Kane with a ligit 6 foot 6 inch in street clothes make your own assumption
brm86 said on 25/Mar/08
I personally think anything under 6'7.5" is rediculous for Kane and UT. Imho Kane is still an easy 6'8". Maybe slightly taller.

That is a cool video anonymous; at 5:30 look at the back top of Taker's head - they look the same height to me.
KingNick said on 25/Mar/08
chris, it worked on Sid's page he got upgraded .5" an inch ya never know! Keep voiting guys!
MK said on 25/Mar/08
KingNick, Atoadaso, D-lurker, lets see some genuine pics of Kane/Taker either barefoot or with similar footwear before Rob gets berated yet again.
chris said on 25/Mar/08
i wish someone found a pic of kane in street clothes standing next to a 6'6-6'9 person... would be an accurate estimation..
no matter what vote you do or whatever,, i doubt they will change his height to 6'8
D-lurker said on 24/Mar/08
Yea a vote for 6ft8 here. hehe, yea i'm just chiming in here
Atoadaso said on 24/Mar/08
My vote would be 6'8" as well
said on 24/Mar/08Click Here
5:30 in the this video is the best evidence to show kane edges out taker by atleast an inch
KingNick said on 24/Mar/08
Mark, you count my vote. Let's do it like this, if you want Kane upgraded, post:
PLEASE UPGRADE KANE TO 6'8" OR 6'8.5"
Yaspaa said on 23/Mar/08
He does look 12-13" taller than Mamun.
Mark said on 22/Mar/08
I think we should have a vote to increase kane to 6.8 - 6.85
Dave said on 21/Mar/08
well eric, takers posture is horrible in your vid, but the vid of kane in the hotel really goes well for him, he looks simply massive in that video, and thats a BIIIIG doorframe, just look at the average sized guy beside it, hes tiny beside the door! and kane is easily taller than the frame, id say kane looks a 6,9 flat in that vid, and if i didnt know better looking at him for a first time viewer, id say hes close to 6'10... and not only this, aside from a few pics, we are judging kanes height with other wrestlers (whom we dont know the heights of to start with! so they cant be used for comparison) And seeing kane with normal people is an eye opener, hes a LEGIT 6'8 plus massive frame man, and at that height and build he could pass for 6'10 to any normal guy easy.

Heres a good video to use to compare heights. Undertaker in street clothes standing next to undertaker and kane. Click Here
Alex2 said on 20/Mar/08
From all the evidence gatherd on thsi site including Kane on that video, i HIGHLY doubt Kane is anything under 6'8 and i think 6'7 is rediculous for him.
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/08
he is 6'7 i always thought he was not 7 foot as he was smaller than big show
Mark said on 19/Mar/08
If you stop at 1 point in between 20-23 seconds Kane is 2'' taller then the door and seems to haft to duck or tilt his head lower to get under some places in the hotel

"kane does look very tall there, i assume thats a hotel of some kind and usually american hotel room doors are much taller than the standard 6'6 door here in this country (i have been in enough US hotel/motel rooms in my time)"
A standard interior door casing in the US is 6'9" from the floor to the interior of casing trim, 6'8.5" at it's lowest point (that being the .5" trim piece that is mounted around the inner casing that the door seals against). That varies a bit manufacturer to manufacturer, but is pretty much the norm. Industrial type doors seem to run a bit bigger than that, but the hotel in the video seemed to have standard size doors - over 6'8" at it's lowest point, 6'9" at the casing.

Click Here Theres kane out an about with some normal size people being enourmous he was about 1inch taller then the hotel door mayb 2
Nice find, he looks huge in the hotel hallway. And it looks like he def. had to duck under the doorway.
Alex said on 19/Mar/08
Eric, yea thats what I was saying. Put UT at 6'7 or even just below if Kane is at 6'7.5 on here.
Edge at 6'7 is probably one of the more funnier estimates on a height on here yet. I can see some people thinking UT is 6'10.5 but Edge 6'7? LOL

jb said on 18/Mar/08
kane looks 6ft 8 easily maybe 6ft 9 at tallest, undertaker was actually .25 taller than albert who's 6ft 6.5 - 6ft 7 so taker is definately only 6ft 7 and has about .75 on taker so kane is around 6 ft 7.75 in
Red said on 18/Mar/08
I think UT was 6
Eric said on 18/Mar/08
If you keep kane at 6ft7.5 than taker should at least be moved to 6ft7 even.
Alex said on 18/Mar/08
Eric, I'd actually downgrade UT on here to 6'7 and you could still keep Kane at 6'7.5 or upgrade him to 6'8 but no more than that.
said on 17/Mar/08
i was ringside for that sheffield show in 2005 and there was at least 4 inches between kane and big show when big show stood up straight (his posture was very loose in the ring) like here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
here is another video of an event i attended where show was much taller than kane wrestlemania 22 (3.10 onwards and 10.50 onwards) Click Here
Joe said on 17/Mar/08
The Mamun pick makes me think kane is alot taller then we are giving him credit for. Mamum is 2in under kanes chin With Mamun standing tall. so say kanes chin is 5.10 with a very large head probably 11 inches probably puts kane at 6.9 in sneakers 6.8 barefoot. Kane is slotching very badly in the eric pic so no accurate describtion can be made
Alex2 said on 17/Mar/08
Kane looks nothing below 6'8 with Mamun.
Eric said on 17/Mar/08
Hey guys i have a good question. Everyone can agree mostly that kane over the years has always been taller than the undertaker. Every height comparison over the years has proven this. So lets say that kane only has .5 to 1 inch on undertaker. Well if undertaker is listed on this website as 6ft7.5 also and we all know kane is either .5 to 1 inch taller than why is kane listed at 6ft7.5. I asked him his height he told me a little over 6ft8.
jake said on 16/Mar/08
looks about 6-9 to me in the pics above
KingNick said on 16/Mar/08
Is it just me or does Kane look taller in street clothes than he does in the ring? I mean he completely dwarfs Mamun
said on 15/Mar/08
this probably puts kane 6.10 in ring gear. Click Here
a few shots in their look like 2-3 inch between kane big show good look at kanes boots a 5:50
Chad said on 15/Mar/08
Im rather sick of everyone bringing this thing up a kanes huge boots everyone says it if you watch kanes wrestling today his boots a usually just standard wrestling boots mayb 1.5 if not less and hes still towars over people like snitsky chuck palumbo and has an easy ince over taker in the ring mayb .5 out of it
Fred said on 15/Mar/08
Kane is clearly leaning in the eric pic if he stood straight up he'd easy have a head over him
KingNick said on 15/Mar/08
I see at least 6" in the Kane/Orton backstage video. And I think that's only cuz Kane is in his gear. My opinion - Kane 6'8" to 6'8.5" barefoot, 6'10" in his boots.
Mark said on 15/Mar/08
i believe Kane is 6.8 it is the most logical height hes taller then taker throughout the years i think 6.8 is the most reasonible answer
Ben the GP said on 14/Mar/08
Okay just sayin this Kane looked 6'9.5 next to Ortin if not taller , Ortin is 6'3.5 - 6'4 legit in gear probaly 6'5 too. Big Show and Kane are closer in height in that video then in the picture also I am a fighter to make these guys seem tall but Kane isn't 6'8.5 anymore more like 6'7,.5 too
said on 14/Mar/08
In thie video it looks 4 inches between Orton and Kane.Click Here
Alex said on 14/Mar/08
You could push him up to 6'8 here likely but no more than that. The 6'7.5 listing here may be dead on I think because Kane looks over 6'7 flat. But he looked 6'8 with Orton though.
Kane in lifts back then could have looked 6'10-6'11.
Cobra said on 14/Mar/08
Kane is billed as 7ft, and he said about his height he is 6ft8 or 6ft9.
Kane is really tall, but he doesn`t say his billed height. So its kinda unlogic why he should round up his real height by an inch, which is still away from his billed height.
Bottom line is I think that Kanes height varies between 6ft9 and 6ft8 during the day.
Eric said on 14/Mar/08
Mk i cant see why your gonna sit here and say you cant see him being 6ft8. You are talking about less then an inch here. .5 SO that means if kane is 6ft7 undertakers 6ft6 orton is 6ft3 batista 6ft2 HHH 6ft1 cena and austin under 6ft. Come on . Even in the year 2002 when he wore regular sized boots he still looked 6ft8. IN regular black dress shoes he seems that size. In dress shoes hes prob 6ft8.5 and barefoot 6ft8 even.
Eric said on 14/Mar/08
In the huge boots he used to wear it boosted him to about 6ft10 in 1999 when he fought the big show. If you look at the height comparison from then till the ones now its obvious he had on bigger lifts. MK i met the guy plenty of times in person. One time with my friend fred whos 6ft6. He had 2 inches easy on him . Now theres about 4 inches difference between him and big show. The difference between kane and big show in height is the same difference as kane and orton. 4 inches. Orton 6ft4 kane 6ft8. Kane 6ft8 show 7ft.
The1stHunter said on 14/Mar/08
I would give him no less than 6'8 1/4!
alex said on 14/Mar/08
Kane looks biger than the undertaker, it could in the genes righ know i am 6,f
he looks shorter than i thougt but hes big as damm.

