I met a bar owner who hired Paul Wight(Big Show)to be a bouncer/doorman. He was telling me they were room mates for awhile. He had pictures of Paul in his office from when Paul worked there. The owner was 6’ 6”. He was dwarved in the picture with Paul Wight. I asked how tall was Paul. He told me he was 482 lbs. and 7’2”. At the time he worked there.

The bar owner was a liar,the absolute most you can argue for big show is 7ft1

We can't see their legs and footwear type. I think they look 2.5" not over it. Lets say Shaq is 213cm and Big Show might be 207cm maybe 6'10 at best.

Big Show is 6'10.7'5'' at average now, maybe 6'11'' but he looks much healthier than he was in the past

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

If Shaq is really about 7´0"-7´0.25", then Big Show is nowhere near 6´11". Hes 2.5-3" shorter without his big soles.

But his peak was for Sure 7'1

If he is 6ft10 today no way he was 7ft1
Imagine him being 3 inches taller than he is today..

Haystacks and Tenta were pretty close in height Click Here but Haystacks was still taller in WCW. It's hard to determine if both are standing in the same position vis-à-vis Gene given how large they are. Haystacks was probably 150 lbs. or more heavier than Tenta at this point so he has to look considerably larger next to Gene in any comparison pics. Click Here If not, Tenta's closer to the camera with Gene.

In the daylimotion vid he looks 6ft7 with good posture next to Mean Gene
I am sure the guy was 6ft7.5 peak he was 48 when he faced Big Show,i don't think you can loose more than an inch by 48 even if he was Fat
I know he was a wrestler but the things he done in the ring were not hard to do,he didn't jump from ropes,he was not often slammmed(he was too heavy to be lifted).If he lost height it was not more than 1 inch.

I know Luger is a little closer to the camera, but I can't imagine Haystacks being 4" taller than him. Luger was 6'3" at best and probably a little under. Again, I'll stick with 6'6"-6'6.5" for Haystacks in WCW and 6'7.5" for him in his prime.

Comparing Haystack with Pat Roach from that video is hard and i can't find any pic or video with Haystacks and John Tenta,it would be cool if somebody could post it.
__________________-

Another way to tell Haystacks was about 6'6" in WCW is compare him with Mean Gene, who was 5'8" at the absolute most by the mid 90s and probably less. Haystacks was only a tiny bit more than a head taller than him. Now let's assume Haystack's head was a little bigger than the average mans. That would have made him about 10.5" taller than a 5'7.5"-5'8" man. That puts Haystacks at 6'6"-6'6.5" in WCW. So either way, he was around 6'6".

Well Haystack in the no footwear pic is under Big Shows eyebrowes that normally is a 11cm difference,BUT OUR BIG MAN HAS A LONGER HEAD than a normal fellow so that is a 12cm difference,so if Haystacks was 6ft7 than Big Show was 6ft11.5

Here's what I think

Undertaker 6,6.5" peak, as low as 6,5.75" today
Kane 6,6.75" peak, 6,6.5" today
Big Show 6,10.5" peak, as low as 6,9.75" today
Kevin Nash 6,9" peak, 6,8" today

These guys are, and never have been as tall as most people think. Look at any number of photos with other celebrities, or other tall men. The WWE guys never look as tall as you'd expect.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 7/Sep/17

Asuming Old Haystacks in footwear at 6´7" and Big Show in 1.5" heels points to a 6´11" flat Big Show.
In 1.75" boots he´s even shorter than this barefoot.

So 6´11" flat evening is maximum for peak Big Show
Canson said on 7/Sep/17
@Harry Sachs: traditionally yes your center would be your tallest. Not always. Depends on mix of players you have and tempo etc.whether you are running team or half court etc. However I have played on teams just like today's Golden State Warriors or the 70s bullets with unseld or the 00s pistons with the wallaces where your second or third tallest guy may be your center. In high school I played 2 and 3 at 6'4 whereas we had a 6'8 power forward a 6'5/6'6 small forward and a 6'5/6'6 center. I also played in college where our center was only 6'7 (listed 6'9) and our power forward my freshman year was a legit 6'9".
tshark said on 7/Sep/17
I have read a article interviewing him back in his early WCW days and he says he is 6'11" but was going to be billed as 7' when they tried to play him off as the son of Andre the Giant and just called him the Giant.

