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".

@Pierre: here is another picture with Shaq. I don’t think Shaq was 7’0.25. He wore orthotics in his shoes admittedly. I give him max 7’0” peak height but still here is Big Show in front of him. Show wasn’t even down to a flat 6’10” then. He was still 6’10” plus unless Shaq has lost height by then too. Shaq recently measured on TNT and was still around 7’0”. He claimed 6’11.75 and that’s the minimum I could see for him. I believe Show could still measure 6’10” with perfect posture or at worst only a hair under that mark

That’s about 3cm maybe 1.5” if all variables are factored in.

Big Show/Dirk Nowitzki listed sometimes 6"11' sometimes 7"0' in web,Dirk who shrink a lot here = Click Here

Click Here Dirk and Shaq listed 7"0.25'

Click Here camera very low that advantage a lot the closest guy ,so here Big Show a lot closer has a big advantage plus Dirk isn't straight

@Canson By considering angle of camera a bit low plus Lennox closer to the camera plus Charles Barkley in poor posture Lennox is never close to 6"5' or even 6"4' here.Maybe 6"3'...

I disagree respectfully. Lewis was minimum a peak 6’4.5 guy. I don’t rule out 6’4.75

Pierre, Lewis had significant height on Holyfield 20 years ago..

Now here is Evander next to Will Smith 6"1.5' slouching a lot but still has to looking down to talk to a young Evander .... Click Here .By this comparison Lennox is never close to 6"5' or 6"4' range .Not even sure he's full 6"3' by this comparison

@Pierre: go look for the Tv show In the House. LL Cool J was the star. He and Lewis boxed once on the show. Lewis has around 4” if not slightly less than LL. I don’t believe LL was 6’1.5” I have max 6’1” if not under but that’s pretty close to 4”. If Lewis is 6’2.5 it would be less than 2” between them. It’s not. LL only comes up to his eyebrow area

@Canson Click Here = At the top of their heads with a line you can see Lennox is max same height as Charles barkley here,but without counting Lennox stands a lot closer to the camera than Charles plus stands in better posture.And low camera that advantage a bit more again the closest man

Very possible they were both 6’4.5 peak height being Barkley also got measured 6’4.75 and 6’4 5/8” so just different times of the day. Either way Lewis was about Barkley’s height not 1-2” shorter

Would peak Show be 7’ when busting a gut?
Editor Rob
I still believe it's possible
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Sep/20
@Riky
Like Canson said, some of it could be posture related. And the fact that Big Show has a heavier build than all those guys you mentioned.
6'3 Julian said on 19/Sep/20
I think his weight and posture may have kept him down a little, he probably would have looked 7’0 in his prime if he stood straight and sucked his stomach in
Big Lul said on 19/Sep/20
@Riky I agree that he was no taller than 6’11 peak cause he only had 4 inches on 6’7 peak undertaker and 2 inches on Kevin Nash peak and Footwear advantage Kane peak

Nowadays I would say that he’s about 6’9-6’9.5 max now or he might just be 6’9-6’9.25 at best now.
Pierre said on 19/Sep/20
look at recent comment on 16 september on Kane's page ,there is a pic inwhich Big Show wear only one wrestler shoe and has to tiptoeing a lot on his left bare foot to stand straight,that could explain why Shaq looks like he dwarfs him in the pics out of ring Click Here Click Here

6'11.5" peak, 6'9.5" today in 2020.

I doubt he was that tall at his peak, today I think he is taller than guys like Durant but barely taller. At same time I don't know if someone like Kanter would be really shorter Tha Big Show, I doubt. Sure someone like C. Bosh is taller than Wight today.

6'11" peak max barefoot.
6'9.5 today, don't completely rule out a fraction less.
Canson said on 16/Sep/20
@Christian: I would say 6’11.5 or 6’11.25” peak. I don’t believe he was ever 7’0 either. Today 6’9.5 minimum but with good posture he could surprise us and still measure 6’10”.

In all seriousness though rob maybe 2000 was the year big show lost his first half inch?
Editor Rob
I think near age 30 is a possibility. In Wrestling, the bigger they are, the harder they fall, and the more shrinkage they suffer.
JT said on 13/Sep/20
Click Here

Click Here I saw Holyfield at LAX back in the late 1990s when he was leaving for his fight against Tyson in Las Vegas and he looked ~ 6’1”. IIRC Rob has him at 6’1.25”. That’s pretty close to a 4 inch difference and Holyfield had almost 3 inches on Tyson.

Tyson looked pretty small in the ring next to Lewis. Not sure why Lewis' height is even subject to serious debate.

