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.

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.

George, please show us a picture to prove your claim, thanks.
Eric said on 1/Mar/08
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.
JT said on 28/Feb/08
Click 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.
Vegas 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.
Vegas 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"
Vegas said on 23/Feb/08
easily 5 inches alex2, in fact i see a little more, kane is under khali's eyeline
Click 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.
Mamun 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 that
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 .

Regards

Supermun
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.
Vegas 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
350?
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 .

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
Anonymous said on 12/Feb/08
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.
Vegas 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
tuga 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
Vegas 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(Palms).jpg

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
Shock of Electric 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
Vegas 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.
D-lurker said on 31/Jan/08
alex are you talkin to yourself or is there an imposter alex2
Alex2 said on 31/Jan/08
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.

And for good measure, yeah sorry about that pun lol, Click Here for Taker and Big Show, Taker in flats, Big Show in normal boots.

brother_h has something up his arss
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
hannah said on 22/Jan/08
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.
Da Man said on 22/Jan/08
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
well i saw kane on Raw recently in a match against hornswoggle and well he sure shrunk in his old age...*coff*..o.k so it was a bad joke, i won't ever do it again :(...
Alex2 said on 21/Jan/08
Click Here Kane looking within 2" of Big Show (probabaly wearing big boots)
chris said on 21/Jan/08
how can edge be 6'3 and orton 6'5 when they appear the same height? also edge is taller than batista who is listed at 6'3
Jiga said on 21/Jan/08
oh yeah
Kevin Nash - 6'10

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.
Red said on 21/Jan/08
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
brother_h said on 21/Jan/08
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.
snitsky 6'5
Funaki 5'8
JBL 6'6
greg helms 5'11
matt hardy 6'0
jeff hardy 6'1

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 :)

Kane 6'8.5"-6'8.75"
Undertaker 6'7.75" (today)
Andre the giant 6'11.5 (peak)
Kevin nash 6'10.25"
Uncle Elmer 6'10.75"

