I think we need a little upgrade because Kane looks like a legit 6'8" in street clothes beside the 5'8" Mamun.
Alex said on 4/Oct/07
DaMan, it looks very close in difference between Kane ad Mamun and Mamun and his cousin but the fact Kane has a longer head making Kane a little taller. And if you look very closely you can see Mamun is a bit more under Kane's chin than his cousin's.
Eric said on 4/Oct/07
Guys Im 5ft11 and change barefoot and me and kane in that pic both have on regular dress shoes.
Da Man said on 4/Oct/07
There's gotta be at least 11 inches between Mamun and his cousin. Comparing them in paint Kane is minimum .5" taller regardless.
Alex said on 4/Oct/07
Thats closer to a foot difference between Mamun and his cousin, thats more than just 10 inches.

[Editor Rob: Mamun said he measured him 6ft 6.]

rob is this the same dude standing with 7'8 Alam Channa???

[Editor Rob: yes, I think channa has no shoes on either.]
Danimal said on 3/Oct/07
Damn near 6'8" right there.
hero said on 3/Oct/07
he eff looks 6'8 there he towers mamun by a foot.
Viper said on 3/Oct/07
Kane has some gigantic forearms. Just a huge man all around.

''I've met Kane - He falls in at about 6'6" on a good day. I'm a 6'2" female (yes, that tall and yes, all female). My brother is 6'6" and they're are equal in height.''



I know what you mean. I met him a couple months back & he only looked about that.
mike m said on 3/Oct/07
without a doubt there is at least a foot between mamun and kane,kane imo 6,8".of course we do not see the footwear either.

[Editor Rob: Mamun also has a picture with his cousin, a 6ft 6 guy, I'll see if it's ok to show it.

It would make a good reference to give an idea...]
Dave said on 3/Oct/07
@kellie.... oooookay, so you are trying to say that kane is a weak 6'6 in that pic with 5'8 mamun?! get real..... hes an easy 6'8, and im sorry, but your story about knowing him is not quite cutting it.... i say 6'8 comfortable.
ted said on 3/Oct/07
Rob,I do not understand why you have a ? in the first photo: 5ft 11.25 Eric?
You measured him or you ask him how tall he is?Please explain.

[Editor Rob: I don't know either...why that's there. I presume I wasn't too sure if this was barefoot.]
dave said on 3/Oct/07
I think he needs a half inch upgrade Rob...
Da Man said on 3/Oct/07

Da Man said on 3/Oct/07
6'7.5" at the absolute bare minimum here, 6'8" still seems to be the number IMO. It looks like Mamun's head (minus hair) is almost exactly level with Kane's t-shirt collar, which appears to be about 2" below his chin. Kane has at least a 10" head, bare minimum. 6'8.5" could be argued just as easily as 6'7.5" depending on your view of Kane's head size.

Good pic.
Alex said on 3/Oct/07
Rob, looking at it again I could see 6'8 actually but no more than that. My personal guess is 6'7.5 since thats what he looked with 6'5 Ben. It looks damn near a foot difference above. What do you think he looks with Mamun?

[Editor Rob: not sure on 6ft 8 with Mamun, I still think 6ft 7.5 is a good possibility.]
Alex said on 3/Oct/07
The new picture with 5'8 Mamunm is better than 5'11.5 Eric's since they are equal from the camera.
Lets think, Kane's head has gotta be a good 10-10.5 inches since the average man's head is about 9.5. He's a bit over a head more than this guy. Looks 6'7-6'7.5. Doesn't look 6'8 there.

[Editor Rob: it's a good comparison pic for Kane. Normally you'd have big guy slouching, but here he looks decent posture.]
brother_h said on 3/Oct/07
holy crap thats a big guy. i say hes 6'8 max. maybe abit taller coz looks can be dis....thinging. sorry i cant spell that word lmfao. ppl look at me and say 5'8. im actually 6'1, which is a head over. kane was at the NZ tour last year, and so was i! =D. he hung out at the beach with MVP, matt hardy, cm punk and mr kennedy while in auckland. they're weirdos aswell. kennedy is never out of character, and hes 5'10 too. hes shorter than cm punk. and punk is 6'1 legit. kane was the biggest guy in there with a head over all of them. MVP is muscley, so is matt hardy.
Kellie said on 3/Oct/07
I've met Kane - He falls in at about 6'6" on a good day. I'm a 6'2" female (yes, that tall and yes, all female). My brother is 6'6" and they're are equal in height.
chris said on 3/Oct/07
nah man that looks a solid 6'8.. if not more
Cairo86 said on 3/Oct/07
Beside Mamunm he has one head and one inch more than him. Kane's head is 10-10.25 inches high so 6ft 7-7.5 appears right.
chris said on 3/Oct/07
kane looks a good foot or over with that pic with mamunm
Vegas said on 2/Oct/07
kanes boots in late 1998 Click Here (sorry for the poor quality its a scan from a magazine) the platform looks to be close to be at least 2.5"
Alex said on 1/Oct/07
Da Man, I remember. Kane had that big footwewar up until 2000. In 2002 when he came back from injury he wore normal boots you could easily tell because Big Show was more taller than Kane then he was in 1999-2000.
Da Man said on 1/Oct/07
KingNick, in pic 25 Kane's boots are identical to MVP's. They are pretty standard fare for wrestling boots nowadays, those boots also have less sole than a pair of Doc Martin boots which only give 1.5" over barefoot. He's getting about 1.25" of boost over barefoot with those boots, not 2".

Sometime AFTER his Badd Blood debut in 1997 Kane started wearing some pretty big footwear, at least up until 1999 - 2000. In 1999, Kane was holding his own with the Big Show in mid-ring nose to nose stare downs. I posted a video a few months back showing Kane looking within 1.5" of Big Show nose to nose in the ring, no angle trickery either. During that time, Kane actually looked taller face to face with Big Show than Kevin Nash ever did. I'm pretty sure he had some internal help during that time, today it's pretty obvious he doesn't.
Supermanfan380 said on 30/Sep/07
I see what you mean KingNick, and I figure Kane to about 6'7" range barefoot, and by that I mean could vary by an inch, but I would expect him to look around 6'7" in person, if barefoot or wearing regular footwear.

