How tall is Big Show

Big Show's Height

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".

But you saw, a lot time ago, Big Show with Shaq outside the ring right?
Well there Big Show is at least 2" shorter, shocking eh?
Kanter is, IMHO, not taller than 206cm.
If Show was taller, he was because of his shoes probably.
The guy outside the ring is shorter than you think IMHO.

@Vegas What you posted is absolute garbage -- Big show clearly closer to the camera w/ a laughable, funky angle. That has to be the most ridiculous, pathetic attempt I've ever seen in my life... Stop embarrassing yourself. Wow. Seriously...? Thanks for a good laugh; I needed that.

There is zero chance HHH comes that close to big shows eyeline, remember Show has full head on 5'11 1/2 Dean Cain so HHH is 6 inches taller than Cain....

That's closer to reality from same night Click Here

Ron Reis’ dad was a center on Univ of Cincinnati and was listed as 6’10” back in the early 60s. Reis was listed as 7’1” at Santa Clara so I doubt he’s any taller than that.

Click Here Kowalski is probably around 6’3” here; Studd 6’6”.
Click Here Looks like 6’4” Big Bossman to Reis’ left. Macho may be in cowboy boots. I probably left a few out but Giant Gonzalez, Max Palmer, Jon Harris (Silo Sam) and Kurt Zehe may have been the only wrestlers taller than Reis.

The top of Benoit's head is at the bottom of Reis' neck. Depending how big Ron Reis's head is, I'd say he looks about 15 inches taller.

Brothers aren't always that close. Pair of brothers playing for my local team, one is 5'10, the other 6'3
Sotiris Gravas said on 26/Feb/19
@RoelC I'm assuming the Santa Clara 7'1" for Reis was in shoes. Also, colleges are notorious for inflating heights. Usually brothers are close in height... funny how his brother was only 6'8".

Sotiris, that pic of legit 7’1” Ron Reis & Big John Studd would be great for some André/Studd/Reis mashup photos for height comparisons . Please use 1984-1986 Andre vs Studd feud photos? Or even the 1983 Japan Tour photos of André & Studd (Studd wore a mask). By the 1989 mini-feud with Studd, Andre had lost over a full inch in height..if not more.
Canson said on 24/Feb/19
@Christian: to add to that, athletes being measured early morning will never be that measurement later in the day which is what the site is based on. That being said when someone says they grew it’s even worse being the listing for a lot of them is not even the most appropriate listing for site purposes. It should be around half inch less than their combine. I’ve even seen some where combine measurements are 3/4” inch or more taller than what they would measure later on
Boxingfan said on 24/Feb/19
I remember listening to an interview with Ron Reis on YouTube where he was asked who was taller between him and Big Show and in typically honest fashion for Reis he replied "It depends on who is wearing lifts" :D He did go on to say something along the lines of "I think I had about one inch, maybe two on Paul, but he was much bigger than I was overall"

I do have to admit though that Big Show isn't really looking much past 6ft 9 these days, I think his posture just isn't great so he makes him look a little taller than he his. 6ft 10 now and 7ft peak sounds about right, but isn't it funny how Big Show has followed in Andre's footsteps not just as a wrestler but now as a big man who has lost height and now people try to "break the myth" and claim they were only around 6ft 10 to begin with.

I know that Dave Meltzer likes to claim that Andre was only ever 6ft 9 and that is just an absolutely absurd statement when you think he was measured in his autopsy to be 6ft 9 at the time of his passing. So a guy that massive in his 40s, who went through multiple back surgeries, never lost any height throughout his life? C'mon Dave.

There are pictures of Big Show where he deadass looks as low as 6'7" but others were he looks over 7 feet. You can't always go by one picture. He is MINIMUM 6'9 1/2", most likely 6'10" or 6'11"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Feb/19
@Canson
I've never noticed that until now, but excellent point. The hypocrisy and double standards are clear here. They're the same type of people who'll then say that an athlete has grown just because their measurement's lower than what they wanted it to be. They are the true definition of an "upgrader".
viper said on 18/Feb/19
Rasheed Wallace measured 6-9.75. I think he looks similar physically to Ewing.

They also have small feet for their height.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Philip: I can say that I don’t agree with all of his estimates and I call them out all the time but then again you have other guys who always say that someone is taller than Rob lists them yet nobody says a word. And I tend to estimate some celebs lower than Rob if he hasn’t met them because I use my normal low for my height 6’4.25. Sotiris at least tries to back it up and at least he isn’t bashing others about their estimates but I agree that many of the estimates seem low. However, he was also one that had Darryl Strawberry at 6’6 when he admitted he’s 6’5” and his booking when arrested is only 6’5”

@Sotiris: 6’5.25 may be an impression due to his poor posture. He still looks 6’6” when he stands straight but I doubt he’s over that. Anywhere around 6’6” is good
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: what’s even crazier is that people are telling him he downgrades yet people are accusing him of lying up about his height meaning they’re trying to downgrade him. And 6” is the proper definition of downgrading. Not saying someone is about an inch shorter than listed
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: I’ve gotten the same and I agree it’s childish. But if we look around hard enough (you probably know without me even saying anything) that there are a few posters who always want celebs to be taller than Rob lists them or provide egregiously high estimates for them. Yet nothing is ever said about banning them
Philip McMullin said on 17/Feb/19
Canson dude, his guesstimates are preposterous.
Canson said on 17/Feb/19
Downplaying someone’s height like Sotiris is being accused of is no worse or better than wanting to make them taller than they actually are. I don’t see why it’s only said when someone thinks a celeb isn’t as tall as listed but never when you have guys here inflating celebs all day
viper said on 16/Feb/19
Ewing measuring 6-9.75 I can buy.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
@Canson
There's a poster here (I don't wanna mention any names) who said that my guesses suck and have called for me to be banned as well, just because they disagreed with my estimates. It's really childish and petty if you think about it. I've been a poster on this site for years and I've disagreed with a lot of posters and even had heated arguments with some, but not once have I ever called for someone to be banned.
rawdshaq said on 16/Feb/19
That's one picture of Big Show @Sotiris where he looks unusually short. First off, there are 1000 other times Big Show and Triple H have gotten photos together, and Big Show looks 6'10" - 6'11" in all of them but that. Your pictures are designed to make Big Show look as short as possible. He was listed as 7'1" in high school dude, he was at least 7 feet at peak. As for Undertaker, his forehead is huge, and his hat makes him look way shorter. He can easily be 6'6" today and the picture with Brosofdestruction proves it.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Feb/19
@Canson Thanks for being the classy gentleman that you are.

