How tall is Big Show

Big Show's Height

6ft 10 (208.3 cm)

Peak height was 7ft 0 (213.4 cm)
American wrestler Paul Wight. He has said "I'm 7 foot and Andre was about 7ft 1, 7ft 2" and when somebody claimed he was 6ft 7 and 325 pounds - he retorted with his real weight: "Actually I am seven feet tall. I weigh 452 pounds". He also claimed to have "Always been a little over 7 feet tall".

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.

@ 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.

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
Lennon said on 28/Feb/21
Wasn't he billed at 218.5 (7ft 2) at one point?
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).

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

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'.

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.

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.

@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

Triple H stands JUST a little bit closer to the camera than him and the angle of the camera is neutral here and the camera very distant of this guys so this is finally an insignificant advantage ...I posted here other pics of them that show the same difference,of course it was pics with both in regular shoes,not this famous pics with guys in wrestler shoes that some internauts seem to prefer and posted thousand and one times🙂
Canson said on 3/Feb/21
@Chaos Control: yep and here is Kane with 6’5.75 measured Donovan Smith. That’s prob earlier in the day so even saying 6’5 3/8” would still make Kane 199cm minimum. 6’6.5 is more realistic imho. He’s obviously not only 6’5.5 like Pierre is saying

JayHay said on 20/Jan/21
I think at his peak he was maybe 7’0 1/4 at a low, normally speaking at his current age he would have shrunk a tad to maybe 6’11 3/4, but his hip replacement might have altered his height a bit more and it’s hard to tell from their height in the ring since he probably wears boots.
Bensim1993 said on 12/Jan/21
So the picture with big show and omos is big show wearing slightly bigger sneakers or after his knee surgery could he have be back to roughly 7ft ish or is omos really 7ft 2 or is show slightly in front of omos
J.b said on 12/Jan/21
Hitting his 50’s and having a hip replaced he has lost height - which I say is good for him it will make life a little easy. Big show is looking a lot shorter I say his 6’9 max.

@James Hendrix

I disagree. I think your peak barefoot heights for Show are more likely his in-ring gear height. He was for sure a 7 footer with boots on, maybe a hair more.

That said, I don't think he was ever 7 foot barefoot in his life. Highest I'd say is 6'11" in the 90's.

@ Vegas,
Anthony Becht’s official NFL combine measurements were 6’5.75” & 270 lbs. Becht is now 43 years old. Good chance he’s only 6’5.5” now. IMO, Paul Wight looks exactly 6’9.75” in that photo. If footwear is somewhat equal to Anthony’s ?

I doubt you lose height at 43. Some do but most don’t. I could see maybe a couple mm but the vast majority unless a major injury has affected them don’t. In reality, the combine is held early morning so that would be around what he is (6’5.25-.5) in the afternoon

In the picture with Big Show and Jordan O. Big Show is definitely wearing lifts, If show is 6'9, there is no way he would measure up that close to someone who is 7'1, Jordan is most likely no longer in his in-ring footwear, Big Show still is. Jordan is most likely 7'2 barefoot, Big Show looks to be rockin a 2 inch lift if his feet are flat on the ground.

miko said on 7/Jan/21
Show is holding up very well with 7'2 Jordan there, great posture. Taking things into account I suspect there would be a solid 3 inch gap between them in a staredown.

If Show is 6'9 as some keep saying these days, Jordan should be able to look over the top of his head with ease.

@ChaosControl 6'2.5

I understand why you may put his peak at 7 foot, but 6'11.75 is more realistic, Him losing 4 or 3.5 inches over the time span of his career, just does not sit right with me. During his WCW days, He looks 7 foot max in wrestling boots, and 6'11.75 outside the ring. He maybe can wake up a 7 footer but his posture isn't definitely not A1, he would most likely be 7 foot for an hour or 2 at most.
JT said on 6/Jan/21
Big Show, Jordan Omogbehin and some other wrestlers Click Here Big Show is closer to the camera than Jordan.
James Hendrix said on 6/Jan/21
@ChaosControl 6'2.5 I personally just do not see a 7 footer, I see a straight and narrow, 6'11.75, I can see him being 7 foot early in the morning, before his regular posture takes a hold of him.

