I think this guy would edge out JBL...

A solid 6'5 guy.

Their was a staredown between Hogan and Adams in either 1996/1997 in the NWO period, and they looked very close, near identical, although if anybody had the edge it was Adams, Hulk was likely a fraction shy of 6'5 by this point though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/23
Rob, could 6ft5½ be argued?

Appears to edge Scott Hall, taller than Hogan (by then probably had lost a little) and stacking up well beside Paul Wight. I'd dare say he pulls off 6ft6 zone in those photos.

Absolutely nothing under 6ft5
Editor Rob
Strong 6ft 5 maybe.

I was watching a segment the other night with Hogan and Brian Adams in the ring - Adams had about an inch maybe an inch and a quarter on Hogan.. Hogan in boots was probably around 6'4.5 at that time. That Puts Crush in and around 6'5.5 maybe 6'5.75 (in boots).. Clark always had a about half an inch on Adams.

Without boots - Brian Adams - 6'5.5
Brian Clark - Weak 6'6.

If you go back to 94, Crush and Undertaker had a staredown and Undertaker only had about an inch on him. I think Taker was 6'6.75, if Sid claims 6'6.25.. Putting Kane around 6'7.25.
Ben Bell said on 22/Sep/22
I asked Bryan Clark on twitter how tall he was an also mentioned Sid.
He replied that he's 6'6 and Sid was definitely 1" taller than him. He said he'd say 6'7 for Sid.
In 96 Clarke wrestled for Hammerlock in the UK, I had friends with company who all said he was 6'6+.

That being said I think I'd go a strong 6'5 peak. Incredibly nice guy in person.

As for Crush, 6'5 for me. I remember Meltzer listing him as 6'4 in the observer in the early 90's but Meltzer was often wrong.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover 6'8 was his billed height when he started his Crush face run ( with cranium crunch finisher and guitar riffs entrance )..
Which makes sense as with most tall guy you take away 2 inches and there you are.

Imo prime Crush was 6'6 or at least 6'5.5" at least a good inch taller than Hall.

He was billed either 6'8 or 6'7 ( a bit later )
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/22
A 6ft8 billing by WWE for this guy wouldn't shock me. Pretty sure they had Hogan up to 6ft11 (at least 6ft9 anyway) to legitimize Andre at 7ft4-5 zone!

Some of the vets to this day still maintain Andre being that tall....oh but Hogan's downplayed the hype...he maintains Andre's true stature was "around 7ft2-3"
SeanR said on 4/Aug/22
Bryan Clarke would be a good listing for the future.

Here he is with approx 6’9” Kevin Nash in WCW: Click Here
With 6’1” range Bam Bam Bigelow in WWE: Click Here
With Brian Adams: Click Here

Clarke looks 6’5” or maybe 6’5 1/4”
Becheese said on 2/Aug/22
I remember the first time crush hit the wwf and one of the commentators said he’s huge around 6-8. Which is standard wwf height inflation. Batista got billed at 6-7 in the first run at wwf.
Canson said on 7/Jun/22
@Rampage: yea at that stage he’d be 6’6 1/8” if the 6’5.5 is his lunchtime and 6’5 3/8”. Those are similar to Christian’s stats
ChristianAnthonyPerkins said on 6/Jun/22
@Mike Voorhees
I've always remembered Jake Roberts having a 6'6" bill though. Are you sure he was ever billed 6'8"?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/22
Yeah Canson, those look believable. Like Hozier and Stern, I can also see a case for Adams topping out at 6ft5½ which means out of bed I'd likely clear 6ft6
Canson said on 27/Mar/22
@Rampage: yea peak height in my opinion (similar to my estimate for Stern)

6’6 out of bed
6’5 5/8 after 1 hour
6’5.5 after 2-3
6’5 3/8 lunchtime
6’5.25” afternoon/evening