@Dan Trojan Thanks to you as well for defending my honor, dude. :)

We can all agree to disagree and have fun guessing...
Philip McMullin said on 16/Feb/19
Sotiris Gravas Obsessed with you?! ahahah alright then...I think you like downplaying heights because you know it'll get a reaction...big show is still 7 to 8 inches taller than that Greene guy
Dan Trojan said on 16/Feb/19
Average heighter there's no reason to get on sotiris's case you may not agree with his opinion hell i don't half the time but he is entitled to his opinion just like everyone else on here so don't get so offended i admit i used to but like i said it's his opinion and he's entitled to it
Canson said on 16/Feb/19
Big Show is not 6’11 today. I agree that 6’9.5 is very possible but at the other end of the spectrum the highest I can see is 6’10” which is very realistic. He would likely edge the Undertaker by about 4”
Canson said on 16/Feb/19
@Philip: Sotiris has already posted pics of himself and he obviously is extremely tall in those pics. He’s definitely not 6’1” and he does in fact look 6’7”. I personally do not agree with all of Sotiris’s estimates but You can’t make those type of false accusations against someone just because you don’t agree with him or don’t “approve” of his estimates. That’s insulting and for no reason whatsoever. All because you don’t agree with his estimates? That’s ludicrous. And what has Sotiris ever said to you that was negative? And insisting that Rob should ban him is no better as this is Rob’s site and this is a free site. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion. You have guys here that inflate everyone. If you look closely enough you will see exactly who I am talking about. Yet I don’t see anyone asking Rob to ban them nor do I see them catching the same type of heat that Sotiris is catching here. It is sad that you all are behaving this way. That almost translates to because he’s insinuating that a celeb is not as tall as they’re listed or claim that he’s committing a crime. If you don’t agree with his estimates then just say that but don’t go accusing the man of not being as tall as he claims when you really have no proof about that. That’s a personal attack. You’re simply saying it to attack and be hateful against him and calling someone a troll as well. If you all want to call him that just because he doesn’t believe a celeb is as tall as listed or don’t agree with him then Sotiris can easily call all of you fanboys but he doesn’t because he has class. Sotiris actually has made some very good estimates on other celebs to his credit.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Feb/19
@ced Nash was 100% never more than 6'9" (Tyler Mane was never more than 6'8"). Undertaker was never taller than 6'6.5" Sid Eudy, and Kane was never taller than Taker (he just wore big heels to look taller). As for Big Show, he was at least 6'10". As for being taller, definitely never more than 6'11". Same goes for Andre. Rob has Sid Eudy's peak height at 6'6.5", yet he has Taker's peak height at 6'7.5", which makes no sense seeing as Sid edged out Taker by 0.25". If Sid Eudy was really 6'7" peak, then Taker was at the most 6'6.75". He was never 6'8". Just a reminder, here's 6'7" Kevin Love (not NBA-listed 6'10") next to an obviously 6'5" Taker... Click Here How anyone can look at this photo and still say Taker's 6'6" is absurd. And no, it's not poor posture. At the very most, Taker might still be 6'5.25" b/c of his big head.


Another reminder: Triple H is around 6'1" now. Guess where that leaves Big Show...?

@Average Heighter As for Odell Hodge, there's a good chance he was measured early in the morning w/ shoes on, putting his barefoot height at maybe 6'7.5". Also, Show is in his big heels. Was Show at least 6'10" in the early '90s...? Yes. Is he more than 6'9" now. IMHO, no. Again, it's just my opinion. If you don't agree, you don't have to go crying into your pillow over it. Accept it and move on w/ your life. As for my height, dissenting posters like you seem to bring it up all too often. I, on the other hand, do not. Get it together, bro.
Philip McMullin said on 15/Feb/19
@rawdshaq dude, youre bang on! Soritis claims hes 6ft7 but hes probably only 6ft1 who's dreaming! I think Sortis should post proof on here that hes as tall as he says he is! Rob you need to ban Soritis from posting on this site hes a little troll who clearly knows NOTHING about height
rawdshaq said on 15/Feb/19
The lowest I would ever argue for Big Show is 6'9 1/2". Personally, I think hes a solid 6'11". Anything below 6'9 1/2" is a joke
Canson said on 14/Feb/19
@Viper: they need to check the height measurements out. Those likely have some of the same. I likef the way the military used to do it best. Have them run, etc before measuring so that the player is closer to their low and also have them go bare feet no socks

In 1996 Big Show (The Giant) was easily 4 inches taller than 6'9" Odell Hodge, if not more.
Even without the footwear advantage in Big Show was easily strong 7'.

p.s.@Sotiris I don't know what the problem you had with Big Show. There's no way he is only 6'9" or even 6'9" as you insisted today. And what's the point you keep mentioning your 6'7" height here? Seems to me one day you want to claim you're taller than Big Show lmao
Canson said on 13/Feb/19
@Viper: he claimed 6’9.75. Robert broome said he looked 6’9 and change in person so it’s beluevable. I doubt he’s ever been more than 6’10 however

@sotiris, what would say were the peak heights for Show, Kane, Nash, Taker?

