@Vegas

You forgot to mention how tall Sheamus and Matt Bloom looked though.

1999 Click Here Their footwear Click Here Kane would be about 6’9.5” in those 2” heels; Big Show’s heels are around 1.5”.

@JT Ppl who admire their body post thousands of selfies on Instagram. I'm not on Instagram. In the past 7 years or so that I've been on Twitter, I've probably posted a grand total of maybe 5 pics of myself. I highly doubt that paints me as a classic narcissist. How exactly is posting a pic w/ a "Kick me" sign on my back a representation of a guy that's full of himself? I have a guy like Joey700--whose brain is probably Photoshopped--calling me out, along w/ yourself, as a liar of sorts. The only reason I posted selfies was to substantiate myself against the antagonism that was heaped upon me. If you continue to find fault w/ that, so be it. I'm here to have fun guessing ppl's heights, not to get into verbal jousts w/ ppl who cast aspersions on me.

I have the same photo of Show and Shaq on my laptop. Show is clearly wearing his big soles. When the world saw Show next to Shaq in dress shoes, he was exposed. Show is maybe 6'9" max barefoot now, IMHO... whereas I can't see Shaq being more than 6'11.5". If you disagree w/ that, you're free to do so. I won't hold it against you.

You post a lot of great pics online. I hope that continues. As for the negative energy you send my way: not a fan.

It's pretty hard to argue this photo... where the verisimilitude of kayfabe wrestling-ring gear is not at play... Click Here

@JT, posting any shots of Show in the ring are completely pointless because we know he wears big heels and lifts when in the ring.

It's not coincidence that the only shots of him looking 6,11"+ are of him in ring gear.

Outside the ring vs Shaq, vs Lebron, vs Nadal, he looks in the 6,9" range.

Please no more in ring pics. Use your common sense and your eyes.

@Sotiris: personally you are entitled to your opinion. You don’t need to take a break from anything if that’s what you believe. If you’re going to get attacked over your estimates, then it’s only fair that those who upgrade every single person they comment on get the same treatment, yet that almost never happens. You don’t see much being said to those who inflate other people
Sotiris Gravas said on 27/Aug/18
@Vegas' No offense, but you have trouble w/ depth perception.. Laue's shoulders are way higher than Show's, and that includes eye level. Big Show is closer to the camera; if Laue stood at the exact spot of Big Show, his eyeline would be 100% higher. The fact that you can't see this is very perplexing.

Look at this pic... Click Here

Based on your logic, 6'4.75" Michael Carter-Williams' eyeline is very close to that of Big Show... but, of course, this is only an optical illusion. Also, look at Kevin Laue WAY in the back. He's clearly taller than Big Show. The fact that you can't see or understand this leaves me dumbfounded.

Look at how close Show is to the camera... Click Here Do you actually think their eyeline is the same...? Of course not. It's an optical illusion. If Laue came way closer to the camera, his higher eyeline would be 100% apparent. The fact that you can't understand this scares me. I'm quite shocked that you don't grasp this.


Here's Big Show next to a 6'11" dude with height lines drawn in showing they're the same height:
Click Here LOL. This is laugh-out-loud nonsense. Big Show is closer to the camera, which is why his head is so massive. If the other guy stood in the exact same spot, he'd be WAY taller. It's an optical illusion.

Another thing that makes me laugh is when ppl use the size of concrete blocks to measure someone, not realizing that if someone is 3 feet in front of a wall, he'll look taller:
Click Here The fact that ppl don't comprehend this blows my mind.

Here's 6'10" Dirk again (not even standing straight) w/ Show... Click Here If your depth perception--or lack thereof--prohibits you from seeing that the man in the back, namely Dirk, is taller, then I'm left genuinely terrified.

@miko You don't like a 6'6" Matt Morgan. Good to know.

P.S. On Stone Cold's page (23/Apr/18) you said you thought Bret Hart was around 6'1" peak height, and that 5'11" was "utterly absurd and trolling." I have news for you, buddy, Hart was never more than 5'11" and is 5'10" now.

Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on Andre's page (22/Apr/18) that he met the man back in 1995 and that he was 5'11", the height Stampede Wrestling had him at.

Your "new depths" comment is apropos of Hart only being 5'11" in his prime.


Stone Cold is max 6'0" today, which puts Hart at 5'10", tops... Click Here

Click Here Same height sitting on a car Click Here

sotiris you must have some virus on your computer that prevents you from posting full body shots, especially of Big Show. They aren't hard to find Click Here Shaq is over 7’0” too no matter how much you and a few others here huff and puff. Karl Malone is 6’8” Click Here Amare Stoudemire is at least 6’9” (he measured 6’8.5” at age 18) Click Here

Dirk is at least 6’11” Click Here

Big Show’s definitely lost height from what he’s put his body through over 20+ years of wrestling and perhaps from the recent hip surgery but he’d still measure 6’10” range today.

