I've met both men in person and also Kevin Nash and have pictures with Kane and Kevin Nash. Would I make Kane I would think and his peak he was probably a tad over 6'8 barefoot. Kurgan seem taller when I met him and I could even believe him to be about 6'10 at his peak if not slightly taller and Kevin Nash was well into his fifties and still looked over 6'9 because he was taller than my friend Jeremy who is Dr measured at just under 6 feet 8 in. I have the picture between Jeremy and Kevin Nash and Nash was clearly taller.

Canson said on 18/Sep/23
Kane looks over 6’6” (6’6.5ish) and taker 6’6-6’6.5 occasionally but no less than 6’6 today. 6’6 and 6’5.5 are too low for them
Matt Thomas logan said on 16/Sep/23
Kane and undertaker are only 6'5.5 guys today ill say kane being taller so kane like weak 6'6" and undertaker 6'5.5 today

Well Doc 1967 undertaker claimed 6ft8 1/2 back in 2001 you said kane is taller butt only in thick padded boots.
Doc1967 said on 11/Sep/23
My Bro is 6'9" Undertaker was a little shorter. Kane my bro has only seen at an event he was taller but had boots that could rival KISS boot height.

How tall do you think he is, Rob?

The angle is favouring, but it could only be about 2 inches at that moment.

I never see kane near 6ft8, he is 6ft7 flat

Taker was not 6'8" I don't think taker was even 6'7.5 I personally think taker at peak height was 6'6" and kane 6'7

@ Height Tracker,

6'5.5 in a bit too low for Kane. I think he is 6'7 or very close to it. Without the Lifts he is still a tad taller than taker who is a tad bit over 6'6 himself ( in his prime).
James B 5ft8 said on 8/May/23
6’6.5 now
Alex 6'0 said on 8/May/23
Kane definitely cleared 300lbs his first few years. Looked about or close to 325lb billing. In 2002 on he became leaner less mass.

@Slim92 - I also heard that interview, his exac words were "I was a legit 6'8-6'9 guy walking the streets with long hair down my back"..
Andrew Lawrence said on 18/Apr/23
They put lifts in his boots and even them he amounted to about 6'7.
Jordan87 said on 18/Apr/23
All I know is whether he is 6'6 or 6'8...He was most likely one of the strongest Wrestlers ever in the business. Both Big Show and Lesnar have said he was stronger then they are. Lesnar was UFC HW Champ as well as a wrestler before joining WWE and Show was around 430 pounds at his most athletic. Kane is one scary individual. Likely around 290 lbs. in 1997 at 6'7ish.
Slim92 said on 17/Apr/23
@Alex 6’0 he actually did. I’ll try to find it, but it was on YouTube and it was a talk show style interview and he claimed “ legit 6’9 walking the streets with hair down my back”
Alex 6'0 said on 9/Apr/23
Canson, yea kane never claimed over 6'8 outside of wwe character. His peak definitely could've been 6'7.5
Matt Thomas logan said on 28/Mar/23
6'6" today 6'7.5 in the 90s
dewie 5ft9 175cm said on 12/Mar/23
Both Taker kane claimed 6ft8 but taker was more 6ft7.25 201cm barefoot kane closer to 6ft7 3/4 202.6cm peak barefoot.

Canson said on 11/Mar/23
He can’t be 6’9 if he only ever claimed about 6’8”
MikeMcgee said on 10/Mar/23
Kane might be legit like 6'9. There's a segment from 2001 during the invasion angle where he standing next to Undertaker and literally towers over him. So Taker is either like 6'4 or 6'5 or Kane was legit like 6'8 or taller back then. I mean it's a noticeable 3-5 inch difference between the two.
Toby Barrett said on 12/Feb/23
What happened to that photo of him and Mamun? The Imgur link doesn't show the image for me.
Plissken said on 11/Feb/23
I went to a couple WWE shows when I was younger and we were lucky enough to get them here in Scotland. Kane is the biggest guy I've ever seen. I seen Big Show, Undertaker, Sean O'Haire, Viscera etc.. and for some reason none of them seemed as big as Kane, the guy was just huge and intimidating.. honestly the biggest guy I've ever seen in my life. Shocks me seeing that he's shorter than Big Show etc, because he seemed far bigger and intimidating. I was front row in disbelief.
Alex 6'0 said on 7/Feb/23
Kanes peak is the listing here i agree on. Today 6'6 range. 6'6-6'6.5.
dewie 5ft9 175cm said on 30/Jan/23
Yes kane was a true 6ft8 barefoot but taker climed 6ft8 himself but yes kane was a little bite taller.
Alex 6'0 said on 29/Jan/23
Kane even claimed 6'8 himself. He never even claimed his billed 6'10-7'0 heights lol. I do believe he was at least 6'7 peak maybe 6'7.5 but no more.
Jordan87 said on 27/Jan/23
@ Arther A

Unibomb is taller then Taker. Yes, as Kane, Glen wore lifts, but Outside them as unibomb and Whatever the other dumb gimmick wsa the Jacobs did, Taker is the shorter man.
James.B 172cm said on 26/Jan/23
Rob in the wrestling boots he wore as Kane in the 90s was he like Kevin nash height range in those?
Editor Rob
With a barefoot Kevin, he'd be close in those boots.