Kurrgan 7'0"
Samoa Joe 6'1"
Hillbilly jim 6'6"
Giant Gonzales 7'6.75"
Sid 6'7"
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...?)
MagicTouch said on 20/Jan/08
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"
Da Man said on 14/Jan/08
Then what do you make of the Isaac Yankem photos? No 1.5" soles there.
glenn said on 14/Jan/08
d-ray-i having problems with 100 now.had to start like when i was a kid with 60.well maybe im wrong about 300,but i know i was doing 240 5 reps then at least.and maybe i did do 300 once.
Frank said on 14/Jan/08
Well Taker told me he was 6ft 9 and he looked it but again he was in ring gear
I seen Sid in street clothes and he did not look as tall as i thought he would be to me he looked about 6ft 6 and i know it sounds crazy but he must wear lifts in his boots to look about a half inch shorter than Taker
British Bulldog 5ft 8 to 5ft 9
Jim Neidardt 5ft 9 1/2 to 5ft 10
Lex Luger 6ft 4 (but he was wearing big boots)
Vince 6ft 1 to 6ft 1 1/2
Sid 6ft 6 (in street clothes)
Taker 6ft 8 to 6ft 9 (in ring gear)
Marty Jeanetty 5ft 11
Tatanka 5ft 9
Paul Bearer 5ft 10
Rikishi 6ft .5 to 6ft 1
Kevin Nash 6ft 10 easily
Godfather 6ft 4
Again this is how they appeared to me I could be wrong
tuga said on 14/Jan/08
Yes Frank, Its hard to believe, but the thing is I don
Frank said on 14/Jan/08
Tuga i dont think Percy Pringle would say that but i emailed hin and i asked him what is Marks real height because i know some wrestlers wear lifts in there boots and he say they dont but some wrestlers have thicker soles than others Which is BS
Frank said on 14/Jan/08
Kevin you dont know who you are talking too I have seen alot of these in Person Taker, Kevin Nash, Macho Man, Brett Hart, Tatanka, Mable , Marty Jeanetty, Sid, Vince, Rikishi,Lex Luger, Irs, Yokozuna, British Bulldog, Owen Hart, Jim The ANvil Neidardt so i know what i am talking about...I just meant for Kane to say im between 6ft 8 to 6ft 10 sounds Stupid...Its like me saying im 5ft 11 1/2 to 6ft 1...And i dont eat cheetos im 188 ponds with a 34 in waist and im 45 years old... Go to the Undertaker page thats me and go to the Vince Mcmahon Page thats me and go to Solofu Fatu (Rikishi) thats me also so i met them in person not on a couch :o)
D. Ray Morton said on 14/Jan/08
Glenn - 300 lbs. even once is pretty impressive. Most I ever did back in the day was 315, but that was a one-off. These days, due to health issues, I'd have trouble with 150.
Alex said on 14/Jan/08
I can believe Kane can work out with 405lbs easy and bench over 500lbs for his max.
Tom said on 14/Jan/08
Taker at his heaviest (circa 1999) weighed around 335-340lbs in my opinion.
tuga said on 14/Jan/08
Frank, I agree with you, I happened to watch WWE armageddon last night and kane has huge boots, big daddy V also and even mark hendry, but kane
glenn said on 14/Jan/08
danimal-i used to lift weights but wasnt a pro or 24/7 like some of you are,but i could swear once i did 300.1 rep.if i didnt,which mustve been my imagination, i for sure did 10 reps of 200 with ease and maybe 240 tops.with not as much ease.maybe 3-5 reps for that.so you mean to tell me 300 is tough for most? doesnt make sense to me.you see pics of me now, and then.though you downplayed me with drastic measure once,i was and im still somewhat muscular.even if i have supergut.now 100lbs gave me a problem over the summer.mainly cause of a bad wrist ive had for 10 months now or so.i did light weights and worked out since 10.i was doing 5 pounds then.20 by 14.just curls.benching by 14 too actually.i think 60 start.actual heavy weight lifting by 21 or so.it depends on the individual too.im not claiming to be strong or anything,seriously,but i did outlift my athelete,football playing friends.
Kevin said on 14/Jan/08
look I was at the ****ing show talking to him backstage what is the closest youve ever been D-lurker on the couch at home watchin them on t.v. and eatin cheetos, and the reason he doesnt know is because people ask him so much he sais its just easier to say "I DONT KNOW"... I meant frank sorry D-lurker my bad
Electric Shock said on 14/Jan/08
Kane's bench record is 535. He REPEATS 410.
D-lurker said on 13/Jan/08
regarding Kane's strength..read dave's comment down below from december 8th..

"repped out at 430lbs" ...."and yeah his max bench is well over 500lbs.."
Frank said on 13/Jan/08
How can you not know how tall you are ?? especially being in that buisness
There is no way Kane is a inch and a half taller barefoot !! Kevin Nash was about that much taller than Taker Kane is about .5 taller if he is taller barefoot
Alex2 said on 13/Jan/08
Kevin i agree, Kane has siad himself hes 6'8 1/2 hes no way under 6'8 He needs upgrading
Alex2 said on 13/Jan/08
Danimal, ive read from books,articles, newspapers, so please dont think you know it all as im sure Shaq is extremly strong.
Kevin said on 13/Jan/08
I just did a smackdown event last night in jonesboro, Arkansas... now I was only ring crew/security, but I did manage to get some talk time in with some of the performers there that night kane and undertaker being 2 of them... Now barefoot kane was about 1 1/2'' taller than undertaker from my point of view which was about 5' away... and kane said he was between 6'8'' and 6'10'' but he didnt know exactly and thats coming from his mouth
Jiga said on 13/Jan/08
So Kane isn't that strong compared to others??? Kane is second lightest in that list Alex. Kane is minimum 6'8. I think 6'8 - 6'9.
Winst27 said on 13/Jan/08
The old Kane looked really tall and towered over most people except fot the Big Show but it was quite obvious he was wearing high heels lol.
Danimal said on 12/Jan/08
Shaq benching 455 pounds??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Alex2, have you ever been in a gym? Do you realize how much 455 pounds is. Shaq is a tall and somewhat lanky (not skinny) BASKETBALL player. Do you know what that man would look like if he was able to actually bench close to 300 pounds??? He would be MASSIVE. Kid, learn a thing or two before copying and pasting nonsense from the web.
Mark said on 12/Jan/08
Kane was billed as 6'7 on WWE website at beginning but was soon taken off. Rob's absolutely spot on. Think Kane has between 1/2-1 inch on Taker.
Mr. X said on 12/Jan/08
Kane is actually 6'8 1/2" ( 6'9" peak ) the billing of seven feet is absurd, Andre the Giant was 7'0" legit.
Alex said on 12/Jan/08
Alex 2, I've read about that too but we're unsure if its their max or do they actually work out with it. Big difference. I can max 300-305lbs but I work out with weight much less than that. I've read Lesnar was benching 475lbs for an actually set and Angle's 420lbs I am assuming may be a max, unsure.
Alex said on 11/Jan/08
Standard wrestling boots gotta give minimum 1 inch, if not 1.5 inches. Guys with lifts give 2 inches plus. Kane's case they give 2.5 inches I'd say.
Alex2 said on 11/Jan/08
Alex, i know you've told me your Bench press record before, but i have forgotten, i am 15 and at the time my max is about 135lbs-140lbs but aim to improve, there is a 75 year old down at my gym who can top out at 195lbs! I have been reading up on some athletes bench records and this is what ive found:

