I'm not sure if a 6'7" + man can put up over 500 pounds. I'd believe 420 pounds though. When your arms are THAT long, it's considerably harder to bring the weight all the way up.
Danimal said on 9/Dec/07
Kane was never ripped Alex. He had very little definition. He had a TON of muscle. Very large muscle bellies, but he lacked the striations that Batista had. That is due to the fact that he most likely had a higher bodyfat count.
KingNick said on 9/Dec/07
When Big Show first entered WWE, I remember seeing a Sunday Night Heat match where he and Kane fought. Kane actually picked him up to slam him! I think Big Show blocked the slam, but Kane did definitely pick him up and hold him for a second. He also backsuplexed him (they probably jump on that move, but I remember it definitely looking like Kane was lifting him). He's tombstoned Vader in the past, who was probably around 400lbs, and bodyslammed Great Khali at Wrestlemania. The dude is STRONG.

I remeber goldberg dealing with big show on WCW with ease back in the late nineties, was it the jackhammer manouvre? (it was his finisher anyway). Yea kane can do with a new aesthetic. those pants have got to be smelly by now :P. I think its sad that hes here to prove other wrestlers strength..his treatment with big daddy V recently a prime eg..did he win his clash with edge on smackdown?..i hope so..loyal and deserves a reign..
kane fan said on 9/Dec/07
I agree with everybody. Kane is stronger than Taker. Another thing,everybody is saying that he has lost muscle after all this year. But, think for a second...HHH was 100% muscle back in the 2000-2003, now Kane is in better physical condition than the game. Also, we all know that Kane is 40 years old and not 30 anymore. He's got some knees problems with the pass of the years and that's the reason why he's not using the tombstone piledriver anymore. But I think that he's still a beast, not like before, but still the big red machine. One last thing. It's time that Kane change his outfit. The one his using these days sucks. He's been wearing the same pants for more than 4 years. It's time for a new attitude and it's time for a title reign he is definetely the most loyal wrestler in the roster and a very hard worker. He has a lot of records ( most eliminated in the royal rumble (11), 9 appearances in the rumble in a row, and common he's got a lot of talent, more talent than Jeff Hardy, Cena, Khali, Henry, Daddy V, and many other superstars.
Alex said on 9/Dec/07
Kane was a bit ripped but he was massive at the same time,but I agree he was stronger than almost the entire locker room except for guys like Big Show, Lesnar and Henry.
Dave said on 8/Dec/07
kane fan.... kane can bench CONSIDERABLY more than taker and most of the rest of the locker room. Its said in his prime he repped out at over 430... yes, repped out. And yeah his max bench is well over 500lbs..... kane is not quite as strong as he used to be though, nowdays i wouldnt be so sure, but in his day he was smoke the whole wwe locker room with ease.... hes not ripped muscular, hes simply power muscular. Kane is a beast, and yeah he was the first to lift big show for a number of throws, and big show was much heavier than his wcw weight when nash (impressively) powerbombed him (properly, not the first botch). Mick foley also said that kane was probably the strongest man hed ever met.

Btw, because this is celeb heights, i think we can conclude that kane is 6'7.5 minimum based on the evidence placed here in the past few weeks.
ted T said on 8/Dec/07
Kane is a great wrestler.Undertaker is greater.
Alex said on 8/Dec/07
I can believe Kane can bench over 500lbs easy for his max.
I read something about UT only being able to bench 365lbs. Thats weird.
Yea, Kane is stronger than UT.
kane fan said on 8/Dec/07
How much does Kane bench?? is he stronger than The Undertaker??? I've read that he can bench 535 pounds. I think that he's stronger than many wrestlers he was the first to bodyslam and powerslam the Big Show. The Undertaker once said that Kane was one of the strongest ever in the business. I've never seen the Undertaker lifting the Big Show or bodyslam Khali.
Alex2 said on 8/Dec/07
Also notice Kane is ALWAYS now slouching when he fights. Just Look.
Mattiew_- said on 8/Dec/07
He has a good foot on mamun ( especially if he stood straight )
kane fan said on 7/Dec/07
I think Kane is between 6'9 and 6'10 ( he's lost height after all this years )but sometimes he looks smaller because of his position. If he stands straight, he is 6'10 I'm sure
Alex said on 7/Dec/07
Kane didn't have Ben by more than 3 inches at the most. Really more 2 1/2 though.
Electric Shock said on 6/Dec/07
Kane is 6'8.5"; that picture with Big Ben shows him to be about 3.5 inches taller.
Dave said on 6/Dec/07
it was only my second show :) and it was really awesome fun!, if you get a chance i would reccomend it :)
D-Lurker said on 5/Dec/07
Good to hear, dave. i've never been to a live show, that should be interesting
Da Man said on 5/Dec/07
Kane is ~2.5" taller than Roethlisberger, probably 2.75". Big Daddy V looked nearly the same height as Max Starks, Roethlisberger was clearly standing on his toes in the pic with Vis and Starks. Roethlisberger is not the same height as Vis, Vis is at least 1.5" taller than Ben.
Jiga said on 5/Dec/07
well i say 6'8.5,

kane is no lower than 6'8.... thats his bare minimum.

I still think he could get 6'9 on a good day.
Dave said on 5/Dec/07
Btw i had a perfect side view of kane and big daddy V last night at smackdown when they came to belfast northern ireland (my home town).... altho i wasnt ringside, i was a maximum of 30 feet away from the ring which gave me a perfect view....

They had a 3 or 4 second staredown and for once they both apeared to be straight, and kanes head was back further than usual so you could see him fully extended, from what i saw they were both wearing the exact same boots in that pic down the page a little bit, Even though i have no photographic evidence i will tell you honestly that kane had over an inch on big daddy V with thier two heads straight, infact even my friend agreed that he could have had 2 inches quite comfortably....

Although this proves nothing, i will comfortably say that kane IS certainly taller, and by over an inch.... how much over an inch is debateable, but its certain in my book,

the pics with big ben below also certify this, as kane is easily between one and two inches taller than big ben and big daddy V was about the same height.
Dave said on 4/Dec/07
kane is no lower than 6'7.... thats his bare minimum.

