@XPac99, Kane most definitely looks taller in that video as Isaac Yankem, and his boots were probably flatter than Taker's..
Xpac99 said on 14/Nov/18
Yes the people said kane because the most of the Times used big sole.. but for you is possible to see kane slightly taller ??
Click Here
Minute 1:03 staredown with about the same boot sole

@Christian: yep weak 6’7 is how he looks to me too
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
No way. Taker hasn’t been 6’4” since his teenage years probably. He’s still very close to if not a full 6’6”
Xpac99 said on 12/Nov/18
Rob in 2000s Who can slightly taller kane or taker ?? I know they were about the same height, but you never thought that one of them was slightly taller
Editor Rob
Well at times either could seem an edge, but I can see why more would say Kane could have the taller look at times.

Kane is 6' 7", Undetaker is as low as 6' 4" now.
Mr. Man said on 11/Nov/18
Kane is 6’ 8” and Undertaker is 6’ 9” without boots which add an extra 4 inches to both of them.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 10/Nov/18
I don't think he's much under 6'7 if at all. Probably 1/4" at most. With that being said he looks quite noticeably taller than Undertaker who could even be under 6'6 today.

You say rob 6’6.5 is too low but I bet if you stood a 2018 Kane next too a 1995 Sid Eudy there would be no difference between them.
ced said on 8/Nov/18
Rob, if Show is as low as 6'9.75, judging on that picture with Big Show, Kane, and Strowman, Kane looks to edge out Strowman (acoording to their shoulders next to Show) about .75 inches. Would you say that Kane still might be 6'7.25, Strowman at 6'6.5?
Editor Rob
It's just one photo, but Kane holds up decently around 6ft 7
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Nov/18
@ced

Kane is no 6'8". He looks a good 2.5"-3" shorter than Big Show, who I presume to be as low as 6'9.5" today. Click Here
JamesB172cm said on 6/Nov/18
Rob is 6ft6.75 possible now?
Editor Rob
It's arguable, some even would go to 6ft 6.5 for a guess...though I personally wouldn't go that low.
Mel said on 5/Nov/18
Still quite a solid 6’7 today.

@Brad Pac I said in an earlier comment that I think Kane and Strowman would measure quite close out of ring gear. With that being said, Kane tends to stand quite relaxed a lot of the time so if stood straight I don't see him being much under 6'7. As for Big Show he can look 6'9 range at times but if stood straight can probably measure right around 6'10.
Andre1983 said on 2/Nov/18
Brad PAC that's the original, Strowman taller than Kane and Show now 4 inches taller than Kane Click Here
ced said on 2/Nov/18
@Brad Pac - I think that proves that Kane is still around 6'8. Braun looks about 6'7 there, but surprisingly, Show doesn't look more than 6'10.
Brad Pac said on 1/Nov/18
There's a couple of pictures floating around of Kane, Braun and Big show in suits together, Braun is standing closer to the camera and looks like he's trying to look tall where as Kane looks more relaxed but him and Kane look VERY close. Here's the one i found where Braun is standing closer to where Show and Kane are. Also, Big Show looks like he's struggling to look taller Click Here
Canson said on 31/Oct/18
@Vegas and Christian: that also goes to show that guys like Taker and Andre the Giant were Mild inflations compared to the rest. Taker once claimed and was billed 6’10” when he was 6’7” peak whereas Andre’s height was all over the map yet only about a 4” inflation maybe 3”.

Brad Pac, I was referencing Dunne's college listing. Even if he is 6'8 he still looks close to 6 inches shorter than Omogbehin in that photo.

Here is Dunne and 7'2 listed Luc Longley, Omogbehin looks taller if we compare both photos httpsnyurl.com/yb4x8znr

ced if Taker measures up to Omogbehin like Martinez does WWE will bill him near 8 foot.... :) That's far more height than Khali has on Taker
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Oct/18
@Vegas


That pic isn't good for guessing heights because they're standing on a slope. Anyways, it's crazy how some promotions would go as far as listing wrestlers a foot taller than they really are. And I thought a 6 inch inflation was bad.

Here's a link to an interesting recent article I found online, mentioning all of Kane's real life stats from Knoxnews.com:

@Vegas, Punishment Martinez is 6'5. The WWE announcement listed him as 6'5 Luis Martinez. ROH had him listed as 6'7 which is a fair wrestling billing. I'd imagine in lifts or Kane size boots he'd be around 6'7, and WWE can promote him as 6'9. It'll be interesting to see if Martinez ever squares off with The Undertaker so we can get a good read on how tall Taker actually is.
Brad Pac said on 24/Oct/18
Vegas, Dunne is 6'8 at most (have a look at the picture on his twitter of him and 6'11 Danny Schayes)
and Daniel Vidot had listings in league between 6'2 and 6'4 but is around 6'2.5-6'3 which would probably make Jordan 7'0 if he's standing at his tallest there. Atm if i had to guess, I'd say that Jordan is 7'1 but obviously it's possible that he's taller or shorter
Also take note that Jordan is standing behind everybody on the ramp which goes downhill so he's on higher ground.

Christian, in wrestling the two most over-billed I can think of is Kurt Zehe at 8'2 when he stood I believe 7'1.5 and Stan Frazier billed at 7'7 when he was 6'8.

NCL guy on left is Daniel Vidot listed 192cm in rugby league and chap on right is Punishment Martinez listed 6'6/6'7 in Ring of Honor.

My thoughts on Kane for a while have been this. His wrestling boots prob give him minimal 2 additional inches in height and another two with the fake hair (excluding when hes bald). But another big advantage to Kane is... CAMERA ANGLE. If you see him sometimes standing next to both triple h and stephanie, you clearly see the camera angle is tilted in his favor. So in wrestling gear I'd say visually he might appear to be close to the 7 foot mark or at it, but, next to braun strowman who prob is isnt a full 6-7 himself, would give Kane around 6-6 1/2 - 6-6 3/4 today. Idk about prime however, but id guesstimate him at around 6-7.2 at his best.