Pierre, Lewis measured 6’4.75”. That looks very much believable next to 6’4 5/8” Charles Barkley. Lewis is not 6’2.5”

Also see Lewis on In the House. He is at least 6’4.5”.

SeanR said on 10/Sep/20
Hi Rob,

Not sure if you have looked at Show’s history but when do you think he started losing height?

He doesn’t look as tall say in 2003 than he did in 1995. Could he have started shrinking in his early thirties because of his weight? Evidence seems to suggest that.
Editor Rob
some point in his 30's I believe the damage was starting to take effect. I'd really need to go back over again his history in detail to try to figure the exact years he started looking shorter.

The big lul said on 7/Sep/20
@riky: Ok I had to make sure that I’m not the only one seeing that as well. Cause he looks 2.5-3 inches taller than maybe 6’7-6’7.5 Ike catcher, which we all know at this point that big show is no taller than 6’9.25 max or maybe a low of 6’9 now. If big show was barefoot it’ll be a 1.5-2 inch difference between the two.
Sammie Jones said on 7/Sep/20
I don’t think he’s on his tiptoes. I see 3-3.5 inches there. I’d give Big Show if he’s standing straight 6’10 1/2-6’11 1/4 if he’s not slouching and fixes his posture.

@Riky = Right!My computer screen is not broken and I see the same thing as you! :)
------------------
Well I'm looking at the same pic on a 4K 40-inch screen and Big Show's feet are firmly planted on the ground. The short video that accompanies that pic on Catcher's instagram confirms that even more.

Your goal seems to be getting Big Show to the shortest height possible, so my guess is you're just seeing what you wanna see.

Why not add that the pic is tilted in Catcher's favour and that Catcher is standing closer to the camera. That is quite noticeable.

If big show was actually 6ft10, a 7ft1 khali or shaq would look noticeably taller which isn't the case.

Big show is 7foot, no questions about it

Probably both similar shoes this time = Click Here Click Here

the camera is very low and we can not really see the real difference of height but watch how much higher are Shaq's shoulders compared to first pic with probably Big Show with advantageous shoes
Canson said on 4/Sep/20
@Riky: I would actually give Jordan the full 6’9.75. He likely is an afternoon measurement. He was slightly taller than Durant. I would put Durant in that range however. It’s about a CM difference

Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Sep/20
@Hahahahajjj
Neither of them were ever 7'1", especially not Shaq. It's possible that Show was 7'0" peak (although even then I think that's pushing it), but certainly not 7'0" today.
The big lul said on 4/Sep/20
If big show is 7ft then why is he 3-3.25 inches shorter than 7’0-7’0.25 max Shaq or is only 2 inches taller than 6’7 Ike catcher or is 2.5- 2.75 inches taller than 6’6.25-6’6.5 Kane and Braun Strowman. Nowadays it goes like this

Undertaker: 6’5.75-6’6 max peak: 6’7
Kane: 6’6-6’6.5 Peak: 6’7.25 max
Braun Strowman 6’6.25-6’6.5
Big show: 6’9- 6’9.25 max Peak: 6’11

@Vegas: I’d give Durant a bit over 6’9” today. I would probably go with 6’9.25-.5 range today. He edged Demarcus Cousins who I have 6’9” flat afternoon height. It’s rare that I could see a player growing but he and Anthony Davis along with Jason Maxiell (measured 6’5 11/16 in an International League) are examples. The latter may not have been at a low but I could see something around 6’5.5”. But for comparison purposes I agree with you on them since that’s just maybe 1cm above where he was measured

A couple of years ago, I met Goldberg at a car show and went over to ask for a photo - he immediately commented on my height, and we had a (very quick) laugh about it before he took photos with the next million people.

He said “I’ve worked with a lot of tall guys, but you’re damn tall!”

“Not The Giant though.” He was quick to add.

I’m nowhere near as ‘big’ as Big Show (I’m actually very lanky for a guy my height) but I did find it interesting that he felt the need to do the job, so to speak, on Show’s height.

I’d love to have met him during his peak, to see whether he was actually noticeably taller - although at the time I would’ve been about 5 years old haha.
Vegas' said on 30/Aug/20
Photo comparisons are nice but you can't place all your faith in them even full length photos.

Take these examples. Big Show and Dirk Nowitzki Click Here

7'5 barefoot measured Yao Ming and Nowitzki (similar posture) Click Here

6'9 barefoot measured Kevin Durant and Nowitzki (again similar stance) Click Here

Based on those comparisons Show looks maybe 5 inches at worst taller than Yao and 2-3 inches taller than Durant. Of course reality is probably different, at least in 2020.

