Show being 6´9 sounds absurd. If he is that short i know tens of people much taller than him. He is big of course. But with shag pictures there i see feet he is only 1 inch shorter. Normally i dont care peoples height under 7´2 but i hear 6´7 or so. That is not even possible. I give Big show atleast 210cm at military posture. But he can be less without that. Or Shag is under 7ft.
Johno said on 17/Oct/21
@Roboc94, here is the thing. I can see why some have estimated Show in the 6'9-range very recently however in the comparisons Shaq, Shaq usually always has the the favourable angle.

Big Show's shoes look to be approaching 1.5-inches however, Big Shaq's feet size are US 20+, he has massive feet and on top of that he often favours thick basketball shoes. The heels of shoe therefore are often 1.5-inches considering his exceptional foot size. He by default always has a footwear advantage.

With Show, in the ring, I hear of these 2-inch+ differences very often but to me, the difference is no more than an 1.5-inches, possibly less. Shaq himself, realistically is not 7'1, granted but his quotes are usually around 7'0.25, 7'0 and 6'11.75, eitherway, with Shaq at least, more often than not, Show doesn't appear below 6'10 or at least at the time. If he indeed in the 6'9-range, 6'9.75 is a realistic shout.

Rob,
For real though how long does Paul Wights head look??
Editor Rob
it can vary, I just added a photo to Floyd's page and both head titled up a bit, but Show's head looks over 11 inches that moment.
Sharuyan said on 14/Oct/21
Rob,
Do you think Big Show's head is closer to 13 inches or 11 inches??
roboc94 said on 13/Oct/21
He is definitely not 7 foot in 2021, maybe he was near that height in his WCW days, but now he is struggling to look 6'10, next to some Athlete (Forgot his name) who claimed to be 6'10 Paul Wright was distinctly shorter than this Former NBA player. Next to Shaq without his wrestling attire and boots, he looked maybe 4' shorter than Shaq. I think his boots give him a solid inch and a half in height. Barefooted I reckon Paul Wright would be 6 foot 9 1/2 at most.
Johno said on 9/Oct/21
I remember 95', 96' he was billed at 7'4 and 350ilbs and all of a sudden 400ilbs+. 7'4 was obviously an exaggeration but he definently looked 7'0. It might have been his relatively slender weight at the time but he looked like a strong 7-footer and even upto to very recently, I am not very sure about these 6'9 estimates but he has looked 6'10 at least. I say he can still get measured at 6'10+ if he stretched out.
FriedChicken said on 9/Oct/21
That's the tallest 6'7 1/2 dude I've ever seen in my entire life
Robbe said on 9/Oct/21
Everybody can believe in whatever they want to, even santa claus, but saying debate is over by 6'7.75 claim is pretty hilarious. Show here with The Sun reporter (5'9) Click Here

This debate has been going on for 30 pages and will continue for years and years more im sure. Show can look only 6'8 range when slouching, but he can look also over 6'10 in military posture, like in the photo with that 5'9 reporter. Anyway, 6'7.75 is way too low for current Show.

I have a feeling Paul Wight is going to lose mobility once he gets older to the point he is going to need a cane or crutches to walk to accommodate his height and size you think?
Editor Rob
his body has been put through a lot of strains over the last 20 years, and I think it's unfortunately catching up with him.

Rob,
Doesn't it amaze you that a 7 footer has to duck head to make it through, meanwhile an 8 footer has trouble standing tall in a standard room ceiling which is 8 feet in most homes but either way both have to things custom built and made which is expensive??
Editor Rob
A 7 footer can stand ok in most UK homes, but 8 footer would need to find taller ceilings and have lots of custom adaptations to the home to make living easier.
Young Man 5'8.5 said on 12/Sep/21
I can go with the listed 6'10, while I've seen him in some great AEW Confrontations and his Debut Match. He looks to be standing the same way he stood in 2011 - 15'. He also is losing more nowadays in a recent interview he has stated he is now 407 pounds.

He looks to be more of as listed:

Paul Wight W/ Sneakers: 6'10 with straight posture, 6'9 1/2 regular posture.

Paul Wight w/ Wrestling Boots: 6'11.5 with straight posture, and 6'10.25 regular posture.

6’11.75-7’0 at his peak. He’s a guy I can easily see losing an inch

Just to clarify I meant an inch throughout the day not an inch of height loss. I think he’s gone from 7’0ish to 6’9.5ish

I agree with these listings, 7'0" peak, 6'10" current. I'm surprised Big Show has lost this much height, considering how he doesn't have as many severe back problems or back injuries that Andre the Giant had.

