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 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
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
that pic there kane is 6 ft 9.75 in tall put on microsoft measured him using lines the results show 6 ft 9.5 at least
Arjun said on 4/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

Click Here
KingNick said on 29/Jul/07
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.
13 years and 5ft10 said on 29/Jul/07
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
Da Man said on 28/Jul/07
Ray says on 26/Jul/07
"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.
jason said on 28/Jul/07
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 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
Actually, Kane and Sid compared to the kid looks VERY close. He comes up to the bottom of their chins.
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...
Vegas said on 26/Jul/07
Jason i don't think kane has acromegaly, he doesnt show any of the classic symptoms.

kanesno1fan; glen jacobs didn't play "the black knight" character that was jeff gaylord
Spike said on 26/Jul/07
jason, what is acromegaly?

[Editor Rob: a condition found mainly in wrestlers, whereby mysterious inches appear out of nowhere.]
eric 1 said on 25/Jul/07
ray take a look at the staredown between kane as issaac yankem and undertaker. You can find the video anywhere on the internet. There boots are exactly the same size. Kane has him by an inch. Kanes boots are no longer that big anymore. Look at them .
kanesno1fan said on 25/Jul/07
these are the height he's listed in his gimmicks: isaac yankem 6ft 9,unabomb 6ft 8,doomsday 6ft 10,the black knight 6ft 11,kane 7ft,his smallest billed was 6ft 8 and that means kane is 6ft 8 i've got this film that says when he was unabomb he was billed 6ft 8
Da Man said on 25/Jul/07
Ray, if you honestly think Kane's current gear is giving him a 1.5" height advantage OVER Taker's current gear, you are WAY off. That sounds like a desperate attempt to maintain that Calaway is as tall or taller than Jacobs.
Kane's current boot (picture 9 of 49): Click Here Undertaker's current boot (pictures 7 and 19 of 41): Click Here
Then there's the fact that in 1999 Kane only looked 2" shorter than the Big Show in a direct staredown while today he typically looks 4" shorter and any rational person will begin to realize that nowadays, Kane isn't using much lift.
Ray said on 25/Jul/07
Da Man: please, you're trying to say Kane and Taker's boots are close!?! Kane has a rather big advantage compared to Taker's boot. Kane is the boot king of the WWE - face it.
Da Man said on 25/Jul/07
Ray, you are delusional if you think Kane is getting a 1.5" boost over Taker's footwear.
Arjun said on 25/Jul/07
Vegas, Carlito has some of the biggest hair going around, maybe that throws one's estimations off a bit?
Jason said on 25/Jul/07
W.iki-pedia says Kane has acromegaly. I didn't know that ... though no suprise!
thomas said on 25/Jul/07
i definately agree with you spike. kane is 6ft8.5 at least but remeber kane is wearing shoes so without them he's around the 6ft 7 range 6ft 7.5 at least yeah rob your completly correct on this prediction.
Spike said on 24/Jul/07
Kanes looks 3 and a half inches taller than big ben, just look at the pic! its clear to see that
Ray said on 24/Jul/07
Vegas: you're forgetting Kane has a bigger boot/heel than Taker so IF there is a 1-1.5" difference between Kane vs Taker's height against Batista it is cancelled out by Kane's larger boot. Kane and Taker are roughly the same height. It almost looks like the same difference between Taker and Kane vs Batista's height.
Vegas said on 23/Jul/07
here you go Da Man; the face-off is roughly 6min 10sec in Click Here
Da Man said on 23/Jul/07
Vegas, do you have another link to that video?
anonymous said on 23/Jul/07
kane an taker are the same height,and their both 4-5 inches shorter than the great khali.
Alex said on 22/Jul/07
Vegas, Carlito I saw in person from 15-20 feet away standing at the same place I met Kurt Angle and he looked 5'9, 5'10 at most.
Vegas said on 22/Jul/07
funny thing i saw carlito in a chicago hotel from about 20 feet away and he didn't look short at all. On tv he only looks 5'8-5'9; this is in complete contrast to chris benoit who really looked short to me in New York from about 20 feet away but always looked about 5'10 on tv.
Arjun said on 21/Jul/07
How tall do you guys think Carlito is?? I would say 5'9"ish.

2.5 inches or so between Ben and Kane.
Vegas, it is incredible how large Show's upper torso and head are, compared to Kane's (or basically anyone's). Seriously, his nipples are barely higher than Kane's, but he is several inches taller by the time we get to the tops of their heads. I calculated Show to be 6% taller (about 5 inches) with Kane's head tilted slightly. If he straightens his head, Show will have about 4 - 4.5 inches on him. Puts Kane right around the 6'7" mark.
Red said on 21/Jul/07
for me it looks like 5". I think they have almost the same lifts,
so Dave 6
Vegas said on 21/Jul/07
kane and batista went face-to-face on smackdown this week at roughly the 7 minute mark in this video Click Here looks about 4" maybe 4.5" difference or so to me.

