How tall is Big Show

Big Show's Height

6ft 10 (208.3 cm)

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".

@Sotiris In that photo, Big Show was leaning forward towards Shaq. I see 6'10" vs 7'0" there
cmillzz said on 16/Jul/19
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.

If Shaq is 6'11 today he sure can pull off looking 7 foot+ on a regular basis Click Here

Shaq is taller than Kareem in that photo you keep posting btw.
Sotiris Gravas said on 13/Jul/19
@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.

Far too many ppl on this site (not you) would rather kill themselves than say I was right. It has nothing to do w/ me or Big Show -- more to do w/ themselves.

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.

7'0" Big Show

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.

Canson said on 3/Jul/19
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.
cmillzz said on 28/Jun/19
I figured Andre at his heaviest weighed more than Big Show at his heaviest.

@ 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.

This is the perfect example of what happened Andre the giant yet he was in way more bad health than big show and people on here say Andre couldn't have lost more than a inch it's jus ridiculous show was 7'1 in wcw days and Eric beshoff said he wore lifts to get him to 7'4 because of the son of Andre angle big show has lost 2.5" over 20 years that Andre couldn't laughable Andre weighed more than show by close to a 100lbs by the late 80s early 90s he was excess of 530lbs he had back surgery in 1986 or 7 which contributed to more height loss and health issues he had bad ankles which he broke in 1983 so like say Andre lost as much height as show in my opinion even more Andre peak 7'0.5" down to 6'10 at death big show 7'1 peak now 6'10.5"
------

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 said on 17/Jun/19
then again, maybe not quite 7’0 peak, but at least 6’11 I would have thought. Maybe 6’11.5” peak.

Lanky said on 10/Jun/19
@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.
Canson said on 8/Jun/19
@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.

@Short and Wide Richters is closer to the camera and no, he's not taller than Singh -- they're the same height, 7'0". This is Richters w/ 7'4" Rob Zwaan Click Here ,
Click Here so Richters is 100% NOT 7'1", like you say.

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.

@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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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.

Im not talking about peak heights but about that period they showed up together.

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..

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.

He looks much thinner in this clip compared to 2006 one I posted, he has neck etc and weighs 440 in gear. I assume scale isn't worked. He did say last year on video that at Wrestlemania 24 (few weeks after this) he was 425lb Click Here

He also thinks looking back at Wrestlemania 24 he was "fat" because now he has abs.

MelvinJones he certainly wasn't near 600 but 500 in late 2006 is believable for sure.

Scale could be worked, Floyd weighed in at 159 lbs on that scale which would have been his heaviest weight ever in a fight. Around that time Floyd was generally fighting at under 150 lbs.

Big show was huge but if he really weighed 600 then Wwe would have said that he was 675 or 700.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Apr/19
@Canson
In the mid 2000's he looked a lot bigger than he is today. But even then I think he was around 450. I remember him being billed at 385 in his most recent match, so that means he's not anything over that these days.
Vegas' said on 3/Apr/19
Heaviest Big Show ever was was in late 2006. It's entirely believable he was legit 500lb then as his weight exploded at the time. I met him in early 2006 and he looked morbidly obese at that time with big puffy eyes and he gained more weight by November/December of that year.

In this clip you can see his neck disappeared and his arms, belly are huge compared to say 2001-02. He also makes Lashley who is probably 260+ there look like a small child Click Here

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Apr/19
@Short and Wide
I doubt Big Show ever saw over maybe 475 at his heaviest. Wrestlers exaggerate their weight a lot. He was announced as 500 even back in 2006 so he definitely wasn't over that.
SeanR said on 1/Apr/19
Hi Rob,

Any chance that Big Show height has increased due to the weight loss? His posture looks better now than say 3 years ago.
Is it possible he’s back up to 6’11”?

The pic JT has posted below back on 3/16 shows Show having at least 7 inches on a NFL listed 6’4” player.
Lyle said on 1/Apr/19
@Short and wide, kanes boots were 2inch max, 3 inch would be ridiculous, it'd be like wrestling in high heels, he moved like a robot in his 2 inches nevermind 3 inch
Short and Wide said on 1/Apr/19
@Alex: Big Show already started to lose height when he lost hair.
In 2000 or 2001 he looked 4 inches taller than Kane who was closer to 6'8" wearing 3"+ shoes.
He was wearing 2"+ shoes and thus he was probably very close to 7'1".
He then put on a lot of weight, twice, and had back surgery before he met Shaq the first time.
About 2006 at his heaviest he weighed about 537 lb (but he admitted near 600lb on his FB post).
Look for his 2005~2006 footage on Youtube he looked absolutely humongous. A huge human being overall.
He still lost and put on some weight in the following years but was simply adding girth to his belly.
I believe, however, that he still stands 6'11"+ if he tries to keep his posture right.
Before he met Strowman the second time, he lost massive weight and could stand straight, he looked at least 4" taller than strowman, both wearing similar footwears.
Dan Trojan said on 27/Mar/19
Alex v nice video shaq looks to be about 1.5 to 2 inches taller than show and you can clearly see footwear and it's the same
Canson said on 24/Mar/19
@RP: he still looks the same height that he was when he came in the league. Comparing him to Draymond Green and comparing Demarcus Cousins to Green, they look of similar height. Cousins would likely only be a solid 6’9” being the 6’9.5 came early morning. Anthony Davis looks like he edges Durant as does 6’9.75 measured Deandre Jordan
rawdshaq said on 24/Mar/19
@Sotiris "I prefer to side with reality"