A 6'10.5 peak Big Show would put Andre well under 6'10 and even I don't believe he was that short.


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

Look at the evidence, Andre and Big Show come out the same height if Big Show isn´t wearing his 1.75" Monsters.
Big Show isn´t more than 6´10.5" next to Shaq and Strowman Fact
Big Show is a well trained healthier guy than Andre was, why should he lose much height?

I could see Big Show edge Andre by a tad or two. Like Big Show 6´11" and Andre 6´10.5-75".

It is funny when people fight over stuff they clearly have no clue about. Shaquille O'Neal like most basketball players who played in the last 20 or so odd years round their height up by a inch if not more. Shawn Kemp was my favorite player as a kid. He was listed at 6'10 but next to Hakeem Olajuwon who was measured at 6'10 Kemp looked no more than 6'8. Wilt Chamberlain was measured barefooted in his prime at 7'1 by the time he was in his late 50's early 60s he was measured at around 7'0 tall. There are pictures and videos of Shaq in basketball shoes and Wilt in dress shoes standing side by size and Wilt is clearly a inch taller. Which means Shaq is less than 7'0 tall. Shaq himself said on Howard Stern that he was 6'11 3/4 in his prime. Which means Big Show was never 7'0 tall barefooted. It is hard to tell how tall he was compared to Shaq in his prime because their are no pictures. Clearly Big Show has lost some height because of the weight hit put in and because of age. But he was never 7'1 or even 7'0 in his prime.
harrysachs said on 5/Sep/17
The center is just the taller guy on the team. So if a team plays run and gun and the tallest guy on the team is 6'6 then he is still the center.

Paul Wight still had about an inch of footwear on Giant Haystacks. He looked about 6" taller than 6'6" old Haystacks. Haystacks was probably 6'6.5" in his footwear and Show was 7'0.5" in his and around 6'11" barefoot in the evening. Show's morning measurement in his prime was probably around 6'11.75" and 7'1" in sneakers. That explains his college listing.

What do you want to prove with your selected pics, showing Haystacks boots-underside to claim they are big and show a pic were we cant see Wights full heel??? Look at the big boot in the ring corner to see Wights actual soleheight and compare them to Haystacks finger wich can´t be less than ~2.2cm thickness...

Haystacks was in 0,5-0,75 wrestlingboots, easy to tell by the shape of his noots, Wight´s boots look monstrous compared to his barefeet Click Here Click Here


Wight was 6´11" max evening, in big boots 7´0.5"

Paul Wight at one point was obviously 7 feet in height, we're also forgetting at one point he had a lot of hair and that made him look a big taller than he was. if you compare bald big show to big show from the night after his debut in the ring with Vince its obvious the hair plays a factor.

6’10.5” peak height is not possible. Click Here John Smith (32) was listed at 6’8” at both Wichita State and Virginia Commonwealth and played center for both teams. Big Show’s about 6 inches taller so there’s no way a sub 6’5” guy is playing center on a Division 1 basketball team (and very unlikely a 6’6” guy either). Tony Brown (15) was listed at 6’7” at Wichita State.

Wilt entered high school at 6’11” and left at 6’11.5”. Click Here

That´s all opinions no proofs, who´s this John Smith, he´s shorter than flat booted Haystacks next to big booted Big Show - nothing more than 6´5" barefoot in this pic.

Big Show was 2.5" shorter than Shaq in equal footwear - there´s no reason why he should´ve lost more than 0.5" by now.

6´11"max., 6´10.5-75" very possible peak evening height.

Click Here 5min onwards

That´s maximum 4" and Big Show has about 2cm footwearadvantage. Big Show also claimed on german TV that he´s about 3 inches taller than Taker...

Taker was about 6´7"-6´7.25", so early WWE Big Show is about 6´10-6´10.5" barefoot. Imagine a legit 7footer with near 1" footwearadvantage facing Taker, Takers head would maybe come up to the nosetip.