Kane was most def taller next to batista than undertaker was back in feb Click Here (third last pic)

Here is batista and khali from two weeks ago Click Here
mini said on 21/Jul/07
get a tape measure and you'lle see that inches is smaller than you think i done this and realised how small 3 inches is. im not trying to say kane is exactly 6'8'' i think at least 6'7.75''
Vegas said on 20/Jul/07
Big Ben is basically 6'5 though, you would need a microscope to tell the difference between 6'4.8 and 6'5, and if all this stuff about morning and evening heights is real then he is probably over 6'5 at some time of the day.

Kane is about 13" or so taller than my short friend but he is leaning like in the photo with the big show i posted so he is probably losing close to an inch. He would come out at around 6'7 or so in that photo too i would suspect.

Looking at the big show/kane photo again its clear to see where all of big shows height come from (his shoulders and his head). Kane and show are level up to the pec/nipple area and from there wight gains an extra 4"+ over jacobs which is incredible, no wonder people are out estimating this guy. He has the legs and lower torso of a 6'7 man.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
Viper, I too thought that the picture with Kane and the 5'5" - 5'6" guy seemed off somehow.
taker said on 20/Jul/07
add another 6-6.5 inches on big ben then you,d have big shows height.
taker said on 20/Jul/07
i honestly only see 2 inches between ben and kane,big ben 6'5" kane 6'7" far as big show i think he has as much as 5 inches on kane.
Alex said on 20/Jul/07
Viper, you're right Kane I think would be lokking a bit little more taller than a guy 5'6. He looks over a foot taller but only by a little.
Alex said on 20/Jul/07
Vegas, I think Masters is 6'3 probably. He looks close to his billed 6'4 too.

Ben's hat could be getting in the way a bit but its 3 inches tops between Kane and Ben though. We know he was officially measured at 6'4.8 but really thats pretty much 6'5 or a mm under which is weird to argue over.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
6'4 7/8" is basically 6'5", you would be hard pressed to see 1/8" in any photograph.
Viper said on 20/Jul/07
Vegas, Kane should be looking taller than that next to a 5-5-5-6 person I would think.
Viper said on 20/Jul/07
Kane didnt have a full 3 inches I thought. He looked 6-7.5 with him. And dont forget that Big Ben is technically struggling with 6-5 himself.
mini said on 20/Jul/07
do you need glasses kane looks 3'' taller than big ben
Vegas said on 20/Jul/07
In that 2005 photo Big shows left nipple and kane's right nipple are identical in location. DaMan if kane is lower there then KANE MUST have longer legs and a bigger upper body than big show. The only wrestler standing at the top of that platform is carlito (and he is losing height from that due to the fact he is further from the camera); show, kane and masters are side by side basically.

BTW Chris Masters looks about 6'3 there next to kane and show.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
Or rather, Big Show's left foot is on the platform.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
Vegas, the eyeline method is skewed slightly in your friend's favor due to Kane's chin tucking. Their heads are definitely not being held in the same position. I could easily see Kane looking .25" - .5" taller than he already does in that photo with a head position identical to your friend's.

Remove the hair and beanie from Roethlisberger and there is 3" between them, I am basically 99% positive on that one.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
Vegas, in that 2005 photo not only is Kane leaning, but he is standing on the downward sloping ramp while Big Show is standing on the platform.
Vegas said on 20/Jul/07
Da Man; my friend is not looking up and kane is not looking down in that photo (i posted the video to prove that); kane is slightly closer to the camera although in the photo but i don't think that is affecting the photo much (i took the photo by the way). Kanes posture didn't change during the photo either, you can also see proof of that in the video.

I dont see 3" between ben and kane either (more like 2.5" or so). Kane is between 6'7 and 6'7.5 barefoot. Rob is not going to change his mind on this one, basically the case is as good as closed. 6'7.5 is fair enough as it keeps nearly everyone happy.
Anonymous said on 20/Jul/07
In the Team Raw photo the leaning Kane is 6 inches shorter than Big Show (note that his head is bigger than ordinary). Without leaning there would be 4.5 - 5 inches difference. So Big Show is 7', Kane is 6'7.25 - 6'7.5''.
In the picture with Big Ben, Kane wears his wrestling boots, with normal footwear their real difference would be 2.5 inches.
Da Man said on 20/Jul/07
I see 3" between Roethlisberger and Kane, I think Ben's "afro" (the only word I can think of to describe his hair) underneath the beanie is throwing some off. It looks like there is a 3.5" difference between Kane and Vegas friend. However, Kane doesn't appear to be standing as erect as Vegas' friend, (Vegas' friend is looking upwards while Kane has his chin tucked and is looking downwards a bit) so there looks to be 3.75" - 4" taking into account posture, IMO.