I’m not sure he was as low as 6’5 either except at extreme low
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Feb/22
Similar to Howard Stern and Hozier, 196-196.5cm zone (out of bed at least 198cm)

I'm pretty sure all legit 6ft5 guys in wrestling have been bumped to at least 6ft7 by WWE. Hogan I still rate as 6ft6 guy in his prime Almost certain I remember years ago reading something absurd like 6ft11! Probably to legitimize Andre The Giant at 7ft5!
Mike voorhees said on 23/Feb/22
Basically all the 6-5 guys ( Hogan,Hall,Roberts etc etc in wwf had a 6-8 billing.
Canson said on 27/Dec/21
@62B: I think that’s a great estimate and more along the lines of what I was thinking. Prob a 6’5.5 guy a couple hours out of bed and a strong 6’5 at a low
62B said on 26/Dec/21
Canson, Adams as Crush was one of the wrestlers, I saw back in the 90's at the gym. I put him over 6'5" but not 6'6" as I felt he had me by a little more than two inches. I was 6'3 1/4" at the time. It was morning when I saw him, but I he was taller than be by enough that I don't think he would have been under 6'5" even at his low. I think 6'5 1/4" would be good afternoon guess
Canson said on 18/Dec/21
@Joseph Murray: that was his billed height

@Rampage: I’d say at least a legit 6’5” guy afternoon height as he looks the definition of it. Could be over as I actually saw 6’5.5 being possible at one point
Joseph Murphy said on 14/Dec/21
Brian Adams was measured at 6'6" for boxing
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/21
juggernaut, I'd probably rate Adams as the stronger 6ft5
juggernaut said on 12/Aug/21
He looked taller than Razor ramon in this match, He might've been a little over 6'5', not sure..

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/21
Strong 6ft5 rather than weak
Soda machine said on 21/Jan/21
Billed @ 6-8 crush. Was the standard bill on 6-5 guys in wwf.
Ben Bell said on 16/Jan/21
I think a bit over 6’5.
Similar to Hall.
He never looked his billed height and he was always hard to guard with his chunky legs.
I loved Crush, loved him in Demolition, 92 Kona crush was second only behind Warrior.
Even Evil crush was cool.
As soon as they made him a prison biker he was dull.
Big resurgence in WCW for me. Loved him and Clarke in Kronik.

Clarke was a very similar 6’5. Clarke had the better physique.
Both monstrous.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/21
Rob, I'd have gone with a bit over 6ft5 rather than under for Brian
Kan said on 14/Nov/20
Is possible a 6ft5.25 list for crush ?

Seems a big 6ft5 guy
Editor Rob
in that match you'd say Brian was the more solid 6ft 5, however with Eudy he never seemed over 6ft 5.
Hotpots said on 29/Aug/20
WWF billed are same as Hogan 6-8 lol. 6-5 like Hogan basically imo
SeanR said on 12/Aug/20
The pic with Sid looks like Adams is near 2 inches shorter. I can see 6’4.5” by this time.

Adams was taller than Hogan during the NWO run so it’s really hard to nail down what his exact height was. Anywhere between 6’4.5” and 6’5” is the range I would give him.

I thought he was 6’5.25” at peak but it looks like I was wrong.
Kane99 said on 28/May/20

Brian Adams now after Sid refer himself as 6ft6, I think he looked 6ft4 1/2 but not 6ft5. Sid is clearly near 2 inches taller
Michael186 said on 1/May/20
I could see him as 200cm even in wrestling boots.
Nick6666 said on 28/Apr/20
I’d say 6’5” - he wore some big old boots but ge’s A good bit taller than Scott Hall in that video Demon87 posted. FWIW Bryan Clarke has said both he and Adams were 6’6”

That video’s got a couple of neat moments to flash forward to by the way ... at 9:15, Crush presses Razor. Hall was probably 255 max here, a good 40lbs down from his AWA or Diamond Studd day’s but regardless I’ve Never seen Scott Hall pressed - not by Goldberg, Warrior, Vader, nobody. Shows how confident Adams was and how much Hall trusted Adams. Crush was probably the strongest guy in the WWF at this time and was one of the strongest wrestlers ever. I believe he won strongman competitions while he was in the forces and could bench 580.