Leighton Tang, correct we don't. They could be wearing vastly different shoes in each photo.

The only comparison there that's really useful is Paul Wight approximately head taller than ~5'11 Dean Cain

Kane looks slightly taller than Taker in most pics i've seen, so reckon he really is.
dewie 5ft9 175cm said on 22/Dec/22
Look I am a big fan of undertaker but I have to admit taker said kane is a little bit taller but the funny thing is they both climbed 6ft8 if so kane 6ft8 1/4 6ft8 1/2.barefoot.peak.
Resurrection of Edwards said on 22/Dec/22
also there was a creditable poster in this site going by the name mamun.he had post his photo with kane and kane looked near 6’8 with 5’8 mamun.kane looked 6’7.75 with mamun and it was out of gear.and there is 6’1.5 peak ben bell who posted his photo with peak taker and taker clearly looked 6’7 flat with that guy.you can check his instagram.
Resurrection of Edwards said on 22/Dec/22
@Arthur A

no isaac didn’t.how can you say just by looking that single video?yankem was clearly taller than taker.even unabomb(prior lift kne) was visibly taller than taker.and bruce pitchard clearly mentioned that undertaker wore internal lifts in badblood podcast.if undertaker himself admitted of being shorter than then there is no doubt.why are you insisting?
Edward Mullen said on 21/Dec/22
Kane looking extra tall here on a WWF episode Click Here
Arthur A said on 21/Dec/22
Isaac Yankem wore lifts in the match against Undertaker. Look very closely and you can tell. In the stare down with Undertaker when he was Unabomb (just before the Isaac Yankem gimmick) he is a bit smaller - just look at the video link of their match l sent earlier. I have also seen Kane say he was about 6ft 8, and around 7ft on TV, both of which were untrue.
Resurrection of Edwards said on 21/Dec/22
@Arthur A

no.isaac yankem was a separate gimmick.only gimmick kane had lifts specially in the 90s.it show a staredown between yankem and taker.both guys were at peak and wasn’t wearing lifts.yankem was taller.undertaker has himself admitted of being shorter than yankem.i’m sorry dude!
Arthur A said on 20/Dec/22
Resurrection of Edwards - Undertaker was referring to the Kane character, in which he wears 2 inch soled boots with lifts inside to make him look 6ft 9 - 6ft 10.In real life he was around 6ft 6 1/2 inches to 6ft 6 3/4 inches barefoot, about the same as Sid Eudy. Do not rely on circumstantial evidence to back up your claims based on who said what. Undertaker, for instance, has said many times that Big Show was 7ft 2 and 500 pounds, even though he was only ever 7ft peak, and probably just under 500 pounds. @Editor Rob - why are people still arguing with the irrefutable evidence that Glen Jacobs as Unabomb was a fraction shorter than the Undertaker, and that as Isaac Yankem he wore lifts (look closely and you can tell).
Hyper said on 20/Dec/22
Taker admitted that Kane is a bit taller than him.

Even though WWE exaggerates their heights, at least Taker was honest about that.
Resurrection of Edwards said on 20/Dec/22
No he isn’t.taker isnt and wasn’t taller than kanr.bruce pitchard claims kane was taller than taker at peak.in badblood interview,bruce claims both guys were similar in height with kane having an edge.bruce claimed kane wore an outer lifts but taker had his inner lifts.bruce clearly claims kane is taller than taker.even in the undertaker “last ride” documentary,it shows isaac yankem aka kane face to face with taker.taker claims “well kane,he wasn’t much taller than me”.why would taker say that if he was taller.

Canson said on 3/Dec/22
Not sure if he’s only 6’6 now but if Taker is really taller than he is which I am skeptical about, maybe he is. Maybe taker has regained height and is back to 6’6.5 these days



dude,kane might still be 6’7 flat if taker is 6’6.25/6’6.5.i dont see jacobs being lesser than flat 6’7 if that’s the case.

That always makes me genuinely laugh "Has been billed 6ft 10 and some believe he stood 7ft."

It seems like to your average Joe if someone is like 6'7'' or above, they are "7ft" or "nearly 7ft". I think that a lot of people 6'7'' or over could get away with that talking to people who are about a foot shorter - certainly with women who are about 5ft.

Wrestling heights are hilarious and heavyweight boxing heights seem to be catching up to them for comedy value.

If The Undertaker is 6'5.5(197cm) as i think, Kane Is around 6'6.5 today.

Editor Rob
Today maybe we're looking at 6.5 as lowest range.



