4" and that steroids caused him to shrink to 6'. Where have you heard him say he was only 6'2"? I've always felt he was more like 6'3" in his day.

High camera and studd moving around, Studd in cowboyboots was visible taller than Hulk in cowboyboots.

Nice vid but without both standing straight face to face, no chance to tell the actual gap.

Imo Studd was somewhere between 2and 4cm taller than Hogan. Not quite as tall as Sid Eudy but closer to Sid than Hogan.

What I find interesting is that even when Studd was standing pretty straight, only a few feet from Hogan, he looked several inches shorter. I just can't imagine Studd looking taller in that situation if they went face to face. It would be one thing if they looked the same height there, but Hogan looked several inches taller the whole time. Studd certainly did not look more than 5" taller than the 6'0-6'1" Roddy Piper, who was wearing flat heeled shoes. Studd never looked taller than the ~6'6" One Man Gang either. I think it is possible that Studd was no more than 6'6" legit and could look 6'7" depending on his lift situation.
bigmike74 said on 27/Jun/16
@Canson i think Rob is dead on with his peak on Hogan. I have seen him in person and his body such as arms and legs are of a taller person with severe damage to his body. 6'5" is to low for peak maybe in the mid to late 90's evening height he would be 6'5" possibly just under if he was active but right out of bed in the 90's i think he would hit the 6'5.75 mark. Early 90's still 6'6" out of bed. He wasn't but a 1.5" under a prime 6'7.5" Undertaker then in the 2000's he looked to be 3" shorter. I always see people saying he was a lift guy but if you really look at his yellow boots they only gave him 1" that's it. When i was a kid i seen a young Hogan and he was massive i mean guys like superstar Graham and Bobby Duncum sr who were in the 6'3" to 6'5" range looked small against him in. I honestly think and i would bet Rob would probably say the same that in his early 20's he probably hit 6'6.5" possibly 6'7" right out of bed. The guy was huge. Also @Rob congrats on your Country breaking away from the Union i think it will make your economy stronger.

Whoa! Hogan & Studd exact same height in that video! Guess that confirms that Studd would occasionally wear 1.5" lifts??? I would say it's Hogan in lifts...but, Stuff with Mean Gene looked a tad shorter than he normally did with Gend in other mid-1980's interviews?? Also, Roddy Pipper only looked about a 1/2" shorter than David Schultz who many claimed to be 6'3.5 to 6'4". Today's lesson...never trust any pro wrestlers footwear at anytime.

@6'2 agreed no way 6'5". Maybe in thick shoes he can hit 6'5" but not barefoot that ship has sailed for him. 6'4" morning and 6'3.5" mid to evening height no lower though it's just not possible knowing my height barefoot.

6'2 said on 22/Jun/16
doubt hes 6'5 today id say peak close to 6'6, so 6'3 nowadays would be quite accurate, again his posture is not as good 30 years ago so could possibly stretch to 6'4

@er4smiths please stop with your stupid BS. You already fanboy Hogan on Facebook which he responded to you then you troll people on twitter about hogan like a creepy weirdo. I have screen shot everything that i have found on your long insane height trolling obsession of Hulk Hogan. I have no problem emailing the 30 screen shots to Rob showing him what you actually do. Hell even people have told you on some of the trolling you do that they are 6'2" or 6'3" and Hogan was bigger than them. Please stop Erik. If everyone wants to see for them selves what this guy does so we can finally get him to stop just look on twitter under Erik Rosenquist go through his tweets there's tons of them trolling on Hogans height to Hogan and people who took pics with him also him trolling on Andre and many others. Everyone please look it up for yourselves then we all can start ignoring him because all he is doing is trolling.

Marlon Wayans is listed as 6ft 0.5in on here and most people agree he's around 6 feet.
Now Google him and Hulk Hogan and looks at the pics of them standing side by side.
Sorry guys, but a 6'3-6'4.5" man stands much taller than that against a 6 footer.
I am looking forward to the attempted excuses.