Big Show was also about 3" taller than 6´7.5" Akebono both barefoot.

Big Show in equal footwear was about 2.5"-3" shorter than 7´0.25" Shaq @ the red carpet.

Big Show was with a slight bootadvantage 5 inches taller than 6´5.5" OMG in 1995.

Big Show looked 6´10.5" facing Big Cass, Strowman, meeting Dirk Nowitzki...


6´10.5" is a very realistic listing, can´t see him being 7ft legit ever.

Dicksock, seen the pic of Nash and show backstage together in suits? They're the same height. Show has always worn the same size lifts that Kane did. Nash has said he was 6'11 and his basketball stats say that as well... he's 6'9 Now according to him. I've seen him duck way under door frames for him to be under 6'9

__________

You're wrong. I don't know what else to say. Go ask Kevin Nash himself who is really taller. I would bet anything in this world Paul Wight is taller barefoot; especially in the 90s. It is obvious by looking at their frames. Wight was even about 2" taller than Nash when Nash was in cowboy boots. Again, Nash was roughly the same height as 6'8" Tyler Mane in the early 90s and they had the same footwear. Go watch matches of Big Sky (Tyler Mane) and Vinnie Vegas (Kevin Nash). There is no way Nash was above 6'9". He was 6'9" max barefoot and Wight was about 6'11.5".

A guy on the Undertaker page said the detailed heights are as follows:

Undertaker - 6'6.5(1999 height)
Kane - 6'7.4 (1999)
Big Show - 6'10.8 (1999)
Kevin Nash - 6'8.75
Sid - 6'6.3 (1999)

The more i think about it, it makes sense. If Kane had the 1.75 inch boots, he woukd have been over 6'9 in them. He never looked 6'10, so 6'7.4 + 1.75= just about 6'9.25

I think Tyler Mane was around 6'7.75. Nash had to be about 6'8.75. Kane and Tyler Mane are the same height. Big Show today i cant see anything above 6'10. Prime Giant was 6'11.5. But that makes sense. Undertaker 6'7.25. Tyler Mane 6'7.75. Kane 6'7.75 in his lifts was 6'9.25. That's roughly about the difference him and Taker had at WM14. 2 inches. And between Big Show and Kane - 2.5 inches at King of The Ring 1999.

Rob, need your honest feedback - Kevin Nash taller than Big Show at peak??

There's no way this is true. Even if Show wore bigger footwear, there was no less than 2-2.5 inches between both at peak barefoot.

Dicksock, These are just my guesses and I could be wrong. It's really weird where the backstage video of Nash and the Giant on WCW Thunder, and Big Show is clearly looking up at Nash. It wasn't one of those camera tricks

_____________

I've seen that clip on Thunder. It only looks like Nash is taller because of their positioning to the camera. Big Show in every other other comparison is taller. Nash was the roughly the same height as 6'8/6'8.5" Tyler Mane in the early 90s. Big Show was 3"-4" taller than 6'8" sumo wrestler, Akebono, when both men were barefoot. So we've seen how tall Big Show was barefoot. He was at least 6'11" barefoot in his prime. Nash was never above 6'9" or else he would have looked taller next to Tyler Mane. Sorry, but there is no valid argument that one could make to try and prove Nash was taller than Big Show. The Thunder clip is useless.

Anyone seen the pic of show and Nash a year or 2 ago backstage? They are dead even.
Markus said on 10/Aug/17
I cant´t see a peak height of a clean 7 ft for Paul Wight. He was most likely a little bit under that mark - 6-11,5 to 6-11,75.
Kane was 2-3" shorter than him in the late 90ies staredowns - Big Show was in his 20ies (!) then. That didn´t work with
a peak height of 7 ft for Show - Kane had to be 6-9 or more then without shoes, but he clearly wasn´t that tall.