I'm still thinking Kane is 6'7.75" - 6'8".
Vegas said on 20/Jul/07
this is an interesting photo from November 2005 Click Here

Kane is about 5-5.5" shorter than Big Show there but is leaning which is losing him about 1" or so.
mini said on 20/Jul/07
next to 6'5 big ben kane looked 3'' taller than him kane is 6'8''
Alex said on 19/Jul/07
Kane looks 6'7.5 with Vegas's 6'4 friend. And looks about the same with 6'5 Ben.
KingNick said on 19/Jul/07
Thanks Vegas, appreciate it. What do you guys think?
Ray said on 19/Jul/07
Looks like 4" difference to me between Kane and Vegas's 6'4" friend. If Vegas's friend is 6'4" barefoot than Kane is most likely 6'8" barefoot.
Anonymous said on 19/Jul/07
In the first picture there is 3.5'' difference.
In the third I see almost 3 inches, but Kane appears to be in his wrestling gear, so in reality there might be only 2.5''.

Vegas, can you post your pic with your 6'4" friend again? I saw around a 4" difference there, I'm just curious to see everyone elses opinions.
eric 1 said on 18/Jul/07
Vegas your telling me that you cant see kane being another half and inch to an inch taller than 6ft7.5. Your making it like its impossible with the outstanding proof that we have. Im not saying 6ft9 but i am saying 6ft8.5. 6ft8 minimum
Anonymous said on 18/Jul/07
If Kane was 6'8.5'' then Edge is a legit 6'4'', Big Show is over 7ft and Khali is almost his billed height of 7'3'', well they are not. So please stop pushing Editor Rob to boost him, because he is one of the right-listed wrestlers on this site.
About Kane's weight I think for most of his career he was a little bit under 300lbs, but recently it looks that he has put some fat to his body, so now he is easily over 300lbs.
kanesfan said on 18/Jul/07
hes not 6ft7 kane is way taller than than that albert is 2 inches smaller tha kane and albert is 6ft6 so kane is a legit 6ft8.5
Alex said on 17/Jul/07
Most evidence points to Kane being 6'7-6'7.5.
Vegas said on 17/Jul/07
kanesfan and eric 1 i think we need more evidence than that. Triple H admits to being 6'4 so i guess that is true as well.

If kane is 6'9 barefoot after what i saw in person i will eat this keyboard, lol (sorry jason for stealing one of your lines)
kanesfan said on 17/Jul/07
editor rob kane has actually admitted to being 6ft8.5 to 6ft9 so i would suggest you change kanes height to 6ft8.5
Thorgrim said on 17/Jul/07
i certainly second this..... based on my meetings with him, the pics shown here and that pic with the 5'11 guy above, kane cant really be under 6'8 in all fairness (without those wrestling boot upgrades of course)
Eric 1 said on 15/Jul/07
I agree Editor Rob. I think its at least fair to put him anywhere from 6ft8 to 6ft8.5
Eric 1 said on 15/Jul/07
Fonzie Its like there are some people who dont want to believe hes 6ft8.5 and over 300 pounds . I have been trying to tell everyone on here kane is 6ft8.5. He told me himself and he had a couple inches on my friend fred whos 6ft6.
Alex said on 15/Jul/07
That kid could very well be 6'1-6'2.
Jiga said on 15/Jul/07
yeah Rob please. we've had sooo much evidence that Kane is at least 6'8 not to mention a few that have met him and estimate 6'8.5 and Kane has apparently said it at different times.
jonas said on 15/Jul/07
thank you for the details JT. Editor rob you have to boost up kanes height to 6'8'' cause in that picutre kane towers over albert by 2 inches and albert as JT Said is 6'6''. so at kanes tallest 6'8.5''
JT said on 14/Jul/07
That's Albert, who IMO is at least 6'6". The camera angles aren't quite the same (it's higher in the Kane pic,) though it still looks like Kane would have him by up to an inch. The kid in the pic looks around 6'1" to 6'2".
KingNick said on 14/Jul/07
Jonas, Imposter Kane (freakin' deacon) has always drove me crazy with his height. A while back we were discussing this. There was one site that gave him a 6'3" credit, and then it got booted off the net, and every other site he was on (including foreign sites) gave him a 6'7" credit. I don't think he's 6'3" because even with lifts I don't think it's possible to get away with billing a 6'3" gyuy 6'7". He may be 6'5" and 6'7" in his boots, that seems more realistic to me. I just don't know tho.