@canson

glad to have you back may man.how are you dude?i personally think the listed height for kane is very much possible specially after someone said that taker is 6’6 or even 6’6.25.there is easily half inch or possibly more than half inch between taker and kane.atleast 1/2 difference but then again,kane pulled off looking 6’7 at last he may have hold the morning height.

Peak height, I agree was 6'7½.

I feel today there is more chance he's under 6ft 7 than a full 6ft 7

@SeanR -- I don't think Matt Morgan was that tall -- Remember, this is when Kane came back without the lifts, and Morgan was wearing big lifts in his boots..

I think that Morgan without his lifts was probably 6'8.25.. Kane without his lifts was 6'7.5 and in his lifts was probably 6'8.8 or 6'8.9
SeanR said on 21/Jun/22
I know this angle is bad but Matt Morgan looks near 2 inches taller than Kane here in 2003: Click Here

Morgan did have the footwear advantage here but probably only by a 1/2 inch

Interesting quote from Bubba Ray Dudley regarding Kane. "Because in that moment in time I realized, 'Boy, you done f'd up.' And everything stopped for a second. There was no sight, no sound, no nothing. Like time stood still. And all I heard coming from Undertaker's corner was his brother Kane, all 6'6", 350 pounds of him, I see him jumping up and down in the corner, like a fat kid in a candy store and he's going, '(laughs hysterically) He's going to kill you (laughs), he's going to kill you.' I'm looking at Kane, but I'm listening to Glenn Jacobs basking in the glory of the fact that I was about to get killed."
ced said on 3/May/22
Dude was 6'7.8 at his peak.. A smidge under a real 6'8. Now, he's around 6'7, might drop to a 6'6.75 in the afternoon. At his peak, definitely woke up over 6'8.. The only reason that Kane wore lifts was because Vince wanted him even more gigantic than he already was.

Take a look at some staredowns backstage between Show and Kane.. Around 2002 when they were feuding with Chuck and and Billy.. Big Show (6'11 at the time, and in boots 7'0) has about 2.5 inches on Kane.. Kane in his lifts hit 6'9.25-6'9.5 for sure.

Or take a look at BOD Vs DOA.. Them Harris Boys were each 6'6 and Taker and Kane towered them Taker by 2 inches and Kane by 3 - 3.5..

Kane in his lift was about the same size as Kevin Nash.. Compare some photos of Syxx/Nash with X-Pac/Nash.

Not sure if Anthony Brian Logan will receive a page anytime soon, but if he does, 6'1.5" would be a safe bet listing for him. He has nearly 1 million subs on Youtube so he should be a fairly famous figure.

Kane next to Youtube political commentator Anthony Brian Logan Click Here who has claimed both 6'2" and 6'3" on Twitter. But I'd say Logan stands more around 6'1.25" or so. And Kane's around 6'6.5" today IMO.

He1ghtexpert49 said on 12/Feb/22
Well he did wear lifts to seem like the younger, better, badder version of Taker. Taker said something like that in one podcast. They wanted to present him as an upgraded Taker.

Yeah that’s why they billed Kane as 7’0 cause Taker was billed 6’10. Since in reality Taker was 6’7.25 and Kane 6’7 5/8 they had to stick him in big lifted boots to seal it as a 2” difference

@Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10'

My thinking of Vaugn being on his tip toes on that pic, is because he's probably used to being the tallest in any group of people he surrounds himself with...and the tallest at any event he's part of. Being 6ft3 + kinda luls you into enjoying being the biggest guy in the room....UNTIL a guy who IS taller and probably comfortably taller walks in...you're gonna playfully tippy-toe in pics to appear ''not that much shorter'' Vaugn was stretching out as much as he possibly could and was still shorter and WAS to your view ''closer to the camera''. But you cannot completely rule out the possibility of tip-toeing as the bottom half of his body isn't present in the pic.
Mohnish Rathia said on 3/Feb/22
I think kane is 6"10" with his boot and his real height is 6"7" or 6"8"
ChaosControl1 said on 26/Jan/22
I will be honest I don’t quite rule out 6’7 5/8-6’7.75 for his peak. He probably was about 6’10 or a very tiny smudge over in lifted wrestling boots
CookieCutter said on 25/Jan/22
I believe he was 6'8 at his peak. I don't believe the 6'7 claims and the 6'6 peak claims are ridiculous. Possibility he wore lifts but honestly why would it be just him? Taker, big show and the entire locker room would probably wear lifts too if that was the case.

Mark henry during table for 3 with Show and Kane said something along lines of "you are like what 6'7?" then realized he prob ed up by saying real height since Kane is billed at 6'10-7ft so he quickly corrected himself "you are like 6'7 - 6'10, somewhere in that range?"