But as far as replacing 6'11.75, with 7'0, that can maybe seem a little bit of stretch. Big Show being 7'0 for maybe 2 or 3 hours before dropping down to 6'11.75 is maybe realistic, but as far as him losing height, him being 6'11.75 is way more realistic then him dropping 4 or 3 inches from 7 foot, in nearly 20 years.

7ft barefoot peak now around 6ft9.5 hip replacement and injurys have made him shrink a large amount around 2.5inches
James Hendrix said on 4/Jan/21
Big Show is a very easy. 1990s Big Show in WCW or WWE is 6'11.75, Seeing that he had the same features of Andre the Giant is what gave him his debut name "The Giant". Now, knowing that in ring he Wears a 1 inch boot lift, He would easily be 7 foot, Now let's say he gains weight around 1997, during the Attitude Era he was roughly down to 6'11, with that being said He was no longer as slim as he was giving that 7 foot and over illusion that some of us see, with Andre The Giant, and The Great Khali.

2002, Big Show was roughly 300 plus pounds, and also taking some agile moves at the time, with wrestling and weight, and his most of the time slouching posture His height could vary from 6'11 to 6'10.75. Big Show's girth at this time would give the same illusion his slimness would, Him gaining weight would add to his height so to speak as far as illusion. Big Show would lose his first inch, at 2009, where he was roughly his heaviest, and he may have hit the 380+ plus pound mark. He also began to lean on his right leg more often which can make you lose an inch or so.

From 2009 to 2011, Big Show was at his heaviest, losing maybe an inch and a half throughout the day, So I would say 6'11 range down to 6'10.5 due to girth, weight and continus back curves, and in ring moves.

During the 2013-2016 easily 3 years, He could have made his weight transformation, But due to all that weight he was carrying and Deterioration in his legs, and a hip surgery if I'm correct, can drop him down to 6'10 to 6'9.5 range. The compression on his spine and wrestling can take a toll on his size as you can see how he began to lose height throughout those years.

From 2016 to 2020, Big Show is a leaner person due to losing weight, Big Show's toll of slams, and weight took a toll on his height also. Big Show can now be seen from 6'10, maybe lasting about 3 or 4 hours before gravity and his frame drop him down to 6'9.5

With all that being said here are my guesses with barefoot and ring gear.

Peak barefoot:
Morning 7'0 (6:00am to 10:00am)
Evening 6'11.75 (12:ooam to 3:00pm)
Noon: 6'11 (6:00pm to 9:30pm)

Peak/In-Ring Gear:
Morning 7'1
Evening 7'0
Night 6'11.75

Middle Aged Height (30 to 40):
Morning 6'11
Evening 6'10.25
Night 6'10

Upper Middle Age (40 to 48)
Morning 6'10.25
Evening 6'10
Night 6'9.5

Hi Rob,

Happy Holidays to you.

What would you say is the lowest you would give Big Show at peak?
I personally think he was 7’0” in the evening barefoot, but I could see the possibility of 6’11.5” or 6’11 3/4”
Editor Rob
a 23 year old Big Show I doubt was under 7ft
Ben Bell said on 27/Dec/20
I see no evidence of Nash being taller than show.

Show’s and Matt Morgan are two guys who didn’t look their billed height to me when I saw them in person. Show was 03 and he looked like crap. Not what I’d expect 7ft to look like.
He’s certainly lost height.
If I had to say looking at all the pics and all the pics of other guys to the nearest inch I’d say 6’9. I have a family member who’s legit 6’7.5 and Show looks noticeably taller than him.