JT, i gotta agree with Jonas. I want the details on that awesome picture!
jonas said on 14/Jul/07
imposter kane is 6ft3 in those boots the heels are 1'' and the lifts inside are 2'' so imposter kane is 6ft6 in shoes and round his height to the nearest centremetre so tha gives him a billed 6ft7 kane is clearly 3''taller than this guy JT who is that guy that kane is next to and how tall is he, and whos that big fella
JT said on 14/Jul/07

KingNick said on 13/Jul/07
Vegas, you make a real good point. I think Big Show was wearing bigger lifts towards the end of his WWE tenure. Take a look at that same link and see Batista spearing him, he's got an advantage in his shoes as well.
Vegas said on 13/Jul/07
no idea on his real height but he looks to have 8" easy on Terry Gordy's son Ray who is billed at 5'10 Click Here
hellfire boy said on 13/Jul/07
does anyone know how tall the imposter kane is i've heard him to be 6'7 and in some areas 6'3 theres some confusion here
Vegas said on 13/Jul/07
Fair enough KingNick you might be right but in person I didn't think he looked 6'8 and he certainly did not look 6'9 barefoot that i am 100% sure of.

You say Kane is around 6'10 in wrestling boots but what would that make big show then in boots Click Here (photo 3)

I think Kane was around 6'10 in the big boots he used to wear circa 1997-2001 but he is def shorter now
Thorgrim said on 13/Jul/07
in the picture, that guy (who is almost 6feet tall) is dwarfed totally.... in the evidence of that pic, if kane were to stand up totally straight and chin up, he would be nearly a full head taller.... the average man has a 10-12 inch head... kane must have at least 11 or so.... on the evidence of this pic alone kane looks like he could be EVERY bit of 6'8++... on the evidence of this pic alone (and im leaving my meeting with this man out of the argument here) he looks massive beside this guy, he looks like he could be anything up to 6'8-6'9 here. Just over 6'7 is BS quite frankly. Imagine he straightened up and lifted his head.... theres not far off a foot difference here.
KingNick said on 12/Jul/07
I've always argued that UT and Kane are very close in height and if any of them is taller, it's no more than an inch difference, and it's Kane. Fonzie's post makes a lot of sense. With all due respect Fonzie, it's almost impossible to prove what you're writing, I could have easily written the same post, I just happen to agree with your opinion here and you give me no other reason to not believe you. I think UT is 6'7" - 6'8" and Kane is 6'8" - 6'9". I think Kane is somewhere around 6'10" in his wrestling boots.

Vegas, I know your agrument is that you met the guy in person. You've had pics up in the past of your 6'4" friend with Kane. You have some of the best pics I've seen on the site, the only think I disagree with are your estimates, I think there was around a 4" difference between Kane and your friend.
Spike said on 12/Jul/07
Fonzie, completly agree with u man, so if kane is 1 inch taller, that makes taker 6'8?
Fonzie said on 12/Jul/07
I came under a diffrernt name months back. I usee to work for family fitness... for Glenn Jacobs aka kane!!! in in severvile tenneessee.I am 6'7 Glenn had a inch over he was well over 300 pounds I have worked out Glenn many times..I had worked there as a trainer. when he was injuried I helped him lose weight to 290. before his injured his bicep.. he was 330 pound..