I still think he could get 6'8 on a good day.
Derek said on 4/Dec/07
When Taker and Viscera(then Mabel) fought in December 1995, Taker was around 2" taller. He was definitely 6'8" at his peak, though he is clearly less than that now. Now, there's no more than an inch between them.
Danimal said on 4/Dec/07
Viscera is at the very least 6'6" and what's interesting is that before Taker lost height in 1999-2000, he had Viscera by 1-2".
Jun said on 4/Dec/07
Guys! On the pics of LV Ben(6'5") eyes are same height with Kane nose.I'm 6'1'
and the dicstance between my nose and my eyes are 5.5cm.If I were Kane it will be 7cm so I think Kane is 6'8"(minimum).cause I don't know Kane stood up straight or not
KingNick said on 3/Dec/07
I think Vis's lifts are bigger,but Kane's shoes do change occassionally. I think in the pic where Vis is standing on him he's got at least 2 inches in those things while Kane only has an inch to an inch and a half.
Alex2 said on 3/Dec/07
Viscera looks as tall as Mac there, so what Viscera 6'8?
LV said on 2/Dec/07
Both have heels on their boots, but they look to give them each about the same amount of height so they cancel each other out. Visera is 6'6 1/2" or so and Kane is about an inch taller. Here is Visera with 6'5" Ben Rothlisberger and 6'8" Max Starks (Click Here).Here is Kane with Big Ben (Click Here).Kane might be wearing lifts but is still 2"+ taller than him.
KingNick said on 2/Dec/07
The best pic is midway through the second row
Alex2 said on 2/Dec/07
Yup vis's do look a little bigger, but there is no way its just 1" at least 1.5" if you ask me, I will for now officially put Kane in my books as 6'8.5"
JT said on 2/Dec/07

Alex said on 2/Dec/07
Viscera is 6'6 and probably has a bit more footwear advantage. Kane is minimum 6'7 barefoot still.
Danimal said on 2/Dec/07
I definitely think that Kane at his heaviest was 340 pounds. He'll never have as much muscle mass as he carried in the late 90's.
JT said on 2/Dec/07

Vis is wearing lifts to and his are BIGGER than Kane's! Click Here

Nope. Kane
Dave said on 2/Dec/07
vegas..... no way theres a half an inch difference. Open your eyes!

kane is over an inch taller
ShawnG said on 2/Dec/07
i went smackdown in knoxville and kane had on 1 inch boots and was atleast 2 inches taller then big daddy v kane is 6'9 to 6'10 barefoot

Vis is wearing lifts to and his are BIGGER than Kane's

got a great view close up of both guys footwear in HDTV on the various nights this week, kanes footwear is slightly bigger than BDV, i would say 1.3" to kanes 1.5"

Vegas said on 2/Dec/07
its one inch Click Here the last time kane had his head bent downward so it looked less than half an inch difference Click Here

zero chance kane is 6'9 barefoot
Alex2 said on 2/Dec/07
I still think Kane is more 6'9" or a tiny bit under and daddy v is 6'7
Dave said on 2/Dec/07
firstly theres aboutt 2 inches in that pic, certainly more than one.... and to the guy claiming the lifts, i dont agree, it was his usual footwear and kane is always AT LEAST an inch taller than big daddy V and theyve never had a proper proper head tilted straight staredown, and if they did i think we would see that kane has him by almost 2 inches.
Alex2 said on 1/Dec/07
Vegas i see more than 1" there more like 2"
Alex said on 1/Dec/07
Kane now still doesn't look as heavy as he did in 2000-2001.
Vegas said on 1/Dec/07
kane was wearing his usual footwear, he just stood up straight with BDV this time and had him by 1" Click Here
Ray said on 1/Dec/07
Kane looked to have lifts in yesterday night on SD; he looked to have a little more height over Big Daddy V than he normally does.
Vegas said on 30/Nov/07
kane looks as heavy now as he has ever been

BDV is ridiculously and dangerously obsese, he made mark henry look thin on ecw, when he wore the other ring gear he didn't look as fat but now there is no hiding his size.....
Alex said on 29/Nov/07
Kane at his heaviest could have passed for 340-350lbs.
Dave said on 28/Nov/07
indeed.... he has bulked up quite a bit!. Also, he is clearly an inch or so taller than big daddy v.
Da Man said on 28/Nov/07
brother_h, Kane does look like he been putting on muscle mass. I saw ECW last night, Kane looked like he's bulked up a good bit versus a few months ago. Once again, he looked clearly taller than Big Daddy V in the ring.
brother_h said on 24/Nov/07
the heaviest kane has ever weighted was 340lbs.
the lightest was 285.
Khali's heaviest was 406lbs in the longest yard(420 is his wwe weight so it mustnt be true) his lightest would have been idk 200lbs when he was 12 =D jks
it was 400lbs in the weight lifting. i think it was 400lbs. idk i was just in that website too.
today he looks like a real wwe superstar now. fat and ugly >p.
i agree with 380lbs today.
I told you(or some website) that Kane has been working out and buffing up. but nooooope, dont pay attention to me. he'll be likley 310-320lbs range now.
Alex said on 23/Nov/07
Dalip looks 380-400lbs to me.
Dave said on 20/Nov/07
anon1 dalip is NOT as much more muscular than kane as you say.... really hes not, and kane is stronger in the gym, thats a fact (wwe superstar verified).... also, recently i saw him and kane fighting one and other, and kane is beefing up again, there is not an 80lb difference, and kane is not under 300lbs.... kane is about 310 nowadays, and dalip is 360 max.

there really wasnt that much difference between the two bulkwise! and to be honest kane didnt look as short as i expected him to, he sized up to khali quite well actually.
Eric said on 20/Nov/07
Kane has him there in height. They both have the same type of boots on too. Kane doesnt have a bigger heal at all . There was no reason for kane to wear lifts as Yankem cause he wasnt considered a monster. He was a jobber.
Ray said on 20/Nov/07
Kane has MAYBE .5" advantage over Taker in the staredown of Taker vs. Yankem. Hard to tell and it looks like they are almost exactly at eye level and we know Taker has his highest peak at the back of his head so I don't know. They could be equal there. Taker's boots look pretty flat and Yankem's don't look too bad but..........you never know, I always thought those shiney black boots had/have some extra padding in them - could be wrong.
Kane fan #1 said on 20/Nov/07
Sup yall .. Kane has told many ppl himself that he is 6'8.5" barefoot right now he might be 6'8" barefoot with wrestling gear on no more then 6'9.5" old gear 6'10.5" tops .. he is taller then Taker by more then .5 an inch barefoot and out weighs him by 35 lb. easily Taker is 6'8.5" to 6'9 wit gear barefoot 6'7.5" to 6'7.75" and is very slim 285 lb. and kane has a belly leavin him at 320 lb. .. everybody has their own opinions but im tellin all yall dat this is absolutely right ..
Alex2 said on 19/Nov/07
Ok here is a video of Kane from his Isaac Yankem days with a staredown against Undertaker, i think Yankem (Kane) has about 0.5" on him or maybe a little more

