I don't think he is 6 feet,he wasn't taller than hbk,who is legit 5 ft 10.
Viper said on 29/Aug/11
Might be 5-10.5 today, never taller than his billed 5-11 height.
James said on 27/Aug/11
looked 2.5 inches shorter than billed 6'1 Mark Henry on Smackdown recently.
Bouncer said on 26/Aug/11
Here Bret is visable taller than Shawn Michaels, it's so irritating ^^

I'd say he's about 5'11. Met him a few times and he didn't seem overly tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
In the 80s and 90s he looked 6ft(183cm). In recent years he's been appearing more like a 5ft11(180cm) guy.
Terryman said on 5/Aug/11
bret hart is easily 0,5 taller than 1,82m RVD while he has relaxed posture,but then again maybe he has more footware Click Here

5'11.5" probaly, calls himself 6', not to much of a stretch
Bouncer said on 19/Jul/11
In this video Shawn Michaels is a whopping 2 inches taller than Bret

But you can't see their footwear though. I think Shawn liked to wear heeled Boots a lot..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/11
It's not that rare, Shaun.
John Cena claims 6ft(183cm) and is listed by the WWE as 6ft1(185cm)
Steve Austin for years has been described as 6ft2(188cm) and claims to be 6ft1, although I think he's maybe 186-187cm.
Shaun said on 12/Jul/11
How unusual for a wrestler to actually state a legit height
mike said on 11/Jul/11
Didn't they say he was 6.3 in the 80's?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/11
He does look 6ft0.5 with Mamun...
But only 5ft11 with Rob
5'8.18758596 said on 2/Jul/11
Yeah, he looks quite the strong 6 footer for being a guy in his 50s and with back problems, do you think he could have been a weak 6'1 at peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I doubt it]
Danimal said on 20/Jun/11
Brotha says on 12/Jun/11
He's 6ft exact and was always around 235 lbs in his wwe/wcw days. Said so in his autobiography, and he's one honest dude.

5'11" (his billed height in the 1970's and 1980's)..
tell-em said on 20/Jun/11
i've met the man in person. 6'0" indeed. just like he said in his book.
Dmeyer said on 19/Jun/11
Thats a 1.5 in lean so near 6 ft hé does look 4 in on mamun

okay 6ft peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/11
182cm minimum...overall 6ft looks believable.
Alex said on 4/Jun/11
Looks 5'11 with Rob. Maybe a 6'0 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
I disagree James...I remember seeing that Wrestlemania match years ago and if I recall, The Hitman (Bret Hart) was a little taller than HBK.

I think Bret Hart is 5ft11.75(182cm) and HBK is 5ft11(180cm)
James said on 26/May/11
he was a fraction shorter than HBK in 1997.

Today there probably around the same height
Steve Summers said on 25/May/11
Seeing Bret up close in person he is taller than I expected and I am 6' .Bret is A very big muan it was the best experience learning he lives in my neighborhood and does his grocery shopping where I work! He's the best there is the best there was &.the best there ever will be.
CJ said on 24/May/11
He looked more in the high 5'10 range standing with John Cena just now. Can't be 6'0
rafa said on 17/May/11
He doesn't look 5'11" in any pic, he looks about 6' in both pics
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/11
Looks 180cm or 181cm with Rob
James said on 24/Apr/11
he looks smaller than 6ft with rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/11
6"0.5(184cm) peak Rob?
tell-em said on 9/Apr/11
well apparently he does look over 5'11" next to me, mamun, and rob so that billing is either a fib or inaccurate.
Danimal said on 8/Apr/11
Never been over 5'11", which was his ORIGINAL billing in Stampede Wrestling and in the 1980's before he became a STAR in the 1990's... Same height as HBK..
aaronious said on 8/Apr/11
he was 6'1" in his prime fo sho
Sam said on 4/Apr/11
Solid 183cm, morning might be 185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/11
Upstraight with Mamun he could maybe look 184cm or even 185cm
James said on 21/Mar/11
He is a legit 6ft
J.J. said on 11/Mar/11
A solid 182cm man he couldn't be less than 5'11 and 5/8ths
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/11
186cm is pushing it...
James said on 24/Feb/11
rampage are u blind? With rob he is dropping some serious posture and still and still looks 180cm.