Glenn seems very honest and he himself said at his biggest he was 6'8 and 320 pounds. I believe him. He seems like too nice to lie lol, and also he could've claimed 6'10 or 7' but he didn't. He was honest.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 5/Jan/22
@Philip McMullin i don't think vaughn is tiptoing there, there's no need to do that if you're that tall, and he's not the type of guy who would do that like Tyson Fury, i think Vaughn these day could be a pushing 195 cm, i assume 6'4 1/2 today is him in normal posture, and Vaughn is closer to the camera, so it dfinitely gave him the advantage, take away that, i still see Vaughn at a pushing 6'5 and Kane at above 6'6 area, maybe 6'6,5
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 5/Jan/22
peak height was at least as listed, tho his google height seems to be too out of the gate.

That pic with Vaugn is void considering we cant see if Vaugn's on his tiptoes...which looks like he is. Glen typically doesn't wear big boots or shoes outside of the ring and still is able to pull off 6ft7 MINIMUM. look at him on the new WWE show where he finds his mask again with AJ francis and taker, still clearly the tallest of the 3 guys!
Gary T said on 19/Nov/21
Certainly never above 6'6 1/2. He has been pictured with Vince Vaughn and looks the same height, if not shorter. Kevin Nash, who somebody mentioned, was clearly taller, probably a 6'8 maximum. Undertaker goes about 6'5 and a half peak, but shorter now.
dewie 5ft9 175cm said on 30/Oct/21
Ced there is a 6ft7 guy meeting kane many years ago he asked kane how tall are you he said around 6ft9 and the guy said really kane said l am 6ft9 in shoes barefoot 6ft8.25 and the guy asked kane how tall taker is he said 6ft8.
ced said on 28/Oct/21
If anybody has the warzone video game from 1998, I think they accudently revealed Kane’s real height.. in the game it says he’s 6’9, 326 pounds. I think he was probably 6’9 in shoes, and I’ve heard his real height back then was 6’8.5.. back in 2001, there was an article and I can’t remember what it was, but it mentioned Kane’s real height as being 6’8.25.

A good measure would be when Undertaker took on Barry Windham.. Barry was a legit 6’5 with those cowboy wrestling boots probably 6’5.5.. and Taker looked about 3 inches taller than him in his boots..

I think Taker without boots was close to 6’8.. about 6’7.75.. Kane 6’8.5.. and Sid about 6’6.5 in boots would be 6’7..

I think Nash was about 6’9.5. at his peak.. and 6’10 in boots.. Kurgan was about the same as Nash.. but Kurgan had MASSIVE boots as well.. and was probably about 6’10.5 in them.. they were at least an inch

Canson said on 7/Oct/21
@Alex: agreed. And Vegas met him near his prime and said he looked a solid 6’7”. It’s possible being a guy who lost an inch throughout the day (at that height) that he could’ve been 6’7.5 earlier in the day or even 6’7 3/8” and rounded up or 6’8” in shoes. I’m ok with his peak height though too. I guess I’m a rarity being I’m between two marks but nearer the lower mark and I round down despite being exactly the higher one in the morning. Same with Chaos as he often claims 6’2 the same way I claim 6’4”

Canson, correct Glenn Jacob's has claimed 6'8 a few times and not his billed 6'10 or 7'0 heights lol. Meaning he was in between 6'7 and 6'8. 6'7.5-6'7.75 but no more. Though i read years ago as a teen that kanes real height was 6'7. 6'7.5 listing is fair.

The highest he would have ever hit barefoot would've been maybe 6'8.5 and we are talking fresh out of bed after a long sleep, and assuming he loses a full inch during the day.

So in his biggest boots he would've cleared 6'10, but obviously he never wrestled straight out bed!

Canson said on 18/Sep/21
@Cansont: if he were really 6’8.25 he would be claiming 6’9”. That means he would’ve woken to 6’9 and likely been measured close to that. Glenn Jacobs has always claimed 6’8”. He was no taller than Rob lists him here if even that high. I don’t rule out 6’7.25”

@football fan. Your comparing two completely different types of guys . Kane is the Michael Myers horror movie guy , on his way to 7ft , Muscular build but ultimately lean for his height. Basically a scary Mofo.

Lesnar on the other hand is 188cm and near enough 300lb. Close to Kane’s actual weight. Jock type guy , clean cut and all American .

Both monsters in there own right but both running in completely different leagues .

In Jordan's pic Sapp's head is a good inch bigger than Akebono's head Lol, in reality it's just the opposite. Means Sapp is favored in Jordan's pic. Sapp's head is actually surprisingly small for his frame, only 9in range. This is pretty much the truth, Akebono was still close to 6'7 back in 2015 Click Here Click Here

Akebono @ 6-5 is a pretty laughable assessment.
Football fan said on 7/Sep/21
Kane in his prime was very very impressive. He was more impressive than Lesnar, he was a monster. He had curly long hair and a fiery red gear and scary mask. He was extremely strong and massive. Look at his arms in 2001.

Peak height anywhere from 6'7.75"-6'8.25". Imo, 6'8"-6'8.25"

thanks
Jordan87 said on 30/Aug/21
@ Robbe,

His measuring results? All I see on his page is Akebono himself saying he was 6'5 at 18, as far as proof. Where are the Measured results you are talking about? Someone posted them from a source?