Back when Rodman came to WCW, Nash and Show towered over him. I cant imagine if Nash was really 6’9.5 and Show 6’11, then Taker had to have been 6’8, and Kane definitelt was a half inch taller than Taker, so that would have put him at 6’8.5..

Would you say this is correct?
rawdshaq said on 12/Feb/19
I just watched some good old 1995-1996 Big Show WCW. No doubt he was 7 feet tall. Today he is 6'10" - 6'11" range.

@Sotiris: All of those guys have heads that are around 9.75” or above imho. I’m not good with gauging head sizes and I’ll admit that.

As for Pierce he could be 6’5.5-6’6 imho. Mickie met him and thought he was 6’5 3/8 or 6’5 1/4 but conceded he may have had footwear advantage on him. With 6’4” Tom Brady in the pic I posted he looked more a weak 6’6” which is how he looks with Garnett. Another poster Bobby3342 has balled with Ray Allen and put him around 6’3.75 as Bobby is my size 6’4.25 (193-194cm) and that indicates half inch difference between he and Ray. That’s about how Ray looks next to rashard lewis. It’s close to 5” and that’s if Rashard really is that tall. He can look just a solid 6’8 or 6’8.25 to be honest. Ray may only be 6’3.5. But I think 6’3.75 barefoot. He doesn’t have a pre draft but common sense says that if he’s 6’5 barefoot he wouldn’t be listed at that he’d be listed 6’6 or 7. Bill Russell May still be the full 6’9” but 6’8.5 is possible in his 80s.

As for Olajuwon 6’9.5 is possible. Ewing measured 6’9.75 at one point but I don’t rule out 6’10” either. But no higher. I mentioned before that some people I knew saw Ewing in college at Georgetown and said he didn’t look more than 6’10”. Another poster named Robert Broome said Ewing was his neighbor and said he’s 6’9” and change on another page. As for Yao you can see my comment below. That pic that was used with Mutombo has a tilt and Yao is favored as a result. It’s not any different than Mutombo being only 2” taller than Russell in another picture. It’s just that people here use what is convenient for the argument that they’re making. Yao said himself that he’s 7’3.75 and coincidentally he’s shorter than Shawn Bradley who measures both 7’5.5 and 7’6.25. Yao looks somewhere in the 7’4 range. We can’t take what the Rockets said seriously about him supposedly measuring that barefoot. It was likely a shoe measurement as they always pumped up Yao’s height when he first came into the league. He wasn’t as tall as Bradley or Muresan tho. For Mark Eaton. You mean 7’3.75. I think he was 7’3 or so all along and probably 7’2” range today

@Rawdshaq: Sotiris does not downgrade “every” celeb on the site. I could go to pages where he does not and could go to references to other celebs that don’t have pages where he has actually inflated them out of not knowing how tall they are. Example Darryl Strawberry he claims to have met and says he thought he was 6’6” when he admitted he’s 6’5 and has the billing when arrested. So to say he downgrades “every” celeb means he has to have downgraded every celeb he’s ever mentioned. And as far as Taker and Kane not everyone who meets them says they’re 6’7”. Ali Baba met Taker and placed him in the 6’6 range. Likely was 6’7” at his peak if not a hair over that at 6’7.25 at a low perhaps. And while the poster who posted the pic with Taker I’ve always said that Taker is worst case 197 cm range and best case 6’6 flat today it does support that. However, the pic is even inconclusive because we can’t accurately determine how much difference is between them

rawdshaq said on 9/Feb/19
@Sotiris Gravas Dude I don't know why you downgrade every singe wrestler on this site. There is a new picture posted of Undertaker that proves he is at least 6'6" today. Previously yes, I thought he was 6'5 1/2", but there was a guy who had a photo with Undertaker who is 6'3 1/2" barefoot and Undertaker had 3 inches on him. Also Big Show and legit 7 footer Dirk had a picture together and Big Show was very similar in height to him, although Dirk was leaning but Show is definitely not 6'9".

The man had also claimed that Kane was an inch taller than Undertaker. Again, I had thought Kane was 6'5", but if he was an inch taller than Undertaker, then Kane is still easily a 6'7" dude.

I've learned that you can't really look at pictures to determine height all the time, you have to meet the person. Nobody who has met Kane or the Undertaker said they were as low as 6'5". They always claimed they were 6'7" at LEAST. Next time you are walking with your friends, analyze the heights of each other. I am apparently only 5'8 3/4" (I thought I was 5'10", lol) and in pictures I can look similar in height to my 5'5" wife (she doesn't wear heels often).
Canson said on 8/Feb/19
@Sotiris and JT: that really just goes to show that camera angles can affect how someone looks. Just as JT is saying about Mutombo being at least 4” shorter than Yao, I could easily say that a present day Bill Russell who is probably only 6’9 flat today is only 2” shorter than Mutombo and that Mutombo is 6’11”. He’s not tho. Mutombo at his peak was probably close to 7’1” at a low if not the full thing. That still doesn’t mean that Yao is definitely 7’5”. He’s clearly over an inch shorter than Shawn Bradley who measures 7’5.5 and 7’6.25. The number is likely in between or 7’5.5 for his normal measurement and the 7’6.25 likely morning since someone that size would vary

@Canson Question: what head size would you give for Alonzo, Shaq, Show, and Andre? The thing is, I still don't believe an acromegalic head instantly means that all of the length of said skull is added height atop the spine. Some of that is only the jawbone hanging significantly lower than other ppl... like what we saw w/ Andre.