Lanky said on 6/Sep/21
@King Spattan I think for someone of Big Show’s build, that’s certainly worth considering at least. I’m the same height as him, and I shrink over an inch. Really feel it in the lower back. But I weigh half as much, so am not even in the same realms of sheer mass.

Guys like Show, Shaq, Khali etc, who are tall but also ‘big’ could feasibly drop twice as much height as me, I’d say. Obviously doesn’t mean they all do.

Hey Rob
If you watch this video

Go to 4:40 mark
Kane and big show are face to face and kane try to maximize his posture, while big show seems more relaxed. How do you think is the difference here? Seems a 4.5 inch of difference, something above 4 inch flat to me
Editor Rob
Maybe near 4 inches, but Kane was probably gaining extra height with posture there.

Jimbo Lee said on 31/Aug/21
I personally believe he is 6'10 flat nowadays, He has stated in interview that he is now 407 pounds, which is almost equivalent to his frame when he was very active on the main roster in 2010 - 2016, I personally believe he can be 6'10, and 6'11 with lifts.

I feel he is packing on all this weight to match his upcoming and still being spoken about match with Shaq, 300 pounds would look adequate to go against a 420+ pounder.
King Spattan said on 31/Aug/21
Rob,
Do you think someone as heavy as Big Show and tall can possibly lose two inches per day Morning 7'0"
Night 6'10
Editor Rob
That's something which a researcher might well think is worth examining. How giant men over 6ft 8 shrink, on average.
Alex 6'0 said on 31/Aug/21
Both kane and undertaker got 6'10 and 6'10.5 billed heights and sometimes on tv said as 7'0 lol. Big show got 7'4 in wcw then 7"2 in wwe til it was then downgraded to a 7'0 listing in 2002ish. It was funny because sometimes all 3 were said to be 7'0 on tv yet big was was clearly few inches taller than undertaker and kane lol
Canson said on 29/Aug/21
@Jimbo Lee: I can see 6’11 range for Show as I’ve always thought he was that but not sure on 7’0”. In Jordan87’s defense, he is no more than 6’10” today and may even be a weaker 6’10 now (6’9.5-10 range). But not all wrestlers are billed with the same 1.25, 2, or 3” standard. The listings are all over the place. Hogan has 6’8 and 6’7 listings both and he was maybe a 6’5 1/2” guy (afternoon height) at best but I lean more toward a strong 6’5 (6’5.25-.5 with 6’6-6’6.25 out of bed) peak. Then there is Taker who was listed 6’10 at one stage and he was never over 6’7” or so like he’s listed here. He always had 1.5-2” on Hogan. Sid 6’9 when he admittted to being 6’6 range and was taller than Hogan but shorter than Taker. Then there are the outliers like Andre who was listed 7’5 but was 6’11” or 7’0” peak. There’s debate that he was only 6’10 as he was listed 208 at one stage at the olympics. My guess would be peak 6’11” range like Show. Then Kane who was 6’7-6’8 and listed 7’. No consistency whatsoever
Canson said on 29/Aug/21
@Editor Rob: maybe he could get it early AM but by afternoon he was 6’11 range
ChaosControl said on 29/Aug/21
Well Wight is close on height but way bulkier than Giannis, the man’s 6’10.5 and Big Show could swing him around by the ankles
Jimbo Lee said on 28/Aug/21
@Jordan87

Kane was billed at 7'0, and still is. The Undertaker was also billed at 6'10, Viscera at 6'8, and Big Boss Man around 6'6 - 6'7.

In order to make these billed realistically correct due to Kayfabe, Big Show would have to be listed as 7'2, especially during the early 90s. He was billed at 7'2, to match the height difference between him and Kane.

I respectfully disagree that Big Show wasn't over 6'10 but was 6'11 to 7'0 peak. Why? Because In order to cooperate all these billed height, The Wrestling Boot lift has to change among the wrestlers Kane would have to wear a 1.25 inch and Big show would have to wear something that would making taller but at the same to flatter to the ground to make Kane look his heighest.

The Undertaker was 6'7 peak, and Big Show has towered over him on multiple occasions looking sometimes 5 or 4 inches taller with and without wrestling boots. (These are pictures I've seen if anyone would like to post these, please feel free to do so).