Take the 6'7 you have Akebono at, and put it at 6'5.5-6'6", and show won't be 6'11". Rob has him at 6'6.75", I don't think that's entirely accurate, especially since the man said he was 6'5 at 18.
ChaosControl said on 28/Aug/21
No consistency whatsoever with billed heights. Mick Foley was billed at his real height of 6’2. Same for Sting. Some like Drew McIntyre are rounded up, cause he’s 6’4.5-6’4.75. Then some like Kane are just ridiculous. Big Show has been billed 7’2 in WWF and 7’4 in WCW

@ Ben Calimier,

Yep, and then it was changed to 7'0, b/c in reality he was not even 6'11.

During the Akebono match, he was billed at 7'0", if he was 6'11, he would still have been billed much higher. WWE Gets carried away.
Ben Calimer said on 27/Aug/21
Show was billed 7’2” when he first came into WWE.
Jordan87 said on 27/Aug/21
@ Miko,

Akebono admitted he 6'5 at age 18, I doubt he grew 3". He was listed at 6'8, you think that's his actual height? Always there is inflation dude.

Its wrestling, if big show was 6'11.5", they would not have listed him at just 7'0 at that point. The WWE gives 3" of height to wrestlers who are not even 6'5, you think they would list Big Show at only 1/2" taller than he really was? No lol
miko said on 26/Aug/21
Akebono was near 6'8 at his tallest and obviously wasn't past his prime in 2005 when he was 35 years old, and he's only 3 years older than Big Show.

The staredown with Akebono was one the biggest pieces of evidence out there that Show was still close to 7'0 at that point, and likely in the 6'11.5 range at that time.
Jordan87 said on 26/Aug/21
AT Robbe,

Show with Thick boots on was only 4" On Akebono, ( Look at the footwear) (6'6.75) , that's 6'10.75", take away his thick shoes, he is not 6'11. He isn't even 6'11 with them on in you ask me.

Show was in his early 30's, he did not Shrink by then lol.

@ ChaosControl,

Yes, Reigns is measured at 6'2.25", I see Can Edge Being that height if he gets himself up there. Even With Rob ( Taking in Rob's higher Footwear) adjust his posture he should come to around Reigns height.

Edge is also taller than Lesnar ( Who NFL Listed at 6'2").

Still, to report 6'5"? NO NO
ChaosControl said on 24/Aug/21
@Jordan87 have you seen an Edge match since his return? His neck is always forward and he can’t stand up straight thanks to the neck injuries. When he manages to stretch himself up straight he looks similar height to Roman Reigns
Rounak Singh said on 24/Aug/21
He is taller than baron Corbin so i would say around 6'7" today,he could measure 6'6.75 at evening or night though.
Jordan87 said on 24/Aug/21
@ Canson,

I will say 7'0 is def out, Full 6'11" I think is possible but I had to personally bet, I would still place under it. Show was one of my 5 favorites during his heel Turn when he fought the rock in 2000ish. I try to keep in mind the man at around 420 pounds was very athletic ( 6'10 or 6'11") and actually would perform dropkicks at that weight. A True Giant. Strowman is big and strong, but a Prime Big Show ( Pre-2003) would dwarf him in both height and mass.

@ ChaosControl,

Edge I can see being a bit taller at Peak, not sure a Full Inch. That's tough by that age, although not impossible. These guys get the hell beat outta them all year round, no Offseason. I just think is crazy for a 6'2-6'3" Man to report 6'5". And Even crazier are booker T and Rikishi, 6'0 footers, reporting 6'3. What in the blue hell?
Canson said on 24/Aug/21
@Jordan87: Show was likely 6’11 peak height though imho. However I’m iffy on 7’0”. If not 6’11, 6’10.75
ChaosControl said on 24/Aug/21
@Jordan87 Edge was definitely a solid/strong 6’3 at his peak and still looks a bit over 6’2 now. Doubt he’s a full 189 but something like 188.5 I’d could believe
Jordan87 said on 23/Aug/21
@ Vegas, His posture may have been Affected , but slightly. 37 Years old is too young to significant height, not matter how heavy. Shaq is the Same Age, and while not a Fat as Big Show, Was 360+ Pounds himself at that point.

Canson, True , I didn't consider Shaq's Morning height being 7'0. He was also noticeably shorter than Wilt.

My Point is, despite the NCCA Listing him at ( Yes in my Opinion) 3" over his actual height, He doesn't ever appear to look 6'11".

I would however, say, for a short period in Big Show's wrestling Career he may have been over 6'10, But not by Much.

To nail down this exact is tough, b/c we are talking about massive human beings.

Going by How Shaq( A 7'0 Morning height Measured Man) , Big show looked from 1.5" to 2" shorter. So say 1.75". Show would be around 6'10" with Him, I had said 6'9.75" before.