@Sotiris: yes I’ve been saying Mourning was 6’8 for the longest time and that proves it. A peak Magic I have around 201cm and a coworker of mine met him probably in the last 10 years and said magic looked a solid 6’7” at best. I don’t rule out having lost maybe 1/4”. Zo admitted to only being 6’8 before and I posted the clips previously. I could buy 6’8” and change but no higher. That means that guys like Ewing and Olajuwon aren’t as tall as everyone makes them out to be. I played rec league with a couple guys who are a bit older than me and they went to Georgetown with Ewing and said he’s at absolute most a barefoot 6’10”. One said that Mourning is only 6’8 as well and the other 6’8-6’9”. Ewing was supposedly measured 6’9.75” so that adds up. Olajuwon is said to only be 6’9” by Mario Elie when he played with him. The most I could buy for either is a full 6’10” for Ewing and 6’9.5 for Olajuwon but really Olajuwon and Dwight Howard are very similar. In some pics wheee the tilt is in Dream’s favor he looks taller. I’d say he’s 6’9-6’9.5. Pierce is around Taker’s current size. 6’5.5-6’6” today. I don’t rule out the full 6’6” but I don’t rule out the weak 6’6 either. I would give him more like 197-197.5. He Doesn’t look as tall as Carmelo who is 198-199 and Mickie said in person he’s likely only about 2” maybe a bit more taller than he is. Mickie said he may have had footwear advantage but that 197 range is possible for him as opposed to 196

@rawdshaq Look up man there are some quotes from Big Show: Always been a little over 7 feet tall
and "I'm 7 foot and Andre was about 7ft 1, 7ft 2" and "Actually I am seven feet tall.

IF he was 7ft1 he would have claimed it for sure but he claimes to be a little over it,and 7ft on the dot so yeah,u can rule out 7ft1,or 2 if he measured it was in the morning in shoes.

I found something interesting. When Big Show played basketball he was listed as "7-1" and that was when he was 18-19. In WCW he was actually advertised as high as 7'5" so do you guys think a 7'1" - 7'2" peak for Big Show was possible? I stopped growing when I was 20 so maybe Big Show grew another inch after 18-19 to become 7'2"? There is no evidence that proves he was that height but can it be a possibility? I know most wrestling businesses inflate heights by 2-3 inches so maybe he was 7'2", then upgraded to 7'5"? I don't know, just throwing out ideas.

Love and Lebron’s height difference varies from picture to picture. In some Love is taller but others Lebron is or they’re the same height. Based on what I see Love isn’t more than 6’7-6’7.5tops. Dan Majerle said he’s only 6’7” as well.

@Sotiris: agree on Klay Thompson. I’d say he may drop to 6’5 3/8 at a low. Draymond Green is said to only be 6’5 by Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry so it’s possible he’s a flat 6’5” since Thompson edges him out in some pics by a CM

That would depend on whether Show was legit 7'0" at the time of that photo. If he was 6'10" like he's listed here, then that would make that soldier only 6'1" range. Plus the soldier on the right is much taller, he'd be like 6'6" if Show's 6'10".

@Sotiris Gravas

That pic you posted of the Big show and that soldier demonstrates in my opinion he can easily hit 6'10+. Firstly the soldier has hair, the Big show is bald. That alone can add 1- inch incrementation, so if the soldier is 6'8 without the hair than with it he might me 6-9 range, and then + the footwear maybe another inch give or take half an inch. Now this is only if he's actually 6-8. And we don't know if either one has a distinct footwear advantage over the other. However, neverless, even with the hair, Show looks minimum 2 inches taller possibly even three and they're posing in the same angle so it's not like there's an altered or distorted camera angle. Either ways, i think show in shoes is still close to the 7 foot mark and barefoot i feel it's still safe to aay he can stretch to at least 6'10. I would personally peg him at 6'10.5 (give or take a 1/2 inch or so). The same height that Rob had him listed at previously.

Sotiris Gravas said on 31/Jan/19
@Canson I hear you, dude. I actually did previously post better pics of Klay and his dad. The only reason I put 6'5.75" was so that ppl could check out the combine measurement online. Perhaps I should have specified the actual height, the way I do w/ guys like 6'7" Kevin Love. That being said, Big Show did not look taller than Mychal Thompson, at least not from the angle in that pic, which lends itself to my not believing Show is more than 6'9" now.


@FBMC The reason I juxtaposed that soldier w/ Mychal Thompson was to show how Show looked next to one 6'8" guy vs. another. Angles can be deceiving, w/ Thompson actually looking taller than Show in that pic, at least IMHO.


@Ozzy LOVED that pic of Yao and Love.

@Sotiris: I doubt Klay is 6’5.75 at a low. Almost no NBA player measures the combine height later in the day. They’re almost always early morning these days. At times Klay edges Draymond by maybe a CM but at times it’s hard to see a difference. I would believe Draymond to be 6’5” flat to 6’5 1/8 and Klay 6’5 1/4-1/2 perhaps.

By the way: here is a better picture with Klay and Mychal

Mychal Thompson is still at least 6’8” today. Maybe his peak was a full 6’9” but doubt higher than that. You shouldn’t use pictures that favor one person. By that logic someone could say Klay is 6’3 or that Mychal is 6’11

I didn't see that picture, but of course i cant exclude 6'10 for him totally.

I dont know what you think about, but seems that from when there are social networks and , as consequence, sharing of pictures of any kind, many wrestlers (and not only) looks a bit different compare to early 2000s.

But, Even if sometimes pictures generate more confusion than solutions, i would say that almost all those guys listed as "giants" are in reality are "very tall".
And all the wrestlers listed as " very tall" are simply tall guys.

In the end , in the 90s early 2000s was easier overestimate the height of someone only from tv. Now is the opposite, and probably its more believable.