So I believe he was 7'0 even peak, and 6'10 quick dipping down to 6'9.5 after a few hours of the day.
SeanR said on 27/Aug/21
Any rumors of Big Show being less than 7’0” at peak is non-sense. Here he is in the 90’s with former NFLer Reggie White who was listed at 6’5” 290 lbs. Show looks at least 7 inches taller there.

miko said on 27/Aug/21
There was a photo on Twitter/Instagram of Wight with 6'11 listed Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Wight is closer to the camera but they certain look similar/Wight taller, and Giannis said he 'felt small' next to Show. That would hardly happen if he was under 6'10 would it?

Now he's in AEW and Wrestling again and had his hip fixed, it will be interesting to see a proper staredown with someone tall.
Jordan87 said on 27/Aug/21

Show was never 7'0, If we are going to argue over 1/2" for A giant of a man, I will ( Its celebheights yall) . Still don't think he ever broke 6'10.5".

I get they listed him at 7'2", Then they listed him at 7'0 for most of his WWE Career.

If he was a real 6'11, they would not list him at 7'0 Folks, It would have been much higher, 7'3" . Its the WWE, c'mon now. They give 6'2" guys 6'5" listings, you think they are going to give a 6'11" guy a 7'0" listing? NAh NAH

My Guess is Show was 6'10.5" at this absolute tallest.
SeanR said on 27/Aug/21

Alex 6'0 said on 24/Aug/21
Chaos, yea if he wasn't 7'0 exactly he was only within an inch away i really believe. But unlike normal people he looked to have began to lose height earlier in life. Also his weight gain gave him worse posture by 2002-2006
ChaosControl said on 24/Aug/21
Alex I can believe that your guesses are accurate
Alex 6'0 said on 21/Aug/21
I believe he was minimal 6'11 and change at his peak. The 7'2 and 7'4 billed heights were obviously inflated but 7'0 peak isn't impossible. Mid to late 90s he definitely looked it. By 30-35 he shrank already

I think a 25 year old Show could have got 7ft barefoot, maybe just over it at 9-10am range. Early wrestling years, maybe 7ft 2 in really huge boots, did he ever wear those that looked 1.5-2 inches?

I can't remember.

@ Jimbo - I read your comment, which was what I call the 'honoured comment', selected out of the Latest Comments to advertise the site. I said to myself, "I bet that's a description of Big Show!" Indeed it was....😄🥊!

Peak - 7ft: today - 6ft10.25
Jimbo Lee said on 11/Aug/21
Peak height was definitely 7'0 flat, to 6'11 ⅞. Kayfabe was big in 1990s, You will never see any pictures of Nash and Show during that time because Nash might be dwarfer by show, or Show would only be edging Nash by a little.

Nash would've been 6'9 ½ peak, making show around that 6'11 ⅞ or 7'0 flat differentiate.
Also mind you, Hogan was 6'5 peak, and due to his slim look He looked around 6'6, Paul Wight (Big Show) Had atleast a head on him.

Final guesses would 7'0 even, or 6'11 ⅞.
Riccardo89 said on 6/Aug/21
I think Big Show was never taller than 6'11 if not a hair less wich is an easy 7'+ listing.

1990 6'10.75 max.

2021 6'9" on a good day.

@Slim92

Thank you - I forgot about that video with Shaq! Maybe I’m wrong, but he looks 7’2” on the dot to me in that video, which my guess would mean without those shoes he had on he’d be 7’1” or slightly less, definitely not under 7’ IMO.

Thanks for the clarity with interview too. My guess was he was joking. Even in the video you posted, he said, “I’m 6’11.75, I’m telling ya.” I think he’s downplaying on purpose.

Big Show has great strength. He can pick up guys like me with no effort and probably toss me across the ring like a sack of spuds.

Brahim’s taller, but Big Show is most likely heavier and stronger. And Rob he could swing you around by the ankle quite easily
Slim92 said on 31/Jul/21
@NCL also, I can't find the interview on YouTube anymore either, for some reason, but I have seen it. Shaq is young and he has like 2 guys with him on the show. Stern claims Magic Johnson is not 6'9 bc he's met him, and Shaq says he's 6'11 or 6'11.5 himself. (I can't remember which one exactly) but he said it, and the big controversy around that, is in the context of that conversation, it's a popular opinion that people think he was joking. (You'd have to see the vid to understand and make your own judgment, but its really hard to tell.)