Click Here i found your match chris its in the begining kane does have considerible height over randy about the same in the backstage segment. dont understand why its so hard to believe kane is a ligit 6.8
Nice find, and Kane does have the same height advantage over Orton there at ringside as he does in the recent backstage segment.
MK said on 13/Mar/08
Eric, 6'8'' with the 1998 munsters lifts is the most hes ever looked to me, so 6'7''-6'7.5'' is indeed the better estimate. Vegas, good point about the backstage segments but i think JBL was slouching next to Orton, realisticly theres a 1'' differance favoring JBL, with Orton the better posture.
hs2008 said on 13/Mar/08
I agree! But there's probably people that don't, even though he looks a clear 6'8" to me.
Chris said on 13/Mar/08
Agreed. Well his clearly got over 3' inchs on Randy there. If it was 3' then he would obviously be 6'7 because orton is 6'4. Kane looks to have atleast 4' on orton,, so nothing short of 6'8
Eric said on 13/Mar/08
I agree. I think we have enough evidence to boost him up to 6ft8- 6ft8.5
Do we all agree???
Alex said on 13/Mar/08
Kane was a good few inches taller than Orton on Raw this week. He looked 6'8.
Chris said on 13/Mar/08
Guys i just found something interesting. Pause the segment on RAW (kane and randy) at 37 seconds,,, the difference between them there looks the usual height difference between kane and randy where randy does look very tall... Its only when randy goes right upto kane where you can really see the difference of height (where kane looks taller). SO maybe kanes not wearing super lifts or standing on his toes or watever.. ???????
Mamun said on 13/Mar/08
My friends Nick, Chris and vegas and all the other good people here I have
favour to ask you ! Now you have a good picture of me and virgil . My request
is this which is also my dream photo opp :- see if you can by putting all your
respectable computer skills put me and Andre the Giant , 7'8" alam Chana, Sid,
Tiny Ron, kevin Nash & kane into the same picture . Chriss you have done some
thing impresive like this before now here is another one with equal number of
very tall giants . You can use virgil as the refernce and I have a very good
picture of him and Andre standing . If you do make this pictur please make
sure that Andre is standing next to 7'8" Alam Channa . But I am also begging
you guys to do justice to Alam Channa and Andre because some memembers here
loves to see a 6'5" Andre .I shall be very gratful if you tried !

Dave said on 12/Mar/08
Kane looks near 7 feet there!!! and randy is a legit 6'4, no doubt.... my thoughts are randy is barefoot and kane has huge wrestling boots, to sell his height.... hes certainly not on his toes tho, hehe.... but still, kane looks an EASY 6'10 there, but as we said, it MUST be all trickery.... because kane is never that much taller than orton.... and the vid with orton and JBL, well as we all know JBL's posture is ALWAYS lazy... and he has really small wrestlng boots, and orton is prob wearing lifts..... either way, JBL is still taller barefoot in my opinion, but just like the kane one, its circumstantial.... also, this is backstage in the locker changing rooms, so JBL could technically be barefoot. Nash was also known for doing the odd wcw backstage locker promo barefoot.

Anonymous said on 12/Mar/08
i'd probably have to say randys a ligit 6.4 with comparsion to triple h and cena mayb 6.5 with the wreslting boots on with kane looking 6.10 in the video i haft to say kane is 6.8. 6.9 and if you watched the triple h kane match kane had average lifts on