Click Here
Da Man said on 19/Nov/07
Kane's around 300 lbs. He was easily 320 lbs. from the fake Diesel days up until 2001 and probably in the 270 range from 2002 to around 2004. I'd say Kane was probably in his best shape around 2001 (tank top era), right before his injury.
Alex said on 19/Nov/07
Kane at his heaviest was in the 325-330lb range for a long time. He got down to around 280lbs or looked around there in 2002 when he came back leaner. Today he has gained some size back but not like he was back then. Today I'd say Kane is 300-305lbs.
anonymous 1 said on 18/Nov/07
kane is suppose to weigh 320 1bs,i,d say more like 2901bs.dalip singh weighs 370 1bs and he,s much bigger than kane,especially muscle wise.i say the difference between the 2 would be more like 80 1bs.
Dean said on 18/Nov/07
Kanes a beast, he looks around 6,8/9 but i always thought he was 7ft
Alex said on 18/Nov/07
Punisher, honestly I thought Kane for a legit 6'11 for years and it wasn't until a few years ago where I figured he wasn't anymore but still thought he was a legit 6'10. Since coming to this site I've thought Kane was no more than 6'8.
But Kane could have been pretty close to 6'11 in his old boots though.
ShawnG said on 17/Nov/07
yea im with punisher he is really 6'10.5 i dk if that is barefoot ot not but i think it is barefoot
anonymous 1 said on 17/Nov/07
kane is not 6'11",kane is 4-5 inches shorter than both khali,and big show.kane is either 6,7" or 6,8" max.
Alex said on 17/Nov/07
Mamum, cool. It was on a stadiometer right? I'm not big on those things though. I rather have someone measure me against a wall.
But you're def a legit 5'8 and could be damn near 5'9 out of bed and 5'8 1/2 sometime during the morning.
Punisher said on 17/Nov/07
you got it all wrong Kane is 6ft11 and his wrestling boots are 1inch thick which then makes him 7ft tall
Mamun said on 16/Nov/07
Guess what guys! I just did a physical today at clinic at 4.30 pm and I was
measured at 5'8.1 " . Just thought I would let you know .
Regards
Mamun
KingNick said on 16/Nov/07
The reason I'm basing Kane at 6'8" - 6'8.5" I mean, look at those two photos above. He's almost a foot taller than Mamun and he's in street clothes. I think 'Show has always been a legit 7' but wore lifts to make him even more monstrous. When he and Kane teamed, I think Kane's shoes gave him less leverage. It's the only thing that makes sense to me.
ShawnG said on 15/Nov/07
i could see kane as 6'8.5 or 6'9 but not 6'7
elliot said on 15/Nov/07
kane without the lifts in boots hes about 6'8 and with them hes almost 7 feet my guess at his tallest he is 6'11 cause big show has always been slightly taller than kane but still kane is big guy...
cantstop25 said on 15/Nov/07
I would say booker is a solid 6'1" and cena a solid 6'
Dan said on 13/Nov/07
I was ringside for a smackdown taping and kane flew out of the ring right in front of me. I am 6'4" and when Kane stood up straight and looked back in the ring he had me buy at least 4" probably 5". I would put him at 6'8.5" at least if not 6'9"
anonymous 1 said on 12/Nov/07
someone 6,2" would probably come up to about kanesnose,lol.
Alex said on 11/Nov/07
Booker May have had an inch on Cena, or a bit less.
Viper said on 9/Nov/07
If Booker has an inch on Cena then I really question Cena's height.
cantstop25 said on 8/Nov/07
booker has about an inch on cena actually

(Click Here) Because of the camera angle, Viscera would be a little taller in the pic if he was lined up exactly with Kane.

How? Kane is farther from the camera than Vis there, you can see this with their feet in relation to the bottom rope, and is still looking an inch taller.

excactly chris,my point too,it,s easy to fix a pic to your discretion.

ShawnG thats not an accurate height estimate.. look at the top of Mamums head match up with kanes chin.. and look at the top of mamums head match up with that other tall dood.. theres atleast a few inchs difference there

i see tiny ron like 3-4 inches taller than kane.tiny ron is looking anywhere from 6'11" to 7,0"

Here's a match between Kane and Big Daddy V (Formerly known as Viscera). Kane looks about an inch taller and doesn't seem to wear his lifts anymore. Viscera was no shorter than 6'7 listed footballplayer Max Starks, but has been listed as 6'6 in the past by WWE. He was mainly a jobber back then, but I don't see him anything below 6'6.
Big Show said on 5/Nov/07
Click Here

Here's a vid of last weeks ECW main event with Kane, Khali, Big Daddy V and Mark Henry all in one ring. This has gotta be one of the worst over the top royal rumbles I've ever seen. You gotta wonder what Kane ever did wrong to deserve being put in the same ring with 3 people who can't wrestle a dime. Look at the opening of this rumble, where the 3 of them try to team up on Kane. Kane is like 3 times as fast as either one of them.
shawn_g said on 5/Nov/07
yea i did believe kane was 6'10 barefoot but my friend measured himin knoxville were he lives and 6'8 .5 barefoot

can we just get off of these ridiculous statements on Kane's abd etc. height. Kane is more nearer 6'8 not 6'3, not 6'6, not 6'10.

in those pics that JT listed.. Kane looks like 6'5-6'6 in the last 2 pics.. but of course its all about camera angles and watever.. plus kane is wearing his lifters.... ?????

Kane is almost 6'7.5" tall. In his wrestling boots he is about 6'10" end of story.