Wow... If Brock really was 6'2-3/8" that makes The Rock at least 6'3 and 1/2 inches tall back in 2002. Maybe even 6'4". But could it be possible?
bigmike74 said on 14/Jun/16
@RP makes sense. I met him mid morning around 9:30 - 10:00. With my shoes (trainers) on I'm right on that fine line between 6'3.9" and 6'4" roughly 1.2" increase. He was in similar shoes not the jordans he wears on TV but trainers right off memory i don't know brand and he was atleast 1" to 1.2" taller than me when my brother asked him to stand straight for pics. I wouldn't go lower that 6'3.75" barefoot with a slight bend but morning erect and hasn't been on his feet 6'4" totally but no more barefoot. I honestly wouldn't be suprised if he would hit 6'4.25" to 6'4.5" right out of bed. I would agree as i have said before 6'3.5" evening and midday after lifting or moving around alot but standing totally erect i still say he would hit right around the 6'4" mark but as the day wound down he would have to force that mark.
RP said on 14/Jun/16
Brock was measured barefoot in 2004 by NFL DR's & medical staff @ 6'2-3/8" & 286 lbs naked...."Minnesota Vikings Staff" !! This is well known & established.
RP said on 12/Jun/16
Big Mike, he is taller than you...6'3.5" to 6'2.75" ...correct? Not totally ruling out a perfectly erect 6'4" for him in the morning. But, he's basically 6'3.5" now.
Johan said on 11/Jun/16
@denali

Brock is listed at 6'2" here .
RYAN11 said on 10/Jun/16
Where did Hogan look an inch shorter than Hasselhoff?? The picture of them in their racing suits side by side with the exact same footwear, angle etc showed them equal in height. Hasselhoff is more than 6'4" also.
denali said on 8/Jun/16
hes taller than brock who is 6-3 according to mma so ill go 6-4 even for hulk.
bigmike74 said on 8/Jun/16
@RP opinions are based on visual perception whether pictures or face to face. I have met Hogan and i am just under 6'3" and he was taller than me. So if he was 6'3" we would be almost eye to eye which was not the case.
Johan said on 8/Jun/16
6'3" looks reliable. Not nonsense at all. He is a solid inch under hasselhoff and he didnt look more than 3 inches taller than the 6 foot guy who posted here a while back.

He also held his own with Randy Orton but he had more footwear.
RP said on 7/Jun/16
Big mike74...Rob is right, Hulk is "max" 6'3.5" today @ 62 years old...he never pulls off a legit 6'4" when he's with other legit 6'4" & 6'5" guys.
er4smiths said on 6/Jun/16
@Rob you're probably more than likely being very generous with the 6'3" listing - Joe M. dwarfed Hogan and Snoop is 6'3" at best and is taller as is Hasselhoff and P. Manning. The Rock is 6'2" AT BEST - look at the pic of he and Barkley or Kenny Anderson.
bigmike74 said on 6/Jun/16
@Rob i respect your opinion and pics are not good for height reference but seeing him with my own eyes i know he is 6'4" if he stands up straight. 6'3.5" with bad posture. But what's a inch right. But 6'3" and lower is just nonsense
miko said on 6/Jun/16
I still believe if you put him under a tape measure and he forced everything to the max he'd hit at least 6'3.
RP said on 6/Jun/16
To Andre: no way I can ever buy peak Andre The Giant only being 6'9.5" peak height! Andre was 3" taller than legit 6'8.5" barefoot Ernie Ladd in the late 1970's ! Anything under 6'11" peak Andre is complete rubbish ! Peak Andre was anywhere from 6'11" to 7'0.25" peak height! Pin pointing exactly where between 6'11" & 7'0.25" is the issue tho, due to his posture.
bigmike74 said on 6/Jun/16
@Rob when are you gonna upgrade his current height? You have DDP @6'4" and Hasselhoff @6'4" and Hogan is the same height as both those guys.
Also you have the Rock @6'3" and Hogan is taller than him to this day with bad posture. Austin is minimum 6'2" in shoes and pics of them together show Hogan 3" taller. Can he get upgraded? The man is not as low as 6'3" even with bad posture. Same height as snoop and Billy Gunn again both 6'4" guys.
Editor Rob: I'm not sure he is that tall, when he was doing the event with Joe Manganiello he looked more 6ft 3 than 4.
er4smiths said on 4/Jun/16
@andre - agreed very well said. I wouldn't be surprised if Hogan was 6'2" now.
JT said on 4/Jun/16
Click Here Hogan’s got some big-heeled boots on. Click Here Johnny Carson was probably 5’10”ish and Ed McMahon 6’2”ish.