It wasn't one of those camera tricks they do with Cass and Show to try and make Cass the same height (you can still clearly see Show is taller), but this was very strange. Nash IS closer to the camera, but Big Show is CLEARLY looking up at Nash and not just by a margin, but it almost looks like he's looking up at him at least 2 inches. Then 10 minutes later in the ring, Nash is looking up at Show. Makes me wonder if Show used inside and outside lifts and when he came to the ring, he but his inside lifts in. But even that, a man that size wouldn't be able to walk easily in them. Check out the link I posted below where I say that Nash is taller than Wight.
A Man said on 8/Aug/17
Show's definitely getting some major help from lifts while he's in the ring. Look at the recent pics of him with Strowman, you can clearly see Show's boots are more than twice as thick as Strowman's.

It's stuff like this that makes me think he might only be in the 6,9" range barefoot.

From the looks of things:

Prime Show: 6'10 - Wore 1.5 inch platforms to be 6'11.5.
Prime Nash: 6'10.5 - - Never wore lifts. (College Height: 6'11) - usually colleges round up to the nearest inch.
Prime Kane - 6'7.5 - Wore 1.75 inch platforms to be 6'9.25
Prime Taker - 6'7 - Was 6'7.5 in boots.
_______________

The idea that Nash is taller than Wight is absurd. You don't know that Wight wore lifts and that Nash didn't. You're just guessing. Wight always looked 2-3" taller than Nash in WCW and WWE. Even Nash in cowboy boots was 2" shorter than Paul Wight in wrestling boots. Nash was about the same height as 6'8" Tyler Mane in WCW so you can forget about anything above 6'9" for him. Meanwhile Big Show was 3-4" taller than 6'8" listed sumo champion Akebono when both men were barefoot. So you're wrong. Sorry, but for a fact you're wrong. I would literally bet the fate of the entire world that Paul Wight was at least 6'11" in his prime. He was most likely closer to 7'0". Even now, he is nearly 6'11" at least.
James B said on 7/Aug/17
Rob do you think he's lost anymore height this year?
Kane said on 7/Aug/17
CHRIST Nash looks taller... if you watch closely, which I'm good at, you can see that big shows eyes looked up to Nash. Anyone remember the promos Nash kept doing and saying he's the "one true giant" against big show? I think show wears inner and outer lifts...
mrtguy said on 4/Aug/17
I also noticed that since Paul lost weight he stands alot better, in the past when he was over 500 pounds he could look 6'9" range.



6'9'' is just ridiculous, he looks minimum 6'10.5'' short
Johan said on 3/Aug/17
Was actually surprised how tall Big Cass looked in their staredown, 2 inches max. Could buy 6'8.5" for him, the 6'9" listing he had before WWE seems reasonable.

I also noticed that since Paul lost weight he stands alot better, in the past when he was over 500 pounds he could look 6'9" range.
A Man said on 2/Aug/17
That's a really strange piece of video. Nash definitely looks the taller backstage but in the ring where (presumably) they're in the same footwear Show looks taller.

In my previous post I wasn't suggesting that I think Nash is genuinely taller, he almost certainly isn't. But there is too much evidence about to suggest Show is barely 6,10" these days, and perhaps he never was any taller than that.

The Akebono pictures I will concede do throw a spanner in the works. Who knows.

Guys, Kevin Nash is taller than the Big Show in street clothes.. Show wears 2-3 inch lifts. Take a look at this video from wcw thunder in 1998. Now, anyone can argue that Nash is standing closer to the camera, but you can still see that Nash is no doubt taller when show doesn't wear lifts

The comments on Big Show looking noticeably shorter out of ring gear on this page and Kane's page are interesting. Look at any number of pictures of him out of the ring with other celebrities; look at him with Rafa Nadal, look at him with Lebron James, look at him with Shaq.

And then there's the picture of him with Kevin Nash where they're both wearing suits, and Nash actually comes out a touch taller (if I knew how to link on this site I would).

This isn't a man who looks in the 7 foot range or anywhere near it, he honestly looks 6,9" in some pictures. It's all well and good seeing him stand 2-3 inches over Big Cass in the ring and saying easy 6,10.5"-6,11", but when you've got no idea what footwear advantage he's being given in the ring it's completely redundant.

____________

He was 3-4" taller than 6'8" sumo wrestler Akebono and that was when both guys were barefoot. Big Show was at least 6'11" at his tallest. I'd bet my life on that.

