I believe 5’11 was also Bret’s peak height. In the early 90s WWE listed Bret’s height as 5’11 then they changed it to 6’0 a year later.looks like he hasn’t lost much height, maybe only 1 inch. I don’t believe he’s 238 lbs.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/23
Yeah I'm not sure if a full inch has been lost. 6ft definitely looks correct for his peak, I wouldn't change that. He doesn't have great posture I notice when he's being interviewed, always hunched forward.

I wonder if he can still manage close to the 5ft11½ if measured? He was probably still close to his peak in 2008, he was only 51.
oren metser said on 1/May/23
I'd say he is only 2 inches taller than Rob(1.73m-1.75m)5'8-5'9 in this pic , I'd guess him as a fraction shy of 6 feet and by now 5'10.75 or 5'10.5(1.79-1.80m).

Rob can you add the British bulldog
I think his height might be 5'11¾
Alex 6'0 said on 6/Apr/23
5'11.5 peak. Was an inch shorter than steve austin who was 6'0.5 peak. Looks 5'11 with Rob in 08
Matt C said on 5/Mar/23
Bret with 5'10-11ish Jay Leno in 1999.Despite standing casually Bret still is noticeably taller.

berta said on 25/Dec/22
still looks atleast 5´11. I think he west from a legit 6 foot to 181,5 now but with bad posture can look 5´11 to people.
Most Legit 6'3 said on 4/Aug/22
I think he was a pretty legit 6’. Still looks at least 5’11 today.
SeanR said on 1/Apr/22
I know this is a bad angle but Bret Hart looks to have more than 2 inches on current 5’9” Ric Flair: Click Here

Hart probably can pass for more than 5’11” (maybe 5’11.5”).
Joseph 5'10.5" said on 27/Mar/22
I met him earlier today - don’t know how to post a picture here - but I’m 5’10.5”, and my dad is 5’11.5”. Bret had one inch on me and was the exact same height as my dad. I would guess that he was just about 6ft in his prime, maybe just under
Joseph 5'10.5" said on 27/Mar/22
I met Bret earlier today at a meet and greet - I’m 5’10.5” and my father is 5’11.5” - Bret was an inch taller than me, as well as the exact same height as my father, and all three of us were wearing regular athletic shoes with no difference in height - I think it’s fair to say he’s about 5’11.5”
Junior Koo said on 7/Mar/22
Bret Hart is 5'10
datacipher said on 4/Mar/22
UndertakerFrank Again, I have stood nose to nose, toe to toe with Owen - for an hour -- in wrestling gear/boots. I'm 5'10 in the morning....maybe 5'9 at night...he was a shade taller than me. No if/and/but. Your claim he's 5'8 is ludicrous. I can't make anyone believe me over you, but anyone who met ANY of them knows better.

So you hung out with them and Owen was 5'8?? Let me ask you, how tall was Benoit then? 5'6???! What would that make Eddie Guerrero? 5'3? 5'2? LOL. Click Here
Rapha said on 1/Feb/22
For a wrestler and being in his 60s , he has not shrunk that much.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/22
183cm looks correct for his prime, today maybe still 181cm?
Editor Rob
Think he is close to 5ft 11 today.
ChaosControl1 said on 23/Jan/22
I can’t see less than 182cm for his peak. Possibly up to 183
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jan/22
🦌 It's surprising to think that he's old enough to have lost height. It's probably down to his physical occupation.

Well, I've checked his date of birth July '57 - and he'll have been 50 or 51 when the picture was taken. Bret is leaning in just a bit as well, but he doesn't seem the full 6ft at all. 🦌

Peak - 5ft11.75; Today - 5ft11.
UndertakerFrank said on 4/Nov/21
Dcipher there's no way Owen Hart was 5ft 10.5 unless wearing Boots with a Big Heal !!! Im 5ft 11.5 he he was a good amount shorter than me I hung out with Jim The Anvil hes was Shorter than me Jim was about 5ft 10 or alittle less
ChaosControl said on 5/Sep/21
If Owen was 5’10.5 he wouldn’t be billed 5’10 he’d be billed 6’0 or 6’1. Hate to break it to you but Owen was likely around 5’8.5-5’9
dcipher said on 3/Sep/21
"Undertaker Frank said on 29/Jun/21
I seen Owen in Hart in Street Clothes he was about 5ft 8 !! "

The BS gets slung around so much on the internet. UNREAL. I'm from western Canada - stood face to face with Owen for about an hour one night talking, and talked to him on another occasion too. Also met Bruce Hart, Makhan Singh...and so many others....Rip Rogers put me in an hammerlock one night. I stood next to Dynamite and Davey. I'm 5'10 and Owen was SLIGHTLY taller....about 5'10.5 I have no idea what to say about all the liars. It does seem like poeple on this site are obsessed with downgrading to make themselves feel better. It's not like these guys were giants, but 5'8? LOL...this person is either an absolute liar or very delusional.

