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

Yeah Shaq was standing next to a height gauge at around 7"2' in shoes,but apparently this height gauge could be a bit advantageous = here a guy measured 5"10' by his doctor(so 5"11' with 1 inch shoes) is nearly 6"0' mark by this height gauge and not around 5"11' mark Click Here Click Here .If the graduations are too short this means more you're tall more the height gauge in proportion will be generous.

@Pierre and Vegas: yea today Dirk may be taller but not in his prime (I doubt).

I seen Shaq on another show stand by a Height Chart & looked 7ft 2 in Shoes So Shaq might be 7.5 or 7ft 1 barefoot lowest 7ft flat
NCL said on 19/Nov/20
Pause at 21 seconds: Click Here Shaq looks to be 7’2” to me in his shoes. Could that be wrong? Just the camera angle? Looks 7’2” in shoes here Click Here

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

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

However, I do think Show was a full 7’ when he was a young man.
Pierre said on 19/Nov/20
Click Here Lol Big Show a lot closer to the camera ,camera very low,Dirk again in a terrible posture,wih all this advantages Big Show looks just one hair taller than Dirk!Dirk clearly dwarfs him one more time!
Click Here Watch how much big Show here has to looking up to talk to Dirk!
Robbe said on 19/Nov/20
Dirk is closer to the camera in both pictures, anybody can see it. So i pass them.

I also pass this pic with Trace Adkins.

Click Here

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

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

@Vegas:
I know right. Obviously a cherry picked photo.
Pierre said on 18/Nov/20
@Vegas= lol what a terrible posture Dirk has in your pic!But Dirk isn't closer to the camera in mine....Big show is probablly shorter than you believe
Robbe said on 18/Nov/20
If Big Show's head is around 12in, like it most likely is, then his eyeline is 5.75in.

Click Here

So if a 6'4 guy reach Show's eyeline, Show is 6'9.75 there.
Vincent Caleb said on 17/Nov/20
@Robbe:
Big shows eye level is over 5 inches for sure, but I am not sure Manganiello was reaching it in that pic. If he stood straighter he definitely would.

Canson said on 16/Nov/20
@Robbe: Vincent’s estimate could be as low as I could see him. I remember Christian and a few others guessed that and based on my estimate for Joe (6’4.5 afternoon) that could fit. He surely isn’t 6’8” though today. That explains why he doesn’t look 6’10 to some today

Robbe said on 16/Nov/20
When you post pictures of Show, check his head size Lol Drew has bigger head than Show there. Means he is a lot closer to the camera. That was really a terrible pic, really.

Show with 6'4.75 Joe Manganiello.

Click Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Same with Klay Thompson

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

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

I met Big Show and McIntyre in same building and Big Show was ~7 inches taller, both out of gear.

Wight made Luger look short in WCW Click Here

I have college listings and barefoot measurements of over 150 players on hand. Over 2 inch inflation is quite rare. Off top of my head only like 20 players out of 155 were overlisted by 2 inches over barefoot. Handful actually measured above their college listings but it was 1/4 inch above.
Pierre said on 15/Nov/20
@Canson I don't understand why you argue this guys Shaq and Big Show have similar shoes on ring.It's seems to me obvious Big Show has a good advantage here.Shaq only wear sneakers....The pic Shaq /Big Show wearing tuxedo say it all.Big Show closer to the camera is dwarfed by Shaq when he does not wear wrestler shoes Click Here

Of course low angles of camera are giving a good advantage.

Are you sure that the guy on the right in the Hafthor group pic is 217cm? Looks more like 211cm range to me. He looks to be about the same distance from the camera as Hafthor, but then again pics can be wonky.

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

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

We also tend to forget how big Show's head really is Click Here

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




@canson

well said.what is even more laughable is that he has current show at 6’8 and kane at 6’5 flat currently.

Some people just don't seem to realise how big difference is to stand slightly closer to the camera. Could you ever believe these guys with Thor are both 7'2?

Click Here

To be exact, the guy on the left is 218cm, and the guy on the right is 217cm. So, when you post pictures, bare in mind this. Being slighly closer to the camera can make a huge effect.

