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".

No I haven't proves of it, but for me this guy is no more than 6'6.25. And every time he has Kane or Show next to him he always looks equal with Kane who wears big boots or enough close to Big Show like in that staredown.
Both Show and Kane had footwear advantage apparently on him, in this case Big Show Click Here
So I think that when he works for wwe he could wears lifts, maybe I'm wrong.
Roderick said on 15/Sep/19
6'9.5" is more of a minimum than a max for me. He could still be 6'10" with good posture.
Henry said on 15/Sep/19
Rob, it's time to upgrade Paul's peak height. He looks a solid 4.5" taller than Kevin Nash.Paul even has a wider stance.
Start watching at 20 seconds in pause at 27 seconds in when they're both standing straight before the head butts.

What makes you think that Strowman wears lifts?
Riccardo 5'7" said on 12/Sep/19
Worrying heels for Big Show there, but Strowman I think is someone who wears lifts.

Btw I see him 6'9.5 today max. 6'11" max at his peak.
Paul the Puppeteer said on 11/Sep/19
I nearly missed the chunky heel there. Big Show most likely is just 6'9 if Strowman is a smidge below 6'7

He was measured at 7'1 in 1995 and he's over 7'0

with shoes likely he said he was always a little over 7ft,never claimed 7ft1
If he was that tall he would have said 7ft1
rawdshaq said on 10/Sep/19
I can't see Big Show shrinking a full 3" at 47. He doesn't even look old and he's in good shape right now, and I don't remember any major injuries he's had.

He honestly did look 7'0" in WCW and hell, he looks 6'9" range at times today, I completely agree. But there is no way he's lost a full 3". It's rather we are underestimating his current or overestimating his peak. It could be both. Maybe he was 6'10.5" peak and shrunk to 6'9.75" today? I don't know honestly
Roderick said on 8/Sep/19
@cmillzz Height-loss is scary, man. I'm not ruling out 6'9.5" for Big Show, but I doubt he's as low as 6'9"
cmillzz said on 7/Sep/19
Big Show did look around 7’0 in WCW to me, and he may only be 6’9 range now? wow
Roderick said on 4/Sep/19
@Wesley He was listed at 7'1", not measured. Big Show above 7'0" at his peak is impossible.
Wesley Holleman said on 2/Sep/19
He was measured at 7'1 in 1995 and he's over 7'0

@Christian He is slender and I understand 7'1" guesses but 7'4" is def insane. It's usually girls.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Aug/19
@Roderick
Wow, never heard a 6'10" guy getting guessed as 7'4". I guess people see you as being taller than you are if you're super tall, and shorter if you're super short. That explains why many people think Kevin Hart's under 5'0". I've also seen 5'2" women guessed at 5'0" plenty of times.

I personally think 6'11" flat is too low, I can see Big Show hitting the full 7'0" in WCW.
edwards said on 27/Aug/19
He quite didn't looked full 7 feet at peak but ofcource with boot he was iver it.6’10 seems to be reasonable today maybe at worst 6’9.75is likely
Johan 185 cm said on 27/Aug/19
Can't see Show under 6'11.5" peak. He had at least 2" on Nash back in WcW.
rawdshaq said on 26/Aug/19
Wow @Vegas that would make Brodus's 6'9" billing insane. It was lowered to 6'7" but that's still absurd. I've always wondered what the billing process is like.

I think for shorter guys, they just add 1-2 inches, sometimes just round up to the nearest inch. FYI, by "shorter guys", I mean guys who aren't like in that sub-7 foot range, Lol.

For tall guys, it's probably a bit different. Most 6'5"-6'6" guys get a boost to 6'8", 6'7" and up will get 7'0". It's honestly ridiculous, inflation is pointless in 2019. I understand back in the day if you seen a poster for Andre being a 7'4" 450lb giant, it would make you wanna go see Andre, but we live a new area where talent is way different and not a lot of people care about wrestler size anymore. Most of them aren't even small anyway, why not just give them their real height. It's more professional to start. Most people other than us height-obsessed nerds don't even check billed heights anyway. Inflation is 100% pointless.
Canson said on 25/Aug/19
@Roderick and Christian: my guess is prob 6’11-6’11.5 peak
Roderick said on 24/Aug/19
@Dan Trojan It's all good. 6'11.5"-7'0" is my estimation for Big Shows peak. My friend actually is legitimately 6'10" afternoon height and he gets insane guesses like 7'4" sometimes! Most of the time it's 7'1"-7'2", but he's just 6'10". I'm 5'11" and lots of people say 6'1" for me. It's crazy. I wish I could tell them, "yeah, 6'1"" but most of the time I will just say 5'11", or if it's a girl I like, I'll say 6 feet.
Vegas' said on 24/Aug/19
I met Brodus Clay out of gear in 2013. I was behind a velvet rope but it was inside hotel lobby and he was only a foot or two away from me. He didn't look taller than 6'3 at approx 5pm.

Maybe it was bad posture or something but nevertheless he wasn't in same ball park height wise to Big Show (2001-10) in person
Mo Obeidallah said on 24/Aug/19
Whats your guesstimate on Big Show's weight during 2002-2003?
Canson said on 23/Aug/19
@Dan Trojan: well guessing a 6’10” guy at 6’11” from a 5’6” guy’s vantage point is not that bad. That’s essentially a foot and a half difference between the two of you
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Aug/19
@Riccardo
I'm not sure if he was as low as 6'11" peak, but 7'0" was too high for him IMO too.
Creeper said on 23/Aug/19
Actually Big Show was listed at 7'1 in college so that makes his peak height just over 7'0 probably.

I wonder if he still stands straight if he still measures 7'0.

Some people dont literally shrink and measure lower but instead get worse posture over time but technically remain the same height. Also Big Show isnt even that old, hes 47. 47 year olds dont shrink 2 inches
Riccardo 5'7" said on 22/Aug/19
Sotiris@

In the Brodus Clay - Fan- Big Show comparison i see Show 2.5 taller than Brodus Clay.
Brodus Clay looks to me 6'6. 5/6'6" with that 6'9.5 guy.

I have no idea about their real height, but the gap between them seems that one.

Roderick

You got a good point.
I don't mean that guys like Dan Trojan can't guess heights of tall people, but it's hard. At least if you don't know already someone in that range to make a comparison with.
1 foot is about 30 cm right? Well I could guess someone 1 foot taller then me even if he actually is 26-27-28 cm taller. I'm a bad heights judger? Probably, but i think it's easy mistake 2 cm or 3.

Roderick Maybe i came on a little harsh with what i said so i'll come at it a little calmer honestly you would be surprised how good i am at guessing heights usually when i do i'm not off by more than an inch and yes sometimes i get heights mixed up like 6'4" and 6'5" or 6'7" and 6'8" hell i have a co worker which i guessed at 6'11" and he told me he was 6'10" so yeah i may not be 100% accurate but for a 5'6" guy being off by an inch is pretty good maybe i was wrong and big show was 6'10" and maybe hr is 6'9" now i mean i doubt it but i could've been wrong didn't mean to be a dick about it i respect your opinion just like everyone else on here
Dan Trojan said on 20/Aug/19
Roderick say what you will i have 6'7" friends and big show made them look small you think my height has anything to do with not accurately guessing people's heights whatever think what you want i know what i saw and like i said it was 2003 obviously he's lost height since then
SeanR said on 19/Aug/19
419 voters here have Big Show peak at nearly 7’0.25”, interesting...
I’m gonna say peak easily 7’0”, current 6’10.5” as his height is better after the weight loss.
Roderick said on 18/Aug/19
@Dan Trojan If you're 5'6".... then dude there is no way you could accurately guess a guy like Big Shows height. Especially at a house show.

I'm honestly really starting to question Big Show's height. Maybe Sotiris is right and he is 6'9" max. Not the 6'10.25" I orginally guessed.
Lanky said on 18/Aug/19
I’ve just been looking back at some photos of Big Show in the late 90s/very early 2000s and he was a true freak of nature. Not only was he a legit ~7ft tall, but even more impressively he actually had an extremely muscular build, despite being as immensely heavy as he was.

I wonder how that ‘peak’ Big show would compare to someone like Thor Bjornsson. Not just in terms of height, because we all know who would win there - I mean more in terms of how imposing their overall build is.