In the past however his boots had a wedge shape. Back when he first appeared as Kane. Think when he showed up durring UT vs. Shawn Michaels
KingNick said on 29/Sep/07
I don't think Kane ever had a big insole, I don't agree with the whole insole thing. I think you can just tell by the boots themselves. Has anyone seen Kane's boots lately? They may give almost 2 inches just from the outside themselves (see 25 and 26 of 48) Click Here
chris said on 22/Sep/07
alot of ppl think that these wrestlers wear massive lifts to give them that much extra inchs of height.. this is not true... even with kanes pretty large lifts he wears now he still looks 6'8 to 6'8.5 next to others.. so i wouldnt say that lifts give away too much
Jiga said on 22/Sep/07
iNNeViTable i would say that he doesn't wear the insole lift anymore and I still think his barefoot height is 6'8.5 as he has even stated in interviews and apparently to people. So currently i think Kane's height in wrestling gear is about 6'10, maybe a little under/over. Back when he had full face mask I think he had 1.5" sole on boots with 2 - 2.5"+ lifts to achieve a height around 6'10.5 - 6'11.5.
chris said on 22/Sep/07
sorry "iNNeViTable!" kanes height has never reached 7' even with pads.. the most his reached is probly around 6'9 - 6'10 MAX... barefoot 6'8 (+ or - 0.5' to be exact)
iNNeViTable1 said on 21/Sep/07
Glen Jacobs is 6'9". His boots have 1 1/2" of rubber padding, and he wears additional 1 1/2" insole lifts in his boots. To Enable his 7 ft. Character...KANE!
Da Man said on 21/Sep/07
I would say it's bad enough that you can't argue Foley's height within an inch based off of the pic.
Viper said on 20/Sep/07
I wouldnt say his posture is horrible with Rob. Hes not standing perfectly straight but it looks decent.
Da Man said on 20/Sep/07
Vegas, what's in the video? Youtube is blocked at work.
Da Man said on 20/Sep/07
Viper, Mick has absolutely horrible posture next to Rob.

I don't buy the Rock as 1" taller than Foley when Foley stands normally.

Click Here
Jiga said on 20/Sep/07
Look at Foley he looks as tall as Edge. Think back to Mick in his younger days; he would have been taller due to no injuries etc.

BTW he slouches even when standing straight he has hunched back. I'd say 6'2+.
Alex said on 20/Sep/07
Foley looks 6'1 1/2 with Rob I think. Rock is taller than Foley though by around an inch I always thought.
Vegas said on 20/Sep/07
Click Here
Alex said on 19/Sep/07
Foley is no more than 6'2 if that. He was a little shorter than The Rock.
Viper said on 19/Sep/07
A 6-3 Mick then makes the Rock a full 6-3. But Mick sure doesnt look 6-3 next to Rob, and he has pretty good posture there.
Da Man said on 19/Sep/07
I agree Jiga, I think Foley is more 6'3" than 6'2" when he adopts a normal posture. The WWE seems to have no rhyme or reason when it comes to billed heights, some guys are underbilled, some are overbilled and some are right on the money. Foley is one of the guys I honestly believe is underbilled, he is a tall guy.
Jiga said on 19/Sep/07
Great pic DaMan. Mick looks to be over 6'2. I spoke about him on the Foley page when it was first put up. In his book Foley himself says 6'4 and he doesn't seem like the type to care if his height is 6'2 or 6'4. WWE billed him at 6'2. I'm thinking that WWE underbilled Mick Foley to make him seem like less imposing to surprise fans that he could fight/brawl. Also to show his toughness. Maybe. But Foley always did seem taller than 6'2 around fellow wrestlers. It just seems weird why Foley would up his own height??? Kane looks every bit of his 6'8.5.
Anon said on 19/Sep/07
"kinda weird when people say a man 6'7-6'8 280-285lbs is skinny."

Hehe fair enough, i only really meant by Kane's standards, with regard to being skinny. we were six months behind america with coverage on television, this coverage ended in 2001 so haven't seen glens form of 02.

I just remember seeing kane being really trim and slender without his err "beer gut" hahah..during this time he was extremely athletic...again by comparsion to his previous performances.
John R said on 18/Sep/07
harly race is a legit 6'1.. look it up.
Alex said on 18/Sep/07
He was his leanest in 2002 but still was a big man.

DaMan, that picture you linked was from 2002 I think. Look at his mask.
Derek said on 18/Sep/07
KingNick- Harley was billed as 6'1", but I'm pretty sure he was under 6'0". As far as Kane, he was under 300 pounds in 2002 because he came off the roids.
Da Man said on 18/Sep/07
Harley Race is billed at 6'1", he's obviously well under his billed height. I'm thinking between 5'10" and 5'11".
KingNick said on 18/Sep/07
How tall is Harely Race?
Danimal said on 18/Sep/07
Wow Da Man, that was a very cool pic of Kane at his largest (340 pounds
). Sick conditioning for such a huge man).
Da Man said on 18/Sep/07
Edge, Harley Race, Foley, and Kane out of gear: Click Here
Da Man said on 18/Sep/07
In 2002 he was skinny by his previous standards, still a very big/muscular guy though. Jacobs was a beast as New Diesel and the first 3-4 years as Kane. The original Kane costume actually hid a lot of his size.

For an example of just how big he looked in the real world during his prime Click Here
Jason said on 17/Sep/07
He was skinniest in 2002.
Alex said on 17/Sep/07
Kane was big in 1999. He's always been big. He was at his smallest in 2002-2003 and was under 300lbs. 280-285lbs he looked to me and still thats big for a guy 6'7-6'8 especially since he has muscle too.

Kinda weird when people say a man 6'7-6'8 280-285lbs is skinny. But compared to what he was, he was more leaner but still big in general!
KingNick said on 17/Sep/07
Great pics, Da Man, nice!

Goldust & Harley Race - Click Here
Kane & Harley Race - Click Here
If Kane would have stood tall there Harley would have barely reached above his chin.
Jiga said on 17/Sep/07
Maybe KingNick. I always knew there was one Kane but it was confusing cause Kane looked bigger than Goldust in that backstage interview with Goldust, the one we debated about ages ago. In his return one Goldust seemed taller and he was behind him. I still think Glen Jacobs/Kane is 6'8.5 or so but i think Goldust may wear lifts. I do know Goldust is tall though.
chris said on 17/Sep/07
There has only been one kane for a fact that it is Glen Jacobs... No imposters no replacements nothing
Anon said on 17/Sep/07
I can remember Kane being super skiny back in 99..Think back to a match where kane had bigshows throat in a choke..as if to slam him but only strangling him..i think Show passes out..He did appear to be shorter than taker in this era..the only physical feature that i noticed that made me think it was the same actor, GJ, was this rather large Vein under glens left arm (as it was not covered in costume)..This appeared to be the same through out.
KingNick said on 16/Sep/07
Jiga and Danimal, I remember talking about this way way back. I do think its the same Kane. I think that at the time the lifts/big shoes were out b/c he wasn't playing an insanely evil character. Backstage, he always looked shorter than he was in the ring. See this for example Click Here Kane looks 2" taller than test here. Kane also lost a lot of weight at that time and gained it back by the time he lost the mask.

I think they had Goldust look as tall ON PURPOSE b/c it made Kane seem less intimidating.

''Jason, maybe but 6'0 or 6'1 she was still a BIG woman and easily over 200lbs.
Too bad we never got to see her and Chyna in a wrestling match.''