And yes, sotiris, unless you decided to change your height again, you are taller than me. And no, I don’t have pics of me admiring my body to post here. Whatever floats your boat, pal…

Vegas' said on 25/Aug/18
I would be very wary posting any screenshot from outside or from a shoulder mounted tv camera. E.g Show looks much shorter compared to Nash in this clip from 1999 Click Here

Looking at the recent Billy Gunn, DDP and Alex Rodriguez photos (and Kane ones) he doesn't look to have lost 2 inches. 2 inches is alot for a 46 year old that looks to be in great shape right now compared to 12 years ago when he was morbidly obese. It's an observation though because I haven't met him in nearly a decade.

Sotiris, in that comparison Show comes out taller than Laue. Shows eyeline is higher and I doubt Laue has a bigger forward than an acromegalic Click Here
Philip McMullin said on 25/Aug/18
Your inch difference guesses are so way off! That pic of kane and shaq kane isnt even straight!
Vegas' said on 25/Aug/18
I met Morgan, Sheamus, Matt Bloom (A-train/Albert) and Test out of wrestling gear. Morgan for sure was taller than 6'6. He was taller in person than both peak Kane and Taker. Morgan was similar height to Kevin Nash and Nathan Jones. Morgan and Nash had a stare-down on November 13th 2008 episode of TNA impact if anyone can find that video.

Test was shorter than Heidenreich in person.

You can find photos of pretty much anyone looking shorter. I was at mania 22 sitting in the upper bowl and it was clear from there that Show had inches on Kane. Pay close attention to 3 minute 21 second mark Click Here

A 6'6 Matt Morgan? This place is at new depths.
Sotiris Gravas said on 24/Aug/18
@UndertakerFrank Given that Sid Eudy was 6'6.5" peak height and always had at least 2" on Hogan, that puts Hogan at a peak height of 6'4.5", MAX. Funny, that's what he tells ppl his height is now, down from 6'7". It's not dementia setting in, he just likes to lie, a lot, about a lot of things... the size of his arms, his member... Elvis... everything... Click Here

If Sid and Taker wore similar footwear, that means Taker was ever-so-slightly shorter than him, given that Eudy would always edge him out during staredowns... Click Here
Click Here

Just for fun, here's Sid next to Kevin Nash, back when Nash was still close to 6'9". His current height is 6'8", tops... Click Here

This is my favorite pic of Taker next to a 6'2.5" The Rock... Click Here

If Big Show already lost 2" into his early 40's, how tall is he expected to stand in another 10 years?

@Rob: how do you have Show shrinking 2 inches already in his 40s?
Editor Rob
He'd been doing 20 years now of wrestling, i think by now it is taking a big impact
Sotiris Gravas said on 22/Aug/18
@JT News flash: you drew height lines on my 1.25" heel from an angle where the heel curves around, making it look bigger. (My dad is in 1" heels for comparison.) I stand corrected. Big Show didn't always wear 2" heels. Question: How big are they here:
Click Here


You said I had a problem in a previous post w/ guys who are taller, larger, and stronger than I am. I don't. Apparently, it would appear that you take umbrage w/ guys (i.e., me) who may happen to be bigger than you are. Duly noted. There's always someone that's taller, larger, stronger. That's true. In my case, it applies to very few ppl. If that bugs you, tough cookies, friend.

Me, Hornswoggle...? No, I don't think so. All I can say is... Click Here


You see how Rob just downgraded Big Show's height by 0.5"... ? I like to think that some of my comments played a small role in that. So, maybe what I have to say isn't meaningless trolling, regardless of your "high" opinion of me.


As for Hornswoggle, I believe this is a more flattering pic, wouldn't you agree...?

Canson said on 22/Aug/18
@Rising: he would likely get something like 6’10.75 in the AM or 6’10.5 but perhaps they rounded up to 6’11”. Meaning Timmy. As far as Wade that’s high for him to measure if he’s 6’2.75 or 6’3”. Typically the variance is 1/2”. 3/4 seems high imho. I usually lose 3/4” for an entire day.

@Canson

6'9.5" is also possible for Big Show today but that's the minimum. There's a good chance he lost 1.5" from his 6'11" peak.

Vegas said on 18/Aug/18
….Just too many variables in that shot of Show and Schwartz. We don't know footwear, we can't see ground so Schwartz could be goofing around on tip-toes. Been a few years but I seem to remember Show being noticeably taller on that episode of Star Trek. Schwartz doesn't have long legs either.

