I think no one try to misure big show head so you can only estimate it. I had noticed that he had a bigger head than nash when they did various face to face. You said that thor has a small head for his size as 10-10.25 inch long. Now you put Nash head only 1/4 of inch longer than Thor, when you said for years that Nash and kingma in person have at least an inch longer head than Thor.
this is triple h next to Thor
Click Here
This is triple h next to Nash
Click Here
You can clearly see that triple h has a 10 inch long head, same size as Thor and for sure longer than yours. And Nash about an inch longer than triple h. Without any doubt big show doesn’t have a 12 inch head, but clearly 11.5 inch.. but of course if you want to put nash head only half of an inch longer than triple h head, then big show has a 11 inch head but isn’t the truth in my opinion

I doubt Nash have only a 10.5 inch head even because his head seems easily an inch longer than triple h head
Click Here
It’s hard to believe triple h head only 9.5 inch even considerer that hhh head is about half of an inch longer than Roman reigns head
Click Here
True Roman doesn’t have a big head but I don’t put a 6ft2 plus guy head only 9 inch.
Even considerer big show and triple h head
Click Here
I think the truth is this:

Roman reigns: 9.5 inch
Triple h: 10 inch
Kevin Nash: 11 inch
Big show: 11.5 inch


You got maybe 1/4 right
Roman Reign's head is probably 9''
Triple H head less than 10'' more like 9 inches
Kevin Nash probably 10.25''
seems more realistic.

Another photo of Big Show and Bret Hart Click Here
Rob’s noggin is 9.5” long. Click Here Factor in the lower camera angle, Big Show being a little father from the camera than Hart and the top of his head being cut off ~ 1/8 – 1/4", and his head again comes out around 12 inches long.

I considerer top head- eye range about an inch shorter than eye-chin for big show. Like Kevin Nash who have 5 inch eyelevel and 11 inch long head. I know that 5.5 inch eye level is huge but definitely seems to have about the same of undertaker, strowman. Definitely 5.25 inch seems possible that in my opinion make big show a 11.5 inch head


Nah Kevin Nash has a noticeably smaller head compared to Big Show more than half an inch?
Kevin Nash head seems to be about 10.25' and Big Show's closer to 12''.

Editor rob: I think half inch longer at least than Nash, who himself can have 10.5 range head so it could be fair to say Show's wouldn't be under 11 inches.

But Nash doesn’t have a full 11 inch head ? I mean if you cut Nash's head to eye level and position his chin on the eye level, the top of Nash’s head is located about the middle of the nose. So definitely is more 11 inch like you said. Maybe big show has a head length between 11 and 12 inch
Editor Rob

In person I think a 10.5 inch head for Nash could be likely, but as much as 11? I don't know, I mean it would be interesting if these stats were ever measured for wrestlers, but it's something I rarely ever read about, let alone seen anybody mention measuring it.

If you rewatched the old match of big show, back 2002 he went face to face with lesnar multiple time. I mean big show in 2002 was near the peak mark and with lesnar he looked this distance
Click Here
Is a bad quality, but is even in footwear advantage and didn’t look to have a full head, but Brock lesnar seems about 2 inch over his chin. I really doubt his head is “only” 11 inch
Editor Rob
his head looks quite long with Brock, not less than 11 inches there.

The chances of Show being over 7'0" in his prime is 0.

He was at the most 7'0", likely a morning height like Canson said.

Massive human being still, even when hes all slim and shredded now.
JT said on 7/Jul/20
Big Show’s head is probably around 12 inches; Andre’s was likely similar in length but looked wider, especially below the eyes, and was probably close to normal length from the eyes up.

John Tenta had a huge head and it’s still noticeably smaller than Big Show’s
Click Here

A basketball has a 9.5” diameter Click Here (the higher camera angle does favor Big Show a bit in the comparison, which is why his head ends up looking more than 12 inches long)

Big Show and Bret Hart and Hart with Rob Click Here Hart’s head looks longer than Rob’s, which is maybe 9.5 inches (?) long.
Kan said on 7/Jul/20
In this shot Nash doesn’t rise his eyes up
Click Here
But big show still have a longer head.. maybe 12 inch is too much but 11.5 inch seems very likely
Editor Rob
I think half inch longer at least than Nash, who himself can have 10.5 range head so it could be fair to say Show's wouldn't be under 11 inches.
Pierre said on 6/Jul/20
Click Here Big Show and Kevin Nash (6"8.75' here,average guess a bit less) here both very probably without possible advantageous wrestler shoes,here camera low that logically give a good advantage to the closest man,so Big Show.To me Big Show by this pic is clearly a bit shorter than Kevin.
mrtguy said on 6/Jul/20
@Kan
His head is probably 12 inches maximum and I don't think his head is just 11'' seems to be longer than that.
Kan said on 6/Jul/20
Is a 5.5 inch eye level possible for big show ?
Editor Rob
With his shaven head, I've never quite thought it was that big...but something worth remembering with taller guys. Their eyelevel in photos with smaller people can sometimes be reduced a few mm.

When you photograph Big Show with hair at a better distance and with a bigger focal length, Click Here...you can see compared to normal man's head, it could be over 5 and not far from 5.5.

But in many wrestling videos, especially behind the scenes, it never looked that long.
Canson said on 5/Jul/20
This guy has never seen 7’2. Peak 7’0/7’0.5 out of bed 6’11-6’11.25 peak afternoon

Rob, I can guarantee you Big Show's head is 12'' long under a measuring tape it looks quite massive even next to guy's with big head like Taker, Kane, Nash and etc...
Kan said on 4/Jul/20
However big rob
If Nash have a 11 inch long head and big show have a 11 inch long head, in my opinion there is something wrong
Click Here
Editor Rob
When Nash raises his eyes up a bit, he'll be knocking near 2cm off his head length, whilst Big Show keeps his steady (or very slightly lowered).
Kan said on 4/Jul/20
If you considerer that khali and big show have a very similar head size.. if you compare a 6ft2 guy next to peak khaki 7ft1 there are a 11 inch difference

I don’t know but for sure is bigger than Nash head. I have to say at least 11.5 inch

Duhon by my reckoning Omogbehin is the second tallest person ever under WWE employment.

Silo Sam I believe worked one WWE tryout match but estimates place him at ~7'2

Is Big show head size about 12 inch ? Seems a lot bigger than Nash in every staredown and Nash probably have a 11 inch long head

As big as a foot? 11 inches yes, but a full foot?
It would have been interesting if somebody documented Andre the Giant's true head size, and also Big Show's!