With Mamum looks a legit 183cm.

so yeah maybe just 183cm peak but 184cm is not impossible either
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
How does he look 184cm with Mamun, James?

Honestly he looks 181-182cm in both pics
James said on 20/Feb/11
184cm peak
tell-em said on 17/Feb/11
go meet the man. you'll be surprised he isn't 5'11". hes 6'0".
James said on 16/Feb/11
Legend says on 16/Feb/11
He looks 5'11.5, maybe 6 feet.

I disagree with rob he is 5'11.25 slouching down.
Legend said on 16/Feb/11
He looks 5'11.5, maybe 6 feet.
James said on 15/Feb/11
With rob looks 181cm with bad posture and with Mamun

With rob he actually looks like he could be taller than 6ft like 6'1 or 186cm if he stood propoerly.

With Mamun looks 6ft 1/2 (184cm). I think theres a fair chance this guy was or is over 6ft at least when he was younger.
Tuga said on 8/Feb/11
Rob met and took a picture with him and estimates his height at 6', the picture confirms it, if bret stood straight he would have Rob by an easy 4 inches.

This is an easy one and a good mesuring stick for many other wrestlers.

Why was he billed at 5-11 then?

correct jt. those 2 pics are positive proof that he is 6'0" and i too have met him in the flesh, stood right next to him, shook his hand, and also saw 6'0". bret claimed 6'0" in his book. hes 6'0".

hulk hogan is around 6'3 now and 6'5 at his prime. i am not sure how tall bret hart is but he looks 6'0 next to mamun and rob.
tell-em said on 27/Jan/11
Viper says on 26/Jan/11
Yet Hogan looks 6-2 with 6-4 Troy Aikman

how does he look 6'2"? because hogan is slouching? thats the only proof YOU GOT.

Here we have a 6'1"+ Vince McMahon in 1997 with 5'11" Bret Hart. This goes to show how much height Vince has lost since the 1990's (and he was already in his early 50's here). Watch at 3:53 onwards: Click Here

But in some how he was down to to 5'10 - 5'11 before 1996 which we can prove here when seing him next to your 5'9 bulldog Click Here Click Here then he did suddenly grow back to 6'1 at a later point? what caused vince to grow back those 2-3 inches at age of 50+?

The time sequence you refer to is laughable, cant you see by looking at the ropes and the crowd that the angle is being tilted ALOT?

Vegas has already posted several top to toe pics of vince and bret together, in each one bret edges out vince and you knows it. Bret 5'11 then vince 5'10 1/2 or bret 6'0 then vince 5'11 1/2 its your choice.

Hogan lost a bit of height due to knee and hip and back surgeries. plus he was a wrestler and really tall (6'6ish) to begin with. A man in their fifties who is under 6'5 will NOT lose anything more than a 1/4 which is there if he straightens properly. The only time people lose an inch plus is from surgery or some freak strain on their backs/spine. This losing height is bs until men are in their mid 70s. I have pics of my dad and he is same height difference with my grandfather back then and now.

I'm not a fan of height loss arguements. I feel they get overused and are lacking in evidence. But even I will admit Hogan has lost about 2" of height. The idea that he went from 6'6" to 6'2.5" is ridiculous though. More like 6'5.5" to nearly 6'4" now.

John said on 29/Nov/10
Wrestling as a I like to think is Fixed more then fake, but wrestlers heights are 100% fake. Here is a list of a few which are true and what wrestling billed them as ......

André the Giant Real height was just over 7 foot, he was never this 7'5 that wrestling had him down as. He lost height near the end of his life which he dropped down to 6'9 to 6'10.

Kane(glenn jacobs) was billed as a 7 footer but was lucky if he tipped 6'8. to this day many say the guy in bare feet is no taller then 6'5 ??

Kurt Angle - Remember the days when WWE billed as 6'1? The time when he faced John Cena and Angle looked 3 inches shorter but the WWE had Cena an inch taller lol, Angle was never taller then 5'10 but is looking close to 5'9 ?