Good point. Akebono was Schwartz’s height and Big Show has longer legs Click Here Kevin Nash was a few inches taller than Akebono and has really long legs but they were around the same length as Show’s Click Here Click Here

Sotiris, you claim Big Show wore 2” heels so this is what a 2” heel looks like scaled to your 1.25” heel Click Here That puts you below Hornswoggle's height....
Sotiris Gravas said on 22/Aug/18
Here's Big Show next to 6'4" Jack Swagger. If Show is a maximum of 6'9" now, w/ his 2" soles we get 6'11"... next to Swagger who's 6'5" in shoes. So, a 6" difference:
Click Here

Here's 6'8" MAX Kevin Nash... Click Here (peak height maybe 6'9"... always taller than 6'8" peak height Tyler Mane... currently 6'7") next to Big Show. Funny how Nash looks taller here... Click Here

Just a reminder, here's 6'5.5" evening height Ali Baba (I'm assuming w/ a 0.5" footwear advantage) next to 6'7" Tyler Mane... who maybe dipped down to 6'6.75" from standing around all day... Click Here , Click Here


One more thing, if Show was, say, lying down on a couch for a good long while prior to his encounter w/ Swagger, as opposed to Swagger standing around all day... that makes a difference... We don't know what one tall person does prior to being seen w/ another tall person, which makes determining exact height even more difficult.



@Rob Am I crazy or did you just lower Big Show's height from 6'10.5" to 6'10"...?
Editor Rob
The argument over last year I think has been if Show is over 6ft 10. I think there is probably enough to say he might not be over that in 2018
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Aug/18
@Canson: I'm not arguing Duncan was measured 6'11" evening or even midday. If you say he's a solid 6'10" -- and that seems about right to me -- then he should be able to measure 6'11" in the morning. Of course, heights can be misreported as we know from Shawne Merriman getting reported such varying figures, but quite a few sources reported the 6'11" so I think it sounds like he got one of the early measurements. Aren't the measurements the first thing they do at the combine? Duncan looks similar to Aldridge, though played bigger. As for Wade, well he was supposedly measured in shoes 6'4.75". At least, that's what the NBA claimed. As I said, his height varies with Kobe, though. He oddly looked no more than 1" shorter in '07 all-star portraits: Click Here Click Here 2nd photo is primarily useful for showing shoes as the angle is low, but they don't look near 2" apart there. I think the Jordan photo is more significant since we agree Jordan is a tiny bit shorter than Kobe, but they're back to back and MJ looks near 2" taller or 1.5" absolute minimum. If Wade was the high end of your estimate then a 6'3.75" morning measurement wouldn't be completely out of the question. He likely shrinks 3/4" at the very least, but some also shrink 1"-1.25".
Sotiris Gravas said on 21/Aug/18
@JT let me just say that I love the pics you've posted online. I want to repost your great pics of Big John Studd next to 6'6" Fred Dryer. I don't know where you find this stuff...

Sorry, you're right, I do keep changing my mind when I see better evidence... I thought Bill Anderson was 6'2" based on Google, but it was an old post by you where you suggested Anderson was only 5'11 (w/ photographic evidence)that made me see the error of my ways. Same goes for Victor Rivera. You pointed out that it wasn't Rocky Johnson. The only reason I thought it was Johnson is b/c of Rob posting the photo. I confess I was very cocky when I first came on here. Lesson learned.

I see now that Andre was never 6'8" peak height, I see 100% 6'10" now, possibly 6'11" if standing full military posture. I admit I was ignorant on the matter. According to 6'6" Chet Coppock's email (that you supplied online), Coppock believed Andre was only 3" taller than him, putting him at 6'9", same height 6'5" Chuck Wepner gave. When Andre doesn't stand perfectly straight, that is the height he gives off.

I said Hogan was 6'3" peak, but I see now that he could have been 6'4", maybe even 6'4.5". I'm confused by him looking the same height as Fred Ottman, who Google puts at 6'3".

Sorry, if I put up stuff that you guys have already seen, this site is very new to me. I only learned about "morning height" from CelebHeights. When I said my morning height was 6'6.75, it was me trying to sound all fancy and knowledgeable, "knowing for 100%" that my daytime height was assuredly 6'6', just like the end of high school. Only thing is, I had grown taller since then. I only recently realized that the doors of my home I would visually compare myself to are 6'9", not the standard 6'8". As for my tweet, here's another one I posted shortly thereafter, once the scales had fallen from my eyes... Click Here
Also, I am 100% OK w/ ppl being taller than myself; it makes me feel less of an odd man out.

If I get heights wrong, know that it's not b/c I'm a "troll," I'm just learning here... same as everyone. I admit I've posted a lot and very frequently, but it was only b/c it was fun and wanted to get what I thought out there to see if ppl agreed. When I'd post stuff on Twitter there would be zero reaction. For what it's worth, I pretty much got what I wanted to say off my chest and won't really be posting all that much in the foreseeable future, but I will be following along.