Kane: 410lbs (uncertain, possible more)
Brock Lesnar: 475lbs
Lex Luger: 405 (weighs 235 apparently)
Larry Allen (Dallas Cowboys) 600lbs apparently
British Bulldog: 540 lbs!
Jimmy Snuka: 525lbs
Shaq: 455lbs
The Rock: 425lbs
Kurt Angle: 420lbs

and Tiger Woods suposadly benched 190 at one time, thats all i can find for now.
Alex2 said on 11/Jan/08
Maybe that might be why we have low listing for Kane as he has knee problems and has a hunch, i still think hes 6'8 minimum though, Rob needs to upgrade his height compared to the fact he has Tyler Mane at 6'8 who i can bet Kane is bigger than 100% agreed?
Da Man said on 11/Jan/08
Alex, agree 100%.
Alex said on 11/Jan/08
Kanes boots over the last couple years appear to give 1-1.25 inches. Back then I am sure they gave 2-2.5 inches.
D-lurker said on 10/Jan/08
yea i have noticed kane is slouching, i caught one entrance and he looked to be in a bit of discomfort in the knee area..i do remember an interview where he states he has issues with his lower back and knees..could well be catching up on him..
ShawnG said on 10/Jan/08
Kanes boots have 1.5 heel
Alex2 said on 10/Jan/08
There is a very good chance Taker was a legit 6'8 in 1997
Alex2 said on 10/Jan/08
Has anyone noticed how Kane is alwayts bending his knees latler, humm does he have leg or knee problems? I be precise id say there is 1.75" on those boots.
Ghost said on 10/Jan/08
Danimal, are you saying Taker weighed like 350 lbs in 2000?
JT said on 9/Jan/08
Alex2 says on 9/Jan/08
Kane 2 inches in boots lol, id ont think so
brother_h said on 9/Jan/08
yea kane did have 2 inch lifts. or still has them idk i havent been following wwe for awhile.
and for kanes weight i would have to say he looks alot heavier since 2006.
like maybe he is 320 now or more. he does look more solid.
and looking at recent pics and vids of taker i say 270lbs.
he looks abit more bulky than he did last year.
Alex2 said on 9/Jan/08
I think we can though from all our evidence, points say that Kane is nothing under 6'8
nick said on 9/Jan/08
kane is 6'8 max id say. For him to be 6'8 he would be around 6'8.5 out of bed and around 6'7 3/4 at night just like everyone else. I still think if him and taker had a barefoot staredown they would be exactly the same height. That video with show is decieving, kane is always 3 inches shorter with his ring gear on and the camera angles make that video a non indicator.
Alex said on 9/Jan/08
Kane for sometime I think had boots giving him 2 inches to his height.
Danimal said on 9/Jan/08
Taker is MAX 285 pounds and that's pushing it. He looks to have dropped about 65 pounds since 2000.
Alex2 said on 9/Jan/08
Kane 2 inches in boots lol, id ont think so, maybe 1'.5" but 2 or 1 inch it would still put him 6'9-6'10 there
Tom said on 9/Jan/08
Chris, I could be wrong but he looks well under 300lbs. My 280 estimate sounds like a safe bet (he could be even lower). Have a look at Kane who looks like a legit 300 pounder standing next to Taker, the difference in size (bulk) is very clear. I'm a huge Undertaker fan as well, and I'd also like to believe he's also 300lbs.