Big Show (Paul Wight) height timeline over the years in wrestling:

1995 - 2000: Morning 7’1.25”, Evening 7’0”
2001 - 2003: Morning 7’0.75”, Evening 6’11.5”
2004 - 2008: (Before & After 1st weight loss) Morning 7’0.25”, Evening 6’11”
2009 - 2014: Morning 6’11.5”, Evening 6’10.25”
2015 - 2016 (Before 2nd weight loss): Morning 6’10.75”, Evening 6’9.5”
2017 - current (After 2nd weight loss): Morning 6’11.5”, Evening 6’10.25”

Bottom line is everytime Big Show puts on weight he loses height especially since he got older. But once he loses weight it improves his posture. These are just estimates but I base these heights on watching him in the ring for 25 years and from pics with other people (Shaq, Dirk Nowitski, Dennis Rodman, Lebron James, etc.)
JT said on 24/Jun/20
This article Click Here indicates that Jordan Omogbehin had a “growth” removed from his pituitary gland, which would help explain his height and his already weighing 330 lbs. at age 19/20. The article then goes on to state that his height is a “mystery” given the height of other family members….. He's already had two knee surgeries, including for a torn ACL, so you may not see him being very active in the ring.

Roel I would be surprised if he is below 7'2 looking at him with Matt Bloom Click Here

I think intimidation in pro wrestling alot comes from strong booking. Reis as you mentioned was protrayed as weak whereas the others you mentioned debuted either super strong or in Andres case were a top attraction for 25 years
-------------------
Nice pic! Omogbehin is looking huge next to Matt Bloom, but he's also standing closer to the camera and Bloom is looking quite a bit shorter than Babatunde (who was listed 6'9" in the NFL). Bloom could've lost some height over the years. Haven't seen much of Bloom since he retired as a pro-wrestler.
RoelC said on 22/Jun/20
Speaking about Jordan Omogbehin, here's a 2014-2015 basketball teampic from Morgan State University.
Click Here

The guy on his left is 7ft listed Zech Smith. He looks easily 3 inches shorter than Omogbehin.
Zech Smith has also been signed to a WWE developmental deal earlier this year.
JT said on 21/Jun/20
As RoelC said, the camera angles were a bit off but you can still get a decent idea how Big Show and Jordan O would measure up. Click Here If Big Show stood straight it’s still probably at least a 3 inch difference. Jordan O’s head does not go to the top of the hood (like Ron Reis’ head in the Yeti costume and he also played a giant Ninja….), but he looks taller than Reis, Khali, Shaq, Giant Silva... Unless there is something in the inside, the footwear looks surprisingly small too Click Here However, I would think WWE would want to make him look as tall as possible IF he's going to be their new giant and considering Big Show probably does not have too much time left with the company. Jordan O looks at least 350 lbs. too.

Interesting pic of ‘peak’ Big Show looking a very similar height to Dennis Rodman. Particularly considering Dennis has his head tilted.

Click Here

Click Here That was 2007. Big Show did not look as tall then as in his WCW or early WWF days. John Sally was 6’10” range.
184guy2 said on 19/Jun/20
Show will need some serious lifts and the african guy almost barefoot .... if not Vince needs to bill him up to 7'5 to make 7' Show believible. Maybe big Rob Paul can find a solution for our fellas wrestlers :)

I think the best that Show can hope for if they have a staredown is coming up to his eyebrow area, he does seem to be a legit 7'3. We should see Show stand to his absolute maximum if they do so it will be interesting.

This guy would have a solid 2.5' on Shaq. Even a prime Show in his early WCW boots would be looking up.
Vegas' said on 16/Jun/20
7'3 college basketball listed Jordan Omogbehin debuted in WWE Sunday night. On Raw he was involved in same segment as the returning Big Show so we might get some interaction between those two
Click Here

He is extremely tall guy over 7 foot as evidenced next to Kevin Nash Click Here

Potentially second tallest wrestler in WWE history perhaps next to Gonzales.

viper said on 9/Jun/20
Finch measured 6-3.2 at a junior pro day.

Did he really grow an inch to 6-4.1?

Another reason why we can’t trust pre draft or combine measurements. The same way that certain people swore Wade was 6’3.75 and only an inch shorter than Kobe. I can look at Wade physically and tell that he is not 6’4”
RoelC said on 16/Jun/20
Big Show returned to RAW last night as a back-up to the Street Profits & Viking Raiders who were fighting a group of Ninja's (yeah I'm not making this up!). One of them was a giant Ninja, portrayed by former college basketball player Jordan Omogbehin. No idea how tall that guy is, but he was listed 7'3" in College Basketball. He looked easily 6 inches taller than Nash, but was standing closer to the camera. My guess is he's at least 7'1" though.

Although Big Show & Jordan Omogbehin didn't have a face-off, I did merge two screen shots together to get an idea how these two would measure off. The camera isn't 100% the same, so it's not entirely accurate. Big Show could stand a little taller, but if this is what it would look like, than that guy is huge!
Click Here

I wonder if WWE will have these guys fued with one another. I'm not sure if Jordan has what it takes to become the next giant in profesional wrestling. He's big, he's tall, but he doesn't have that intimidating look that guys like Andre, Big Show or even The Great Khali had. And we haven't seen him wrestle either and having him come out as a Giant Ninja (flashback to Ron Reis who had a similar gimmick in WCW) doesn't do him any favours either.
Pierre said on 15/Jun/20
Click Here = The low camera stand on the side to Big Show (closer to him than to Shaq) ,Big Show's head looking so big here compared to Shaq's head .With a better angle(camera higher and centred) I 'm sure the difference of height would look very probably a lot bigger between both guys.
Riky said on 10/Jun/20
We can argue that Shaq (7ft peak) was 6'11.5/75 range back to the face off with big show?
If we can then Show was about 6'10.25 in my opinion, out of gear he looked a lot shorter next to Shaq but probably excluding strange camera angles I can see 2 inches between them
Dan Trojan said on 9/Jun/20
Pierre you talk about big show having advantage with boots over shaq but what about when shaq guest hosted raw at the beginning of the show they were both wearing dress shoes no footwear advantage and there was an 1.5" difference in those other photos you speak of i think it has to do with camera angles i don't believe shaq has 3 inches on the big show
viper said on 9/Jun/20

@Canson = In the ring Big Show had very probably very advantageous wrestler shoes,out of ring in the pic I posted, both very probably with same heels, Shaq looks like he tower over big Show.
Canson said on 7/Jun/20
@Pierre: that is precisely what Show would’ve been peak 6’11” but not 7’. In the ring, Shaq only had about 1.5” on him
Canson said on 5/Jun/20
@Vegas: 6’4 1/8” is what Finch shows on his. If pattern is the same 6’3.75 or 6’3 5/8”. So there’s about 3/4” between them if they were measured at the same time
Pierre said on 5/Jun/20

Canson, yes I would because it looks ~7 inches difference taking into account Wights head size. JTs photo of 6'4 measured Finch and Dawkins taken middle of day suggests 6'3 3/8 is too short for Dawkins though.

Roderick, I met Matt Bloom and Taker out of gear in 2004 and 2006 and Taker was taller. On TV they looked similar height so you can't base everything on that.