P.S. If Kevin Laue is 6'11" not 6'10", it still means that Big Show is significantly shorter based off of those pics. I don't see how Show can be 6'10.5" like Rob lists him. My 2 cents. I recently posted pics of Lebron next to 6'10.25" Chris Bosh that pretty much shows 6'7.25" is a morning measurement for LeBron, and that his daytime height is more 6'6". Based on that, the pics of him and Big Show puts Show at around 6'9", tops. Hey, I could be wrong, right? :)

P.P.S. I highly doubt Trace Adkins is still 6'6". This is him w/ Blake Shelton listed as 6'4":

@Sotiris: MCW is more like 194cm max at a low if he measured 195 in the morning. I agree on Theus maybe he’s 6’5-6’5.25 while Barkley 6’4.5 at a low like he’s claimed

@Rising; I can’t believe Duncan at 6’11” in bare stockings. But a solid 6’10 I believe. Maybe misprint. That’s way too high with Nowitzki or Lamarcus Aldridge. I was gonna mention Dwayne Wade at 6’3.75 seems awfully high. He likely was measured in shoes imho as he looks 6’2.5-6’3” especially with Kobe or Wilton Speight or Barkley and ditto for MJ. As for Show, I agree. 6’11” peak 6’10” today

JT said on 20/Aug/18
Sotiris Gravas the world’s not going to end b/c there are people, including many wrestlers, who are significantly taller, larger and stronger than you. You can’t even keep your own height straight Click Here

You claim Bill Anderson is 6’2”. Click Here That puts Big Show over 7’5” in wrestling boots. BTW, Anderson was around 6’0”.

You claim Vince was 6’1.5” peak, which he may have been close to. That puts Big Show over 7’1” in boots with poor posture in 1999 Click Here Vince looked a little taller in the ring with Arnold S. that same year so he was probably close to 6’1” with Big Show.

Kevin Laue looks easily 6’11” with Kareem Click Here Your photo has Kareem closer to the camera- Kareem's head size is a dead giveaway. Big Show is closer to the camera which is why he’s taller than Laue there. Laue is closer to the camera than 6’4 ¾ measured Michael Carter-Williams which is why he looks at least 7 foot there Click Here Not sure how anyone could come up with 6’10” from that pic.

Trace Adkins was wearing cowboy boots with Big Show so he’s maybe 6’7.5” with Big Show who is in dress shoes Click Here Adkins is in cowboy boots here too Click Here

Here’s a good tip. If you post a pic or comparison pic where Big Show’s head or Andre’s is smaller or even the same length as the other guy (i.e., the pics with Battier and Adebayu), you know the other guy is closer to the camera. Big Show’s head is around 12 inches long, and 5.5” from the eyes up, meaning he has to look up to anyone who is his own height. That makes him appear shorter than he really is but we do measure height to the top of the head, right?

Another word of advice – the odds are probably >90 percent that any pic you post has already been posted and discussed here ad nauseam. That doesn’t mean you have to stop posting pics, just don’t be surprised when there’s no big reaction to it or you don't change any opinions.

Your estimates are getting shot down left and right. Andre is 6’8”, no maybe 6’9”, well maybe 6’10” or 6’11”, well actually he could be 7’0” with “Rocky Johnson” (5’11” Victor Rivera)…. Take a deep breath and relax. You should probably sit out the next few rounds here:)

There's simply no way this man can now be 6'10.5". That said, I was wrong about his peak height being 6'9"... it was probably around 6'11"... same as Andre. Here he is with 6'2" Bill Anderson back in the day... Click Here
Here's 6'2" Anderson w/ 6'1" O.J. Simpson... Click Here

@Rob At least list Show at 6'9" now... EVERYBODY loves to talk about how wrestlers lose SO MANY inches of height... Why not Big Show...? Given the weight he's been carrying all these years, he's MORE likely to have lost height. My 2 cents, guys.

P.S. Knowing now for certain that Maurice Tillet's head was around 11.5" long (not 13.5" like that fake death mask), I highly doubt that Big Show's head is more than 11". Even if Andre's was 12", it doesn't 100% add extra height... It just means Andre's big jaw hangs lower, making him look like he has no neck.

@Canson: I didn't say there was a significant difference, I said Shaq is only a bit taller, but either way, he's definitely no shorter. Big Show's shoes might have a bigger heel than Shaq, but I'd agree the difference looks about 1.5" overall in that '09 video since it can look more and less than that. The article specifically says Duncan was measured barefoot so it can't be shoes, but some of those measurements are quite early so that could be one. The difference between Wade and Kobe varies too much, but Wade doesn't look as tall as 6'3.75" with Jordan.

Mourning certainly looked taller than 6'8" with Bill Russell in 2000: Click Here It's fair to give Russell about 6'9" at 66 considering he still looked close to it a decade later. Battier looked 1-2 cm taller than T-Mac and Trevor Ariza: Click Here I believe Ariza was 6'7" w/o shoes and T-Mac looks pretty much identical or if he's shorter it's by a very small amount. Mike Miller also just edged T-Mac and Grant Hill was a tiny bit taller than both.

