@Rob This is me, a pic taken earlier this year (around 6'7", 275 lbs) next to my mom (5'5.5", 200 lbs) as compared to Big Show and Kelly Kelly (5'4, 5'8" in big heels at the top of this page)... Click Here Remind me again how Show is supposed to be a whopping 6'10.5". Yeah, NO WAY. Show is 6'8.5, MAX.

This is my brother (around 6'4", 230 lbs) next to a wax statue of 6'2" Morgan: FreemaClick Here

This is me (around 6'7", 305 lbs from about 5/6 years ago) next to my brother as a height confirmation:
Click Here

That's me (around 275 lbs) next to a door that I ALWAYS(!!!) thought was a standard 6'8", only to recently learn that it's, in fact, 6'9", w/ an additional 0.25" added for the door threshold plate:
Click Here

Another pic (280 lbs) next to a 6'9" door (barefoot, not standing at attention)... Click Here

And one more from back when I weighed 305 lbs (looking like a defensive lineman who'll have a heart attack when wolfing down his next cheeseburger) next to my 5'9.25", 200 lbs dad and 5'5.75", 200 lbs mom. Click Here How tall do I look next to a supposed 6'10.5" Big Show...? If you don't want to post this 'cause I'm not a celebrity, I totally understand, but feel free to tell ppl on this forum that I'm not a troll (LOL) who lies about his height. I'm more ogre, i.e., Shrek.

Kaman and Dirk look very close in height Click Here

Gasol looked at least 1.5 inches than Bosh in an interview that has disappeared from YouTube. Just a screenshot remains Click Here

If Howard is 6'10 then Russell can't really be 6'8 Click Here

Shiw looked 4 inches taller than Battier and photo was taken from low angle
RP said on 13/Aug/18
@ Sotiris ...I was laughing at you when you once referred to “all” cowboy boots giving anyone a 3” height boost in one of your post. You later went on to correct the statement that it was only Andre’s custom made boots that had 3” heels. Which IMO would give a person a 2.75” measured height boost.

Click Here Don't forget that a 6'4.75" Barkley is a BENCHMARK height, not open to interpretation.



@Canson and @Christian 6'5 3/8" Overjoyed that you guys agree w/ me on that... Thanks. Having ppl actually agree w/ me on something rather than call me a troll feels amazing.

@JT Here's the same photo shoot of the pic you showed me , only we see footwear. Looks to me like the other two men have an advantage over Kobe's sneaks...

@Rob Not that I think I'll get it, but I do think I've shown ample evidence here that warrants a downgrade. Will you downgrade Show, yes or no...?

Big Show--when not wearing GIGANTIC WWE footwear--uesd to measure 6'9" daytime height and is currently 6'8.5" barefoot, IMHO.

Canson said on 12/Aug/18
@Sotiris: Duncan is a legit 6’10”. He’s taller than KD who is really 6’9” range barefoot. Now as far as Bill Russell he’s still alive. You’re prob thinking of Wilt Chamberlain. Russell may be 6’8 range now a days. Dirk is probably 6’10-6’11
viper said on 12/Aug/18
Battier was supposedly measured at 6-8
viper said on 12/Aug/18
Tim Duncan at 6-9 would be a bit of a surprise, but he was listed 6-10 in college. Very rare for a college player to be his listed height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Aug/18
@JT

6'11.5" measured Chris Kaman's bald and is still clearly taller than Dirk. They're not the same height. Click Here
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@JT: Kaman has Dirk by an inch. 6’10” flat is very plausible for Dirk especially if Kaman’s 6’11.5 is a morning height. I’d probably lean toward 6’10.5 but 6’10 is believeable as well
Sotiris Gravas said on 10/Aug/18
@JT Good post, JT. These are all pics I have on my laptop. I was just looking at a pic of 6-10.25 barefoot height Chris Bosh and Pau Gasol has him by about an 1"... I see Gasol around 6'11", which would make Dirk Nowitzki around 6'10". The reason I say this is b/c Kevin Garnett is 6'11" and is TALLER than Dirk. That's right, the linchpin of my argument is that a 6'11" Garnett is TALLER than Nowitzki. Don't believe me...? Go look. That leaves Tim Duncan as 6'9" next to a 6'8" Bill Russell prior to his death. Lamar Odom is 6'8" barefoot next to Vitali, who's 6'6.5", not 6'7". Google Odom next to Blake Griffin... They're the same height, dude. If Chris Kaman was closer to the camera, he'd be WAY taller. I have news for you, when Kobe stands perfectly straight, he looks, you guessed it... taller. Nice try, JT...

@RP Oh, that includes you too, RP... the guy who LAUGHED at me for suggesting that Andre wore 3" heels, even though he obviously did b/c they were custom-made and HUGE. News flash: a lot of wrestlers like THK had custom-made cowboy boots. It wasn't just Andre. When you or anyone on this site has evidence to contradict me... you know where to find me.

I'll throw something non-related out there just for fun... I think Dwight Howard has grown taller and is now around 6'10", no longer 6'9". That's why he looks closer to Hakeem Olajuwon.

Bottom line, guys, Dirk is 2" taller than Big Show... which makes sense considering a 6'7 (flat?) guy like LeBron was so close in height. Further proof... Shane Battier is only 6'6" barefoot, which makes Big Show 6-foot-8.5, MAX... the same height as Bam Adebayu. Google the pics. They're ALL there. Oh, and you can compare 6'6" Battier w/ Alonzo Mourning (6'8"). I'm willing to give Big Show 6-foot-8.5 barefoot height as a low, considering he used to be 6'9"... where he did have an inch on Scott L. Schwartz when they did a Star Trek episode together back in 2004... Google the pic, it's there. I'm assuming their footwear was the same.

Take care, gentlemen. I like this forum, but if Rob doesn't downgrade Big Show and Andre, I'll probably stop posting here... I'm sure that will make a few ppl who think I'm a "troll" very happy.