said on 12/Mar/08
actually MK backstage segments are usually terrible for giving accurate pictures e.g. here steve austin looks to be within 1 inch of the undertaker so is taker about 6'2 or 6'3 max Click Here
here ashton kutcher is no taller than christian who the WWE billed at 5'10 and is dwarfed by edge Click Here
DAMN said on 12/Mar/08
no way, dude. kane must be standing on his toes or wear buffalos... strange
Eric said on 12/Mar/08
Randy Orton is taller than Edge and Batista. He has about .5 on edge. Maybe a little more than that on batista.
KingNick said on 12/Mar/08
Kane probably was 6'10" in that vid with Orton but he was in WRESTLING GEAR. That tells me, whatever his actual height is, his gear makes him around 6'10".
Da Man said on 12/Mar/08
Kane has always looked around 4" taller than Orton when angles and perspectives aren't in play. Orton and Edge are probably within .5", Kane's a good 4.5" taller than Edge, so I'm not sure why anyone would think Orton be significantly different?
MK said on 12/Mar/08
Ortons 6'3.5'' at best, Kane has 4'' on Orton at best. Camera angles and positioning can vary in-ring, backstage segments can give a more accurate picture. The Mcmahon/Andre interview from way back was the only confirmed situation where a wrestler was standing on a box.
Chris said on 12/Mar/08
Or maybe he is that big next to Orton? I just saw an old clip from 3-4 years ago, remember orton, batista, kane, VS HBK, goldberg, and RVD???? There is a little part there in the beginning where Randy walks behind Kane. You can see, the height difference is the same as last nights RAW, or the same consistency to say the least.
Chris said on 12/Mar/08
What do you wreckon guys? ide say Kanes never ever looked that big next to Randy Orton. He looks around 6'10 there.
brother_h said on 12/Mar/08
also, 3 years ago, kane had a whole lip over orton. prolly standing on a box. they do that during backstage segments.
but if kane had stood up straight. he would have had a nose over orton. still 5 or 6 inches but he is wearing those boots.
said on 11/Mar/08Click Here
Here's a backstage segment from last night's Raw. I think Kane is wearing his huge lifts there as he looks like 5 inches taller than Orton, who's barely up to his eye level.
Yaspaa said on 11/Mar/08
I do think this guy is a little over 6'7.5 judging from this picture. He has a head plus 2" over the mamster. Large head 10" - 10.5" + the extra 2" = 12" - 12.5". 6'8 - 6'8.5.
That picture with Kane facing the Big Show has Kane tilting his head,losing an inch.
Eric said on 11/Mar/08
I dont know if anyone watched raw last night the 3 hour special but there was a very good and clear height comparison between randy orton and kane in the locker room scene. They were standing head to head and kane had a whole forehead in height taller than orton. Randy Orton is an easy 6ft4 to 6ft4 and change. Orton is clearly taller than batista as well. Kane had an easy 4 inches on Randy orton. Someone needs to post the tube video or that pic.

When Big Show and Kane teamed together 2 years ago, Big Show had 4 inches or maybe a bit more on Kane.

from what i've seen with kane and big show. big show has 2 inches on kane if that. big show looks rather enourmous when compared to kane but thats because bigshow has say 200lbs on kane and is so much wider so that puts kane around 6.10 in ring gear 6.8 bared foot with a 6.10 ligit bigshow 7ft in ring gear big show. it seems logical
chris said on 7/Mar/08
Kane looked really tall on Smackdown last night. If Chuck Palumbo is 6'7, then kane looked around 6'9 - 6'10.

There's also a pretty good Kane/Taker comparison at 00:26. Oddly enough, Kane's knees don't really appear any higher than Taker's (or even Sara's) there but he's at least an inch taller.

Chris, Kane has around 5" on Edge, or at least he did on that "The Cutting Edge" clip and also in the pic with Edge, Foley, and Harley Race where all were in suits (not ring gear). Click Here

he could have gained a large amount of weight, thats 180lb after 9

MVP is likely 6'0, 6'1 at most. His sheet there says 180lbs too. Did he gain that much weight since? He isn't no 250lber. More like 220lbs or something.
Chris said on 4/Mar/08
lets be realistic,, we've seen 6'3 men facing off with kane and have looked taller than "6'3"? to claim MVP.. true??
Kane had around 5' on MVP in that clip
said on 4/Mar/08
mvp's prison release form Click Here
his boots don't look that big, certainly no bigger than kanes so he would be 6'1.5" approx in boots; but its impossible to tell how many inches kane has on MVP based on that video
mark said on 4/Mar/08
Da man you may be right as i am not to good with judging height differences but im sure somone with some more experience in finding some pictures can get some mvp kane pics. as for mvp being 6.3 who knows but he does appear to have some junk in his shoes to boost him. but in the video if you pause at around 1:23 you can see both man full height. tip of mvps head just scratching kane nose
Da Man said on 4/Mar/08
Mark, 4-5 inches over MVP? At the only point in that video without a wierd angle (~00:38, both are in the same plane in the ring though neither are standing straight) it looks like over 7" between them. MVP looks to only come up to Kane's mouth and that seems to be the case several other times throughout the video, though there is so much movement it's hard to say for sure. Any other pics of MVP and Kane?
said on 4/Mar/08
To be honest, I think MVP has some junk in his shoes too Click Here
look at photo 23. Maybe those MAKE him 6'3"
KingNick said on 4/Mar/08
I do NOT think MVP is 6'3". What you guys think? I was thinking more around 6' he's not much bigger than Flair
MK said on 4/Mar/08
Mark, is that the same MVP whos a good half inch shorter than 6ft Matt Hardy/seemed just as tall as 5'11'' Rick Flair. MVP's not near 6'3'', Kane looked around 7-8'' taller. Kanes been billed 7'0'', called 6'10''(By commentators not everyone Chris), pics and evidence vary, maybe he was 6'8'' now 6'7.5''
Chris said on 4/Mar/08
YES kane has been CALLED 6'10 many times but thats from peoples mouths. pics and evidence show around 6'8
said on 3/Mar/08Click Here
Thats the link im dont know how to do the clickible link but. Kane standing toe to toe with a 6 foot 3 inch mvp, kane with about 4 or 5 inches on mvp. I still believe a 6.8 kane and a 6.8 taker. obviously taker fans want him to be taller then kane and kane fans want him to be taller then taker but it is possible for 2 people to have an exact height there gigantic people and Kane has worn lifts and taker has worn lifts to probably just as big as kanes . but it all boils down to if your a undertaker fan or a kane fan 6.8 kane 6.8 undertaker peace out kaneanights : )
MK said on 3/Mar/08
Kane has been called 6'10'' many times in the last few years which is all the proof needed to know hes not. 6'8'' even at his peak is a strech.
Alex said on 3/Mar/08
When the taller guys looks down and the shorter guy looks up its always going to be a smaller difference which you can't go by.