Some user, i wont mention his name, has posted like 1000 times, over and over and over again, this picture Thor vs Strowman. If we look at this "famous" pic, compared to the pic above, and focus on their feet, you get my meaning?

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

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

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

Click Here

Click Here

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

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

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

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

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

Big Show used to be over 7'0" (pre-height loss). Here is Kevin has with a good 3"-4" on 6'6" Sid Vicious:

And here's Big Show (The Giant as he was known back then) leaning in towards Kevin Nash and still having at least 3" on him: Click Here

A young Big Show was a VERY tall man (between 7'0" and 7'1"). Today he would be shorter than a PRIME Kevin Nash imo.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Click Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A video is worth 1000 pics. See vid below of Show talking to Shaq on the street, presumably without wrestling boots. Shaq looks about 3 inches taller. See also video below of Show talking to Kane. Kane is about 6-7 barefoot and Show was barely taller. I think Show's real barefoot height is around 6-9 peak.

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

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

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

Show has always been a posture guy.

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

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

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

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

@ 6"3' Julia = Insulting me won’t make Big Show and HHH bigger than they are next to Hafthor lol.You can continue to compare Big Show wearing wrestler shoes to other guys if you want.If I 'm an idiot then you probably need glasses ...
6'3 Julian said on 11/Oct/20
@Pierre Big Show is an acromegalic giant. He has much larger proportions than Hafthor. Big Show looks to easily be 6 inches taller than HHH and Show’s head is likely 10.5-11 inches. You are an idiot
Pierre said on 11/Oct/20
Click Here Triple H /Big Show in classic shoes(no wrestler shoes)

Triple H /Hafthor 6"7.5'(not perfectly straight) = Click Here

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

@Jt all the elevator shoes are not looking as big as the shoes you posted .If Big Show had around the same help as sneakers on his right foot he could put his left bare foot flat on the floor or nearly horizontal.Here he's tiptoeing a lot.And he's not tiptoeing with only the small foot of a woman...
Click Here = this shoes looking very classic,with a classic external heel are giving 2.3 inches...then imagine how much you can gain in this high wrestler shoes ....

So no we have no evidence...just a giant foot that had to tiptoeing a lot while the other foot stands comfortably at an unknow precise height in his wrestler shoe...I tend to believe if Wlad Klitschko was tipoeing as much as Big Show,some guys here would be the first to demonstrate the evidence :)

@Pierre you don’t seem to understand the concept of people having different shoulder and head levels. You seem to live in a world where everyone has the exact same shoulder level down to the nanometre. That’s not how it works. I have a shoulder level clearly 2-3” higher than other guys at or near my height. I also only have a 9.5” head, smaller than other guys I know. It’s called genetic variation


@Julian=@Julian = like Canson you don't seem to understand this= if Big Show's shoulders are looking around same height as Shaq's shoulders on ring ,while out of ring Big Show's shoulders are dwarfed by Shaq's shoulders,this means Big Show has a big advantage of shoe on Shaq on ring,no matter the size of their heads or the size of their necks.

You’re the one who doesn’t understand and it reflects in your estimates as they are always egregiously low. Everyone calls you on them too. Last I checked you measure to the top of someone’s head. Us mentioning shoulders is to say that that’s possibly where height was loss. It doesn’t change the outcome that Shaq is only slightly taller than Big show. Not 3-4”. It’s less than 2

JT said on 9/Oct/20
There’s no evidence of internal lifts for Big Show in the staredown with Shaq Click Here You can see where the edge of his foot is pressing against the side of the boot as well as the roundness of his heel at the back. With acromegaly, his feet are going to be very thick (just look at his hands) yet the shoe height (from the soles up) doesn’t look any larger than Shaq’s. He probably has up to a ¼” sole advantage over Shaq.

An elevator shoe with an internal lift Click Here looks obvious, especially when the top of the foot and heel can be seen, leaving aside the difficulty in trying to wrestle in them. Kane’s 2 inch heeled boots are probably about as large as a wrestler can go and still wrestle safely and assuming the wrestler is athletic enough to pull it off.

This is roughly the height difference between Big Show and Shaq in 2016 Click Here Both could stand taller but Big Show’s posture looks a little better.