Again I would say:
Big Show ( Peak 6'10.25-6'10.5""), 6'10" with Shaq( age 37 )
Viscera - 6'5-6'5.5" ( Met him, which useless since at 5'10.5" myself, would not be able to nail down 1/2" , Rikishi comes up to his eyelevel though, and is no taller than 6'0 with Rob) Was Listed at 6'6", cannot be taller, never looked taller.
Kane- 6'7 ( Shorter Without his Special Boots)

Also a Side note, I booker T's 6'3" report is Completely Dumb, looks 6'0.5" tops. Edge Reports 6'4 and 6'5? With Rob looks 6'2" ( When accounting for posture).

All I know is the WWE Listed big show at 7'0......You really think he was 7'0? lol....NO YOU DONT!
M Shankar said on 23/Aug/21
There is a photo of Kane standing with 6'5" basket ball player, Kane looks like 6'7" definitely
Canson said on 22/Aug/21
@Vegas and Jordan87: looks more like 1.5” between Show and Shaq here. Likely that Show had already lost height though. If Shaq was only ever 6’11.75 afternoon height which is believable since he was shorter than Wilt, Show was 6’10 or maybe a hair over back then. He could be under 6’10 today by a hair. I don’t rule That out but I rule out less than 6’9.5 afternoon height
Vegas' said on 20/Aug/21
Jordan 87 once again I researched every college player measured 6'5 barefoot and over by NBA over 5 year period and not one person was overlisted 3 inches in college. Only small % were overlisted by 2 inches...

You can argue NCAA listings but they aren't overlisting by 3-4 inches anyway. Tim Duncan was listed 6'10 by NCAA right around same time

Are you arguing Wight in 2009 was same height as Wight in 92-95?. Certainly his posture if anything was dramatically worse in 2009. I first met Wight in person 20 odd years ago and his looked obese and nothing like his early to mid 90s self then.

I never met Mabel but I did meet someone who was photographed in person with him.

Jordan87 said on 17/Aug/21
@ Vegas,

There is a tad more than 2" Between Show and Shaq from the same event, and every event after. No Less than 2". The Video where they were both In Suits is the only time Big Show stacks up, and that's by WWE's Design.

The NBA and NCAA over list at times. Big Show's 7'1" Listing Was Bogus. 6'10" is plenty Tall, pics with Shaq shoot down Show ever hitting 7'0.

Shaq 7'0.25"= Big Show 6'10 tops. I still stand by what I said despite how funny you think it is. Show was closer to 6'10 than 7'0".

Click Here

Looking at the Picture with Viscera and Starks again, I can see easily 1". 6'7" is a morning height no doubt. Still think Viscera doesn't hit 6'6". Like I said Earlier, I wouldn't be shocked if he touched 6'5.5". All I know is he was enormous, one of the Weight listings that the WWE Didn't inflate. The 450-496 listings. Not sure if he was ever really 554 like they listed him as Mable. He looked easily 450.
ChaosControl said on 16/Aug/21
Kane, if his listing is correct (which I think it is), has held on to his height well for a 50-year old pro wrestler, especially one of his massive size who peaked during the Attitude Era.

Big Show peak 6'9 3/4 is laughably bad estimate. That would mean he was overlisted 3.25 inches by NCAA. When I researched 150 players over recent 5 year period measured over 6'5 barefoot by NBA not a single person was overlisted by 3 inches in college.. not even one.

That photo is a division 1 team. If Wight was 6'9 there then the next tallest player on a division 1 team didn't even reach 6'5, again an impossibility Click Here

Kane was never listed @ 6-7, if it showed up in a magazine it was typo and not a shoot height.

He was billed at 6-9 as Isaac Yankem.
He was billed at 6-8 on his Truman State college basketball team

Now I’m not arguing for a 6-8 Glenn Jacobs as I don’t think it’s unusual for college basketball to list in-shoe height or round up.

My personal opinion is that Rob has it spot on (peak and current) but Glenn was never billed at 6-7, the only time that listing has ever appeared was at the top of this page.
ChaosControl said on 3/Aug/21
@Jordan87 YES! Finally someone who agrees that Viscera is overlisted!
Jordan87 said on 3/Aug/21
@ Pierre,

I Agree. I have an old magazine where Kane was Listed at 6'7", LISTED!....Big Show was also listed at 6'11 on a basketball roster, somehow people seem to think that a College Team won't give any extra Inch on their Rosters. Somehow they think that Big Show was Under listed in college which is just a big NO.

For me Based on Evidence I have seen for the last 20 years or so:

Big Show - 6'10.5"
Kane - 6'7"
Viscera ( Whom I Met ) was around 6'5" ( Easily 450 pounds, that I will tell you!) , ( Listed for awhile at 6'6" in the WWE before being shot up to 6'9").