PS. Davey Boy was slightly taller than me, Dynamite was slightly shorter.
frank burjan said on 30/Jun/21
Undertaker are correct. Spot on my thinking. Brett might have been peak 5'11. He may have been 1 inch taller than the anvil.
Undertaker Frank said on 29/Jun/21
I seen Owen in Hart in Street Clothes he was about 5ft 8 !! Also Seen the British Bulldog the same day & he was about 5 ft 9 I know some people will not believe that Jim The Anvil was about 5ft 10 or a hair shorter
Lava said on 31/May/21
180 cm. peak. 178 cm. now.
Undertaker Frank said on 17/May/21
He was listed @ 5ft 11 & also Nash said he was 5ft 11
JD100xx said on 21/Mar/21
Easily 6ft at his peak. I'm 5ft 9 and met him at an event and was definitely quite a bit taller than me
Sanjay singh said on 14/Feb/21
He looks solid 6foot in his prime
Big ed said on 27/Jan/21
Interesting to see him at survivor series 91 doing a promo with teammates piper bulldog and virgil bret looked like he was slightly taller than all although pipers at the back but good to see 4 guys in and around the same height bracket Davey boy looks shortest
wh said on 11/Jan/21
@dayshaen I promise you, Owen Hart was right around 5'10. See my other comment. I looked him right in the eye for a long conversation.
wh said on 11/Jan/21
I promise he's at LEAST 6 feet, as he looks at least 2 inches taller than Owen. I stood eye-to-eye with Owen Hart for about 30 min. back around 1988 in kelowna, BC. He in wrestling boots, and I in normal running shoes or court shoes. We were nearly dead even with him...a few mm. taller. I'm 5'10.
Dayshaen said on 22/Dec/20
Would be cool if you did Owen Hart sometimes he’s billed at 5’10 but every time he’s in the ring with Shawn he just looks 5’8 flat
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/20
Really as low as 5ft11 today, Rob?
Editor Rob
I do think by now he is near 5ft 11
Monkey knees said on 27/Jul/20
Peak - 5ft 11.75in.

Had 3/4 inch on Davey Smith / Bulldog.

Had over 2in on Owen, too.
Gobgghbfffcnkj said on 27/Jul/20
The book, written by a third party, makes this claim. I don’t personally believe Bret was ever 6’1
Gobgghbfffcnkj said on 25/Jul/20
@Joe I get your point but Bret didn’t write the book in question. It documents the history of pro wrestling and when it does talk about Bret, describes him as 6’1 230. Doesn’t mean I agree
Joe Exactly Average said on 24/Jul/20
Met him back in the day. Had pictures of Bret, my legit 6' father and me when I was maybe 11 in like 1995. Bret was a hair shorter than my father. And I don't lie about height, it's a pet peeve of mine because it's so easily disproven if a guy lies about his height. I'm exactly 5'10. My father is 5'11 now at 62 years old. 25 years ago they were almost identical. Bret was 6' peak height
Gobgghbfffcnkj said on 22/Jul/20
Hey Rob, can Owen Hart get a page? I think he was billed 5’10 and in some old wrestling matches of his I’ve seen he looks about that tall. Also a book I’m reading says Bret is a legit 6’1 230
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/20
🎂💪🎈🎊 Happy Birthday Bret! 🎊🎈💪🎂

A Very Happy Birthday to Bret Hart, who is today celebrating his 63rd Birthday.

I wonder if he still has his long hair? 😃
Peak height - 6ft
Today 5ft11

Ryan McDaniel said on 11/Apr/20
In prime guy was like 6'2 with his boots on.

Peak 6ft spot on I'd say a shade under 5'11 now

Bret looks like a rock star with that hair! 🎵🎶🎸

Peak - 6ft
Now - 5ft11 💪😁
Undertaker Frank said on 13/Jan/20
I seen 5ft 11 listings for Bret 20 years ago so i doubt he was ever 6ft barefoot
TheBat said on 15/Dec/19
Bret's around 5'11" today. I could definitely see him at 6'0" back in his prime.
RP said on 10/Dec/19
Matt C
Russell Wilson was actual measured 5’10 5/8” @ The NFL Combine.
Roderick said on 27/Nov/19
Bret Hart might still be a fraction over 5'11", but likely not 6'0".
Bada Bone said on 29/Oct/19
5'11 3/4 during the day, 6 foot flat first thing the morning sounds about right.
The picture of him standing next to Russel Wilson proves his height. Wilson was 5'10 5/8 at the combine, and 5'11 flat at UW Madison Pro Day. Brett looks at least an inch taller so I'm ok with 6'0 foot listing.

Click Here
Matt C said on 29/Oct/19
Bret with a 6'2 Roman Reigns. Roman is in his gear which means he's wearing the giant combat boots so he's going to have the footwear advantage. No way he has Bret by 4 inches. Click Here
Roderick said on 23/Oct/19
Sotiris, with the evidence you provided, he looks like he can still pull 5'11". Easily taller than Dana White
Matt C said on 17/Oct/19
The pic on the right is Bret with Russell Wilson of the Seahawks. Russell was measured at the NFL combine at 5' 10 1/4 so we know his legit height. Bret is standing closer to the camera but despite that you can see Bret has him by atleast an inch.