@JT: I doubt KD measured right out of bed. If anything an hour after or two hours when he got to practice. My guess is that Boogie is 6’9” flat since his early morning was 6’9.5 and that KD is slightly over 6’9”. He didn’t look as tall as Deandre Jordan who was 6’9.75 at the pre draft and has 4” on Draymond Green who was said to be 6’5” by Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry. 6’10.75 may be in shoes earlier in the day or even later in the day meaning 6’9.5 or 6’9.25 if earlier. They make him 6’11” just to make his shooting more impressive and to keep up with the others who are overlisted. He isn’t as tall as Lamarcus Aldridge who is 6’10” range

miller said on 18/Jan/19
Canson i think kevin durant is 6.9 1/2
Lebron is 6.7 flat
big show is diffcult to judge
rawdshaq said on 17/Jan/19
Sotiris I don't know what you are thinking but if you are 6'7" and a 5'8" guy comes 1 inch under your chin, then Big Show can easily be 6' 10" or 6' 11" there. Kevin Durant is 7 feet tall with his basketball shoes on, which means Big Show can easily be 6' 10" with Lebron. I don't know why you want to downgrade Big Show so much...
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Miller: my guesses on the two.

Lebron solid 6’7 max maybe 6’6.75. As I mentioned Melo is max 6’6.25 maybe even a hair less. But no less than 6’6” flat

KD 6’9.25 max. He’s not as tall as Deandre Jordan and it’s a noticeable CM difference if not 1/2”
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Lebron is not slouching that badly in the pic. He also may have a footwear advantage. We cannot see their feet. Today Show may be a weak 6’10 but back when Show and Durant had their pic he was an easy 6’10 still like Rob lists him. I’d bet money that Show doesn’t have as good a posture as Lebron if both tried to stand as tall as possible
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Phenom89: but with Kevin Durant who really still is 6’9-6’9.5 range Show was easily an inch or close to a full inch taller than him. Show was every bit of 6’10” in that picture

@Miller: while KD may be a hair over 6’9 it isn’t as much as you may think. He’s still closer to 6’9 than 6’10” at a low. I think the initial listing Rob had 6’9.25 was better than 6’9.5. But you’re right Show had to still be 6’10” when he was next to KD
Phenom89 said on 17/Jan/19
Good picture the one with LeBron, there Big show is not even 6'9.
miller said on 16/Jan/19

it is possible that Big Show is under 6.10 but your pictures are just biased too make Big Show as short as possible.

Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@rawdshaq: everyone loses height. If you measure from when you wake up out of bed in the AM and do so when you come home from work or school you will definitely lose height. Rob at 5’8” loses 1/2-3/4” today and a full 3/4” during his prime as do most people here
Public Enemy said on 12/Jan/19
Peak 6’10 3/4
Current 6’9 3/4
rawdshaq said on 10/Jan/19
I decided to test this height loss theory for myself. I am the exact same height the entire day.

When people look at Big Show pictures they compare eye level too much, he has a huge pointy head , he's probably a legit 6' 10" today. He could also have 7 feet as his peak.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
6’5 range possible for Undertaker but it’s upper 6’5 range meaning he’s essentially a weak 6’6” at worst. Someone measuring that size would likely claim 6’6” even if it’s rounded up slightly. I don’t even rule the solid 6’6” completely out as he never stands his tallest and didn’t when he was younger and taller either. By the way he did say that he used to be 6’10 in the caption on his page. I doubt that. It’s fathomable that he measured 6’8” or close to it early in the morning and with boots he could get to something like 6’9.5 in the right pair of boots. It adds up when he said he’s only 6’9” now and then followed up with 6’8/6’9” if he still measured around 6’7” in the morning years later. He claimed his boots just like Hogan did
Phenom89 said on 9/Jan/19
I want also say that when someone here says " if you downgrade Taker you have to do the same with all the others" yes its exactly like this.
Big show now is not taller than 6'9 range and we know there are 3,5 inches difference with Taker.
Triple H is not taller than 185 cm. And we know there are 4(maybe more) inches difference with Taker.
Randy orton for me is less than 6'4.
Lesnar 6'2 max. Sometimes seemed only 3 inch, 3,5 inches, shorten than Taker.
Kane, with out ridicolous boots, is not taller than taker.
And take in consideration that taker has the eye level of a 6'4 guy, that confuse people.
Btw everything seems to prove Taker is 6'5 range.
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
@Christian: yea my usual is 3/4” on a normal day. A hair over 6’5 out of bed and a hair over 6’4.25 later on. It only gets to 1/4” if I’ve been on my feet for maybe an extra half hour or so than usual or go to the gym

@RP: yea I’m not heavy myself only about 220 lbs and I lose a solid 3/4-2 cm per day. I think it’s also based on the proportions of the person and how tall they are. Taller guys have potential to lose more.

@ Canson...correct
I myself @ 220-223 lbs lose 3/8” from 7am to 7pm.
7am: 5’11-1/8”
7pm: 5’10-3/4”
Most men average 1/2” drop from early morning height to late evening height. Lighter younger men typically 1/4” & older heavier men up to 3/4” ...really heavy men with back issues can lose a full 1” during a long day on their feet. I know on very heavy leg days at the gym, when I do heavy full squats...I’ve lost a full 1/2” before. Just out of curiosity once after reading about daily height loss (on this page actually) I did a 7 day week long test/case study on myself. Measuring barefoot at 7am (one hour out of bed) & then again barefoot @ 7pm (after work & gym). Everyday I was 5’11-1/8” morning & 5’10-3/4” evening. Except on heavy leg day, that particular day, I actually dropped down to 70.625” (5’10-5/8”) humans like Big Show & Andre probably lose a full inch during the day when on their feet all day or during match days. Both guys at their peaks were 7’0” to 7’0-1/4” morning & 6’11” to 6’11-1/2” evening...IMO. Looks like both of them settled to 6’10”-ish by their mid 40’s from carrying around 400-500 lbs of body weight for 15-20 years.

@Sotiris: Ben is taller than Eli and Brady. His combine measurement was actually 6’4 7/8 not 3/4. 6047 is 6’4 7/8. He would likely not be less than 6’4.5 if that’s the case. But looks similar to Cam Newton. I do agree about Lafell and Brady being 6’2 and 6’4 as well as Snoop at 6’3.5. When someone assuming it’s an accurate measurement is 6’4 7/8 they would only lose 3/8 to 1/2 if an early morning measurement. Some may be 1/4” while others 3/4 if they have a high variance

This big guy reminds me of Jackson Galaxy sometimes, who is himself a huge 6ft2 and simply towers over the average cat owner he meets! Big Show would tower over Jackson - and I would be laughing in disbelief because that would truly be a first!