@viper: I thought Big Show was more 6'11" range peak, but I have to agree after seeing those basketball photos again.

I saw other pics of that even with Big Show & Trace Adkins...Trace was indeed in cowboy boots. Big Show dress shoes. So, Trace had close to a 0.75” footwear advantage. Also, try to ignore the cowboy hat...that gives the illusion of Trace standing 2” taller. Also...Trace’s eyes come up to Big Show’s mustache/upper lip. With the size of Big Show’s Head/face...that’s a 3.75” difference in height. Factor in the footwear advantage & Big Show is 4.5” taller than Trace. A 6’6” Trace gives you a 6’10.5” Big Show...if Trace was down to 6’5.5” then, Big Show is Bang on 6’10” there. Also, on level Flooring & equal footwear, Trace was 2.25” taller than Blake.

The photo I posted of Big Show and Adkins you could see feet, ground and stance and Show isn't closer to camera given location of feet. In yours Adkins head is bigger than an acromegalic so he is clearly closer to camera. As regards his height he looked 6'5 range with Dennis Rodman and Penn Jillette (who I met in person more than a decade ago and he looked 6'6). Adkins is older now and admits to have lost height recently. This video is from 2011 so Adkins was still in his 40s, he is wearing cowboy boots as we can see when he goes through table but when Show stands fully straight the top of Adkins head still doesn't reach Shows eyeline (and we suspect 5 inches between shows eyeline and top of his head) Click Here JT's screenshots Click Here

Just too many variables in that shot of Show and Schwartz. We don't know footwear, we can't see ground so Schwartz could be goofing around on tip-toes. Been a few years but I seem to remember Show being noticeably taller on that episode of Star Trek. Schwartz doesn't have long legs either. He has a big head for a normal guy without gigantism but with 5'8 Mamun who posted here a few years ago and seemed to have met every celeb on the planet :) Schwartz looked similar height to Kane and Sid Eudy in street clothes and we know Show still has inches on Kane in 2018.

Show has a higher eyeline than Laue in your photo suggesting he is taller.. don't let the big mop of hair fool you. Laue has buzzcut with Kareem and looks younger? Kareem in 2012 with Howard, still give Kareem 7'1 minimum up until recently Click Here

Mychal Thompson still looks 6'8 range with his son. Looks taller here in fact Click Here

@Sotiris: keep in mind that combine measurements occur in the early morning. So Klay unless he’s grown isn’t more than maybe 6’5.25. He looks similar to Draymond who Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry (former assistant coach) called 6’5”

MCW is prob around my height 6’4.25/.3. I measure 6’4.75 an hour out of bed.

Lebron is favored with Battier

I needn't remind you that some men have a big torso (like me), whereas some men get their height from really long legs (like Conan O'Brien). It doesn't really confirm that Schwartz might be benefiting from any type of footwear advantage.

Canson said on 17/Aug/18
@Rising: Shaq and Robinson looked similar to me.

@Viper: 6’11” is too much for Duncan although I’d draw the line at 6’10”. 6’11 is likely a shoe height just like they say Dwyane Wade was 6’3.75 barefoot. He is not and that’s clear with Wilton Speight or Kobe or Barkley
Canson said on 17/Aug/18
@Vegas: yea for a guy who measured 6’8.75 at a combine he would still be 6’8.25 at a low or at worst probably 6’8”. I don’t have Show any less than 6’10 today. Peak prob 6’11”

I'm with Sotiris, way too much evidence about to suggest Show is in the 6,9" range and maybe even lower.

The only times he looks over that are (surprise surprise) when he's in his ring boots.
------------------------

Your last line isn't really true though. I mean we have photos of Show clearly the tallest member of two different college basketball teams in the 1990s where he wasn't wearing wrestling boots Click Here Click Here The latter photo we have listed heights for the players such as #34 6'8, #15 6'7, #23 6'7. If Big Show peaked at 6'9 or below then the best guesstimate for next tallest players on the Southern Illinois team (based on there being roughly 5 inches between Shows eyeline and top of his head) is #44 6'4.5, #33 6'2 and the next tallest for Wichita (a division 1 school remember) would be #32 6'4 with #15 and #23 being 6'3 range.

As mentioned before where I come from (Republic of Ireland) basketball is an ultra niche sport as gaelic football, hurling, rugby union and soccer are the four dominant team sports in order played in college. But even here there was a guy at least 6'7 who played basketball in my college. The only reason I ever even saw him was because he was dating a girl in my class. Upon leaving one evening I saw the same chap standing with a guy taller than him so we had a ~6'7 and a ~6'8 player on our college team but the second tallest player for Wichita State in 1991-92 was 6'4..no wonder they didn't reach final 4 that year :)

If you think Show peaked at 6'9 or under then you can't have Akebono at higher than 6'5-6'6 peak given the height difference between the two barefoot in 2005.