KingNick said on 2/Mar/08
In the Big Show Video, I think there's more like 2" there if Show straightened his head. Whatever Kane's actual height is, I'm thinking he was 6'10" in his boots there maybe a little more. Big Show I feel like is either 6'11" or 7' legit

Atoadaso said on 2/Mar/08
Kane has been consistently taller than Undertaker throughout the years, from Isaac Yankem, from his debut as Kane, until now. I can understand claims of him losing a little height, but definitely not more than an inch, more like 0.5", as there seems to be a heightened understanding of how people shrink over the years on this site, especially with wrestlers. Kane is probably 0.5"-0.75" taller than Undertaker and his footwear advantage will boost him to over 1" in some photos.
Ben the GP said on 2/Mar/08
Kane is nowdays only an inch taller then bigdaddyV likely with lifts he is now probaly 6'7.5 next to V without lifts he is only about .50 inches above a 6'6 big daddy v or a bdv at 6'6.5 too
Da Man said on 2/Mar/08
He was over an inch taller than Taker when he wore the 2001 and earlier style 2" mega lifts. He consistently taller than Taker in his current footwear which looks to provide no more height boost than a pair of Nike Shox or Timberlands would, and Taker is hardly wearing flats himself.
Anonymous said on 2/Mar/08
I really don't think Kane is taller than 6'7 nowadays. He only has 0.5 of an inch on BDV, as evident from previous pictures; and he has often worn large boots with taller guys. For instance, he is only slightly taller than Taker while he wears huge lifts, which i believe means that Taker is the taller of the two, if by maybe 0.5 inch. If this guy was over 6'8 or even 6'7.5 barefoot then he wouldn't need to do this, and he also wouldn't be towered by almost 6 inches by the 7ft-7'1 Khali.

