Rob i found a match between khali and a 5ft9 guy. This is the staredown
Click Here
I don’t know how many inch is this guy under khali chin plus khali head is huge. the short guy had his mouth open and however khali head seems a lot bigger. I really think that khali in his peak wasn’t under 7ft1 despite in some match with big show doesn’t look much taller

He looked around the same height at 7'2 Giant Silva you'll find a picture on them together before his WWE days
CookieCutter said on 4/May/22
I wonder if he ever really was 7'1 or if he was just 7'0 in WWE and Big Show already lost 1 inch due to his weight by the time they would face off. He appears the same height as Shaq so I'd say peak was 7'0.

I feel like Andre the Giant, Great Khali, Shaq and Ron Reis would all be the same height at there peaks. Maybe Andre and Reese a tad taller with Silva being a little over an inch taller than all of them at his peak.
Glady said on 10/Apr/22
It's time to downgrade khalis height to 6.10 bcz he is similar in height to WWE dilsher shanky . While shanky has himself claimed that he is not 7ft but only 6.10 what's ur opinion Mr ob
Editor Rob
I think Dalip has lost height now and might be struggling to look 7ft tall with others.
John moss said on 23/Jan/22
Khali is actually 7'0? Some people mentioned he was like 7'3 or 7'4 like people in WWE I believe said that but I thought he was 7'1

It might not be much longer, though I get a bigger impression from his.

The Great Khali has a very big head, possibly larger than those of Sultan Kosen.
Editor Rob
Might be hard to really determine if Sultan has a noticeably bigger (more than 1/4 inch) head. If you look at Khali with normal women with maybe 8.5-.8.75 range head Click could see how over 11 might be possible.

Dred__ said on 5/Apr/21
Editor Rob
I think if you were to measure it, in the 5 range is possible but with a bigger range of eye-chin

I still think for what i see of khali that his eye-chin is around 6.5 inch i doubt it is shorter than that, it seems even longer than big show. I defintely think that both of this guy have a 11.5 inch long head

Much more reasonable guesses. Nice list man. I am within a cm of almost all of those guesses, except I am not sure about the height of Khali. His is pretty confusing.
Jimmy Lee said on 26/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy I agree with those guesses, except for the one about Big Show, Big Show, standing straight is a very strong 6'10, Shaq's Son (one of them) is 6'10, or a little over by that, I mean a half inch. Big show was very eye to eye, with him. I feel as if Big show would be, or could be ranged from 6'9 - 6'10 range, or maybe he could be 6'9.75, But 6'10 is a much more better assumption for Big Show.
J2Frenzy said on 12/Nov/20

J2Frenzy said on 6/Nov/20
Ok so I’ve just found a Quora thread where a guy has claimed to meet Great Khali and sled him about a bunch of wrestler heights. Khali’s claims were as follows:
Khali: 7’0.75
Big Show: 6’11 (current)
Kane: 6’7
Undertaker: 6’6.5
Shaq: 7’0.75
Randy Orton: 6’4-6’4.5
Triple H: 6’2
Lesnar: 6’2.25
John Cena: 6’0
Mark Henry: 6’3
The Rock: 6’2.25
Roman Reigns: 6’2.25
Kevin Nash: 6’8.75 (current)

Disclaimer: I’m not claiming any of these to be true or untrue, but the guy who posted them said he’d met Khali many times and these were commonly accepted heights
Hyper said on 25/Oct/20
I did see a picture of Shaq and Dalip Singh. Shaq looked taller.
Mickie said on 22/Oct/20
@Tidus - I thought Shaq looked a little taller than this guy, so Singh could be just under 7'0". But not by much, if he is/was.
Tidus said on 28/Sep/20
Y'all bugging and lowballing his height saying he was never 7 foot 😂
6'3 Julian said on 10/Sep/20
I mean I can believe 350 but I wouldn’t have guessed higher. 400, and especially 420, is WAY too heavy. If Khali is 420 Big Show must be pushing 550
Annonymous said on 8/Sep/20
He was 356 lbs on big boss so 350 was not fudged. He was 400 when he was younger with bigger legs.
6'3 Julian said on 20/Aug/20
7’1 is probably right. Has been billed at 350 and 420 pounds. I know bodybuilders bulk and cut, but this is ridiculous. No way he had 100lbs on Kane and even 350 seems fudged upwards slightly
SeanR said on 19/Aug/20
Khali could have been 7’1” way before he put on weight and when he was younger. More than likely he was around 7’0.5” at his peak.

Nowadays with his legs bent below his knees he gives the impression of 6’10” range. But if he straightens them out probably still close to 7’0” or 6’11 3/4”.
Glenn 6'6" said on 2/Aug/20
So I met Khali about seven years ago at a meet n greet. He was sitting down when he did the signing, but he was standing at the snack bar talking to fans later. He's absolutely gigantic. He was at least 6'11", he could have been 7'0". He was just built different. Khali is very impressive in person. Funny guy, too.
Eagleeye said on 29/Jul/20
Khali looked the same height like Shaq to 1/4 inch taller, but i can see 3/4-1 inch of shoes in him and 1.25 inch in the shaq's shoes.