Anyone know who the two guys are standing next to him in this pic? Click Here
Brad Pac said on 20/Oct/18
I don't think Jordan Omogbehin is a legit 7'3, i know Daniel Vidot who's on the left of him in the photos of the NXT Recruits and used to play rugby league and he's in the 6'2/6'3 range and Jordan looks 7'0 to 7'1 next to him as he only clears him by a full head

The most exaggerated fraud height in WWE has to go to Nathan Jones, he is nowhere near 6'11 he was probably 1.5inches taller than 6'6 Undertaker back in the day and probably no taller than Kane.
Kevein Nash was almost correctly billed in his 2nd run in WWE with 6'11, must of been in the 6'10 range then and at least 6'9 now.
-------------

???

If Jones was no taller than Kane wouldn't Kane be most exaggerated then given he was listed 7 foot!

Anyway Jones was listed 6'10 in WWE for most part. He was listed 6'10 in strongman competitions in the 1990s e.g announcer here says 'standing 6'10' at 11 seconds Click Here in mma in 97 he was listed 6'9 Click Here

Jones was a couple of inches taller than Sid Eudy and looked similar height next to Matt Morgan as Kevin Nash did..so I would assume Jones and Nash were very close.

Taker 6'6 and Kane over 6'8? I would say even the most hardcore Kane fans here don't see 2+ inches between those guys at peak.

@Brad Pac.. Hmm, interesting.. Although there's a few factors to consider.. Level of platform each individual was standing on, Kane is closer to the camera, etc.. With that said, in reality it would probably be about 5 inches between the 2. I think Trump is 6'2.75, this guy might be 6'3, so that would put Kane at 6'8 still?

Show was billed 7 foot when he started in wwe. Wasn't until the summer of 99 they began billing him 7'2. He is listed 7 foot on the Wrestlemania 15 DVD.
FMExTREME said on 16/Oct/18
Definitely agree Kane is taller than Strowman now and at his peak Kane was overall the larger man and 2 inches taller, Kane might have cleared 6'8 1/4 at his peak and right now probably slightly over 6'7.

@Phillip.. I do remember thinking that.. Back then, WCW had 2 giants in Nash and The Giant.. Nash was billed as 7'1, Giant was billed at 7'4.. WWF had Taker at 6'10 and a half, and since Kane was taller, he was billed at 7 feet (most likely Vince saw Kane as their version of a giant).. I remember thinking (even as a kid), when Big Show debuted for WWF, they put him down to 7'2.. Had they promoted Taker as 6'9, they could have promoted Kane as 6'11 and Show at 7'1 and I don't think anyone would have not seen Taker and Kane as the huge men that they were.. I think at that time, Taker was a smidge over 6'7, with Kane being around 6'8, and Big Show was 6'11. Show in his boots edged 7ft, Kane in his boots was 6'9.5-75, and Taker was around 6'8 in his boots.

Kyuss101 Before they hired big show... they wanted to make sure than everyone believed that Taker was 6ft10 and that Kane was 2 inches taller....Big show's hiring meant they were gonna have to bill him as 7ft2 to make sure that kane remained 7foot

BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 14/Oct/18
Judging a wrestlers height in their wrestling gear on tv isn't always easy due to factors such as posture, camera angles and mainly footwear. I reckon if both Kane and Strowman stood next to each other out of gear barefoot they would be quite close in height today. Of course peak Kane would easily be taller than Strowman.

@Tree

Taker is not 6'7" today. That means Triple H would have to be 6'2.5", and we all know that's too much for him.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/18
Kane only looks a bit taller than Strowman because of his thick wig that's attached to his mask, and possibly some boot advantage.
Jim mathers said on 10/Oct/18
It’s very difficult to judge the height different between kane and Strowman there. Many factors come in to play. Were they standing on the same line? Their posture? The camera distance plays a big part as well and can create an illusion, we’ve seen it many times before. If they were both standing next to each other, with straight posture, kane would still edge him out.
tree said on 9/Oct/18
I don't know what kind of surgeries taker had but he looked to get some height back, maybe 6ft7 now?
Brad Pac said on 9/Oct/18
That video isn't that great, there's points where both look taller than the other and this screenshot shows it. Especially in the reversed image.
Click Here

The camera is shaky and isn't held straight. Would be better if they were both standing still instead of walking. Also Strowman is wearing a hat. All we can say is that they are close in height, probably less than an inch seperate the pair
A Man said on 8/Oct/18
@ tree, I agree. Strowman clearly looks taller.

Some people just see what they want to see.

Kane has about close to an inch on Strowman there. I would guess Strowman at 6'6 currently, and Kane 6'6.75 now.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Sep/18
@Brad

6'7" could be his height in shoes.
Brad Pac said on 28/Sep/18
@Christian In my experience, most people just say "I'm 6'6" or "I'm 6'7" instead of saying I'm "6'6.5" because they aren't very pedantic about it. And Jillette has claimed 6'7 more often than not but I wouldn't be shocked if he was "only" 6'6 flat either
James Williams said on 28/Sep/18
As mentioned many times previously, the picture with mr Jacobs and Vince Vaughn is not a true representation of the difference in height. Vince is on his tippy toes in that picture which gives him an extra 3 inches (or thereabouts)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18

Jillete is most likely 6'6" max. He admitted to being 6'6", not 6'6.5".

Vince was still 6ft5 when he has that pic with Kane and he is closer.
Plus they are on grass i dont know how straight is the ground,and there maybe be a difference in fottwear.

We saw enough of Kane where shoes are visible and he lookes always 6ft6+
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 26/Sep/18
@Sotiris I think you're trying too hard with all the random pictures. With Kane and Orton, that's not a great one to judge as Orton probably has a bit of a footwear advantage because he's in wrestling boots. Kane easily has a few inches on Orton as other more reliable pictures are indicating. If you're going to provide photos at least make sure postures are the same as well as footwear otherwise it proves nothing. Even the camera angles aren't great in some of the pictures you provide.
James B 172cm said on 25/Sep/18

@Sotiris Here's Kane out of gear around 2013 being taller than 6'6.5 Penn Jillette which Penn admitted to on Twitter Click Here . If u look at that picture with Vince Vaughn , you will notice Vince "busting a gut" and looks like he was on his toes.