Electric Shock, i think your 100% right. I can understand that. You couldnt say it any more clear. Same goes for Undertaker as well. Thats makes a lot of sense for the simple fact that they are always traveling, getting injuries and working there butts off.
Alex said on 1/Mar/08
The tallest person here with proof was a guy named Petter and he was 6'7.5 and had pics to prove it and he def. looked it. He still posts here and there.
Electric Shock said on 29/Feb/08
a big problem with heights that this board tends to neglect is that no one has one height; you have a height range.
I tried this with my father once, measuring him.
In the morning, my father was 6'3.5", after a hard days work (which he spends on his feet) he was under 6'3" (about 6'2.75").
similarly, I think Kane has a height varioation of exactly 5 inches taller than that of my dad. If you catch Kane at a bad moment, he could be as short as 6'7.75", but if you catch him at a good moment, he could be breaking 6'8.5" heading upto 6'9".
Height variation is especially common with people who are heavy (in the case of 320 lb Kane, he weighs as much as two men.) It's quite possible Kane's been caught in pictures after a long day of travel, and with his knees bent, and looks to be only between 6'7"-6'8". There are other pictures which seem to put him at 6'8" or 6'9". So I'd put his average at about 6'8 1/8"- 6'8 1/4", with him pulling off both sides of the coin at various times.
George said on 29/Feb/08
you're right about that, in my family though i'm technically the second tallest at 7'0" (213cm) but the heaviest at 320, so I'm well built, my younger brother is the tallest, 7'0.5" (215cm) 300 lbs. kinda skinny
KingNick said on 29/Feb/08
A lot of guys come on here and claim to be 7ft, show us a picture. If you are, get some pics with some wrestlers! You'll make a lot of friends here fast.
Alex said on 29/Feb/08
George, youre def the tallest person on this board now if you're really that tall.
Alex2 said on 29/Feb/08
Lol George,you really that big? Anyway George are you well built like Kane or skinny? Id hate to be 7 foot and skinny.
erik king said on 29/Feb/08
i say that kane is anywhere fom 6'8 or 7'2 kanes a big guy so im going to say that his a great wrestler and that hes the best wrestler in the wwe so go kick some ass kane
Da Man said on 29/Feb/08
Kane hasn't worn the 2" heels since 2001.
MK said on 29/Feb/08
Great pics once again JT, huge lifts on Kane there which suggests that they are both dead even perhaps, wwf obviously wanted Kane the taller. In reality i'd say Kane is 0.5 taller though.
said on 28/Feb/08Click Here
For Kane, those look like really flat boots (around 1.25" heels) compared to his usual Munsters, which approach 2 inches. If those were his boots in the video with Taker, hmmm
George said on 28/Feb/08
Kane, 7 feet? I care to scoff, the Big Red Machine is only at most 6'8.5" , 6'9" peak, I am 7 feet legit, well 6'11.75" anyway, my younger brother Jeremy is 7'0.5" and my kid sister Kendra is 6'3". So please, Kane, don't try to pass as seven feet tall when me and my bro and the Big Show really are seven feet.
Mr. X said on 28/Feb/08
Kane is NOT 7 feet but however is 6'8" tall.
Da Man said on 28/Feb/08
There's absolutely no way Taker would have edged Kane in the Grishem video. No posible way. When Taker gets nose to nose with Kane in the video you can see he actually straightens out and is forced to look upwards a bit to meet Kane's eyes. Kane's at least an inch taller there, and that's pretty consistent with other in-gear showings. As for footwear, I don't see how Kane is getting more than a 1/2" boost over Taker's gear, seeing as how Kane's boots won't give him any more height boost than a pair of Nike Shox or Timberlands would, and Taker certainly isn't wearing flats nowadays.
said on 27/Feb/08
low camera angles will "minimize" height difference not increase it
i think it is pretty much guaranteed that both guys were wearing this gear, in fact i can bet 100% on that because i was there front row ringside for that royal rumble in san antonio
kane Click Here
taker Click Here Click Here
nick said on 27/Feb/08
I really believe that if taker stood fully straight he would edge kane, I analized the backstage video and i noticed that the camera angle in favor of kane really had an effect on the perception. Recently in the gym i go to i was talking to one of my friends who is 6 foot tall and i looked less than an inch taller than him with my relaxed posture with my arms to my sides, but when i stood straight i really noticed the difference of almost 3 inches, Its hard to jusge with those backstage angles,
Ray said on 27/Feb/08
Da Man: that seems pretty fair. Vegas: camera angle seems to have been the culprit there with Kane and Taker backstage. The camera was lower than both of them looking up so........like Da Man said, there seems to be around a 1" difference between Take and Kane in the ring and that is pretty consistent with all the vids and photos. Now how much footwear advantage does Kane have over Taker? Well subtract that from the 1" difference andf there's the real height difference between them. It could be .5" Kane has in footwear advantage over Taker but it could be a little more too.
Da Man said on 27/Feb/08
In ring gear I would say Kane is about 1" taller than Taker, and thats pretty consistent. Every single time I've seen a close up (without an angle, perspective or posture advantage for either) of the two in current ring gear Kane has looked around a full inch taller. Barefoot, I'd guess the gap is probably less, more like a .5" advantage for Kane.
said on 27/Feb/08
well this video from january 2007 surely throws more fuel on the fire, kane looks about 2 inches taller than taker here, often backstage videos minimize height difference, not the case here though Click Here
btw kane wasn't in the last elimation chamber
MK said on 27/Feb/08
Undertaker was definitely wearing lifts in that first staredown with Khali. He looks the same mark as Kane in the last few meetings though(watch the elimination chamber again and you'll see). Seems like the brothers need another feud to sort this one out lol.
Ben the GP said on 26/Feb/08
Kane - Billed height:7'0 Height in prime: 6'9 now: 6'7.5 - 6'8
hs2008 said on 26/Feb/08
Yeah, Khali has said 7'2" before but i'm sure he was measured at 7'1" when he started wrestling in DSW. I might just be imagining that though, lol.
chris said on 26/Feb/08
its all about different camera angles. there was a scene a while back at some main event where can was standing next to great khali (i think it was cyber sunday), anyway kane looked much taller next to khali than he did last week..
MK said on 26/Feb/08
I'd say most wrestlers break out the lifts once khali is mentioned. Kane probably just cant be bothered.
Gollum said on 26/Feb/08
Is it me or did Undertaker look taller to Khali than Kane does.
Alex2 said on 25/Feb/08
I and i think Danimal thinks Khaliisover 7'1" id say 7'1.5" or 7'2" he just DOES look it,all the time, and hes even stated 7'2" before.
hs2008 said on 25/Feb/08
Yeah, maybe! Lol, i'm not that precise though, i'd just go for 6'8" and 7'1" but you might be more accurate dave. Kane is getting a little bulky lol. How much do you think he ways these days, legit?
dave said on 25/Feb/08
I think Khali is 7'1'' but it is strange how his eye level is an inch above the top of Kane's head, that usually means 6 inches taller. It could be 6'7.75 for Kane and 7'1.25 for Khali.
MK said on 25/Feb/08
7'1'' seems bang on - Kane looks more 6'7'' these days and getting pretty chuby too
hs2008 said on 25/Feb/08
I understand Khali has a larger head than the average man but I still don't see more than 5" personally. Does anyone think Khali is over 7'1"?
Atoadaso said on 24/Feb/08
Looks like Khali has 6" on Kane - remember his head is larger than an average man's. So, if Kane is wearing his thick soled boots in that match, then he would be equivalent to around 6'7.5" to 6'8" barefoot, putting Khali at over 7'1".
hs2008 said on 24/Feb/08
I see 4.5" or 5" between Khali and Kane wih puts Kane around 6'8".
Alex said on 24/Feb/08
I put Khali at no more than 7'1 at most which places Kane between 6'7 and 6'8 again.
Ghost, you're right it would mean UT is taller than Kane which I don't see. UT was a a little closer to Khali than Kane was.
Ghost said on 24/Feb/08
This is really bizzarre. Comparing by their staredowns with Khali, taker would be atleast an inch taller than Kane, wich doesn't seem right at all.
chris said on 23/Feb/08
Man kane looks small next to the great crappy wrestler
Alex2 said on 23/Feb/08
Humm, i guess so, but that would still put Kane 6'8 minimum with Khali at 7'1-7'2"
said on 23/Feb/08
easily 5 inches alex2, in fact i see a little more, kane is under khali's eyeline Click HereClick Here
ShawnG said on 23/Feb/08
Alex2 he did have only 3 or 4 inches on kane but not 5 and kanes boots were the regular inch sized boots
Alex2 said on 23/Feb/08
Hey Alex you started watching wrestling again LOL? Cool, i saw that but i didnt think 5" more like 3-4" MAX in my eyes, but i guess Kane would have being wearing his munster boots against Khali as he is built "7 foot"
hs2008 said on 23/Feb/08
Khali is 7'1" legit so that makes Kane 6'8", right?
Alex said on 23/Feb/08
Well last night Khali had like 5 inches on Kane.
hs2008 said on 22/Feb/08
He also could've been 6'7.25" or something like that, we don't know. He could have grown up until 19 or 20, we just don't know. It's pretty much impossible to say how tall Kane is today using a snippet from when he was 16.
Alex said on 21/Feb/08
He was listed at 6'7 and could have been 6'6 1/2 roudning up too. Either way he couldn't have grown much at all since then. I think Kane's exact height today is probably 6'7 1/2.
Da Man said on 20/Feb/08
Yea, he very well could have stopped growing at 16 (remember, he was listed 6'7" when 16 y/o, not 17) but he could have also continued to grow until he was 20+. There's just no way of knowing. He obviously didn't have any dramatic growth spurts when 17 and up, but he could have gained another inch easily.
hs2008 said on 20/Feb/08
Yeah, he could've stopped growing at 16 or 17 but i doubt it. He probably grew another inch or inch and a half before he stopped growing. At his tallest he could have been 6'8.5" maybe 6'8" flat today.
Alex said on 20/Feb/08
He could have stopped growing at 17. Many guys do or are very close to it.
Da Man said on 20/Feb/08
According to that link he was 6'7" at 16.
Mamun said on 18/Feb/08
Thanks King Nick for taking my point into consideration !
KingNick said on 18/Feb/08
WEEEEEELLL, well it's the Big Show! Did I call it or what? That was a great segment last night. Honestly Mamum I think Show looked even less than that last night, he looked close to his build in his WCW days.
JT, great find there! Where you finding all these stats? If Kane was 6'7" at 17 he could have definitely grown a little more.
said on 18/Feb/08
Dear friends . I just got the information of what Bigshows official weight
will be when he will join the WWE . It's 44o pounds ! Although you must
remeber that most wrestling sites are highly copyrighted , So it won't be
possible for me to post those articles here .There was an article from a
a very reliable wrestling site called Click Here
once wrote that when Paul Wight joined the WCW as the Giant back in the
early 90's as the "GIANT " or the son of ANDRE, he was being promoted as
420 pounds when his actual body weight was between 370-390 pounds .So when
you do see this new weight of 440 pounds when The Big Show makes a re-entry
into the WWE , I ask of you to please keep an open mind and take these points
into consideration ! I really wish I could post these articles and photos
here to this site but technically I can't .
KingNick said on 15/Feb/08
Maybe Big Show will be back at No Way Out?
hs2008 said on 15/Feb/08
LOL!. That photo of Orton on nodq.com is hilarious. He looks real cute and slightly geeky! Deffo 6'4" these days, maybe 6'3" then.
said on 15/Feb/08
JT posted a few photos of Big show during his basketball days when he weighed between 325-335lb so a 350lb Big show would look something like this, that would be an eye-opener Click Here
Alex said on 15/Feb/08
Down to 350lbs? I heard 420-440lbs. If he is down to 350lbs then he's much closer to his College basketball days and is going to be lean. But looking at recent pics of him he doesn't look that lean.
Tom said on 15/Feb/08
Not a chance in hell.
He is still a good 420+.
He signed a new contract with them sometime back.
They going to try to re-introduce him unexpectedly, the way they did Cena.
Mamun said on 15/Feb/08
Guess what good People !!! I just heard Show is trying to make a come back
to the WWE and is down to only 350 pounds after an unsuccessfull attemp to
be a boxer !!! He will be represented by HOGAN .
brother_h said on 15/Feb/08
NEW PIC OF RANDY ORTONN!
look at NODQ.com
its of him with his 6'1 dad and randy is only a teenager. they look like their wearing normal sneakers.
so i say randy is 6'4 in that pic. he is closer to the cam though and looks like his mom and dad are on a small hill. umm you guys check. idk how to add links on here sorry =/
tuga said on 13/Feb/08
I guess not Frank, show did use very huge boots at the time but there his footware looks normal. Big show