I'm serious though do you think Big Show would run away from Brahim if he saw him, I mean the guy is 8'1'' and is stronger than Big Show physically, healthier and over foot taller??
Editor Rob
He'd probably ask for a photo with Brahim...
NCL said on 29/Jul/21
I put Shaq at 7’1”. I can’t find any source that says he was shorter barefoot. I know people say that he claimed 6’11” on a Howard Stern interview, but I can’t find any material on that. Also, we have this here: Click Here I have no idea of his footwear here but it looks like he’s a little over 7’2”, maybe 7’2.5” in whatever shoes he’s wearing. So I think 7’1” barefoot is a fair bet (absolute minimum I would go would be 7’).

Shaq with The Great Khali: Click Here Shaq’s eyeline is higher but as you can see from the line drawn, they are the same height. Khali normally wore these wrestling boots: Click Here I’m sure that’s the same if not less than a basketball shoe. So I would put Khali at 7’1”.

Regarding Big Show, here is his first encounter with Great Khali: Click Here there’s not much of a difference there, I’d say an inch, but I think Show has a slight footwear advantage, which would put him at 6’11.5” at this time (7’ peak).

Years later, the gap was more between Shaq and Show, prob 2” here putting Show at 6’11”: Click Here

And years later a 3” gap, putting Show at 6’10” Click Here

And now a 3.5” gap at 6’9.5”! Click Here video for better reference: Click Here This could be the camera angle, but I would put Show at max 6’10” today, IMO 6’9.5”.

If Kane and Braun are both around 200 cm, Big Show can’t be more than 207.

Alex 6'0 said on 29/Jun/21
Chaos you'd be very similar to a friend of mine. Claims 6'4 but was measured 6'2.5 at dr office lol. Dr stadiometer sometimes slight error
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 28/Jun/21
@Alex I Last got 6’2 flat at 9.30 pm when I was 255lbs and had been playing rugby and on my feet all day. On more physical days (lots of activity, high impact sports) I can manage just over 188. Weirdly my height loss is very drawn out, probably relates to having strong back muscles cause I never measure even 6’2.25 before 6pm
Alex 6'0 said on 26/Jun/21
Chaos we'd be just over 2 inches apart. Prob 2.25 to be precise.
Alex 6'0 said on 26/Jun/21
Chaos, yea 1pm vs 6pm could be a slight difference for example. Lowest i ever got on stadio was an evening measurement 6pm 5'11 7/8 years ago. Never anything lower. I got 6'0.5 an hr up recently. I work a physical job so most days im hitting my low in the afternoon. 6'2 1/8 for u thats gotta be an evening and day you're really physical
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 26/Jun/21
@Alex actually I checked yesterday at about 4.15pm and got 6’2 3/8 so what my afternoon height (and therefore what I am on the site) depend significantly on what part of the afternoon you count cause at lunchtime I can sometimes pull off 189.5cm
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 22/Jun/21
Alex 6'0 on Big Show
Chaos so 6'2 3/8 is an extreme low?

My extreme low is 6’2-6’2 1/8. I’m never under 188. 6’2 3/8 I normally am around 5pm. I hold 6’2.5 till 2-3 and my normal low is around 6’2.25
Alex 6'0 said on 21/Jun/21
Chaos so 6'2 3/8 is an extreme low?
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 19/Jun/21
@Canaon i do on my less active days but even if I’m not I seem to lose height at a glacial rate throughout the day
Canson said on 18/Jun/21
@Chaos: do you sit reclined in any way throughout the day? I ask because I’ve noticed myself closer to 6’4.5 on days when I do. This is usually if I telework though. Maybe worst case 6’4 3/8”. On days I don’t, I’m 6’4.25” typically and can come down lower even if I just sit in an upright chair at a bar. I measured recently after being out with my wife and friends and after sitting versus standing and I was a bit under 6’4.25” surprisingly. It was more like 193.4-193.5 range at most. Other days with no gym or no prolonged standing (30-60 minutes in one place in the afternoon) I’m a smidgeon above 6’4.25 (193.8ish)
Chaos 6'2 1/2 said on 14/Jun/21
Okay maybe it’s not 5pm, I’m usually more 6’2 3/8 around that time, but for me to get under 6’2.5 before 2-3pm is unusual. I hold it till then (I usually get up around 7am for reference) plus I have big muscles around my back so having a strong back could be an explanation
Chaos 6'2 1/2 said on 13/Jun/21
It’s weird. The average guess for his peak is believable but his current is nearly an inch too high.
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Jun/21
The first 2 hrs you typically will lose 1/2 inch
Chaos 6'2 1/2 said on 11/Jun/21
@Canson I still lose .75” but it’s more drawn out. My usual low is 6’2.25, but I rarely hit it before 5pm so I claim 6’2.5
Alex 6'0 said on 10/Jun/21
I still believe he was 7'0 peak but not impossible between 6'11 and 7'0. Today looking nearer 6'9
Canson said on 8/Jun/21
@Chaos 6’2.5: yea you’re pattern is a bit different. I know with me it’s 2 hours. With Christian, I think it’s 3 hours for 1/2” loss. Then you have Junior who is taller than me and a smidge taller than Christian at 197 and a bit and he loses at the same rate as me. Yours could be due to having a stronger back. I was very surprised when you mentioned you only come down to 6’2 3/8 some days and 6’2.5 after that many hours. Wonder if also your legs are longer respective to your height than mine (meaning I have a slightly longer torso relative to mine).
Chaos 6'2.5 said on 6/Jun/21
Your estimates don’t add up. A guy who is 6’10 out of bed doesn’t only lose 1/8” from morning to afternoon. Most guys in the 6’0-6’5 range lose 1/2” just in 2 hours. This guy is well over 6’5”. And if he’s 6’8 7/8 at night he isn’t 6’10”. He would effectively be 6’9”. I doubt he’s that low though.