Again, please look into the pic of Andre and 4'11" Bill Shoemaker vs. 7'2" Kareem next to Shoemaker... Google the pics, they're there. It proves that Andre was never more than 6'9" barefoot, the exact height 6'5" Chuck Wepner said he was. Adios.
RP said on 10/Aug/18
Dirk is 6’11” barefoot ! Fact! Or was in his prime.
JT said on 10/Aug/18
Click Here

Click Here 6’8”, 6’9”, 6’10” and probably 6’11” are not plausible unless you want to delude yourself into believing #32 (listed at 6’8”) was the starting center for a Division I school at only 6’2”-6’5”.

Dirk’s height is no great mystery. He’s 2 inches taller than Lamar Odom, who’s a solid 6’9” with 6’5” Kobe and 6’7” Vitali Klitschko. Click Here Odom supposedly measured 6’10” w/o shoes for the 1999 NBA draft but I have not seen anything official to confirm this.

Dirk’s just about the same height as Chris Kaman, who measured 6’11.5” w/o shoes in the 2003 draft. Click Here and with a small footwear advantage the same height as 7’0” Pau Gasol Click Here
RP said on 10/Aug/18
Big Show is 6’10”
Goggle pics “Big Show & LeBron James”
Several pics of them together “both in sneakers”
Big Show is 2.75” taller
LeBron 6’7.25”
Big Show 6’10”
Canson said on 10/Aug/18
@Christian: that’s a very good estimate for Dirk. He’s 6’10 range next to Caron Butler who is at least a legit 6’5” in person.

@Sotiris: I agree that Kobe’s height is a good benchmark. I think he’s 194.5-195 range. I’ve also met Caron Butler several times including playing against him when I was in high school and AAU. He’s at very most an inch taller than me and I’m almost exactly an inch shorter than Christian at 6’4 1/4-3/8. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Butler measures slightly lower than Christian most days.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/18
@Sotiris

6'10.5" is more realistic for Dirk after seeing more pics of him. It's clear that Show's shorter than 6'10.5". I highly doubt as low as 6'8" but maybe 6'9.5" at worst.
Vegas' said on 9/Aug/18
Canson I remember it well. Again you haven't explained how Rock is majorly favored in the shot given they roughly equal distance from the camera. If Rock has an advantage it's not that much and certainly nothing like Sotiris photos Click Here

Sotiris, like I said the photos you posted on Twitter are of no value in height comparison. I could post photos where Show barely looks taller than Drew McIntyre (whom I met and is roughly 6'4 out of gear) but that's not a smoking gun either.

Re: Kobe and Dirk. Close to six inches there with Kobe closer to the camera Click Here
Sotiris Gravas said on 9/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" I'm glad you said Dirk Nowitzki isn't taller than 6'11"... but I would go as far as saying he isn't more than 6'10". Everyone here agrees that Kobe Bryant is 6'4.75". There's a consensus on that. Kobe's height can be used as a benchmark to compare others... Google up some pics of Dirk and Kobe together (there are plenty to choose from) and you can clearly see that Dirk is only 6'10". The proof is right there. And that means Show is only 6'8". I don't understand why ppl can't see this. Dirk TOWERED over Show. There's NO way Show is even close to 6'10.5". It's BEYOND laughable. Seriously, Rob, I just don't understand why you or anyone else can't see this...

@Vegas' Thanks for posting those pics of Dirk and Show. Those pics are actually hard to find; they don't typically pop up on Google images. I gotta say, though, I'm ASTOUNDED that you don't see these pics as smoking-gun proof that Show can't be more than 6'8" next to Dirk... He just can't. I'd love to hear some feedback from others... What do you guys think...?
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
@Vegas: if you’re going to bring up Camera angle, you have to do it consistently. You do remember your pics of the Rock that you posted where he was favored with Ndamukong Suh, don’t you?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/18
@Sotiris

You're welcome, but if you need any help about the site, Rob is the best person to ask since he runs it. I can only answer so much since I'm just a visitor.

@Vegas

The camera angle was bad in those pics but you can still tell that Dirk's the taller one. And Dirk's no more than about 6'10.5"-6'11"
Vegas' said on 8/Aug/18
Sotiris as far as your Twitter post goes, camera is closer to Show on the left shot making him look taller, top right Dirk looks about 7 inches taller and bottom right camera is behind Dirk's back giving him advantage, again none of those are good for comparing height Click Here

Photo I posted of Show and Dirk is perfectly vertical, in fact a member here altered it that it was so. Ground, feet etc is important to see because someone could be on tip-toes, standing on something, ground might not be level etc. Without stuff like that we are left with Dwayne Johnson looking a similar height as Robert Horry in a photo Click Here

I understand very well about basketball listings. Big show was listed 7'1 by the NCAA at division 1 level. 2 maybe 3 inch height inflation I can buy but 5 inch inflation, come on now. If it's a fact Dirk is 6'10 please post his barefoot height measurements which I assume you have on hand. The NBA have released detailed measurements of past classes such as Click Here

Bill Russell looked more than 6'8 next to KG in 2008, 3 years before the photo with Dirk Click Here
Vegas' said on 8/Aug/18
Sotiris, this is a height forum so if you come onto it and start making estimates well below the average especially of guys some of the forum members such as myself have met in person you can expect to be debated.

Every photo of Big Show, Andre, Hogan, Undertaker etc with a celebrity that can be found via Google search has already been discussed on here in depth. Unless you have some new unseen evidence to provide such as a photo/video of you/your friends standing with a wrestler or a screenshot from a magazine imploring people to look at photos or asking Rob who has run this site for 12-13 years to change his estimate based on a few photos that have already made the rounds is a fruitless task.
Sotiris Gravas said on 6/Aug/18
@Christian Thank you for being so courteous, dude. I actually posted some pics prior to your helpful post via TinyPic... serendipity, indeed. Hopefully, they come out good; problem is, I didn't join the site, so, I hope that doesn't pose a problem. It would be far better if forums like CelebHeights made it easy to post stuff like Twitter, IMHO. Oh, well... BTW, I'm a fan of your posts... very good sleuthing skills on your part. (It's fun trying to figure out a person's height.)