Big Show was a really, really scary dude.
Canson said on 16/Aug/19
@Dan Trojan: likely because guys that height and weight have worse posture than average. I know a couple of guys one is probably 6’2.5 maybe 6’2.25 and walks around looking 6’1” tops the other 6’4” walks around at 6’2 or 6’3 because both have long torsos with short legs and are heavy

Viper well this guy is mistaken 6'7" i'm sorry is a joke either that or he's a troll i'm not trying to bash anyone i'm just going from personal experience i seen the big show at a house show back in 2003 and i swear he was every bit of 6'11" i've seen people who are 6'7" and the big show made them look small in comparison i agree he's lost height so it's possible he could be under 6'10" now
viper said on 15/Aug/19
Jason who use to post here said Big Show looked 6-7 to him at a wrestling show.
Riccardo 5'7" said on 14/Aug/19
Roderick

In that video he looks more then 6'7", wich i don't think was ever his real height.
I believe he is just 6'9", 6'10.5 is possible for his peak.
And this is about his real life.

WWE is fake, on every single point of view. But he is taller then 6'7",obviously
Canson said on 14/Aug/19
@Christian: that’s exactly how tall the Admiral is about 6’11 or 6’11.25 imho
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Aug/19
@Sotiris
David Robinson's around 6'11"-6'11.5". I know this because my 6'2.25" friend met him and took a pic with him and he looked 9 inches taller. That was back in 2015 I believe.
Roderick said on 13/Aug/19
@Dan Trojan I'm not saying Big Show measures 6'6", all I'm saying is that he can certainly look it at times. Tell me he looks taller than 6'7" next to Jon Jones. You can't, because he doesn't.
edwards said on 13/Aug/19
I noticed quite a long tome ago that everyone who estimates over rob’s listing dosent get called up and there veryone who estimates under mr rob listing gets called up.smh,this is free height forum and anybody can express their personal opinion about height freely without getting in fear or getting bashed.

Tomo said on 13/Aug/19
6'11 peak and 6.11.5/7' in wrestling boots. Today probably 6'10.5 and 6.11 in boots. These people on here saying 6'7 is crazy. Would make strowman, taker and kane ect 6'3/6'4. Don't think so lmfao
Roderick said on 12/Aug/19
What is kinda blowing my mind is that someone at the top of the infobox here claimed that Big Show was 6'7" and 325 pounds. Seems ridiculous, Lol, but is it really so ridiculous? Why don't we take a look?

Click Here

That is the only piece of evidence I could find that 100% supports that claim. Big Show is barefoot with 6'3" Jon Jones and 6'1.5" Mark Henry. No funny footwear business is going on there, no weird camera angles, and no "bad posture" garbage. He is standing straight and looks 6'7" max.

Is it possible that maybe this claimer got access to some sort of medical file from Big Show or knew somebody who knew his height & weight?

I am just making observations. No kayfabe, no fangirling, no nothing.

So.... can anybody explain to me why Big Show looks so short there? He is easily able to pull off looking 6'10" in the ring, which is weird to me. That's from my original estimate.
Dan Trojan said on 12/Aug/19
So don't waste your time telling me to go by pictures because i'm going by personal experience
Dan Trojan said on 12/Aug/19
Roderick your comments just keep getting more ridiculous by the day 6'6" for the big show lmfao you're living in a fantasy world btw i've seen the big show up close he was over 7'0" with boots on i'm 100% sure of that barefoot i'd say 6'11" of course that was in 2003 he's definitely lost height since then i'd say 6'10" today possibly a little under
Sotiris Gravas said on 12/Aug/19
@Roderick Show definitely looks "short" w/ a small guy like 5'8" Kravitz, especially in pics taken up close w/ an upward angle. I was actually shocked the first time I saw that pic that I posted again(?) on 10/Aug/19, where he does look max 6'6". Kravitz could have been on his tippy toes there, or wearing lifts (Vliet could have been wearing lifts, as well). In the 11/Aug/19 pic I posted, he looks taller. If Show was really 6'10", even w/ bad angles, he would NEVER look like a 6'6" man. That said, Show has a big head, so his real height is at least 6'9".

@Canson I could buy 6'9.5" for Show, but not 6'10". I really do think his excess weight has compressed his spine. That said, he did lose weight, he said he was down to 396 lbs in that interview w/ Chris Van Vliet (not sure if that still holds true).

Not 100% sure if Randy Johnson was legit 6'10", but he looked it to me.

That said, here he was w/ 6'5" Mark McWire (1998)... Click Here

Seen here w/ supposed 6'8" Gene Conley... Click Here

He might be shorter now, turning 56 later this year.
Canson said on 12/Aug/19
@Roderick: I’d go ahead and respond. It’s a free forum. Yes that is a possibility but at the same time I don’t see the people who would say Show is 6’10.5 or 6’11” today despite Rob’s 6’10” listing, getting called out just like you don’t see anyone that lists Taker 6’8” peak or 6’7” today or Hogan 6’4 or 6’5 today and 6’7 peak being called out.
Roderick said on 11/Aug/19
@Sotiris Dude, I would like to comment how short I think Big Show looks there, but I already know how many fangirls would attack me and call me a troll, Lol.

Simply put: He doesn't look anywhere close to any height anybody has ever given for him on this forum.

Orginally, my IN-RING current estimate was 6'10.25", but out of the ring, he looks super short.

IMO in those two pics with the 5'8"'ers, he looks 6'5"-6'6". I don't care if people think I am trolling or not. That's what I see right there. A 6'6" Big Show. Not more. Go ahead and tell me he looks taller than that next to Chris.

@Sotiris: I’ve always wondered about Randy Johnson. Is he really 6’10”? He’s listed at that but is he?
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Sotiris: he’s already downgraded Show from 7’0” to 6’10”. I personally feel Show wasn’t a full 7’0” peak but 6’11” range. Today, I feel that his situation is much like the Undertaker. Could be as low as 6’9.5 or as high as 6’10”
Canson said on 10/Aug/19
@Sotiris: and if you see Harden (2009 draft) with Westbrook (2008) you can tell it’s around a 3cm difference which proves what I’ve been saying all along. 2009 was held early morning and 2008 in the afternoon. It says in the article below which has been posted again for the umpteenth time, that the UNC players measured 1/2” some even 3/4” less than they did in 2008. My guess is 3/4 maybe possible but it could just be 5/8” since they don’t use 1/8” increments or maybe Danny Green grew a fraction. A 6’2.25 Westbrook makes Harden about 6’3.5. And Russ is not any taller than that based on how he stands with Caron Butler and Carmelo Anthony both of whom I’ve met. Melo has a clear 4” on him. Butler is 6’5” and Melo 6’6 or maybe the full 6’6.25 he measured at best. Basketball and football combines begin in the 6am hour now a days and have in football since at least 2006 if not before that and Basketball for sure since 2009. It even makes mention to the height variance in the article

Some players measured as much as 1/2” taller at the combine than they did at the Senior Bowl that year

I need to find the link of the Senior Bowl but it’s posted here on the site somewhere

Click Here
Canson said on 9/Aug/19
@JT: I did look at it and even watched parts of the NBA combine last year and this year on TV. It’s actually because the players are measured by position. So Tuesday morning would’ve been one position, Wednesday morning another, them they wrapped up the last position on Thursday morning. Even if they had begun in the afternoon the day before (which they didn’t because the games were in the afternoon), like Christian said, the players all know that laying down prior to a measurement will make them taller and the goal is to get in the best possible draft position so being taller is better. I know if money were on the line for me and I were a forward like I was when I played (although I played guard as well) I would’ve tried to be 6’5 when they measured me versus the 6’4 and a hair. It says in the article below that I posted of 2008 and 2009 that it’s been proven. And when they went to a morning measurement for that specific reason, that the spine compressed over the course of the day, they would not go back to an afternoon measurment when they know that it’s not going to benefit the players and their is no reason to do so. And the NFL heights are also early in the morning. That’s why they look the same as the NBA. And “we” aren’t fairly certain of them. Maybe you are, but most of the other posters are aware that they are in the early morning too.
If you see when Kyler Murray was measured and others they are always early morning as the measurements were made public around 9 or 10 am that morning. They didn’t start in the afternoon the day before they were all held in the morning each day. look at the links below. It clearly says that 2008 vs 2009 the afternoon measurements for Danny Green Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington were all 1/2” and one 3/4” lower than their 2009 measurements. It also says going back even further in the NFL to 2006 that Rise and Shine was at 6am and the players went to the RCA dome for drug tests then took physicals which included measurements. It says Vincent Jackson was measured 6’4.75 but at the senior bowl he was 6’4 3/8. Nick Mangold was 6’3 5/8 but at the senior 6’3 1/4 and there were many others. The Senior Bowl used to measure in the afternoon but now it’s also in the early morning. That’s exactly how I would measure after an hour out of bed. I would be between 1/3-3/8” shorter than I am when I wake up. I would go down around 3/4” to 2cm from a whisker over 6’5” to about 6’4 1/4 in the afternoon

