Comment on the Height of Jesse Ventura

He has a cameo in Batman & Robin. The guy he stands next to in that film (the other prison guard) is also a wrestler and is billed at 6'6. Jesse looks 6'1, maybe 6'2 next to him. I never understood that, because Ventura always looks pretty tall, and he held up well next to Hulk Hogan. I would say a little over 6'2 at peak. 6'3 might be a slight stretch.

I could believe the 6,2.75 at peak at night.

Jesse Ventura once said in an interview that he was measured @ 6'2.75" by the U.S. Navy.

Ventura was clearly bigger than Arnold in 'The Running Man'. And he is clearly smaller than Hogan in one of their stupid promotional clips - but not a lot smaller.

I think Arnold was about 6'1" at his best. Ventura probably was a legitimate 6'4" bur Ventura wasn't really very muscular for very long. In most of his clips he looks out of shape and flabby.

Hogan probably was close to 6'7" when he appeared as Thunderlips but professional wrestlers suffer a lot of injuries. He probably lost 3 inches.

When I first found this site I was a legitimate 6'4". But I fell off a cliff. When I could walk again "(a year later) I was 6'2". Lots of wrestlers have injuries comparable or greater than mine.

Of course most wrestlers have their heart's blow up first. I used to lift weights but I never took steroids. So my heart keeps beating.

I believe hes more like 6ft 2 look about the same height as former President Bill Clinton... Hogan I don't believe was ever was 6ft 6

6'4.5" peak? Laughable. Was certainly more than 1.5" shorter than 6'6" Hogan:

Marcus Hickman said on 3/Jan/14
6' 4 1/4" 1.94 cm peak

He's between 6'2 and 6'3" now. I'm not sure what his peak height was though.

He was shorter than Ted Dibiase at the first Summerslam with advantageous footwear.

I'd put Jesse Ventura at a typical height for a wrestler billed 6'4". Probably 6'2"-6'2.5".

I think he was more 6'3" peak height and 6'2.5" today.

In that video below where vince and jesse are talking backstage look how much bigger jesse's head is than vince's. Jesse is at least a full inch taller, if not more.
Henrik said on 25/Aug/12
Ok, now I admit that I (and this site) was wrong. The announcer said 271lbs when Ventura had a match against Curt Hennig.
Henrik said on 25/Aug/12

So why are they writing 245lbs?
Henrik said on 24/Aug/12
275lbs? His billed weight in wrestling was 245.

Looks 6ft2-2.5 tops in 2012. Not in good shape at all. Really is heartbreaking to see guys like him deteriorate over the years. In Running Man he looked pretty close to 6ft4 and was a rock. 275lbs of pure muscle.

Jesse Ventura is listed "6 foot 2" in the WWEs Hall of Fame; Click Here

He shrunk and they list his height now, or what? I don't think he was as low as 6-2 in the 80s.

Jesse looks right around 6'4 in these pics with 6'6 Fred Dryer aka Hunter who was an NFL football player and 6' Michael Buffer and 6'2 Donald.

I watched the Running Man too. I am loathe to estimate, but it was clear to me that Jesse was shorter than 6 ft 5 in Sven and taller than AhNold.
Big Show said on 23/Oct/06
Aren't there any pics of Ventura and Schwarzenegger. They've played in a couple of films together and I can't remember how they compared to each other in height. Charles Barkley indeed isn't 6'6, he's 6'4, but in the pic Jesse is standing behind Barkley and he's leaning a lot more than Barkley is. So this pic really isn't a good way to judge Ventura's height.
Stephen said on 13/Sep/06
There is now way that Ventura is 6-4 now. I give him 6'1.5" tops. I don't think that he was ever any taller than 6'3".
Viper652 said on 29/Aug/06
Barley was never 6-6.
harry said on 28/Aug/06
dipends on how old they were when they met,charles barkley was 6'6,jesse ventura(mean name...mean is newzealand slang for cool)was 6'4 prolly shrunk to 6'2 by now,possbly bad posture and sugeryson necks,knees or other weak bones.
Danimal said on 10/Jul/06
I don't think Jesse lost 2-3" because of surgeries like so many other tall people (Andre, Hogan, Eastwood, etc..). I just think he had bad posture nowadays and appears shorter because of that. I think if he stands straight he'd be over 6'3" easily.
Marty said on 14/Jun/06
In the Predator DVD Jesse claims to be a 6'5 250lbs wrestler... Now I have to give him a good 6'3.5 at least. He looks to be a good 6'4" and that wouldn't be surprising. Nowadays he's probably around 6'2 1/2
Frank said on 13/Feb/06
Canstop, Gorilla Monsoon was never 6ft 6 that's what he said on an interview but i believe he was 6ft 4 in his heyday...Monsoon looked alittle Taller than Triple H....Triple H is 6ft 3 with lifts
I said on 18/Dec/05
He was by one inch shorter than Bill Duke(my guess Duke is 195cm).So 192 cm is correct height for him.
Gramps said on 8/Dec/05
I'd give Ventura close to 6'4" in the late '70s and about 6'3" today. I'm going to take a closer look at him, though.
Jason said on 7/Dec/05
I remember he was only a hair taller than Triple H at Summerslam '99.

In the mid-eighties, whenever Jesse would interview Hulk Hogan, it was always apparent that Hogan had a good two inches on Jesse...Even when they wrestled, Ventura looked small next to Hogan...Now, Hogan is said to be no more than 6'4" today and it would be very interesting to see them stand next to each other with Hogan's obvious loss in height over the years...I have read that Ventura is 6'2" and 245 pounds today, but I have also seen him listed at 6'4"-6'5"...His heighest weight in the WWF was 281 pounds...
Jason said on 28/Aug/05
I remember in a newspaper article here (in Australia, back when he won the governorship in Minnesota, he was described as being 192cm (6'3 1/2''). I don't know if he's as tall as Hulk Hogan, though ...
RLG said on 26/Aug/05
Ventura also said he was 6'5" in part of the DVD extras for Predator. Guess he's another one of those people who can't decide what height they are. :)

He also is said not to have been a Navy SEAL at all but was a UDT (a "frog") which was a much, much safer job to be in back then, so his honesty is perhaps questionable on some things but that's maybe no surprise as we are talking about a former wrestler here. ;)

Female high-school student said on this page, "I'm six-two, and I was wearing three-inch heels, and he was still a good inch-and-a-half taller