Show isn't in wrestling boots with Shaq in 2009 and looks more than 6'9 there Click Here Shaq standing with Kevin Garnett on video and I don't think anyone on here estimates KG below 6'11 Click Here

He isn't in wrestling boots with David Arquette who Rob has listed at 5'9 Click Here or Trace Adkins who Rob lists at 6'5 Click Here

Big Show and Andre were both probably around the same height at 6'11" peak but no less. 6'9" or 6'10" is too low.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Aug/18
@UndertakerFrank Love your username, dude. Anyways, here's legit 6'7" barefoot height Aaron Judge next to 6'6" Braun Strowman... Click Here

And here's 6'7" Aaron Judge next to 6'7" Big Cass... Click Here They are both 100% the same height. Cass isn't 6'8". Which supports my belief that Big Show is now 6'8.5" (peak height of 6'9").

Hope you liked the pics! Click Here

Battier looks taller than Mike Miller here. Even if he’s camera advantaged he’s still at least as tall as him

Click Here
Canson said on 16/Aug/18
Battier af 6’6” seems too small. He was supposedly measured over 6’8” barefoot. Even if that’s a discrepancy and maybe a shoe height even early AM, he would be around 6’6.5-6’7 at a low. He doesn’t look any smaller than Lebron or TMac
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Aug/18
@Canson I definitely had a footwear advantage in the pic w/ my bro. My shoe had a 1.25" heel and my brother looked like he had on dress shoes, so... (0.75"). In the pic with my mom I had on 1" soles, same as the one of me next to a door, I believe my mom had bigger footwear... In the pic w/ my parents, I have the same 1.25" heel... My dad had on 1" heels... When you weigh a lot, it helps to have a comfortable shoe. (I'm going to go to the gym later today in old, worn-out sneaks--where the insides have collapsed due to my weight--that give no significant boost to my height...)
Canson said on 16/Aug/18
@Sotiris: Blake is probably close to 6’8” (I have him a little under 6’8” actually). As far as Kevin Love, he’s 6’7” barefoot. His 6’7.75 was likely a measurement after some laying down (although it was afternoon). I say that because of how he looks with Tristan Thompson and how other people who have met him (one of which I posted on Love’s page) described him 6’7” when he met him. In addition, Dan Majerle has pegged Love at 6’7. My guess with him next to Chris Bosh and Joakim Noah in the pics I posted is that Bosh and Noah are both solid 6’10” guys and that Love is maybe 6’7.25. I’d put Lebron at about 6’6.75 barefoot. I think you have Durant and Howard close enough. Both may be 1/4” over 6’9.

Big Show is not under 6’10” I doubt. He was taller than Kevin durant in their picture. However, 6’10” flat is as tall as I would give him since Shaq had about 1.5” or so on him
Canson said on 16/Aug/18
@Undertaker Frank: I think it’s the other way around or they are the same height. Robinson only had Duncan by 1 or 1.5” I disagree with Sotiris about Duncan or Russell. Maybe Russell is 6’8” and change (weak 6’9) or strong 6’8” today but Duncan imho has always been 6’10” barefoot. However, I have seen where Lamarcus Aldridge looks taller so I’ll leave the door open for a hair under 6’10” honestly. But He was listed at 7’0” when he came in and was reduced to 6’11” when Robinson retired, likely not to have to play center.
Vegas' said on 16/Aug/18
Canson, it was Sotiris that estimated Howard at 6'10 not me. I was just comparing a guy he estimated 6'10 with one he estimated 6'8. I think Howard probably stands more than 6'9 flat though maybe 6'9.5 given he did look to edge out KD. Not sure what you mean by Kaman being taller when photo expands. I increased magnification 2-3 times and they still look similar.

Sotiris, slow down dude. Nobody is going to have time to open a million links in one post.

Going to try and address some of your points..ok here goes:

* Kelly Kelly/Show and your mother/you are completely different photos with different camera angles. Camera is to far left of Kelly while it's straight on in yours. The camera angle is different in the one of you and you parents on the street so you actually come out shorter in that one than the one in the store. Photos outside on the street are usually poor, your dad looks taller than 5'9 range there if you are 6'7 given top of his head comes to your mouth..but he clearly has advantage in photo as street seems to slope downward towards curb. Just one more point on this, comparing two people with two completely different people in a photo is of little value overall and certainly not ample evidence to use in height estimation.

Re: Dirk, unless you think there are ~7 inches between him and Show not sure why you keep using that photo as evidence. Again we can't see ground so we have to assume Dirk is standing on higher ground given the difference is nowhere near 7 inches in the full length shot on flat ground. Here is one of Dirk and KG standing side by side not 10 feet away Click Here We don't know KGs actual measured height though unlike Chris Kaman whom the NBA actually released his height w/o shoes on their offical website. The photo of the guy claiming 6'11 and Big Show doesn't help your case of a 6'8 Big Show given that he and Show were close in height not 2-3 inches difference!