Not sure why they decided on 299 instead of just 300 - might have to do with the fact that it sounds more accurate and actual and less of a "thumb-sucked figure".
Alex2 said on 9/Jan/08
I really think Kane needs upgrading to at least 6'8 from what everybody has gathered
brother_h said on 8/Jan/08
theres 2 inches not 1.
and kane looked like he was wearing his usual 2 inches.
Alex2 said on 8/Jan/08
Just look how tall Kane looks next to Big Show in this video, like 1" amazing

Click Here
brother_h said on 8/Jan/08
299 is stupid. they should jus say 290 or 300.
taker honestly looks 260lbs in person. its weird.
and vegas, im saying people think their taller when their with tall people. like when people are the same height. one will think he is taller than the other, while the other thinks the same.

i wish taker was 300lbs agen. but not look like how he did in the 90's where he had fat cheeks.
chris said on 7/Jan/08
if taker is around 280 then that is too skinny for a person with that height and physic. come on the guy is tall and has muscle. 300 pounds is normal
Tom said on 7/Jan/08
They can't keep listing him at 305lbs. Seeing as he barely looks 280 these days. Even the 299 is abit of an exaggeration.
chris said on 7/Jan/08
it sounded weird how undertaker is in the 200 pound bracket now as said on smackdown
Alex said on 5/Jan/08
Brother, its not hard to me to estimate a 6'4 guy much. It gets tougher at 6'7 plus.
brother_h said on 5/Jan/08
true alex. when a ur tall like 6'4. and u look at a person who is 6'0. u can easily tell he is 6'0. but when ur the 6'0 guy looking up at the 6'4 guy. u'll think ur 6'2 becoz ur looking at the 6'4 guy wrong.

thats wat alot of guys here do. think their taller becoz they think their nearly as tall as the tall person.
Alex said on 4/Jan/08
when you're a legit 7'6 you can pass for 8'0 to average sized people, even some tall people. Its like not 6'6 getting away with 7'0 which is much harder.
Alex2 said on 4/Jan/08
Here is a non wwf interview i found of Gonzales and Wippleman on Regis and Cathy in 1993, really cool, Gonzales talks in a normal voice and claims hes "almost 8 feet" Click Here

Look how tall undertaker looks next to JBL in this clip.. it looks like his shrunk now recently when JBL and undertaker looked the same height in the ring not long ago
Alex2 said on 3/Jan/08
I think Gonzales was more 7'7" or at least 7'6.5"
Frank said on 3/Jan/08
Listen i seen Gonzalez @ Madison Square Garden and he was hugh when your 7ft 6 to 7ft 7 that looks like 8ft because its hard to judge what 8ft looks like anyway

Still with the Jbl thing, I
brother_h said on 3/Jan/08
didnt it? btw i was anonymous, i was using a diff comp at the time.

and, both my comps suck and wont play vids properly.

umm i was hoping that promo showed taker and orton face to face and the cam was on the side of them showing the 4 inches i saw.
damn, we need more promo's of wrestlemania 21 coz thats where i saw taker didnt look 6'10 like they said and made me come here =p
chris said on 3/Jan/08
that clip didnt show anything "anonymous"
JT said on 2/Jan/08
That looks like at least an inch heel for Taker there, Ray. Those boots are shiny leather too, unlike his boots from a year earlier (Click Here). They

I kinda agree on vegas's second pic. maybe if gonzalez stopped lifting his chin up he taker would be upto his lips.
tuga maybe right with gonzalez wearring the huge boots.