Wouldn't you agree, Kane? Click Here (Please ignore the height line that some unfortunate individual put there. Clearly, the fact that Orton has his head down is lost on some poor soul.)

The fact that Kane is still listed at 6'7" is really funny... Alas, I find myself chortling akin to Alastair Sim at the end of "Scrooge" (1951).

I still believe Swagger is more 6'5 than 6'4 , despite the listing
ced said on 13/Sep/18
@Canson. My morning height is 194cm. (Depending on what height translator yuo find on the net) some state that's 6'4 3/8, some state 6'3 9/10ths. I don't know if I go below that during the day but I suspect I do at least by .5 inches. Randy is 6'3.25 but no more than that. I didn't have any height advantage over Swagger as he was in gym shoes and so was I. And, we were absolutely dead even. I would have noticed if he was even .25 or .5 inches taller. I think his boots might give him an inch to his over all height, making him around 6'5 in them, so they add the 2 wrestling inches to him and he's 6'7. Kane definitely had 3 inches on me, at the very least, not sure about 4, but definitely 3.
Vegas' said on 13/Sep/18
Well I thought Swagger was taller than 6'4 flat and I met him at 12-1am after a show. If he was 6'4 then there is no way Kane was 6'8+ out of gear

That's 2010 with Bret Hart which I assume was earlier in day than i met him Click Here
Canson said on 11/Sep/18
@Ced: so you’re actually under 6’4 in reality if you come down to 6’3.75. That’s odd you only lose .5”. Most of us this size lose 3/4”. Christian and I are both an inch apart and come down to 6’4.25 and 6’5.25 at lows respectively. I wake up 6’5 and he wakes up 6’6”. That makes sense for Swagger that he’s only 6’4” as you would’ve noticed a difference if he were 6’4.5 or .25 unless you had a footwear advantage. I suspected that Orton wasn’t as tall as advertised. I figured 6’3.5-.75 but if you’re 6’3.75 at a low he’s even less than I thought
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Vegas: makes sense if Swagger is 6’4 Kane is likely close to 6’7” maybe a hair below
ced said on 10/Sep/18
@Canson: It could be. I myself wake up around 6'4.25, and go down to about 6'3.75 during the day. I stood next to Randy Orton, and had about .5 inches on him. Swagger seemed he was dead even with me. Kane definitely had about 3 maybe 4 inches on me. Sheamus was another one I was surprised I was taller than as he's promoted as being 6'6, but he is at most, 6'2.5. Luke Harper I believe is a legit strong 6'5, Erik Rowan a strong 6'6.
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Ced: it’s possible he’s 6’4.25 maybe because 1/4” wouldn’t be seen between you. But that puts into perspective how tall a legit 6’4 really is because a lot of people guess swagger 6’4.5. I know because I am also 6’4. 6’4.25-.3 at a low and 6’5-6’5 1/8 out of bed
Vegas' said on 8/Sep/18
Having met Kane and Swagger in person out of gear I doubt there was much more than 2.5 inches between them, 3 max. I first met Kane in March 2004.

Kanes AE footwear had to give at least 2 inches over barefoot Click Here You can't really estimate how tall either looks at Wrestlemania 14 due to poor camera angles and the photo that plays the rounds Kane is closer to camera.
ced said on 6/Sep/18
@Christian,

Swagger is a definite 6'4. He is not taller than that, I am 6'4 on the dot, Swagger and I were the same height. Big Show could possibly slouch down to 6'9.5. But as I said, I think Show wakes up about 6'10.5, and goes down to about 6'9.75 by evening (Today). In his prime, I see Show at a good 6'11. Maybe even 6'11.5. but not 7 feet. He was over 7 foot in his boots. That would out Kane at around 6'8.25 for his prime - and about 6'9.5-6'9.75 in his boots. (If Taker was 6'7 in his prime, with boots on he'd be around 6'8 not quite 6'8, but right around there), their WM14 staredown, Kane had about 2 inches on him.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Sep/18
@ced

6'4" Swagger would put Big Show at around 6'9.5" since there seemed about a 5.5" difference between them.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 25/Aug/18
@Philip McMullin Yeah I also noticed Show slouched a lot so he didn't always look his height but peak definitely close to 7ft if not on the mark. I've only seen a clip of that. It's funny he says that because those height ranges would cover Kane both barefoot and in boots during his career. It's likely Henry was referring more to his height in boots as that's what most athletes tend to do.
ced said on 23/Aug/18
Big Show has dramatically lost a lot of his height since his prime ('95-00). But, I was next to Big Show as recently as 2014, and I myself am 6'4. Big Show had at least 6 inches on me. Today I could see him waking up around 6'10.25, down to about 6'9.75 by evening. I was also next to Jack Swagger in 2014, and he and I are the exact same height. Swagger is not 6'5 or 6'6 by any means. Kane is 6'7 today, probably drops down to 6'6.5 by end of day. But his peak height was definitely 6'8-6'8.25. It HAD to be. You compare "medium monster" types like Test, Bradshaw, Wrath, Crush to Giant Monsters like Nash, Kane, Big Show, Kane had to have been 6'8 to be even considered the Fake Diesel gimmick back in '96 after Nash left.

BURN IT DOWWWWWN!i do agree that show no longer looks 7 feet tall like he used to be... when show debuted he looked like his billed height... dude was HUGE....Still is but no where near as big as he was! Did you watch Table for 3 with Kane, Show and Mark Henry? Henry put kanes height in a 3 inch range of 6ft7 to 10
Chris Tyrone's said on 22/Aug/18
Sotiris Gravas — Look where Jared’s lips are to Miz’s head. Then look where Kane’s lips are to Miz’s head. So if you compare them you’ll notice there is around 3 odd inches, which does then put Kane at around 6’7.
JeffBiz said on 21/Aug/18
@Soritis Miz is over 6ft tall and the top of his hair is at the bottom of Kane's nose which is a 7 inch difference. Which means Kane is 6Ft 7 in that picture.
I've also seen u claim Big Show is 6'8, please check out the footage of him barefoot with Akebono who is 6ft7.5-6ft 8 and u will see there was 4 inches difference.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 20/Aug/18
@Philip McMullin People overanalyse height too much using pictures but even they aren't always accurate indicators for judging height as there are lots of factors involved with the main being camera angles. 6'8.5 is too low for Big show. 6'9 range I can argue but due to his excessive weight he can look shorter (he's lost weight now though).

BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 17/Aug/18
@Philip McMullin It's possible he was 6'7 1/2 and rounded up or he may have claimed a shoe height. Also if he did measure 6'7 1/2 at his lowest he would have been 6'8 early in the day so maybe he went by that measurement.
Philip McMullin said on 16/Aug/18
I still to this day believe that kane is still 6ft8. Kane STILL claims 6ft8 and he doesnt seem the type to lie!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Aug/18
@BURN

Agreed. I'd say no less than 6'7" at his peak. Today I can see him at 6'5.5"-6'6" max.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 14/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" I can definitely see him having lost at least an inch if not more. There's only a 1/2 inch difference on here between his peak and current which to me seems unlikely with the career he's had.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Aug/18
Rand is about 5'6.5", though he sometimes wears boots so that could be slightly off, though Kane doesn't look a foot taller. With that said, I'd caution against estimating based on one photo with two people not even close in height.

@Sotiris Gravas: I wouldn't say I believe you might be a troll. I know you are one. Leave your Russian conspiracy theories and war-mongering out of this HEIGHT forum. Rand has consistently supported peace and diplomacy. The fact this enrages you so much you can't help but bring it up on an unrelated topic and try to spin it as a bad thing says more about you. People like you know absolutely nothing about Russia and it's an embarrassment to hear you attempt to speak on the topic.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Aug/18
@BURN

Kane looks at the very most 6'6" in that pic but 6'5.5" is very possible as well, and that matches up with how he looked with Rand Paul.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 10/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" That's the pic I'm referring to. 6'6 is the lowest I'd argue for Kane today just don't see him being 6'5 range. Outside of WWE I've not actually paid attention to his height so from that I've seen now he's definitely dipped below 6'7.
viper said on 10/Aug/18
Sotiris, years ago there was a Mexican mentors wrestling height list posted here circa 1996. It had many heights that seemed to be accurate.

It had Michaels at 178cm. 5-10
Sotiris Gravas said on 10/Aug/18
@Vegas' Sorry, I just wanted to point out one more thing. In the photo of Flair/Shawn Michaels/6'4.75 Ben Roethlisberger (interesting surname)... Michaels (currently no more than 5'9", w/ a peak barefoot height of 5'10"--that even he admitted to on Twitter back in 2012) is wearing his custom-made cowboy boots and Flair seemingly has about the same eyeline w/ "THK"... which leaves me wondering what Flair's footwear was in this pic... Food for thought. (Why Rob still lists THK w/ a peak height of 5'11.25" and a current height of 5'10.5" is beyond me, given that everyone, Triple H, The Rock, Bruce Prichard, etc., call him out as having been 5-foot-10 barefoot in his prime. When I stood next to him--both of us in sneakers--in what was probably 1997, all I remember thinking was, "This guy is small...")
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/18
@BURN

There's also a pic with 5'9" Ric Flair where Kane doesn't look more than 6'6" Click Here
Nick Makris said on 9/Aug/18
In the pictures Vegas posted, Flair looks only 6 inches shorter than Ben Roethlisberger (his head is up to the middle of Ben's nose) and 8 or 8.5 inches shorter than Kane (top of his head is under Kane's mouth)
Sotiris Gravas said on 9/Aug/18
@Vegas" I saw the pic of Flair next to Kane... Just a little reminder (pun intended) that Flair's current height is a weak 5'8" and Kane has a footwear advantage in this pic. The top of a 5'8" guy's head should reach a 6'6" man's chin. Even w/ perfect military posture, Kane is around 6'5.5" here. Just sayin'. In the other pic w/ 6'4.75" Ben, Flair is CLOSER to the camera which makes him look bigger (... a trick we ALWAYS see Big Show taking advantage of, and we can't see footwear).
Editor Rob
Flair at under 5ft 9 would be hard to stomach.

As I mentioned on his thread this blogger With FLair is actually over 5ft 9 in person, I saw him at LFCC, he was comfortably taller than 5ft 9 flat.
Sotiris Gravas said on 9/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" Thank you! You're a godsend (no pun intended). Finally, someone believes me!!! HALLELUJAH! I think I'm gonna faint... Thanks for backing me up on this, dude. Wow. Finally. Am I dreaming...? I'm only 6'7" daytime height and in a pic of me next to my 5'5.5" mom (which I recently reposted on Twitter) you can see a HUGE difference in height relative to what we see with Kane and Rand Paul. Thanks again, Christian. Wow. :)
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 9/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" But then look at the pictures Vegas attached. Compare the pics between the two with Ric Flair and there's no way he's 6'5. As for Rand Paul there's a chance he may not be 5'6 either so I guess everything has to be taken into consideration.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/18
@BURN

Kane was hunching down a bit but the difference still doesn't look more than 11"-11.5" Click Here Kane looks about 6'5.5" if we assume Rand Paul's 5'6.25" as listed, so Sotiris isn't wrong. This furthers my suspicions whether or not he wore lifts in the ring, since he looked taller than a 6'6"-6'7" Strowman.
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 9/Aug/18
@Sotiris Gravas In the pic I've seen of the two Kane is hunching over and not standing at his tallest (he generally doesn't have the best posture now anyway). When you're that much taller than somebody it's natural to hunch over and stand poorly. Standing at his tallest he wouldn't measure that low.