Sotiris Gravas someones brave! Show is still 6ft11, he has cass who is about 6ft8 or 8.5 by about 3 to 3 and a half inches in their staredown!
miko said on 5/Aug/18
Show at his maximum military posture height can still dwarf Kane/Strowman.

We seem to have had an influx of trolls on the site recently, what's next a 5'10 Big Show?
James B 172cm said on 4/Aug/18
rob how tall would you say kane looks in vegas photos if big show is 6ft10.5?
Sotiris Gravas said on 4/Aug/18
@Vegas' WOW, I wasn't expecting that. The pics I posted of a 6'10' Dirk Nowitzki prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Big Show can't be more than 6'8", and you're posting a shot of Dirk where the angle looks like he's closer to Chandler... Who cares?! I have news for you, Russell is 6'8" MAX now due to age, and has a footwear advantage in that pic... Worst of all, you posted pics of Big Show next to Kane doing his famous "I'm always closer to the camera by 2 maybe 3 feet" which will obviously make him look taller/bigger. Kane isn't even standing straight in any photo! I implore ppl to go on my Twitter account, @22_ring and scroll down and look at pics of Dirk with Big Show. Clearly, I'm wasting my time here w/ Vegas. You say that the pics I posted on Twitter of Dirk and Show don't show feet (aka footwear)... WHAT...?! THEY'RE FROM THE SAME DAY OF THE PIC YOU POSTED; THEY'RE WEARING THE SAME CLOTHES/SHOES. The photo you posted is cropped at an angle and not perfectly vertical. Regardless of that, to say that the photos I posted aren't good enough (???!!!) tells me you obviously have an agenda and see what you want to see, so I won't waste my time any further. WOW! I'm actually frightened right now. One last thing, as for Big Show's basketball listing of 7'1'... do you even understand that in the world of basketball/NBA ALL HEIGHTS ARE INFLATED. Do you even understand that? Dirk is listed at 7'0" but he's NOT 7'0" -- he's 6'10". This isn't my opinion... IT'S FACT. Do you think I'm just making stuff up here? Also, you said I'm a "tall" guy. Tall? Try using the word HUGE. Standing next to my mom, I looked almost as big as Big Show next to Kelly Kelly. You saw the pic of me next to my brother. If I ever meet Big Show in real life, trust me, I won't be straining my neck to look up at him. And in terms of strength, BELIEVE ME, I can more than hold my own against Big Show. If anyone thinks I'm wrong, please check out my Twitter account. I see that I've COMPLETELY wasted my time w/ Vegas here. What a letdown! I think maybe it's time for me to just stop posting here. There's no point if this is what I get in return. Is Ashton Kutcher behind this? Am I being "Punk'd" RIGHT NOW...? Is there no one that agrees w/ me? Calgon, take me away!
Vegas' said on 4/Aug/18
Dirk is not way closer in that photo. Their back feet are in the same position and his front foot is maybe 3 inches closer to camera..Dirk is slightly standing ahead of Big Show in the other photo. As for Chandler, in normal footwear him and Dirk look close in height e.g Click Here

I had a look at your Twitter and no offense but your photos are not good for height comparison. The photo you posted of Dirk and Chandler, Dirk is wearing shower sandels/flip-flops so about an inch less footwear. Same photoshoot Russell is still solid 6'9 and has half an inch footwear advantage Click Here

Shaq isn't 6'11 as he is noticeably taller than men who measured 6'11.25 barefoot and again photo isn't good for comparing as Dirk is leaning on shaqs shoulder. The best shot of Dirk and Show by far is the one I posted. It's the only one that shows ground/feet/stances and only one where they are close to same distance from the camera.

I met Big show a half a dozen times between 2001 and 2010 and I can assure you he wasn't 6'8 or 6'9 then. Wight was listed sometimes as high as 7'1 in college basketball and articles in local newspapers were written on his size at the time..do you think they would have been that interested in him if he was 6'8? Click Here you are a tall guy but do you have any photos where you look this tall on a basketball team? If Show is 6'8 that's a short basketball team Click Here

Today Big Show is old, worn down and has dealt with lots of recent injuries so might have lost a bit of height. I can't be 100% sure as I haven't met him since 2010 in person but he still towered Kane just a few months ago

Sotiris Gravas said on 3/Aug/18
@Vegas I'm glad someone is looking at pics of Dirk Nowitzki... The reason he looks much taller than 6'9" Kevin Durant is b/c he's way closer to the camera. I promise you. Guess what? I just posted smoking gun pics of Dirk w/ Big Show that prove he can't be more than 6-foot-8 on my Twitter account, @22_ring, as well as on @celebheights... I don't know why Rob doesn't post anything there... The pic of Dirk you posted is the one that always pops up first on Google, and doesn't fully illustrate the height difference. Trust me. Please, look at those pics, tell me what you or anyone else thinks... and please post them here b/c I don't know how to post pics here. I even posted pics of 6'10" Dirk Nowitzki next to 6'11.5" barefoot height Tyson Chandler and 6'11" (maybe he's still 6'11.25) Shaq. POST THESE PICS HERE PLEASE!!! Seriously, Rob, 6'10.5" for Big Show...? NO WAY!!! I want EVERYONE on this site to go look at those pics and tell me I'm wrong. I'm waiting...
Sotiris Gravas said on 3/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" Yeah, my head is definitely bigger than that(but maybe I was a little too generous w/ the tape measure -- something most men are guilty of sometimes). I'm sorry, but I don't know how to post pics on this site. I just posted some pics of myself regarding height in comparison to Big Show on my Twitter account, @22_ring, just Google my name, you'll find it. Tell me what you think... Feel free to post those pics here, 'cause I don't know how...
Sotiris Gravas said on 2/Aug/18
I contend that a 5-foot-4 Kelly Kelly (5'8" in those heels) means that Big Show looks 6-foot-9 (MAX) in that pic. Comparing this pic to Andre the Giant w/ 5-foot-3 (MAX) Debbie Harry (5'6" in heels) also lends credence to a 6-foot-9 Andre. My 2 cents, exempt from inflation... of heights. In other words, time for a downgrade, Rob. I'd really like some feedback from ppl who've seen those pics of Show next to 6-foot-10 barefoot height Dirk Nowitzki...
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Aug/18
@Sotiris

6'8" is too low for Show. The worst I can see him today is 6'9.5". No more than 6'10" though. Btw, a 10.75" head is pretty big even for a 6'7" guy like yourself. I have an inch smaller head than yours at about 9.75" at 6'5"-6'6" and I consider that average for my height.