I found this video which shows a height comparison between kane and big daddy V (when he was Viscera) at a photo shoot behind the scenes of summerslam 2007 commercial....Click Here
its near the end
Supermanfan380 said on 11/Feb/08
How many people in person will believe a guy who looks 6'9", is 7ft?
So even with a 1" lift in his boots, at 6'8" legit barefoot, he looks 6'9", but he could easily be passed at 7ft, and even easier to pass as 6'10". The point is you don't actually have to add a full 4", as no one is measuring him. You just boost him a little and exaggerate the rest with words from the anouncers like: "SEVEN FOOT MONNNSTEEERRR!!!"
I am saying 6'8" for Glen at this time.
Frank said on 11/Feb/08
Tuga i believe in that Video when Big Show calles out Taker Show is not wearing his lifts ??
Anonymous said on 10/Feb/08
Nick simply put taker
Alex said on 10/Feb/08
Wait that picture with Big Show, UT and Vince backstage isn't an actual picture. It was put together? lol I didn't know that.
said on 9/Feb/08
tuga do you call that standing straight?? this is a posture an 80 year old man adopts, lol the dude is all hunched over, people are measured standing tall remember Click Here
the second photo i assume you mean this is a photoshop, great work by nick and all but it wouldn't stand up in court if it came to proving how tall taker is Click Here
here is another staredown between taker and show, watch big shows posture carefully at the start and then pause at 11 seconds just directly after taker slaps show, thats Big show standing fully erect Click Here
lets turn this debate on its head shall we, i propose that batista is no more than 2-2.5 inches shorter than undertaker Click Here
even better seeing as low camera angles mean jack i thus propose that batista is no more than half an inch (at best) shorter than taker Click Here
said on 9/Feb/08
No more than 4 inches between taker and show I think, no low camera angles here:Click Here
or here:Click Here
this is from chris photo album I believe
you have both photos there, taker with straight head is no way more than 4 inches shorter, maybe even a little less.
Difference may differ a little bit according to BOTH men footware.
chris175 said on 8/Feb/08
has to be 6-8 or 6-9 if eric is 5-11.25, i dont really know though, im not good with heights above 6-5 lol
said on 8/Feb/08
Shock of Electric; low camera angles totally skew the real perspective of the subjects, here is another example 6'3 listed ben affleck and 5'10 matt damon, there looks half an inch at best between damon and affleck there Click Here
anyways here is the video of that taker/show staredown you posted, 4-4.5" inches easy between them at the 5.15 mark also check out the 5.56 mark Click Here
show makes viscera and taker look like high-school kids there
another video of undertaker/big show in 1999 again 4-5" difference there Click Here
Then what about this photo circa 2001-2002 again 5 inches Click Here
look at takers boot again in JT's photo, the front of the boot is clearly off the ground which is very strange, he also walks funny to the ring in first video i posted Click Here

said on 8/Feb/08
The Undertaker has not "shrunk," there's no logical reason for it. He's not heavy for his frame, he hasn't reached the shrinking age yet, he's had no back or neck surgeries, his posture is perfect. I also do not understand how you determined the heel measurements in that pic. You basically cut the ball of his foot off and made it into an internal heel/lift but where does his actual foot go? If you've seen his 1998 - 1999 footwear Click Here
the heels are .75". These are not lifts. Big Show's boots are twice as thick as Taker's by the by. Standard wrestling boots today are 1.25", and on and off Kane wears lifts that bring him up another .75" on top of that. Boots are generally made of .25" compressed layers or entire soles made in a form which Kane, Vis and Mark Henry all use from time to time right now. That pic of the Big Show and Taker is not nearly as extreme an angle as Kareem - Magic, in the comparison, there's no more than 1" angle offset Taker Big Show, and almost 3" offset in the other. 6'7.5" for Kane is impossible since he and Taker are the exact same height and have been since the first time they were ever seen together, and there's no way Taker is under 6'8" either.
jake said on 7/Feb/08
omg its kane ur insane can i call u hows the undertaker
said on 6/Feb/08
JT says on 26/Jan/08
Photos from very low angles minimize the actual height differential.
spot on, Jason disagreed with this IIRC over on big shows page (he said you can't compare humans to buildings), now unless magic grew to 6'11 at least i think its safe to say very low angles minimize the actual height differential Click Here
brother_h said on 5/Feb/08
i think he is taller than 6'7 too. look at that pic of that guy with the glasses and he is 6'6. and compare his pic with Mamuns next to kane.
Kane has a collor bone over Mamun but the other guy is a chin i think. or above the chin.
ehh ill get back to this >.<
jun said on 5/Feb/08
Ithink he is 6'9 .Look at mamun pic, in that pic i don't think K stand straight.K
head is 1 feet length + 1 or 2 inches + 5'8 >= 6'9 right?
Tom said on 4/Feb/08
Ever noticed these days his knees are consistently bent when standing upright.
Alex2 said on 2/Feb/08
I really cant see Kane anything under 6'8" today, hes a mountain of a man
Alex said on 2/Feb/08
For years back then I thought Kane was a legit 6'11. It wasn't only up until a few years ago where I figured he was under 6'10. He fooled a lot of people.
Mark said on 1/Feb/08
Kane is a massive man no doubt about it. regardless how tall he is he is a awesome wreslter and if i had to put my 2 cents in i'd say hes 6.8 it sounds resonable and with lift he hast to be 6.10 i mean exaggerating a man for 6.8 with lifts to 7ft seems outrageous Kane = ligit 6.8 peace Kaneanights :D
Alex2 said on 1/Feb/08
yea an imposter it is lol.
KingNick said on 31/Jan/08
People use to say the same thing about Undertaker. Their look just changes. They lose weight, gain weight, grow their hang long, shave their head, get more tattoos, etc.