He’s had numerous surgeries, including on his hip, but I think much of Big Show’s perceived height loss is due to his habit of leaning forward at the waist. Click Here Straightening his upper body here adds about an inch Click Here Akebono has really good posture for someone of his weight and height.

The hunching forward is what I tried to explain to Pierre. He looks like he lost height there in the neck as a result

Ridiculous theory?!Lol the pic go in direction to my theory of massive help.of course Big Show's left toes are more distant to the camera than his right toes=
first = Big Show stand a bit on his profile in the pic
second= his left foot beeing nearly perfectly vertical( because no advantageous shoe),his left toes are standing around same distance to the camera as his left ankle....

By your famous theory if Big Show has always around the same help with his shoes no matter if wrestler shoes or classic shoes you go explain to me why on ring his shoulders are just a bit lower than Shaq's shoulders and out of ring his shoulders are simply dwarfed by Shaq's shoulders....

Click Here Click Here = here on ring Big Show with wrestler shoes = both have their shoulders around same height,Shaq's shoulders just a bit higher than Big Show's shoulders

Now out of ring both guys certainly with similar shoes = Click Here Big Show's shoulders dwarfed by Shaq's shoulders.

Comparisons of heights with one guy in wrestler shoes and the other guy in sneakers will be lots of times advantageous for one of this guys...

@Roelc if you doubt Big Show's wresler shoes give him a big advantage,then eventually watch the recent pic of Kan on 16/Sept on Kane's page = Big show wearing only one wrestler shoe has to tiptoeing a lot on his left bare foot to try to place his ankle at same height as his right ankle .....Have you an idea about the gain of height of a giant guy who is tiptoeing on his giant foot? this is not a question of only 2 inches here....this shoes have very probably internal helps
----------------------
You mean this pic? Click Here
I've seen it and it doesn't really prove anything. It looks more like an optical illussion.
Big Show's left foot is placed further in the back and his right foot is not fully visible in the pic.
It could be that he's leaning in for the pic (as he's standing further behind). Taking off one shoe and placing that foot even a little bit behind the other foot will already cause you to fully stand on your tip-toe.

Besides with all the knee problems and surgeries Big Show had, it could also be that one leg is shorter than the other.

Your theory that Big Show is wrestling in 3 to 4-inch lifts is downright ridiculous. You clearly have never been into any form of athletics yourself if you believe anyone can wrestle in those type of lifts. It's hard to move around in those type of shoes, but running the ropes and juming off the top rope is downright impossible.

The "Big Show wears huge lifts" theory was debunked when he stood in the ring with Sumo-wrestler Akebono. There's footage of the two both in and out of ring-gear and Show doesn't magically appear to be 4-5 inches taller when he puts on his boots.
Here's Big Show in boots with Akebono in slippers: Click Here
Now both barefoot: Click Here
Using your theory Big Show should've appear a whole lot taller in his boots. Yet he doesn't!

And again there are plenty of good pics of Big Show's footwear. The soles on his boots are huge, but the shape of his boots make it very improbable that he's also wearing inside lifts on top of those huge soles.

Plenty of good shots of his boots in these pics
Click Here
Again if Big Show is wearing internal lifts, he must've slim feet. Which is odd for an acromegalic giant.

I completely agree with what @RoelC said below..i personally belive that show has lost a lot more height in past few years.. Which is the main reason for this huge difference now btw Shaq and show.
---------------
KhajaQadaruddin, the pics from Shaq & Show at Wrestlemania were from April 2016 and the ones from the ESPY awards are from July 2016. There was only a 3-month timeframe between those two meetings.

I think the reason why Show looked so short next to Shaq had more to do with the camera angle. Footage shot by a shoulder mounted camera have been prove time after time again to be unreliable for estimating heights.

@Canson,I don't understand why you talk about the necks.The necks cannot be the reason why Shaq's shoulders are just a bit higher than Big Show's shoulders when both are standing in the ring while Shaq's shoulders dwarfs Big Show's shoulders when both are wearing tuxedos out of ring.The reason to me is = Big show's wrestler shoes are very advantageous.

Canson said on 1/Oct/20
@Pierre: a lot of people lose height in their necks or have different size necks. The shoulders do not solely or accurately determine height. So in his case, Show looked less than 2” shorter than Shaq. Even if we took into account their footwear, Show comes out minimum 6’10 with Shaq

----------------
Pierre those shots of Big Show & Shaq at the 2016 ESPY's & Wrestlemania have been thoroughly discussed over here back in 2016.