Vegas' said on 2/Aug/18
Big show is/was more than 2 inches taller than Strowman, Kane, Taker and Akebono so if he is 6'8 then all those guys are sub 6'5! I met and was photographed with Baron Corbin who was measured 6'6 barefoot at NFL combine and he is certainly more than 2 inches shorter than Big Show in person (or at least was when I last met Show in 2010).

Dirk looks more than 6'10 barefoot next to a 6'9 barefoot measured KD Click Here

Taker was taller than 6'6 member Alibaba at a photo shoot so 6'5 is unlikely.
Sotiris Gravas said on 2/Aug/18
@tree My head is around 10.75 inches long, so I can definitely see these bigger men having massive heads like that.
A Man said on 2/Aug/18
I agree with Sotiris

Big Show is max 6,9.5"
Kane max 6,6"
Taker max 6,5.5"

Plenty of hard evidence knocking around to support this, has all been posted umpteen times
tree said on 2/Aug/18
I think there head would be 29-30cm both show and adnre
Sotiris Gravas said on 1/Aug/18
@tree I'd be curious to know the size you'd estimate for Big Show's head. Same goes for Andre the Giant... I'm not sure on the matter. Maurice "The Angel" Tillet had a huge head due to acromegaly. The length of his death mask measures a whopping 13.5 inches.
Sotiris Gravas said on 31/Jul/18
@Philip McMullin I knew my "BELIEVE IT!" catchphrase would be beloved by many... :)

Saying that Taker is still roughly 6-foot-7 almost made my spleen explode from laughing so hard. Look at recent images of Taker next to Jimmy Fallon -- who's 5'11", MAX. Taker is no more than 6-foot-5 today. And yes, BELIEVE IT! (LOL) Or not... You have NO idea what 6-foot-11 looks like in real life... IT'S GIGANTIC. If you think Show is that height in dress shoes out in the real world, you need both your head and your eyes examined, buddy. Shaq (6-foot-11 MAX) has 3 inches on him in those infamous pics of both of them outside of the ring, BOTH in dress shoes, not BIG WWE boots. Saying Kane is about 6-foot-8 (Ha Ha Ha) when he's clearly no more than 6'6" as compared to 6'4" MAX Vince Vaughn (6'5" peak height, my ass. The dude's only 48) means I'M not the moron in question. Look at the pic of 6'6" MAX Rob Gronkowski next to weak 6'4" Vaughn... Vaughn looked like a little kid next to him. Michael Strahan (6'4" MAX) is taller than Vaughn. Please! I'm the Grade A moron..? Pfft. Yeah, I'll give you an E for effort, dude. (Philip McMullin and I are now best friends...) As for Strowman, you can find online pics of him next to legit 6-foot-7 Aaron Judge. Judge has him by an inch. Fact, not "alternative facts" or "fake news." My best advice to guys like Philip here: back up what you say w/ proof, not just bluster and opinion, which mean nothing.
Sotiris Gravas said on 31/Jul/18
@tree Totally agree that Show's head was never more than 12 inches...

No way shows head is over 12 inch

@Sotiris Gravas you sir are a grade A moron if you think that big show is 6'8, hes NOT, He's about 6'11.... BELIEVE IT!
Kane is about 6ft8. Taker is Still roughly 6ft7 while strowman is about 6'6.5/7
mrtguy said on 27/Jul/18
Rob, you think Big Show has a 13 inch head it can look at times??
Editor Rob
It would be interesting to actually measure it properly because at times it could seem under 12 and over 12!
RP said on 25/Jul/18
Correction:
Re-read Sotiris Gravas’s post...he was actually saying Andre was 4” taller than Don Lane...and not, Chuck Wepner. I stand corrected.
Canson said on 24/Jul/18
Show can look 6’9 at times but is still at least 6’10”. He is taller than Kevin Durant
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Jul/18
I agree w/ you, Rob, at times Big Show can look 6'9". Case in point: a good pic of him standing next to legit 6-foot-8 Scott L. Schwartz when they both played green aliens on the "Borderland" episode of Star Trek: Enterprise... but that was way back in 2004. Nowadays, most likely due to the excess weight he carried around for years resulting in compressed vertebrae, I really do think Show is more 6'8" by nightfall. A good comparison would be Babatunde Aiyegbusi (hope I spelled that right), who the Minnesota Vikings listed as 6-foot-8, 351 lbs (WWE billed height was 6'10"). There are online pics of Babatunde w/ Braun Strowman, who's clearly only 6'6". There are even pics of Strowman standing next to legit 6-foot-7 Aaron Judge. My favorite is Aaron Judge shaking hands w/ Big Cass b/c it proves they're the SAME height. Anways, I'm a BIG fan of CelebHeights... Keep "up" the good work.
RP said on 23/Jul/18
Sotoris Gravas, you math is a bit off!!
You said all in the same paragraph that Andre was 6’8”... “tops” barefoot, and Chuck Wepner was 6’5” barefoot...and Andre was 4” taller when both were in equal cowboy boot footwear? That would give you a 6’9” barefoot Andre in your eyes & your own math...so, how can you by your own logic, claim a peak barefoot 6’8” Andre?? LOL! Hmmm?? LOL! Bro, a few of these guys you are indeed spot on about. However, about 2/3rds of the men you just mentioned, you seriously have listed 2” below their TRUE barefoot peak heights.
Sotiris Gravas said on 21/Jul/18
News flash: Akebono, Shane Battier, Braun Strowman, Undertaker, Kane, Sid Eudy... ALL around 6-foot-6 barefoot, peak height. BELIEVE IT. That makes Big Show no more than 6-foot-8 barefoot. BELIEVE IT. P.S. Kane was NEVER taller than Taker; Kane always wore boots with HUGE heels (just like Not-So-Big Show).