That's if she *was* a woman... lol
Jiga said on 15/Sep/07
Danimal the thing with that is Kane has the same voice... It's annoying trying to figure out heights. Yeah i still think Kane/Glen Jacobs is between 6'8 - 6'9.
Alex said on 15/Sep/07

Alex said on 15/Sep/07
Vegas, Orton actually looks a bit taller than Batista than Noel did. Weird because Orton would be like 6'5 going by that but I think he's 6'4.
Jason said on 15/Sep/07
Alex says on 15/Sep/07
''I could give her 6'1. She def looked over 6'0 to me. She weighed 220lbs or something I believe.''

Yeah, but women look slightly taller than they are, because of their proportions. Especially tall women ... so it makes sense.
Danimal said on 15/Sep/07
Jiga, I am 100% sure that they were using someone else other than the real Glenn Jacobs at that time. I think Glenn was away having surgery on his torn bicep and they found a replacement, because at that time, not only was 6'3"-6'4" Goldust taller than him, so was Taker by at least 2" in the ring I remember distinctly. Hey, I think it was the same guy they used as the FAKE Taker from the mid 90's. The one who fought Taker (himself).
Vegas said on 15/Sep/07
Viper says on 14/Sep/07
I beleive Orton is 6-3-6-3 1/2 in his barefeet and maybe looking 6-5ish in ring gear.

Orton sure doesn't look 1.5" shorter than David Noel did next to Batista in street clothes, orton is further from the camera in both shots too Click Here and Click Here
Alex said on 15/Sep/07
I don't think Orton wears lifts. Looks like normal size wrestling boots to me. So him at 6'4 barefoot making him a bit over 6'5 in boots.
Alex said on 15/Sep/07
I could give her 6'1. She def looked over 6'0 to me. She weighed 220lbs or something I believe.
Jiga said on 15/Sep/07
who's taller out of goldust and kane Click Here Go to 3:27 and 3:35.

I remember a video of an backstage skit with kane and goldust that we discussed on here a while back where we debated their heights. I think we decided that Kane was taller. In this though Kane is closer to camera but goldust looks taller...
Da Man said on 14/Sep/07
I posted the except where Lance Storm claims to be 5'11.75" and Christian a legit 6'2", which I don't personally buy. That's probably what Storm believed though, or close enough to it.
KingNick said on 14/Sep/07
With Chritian and Spike,

I read that they were downplayed on size for several reasons. Spike b/c they wanted to bill him as "One Tough Little ****", kind of the smallest guy with a big heart.

Christian I read was undersized b/c he was the next lightheavyweight champion after Taka Michonoku. Someone posted an excerpt from Lance Storm's site were he shoots on wrestler's heights and he claimed Christian was acutally close to 6'2".
Jason said on 14/Sep/07
She was billed as 6'2''. I thought she seemed close to that, too, but someone here a while back - forget who - posted a bodybuilding bio on her where she was listed as 6'0''. So, I'd say the most she could be would be 6'0 1/2''.
Alex said on 14/Sep/07
Wasn't Bass 6'2? I thought she looked it or close to it. 6'1 1/2 at least.
Val was around the same height. 6'1-6'1 1/2.

This site I found years ago and has a section telling you lots of wrestlers legit heights and some seem right while others were off. When I first found it 6 years ago I actually thought it was legit.

Jason said on 14/Sep/07
It was an insulting observation. There's much better ways of stating what you think when you strongly disagree with someone ... such as the rest of your post.

I beleive Orton is 6-3-6-3 1/2 in his barefeet and maybe looking 6-5ish in ring gear.
Da Man said on 14/Sep/07
Jason, that is an observation not an insult. When you meet and estimate Stevie Richards at 6'1.5", Kane at 6'5", Big Show at 6'7" - 6'8", "one of your friends" estimates Khali at 6'9" something is off.
Jason said on 14/Sep/07
Yeah, I think Val Venis is 6'1'' or 6'0 1/2''. I remember he seemed right about the same height as Nicole Bass - maybe half an inch taller.
Alex said on 13/Sep/07
Thats very true. They did downplay Spike to 5'5 while he was really 5'8. Same with Christian. He was more 5'11-6'0 than 5'10. Regal looked 6'2 to me.

What do you guys think about Val Venis. I remember them saying he was 6'4 on TV when he first came then was listed at 6'2 which was more reasonable but I heard he was a legit 6'1 though. Looking at him today he looks like a legit 6'1 at least.
Jason said on 13/Sep/07
Da Man says on 13/Sep/07

Quite true. But admitedly, that is quite the exception. Can't see why they'd do it with Reagal? Especially with his tough guy persona.

That was another Alex who said Orton is 6'4.5-6'5. He has to change his ID. I been here years longer than him. I think Orton is 6'4, not 6'5.
Joe said on 12/Sep/07
Kane's real height is 6'9". I remember back when WWF Warzone came out for Playstation and I was checking out all of their bios, Kane's height was only 6'9". I thought that was odd at the time since they were hyping him up as a 7 footer, but I think the folks who made the game accidentally put his real height in. I hear that the Undertaker is 6'8", and Big Show once stated in an article I read that he was over 6'11" before he got into wrestling. Besides, they can all wear those 2 - 3" heels in their boots, so it's hard to say for sure...
Mr. E said on 12/Sep/07
Da Man, looking at the footage Vegas gave us, Kane has Orton on his left and JBL on his right. I didn't see a timer on the video, but you can see them right after Tiple H waks by and before Vince starts talking. Kane is closer to the camera. I think you guys may be right on Orton being close to 6'5" and JBL is arguably 6'5" (he claimed 6'61/4" on Raw with Austin) Kane looks taller than JBL, but Prton looked taller than JBL. The angle does suck however...

Cool Alex, finally I agree 100% with what u said lol, trust me when i met Orton back in 2004 he was taller than some of the doors! i directly thought he was 6'5'', i was 5'10'' and he just made me look like a kid
KingNick said on 11/Sep/07
Alex, agreed. I saw him from a distance after Summerslam, he towered over everyone.
Vegas said on 11/Sep/07
Orton can look 6'5 from time to time but he isn't taller than 6'4 for sure; for example he looked slightly taller next to batista than [6'4.5 barefoot/6'6 in shoes] David Noel does in photos sans ring gear.