Rey Mysterio, has been billed 5'7 - 5'6 but is 5'3''
Shantal said on 28/Nov/10
Looking at his boots, he can't be taller than 180cm. And he is probably shorter than that.
James said on 20/Nov/10
with mamun looks 6'0. with rob slightly under cause of bad posture.
Frank said on 5/Nov/10
Rob you and Mamum are about the same height i dont think Hart looks any taller than me next to Mamum what do you think??

5'11" is false for the hitman. everyone who's met him, besides that downgrader danimal, say hes 6'0". add me to that list aswell. the man aint 5'11". hes 6'0".
Joe said on 6/Jul/09
hey rob. you're really fortunate to have met bret. his autobiography is great. what did you think he weighed when you met him?

[Editor Rob: weight is far harder to judge, I don't really pay that much attention to weight so wouldn't guess anyway ;)]
J.J. said on 5/Jul/09
Looks a comfortable 6'0"
Anonymous said on 3/Jul/09
Red...the last pic you have, Bret isn't doing shoulders back military posture either like Alex in the pics and he could still be bending some holding the belt most likely. Good example but I wouldn't say on the nose! It'd be right an even 6 feet if Bret straightens up!

6'0 for the hitman

Electric Shock says on 3/Jun/09
I always got Bret at 6'0.25"...not really far off from what you guys have him at. I have Savage at a dead even 6'0", given a 5.5" height disadvantage with Hogan. Bret comes slightly taller than Savage.

Met Bret. He was 5'11".
Met Davey Boy. He was 5'9"
I'm 5'9.5"-5'10", so I'm a good height for judging them both.

I met the bulldog a few times in the mid 90's and he really never looked 5'9.. He never seemed that short at all, i thought he looked nearly 6ft..i got 2 photos with him and he his posture was really bad, he had his arm around my shoulder on one side and my friend who was 5'8 on the other side, he was definetly taller then my 5'8 friend.. Going on meeting him and the pics i'd probably say 5'10 min... Not a lift wearer, he never seemed bothered about height.
This was may 1994, if you recall the shape he was in when he jumped into the cage match between owen and bret, thats what he looked like here...Massive and ripped... 5'10 and 260 lbs and really good to all the fans.. Ill try and dig the polaroid out and post it up on here...
Mamun said on 31/May/09
Yes my friend RED the possibilty to what you are saying is very much there !
But I have seen other pictures of Bulldog and Bret where the difference is
more than what I see here . Also he wasn't that much taller than Owen Hart !

My friend T , even celebs cry out for help a lot of times and thats how I ,
as Superman , go out and give them a hand and then get their pictures ! I
hope you beleive me ?

but then again red, mamun, frank and danimal HAVE ALL seen bulldog in the flesh and ALL say 5'9, so he could be wearing lifts next to bret hart

your last pic red, proves that bulldog is 5'10, although even today i think bret hart is 6'0.

My friend Mamun, could it be that Bulldog was slouching with you?
Very bulky man can lose so much due to bad posture.

You have ALL seen pics of me on this site. I have nothing to hide. I am a strong 5'9.5". I have MET Bret Hart in 2001-2002. I have met Davey Boy in 1995. I have met Jake Roberts in 1990 and Iron Sheik that same year.

Bret was MAX 5'11" when I met him in Calgary. He was slightly taller than me. He was NOT a full 6'0".
Davey was MAX 5'9" when I met him in Montreal. He felt to be slightly shorter than me.
Jake was 6'5" when I met him in Montreal at the hilton hotel. Had inches on my 6'2" step father at the time.
Iron Sheik was short, but then again, so was I when I met him (I was MAX 5'5" at that time).

I got the chance to meet Bret at a book signing yesterday. He was LOVELY, but I didn't get the chance to guess his height since he was sat down the whole time.

He looks 6'0" to me, at least at his peak. Bulldog never looked under 5'10" to me either, but Danimal seems pretty insistent that he was 5'9".

yet with vince mcmahon and several others,Bulldog was always in his wrestling boots or big boots...i've never seen footage of the man in casuals...BUT he looked the same height as 5'9.5 chris jericho at owen hart's funeral. the pic is in jericho's book.