So, Khali 215 flat at most, he looked 3.5 cm taller than Show in 2008, the last one was at most a fraction over 6'11 those days and 213 cm flat in his peak.
Wrasslinfan said on 11/Jul/20
I’m gonna say 6-7 inches on Kane
Aaron colton said on 2/Jul/20
I think khali at peak was 7ft 2 1/2 now 7ft 0 1/2
luissc96 said on 26/Jun/20
I miss the time when he was the giant dude in WWE (with Big Show of course) , great monster heel. Now there's a 7'3 new guy on the main roster. I hope he follows Khali's steps.
Riky said on 19/Jun/20
Shaq could have been a 7' peak, but probably already lost 2 cm since his 20/30s. And if I remember he was barely taller than Khali when they met.
My guess for Khali's current height is 208cm,6'10".
Peak 6'11" range
Clooony said on 29/May/20
@friedchicken they met he's taller than Shaq by some centimetres

Ali Baba said on 17/Apr/16
I've seen the man in person. From 15 feet away it was easy to tell he's a true 7 footer. Anyone who says 6'9" has to be trolling.

As a 6’6 man himself and having met Khali no doubt he was a 7 footer peak. Today yes he is less due bow legs . Can’t he get this corrected with surgery?
Sp yadav said on 26/Apr/20
Does someone has proof of gient andre height is 7,4" Bcz when he stands with hulk hogen he seems same in height where as if hulk stand closer to khali seema at least 4 -5 inch shorter how we can find the height of andre is 7fet 4 inches is real
Glady said on 12/Apr/20
Jagdeep Singh claiming 7.6 inches is inane and foolish he is only a bit over 7ft or may be 7.1 which is a perfect evidence as we can see a pic of Jagdeep Singh with great khali
Glady said on 4/Apr/20
Khali is no more than 7ft he looks only 6.11 these days he might have been a bit over 7ft in his prime days.
Nik Ashton said on 26/Mar/20
It seems that people of all heights claim to be taller than what they are!
SeanR said on 23/Mar/20
Peak: 7’0.5”
Current: 6’10.75” (Based on latest pic with Kevin Nash)

Looked a solid 5+ inches on peak taker back in 2006.
Nowadays barely looks more than 2 inches on current 6’8.75” Kevin Nash. His legs below his knees are real bad but if you straighten him up could be near where Rob has him currently at 7’0”
Nik Ashton said on 16/Mar/20

Public Enemy said on 15/Mar/20
Peak Khali was taller than Shaq as out of the ring Shaq wears trainers which give a good lift. Although we can’t see footwear in their pic together it would surprise me if Shaq had footwear advantage. Even then I can’t tell from the picnic excluding footwear whose taller?
If anyone has the pic of them both showing footwear I’d be interested in seeing that.
James B 172c, said on 12/Mar/20
7ft1 always seemed a bit much for this guy. I mean taller than Shaq?
Roderick said on 11/Mar/20
I don't think the real difference between Khali and Show was ever an inch. Seemed Khali only had around 1/2" on Show. Show could have measured 7'0" as a very young man in his 20s and already went to 6'11" due to all the weight compressing his spine by his early 30s.

Khali might have measured 7'0" as well but it doesn't seem likely as he was supposedly listed as 6'11 7/8" before, but that's pretty much 7'0".

But currently it's possible there is an inch between Khali and Show. Khali at 6'10" and Show at 6'9" is possible. And having met Khali I can say his knees look terrible and he could have definitely lost a good amount of height.
Dan Trojan said on 9/Mar/20
Roderick ok but that's not my point i'm saying that khali was always at least an inch taller than the big show honestly i believe shaq was over 7'0" just my opinion and he was maybe a half an inch taller than khali my point is if khali was never 7'0" neither was the big show
Roderick said on 7/Mar/20
@Dan Trojan Look at Khali with Shaq. Shaq is 7'0". Khali was shorter. That means Khali was never 7'0". Simple.
miko said on 4/Mar/20
He was near 7'1 peak, given how he stacked up to everybody in his prime that's pretty irrefutable.

Today he could have dropped to slightly below 7'0. It's very hard to tell though because could he straighten his legs more?

Nash had surgery and his knees/legs are in much better than they were a few years ago, much straighter, so he's likely still close to 6'9.
Dan Trojan said on 2/Mar/20
Roderick you make no sense you say khali was never 7'0" but believe big show was but khali was always clearly taller than big show
Roderick said on 24/Feb/20
6'11 78" sounds legit.

6'10" now
Riccardo5'7 said on 24/Feb/20

Rob I would like to know why in your opinion he is 7'0". Wich facts bring you to think he is that tall? Considering that he is clearly shorter next to legit 7 footers
Editor Rob
Well from seeing his body, I think the case can be made for today Dalip looking under 7ft. Could he still measure the mark? That's harder to tell, but I can understand 6ft 11 range estimates for him now.