It’s a very different visual seeing a a guy with perfect a posture at 6’7.5 and a huge guy all hunched up and broken down at 6’9.
I wonder on a photograph or even seeing in person who would appear tallest.

I could actually see a peak WCW mid 90’s Giant being 7ft, he had great posture.
Today show’s knees bow in dramatically, his upper back is curved and he looks like a different person.
7’0 peak, 6’9 today.

Vincent Caleb said on 23/Dec/20
Idk, if Quinton is still 500 or more pounds then 1.5 isn’t impossible, but maybe 1.25 is what he loses. Show is over 100 pounds less, but the longer spine and thicker structure may have him lose more. Hafthor is also someone who loses 1.25ish at over 400 pounds.

@Chaos Control:
Those estimates definitely sound like a strong possibility. Wouldn’t put him under 6’9.5” today.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Dec/20
@Vincent
I doubt Big Show would lose less than someone like Quinton though. Show's an acromegalic, so he's naturally a bigger framed guy, so chances are that his spinal column and discs are bigger and thicker, even though he currently may weigh less than Quinton. Both may lose 1.25" in a day I'm guessing.
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 22/Dec/20
@Vincent he’s been announced at 383lbs recently, I could believe that, definitely leaner now... 7’1 out of bed peak and 6’11.75 low, 6’10.75 morning and 6’9.5 evening these days
Vincent Caleb said on 22/Dec/20
Depending on his current weight, even 1.25 inch height loss is possible during the day. A guy like Quinton Aaron who is 500 pounds is going to lose 1.5 inches easy. At his current height and weight, 1.25 is a good possibility.
Vincent Caleb said on 21/Dec/20
@Dred_:
But wouldn’t a 5.2 eye level put his head at more like 11 inches? If it really is 12 it would be at least 5.5 possibly 5.75 right? I’m not a head size expert so I’m not too sure, and I’m not arguing with you just curious.
Public Enemy said on 21/Dec/20
Peak 6’11 3/4
Current 6’9 3/4 (possibly 6’10 still if he stood ramrod straight for a measurement)

I think a man of his size could easily lose 1.25 inches during the day.

Every single picture of Show in the last few years has him looking about 6,9”.

Rah said on 16/Dec/20
The Big Show, is a very weak 6'9. He lost weight, and also height. I belive he began to lose height after 2002, and so on. When he had his first in ring confrontation with The Great Khali, he was closer in height, Khali back then was a strong 7'1, Big Show would be a very strong 6'11 3/4 during the time.

For some reason, I just can't see this fat dude as a 6'10 or 7'0 guy. This man is about 3 inches taller then Kane, flat. That's a weak 6'9, and maybe early in the morning He can measure a weak 6'10 for a good 4 to 5 hours, and lose an inch or so and be to around 6'9
62B said on 13/Dec/20
He doesn't really look super tall on his Netflix series. a big guy fore sure, but not anywhere near 7" today. To me even in his younger days he needed obvious lifts to pass for a 7'er.
Jimmy Lee said on 2/Dec/20
I feel as if Big Show is about 6'9 3/4, Which is really believable considering Wrestlers could be working a half inch lift inside their boots and an inch standing on their boot sole.

Which is what I always assumed for wrestlers such as The Great Khali, Big Show, etc.

But it has never been proven that they do, so I will say Big Show in ring, solid 6'10, and Big Show day to day outside of the ring, 6'9 3/4.

If you skip to the 40 second mark on the video when they are both standing well he can look at least 6’9.5” next to Kane, maybe 6’10”.

dude,i might be wrong but show is closer to camera.
FriedChicken said on 30/Nov/20
6'9.5 isn't impossible but that's the lowest I'd go tbh.
Jimmy Lee said on 30/Nov/20
I have noticed this cycle, is about the same as Andre The Giant. Andre lost height also, but would he be as short as Big Show is during his last and few WWF days. I still feel as if Big Show could be a very weak 6'10, or 6'9 1/4. Nash is not taller then show, I refuse to believe that until proven different, He may be a little under show, but not by much. As far as, Show's peak height, He had to have been 7 feet, or 6'11 3/4. During those days, He honestly had no eye to eye competition, So his lifts were not as thick as they could be now.