At 10:30, Hall hits the Razors Edge on Crush, no mean feat in itself. Adams was well north of 300lbs at this point and I don’t think I’ve seen Hall hit the move on a guy that size before. Hall’s Power is often overlooked because he hung around Nash so much.
Big ed said on 14/Apr/20
Crush was 6'6 billed 6'7" I seen him against lex luger papa shango goldust even with his partner Clark in kronik he was clearly taller than all and they were in the 6'4-5" range
SeanR said on 25/Oct/19
Nice video Demon87, Adams does look taller than Scott Hall there. I wonder if Hall was under 6’5” peak perhaps 6’4.5” or 6’4.75”?

Adams could have been 6’5.25”’ but probably no taller than that.
Demon87 said on 13/Jul/19

Pause 2:15
Crush was taller than 6ft 5 peak height razor ramon. 6ft 5 1/2 is more reasonible
Canson said on 9/Apr/19
@Rampage: I used to think strong 6’5 on the cusp of weak 6’6” but now I’d say strong 6’5. Still 196 up to a 196.5 maybe a mm more at a low. That’s likely the same as a peak Stern who may have been something like what Christian measures best case scenario
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/19
Same area as a peak Howard Stern, very strong 6ft5
Manpreet Singh Virk said on 21/Oct/18
Adams is 6'6.
Undertaker Frank said on 4/Jan/18
I met The Undertaker back in 93 and i asked him how tall he was and he told me 6ft 9 and he honestly looked it but in reality he probably was 6ft 7 so sometimes its hard to judge

I'm sure in wrestling gear he was around 6ft7

196-197cm zone is highly likely.
Aza said on 23/Dec/16
Possibly over 77 inches.
Michael said on 23/Dec/16
I met Crush (Brian Adams) at a House Show in 1997, and he said he was 6'7". He looked every bit of it
Mayfield said on 21/Dec/16
Another wrestler height topic. Adams was part of Demolition, so why not?

Bill Eadie (AX), billed 6'3, but looked 6'1
Barry Darsow (SMASH), billed 6'2, looks like a strong 6'2, I would even say 6'2 1/4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/16
Could really look like 197-198cm guy at times. If he was 6ft7 in wrestling gear than there's a stronger case for him being a bit over the 6ft5 mark.
Canson said on 18/Nov/16
196-197 barefoot strong 6'5 maybe a weak 6'6
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/16
6ft7 barefoot is a stretch but near 6ft6 isn't impossible. Very lanky build
Chris said on 5/Oct/16
I met Crush in 1997 at a house show. He said he was 6'7" and definitely looked it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/May/16
Around 6ft5⅞-6ft6

Sorry, Brian Adams - 6'5.25" - 6'5.5"

I think Chris could have been: 6'5.25"-6'5.5"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/16
Rob, how likely was 6ft6?
Editor Rob
not as convinced he was a big 6ft 6 guy
The Ben said on 9/Jan/15
I'd say 6'5 is a good bet. I was always a big fan of his.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/13
"Brian Adams's height 6ft 5.5in (197cm)"

One of the few wrestlers that actually looked near his billed height.

A peak Hulk Hogan was only 6'3" barefoot. His boots and gave him an extra inch and a half

That's ridiculous. Hogan was close to 6'6 BAREFOOT, in his prime.And anything under 6'4, is just sad on your part.As for Adams, I remember he was a big guy, but I doubt he was 6'6 if they billed him as that, they almost always build higher.I'd say a strong 6'5 though, 197cm a possibility

actually what you're saying is ridiculous Hulk Hogan was only 6'3" barefoot. His boots would give him an extra inch and a half bulking him up to approximately 6'5"

dicksock said on 14/Jul/11
He was definitely 6'5"-6'6". I say he was closer to 6'6". He and a peak Hulk Hogan would have been very very similar in height. He was only about 1" taller than Hogan in 1997-1998.

was 1nch shorter than Bryan clark who was around 4 inches shorter than 205-6cm kevin nash in a staredown!