I mean how tall does Undertaker look here Click Here

Also Sids 6'6 claim is too vague. There is a difference between 6'6 flat and 6'6 3/4

I’m not sure how tall Finch actually is but there is a good chance he’s less than 6’4”. We don’t know when he was measured. If Sid claimed 6’6, I doubt he means 6’6.75” but knowing height varies throughout the day it’s possible Sid was a strong 6’6” like Rob lists him. In your encounter with Taker, how tall would you have guessed him? I thought Taker looked 199cm range with Ali Baba and probably 6’7 In his prime
JT said on 2/Jun/20
A 6’11” peak Big Show puts Wichita State’s starting center John Smith (listed at 6’8”) in the 6’5” range Click Here Not impossible but highly unlikely for a Division I team.

WCW Big Show with Ed Leslie (Brutus Beefcake) Click Here and Jimmy Hart. Click Here Rob has Leslie at 6’2”. I don’t think he’s quite that tall but it’s still almost a full head size difference. Jimmy Hart was around 5’9”. Big Show's boots probably have a 1.25 to 1.5 inch heel under the pivot point but we're still talking at most a 0.25 to 0.5 inch advantage over Leslie's and Hart's footwear.

Big Show’s definitely lost height over the years – it may be a combo of some shortening of his spine and his tendency to lean forward at the waist, which may have started when he started packing on weight around his waist.
Canson said on 1/Jun/20
@Mrtguy and Rob:

I think Rob has him listed appropriately give Dawkins is most likely a morning measurement being it took place at the combine. So more 6’3 3/8” for Dawkins would put Show right at 6’10”. We can argue that he likely isn’t less than 6’10” based on this

Don't forget here is Show with 6'8 Big Cass just a year or 2 back.

No way on this earth could a 6'9 man pull off looking that tall with a minimal (0.25') footwear advantage. It's arguable he's still looking 6'11 there.

Personally I've still got him at over 6'10 barefoot when he stands fully straight.



Agreed. People just want to downgrade his height without acknowledging how he measures in real life. I still believe he can 6'11'' or more early in the day and dip down at night.
Canson said on 30/May/20
@Vegas: that 6’3 3/4” was a morning height however. More 6’3 3/8 if we went with a normal measurement. Would you say still 6’10” based on that?
Roderick said on 30/May/20
@Vegas Yes it does. Knowing Sid is shorter than we thought he was, would also mean Undertaker is shorter than we thought he was. And we know Undertaker has any many encounters with Show over the years.

Roderick he looks more than 6'9.5 next to 6'3 3/4 barefoot measured Dion Dawkins in normal shoes and that was only last year.

Sid's height estimate has little relevance to Paul Wights if they never stood next to each other
Roderick said on 27/May/20
Pretty surprising he's still listed at 7'0" peak and 6'10" today.

6'11.5" peak and 6'9.5" today Rob? You downgraded Undertaker and Sid, it would make sense to drop Show as well.
Canson said on 20/May/20
@Pierre: Smith was at his peak at 22 years old. Avery began to shrink later in the series which is why the height difference decreased. Smith was not more than about 6’1 though not 6’1.5 like he’s listed

@184guy2 The pics you posted are without even a doubt old pics compared to the pic with Big Show inwhich James Avery looks like an old man here.James Avery and Will Smith clearly are looking young in your pic...and not even sure Will Smith in his 21/ 22 here was even at his max peak...of course James Avery was at his max peak here...and very probably he has lost height by the years next to Big Show ...
Lyle said on 18/May/20
He didn't look that much taller than Taker on episode 2 of 'The Last Ride' at the very best I can give is 6'9 MAX
184guy2 said on 17/May/20
Both Pics aren't from the same period. One isfrom 95-99 , other from 2011. So 15ish years difference . James wasn'tin his peak in 2011 . Look him and Will Smith in the past :

Now the argument will be that Will was never over 6'0.75 ...........

I wouldn't be surprised if Rob dropped Big Show (Paul Wright) to 6'9 1/2 he has came down in height a bit and not long ago had a hip replaced - not the 7 footer he was once.

In fact in this pic next to Big Show James Avery looks older than in the pic I posted ,when he has 2 inches on a 6"1.5' Will Smith but Will stands in a terrible posture.James Avery is himself in a poor posture next to Big Show...Even if both pics are same period ,Then this pic never means Big Show is close to 6"11'.
Braylon said on 16/May/20
When I saw the Big Show stand face to face with the Great Khali who claimed to be 7'1" at the time, I had Big Show At 7'0" at the least because he looked half an inch to 1 inch
shorter because there wasn't that big of a difference, when I saw him with Shaq who I also heard was around 7'1" there looked to be a 2 to 3 inch difference so did that mean Khali wasn't a legitimate 7'1" guy ?

Judging from Big Show's haircut that pic is either from 1998 or early 1999.
That reunion pic of the Fresh Prince cast is from late 2011. Click Here

So hardly the same timeframe. There's about 12 years between those pics.
Avery isn't dropping much height there either.
184guy2 said on 15/May/20
This photo is probably from 1995-1999 ( when show as already famous and got long hair)
Avery was 49-54 at time ( could have lost a fraction by the time )
He also at moments looked 4inches taller than Will , but over 6'4 was likely , he got a solid inch , maybe plus in Chavy Chase . Show looks a solid 7 inches taller . Hard to see a mm less than 6'11 , with 6'11.5-7' being likely

Duhon said on 13/May/20
@184guy2 interesting picture. Avery himself would sometimes almost dwarf 6'1.5" Will Smith on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

He did dwarf him at times. It seemed less toward the end of the series. I know Ribeiro once called Avery 6’4” and Smith 6’2”. Avery may have been nearer what Rob lists him today in his prime and Smith more like 186 cm (Holyfield size) or 6’1”. Avery 6’4.5 or .75 maybe
Pierre said on 14/May/20
This is imo an old James Avery next to Big Show in the pic,plus James Avery does not stand very straight in the pic .Here is imo a picture at around the same period = Will Smith here in poor posture / James Avery Click Here =by considering the postures he looks maybe 6"3' here ?

@Canson
And on the other hand, some combine measurements are legit or very close to it, like Antonio Brown and Peyton Manning.
Canson said on 6/May/20
@Christian and Vegas: some guys actually can measure up to 5/8 or 3/4” less than their combine. However I agree it’s usually 3/8” or 1/2” below their measurement to arrive at a low meaning Dawkins could be 6’3.25” afternoon height but I would 6’3 3/8 is fair
Vegas" said on 5/May/20
Dawkins would be 6'3 3/8 max at his low if he measured 6'3 8/10 within hour out of bed. Of course we don't know his actual low or time photo was taken so it's just assumptions at this point.
Roderick said on 4/May/20
I would love to see a photo of Big Show and Enes Kanter together. I bet Show would look the same height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/May/20
@Vegas
He may have measured 6'3 8/10" and 6'3 6/8" or whatever, I'm not disagreeing with you on that, but those are early day measurements more than likely. He'd be more 6'3 3/8" max at his low.
Vegas' said on 29/Apr/20
Christian we have measured height(s) for Dawkins hence why I used him as evidence. It's also an excellent photo, taken within last year or so where we can see ground, stance and footwear which we rarely get with wrestler photos on here and most importantly it is taken inside so we know ground is level.