Mikey97 said on 14/Oct/19

He was standing normally and he looked much shorter than billed 6'1" Darren Young, like MUCH shorter. People who still insist this guy is or was EVER 6'0".... ridiculous.
Roderick said on 7/Oct/19
@Mikey That's surprising. Was Bret standing well? I can't see him as low as 5'9". He looks at least 5'11" with Rob, more like 5'11.5".
Mikey97 said on 6/Oct/19
In 2016 I met Bret Hart at a wrestling show far from my house and I thought he was only like 5'9" honestly. I was very surprised to see how short he was in person.

I'm 5'6" (maybe 5'5.5" at the time) and there is NO WAY he was more than 3 inches taller than me.
Nik Ashton said on 29/Sep/19
He can pull it off with some aplomb!
Dan Trojan said on 28/Sep/19
Regardless of the downgrade i'm still sticking to what i said that bret hart was over 5'11" in 2016 i'm not calling rob a liar it's possible he could've lost a half inch since then but i swear there's no way he's onñy 5'10"
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Sep/19
Good to see that Editor Rob pulled the metaphorical trigger (befitting smoking-gun pics), delivering a reasonable and requisite downgrade for The Hitman. I fear for other wrestlers who might suffer the wrath of Rob's diligent downgrading...


Feel free to give us some clues as to any potential future victims...

It is a large site with a lot of maintenance.

Cody Rhodes is 100% not 6'0.75".
Roderick said on 14/Sep/19
Dude.... Bret Hart looks 5'8" at best in those pics. Maybe Sotiris is right and 5'10" is the most he could be today. We can't just ignore evidence and pretend it doesn't exist.

Bret Hart is 100% max 5'10" now and was NEVER 6'0". Let me guess, Editor Rob STILL won't downgrade him, lol... Don't worry, fanboys, Bret Hart can still be whatever height you wish him to be, all it takes is a vivid imagination and a detachment from reality.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Sep/19
And Cody (as Stardust) looked around 5'11.5" next to 6'3" Titus O'neil. Click Here
Sotiris Gravas said on 12/Sep/19
Poster Joeyb33 (claims 6'2.25") w/ Cody Rhodes... Click Here Joey said they were both in boots and that Cody looked under 6'0", definitely not Editor Rob's listing of 6'0.75.

Now, here's Bret Hart w/ Cody ... Click Here This was from 2010, only 2 years after Editor Rob's photo, wherein Bret had a 1/3 inch thicker shoe.

Somebody forgot to remind Bret to wear his lifts.

So, 6'0" for Bret Hart...? That would be a resounding not a chance in hell.

He's MAX 5'10" today; peak height of 5'11".

And no, I'm not wrong. I'm never wrong -- about anything. Ever. Kidding :)

Just a reminder, a 6 feet tall man should NOT look this short next to Ted Cruz, who might be as low as 5'9.5"... Click Here

@Editor Rob The fact that you still refuse to downgrade him is baffling to me... especially given that he was NEVER 6'0".

5'10.75"-5'11" today. 6'0" peak

Easy 6’0” peak, nowadays looks to be 5’11.5”

Kinda crazy that he's 62 now
Monkey knees said on 12/Aug/19
6ft peak. Clearly had an inch on 5ft 11in Davey Smith. Hasn't lost much at all. One of the honest wrestlers...
Roderick said on 8/Aug/19
Is it true that he was billed at 5'11" once? I can only recall 6'1" and he is currently listed at 6'0" by Google.
Andre Dector said on 2/Aug/19
impossible for him to be taller than 5 11 nowadays, he looks near shawn michaels height
Roderick said on 12/Jul/19
I can't see Bret being 5'11" peak only... I can understand that estimate today but not during his peak. Maybe 6'0" peak and 5'11.25" now.
Sotiris Gravas said on 11/Jul/19
Here's our good friend, Bret, w/ little 5'6" Regis Philbin (1996) Click Here

No way in hell he was ever more than 5'11", and is currently 5'10", tops. And no, I'm not wrong. When he does look taller, it's thanks to footwear.
Roderick said on 5/Jul/19
I can buy 6'0" for Bret but nowadays only in shoes.

@Sotiris Gravas The picture of Kane and Vince Vaughn serves no height justice. The ground could be uneven and Vaughn looks like he is on his tippy toes too. Kane is leaning backwards as well. Those are 3 factors that excludes that photo from any argument regarding Kanes' height. As someone who has been height obsessed since the day I was born, I've learned that not every body can go by pictures when judging height. You have to meet some people. For example, someone like the Great Khali has problems with his legs that make it so he can't really stand straight and tall in pictures with fans and other celebs which make him appear shorter. I met Khali and he was definitely 7'0" but not taller. I'm just using an example. You look at a lot of people from what I've noticed and you usually estimate them at the lower side of the scale, if that makes sense. Pay more attention to posture and head tilt in photos, because I observed that it definitely throws you off into thinking than people, such as Kane, are shorter than they really are. Don't you find it interesting that everybody who met Kane during his full time run estimated him at around 6'7"-6-8"? I wonder why nobody slipped up and said 6'5".. Maybe because he just simply isn't that short. No 6'5" man will ever get billed at 7'0" anyway, that's ridiculous.
Dan Trojan said on 30/May/19
He is at least 5'11" i'm leaning more towards 5'11.5" like i said before i met him i'm 5'6" and he was more than 4 inches taller than me i know what 5'10" looks like and he was most certainly taller than that tell me i'm lying go ahead i know what i saw

Either your son isn't really 6'1", or you just don't know what you're talking about, generally speaking. As for your "EVERYONE" and "MUST"... LOL, dude.