Even if they had begun in the afternoon the day before, like Christian said, the players all know that laying down prior to a measurement will make them taller and the goal is to get in the best possible draft position so being taller is better. It says in the article below that I posted of 2008 and 2009 that it’s been proven. And when they went to a morning measurement for that specific reason, that the spine compressed over the course of the day, they would not go back to an afternoon measurment when they know that it’s not going to benefit the players and their is no reason to do so. And the NFL heights are also early in the morning. That’s why they look the same as the NBA. And “we” aren’t fairly certain of them. Maybe you are, but most of the other posters are aware that they are in the early morning too.
If you see when Kyler Murray was measured and others they are always early morning as the measurements were made public around 9 or 10 am that morning. They didn’t start in the afternoon the day before they were all held in the morning each day. look at the links below. It clearly says that 2008 vs 2009 the afternoon measurements for Danny Green Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington were all 1/2” and one 3/4” lower than their 2009 measurements. It also says going back even further in the NFL to 2006 that Rise and Shine was at 6am and the players went to the RCA dome for drug tests then took physicals which included measurements. It says Vincent Jackson was measured 6’4.75 but at the senior bowl he was 6’4 3/8. Nick Mangold was 6’3 5/8 but at the senior 6’3 1/4 and there were many others. The Senior Bowl used to measure in the afternoon but now it’s also in the early morning
JT said on 9/Aug/19
Canson, if you look at the 2018 draft, the measurements finished up on a Thursday morning, which means the measurements probably started the previous afternoon. Maybe it takes longer than we realized to conduct all of the measurements, so ones that start in the morning may not finish up until later in the day depending on the number of players at the combine. Measurements for the 2014 draft were reportedly conducted in the afternoon. For the 2019 draft, one article said Bol Bol measured 70.75” w/o shoes “earlier” that day and Tacko Fall measured 7’5.25” w/o shoes that “afternoon.”
If you ever see an NBA player next to others whose heights we are fairly certain of, including NFL players, the NBA players rarely look shorter than what they were measured at during the combine. Click Here

As an honest poster, and not someone who goes by kayfabe or whatever you wanna call it, I do see Big Show being the full 7'0" peak and still around 6'10.25" or just 6'10" flat today.

In a staredown, Big Show standing straight and tall with an unhinged neck never fails to look at least 6'10". Therefore, I believe when propped up against the wall for a measurement, he is still min 6'10". I don't even rule out 6'10.25"-6'10.5" but I don't think he is 6'11". That we can probably rule out.

@Sotiris How tall do you think the Rock and Batista were at their peaks?
Canson said on 7/Aug/19
@Christian: not to mention it says it right there in the article that I posted that science has proven that people are taller in the AM than the PM. I know if that’s me and I’m doing drills and measurements for millions of dollars at stake, I would do what I can to measure taller. Not to mention, people aren’t going to work out prior to the combine. They do drills and also scrimmage there again for draft status. I respect JT and he’s right that there are no rules but that last part about the possibility of workouts at 5am or before combine is weak. First of all they wake up at the time that is set for them to be there and that would exhaust them if they did that which would negatively impact their potential status. Not to mention the part about availability to measure throughout the day. They measure in groups in football but they’re every day of the week early morning. Theyre around the same time for all players during the combine. They’ve begun doing that in basketball now too whereas a couple years ago it was everyone regardless of position measured the same morning.
Canson said on 7/Aug/19
@Christian: the comment is one thing but his logic in saying that Conan is taller than “6’4 listed guys” is even dumber. I’ve already proven that Hoff and Neeson are both clearly taller and he knows that they are and Selleck is under 6’4 at his peak (Selleck admitted to only being 6’3.5) is taller in the video and Lithgow looked taller. Conan thought Selleck was 6’4-6’5 so he knew he was taller because Conan has never claimed but 6’4/6’4.5 (shoe height). That is the only comment that the poster has ever made so he’s likely a troll. But I bet if I had said Conan was 6’4 or 6’5 then I wouldve never received the comment

@JT
There are no rules stating that players aren't allowed to engage in physical activity prior to measuring, but most players are smart enough to not do it since they wanna measure as tall as possible. Some players even stretch and lay down to preserve height.
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
Didn’t mean to say arm strength. They do strength drills
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@JT: something else to remember is that they are all on a set timeline as far as waking up and the fact that they test things like wingspan and other measurables involving strength. They wouldn’t work out before they hit the combine.
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@JT: I posted the link that said in 2009 that NBA pre drafts were held early morning. There is no link that says anything about them working out. Since 2009 it’s likely that they’ve all been held early morning. I can’t verify if it happened before but since 09 it’s almost a guarantee because the NFL is also held early morning as we have seen. It specifically says early morning and we saw the Blake Griffin video where he went straight from the room out of bed to the gym. No shower nothing.

Woah, @Sotiris, Big Show looks 6'6" there. Very odd photo

Canson, post the link that says every NBA pre-draft measurement is conducted early morning or even morning (and that the players are not allowed to engage in any physical activity prior thereto that could reduce their height).
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Aug/19
@Canson
I saw his comment, and yeah, it's ridiculous. What he accused you of doing is false, because you don't always "downgrade" heights. Some of your estimates agree with Rob's, and a few of them are even higher than his.
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Roderick: his estimates aren’t all that bad. Theyre only “bad” to others because they are lower than what Rob lists them. Some of his estimates are actually spot on.
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Sotiris: don’t stop posting just because some people don’t agree with you.
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Christian: what’s funny is you see some posters here who always add like one who insists Carmelo is 200 cm and Lebron 203 and inflated every soccer player. Yet you don’t see or hear “Rob you should ban him” or that’s “insulting to Rob”. Sometimes it’s directed right toward Rob telling him that he’s wrong or that they disagree but either way when it’s not it’s still them disagreeing. I don’t see why or how what Sotiris said is any more “insulting” or however you wanna put it. It’s an opinion but because it’s an assumption that the person is shorter than Rob lists them. And to add, Rob has stated before to assume that each listing is around 5 hours out of bed. When we know athletes measure in the early morning then they’re not. Rob has even said this before. So by site standards Sotiris is not as wrong as people insist he is
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Sotiris: Klay i would say that’s the minimum. He could be like 6’5 3/8 imho as he looks maybe a CM taller than Draymond at times. I think Draymond is 6’5” flat. Klay at 6’5 3/8 means he may have been the solid 6’5.75 when he measured early morning whereas Draymond may have been rounded up or lose more height. That looks closer to 4.5” on Renaldo but Klay doesn’t look as tall as Shaun Livingston who is close to an inch maybe around 2cm or so taller. I can buy Livingston’s 6’6.25 or worst case 6’6” flat. I agree for Love and Durant both stronger 6’7 and 6’9” guys
Sotiris Gravas said on 5/Aug/19
@Canson Sorry, Mychal Thompson would have been 59 in 2014.


@Christian I fancy myself the persecuted Galileo of CelebHeights (as opposed to Copernicus) lol. (Most ppl don't like to be told they're wrong.) Given that I post here very often, it's not surprising that ppl who don't think highly of me or my estimates will give voice to their towering rage, spurred on by their own hubris. If I'm not mistaken, you took a sabbatical from this site... Some well-earned rest, I trust. Good to have you back.

Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Christian: the funny part is that anytime and I mean anytime a celeb is guessed or implied to be lower than Rob lists them you are downgrading. Go look at this idiot who called me a downgrader on Conan’s page and said “Conan edges legit 6’4” guys out when we know he is shorter than all the ones who have been on his show. Sometimes people say dumb sh*t and don’t even think twice about it. That’s called fanboys. But I stick to what I said because one of the ones who called Sotiris out in particular only makes those snide comments toward people when the estimates are below Rob’s. He’s also upgraded a few celebs on his own to make math work. You can go and look at any page and tell that it’s always a comment about someone being rude or taking a shot at Rob when the estimate is lower but nothing when it’s higher than his listing.

Roderick said on 4/Aug/19
Sotiris estimates aren't even that bad..... they are actually pretty accurate from what I've seen.

Honestly yeah at first it sounds silly to say Big Show is 6'9" or Great Khali is 6'10", but once you look into it you can see where he's coming from with actual evidence.

His estimates are better than most users IMO

6'6.75" peak for Undertaker is more realistic than 6'8" peak for Undertaker

6'5.5" today for Kane is closer to reality than 6'7" today for Kane

Just a few example of how Sotiriss estimates aren't even bad...

Do I agree with most of them? No. Do I respect ALL of them? Yes.

He actually changed my mind on Khali, I used to think Khali was 7'1" peak, but now I think he was 7'0" max peak. I have met Khali and thought he looked at least 7'0" but he was wearing massive shoes. Today Khali might only be 6'11".
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
Here is Durant with LaMarcus Aldridge who was afternoon measured 6’10” (2007) and still is 6’10” range along with Andre Drummond (morning measured) 6’9.75 and admitted he’s 6’9/6’10” himself. Durant doesn’t look anything more than (if even) as tall as Rob lists him here on this site. People exaggerate his height because that’s what he would be listed if he followed the norm of a shoe measurement.