Orton was approx 6'5 in shoes when i met him in 2004.

i didn't see Orton and Kane next to each other last night Click Here on a side-note, Stevie Richards and Kane are next to each other, check out 2min 2seconds into the video. Jason said Richards looked 6'1.5" to him and Kane looked 6'5. Looks 8" easy between them on that video.
Alex said on 11/Sep/07
To be honest i really think Orton is 6'4''1/2 - 6'5'' he is a big guy!
Da Man said on 11/Sep/07
Considering how Kane towered Edge on The Cutting Edge, I find it hard to believe Kane looked less than 2" taller than Orton unless there was something else going on, like ground level or camera angle. Any pics, Mr. E?
ted said on 11/Sep/07
In their picks Undertaker and Kane were exactly the same but now Kane is maybe a little taller.
john said on 11/Sep/07
rey mysterio is 5'10, britney spears is 6'2, undertaker is 7'1.3, airb whos head? be wat? 6'5
Mr. E said on 11/Sep/07
okay john.......did anyone notice at the tail end of raw Kane and Orton standing side by each? It's safe to say that Orton is at least 6'3" and could be 6'4". Kane was no where close to being even 2 inches taller. We couldn't see footwear, but unless Kane dropped to the munster boots before coming down to the ring, he still should have been 3" plus over Orton. It wasn't the greatest angle, but not once did Kane look that much taller. On a side note, the pic Rob has of Kane reminds me of Tony Soprano.

Supermanfan380 said on 9/Sep/07
BigShow has gotten a little shorter ove the years, as Achromegalic giats actually lose a couple inches in the following decade after surgery.

Dalip Sign had is surgery more recently, and is likely the same height that Paul was when he first started.

I am expecting that Kahli will be having trouble with his bodyfat in comming years as well.

Once hGH flow has stopped, due to having the tumor removed, the metabolic slow down is quite fast, and the bones lose a little size too, even though I used to think that was not possible.

Right now I think Kahli has 1-2" on BigShow. That is stil spliting hairs when dealing with guys of this size.

They are BOTH real GIANTS, and always will be. I would still put BS at least 7ft, and kahli at least 7'2", for barefoot.
nova said on 8/Sep/07
Khali has a minimal 1 inch advantage in the video. Vegas , JT love the Big Show and can only see a .5 inch advantage in that video. Well boys you better get some glasses because Khali looks at very least 1 inch taller than Big Show and mabye as much as 1.5 inches at times during the interview. Khali 7'1 Big Show 6'11 because Big Show looks to have the advantage in footware.
KingNick said on 8/Sep/07
Danimal, good point. There was that insane rumor that The Ultimate Warrior died and he was replaced by another one. People use to the think The Renegade from WCW, RIP, was the Warrior.
Danimal said on 7/Sep/07
I meant to type The Ultimate Warrior, not The Undertaker.
Danimal said on 7/Sep/07
They also said that about the Undertaker. Also because he lost a good 30-35 pounds of muscle over the course of his half a dozen comebacks, as well as having cut his hair.
KingNick said on 7/Sep/07
People use to say Undertaker was played by a bunch of different guys too. It's called they lose weight, change their look, cut their hair, etc. I really dont think ANYONE on here can agree with Show being a legit 7'4"
Alex said on 7/Sep/07
Some people say Kane is a different guy but its really the same guy. They think that because he looks shorter now because he doens't wear lifts anymore and he's lost weight.
Chris said on 7/Sep/07
hahah its always been the same KANE.. people change over time
Da Man said on 7/Sep/07
Glen Jacobs has has portrayed Kane ever since his debut at Badd Blood in 1997, check your facts.
skool boi said on 7/Sep/07
i guess yall dont knoe this so ill tell u that there were 2 different pple playing kane n wwf-wwe.wen kane 1st came(1997) and was wearin the full mask that man was 7ft 1in tall then he ended up gettin hurt so wen kane returned around 2002 wearin mask where u could c his mouth and gotee that was glen jaccobs the guy who is playing kane now which is 6'11. ok now bigshow was taller back then wen he was the giant n wcw he was 7'4 bak then but he didnt weigh dat much as he do now and u gotta say age and weight is makin bigger show get shorter so bigshow rite now i would say is only bout an inch shorter den khali but bak n his days n wcw he would b taller than khali so imma say show is bout 7'1,7'2 now.
Alex said on 6/Sep/07
Khali is only an inch taller than Show. It doesn't look anything more than that.
dave said on 6/Sep/07
They're close in height no doubt, but you cant judge height on a photo alone we all know that, not to mention one where they're 10 feet apart. Even so we can see Singh has at least 1 inch on Show.
KingNick said on 5/Sep/07
This is probably the best photo i've seen of Khali and Show Click Here
KingNick said on 5/Sep/07
Hahaha did you hear JBL? "Who's going to pay for all this catering?"

They are very close in height there but I think big show has bigger shoes.
vegas said on 5/Sep/07
yes there were very close dave;
Click Here
Click Here

I have had some of my friends (who have no interest or idea about pro-wrestling) analyse these videos; and they say that show and khali look exactly the same height to them or at most khali is 0.5" taller.
dave said on 4/Sep/07
Disagree we could tell Khali was taller in their staredown and they weren't even that close. Believe me if they stood back to back Singh would have a noticable advantage. He's 1.5 inches taller than Big Show, probably a full 2 inches.
Dave said on 4/Sep/07
agreed... if khali is a full inch taller than big show hes lucky...

I saw them stand side by side on a few occaisions, big show was simply bigger allround.... and looked roughly the same height.... when they squared off it looked like there was NO MORE than an inch in it....

Khali just looks bigger because he has long legs and a much more slender frame, big show is much fatter and looks much stubbier, so it gives the illusion hes much smaller

in reality theres about an inch difference in height
Alex said on 3/Sep/07
Kane's boots back then were def around 2 inches or maybe a bit more, today more around an inch I bet. You can clearly tell the difference. With Vince today he doesn't have no 8 inches on him. More 6 inches or so.

Big Show isn't as tall as Khali but Khali isn't as much taller as Big Show as some think. Khali has Big Show by an inch.
Crissy said on 2/Sep/07
Cobra,
Khali is definantly taller than 7'0 but big show was NEVER taller than 7'0
JT said on 2/Sep/07
Kane looking around 8 inches taller than Vince. Click Here The soles on his shoes look close to 2 inches tall though. Test looks about 6'6" next to 6'2" Shane McMahon.
ted said on 2/Sep/07
Rob,this guy with Kane is 181cm or is just a guess?
chris said on 1/Sep/07
Orton has to be 6'5, he is one lanky tall human.
Batista has to be 6'3 at the most
Kane has to be 6'8.5 at the very most
Undertaker has to be no more than 6'8 at absolute tops
Big show is 7'. (if measured accurately he could be -0.5' or +0.5' difference)
Stone Cold is 6'1
Khali is 7'1 - 7'2
Alex said on 1/Sep/07
Orton is taller than Batista by at least an inch. You can't have them both at the same height. Cena I know was a typo but he's close to 6'1. Stone Cold is no way 6'1.5.
ben said on 1/Sep/07
I beileve it's true :