Big Show is currently 6-foot-8 barefoot. Everyone's seen the pics of him in dress shoes outside of the ring with Shaq (who's around 6-foot-11 barefoot). There's pics of him with Hulk Hogan who's around 6'2" nowadays. Show was NEVER 7 feet tall. The only way he's 6'10" is with those big boots in the ring. Guys like Hulk Hogan,Jesse "The Body" Ventura, and Andre the Giant often wore cowboy boots to look 3 inches taller. BTW, Andre was NEVER 7-foot-4, obviously. He, too, was 6-foot-8, MAX. And I'm talking peak height. There are pics/video of him next to 6'5" Chuck Wepner from back in 1976. Go on YouTube and see Andre next to 6-foot-4 Don Lane in 1978... They BOTH had cowboy boots on, clearly evident, and Andre only has him by 4 inches. Simply check out Andre next to Big John Studd, who was really around 6-foot-5. There are pics of Studd next to football player Bill Fralic,listed as 6'5", or next to 6'3.5" Christopher Reeve. Getting back to Big Show. There are pics online of him next to 6-foot-10 barefoot height Dirk Nowitzki. He has Show by at least 2 inches. Look at Show next to Kevin Nash who's 6'7.5" nowadays. I simply don't understand why you think he's 6'10.5". For the record, my morning barefoot height is around 6'7.75" (something I recently discovered), and I tend to drop down to 6'6.75" by midnight. I'd REALLY love to hear a rebuttal. Rob...? Sorry, one last thing, Giant Silva and Great Khali are BOTH 6-foot-10, TOPS. For my whole adult life, I thought I was just 6'6", assuming I stopped growing after high school. When ppl ask, I still say 6'6", at 46 years of age.
Editor Rob
Big Show measuring as low as 6ft 8 seems hard to believe. I can understand 6ft 9 estimates though, sometimes the guy doesn't seem much over that, but there's a difference when a guy like that breathes in and stands tall for a measurement.
Xpac99 said on 19/Jul/18
It’ s possible 6 ft 9 3/4 today ?? The difference between kane and big show or strowman and big show seems less than about 10 cm and big show in the ring uses big boots...

Quinton Dial at the NFL Combine measured 6’5-3/8” & 318 lbs barefoot. Big Show is leaning a bit also. And Dial has the “looking up tilted angle” in his favor. So, taking into consideration that Dial is closer to 6’5.5” rather than 6’5”...and Big Show losing at least a 1/2” inch in the lean/angle...you can absolutely say that Big Show is 6’11” !

Looks about 4 1/2" taller than 6'6 1/4" Brandon Bass, although Brandon doesn't seem to have quite as good posture as Paul in the photo I saw. I'd say at least 6'10" barefoot today; seems to have lost some height in recent years.

Rob,since he says that Andre was 7'1-2 I think it's enough of a proof that he was shorter.How much though is the question.I think it's very possible he was 6'11 peak and 6'10.5"now as he looks 4-5cm smaller than Shaq but I doubt he already lost 1.5"by his early-mid forties.Half an inch?certainly because of the injuries,but no more.
I mean even those who damaged their discs through intensive weight lifting like Dolph or Arnie didn't lose that much at that age.
Maybe 6'11.5 peak is better?He certainly measured comfortably over 7' earlier in the day but remember dudes that tall (and that weight)will easily lose 1.5"if not 2" through the day.

Nash is looking 6'10" next to DDP. He looks about 6" taller and DDP is about 6'4" or maybe a tad under now. I'm not saying Nash is 6'10, but he does look like it in that recent pic. Pictures can be deceptive though. Big Show is much closer to the camera, so it's hard to tell how he actually stacks up. He usually looks 6'10"-6'11" these days, so I'd guess that's what he is. I think about 6'11.5" prime and about 6'10.5" now makes sense. It doesn't seem like Nash has shrunk. He seemed 6'9" in his prime and still looks about that height.
A Man said on 30/Apr/18
@mrtguy, yes but Show is closer to the camera and is standing straight compared to Nash's relaxed posture, as I've already said.

Imagine it as if Nash took a step forward and stood up straight. That gap between the top of their heads would close substantially, maybe completely.

@ Diego, that's a good pic. Show is standing closer to the camera and with better posture. If they went nose to nose I'd bet money that Show would only come out maybe 0.5" taller than Nash. They might actually even be the same height.

Yet more evidence that out of ring gear, Show looks 6,9.5" absolute tops.



Just look at the top of Big Show's and Kevin's head that's more than 1.5 inches at least 2 inches maybe 2.5.

Even if DDP has dropped down to 6'3 range, Nash is easily looking over 5 inches taller than him, so Nash is probably still 6'8.5 range. Then Show looks about 2.5' taller than Nash, putting him at 6'10.5/6'11 range, and he's standing in decent posture.

Red,What i say is Batistas head has to be over 9 inch atleast a solid average head lenght and u can put another head plus 1 inch lol regardelss of Khalis head position.

**********************************************************************************************

:) I do it with Khalis head, so Khali hasn´t more than 12.25" headlength in measuring position.
With Khalis raised chin position it´s about 0.5-1". Batista comes easy 2" above Khalis raised chin.

Batistas head I don´t see over 9" and the gap is about a half inch more, so 9.5"

So we differ not really, Khali is max 7´0.25" imo. But then, he was never able to look as tall as Shaq did next to Big Show, not even in dress...

Batista hasn´t a big head regarding headlength.

College basketball can inflate by 3 inches. Michael Beasely was listed at
6-10 and measured 6-7.