Never seen anyone on CH that constantly gets so much criticism as Sotiris gets. Even Viper once low key called Sotiris out, and Viper is also in the same boat as Sotiris in that he often gets bashed for being a "downgrader". To be fair though, Viper's comment toward Sotiris wasn't nearly as bad as the others.
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Roderick: just watch. Rob obviously encourages different opinions but get used to seeing those types of comments from other posters if you estimate “below” Rob’s listings. If you consistently inflated you won’t have an issue though. People don’t like Sotiris is what it is. Christian and I have seen those comments before too but only when it’s below what Rob estimates never when we agree with the listing or estimate slightly above as we do on occasion. You may get comments but they aren’t snide and critical in nature nor do they reflect the same tone
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Christian: this has also happened to me before. The “name dropping” of Rob when I give my own opinion especially if it’s less than Rob lists them. I love how people think giving someone the guilt trip using Rob as leverage is going to make them cave. I’m not going to mention who because that poster also commented on this page tried to tell me I took a shot at Rob in essence because I estimated them lower than he did. I don’t get it. I bet the same posters here wouldn’t be saying that if Sotiris had guessed him higher than Rob lists him here. I don’t agree with all of Sotiris’s listings of course and I’ve been vocal about it but I respect him. He at least has logic behind why he doesn’t
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@JT: I don’t know if Webber has met Durant standing up. Maybe sitting when he interviewed him. If you read the article closely it said Webber feels he “would” be 3” taller than him. He didn’t say he was definitively. And Webber is 6’9.5 in shoes not barefoot. Mo Cheeks even said when he played for the 76ers that he was 6’8/6’9 which means that he’s probably a weak 6’9”. I don’t care what the measurement said because it may have been rounded up or not been later in the day. Notice how short he was with Rasheed Wallace who is 6’9.75 or Kevin Garnett. And lastly, I just proved that the NBA pre drafts were all early morning so what you are telling Sotiris is incorrect. He is right and you are wrong here. You all keep saying the pre draft measurements this and that. They don’t measure at different times of the day. It said all players in the article I posted. If you watched the Blake Griffin video it’s clear that they didn’t work out prior to the combine so I don’t even know why that would be a factor. Those guys have to do drills and play pickup and they wake up knowing all of that so them working out at 5am should not even be a consideration here because they didn’t.

@JT First off, there's no guarantee Muresan was 7'7" -- he might have been max 7'6.5". Here's Chris Webber saying Muresan was only 7'6"... Click Here

As for Webber saying Durant was 7 feet tall, the context was that he was obviously joking, not implying that Durant is 6'10", when he obviously isn't, as seen next to a weak 6'10" like Anthony Davis.

Webber is max 6'8.5". Magic says he's 6'9", but we all know he's not.

You showed me upward pics -- taken up close. I'm the guy who explained to you how that can cause distortion. There's no crazy upward angle here for Ming and Bradley... Click Here The Muresan/Bradley pic is an upward angle taken from their feet, lol, like this... Click Here

The Love/Durant/Davis pic I posted is head-on, no upward angle... Click Here How is this "misleading"? They're obviously standing on a level surface, not on a sandy beach. Seeing footwear here is irrelevant; they're all wearing sneakers -- no surprise cowboy boots, I assure you, lol. A weak 6'10" Davis means Durant obviously isn't 6'10" -- it's as simple as that.

Here's 6'7.25" Love w/ 6'10.25" Chris Bosh... Click Here , Click Here Love was measured 6'7.75" which is clearly a morning measurement.

Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are 100% not their morning measurement of 6'5.75". You can take that to the bank. There are plenty of folks who insist Durant grew to 6'11", which is absurd. Here's Durant w/ 7'0" Joel Embiid... Click Here , Click Here

Kevin Durant is obviously 6'9.25". If you want to believe he's taller, go right ahead. As for me winning the debate, w/ all due respect, it was over before it started.
Canson said on 3/Aug/19
@Sotiris: I disagree. 6’9” is too low for him. He just like Taker and Hogan, has really bad posture. He may not be able to stand straight for long stretches which is common for the extremely tall guys like him. Not saying he didn’t lose height from his prime but I think he’s still at least a weak 6’10” 6’9.5 minimum and has a good chance at 6’10” even today If he is able to stand tall today.

@Danimal comment on 01/August =It's seems to me not logical to lose height systematically by hip surgery/replacement .

JT said on 3/Aug/19
Sotiris, with all due respect, you’re never going to win a height debate when you keep posting less than full body shots to make your point. Here, I can “prove” Calvin Lane is no taller than Shaq since they look similar next to Magic when we know Lane is significantly taller Click Here Of course we don’t know anyone’s footwear, including Lane’s, whether Lane is on his tip toes with Shaq, whether the floor is level, etc.

I can argue Anthony Davis is only around 6’6”-6'7" with Alvin Gentry Click Here when it’s evident from full body pics he’s really 6’10” plus Click Here With the number of pics out there, there’s no reason not to post full body shots so we can see the footwear, the stances, whether the ground is level, whether the camera is tilted, etc. unless the poster has an agenda...

Even full body shots can be misleading at first glance. Click Here Gheorghe Muresan looks shorter next to Shawn Bradley than Yao Ming does next to Bradley in your pic. By your logic, this "proves" Yao is taller than 7’7” Muresan, right? No, b/c this Muresan-Bradley photo has a camera tilt in favor of Bradley, the camera is on his side, and he is fully stretching out, unlike Muresean (and Yao). And as usual, your photo of Yao and Bradley is less than full-body.

Also, there’s no set time of the day for NBA combine measurements. Some guys may be measured in the morning, some later in the day. I’ll go with the combine measurement for now unless we know for sure it’s a first of the morning measurement. Then again, what if the guy who was measured early morning had been at the gym at 5:00 a.m. and had a heavy workout?

Chris Webber measured 6’9” w/o shoes (and claims to be 6’9.5”) but claims Durant is 3 inches taller than him. Click Here That’s clearly wrong but Webber’s not going to get the impression Durant is that much taller than him if Durant was only a shade over 6’9” w/o shoes like you and a few others claim.
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Sotiris: I admire you for standing up for yourself! A lot of this has nothing to do with the “perceived” “overblown” comment to Rob. We saw what Rob said about it. And It has to do with your estimating lower than his listings. Just look very closely at some of the stuff being said and see if the same is said to those who inflate. I guarantee that if it were the other way around, you would never hear that. Funny how guys like Willes189 when he was here did just that and inflated so did Ice and others here (who are not as rude at least) but none of them heard a thing about their disagreeing with Rob. Personally if your tone seems aggressive I could completely understand because you’re not going to let anyone push you around like that
Roderick said on 2/Aug/19
@Philip Lmao what? Are you serious? We are supposed to just look at the listing and comment "Agree!" or "You're absolutely correct!" and just move on? You are also a hypocrite, you don't even agree with most of his listings. These comments exist so we can express our opinions and debate the heights lmao. Not to just comment "I agree."

I can't believe someone actually typed out and suggested that people deserve to be banned for disagreeing with an estimate LOL
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Danimal: probably posture related just like Taker or Hogan. Very tall guys like that don’t always have the best posture. While 6’9” range is possible I doubt he’s 6’9 flat. 6’9.5-6’10 or a full 6’10 is possible (not sure how likely) if he stands straight. I doubt he’s less than 207cm range tho
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Philip McMullin: no disrespect but your comment makes no sense. If we all were yes men and agreed with Rob on his estimates, we would not even post. There would be no comments here and Rob would likely have no site whatsoever. That’s the problem, too many people here try to kiss Rob’s a$$ by agreeing or by getting on someone who doesn’t. Yet I doubt you or any of them would be saying anything if Sotiris thought Show or Hulk Hogan or any of the others were taller than Rob lists him. I’m sure you have not always estimated someone where Rob has them. I’m sure you have thought someone was taller before too. That’s really not any different from estimating them less than Rob has them (in regards to your argument) because it’s still not in agreement with rob and his estimate so i don’t see what the issue is. I guess if you feel that way, there is no point in even posting on your part because you have no value to add. You’re only even bashing Sotiris because he estimates lower than Rob does