RP said on 22/Feb/20
Sotiris has been telling you guys that Singh is now no taller than 6’10 1/2” currently. And I’ve been telling you for years, that his true (peak) documented barefoot height was 6’11 7/8” from his pro bodybuilding days in India during the early to mid 1990’s. Now, maybe you’ll believe it and Rob will make the necessary down grades for Singh. Rob...seriously...dude was officially measured once @ 6’11 7/8 ! Around 1993-1994. All of his 7’1” & 7’1” plus listings are in footwear. And everyone always says, “if he wasn’t a legit 7’1”, then his was he always an inch or so taller than The Big Show in the 2000’s. BECAUSE Paul “Big Show” Wight was never ever taller than a barefoot 6’11”. In college basketball @ Wichita St he was 6’11” barefoot & 7’0.5” in big size 20 sneakers & got a rounded up 7’1” sneakers height listing.

Editor Rob
His knees might be suffering now, it looks like he could have lost a bit more height through leg issues.
SeanR said on 20/Feb/20
Actually if your check Great Khali instagram his legs below the knees are bent. So he may still pull off close to 7’0” if they were straight.
SeanR said on 20/Feb/20
Great Khali these days may only be 6’11”. Check out Kevin Nash instagram page.

Can’t see footwear or if Khali legs are bent but he doesn’t look 7’0”

Never 7'0", but still over 6'10"

@Rob What do you think of dropping Khali to 7'0" peak height and now 6'11"? He only had 5" on Undertaker who I'd assume was max 6'6.75" in 2006. Undertaker would have to have been 6'8" to make Khali 7'1". Lower maybe?

Roderick said on 13/Sep/19
Meeting Khali in person, I doubt he was as low as 6'10". And this was last year.

He gave off a sub 7-foot impression, like 6'11.25"-6'11.5". My best friend is 6'10" and Khali was easily taller than him.

Khali looked over 7 foot but he had this massive shoes which probably gave near 2 inches

Is it possible that this guy was around 6'11.25 max peak and 6'10" now?

This listing seems definitely to high for him, he is around 2" inches shorter than legit 7' footers.

He is around an inch taller than big show if not 1.25 taller.

In 2006,in his prime, he did look 5" inches taller than Undertaker who already dropped in the 6'6" range back then.

He is basecly 1.25 shorter than Shaquille.

Btw still easy mistake him for a 7' footer if you see him around
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Sep/19
Public doorframes could be 84" (7'0"), but even then, I doubt it's more than that. That clip was back in 2012 or 2013 I believe, so I think he was at his peak or at least not far from it. Either way, 7'1" peak is too high.

Dalip really does look 6-10 with the evidence Sotiris has provided.

Though I do think Duncan is 6-3 and not 6-4
Sotiris Gravas said on 2/Sep/19
Rob, I noticed you downgraded him. That's a start, but that's still way too much for him.

Fellow poster, Christian, said that the highest door frames are 6'10.7" (2.1 m).

Here's Khali in wrestling boots next to a WWE door... Click Here , Click Here He's definitely not taller than that door. Also, Paul Heyman is max 5'9" -- a height that reaches my chin, w/ me being 6'7". In other words, Khali is 6'10", like I've been saying all along.
Editor Rob
Whether he is as short as 6ft 11 today I am not convinced, but it's true he can look 7ft at the very most nowadays.

@Roderick I honestly don't think Jagdeep's taller than a peak 7'0" Shaq. Look at the pic I posted of maybe 7'1.25" Porzingis who TOWERS over Russell Westbrook and Dolph Lundgren, in comparison to Jagdeep w/ Dwyane Wade...

If I'm wrong, then maybe he's around Porzingis' height.

@Sotiris How tall do you think Jagdeep is? Personally, it's hard to tell, but I know now he's not even close to what he claims.

Also Rob, you need to lower Khali. No way in hell is he 7'1" in 2019.
SeanR said on 19/Aug/19
It’s possible Khali was 7’1” but that was probably a mid afternoon height. I’m gonna say peak was 7’0.75” with current between 6’11.5” and 7’0”.

Also tape measures are not accurate all the time, especially in the way that man was doing it. Plus it went up to his turban
Sotiris Gravas said on 8/Aug/19
@Roderick Dude, I'm not trying to bust your chops or anything, but there's no possible way Jagdeep is 7'6". It's impossible. The pics I posted proves this. Please don't tell me that this is the video you're talking about... Click Here This is not satisfactory proof that has been verified. There's no guarantee that the measuring tape is still exactly at his feet when we see that close-up shot of his head, and the tape goes to the top of his turban, not his head. You saw the pics I posted comparing Dwyane Wade to Jagdeep and Shaq, 100% proving he can't be 7'6". Why are you so willing to believe this video, that has been authenticated by no one?