Beasley was listed as 6’9” by Kansas State. He was also playing power and small forward. A 6’5” or even 6’6” starting center is almost unheard of at the Division 1 level. The few exceptions have been guys who are filling in temporarily at center or are very heavy but still maintain some level of agility. 2 inches is about the most college listings will be exaggerated.

Red, college b-ball listings are usually B.S. but I don’t recall anyone being listed 3 inches taller than what they really are. So who was? What is also B.S. is a 6’5” or even 6’6” starting center on a Division 1 NCAA basketball team the size of Wichita State. .
*************************************************************************

If that´s your prove for a 6´7"-6´8" John Smith - then you have none.

Big Show was described as 6´11" when he became the Giant, he could only pass the 7foot mark in his 1.75-2" giant boots...

Again, get use to the facts:

- Nash was only marginally taller than Tyler Mane
- Old hunched Andre had Tyler by 2"
- Peak Big Show in his giant boots had max 2.5" on Nash

Thanks. That was held at the Cineramadome on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, where I saw many movies as a kid. If you look at photos of the theater as well as on Google Earth, you can see the slope of the sidewalk as well as the entrance sloping up to the theater lobby, which makes sense for water drainage.

That probably explains many of these photos and why full body photos are needed where we can see the slope of the ground, footwear, postures, etc. Roy Hibbert would be the orange figure standing against the wall in your video. They all entered on the sidewalk beginning from the right side of the lower photo along Sunset Blvd. where the long black backdrop was put up before turning right into the entrance to the theater.

Roy Hibbert looks 3.5-4" taller than Big Show.
Hibbert is listed 7´2" but thats in shoes. If he´s full 7´1" barefoot, Big Show looks again 6´9-6´9.5"

Hogan with Cary Elwes who´s in low shoes... Click Here looks max 6´3" and Hogan has footwearadvantage...

So Big Show looks actually 6´9" there...

With very good posture and max 6´2" HHH up to the start of his nose, IDK what else to say than 6´9" or max 6´9.5"

Earlier this year Big Show was still holding his own next to former NBA player Shane Battier (who was measured during the NBA pre-draft at 6'8.25" barefoot).

Big Show looks to have about 3 inches on Battier. If Battier is still 6'8" than Show is still looking 6'11" there.
**********************************************************************************************************************



Actually theres a big tilt in favour to Big Show, look at the TV behind them.

Click Here

Tilt fixed and Big Show looks shorter next to Battier than 6´10" listed Bam Adebayo


6´9.5" today for Big Show isn´t unrealistic
Logic said on 1/Apr/18
Here is a different photo of HHH standing beside of the Big Show than the ones posted down bellow.

Both men appear to have good posture and they were wearing similar footwear. And they are standing shoulder to shoulder.

If HHH is 6'2" then the Big Show does not look to be over 6'10".

Yeah, actually it´s not even 6inches, a 6´3" Hogan today means a 6´8,5" - 6´8.75" Big Show. Hogan hasn´t much more footwear... so???
Maybe Shaq is really 6´11.5" and Big Show 6´9" today???


Rob what do you think now about their (Hogan, Show) today heights?
Editor Rob
6ft 10 for Show is what he can seem half the time, but I feel he still stretches up for a measurement over that...Hogan I think if he manages to stand well may still be a strong 6ft 3 guy.

Big Show looked pretty short yesterday on the Andre The Giant HBO premiere. Maybe its camera angles, but he barely looks 6'9" in below pics.

*************************************

I think he would measure 6´10" still, he´s in normal dress shoes so we can see his actual height, not his big soled giantboot in ring height.
He already looked 6´9"ish next to LeBron, it´s amazing how close he is to Andres body meaurements (except Andres much bigger hands and feet and acromegalic features), allthough Big Show had the tumor fixed age 18 or so.

Big Show is indeed the second coming of Andre, just with the tumor fixed. 6´10-6´11" 500+lbs peakweight Giant, reasonable billed as Andres son in WCW.

The buildings behind in some of the pics reveal a big camera tilt but he still does not look very tall there. I read he had hip surgery recently but if done right there should not be any height loss.

Former NBA player Roy Hibbert (~ 7’1”ish) attended so it would be interested to see if there are any photos of him and Big Show together. Hogan looks surprisingly tall standing near the same spot as Hibbert and Ray Mysterio in cowboy boots Click Here

@RoelC not on height subject but how great did Steph look in that dress! should get her pins out more often! But back onto height talk, It's sad to see Show looking so much smaller to what he used to be! Looking 360 to 70 nowadays too! 6ft10.5 minimum still i reckon

dicksock said on 31/Mar/18
If Hogan is only 6'3" then Show cannot be 7'. That is just a fact. He looked 6'9"-6'10" if Hogan is 6'3". He basically stacked up next to Hogan now how Andre did in 1980. Again, I will point out the obvious. Show and Andre were about 6'11" in their prime, but Show looked taller because of footwear and posture differences.

It may suck a little when u are barely 7ft and you know when u get older you shrink and u wont be in the 7ft club,its better to be 7ft1 than you can be longer in the 'club' I know its just a number but still..

Hey Rob, is it possible he could measure around 7ft 1/8" or 7ft 1/4" in his prime before bedtime. I think that is what he meant when he claims to be a little over 7 foot. It just feels almost like a miracle for him to hit 7ft on the dot.
Editor Rob
Maybe stretching tall at 11am he did manage just over 7ft...it's arguable someone like Andre could have managed that feat too.

So, they are saying a peak Andre was between 6'11" & 7'0" & 6'9" after back surgery?? And a Peak Big Show 6'11-1/2" ?? Hmm?
______________________________________________-

What year did Andre have his back surgery?

**********************************************************************************

Andre had surgery after WM2 1986, before filming Princess Bride. I doubt he was 6´9" after that as he still looked strong 6´10" in 1991.
Andre was imo maybe down to 6´9.5" in 1992 when he could barely walk. So they maybe meant it this way, down to 6´9" range at the end of his life, after back surgery and his Body turning against him.

It's no surprise Big Show has lost height. Whether a full 7ft or not is the question. I can understand estimates of 6ft 11.5 range for him, but I wouldn't ever go as low as 6ft 11 peak for him.