But as far as him and Nash Being the same height, I can see that, and also not see it.

Nash has a more straight posture, Big show is more down his back, slouching type dude.

Big Show standing straight as of 2020, would be 6'9 1/4, in wrestling boots, 6'11.

Impossible to determine anything from Undertaker farewell as camera angles were all over the place. I mean he looks 15 inches taller than 6 foot Jeff Hardy but obviously Wight has camera angle advantage Click Here

That's about best of Nash and Wight and even then it's not good but Wight is taller Click Here

That's probably best shot of whole thing buts it blurry. Shane the JBL to right, Hardy then Foley and Charles "Godfather" Wright to left of Paul Wight Click Here

Roderick said on 29/Nov/20
It's honestly impossible for Show to still be 6'10". He's simply not that tall anymore, you can tell just by looking at him with fans, walking around in crowds, and during the Undertaker farewell, he wasn't looking like a 6'10" guy at all.

Rob, downgrading Show to at least 6'9.5" would be more accurate I'd say, but I don't even think he's that tall.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Nov/20

Maybe not 0, but compared to something like 6'9.5" or .75", it might be lower.
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Nov/20

Nice pics you are posting. They always seem to actually be decent in camera angle and posture. Big Show can look shorter than this listing sometimes, but standing straight he is at least 6’9.5”.

He can look 6’9” flat sometimes, but if measured I think at least 6’9.5”.
Vincent Caleb said on 28/Nov/20
@Ressurection of Edward:
I’m not seeing how he looks that over listed in that pic. Maybe 6’9.5”, but when he stood really well with Joe manganiello it is hard to argue 6’9” flat. 6’9.5” is a good shout IMO.

@Roderick:
He is likely falling under the mark today, but it is not more than a fraction. 6’9” flat is too low. The damage wrestling does to the spine causes some wrestlers to walk and stand shorter than they may measure. In pics he can still look close to 6’10”

Jimmy Lee said on 27/Nov/20
I feel as if Big Show should stay as 6'10, and no less than. Big show does not stand straight all the time, He slouches and is often leaning on his legs and straightening the opposite, and it can be seen in multiple videos, pictures, etc. I feel as if Big show standing straight, with Kevin Nash He would have an inch or more on him.

If we examine the photos more closely, Kevin Nash is also wearing sneakers where as Big Show is wearing Dress shoes. (regarding the picture with Big Show and Nash standing face to face)

If we examine the picture with Big Show, Nash, and Taker. Big show is tilting downward by a little, and is also Closer to the Camera. Big Show could have more then an Inch on Nash, had they stood Side by Side. Nash being farther away from the Camera shows, gives him the advantage of LOOKING taller.

My personal opinion would be Big show is 6'10, weakly.
Roderick said on 27/Nov/20
There is 0% chance of 6'10".
Vincent Caleb said on 27/Nov/20
@ced:
I did not see any pictures there that indicate Nash being taller.
Szanki11 said on 27/Nov/20
Ced: Imo not really, Show is still probably 0.5 to 1 inch taller cuz of his bigger head. But Show is less than 3 inches taller than Taker, who is 6'6 max right now, So Show can't be 6'10.
Taker 6'6, Nash 6'8,25 Show 6'8.5 to 6'9 MAX.

@Resurrection of Edward:
Big show holds up very well next to Joe Manganiello, as pointed out by Robbe. Here is another picture that I don’t think Robbe has posted yet:
Click Here
Taking into account head size of Big Show, he looks very tall there. Show may even have a small camera disadvantage with a little tilt. Manganiello is no way any less than 6’4.5”, and in the double shot with Rob and Jenny he easily looks it. There are even more shots of them where Show can hold up even better. The pic with Kevin Nash is a bad picture, typical of Pierre. I have Show at 6’9.5” minimum, possibly 6’10”.