Kane 6'3.5 zomg!!! are you on drugs or just stupid? haha
Justin? Masters? said on 2/Nov/07
ok guys, to end the discussion on takers height, on his site theres a vid with him and the a train. in that staredown they are the EXACT same height! so its either taker and a train are both a legit 6'8'' or whatever a train is u can put taker at the same. which would also mean that taker is shorter than nathan jones, and andrew ''test'' martin!
Gamma_2008 said on 2/Nov/07

taker is slightly taller than jbl jbl may be listed at 6'5" ,but in boots i,d say he,s closer to 6'7",taker may have had him by an inch,taker i give a solid 6'8".
nick said on 30/Oct/07
Unfortunatly for us, the only people that deticate themselves to keep this website running are that of 5'8. Not meaning that it is bad for the average guys to judge height to like gibson tiberlake cruise etc, but for giants like the wrestlers it really is hard to judge. If there were guys here that are 6'2 to 6'4 here taking some shots there would only be the mere difference of 3 to 3 to 5 inches in the pictures. like in the photo above,, if mamum was say 6'2.5 if kane was 5 inches taller and he was at kanes upper cheek we would clearly see that kane is 6'7.5. Only 5 inches. not 12 inches.

Guys mamum rob and ofcourse glenn i apreciate what you guys are doing, keep it up lets see whos the first to take a pic with the undertaker, he seems to be very difficult to get a picture with. Also tell him to take his shoes off and stand up straight
nick said on 30/Oct/07
great job vegas, after looking at the picture with kane and bigshow u would have to be pm;y ignorant to believe bigshow isnt 6'11 to 7'0 feet tall. I mean show has such a terrible posture there, and u can also see how his feet are hanging over his boots meaning no lifts at all and hes still 5 inches taller than a 6'3 kane........... oh wait since the bigshow is 6'8 kane would only be 6'3???hmmmmmmmmmmmmm NO. Just saying show is 6'8 or 6'9 like that guy jason claims is just riduculous. I mean look at the pics of kane with mamum a real 5'8 guy.. hes towering at around a foot over him. t What his means is that the big show would HAVE to have mamum by atleast 16 inches . If show is 6'9 mamum is 5'3, sorry mamum just have to end these debates. But i do like the sid debate and the taker debates, Still trying to prove that sid is atleast 6'7 and we all know he is. I mean if he was 6'6 that means that he can be 6'5.5 in the ring at night at a paperview, its just funny that not everyone thinks of these things. If sid was 6'6 he would be 3 inches over a 6'3 guy. The difference would look much like a 6'0 to a 6'3 and we all know for a fact he towers* over 6'3 guys more than that. Not to mean any disrespect at all but i think that because all of the great guys who post pictures with wrestlers are shorter people, their estimates may be very well off, and the picture can be scewed because when a tall guy* like these wrestlers, encounter shorter people (all 5'8() they dont want to have a whos taller contest and reach for the stars with their height, that would just be disrespectful. So what they do is lower themselves slightly bringing them down atleast** an inch in every picture. check out by photobucket and you will realize the height differences Click Here

thank you
EliteK said on 30/Oct/07
but im 5'8 and my cousin is 6'7 and he doesnt tower of me that much like he does mamun.
EliteK said on 30/Oct/07
Kane is 6'7 i have his basketball card.
CK said on 30/Oct/07
JBL is 6'5" I have his high school football card.
Vegas said on 30/Oct/07
khali is 7ft or thereabouts, he was no taller than big show Click Here and Click Here and Click Here

Khali had an easy 5" on kane on Cyber sunday as kane barely reaches khalis eyelevel and is actually below it when the camera zooms in close at one point which again put kanes at 6'7 or max 6'7.5" as rob has above.

kane and khali in the ring again 5" Click Here

show and kane Click Here

kane wears bigger footwear than khali and these comparisons have been posted many times; it is the first time i have ever heard anyone claim kane had the footwear disadvantage, lol. a guy on another board claims kanes boots give him 5 or 6" lift........
dave said on 30/Oct/07
Alex"2", it was Kane with the thicker boots backstage there with Khali. Kane 6'8 - Khali 7'1.
Danimal said on 30/Oct/07
Kane's probably 6'7.5" and round up to 6'8", giving him that 2.5" height advantage on Ben. Enough with all these 6'10" listings for him. Since when has this site been flooded with all these know-it-all newbies??
Alex2 said on 30/Oct/07
If Kane was below 6'8-6'9 he would have looked a lot smaller than that against Khali, and Khali has big heels on his boots i think.
dave said on 30/Oct/07
And theres pictures of Khali and Kane in the ring, Khali with a 5+ inch advantage. Thats just an illusion backstage there with Henry, or Kane could be in his "Stallone" boots to bridge the gap between him and Khali.
Vegas said on 30/Oct/07
as JT has mentioned many times when the camera is looking up from a low position then height differences are minimized, a great example of this is scott hall and kevin nash. nash had 5" on hall in WCW even in flip-flops yet in this photo where the camera is very very low they are the same height Click Here

the same with the camera at CS, the low camera angle and kane closer to the camera made it look like a bigger kane Click Here but when the camera levelled out and zoomed in the true height difference is clear Click Here and Click Here
Alex said on 30/Oct/07
Ben was measured at 6'4 7/8 they said. To me thats basically 6'5. Could that be an earlier day measurement? Maybe but not sure. So Ben is still at the least 6'4 1/2-6'4 3/4.
Viper said on 30/Oct/07
JBL looked 6-3 with a wrestling fan on here. Id KILL to find that picture again.
Alex2 said on 30/Oct/07
Did anybody see Cyber Sunday PPV? Kane, Mark Henry and Great Khali were all standing together backstage, and the first words to come out of my friends mouth were "Thats Khali? He's well small!" I agreed cause he had like 2" on Kane, at angles Kane even looked bigger at times.
Alex2 said on 30/Oct/07
Look if Tyler Mane is 6'8'' then no way Taker is under 6'8 it just all depends on camera angles etc, i will try to post this video of taker and Rock backstage, Taker looks like a foot taller than Rock lol, literally! But i dont think looking at pictures in the ring are a good comparison, and in that picture with Taker and Show, Show is way closer to the camera.
brother_h said on 30/Oct/07
noway is JBL 6'2. he use to be listed as 6'8 afew years back. then they said 6'7, wwe started taking inches off their heights. from 7'2 to 7'0 and 7'0 to 6'10. even batista from 6'7 to 6'5 and triple h 6'4 to 6'3.
6'6 is what jbl looks. undertaker cant be shorter than 6'8, undertaker came upto gonzalez's chin, above where the 1 foot mark would be.
KingNick said on 29/Oct/07
Vegas, JBL is also wearing cowboy boots during that interview.
Alex said on 29/Oct/07
UT looks 6'7 tops there with Big Show.
nick said on 29/Oct/07
its funny, in the jbl video undertakers head still manages to peak at the top of jbls hat which gives he a 1 inch advantage. For the VERY best case scenero for the undertaker, jbl could have 1 half inch in footwear advantage, and an inch advantage because of the hat. The whole video i still taker taker a half inch taller. I still say jbl 6'6 and taker 6'7.5 like it is stated.
JT said on 29/Oct/07
It all depends on what boots Kane is wearing: his conventional boots (Click Here) or his Herman Munster boots (Click Here) and (Click Here).