Yeah, NO WAY is he even more than 6-foot-5 now. Let me guess... NO ONE believes me. Check out the online pic of Kane (aka Glenn Thomas Jacobs) next to 5-foot-6 (MAX!) Rand Paul (who likes hand-delivering secret letters to Putin at the behest of Trump; yeah, that guy.) Overlook the belief that I might be some kind of "troll" and Google this pic. No way in hell this guy was ever 6-foot-7.5 peak height. Laughable!
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 6/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" I don't know when that quote is from but if it's from when he was at his peak height then that's honest. He said 'about 6'8' hinting he's around the mark which tbf is pretty much honest keeping in mind he'd probably measure 6'8 early in the day so it's just rounded. Also we don't know for certain he wasn't the full 6'8 peak either.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Aug/18
@viper

Yeah, 6'8" isn't the most honest claim but at least Kane didn't inflate it to the degree like Undertaker did when he claimed 6'10".

ced said on 23/Jul/18
Rob, I think there's enough evidence that supports that Kane was 6'8.25 at his peak.. If Sid was 6'6.75 as you state, in the battle royal I posted, Kane looks way more than 1 inch taller when they walk by each other.. And Kane with no lifts as Isaac Yankem was taller than Taker by .5-.75 of an inch. Why no upgrade for his peak height?
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 23/Jul/18
@Xpac99 Yeah 1/2 inch height loss does seem very little for Kane considering his age and the career he's had. It's highly possible he was 6'8 peak and 6'7 today so he could have lost an inch which makes sense. Either that or he's below 6'7 today which I can't see being the case. At the end of the day we're all estimating including Rob so the numbers can be slightly off.
Xpac99 said on 21/Jul/18
@BURN IT DOWWWWWN!
I agree with you... i don’t understand beacuse rob billed peak height at 6ft 7 1/2 and today bill kane 6 ft 7. It’s obviously over 50 years old the people lost over 1/2 inch (1,2 cm) especially who does fight sports . In my opinion kane peak 6ft 8 sound right
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 19/Jul/18
@Xpac99 Yeah Kane is definitely a bit taller as evident quite a few times. However I'm pretty sure Strowman wore thicker boots when he was in the Wyatt family, as opposed to now with the brown boots which seem to be a bit flatter. I think they're making Braun stand more upright in that image and Kane a bit looser to make Braun look taller (they've done it before with Kane and imposter Kane aka Luke Gallows). Also keep in mind Braun was bigger then compared to 2016 as he lost weight and looked leaner so that could explain what you mean.
Xpac99 said on 19/Jul/18
@BURN IT DOWWWWWN!
Kane is taller than strowman, only in this segment seems no taller . The boots are the same that strowman uses in another staredown and kane looks taller in everyone... in my opinion in that segment the camera angle looks strowman taller because the face of strowman looks extra size compared to that of kane but in reality and in every staredown the size of the face is similar...because of this strowman looks taller
cade said on 18/Jul/18
Your right ced
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 18/Jul/18
@Xpac99 I'm pretty sure Strowman had thicker boots back then either that or they made him stand better. If they had a staredown now Strowman wouldn't look taller like in that image (he actually looked shorter not long ago).
ced said on 18/Jul/18
Guys, how can Kane be 6'7.25 or 6'7.5 peak if there is living proof that he was taller than Sid by 1.5 inches? Let's just say Sid was 6'6.75 peak as I believe this site states, add another 1.5 inches to that and you have a peak Kane of 6'8.25

Click Here
In your opinion at this particolar moment braun looks taller ? but i don’t think because in another staredown at the same period kane looks taller with the same footware or the camera involved and looks strowman taller... because kane has his shoulders higher in this pic but the face of braun seems over size compared to that of kane...
Editor Rob
In that staredown again they looked quite close, sometimes one can look to have an edge, but it can be hard to tell exactly - the wrestling ring itself might not be uniformly flat.

@Jock, I agree maybe it's not the best comparison.. If you look at some of the episodes of Nitro, I don't know if it was the fact that maybe Big Show was at his real peak there, and therefor Nash looked 3 inches under, and when he got to the WWF in 99, his staredowns with Kane - he had about 2 inches on Kane.. Let's just say Kane was 6'8 in 99, with lifts on, he's 6'10. Nash was 6'9 so maybe that explains it..

Slim25 said on 8/Jun/18
It’s been on record that Bruce Prichard said taker wore lifts. That explains why he was dead even with sid once he was undertaker. In way younger years, sid was at least 1” taller in that stare down. Taker had internal lifts just like most wrestlers (Orton) (hhh) so when mentioning Kane’s “Munster Boot Lifts” as Mr McMahon would say, don’t forget taker had lifts too.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 7/Jun/18
@ced

I agree that both Kane and Undertaker were taller than Sid, but Sid wasn't as tall as 6'7.5" More like 6'6.5" like how he's listed here. I can see Kane at 6'7.25" and Undertaker 6'7" at their peaks.
ced said on 6/Jun/18
@Moheez, I'm not sure about 0.5 inches.. The weird thing with Sid and Taker was that at times, Sid appeared taller in their younger years, at other times Taker appeared taller in the WWF. If there was ANY difference between Sid and Taker, it could only be about 1/4 of an inch. Between Kane and Taker, in the SMW days, Kane was taller than Taker in their staredown by 1/2 an inch. Same thing when he was Yankem.

I could be wrong, but Kane (in his lifts) has always given me an impression that he is as tall as Nash in them. I always go to WrestleMania 12 when Taker faced Diesel. Diesel had him by about 1.5 inches. Then go to WrestleMania 14, Kane had Taker by at least 2 inches. Maybe even 2.5. (Granted - in his lifts).

That would explain why Kane stacked closer to Big Show's height than Nash did in staredowns. Big Show in his prime was 6'11. In his boots - 7 ft. Nash was 6'9, and maybe in his boots 6'9.25. If Kane was 6'8, with his 2 inch lifts he was 6'10.

ced said on 2/Jun/18
@Christian, do you agree that Undertaker was taller than Sid? By about .25 inches. Not much. Kane (as Yankem on several staredowns is taller than Taker by .5 inches).

Now take a look at Sid Vs Kevin Nash from WCW. Nash had about an an 1.5 inches on Sid meaning Nash could only have .75 inches on Kane.