Not much of a difference between Draymond and Kobe with Magic if Magic and Draymond both stand straight. May be hardly any difference. Not to mention Draymond has the footwear advantage on Magic of about 1/4” or 3/8”. Draymond is not 6’5 3/4” barefoot at a normal low. He’s probably not much, if at all, over 6’5”, like others around him have said
Canson said on 1/Aug/19
The difference between Doug Collins calling Pippen 6’9” is that he was inflating him just like Phil Jackson did. Pippen probably was 6’8” range in shoes so they were upping him. But no real person is going to say that another athlete that they coach is shorter than they are and actually mean it. That does not happen no matter what people here want to say. It’s pretty silly to be honest
Canson said on 1/Aug/19
@Creeper: I think 1.5” between Shaq and Show when they were in the ring. He was definitely still 6’10” until a few years ago and may still be today, who knows. If he really goes under that mark it’s just by a little. I could see anything from 6’9.5-6’10 same as I see Undertaker he could be in the 197cm range today but not less than that and not more than 6’6” flat whereas Show could be in 6’9.5-6’10 range but he isn’t less than 6’9.5 and not over 6’10” today I doubt

@Vegas: ok I understand what you are trying to say, I guess, but what you accused Sotiris of, you did, unfortunately, do on the Rock’s page. And I say this with all do respect because I do respect you as a poster but That first pic is the one you posted where Rock is standing closer to the camera than Ndamukong Suh. Everyone else on the page pointed that out but you disagreed with everyone when it is obvious. The second is one that was posted later that you had a problem with where you complained about ground level etc. you can obviously and plainly tell that the ground levels are the same here and they are at the exact same event as the pictures you posted so they would have the same footwear. They have the same clothes on and the background is the same. But the point I’m making is everyone posts photos like that from time to time. We are all guilty of it across this site. Anyone who says that they’ve never posted one like that is lying. You saying you don’t is not accurate and you saying you didnt at least on that occasion pick and choose is too because I can pull that entire thread and prove that you did. Not to mention you accused me of something you were doing on that same thread. I’m not saying you did anything with pics here but All I am saying is that you saying Sotiris does it is no better because you’ve done it before. And trust me, I’m not saying Sotiris has never done that because like I said everyone has and he probably knows that he has too. It’s just that he isn’t the only one who has and I never see people here attacking the other guys here in the past who have been downright rude. Sotiris isn’t like that to Rob at all

@Vegas: ok I understand what you are trying to say I guess but what you accused Sotiris of, you did, unfortunately, do on the Rock’s page. And I say this with all do respect because I do respect you as a poster but That first pic is the one you posted where Rock is standing closer to the camera than Ndamukong Suh. Everyone else on the page pointed that out but you disagreed with everyone. The second is one that was posted later that you had a problem with where you complained about ground level etc. you can obviously and plainly tell that the ground levels are the same here and they are at the exact same event as the pictures you posted so they would have the same footwear. But the point I’m making is everyone posts photos like that from time to time. We are all guilty of it across this site. Anyone who says that they’ve never posted one like that is lying. You saying you don’t is not accurate and you saying you didnt at least on that occasion pick and choose is too because I can pull that entire thread and prove that you did. All I am saying is that you saying Sotiris does it is no better because you’ve done it before. And trust me, I’m not saying Sotiris has never done that because like I said everyone has and he probably knows that he has too. It’s just that he isn’t the only one who has.

Editor Rob should start banning people who consistently disagree with his estimates on HIS site.

Vegas' I absolutely agree bro with that first paragraph!
Sotiris Gravas said on 1/Aug/19
@Vegas Just to recap, I called you a joke, that's hardly me being verbally abusive, as you put it, and more you being overly thin-skinned. If you want me to treat you like a child that needs to be coddled rather than an adult, I can oblige you. Also, you say I do it frequently, which I feel is you trying to put forward a false narrative which plays to your bias. Funny how Editor Rob has never chastised me for what you're alleging. I've had ppl coming at me from Day One, calling me a troll, simply b/c I refuse to inflate the height of their heroes.


You said I pick and choose pics that suit my agenda, when talking about Khali... Really? Here are pics of Khali w/ a fan that I ALREADY posted... Click Here , Click Here , Click Here , Click Here Notice that I posted ALL of the pics I could find, not pics that I cherry-pick. Fan and 5'9.5" GSP... Click Here

As for Dwyane Wade, here he is w/ max 6'6.75" LeBron James... Click Here

Wade and Hogan (2007)... Click Here Hogan is 100% not 6'3".
Same fan w/ Hogan... Click Here

Yao Ming is not 7'5". Here he is w/ Shawn Bradley, also listed 7'6"... Click Here


As for Lindsay Kay Hayward, I already proved she's 100% nowhere near 6'8" barefoot, and your rebuttal is that she was listed at 6'9" in college... And? So?

Here's Hayward (footwear unknown) w/ Boomer Esiason (2011)... Click Here
Boomer w/ 6'8" (not 6'9") Alonzo Mourning... Click Here
W/ maybe 6'5" flat Peyton Manning (2005)... Click Here
W/ 6'4.25" Eli Manning (2011)... Click Here


Reminder: same fan as w/ Khali, seen here w/ Hayward in maybe 3" heels (2010): Click Here

Same fan w/ Big Cass... Click Here , Click Here
W/ 6'7" Tyler Mane (2013)... Click Here

Her maybe 3-inch heels that day... Click Here

So, as you can see, 6'5" for Hayward is clearly not "nuts." Again, this is something I've already proven. Something you refuse to accept.



So, once again, to recap... everything you said has been 100% refuted. How does that make you feel?
Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on 1/Aug/19
You can see it in this brand new video at 13 seconds in that he's clearly had hip surgery and they've his once very long femur bone (as they did Hulk Hogans) which has 100% attributed to his height loss. Look how small and tiny his hips and thighs are now. I'm not talking about the weight loss. I'm talking about how much shorter his legs are and how much narrower his hips are. He's nowhere near 6'10" or 6'11" today. At best, he's 6'9". Click Here

@Vegas: I don’t agree with him on Hayward’s height along with some of the others that are too low which I’ve made clear to him before as well, but some the others such as Wade, I don’t see why it’s not a possibility. If we accept his pre draft then you should be able to accept Barkley’s 6’4 5/8 and it would mean Merriman is 6’4 when he’s definitely not that tall. Wade has said himself “I’m 6’4 on a very good day” as has his coach. That means he’s probably (I say definitely) not 6’3.75 and he never looks it on the court with guys that are 6’4/6’5 such as 6’4 5/8 Charles barkley or a 6’4.5 morning measured Justice Winslow (probably only 6’4 flat) or even with Ray Allen who is at most 6’4”. You refer to a video with Strahan and pic with Kobe. There are other instances when Wade doesn’t look that height but you don’t want to accept those pics. And You did the same on the Rock’s page when the Rock was favored with Suh you said he’s only an inch shorter. Then when we posted a better pic at the same event, you had an issue with that picture. At least if you’re gonna argue, then be consistent. You also said about Sotiris picking and choosing when you did it on Rock’s page. And I say that because you once told me “you can’t pick and choose what you believe” yet you do that. And I don’t see where Sotiris verbally abused anyone here. To be honest, if he did it to anyone here who is attacking him, it would be justified because He’s the one being abused if anything. Not saying he hasn’t had situations where he hasn’t handled it 100% perfectly as have many of us here, but Rob already said below that he doesn’t take offense when people disagree with him. I feel that everyone here is going in on Sotiris just because his estimates are lower than Rob’s. If it were opposite (and this isn’t directed at you because I’ve at least seen you challenge inflated heights people make), I doubt he’d be receiving this level of backlash. It seems as if the fact that he estimates lower than Rob is forcing people to react that way more so than what he’s actually saying in his posts. There are several others here who verbally abuse people when they upgrade several inches but they aren’t being lectured by everyone
Sotiris Gravas said on 31/Jul/19
@JT

The reason I gave Klay Thompson and Draymond Green both 6'5.25" is b/c the 6'5.75" was a morning measurement. Same for Steph Curry at 6'1.5" rather than 6'2". Aaron Rodgers' 6'2" listing is an error; he's around 6'1".

As for Yao Ming, he, himself, has stated that he was 7'3.75", before he grew taller. I'd be willing to believe 7'4.25" for Ming. If I'm wrong, then 7'4.5". Joakim Noah is 6'10", 6'10.5" is a morning height... Here's another pic of them together... Click Here

@JT: it does matter what they say because the NBA pre draft measurements are held early morning. That explains why they say he looks the way he does. Last I checked, the rules of the site which Rob uses to list people say that his norm is 5 hours after waking. The combine is not held 5 hours after waking up.

Big Show needs a peak height upgrade to 7'1.5".
He has lost a tremendous amount of heigh.
He used to tower at least 4.5" above Kevin Nash and now he's barely 1" taller. Keep in mind that Kevin Nash has been losing height all this time and yet Big Show lost FAR MORE HEIGHT.

Big Show has been shorter than Shaq, but "The Giant" in WCW barefoot was taller than Shaq in shoes.