They don’t lose height that fast. I’m bang in the middle of that range and it takes me a good 6-7 hours to get from 6’3 to 6’2.5
Canson said on 4/Jun/21
Colonel said on 2/Jun/21
He is every bit of 6'10 now. During his WCW reign, He was most likely 6'11 to 7'0 depending on posture. We need not to forget he is also an acromeglic giant, so whenever he got his surgery to relapse the Height growth, it mostly likely didn't stop right away.

Peak:
Morning: 7'0

Afternoon: 6'11 ⅜

Evening: 6'11

Night: 6'10 ⅞

Current:
Morning: 6'10

Afternoon: 6'9 ⅞

Your estimates don’t add up. A guy who is 6’10 out of bed doesn’t only lose 1/8” from morning to afternoon. Most guys in the 6’0-6’5 range lose 1/2” just in 2 hours. This guy is well over 6’5”. And if he’s 6’8 7/8 at night he isn’t 6’10”. He would effectively be 6’9”. I doubt he’s that low though.

Maybe today: 6’10.5-6’11.5 range out of bed
6’9.5-6’10 range in the afternoon/evening. He could still be 6’10 but not less than 6’9.5” and he for sure loses at least an inch

@Colonel No real proofs imo,wrestler shoes give some of this guys taller than they are .
Colonel said on 31/May/21
@Pierre I completely disagree with Paul Wight Being 6'10 peak height. I personally think with all known evidence, that can be proven false.

If Paul Wight was 6'10.75 - 25 peak wouldn't that make Nash 6'7 - 6'8, when he was most definitely along the likes of 6'9 2/3. That would also make Kane a legit 6'4 or 6'5 now.

SEE IF YOU HAD SAID, Paul Wight's afternoon height was 6'8.5 that would be straight believable, but Giants with bad posture such as him would lose 1.5 or 2 inches max. 6'8.5 morning height, and 6'6.5 by the middle of the day would be straight up nonsense.

Taker's head was clearly smaller than Show , even tho he had a legit 10.5 inch head . Show around 11''-12'' it's ok . Andre closer to 12'' . A guy like hogan likely 10''-10.25''
Pierre said on 8/May/21
Taker stands in a terrible posture here.About Taker's size head = Click Here = don't forget Taker's forehead is big.And the measurement of a head when the head is tilting a lot like here will be always easily bigger than measurement with the same head standing straight.Plus Taker wears a scarf on his hairs that advantage the measurement of his head too.
Taker very probably stands a bit closer to the camera here...but not a lot imo and the camera seems to be not particularly low then Taker probably has not a big advantage.Don't know about the shoes.
Robbe said on 1/May/21
Show with Taker. I believe still in their peaks.

Problem is both guys heads are 11.5in, so Taker is probably closer to the camera. Anyway, peak Show was damn close to 7ft, if not a full one.

the camera is very high then finally Big Show half a meter more distant to the camera has an advantage on Lebron here.The guy wearing glasses next to both women and who stands a lot more distant to the camera than Big Show looks around same height as Big Show in the pic.(and Lebron again stands in terrible posture in this pic)then imo my pic is better to compare them

By considering Lebron open his mouth and has a space between his jaws his head finally here is more 10.75 inches here.And finally by the angle of their heads,logically Lebron's head that is looking down a little bit has a more generous measure in the pic,his chin tilting down .Finally both guys are around same distance to the camera here.

Means Lebron is closer to the camera, his head is nowhere near 11.5in lol, so that pic is pretty useless to judge their heights.