Sid- 6’7.5
Undertaker- 6’7.75
Kane- 6’8-6’8.25
Nash-6’9
Paddy said on 2/Jun/18
I am going to be frank with you all. Glenn is 6'7" on the dot. Undertaker is 6'6" on the dot, Kevin Nash is 6'8" on the dot and Big Show is 6'10" on the dot. Is it really that hard to work those numbers out? All these men are literally giants.
Omid said on 31/May/18
@Christian, no one claimed Kane was as big as or even nearly as big as Bigshow, I even don’t claim that he is as tall as say Kevin Nash either but I know one thing almost for sure, if Big Show was 7’0 peak, Kane cannot be shorter than 6’8, and given that Kane’s boots, even his big ones had fairly big obvious platforms on them, it would be unlikely that he had even more in his shoes as you just can’t wrestle properly in heels that big let alone jump of the top rope which is what Kane used to do a lot in his prime.

That doesn't prove that Kane wasn't wearing lifts though. Lifts are usually difficult to spot, especially anything less than about 1.5" types. All I know is that Kane is and was nowhere near Big Show's height.

Ample evidence has been provided to prove that for the most part Kane’s boots have been practically identical to other big men (since around 2000), in particular the Bigshow.

Click Here Here, a prime big show comes out in shoes with no lift, and we briefly see kane with his MAX 2” lift boots, is the same height if not taller than Show. Kane wasn’t standing straight at all while Show was in the ring.
ced said on 26/May/18
You’ve seen Kane with other wrestlers who were 6’6 range.

Test (6’6) - thought he was only 6’5, but had to have been more as I am 6’4 and i’ve met Test while he was still alive. Definitely 6’6.

Albert - Prime: 6’6.5. Kane had at least 3 inches on him in matches.

Harris Brothers: Each 6’7. Legit 6’7 for both men. Numerous times they were in the ring with Kane and he covered them by 2.75-3 inches. (Kane being 6’8 + 2 inch lifts).

Take a look at staredowns between Undertaker and Diesel at WM12, then take a look at WM14 with Undertaker and Kane. Kane was the same height as Nash in his boots. Without the boots, Nash maybe had 1 inch on Kane.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 26/May/18
@Omid

Gallows wore boots too but they didn't have an odd shape like Kane's. And Kane's a known lift wearer, he's been wearing them since the 90's. I think he stopped in recent years though.
And I already said that I don't think Big Show was ever 7'0". More like 6'11"-6'11.5" peak and today 6'10.25" at most, maybe 6'10" flat (looked easily 2" shorter than Shaq)
Omid said on 25/May/18
And we’re back At the Kane’s lifts argument again, Gallows wears boots too.

So everybody in WWE is an inch shorter according to you right? You cannot have a 7’0 feet Bigshow and an under 6’8 Kane as at his best he had 4 on Kane.
If Kane is not 6’8 then Show’s not 7’0 and if Show was under 7’0, everyone from Kevin Nash to Jericho would be shorter.
Slim25 said on 24/May/18
Uhhhh Gallows had huge boots on.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 22/May/18

Just because Shaq measured 7'0.88" doesn't mean he's that tall at his low. Most basketball players are measured early in the day, and Shaq doesn't look as tall as 7'1" when standing next to people. He looks 7'0.25" at best like how Rob lists him.

@ced

While Kane did look 3 inches taller than Gallows, you can tell that Kane was wearing lifts as his boots looked very thick and clunky. Click Here He's not 6'8" barefoot.
ced said on 21/May/18
The mere fact that Kane was hunching down and Gallows who is 6'5 (6'6 in boots) looked 3 inches under Kane there (while Kane was hunching to try and make Gallows taller) proves that Kane was almost 6'10 in his monster boots. Without them - 6'8
Omid said on 19/May/18
Dude no one says 7’0.88....they just say 7’1.

I suppose if people were to be THAT accurate and borderline OCD you wouldn’t have so many people claiming 5’9 or 6’0 or etc which would be silly if you ask me.

It takes quite a lot of effort for some to say hey I’m 7’0.88 instead of just saying 7’1.....after all the difference between 1 inch and 0.88 of an inch is 2 millimeters.

@Omid

Shaq's not 7'1", as he was measured 7'0.63" during the draft and it was likely an early measurement at that. Click Here Also according to DraftExpress, he was measured 7'0" without shoes in 1992.
Omid said on 16/May/18
@Christian

I believe Nash is the taller man, I never argued Kane looked taller in front of Bigshow than Nash did so there’s that.

As for peak Bigshow, Given his several encounters with Shaq during the years (who’s 7’1) by the way, I believe his 7’0 foot billing...if he only looked maybe 2 inches shorter than Shaq in 2008, 2009, he definitely would have been a 7 footer a decade before.

I can’t find the 6’7 billing anywhere...this is literally the only place that I’ve even heard it.

@Slim, 6’7 is huge, most folks tend to be surprised how big these wrestlers are when they actually get to see them from a close proximity.
ced said on 16/May/18
@Christian -

Kane was never billed as 6'7 as Yankem.. He was billed as 6'9 as Yankem. Watch Isaac Yankem Vs Undertaker, when Yankem is outside of the ring, they're billing him as 6'9, then he gets in the ring, and dwarfs the Undertaker in a staredown, and you could tell that Vince (on commentary) and the other announcers were surprised that he was actually taller than Taker.

Unfortunately, there is no pic with Nash and Kane side by side, there was only 2 matches that they had together, one as Yankem Vs Diesel, and the other was a 6 man tag (Hogan, Kane, Rock) Vs The Outsiders and X-Pac, but unfortunately they never have a staredown in the 6 man match. The closest they get is Kane gIving the boot to Nash.

After all, Kane WAS the fake Diesel.. I don't think Vince would have put him in that role if him and Nash weren't identical in size, especially since WCW had Nash, and the new Diesel needed to be just as impressive.
Lyle1 said on 16/May/18
Listen to the table for 3 'Giants' with Mark Henry, Big Show and Kane, Henry refers to kane as being 6'7 or 6'10.