John Cena - 5 ft 1 in
triple H - 6 ft 2 in
Batista - 6 ft 3
The Undertaker - 6 ft 7
Randy Orton - 6 ft 3
Umaga - 6 ft 1.5
Edge - 6 ft 2.75
Bobby Lashley - 6 ft 2
The great khali - 7 ft 1
Stone Cold - 6 ft 1.5
Cobra said on 31/Aug/07
Crissy, you say Taker (back then) and Big Show are both about 6ft9 to 6ft10, and Khali 7ft1 to 7ft2.
I wonder how you came to the conclusion that Show is 6ft10 max when he is max. an inch shorter than Khali and 3 to 4 inches taller than Taker when they were a Tag Team?
Da Man said on 31/Aug/07
The video was posted a while back. Why do you keep focusing on that 6'10" figure? Looking 4" - 5" taller than ~6'3" Edge doesn't put Kane anywhere near 6'10".
mike m said on 30/Aug/07
the only time kane has ever looked anything close to 6'10" is when he wore the mask and went face to face with big show in the wwf.doesn,t it seem a little ironic now that kane at the time only looked 2 inches shorter than big show and now today he looks 4-5 inches shorter.there ,s the proof he must have wore bigger lifts.
mike m said on 30/Aug/07
do you have that pic daman?
Da Man said on 30/Aug/07
Mike m, Kane had between 4" and 5" on Edge on "The Cutting Edge" face-to-face. It was obvious, you shouldn't need any preconceived guesstimates to see that. All of the useless rationalizations and pointless mentions of Nash and Undertaker will ever change that.

FYI, ~IF~ Edge is a legit 6'4" that would put Kane anywhere from 6'8" to 6'9", ~IF~ Edge is a legit 6'3" that would put Kane anywhere from 6'7" to 6'8". Basic arithmetic is your friend.
mike m said on 30/Aug/07
if edge is a legit 6'4" or even 6'3" there is now way kane had 5 inches on him,kane imo does not look 6'10",kane imo is no more than 6'7" to 6,8".kevin nash is a legit 6'10".he was taller than the undertaker ,and taker and kane are roughly the same height.
Da Man said on 27/Aug/07
Kane was more like 4 - 5 inches taller than Edge on the cutting edge.
Alex said on 27/Aug/07
Stone Cold at 6'3? LOL
Frank said on 27/Aug/07
Crissy Stone Cold is about 6ft to 6ft .5 topps he may wear boots to appear alittle taller...Rey Mysterio is about 5ft 3 to 5ft 4 and Edge cant be 6ft 4 he is Shorter than Hogan who is about 6ft 3 1/2 if that much today
mike m said on 27/Aug/07
kane was 3-4 inches taller than edge on the cutting edge,so if adam copeland is 6'4" then kane is at most 6'8".
Nick said on 27/Aug/07
I get the feeling Rob is ignoring our request for the increase of Kane's height!

[Editor Rob: you never know, he might grow another 1/4 inch by the end of the year.]
Crissy said on 26/Aug/07
if you say the guy next to him is 5'11 then Kane is definantly taller than 6'7.5 i'd give him about 6'10 in this pic

ACTUAL heights- that i'm aware of

Kane- 6'8.5
Undertaker- 6'10 back in the day, probably about 6'8 now
Big Show- Isn't 7 ft, maybe about 6'9-6'10
Khali- The guy is GINORMOUS, when I saw him live he was aBIG guy, i am about 5'7.5 and he TOWERED over me, i give him 7'1-7'2
HHH- 6'2 at most
Batista- 6'2-6'3
Randy Orton- 6'5 *he's really tall, and he's all leg! =P *
Edge- 6'4
Stone Cold- 6'3
The Rock- 6'2-6'3
John Cena- 6'1.5
Rey Mysterio- 5'5-5'6
Umaga- Definantly not 6'4 as WWE lists him, he was barley taller than John Cena, I give him 6'2
Chuck Paulumbo- 6'4- not 6'6 as WWE lists him
Chris Masters- 6'3.5
chris said on 26/Aug/07

Yeah come on Rob, what more will it take, though you sound like someone that still wouldn't believe he was 6'8 even if you measured him at that.
devin said on 24/Aug/07
please tell me why rob you won't change his height to 6'8.25'' we proved all we can i mean look at this photo above he may look 6'7.5'' because he isn't stood straight he would be an extra .75'' taller if stood up properly.
devin said on 24/Aug/07
kingnick weve proved all we can and theres never gonna be a change weve also tried to explain that kane is 6'8.25'' to rob but not getting anywhere he has even said ''I am going to now leave him in the 6ft 7 range'' i give up.
KingNick said on 23/Aug/07
Guys, I want Kane upgraded too, but Rob won't do anything until someone gets a photo proving it. We need something where we can see his shoes (or can tell he's in streetclothes) against a guy who's almost 6'8" himself. I think the 6'4" photo with JT's friend should have done it, but like I said, we need a guy closer to 6'8"
noodle said on 23/Aug/07
rob why won't you upgrade kane a bit? he has actually said he's 6'10'' in shoes and 6'8.25'' barefeet 6'8 at the smallest i think you should upgrade him a little bit
Ralph said on 22/Aug/07
I miss Glenn when he was masked Kane he was a true Monster esp. around his debut period,at one point people his loss of muscle mass. In 03' Kane became a monster again but had less power and velocity,loss of muscle mass can reduce confidence when being a heel,do you notice he can't chokeslam two guys anymore,he can barely body press a cruiserweight.
Ralph said on 22/Aug/07
Meeting Kane in person is a little different,he seems taller and less massive than he appears on T.V,from a stand point he's I estimated an approximate 6'8" 300+lbs.
Da Man said on 21/Aug/07
Probably 6'5" in mega lifts with big hair to boost him up, he still came across as about an inch shorter than Kane though. The lifts seemed big enough that he looked awkward just walking to the ring.
KingNick said on 21/Aug/07
Peter, there's been a lot of debate about that. Most sites list him as 6'7". There was one page that Jason found where he was listed as 6'3", but then the site disappeared. I don't think 6'3". I think like you, 6'5" - 6'6" and maybe 6'7" or higher in his "Kane" gear.
peter said on 21/Aug/07
how tall is drew hankinson aka the impostor kane? i think he is 6'5'' - 6'6''
rodney said on 20/Aug/07
Click Here this guy next to kane is 6'2'' kane looks 7 - 8'' taller here kane is 6'9 1/2'' in boots and 6'8 1/4'' barefoot
Da Man said on 20/Aug/07
I would say Kane gets more along the lines of 1.5" from his current footwear. That is pretty typical for alot of current wrestlers including Batista, Orton, etc...
Spike said on 19/Aug/07
king nick, those boots are the same size theve been for like 2 years, get some glasses man, and yes there is about 2 inches on that boot of kane's
Ray said on 19/Aug/07
KingNick: Kane does wear big boots. He's roughly 6'8" barefoot and about 6'10" in boots so I'd say his boots give him 2". Some may argue this but it seems pretty reasonable to me. Aside from his HUGE heel/boot bottom, I also question whether he has inside support as well.
KingNick said on 19/Aug/07
I take that back check out picture 13 of 36 in that link. They looked even bigger when I watched it maybe it was just me
KingNick said on 19/Aug/07
Did anyone happen to catch Smackdown this week? Kane fought Great Khali. Kane was wearing the biggest lifts I've ever seen in my life! In the staredwon Khali only had 2 or three inches on him! I couldn't see Kane's shoes in the photos but thye were crazy Click Here
Spike said on 19/Aug/07
kanes is no with out a doubt 6'8, and i bealiev hes a little more than that, more 6'8 1/2 more to 6'9, just look at it at wrestlemania when kane went against khali, there only looked to be 3 1/2 inch diff. in height, and same with taker, when they went at it at judgement day, kahli only had about 4 inches on taker, so i think UT and KN are more up in the 6'8 area
Nick said on 18/Aug/07
Just watched the Kane and Batista vs Khali and Finlay, Jim Ross just said "Don't forget, Kane is 6 foot 10" so much for the 7 foot all the time!!!
Ralph said on 17/Aug/07
I'm a huge Kaneite,he's without a doubt 6'8" with a massive frame like 320lbs.,over the years Kane's weight has flexed but he's naturally large framed/endomorph.When I first saw him at IYH Unforgiven I was overwhelmed at the fact that he was an Mirror image of the Undertaker but bigger like the size Undertaker was when he debut.