Sean said on 1/Aug/17
There's no doubt that Big Show has lost height. How much height is debatable. Based on pics/videos of him from the past (1995-2000), easily looked 7'0" range. Nowadays his height can be as low as 6'10". 6'10.5" is a good estimate based on pics with Dirk Nowitski, Lebron James, even Shaq from around 2009 (see google images). The pic with Kevin Nash in suits does look like he is the same height, but perhaps the angle of the pic does not capture the true story. IMO Nash is still a good 2" shorter than Show, but I could be wrong.

Rob, wanted your opinion - Why do wrestling companies have a tendency to exaggerate wrestlers heights? Is it because they believe fans truly think that wrestlers are larger than life? Maybe kids don't notice it as much, but why bill someone 3/4 even 5 inches taller than they actually are ( For example: Kane 7'0" billed, 6'7.5" true peak barefoot). Sometimes they get it right (Randy Orton, John Cena) who are billed near their peak height but I always wondered if they worry about losing their audience by actually showing the true measurements of wrestlers.
Editor Rob: maybe ties in with the 'bigger is better' mentality.

I doubt they'd lose audience if they started doing real height/weight measurement videos.

In fact they could incorporate some of it into their shows, do build-ups, have jokes and running Gags...

I highly recommend that the WWE should consider proper Height/Weight components to their entertainment.

If Big Show was 7'0 so Shaq is a weak 7'1 and Khali a bit over. If Andre was 7'0 so Shaq is a bit over 7'1 and Khali a weak 7'2.

Agreed. WWE heights are utter Horsh!t. 7'0 is ridiculous for Big Cas. He is a good athlete however. I mean he has the build of the Undertaker early on in his career whereas Big Show, Strowman, Even Kane are naturally not as Fast, but thicker and stronger.
miko said on 12/Jul/17
Show looked around 6'10.75 with Cass IMO. His posture has vastly improved with his weight loss.

I don't know why WWE wants make Cass as 7 foot when he was always listed at 6 ft 10 during NXT.
The only way he looks a legitimate 7 ft is with the other fake billing of Kane (7 foot); I don't know why at this point they don't overbill also big Show by 4 in. They are ridicoulus with heights

Why do these bit guys always seem to plump for the same type of girl?

Mind you, even a girl of 6ft would look petite next to him! I don't know Kelly's height, but she looks tiny next to Powerhouse Paul, who I reckon is 6ft10.5. I don't see him as ever having been a full 7ft. I think his peak was just a wee bit under - 6ft11.75, but probably a comfortable rolling-out-of-bed height for him I think WOULD have been 7ft!

I don't much like the idea of being one of his faithful little pets asleep next to him by his bed, only to find I'm on the receiving end of a drowsy, drunken Paul, falling splat out of bed after a night on the tiles...

In all photos so far of Cass/Show together outside the ring, Show has looked anywhere from 2 to 3 inches taller than him. None have been particularly great in terms of them standing right next to each other but Show is clearly taller.

Cass seems to be 6'8.5 range barefoot as he had close to a couple of inches on 6'7 Strowman not so long ago:

After seeing The Big Show (Paul White) standing next to Shaq, who is apparently 7'1" I'd say Big Show is about 6'10" maybe 6'10.5" there was a good 2.5 - 3 inches between them, because you have to take into account Big Shows wrestling boots, he usually has a good 2 inch sole like Kane does.

i think it's definitely reasonable he was a little over 7 foot cause the guy is just MASSIVE anyway so there was probably some compression going on
berta said on 26/Apr/17

Wight being a flat 6'11 prime would throw a lot of things off. A shade under 7'0 is possible but under that I just can't see.

He did wear big boots in WCW, but lets be realistic the most advantage he'd be getting over a regular 1.25' wrestling boot would be half an inch to 0.75'? Anything over 2 inches is broken ankle territory, 2 inch boots were the kind of stuff Kane wore in the late 90's and they looked huge.

His boots today look a little smaller than say 15 years ago but it's not drastic. At a 7'0 prime he was likely 7'1.75 in his biggest WCW boots and at 6'10.75/6'11 today he's probably just over 7'0 in his boots today.