So, no, Kane is not an easy 6'7", which I've already proven, time and again.

P.S. You had me at hello... Click Here
iconjj said on 26/May/19
Sotiris you had me until you start this junk that EVERYONE that ever looked taller than you think they should be MUST be wearing lifts. My son is 6'1 and I have a pic of him with Kane, who actually did wear lifts in the ring but both are at a rally NO LIFTS and Kane is still an easy 6'7.
Sotiris Gravas said on 26/May/19
@Mighty Convenient? Désolé, c'est pas arrangé avec le gars des vues. I never said I believed Taker was as low as 6'5", nor did I ever say Big Show was max 6'8". Pay attention. While you do that, I'll start paying less and less attention to your posts. For obvious reasons. Peut-être t'as les deux yeux dans le même trou, mon gars. Newsflash: I have a popular Greek name. It's not a conspiracy. I'm guessing when you meet ppl w/ the same name you start getting very paranoid. I'll try not to lose sleep over the fact that I've seemingly lost credibility w/ you, lol.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 21/May/19
@Sotiris Gravas

A poster (who happens to have the same first name as you, how convenient) supposedly said that his dad said that Big Show was 6'8 and Taker 6'5...
Yeah sure buddy... what a reliable source...
In french we have a saying perfectly fitting for that saying " The man who saw the man who saw the man who saw the bear " meaning the bear is actually in fact, never seen.

Sorry but you just lost any credibility ( if you ever had any to begin with ), way too many people met those two to refute such low claims.
6'5 prime taker is ridiculous at best, and 6'8 Big Show just beyond ludicrous. ( especially in his early career where he looked taller than 7ft when he was "lighter" around 375-380lbs, was billed at 7'1 by Wichita State btw )
Ironman092289 said on 15/May/19
He does look really short in some pictures, sometimes even 5'9", but he always has his head tilted in those pics. I think when standing as straight as he could, he is 6'0. Just look at some pictures with him and Shawn Michaels, you'll know.
Terry said on 13/May/19
This is bang on. He was easily 6ft in his WWF days, his legs are quite long. May have lost maybe an inch now?

Ben Bell said on 7/May/19
I’m not a joke, I’m just somebody who would like to know the actual heights if these guys.
For some reason you want to make everyone smaller than they are and you seem slightly obsessed with it.
I’d go with Rob (who’s met Bret) on this. And guess what I’ve met Bret too.
Perhaps you should attend a convention and meet some of these guys. It may open your eyes.
For the taller guys 6’6 Ali Baba is a great gauge.
Editor Rob
Bret with loose posture I am certain nowadays could look 5ft 10.5-11 range in person, he might have lost some height from 6ft peak of course, but a full inch?

Interestingly, Savio Vega who was also there was billed as 5'11", but he looked really short, like 5'9". The thing is, I saw them early in the morning (I think) so I was closer to 6'7.5", making them look even shorter.

Supposedly, fellow poster Danimal met Bret Hart in 2001 and says that he was only 5'10"... and says that having met Owen, he was only 5'9". Make of that what you will.

Hey, guys... Ben Bell only wants us to post full-length pics where we can see footwear... Maybe try following your own sage advice, brainiac. It's not hard. You're a joke, dude.

Solid 6'0 peak, maybe 5'11.5" now.

6'0 peak. 5'11.25/5'11.5 today. Rarely stands tall.
Ben Bell said on 3/May/19
@Sotoris I’ve met Bret twice, I’d say a strong 5’11.
Perhaps post some full length pics where we can see footwear and get real perspective instead of just shoulders up. It’s not hard.
Sotiris Gravas said on 3/May/19
@Ben Bell What I don't appreciate is guys like you and your ilk trolling me as if you know me. So, you've met ppl in person. So have I. So what? Chuck Wepner fought Andre the Giant and insisted he was only 6'9". Chet Coppock (R.I.P.) who was maybe 6'5" and claimed 6'6" stood beside Andre and said he was only 3" taller than him. Both these guys said 6'9", yet Editor Rob and everyone and their mother insist he was at least 7'0" peak height. Another poster, Sotirios Chatzi, said that his dad worked in the wrestling industry and maintained the belief that Big Show was only 6'8" and Undertaker was only 6'5" w/o lifts. Ppl get height wrong all the time. You meet someone for all of 30 seconds for a photo and what, that supposedly qualifies you as a height expert? Get over yourself, pal. Rob meets ppl and posts the pics here. Is there a universal consensus as to gauging height as a result...? Of course not. There's always someone w/ a footwear advantage or better posture to throw things off. Not to mention bad camera angles and height loss throughout the day.

I post photos that I find. If there's a photo of someone looking taller, I'll post it, I don't suppress it like I have some kind of sinister agenda. I will suppress my anger, though, and refrain from telling you what I really think of guys w/ a prissy little attitude who call me out.