I have to give savage 6'1.. I remember him onthe uk kids tv sshow going live back in 1992 and host sarah green comented on him being a really big guy... she wouldnt say that if he was 5'11.
He had really bad possture, always stood with his legs really bent at the kness and shoulders hunched up.
savage never stood at his full height.

Does anybody have any idea how tall Randy Savage is? He was billed at 6'2'' in the WWF but I doubt he was over 6'. If you search 'you gotta be bold to wear the gold' at youtube (can't get the link to work) he certainly doesn't look taller than Bret.

i personally think bret hart was no more than 5'11 at his peak...i was checking out the pics in his autobiography and he sure looked MUCH shorter than roddy piper..piper had about two inches on him..shawn michaels (6'0 peak) had an inch over him...he looked just about the same height as 5'10ish jim neidhart...i really think hart would wear lifts in the ring on certain occasions.

5'10-5'11 sounds accurate for Bret, i think 6'0 is a little too tall for him.

Danimal, you actually got to have a beer and converse with Brett Hart?(and in Calgary no less, where the man is prob considered a God) i am sooo jealous man! i try to get around and meet as many pro wrestlers as possible, but to date i have only met a handfull. nice going!

ill thicken the irony, i remember when austin and hitman were feuding in the mid 90's, they got nose to nose in the middle of the ring befor one of their matches and were practically the exzact same height, which would mean that either brett is taller than 5'11-6 ft range, or that austin is shorter than 6'1-6'2 range.

Bret - 5'11"
Austin - 6'0"

That is MORE than .5" hahaha. When Piper straightens out he appears to be at least 1.5"-2" on 5'11" MAX Bret Hart (who I met in person 8 years ago). Piper was over 6'0" at this point of his career. By how much? Not sure.

8 years ago bret was already mid 40s and his career was over after a terrible injury at the hands of goldberg, he was not peak height 8 years ago

There is no 2" there, not even close.

Do you realize in most situations, when a person is 2" shorter than another that puts the shorter person's eye level just below the taller person's nostrils?

I'm beginning to see why you saw 2"+ in the RR video.

at what point, they look the same height throughout there, its obvious you want piper taller, but 2 inches, maybe if he stood on a box

I just cant see Bret being any more then 5'11. I met Davey boy a couple of times in the mid 90's and i'd say he was 5'10. Bret never looked 6ft.
I always thought Piper, hbk, Bret, flair, bulldog and a few others where all under 6ft with austin and a few other guys just over 6ft.

Piper was easly over 6
Danimal said on 29/Dec/08
Piper was over 6'0" in the 1980's. The man underwent MAJOR back surgery and an entire hip replacement in the 1990's. He lost some serious height, as did Hogan and Superstar Billy Graham. IMO those men lost the most height for their age.

bret was never billed at 5'11 and poster Halb worked out with bulldog in manchester and he said he wasn't under 5'10, never looked under 5'10 either, there is a great photo from about 1986 of hogan and bulldog and hogan only has about 5 1/2 inches on bulldog

None of that is true. Bret Hart looked at times to be barely taller than Mean Gene in the mid 80's WWF interviews and YES, he WAS billed at 5'11" in the 1980's in the WWF and so was SHAWN MICHEALS and so was DAVEY BOY SMITH. When the British Bulldog made his debut into wrestling he was billed at 5'9" and Dynamite Kid at 5'8". These are ALL their ACCURATE heights.

I had a beer with Bret in downtown Calgary. This was exactly 7 years ago. I was visiting an ex-girlfriend of mine at the time who lived in Calgary. Bret was a nice guy. I stood up after our beer and shook his hand. He didn't feel taller than me. He was around 5'11". Owen was 5'8"-5'9". Bulldog I met in 1995 in Montreal, when I was in grade 11. He was about an inch shorter than me. So, MAX 5'9" for him. I met Jake The Snake Roberts with my step dad the summer of 1990. Jake was in town for a match at the old Montreal Forum. My step father and I met him backstage and he signed an autograph for me telling me to believe in myself. My step dad WAS exactly 6'1 3/4" at that time (he was only 38 then) and Jake was between 6'4"-6'5" easily. My step dad later told me that he felt short next to Jake. I also met Iron Sheik when I was in grade 7 or 8. He came to my school in Montreal. I couldn't gauge his height, because I had yet to go through my growth spurt. I was only around 5'0" at that time.