If you believe he went from this Click Here to that Click Here due to footwear advantage, you're basically saying Big Show had a 2-inch+ shoewear advantage over Shaq's sneakers (which aren't exactly flip flops either).

Big Show's footwear is clearly visible in the Wrestlemania shots. Where are those huge lifts you are talking about? Unless Big Show has very slim feet, there's not much room (if any) for internal lifts.

I doubt if Big Show's footwear gave him any advantage over Shaq's sneakers. And if they did, it's not gonna be more than 0.25 inch.

Big Show walking under a 7’0” door frame Click Here The door frame here is around 7’2” Click Here

At the 2016 ESPYs, Big Show stood at roughly the same Red Carpet spot as several athletes and looked easily 6’10” Click Here which shows why the pics and video with Shaq from that same event (where Big Show looked arguably 6'8" at times assuming Shaq is a flat 7'0") are not reliable (leaving aside that they are not full body shots and the level of the ground, stances, etc. can’t be seen).

@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.

Click Here

Canson I think you have to watch (or watch again) the first comment of Kan on 16/Sept/20 on Kane's page .This pics on ring are biased because Big Show wear wrestler shoes that probably give him a massive help .In the pic of Kan you can see how much Big Show wearing only one wrestler shoe has to tiptoeing with his big left bare foot to place his left ankle at same height as his right ankle.

Then finally the pic I posted Shaq /Big Show wearing suits (and so very probably similar heels this time) is showing a bit more the real difference of height between both guys even if this pic is biased with a low angle and give an advantage to Big Show (watch eventually the comment I posted about this ,on Kane 's page on 22/sept/2020 .

Shaq is in sneakers there but again, he admitted he wears an orthotic in his shoes as well. So even if you put the two into perspective (given Big Show’s footwear), I doubt the advantage would be enough to take Show under 6’10”. That’s not much over an inch that Shaq has on him in the ring in the video. Today, I can see something like what Christian 6’5 3/8 said 6’9.5” but I can’t see him being 6’8.75 let alone 6’7” range

@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

6'11" peak max barefoot.
6'9.5 today, don't completely rule out a fraction less.

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.

@Vegas = Lennox Lewis 6"5' ? Click Here here a young Lennox back to back with Mike Tyson 5"10' Looks not even 6"2.5' here....

Click Here = look at this interview at 10:52 = The interviewer has to looking up to talk to mike so Mike is logigally easily taller than him and Lennox Lewis is just a bit more than a forehead taller than the interviewer....

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”

Click Here

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

Well rob I remember at school way back in 2000 me and my friends all were commenting on big show looking shorter all of a sudden like someone had put him in a washing machine.
Editor Rob
That must be some big machine to fit him in :)

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

@Vegas maybe ...depending the shoes.Next to Mike on ring both had boxer shoes

@Vegas: yea that’s indicative of their respective listings

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.

Ahahahahaha! Ahhh.... Not a nice picture for our dear Big Show eh?
Catcher is absolutely NOT 6'9", Big Show is absolutely Not 6'10 today.
Pierre said on 8/Sep/20
@Vegas = But the video I posted isn't a photoshop ...and both Mike and Lennox were in boxer shoes.hum...Maybe Evander now is a bit shorter than the pic next to Rob...and Lennox shoes a "bit" advantageous?....

@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.

@Riky yea it looks like it to me but I’m also unsure about that picture cause big show looks 6’9.5-6’10 with maybe 6’7-6’7.5 Ike catcher and we all now that show is in the 6’9-6’9.25 range maybe a max 6’9.5 barefoot

@Hahahahahjjj don’t drastically upgrade everyone. In pictures Shaq does look taller
Pierre said on 4/Sep/20

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


big Show advantageous wrestler shoes /Shaq 7"0' sneakers = Click Here

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

@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.

Back in WCW 95 I though he was 7’2. Looking back 7ft-ish peak.
6’10 today.
I was at a show in 03 and I remember thinking he didn’t look as tall as I expected. He was in pretty terrible shape as well.