What I'm glad about is that there are ppl like me to put obnoxious ppl like you in their place. Perhaps the rarefied air you breathe in from your lofty ivory tower resulting in cerebral hypoxia is to blame. Either way, it's time to come down a peg or two. Maybe four. I don't suffer fools gladly, especially would-be trolls who hide behind a thin veneer of probity.

I trust we've come to an understanding, then, Ben.
Canson said on 1/May/19
Sotiris doesn’t downgrade every celeb. But if we are going to get on his case then it’s only fair to jump on the ones who obviously upgrade everyone
Ben Bell said on 30/Apr/19
You just search out photos of people looking short and you downgrade everyone even though you’ve never met any of them.
Personally me this site is about the truth not just trolling, I’m interested in how tall these people actually are and I have to say Rob is incredibly accurate with his listings. Everyone he’s met that I’ve also met I’d agree with to within 0.5”.
This week standing right next to Bret I’d say 5’11.5. 6ft if he stood straight.
Most wrestlers have truly abysmal posture so often look shorter. Also broad shoulders and wide physiques don’t do anyone any favours when it comes to looking tall.
I’m glad this site has other posters who are informative and who take the time to post balanced pictures.

The Bret Stone Cold face off's always got me. I took it that bret was 6'0. Austin must be or have been 6'1 max. Maybe his 6'2 was optomistic, he certainly never looked quite that tall in the WWF.

Sotiris Gravas said on 27/Jan/19
Funny how both Rick Martel and Steve Keirn were billed as 6'0", just like Bret Hart, and yet they were around 5'10" peak height.

I met Martel at wrestleslam in 07 and I was shocked he was at lowest 5'11. Nearer 6ft. I expected him to be shorter.
Same day I met the mountie and Tito Santana who were both 6ft.
Not everyone was taller than expected. Piper 5'9, Anvil 5'11, Valentine 5'11.
I'm never sure about Hennig. I know he's known fror standing on his tip toes. Perhaps 6'2 peak barefoot, Martel maybe never shrunk and has always been mid 5'11. Giving Hennig 2.5"+ tip toes or thicker soles.... Who knows, I never met Hennig.
I met Bret and id say 5'11 1/2 to 6'0.

I don't believe Stone Cold's much under 6'0" either, if not, at all. But at the same time, I highly doubt his 6'1.5" claim to be accurate. He might've measured near it but it was most likely in shoes.
Dan Trojan said on 22/Feb/19
As much as i might disagree with rawdshaq because he constantly changes his mind i have to agree with him on stone cold i truly don't believe he's under 6'0"

Stone Cold isn't under 6 feet lmao dude, he mentioned he got measured at 6'1 1/2". Bret Hart is 5'11" at the lowest
Dan Trojan said on 18/Feb/19
All i'm saying is he looked 6'0" or at the very least 5'11.5 i have a brother that's that tall i know he is because i measured him myself and him and bret are defenitely similar in height i swear it i can tell the difference between 5'10" and 6'0" i'll go with 5'11.5 but no lower than that

I'll say it as many times as I have to. Luger was shorter than me. I was just over 6'3" at the time. No way in hell he was the full 6'3" let alone a strong 6'3". If you pay attention though. Luger did wear some pretty thick soled boots from the mid 90's on.
FrankR1 said on 2/Aug/18
From the late 1980s to the early 1990s, Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine repeatedly listed Bret Hart’s height as 5’11”. While WWF trading cards, and Nintendo games listed his height as 6’0”. Around 1994, the WWF began listing Bret Hart as 6’1”, which was incorrect. Bret’s peak height was probably no more than 5’11.5” (182cm). Today, he’s close to 5’10.5”.

5 '10 at the most, my wife is 5 '6 and was in 2 inch heals when she stood next to him. They were shoulder level, Bret surprisingly has a unusually long neck to compensate for this hense why he always does that weird pose to hide it like in this photo here with Rob.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 22/May/18
I would estimate that he’d measure closer to 5’11” nowadays, and he was likely near 6’0” in his peak (like 5’11 3/4” maybe). He’d likely measure the same as Christian Bale or 50 Cent.

@Shivam - I think Yokozuna was about 6ft 2 and you have to realize he is one of the few wrestlers who used to wrestle with barefoot along with Kamala-6'5, Samu-6'3?? and Umaga-6'2?. and Lex Luger must be at least 6 ft 3.5 if not 6 5 or 4. And because of Footwear Advantage he looks nearly 3 inches taller (probably 2.5 inches) than 6 2 Yokozuna.I hope u understood. (Velangichaa?)

Luger wasn't the full 6'3". My guess, based on being a foot away from him in the late 80's, is that he was at best 6'2 3/4". He may have even only been 6'2 1/2". I was 6'3 1/4" at the time, and for sure taller.

I hate how no one remembers Survivor Series 1996 when Bret had that staredown with Austin (before his injuries) and was pretty much in his ballpark. Both were in ring gear/boots and neither was known for the whole lifts thing

Bret is definitely (or at least was) all of 6'

I guess since Dan Chernau was at his peak height of 5'11.5" when he shook Brett's hand, he must have just gotten out of bed from his trailer. It couldn't have been more than a few minutes after Dan was out of bed since by that time, he'd be no taller than 5'10" flat, dipping into the 177s.