In all honesty, Big doesn't look old enough to have lost two whole inches. He can have 7ft for his peak and 6ft10 for these days.

@Miller: I don’t go off of what Rob lists them and in the pic with Pique we can’t see anything. I doubt he’s taller than Pique. Kobe and Barkley have at least a full inch on harden and both are under 6’5”. Also with Trevor Ariza that is over a 3” difference. Harden got measured early morning tho so it makes sense. Every measurement since 2009 is early morning

Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
@Rising: Harden is a morning measurement. Max 6’3.5. He’s about an inch maybe 3cm taller than Westbrook. With Ewing however I have 7-8” between he and John Starks. I have Rodman at 6’6 or 6’6.25 today. Magic at 6’7” max and Rock at 6’2” flat. I do agree that Crawford is a legit 194cm guy and KD likely measures at a low. Crawford and Kobe are very similar to the point where I would say Kobe fits his 6’4.75 for sure.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Dec/18
@Rising

That phrase doesn't mean anything. Seth Rollins claimed he's "6'2 on a good day" but obviously he's nowhere near that. There are lots other of celebs who inflate an inch and then say "on a good day".
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Dec/18
@Sotiris: I agree Mourning only looks 6'8.5" in that pic for some strange reason, but it doesn't look like he's tip-toeing and he looks over 6'9" recently with Bosh: Click Here And Howard has better posture in that Olympic photo. The 2007 all-star pic is about as good a pic as I've seen of the two and 6'10.25" Bosh has more than an inch on Howard since Dwight doesn't even reach his hairline. Wade is clearly below Mourning's eyes in every pic so Mourning looks comfortably over 6'8" with Wade. Rob has Rock at 6'2.5" current and struggles to even reach the very bottom of Mourning's nose despite a camera advantage(standing in front with a low angle). Mourning looks much taller with Rock than 6'7.5" Magic. I doubt Rodman is 6'6" flat. He can look 6'7" with Cena and Trump so the lowest I buy is 6'6.5". Phil Jackson still looks at least 6'7" with Kobe.

6'11" is too low for Robinson and especially Pau Gasol. Pau is minimum 7'0" and Dirk has to be around 6'11"(see below with Durant). Ewing looked as tall as Oden while Robinson is a little taller. There's no way Dwight would be 2" taller than Mourning. I'd be somewhat surprised if he was taller at all. Jamal Crawford is barely shorter than Kobe: Click Here so his 6'4.5" measurement wasn't too early and you saw how Ewing dwarfed him. Olajuwon is taller than Howard himself and Ewing is taller than Olajuwon. I agree Durant is nowhere near 6'10.75" barefoot, though. We'd have to upgrade quite a few heights to fit that.

@JT: When do you think Durant grew? He still looked at least a couple of inches shorter than Dirk in his 4th season: Click Here He didn't look taller than 6'9" with 6'4" James Harden, before his 5th season: Click Here though he now looks about 3.5" taller than Klay Thompson and 4" taller than Draymond Green, imo.
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
@JT: I think if he has grown it’s to not taller than Rob lists him here 6’9.5. He’s still shorter than Deandre Jordan in a pic

@Sotiris: I think Mourning if anything may be a hair over 6’8” but not as high as 6’9”. 6’8.25 or so may be ok. I know someone who has met Wade and he himself 6’2” said Wade is about 1/2” to 1” taller and he said he’s 6’2 1/2-6’3 without shoes on. That almost lines up with him saying he’s 6’4” on a good day. Likely that his actual measurement is 6’2.75 barefoot. A guy who is legitimately over 6’3” wouldn’t be directing that kind of attention to that and neither would his coach Erik spolestra or Otis Smith Orlando’s GM that have also said he’s “6’4 on a very very good day or a great day”. I don’t get as tall of an impression from Wade as I do Bradley Beal who I believe has actually grown. He was 6’3.25 when drafted (early morning) so likely just a weak 6’3” at the time. Today he looks 6’3.5 imho at a low meaning he would probably get 6’4” at the combine today

Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Dec/18
@Canson: That first pic is too bad of an angle. You can't accurately judge height from a photo like that. Dwight looks much taller than Bosh there and that's not the case: Click Here The second photo is the best of the 3 and it does look near 2", but Kobe is closer to the camera in the 3rd one. But my point is, why just consider the ones where it looks closer to 2" and ignore the ones where Kobe looks an inch max taller? Wouldn't it make more sense to consider both when judging the difference? Wade looks 3.5"-4" shorter than Beasley so he looks around 6'3.5" there if Beasley is 6'7.25". Here's another Olympic photo of Wade and Kobe and there's barely an difference here: Click Here

Also, Ewing never claimed 6'9.75". Mutombo joked that Ewing wasn't a real 7 footer like he and Yao were and Ewing joked back "I may be 6-9, but I'm a bad 6-9." I've seen Starks only reach Ewing's mouth at times and the lower to middle part at that so that would be more 9". Ewing clearly didn't have a mere 5" on 6'4.5" measured Jamal Crawford. Closer to 7" actually. Click Here

@Sotiris: sometimes the picture may make someone appear taller like with Boomer and Mourning. I think Mourning could be as low as 6’8 as high as 6’8.5. Maybe in between. I could almost buy 6’9.5 in basketball sneaks which add 1.25”. Now for Ewing he admitted to being 6’9.75 before which would likely be a low for him. Another poster here Robert Broome claimed to be his neighbor and estimated him 6’9 and change (likely 6’9.5ish) which may signal height loss. He is overweight these days. I could buy 6’9.75 at his low peak or 6’10 but since the number came out specifically 6’9.5. I look at Ewing with Starks and he’s at most 8” taller if not 7.5-8”. It’s more that some of the other players barefoot heights aren’t completely accurate.