Schwartz's waistline and crotch-area are much higher than Shows in the photo suggesting a little footwear help for Schwartz. There are lots of photos of Show and Schwartz out of gear standing next to the same people and Show being noticeably taller.

Re: Bam Adebayo. I can only find 6'9 and 6'8.75 barefoot measurements for him online. Regardless again photos have different camera angles with Show and Battier photographed likely from below. Show still comes out about an inch taller in comparison but the fact we don't have a full length shot of Show and Adebayo together we can't really compare the two properly Click Here

As regards Akebono what's your evidence that he was 6'6 peak? Sumo assocation of Japan are pretty adamant he was 203-204cm peak, not sure how accurate that is but one site did have his supposed measured height at different times from a teenager to yokozuna. The two photos of him you posted with Sapp are taken 12 years apart, one in December 2003, the other in December 2015. The latter he clearly is in bad shape physically and was admitted to hospital gravely ill just over a year later. Sapp does look 6'4 range as he had 3 inches easy on Lashley whom Rob met in person but Akebono looks taller in 2003 next to Sapp than in 2015. Show looked more than 2 inches taller than Bono in 2004-05. That shot is too far away to try and compare but JT did do this comparison Click Here Probably 5 inches between Shows eyeline and top of his head considering average is 4.5 inches Click Here

Barrett's closer to the camera there. There is zero chance that Barrett was only 3 inches shorter than Show out of gear. Barrett wasn't that much taller than Drew McIntyre (Galloway). Lots of photos and video of those two pre WWE on the UK and Irish circuit. Now McIntyre I met in person, in fact in same hotel as Show and trust me McIntyre is alot more than 3 inches shorter than Show out of wrestling gear. Again look at the basketball photo JT posted on August 10th. You are basically arguing that Barrett is/was taller than #34 John Smith who played center for a Division 1 team.

In play NBA shots are next to no value.

@UndertakerFrank: Robinson was a bit shorter than Shaq, not taller: Click Here Click Here Click Here And Robinson never looked as tall with Duncan as Shaq did during the 2000 all-star MVP presentation: Click Here Click Here Those photos are dodgy, but look up the video and you'll see a significant difference. I can believe the 7'0" listed for Robinson during the '88 Olympics, though. Lowest I'd see him is 6'11.5" since he was taller than 6'11" Greg Oden: Click Here Anyone who doubts Oden's measurement can see he was a good 2" taller than Durant.

Sorry but after seeing your posts I have a feeling you just wanna be bigger or at least taller than the biggest guy in WWE, and thus make some absurd comments and disregard many photo evidences.
Your 6' 8.5" Big Show with 6' 6" Akebono photo wow that is the biggest 2.5" in the world. Looks a healthy 4" to me if not more.
And why not post the picture of Strowman and Big Show after Big Show loses some weight, in which Big Show looks almost 4" taller. The pictures in which Big Show wears blue, red and white. Yes I know you know these pictures exist but you choose not to post them.

….Tim Duncan measured 6'11" barefoot at the NBA predraft.

Sounds about right. Duncan has a habit of walking around with his head down but he never looked a flat 6’10” when standing erect. That’s about what Kevin Durant would measure now and duncan is taller than him.

Sotiris Gravas said on 13/Aug/18

@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.

Here’s your reminder Click Here Click Here and Kelly Kelly could be more than 5’8” as she is wearing platforms and looks around 4 inches shorter than Vince (maybe 6’1” in shoes). Using your crack analysis, Big Show should barely have a full head size on her.

You also claimed that Mean Gene was 5’9” Click Here Amazing how your 6’8” Big Show was able to wrestle in 7 inch plus platforms… Jimmy Hart was even taller than Gene Click Here

@viper Tell Jason that there's no way Big Show is as low as 6'7", but I do think he's 6'8.5" evening height (peak height was 6'9"), the same height as "Bam" Adebayo. Show and Bam looked EXACTLY the same when compared to Shane Battier (6'6" barefoot). And I do mean EXACTLY. Sorry, Rob, there's NO WAY Show is 6'10.5". ZERO CHANCE. Saying his peak height was 7 feet tall is HILARIOUS.

@Rob Here's a rarely seen Big Show in his BIG boots next to 6'5" Wade Barrett. I GUARANTEE you, if Show didn't obviously have a footwear advantage, he'd look even shorter.... 6'10.5" for Big Show...? NO, I don't think so... :) Click Here

6'5" Barrett is 6'6" in boots, 6'8.5" Big Show is 6'10.5"/6'11" in his BIG(!) boots... I know, I know you and everyone else on this forum don't see it. But trust me, I DO. No offense, but there's less than 0% chance that I'm wrong. I'd bet my life on it. If I were an attorney, the judge would rule in my favor w/o question. Again, agree to disagree, :)

@RoelC Dude, All three guys, Lamar Odom, Blake Griffin, and Kevin Love are listed as 6'10"... ALL three men are around 6'8". Odom is not a solid 6'9" as you suggest.