@Vegas .I agree with you for Kane's pic.The guy was 6"7' absolute max and helped by huge wrestler shoes.
About Big Show = take in consideration Big Show had sometimes big wresler shoes too....more discreet than Kane's shoes but very advantageous imo...You can search here an old comment posted by an internaut named"Kan" = he posted a pic of Big Show wearing only one of his wrestler shoe and standing barefoot on the other foot = he had to tiptoeing a lot on his only bare foot to try to stand approximatively straight ...and his foot is a long foot...

Big Show for me has never been 7"0'
Vegas' said on 1/Aug/21
Ced once again I met Kane in person in early 2004 out of gear on flat ground inside Hilton Hotel in Manhattan. He wasn't 6'8 then. That was his approximate height in shoes not barefoot then. I had my 5'11 1/2 barefoot brother and my 6'4 barefoot friend to compare with as he stood next to both. I find it hard to believe he lost an inch in height or more by March 2004...

You have Kane too tall and Wight (Big Show) too short in your estimates for peaks. Also Kanes platforms in late 90s were minimum 2 inches probably closer to 2.5 inches so if he was 6'8 barefoot then he was ~6'10.5 on his boots. Weights boots were normal ~1 inch sole at the time, same type as others wore like Kurt Angle
Canson said on 1/Aug/21
@Chaos: yea being a bigger wrestler a lot of these guys lose peak height at a very early age whereas some like Cena or Orton don’t lose much at all or little

Kane always has been, and always will be taller than UT. Yes some footage/shots of them together may appear otherwise. Posture, footwear, camera angles are factors.

I am 6’2 and my friend is 6’0. Some photos we appear almost the same height, and some photos I appear to tower over him by 3 inches.

Ah yes, low quality camera footage so you can’t see footwear and posture. My favourite, a Height “Expert” classic
He1ghtexpert49 said on 24/Jul/21
Lmaoooo Kane never had an inch over Taker, when he debuted he wore lifts and Taker said this himself in the Stone Cold Podcast.

It was to market him as "the younger bigger badder version" of Undertaker so he looked like a threat from a storyline perspective.

This is Undertaker VS Kane before WWE, no pushing or pulling, just two men face to face standing next to each other.
Click Here

Then he started wearing lifts and looked taller for a bit. But then he stopped wearing them again.
Click Here

This is Taker and Kane in early 2000s
Click Here

And this is UT VS Big Show in a staredown back in the late 90's.
Click Here


My conclusion is considering Show is listed at 7 ft, I definitely do not buy a 4.5+" difference between Show and Taker/Kane and it's clear as day to see, neither in their primes nor now. With regards to Taker and Kane, both are pretty identical looking in height, it's pretty hard to tell who's taller legit and who isn't.

@Ced: possible Sid was a hair over but Taker was a bit taller than him. Taker could look up to an inch taller at times. 3/4” is possible too

Here is a few staredowns from 1999 between Kane and Big Show:

Please explain these photos - Remember, Big Show also had a 1 inch platform on his boots. I believe that Kane was 6'8 at his very peak, in his boots - 6'9.25. And Big Show was 6'10.75 at his peak, and in his boots - 6'11.75

6'6" max for kane still

ced it was definitely more than 2 inches both standing straight. Wight then cranks his neck forward when camera zooms in Click Here

2 inches doesn't make sense considering Wight easily had ~4 inches on Jacobs sans platform boots like when they tagged in 2006
ced said on 16/Jul/21
Oh,

and here is a picture of Big Show's lifts in 1999.. A little different than Kane's but still a solid inch on that platform.

Kane at his very peak had a solid inch on Taker. Vince wanted Kane to be gigantic. Keep in mind, when he first debuted, he had put on a lot of weight for the Kane character. That could way down someone’s height a little bit.

If Sid was 6’6 1/4, then Taker was 6’6.75, then Kane was between 6’7.25 and 6’7.75. Somewhere in between there. With the lifts, he would have edged 6’9-6’9.25.

Take a look at the staredown between Kane and Big Show at KOTR 99, and also take a look at the stare down between Kane and Show at Insurextion 1999 - Especially Insurextion, there were only 2 inches between them, at very most 2.25.

I don’t believe Show was a full 7 feet in 99, more like 6’10.75 - and in boots he would reach 7 feet (he also wore lifts).

Kane had a solid inch on undertaker not 2-3. But they figured it looked close enough

Most people can’t guess height well and will overestimate differences

They figured he could pass 6'10 easily so went with 7'0 billed height but still more announced as 6'10. Then big show was billed 7'2 and noticeable taller than kane. And big show i think was legit 7'0 in his 20s.