Hart looked a good few inches shorter than Austin. I'd say maybe 5'11", but that's even if Austin really is 6'2", which is a little suspicious considering The Rock is 6'2" (billed at 6'5") and Steve looked about 2-3 inches shorter.
Samir Yusuf said on 7/Feb/18
First thing first. I don't want to be political on here, this is not a place for that. Bret Hart is 5'10, now. I don't know his prime but judging from old pictures probably 5'11. Second, you know how many years I hear The United States is the greatest country in the world! Every where from every American. So your saying it's okay for America to say that? But not other countries just as great? You know how overwhelming powerful that Iran would be if it was the size of the U.S? It's already incredibly strong. It would make America look like a 747 powered by double A batteries. So yes, I love my country and it's people and history. So I say again best country in the world.

He wore cowboy boots in a segment with McMahon and the Nasty Boys. McMahon still edged out Bret despite Bret being in 2 inch heels


I've seen that segment several times, and if anything, Bret was slightly taller than Vince. Bret's heels were pretty modest as far as cowboy boots go. Maybe 1.5" tops that he was getting. Vince was in big basketball sneakers, so I'm sure he was getting at least 1" from those. I'll even post the clip again and point out the best times to compare them.

Click Here

Look at 22 sec, 26 sec, 49 sec, 2:02, 2:16, 2:39

At every one of those points, Bret is either the same height or taller than Vince. Do not be fooled by Vince's poofy hair. Also, Bret has a bigger head and lower shoulder level, which gives the illusion on McMahon being taller. But, both men were about 6'. Bret still looks about 6' next to Rob if he stood to his full height.

Austin is jutting his head forward. Austin had a habit of dropping his head to meet eye level with whomever he spoke to. Austin is clearly an inch taller.

Austin can even look close to Mike Tyson's height just because he's dropping his head forward to meet eye to eye rather than stand tall.

Re: HeightcrazyRed6ft

Rob said (on HBK's page) that if the top of one's head reaches the brow region, then that's more like a 4 inch difference. That would put Owen Hart at a solid 5'8" assuming Bret is 6 feet even. It's possible Owen is taller than Rob, but I think the difference would be so little that it would be hard to tell. I'd put Owen at 5'8"-5'8.5" but not 5'9". Owen looks too small to be 5'9 in my eyes. Max I'd give Owen on a good day would be 174.5 cm.

A lot of people have commented that Bret is or was even at this peak, 'small', that Hogan didnt even want to drop the belt to him because he was so small. Others commented he didnt even look like a man in the ring. Yes by wrestling standards 6feet may be seen as relatively small but still not so small for so many people to call him out on it. Watch the burial of the hitman on youtube...

I used to work at a gym in Florida and Exotic Adrian Street and his wife Miss Linda worked out there, and Adrian SWORE to me that Bret was 5'8" and wore lifts. I didn't believe him until I met Jim Neidhart at a strip club one night after Nitro. Neidart stood straight up, face to face with me and was the exact same height as me, and I'm 5'9". I looked at many pictures of The Hart Foundation after that and saw that Bret and Jim were usually always the same height, but sometimes Bret was a hair taller and sometimes a hair shorter. I also met Ric Flair once and I'd have to guess Ric at about the 5'10.5 mark in 1997 and when Bret and Ric feuded for a few months, they would get face to face in the ring and Bret's height fluctuated tremendously between their meetings. One time Bret was like an inch shorter than Ric, the next time he was the same height as Ric, and the last time Bret was taller than Ric. So I'm not sure how tall he really is, because Adrian Street told me Bret wears lifts in his tennis shoes/trainers as well. So who knows?

I still believe Bret was under 6'0. This photo with Rob, Bret is 5'11. He was listed at 5'11 early on in his career and only taller when in the Hart Foundation in the mid 80s. Rob, I think that's the smoking gun. Not only your photo, but that Bret Hart was listed at 5'11 before he became famous.
FrankR1 said on 8/Aug/16
Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine listed Bret Hart at 5'11" for well over a decade. I think he was probably between 5'11" and 6'0", but certainly NOT the 6'1" billed height that many WWE publications and video game manuals listed him at in the mid-1990s.
heightchecker34 said on 20/Jul/16
Yes Bret Hart is the quintessential 6 ft man. He never looked over nor under. He and Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart were always the same height. He always looked shorter than Shawn Michaels, because Michaels always wore lifts in their encounters. He was taller than 5'11 Davey Boy Smith and easily had 3 inches on Owen Hart. Today, he might have just lost a quarter inch so no less than 5'11.75''.

You know I think Bret would be the same height as dmeyer. Strong 181cm guy for sure but not more than 182cm. Nearish 6ft but not quite. Always thought Bret edged out Michaels as well. Austin doesn't look more than 183cm today, but I'd give him 184cm in his prime for sure.