Click Here
check this out. this should have the orton and taker face to face on the side showing 4 inches.
i didnt watch it coz my internet is only going 7kb/s

and that jbl pic, taker is right beside him u nut.
KingNick said on 2/Jan/08
Plus I really don't think Taker had boosts in his shoes 1990-1993. There's no evidence in that pic that he does, half an inch tops.
Ray said on 2/Jan/08
Actually, if someone were to draw a line where Gonzales ankle would be in JT's first pic I would say it would be nowhere near the bottom of his boot; there would be quite a bit of area between where his ankle is and the bottom of his boot.
Ray said on 2/Jan/08
JT: Taker's boots look the same to me as he always wore back then - how are they different? Gonzales boots are huge. I've said before he got some inches of height added due to his boots but a few people dismissed it probably because it would make Taker taller than they suspected. Gonzales was billed at 8'0" so it seems logical they would want to give him as much height as possible. They wanted to make him monstrous.
tuga said on 2/Jan/08
Gonzalez could walk barefeet and dwarf just about everyone, including Taker,the point is he was billed 8
JT said on 2/Jan/08
(Click Here) (Click Here) (Click Here) At least a 10 inch difference considering the size of Gonzalez
Alex2 said on 1/Jan/08
Gonzales did have huge boots on Taker and definatley no more than 9.5 inches on Taker, i really doubth these for today: Undertaker 6'8.25 Kane: 6'8.75
Alex2 said on 1/Jan/08
I still even with Gonzales (actually stretching himself as tall as possible with big boots) dont see any more than a 9-10 inch difference between the two.
Alex2 said on 1/Jan/08
Why is it so hard to accept that Taker is 6'8-6'8 or at least once, look at brother_h pics, he clearly shows us hes 6'8 minimum even today perhaps. As for Kane i found this video with him and 6'6-6'7 Bradshaw and he has 2.5 inch on him Click Here
height estimater said on 1/Jan/08
kane seems to have got shorter over the years.. whether this is because he was wearing lifts.. im not sure.. no way is he 7 foot like he is billed to be... maybe when he first came into the wwe he was 6 ft 9.5.. I dont think he barely makes 6 ft 8 now, id say bout 6 ft 6 to 6 ft 7.
Frank said on 1/Jan/08
Taker has a couple of inches on JBL And people keep posting that picture of JBL probably in Cowboy boots with Lifts looking close to Takers height or the camera angle was off...And the picture below shows Taker in sneakers looking more than an inch on JBL looks like 3 inches and Taker has his head tilted and if Takers head was straight it would look close to 4 inches
Vegas said on 1/Jan/08
what do i say now, i say try much better :P
1.undertaker is about 5 feet closer to the camera than jbl, unless you believe takers head is twice as big as JBLs and taker has about 100lb on an ex nfl offensive tackel. JT posted a photo about a year back of JBL and taker side by side and they were both the same height but jbl was in cowboy boots to takers trainers
2.i see nothing in the orton video, again taker is much much closer to the camera and even then i don't see the 4" you mention
3.a person's height is measured STANDING FULLY TALL (some here including yourself it seems, don't realise that), gonzales has his head bent down there, raising your head is full height, gonzales posture is awful in that video but when he does stand fully tall (3.28, 3.39, 3.54 for example) he was so much bigger than the slouched version, go to tito ortiz's page to see how much height a 6'2 guy loses looking down (i lose more than 2 inches bending my head), now multiple that by 10 with a 7'6 guy, here are the best shots from that match of a fully tall gonzales Click Here and Click Here btw
brother_h said on 1/Jan/08
look at 4:08 on that gonzalez video. yup. not with his head held up high like ur pic there vegass
brother_h said on 1/Jan/08
randy orton slaps undertaker, but its only a second where u see 4 inches. there were better shots on promos for wrestlemania but i cant find them.
Click Here

idk how to make the links clickable but here is taker with 3 inches on JBL.
Click Here

and in that pic, gonzalez has his head raised up.
Click Here
watch that when he doesnt have his head raised, and there are other pics but my photobucket is really not helping -_-