no possiblility champ. its always been glen jacobs. one and only
Alex2 said on 30/Jan/08
I know it may be true, but their is loads of rumors on some wrestliong forums i use that Glenn Jacobs had not always played Kane, and he may have been a different person when masked, but its only a possibility.
Danimal said on 27/Jan/08
That pic with Undertaker and Big Show is the Undertaker BEFORE height loss. He very well could have been a full 6'8" at that point. It was clear in later years, that he couldn't match up to Big Show the way he did in 99-00.
Frank said on 27/Jan/08
Show's Boots look like they could have more of a Lift than Takers
KingNick said on 26/Jan/08
I can see JT's point, it does look like there's something in UT's shoe. That's what I'm talking about with lifts if you look hard enough you can see something. I don't think UT wore lifts for the majority of his career though, just more so during the ministry of darkness era. But those are great pics, Shock. If UT is a legit 6'8", he's probably at least 6'9" in the Big Show photo and Show is wearing near flat boots, accounting for probably a 3" difference.
JT said on 26/Jan/08
Nice pics there Shock. Taker
Red said on 26/Jan/08
Shock of Electric, good points.
I think Kane was a legit 6
Alex2 said on 26/Jan/08
Wow! That photo with UT and Big Show clearly shows Taker 6'8"+
Shock of Electric
said on 26/Jan/08
The only way Kane is 6'7.5" based on the pic with Mamun, is if Kane only has a 10.5" tall head. Mamun is apparently 5'8.125". That means his head is between 9" and 9.5" tall, since he looks to be smaller stature, we'll go with 9" just for the sake of argument. His head is 49 pixels tall, making a 9" tall head 5.4 pixels to the inch. This makes Kane's head 11.3" tall, for someone over 6'6", this is easily possible, in fact it's just all the more reasonable. Kane is an entire head taller + 1" more in this picture, , but to apply the math, he is 66 pixels taller than him, which translates to 12.3" taller than Mamun, thus Kane is at least 6'8.425" If you want to break it down further, Mamun is reaching for the stars here, I give Kane a very possible 6'8.5" or slightly more. Based on comparisons with many workers I've met, and compensating for when Kane wears lifts, he is clearly over 6'8". Now if someone says Mamun's head is only 8" tall, I know there's a conspiracy against tall celebs. Let me also state, that Kane and Taker are the exact same height, so apply this to him as well. I see so many people here consistently put him at 1" shorter than Kane, but as of the very last time they were together as a team, Kane was not wearing lifts and they were the exact same height. I think some of you aren't taking lifts into consideration for that.
Here are a couple comparison pics of Kane and Taker, one with Kane in lifts, the other not in lifts. Remember, don't look at their eyes, look at the tops of their heads, Taker's forehead is massive and helps him out in several situations where he'd otherwise be shorter. The older pic is Kane in lifts, obviously only 1" taller in 1" lifts.Click Here

hannah said on 23/Jan/08
There's no need to be rude about it! It's obvious you have it in your mind that he wears lifts and no amount of evidence to the contrary is going to change your mind. If anyone is nuts it's you, Edge clearly wears sneakers and kickpads which have the illusion of appearing like thick boots but they are not!
brother_h said on 23/Jan/08
i feel sorry for kane = but looking at him in person he looks different than he does in the 90's, he is bigger uptop and his legs dont look broken. well still alil broken.
those are edges big boots u nuts, they go upto his knee and the sole is thick as ur skulls.
he always has worn boots or elevated shoes to appear taller on screen with the other wrestlers.
and john cenas face is messed up haha.
so anyway. edge wears lifts u nuts.
Chris said on 22/Jan/08
Even if edge was wearing lifts which he really isnt, it wouldnt give away much height because he is naturally atleast 6'4 brother_h you crack case

Here's a pic of the shinguard strap underneath Edge's trainers. Click Here
He doesn't wear boots anymore!
hannah said on 22/Jan/08
Edge does not wear lifts! He wears trainers/sneakers covered by shinguards not normal wrestling boots.

Kane's knees do seem permenantly bent now.
brother_h said on 22/Jan/08
isnt jake the snake 6'1?
and look back at the WM21 contract signing of taker and randy. taker has 4-5 inches over orton and their both wearing dress hoes...well UT has his normal wrestling shoes on.
and edge appears as tall as randy becoz he's wearing LIFTS u nutter. look at them staring face to face. at times edge looks taller and looks shorter. look at his boots, their massive. and he has only 1 inch over HHH and HHH is 6'2. batista wears dress shoes when hes not in wrestling gear. edge always wears boots when on tv.
for kane, look at the inferno match against undertaker. look at kanes knees their horrible. bent out of shape to the shins.
D-lurker said on 22/Jan/08

I also don't know if Kane with half mask changed his boots to larger sole ones he wears now but my comment below is refering to wwe Insurrextion 2003 i think.

brother_h nice estimations
but rethink Ortons height, he was about 1" shorter than a old Jake Roberts in tennis shoes and never looked really much taller than Edge.
I give him 6

u really think edge is 6'5?!
edge is 6'3 dude
randy orton 6'5
batista 6'3, 6'4 peak maybe
HHH 6'2,6'3 peak maybe becoz of injury
cody rhodes 5'10
goldust 6'5 (wasnt he a cruiser weight??)
mick foley definate 6'2, hunch may have taken him away from 6'4, he does have a tall build.

Look at Kane when he came back after injury 2002 when he had new attire and music. If you look at his boots they're flat pretty much. They're not the larger ones they are now.
Alex2 said on 20/Jan/08
Jiga they are very good estimates, here are a few of mine :)
Undertaker 6'7.75" (today)
Andre the giant 6'11.5 (peak)
Kevin nash 6'10.25"
Uncle Elmer 6'10.75"
Ron Reis 7'2"
Big Show 7'0.25"
Lance Cade 6'5"
Mick Foley 6'3"
Samoa Joe 6'1"
Hillbilly jim 6'6"
Giant Gonzales 7'6.75"
Hogan 6'6.5" (Peak)
Thats all i can think of for now
Jiga said on 20/Jan/08
Kane - 6'8.5 maybe 6'9 peak
Undertaker - 6'7.5 maybe 6'8/6'8.5 peak
Big Show - 7'0.5 peak
Dalip Singh - 7'1/7'2
Andre The Giant - 7'1 peak
Mick Foley 6'2+ (He seems to look suprisingly taller against a lot of wrestlers billed taller the hunch wouldn't help at all, he states in Have A Nice Day 6'4 and Mick does not seem like the lying about height type. It's weird how he said 6'4 and he was billed 6'2 maybe the hunch makes him 6'2 when he's taller...?)