Y2A, pretty good pictures. You look 5'11 there. HBK I don't have more than 5'10 today and Bret Hart was 6'0 tops during his peak. No more than 5'11 today. You met Trish Stratus my old time favorite diva! I always wanted to meet her and never got to!
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Aug/15
Austin was more 6'0.5 peak putting Bret Hart no taller than 5'11.5 peak IMO. Austin had an easy inch on both Hart and HBK.
Sam said on 3/Aug/15
181cm-182cm in the photo with Rob. I can then speculate that Y2A looks about 179cm in his photo with Bret, but like he says has a footwear disadvantage so could be more 180cm. Nice pictures btw. Bret was possibly a 6 footer in his prime but not much more. 1cm loss is plausible.
Andrea said on 27/Jun/15
Y2A, will you finally meet Rob at the Con? If yes, you can finally demonstrate we were all wrong and that you're actually close to 6'! ;)
Height183 said on 27/Jun/15
@Y2A: Cool pictures man. I know you and me have had some disagreements before, but I hope you didn't take any of that seriously. It's always good to see new pictures of fans and wrestlers on here.
miko said on 26/Jun/15
Legit 6 footer in his prime. Wasn't that much shorter than 6'1 Austin.

Today he could have lost a little bit, but still looks over 5'11.

From Survivor Series 1996. Skip to the 6:00 mark where Bret and Austin stand face to face. If it's agreed upon that Austin was 6'1" in his prime, than Bret was certainly 6'-6'0.5".
Attitude said on 26/Dec/14
I don't think he was ever above 6'0. I always think he was hovering around 5'11.75 in his prime. He's been billed at 5'11 before.

I met Bret this week on his UK tour, I'm 6.025 and I'd say Bret was slightly shorter. A strong 5'11. At peak height I bet he was a sold 6ft. Maybe 6.05

Any pics? :)
Duberry said on 23/Dec/14
I guess Owen was only 5'9 ish judging by the photo on Bret's shirt.

He was probably 238lbs in the 80s-90s.

Here is a photo of Bruno Sammartino and Bret Hart

Click Here

Bruno was supposedly around 5'10" or so in his prime. He is 79 years old now, so he may have lost a little bit of height. But he still appears to be near the 5'10" mark.

Bret has his head tilted but he is standing in front of Bruno and he is thus closer to the camera.

In my opinion, Bret was probably around 6' tall at his peak but today he seems to be between 5'11"-5'11.5"
Raphael said on 16/Sep/14
He dont looks 6'0
Oanh said on 1/Sep/14
Ok, Bret is tilting his head and probably loses 1" because of that but he does have about 1/3" thicker shoe. I'd say he is 5'11.5" max today...6'0 peak.
Alex 6'0 said on 5/Aug/14
Attitude, I def agree Bret looking 5'11-5'11.25 with Rob. Peak 5'11.75-6'0 is possible. HBK was always at least an inch shorter. Austin is another guy who today looks a bit shorter. 6'0.5 peak and today 6'0 flat I give Austin.
Attitude said on 4/Aug/14
Bret is definitely in the 5'11" range today. I speculate even in his prime he was slightly under 6'0" flat. He doesn't look to have lost much height if at all.

With that said, I think we can use Bret as a measuring stick. HBK was slightly smaller, so we can see 5'10"-5'11" easy, and Austin, whom I don't think is 6'1" but more of a 6'0.5".
Alex 6'0 said on 4/Aug/14
Attitude, good comparison pics you made. My head is slightly titled up in those though. Had others with Rob where my head was more straight but still would be very close. Me and Rob's pics show how a 4 inch gap should look. Bret has more 3 inches on Rob.
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Jul/14
6'0 peak possible. Looks 5'11 with Rob
James said on 14/Jul/14
He's a legit 6'0" with shoes on depending on how thick the soles are 5'11 barefoot
Attitude said on 6/Jul/14
I would say 182 cm. Here are these images that prove such (not mine, but I found them)

In this first image, Rob's head is tilted and Bret's is fixed:

and to compare to Alex 6 feet, Bret is under. I do agree with Kevin Nash's sentiments that Bret is 5'11 (more like 5'11.5 or 5'11.75)

Rob, is 182 possible for today?
Editor Rob
yes it's quite possible
person said on 25/Apr/14
Yep spot on!
Attitude said on 14/Apr/14
Bret Hart I'm guessing is probably a legitimate 5'11. I'd place Owen at 5'8 maybe a weak 5'9" (or 5'9" in boots). The thing is, the Hart's didn't wear thick soled boots (unlike HBK or Jericho). However, Bret has bad posture and always has. So it is possible he could be 6 feet. I would put him at 5'11.5", the Anvil at 5'10" as well as the Bulldog, Owen at 5'8.5", Pillman at 5'10" or 5'11", and for comparison, HBK at 5'10.5" barefoot (he was called "too short" along with Marty Jannette by Anvil and Bret in an RF shoot you can find on the Internet), and Steve Austin at 6'1". In confrontations with Bret and Austin, Austin always hunches a bit to get in the face of wrestlers.