Poorer posture, lack of hair, smaller boots contribute to him looking a tad smaller than he did in the 90's, but him having 4+ inches on a 6'7 guy a few weeks ago (after 100lbs weight loss/improved posture) is something a alleged 6'8 guy (which yes is stupid) could not do in regular wrestling boots.
Slim said on 16/Apr/17
How about we figure out how tall an elevator door is? We seem him have to duck going in one right? pictures can't do justice bc we weren't actually there. My 6'6.5 friend doesn't look 6'6 in his pictures. Does that make him less than 6'6.5? No. Too many odd angle photos to think we KNOW his height. Also, you NEVER know if another people he's standing with are wearing hidden lifts. It's super common.
Backstage said on 13/Apr/17
Paul Wight - 6'10.25 (wore boots that made him 6'11.5 - 6'11.75 to claim 7 feet)
Nash - 6'8.5
Kane - 6'7.98 - Wore lifts that made him between 6'9 and 6'9.25

Nash was barely 2" taller than 6´7" Undertaker and barely 1" taller than 6´8" Tyler Mane
Paul was barely 4" taller than 6´7" Undertaker

Paul was barefoot max 2" taller than Nash, with his giant Big Boots he could look 2.5"-3" taller...


Pauls "always been a little over 7ft" claim is either in shoes or early morning measurement...

I don't think Big Show's still under 6ft10.5 even today. Extremely tall guys like him cover up more height when they have loose posture compared to normal people. He doesn't have the best posture in the world, hence why he may appear sub-6ft10.
NCL said on 8/Apr/17
My best guess is for Big Show is probably 6'10" now and I'd say 7' or a little over at his peak.

The Shaq pictures have been a big source of debate here. Trying to narrow down Shaq's height I still think he's 7'1" based on all the pics that have been posted as of late of him in front of height rulers. The height rules put him at nearly 7'3", which makes sense if he wears basketball shoes that give him about a 2" boost.

Click Here
Click Here

I know he apparently said on Howard Stern that he was measured 6'11" or 6'11.5" and was told to exaggerate his height. I can't find that video anyone have a link?

He apparently entered the NBA when he was 20 years old, so it's possible he could have grown another inch or two. Click Here

This could explain the height difference between him and Wilt Chamberlain or that could be a footwear thing: Click Here anyone know what year this was?

Credit to Red78_01's photobucket I think this is pretty accurate: Click Here

Their footwear looks comparable, a 2" boost for each.
Ere said on 8/Apr/17

Click Here
A Man said on 7/Apr/17
I defy anyone on here to show me a picture where Show ever looked a legitimate 7 feet tall.

If you accept that Taker and Kane were never any more than 6,7" and 6,7.5" respectively, then none of the staredowns they ever had with Show ever make him look more than 6,11".

Some further evidence; he looks no more than 6,10" opposite Strowman, who himself looked only a quarter inch shorter than 6,8" billed strongman Brian Shaw. And that is if you accept Brian Shaw is 6,8", which Celebheights own evidence does NOT support. Rob has Hafthor Bjornsson at 6,7.75", and Brian always comes out half to three quarters of an inch shorter than Thor in the multiple photos of them together.

And yet further; Show never looked more than 2" taller than Kevin Nash who Celebheights has at 6,9", but if you look at the photo of Nash with Rob you're going to have to have a pretty good imagination to see him stretching out to anything over 6,8.5".

I don't believe Paul Wight has ever been 7 feet. I think a 6,10.75"-6,11" peak in the 90s and today is barely scraping 6,10".
Strong 5ft9 said on 6/Apr/17
I think with his claim, it could mean he is a quarter or half inch over 7 feet. Also said something about his Acromegaly, he's a bit skeptical about being taller if it didn't get removed, but believes he would be more wacky looking if he still had it. Which i think might be the case.

Hey Rob, mind adding his claims in a Howard Stern interview back in 1999. Click Here. At 3:18 when Howard asked How tall he was when he was 12. Paul replied "6'2", 220 (pounds)". At 3:28, when asked how tall he is now. Paul replied "I'm a little over 7 foot, about 420 (pounds)". I think it is quite important to know, he still says the same thing 17 years later.
Editor Rob: the description kind of covers it, he's always been a little bit over 7ft.