If you look up Big Show and Shaq, you can see that there is a 1-2 inch difference between the two. Big Show gets 6'11 from me, or 7'0 if he stretches out in his prime.
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
@Rob: I wouldnt expect you to take any offense because there are probably close to half the posters here if not more that say that the listings are over or under what they actually are. If you took offense, I doubt that there would be a site here.
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
I agree with Sotiris. No 6’3.75 guy would be referred to by his coach or GM Otis Smith of Orlando as “6’4 on a good day” if he’s a barefoot 6’3.75”. Not to mention Wade referred to himself that way. Wade is also at absolute “minimum” an inch shorter than 6’4” Justice Winslow who only measured 6’4.5 in the morning. Lebron is an easy 4” taller than Wade
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
@Riccardo: I think Durant is over a flat 6’9” but still closer 6’9 than 10. He looks shorter than Deandre Jordan. According to Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry, Rex Chapman Draymond is 6’5”. Also Melo referred to “6’5 guys playing center” when talking about a positionless league when he was traded to OKC.

@Duhon: the thing is that everyone here is going to have an opinion. But if you are going to say that about Sotiris or about people who estimate a celeb lower than Rob, then you would need to be consistent and say the same to the handful of other guys who estimate higher than Rob. I know that you’ve seen people who estimate almost every celeb higher than Rob lists them. I don’t want to mention names but it’s clear who some of them are. There are some who’ve been on this site for years that always do it and it’s accepted. That’s only fair if it works one way it has to work the other. I’ve only been around here for 4 years and I’ve seen people even belittle Rob for “downgrading” a celeb or not listing them as high as they would like to see them listed too but it’s rare that anything is ever said to them. And when I say belittle, I mean one case where Rob even responded back to them and likely banned the person and if he didn’t was very lenient because the person went off on Rob to where he even told them you have personal issues you need to address or something along those lines. Now I dont agree with Sotiris on his estimates. Taker and Hulk are two that we definitely don’t agree on and even Boomer Esiason. Also there is Rick Barry and Dr J. But I still don’t think that was Sotiris’s intent to criticize Rob. That was his opinion.

Sotiris, you need to read the rules of this site. Verbally abusing members isn't allowed and you do it frequently. As I said a year ago this isn't a good site for you if you don't want to debate, which you don't seem to want to do.

I never said fan photos are useless but you pick and choose ones to suit your agenda instead of posting them all and letting people decide for themselves. Those two guys have dozens of photos with wrestlers and Hollywood celebs including multiple shots with Khali..

Once you start downgrading people whose measurements we know took place and have been published by official sources you end up having to downgrade basically everyone to make your initial downgrade work. Wade in sneaks is weak excuse. If he is max 6'3 barefooot he would be max 6'4-6'4.2 in sneaks unless something like shox. Dress shoes are usually around an inch over barefoot

Ming was measured 7'5 barefoot and looks every bit of that

6'5 for Hayward is nuts. That would mean she was over-listed by 4 inches in college as a freshman Click Here
JT said on 30/Jul/19
Click Here Click Here Draymond Green measured 6’5.75” w/o shoes as did Klay Thompson. Steph Curry measured 6’2” w/o shoes and is a little taller than Aaron Rodgers (listed by NFL as 6’2”), maybe an inch taller than Pres Obama and at least 2 inches taller than Mike Trout, listed as 6’2” by MLB and is more like 6’0”. It doesn’t matter what Steve Kerr or Alvin Gentry “think” Green’s height is. Doug Collins coached Scottie Pippen and claimed he was legit 6’9” w/o shoes when he actually measured 1.5” shorter.

Your estimates are getting better Sotiris but Yao is definitely taller than 7’4’. Click Here Click Here Click Here Dikembe Mutombo measured 7’1.25” w/o shoes and Joakim Noah 6’10.5” w/o shoes. Click Here That's roughly what Andre and Wepner were supposed to look like together based on their 7'5" and 6'5" billings for the 1976 match.

@Duhon

You said I seem to criticize Editor Rob, the man, and that I'm dismissive of him...


If I disagree w/ Rob's listings, it has nothing to do w/ me disrespecting anyone, Rob or celebrities, etc. Many of Rob's listings for very tall ppl not 100% accurate. If they were, I doubt so many ppl would even bother to post here.

I am dismissive of you and your BS assumptions. Very dismissive, actually.

My best advice to ppl like you: stop trying to spread malicious gossip about others based on your own bias. It's very unbecoming.
Editor Rob

For one visitor, a listing may match their own opinion and be 'accurate', whilst for another visitor, the listing might be an inch different than their own estimate and be classed as 'inaccurate'. Ultimately, all listings are estimates.

When people call listings inaccurate, I don't take any offence. It's merely a disagreement on our estimates.

Please let me stress just how much I think Vegas is an embarrassing joke.

Hey, Vegas, Wade is in sneaks which give him a bigger height boost than Strahan's dress shoes. Is that something that you're capable of understanding?

Click Here Jagdeep Singh’s not 7’6” even in his turbin. The car is 58” tall. Subtract a bit from that given the weight of the driver but he’s still comfortably over 7 feet. If he ever measured 7’6”, it would have been if the doctor factored in some severe kyphosis or other spinal curvature
Sotiris Gravas said on 25/Jul/19
@Roderick

I've already shown that Jagdeep is around Shaq's height, as seen next to 6'3" Dwyane Wade, and yet you STILL tell me I'm wrong b/c of what YouTube says. Do you honestly think I give a (bleep) what YouTube says or doesn't say? Measured by whom? Witnessed by whom?


Guinness World Records says that Lindsay Kay Hayward is 6'8.25" barefoot, and yet I've already posted evidence which shows she's probably only 6'5" and was measured in shoes, or that Guinness just took her word for it... meaning even Guinness is a joke.

In other words, don't believe everything you hear, just b/c a third party tries to come across as some kind of legitimate authority.

That is to say, when someone (like me) posts something that your eyes can see, believe it, rather than reverting back to your conditioned response of brainwashing.

P.S. Andre the Giant had that giant Afro he tried to fool ppl w/, and Jagdeep had that HUGE turban in that pic w/ Wade. Don't be fooled by big hair or headgear.

P.P.S. Remember, this is max 7'0" Shaq next to around 7'4" (not 7'5" or 7'6") Yao Ming: Click Here

And this is Ming next to around 7'8" (not 7'9") Sun Mingming... Click Here The guy in the middle is 6'1.25" Kaka.

There's no way in hell Jagdeep is 7'6".

P.P.P.S. Don't be so gullible, bro. I actually met Martin Paquette, who's listed as 7'3". He told me he was 7'2", and might have been as low as 7'0" (not positive about his posture.)

One is actually where the camera us to the left of the subjects Click Here

Vegas

I got your point, according to me that one would be a too short division 1 but I struggle to see him a strong 6'11 barefoot.
Also pictures of Taker with his basketball team shows him as one of the tallest if not the tallest guy. But he was 6'7" "only".

BTW do you think Durant is really taller then 6'9"?
Canson said on 25/Jul/19
@Riccardo 5’7: they upsell Durant’s height to make his accomplishments better being he’s a good shooter and plays like a 2guard. He’s always called 7’ or 7’1”. Durant is still 6’9” range barefoot. Look at him with Draymond Green who Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry say is 6’5”. Look at him with Boogie Cousins who is 6’9ish barefoot”. Durant is 6’11” in shoes in the morning or maybe a couple hours in. The rest of the NBA goes by shoes. But notice how they made a big deal to say Draymond is 6’5 and Barkley 6’4”, that’s their barefoot heights. They do the same for Durant but it’s his shoe height rounded up or even widely exaggerated
Roderick said on 24/Jul/19
@Sotiris You are wrong about about Jagdeep. He was actually measured a tad over 7'7" in shoes. Go onto Youtube and search for the Worlds tallest policeman. He is a legitmate 7'6".

Speaking of basketball I was in Germany few months back and ran into who i assume were the local pro team at the airport check in desk. They had like 4-5 guys in 6'9-6'11 range. Don't think I have ever seen that many tall guys in one public area before.

I don't follow this sport and I don't know a lot about these guys. Btw, Is it true?
Pierre said on 24/Jul/19
@JT=but at least two of your four pics were made with the camera sufficiently high and you don't take good examples because the guys in your pics have a big difference of height here.When you have two tall guy with around the same height the better angle is the neutral angle not a low camera or high camera .With the low camera you can not even watch the top of their head= How can you deduce who is the tallest when you can not even see the top of the head?!