I posted a pic over a year ago (from IIRC webshots.com) of JBL in cowboy boots side by side with Undertaker and looking exactly the same height. Undertaker was in normal shoes, so he probably is around an inch taller than JBL. That pic was from probably 2001 or 2002.

What
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
And as for the eye level, if you look, Taker is slouching a little, but keep in mind Taker has an un-usually large forhead, i remember his eye level was always lower than Syco Sid's but UT was still taller as his forhead is very big.
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
Do keep in mind that JBL wears cowboy boots which could give a big lift, plus JBL was closer to the camera,. lol we need to somehow get them both back to back and i bet taker is 2" taller, but Taker even admits hes 6'8.5 so come on hes gotta be at least 6'8
Vegas said on 29/Oct/07
well i saw no 2" between jbl and undertaker and certainly no 4.5" like the WWE claim, lol Click Here

they look very close in height, jbls eye level is higher Click Here

now if jason is correct and jbl is really 6'2.....

gonzales standing straight and taker Click Here gonzales nearly always bent his head downward with
undertaker
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
I just dont see Taker anything Under 6'8'' he had 2" on 6'6'' JBL on Smackdown last week,and there was less than a foot difference between him and Gonzales, humm i still buy taker as 6'7.5-6'8.5 and kane 6'8-6'9'' max.
Viper said on 29/Oct/07
"p.s. is there any way Rosenburger is slightly over 6'5?"

Hes actually struggling with 6-5.
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
Click Here - A good picture showing Kane looking very close to Big Show's height.
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
sorry i made a typo before, i meant 6'7.5 instead of 6'5 lol.
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
also, if that Eric guy is 5'11.5 then Kane is like 6'11 lol, thinking about it Kane could have even been getting changed or something in the rosenburger picture and been barefooted? I dunno but its a posibility
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
But if Kane is 6'.5,then Undertaker is 6'6.5? No way, Kane = 6'9'' with good posture barefoot, p.s. is there any way Rosenburger is slightly over 6'5?
dave said on 29/Oct/07
Looks a weak 6'7.5 next to Roethlisberger, looking at it again.
Alex said on 29/Oct/07
Also Ben at 6'5 weighs around 240lbs and looks thin next to Kane.
Vegas said on 29/Oct/07
Click Here

i met kane and stood beside him for a good few minutes and i didn't see anything over 6'7 to be honest, 6'6 max is what i thought first when he walked by.
Alex2 said on 29/Oct/07
Could somebody please post the picture with Kane and Big Ben, maybe Kane had bad posture in the picture? Or he was standing more behind the camera etc. Thanks.
Nick Cantan said on 29/Oct/07
ShawnG - if Khali was a legit 7'3, I think WWE would bill him 7'5.
Vegas said on 29/Oct/07
kane 6'10 barefoot, undertaker 6'9 barefoot lol, yes and i am 6'5 :D
Alex said on 29/Oct/07
But over 6'7 too. It was between 2 and 3 inches he had on Ben but we can't see footwear but assuming they had similar wear. 6'7 1/2 to 6'5 it looked to me.
ShawnG said on 28/Oct/07
i dont believe kane is 7 foot with shoes even on tv they say hes under 7 foot but all i am saying is there is like a 3 or 4 inch difference between him and bigshow kane is 6'10 barefoot and show is bigshow 7'1 barefoot kause in memphis wrestling bigshow said the 7'2 giant wen he faced hogan and hes only a inch shorter then the 7'3 khali there for kane 6'10 barefoot bigshow 7'1 barefoot undertaker 6'9 barefoot there u all go
Viper said on 28/Oct/07
He looks to be under 6-8 with 6-5 Big ben.
Alex2 said on 28/Oct/07
There is NO way Kaneis under 6'8'',just no way, he is still HUGE
KingNick said on 28/Oct/07
Shawn G, I'm very much up for Kane being tall, I believe he's 6'8.5" barefoot, but I don't think he's 7' in shoes. If he is, that means Big Show would have to be 7'4" in shoes. See these photos Vegas posted on the Big Show page Click Here I think Kane is more likely 6'9.5" - 6'10" in his shoes and Show is close to 7'2" in shoes
TR said on 28/Oct/07
shawnG just got done sayin how his grandpa is around 6'8 and taker had him by a good couple inches..
Alex said on 27/Oct/07
I think Kane was at least 6'10 in his old boots he use to wear. 6'7 1/2-6'8 barefoot plus his boots that must have gaven 2-2.5 inches of height to him putting him at 6'10 or a bit more.
The truth said on 27/Oct/07
Shawn, If Kane is 6'10, how come when he was teamed with big show there was a clear 4 inch height difference and Big show is about 7'. Do the maths. Rob your views please.
Alex2 said on 27/Oct/07
We can say that Kane has lost a little bit of height over the years, but no more than 1", id say in prime about 6'9.5'' and now around 6'8.5''
ShawnG said on 27/Oct/07
c kause with kanes boots they make him 6'11 1/2 to 7'0
TR said on 27/Oct/07
I completely agree w/ ya ShawnG
ShawnG said on 27/Oct/07
hes to big to b 6'8 my grandpa is 6'8 i come up to his shoulders an im 5'11 and i got my pik with kane he was way bigger then 6'8 like i said be4 hes 6'10 barefoot
brother_h said on 27/Oct/07
once when they were in new zealand. kane, cm punk, mr kennedy, matt hardy and mvp were at the beach hanging out with some fans.
and im 6'1. and got to meet them aswell.
and the first guys i met upclose was cm punk and mvp and they were both my height, i think. well they are both 6'1.
then i asked matt hardy how tall he was and he said "just over six foot"
then mr kennedy came up with some kids and he was REALLY short. he looked 5'10.
it was hard to tell with kane because he had a head over everyone. even guys who were 6'3 with shoes on.
i asked how tall he was, he joked and said "7 foot" i said "ooookay" then he laughed and said "6'8"
idk they all stayed at the beach til everyone left and new people came.
KingNick said on 26/Oct/07
Wow a lotta 6'10"s around here lately!
D-Lurker said on 26/Oct/07
Shawn says "kane is 6'10 barefoot stop arguing " even kane would argue that statistic..as he says 6'8" himself
ShawnG said on 26/Oct/07
kane is 6'10 barefoot stop arguing gosh undertaker is 6'9 barefoot but kane is 6'11 1/2 to 7 foot with the big inch and a half heels
D-Lurker said on 26/Oct/07
eric says "If we have him on here at 6ft7.5 which is half of an inch from 6ft8 or an inch from 6ft8.5 why not just put him at that"