I think Henry kinda F'ed up by saying 6'7 then quickly added the 6'10. So I still believe nothing less than 6'7 today
bam said on 15/May/18
Click Here this would make him maybe same height as kane. his standing next to the undertaker
Slim said on 15/May/18
@Martin 6’2” post the vid. Kane said he was “6’8 6’9” legit with long hair down my back”
Omid said on 15/May/18
You cannot argue a 7 feet show and a 6’6 Kane Martin....again at no point in either man’s career has there been more than 4 inches of difference between them, if peak Kane would’ve been 6’6, Peak show would’ve been 6’10 not 7’0.

This is Show in front of Show at 2009.

Click Here

Shaq is 7’1 and at that point Show would have been 6’11, can you honestly observe more than 3 cms or 1.25 inches between them? And I’m not convinced Show I standing as tall as he could.

This is peak Bigshow in front of peak Kane (who’s wearing equal footwear to show at that point).

Click Here

In 09 Show looked no more than 3 cms shorter than Shaq who’s 216cm, factoring in his bigger boots that would be roughly 4 cms shorter...making him at least 212cms or 6’11.5 at 09.

At 01, Show would’ve been a 7 footer...there hasn’t, isn’t and never will be more than 4 inches of difference between Show and Kane 7’0 - 0’4 = 6’8.
MIR said on 15/May/18
Kane was much more than 5 inches taller than the Rock in 2002, it was close to 7 inches and again, It's not like the Rock was barefoot. Click Here
I'm confident Kane hit 6'8 at his tallest and and now would be 6'7 or slightly under like 6'6.75
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 14/May/18
@Omid

Just because Kane may have looked taller next to Show than Nash did, doesn't automatically mean Kane's taller than Nash. Remember, Rob met Nash in 2013 and estimated him at 6'9". He's hunching down in the pic but if stood straight he looks about 6'8.5" so that's the lowest I'd put him. And now look at Kane who claimed he's 6'8" and was billed 6'7" when he was known as Yankem. Btw, I don't think Show was ever a legit 7'0".

@Slim

I can't find a pic of Kane and Nash standing together unfortunately, but common sense should tell you that Nash is taller just by him meeting Rob and looking 6'8.5" in the pic and that Kane himself claimed 6'8" and was billed 6'7" when he was known as Yankem, and WWE isn't gonna underbill a wrestler.
Slim said on 14/May/18
I agree @Omid. On another note. IF Kane is 6’7 now. People must not realize just how huge 6 foot and 7 inches is.
Vegas said on 14/May/18
Nash was noticeably taller than Rodman in WCW like towards the end of this clip Click Here
Martin 6'2 said on 13/May/18
I was watching a clip from the Attitude era earlier, it was Kane, and The Rock w/ Mr McMahon and Shane.
Rock in his smart shoes that gave him half an inch, and Kane in his 2' boots at the time.
The Rock was standing at about 6'3" and I hate to admit this being a huge Kane fan, but Kane was clearly about 5' taller, putting him at 6'8" in those boots, and 6'6" barefoot.
So I think when Kane said he was 6'8" he was telling a half truth, he was talking about in his original boots.
Slim said on 12/May/18
Prove to me in photo evidence where Nash is much taller than Kane. Idc if he LOOKED taller, still doesn’t eliminate the fact that kane always looked taller than Nash did when staring down big show.
Omid said on 12/May/18
@Christian

At no point in either man’s career has been more than 4 inches of difference between them, If peak Show was 7’0....Kane could not have been less than 6’8.

As for today, Show has seemingly lost quite a bit more than Kane in height, their difference today is more in the realms of 3.5 than 4 and a 6’10.5 Bigshow today means Kane cannot be any lower than 6’7 today...with a fraction as margin of error.

Now if you wanna downgrade peak show, pull everyone else down with him too.
Slim said on 11/May/18
You’re implying kane typically exaggerated his height? Wrong. He never has or did. Nash has let ppl bill him to 7’1”. While he was the same height as ADMITTED 6’7 Tyler mane and Dennis Rodman. Try again.
james garcia said on 11/May/18
the undertaker is 6'7'' and kane is 6'8'' like baron corbin and braun strowman
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 11/May/18
@Ced

Kane admitted to being 6'8" (which is still high). He's just not as tall as Nash, no matter how you want to put it.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 10/May/18
@Slim

First off, JBL was never 6'6". He was about 6'5" peak and 6'4.5" today. As for Nash and Kane, Nash was easily 6'9" peak, while Kane admitted to being 6'8". If a wrestler (who typically exaggerates their height) claims to be 6'8", then more than likely he's not going to be any taller than that.
Ced said on 10/May/18

Ced said on 10/May/18
I wasn't talking about Kane where he wore lifts.. There's a backstage segment with Goldust, Booker T, and Kane in 2003 (no big lifts), and Goldust was wearing a plastic Kane Mask when Kane pulled it off. Take a look at that segment then taken a look at a backstage segment with Nash and Goldust the year before. Nash comes across as taller because Kane has a tiny head for his size, but they were pretty much the same.
Slim said on 9/May/18
Um no @Christian. That segament with show Nash and Goldust, that same night/year Kane was half masked and had flats on. He’s the same height as Nash if not taller. The backstage segment between Kane Goldust booker t and jbl, kane towered everyone including 6’6 jbl. Kane was half masked and had his flats on. 2003
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/May/18
@Caden

That's because Kane wore massive lifts back in the day. Barefoot he's nowhere near as tall as Nash.
Slim said on 8/May/18
Agreed @Caden. I think Nash just looks like he’s taller. They’ve wrestled each other before under different gimmicks and couldn’t tell a difference between them. Nash had his huge main up top too. I’ve seen people across the room that I thought were a good bit taller than me only to get up close and I end up being taller actually.
Caden said on 7/May/18
For everyone that says that Kane and Nash weren’t the same height, there is a backstage segment in which Goldust appears with Big Show and Nash, and Goldust goes face to face, Nash had the same exact height advantage over Goldust that Kane did.
mrtguy said on 6/May/18
Rob, Kane has a really tiny head for his height it looks 2 inches shorter than Big Show's and that's being a bit generous
Editor Rob
I'd never have thought it was that much smaller...
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 5/May/18
@Omid

I don't agree with you that Kane was ever 6'8", let alone today. And Big Show's not 7'0" today, more like 6'10" or at best 6'10.25"
Martin 6'2 said on 5/May/18
Click Here both wearing thick soles here, and why not, I do the same and can manage 6'3" lol
Omid said on 3/May/18
Look at the boots for comparision.