Dawkins has a measurement of 6'3 8/10ths barefoot on couchscout to go with others like draftscout saying 6'3 6/8th so don't see any sites listing him lower than upper 6'3
cleaner said on 29/Apr/20
I think he shrunk 2 1/2 Inches, probably about 6 feet 10 or 6 feet 9 1/2.
JT said on 28/Apr/20
Dawkins looks as tall as Sharif Finch, who measured 6’4”
Click Here

Door heights are hard to estimate in movies or TV. In some shows, nearly 7’2” Richard Kiel does not even have to duck under what seem to be standard door frames Click Here

Not sure if this is on the set or in an actual building. Click Here I've had door frames in my house that have been anywhere from 6'8" to 6'9". I believe the door itself usually measures 6'8" so the frame has to be a little taller to accommodate the door.

A younger Big Show has to duck under a door frame here as well as when entering the elevator, which I believe by code has to have an opening at least 84 inches tall in any commercial building. Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Apr/20
@Vegas
The problem though, is that Dion is more than likely not 6'3 3/4" by noon or night. Combine measurements are typically 1/2" higher than a measurer's low height, and even then, combine mesurements can be iffy at times. (e.g. Shawne Merriman)
Pierre said on 22/Apr/20
mrtguy said on 20/Apr/20
Rob, I don't know why you changed his height, a man this big can shrink two inches a day given so his morning height is likely 7'0'' and night 6'10 some change. For ALL you saying he is 6'8''-6'9'' need help that downgrades every single person he has met that are listed on this site.


mrtguy =7"0.5' Shaq tower over him here.Then you need to change Shaq's height Click Here Advantageous wrestler shoes make the rest...

Could Show still get to 6’10.25 or 6’10.5” today or is there too much evidence suggesting he’s 6’10” or even below that?

A Man, Dion Dawkins was measured 6'3 3/4 barefoot at NFL combine. There is more than ~5 inches between the two there and footwear is normal. Top of Dawkins head would need to reach Shows eyeline there for him to be approx 6'9 flat as from his eyes to top of his head must be 5+ inches given it's 4.6 inches for normal male head Click Here

Agree Duhon. 3 inches height loss by 47-48 would be very extreme unless he had some sort of chronic issue or something

Christian 6'5 3/8", that's a tv set door. The two major door heights in the US are 6'8 and 7 foot. There are taller doors than 7 foot but as I pointed out that's a tv set it's height would be unknown.

I'd say the doorframe was around 6'11" range.
Duhon said on 18/Apr/20
Those of you who believe Show is only 6'9" or under now, do you agree with Rob he was 7" in his peak years? A loss of 3" of height for a man not even 50 would be quite extreme.

Except Shaq is 7’0, not 7’1, so Big show was more 6’10.5” around that time.
A Man said on 17/Apr/20
He is absolutely not 6,11”, not even 6,10”.

There are countless pictures of him out of ring gear in normal footwear looking in the 6,9” range, sometimes even shorter. The only times he ever looks 6,10” or more are when he’s wearing his high heels in the ring.

Show is 6,9”. It shouldn’t even be up for discussion at this point.
mrtguy said on 16/Apr/20
Rob, list him at 6’11”?? Please
Roderick said on 15/Apr/20
Show looks 6'8" range if that door is 6'10" but 6'10" range if that door is 7'0".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Apr/20
@ced

That doorframe's probably 2.1m (about 6'10.75"), as 2.1m is a standard doorframe height in some situations, especially in newer buildings. It was also the standard height in my former apartment that I lived in, since my apartment was built relatively new. I can see Show being around an inch shorter, based on the photo (with shoes on), so that would make him around 6'8.75" barefoot.

Lyle said on 7/Apr/20
After seeing this Mondays raw, where show was face to face with Drew, its easy to see why people guess him at 6'7-6'8 take his boots off and he's not 6'10.

I know that would make Kane around 6'4-6'5 *laughs* but maybe the gap between kane and show is now lower than ever or what we originally thought



The camera angle between Big Show and Drew Mcintyre is DISTORTED WWE always try to do that when they're trying to make a champion always look bigger than they actually are.
ced said on 8/Apr/20
Macintyre is 6'4 on the dot. I have Orton at 6'3.5 and Macyntire did not look more than .5 taller than Orton.

Big Show is 6'8.75 today and in his boots he's about 6'9.75.

miko said on 7/Apr/20
I think Drew gets a decent boost in ring gear as he has looked a solid 6'5 in recent times with Undertaker, Strowman and Reigns & Lesnar in recent times, so we can discount any footwear advantage for Big Show. Barefoot I've got McIntyre at 6'4.5, which Rob has too.

I think he was looking around 5/5.5' taller than Drew, although it was hard to tell with the changing angles. I still think if he stands as tall as possible he'd be 6'10 range, military posture/neck straight, knees straight.

At times can seem sub 6ft 10 but then he might be bobbing a bit on his knees and losing height.

Looked at leat 5 inches taller than Drew Mcintyre , and I really doubt he had any footwear advantage , so over 6'9.5 is still likely
Alex 6'0 said on 6/Apr/20
Big show peak no doubts was a legit 7'0. Today i can see 6'10 but not no 6'8. With Shaq back in 2010 he looked more 6"11.5 if we believe shaq was 7'1 peak
A Man said on 5/Apr/20
Seen some trailers for the new ‘Big Show’ sitcom he’s done due to come out soon.

In every single shot he has the appearance of a big 6,8” guy. Not a giant 6,10”+ guy.

Roderick said on 24/Mar/20
Perhaps 6'11" was more likely than 7'0". The Mexican Mentors list supposedly had him at 6'11". If he was 7'0" they would not have put him down as 6'11".
-------------
Dave Roderick go to DAve Bautista's height page. Last page, all the way down to the bottom you'll find a copy of the Mexican Mentors list. It has Big Show at 213cm, which is 7ft.

Not that it matters, as that list was a complete fraud. I made various remarks about that list back in the day. Like how come wrestlers like Big Show, Goldberg, DDP are on that list, when it's supposedly a list from 1996. Or how come Disco Inferno is on a list of WWF wrestlers, when he never once wrestled in the WWF.
Canson said on 28/Mar/20

Big Show I think these days can still pull off 6’10.5” (bustin a gut).
At peak no question was around 7’0” (or at worst 6’11.75”).