Here Lebron is like a half a meter closer to the camera, and still appears a good 2in shorter.

Show is still easily 6'9.5/6'10 range when standing tall. Of course, if you downgrade every celeb who is standing next to him, or post crappy pics (like a certain user does), he is shorter than that.

Editor Rob
11.5 could be argued, but sometimes it doesn't seem more than 11.

Big Show’s noggin is around 12 inches long. An NBA basketball has a 9.5” diameter. Click Here Even with the ball closer to the camera here, his tilted head is around 11 inches long Click Here Here’s the basketball used Click Here which is obviously not a kid’s or WNBA ball.

A 2.5" or 3" height loss is pretty extreme for a man not yet 50. If that is correct will he be lucky to be even 6'8" by 60?

----------------------------------------

Big Show has lost height from all of the wrestling wear and tear, weightlifting, obesity, advancing age, etc. but IMO more of the height loss is due to his inability or reluctance to stand straight. Big Show tended to bend forward at his waist, even in his mid 20s. Akebono and Giant Haystacks were both over 500 lbs. yet still maintained excellent posture. Straighten up Big Show’s back so he has good posture like them and he probably gains at least one inch

Pierre said on 4/Apr/21
Around 6"10.5' peak now around 6"8.5'
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Apr/21
@Public
I can see the two figures, but no more. A full 7'0" peak is questionable, let alone over it. But I'm sure he was an easy 7'0"+ out of bed though. Hence his "little over 7 feet tall" claim.
Public Enemy said on 3/Apr/21
I think he’s still 6’9.75 afternoon . Peak 6’11.75 in the afternoon. Thing is his low is probably less as his shrinkage is more as he’s huge.

@Chaos
Are you talking about Randy footwear advantage on Raw or on the pic of them together on Randy's page?
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 1/Apr/21
Probably 7’ down to 6’9.5 or 6’9.75 and Randy has footwear advantage

There is too much ado about Show's "advantageous" wrestling shoes, the difference is the same, whether he is barefoot, or wearing his famous shoes Click Here

@Robbe = Big Show does not wear always the same shoes too.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Apr/21
@viper
I say 6'11.5" peak and 6'9.5" today.
Alex 6'0 said on 31/Mar/21
I don't know. Hes 49 now and a giant. For years carried 400 plus and 500 plus at a point. 3 inches lost on a man like him is possible but not saying for sure
viper said on 30/Mar/21
3 inches seems extreme.

6-11 down to 6-9 I can buy
Alex 6'0 said on 28/Mar/21
Looks 6'9 max with randy orton on ortons page. 7'0 peak to 6'9 today i can see. 3 inches lost at his age at his size is likely. Average guy his age no
Robbe said on 27/Mar/21
On the left 6'11 Joonas Suotamo with 5'10 reporter, and on the right Show with 5'9 reporter.

Click Here

Suotamo appears only an inch taller. 6'6 line hits slightly under Suotamos eyeline, and slightly over Show's eyeline. This comparison shows clearly how big Show's head really is, espesially his eyeline to chin level. His head really is no less than 12 inches.

Picture is from 2016 so he can't be much shorter today.

I really believe he was legit 7'0 in his prime. Nowadays 6'10 if that. Could be 6'9 range
recapa said on 23/Mar/21
my impression of show that he was 6ft11-7ft range in his peak and still can stretch to 6ft10 now.he looked shorter than 6ft10 3/4(210cm) dirk a few years ago.212.5-213cm peak,207.5-208cm today.

Well I'm not surprised you guess Big Show so tall if you don't see the real advantage in this pic.
Ben Calimer said on 17/Mar/21
Pierre is back to displaying his horrendous photo forensic skills.
It’s pretty simple Pierre, Show is standing sideways so while his right shoulder and arm are indeed much closer to the camera his head is actually pretty darn close to the same distance from the camera as Hafthor’s. Hafthor is pretty much Kane’s height, certainly within an inch and he will not challenge even today’s Show in height. No, your HHH photo isn’t the definitive evidence you think it is. Hafthor has plenty of photos out there showing this. This photo here is pretty damning for most of your estimates, isn’t it?
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 17/Mar/21
Maybe Show held the 7’0 for longer than we thought and he really is still 6’10 today... I certainly think he was a legitimate 7’ in his prime
Duhon said on 16/Mar/21
Paul look near 7' in that photo with Hafthor but the photo and angle isn't the best to get a good gauge. Regardless of height his frame holds up very well next to Hafthor who is near 400 lbs.
Vincent Caleb said on 15/Mar/21
Show must be wearing his special boots to look that tall next to Olivier.
Pierre said on 15/Mar/21
@Robbe = Olivier Richters head looks big by your measurement with lines because he tilts a lot his head plus lots of hairs .Big Show here stands clearly closer to the camera again,his right shoulder standing at around same distance to the camera as Olivier's right shoulder .And the angle of the camera is very low because we can easily see the thickness of the wall just above the door behind them.
Robbe said on 15/Mar/21
Show with 7'1.5 Olivier Richters. Their head sizes match pretty well here also, Richters head is minimum 11 inches, so he can't be much further away from the camera. Click Here
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 15/Mar/21
Then you will explain me how Hafthor can stand almost same distance to the camera as Big Show while he's standing behind Big Show's left shoulder 🙂.Big Show stands comfortably 2 feet closer to the camera here.About the angle of the camera= if the angle wasn't low/wasn't advantageous why can we see much of the ceiling just behind Hafthor....