Canson said on 21/Nov/20
I doubt Shaq is 7’1”. Maybe he was able to get over 7’0 by a hair around lunch in his prime and he was only 7 flat but he does wear an orthotic which makes him look taller at times. Likely the case with the TNT measurement
Pierre said on 21/Nov/20
Yeah Shaq was standing next to a height gauge at around 7"2' in shoes,but apparently this height gauge could be a bit advantageous = here a guy measured 5"10' by his doctor(so 5"11' with 1 inch shoes) is nearly 6"0' mark by this height gauge and not around 5"11' mark Click Here Click Here .If the graduations are too short this means more you're tall more the height gauge in proportion will be generous.
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
@Pierre and Vegas: yea today Dirk may be taller but not in his prime (I doubt).
UndertakerFrank said on 20/Nov/20
I seen Shaq on another show stand by a Height Chart & looked 7ft 2 in Shoes So Shaq might be 7.5 or 7ft 1 barefoot lowest 7ft flat
NCL said on 19/Nov/20
Pause at 21 seconds: Click Here Shaq looks to be 7’2” to me in his shoes. Could that be wrong? Just the camera angle? Looks 7’2” in shoes here Click Here

I think he’s minimum 7’ barefoot, possibly 7’1”.

Big Show, on the other hand, I think is barely 6’10” now, maybe even closer to 6’9”. In addition to all the Shaq pictures, I’m having a hard time seeing more than a 6” difference with McIntyre, who’s probably between 6’4” and 6’5”, and Show probably has the footwear advantage: Click Here

However, I do think Show was a full 7’ when he was a young man.

Robbe said on 19/Nov/20
Dirk is closer to the camera in both pictures, anybody can see it. So i pass them.

I also pass this pic with Trace Adkins.

Click Here

Trace is listed at 6'6, but he looks more like 6'5. Yet Show looks close to 7ft with him, so there's something wrong with that pic. Show is not closer to the camera, but he's somehow favored there. Trace probably leaning backwards, and losing height.

Anyway, 6'8 is a joke for current Show. Like said, he howers around 6'9.5/6'10.

If Big Show's head is around 12in, like it most likely is, then his eyeline is 5.75in.

@Robbe: Vincent’s estimate could be as low as I could see him. I remember Christian and a few others guessed that and based on my estimate for Joe (6’4.5 afternoon) that could fit. He surely isn’t 6’8” though today. That explains why he doesn’t look 6’10 to some today

When you post pictures of Show, check his head size Lol Drew has bigger head than Show there. Means he is a lot closer to the camera. That was really a terrible pic, really.

Show with 6'4.75 Joe Manganiello.

Click Here

Bang on Show's eyeline. Hard to say where Joe's top of head is exactly due to his hairstyle, but probably a bit lower than drawed line. Show has minimum 5in eyeline, so 6'4.75 + 5 = 6'9.75. Most likely Show's eyeline is a bit more, so he looks more or less 6'10 there. Just like with that Sun reporter.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
Robbe said on 14/Nov/20
Shane's shoes here Click Here

About an inch heels. Front heel looks also pretty thick too. Show's shoes lookes slightly thicker, that's true. But anyway, Show doesn't look anywhere near 6'8.5 there either.

@Canson, yeah, he is always quick to remind about low angles, and being closer to the camera, but forgets those things when posting pics which supports his own narratives. But hey, that's the whole idea on this site, Lol :D

@Robbe: he’s an interesting poster but I like and respect Pierre. He’s a nice guy too. His methods are different. But By Interesting, meaning he’s different from others but we’re all different. Thats what makes the site as fun and interesting as it is. But as far as calling out the low camera angle and someone being disadvantaged or favored by a camera, that has to go both ways.