His wife worked there to..her name is maurica.. and there two kids.. ashley.. and tia.. they Said there dad was taller cause I had asked them....ANYWHO point is all your estimate about Glenn thats how he spells his name with double n well your estimates are wrong kane was well over 300 pounds in his prime. still He is about 317 pounds now...Undertaker used to work out the gym to.. Glenn had a inch on taker.. Taker atleast 320 in his prime.. ther both big guys glenn is bigger of the two. and taller..Hope these helps you guys
wesley said on 11/Jul/07
ive met kane at a wwe autograph signing in nottinghan uk 2006 at a house show. and id say hes about 6"9 without his wrestling boots which have thought to have a 2 inch lift in them. to be honest who cares about his height hes a freaking machine.
mike m said on 11/Jul/07
no way is kane 6'10" maybe with bigger lifts like when he went face to face with the big show,and their only looked like a 2 inch height difference.kane is nothing more than 6'7" to 6,8" max imo.
Vegas said on 11/Jul/07
if kane was truly 5" taller than edge (whom i have at 6'3 but never saw face to face) then ya i could then believe 6'8. However i still see 4" between kane and edge in that video putting him at Robs listed height of 6'7-6'7.5"
chris said on 11/Jul/07
i think its time to nodge kanes height upto 6'8 or 6'8.5.... after all these discussions, resolutions and pics, kane has to be over 6'7.5
chris said on 11/Jul/07
edge is a legit 6'4. that would put kane at 6'8 or 6'8.5.. edge is a big guy. his as tall as randy orton and ortons around 6'4 to 6'5 so there you go. it looked like kane had about 4 to 4.5 inchs on edge at the most standing straight.
mike m said on 11/Jul/07
so vegas what would that make kane,would it make him 6'8" then?
Alex said on 10/Jul/07
Kane is minimum 4 inches taller than Edge, 5 inches max.
Da Man said on 9/Jul/07
Vegas, at 8:01 it looks more than 4" and Kane once again does not have the good posture he had in the beginning of the video. Kane is over 4" taller than Edge as per that video.
Vegas said on 9/Jul/07
actually the camera angle made it look like 6" at the start and kanes leaning made it look closer to 2.5" by the end but in reality it was about 4" Click Here if you pause at exactly the 8.01 mark you get the exact amount of height difference between kane and edge. Edge is a big guy, no way is kane 6" taller than him.
Da Man said on 8/Jul/07
Anonymous, ah, but Edge was holding his head up the entire sequence, looking up to Kane. When Kane did likewise, Edge did not even come up to Kane's eyeline. Kane looked at least 5.5" taller than Edge in that sequence, IMO. I thought I saw 6" several times. Edge's posture was excellent.

As for rollabluntallitaftermath, stick to rolling the blunts, my friend.
rollabluntallitaftermath said on 8/Jul/07
Kane looked three inches taller than Edge at most.
Unknown said on 8/Jul/07
id say that big daddy kane is 6'8 or 6'8.5 barefoot no more then 6'10 in wrestling gear im 6'6 myself and kane has couple of inches on me ive seen him on raw couple of months back when he was on raw and he was clearly taller then me ..
Anonymous said on 7/Jul/07
A colossus like Kane wearing lifts?! No way.
When Kane held his head up you can't judge what is the real difference, but when he held his head straight, the difference was clearly 5 inches, so Kane is 6'8'' and Edge is 6'3''.
Da Man said on 7/Jul/07
Malone is listed 6'9" everywhere. Regardless, we are also making alot of assumptions about those photos. How do we know Kane was wearing all, or any, of his lifts? How do we know the fan was wearing the same footwear? Etc, etc...

Also, did anyone see Smackdown last night? Kane looked 6" taller than Edge on his Edge's "talk show" last night, when Kane held his head up Edge was easily below Kane's eyeline.
JT said on 7/Jul/07
Bleemo, I just cut off the right shoulder of the guy in the pic with Kane to fit everyone in. The two pics are actually matched up pretty well when not cropped. Kane looks maybe an inch taller than Malone in his big boots and would be probably slightly shorter barefoot.
Bleemo said on 4/Jul/07
JT look at the photo on the right and you'll see the guy's shoulder is higher by about 2 inches and the guy is leaning in. They are still useful photos but analyse them in a different way. In the pic with kane if the guy stood up straight his head would almost come to the same level on Kane's mouth as it does on the Malone pic. I agree that Kane is probs wearing his boots therefore the just under 6'8 reading for Kane is correct.
Spike said on 3/Jul/07
w/e da man, ive seen kane and taker in the same ring together and to me they look the exact same height " eyelevel" , but i have seen pics in 1997-1998 and kane was 1 inch taller, but now adays they look the same height, so yeah same height
Da Man said on 3/Jul/07
Spike, Kane is marginally taller than Taker. Probably about .5" to an abolsute max of 1". This is old stuff, all you have to do is check out mikeV10's Isaac Yankem DDS (Kane) and masked Undertaker match pics. Kane devoid of lifts was slightly taller than Undertaker around 1995. With the massive lifts (original masked version) Kane was 2+" taller than Taker who also wore the biggest boots of his career at the time.
anonymous said on 2/Jul/07
kane looked his tallest when he wore the,s quite evident that he wore bigger lifts ,cause in a staredown with big show he only looked 2 inches shorter instead of 4 inches like he does now without the mask.
Spike said on 2/Jul/07
marcus, taker is the same height as kane, ive seen pics that show that he is the EXACT same height also, so dont tell me that b.s