What's that even mean bro? Dude nobody can guess anybodys height correctly unless they get height checked in the afternoon. Your "reality" may be different from somebody elses. Maybe Big Show is only 6'8", maybe he's still 7 feet tall. Nobody really knows so we just go in the middle and say 6'10" :/
RP said on 24/Mar/19
Everyone related with the NBA & even Kevin Durant himself talk about how he grew a solid one inch after his rookie season in Seattle. And that he’s now 6’10” barefoot & 6’11” in sneakers.

You can use the basketball to scale the pics to get a rough idea how Big Show (in 2014) and Kanter would measure up. Click Here I added Durant, who is at least 6’10”. I believe Kanter was measured a little shorter than that.
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
Kanter measuring 6’9.75 was in the early morning. He honestly doesn’t look much over 6’9” barefoot if at all. He’s very similar with Kevin Durant and can appear slightly taller or shorter at times. So Big Show would appear maybe a half inch or inch taller if he’s still near 6’10”.
Heisenberg89 said on 19/Mar/19

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

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

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

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

I've never noticed that until now, but excellent point. The hypocrisy and double standards are clear here. They're the same type of people who'll then say that an athlete has grown just because their measurement's lower than what they wanted it to be. They are the true definition of an "upgrader".
viper said on 18/Feb/19
Rasheed Wallace measured 6-9.75. I think he looks similar physically to Ewing.

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

@Sotiris: 6’5.25 may be an impression due to his poor posture. He still looks 6’6” when he stands straight but I doubt he’s over that. Anywhere around 6’6” is good
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: what’s even crazier is that people are telling him he downgrades yet people are accusing him of lying up about his height meaning they’re trying to downgrade him. And 6” is the proper definition of downgrading. Not saying someone is about an inch shorter than listed
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: I’ve gotten the same and I agree it’s childish. But if we look around hard enough (you probably know without me even saying anything) that there are a few posters who always want celebs to be taller than Rob lists them or provide egregiously high estimates for them. Yet nothing is ever said about banning them
Philip McMullin said on 17/Feb/19
Canson dude, his guesstimates are preposterous.
Canson said on 17/Feb/19
Downplaying someone’s height like Sotiris is being accused of is no worse or better than wanting to make them taller than they actually are. I don’t see why it’s only said when someone thinks a celeb isn’t as tall as listed but never when you have guys here inflating celebs all day

Ewing measuring 6-9.75 I can buy.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
@Canson
There's a poster here (I don't wanna mention any names) who said that my guesses suck and have called for me to be banned as well, just because they disagreed with my estimates. It's really childish and petty if you think about it. I've been a poster on this site for years and I've disagreed with a lot of posters and even had heated arguments with some, but not once have I ever called for someone to be banned.

That's one picture of Big Show @Sotiris where he looks unusually short. First off, there are 1000 other times Big Show and Triple H have gotten photos together, and Big Show looks 6'10" - 6'11" in all of them but that. Your pictures are designed to make Big Show look as short as possible. He was listed as 7'1" in high school dude, he was at least 7 feet at peak. As for Undertaker, his forehead is huge, and his hat makes him look way shorter. He can easily be 6'6" today and the picture with Brosofdestruction proves it.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Feb/19
@Canson Thanks for being the classy gentleman that you are.

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

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


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

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

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

p.s.@Sotiris I don't know what the problem you had with Big Show. There's no way he is only 6'9" or even 6'9" as you insisted today. And what's the point you keep mentioning your 6'7" height here? Seems to me one day you want to claim you're taller than Big Show lmao
Canson said on 13/Feb/19
@Viper: he claimed 6’9.75. Robert broome said he looked 6’9 and change in person so it’s beluevable. I doubt he’s ever been more than 6’10 however
ced said on 12/Feb/19
@sotiris, what would say were the peak heights for Show, Kane, Nash, Taker?

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

Would you say this is correct?

I just watched some good old 1995-1996 Big Show WCW. No doubt he was 7 feet tall. Today he is 6'10" - 6'11" range.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


@Ozzy LOVED that pic of Yao and Love.


@HarveyFinkelmatter Maybe Sly Stallone "borrowed" Show's lifts that day (on the sly)...