The tallest I seen Kane was at King of the ring 2000. He stood nose to nose against the big show and the difference was like only 1-1.5 inches. No one except Khali stood up to big show like that, not even Kevin Nash who at best was 2.5 inches shorter than Show.
Must be some mega lifts Kane had then! :)

tuga provided this link on the 14/Jan. As he says below did Percy Pringle/Paul Bearer really say it? It's an Undertaker fan site so they could of just said that. I tried asking Percy a while back, on his website PercyPringle.com or something like that, and didn't get a reply. I suggest we all go to JR's website(Click Here
) - go onto blog and reply asking who's taller out of Glen Jacobs and Mark Calaway. Also you could try asking Bearer on Click Here

So who believes the statement on that PhenomForever.com about Percy Pringle saying Kane is 1.5" shorter than Taker?
Frank said on 16/Jan/08
Hi kevin sounds good buddy...Kevin i believe alot of these guys wear lifts in there wrestling boots and appear taller in ring gear than they do in street clothes..and at events they also wear cowboy boots with lifts in them too because i met Randy Savage , Bret Hart and Tatanka and they all looked taller than me and i seen Tatanka in sneakers and i was almost 3 inches taller than him and i am 5ft 11 1/2 and back in 93 Todd Pettengil use to announce for the WWF he wore cowboy boots to make him appear about 5ft 11 and when i met him he was in dress shoes and he looked 5ft 7 to 5ft 8 i have cowboy boots that dont make me alot taller :o)
Mr, 6'5'' said on 16/Jan/08
hey glenn you are the man bro, thanks for all the awesome pictures. personally how tall do you think kane is, i think he's 6'8 in this picture with Mamun, what do ya think. and have you ever met him. also, I was wondering if you could give me some percentages of heights like how many are above 6 foot and above 6 foot 6 and so on, cuz Im 6'5'' and 6'6'' with shoes on, and i am noticing a lot more dudes my height or slightly shorter then myself, thanks for your time man peace
Kevin said on 15/Jan/08
I meant to say Kanes height raised, in case any of you dont know his name which Im sure you do
Kevin said on 15/Jan/08
alright Frank, my bad, sometimes I get very heated when it comes to wrestling as I love the business very much and love to perform also, so heres what I can do, next time I get the call to come to a show Ill try to get proof to put this matter to rest once and for all and get Glen's height raised... how does that sound?
and once again Im sorry
glenn said on 15/Jan/08
exactly lmeister.hell,maybe 240 many times once.or a few reps.300 mustve been my imagination.180-200 was my regular.i think.maybe 150 was the 10 reps.
Ray said on 15/Jan/08
Danimal: How can the Undertaker have lost 2" in height?!? I don't see it. I know it's just speculation but come on, where's the evidence? I might be able to buy 1" at MOST but really that may be stretching it also. When he stands straight he still looks like the tall man he always was and still is. I'll agree with Frank that Sid probably had some help in his boots. I also think Kane surely does too - always did. Big Daddy V has help in boots also.
Alex2 said on 15/Jan/08
Danimal thats kinda dumb as if you look at his Staredown with Khali hes DOES look 6'8 easily and im sure everyone would agree with that.
nick said on 15/Jan/08
Danimal everyone is different, some people loose up to 2 inches some only loose a half inch and some people dont even loose height until their 50's.
The undertaker is very tricky when it comes to altercations with wrestlers. With a 5'11 shawn michaels he definatly looks 6'7 6'8, but with guys like batista and for some reason triple h he doesnt. Batista is billed at 6'5, he very well can be wearing an inch lift inside of his boots.
The undertaker from his early 20's to early 30's was most likely 6'8'' Now i would say he is 6'7 so the average of The undertaker is 6'7.5. Triple H i know for a fact makes himself to be around 6'4 in ring gear,from late 90's to early 2000's. Now he is more nonshalant about it and thats why he looks shorter.
Frank said on 15/Jan/08
Danimal i know i met him back in 94 and he told me he was 6ft 9 and he did look it im not saying he was but in ring gear we was no shorther than 6ft 8 that i do believe
Frank said on 15/Jan/08
I seen Tatanks in Street clothes and he was shorter than me and i would say 5ft 9 and Brother-h these guys wears lifts in the ring im sure of it
Anonymous said on 15/Jan/08
Frank, I really believe taker used to be around 6'9, looking for example his staredown with Nailz who had more hight on mean gene than peak hogan, its clear taker had quite some hight on him, I posted the vids at taker
Lmeister said on 15/Jan/08
Some ppl are just naturally stronger than others. a friend of mine benched 280lbs without going to gym. He is tall(6ft2.5) and looks kinda skinny, but is strong as hell. I mean he could probably lift at least 350-380 lbs, if he bothered going to gym.
brother_h said on 15/Jan/08
i seen that vid of kane benching 500lbs. i jus dnt know how to put them on this site =[
but that was like 7 years ago.
how can u have tatanka at 5'9? hes taller than 6'0 matt hardy.
as we all keep saying, kane and taker both have to be 6'8-6'9 each.
im pridy sure their the same heights.
marty jenetty at 5'11? really?? but he's 2 inches shorter than shawn miachaels and he's like 5'10-5'11
Frank said on 15/Jan/08
If you look @ Taker & Kane on the video when they went to visit the kids Taker actually looks alittle taller than Kane or atleast the same height both are in street clothes
D-lurker said on 14/Jan/08
"I meant frank sorry D-lurker my bad"
haha no worries, it was an exciting read non the less.....have to admit to never have tried cheezos....or have i?.
never doubted kanes strength..he's done some freakish things over the years 4 sure.
Danimal said on 14/Jan/08
Frank, You met Taker 15+ years ago. He is NOT the same man today. He was never 6'9" and I personally do not believe he was a full 6'8" either. He is shorter today Frank. You have to grasp this concept and try and forget what he was in the early 90's. We are 2008 now and like Hogan and many others Taker has shrunk up to 2" imo. Taker NEVER had 2-3" on Sid. NEVERRRR. At most 1". Sid was 6'7", while Taker could have been 6'8". Taker is 6'6"-6'6.5" today. TODAY Frank.
glenn said on 14/Jan/08
back when i was lifting in the 90s i was 140-160.now im 190.
Electric Shock said on 14/Jan/08
Kane could easily in his prime do 500+ lbs. If you want proof of his strength, there's a video on youtube (I'll find it asap but I'm too lazy right now) where Christian has him in an armbar on the mat, and Kane picks him up, one handed, deadlift, and tosses him. No jump. No help. Christian couldn't help at all in the position. It was dead weight, one arm.
There was also a time where Kane got Big Show (who weighed about 465 at the time) on one shoulder and moved him in position for a tombstone piledriver. That's insanely hard to do considering the weight, and that the only thing holding someone up in tombstone position is your arms and body to body.
As for Kane's height I'm going for 6'8.5" barefoot. He wears lifts, which make him 6'10.5".
Alex2 said on 14/Jan/08
Glenn, how much do you weigh?
Alex2 said on 14/Jan/08
Tatanka 5'8 really? I always thought he was legit 6'0"