chris how tall do you expect kane to be i think kane is 7ft in some areas he even looks 7ft but not saying exactly 7ft his height i think is at least 6 ft 9
chris said on 1/Jul/07
yeh good on ya jake.. havnt u scrolled down at all the other postings and chats about his height? and ur saying his 7ft. nah his not 7ft his 7'4
jake said on 30/Jun/07
kane is 7ft it even says it on official websites look that guy is 5ft11 or 6ft
and almost towers over him by 1ft at least 10-11 inches so kane is 6ft10 - 6ft11
marcus said on 29/Jun/07
spike kane is taller than undertaker he is about 6 ft 7 but kane is around 6 ft 8
Spike said on 28/Jun/07
marcus, taker clearly over 6'7 at 6'8, just think about this everyone " Undertaker in normal boots and kane in big boots, then when there in regular shoes, kane would be shorter cuz he has taker by 1 inch in staredowns, so regular shoe id bet taker is the same height or even taller"
marcus said on 26/Jun/07
kane is at least 6ft8 in that pic and undertaker is at least 6ft6.5 on his pic
big show 7ft1, khali 7ft2.

kane i,d say in gear is only 6'9" the most,show is considerably taller,like 4 inches at least.

im yeah like homeboi said.. kane is about 6'8 or 9 and 6'10 in gear
KingNick said on 22/Jun/07
Cobra, its funny you mention that in regards to his billed weight, that use to drive me crazy about Undertaker. For example, at Wrestlemania 12 UT was billed as 328lbs and Diesle at 317lbs. No way did UT look 11lbs heavier! Not to mention UT vs. Kane WM 14. Kane was billed at 326lbs and UT at 328lbs where it looked like Kane was clearly the heavier of the two.

Eric 1, glad you didn't try to tazer Kane!
Cobra said on 22/Jun/07
I can`t understand why they list him as just 320 lbs, when they are also saying he is close to 7ft. He would get away with a 330lbs+ listing easily, if you believe the height. Taker is listed as 305 lbs, Kane as 320 lbs, but I am sure the difference is closer to 30 lbs. I would say Kane is- ironically, because his listed height is so way off- pretty close to his billed weight.
His height 6ft8,5 no doubt
lambofgod said on 21/Jun/07
kane has actually said that he is 6,8.5 and about 6,10 in wrestling gear
Eric 1 said on 19/Jun/07
haha LOL King Nick that was my Tazer i told kane if he didnot tell me his real height and take a pic i would Taze him . LOL no that was just my crappy cell phone which i cant stand.

E - Giant, ur 6/11 barefoot!? damn dude, thats tall, haha

Eric, is that a cell phone or a tazer in your hand? Were you gonna tazer Kane ??? :>)
E-Giant said on 19/Jun/07
i say that kane is in the 6'9" neighborhood ive stood next to him i had about 2 inches on him im 6'11" barefoot so him being build around 7 foot or 6'10 at wwe with the lifts is definitely believable cuz he looked a lot bigger then me cuz he's 300lb or 320lb and im around 260 so weight is a factor in size too thats what u fellas keep forgeting .. i say kane is 6'8.5 or 6'9 barefoot no more then 6'10.5 at the wwe .. peace peeps
chris said on 17/Jun/07
100% sure his less than 6'5... anyway back to Kanes height. its weird how u see him next to people then you can predict his exact height... but then you will see him in another pic with a well known then his height looks shorter or taller
chris said on 16/Jun/07
there was a pic with the rock and a 6'5 Australian footballer Willie Mason. The Rock didnt look more than 6'2-3. seriously.
Viper said on 15/Jun/07
Rock is 6-3 on his tip toes :)
Danimal said on 14/Jun/07
Joey, The Rock is lucky if he is 6'3". Definitely NOT 6'5".
Alex said on 14/Jun/07
Kane doesn't wear those lifts anymore. You can clearly tell that. His lifts back then added anywhere from 2 to 3 inches to his barefoot height. You can't wrestle in lifts 4-5 inches though, 3 yes.