To this day, millions of ppl still believe Andre the Giant was 7'4" or 7'5" based on nothing but horse(bleep).

He is 100% not 7'6". A little constructive criticism, not trying to be mean here: You have to be a little more discerning when it comes to accepting something as bona fide proof. Just a reminder, you yourself said that Khali is 6'11" now, and you saw the pic of him w/ Jagdeep... so there's obviously no way the man is 7'6", right...? Dude... Think about it.
Roderick said on 8/Aug/19
@Vegas They were these super thick Jordan jumpman sneakers that had like 3 layers. No doubt they gave him a good boost. Im not good with determining shoe sizes but if I had to guess I'd say he was wearing a size 22 or something like that. He looked like he was maybe 7'1" in them. I would say 6'11.25"-6'11.5" barefoot that day. Maybe he could have stretched for 7'0", I don't really know. I was more focused on how big he was muscularity wise instead of his height.

Flat shoes? In the pic of the page, Khali's wearing Jordans, which typically adds no less than around 1.25". If anything, wearing flat shoes when you have a condition is worse, because they give little support or cushioning.
Roderick said on 6/Aug/19
@Sotiris Jagdeep was measured in a Youtube video. He was just over 7'7" in shoes.

What is strange though, is yes, he really doesn't look that all in photos, while for fact, not opinion, he certainly is 7'6".
Vegas' said on 6/Aug/19
Roderick, define "monster shoes". I don't think I have ever seen the guy in big footwear and certainly his current condition doesn't suggest it would be possible for him to walk in anything other than flat shoes.

Christian, Edwards did say peak Khali.
Roderick said on 5/Aug/19
Honestly when I met him he didn't just look 6'10" he did look 7'0"+ but he was in monster-shoes.

6'11" max today. Sotiris is not that wrong....

@edwards No offense but why are you always so sure of everything like "dude no way in hell he was this or that" like you know for CERTAIN how tall these guys are.

Khali doesnt even look 6'10" in some pictures and we can't pretend he does, he is looking short now. Definitely the most he would measure barefoot is 6'11"...
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Aug/19

Honestly, I'm not gonna sit here and talk down to you like an idiot because you aren't an idiot.

He honestly does look 6'10" in the photos you posted but I swear on my life that he looked 7'0" when I met him.

You do offer interesting evidence and it makes me wonder if he was wearing lifts or not.

My best friend is 6'10" and I come to just under his chin, but the thing is that Khalis' head was HUGE. I felt like he would have 2" on my friend. Khali was also WAAAAY bigger than him just in mass. Khali looked like he was well over 350 pounds, and my friend weighs about 288 pounds as of today.

As for Big Show, I can see 6'11.5" but that's the lowest I can go.

Thanks for the pictures btw, maybe I'm wrong and Khali isn't as tall as I thought he was when I met him. I notice you get a lot of #/$% because you estimate people at the lower end of the scale, if you know what I mean, but they make a lot of sense. More sense than ridiculous estimates like people saying 6'1"-6'2" for Cena, lmao.

Here's another example of an upward angle w/ Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell:
This: Click Here vs. that: Click Here See the difference?

You say you (5'11") came right under his chin. At around 6'7", a height of 5'9" comes under my chin. Given that he has a bigger head than mine, 6'10" for Khali's current height seems spot on. Thanks for confirming what I already know. A lot of old school bodybuilding heights are complete BS, FYI. He might have been 6'11" peak, not really sure.

It's hard to believe what I'm saying when Editor Rob lists Khali as 7'1", I get it.

What other 6'10" guys have you met and where was the top of your head relative to their chin level? Also, please tell me how what I just posted in any way fails to support what I'm conveying?

Roderick said on 7/Jul/19
Rob, can you add a page for Giant Silva? He was listed as 7'2" in the Olympics and 7'1" when he played basketball. Probably 7'1", perhaps?
Roderick said on 4/Jul/19
@Sotiris Gravas Khali isn't 6'10" that's insane I have met Khali and he was definitely a solid 7ft minimum and he was obviously much taller than legitimate 6'10" range men I have met in the past. Keep in mind that he was listed as 7'1" during his body building days and to be honest it looks spot on and they don't ever exaggerate anybody not even shorter men. They would never list someone who was "maybe 6'11" at 7'1". No way.

Even if Khali is 6'10", why would they wanna list him at 7'1"? 6'10" is a really nice sounding and solid height and Tbh sounds a lot better than 7'1", just my opinion.
Glady said on 2/Jul/19
Jagdeep Singh tallest police men in the world isn't 7.6 with Khali he looks only 7 ft 3. He's only 7ft3 not more than that may be 7.2 3/4.
Roderick said on 1/Jul/19
I met Khali late of last year. He was a really nice and smart guy, and was a lot different than I thought. I would guess he was 7'0 on the dot and not any higher than that. I am 5'11" measured, and I came just under his chin. He was absolutely massive, I would say he was a good 350lb or so. At his peak I would say he was about an inch taller at 7'1". I think if you added a current listing of 7'0 and kept his peak listing as 7'1", this listing would be spot on.