As for Boomer, i disagree however. I think if he’s less than 6’4” it isn’t by all that much. He’s not as low as 6’3” flat. Maybe 6’3.5 or 6’3.75 but he still looks genuine 6’4” at times. See him with James Brown. Brown in person is 6’4-6’5 range. He looks about as tall or maybe a fraction shorter at worst or even taller at times

I'm far from convinced Kobe is 2" taller than Wade. Here's the same photoshoot as the photo Vegas posted: Click Here This one isn't full like the other, but the angle isn't low and it's still an inch or less. Some of that might be Kobe having looser posture, but it still looks a very long way from a 2" difference.

@Canson I think you and I both agree that Alonzo Mourning is 6'8". Here he is w/ Boomer: Click Here

Boomer and Show for comparison... Click Here

Regardless of how tall Boomer is, Show doesn't look much taller than Alonzo.




@Rob 6'10" for big Show...? I beg to differ.

Some ppl might say that Mourning is taller than 6'8", but he's not. Here he is next to a legit 6'10" Ewing for comparison... Click Here

Big Show is not 6'10".

I doubt he’s lost 2.5”. I think he’s 6’10” ish today. Worst case 6’9.5. Peak im unsure of but prob 6’11 range

Canson I clearly stated 'on video' not photos re: Levi/Wade.

If you want to debate officially listed measured heights knock yourself out because I won't be participating past this post. What are the odds one of the top 5 basketball propects that year could get away with as much as an inch overlisting at a combine while probably every member of the basketball press and scouting network were present?

Sotiris, the point of posting that shot is to show roughly how tall Wight stands with Manganiello which is roughly 6 inches taller. Wilder comes out about 5 inches shorter comparing him to Boomer. If Wilder is flat 6'6 then he will come to roughly Big Show's eyeliner maybe a little above if they met.
Canson said on 15/Dec/18
Well Vegas by that logic, I could also say that Michael Clarke Duncan is only 6’2”. Hes the same height as the Rock in this picture. That would be equally as silly because we know MCD is not 6’2”. That’s what I’m talking about with suspect pics

Canson said on 15/Dec/18
@Vegas: I don’t base it off one picture though. Its off several. I also look at in game on the court and from what I’ve heard of people that have seen him. I look at him with other players as well and former players. Comparing him to Hulk Hogan is no different than the debate that you are having with Sotiris about Taker’s height. That would be like him sayin Hogan isn’t as tall as he’s listed and using Wade to show that. We all know that Hogan has poor posture as well. So that is likely the case there. I look at Wade with Kobe and Barkley and others on the court and can tell in addition to how he looks with Lebron and Carmelo. He’s not 6’3.75. So I guess if it’s not worth arguing “Combine” listings then why is this guy here Julian Peterson listed at 6’3” in the NFL after measuring 6’5.1? Or Shawne Merriman being listed 6’4 3/8 and he’s obviously not. There’s a reason why Lebron and others have said that Wade is not as tall as he’s listed even Lebron calling him 6’3” and Wade correcting him and saying he’s 6’4”. If Wade were really 6’3.75 barefoot he would be listed at 6’5”.

Considering Wade was noticeably taller than Hulk Hogan at 2007 Father of the year, Michael Clarke Duncan and Zach Levi backstage on video at Tonight Show, the odds on him being a full inch shorter than his officially listed measured height are practically zero.

Canson what I have found over the years is debating officially listed measured heights is pretty much fruitless (that and trying to prove someone is wearing internal lifts).

And sure you can find photos where anyone looks shorter..I mean we can all post photos :) Click Here
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Christian: it’s tough to say with Wade. Out of all the players in that class that I’ve observed and even met (Melo, Hinrich, Bogans) with the exception of TJ Ford they all looked close to what they are supposed to meaning I doubt they’re morning heights. Possibly more like lunch time which could be rounded up an 1/8” but that may be it. And for Keith Bogans he was measured at 6’4.5 in 2002 and 6’4.25 in 2003. TJ Ford looks closer to 5’10” than 5’11”. But then I see guys like Bosh who looks a full 6’10” minimum on TV and Lebron who generally looks 6’7”. I am curious about Udonis Haslem though. He can look 6’6.5 at times but also 6’6 at times (pre draft is 6’6.75). I would say 6’6.5 is best case. It is said that Lebron was like Kobe In that he never attended the pre draft. Lebron actually attended it but not sure if he was actually measured per an article I once read that said that he was never measured after surpassing “Michael Jordan’s” 6’6”. I only mention that because Lebron was only given 3/4” for shoes. But I could easily buy a full 6’7” for Lebron even though I have said 6’6.75. 6’6.75 is equally possible for him but that may signal a morning type measurement if that’s the case. To me Wade’s measurement could be discrepant. It could be possible that he laid around before being measured (which looks like what Love did as he’s said to be 6’7” and the combine was in the afternoon in 2008). But if he were 6’3.75 or even rounded up from 6’3.5 he would still look a strong 6’3” most of the time. He looks weak 6’3” often enough in my opinion
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@Vegas: I didnt say that they were fake. But there is a possibility for discrepancies. And I clearly said in my post to you that it could be an error. But if you believe in the measurements as your basis, that’s fine. I just said that I don’t believe in all of them without looking closely at players first. Although I don’t rule out some of the messumenrs being embellished. Look at Shawne Merriman but that may be a discrepancy or on him. He obviously is not anything remotely close to 6’4 3/8. And this is despite the Combine measurements being very early morning as I’ve proven before and Rob even admitted. They take place about an hour after waking up. Comparing Senior Bowls and Pro days to them over the years, players end up about 3/8” to 1/2” taller on average at the combine.