The Shaq pics from the ESPY’s red carpet a few years back was definitely an eye opener and can see how Show might be getting some 6’9” listings. It’s possible at that time he was still 400+ pounds and was hard to stand fully straight because of the weight.

If you put Show and Shaq together today barefoot I still think Shaq would have Show by nearly 2 inches:
Shaq: 7’0.25”
Big Show 6’10.5”

Big show probably with same shoes as Shaq is never only two inches shorter than Shaq here = Click Here And here the camera is very low and the difference is very probably bigger in reality.The difference between them in the ring looks slimer but Big Show had very probably very advantageous wrestler shoes and/plus maybe Big Show lost height this last years too

Show doesn't look much shorter than 6'11 listed Winston James Francis, compared to 6'4 Henry Simmons and Randy Orton.

Click Here

There is though zero chance Winston is 6'11. He is more like a 6'9 - 6'9.5 guy. For some reason Big Rob still holds him at 6'11.
Canson said on 18/Mar/20
@Robbe: the pic with Kane where they said he doesn’t look more than 6’5 range is not a good pic either. Boomer is closer to the camera and on camera he still looks pretty close to 6’4” with James brown etc. maybe he shrunk to 6’3.5-.75 but that’s it
Robbe said on 17/Mar/20
6'4 Boomer here with Show, Kane, and Wilder.

Click Here

Kane and Wilder are both loosing 2in due to being further away from the camera. Their heads look tiny lol. Big Show's head looks the same size as Boomer's. Surely Show has bigger head than Boomer? Means Show is most likely also loosing height there. Anyway, 6'7 is bollocks for Show, looks at least 6'9 compared to Kane and Wilder.

Show here with 6'2 Mark Henry, compared to 6'10.5 Suotamo. Both guys next to Suotamo are 6'5.

Click Here

Suotamo looks about 1.5in taller in my opinion. That would make Show around 6'9. Depending on Henry is really 6'2.

Show and Strowman here with 6'3.5 Randy Orton.

Click Here

Wrestling photos are a bit tricky cause you never know if they are wearing internal lifts or not.
Linke said on 16/Mar/20
CVV claims 5'10" and does look close to it. Mark Henry is 6'2" based on Rob's listing.
Roderick said on 14/Mar/20
@Canson Big Show can look 6'7" at times. Look up ASL Ice Bucket challenge with 6'1" Mark Henry and max 6'3.25" Jon Jones. He looks max 6'7.5" and also when a guy estimated at around 5'8" (Chris Van Vilet I think) interviewed Big Show, Show looked only 6'7" as well. There is a chance Show is only in that range barefoot, but I'd say a chance at 6'9" max is low but still possible.
Robbe said on 14/Mar/20
Here 6'10 listed Big Show, 6'11 listed Winston James Francis, and 6'10.5 listed Joonas Suotamo, all standind next to 5'10 range guys. Suotamo looks tallest to me. He is the only one who's chin is above the drawed 5'10 line.

Click Here

Suotamo has also huge head, close to Big Show's and Winston's for sure. In my opinion, Big Show and Winston are both overlisted on this site, while Suotamo is close enough of his 6'10.5 listing. 6'7 is definitely too low for Show, but he can look 6'8-6'9 range in many pictures, like above.
Canson said on 13/Mar/20
He was more than 1” shorter than Shaq. Was more like 1.5”. I could buy 6’10.25 when they were in the ring or maybe 6’10” flat. Today he can look 6’9” range but not 6’7

I also like to draw a certain male appendage on someone's face w/ indelible ink when they're passed out drunk, but I digress.

Given that I'm around 6'7" w/ a head that's around 10.5" long means that I don't "forget," as you so delicately put it.

I posted pics of a fan next to Show, Khali, Patrick Ewing, and Brook Lopez -- all of whom have big heads, and guess what, Show looked all of 6'9" in comparison to the others.

@Roderick: I wouldn’t call you a downgrader. And I’m not sold on Show at 7’0” myself. I lean more toward peak 6’11” range. By the way I don’t like when people use that term because you’re simply estimating below Rob’s listing which is fair being many celebs are overlisted. It’s funny that the ones who estimate above Rob aren’t called inflators universally. They’re usually left alone
Roderick said on 27/Feb/20
A lot of people call me out for downgrading, yet I'm part of the few that think Show was 7'0".

@Canson Yeah, especially now it's ridiculous. I can see how a 7'0" wrestler claiming 7'2" isn't that absurd, but when you're 6'9"? That's another story
The Ben said on 27/Feb/20
Hey Storis
How come you don't show any of my friends pics where he looks above 6'2? Plenty of them where he has significant height on 6ft+ celebs?

Is it because you pick only pictures that suit your narrative. All photos that make people look short instead of actual unbiased photos?

I'll get myself measured by Rob at a UK comic con, will take Brendan as well. Sure you'll then say Robs lying and he's only 5'6 lol.

Back to big show. Wasn't he measured as a basketball player at 7'025 peak height in his early 20's?

He's certainly lost some height over the last 10-15 years. I'd be interested to see him face to face with Nash today in 2020. I expect there's not much in it at all.
It looks like shows knees barely straighten, they also bow inwards and he looks to have scoliosis or at least a kyphotic tilt. All this ads up to a couple of inches or more. (Obviously best guess as I've never met him)
Robbe said on 27/Feb/20
Big Show vs Thor picture is a tuff one cause Show is way closer to the camera. Just to compare, Kane looking almost the same height as Show, thanks to the camera angle.

Kane gaining 3-4in from his position there? Or is he wearing huge lifts?
Roderick said on 26/Feb/20
@Murtuza It's not 100%, because there is a chance of 6'11.5" as well.

But I agree he was probably 7'0" but no more.

Never saw that Pic before, Big show there looks in between 6'9.5/6'10"
Canson said on 26/Feb/20
@Roderick: lol I love how they inflate the big wrestlers like that. I doubt a peak Big Show even cracked the 7’0” mark in the afternoon. I would’ve guessed 6’11” but maybe he’s a hair over the mark 6’11 and change best case. I would really say that his 7’0” plus was in shoes especially if he’s saying Andre was 7’1-7’2
Canson said on 26/Feb/20
@Edwards: I don’t rule out something like 6’9.5 today or even at a huge stretch 6’9 although that looks more posture related, but under 6’9” I probably wouldn’t go that low (imho)

Big Show is closer to the camera, which is perhaps the reason why he makes the mountain look small.

It's tricky to tell how much Big Show gained from his position, could be 1.5 inches
RoelC said on 25/Feb/20
Big Show appeared on Shaq's funhouse last month during the superbowl. That there are no pics of the two of them together. I did find these two pics of them standing at the exact same location on the red carpet.

photoshop the 2 images together and you get this.

I see maybe a 2,5 inch difference at most. About the same difference as when they squared off against each other in the ring, during the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania in 2016 and definately not the 4-inch+ difference that those red carpet pics from 2016 seem to imply.