Vegas' said on 13/Jun/19
To address these points in order:

1. Shoulder mounted cameras are usually terrible for height estimations. A little further or closer to camera will have dramatic effects. That's why WWE backstage videos are rarely posted here any more. There is a WCW one from 97 where Nash looks like he dwarfs Paul 'Giant' Wight.

2. We have discussed in detail the Anderson photos, Khali is clearly leaning in there, relaxed posture..unless you are arguing that peak Big Show was inches taller than Khali based on Anderson photos?

3. Comparing acromegalic guys with non acromegalic guys isn't really going to work given difference in head sizes. Garnett has a small head for his height.

4. Silva still looks alot taller than Schilt there (more than 2 inches anyway) and posture is similar.

5. Shaq is definitely taller than max 7 foot given he had more than 4.75 inches on LeBron back to back and while Shaqs eyeline was higher in photo with Khali top of their heads wasn't 1.5 inches apart. Ditto Khali/Silva photo re eyeline.

6. None of those Kurrgan/Silva shots show height difference. There was at least 4 inches between the two in 98. That's JTs screenshot as can't find clip even on wwe network Click Here

I knew you'd bring up Goodridge, b/c you're thorough. Many MMA heights are BS. Here's Goodridge w/ Don Frye (listed 6'1")... Click Here Frye has on footwear, Goodridge doesn't -- not sure how much height that footwear adds. Also, Goodridge has a wide stance w/ Khali and Silva. Compare Khali/Silva/Goodridge Click Here to 6'2" Jason Kidd w/ 6'10" Dirk... Click Here

Kidd w/ 6'11" Garnett... Click Here

Look at Kidd next to Garnett, add on 2" for James Thompson w/ Silva... My point is that Silva is obviously not 7 feet tall. Maybe Silva and Khali were 6'11" peak height, and are now 6'10". Silva's 7'2" listing is a joke, as well as Rob listing Khali at 7'1".

I already posted that Semmy/Richters pic on Richters page. He looked maybe 6'8.5" there next to 7'0" Richters.

Video footage of Semmy (head down, feet far apart) w/ Silva: Click Here

In other words. I don't believe Silva was ever 7'1.5", regardless of what the Olympics listed him at. Same goes for Khali being listed at whatever BS height. Max 7'0" Shaq was at least 1.5" taller than Khali in that pic, but ppl can't see that b/c of the upward angle.

You say that Khali edges out Silva in both those pics... I disagree. Silva looked taller w/ Goodridge.

Vegas' said on 6/Jun/19
Again one photo he looked shorter with Satnam Singh, the other the same. If we use that one photo as evidence then Khali is shorter than Singh, Singh is same height as Richters, Richters looked same height as Big Show in photos (making Big Show stand 7'1+ in gear unless Richters was barefoot) thus Big Show is taller than Khali..

The Silva/Thompson clip camera angle makes it impossible to determine anything. What is your argument re:Silva anyway? He is under 7 foot? Silva was listed 217cm tall at 88 Olympics. Khali looks to edge out Silva in both those photos but I think Silva at least at peak would have been slightly taller if Meltzer and Olympics are to be believed. Khali looks ~11 inches taller than Gary Goodridge there too. How tall is he considering he is listed 6'3 in mma.. can't say I ever looked into him

I know you love comparisons so here is one to end.

Vegas' said on 4/Jun/19
All those photos have been posted multiple times on this site. let's try and stick to Khali not attempt to compare one guy with another guy and another guy with previous guy by using photos.

Why would a movie want Khali to be much taller and keep Kane normal height for a split second shot? The wrestlers were in the movie 20-30 seconds so not important elements. Movies are fake sure but why then are you posting movie shots if you feel that strongly?

Not sure how posting photos from 2004 proves Khalis current height though. I mean the only currentish shots you posted are with Satnam Singh and in one he is shorter and looks same height in another and neither shows footwear, ground or stance.

As said previously photos are nice but attempting to 'prove' something using photos is a bit futile. There are three or four recent enough photos of Khali and Shanky Singh a wrestler trained by Khali. Shanky is billed 7'1-7'2 usually and described as 7 foot by WWE in his recent tryout. In some photos Shanky looks taller while Khali looks taller in others.

No offense but only way you can 'prove' something on here is by either measuring or showing measurement stats. We are working with estimates even in-person meetings.