Lol if it isn’t advantageous (or shall I say) if it goes against the narrative, it’s best not to even bring the picture into evidence 😂 😂 and just play dumb lol. We’ve all been guilty of using pics to support the narrative although I’m a lot more careful now a days than I was years ago. But Even when you think you have the best picture possible, someone finds something wrong with it

And you’re right. I will say for basketball listings, I’ve definitely never seen 6’9 to 7’1 but I’ve seen a 6’9 range guy listed at 7’0”. Hakeem Olajuwon was. I doubt Hakeem was a full 6’10”. More 6’9.5 and that’s according to his teammate Mario Elie who said he’s closer to 6’9”. But yea Show looked over 6’10 with Shaq. If Shaq was a solid 7’0” peak, Show had to have at least been around 6’10.5”. Shaq claimed 6’11.75 too which means 6’10.25 is a possibility for Show at that stage but that’s probably a stretch (when he met Shaq). Today, I can see a bit (up to .5”) under 6’10” being a remote possibility but 6’10” flat is too.

Lol basketball players are lots of time listed no less than 2 inches taller than their real heights ,so argue Big Show was really 7"0' because he was listed 7"1' as a basketball player is a terrible argument in fact

That isn’t true at all. In fact, it’s very rare to be listed more than 2” above. But It varies case by case. Michael Jordan wasn’t listed 2” taller than he was barefoot. Jordan was 194-195 afternoon height and somewhere in the 196-197 (probably 196-196.5) range out of bed. If you think about it, the guys now a days are measured early morning so it’s technically not 2” above their listing. But Some players are only 1” below their afternoon listings. So some examples

Stephen Curry (listed 6’3) measured 6’2 early morning (6’1.5) afternoon

Kobe Bryant (RIP) 6’6 listing and 6’4.75 barefoot

Jordan my estimation is 6’4.5 barefoot (afternoon):6’5.25 out of bed and 6’6 listing as always in the pros

Draymond Green (debatable) but isn’t under 6’5 flat afternoon height. If his measurement was around an hour out of bed, Rob’s listing of 6’5.25 is accurate. To be fair, he can look that height with Paul Pogba and also 6’5.5 in some pics so the listing is probably ok. He was listed at 6’7” previously before the “wish we were official” measurements came out this past season. Now he’s listed 6’6”

Same with Klay Thompson

Then there are guys like Kevin Garnett and Kevin Durant who were listed at their barefoot heights

Technically, we use the afternoon standard here on this site but if they are measured in the morning, it is a legit measurement (although not a very accurate reflection of your true height). Therefore you may get a 6’3 guy who is listed 6’5 because he’s 6’3.5 in the early morning or 6’3 3/8 rounded to 6’3.5 and 6’4.75 in shoes. But he’s 6’3 in the afternoon. However, based on his measurement it’s only 1.5” difference

About Show's peak height, it's totally ridiculous to even suggest he was 6'9/6'10 peak, they don't list such heights at 7'1, as Show was listed when he played basketball. That's shoe height, so he was around 7ft. Maybe 6'11.5 if he played with 1.5in shoes. Could have been legit 7 footer also. Not over though.

But he has shrunk, as we all know. He howers around 6'9.5/6'10 nowadays. At military posture, still 6'10 i believe. Pity there's only one picture Show vs THor, where Show looks 4.5in taller, but angle is just terrible. Big Rob estimated Show was favored by 1.5in there.

@Pierre: why do you only bring up the low camera angle when the celeb you’re estimating looks taller than they do in your narrative? Your pics have the other celeb you’re comparing them to closer to the camera in many cases. There is no way Big Show was only 6’9” or 6’10 in his prime. Even with Shaquille O’Neal he looked over 6’10”. That’s a 1.5” difference between them. The pic was taken many years ago but unless we were to say that Shaq is 6’11.5 then Show would be over 6’10”.