Canson said on 30/Jan/19
Lol I’ve been saying all along that Yao isn’t 7’5”. Hes 7’4 tops. Love is closer to 6’7 than 6’8. He’s batrly taller than Lebron if even

Not nice look at this picture i konow i know:)
Akebono is a strong 6'6? If he is, there big show looks 6'9 strong or 6'10?
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
@Sotiris: I doubt Klay is 6’5.75 at a low. Almost no NBA player measures the combine height later in the day. They’re almost always early morning these days. At times Klay edges Draymond by maybe a CM but at times it’s hard to see a difference. I would believe Draymond to be 6’5” flat to 6’5 1/8 and Klay 6’5 1/4-1/2 perhaps.

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

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

He was a little over seven feet tall in his prime. 7 feet and a quarter. 214cm (:
FBMC said on 29/Jan/19
@Sotiris If that soldier is 6’8”, Big Show is a lot taller than 6’9”. Funny how you used that as proof that he’s 6’9” tops when it actually contradicts your statement.

HarveyFinkelmatter said on 29/Jan/19
You are right as usual Gratis. Mychal Thompson was about 6'8 when he played basketball. Big Show has looked a lot shorter on tv lately. Maybe he isn't wearing his big lifts?

I think , after Durant LeBron pic, that Big Show is same height or 0.25 more 0.25 less than Durant .
But how its hard to guess this guys height...one picture seems 6'8, an other 6'9.5...an other 6'10 weak...
For me he is, now, between 6'9/6'9.5.
Canson said on 27/Jan/19
He could be 6’10 today or 6’9.5 worst case. I doubt more or less than

Canson Durant is taller than deandre jordan in the pic you posted i think durant is closer to 6.10 than to 6.9
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Phenom89: I can’t find it now but I’m sure it’s posted somewhere either on this page or Durant’s
Phenom89 said on 24/Jan/19
@Canson
I didn't see that picture, but of course i cant exclude 6'10 for him totally.

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

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

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

Durant and Deandre Jordan

Durant and Boogie

Durant is favored in the pic which is why it’s as pronounced as it is. There’s not much difference between how Durant looks with Draymond Green and how Boogie looks with him

Canson said on 24/Jan/19
@JT: I doubt KD measured right out of bed. If anything an hour after or two hours when he got to practice. My guess is that Boogie is 6’9” flat since his early morning was 6’9.5 and that KD is slightly over 6’9”. He didn’t look as tall as Deandre Jordan who was 6’9.75 at the pre draft and has 4” on Draymond Green who was said to be 6’5” by Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry. 6’10.75 may be in shoes earlier in the day or even later in the day meaning 6’9.5 or 6’9.25 if earlier. They make him 6’11” just to make his shooting more impressive and to keep up with the others who are overlisted. He isn’t as tall as Lamarcus Aldridge who is 6’10” range
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Jan/19
@rawdshaq I think Big Show had lifts inside his boots here... Click Here What do you guys think? Same as Strowman w/ Show here... Click Here The heels in both pics look irregular.

I also think Show's on his tippy toes here... Click Here You can tell by how the fronts of his shoes show signs of bending. Show is not on his tippy toes in this second pic, and subsequently looks shorter w/ 5'8" Lenny Kravitz... Click Here Does Show look 6'10" next to 5'8" Kravitz in the 2nd pic...? The answer is no, in case anyone was wondering.
JT said on 23/Jan/19
Durant looks a little taller than DeMarcus Cousins Click Here who’s probably a strong 6’9”. Like Dwight Howard, Durant’s definitely grown some since the 6’9” draft measurement.

Durant claims to have been measured 6’10” ¾” without shoes Click Here If true, that’s probably a right out of bed height. 6’10” is good mid-day estimate for him.
rawdshaq said on 21/Jan/19

Big Show wore lifts in the attitude era to be 7 feet. He might have always been 6' 10" - 6' 11" (he had same boots Kane had)
Canson 194 said on 20/Jan/19
@Phenom89: there’s another pic with he and KD from a while back. This one they were standing next to each other and Show had him by around an inch. I wouldn’t doubt Show still being 6’10” when that pic was taken. Today he could still be 6’10” but I would say the worst case scenario 6’9.5 perhaps or weak 6’10”
Canson said on 19/Jan/19
@Miller: Durant isn’t as tall as Deandre Jordan. But I agree on Lebron 6’7”. KD 6’9.25

I would say a bit less 6'10 here, don't know if you agree.

@Canson: Click Here
Hmm hard to say but probably you could have right, but i guess they are same height if both in equal posture. Footwear also are important, but this puc is suspect..you've right.
miller said on 18/Jan/19
Canson i think kevin durant is 6.9 1/2
Lebron is 6.7 flat
big show is diffcult to judge
rawdshaq said on 17/Jan/19
Sotiris I don't know what you are thinking but if you are 6'7" and a 5'8" guy comes 1 inch under your chin, then Big Show can easily be 6' 10" or 6' 11" there. Kevin Durant is 7 feet tall with his basketball shoes on, which means Big Show can easily be 6' 10" with Lebron. I don't know why you want to downgrade Big Show so much...
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Miller: my guesses on the two.

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

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

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

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

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

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