Here's Odom and Griffin... Click Here They're the same height.
In this pic, Griffin looks taller than Odom b/c he's closer to the camera:

Here's 6'7.75" morning height Kevin Love next to Blake Griffin... almost the same height:

Problem is, I think Kevin Love's 6'7.75" is a morning barefoot measurement when compared to 6'10.25" Chris Bosh... Click Here , Click Here so Love's daytime height might be 6'7".

Dirk Nowitzki is not 6'11" as you contend. He's 6'10" b/c 6'11" Kevin Garnett is taller than him:

Hope that Show/Dirk pic shows up... Show looks like a Keebler elf next to Nowitzki.



The pic of my brother (around 6'4" 230 lbs) next to a wax statue of 6'2" Morgan Freeman didn't show up in my last post b/c I overlapped the pic w/ some text, so here it is...
Click Here as compared to him and me... (around 6'7" back when I weighed 305 lbs, 5/6 years ago)... Click Here

My current weight is actually 260 lbs (down from 275 lbs) at a low body fat percentage. Fortunately, I lost only fat and not muscle... biceps: 18" down/18.5" pumped, chest: 53". Sadly, I'll 100% gain it back in the winter. My morning barefoot height (no socks) is around 6'7.75" and now that I lost weight, I find that sometimes I can go past midnight and stay at 6'7" rather than 6'6.75". I've even been known to stay at 6'7.25" if I spend a lazy Sunday at home all day.

I have no doubt Duncan is taller than Durant. Duncan is slouching noticeably in the photos with Dirk and Kobe and that's not uncommon for him. Look at him here with Yao and Kevin Garnett: Click Here Garnett is standing in front and raising his eye level, but if you look at the top of their heads, Garnett is just the slightest bit taller. Duncan is around the lower part of Yao's eyes or just below. That could even be a 6.5" difference considering Yao's head, but it's not an 8" difference and Yao's trainer claimed he had grown to 7'5.75" without shoes by the fall of 2004. I have no idea if he's being truthful, but this photo with 7'1.25" Mutombo was taken around that time: Click Here That does look an easy 4.5" difference. David Robinson is or was close to 7'0" and while this first photo favors Duncan, these leave little doubt Duncan is at the very least 6'10": Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

Lamar Odom was listed 6'10" during the draft, but he was not measured at that height. He skipped the predraft camp in Chicago, so no physical data is available for him from the 1999 draft.

@ 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.

@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.

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

@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.

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

@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.

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.

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).
Sotiris Gravas said on 21/Jul/18
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

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.

First Scale shows them asumed barfootheight if all in equal footwear, second reduces Big Show because of his giant sole.

It all fits pretty good, so Big Show was never the 7ft + a little he claimed barefeet. In his giant soled boots he had 6´9" Nash by 2.5", so 1.5" without.

peak evening 6´10.5", morning 6´11.5-7".

Again Big Show in GIANTSOLED boots DID NOT HAVE MORE THAN 2.5" on 6´9" Kevin Nash.

So NO WAY this guy was 7ft barefoot! FACT.

Big Show eveningheight:
peak 6´10.5"
today 6´9.75"

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.

Far away video of Big Show at the Andre premiere. At the end camera pans out and shows 7'2'' NBA player, Roy Hibbert off to the left.

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

Click Here The guy in the middle (Travon Free) played college basketball at Cal State Long Beach and was listed as 6’7” 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
tree said on 31/Mar/18
The first
and the last pic is not good he looks too short,but the one where he has a big smile with triple h he looks max 6ft10.
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.

Did you see Big Show next to Hulk Hogan at the HBO Andre the Giant documentary premiere in Los Angeles?
If Hogan is 6ft3 then Big Show can’t be taller than 6ft10...probably even a fraction less than that...
tree said on 29/Mar/18
Stop pushing higher he sad he was 7ft tall not 7ft1.
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..

This quote needs to be in red cuz people forget it or don't notice it "I'm 7 foot and Andre was about 7ft 1, 7ft 2"

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.
RP said on 21/Mar/18
I agree with Red.

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.

Rob, can you imagine Big Show and Andre with a 15 inch head??
Editor Rob
It would make them look smaller in photos...Andre in photos alone never really looks like he could be a big 7 footer because of his dimensions.

Put a 15-inch head on Andre and you'd have folk thinking he's 5ft 10!
Slim said on 15/Mar/18
@HeightcrazyRed6ft great find. I KNEW he was below that today.

Rob, do you think Big Show's head would be more in 13'' range now if he didn't get rid of his pituitary illness??
Editor Rob
I'm not sure how much more his skull could have developed.

Big Show in his peak was for sure 7'1 but now (2017/2018) he's like 6'10

It's arguable he could be 6ft 7.5