As I´m a logic based human being, help me find sleep again Rob;)
Peak is evening or morning in this case?

Peak range for Big Show out of bed to normal evening low:

A: 7´1.5"-7´0"
B: 7´1"- 6´11.5"
C: 7´0.5"-6´11"
D: 7´0"-6´10.5"

Logan said on 10/Feb/18
Always thought he looked 7'0" when I was 5 years old, but in 2015 in the royal Rumble he looked just 6'10" with 6'7" Kane. As for 2017 Big Show's weight loss has made his posture way better to the point he is 6'11" and 7'0" with shoes. Shaq is definitely shorter than Wilt Chamberlain who is 7'1" 1/4 I suspect Shaq is somewhere 7'0" 3/4 or 7'0". Big Show in Wrestling gear looks around 1 inch shorter than Shaq which makes him around 7'0" or 6'11" 3/4 ; minus the wrestling boots he is around 6'10 1/2 at the least and 6'11" peak know.

Not sure if Big Show was on a declining sidewalk with Shaq at the red carpet event or not...but, that's nearly a 3" difference! Seriously! That's a 2.75" difference!! Shaq has a proven & documented pre draft barefoot height measurement of 7'0.75". There are also rumored 7'1" & 7'0-1/2" barefoot measurements of Shaq. However, the 7'0.75" is documented in the NBA draft data bank. 7'0-3/4" & 303lbs barefoot. So? Shaq 7'0.75 & Big Show 6'10" is very possible?? Unless, Big Show was on a slightly declining sidewalk.

Tragically, Paul Wight has “shrunk” faster than most people his own age have. When he played college basketball his height was listed as 7’1”. He was probably between 7’ and 7’1” for the first 10 to 15 years of his pro wrestling career, but over time, he has lost a noticeable amount of height, as we can see when he stands next to Shaq who is still a solid 7’1”. I saw Paul Wight 5 years ago, and I would guess his height as 6’11”.

So with Strowman in inside lifted boots wich in total give about the same height as Big Shows platforms, the gap between them looks real and it is 3 inches. Strowman not in Lifts would mean Big Show is 6´8 3/4" barefeet.

Strowman at 6´6 3/4" puts Big Show at 6´9 3/4", Big Show - giving the benefit of doubt could stretch to 6´10-10 1/4" with max posture, Strowman is already straight as hell.

2. Why didn´t you mention Big Shows raised chin to get a "full" head on Bill?

Oh it´s because it´s your agenda of a 7ft Big Show and a 6´9" Andre.... rolleyes



All realistic based comparisons point to an evening peak of 6´10.75-6´11" for Andre and 6´11-11.25" for Big Show.
with other words

peak Andre weak 6´11", peak Big Show solid 6´11".

Both were never in the same height league as Shaq and Kareem, only getting close in big Cowboyboots.





Andre next to mean gene as Big Show next to 6ft Bill- still looool

I think 6’10 is about right for Big Show. Although he was possibly a bit taller when he was younger. When you saw him in the ring with Shaq, he was about 2 inches shorter I think.
Chris said on 11/Jan/18
Shaq was joking in the Howard Stern interview. Stern was basically joking that he was taller than Shaq, and Shaq lies about his height, and then Shaq joked that they add 3-4 inches to his billed height in the NBA to make him look meaner. That was basically the joke. But a lot of people take it out of context. Shaq was measured at nearly 7’1, in the combine, flat footed.
Tarinator 6'2 said on 11/Jan/18
Looked 6’11” with a 6’8.5” Big Cass and a 6’7” Strowman. He might’ve been only 3.5” taller than Undertaker some 9 years ago in a photo I saw of the entire Smackdown roster. Undertaker may have been 6’8” at that point and Big Show was 6’11.5” as he had lost maybe a fraction of his height in his mid-30s. But Undertaker was still about 6’8” until 2015-2016. Then he dropped some height and became around 6’7.25” (201.3 cm).

I think BS is 6’10” today. In his prime I can see 7’ or maybe 7’1” in WCW day’s in ring gear. But after seeing tall “ (7’ footers) “ whom are really 6’11” BS looks a few hairs shorter.
I recently watched the clip on YouTube where Shaq says he is 6’11”. I think that’s about right when seen next to other tall guys.
So in comparison if Shaq stands around 7 in shoes then my guess is 6’10” for Show ...

No wonder 7´0.25" barefoot Shaq has around 2" on him in 1.3-1.5" basketball shoes in ring.

@Kane: Karl Malone admitted he’s 6’8” barefoot. Looking at him with Magic or Bird or Barkley and those guys he’s not more than that. He’s an easy 6’9” in shoes tho. But he doesn’t look any taller than a guy like Carlos boozer who was supposedly measured 6’7.75

Karl Malone was in SD this week and in ring with Bobby roode, he did not look as tall as big show does next to 5'11-6 foot guys.

You can't base all estimates on one photo especially one where you
can't see feet or stance ..imagine everyone thought punk and rock are similar height based on this Click Here
Kane said on 6/Jan/18
On a very serious note, even tho we’ve seen the photos your guests have posted of claimed 6’10-6’11” folks with big show and he is dead even with them, even after that, I agree with you that show must be 6’9. He was dead even with Nash backstage recently both in suits. Who Nash has claimed 6’9. I met Karl Malone personally face to face when I worked at the airport. He is absolutely every bit of 6’9. So the different between him and Shaq is the same with shaq and show. Show is NOT 7ft.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft Ok ..... maybe not 7'3 but with improved posture atleast 7'1
Canson said on 5/Jan/18
6’10 today. The size difference with he and Shaq is overblown. It’s abkut 1.5”
JJStyles said on 4/Jan/18
yeah big show ain't 7'0 anymore there's a possibility that he shrunk I would say he's either 6'11 or 6'10 now

Sometimes he looks pretty close to Shaqs height Click Here
ezmanage said on 4/Jan/18
a big man like show should sleep on a flat surface like the floor or a matt, beds are like coffins for these big guys, all it does is curve the spine even more. he could pull of 7'3 if he wanted too.
Logan said on 3/Jan/18
I thought big show was 6-11 375 lbs
Kane said on 2/Jan/18
Miko not necessarily. A wrestler his age that has wrestled for the same time wouldn’t lose 4” if he was never as heavy as Show. Or as tall...
miko said on 1/Jan/18
If Show has lost 4 inches, then so has every other wrestler.
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/17
i think the big sow is 7FT 385lb or is 6ft7 but I THINK he 7FT
Kane said on 30/Dec/17
I honestly think Show has lost 4”. That may sound crazy but think about all of the places your height can be reduced and the reasons... Knees. Spine/neck, weight, wear and tear.