I’d assume it’s cause Big Show is stood sideways. He’s still pretty level with Hafthor though
Myself said on 15/Mar/21
@Robbe
I'm pretty sure Big Show is noticeably closer to the camera there.
Vincent Caleb said on 14/Mar/21
I always thought Hafthor had a smaller head for his height, but 10.5 ain’t too small.
Pierre said on 14/Mar/21
Robbe said on 13/Mar/21
Show's and Thor's head sizes appears pretty accure there, 12 and 10.5 inches, so camera angle can't be that bad Click Here

Thor is a huge guy, but Show has much bigger proportions, and noticeable bigger head, so it looks like Show is much closer to the camera there, while he isn't. Thor has relative small head for his size, so he looks quite hilarious there lol 😁

I’d say Show looks 6’11 at least there. When’s the photo from?
Pierre said on 11/Mar/21
RoelC Plus Big Show wear certainly famous wrestler shoes here.A few month ago an internaut nicknamed Kan posted at Kane's page a pic of Big Show standing barefoot on one foot and wearing one of his wrestler shoes to his other foot = he had to tiptoeing a max on his bare foot to stand upright.

Matt1990 he was listed 7'1 in college. The odds in him being overlisted a full 3 inches are remote

@Vegas Big Show here is very probably with famous wrestler shoes plus he's standing a lot closer to the camera and the camera isn't particularly low and give him a good advantage too. Deduct all these camera/shoes benefits ,what is the difference finally ? = Not a lot to me.
RoelC said on 11/Mar/21
@Duhon, they did pose together back in 2015.

Click Here

Although the camera angle isn't great, it's pretty clear that Big Show is the taller of the two.
Considering they're not looking straight into the camera, there were probably several photographers taking pics. So there should be another picture of the two together.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Mar/21
I had no idea that this guy had a career as an actor too until very recently, recognising him onscreen immediately from his popular page on Celebheights. Lots of sportsmen turn to acting as a back-up career, and as they're natural showmen, they are very entertaining to watch.

This huge guy gets 7ft for his peak and 6ft10.5 for today's height. 😁👌

I think we'd all like to see Hafthor and Wight pose in a photo together. I wonder if Wight would want to avoid a photo though?
Matt 1990 said on 9/Mar/21
Seen a interview he did in 2003 on conan o Brian show in 2003 he wasn't a great deal taller than Tom selleck he deffo wasn't 7ft he was probably 6ft10 max big show in my opinion was never 7ft in his life he wore lifts in wcw to match his 7ft4 billing in Royal rumble 2000 he only looked 6ft10 he wore big foot ware in 2003 to match the 7ft2 billing he's probably lost a inch maximum from peak out of the ring in normal footwear he's never looked over 6ft10 so he ever lost height from between 1998 to 2003 but more like he was never 7ft he didn't look nowhere near shaq O'Neil height in his prime

Lanky said on 8/Mar/21
@Pierre it’s also worth considering how Big Show and Magic have totally different proportions. Show’s head is exponentially larger than his.

@Lanki I know that but how much ?Magic's head isn't particularly small.A full inch maybe?
Pierre said on 8/Mar/21
@Vegas= Imo your pic Big Show /Arnold compared to mine means Big Show wear huge shoes here.He seems to be attentive to his height sometimes by some pics then I would be not surprised if he was wearing advantageous shoes in other occasions than only in wrestler shows.

In your pic Hafthor /Joe Manganiello Hafthor probably slouches a lot because he looks just a bit taller than Joe Manganiello supposed around 3 inches shorter than him.