yep thats an entire 1.25 cm XD *snirks* tis incredible that this little number can be scrutinized..I made a comparison to Mamun's picture and it was hard at first glance to tell the difference, so 6'7" doesn't seem that impossible either..AS a Kane fan myself..I'll stick to 6'8".

btw my average height is 1.83 (peak 1.84 a few years back)..i can go down to 1.80 after a hard days work...more than a 1.25 cm differential. same variance could be for glenn.
cantstop25 said on 25/Oct/07
I remember method man or some rapper made a song for kane once, and kept saying kane was 7'3"
JohnR said on 25/Oct/07
Kanes 6'10. k no more argueing :)
dave said on 25/Oct/07
I agree completely. Some people look shorter due to posture - such as Kane in the Roethlisberger pic. Streched out he may very well be the 6'8.5 he says.
chris said on 25/Oct/07
LOL.. i understand Eric. Seriously but his not under 6'8 no way.
eric 1 said on 24/Oct/07
LOL Im fine chris its just that this is 1 inch we are all talking not 2 or more. You dont think its possible to mistaken someones height by an inch. Im sticking with what he told me i believe him. He looked 6ft8 and change next to my 6ft6 friend.
KingNick said on 24/Oct/07
eric 1, Jiga, I undertand guys :>)
chris said on 24/Oct/07
calm down eric. kane is 6'7 LOLLL
Jiga said on 24/Oct/07
absoultely Eric!!! i've been saying that as well, since this page began! I mean Kane even said it himself and i doubt he's the type to lie. If he was lying why not just say 7' or 6'10...? Besides usually when someone has 5' 0r 6' .(point) something they're not usually lying!
eric 1 said on 23/Oct/07
why is it sooo hard for you guys to except that the man is 6ft8 to 6ft8.5. ????? This argument is over 1 inch not 2 inches or more. He has verbally answered this questions a million times to millions of people.The answer is always the same. 6ft8 and change. If we have him on here at 6ft7.5 which is half of an inch from 6ft8 or an inch from 6ft8.5 why not just put him at that. I mean for instance the pic with kane and big ben everyone says he looks 6ft7.5 uhhhhhhh maybe big ben had bigger shoes on . Uhhhh maybe kane slouched a little. He slouches alot in pics cause everyone is smaller than him. If he stood straight up you dont think 6ft8 is a possiblity. Another thing why would kane lie????????????????????????
Dave said on 22/Oct/07
dave, i agree totally..... (and im dave too LOL) If the big guys were elongating themselves as much as mike and manmum are, then wed see bigger height differences here for sure. And the smaller guys would look certainly smaller than they do in these pics
anonymous said on 21/Oct/07
kane is probably an inch taller at most than big vis,big vis 6'6",kane 6'7".
KingNick said on 19/Oct/07
nick, amazing job man. you do all the photos in that album?
dave said on 19/Oct/07
Nice work Nick. And notice how the big guys have complete relaxed posture while Manum and Mike are reaching for the stars.
nick said on 19/Oct/07
thank you guys., mamun really produces good photos so we can thank him too.
Da Man said on 19/Oct/07
That's pretty impressive, Nick. Nice work.
Vegas said on 19/Oct/07
nick; that is very well done and very interesting but in truth photos as Da Man has said on a few occasions, not a very scientific way of estimating heights.

still great work.
nick said on 18/Oct/07
Click Here

LISTEN CAREFULLY, here is a height chart i made which i see as being very accurate, i took the photos of the wrestlers and matched them up with extream care. I also rendered the photo so there are no contrast interferences that may affect the picture and estimation of height. On the left hand side there are a series of heights simply look at the height and scroll across to see where the wrestlers meet.

You would be suprised but in the big show photo he is INDEED 6'11, but if he straigtened his back in a military position i wouldnt doubt 7feet any day. Nash looks like he can reach 6'9.5 6'10 with great posture and kane maybe a hair.

Mike, i believe you are standing or leaning to one foot in the photo so i evened you out a little bit, REMEMEBER YOU CAN ADD AN INCH BY SIMPLY FAVORING ON SIDE OF YOUR BODY.

Here you go guys this is as good as your probobly going to get, any feedback would be nice.