That shot of Khali And Godsey is 2004 so close to Khalis peak. His huge pads (4/5XL) make it look like he is closer than he is. Khali looked almost that much taller than Kane 5 years later, walking scene Click Here and Khali is behind everyone there Click Here

Even if Godsey measurement was morning unless it was within an hour out of bed he would keep his 6'6 height most of day and maybe fall to 6'5 3/4 late at night. He looks solid 6'6 with 39 year old Austin who was 184cm range then Click Here

Sapp was measured 6'4 1/4 barefoot and easily 3+ inches taller than Bobby Lashley barefoot in their fight and Rob met Lashley
Sotiris Gravas said on 28/May/19
@Vegas You said Khali was barely closer to the camera... Godsey looked like he was around 5 miles in back of Khali, possibly a different ZIP code. (I might be exaggerating a little.) Bottom line, I've already proven that he's 6'10" now. His current listing of 7'1" is a joke. Sapp is max 6'4" IMO, and I'm assuming 6'6.25" for Godsey was a morning measurement -- which would mean he's not that tall.
Vegas' said on 26/May/19

MelvinJones said on 1/May/19
Khali was listed at 6'111 and 7/8 when he was a bodybuilder so that was hia barefoot height. He was a heavy weightlifter so 6'10 is his current height. Gravas is right as usual. Fanboys just cannot comprehend huh.
Canson said on 1/May/19
@Viper: it’s over 2” in the pic with all three but bosh and Wade have footwear advantages on Bosh. Maybe .25-.5”. Nonetheless that’s going to make it Close to 2” with Bosh and Mourning
Canson said on 1/May/19
@Viper: yea that’s also 2” Bosh has on Mourning even more with his footwear advantage. I wouldn’t go less than 1.5” without. I would say Wade looks no more than 6’3” though. Thicker footwear also and standing closer to camera. Maybe Zo is 6’8.25 but I’ve been saying all along he wasnt 6’9.5”. Wade next to Bradley Beal looks shorter. Beal I can believe having grown as he physically looks that height today. He was a morning 6’3.25 previously but today I can perhaps buy around 6’3.5 at a low
viper said on 30/Apr/19
Wade is looking 6-3.5 there with 6-8 Mourning IMO
viper said on 30/Apr/19
Duhon I disagree. I see 1.5 inches between Bosh and Alonzo. Plus Alonzo has perfect posture there
viper said on 30/Apr/19
That Alonzo-Ewing pic really does convince me that Alonzo is actually 6-8, because Ewing isn't any taller than
Sotiris Gravas said on 30/Apr/19
@Duhon 6'8" barefoot-afternoon-height Alonzo Mourning obviously looks 6'8" next to 6'10.25" Chris Bosh, is what you should have said. Hopefully, you're not a fool who's incapable of grasping reality, or some troll trying desperately to inflate Mourning's height , and in turn, Khali's.

Here's 6'8" Mourning, 6'10" Patrick Ewing, and 7'1 Dikembe Mutombo... Click Here

When you actually know what you're talking about, get back to me.

Note to everyone: Khali was never 7'1" and he's 100% not 7'0" today. And no, I'm not wrong. He's around 6'10" now, that all.
Short and Wide said on 18/Apr/19
Anyone sayin' Khali is only 6'10 is making a big joke of himself
Annonymous said on 6/Apr/19
Mahal on tippy toes or something weird going on lol because no way he's 5 or 6 inches under khali like that pic shows. There looked 8-9 between them when they worked together and Mahal is a huge 6'4 guy.

Vegas prime Khali was something else, I believe when he says he's about 400 lbs there.
SeanR said on 1/Apr/19
Hi Rob,
I value your opinion greatly. Given some pics here recently posted is it safe to say Khali has lost height? His legs do give the effect of looking like hockey stick shaped so maybe he has dipped to or at below 7’0”?

Peak 7’1”
Current 7’0”?
Editor Rob
I can see how 7ft today looks to be likely, I need to check again at one point.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Mar/19

It's one thing to disagree with Sotiris, but to accuse him of purposefully bringing down celebs nearer his own height is ridiculous.

@Sotiris Gravas Im the fly that annoys people? Look at yourself in the mirror dude...There's a lot more people AGAINST you than FOR you on this site. You seem to downgrade a lot of Robs listings...Rob knows what hes doing pal. Your estimations are so out of whack man! Go look at that pic of Khali and Shaq they're bob on the same height. Khali's eye line maybe lower but its the top of the heads that counts. Khali doeasnt have huge hair so its real easy to draw a line at the top of their heads.
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Mar/19
@Mr. McMullin I specifically stated that Khali is NOW 6'10", not 6'9" -- (snap snap) pay attention. Again, what I posted proves this, w/o question. You're like a fly interrupting my meal, dude. My best advice: change your name to "Pathetic." It suits you. Peace out, kid.