Owen never looked more than a flat 5'8". British Bulldog was 5'9" according to Frank and Bulldog was always clearly taller.

His billed height is 6ft1. The guys only 51 he could have only lost a cm in height. I could be wrong becuase he could have suffered injuries in wrestling which might have made loose a little bit of height.

His billed height USED TO BE 5'11" up until the early 1990's.

This is ridiculous, I met the hitman myself just over a month ago. I spoke to him him - he was standing straight, it was around 8pm. I'm 5ft 11.5 in the morning so at that time 5ft 11 - he definitely, definitely was .5 taller than me. 6ft today but he has rounded shoulders and his posture isn't straight (usually).

If Hart is only 5'9"/5'10", keep this Click Here in mind when analyzing that Andre-Backlund pic that supposedly proves Andre was 7'0". Andre would be no more than 6'9". IMO, Hart is around 5'11", maybe a bit taller, but no more than 6'0".
dave said on 28/Nov/08
the man was a peak 6 footer if straight and in peak, no doubt.... besides hes clearly not bothered by what people think of his height from the pic with glenn, so i would reallx doubt if hes under his own 6ft claim.... usually non legit 6 footers (who claim it) stand uber straight at all times.... besides, even now, if bret was to stand straight id say easy 6ft.

6ft flat today

You got this one wrong Rob. Bre was billed at 5'11" throughout the 1970's and 1980's and only got his 6'1" billing when he started making a name for himself. Met the man in Calgary almost 7 years ago and had MAX 1" on me. We spoke for a long time. 5'10.5"-5'11" MAX.

Vegas, nice pix - that was obviously the same show (either that or his uses the same runners and tshirt). Red, I am somewhat obsessed with heights so I am extremely accurate hence messaging myself at 181.5cm - I have a picture with him when he was sitting down signing autographs but non standing up as I only got to talk to him for about ten seconds as he was getting dragged away by security. Brets posture was fine as he stretched his back and stood up straight. He is definitely 6ft tall.

I think his height usually confuses my like back in the WWF Bret Hart must of been 6'0" but maybe in 1997 he was billed at 6'1" then when he went on WCW he was taller than Ric Flair on the 1st episode of Thunder. And close to his retirement he was billed at 6'0".
Derek said on 1/Mar/08
The thing is Bret was billed at 5'11" prior to winning the WWE title in 1992. It was after that where he was billed at 6'1".
MattC said on 20/Jan/08
At about the 5:07 minute mark you'll see Stone Cold and Bret go faces to face and they are about the same height you could make a case that Bret is actually a little taller than him there. I believe this was before Austin had his neck problems or knee surgeries so he was at his peak height. Judging by this I dont see how Bret Hart was lower than 6ft maybe 5'11.5 at the least at this time.

Got to meet Bret Hart and a bunch of other wrestlers in 2000 at the London Arena in March of that year. I'm 5'8 and standing next to Bret he was no more then 5'11 - 100% Bret is not a 6 footer, my brother was with me and he is 6'2 and he looked down at him. Also Ric Flair was the same height - Kevin Nash looked a good 6'10 and Jeff Jarrett no more then 5'9.

Kevin Durant said on 23/Nov/07
I tend to agree with Editor Rob's Listing that Bret Hart is a legit 6 footer, the reason he can be smaller at times is because of his posture, and the WWE Billed him just an inch taller than his real height.

Mamun said that he is a solid 5'8" in the evening, which makes Bret Hart a legit 6 footer in comparison with mamum in this picture.

Bret is NO 6'0". Met the man in Calgary 6 years ago. He had about 1-1.5" on me. He had been listed at 5'11" up until 1990? Shorter than HBK, or at the very most, the same height as him. You have him too high Rob.

I read a couple of times he was 5'11". In general, I think these wrestling heights are pretty much with their wrestling boots on. Most of the wrestlers heights, especially by the WWE, are exagerated.