ALWAYS REMEMBER that photos can be tricky so you will never really tell by photos when it comes down to the half inch. But i feel that this is close as you can get.
Alex said on 18/Oct/07
Viscera is 6'6 making Kane at least 6'7 there.
With Ben, Kane didn't look anymore than 6'7.5.
Da Man said on 18/Oct/07
Eric, I think Roethlisberger was jokingly standing on his toes in the pic with Starks and Viscera. Viscera and Starks looked about the same height, but so did Ben. In all the other pics Starks was roughly 2" taller than Ben.
Eric said on 18/Oct/07
Kane is not even standing straight up . kane is still taller slouched. Also Viscera is wearing bigger boots now since they are hyping him. Take a look at the pics with Viscera and Big Ben that we had on this site. Then look at kane and big ben. That was before Vis wore the big boots.
Da Man said on 18/Oct/07
Kane is easily taller than Viscera even with poor posture and a lowered head. If Kane had good posture and raised his head in a manner comparable to Viscera it would probably be a 1" - 1.25" difference IMO.
Vegas said on 18/Oct/07
Click Here glen isn't standing fully straight there though based on this photo about a second before the staredown Click Here
Silverwolf said on 18/Oct/07
Hi everyone, I watch WWE sometimes. I jsut saw ECW, where Viscera and Kane went face to face. I must say Viscera's head was MASSIVe and looked to have a cm on Kane. Now Viscera is around 6'7'' but he does wear some pretty big shoes. I always thought kane was around 6'8'' but it looks like Editor Rob has Kane spot on.
gazz said on 17/Oct/07
did anyone see ecw the other day, it involved kand and big daddy v, they had a staredown and kane only had daddy V by half an inch, but im sure kane was creeking his neck and not standing straight.
Da Man said on 17/Oct/07
But even Kane's chin and traps are clearly higher than Mamun's cousins.
Alex said on 17/Oct/07
Cantstop, I agree. Reason his cousin and Kane look about the same height is because Kane's head is longer in length and its also bigger in general too. Kane's head has gotta be what 10-11 inches long and it puts Kane at 6'7 at least, 6'7 1/2 likely.
cantstop25 said on 16/Oct/07
these guys are getting downgraded becasue thre build makes them look smaller next to the tall skinny guys, mamums cousin and kareem have much smaller heads then sid and kane
KingNick said on 15/Oct/07
BRM86, you'd make a lot of people happy here if you could post that pic :>)
chris said on 15/Oct/07
Guys lifts and shoes do really make a different.. My friend and i are both 6'2 and whenever his wearing normal sneakers or sand shoes and im barefoot, he seems to be noticebally taller than me
BRM86 said on 15/Oct/07
A friend of mine who is a ligit 6'6" barefoot (I measured him personally) and about 6'7 1/2" in his shoes met Kane about a year ago and took his pic with him. Kane had him beat by 2 inches eaisly and in the pic they are both wearing dress shoes and Kane looked liked he was hunched a little. I would bet Kane is around 6'8'' barefoot and probally 6'9'' or so in his prime.
KingNick said on 14/Oct/07
Supermanfan380, I agree.
Supermanfan380 said on 13/Oct/07
Sid kind of has a smallish head. His shoulder height is roughly the same or taller than UT and Kanes. Not only that, but in the famous face to face pics, neither were barefoot, and Sid was leaning his head back, this naturally moves the eyes up, yet lowers the top of the head. There is not a big difference between these 3 guys in height.
hero said on 13/Oct/07
Damn! he really is a big red machine...more than 530 pounds that's power.....good for him and i really think he's 6'8.5.regards
Alex said on 13/Oct/07
Still I think Kane would slightly edge out Sid in height if they went face to face. UT had Sid by about 1/2 inch and Kane is at least as tall as UT in UT's peak.
Alex said on 12/Oct/07
Also I wonder if that 535lbs is a max or does he actually get reps out of it. More than just 1-2 reps I am talking about too.
JT said on 12/Oct/07
Click Here It does look like Kane is a little closer to the camera though. Mamun
Supermanfan380 said on 11/Oct/07
Before his knees went to hell he was claimed to have been able to Squat and Deadlift 700 pound range. That is a LOT of power for a guy who is OVER 6'6", because of the distance the weight has to go.

Means a lot more power than what it takes for a guy who is a foot shorter to put that kind of weight up.
Mamun said on 11/Oct/07
When I asked Kane last year how much he Benches , he told the entire audiance
535 . Then I asked were they full benches and he said yes .

Eric said on 9/Oct/07
Ben Kane was billed at 6ft9 as Isaac Yankem.
Ray said on 9/Oct/07
Kane is still HUGE but at his largest (in his prime) was back somewhere around 2000-2002 when he had the tank top (and seemed like he was definitely on the juice if not before); I could easily see him as being able to bench 500+lbs then. He was a monster. Shame he never got a decent title run; at least he got it once for one day but I think he should have gotten the belt for a decent run at some point; he deserves it; he's been around for a while, has above par skills, and seems to have good work ethic and respect. He did job many times throughout the years - so does everyone else, except for one wrestler really that is now injured but Kane jobbed which seemed a lot more than average. I remember they did that to Big Show for a while too; those guys shouldn't be losing every week; geez. I think Kane does need a reimaging soon.
Da Man said on 9/Oct/07
Isaac Yankem DDS was billed at 6'9".
KingNick said on 9/Oct/07
Ben, his height as Isaac Yankem was all over the place. When he debuted at Summerslam '95, McMahon said in commentary "He's 6 feet 10 inches". On a WWF Colisuem Video tape, Doc Hendrix referred to him as "six nine!" At Survivor Series 95, JR said in commentary "Big guy, he's about 6'8" or 6'9" "

And btw, I think Glen Jacobs is an amazing wrestler and entertainer. He's one of the best they have, he's just humble enough to not demand to win every match and let the other guys he fights look good.

And I'm sorry, I respect Cena immensely and I think he's fantastic, but I hate his character. The only reason he made so much money headlining was because every 18-35 male went into attendance praying to God he'd finally lose the title to finally shut up all the 8-12 year old kids. I was at Summerslam this year, the place went into SHOCK when he retianed the belt. After it went off the air, people started throwing sh*t in the ring. Cena actually broke character and stole a sign from ringside saying "If Cena wins, we riot" and started daring people to get in the ring.
Vegas said on 9/Oct/07
as yankem he was billed at 6'9 (the world's largest dentist)
ben said on 9/Oct/07
What height was kane billed at when he was isaac yankem? they never made a big deal about his height then, im sure he was billed as 6'5? think he looks 6'8.
He's still in good shape, but looks like he stopped taking his vitamins in 2003.
I know hes strong but i read that sid used to bench over 500 as well, and i recall scott steiner saying he benched 650 when he had the fued with triple h.. somehow i dont believe him, arn anderson said in his bood rick steiner squats 800lbs +
Warrior used to do behind the neck press with 300lbs for reps.
Da Man said on 9/Oct/07
I would say Glen is a very good wrestler, you can see that in his old Japanese shoot matches and occasionally as Kane. The Kane repertoire really doesn't highlight his skills.
Da Man said on 9/Oct/07
Alex, I read on the Andre the Giant page Mamun said he thought Kane looked almost 7'0" in person, he only brought his estimate down after looking at the photo.