so vegas, what say you now.
KingNick said on 31/Dec/07
Happy New Year!!
Vegas said on 31/Dec/07
brother_h please provide evidence of randy orton looking half a head shorter than undertaker, that is impossible as i met both guys (half a head = 5 inches)

oh yeah provide evidence of JBL looking 3" shorter than undertaker, i don't see 3" here Click Here

btw big show was billed at 7'5 before he joined WCW, thats his highest billing

undertaker didn't come up to gonzales' lip when gonzales "stood up fully straight" Click Here
brother_h said on 30/Dec/07
ok so lets review. even though i dont have pics of wrestlers or a proper photobucket.
hulk hogan, billed 6'8, real 6'6. was towered by 6'9-6'10-6'11 undertaker by 2 to 3 inches. making his real height 6'9.

Sid, billed 6'7, real 6'7.5, was an inch shorter than taker, and at some points, same height. making taker 6'8.5

Viscera, billed at 6'9 and 487lbs(heaviest was 530lbs) real is 6'6.5, usually looks the same height as taker, and at some points an inch shorter, but hard to tell with that mohawk and his giant size. that will make taker 6'7.5

big show, tallest billed was 7'4 wcw, then 7'2 wwf, and 7'0 wwe. real would be 7'1 or 7'0.5, towers every person alive, outsized taker by 4-5 inches, half ahead. that will make taker 6'9-6'8 or 6'8.5-6'7.5

Khali had a good 5 inches on taker, another half head. khali is billed 7'3, real 7'1 or possibly 7'2. if so then taker would be 6'8 or 6'9

RKO is 6'4, and is half a head shorter than the deadman, making him look 6'8.5

JBL a real 6'6, billed at 6'7 before APA and 6'8 during APA. he is dwarfed by taker by 3 inches in every shot their in. other shots have him looking an inch shorter than taker. making undertaker either 6'8 or 6'7.

Giant gonzalez exagerrated at 8feet tall and 450lbs. real was 7'6 and 420lbs.
if taker really was 6'6 then he would have come upto his chest and not his bottem lip. that will make taker 6'9 or close to 6'10. his shoes did look abit higher than usual.
tuga said on 30/Dec/07
Yes Ray, Taker had 3 inches or very little more back in the day, in 2002 had 4 inches, maybe a bit more depending footware and posture.
I
Ray said on 30/Dec/07
Yes, I would agree with ALex that Taker had Hogan by 2-3 inches back in the day/peak and I'd say 4 inches now. Hogan is no less than 6'3" and in fact is probably closer to 6'4" than 6'3" so it's obvious Taker wouldn't be under 6'7" and closer to 6'8" if comparing him to Hogan. Not only Hogan but many others: Orton, JBL, Viscera, Big Show, Khali all show Taker to be in that height range IMO.
tuga said on 30/Dec/07
Sorry, I forgot, the anonymous is me.
Anonymous said on 30/Dec/07
Ok, so at leat 4 inches in 2002, today?? Click Here
Look, I never bought the 6
Alex said on 30/Dec/07
Tuga, UT never had 5 inches on Hogan. Today it would be 3-4 inches and both at their peak heights it would have been just 2-3 inches. In their faceoffs a couple of years ago in 2002 during their feud I saw 3-4 inches as well.
brother_h said on 30/Dec/07
damn taker is still a big dude compared to normal people.
well the tallest i remember taker having over hogan was 3 inches during takers first year and '02 times.
hogans tallest height would have been 6'5 or 6'6, since he was billed 6'8 305lbs and takers billed was 6'9-6'10 and 320lbs, the average weight for a man over 2 meters is 110kg, that is about 240lbs.
so since hogan may have been 6'6 in his prime then that'll make taker 6'9 or 6'8. and now 6'7 or 6'6. but if taker is 6'6 now then we should downgrade randy orton to 6'1 since taker has half a head over him. go back to when orton slaps taker in the face when their signing the contract. randy came upto his nose.
randy is definatly 6'4, maybe abit closer to 6'5 since he is an inch taller than batista and batista's tallest would be 6'4. and the guy off smallville is 6'0, just to clarify.
so taker is 6'7 now, hogan 6'3, orton 6'4, batista 6'3. maybe.
u guys help me out
Jiga said on 29/Dec/07
test is looking taller than taker here at albert/a-train's wedding