andre said on 3/Jun/16
Andre the giant was at his prime 6ft9.5 and if he lose any height he would be from 6ft8.5 to 6ft8 some people even say he looks like 6ft7.5 in his last movie back in 1992 and hogan was 6ft4.5 at his tallest and today is 6ft3 end of the story

berta said on 31/May/16
197,5 right out of bed. then after 1 hour ore so i go down to 197 and some Days if i dont do anything Heavy just sit infront the computer i can still be 197 in the evening. And if i work the whole day( i have kind of a fysical job) and then go to the gym, then i be 196,5. I giuss if i would do deadlift with 400 Pounds 20 set, then i maybe be 196,3 but overall i loose just about 1 cm from first minute i Wake to the time i go to bed. But as i said Before i Think thats because i have strong back muscles. Dont know what i deadlift but i have benched 202,5 kg wheni was at my strongest. So i guess a guy like John cena doenst loose more than 1 cm at most because he is mutch stronger than me.
Canson said on 28/May/16
@Berta: is 197.5 out of bed or is that like first hour? Youre right. You don't lose much considering 6'5 3/8 after lifting from maybe 6'5 3/4 morning. I lose 3/4 regularly even if I don't lift (196 out of bed/194.2-3 at night) and can get down a hair under the 194 mark if I lift even if hydrated. I've seen 6'4 flat (maybe a mm over) as an experiment once but because I stood for hours and wasn't well hydrated

to aNSWER RAMPAGE. yOU DONT HAVE TO LOOSE THAT MUTCH HEIGHT DURING THE DAY just because youare very tall. I am about 197,5 in the morning and the shortest i get is 196.5 if i lift heavy during the day. I think the moore musles you have the lesser chnce to shrink that mutch during the day.

Guys do not get inflated by 4 or 5 inches, it's impossible to get away with and pointless
-------------------------------

Yes they do. Rey mysterio was billed 5'6 his whole run in WWE and he is 5'2 at most (go have a look at 5'8 rob standing with him)

Dave Finlay was listed 6'2 and when I met him in 2009 he looked no more than 5'10. Kurt angle was billed 6'2 in WWE and he is 5'10. Colin Cassidy who just debuted in main roster is billed 7 feet despite getting listed at 6'8 in college basketball

Khali during his run in Japan was listed 7'7 so that's at least a 6 inch markup

Hogan in 1993 was getting listed at 6'7 by WWE because I have official wwe trading cards from that year with that listing. He was also listed 6'6 before his big megapush in 1984 outside WWE so that rules out any chance he ever stood 6'7 unless you think promoters underbilled him..
Leo said on 21/May/16
In his debut in the WWF (1979), he was described 6'5-6'6.
6'5.5 is very reasonable and maybe never was 6'6.
62B said on 20/May/16
So Andre who was at one time a legit 7'2-3" guy gets billed at 7'4-5", Hogan a legit 6'7" guy gets billed between 6'8-9" consistently by the WWF until he went to WCW.