And of course they billed him 7’0 because he edged out Taker who they claimed was 6’9-10

I'm 5"11.25' afternoon,there is some people who guess me 6"1'.
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 11/Jul/21
@Alex even at strong 6’2 I get inflated. Ive has guesses of 6’4, 6’5, 6’6, even 6’7. Given that a 6’7.5 Kane was probably nudging 6’10 in lifted boots I’m surprised they didn’t bill him over 7’0
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Jul/21
Chaos yea i remember 6'11 in commentary too. If we got him 6'7.5 peak it's still 3-4 inch inflation. Taller you are its easier to get away with being inflated
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 11/Jul/21
@Alex I’ve heard commentary say he was 6’11 too
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Jul/21
When kane was isaac yankem i believe he was listed 6'8. As kane he was billed 6'10 but sometimes said as 7'0

@ChaosControl 6'2.50

So Pierre is the one that believes Kane is about 6ft tall? Haha

Pierre claims Kane is around 6’5-6’5.5. Most people seem to agree that he’s 6’6.5-6’7. I’m downgrading him to 5’11 because it’s funny and I have that photo where he looks it
Hyper said on 11/Jul/21
@Alex 6’0”

I thought the same thing too. When I saw him up close as well. He’s easily over 6’6”. I honestly would’ve have thought 6’7”, when he was listed at 6’7” for current, at the time.
Alex 6'0 said on 10/Jul/21
With Kane in 2010. Unfortunately couldn't get a standing pic. He easily looked 6'7 when he walked out. I seen him fairly close

@Pierre that was a typo, I meant Chavo Guerrero. And he’s billed 5’9 but was probably less, and Kane barely looks taller there.

That's clear ...but how much....
Hyper said on 9/Jul/21
Kane was easily over 6’6” when I saw him at Galaxycon. Anthony Joshua is nowhere near this guy’s height, let alone peak.

@Pierre Click Here see he barely looks 2 inches taller than the billed 5”9’ Chaco Guerrero, he is at most a full 5”11’ to me

That would be a big lost of height from 6"5.5'(I don't talk about Chaco's height of course).I believe you have to take in consideration some parameters like postures angles of camera shoes etc ...

If anyone believes Kane is even under 6’5, Pierre would believe it.

I would believe it around as much as I would believe he's above 6"6' if anyone or even several people believes Kane is above 6"6'.

ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 6/Jul/21
@Pierre disagree he’s 6’3, peak was a weak 6’4

You have every right to think that

@Edwards= Look at in this video how much big are looking Big Show's shoes compared to Kevin's shoes ,maybe this can explain why later the difference between them looks slimer = Click Here

Canson said on 3/Jul/21
@Alex: I think the benchmark here is 6’6.5. 6’6.75 may be a lunchtime height with a guy his size being capable of losing more height than the average. Factor in his body weight too and we could be looking at a guy who wakes to 6’7.5 still. Peak height I still say he was a decent 6’7 at least if not right around 6’7.5
Edward Mullen said on 2/Jul/21
@Pierre To me personally Show has always had at least 2.5 inches on a 6’9.5 peak Nash. So I’m saying show was a full 7ft in his day. Click Here
Canson said on 30/Jun/21
@Edward Mullen: yea unfortunately that’s not cut and dry with some lol. But a 6’7.5 Kane in his prime is believable as is 6’7 since you also mentioned he wore lifts. But 6’5 today or under 6’6 is out of the question. But yea He’s still a very decent weak 6’7 guy or maybe 6’6.5. He mentioned “about 6’8” so that could signal a weak 6’8 peak or an early measurement of 6’8 or just under

@Edward what is the probability a young big Show was really 7"0'?.... Here is a more recent next to Shaq 7'0.25" Big Show without wrestling shoes = Click Here And the camera seems adavntageous for Big Show here....
Edward Mullen said on 29/Jun/21
So Kane looked 2 inches off a 7ft big show (In lifts in 1998). Let’s do some maths. That makes Kane 6’10 in lifts. Now how much lift-height would be comfortable for a 6’7+ dude who’s 300lb+ and doing all sorts of jumping and athletic things before it starts to feel like he’s on stilts. In my honest opinion : 2 inches. MAX. This would make the demon Kane 6’8 peak and I would not doubt this for a minute. If we’re saying 2.5 inches of lifts then I would have to think that would feel horrible in ring. But I could be wrong.

I also think Magic Jhonson retained his peak height, but Love here seems taller including Magics posture.

Btw i have Magic around same height as Love. Even if here he looks "short" and it was his prime.

Alex 6'0 said on 25/Jun/21
Kanes peak was easily over 6'7. Pushing 6'8 he could have looked
Canson said on 24/Jun/21
@Pierre: Magic has retained his height well. He isn’t under 6’7 seeing him next to Scottie Pippen. He’s probably even a hair over the mark based on how he stands. But the pictures that you selected once again are not good for comparisons. Magic has a bit of advantage and is going to naturally look taller given the distance from the camera. I believe Kane is shorter than Magic. The difference is somewhere around 1/2-1” but not as big as the picture suggests.

Magic (6’7-6’7.5 range) coworker of mine met him years back and said 6’7 or so
Kane 6’6.5 or .75 or in between
Alex 6'0 said on 23/Jun/21
6'6.5 for Kane is pretty fair. We go afternoon heights. At worst 6'6.25 and that's an extreme low. Peak definitely 6'7 plus