…. The pic is clearly taken from an upward angle, making the taller guy look shorter. The eye/shoulder level difference is way too pronounced and obviously supports what I'm talking about. ….You have to take a pic high up to get an accurate take of very tall ppl. …

That’s not true. These are all very low angle shots and the really tall people come out about where they should be

If the camera angle is extremely low (i.e., almost looking straight up), then your statement is true Click Here

This is not that low of an angle Click Here Khali’s definitely shorter than when he entered WWE but that’s due in part to his lower legs bowing inward disturbingly Click Here

BTW Kevin Durant is probably 6’10” , not 6’9.25”. he’s grown around an inch since he was drafted and is taller than Demarcus Cousins, who measured 6’9.5”. Durant claims 6’10.75” w/o shoes. If true, that’s his height immediately out of bed.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar: 7'1 78" now 7'0.5"

Wilt Chamberlain: 7'0.25"

Shaq: 7'0.25" now 7'0"

Khali: 7'0" now 6'11"

When I met Khali, I would say he was at least 7'0" in shoes. He was wearing very thick Jordan sneakers which definitely gave him a good boost. I would say his 7'1" listings during his early days were measurements in shoes or a morning height, or possibly just a small inflation.

Shaq looks 2" taller than Khali in those pics honestly, but remember Shaq is king at making people look short. He made John Jones look 5'10" and Magic Johnson look 6'3", so in this case, he made Khali look 6'10" when in reality he is taller than that.

I see 206 cm today for Show. Peak probably 209cm.
This also would reduce a lot other wrestlers heights peak / current.

@Vegas Dude, just drawing a line like that is what ppl do when they're woefully ignorant about perspective. Seeing as you're not a rookie and do understand depth perception, you're obviously doing it to split hairs to justify your claim, which serves no purpose. The pic is clearly taken from an upward angle, making the taller guy look shorter. The eye/shoulder level difference is way too pronounced and obviously supports what I'm talking about.

This is a similar upward angle of Satnam and Khali that I just posted on this page. Here it is again:
Click Here Change it to a downward angle and voila... Click Here

You have to take a pic high up to get an accurate take of very tall ppl. Satnam is demonstrably taller than Khali here, thanks to a pic taken from a higher vantage point... Click Here


Another example:

Wilt and Russell...

This: Click Here vs. This: Click Here



It's the same reason so many clueless ppl think Khali is the same height as Shaq here, when he clearly isn't... Click Here Compare this upward pic to the upward Satnam/Khali pic. Same thing.



I'm not sure exactly how much boost his sneaks give; definitely more than just close to 1.4".
Sotiris Gravas said on 21/Jul/19
Before ppl start accusing me of being a downgrader, 6'0.25" for Kevin Durant from my previous post was obviously a typo, lol. (He's 6'9.25", in case you were wondering.)

Rob in this staredown in 1999 between taker and show, show maybe in peak height and in big boots like kane, didn’t see over 4 inches of difference considering the difference boots sole..
Editor Rob
There didn't seem more than 4 inches, but sometimes wrestling ring angles can reduce or enhance differences.
Vegas' said on 21/Jul/19
Sotiris, Shaq is still just wearing sneakers there not platforms, how much boost do you think his shoes give? And yes based on that photo on top of heads alone Shaq is taller Click Here

Canson, Shaq looks taller than 6'11 range on video with LeBron, Garnett, Bosh, Jon Jones in recent years and in full length photos with Wilder, Noel and Magic. If he is 6'22 range either he is getting big boost from footwear more than he estimate or guys are shorter than their measurement stats suggest.

Roderick said on 20/Jul/19
@Sotiris Thanks. I see where you are headed.

In my honest opinion, this isn't just me wanting to make Big Show 6'10" or whatever, but in the past few years, every staredown he has had with another giant, he does look every bit of 6'10" and even a small fraction more at times. Does he wear thick boots? Yes. Do the giants he wrestles also were thick boots. Absolutely. I think Big Show still being 6'10" is possible even in 2019. If I thought he looked 6'9" I would say 6'9". If I thought he was 6'6" I would say 6'6", but I honestly believe he can still easily pull off 6'10".

The comparisons would have to be 100% exactly proportioned the same for them to serve height justice; most of them aren't.

Roderick said on 19/Jul/19
A 1995 Paul White, unhinged neck, straight back and legs, would easily clear 7'0" in a staredown.

A present day Big Show stills look all of 6'10" when standing next to other giants like Oliver Ritchers, Shaq, Big Cass, Braun Strowman, etc. I wouldn't even rule out 6'10.25"-6'10.5" but to be safe, I just go with 6'10". Worse case he's 6'9.75". Definitely not below that. I don't think he is taller than 6'10.5". That's his max IMO. His minimum is 6'9.75".

Maybe at age 50 Big Show will see 6'9", but today he still clears 6'10" easily in staredowns.
SeanR said on 19/Jul/19
Chronology of Big Show (Paul Wight) over the years:
1995-2000: 7’0”
2001-2005: 6’11.5”
2006-2008: 6’11”
2009-2012: 6’10.5”
2013-2015: 6’10” (Shorter than 6’11” Dirk Nowitski during this period). Plus before weight loss.
2016-present: 6’10.75”
ReturnofG said on 19/Jul/19
Sotiris, I am not trying to be mean but you use some of the worst pics to try and prove your point. Your pics with Shaq and Big Show aren't that great. I mean you take pics from several years ago where you can see from head to toe of both men and clearly there's about an inch between them, maybe an inch and a half. Also your Khali and Santam pics are not that great either. You can simply type in to Google their names together and find both men standing straight, with barely an inch between them.


Not trying to argue but fair is fair and did my research on all four men
Roderick said on 19/Jul/19
Or 6'11.5", not 6'11" flat, sorry
Sotiris Gravas said on 19/Jul/19
@Roderick

1) I'd really like it if ppl paid attention to what I actually post, not what others think I said. In other words, I believe Shaq is 6'11.5" now. He's 100% not over 7 feet. Shaq wears custom-made sneaks that give him a good height boost. Not the same when he's in dress shoes. I already posted the pic of him w/ 7'0.5" height-loss Kareem, so there's your proof. Just for fun, here's video footage of Shaq in sneaks w/ 6'5.75" Gronk, having perhaps a little too much fun (2018)... Click Here

2) The match w/ Lesnar is proof that Big Show is around 6'9" now. I understand that you think he's 6'10", but it doesn't change the fact that he's not.


This is Triple H (currently 6'1") w/ Big Show (2010)... Click Here
HHH w/ Show (2018)... Click Here (Rob has him at 6'2"; Rob's wrong.)

Now, compare that w/ HHH and around 6'9" Dwight Howard (2015)... Click Here Howard isn't even standing straight, unlike Show who is, and Howard looks taller than Show. Yes, TALLER. Zero chance that Show is 6'10" today. ZERO.

Shaq is still a strong 7 footer. He could even be 7'0.25"-7'0.5". I doubt he has lost much height at all. So with a solid 7'0" Shaq, you get a solid 6'10" Big Show. Simple math. If Shaq was 6'11", then yes, Big Show would be in the 6'9" range, but that isn't the case for either man..

Sotiris, if you would like to prove that Shaq is 6'11", go ahead. Im not mocking or being cocky with you, Im being serious. Can you show me some evidence of Shaq being 6'11"? I have a hard time seeing him that short.
Dan Trojan said on 18/Jul/19
It's weird with shaq and big show in those pictures sotiris posted shaq does look 3 inches taller but when you think back to when shaq guest hosted raw there was a segment they were both wearing dress shoes so i would say there was no footwear advantage and it only looked like 1.5" inches weird
Canson said on 18/Jul/19
@Vegas: Sotiris didn’t say he was a flat 6’11”. He suggested 6’11.5. That’s possible for him today even if he can still look 7’0” at times
Riccardo 5'7" said on 17/Jul/19
There are enough proves that Big Show is not taller then 6'9.5 today. At his peak, from the other hand, he was not taller then 6'10 3/4 at most. Barefoot. About 7'in shoes.

@Sotiris In that photo, Big Show was leaning forward towards Shaq. I see 6'10" vs 7'0" there

Shaq is still 7’0 today, not 6’11.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Jul/19
@Vegas

1) Shaq is in his custom-made sneaks which give him a bigger height boost (and closer to the camera). Magic isn't.

2) I never suggested Shaq might be as low as 6'11". Those are your words.

3) Kareem is obviously taller in that pic. This might be the 3rd time I reposted it. Hardly an onslaught.

@Roderick At least you acknowledge that Big Show looks max 6'9" from what I posted -- even though you refuse to accept it, despite actual evidence which I've provided for your eyes.

7'0" is definitely a maximum for me, I would say he was definitely able to bust and measure it when he was at his peak. You guys say Undertaker was 6'7.5", but list Big Show at 6'11" peak when he definitely had 4-5 inches in Undertaker.