@Sotiris Gravas the obsession you state that I non-existent. The fact you have really poor height guessing skills and to state Khali is 6ft9 is like saying Mysterio is 23 foot tall. Khali maybe 6ft his pants but not his height XD and @Christian His guesses are pathetic dude you have to realise this dont you?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Mar/19
The accusation about how posters "downgrade" celebs in order to want to be taller or the same height as the celebs, is getting really old. Not to mention, it's also a dumb accusation.
Ellis said on 19/Mar/19
Today 6'11.5, can look just 6'11 in some pictures for people arguing that although I wouldn't go lower than that. In his prime he was good 7 footer, good chance he was 7'1(if not more)out of bed, Rob knows what he is doing.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Mar/19
Don't let people claiming fractions fool you into thinking they're legit. It's no more legit than claiming whole inches, to be honest. The Rock claimed to be 6'4.5" once but obviously that doesn't mean that he is. I've known someone personally who claimed 5'10.75" but didn't look anything over 5'9.5"

@Vegas Maybe I was a little more snarky than playful... My apologies go out to The Ben if he found the tone of my comments to be too gruff. (Maybe all the troll comments I get here are starting to rub me the wrong way...) The same goes for my man, rasdshaq. No hard feelings, I hope.
Dan Trojan said on 14/Mar/19
Rawdshaq i have to agree with sotiris on this just because a wrestler claims they're a certain height or any celebrity for that matter doesn't mean 100% they are just take hulk hogan for example he claimed to be 6'7" but in my opinion was never over 6'5"
Vegas' said on 14/Mar/19
Meltzers 7'0.5 barefoot at peak in the mid 1990s seems closest to truth.

Obviously today he likely has lost height given his legs are inverting inwards

In 2010 Khali still looked solid 7'1+ in boots with Cena who probably was ~6'2 in those 1.5 inch sneakers Click Here compare that with 6'6 Ali Baba and Cena and Khali comes out 6 inches taller easily Click Here

Also Khali comes out at least 3.5 inches taller next to 6'6 measured barefoot Gary Godsey in early 2004 compared to kevin nash who was 10 years younger there than when Rob met him Click Here Click Here

The Ben has been here for years and posted multiple photos of himself with wrestlers. Even if you don't agree with his estimates he deserves more respect than being talked down to.
Sotiris Gravas said on 13/Mar/19
@rawdshaq The guy who lies about his height -- namely you -- questions whether someone else would do the same thing. I'll refrain from stipulating w/ excruciating detail what I find to be a "joke" so as to spare your feelings... bro.
rawdshaq said on 11/Mar/19
He said he's 7'3/4" tall so he's 7'3/4" tall. Who would lie about their height to such an accurate measurement lol. 6'10" for Khali is a joke bro
Sotiris Gravas said on 8/Mar/19
@The Ben Will wonders never cease...? Yet another poster who disagrees w/ the ample evidence, a plethora of pics I've supplied as proof, not mere opinion... So, you wanna believe Khali is still a hair over 7 feet...? Yeah, you do that... LOL. I strongly suggest you go back and look at what I posted.

The Ben said on 7/Mar/19
Not sure why you only post photos of people looking short and not a mix of tall and short to get an honest height?
It's like all you want to do is make people smaller.
I'd say Khali is around 7ft, maybe a hair over.
Dan Trojan said on 6/Mar/19
No offence but in that picture mahal is clearly standing in front of the great khali which means he's closer to the camera there would be a bigger difference if they were standing side by side
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Mar/19
There's only about a 5 inch difference in this pic though. That's strange. Click Here
Dan Trojan said on 5/Mar/19
While i agree that shaq is a bit taller than great khali i don't believe it's by 2 inches i'd say a half inch maybe an inch but i find that hard to believe both their staredowns with the big show show they have similar height on him but shaq definitely edges khali a bit i truly believe khali is legitimately 7'0" so i'll put shaq at 7'0.5"
Sotiris Gravas said on 5/Mar/19

miko said on 18/Jan/19
Easily 7'0.5/7'1 peak. Likely 7'0 flat today due to leg bowing.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Jan/19

Khali has a much bigger head the the average person, probably about a foot long. Still, I can't see more than a 14 inch difference between Sandler and Khali.
Sotiris Gravas said on 15/Jan/19
Here's a slouching 5'9.5" Adam Sandler w/ Khali... Click Here At only 6'7", a 5'9" dude reaches my chin. So, 7'1" for Khali...? No.
Henry said on 24/Dec/18
It's very disturbing in the photo with
Jagdeep Singh how Khali's ankles are curved like sideways hockey sticks. He used to have tree trunks for legs in his prime and now he has toothpicks for legs. Khali lost well over 100 lbs since his peak weight but his ankles are still straining and bending in an unnatural manner under his still well over 300lbs weight. Khalis height even with his curved ankles makes me think that he was at least 7'2" barefoot when his legs weren't messed up.
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
The chance , of him being anything under 7'0" is this : zero percent .
Ozzy said on 15/Dec/18
Yeah I also seen a listing for Jagdeep at 7'4", seems more likely. That would have Khali around 7 - 7'1 Id say...
Vegas' said on 4/Dec/18
Jagdeep Singh is described as 7'6 in many places including newspapers but he looks 2.5-3 inches taller than Khali there putting his real height around 7'3...shorter if Khali has lost height from his peak obviously
Ozzy said on 27/Nov/18
I think hes a legit 7'...