Air Attacker said on 16/Aug/07
I believe Diamond Dallas Page is a solid 6'4, the WWE Billed him at 6'5 which is probably 1 inch shorter of his current height. By the way the Lack Bam Bam Bigelow is 6'2 and DDP is approximately 2 inches taller than him.
tony said on 16/Aug/07
what does that mean when they say a shade under cause jr says that with kane he says he a shade under 7ft tall
Da Man said on 16/Aug/07
IMO, WWE should have billed Kane at 6'11" and Show at 7'2" if they wanted to keep people half-way buying into their billed heights.

Just like with the billing of Show at 7'0" and Khali and 7'3", there isn't 3" between them.
Alex said on 16/Aug/07
Tony, thats what I found stupid. They have a match between the 2 and show the tale of the tape and both are at 7'0 while they get in the ring and Show is at least 4 inches taller.
tony said on 16/Aug/07
why do they list kane and big show 7 foot when show is 3'' - 3.5'' taller than kane 4'' at the most kane is easily 6'8'' - 6'9''
Dave said on 16/Aug/07
DDP IS over 6'3... maybe not quite 6'4 (although in my opinion hes a solid 6'4)... but hes NO way under 6'3, thats out of the question.
Dave said on 16/Aug/07
DDP IS over 6'3... maybe not quite 6'4... but hes NO way under 6'3, hes a pretty tall guy.
Jason said on 15/Aug/07
DDP was at most, an inch, taller than Goldberg when they went nose to nose.
Da Man said on 15/Aug/07
Yea, DDP looks well over 6'2.5" with Malone.
Vegas said on 15/Aug/07
Viper; DDP is not 6 inches or thereabouts shorter than Karl Malone here Click Here or here Click Here

DDP is also as tall as 6'3.75" Snoop Click Here
Four inches easy on 6'1 listed martial artist Bas Rutten Click Here
Page also has 6" on Jay Leno Click Here
Viper said on 15/Aug/07
DDP looks 6-2 1/2 with Karl Malone.
Dave said on 15/Aug/07
@ JT, i agree.... DDP is a legit and solid 6'4.... one of the ONLY wrestlers whos billed heights are totally correct. When he was a club owner he was always renound for his height and large build, a rival club owner once described him as "a solid 6'5. big man with tattoos... the kinda guy you dont wanna cross, ya know what i mean?"..... this shows he must have been pretty tall, and if this guy whos most likely wrong says 6'5, then i think 6'4 is very fair.

I dont think 6'8 flat is out of the question for kane, its allll about posture. Kane has bad posture, everyone here knows this.... if he stood really straight with ddp there, we would see an EASY 4 inch diff.

I estimate kane between 6'7.5 and 6'8.... i dont think we can say hes much under that, it would be unfair to him.
tony said on 15/Aug/07
Click Here look kane and the imposter kane here
the imposter looks a tad short of kane the guy was listed 6'7'' but on some sites asy his real height was 6'3''
Sid said on 15/Aug/07
Air Attacker kane is 6'8 to 6'8'5 barefeet, in gear tops 6'9. to 6'9'5 in gears. probably the same as sneaks
JT said on 15/Aug/07
Click Here DDP is around 6'4". There would probably be close to a 4 inch difference if Kane raised his head.
Sid said on 15/Aug/07
Alex.. kane looked like has 3'5 over ben, maybe i had bad eyes. guys i'm back !!!!
Da Man said on 14/Aug/07
Actually James, Kane looks to be .25" taller than Taker here as you can see at the 1:02 mark. What's odd is that in the subsequent appearances Kane consistently looked 1.5" or so taller than Taker during this time. Either Kane wasn't wearing his mega lifts at his debut or Taker was in larger than normal footwear for that period, which was large anyway.
KingNick said on 14/Aug/07
I think Kane's 6'8" - 6'8.5" so I can agree with the 6'8.25" measurement, but you guys gotta undertstand, that's hearsay. I can go onto youtube myself under a different name and post the same thing.
Air Attacker said on 14/Aug/07
I definitely think that Kane is a legit 6'8 1/2 base on the measurement of the guy in youtube.com. Remember human beings tend to shrink at night that gave him the illusion of a 6'7 1/2.

Kane is 6'8 1/4 barefeet and 6'10 in LIFTS
Frank said on 14/Aug/07
Jacobs, Kane wears lifts and when i seen Taker and Kane in street clothes they look about the same height
jacobs said on 14/Aug/07
Click Here kane and taker again
jacobs said on 14/Aug/07
Click Here kane does appear 0.5'' - 1'' taller in this pic. rob you should change kanes height t 6'8.25'' the proof was in that video it a load of 6'4'' men next to kane and he look considerably taller like 4'' - 5''
Spike said on 14/Aug/07
i agree all evidense posts kane being 6'8 1.5, and UT 6'8
KingNick said on 13/Aug/07
Jacobs, thad be real cool if we could see that man.
jacobs said on 13/Aug/07
Click Here is the site

[Editor Rob: that comment has been mentioned before, probably by same guy...but I looked at Fonzie and saw him 'singing' tears on my pillow.

tell you what, I've got tears on my cheeks at the notion of this guy being able to measure a 1 meter stick let alone Kane.]
jacobs said on 13/Aug/07
rob you should change kanes barefoot height to 6 ft 8.25 in (204cm) a guy from youtube measured kane