Snitsky's lifts give over 2 inches to his barefoot height too.
joey said on 14/Jun/07
kane 6ft8,undertaker 6ft7.5,the rock 6ft5,big show 6ft11, khali 7ft1.5, triple h 6ft3.5,viscera 6ft6, drew hankinson 6ft7 (6ft9 with kanes old boots) jbl 6ft6, chris masters 6ft5, batista 6ft3.75, snitsky 6ft4.5, hulk hogan 6ft5, andre the giant 6ft10.

show was listed at 6'11" prior to the surgery,it,s very possible that he grew an inch more,maybe 2 who knows.what year was it that he was listed at 6'11"?
Da Man said on 13/Jun/07
Why do you think Show is 6-11? Wasn't there a height comparison on the Big Show board where he looked a bit taller than Shaq?
Da Man said on 13/Jun/07
Ghost, Kane was obviously taller than Viscera there, EASILY by over an inch. I'd say by 1.5" or more. I honestly don't see how you can see them as the same there.
Arjun said on 13/Jun/07
Show is clearly 4 inches taller than Kane in that 3rd pic which Vegas mentioned.
6'7" looks right for Kane, as Show is most probably 6'11".
Da Man said on 13/Jun/07
His boots were definitely flat in the front, appearing to have a .5" - .75" sole thickness, no more. To gain 4" over barefoot height Kane would need 5+" heel, physically impossible based on the construction of his boots.
OOFatman said on 13/Jun/07
Da Man, I disagree. There is NO way that Kane's footwear in that video ONLY gave him 2.5" over his BAREFOOT height. He was 2" - 2.5" taller there than he is in his current gear, but NOT just 2.5" taller than his barefoot height. I know many on here think that wrestling in lifts is impossible, but obviously it's not. Lashley and Snitsky also wear lifts IMO. And yes, I already knew about the "heel height truth", his old boots definitely were NOT flat at the front!
Ghost said on 12/Jun/07
Click Here

Kane vs Viscera.

At the start of the match they stand face to face a few times and appear the same height.
Alex said on 12/Jun/07
If Kane had 2 inch heel with 2 inch lifts inside then he's walking on 4 inches of heel today which I can't see happening while wrestling. 4 inches will give you 3 inches of height to you. I do think he got a minimum 2 inches of height given to him though.

00Fatman, there's only one problem (major) with your reasoning. I suggest you Click Here and become a little better informed on how lifts actually work. A 4" heel does not provide anywhere near 4" of actual height increase, it will provide more along the lines of 2.5" of actual height boost UNLESS the front of the foot is also significantly raised. Kane's boots, even his older-style lifted boots, are low/flat at the tip meaning it is literally IMPOSSIBLE for Kane's HEIGHT to have been boosted by 4". Kane's height wasn't boosted by more than 2.5" in his original gear, less today.

Kane vs Viscera

These two appear very close in height. I think Viscera is 6'7 or atleast very close to it. I just can't see Kane being 6'8 or over in this match.

BTW I much prefer the scary-viscera to the love-machine -Viscera.

To me Kane is 6'7" to 6'7.5" at the most. In that video posted by Da Man, it looks as though there is about a 1.5" difference in height b/w old Kane and Big Show. Show was at least 6'11" there, I'd say about 7'1" in those boots. Put Kane at 6'7.5" + 2" heels + 2" lifts = a 6'11.5" Kane in boots, a 1.5" difference b/w him and Show. BTW, I haven't been on here in a while so I don't know if this has been posted, but I came across a site that sells wrestling boots. On the site they have Kane's boots with the option of 2" lifts with up to a 2" heel. Check it out Click Here

Vegas post that stardown between kane as yankem and undertaker. You will see that there is at least a 1- 1.5 inch advantage in the video. However i do agree with you. kane doesnot wear the added height boost in his boot anymore. Its obvious when we look at the 1999 king of the ring. In the king of the ring he looks with the added height about 6ft10.5 maybe 6ft11. He told me 6ft8.5 in person but i can see him being 6ft8. But still why would he say 6ft8.5 and not 6ft8 or 6ft9?? Why would he give such a weird number?? I dont think he would lie.
Danimal said on 6/Jun/07
So Vegas, you've now "established" that Nash was only 6'9"?
KingNick said on 6/Jun/07
Vegas, you do make a great point now that I'm looking at the photos more. Can a wrestler really compete in boots 2.5" - 3" high tho? It must be insanely uncomftable. And I'm sorry, he looks an easy 6'8" there with Eric and I'm not buying the "he's closer to the camera" bit :>)
Da Man said on 6/Jun/07
I agree that Kane's older lifts provided 2 - 2.5" of actual height boost which is significant.
Alex said on 6/Jun/07
Kane's lifts gave 2-2.5 inches to his height I can bet on.
eric 1 said on 6/Jun/07
thats wear your wrong vegas . Isaac yankem was taller than undertaker than as well look again at the staredown.
Da Man said on 6/Jun/07
Mike m, I agree.
Vegas said on 6/Jun/07
KingNick you think Kane's boots gave him just 1.5" height boost in 1999??? thats only roughly the same as a normal pair of sneakers such as Nike Shox.