Rob, who'd you toss a coin over Big Show or OJ?? in a fight
Editor Rob: a clean fight? Big Show.

Big Show is raising his chin next to Bill and has a NOTICABLE footwearadvantage.

From the barefoot comparison

1984 Wilt 2,14-2,15m
1984 Andre 2,10-2,11m
peak Big Show 2,10-2,11m



Sry wrong link,here´s the right pic

@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 29/Dec/17
aside from JT´s Andre hating nonsense, I think it´s clear from the Paul-Bill/Paul-Cain pics that Big Show hast lost visible height.

peak 6´11"-11.25"
today max 6´10.5" but likely closer to 6´10".

IIRC Bill Anderson claimed 6’1” so let’s assume he’s 5’11”. Click Here A young Big Show has a full head size and a few inches on him. Click Here That’s about how Andre in wrestling gear measured up to your 5’7” Mean Gene

*********************************************************************************************************

WHATTT?????
- Kind of malfunction did happen to your brain after looking at my comparison pics and realizing your wet dreams of a 7ft Big Show 6´9/10" peak Andre wont get into objective visitors brains anymore...

Big Show compared to Bill like Andre to Mean Gene --WHAT??????

1. Why didn´t you mention Big Shows BIG footwear next to Bill?
2. Why didn´t you mention Big Shows raised chin to get a "full" head on Bill?

Oh it´s because it´s your agenda of a 7ft Big Show and a 6´9" Andre.... rolleyes



All realistic based comparisons point to an evening peak of 6´10.75-6´11" for Andre and 6´11-11.25" for Big Show.
with other words

peak Andre weak 6´11", peak Big Show solid 6´11".

Both were never in the same height league as Shaq and Kareem, only getting close in big Cowboyboots.





Andre next to mean gene as Big Show next to 6ft Bill- still looool

Try Big Show next to 6´-6´0.5"Bill is like Andre next to 6´0.5-1" Bob Backlund if Pauls BIG footwearadvantage is fixed

So what if rob met dean? Did he mention how tall he thought dean was?
************************

Robs matching his posture, Dean has a tad less footwear so it could be up to 3" between them so 5´11-11.25" looks good.

Bill looks around 6ft imo, a tad taller than Cain.

Big Show is raising his chin next to Bill and has a NOTICABLE footwearadvantage.

No need to get pissy again JT... lol why didn´t YOU mention the raised head and the BIG footwear of young Paul next to Bill???
let me guess.... because it´s not Andre!
RP said on 29/Dec/17
JT,
I met Bill Anderson once, in 1996. I was 20 going on 21 years old. I'm 5'11" barefoot "legit"! Morning 5'11-1/4"...Night 5'10-7/8"...I would've guessed Bill to be 6'0-1/2" in 1996. I had me by a solid 1.5" inches. IMO...Bill Anderson 6'0.5" (barefoot)

No need to get pissy Dicksock just b/c someone disagrees with you. Comparing photos from different camera angles will produce bizarre results. I hope you’re joking in ascribing any merit to those comparison pics of Red.

Here I just proved that Andre the Giant was many inches shorter and 150 lbs. lighter than Andre the Giant. Click Here Click Here

You need to put your common sense hat on. A peak Andre had around a full head size on 5’10” guys so he’s around 6’10”, give or take a bit. Big Show has around a full head size on Cain so he’s going to be around 6’11”, give or take a bit, in that pic. Here, the camera is below Cain’s eye level as well as below Arnold’s so it’s probably close to reality Click Here Andre does have a footwear and posture disadvantage.

IIRC Bill Anderson claimed 6’1” so let’s assume he’s 5’11”. Click Here A young Big Show has a full head size and a few inches on him. Click Here That’s about how Andre in wrestling gear measured up to your 5’7” Mean Gene

Sportswriters covering the Ali-Inoki-Andre-Wepner press conference from 1976 estimated Andre at 6’9” for a reason. Andre could not have been wearing cowboy boots b/c he looked too short next to Ali and Wepner in pics from that event.

Here’s your so-called 6’1” Backlund not quite measuring up to your claim. Click Here Click Here

____________________

You're the one getting pissy. You will never be able to accept that Andre and Big Show were the same height. You can make all pics you want, but anybody with a shred of common sense can tell that Show and Andre were very close in height. Backlund was 6'1". That is a fact. I met him in 2013 and he was still about 6'. Again, all the evidence I've seen shows me Andre and Show were both around 6'11" in their prime. Show may have been slightly taller than Andre, but there's a reason Andre isn't listed as 6'9.5"/6'10" and Show as 7' on this site like you want it to be. It's because both men were obviously similar in height.
sid said on 28/Dec/17
Kane. Dean Cain is 5'11 I was a stuntman on the movie future sport, I'm 5'10 he only looked a inch on me, which would make him 5'11 6'1 is too much for Dean Cain.
Kazim said on 28/Dec/17
I genuinely think Big Show in 2006 was easily over 500 lbs, particularly towards the ecw run time around September to December he looked like he ballooned something crazy - like genuinely he was gaining more and more every week. He could have been close to 550 before he took hiatus he was that gargantuan

So what if rob met dean? Did he mention how tall he thought dean was? Just saying what they said his height was.
Editor Rob: I'd say Dean was under six foot, he is far from being 6ft 1.