6'11 and 7'0 with sneakers peak. Big Show was never 7'0 and always look over 3/4 inch shorter than Shaq now 2" between them.
Roderick said on 4/Jul/19
@Canson Big Show was taller than Andre. Big Show was listed as 7'1" in college basketball but in all honesty they do still inflate heights even in college ball and I don't think Show was ever taller than 7'0. Maybe he was 6'11.5" but I can't go 6'11" flat. I can't see under 6'10" for Big Show after seeing him with Great Khali who I met and I would say was a solid 7ft. This listing looks spot on to me.

Listing is ok today. If anything maybe weak 6’10 range 6’9.5 barefoot is the lowest he’d measure but 6’10 with good posture is still possible. I don’t believe he was ever 7’0” though because Andre was never 7’ let alone 7’1 or 2. He was a 6’11 range guy peak
Roderick said on 1/Jul/19
This listing is spot on. Definitely 7'0 in WCW, always a solid 3" taller than Kevin Nash and a solid inch shorter than Ron Reis, who was 7'1". Today after 25 years of being well over 400lb (500 at one point), and all the lifting he does now, I definitely believe it could have taken 2" off him. Good listing. 6'10" now, 7'0" peak.

@ Big ed
I agree with your estimation of Andre and Big Show's heights. However Big Show probably did marginally outweigh Andre---538lb in listing and also confirmed by himself in interview. He even posted on Facebook saying e weighed close 600lb at his heaviest I believe it was in 2006. Big Show before 2006 was supernatual-like, extremely huge human being. He was slightly larger framed than Andre---wider shoulder, bigger arms, etc. I believe Andre weighed also 530lb~540lb or at least something near that at his heaviest but his belly alone probably weighed 300lb lol. Big Show probably tipped over 500lb several times after 2006 but just like Andre he just got enlarged belly. The muscles on his arms and shoulder all seemed gone.

------

Big Show never looked close to 7'4 in WCW. Kareem looked taller next to Kevin Nash in 94 than Wight did next to Nash in 96-98.

Andre was billed 208/10cm in France in late 60s and 6'10 in the UK during a tour in 1969 so it's unlikely he ever topped 7 foot barefoot

@cmillzz:

I drop over an inch through the course of the day and am far, far, far less built than Big Show (plus half his age.) So when you factor in his immense weight and the stress that places on his long frame, and the fact that he’s been enduring it for 20+ years, it’s no surprise to me that he’s lost that much.
cmillzz said on 8/Jun/19
Rob, how has he lost so much height already? Seems quite excessive.

@Sotiris: Grant was listed 6’8” in college I believe. It’s widely known that he is shorter than his listing as they used to call 6’9” generous. He’s likely in the 6’7” range but he’s closer to the camera.

The pic I posted of Big Show w/ 5'8" Lenny Kravitz, listed 6'5" Russell Okung, 6'2" A-Rod and trainer Dodd Romero (2017) is 100% Show on his tiptoes Click Here -- you can see his shoes bending.

Notice how Show looks a lot shorter w/ Romero and Kravitz when he's not on his cute tippy toes (something Andre the Giant also did quite often)... Click Here

Show obviously looked tall w/ Richters b/c he was wearing his big boots. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Here's Brian Grant (listed 6'9") w/ Romero... Click Here Anyone know Grant's barefoot afternoon height?

@Sotiris
Richters is clearly taller than Satnam Singh (7'0) in the picture you post, so I think it's safe to say he is at least 7'1".
Or Richters is actually 7'4 because Satnam Singh is wearing lifts by applying your logic, which is to guess A is wearing lifts because B does not look as tall as you wish.

And I don't think Big Show, being well over 450lb most of his career, is fan of tipping toes.

@Johan 185 cm
When they are talking that Big Show is looking up while Richters is looking down, it is because Big Show has a huge forehead and therefore lower eye level. Thought it's a common sense.

@Chris n Normally, I'd post something like this as a joke to represent what I think of your comments:
Click Here In your case, I think this is more apropos... Click Here

P.S. Posting pics of someone who's short next to a tall guy serves the purpose of demonstrating where they reach someone's chin, to be used as a benchmark. If you weren't so ignorant and annoying, you'd know that.
Chris n said on 3/Jun/19
@Sotiris there is no point in posting a pic with 2 people having over a foot difference in height, to judge height. You are a pest with your posts. They are so inconclusive. Congrats for contributing though.

Beside the likes of Shaq and khali you'd have to say 6'11" for show wcw days he was close to 7'1 when you see him with guys like Ron Reis and haystacks

The problem there is who is taking that pic? Show is closer to the camera and you can see when they are talking that he is looking up while Richters is looking down. I don't see that as a good pic.
Canson said on 21/May/19
He isn’t over 6’10 today. Similar case with Taker as he could be 6’9.5-6’10 but not any lower

@RP Landry is listed as 5'11". I figured 5'10.5" afternoon height.
Sammie Jones said on 16/May/19
I would estimate 6'10.75-6'11.38 barefeet today. There is no way someone can say how tall someone is without meeting them. I still think if Big Show stood erect and tall he would easily measure 7 feet in shoes but is no doubt 6'11 barefeet still today after improving his posture and losing weight.
RP said on 16/May/19
Sotiris,
Isn’t Jarvis Landry actually 5’11.5” & not 5’10.5” per NFL Combine?
Antoli said on 15/May/19
I think 1 inch in photo 2016, size heel similar

Shaquille equal 7 foot 2 inch in basketball shoes
Big Show equal 7 foot 1 inch in wrestling shoes

@ Lars,
Dion Dawkins is actually a “weak” 6’4”...not 6’5”. He was measured in the morning barefoot @ The NFL Combine @ 6’3-7/8” & 314 lbs.
Ironman092289 said on 14/May/19
@Lars He actually does look really tall there, he looks 6'11"-7'0 range. But you shouldn't rule out the possibility of him standing on his tippy toes or having a footwear advantage.
Sotiris Gravas said on 14/May/19
@Lars Konig Another poster who goes by JT already submitted that pic, and I already commented on the fact that Show was clearly wearing lifts. I've already posted pics which prove he's now max 6'9.5", most likely 6'9" flat, i.e., pics w/ 5'10.5" Jarvis Landry. Saying he should be increased to 6'11" is proof you don't know what you're talking about. There are also pics w/ max 5'8" Lenny Kravitz, except for one that has also been posted here where Show is on his tippy toes.
Lars Konig said on 13/May/19
Big Show should be increased to at least 6ft 11 inch current height if not taller based on this recent photo with 6ft 5 inch NFL star Dion Dawkins Click Here

Most of the photos on here are beyond horrible it must be said. Many agendas.

Big Show is 6'9.5" MAX today. 6'10+ range for him today is nonsense

@Erik C. The pics of yourself you attempted to post on Andre's page never uploaded properly. Just sayin'.
Erik C. said on 9/May/19
6'11" ish peak i'd say. And today 6'9.5" - 6'10" range. No more than a decent 6ft10 i'd say.

Also to note that when you see him next to a 6'11" Khali or a 7'0"-ish shaq, he always looks about an inch under Khali, and two inches under Shaq.
SeanR said on 7/May/19
Rob, is it possible that a peak Big Show from 1995 when he started his career in wrestling would have measured the same as Shaq? Meaning could Big Show possibly have been 7’0.25” in the evening?
Editor Rob
I don't think Big Show would have been that tall in the evening, but say he got measured 9.30am or something, then maybe his claim is believable.
BendyUK said on 4/May/19
It would be interesting to know if this was a 7ft door frame?! If it is Show is definitely in the 6’9” neighbourhood in this pic from 2014

He can only be 210cm with shoes now.

I think Shaq is 7'0/ 6'11 3/4.
The Great Khali around 6'11 / 6'10 3/4.
Big Show 6'10" / 6'9 3/4.

Im not talking about peak heights but about that period they showed up together.
Mystical_194cm said on 17/Apr/19
I would say that his peak height was indeed 213cm, but now is about 210cm... I see some comments below that he is 203 cm tall...Just look at match between him and Akebono who may not be really 203cm, but about 201 cm is the most likely..Big Show was about 9-10cm taller easily. He is the real giant, and no doubt about that..

Big Show in that match vs Lashley is gargantuan, everything about him is huge even the belly on him. Had to be pushing 550 lbs. He apparently purposely gained to be big as Andre and was having wwe staff waiting on him backstage bringing snacks

He was 500 or just over in 2006, he was seriously out of shape, he looked like a heart attack in waiting.

Throughout most of his career after than he seemed to be around 430/450, he had little periods of weight loss but fluctuated quite a bit.

Now in 2019, he's around the 380 mark, he's barely wrestling now & spending most of his time in the gym, if could could get down to 350 range that would be ideal given his 6'10 frame.