Now that I mentioned that, when Austin got in the face of HBK without his boots on and was wearing some type of dress shoe weeks before WM 14, he towered over HBK and had his whole head over Shawn, like a 3 inch difference. Anyways, Bret always held his own to Austin and never looked too short, just a slight difference.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 9/Apr/14
No way am I seeing 6'0 in this picture. Even without the lean he still had a slight footwear advantage. 5'11 is my guess
Shawn said on 25/Feb/14
Legend, find me a youtube clip from any era where Shawn was ever taller than Bret (without having a footwear advantage)... you won't, because he never was.
sigge said on 10/Feb/14
5'10.5 is too low. Looks more like 5'11.5 to me.
Legend said on 25/Dec/13
Bret is 5'10.5, he has a huge angle advantage in the pic with rob. Shawn Michaels was taller than Bret

If you only see .5" between them in the pic you posted, I think you may be losing your marbles.

How tall was Yokozuna? Hart had around 1.5' on him.

Easy 6'0 in his prime, and close to it today in good posture.
CLEMENT said on 1/Oct/13
The Legendary Bret "The Hitman " Hart is 5'11".
john b said on 6/Sep/13
Rob we should give Bret just 5'11 and a half take those shoes off or boots that he is wearing his 5'11. But here is a very real list of wrestlers heights.
Kane 6'6'' 1/2 - Undertaker 6'6 - Big Show 6'11 - Kurt Angle 5'9'' - Brock Lesnar 6'2'' - Hulk Hogan is 6'4 when stood up right - Cena 6 foot - punk 5'11 - HHH 6'1 1/2 - Nash 6'8 - Sting 6'1 - Daniel Bryan 5'8 -
Drackvan said on 28/May/13
I just went to the WWE show in Calgary on May 27, 2013. My seats were the first level off of the floor, granting me a awesome view of the ring and the wrestlers. I was Bret Hart appreciation night and Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon both joined Bret in the ring. Bret was not standing super straight and was also wearing runners and he was taller than both Michaels, who was wearing some sort of work boots and McMahon who was wearing dress shoes. Whatever height Bret is, Michaels and McMahon were both an inch or more shorter. If Bret is 6'0" then they are both 5'10" or maybe a weak 5'11".

Bulldog at 5'9 is equal with a 6'2 peak hogan... since he had(with cowboy boots) only tops 6 inches on bulldog in mid 80's.

bulldog was more like 5'11
dicksock said on 14/Apr/13
Bret is the same height as 5'11.5" CM Punk at age 55. I'm sure 30 years ago he was at least .5" taller. As for bulldog, he looked about 5'10".
Bouncher said on 21/Mar/13
There should definitely be a peak height and a today height for Bret, cause I'm sure it's not the same anymore.
Sean said on 20/Mar/13
Looks about 5'11 or so now. He might have been 6'0" peak.
Bleak said on 13/Mar/13
I can't give Bret 6'0 at any point in his career. Absolutely no more than 5'11" max. In his title match vs. Davey Boy Smith, the two stood nose-to-nose in the center of the ring. DBS was listed at 5'10" but it was widely acknowledged he was no more than 5'9", (stated in an ESPN article after his death). Bret was barely taller than him. [IMG]Click Here[/IMG]
Peyman-6ft said on 27/Jan/13
he's a real 6footer , A good inch taller than HBK
so that makes him 5'11'' at peak & maybe a bit shorter nowadays

It's a Polaroid from may 94 when he did his UK tour, He looks about 5'8 n the photo as he's leaning on me but when he stood straight I would have said no less than 5'10.. A complete monster he was as well, Great with fans.

Nice pic Vegas, what do you think about Bulldogs height?
I think he was 5´10.5" but sometimes he looks 5´11"

I've met all those guys, Got photo's with Davey and Piper, In 94 Davey looked 5'10-5'11 to me, Virgil looked 6ft in 2009, Piper on the same day looked 5'9. Bret 5'11-6ft in 94.

Great pic Vegas, Late 91.
The Exorcist said on 19/Dec/12
Looks 3" taller than Rob but he's tilting his head. He could certainly look 6'0" if he stood up straight.

Trent said on 4/Dec/12
Yeah, he doesn't look quite as big as 238 there. That's probably what he gets up to for wrestling. Wrestlers do have a lot of muscle, and even though they are often fat as well, they are usually in good shape.
James said on 2/Nov/12
Could be 182cm these days?

Jesus, 238 lbs is exceedingly heavy for a 6ft0 (183 cm) guy.
Keep in mind that pro wrestlers are about 25% heavier than the average person, but he's probably lighter these days.

6' seems right for the Hitman.
Ian from Auckland said on 20/Oct/12
I am approximately the same height and build as Bret Hart (in this photo) and I weigh 91kg (200lb). My guess is that by the time this photo was taken he weighed no more than 210lb, 215 at the very most.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/12
Looked slightly taller than HBK during their match at Wrestlemania. Not over 181cm next to Rob. However looks an easy 6ft0.5(184cm) next to Mamun. Bret edges out Yokozuna during the staredown by roughly 1in making him about 6ft1.5(187cm) in those boots.

In his prime, he was no shorter than 6ft. I don't know about today though.
MBH said on 16/Sep/12
He was taller than CM Punk, so if the is between 1.82-83 that would make punk 5'11 tops!