[Editor Rob: post a link to the mention of this.]
jacobs said on 13/Aug/07
on youtube a guy said he measured kane barefoot and he was 6'8.25'' according to him kane wanted him to measure kane barefoot and 6'8.25'' was the result and 6'9.5'' in shoes
jacobs said on 12/Aug/07
2.75'' difference
Alex said on 12/Aug/07
I sure don't see Kane having 3.5 inches on 6'5 Ben Roethlisberger. Thats the best picture we can really go by right now unless we get a full length shot of someone and Kane both barefoot and the person's height we know for sure.
jacobs said on 12/Aug/07
kane is not 6'7.5'' hes more 6'8.5'' as eric said alex
Alex said on 11/Aug/07
I knew people still thought Kane was 7'0 but now 7'1. Never heard that one before.
Alex said on 11/Aug/07
JT, I still see bang on 2.5 inches between Kane and Ben. I think this 6'7.5 listing for Kane is pretty accurate.
jake said on 10/Aug/07
kane is 7 foot 1, cus i checked on wwe homepage before.
JT said on 9/Aug/07
Click Here This gives you an idea where the top of Roethlisberger's head is, though we still don't know the footwear of either.
Jiga said on 9/Aug/07
Kane has also stated 6'8.5 at other times hasn't he Eric. Eric also met Kane another time with his 6'6 friend with him and Kane was taller. Other people have claimed Kane to be 6'8 to 6'9. You see Glen's billed heights 6'9 as Isaac Yankem. Yankem was taller than taker in that match with staredown, same sized soles on boots, don't know if either had lifts but yankem was a jobber so wwf would be trying to make Taker the bigger, badder, tougher, etc. If either had lifts it would be taker.
KILLA-ABZ-INC said on 9/Aug/07
YO PEOPLE ERIC WAS WITH KANE SO HE ASKED HIM AND ERIC IS RIGHT
Da Man said on 9/Aug/07
6'8.5" barefoot would put a person at 6'9.5" in typical trainers and at roughly 6'10" in an industrial type workboot.

Sid Eudy is not a legit 6'9", he's a minimum of 1.5" shy of that.
jacobs said on 9/Aug/07
so that means kane is 6'10'' - 6'10.5'' in shoes
eric 1 said on 7/Aug/07
He told me he was 6ft8.5 barefoot.
jacobs said on 7/Aug/07
eric 1 did kane really tell you he was 6'8.5'' - 6'9'' because kane looks to be 6'10'' in most areas he was even 1'' taller than the 6'9'' sid vicious
eric 1 said on 7/Aug/07
You guys are all correct. Thats me in the pic with kane . Before we took the pic together he was sitting down i asked him if he can stand up for a pic. He did and before i took the pic with him he was standing straight up and the top of my head only came up to the very bottom of his chin. He slouched into the pic with me to get into the pic or else he would of been half way out of the pic. He had on the same exact type of shoe i had on . Regular dress shoes. I am 5ft11 and change. By the way look at the window behind us its bigger than a door way and you can see kanes head is clears it.
Frank said on 7/Aug/07
Guys Kane is not 6ft 10 !!! Maybe he appears that tall and the Picture with Big Ben who is listed at 6ft 5 Kane looked 2 to 2.5 inches taller than Ben...Glen Jacobs told Eric he was 6ft 8.5
jacobs said on 7/Aug/07
the imposter kane was easily 6'7'' - 3'' shorter compared to the 6'10'' kane
Jun said on 7/Aug/07
I think Jacobs's right.Uf Kane stood up straight he'll be taller than Eric a head,a giant head(11~12inches) so I would give him 6'10"
jacobs said on 7/Aug/07
look at the pic above that guy is 6ft or a little under and if kane stood up straight and tilted his straight he'd have an easy 9'' - 10'' tower so yeah 6'9'' - 6'10'' is kanes height he looks 6'7.5'' becuse of not stood up straight
Alex said on 6/Aug/07
When I was much younger, 13-16 I thought Kane was a legit 6'11 and actually thought that up until a few years ago. Back then I always heard his real height was 6'7 and I'm like no way.
Da Man said on 6/Aug/07
I used to think Kane was a legit 6'10-1/2", since that is what JR constantly referred to him as despite being his being listed as 7'0" by the WWE. In his original footwear, I think he looked every bit of 6'10.5" on TV.
KingNick said on 6/Aug/07
Kane can certainly pass for 6'10" or 7' at times, but I think 6'8.5" is closer.
JK said on 6/Aug/07
I think Kane is 6'8'' same as the Undertaker
jacobs said on 5/Aug/07
even on sites said kane is 6'10'' actual height
Cobra said on 5/Aug/07
Even if he sometimes just look 6ft7 I am still defending the 6ft8,5 barefoot.
In his old wrestling gear I think he was close to 6ft11. Weird, you are over 2,00 m and towering over almost everybody and what have you to do, you have to wear lifts thats really funny.
Alex said on 5/Aug/07
Some people still believe Kane to be 7'0.
Alex said on 5/Aug/07
You still got people thinking Kane is 6'9-6'10 here. lol

Logically the most people should think Kane is would be 6'8.
anderson said on 5/Aug/07

Kane's head is a little too small for him to have any significant acromegaly IMO. Big Show's head is much larger, and Show has acromegaly (had it, rather, coz it was treated). Even Khali's head is considerably bigger. Kane just looks like a naturally tall guy to me.
Alex said on 4/Aug/07
Test at 6'5 and Kane 6'7-6'8 seems most logical to me.
Skipper said on 4/Aug/07
test is easily 6'6'' maybe 6'7'' remember no mercy 2001 kane towered over test by 0.5'' - 1'' taller therefore kane is 6'7.5'' - 6'8''
Alex said on 3/Aug/07
Test is no more than 6'5. Kane I remember was 2-3 inches taller in their fights.
Skipper said on 2/Aug/07
rob kane should be listed 6'8'' (203cm) look at the difference if kane stood up straight he would easily have a 2.5'' difference test is about 6'5.5'' - 6'6'' kane is 6'8.5'' at the tallest
Skipper said on 2/Aug/07
kane looked 2.5'' taller than test and test is 6'5.5'' kane is defo 6'8''
Da Man said on 1/Aug/07
Def taller, but hard to say exactly how much because neither one stands tall and are in constant motion. Kane is obviously taller though, probably 2" taller absolute minimum. I don't think a 1" difference would be enough to definitively notice in that situation.
KingNick said on 1/Aug/07
Here's a video from Kane when he had the half mask, I don't think he wore lifts during this period and he's at his leanest here. He comes in at about the 1 min mark, you can see he's def taller than Test

I gotta agree with Vegas and Ray, UT and Kane are very close in height, I think most .5" difference between the two, in my opinion in Kane's favor.
Vegas said on 29/Jul/07
DaMan; i use Macromedia Fireworks (super program, so much better than that microsoft rubbish)

Thorgrim; kane is very fat now, he has a big belly on him. i'd say he is close to, if not slightly over 300lb as of today. When i met him in 2004 he was no more than 270-280lb.