Footwear for both guys:
Shaq: Click Here
Big Show: Click Here

So far I've seen no evidence to imply that Shaq has lost height. He still looks 7ft to me.
Canson said on 25/Feb/20
@Robbe: I think that’s the only pic of them and I can remember Show being closer to the camera
Roderick said on 24/Feb/20
Rob... if anything, Show should be lowered to 6'9.75". He is no way 6'10" today. There is a zero percent chance Show is 6'10".
Canson said on 24/Feb/20
@Robbe: sorry. Meant to say he’s tilting his head up in the one
Robbe said on 24/Feb/20
@Canson, are you referring to that heavily tilted picture where KD is leaning backwards and Show is closer to the camera? It's totally useless picture to judge their heights. Or is there another, better picture?

Here Show with 189cm guy, and 6'8 Kevin Nash with 189cm guy.

Here 6'10 guy with 6'7 guy, and Show standing tall with 6'7 slouching LeBron James.

I asked earlier if there's a recent pic where Show looks like 6'10 with normal footwear, but got no replies. Guess there isn't any?
Roderick said on 23/Feb/20
@Robbe I think there is at least 3" between Kane and Show. Kane at 6'5.75" and Show at 6'9"
Canson said on 23/Feb/20
@Robbe: I doubt he’s under 6’9” flat. The problem is his posture with Kane may have been off and you see in the pics you posted the one guy (the constant variable) is tilting his head up with Show whereas he’s not with the other two. I used to think he was 6’10” minimum because he was taller than Kevin Durant in the pic they had but it’s likely he’s lost height today. How much is to be determined but I think it’s fair to say he’s probably not under 6’9” going off the variety of pics we have seen (across the spectrum), but it’s also fair to say he likely wasn’t as tall as Rob lists him here for his peak height. I never believed Big Show was 7’0”. I could buy 6’11” flat at the pinnacle (maybe). So I could see a reduction to that and maybe to 6’9.5 for his current to be fair for his current since there are times when he could look over 6’9” flat
Canson said on 23/Feb/20
@Edwards: I appreciate that! And I feel that you are and show the same to everyone here! You’re also a stand up dude!

Chris 5 4 said on 20/Feb/20
My first comment here. Great new pic of Nash and Khali.
Click Here

I’m gonna post it here cause I’m more invested in Show’s height. I’m thinking 6’9 flat at this point, maybe dipping under in the evening, maybe wakes up 6’9.5. The evidence is too strong at this point. If Nash is 6,8 which he may not be, Khali is hovering around 6,10, and Show 6’9, maybe slightly under by mid day. I’m a big fan of Big Show but I’ve noticed his height situation for a while. He’s noticed as well, he made a comment to Undertaker recently on a pic that shows this.

As for peak height, I think he’s lost a lot of height, but he probably wasn’t 7. At the most 6,11. About that I think. Love this site by the way!
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Edwards: agreed. I’ve had several times where I’ve stood up for someone or myself here. You get posters like that who will feel they “wasted their time” trying to sway you in one direction and they resort to pettiness when you don’t agree with them. And then you get the posters who will pick on someone like him but you get the occasional “troll” comment or thoughtless comment where Rob lists a celeb like Conan 6’4” and they would say he’s 6’5” or 6’6” when he’s never claimed either and of course there are no pics to back it up. I used that because Conan likely hasn’t lost height from his peak. But nothing is said to those comments (at least not by the people who will say something to Sotiris). Instead Sotiris will receive that backlash for his comments where he is showing evidence in the form of pics and videos, and they criticize his evidence and him as a person and sometimes the comments are very insulting. I remember once i asked 2 separate posters that (I called them out) as to why they don’t make those types of comments to people who guess above Rob’s listing consistently. I called one out because he ignored a comment about 5 comments before and the other who I was a bit more aggressive toward because he was constantly upgraded celebs even more than the first poster. Only the one who upgraded came back to me with a response and it was a lazy excuse that was consistent with his own beliefs and principles and I doubt he actually believed what he said. But That’s why I respect you Christian Roderick Riccardo and Sotiris a lot along with some others because you all stand up for others. You all stood up for Sotiris too and I respect Sotiris for being strong and doing what he does because I know with me I would dish it back and be rude back with them as I don’t back down from something like that. A lot of people I feel act that way toward other posters in attempts to get them to stop posting on the site because they don’t like their content and because Rob (wisely) doesn’t tell them to stop being this is a free site. I don’t see what else they seem to gain doing that. It’s that or them being childish and selfish because they “don’t like the poster or what they have to say” which is silly being it’s a public site where Sotiris hasn’t done anything wrong nor did he say anything disrespectful
RP said on 20/Feb/20
@ Canson...Ric is now 5’8.5”...5’8.75” (MAX)!! That was the 3rd time I’ve met Ric during my life. He’s lost a bunch of height since the 1990’s !!! Dates I’ve met Ric.
1997: 5’11” to 5’11.25”
2009: 5’10” to 5’10.25”
2019: 5’8.5” to 5’8.85”
All assuming Ric never was using any footwear tricks.
Riccardo5'7 said on 19/Feb/20
@Rob

I was a bit impressed from the picture with Christian, and yeah also from others. Even with his 6'2.5 friends he does look 5'11" range. And I don't mean 5'11.75.

Said that I don't see why someone should lie about his height, in the moment that on this site people like Ben "use" their height to help us to understand how tall is a celebrity and not for hang out with a girl so they shouldn't have reason to lie.
But of course sometimes still some doubt, and people who measure them self can always make a mistake in both directions
edwards said on 18/Feb/20
@ canson

dude,fully agreed with everything you said.i too downgrade under rob’s estimation.i dont mind standing with the poster who gets attacked and call out for no reason.i love too and i will always stand by them nomatter what untill i stay in this site.you too dude,you always had back of the posters who gets called out and gets attacked for no reason.if sotiris estimation was say as high as 6’6.25 for taker and 6’7 for kane then i’ll bet that sotiris wouldn’t get attacked nor gets called out and it will be a different story.what is wrong with sticking with personal opinion? you,me and christian probably have same estimation and infact every body has different estimation and i dont see any reason to attack on basics of estimation.i see those people who are attacking sotiris are same people who got no evidence to back his/her claim.i have single question with the poster who attacks sotiris or calls him out “if they got any problem with sotiris and his estimation then don’t interact with or otherwise”.sotiris havent said anyone to not post their estimation on height”.if anybody dont want to agree with the guy then stop agreeing or don’t interact or atleast show respect to the guy.yeah,dude you said everything i wanted to say.Amen.


@ editor rob

yes,it would be interesting if Ben posted some sort of instagram clip or photo beside a tape measure or a stadiometer then that would be interesting.
Editor Rob
If you are showing other people photos of yourself and celebs, I think it can useful to show your height, because it can remove doubt and unnecessary arguments.