Kane was 2" taller than taker in that gear in 1997 at bad blood and taker was the same height as issac yankem so his boots were giving him about 2.5-3" boost (internal lifts i supect more than heel) After all kane is taller there next to show than 6'9 Nash was in either wcw or wwf by about an inch!!!! and about 2-2.5" taller than 6'8 akebono was or probably more!!!!

photo 3 shows the real difference in height between wight and jacobs Click Here and its about 4" not just the 2" in that video; the video is here too with kane and show side by side at the start Click Here
joey said on 6/Jun/07
big show actual height is 7ft and kane in that video looked the same height
so kanes actual height is 6ft9 cause those lifts make him 7ft if 7ft is kanes actual height 6ft7.5 is completely wrong look at eric in that photo he got to be more than 5ft11 he looks more 6ft2-ish
KingNick said on 5/Jun/07
Da Man, awesome clip! I always pegged Kane at 6'8.5", Big Show 6'11". In shoes at those times, I'd say Kane would be at least 6'10". Big Show with shoes I think 7' at that time. The only reason it only looks like a 1" difference there in my opinion is cuz Show won't straighten out his neck.
mike m said on 5/Jun/07
kanes lifts in the 90,s had to be at least 2 inches minumum.
Eric 1 said on 5/Jun/07
Da Man you are 100% right . He must of had some lifts in his shoes. The way i see it now i feel that kane no longer wears lifts due to bad knees and just wears a big heal. Back then he prob had the extra lift in the boot as well as the big heel. Now and days i dont think he has any extra lift anymore inside the boot.
Da Man said on 5/Jun/07
Interesting staredown between old-school Kane and Big Show. Click Here
Further evidence that currently Kane wears nowhere near the lift he did in the 90s.
Vegas said on 2/Jun/07
That dude on Singh's page was rite Alex, Michael Cole did say the 7'2 Khali on SNME Click Here and JBL says Undertaker is 7ft!!!

Offically the WWE list Singh at 7'3 Click Here
Alex said on 2/Jun/07
During Saturday Night's Main Event last July when Show and Khali faced off they were saying Show was 7'0 while Khali was 7'3 and there sure wasn't a 3 inch difference, not even with Khali standing more straight. 2 inches tops counting Khali's better posture.
Danimal said on 2/Jun/07
They are billing Khali at 7'4" now because Big Show is gone and they can get away with it.
Vegas said on 2/Jun/07
no they are not billing Kane at 7'4; still 7'3; JR on raw last Monday this guy is bigger than 7'3 maybe 7'4 and Cena said 7'5 giant a few times.
KingNick said on 1/Jun/07
WWE is billing Khali as 7'4" now? Wow.
eric 1 said on 1/Jun/07
Ghost i think your forgetting about Giant Gonzales. He was 7ft6 and they said he was 8ft. How about the Great Khali now . Now they are saying hes 7ft4 to 7ft5. The man is 7ft2 max. Kane is 6ft8.5 thats legit. They are exaggerating by 3.5 to 4 inches max. The man is no less than 6ft8.
Da Man said on 1/Jun/07
I think Kane is more like 6-7 min 6-8 max. I've yet to see a photo with a fan where the guy is standing tall.
Ghost said on 1/Jun/07
I posted that video, forgot to put my name there.

Yes, Kane's posture is very bad in that video, making him look 6'5 or something next to Vince and Austin. If he stood straight he would look around 6'7 I think. Kane has to be the most overbilled wrestler height-wise in the WWE today. Anybody with eyes can see that the guy is nowhere near 7 feet tall. It appears Kane is 6'7,5 max.
mike m said on 1/Jun/07
kane did look suprisingly short next to vince.from that clip it appeared he only had maybe 4 inches on vince , imo he only looked 6,5" .
Vegas said on 31/May/07
At his tallest in that video Kane looks approx 6" taller than 6'1 Vince or 6'7. I have been saying 6'7-6'7.5" for kane all along since meeting him in person. At what point in that video is Kane 7.5"-8" taller than Vince that some here believe him to be???
Da Man said on 31/May/07
Actually Anonymous, at about the 3:05 - 3:10 mark when Kane is actually standing up halfway straight and the camera isn't heavily favoring Vince he looks 6+" taller tham McMahon. The top of McMahon's head is clearly a couple inches below Kane's eyeline there. The whole sequence Kane was taking a very wide stance and stooping forward heavily, I guess to illustrate that he was "uncomfortable" without his mask.
Alex said on 31/May/07
DaMan, Batista is a strong guy yet he could struggle a bit to powerbomb Kane. Shows Lesnar is def stronger than Batista.
Jason said on 31/May/07
If you look at him with Booker, he's barely 2 inches taller.