Hey Vegas one reason why Kane may not be so popular is simply because he is not being put over as a monster or as a real contender for the WHC or other titles. eg. He was beat by Mark Henry from a bear hug, when Batista and Taker are kicking Henry's ass. He's been jobbing a lot and hasn't really been on TV a great deal. He hasn't been on the last one or two PPV's.
Alex said on 9/Oct/07
Vegas, Kane isn't a bad wrestler. Not the best but above average I'd say. I do like him, not as much as I did though. Sucks he was only given the World/WWE/WWF title only once in his career and it was only for 1 day.
Alex said on 8/Oct/07
What did Mamun estimate Kane at anyway?
Vegas said on 8/Oct/07
popularity can easily be measured in gate receipts, merchandise sales and tv ratings. How many PPVs (especially Summerslams/wrestlemanias) have guys like Big Show/kane etc headlined in the last few years, not too many i bet. Cena blows everyone away in terms of popularity at present, his merchandise sales at shows i have been to recently is nothing short of amazing; 80% of the WWE audience will probably be wearing his gear.

Easily the most over/popular wrestlers of the last 10 years are; in no real order: austin, rock, cena, jericho, triple h, new age outlaws (98-99), eddie, mysterio, angle (i probably missed a bunch).

glen is a very good wrestler, but the problem is he doesn't really fit into a demographic like many other wrestlers eddie, mysterio (latino audience), cena, babyface edge (kid, female audience), jericho, angle, benoit (smark audience)

@superman fan, i agree with pretty much everything you said there

@ Da Man,... yeah i heard that, foley said kane was repping out well over 400.... madness.... and also, i heard his max bench is in the latter 500s (back in his prime).... and also the superstars (especially taker) would say kane was UNBELIEVABLE in the gym, he was the strongest of everyone, even people like big show.... Undertaker said kane in his prime was the strongest person he had ever met in his life! (undertaker my yard dvd)

Vegas, I have always been a bigger fan of the monsters than guys like Angle, eddie, benoit, cena.

Of those, only one still works for the WWE, and two others are dead. Really sad what happened.

I never really was a big Benoit fan, but I was still shocked by what happened.

Do you have any real numbers, stats showing kane to not be as popular? Or is that just anecdotal?
Da Man said on 8/Oct/07
I think people are more likely to be interested in the size of Kane, Taker, Sid, Nash, Show, etc. than they are with guys like Angle, Benoit and the like. It's pretty damn obvious the Angle, Jericho, or Benoit types aren't exactly big guys.

I think the main problem with the Kane gimmick is that he has become a jobber over the last few years and has participated in too many soap opera angles. Kane used to be over with the fans, today not as much, I think Kane needs a gimmick overhaul or reimagining. Regardless, Jacobs seems to have tons of respect from the locker room. If I was a WWE writer I would have Kane's face severly burned in an angle, have him go away for 6 months or so and return as a "monster" with a mask, new costume and a big push leading up to a Smack Down championship reign.

Here is a prefect example. Man in picture is claimed to be 6'7" and 300 pounds. That is around the same height and weight as Kane really is, yet this guy would not be even close to as imposing as Glen in person, all because the body composition is so different.

This is also and example of how muscle, even though it is more dense than fat, will still make your silhouette bigger than fat will, as muscle is placed so differently on the body.

ya that would work only for the fact that guys like angle, eddie, benoit, cena etc have been the people, fans are interested in, not people like kane. nobody cares whether kane is 7foot or 6 foot, wears a mask or not, is heel or face, the guy isn't over and never will be.
Vegas said on 8/Oct/07
the guy says kane frequents his gym in knoxville, i have asked him time and time again to produce a photo of him and jacobs but nothing yet.
Supermanfan380 said on 8/Oct/07
I think the reason that the WWE exaggerates, is to put an idea in the minds of the audience just how BIG these guys really would look in person. They also want to sell a
Da Man said on 8/Oct/07
Where is this gym supposed to be? On a side note, I remember reading a blurb somewhere (in the late '90s IIRC) in which Dave Meltzer claimed that Jacobs was the strongest WWE superstar in the gym. That was Jacobs in his prime though.
Vegas said on 8/Oct/07
the guy that keeps PM on youtube says he saw kane benching 550lb about 2 months in his gym. we have no way to prove this guys claims though :(
Da Man said on 8/Oct/07
Mick Foley said he once witnessed Jacobs benching 405 lbs. in sets of 10. That is ridiculous, his max was probably well over 500 lbs. Pretty amazing for a ~6'8" man.
Dave said on 8/Oct/07
okay, well whether hes 6'7 or 6'8 or one of those hilarious heights some of these fan-boy-teens say he is,... at the end of the day the man is huge, not only his height, but his physique... hes an easy 300lb and built like a tank and whatever it turns out, he is a giant. i think hes 6'8 especially with this new pic containing mamun. But hes not much more than that, and i think its about time we all agreed on it. i think anywhere between 6'7 and 6'8 is fair.

Big man indeed, look at that forearm! he used to bench over 500lbs!
anonymous said on 8/Oct/07
kane has at least 11 inches or more on that 5'8" man.

Errrm, folks - what
venus said on 7/Oct/07
I don't get it. Why do wrestlers exaggerate their height so much? I knew Kane was huge, but I always knew he wasn't 7 feet. He looks 6'8 to me.
Alex said on 7/Oct/07
Vegas, I agree. Kane has put on some weight.
nannon said on 7/Oct/07
this isnt the origional kane, the origional had hair and burns on his face and was alot shorter than this!
Vegas said on 7/Oct/07
Mamun is after saying on another page that he powerlifts and weighs between 205-220lb. Kane must have put on an awful lot of weight since i saw him in 2004, that Jason75 dude that keeps msg me might be correct, he said he weighed jacobs at a few pounds over 300lb a while back
Halb said on 7/Oct/07
I reckon the 6 ft 7.5 in est above is prolly quite accurate.
Alex said on 7/Oct/07
Danimal, you also gotta understand some of these newbie are in their mid teens so of course they're going to expect Kane to be 6'10-7'0. I thought the man was 6'11 for years in my teens up until like 20. It wasn't until a few years ago when I really started focusing on their real heights.