Show with 6'8 Big Cass.

Click Here

Click Here

Looks around 6'11 there. I think there's too much fuss about Big Show's wrestling boots. They don't differ so much compared to other wrestlers boots. Show looks also barefoot noticeable taller than Akebono, as seen from the pic posted earlier.

Show can look 6'8-6'9 range many times, but it's often due to camera angle, and the fact he rarely stands straight. When he does, he is still around listed. Also, the idea he is wearing inner lifts in his wrestling boots is just crazy. So no need for downgrad Show. Well, maybe he's lowest is nowadays 6'9.5, in a bad day :D

Big Show was very close to 7ft peak. Here with 6'8 Akebono.

Click Here

Click Here

Picture is i believe from 2005. Both men likely still in peak. Big question is how much Show has shrunk in the past 15 years. Definitely no more than 2in. Most likely a bit less.

Big Show's head is about 11.5-12in i think, like shown in the chart.
Canson said on 5/Nov/20
That’s not a 5” difference with Show and Taker. Even giving Taker the extra 1/4 that Rob knocked off his peak that would make Show 6’11.5 tops. That’s 4” between them. Really Taker wouldn’t be 6’7.5 if Sid was 6’6.25. That was max 1” taller. Show could’ve conceivably been under 7’ peak height not over
Canson said on 5/Nov/20
@Danimal: Nash didn’t have 3-4” In that pic. Maybe you could argue 3” since Sid was 6’6.25 possibly. I buy his listing. Nash 6’9.25 maybe

Brian Grant has big head, and he is not under 6'8.

He is standing very relaxesd there with Alex Molden, who is not under 5'9. Why to look those terrible angled pics with McEnroe, when we have this perfect angle pic available.

Big Show is visible taller than Grant, so he can't be just 6'8.5 range. No way.

Its weird on this site tall people get downgraded from their real height and shorter people are given an inch sometimes 2 because you don't really know them and just give them average height its weird.
Robbe said on 2/Nov/20
Grant has big head, like 2in bigger than Alex Molden's, who has probably average 9in head.

Click Here

Why to look at those terrible angle photos with McEnroe, when there is much better angled photo with Alex. Grant is standing very relaxed there, and still hits the 6'8 mark.

Height chart i posted with Big Show vs Grant wasn't so bad actually. Maybe slightly Exaggerated. Big Show has no less than 5in eyeline, which also appears bang on in the chart. Anyway, i don't believe Show is really 6'11, but he aint so low as 6'8.5. Absolutely minimum is 6'9.5 in my opinion. My guess is still though 6'10. He looks that when standing tall.

Here are some screen caps from the opposite side of the arena when Shaq was in the ring with Big Show in 2009 Click Here

I guess a 2012 Big Show must have grown to 7’2” as he comes out around 4 inches shorter than Yao Ming………. Click Here

Robbe, you tilted the Hafthor/Richters picture 4 degrees Click Here which is too much. Plus, if you are going to use barefoot heights with the height ruler, the bottom of the ruler needs to start where the bottom of the person’s bare foot would be (e.g., ~ 1.25” above the ground if the person is wearing a standard tennis or dress shoe), not the bottom of the sole on the shoe. Otherwise, the scale of the ruler is thrown off.

According to the height chart, Big Show is 6'11.

Click Here

I put BG:s height at 6'7.5 there, with 5in eyeline.

Imo this scale is too generous = Big Show has a better posture than Brian Grant,he's even tiptoeing a bit in this pic,clearly he's stretching up and has a very good posture while Brian is streching down,by adjusting his size a bit for the pic next to the shortest man.Brian Grant is probably never 6"7.5' in this pic next to Big Show.Next to John Mc Enroe around 5"10'(not particularly very straight in the pic ) Brian looks in good posture and even here he looks hardly 6"7'. Click Here other= Click Here

And by this scale the lower head of Brian is around 5"8' and the top of his head around 6"7.5'that would mean his head size would be around 11.5 inches,that seams to me very unlikely.This means the graduations of this scale are too short and so the scale too generous for this reason too.