Here he is with 7'6" Jagdeep Singh

Annonymous said on 26/Nov/18
Why was Singh 11 inches taller than dave Batista then? Oh wait sotoris...Batista is 5'11.5 right?
Vegas' said on 25/Nov/18
Khali and Edge shot is probably 2010 given Edge retired in 2011 so not recent, AJ Lee didn't debut on WWE tv until 2010 so can't be before that. Edge looked closer to 6'3 the year or so before he retired. Edge also slightly closer to camera there.

Speaking of Robinson he didn't look that much taller than Kevin Nash on video in 1990s (though admittedly it wasn't great for height comparison) and noticeably shorter than Shaq so peak Khali would have been taller for sure. As I said on Shows page Meltzer stated that Khali was measured 7'0.5 barefoot in the 90s in California which looks about right next to Giant Silva who was listed ~7'1 at 1988 Olympics.

Khali dwarfed 6'6+ barefoot Gary Godsey while Kevin Nash looked couple of inches taller.

Not seen much of Khali recently but he still had alot of height on Jinder Mahal at the end of his match with Orton in Summer 2017 if you watch back video.
Sotiris Gravas said on 24/Nov/18
@184guy2 If the Rock pic is a fake, my abject apologies. I thought he looked too tall in that pic... Oopsie poopsie.
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Nov/18
Yeah, I noticed that a selfie of some dude popped up instead of my pic of Edge (now 6'1") w/ 5'9" Paul Heyman and Chris Jericho. Here it is... Click Here

1) Just for fun... Look at 6'11" David Robinson (slouching BIG-time) w/ 6'2" Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (back in 2013)... Click Here

2) Compare w/ Khali (standing straighter than Robinson) and 6'2" Edge (slouching):
Click Here

Khali is in NO way 7'1". Robinson looks to be the taller man. He seems to "edge" him out, as it were (pardon the pun).

For height confirmation, here's 6'2" Tsonga w/ 6'4" Gael Monfils... Click Here

@Rob Time for a downgrade on Khali and Edge, who's only 6'1" now... Click Here

I could buy 6'10.5" barefoot for Khali now, 6'11.5" in shoes. Maybe his peak was 6'11.5" or 6'11.75", but not anymore.
184guy2 said on 20/Nov/18
I believe Khali's head was shorter than Andre's but still in the 11-12'' range
He looks easy 9-10'' taller than PEAK Batista who was about 6'3
To me Khali was 7'0.5-7'0.75 PEAK ( nowdays under 7')
A tad taller than Shaq
If he had a normal sized head , 6'4 guys would be at his mouth , but since he has a 2'' bigger head than normal folks , 6'4 guys are about his nose

Xavier said on 7/Nov/18
Cycklops, you would have to chop off an inch from Nash and Undertaker peak heights for those to correspond with Shaq, Big Show and Khali.

Big Show was 2 1/2 inches taller than Nash in similar footwear in the 1990s. Khali looked more than 2 inches taller next to the same people on the set of the longest yard.
Henry said on 5/Nov/18

The Great Khali is 7' flat. There's about a 2 inch difference between him and the Big Show who is 6'10 or more likely 6'9.75
Hulk Hogan is a weak 6'3 imo and a strong 6'5 in his prime
Undertaker is 6'6, and around 6'7 in his prime, but he never gave me the impression of being a strong 6'7 when I saw him in person 13 years ago.
Cycklops said on 6/Sep/18
After years of research, these are the numbers. All peak heights in socks.

Hulk Hogan 6'4"
Sid 6'7.5"
Undertaker 6'7.5"
Kevin Nash 6'9"
Andre the Giant 6'9.75"
Big Show 6'10.5"
Great Khali 6'11.5"

Rob, between Show and Khali I'd say their head size is relatively close Big Show's eyelevel and up and for Khali I'd say it's eye to chin
MAD SAM said on 22/Jun/18
He seems 216 cm alright, definitely 7’1” most of the day
mrtguy said on 12/Jun/18
Rob, if he was standing next Big Show of today I think it would be less than 2 inches more like 1.5 inches don’t you think??
Editor Rob
Generally about 1.5-2 between them I'd have thought.
mrtguy said on 11/Jun/18
Rob, why don’t you just list him as 7’0.5” that seems more reasonable than the full 7’1”??
Editor Rob
I'm not sure if I seen enough to say if that's the best figure, though I would say 7ft 1 might well be the top end of a possible range, so I wouldn't rule out a bit under that.
mrtguy said on 7/Jun/18
Rob, I think 7'0.5'' seems about fair, time for a change please??
Micky said on 29/Apr/18

Hey guys as I have already said I meet khali often.I had a talk with him yesterday and I asked him about shaq height .The think which I liked about khaki is that he said "height has no such great value,the thing that matters is talent".BUt after a long request he said me that shaq is no inch taller than him but he looks tall because his head size is small compared to him .IN simple he said that shaq at Max is 7.05 and no more than that .