Ben was clearly shorter than wwe ex superstar Christian, and not only by an inch.
Ben is a couple of inches shorter next to 6 footers. Judging by the pictures of course.
Editor Rob
He also was close to guys like Karl Urban and not much less than Weathers, so sometimes he can seem near his claim too.

@RP: how tall would you say Flair was?
RP said on 18/Feb/20
@ Sotiris & @ Ben Bell
The pic with Ben & Ric Flair is very telling & proves Sotiris’s point. There is no way Ben is 6’0 1/4” barefoot if that’s how he stacks up to Ric Flair. You all have seen my pics with Ric Flair from a few months ago. Sotiris even posted them off of my FB page to prove our points. I’m 5’11” barefoot... To be exact, I’m 5’11 1/8” mid morning a few hours out of bed & 5’10 3/4” late evening (8pm-9pm) and compare me vs Ric Flair to Ben vs Ric Flair, LOL! I’ll give Ben this...we do not know Ric Flair’s footwear that day he met Ben. My latest encounter with Ric that I posted, he was wearing what looked like custom made 1.25” black & purple dress shoes. I had on 1.5” footwear. I had about a 0.25” footwear advantage on Ric. Pics were taken @ approximately 7pm.

i have to come up for sotiris defense,i dont know how tall ben is but i have seen from the very beginning that people who has estimation under rob’s listing gets called out or gets attacked.atleast sotiris got a evidence to prove his claim.i doubt he was 7 feet at peak might be slightly lower.

Amen Edwards! And I have no issue with Ben either. Seems like a decent guy. But in general in Sotiris’s case on other pages and celebs it’s the same. it’s also people who offer a strong opinion like That that get that treatment. But I would say to people that if they have a problem with Sotiris (when he estimates low or they don’t like his comments) to take it up with Rob lol! Most people give him Or anyone else grief thinking they are going to change the way he is or that maybe they’ll tire him out or insult him so badly to where he would want to leave. But of course The only person that can make him leave is Rob which people need to remember. A lot will gripe like that as if it’s there place to tell someone who is a reasonable guy from my interactions with him that he’s a bad person is what I’ve seen. And I don’t like how it’s always about him being “rude”. There are many of us such as both of us Riccardo Christian etc who have never experienced that with him. He is “rude” because he posts a lot and because people don’t agree with his estimates. I bet if he did the status quo or estimated above Rob that he would be ignored if people didn’t agree with him instead of chastised like he is now. People take exception and call him a troll when he estimates below Rob. And I love (I’ve been called a downgrader too) when it’s always an attack which the ones who don’t do that rarely get. They get left alone regardless of how silly it sounds for someone to upgrade

And Ben w/ MAX 6'1.5" Sting... Click Here

In no way is Ben Bell his claim of 6'0.25".

It's worth noting that Ben thought Eddie Hall was 6'3", lol. Obviously, he thinks Big Show is 6'10", and not 6'9"... Also, the pics of Ben w/ Hall and Sting were taken from a low angle... If the camera was higher up, Ben would look even shorter.





One thing I like seeing is that more and more ppl are beginning to see the light and are agreeing w/ me, so that when a guy like Ben Bell tries to manipulate others, it goes nowhere.

Some photos he doesn't look his claim, others I think he can look near it.

Big Show looks around 6'10 today. Could have been around the 7ft mark at his peak. He's definitely lost height and his posture is really suffering with age.
I saw him fairly close up in 03 and I didnt think he was 7ft back then.

You're a sad fraud. If you're really 6'0.25, then I'm the Queen of England. Next time you're in Liverpool, make sure you wear some internal lifts that'll make Big Show proud. Stop embarrassing yourself, B-B-B-Bennie (and The Jets). No way in hell is Show 6'10" now and NO way you're the height you claim.



@Editor Rob Please enlighten us. Who's really 6'0.25", Gurley or this ridiculous joke...? (I love how Google has Flair as 6'1", lol.) I "love" the way punks like Bennie come out of semi-retirement just to rail against me the second they see me on here. Pathetic. Love is definitely in the air. It's Valentine's Day, after all.

Really, you dont talk to anybody like this if your 2in taller/shorter than your opponent.

Show is minimum 3in shorter than 6'11.5 Shag. Probably a bit more.

Agree. Show has lost an incredible amount of height due to a complete hip replacement and back surgeries. When he was in the WCW back in the mid-late 90's he was between 7'0" and 7'1". Today he's lucky if he's a full 6'8". Someone people on here are beyond obsessed with being in denial and subjective is their middle name.

Mikey97 said on 19/Jan/20
Its funny how with all this evidence of Show looking 6'7", also goes with the fan that claimed he's 6'7" in the infobox.

Maybe that special fan got access to a medical measurment of Shows. An actual 6'10" guy wouldn't look that short next to Shaq. Just no way.

@Rob You should really downgrade him to 6'9". There is no way he's 6'10", it's simply impossible.

Agreed. Rob takes years to downgrade people, even with a lot of solid pictures and videos that disprove the current height listing. Even if Shaq is only 7'0" flat, he still has minimum 3" on Big Show today, if not a full 4"+... Btw, I think Big Show was OVER 7'0" in his WCW days.
Editor Rob
If I see enough to go with another figure I will, I have seen a fair bit of Show looking sub 6ft 10...enough to say 6ft 9.5 today? It's possible.

@Roderick I doubt Show was ever more than 6'11". Andre was never more than 6'10.5" IMO.

@edwards The fact that they look so "short" now might mean that it's not all height loss. Maybe they did wear internal lifts...
Public Enemy said on 11/Feb/20
@BendyUK
I think Show is standing on his toes to reduce the pressure on his damaged right leg which looks pretty damaged . Sure there is a heel on his right boot but is that representative entirely due to lifts ?.... always a possibility.
Today I give him 6’10 max If standing for a measurement.

Look how much Big Show’s left bootless foot his having to tip toe, to line up & level out with his right foot, which is still wearing his wrestling boot & is flat on the floor. This photo proves that Big Show wears 3” lifted wrestling boots!! 2” inch heels + a 1” lift insert. BAM!!!

@Roderick: I think 6’11 range peak but not 7’
Roderick said on 10/Feb/20
@Miss Sandy There is zero chance Show is 6'11" today. Shaq is max 7'0", and there is clearly more than 1 inch between the two.

Show looking 6'10"+ with Strowman Click Here
miko said on 10/Feb/20
Show is looking 6'10+ with ease with 6'4.5/6'5 Paunovic, that's over 5 inches and he is nowhere near standing straight, but since when has posture ever mattered..
Roderick said on 9/Feb/20
@Sotiris That photo looks like it was in the late 90s.

Do you think Show had a chance of measuring 7'0" at some point? His basketball photos make him look like an actual giant.
Canson said on 9/Feb/20
@Sotiris: holy cow! Welcome back my man!

miko said on 8/Feb/20
I'd be shocked if he measured under 6'10 in military posture.