It'll be interesting if we see any new staredowns with 7'0.25 Shaq now he's in AEW. If we do I suspect it'll be the usual near 2 inch difference. Nobody else in the company is anywhere close to Show's height so I doubt we'll get many good comparisons.
Vegas' said on 4/Mar/21

My guess = maybe 6"8.5' by considering his bigger head than Hafthor

6'8 means he has dropped 3 inches since I last met him in 2010...

@ Lennon,

Yes, 7'2" and 500 pounds for the first couple of years. Oddly enough he was around 420lbs when he first started. He eventually hit 500+, then lost weight and they started billing him his actual weight. 441, 470 etc.
Pierre said on 2/Mar/21
Arnold as straight as possible /Hafthor 6"7.5' a bit in relaxed posture = Click Here Arnold a bit under Hafthor's lower mouth

Click Here = Arnold and Big Show both in equal posture this time = Arnold as high as Big Show's lower mouth

Big Show 2 inches taller than Hafthor here?! Hum....

My guess = maybe 6"8.5' by considering his bigger head than Hafthor
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 1/Mar/21
@Lennon yeah WCW boosted him up to 7’4
Canson said on 25/Feb/21
@Vegas: yea there he does have about 1/4” on Durant. Not sure Durant is a solid 6’9.5 at a low but close enough. Only say not solid because Anthony Davis edges him out. But yea Kanter at 6’9.75 could be right. He may have been measured at a different time or maybe in Europe later in the day as opposed to the combine. Big Show at 6’10” at least until a few years back could be accurate
SeanR said on 24/Feb/21
Wellllllllllllllllll it’s the Big Show in AEW!

Shaq is also doing something in AEW so maybe they finally have a match?

I think Big Show at peak was pretty close to a peak Shaq. If you check YouTube both the Big Show and Shaq were on Howard Stern around the same time (1999 I think).
Pierre said on 24/Feb/21
Vegas' said on 22/Feb/21
Kanter is 6'9 3/4 barefoot, more than 1/4 inch taller than Durant Click Here


Wight looks taller next to same people like Strowman and Hawkins. Also hard to compare someone with a ~10 inch head and ~12 inch one or 9 inch one
Click Here
Click Here


Fact is in my pics when Big Show stands in good posture Triple H is as high as his lower nose ,while Hafthor standing a bit in relaxed posture Triple H is as high as his lower nose.Each comparison with both heads close to the other one so very slim probability of real advantage of camera opposite to yours.And logically even if Big Show's complete head is 1.5 inches bigger than Hafthor's complete head(supposition),the difference of the vertical distance between their respective lower nose and their respective top of head will be under this 1.5 inches that correspond to their entire head.Then By Triple H /Hafthor in relaxed posture Big Show by this comparison will be hardly 6"9'. Click Here Click Here oups
miko said on 23/Feb/21
His height today is debatable, but his peak height is pretty much nailed down. He had to be in the 7'0 range.

Today personally I think he still clears 6'10 when he stands completely straight, but I can understand some thinking he might be shorter. Talk of 6'8 is utter garbage though.
Covvvid1984. said on 23/Feb/21
7-2 is comical. 7-0 absolutely max. Shac was always taller.

A hair less than 6'11" peak and amazingly "just" (maybe) 6'9" today looking at him recently Wich would be a huge height loss.
I would like to see him next to someone like basketball player Kanter, who I think is taller or max same height as Show. Kanter is 6'9"1/4.

Vincent there was more than 8 inches between Del Rio and Big Show when I met them. Del Rio was a little bit taller than me, fee inches at most. Big Show full head.

@Chaos:
He didn’t even say irregular floor, he said there is a possibility of irregular floor LOL. Nice excuse. Yet in his picture Randy Orton looks shorter than Alberto Del Rio and he thinks it is good for judging height...

Also, just to correct one of my comments, I said Kane instead of Big Show.

@Vegas in your first pic Big Show stands a lot closer to the camera than Alberto.

In your second pic Big show slouchs but Alberto isn't really straight.

Vincent Caleb imo in your pic there is a possibility of irregular floor.

This pic with Alberto closer to the camera than Big Show isn't made particularly in a low angle of camera,and both heads are very close one to the other one.Then I really doubt Alberto has a big advantage here. If the guy standing behind the other guy has a big advantage in this pic then how explain Alberto max 6"2' (pic with Rob) looks around same height as Randy Orton who is supposed taller than him ?I can understand there is a difference of postures but...finally the advantage of camera seems to me very slim