@Christian: interesting. he had the nerve to make this comment to me on a different page. Show at 7’0” plus peak and 7’0” today? No. He’s not as tall as Shaq and this was several years ago. Shaq claims to be 6’11.75”. The max I buy for Shaq is 7’0” barefoot. But the trend here of inflation is obvious. Andre was never 7’0” either. He was listed Either 6’10 or 6’11 at various times

Lol,no Canson ,this is not the reality ,or rather this the reality of the difference of height between Big Show and Shaq when Big Show wear advantageous wrestler shoes!

Pierre we have video of that particular day Click Here

Highly doubt Kane dropped under 6'6 because he was taller than a 6'5 3/4 barefoot measured NFL guy recently enough and had 3+ inches on Randy Orton both in dress-shoes just few years ago. He hasn't had any major surgery either that would account for such a big height loss so young.

Julian 6'3"

Big Show was never 7' barefoot in the afternoon. He was max 6'11", of course it's just my opinion as it's my opinion that you are funny in your guesses....

I'm thinking for a long time big show is same range as kavin Durant.

Stop arguing over who’s more idiotic. You both have lower IQs than the temperature of liquid nitrogen. Andre was 7’0 peak in the late 60s/early 70s. He shrunk to 6’10.5-6’11 by the early 80s because of his weight and was 6’9.5-6’10 at Mania 3. By then his bad posture, back surgeries and 500+ pound bodyweight had shrunk him. He was measured 6’9 post-mortem I think, which means he reasonably could’ve shrunk another inch by then
Lanky said on 24/Aug/20
There is absolutely zero chance he is 7ft now. I agree, there were times he actually looked over 7ft in his 20s, but nowadays he’s nowhere near.

Nowadays he gives off a 6’9-6’10” impression, although I’d be really interested to see how tall he could stand if he knew it was for a proper measurement.
Pierre said on 24/Aug/20
6"10' is too high for him to me,when Big Show wear classic shoes ,no wrestler shoes,Shaq tower over him Click Here.

Not funny. Big Show is still 6’10.5 minimum and probably 6’11

I’ll probably just go 6’9-6’9.25 max for big show at this point he doesn’t even look 6’10 with people like undertaker, Kane, Braun Strowman, and Drew McIntyre. But in his wrestling gear he’s probably 6’9.5-6’10 max. IMO I think it’s probably like this now

Drew McIntyre: 6’4.5
Undertaker: 6’5.75-6’6 max with perfect posture
Kane: 6’6-6’6.5
Braun Strowman:6’6.25-6’6.5
Big show: 6’9-6’9.25

Hi Rob,

Still any chance A-Train (Matt Bloom) gets a listing here?

It seems like he is one of the most requested wrestlers that I see on this site.

As I have posted in previous posts Bloom gave the 6’6” vibe at his peak. Plus he wore footwear that looked a little suspicious as he was very close in height to peak Undertaker, Kane and Matt Morgan. He also looked an inch taller that Test who is listed at 6’5” here.

For Bloom:
Peak: 6’6” (Close to 6’8” in big boots)
Current: 6’5”
Editor Rob
6ft 6 range peak is likely.
The big lul said on 9/Aug/20
Personally big show in the last 4 years hasn’t looked a legit 6’10 guy. Looked about 3.5 - 4 inches shorter than 7ft Shaq, 2.5- 3 inches taller than 6’6.5 max Braun Strowman and looked 4.5- 5 inches max taller than 6’4.5 drew mcintyre. So I think it’s about time that big show gets a downgrade to 6’9.25 to max 6’9.5
Khaja Qadaruddin said on 6/Aug/20
With all due respect to the giant big show.. His current listing need to be downgraded for sure Rob..He certainly don't look 6'10 with 7 feet Shaq at their last staredown outside the ring.

I am just over 6 foot... about 6 foot 2 in my combat boots. Paul was about 6 foot 10 I would say in tennis shoes. I say this because a guy I was deployed with was 6 foot 9 and Paul said to him "Gosh youre a tall dude... its not often someone can look me in the eye." But he had a footware advantage.

Kevin Nash always seemed 2.5 inches shorter than Big Show throughout their career.

Nowadays it’s more than likely an inch to an 1 1/2.