Here is Dirk Nowitski next to 7"0.25' Shaq (lots of times Dirk closer to the camera)= Click Here Click Here Click Here

He looks clearly shorter than Shaq.He's listed 6"11'/7"0' in web .Let's say he's 6"11.5'...

here is Dirk slouching a lot to the opposite side to the camera(so shrink a lot plus more distant to the camera than Big Show so Big Show has logically the advantage of the camera = Click Here .Dirk clearly dwarfs Big Show if both guys are standing in similar posture . Big Show by this comparison is never close to 6"11' or even close to the 6"10' mark.

Big Show is 6"8.5' absolute max by this comparison too.

I have no problem believing he was 7'0.5" before he experienced any height loss. Imo, Andre the Giant was about the same height (7'0.25") before he experienced any height loss. Like the Adren who has major surgeries, both of their heights were severely reduced due to the knife. In Big Show's case, he had hip replacement (you can see how much shorter his femur bone is today compared to the mid-late 1990's, as well as back surgery. He's at best 6'9" today. Andre had back surgeries, ankle and knee surgeries and became extremely hunched over, reducing his height to 6'9"-6'10" by the time he passed away in the early 1990's.

Kane: 6-7.25 peak, current 6-6 3/8

Did he really lose an inch or was it a claim or a morning height to an afternoon? I’ve never heard of that without a major physical injury. As for Grant, he looks 6’7.5ish next to Caron Butler and Lamar Odom along with Eddie Jones In the one photo. He’s not under 6’7”.

Rob, you need to upgrade Big Show's current and peak height based on the Brian Grant photo. He was measured 6'8 1/2" without shoes in pre draft measurements. Draft Express used to have it before they ruined their site.
This site still has it. Change it to imperial for the proper measurement.

Let's say John Mc Enroe is around 5"10'.If Brian Grant is 6"8.5' this means he's around 10.5 inches taller than John so comfortably a complete head(Brian's head does not look particularly big in this pic next to Big show and the shortest guy).That is not the case here,John is comfortably two inches above Brian's chin ... Click Here =both guys around same distance to the camera in this one

Big Show imo has a better posture than Brian,imo he try to stretching up (by tiptoeing a bit in the pic) while Briant stands in a very classic posture,plus Big Show's soles are looking bigger than Brian's soles.

Show has always been a posture guy.

There's no doubt he's lost height, but I think if he had a gun to his head and had to stand as tall as he physically could (military posture), he might surprise a few people even today. Look at the staredowns with Strowman after he slimmed down, in the few brief moments he really cranked himself out it could look a pretty big difference. Then when they go face to face he can go back to hunching.

--------------------
Nice find, that's what you get when you post real pictures of Big Show next to other tall people, instead of crappy comparison shots.

Big Show is clearly several inches taller than Brian Grant, who measured 6'8 ½" at the NBA pre-draft in 1994. He might've lost some height, though basketball players generaly manage to maintain most of their height even when they get older.

And no, Big Show isn't tippy toeing there. You need to raise both feet to gain extra height and his right foot is clearly flat on the ground.

@ 6"3' Julia = Insulting me won’t make Big Show and HHH bigger than they are next to Hafthor lol.You can continue to compare Big Show wearing wrestler shoes to other guys if you want.If I 'm an idiot then you probably need glasses ...

@Pierre Big Show is an acromegalic giant. He has much larger proportions than Hafthor. Big Show looks to easily be 6 inches taller than HHH and Show’s head is likely 10.5-11 inches. You are an idiot

You can explain me Big Show has a bigger head than Hafthor,I know this.Yeah by this comparison he's really struggling with 6"9' and even with 6"8.5'....