KingNick seeing as the top of Sids head is missing in that photo its impossible to tell, but up to the eyelevel they look very very close in height (personally i don't see more than half an inch between them). As i mentioned before if you put sid, taker and kane together at their peaks in the ring barefoot, you could barely tell the difference i think.

Ray; from what i saw in person, kane and taker looked very close in height as of April 2006. My brother thought taker looked slightly taller; i thought kane was slightly taller so there you go :D
Ray said on 29/Jul/07
Nice comparison pic Vegas; in my eyes, that even more cements my belief that Kane and Taker are about the same height. Only a very minimal difference between their heights since Taker seemed to have Sid by around an inch as does Kane.

anonymous that guy is 5'11'' if you think kane is 10'' taller that means 6'9'' for kane
KingNick said on 29/Jul/07
Vegas, I don't know what to think of that photo. You think Kane is 6'7" to 6'7.5" right? Wouldn't that make Sid 6'6" to 6'6.5"? I really don't think Sid is that short. I think he's minimum of 6'7", probably more like 6'7.5". Then again, like you were saying, it could be post leg break, I don't know. If Sid ever comes back to WWE maybe they'll wrestle.

Thorgrim, I agree man. I do think he was under 300lbs for a short time when he returned with the half mask, but by the time he lost the mask I think he's been 300 or over.
Da Man said on 29/Jul/07
Vegas, what program do you use to resize and compare photos like that? I would like to play around with those photos to help illustrate what I was talking about on the 28th.
Thorgrim said on 29/Jul/07
if anyone here REALLY thinks that kane was "never" over 300lbs, i feel sorry for you, because you are either blind or jealous of his size.

Kane was an EASY 320 at his peak, its quite obvious.
anonymous said on 29/Jul/07
that guy appears to be 5'9" imo,kane has 10 inches on him at least,so again that puts kane around 6'7".
Vegas said on 29/Jul/07
did a comparison photo Click Here

the top of sids head is missing so we can't do a proper comparison but as you can see up to the eyes both sid and kane look roughly the same height with kane just shading it by about 1/8 of an inch or so.
Ray said on 28/Jul/07
Da Man: if Kane has only about an inch on Sid than Taker and Kane are roughly the same height since Taker always looked to have an inch on Sid also.
Vegas said on 28/Jul/07
thing you need to take into account with eudy though is; was the photo taken pre or post leg break. Eudy must have lost height after that break. I will do a comparison photo of sid/kane to see what we get

"Actually, Kane and Sid compared to the kid looks VERY close. He comes up to the bottom of their chins."

I disagree. In Sid's pic, Sid's head is closer to the camera than the guy's is and he comes within roughly .25" of Sid's bottom lip. In Kane's pic, Kane isn't favored like Sid is and the and the guy still looks to be .75" or so short of Kane's bottom lip. Kane's clearly taller in my view, probably by close to an inch, if not a full inch.

kang you are joking kane is said to be 6'9'' on some sites thats why kane looks that small because he does not wear them big lifts any more he only wears 1.5'' shoes now not 3'' kane is a easy 6ft 7.5 and 6'9'' in shoes and plus peak height means if he shrunk and kane defo hasn't
kang said on 28/Jul/07
i would say 202cm just a peak height for kane..in real might be only 6ft6(198cm).. he looks a barefoot 198~199cm to me..
TNTinCA said on 28/Jul/07
They try to portray his character as somewhat deformed so it probably leads to the illusion that he has acromegaly. But he seems to lack the distorted features. Giant head, exaggerated features. Just strikes me as a really big guy.
KingNick said on 27/Jul/07
I really don't think he has acromegaly. When you're somewhere from 6'7" - 6'9" your head and hands are gonna be bigger than everyone elses :>)
JT said on 26/Jul/07
Hard to say if Kane has acromegaly. The pic with Eric shows a protruding brow, which is characteristic of the disease, though it could just be enhanced by the lighting. He does not look like he has an enlarged jaw or hands though he could have a mild form of the disease. It's always possible that he's been taking human growth hormone and basically has self-inflicted acromegaly.
Alex said on 26/Jul/07
I never thought Kane had acromegaly. I thought he was just a big naturally.
Vegas said on 26/Jul/07
Jason i was reading that list on W I K I about 6 days ago and jacobs wasn't there so some person just put him in the last few days. maybe its true but i doubt it, his head and hands seemed normal size to me when i met him.
Da Man said on 26/Jul/07
Ray, you're right, those pics are indeed better of Kane's boots, especially since you can see his ankle placement in pic# 45 -- which also proves he is no longer using internal lifts. Kane's feet look slanted because the front of his boots are very thin, thinner than most wrestling boots (including Takers) while he appears to have a thickish heel. Who knows the reasoning for his boot design, but I believe a good pair of Docs would give him more actual height boost. As I'm sure you know, a .5" heel advantage does not boost height by .5", especially if the front of the boot is also thinner.

As far as Kane being "cool" or a "shadow" of Taker, what does that have to do with anything? I wasn't aware this was a popularity contest.
Ray said on 26/Jul/07

Ray said on 26/Jul/07
Da Man: pic 45 of 49 on the link you posted gives you a better pic of Kane's boot; Taker started wearing a boot with a slightly larger sole right around when he became champ (still not as big as Kane's). I always thought aside from Kane's heel, the inside of his boots looked a little suspect - could be wrong but he looks like he's on a slant all the time which is why he can't run or maneuever as well in the ring. I still feel Kane gets a bigger boot advantage than Undertaker; maybe not 1.5" but I'd say definitely .5" on the heel and maybe more if he has a lift inside. There's a reason Taker and Kane are both listed the same height of 6'7.5" here - becuase they both are around the same height - around the 6'8" mark. Kane is cool; I like Kane but he is a shadow/clone of the Undertaker and as the saying goes - a clone is never as good as the original which is definitely true here.
Da Man said on 26/Jul/07
I think I recall seeing a few of these pictures before, but it's an interesting site nonetheless. The same guy (who looks to be 5'10") with numerous wrestlers in street clothes including Kane and Sid. Kane in street clothes is clearly taller than Sid. Click Here
KingNick said on 26/Jul/07
But this was listed on W I K E P E D I A and with all due respect to the site they dont have the most credible sources. I've never heard that pointed out until now.
Jason said on 26/Jul/07
He's on the list of famous people with acromegaly. You don't think? I think he easily has the head/facial features, frame size and height. It's generally nowhere near as obvious as an extreme case like Andre the Giant -- Shawn Bradley had acromegaly and you probably wouldn't have known, and he's a giant among giants.

Spike, acromegaly is gigantism. It can be worsened by wrestling promoters, as Rob alluded to...