The Height difference between the Andre I ran into in 1988 and the 7'2" guy I stood next to was to great for me to believe Andre was ever that tall. Its really hard to convey just how large of a man Andre was. Terri Todd probably said it best when he described him as looking inhuman, but I don't think he was ever over 7' , and Hogan who stood right next to my 6'4 1/2" or so Grandfather in 1980 was not 2 1/2" taller. At best he had my Grandfather by an inch. Hogan may have been 6'7" in cowboy boots, but not barefoot.
josey wales said on 19/May/16
Not only does greater height influence height fluctuation, but build and body mass as well.
RYAN11 said on 19/May/16
As RP pointed out, when athletes come from pro organizations where their height is already known the WWF could not inflate them. Otherwise they would have listed Ladd at 7 feet tall or 6'11" anyway. They always pushed up most wrestlers to 1-2 inches taller if they were already tall guys, greater the height the more exaggerated you can be. So Andre who was at one time a legit 7'2-3" guy gets billed at 7'4-5", Hogan a legit 6'7" guy gets billed between 6'8-9" consistently by the WWF until he went to WCW. By the time the 90's had come around too many stars and athletes were involved and they could no longer get away with the inflated heights like before. Undertaker a legit 6'8 plus guy gets billed at 6'10" and Kane who was around the same height gets padded boots and 7 foot listing. Just like Big Show got billed at 7'4" in WCW, Internet took care of getting away with that so he got listed at his true height of 7' tall in WWE. Guys do not get inflated by 4 or 5 inches, it's impossible to get away with and pointless. Hogan was 6'7" and nothing proves otherwise, he now stands at 6'4" at his best with poor posture almost all the time because of his hips and knees. There are things I always got a kick out of like how they announced Taker at 328lbs yet you could clearly see Hogan was bigger everywhere and only 1-2 inches shorter at most, yet he always was announced at 302lbs lol.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/16
Rob, is the height fluctuation (morning to evening) more dramatic for 6ft5-6ft7 range guys?
Editor Rob: the longer the spine, the greater the chance of a larger 'diurnal variation'.

mine is typically in the 0.6-0.7 range.

Just look at the still photos from the brawl that broke out in the RIders Chiefs game that one year...google Ernie Ladd-Ben Davidson-Raiders/Chiefs brawl...Ben got in Ernie's face...Ernie had him by a strong solid inch!

That would be a funny picture, considering that brawl you're referring to happened during the 1970 NFL-season. Several years after Ernie Ladd was officially retired and therefore wasn't even part of that match. I did the google search and found no pic of Ladd & Davidson. Please post that picture here then, if you claim you've seen one.

If Davidson hated the Chiefs and wanted to dish Ernie Ladd by downplaying his size, why didn't he do the same with Morris Stroud, who also played for the Chiefs?
bigmike74 said on 15/May/16
Ladd was taller than Davidson, and Davidson was a legit 6'8" Man. So 6'9" was dead on for Ladd just look at older pictures of Ladd's Football career. Super big guy.
RP said on 13/May/16
Raiders & Chiefs players literally hated each other back in those days! Like real hatred! Watch sons of the old documentaries on the Raiders vs Chiefs fued! They were always taking crap & dissing each other! Ben Davidson who was listed @ 6'8" & was actually a barefoot 6'7.5" always hated Ernie & the fact he got all the pub for his height & got called the Tallest Pro Football Playet! Ernie was taller than Ben..fact!! Just look at the still photos from the brawl that broke out in the RIders Chiefs game that one year...google Ernie Ladd-Ben Davidson-Raiders/Chiefs brawl...Ben got in Ernie's face...Ernie had him by a strong solid inch!

Straightahead, due to Ernie Ladd being a very popular football player for well over a decade...and being always listed as the tallest pro football player for years all over the media...all the sports world & fans knew Ladd was 6'9"!! Therefor...pro wrestling had to stick with his 6'9" billing. Same reason WCW announced Karl Malone @ 6'9"...they couldn't just go bill him at 6'11" !! All the world already knew he was 6'9"...same thing with Ernie Ladd!

Studd in equal gear, posture, angle, distance etc was no more than one inch shorter than Ladd and that much is FACT lol.

Logic isnt your strongest side i can see, now if Ladd had been a legit 6'9 dont you think he would had been billed 7ft then? Ladd was 6'6 according to Ben Davidson.

So Rude estimates Hulk at 6'5 range doesn't mean he is right on. There was also the story in the book Sex, Lies and Headlocks that Hulk was 6'5 and when he first met McMahon he gave him a 1000 sequence robe and a pair of boots with lifts inside so they could bill him as 6'8. Either way he would still appear 6'6 range in comparisons.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

@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.

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.

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

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?


62B said on 11/Apr/16

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.

(Formerly 184.3cmNight)

I´m pretty sure they weren´t noticable higher, watch WM8 again and you even see Hogan on his tiptoes still near 2inches shorter during their staredown.
RP said on 13/Apr/16
62B...yeah, when you adjust the camera tilt he did look more 6'6.5" to me. Great example on how hard it is to truly judge someone's height from random photos.

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.

It says here taker had 1 inch on Sid at mania 97

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.

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.