Back to Wade. Looking at him on the court against a guy like Keith bogans he’s not 6’4”. Same with ray Allen. And with 6’7.25 listed Lebron or Wilton’s Speight 6’5.25 it’s clear he is not 6’3.75 barefoot. I don’t take Pre Draft measurements with a grain of salt just because it says that they are supposed to be “official”. Rob has already proven this that there are discrepancies when he showed the video of 5111 being the measurement and 5113 being written down instead. They measure hundreds of players at a time so it is easy to make mistakes not to mention if they have lifts in socks etc.

@Sotiris: to be honest, I wouldn’t worry about being “too harsh”. You see a lot of guys inflate people by 2 or 3 inches on this site because they want their celebs to be taller even reverting to making stuff up. Very rarely is anything said to them so don’t see why you can’t speak your mind that he’s shorter. It’s always a sin when people downgrade but when they upgrade it’s swept under the mat. Look around at how silly some of the other estimates that people here give that are as unbelievable as they get as far as inflation, yet you hear more about yours than they do. A lot of times their comments arent responded to. And Wade to be fair hardly looks 6’3” If you ask me. 6’2.5-6’3 looks believable.

You're right. Nash does look taller once you account for the camera positioning. And I doubt their footwear would be much different in that situation, since both would be wearing dress shoes with suits.

There was clearly 3 inches between Kane and Big Show in that footage.
Kane was 6' 7.5" back then plus 3" (at least) footwear brought him to near 6' 11"
Big Show was with 2" footwear meaning he was 7' back then.

@Christian, 184 Big Show has always been the taller man, but I just found it interesting that Nash was in the back and still had substantial height.

@Sotiris: a pic like that with Lebron and Bosh isn’t always the best way to judge. See Lebron who is 6’7” with Wade and see 6’5.25 Wilton Speight with Wade. I’d be highly surprised if Wade measures above 6’3 (I could make a case for a weak 6’3 as I already have). Lebron has even said Wade is at most 6’3” and Erik Spoelstra and Otis Smith (Orlando’s former GM) both called him 6’4” on a good day. A guy who measures 6’3.25 isn’t considered 6’4 on a good day. He would be over 6’4” (6’4.5) in basketball shoes. Wade would “maybe” make 6’4 if not just 6’3.75 in them

As for Boomer and Mariota, I don’t trust that pic. I would lay money down on the table that Boomer is the taller of the two. Brady is clearly taller than Mariota as well and he’s 6’4”. Boomer would be about Brady’s height today give or take a fraction maybe. Mariota may not be as low as 6’3.25 but best case is 6’3 3/8 being he measured where he did about an hour out of bed as all NFL combines are held early morning. I saw an article before that I posted that said the players wake at 6am, drug test then get measured right after. That’s about an hour after waking especially when we see people like Johnny Manziel tweet at 740 am what his measurement is. Mariota could be perhaps as low as 6’3.25 but as high as 3/8. He would probably be 6’4” flat out of bed. Boomer looks like a guy who would measure 6’4” later in the day (if not at a low). I’d be surprised if he even dipped below. I say what I do about morning and evening because the site (as Rob has mentioned before) isn’t based on morning heights. It’s based on afternoon heights.

Melo is around his draft listing. No less than 6’6 no higher than 6’6.25. It likely took place in the afternoon the year he Lebron and Wade got drafted and Wade’s measurement is likely in shoes

That’s only a 5” difference with Mourning not 6”. Mourning though isn’t 6’9” he’s 6’8” range. As for Boomer he doesn’t look to be standing completely straight so that would likely reduce that margin by a bit and Boomer likely 6’4” Mourning 6’8 and a bit
184guy2 said on 5/Dec/18
@Sotiris

lol , are you serious that Nash looks taller than Show in that pic ????
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Sotiris: I wouldn’t say that Boomer can’t be based on that pic alone. And for Mariota that’s very possible 6’3 3/8 or 1/4 based on when he measured. Boomer is taller than Selleck. Selleck isn’t slouching that much if even. The only reason Mariota looks taller than Boomer is due to where he is standing and the camera. Look at Boomer with James Brown or Dan Marino both of whom I’ve met. Brown claimed that he’s 6’4.5-6’5 in an article a couple years back and looked maybe half inch taller than me (having not addressed footwear). So he could be 6’4.5 or worst case my height but I’ll say he’s 6’4.5 since he prob wouldn’t have had that much more shoe on than me. Marino was about an inch shorter than me so 6’3.25 like Rob has him or maybe he’s just a solid 6’3” today (I met him many years ago) but no less than that. Boomer still looks every bit of 6’4 to tell you the truth. At times he’s taller than Brown on camera. If he were 6’3 he would be Marino’s height and he’s taller.

Wilder and Fury looked very close in height at weigh in on Friday. Regardless Shaq looks solid 7 foot guy even if Wilder is flat 6'6 in that full length shot. Shaq under 7 foot and 6'9 Chara estimates (even first thing in morning) make little sense seeing the two together

Canson I can only base estimates on what I see. Rodman also has claimed 6'8 many times too. If Rodman was under 6'7 at peak he was 2 inches taller than Jordan and that means Thomas is under 6'1 (probably under 6 foot) which has a knock on effect with Will Smith, Holyfield even Arnold Schwarzeneggers heights in the early 90s. Rodman was 3+ inches taller in recent enough photos with Troy Aikman who himself was measured 6'4.25 during his playing days.

I would take what team-mates say with grain of salt re Kevin Nash claims Hogan was 6'4 peak when he saw him at show in 1980s but Shawn Michaels was 6'1 when he first met him in 93.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Sotiris: Mariota measured 6’3.75 early morning meaning he’s really just a strong 6’3”. 6’3.25/6’3 3/8. Boomer still looks 6’4” most of the time on CBS. I can agree on Deontay being Melo’s size or maybe a tiny fraction shorter. I doubt he’s under 6’6” flat though as Melo wouldn’t be under it either. If anything he’s maybe a hair over or exact