Click Here

Click Here

Kane’s boots are nothing special in anyway, at least haven’t been since 2000, between him and Big Show for example you only see 4 inches of difference at absolute best, and most people here agree that their difference is more like 3.5 than 4 anyway.

7 foot Bigshow = 6’8 Kane...andthat’s worst case scenario for Kane.
Slim said on 2/May/18
Click Here Show in ring boots. Kane in dress shoes. Yet another piece of evidence showing Kane was taller than anyone else against show. He’s not even in his prime anymore either.
Martin 6'2 said on 2/May/18
Slim, really? I didn't know that, so if Randy is 6'4" bare foot, are you saying he's like 6'5.5" in the ring?
Omid, you're absolutely right, I didn't really think about that at the time, and I know Kane doesn't wear those boots anymore, but to me they still look a good 1.5, today. Very tricky to tell.
Bare in mind the match I saw was going back to about 2003, so don't know if Randy wore lifts then.
I do love this debate though lol
Slim said on 1/May/18
Martin 6’2 Randy Orton is 6’4 barefoot. He is a huge internal lift wearer. Look close at his boots. I’ve seen him twist his ankle in several matches.
MIR said on 30/Apr/18
If Kane's boots gave him 2 inches, that would mean he has a 1 inch advantage, not 2 because the others are wearing wrestling boots too. Some people act like all other wrestlers other then Kane wrestle barefoot? The average wrestling boots give u an inch
Omid said on 30/Apr/18
@Martin there are two major issues with you conclusion:

A)we all here know that Kane hasn’t worn those monster boots ever since early 2000, since then he has been wearning practically the same type of footwear as other bigmen like Big show which is 1.5 at best.
B)You assume everybody else wrestles barefeet and you compare them with a 98 boot Kane, Randy Orton wears boots too.
Philip McMullin said on 30/Apr/18

Martin 6'2 said on 29/Apr/18
I've just watched a match between Kane and Randy Orton, and assuming Orton is about 6'4" Kane had about 4' on him, making Kane 6'8" in his boots, making him 6'6" bare foot.
Every peice of evidence I look at, I end up back at the same answer, 6'6" bare foot, 6'8" in boots.
Philip McMullin said on 29/Apr/18

Ummmmm the photo of kane show and shaq has kane further away from the camera than both men! I’ve seen the entire match. Another poor attempt to downgrade kane.
Slim said on 29/Apr/18
What people need to understand about kanes boots is they were basically cowboy boot sized heels. They look so big bc they are “wedge” style with no gap after the heel. Some work boots have that style. As for the Vince Vaughn photo, in Vinces original post, he said he was on his tip toes. It looks like it bc look at his shoulders and expression. I have seen quite a few times where kane had to duck under doorways slightly out of ring gear and in normal shoes. So no he’s not under 6’6.5.
Ced said on 29/Apr/18
@ Heightcrazy, while I agree that today Kane is barely about 6'7, I can't agree with you on his height in his prime. Look at the backstage video of him with Hogan and Rock, Hogan at that time was about 6'4.5, Kane had him by about 5 inches. If Hogan in his boots was 6'5, Kane in his monster boots had to be about 6'10. Meaning without them, he was 6'8.
A Man said on 29/Apr/18
@ Ced, Kane would be in ring boots in that pic with Shaq so therefore it's completely inadmissible, as are all pictures of any wrestlers in ring gear because the boots inflate their heights to such a ridiculous degree.
Martin 6'2 said on 28/Apr/18
Click Here I'm hoping this pic will come out okay on here, it's a pause frame of Kane's wrestling boot, must be a good 2' and assuming the Rock is about 6'2"/6'3" seeing Kane stand next to him, Kane had about 5' on him, so I think when Kane said he was 6'8" he was talking about with his boots on, without he must be 6'6" judging by a pic I've seen of him with the 6'5" Vince Vaughn.
Philip McMullin said on 28/Apr/18
@HeightcrazyRed6ft you love downgrading Kane as low as possible dont you!!! I dont think you can accept that Kane is still potentially 6ft8! Show aint under 6'10, taker is is probably still 6ft7, but kane is deffo OVER 6ft7

Nash was 6´10" in standard soled wrestlingboots
Kane was 6´9.5" in his 2.25"-2.5" munsters
Big Show was 6´11.5" in standard soles from KOTR1999

Martin 6'2 said on 19/Apr/18
Just curious here, and this is still height related, just wondered if anybody has heard about stretching to get taller, and if anybody has proof or evidence of this?
If so, could they not use this in wrestling, at least to help with their posture, this would increase their heights by at least an inch surely?
Slim said on 18/Apr/18
I agree @Ced. They usually said kane was 6’10.5 on commentary. Lowest he’s ever been commented was 6’8 by booker T.
Ced said on 17/Apr/18
I don't know how to post pictures here, but, on an episode of RAW in 2002, Kane squared up against Big Show again and Big Show was taller by 1.75-2 inches. Matter of fact, I've never seen Nash or Undertaker square up to Show the way that Kane did in that staredown.

Let's take Logic here, if Kane was only 6'7 at HeightCrazy's estimated peak, if you put the 2 inch lifts on Kane, that means he would have been about 6'9 in them.

Well Show at that point was a legit 6'11, and he wore thick boots. Meaning he was probably around 7'0.5 in them. Show did not look 3+ inches taller than Kane in the staredown, only 2 inches MAX. So Kane had to have been at least 6'8 without his boots. Kane in his boots was 6'10, while Nash was 6'9.