Glen Jacobs/Kane - 6'8.5
Peak - 6'9
Minimum - 6'8
Danimal said on 29/Dec/07
Okay Tuga, Taker does not have 5" on Hogan. Never did and still doesn't. Taker has shrunk for crying out loud. Alex, explain this to him please. Thanks.
tuga said on 29/Dec/07
sorry, here goes the link again:

tuga said on 29/Dec/07
Danimal, if you put taker at 6
Alex said on 29/Dec/07
I still stick with my 6'6 1/2 estimate for UT today and I'd go with a full 6'8 for his peak. If you look at him compared to back then its very possible he lost 1.5 inches. That or he use to wear big lifts.
ted T said on 29/Dec/07
I would say 6-7,5 peak and 6-7 now for Undertaker.
Danimal said on 28/Dec/07
Tuga, Taker was only about 6'7.5"-6'8" at his peak and he hasn't been that height for years. He has been south of 6'7" for at least 6 years. 6'6.5" is very accurate for Taker's PRESENT height.
tuga said on 28/Dec/07
I agree with you Frank, taker and kane look the same height, kane was only a little taller than taker when he had lifts.
Alex, taker at 6
Alex said on 28/Dec/07
I've seen Kane look as much as 2 inches on UT in the past when he wore his bigger lifts.
Frank said on 28/Dec/07
Alex, Kane looks about a half inch taller than Taker most of the time and Im sure Jacobs wears Lifts
Alex said on 28/Dec/07
UT looks around 275lbs today honestly. He was 320-330lbs in 98-2001.
brother_h said on 28/Dec/07
i met kane too and he says 6'8.5, and i seen undertaker, not up close but at the airport when they were coming in. taker was just standing there watching everyone being welcomed, and he really is tall, taller than the 2meter doors.
and he is REAAAAAL skinny. he looks muscly on screen but in person he's skinny as hell.
i reckon 6'8.5 260lbs. the height is just a guess from wat i saw.
HellBoundPower said on 27/Dec/07
Big Show looks to have no more than 3 inches on Taker. Kane wears lifts to be as big as Taker. I'd say Taker is 6'8" barefoot (6'9" with his wrestling boots), and Kane is probably 6'6.5"-6'7" barefoot.
Danimal said on 27/Dec/07
Frank, Taker WAS wide when you saw him and got even wider in the late 90's, but he lost 50-65 pounds starting in 2001.
Alex said on 27/Dec/07
I'd say right now UT is 6'6 1/2 and Kane is 6'8.
lsu alum said on 27/Dec/07
i use to buy into the kanes 6'10" but after talking to people i know who have seen him in person 6'7.5" is dead on
Frank said on 27/Dec/07
I met Taker and believe me he a very tall guy and he is very wide TV dont show
that...Ask Eric he can tell you also he met Kane
Danimal said on 27/Dec/07
This was at a time where Page was feuding with Hogan and they both appeared on the show and Hogan was still 6'4.5-6'5" in 1998. He edged out DDP by a bit. His serious height loss came POST 2000.
brother_h said on 26/Dec/07
Taker has 4 inchs on hogan.
dont compare UT with bigshow in those pics compare him with mcmahon. mcmahon comes upto takers chin. thats 6 or so inches. so taker would be 6'8-6'7.
and bigshow had half a head on taker so 4-5 inches over him.

i never knew DDP was a tall dude. i always thought he was 6'0 looks 6'5.
Dave said on 26/Dec/07
ddp is certainly a genuinely tall guy, and ALWAYS looks a full 6'4. sometimes even more! same with scott hall, a genuine and legit 6'5... and always wore very flat boots.
winst27 said on 26/Dec/07
hmm, if Kane was 6'8.5 then Undertaker would be about the same and Nash would would be 6'11 .. Kane looks to be standing fairly straight there with Mamum.
ShawnG said on 26/Dec/07
Alex big show doesnt have 5 inches on ut in those pic mayb 3.5 but not 5
Alex2 said on 26/Dec/07
DDP looks 6'5 easily in those pics and always does