I saw that match between nash and Morgan. Morgan had on his obviously huge internal lifts and nash had those flats. Morgan had those same boots anytine he was in the ring with Kane.
Kan said on 20/Jul/20
If you look Kane Who have a 10 inch long head next to big show , is not impossible 11.5 inch, but again i don’t put his head as 12 inch

@JT
Thank you jt
Yes i think Rob was right. Nash has a 10.5 inch long head. I see Matt Morgan with kurt angle and he doesn’t seem to have a Much longer head. Probably 9.75 inch at most but not 10 considering that Billy gunn has a longer head than him.. Matt can seems extremly tall. For big show yes he has a bigger head than nash but not as big as 12... 1.5 inch between big show and nash is really too much, but 11.5 seems very believable

If Nash head is 10.25 then big show head is 10.7
Half of an inch difference is possible but not over. you have no idea what it means to have a 2 inch longer head. It’s maybe the difference between rob and big show, let alone the difference between Nash and big show.
If for you this is only 3/4 of an inch of difference, because rob has a 9.5 inch head
Click Here
Then I don't want to imagine how “big” 2 inches are for you 😂 and I don’t want to imagine big show head in this pic 🙈



Nash’s head isn’t much bigger than Rob’s if you look at them together . Look comparing people’s head isn’t the same as comparing one book to another! Big Shows head is really massive it’s 12 inches and Kevin Nash is not much over 10 inches.

I don’t wanna speak with a guy who considerer Roman and triple h head longer like 5ft6 guy 😂

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

Triple H head less than 10'' more like 9 inches
Kevin Nash probably 10.25''

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.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

Zech Smith has also been signed to a WWE developmental deal earlier this year.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

@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?

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
Pierre said on 19/May/20
@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 ...........
John barrett said on 17/May/20
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.
Pierre said on 16/May/20
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 ?

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 ?
---------------
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
Canson said on 14/May/20
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

@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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

This is getting to be fun... (I legally changed my name to "Storis," by the way.)


Hey Editor Rob (and everybody), check this out:


Ben Bell originally said his friend was 6'3"... yet now says he's 6'2.5".


Here's 5'8" Editor Rob w/ listed 6'3" Zachary Levi... Click Here

Now, look at Ben Bell's friend w/ 5'8" Charlie Heaton... Click Here

Friend w/ max 5'8.5" Ric Flair... Click Here

Friend w/ Ben Bell... Click Here


Ben Bell friend and maybe 6'3.5" (not 6'4") height-loss Adam Baldwin... Click Here
What I love is that Bell said that Baldwin had to be 6'4.5" b/c he looked too tall next to his pal, ahahahaha...

Ben Bell said on 9/Mar/19
Met him today along with a few other celebs. The only one who’s every bit his billed height.
I’d say 6’4.5. Much taller than I expected.



The day Ben Bell is confirmed 6'0.25 (used to say 6'0.5") and his friend 6'2.5" (after a CONFIRMED 5 hrs post-morning) is the day flying monkeys emerge from my backside.


P.S. Big Ben, you are NOT.

Show was 213 cm, Khali had 1 cm in him
Public Enemy said on 29/Feb/20
@Roderick
If you think Show was 7’ then Khali had to be taller peak. I don’t think Today Show is 6’10 max which is a 2’ height loss from peak.

Hey Storis
------------------------------

I'm supposed to take this guy seriously...?

Spend the day w/ Editor Rob, no lying down for an hour prior to getting measured, THEN by all means, at the end of a good 5 hours on your feet, share your findings here.

Same goes for your friend.

Here's your pal, Brendan Hood, w/ Kevin Nash... Click Here

Another fan, Dale Lindsay, w/ Nash... Click Here

Your pal and Dale are about the same height. You say your pal is 6'2.5", yet here's Dale w/ 6'2.5" Sam Jones... Click Here

And Brendan w/ Sam Jones -- who's OBVIOUSLY taller than Brendan... Click Here


In other words, SAVE ME YOUR BULL(BLEEP)... friend. You're not 6'0.25" and your pal ain't 6'2.5" (or 6'3", like you used to say, lol).



@Editor Rob I'd really love to know what usernames Ben goes by, besides "The Ben" and "Ben Bell."

@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.
UndertakerFrank said on 26/Feb/20
Ive met BIG CASS in Person and he was about 6ft 7 or 6ft 8 Show did have him by 2 to 3 inches

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)

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

Poster Ben Bell says that guy (his friend) is 6'2.5"... but this was him next to max 6'1.5" Eddie Hall:

Stone Cold called Big Show 7'2" on the recent Broken Skulls session he did this week.
Murtuza said on 25/Feb/20
Sorry for my language but some Dumba**’s saying big show is 6’8” or 6’9” get outta here he’s no where close. Current hes 6’10” PEAK HE WAS 100% 7’0”
RoelC said on 25/Feb/20
Can't recall this pic ever being posted here, even though it's from 2015.

Big Show is closer to the camera, which is perhaps the reason why he makes the mountain look small.
Editor Rob
It's tricky to tell how much Big Show gained from his position, could be 1.5 inches