Recent pic of Big Show next to Shaq. He's looking about 6'8"-6'9" these. He's had hip replacement (shortened femur) and has had back and neck surgery (fusion). In his PRIME (WCW days), he would have stood as tall Shaq (7'0"), if not having edged him out slightly (7'0.5"). He has lost tremendous height. Recent pic of them together from this year. Big Show is closer to the camera AND is wearing bigger heeled boots than Shaq. Claiming he is 6'10.5" next to MAX 7'0" Shaq is utterly ridiculous.

I think 207-208cm is big shows barefoot height nowadays

I agree. People (including Rob) is for some reason ignoring the interview between Shaq and Big Show from a few months ago, where Shaq is literally dwarfing him today. Back in the mid-late 90's, they would have been the EXACT same height, if not Big Show having the edge back then. Imo, he's lost a tremendous amount of height. He was 7'0.5"-7'1" in the 90's and is looking to like a flat 6'10" (even 6'9" and change) AT BEST today.
Slim said on 22/Feb/17
Philip McMullin oh now the story changes? You said you didn't have to look up now you're saying "all the way up" 6'4 compared to 6'9 is a HUGE difference. I garuantee you my 6'9" co worker Mark would tower your 6'4" body. Regardless of "broadness"

You asked how is 6'6" not a giant-like, as we were mentioning big cas . We were comparing Andre and show and how they were "giant" on a different level. Again, if you can't recognize show and andre's size as being in a different level then some typical 6'7" guy you have problems .

mrtguy,

Correct. Due to their Condition Big Show and Andre were unnaturally Big. If Big Cas is the next gen Giant that they are going to try to push then they are in trouble.

Strowman is one strong dude however. Not in the "Giant" Category, but as far as power, he is right up there with the best of them. We may very well never see a "Giant" again since the modern WWE Wrestlers seem to be getting smaller.

Don't even mention great Khali b/c he was the most uncoordinated, charisma lacking piece of sh!t the WWE has ever hired.
mrtguy said on 16/Feb/17
Comparing Big Show to Andre whether who is better, stronger and agile is getting irritating, both men or GIANTS should say have such natural feats of strength from the condition. In my opinion I don't think there is no one who you could think is more GIGANTIC than those two GIANT of men physically or imposing nowadays!
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Undertaker Frank,

I have yet to See Pics of Andre looking taller than Big Show next to Mean gene. ( Giant was in WCW he boots were thicker than Andress but not as Thick as they were in WWF/WWE).

Next to The same people Andre has not really looked taller than Big Show.

Im Not saying Show is alot taller than Andre. Maybe an Inch.

Big Sow Maintained a Much More Muscular frame, on top of being faster and More Agile. Andre's Accent killed alot of his Mic. Big Show is quite entertaining at times.

Prime for Prime Big Show was taller, Heavier, stronger, faster, and Better on the Mic Than Andre the Giant. As I have said on the Andre Boards, if Show was around the same time, he would have been by far the better Big Man.

After the weight lost recently Show's posture has certainly improved. He looked to be a good 6'10 with Strowman.

Sean said on 2/Feb/17
Should be interesting to see Show vs Shaq at this years wrestle mania. Show's posture looks to have improved since he has lost weight, so the staredown with Shaq and Show at WM could be telling. IMO the difference will still be max 2" (maybe 1.5") difference:
Big Show: 6'10.5" barefoot, 7'0" in wrestling boots
Shaq: 7'0.5" barefoot, 7'2" in his sneakers

When it comes to Big Show's peak height, especially when he debuted in WCW back in 1995, you can make the case he was legit 7'0" tall and perhaps a little over - 7'0.25"-7'0.5".

Now a days Show is around 380-400lbs and looks great. Strowman announced on instagram, after weeks of intense cardio, that he dropped 40lbs from 390. He's been about 350 or so pounds for most of last year and hoenstly he suits this look. Very menacing.