As for the Strowman photo, hes leaning to the left and his boot is off, of course his foot isn't going to be flat on the floor.

He is still at least 3.5/4" taller than Strowman in ring staredowns.
Lyle said on 8/Feb/20
Not over 6'10, great photo by @BendyUK, he looks about 6'10 in fact in that photo and it just shows how much his lifts give him, also that recent photo on Takers Instagram. I can't say 6'8 because that would make Kane like 6'5 but more like 6'9 tops with Kane around 6'6.
Roderick said on 8/Feb/20
@Murtuza I agree he could have reached 7'0" at his peak but I can't buy higher.

6'9.5" today maybe?
BendyUK said on 8/Feb/20
A good indication to how big the lifts are in Show's wrestling boots, he's on tip toes here to compensate the lift height in his right boot. I'd be surprised if he measured 6'9" barefoot nowadays.

💪🎂🎁 Happy Birthday Big Show! 🎁🎂💪

Here's wishing wrestler Big Show a fabulous 48th! I knew that I'd find the Star on the Top 50 listings, and sure enough, he was there - in at number 14 this week!

A huge 7ft peak height;
An almost-as-huge 6ft11 today. 😁🥚🥛


🎂🎁💪😁🎂🎁💪😁🎂🎁💪😁🎂🎁💪😁
Murtuza said on 7/Feb/20
Haha really funny that people are saying big show is 6’8” or 6’9” like get a brain he’s 6’10” flat today and 7’0.25”
Roderick said on 5/Feb/20
@Canson I understand.
Canson said on 1/Feb/20
@Roderick: some people have their preferences as far as who they like as posters. In many cases, someone who underestimates is seen as the problem here whereas a person who always guesses above Rob’s listing very little is said. Then the in between where someone simply guesses At his listings all the time which takes little efforts. Miko doesn’t strike me as any of that though so it’s possible that he just had a personal issue with Sotiris’s posts. But it is a free site
The Ben said on 29/Jan/20
He really looks to have lost some height.
6'10 today would be the highest I would go.
Roderick said on 28/Jan/20
Lol Big Show commented "dead man you look really tall, I think I'm shrinking" lol.

I think you should lower Show Rob
edwards said on 28/Jan/20
hope sotiris gravas will be back sooner than later.he was one of the few poster’s who underestimated celebs under rob’s listing.

@ sotiris gravas

you’re being missed man.hope to see you comment on this site later
Roderick said on 27/Jan/20
@Rob.. Big Show looks max 6'5" in a recent photo with Undertaker. You should downgrade him to 6'9" range.

@Miko Why is it good he is gone?
Canson said on 27/Jan/20
Robbe said on 25/Jan/20
Sotiris indeed was (and still is) good at guessing heights. He said ages ago Show is not over 6'9. He also said Richters is not over 7ft, which is also true.

Beats me though how Show can be 6'9 if he is at least 3in shorter than Shaq, who has revealed he is only 6'11? Well, i have always been bad at math lol :D
Editor Rob
Shaq was playing with his height.

I don't take the 6ft 11 claim as literal.

@Robbe: shaq doesn’t have 3” on Big Show. That’s more like 1.5” in the pics years ago. Not sure if Show has lost More height today. Show can look closer to 6’9” at times but then again can look 6’10” at times

@Editor Rob: while I doubt 6’11” flat for Shaq, 6’11.5-7’0 range has always been a possibility talking about an afternoon height
Vegas' said on 27/Jan/20
Robbe we can't see feet, ground or stance in those outside shots with Shaq.

I was at Wrestlemania 32 and Show/Shaq did not look 3-4 inches apart in-ring and that was same year as the espy outside video. So either Wight lost a dramatic amount of height between April and July of 2016 or Wights wrestling boots gave him 2-3 inches over Shaqs basketball boots (which themselves give minimum 1.5 inches over barefoot most likely) or Shaq is on higher ground/not level/Wight has terrible posture

That's Wight and Shaq at Wrestlemania in April 16. The soles of their boots look similar enough Click Here

miko said on 25/Jan/20
Thank goodness he's gone for a while ;)

As for weird photos, take a look on The Undertakers Instagram. A weird angle makes Undertaker look well over 6'10!

Just shows you not to trust every photo you see, as in reality it's about 4 inches between them.
BendyUK said on 25/Jan/20
Can't see footwear or floor level but Show is really struggling to look 6'8" here with Taker.

@Canson - nobody cares

@Thisismoe: stop posting under multiple usernames. Just use one. Also you must have an obsession with me. I’ve already confirmed that you are Melosucks, Druss, and Frederick Holier. You’re a troll

@Editor Rob: why do you continue to let him post under multiple usernames. Pretty obvious when he reappears on this site under his name on a different page And both posts on the same day after the hiatus he took previously. He’s not fooling anyone
Editor Rob
If folk repeatedly do it, then I would hope they stop and stick with the one name...

Sotiris might just be taking a break from CH, but he might be back soon or later. I've taken a break a few times myself, although not as long as Sotiris.
Roderick said on 21/Jan/20
@Canson It's funny because his estimates were really good. I used to think Kane was 6'6.5", but when I seen stuff Sotiris was posting, I quickly went down to 6'6". He was good at guessing heights.
Editor Rob
You could always follow Gravas on Twitter, although I would caution he might be more than PG-13.
Roderick said on 20/Jan/20
@Mikey97 I agree, but I think 6'9.5" is a better downgrade than 6'9". Show can still look close to 6'10".
Canson said on 20/Jan/20
@Roderick: I miss interacting with him too. And that post is another example of the abuse someone who estimates below Rob’s listing like he does, receives here on Celebheights. I rarely see posters here (and there are a bunch) who estimate above Rob’s listing get called out in posts about their pictures or their estimates. You have been here long enough to see some of them and It’s ridiculous because they just get ignored yet With someone like Sotiris, posters would go out of their way to bash him for no reason
Mikey97 said on 19/Jan/20
Its funny how with all this evidence of Show looking 6'7", also goes with the fan that claimed he's 6'7" in the infobox.

Maybe that special fan got access to a medical measurment of Shows. An actual 6'10" guy wouldn't look that short next to Shaq. Just no way.

@Rob You should really downgrade him to 6'9". There is no way he's 6'10", it's simply impossible.
Murtuza said on 17/Jan/20
@Deep Purple no at his peak if he stood straight he was easily over 7 feet
Taryn said on 17/Jan/20
Even in his prime he wore big boots putting an inch and a half on him and kanes lifts put 2 inches and a bit on him so if kane was 6,9 peak with 7ft show then this picture which shows them eye to eye in those lifts Kanes 6,11 and Show is 7,1 which makes perfect sense given you can see barely barely 2 inches probably half an inch less in this picture from 98 or 99

Dion Dawkins measured 6’3 7/8. Whether that is his afternoon height is a different question