Was he taller than Hulkster?

he was taller than hogan when the two were together in nwo in wcw circa 1997

Was he taller than Hulkster? then 6ft6 is definitely a possibility.

In front undertaker, is only 1 inch shorter, maybe 3cm
You can see at 1.06 sec in video Click Here
Solid 1.99cm for Crush

Although it´s problematic to estimate someone´s height based on just one staredown, Crush seems to be pretty close to Undertaker´s height (I agree with your 3cm difference). I guess, he has some footware advantage, because - according to other videos - 199cm seems a bit much for him, but I would propose an upgrade to 6´5.5 at least.
Matt Sisk said on 28/Jun/09
6'8" is Sid's billed height. His verified barefoot height is 6'6.5". It's on this very site.

Brian Adams was definately 6'5", that measurement is legit.

6'4.5" imo
Danimal said on 8/Nov/08
only had a couple of inches on Ax and Smash in the early 1990's and I believe that they were both around 6'1"-6'2" respectively. The most I see Brian at was 6'5", but I believe he wasn't over 6'4" in reality.
dave said on 7/Nov/08
hes CLEARLY over 6'4 in the ouc, and come on, he isnt even straight or head tilted back, manmun is also clearly fully erect...... i could see a possssssible 6'6 when straight. also he never wore big shoes.

I strongly believe that he was about 6'5'' that is believable. dont know what he was in his prime but 6'4'.75''- 6'5'' up until his passing.
here are what my billed heights would be today barefoot, tell me what you think.
Khali- 7'1''
Show- 6'11.5''-7 ft
Kane- 6'7.5-6'8''
Taker-6'7''-6'7.5'' anywhere in that range
Eudy-6'6''- 6'6.5''
Nathan Jones- 6'8.5-6'9''
Matt Morgan 6'9''
Kevin Nash- 6'9''
Bryan Clark- 6'4.75''
Brian Adams- 6'4.25''
John Tenta- 6'4.75
Tugboat- 6'4''
Kama- 6'4''
Big Daddy V-6'6.5''
Scott Hall 6'4.5-6'5''
The Harris Twins- 6'7''
The Berzerker John Nord- 6'6.5''
Kamala- 6'4.25
Faker Taker- would be 3.5 inches shorter than taker so id give 6'3.75- 6'4'' he wasnt much shorter than crush
Nailz- 6'4
Big bossman- 6'3.75-6'4
test-legit 6'6'' maybe 6'6.25''
Henry Godwin was 6'6'' peak and 6'4 and changed today, I had met him in person.
that vladmir dude on smackdown has to be 6'5'' maybe a little over that!
Ben said on 17/Oct/08
I always thought he was 6'4. I know he was billed at 6'8 for a lot of his career but he never looked that, He had a strange way of standing, always bent at the knees.
I could go for 6'5. Seen alot of shoot interviews recently, scott norton and bryan clark both comment on how strong he is.
Hugh said on 16/Oct/08
Legit 6ft5. More likely 6ft5.5-6ft6.

Big Show said on 16/Oct/08
This guy can look as tall as 6'6 or as short as 6'4, so putting him in the middle at 6'5 looks fine. When Kronik was in the WWE they looked shorter than Undertaker and Kane. He and Bryan Clark looked around the same height and Clark only looked 3-4 inches shorter than Kevin Nash.

He looked about the same height as Barry Windham and he wasn't that much taller than Hulk Hogan in 1998 when he was part of the NWO.
Markus said on 16/Oct/08
Pic could be deceiving because Mamum stands closer to the cam, but based on this pic he looks around 6'3" to me.
