BTW, here's some better pictures of the height difference between Edge & Triple H which might make it easier to judge Batista's height.

Cool, Randy always seems friendly with fans even if he is a bit of a troublesome guy backstage. I agree there's little, if anything, between Edge & Randy Orton. I think Randy is taller than 6'3" though. He's one of the only guys who actually looks his billed height of 6'4". Unlike guys like Chris Masters who was shorter than Edge when they teamed together briefly and who's supposedly 6'4".
DocHolliday said on 24/May/07
I've seen them a couple times. Most recently was December before a show at the Continental airlines arena in NJ. Orton was the only one lifting, I talked with him while he was getting a shake....Edge just came in to pick him up before they went to the arena. Orton has a rep for being a dick, but both he and edge were really friendly and low key. Theyre both reasonably tall, but edge just looked kinda thin.
Viper said on 24/May/07
Orton is 6-3 If Edge is 6-2. Only an inch between them.
hannah said on 23/May/07
Lol, gaunt. Edge is probably 6'3" then i suppose. When did you see them in the gym?
DocHolliday said on 23/May/07
When I met them at the gym, Randy Orton in sneakers (nike shox) was over an inch taller than edge (wearing flat steve madden like shoes). Orton with shoes was 6'5 all day, but take the shox off him and hes 6'4 tops. Edge was actually taller than I thought he'd be...6'3 is right. He's a long, gaunt dude, pretty big head. Orton was jacked up at the time, and had the neck/face bloat from using the sauce....not like the skinny neck look hes sporting now.
Jason said on 22/May/07
It was WWF magazine themselves. They described him as 6'1'' plain as day.
Vegas said on 22/May/07
Even if we go with the lowest estimate for Batista here (Vipers 6'2-6'2.25); then based on the face-off of Edge and Batista (who was wearing cowboy boots) and 1" shorter; then the shortest Edge could possibly be is 6'3 i would have thought???

Surely a 6'2 Edge would therefore result in a 6'0-6'1 Batista?? unless his footwear was 2" bigger than Batista's cowboy boots.
Alex said on 22/May/07
Edge was what 3-4 inches taller than Christian who is 5'11 himself. Weird they listed Christian at 5'10 for years when he looked closer to 6'0. Then after a while he was listed at 6'1. That 225lbs billed for him was crap. He didn't look anything over 190lbs to me and thats maybe pushing it a bit.
Alex said on 22/May/07
My personal guess on Edge right now is 6'2.5.
Viper said on 22/May/07
I beleive Jason said that Powerslam magazine listed Edge at 6-1 once. I think hes 6-2 max.
supes78 said on 21/May/07
I'd give Edge around 6'3". One of the few guys that's billed very close to his actual height. And Batista did indeed look shorter, BUT Edge as always was wearing his wrestling boots while Batista was sporting dress shoes. I still say Batista is nothing under 6'3".
Vegas said on 21/May/07
Viper if anything Batista had the footwear advantage as he was wearing cowboy boots, its not very clear but trust me he was wearing big ole cowboy boots there. Here is the whole segment Click Here

Here is Hogan and Edge btw Click Here
Danimal said on 21/May/07
Whatever Edge WAS, he WAS shorter than Hogan when they fought.
Jason said on 21/May/07
Edge wore lifts for a while back around 2002.
Alex said on 21/May/07
Edge can look 6'3 though. He's not 6'4 but 6'3 maybe though. 6'2 and change he's most likely though.
hannah said on 21/May/07
Your probably right. There's a picture with Edge face to face with Triple H from 2002 on his profile on onlineworldofwrestling. He looks an inch taller plus he's leaning in so he's probably 1.5"-2" taller when he stands up straight.
That would make Triple H about 6'0" even. Is that his real height?
Jason said on 21/May/07
I've long since pinned Edge at 6'2 1/4''.
Jason said on 20/May/07
Baseball heights are inflated, like NBA ones. I don't know who those guys even are, let alone their real heights, but Viper will know.
Jason said on 20/May/07
Edge isn't 6'4'', 6'2 1/2'' at most. I don't think he's taller than Batista, though, prolly just propping himself up.
Viper said on 20/May/07
I think Edge and Batista are the same exact height at 6-2. I beleive Edge just has a footwear advantage in that picture. I know Alex Rios of the Blue Jays is a legit 6-5. Too bad Edge didnt stand next to him. Ive seen BJ Ryan up close in person when he was playing for the Orioles and hes not 6-6, closer to 6-4 actually.
firerusso said on 20/May/07
Click Here Sorry, forgot to post the link.
firerusso said on 20/May/07
Here's some pictures of Edge with some Toronto Blue Jays Players. He's stood next to Jeremy Accardo who's 6'2", Vernon Wells who's 6'1" and B.J Ryan who's 6'6" and looks a solid 6'4" which makes Batista about 6'2.5" max and more likely 6'2" flat.
hannah said on 20/May/07
Yeah i heard he was 6'2.5" - 6'3" but he was the same height as Randy Orton when they teamed up who's no shorter than 6'4" and he was several inches taller than Christian who's supposed to be 6'1" and probably 6'0" at the smallest. So i can't see Edge being any smaller than 6'4". Batista does look about 6'2.25" in most pictures i agree especially with Arnold Schwarzenegger. I used to think he was about 6'4" but he's nowhere near that.
JohnP said on 20/May/07
hannah:

Many people claim that Edge is 6-3 or even 6-2. Someone mentioned his "real" height was 6-2 1/2.

I belive that Viper is correct on this point. I don't think Dave is much over 6-2.
hannah said on 20/May/07
Here's a picture of Batista face-to-face with Edge (6'4") on Smackdown.
Click Here
Looks about 6'2" - 6'3" here. Rob's estimate is pretty much perfect.
Alex said on 19/May/07
Andre Fan, Noel was measured at 6'4.5 but I thought he looked 6'5-6'6 though.
andre fan said on 19/May/07
noel is listed at 6'6" so batista is either 6'3" or 6'4".
Viper said on 16/May/07
Batista looks 6-2 1/4 at best with David Noel.
Vegas said on 15/May/07
Here is a very very interesting video Click Here from the 1.30 mark onwards. I am saying nothing.......
Alex said on 14/May/07
Jason, the site that Viper linked about Noel's drafted height said 6'4.5 for barefoot and in shoes 6'6. He probably is 6'4.5 unless he grew a bit more since then but I thought he looked 6'5-6'6 though. Probably cause of his lean build.
Viper said on 14/May/07
That picture is taken at a different angle from what I could remember from the original.
Jason said on 14/May/07
I could swear there were 3, too? Yeah, I definitely saw a few...

David Noel is 6'4 1/2''?
Vegas said on 14/May/07
Thats the same pic taken from WWE.com on the same date Viper :)

Ok let me rephrase what I said. "I only ever saw one picture of David Noel and Batista standing together posted on this website". Maybe you saw others Viper but they were never posted here.
Viper said on 13/May/07
Now Vegas is calling me a liar, ROFFLES. Anyway I found one of the other pics here. Click Here
Alex said on 13/May/07
Looking at the picture with Batista and Noel, Vegas is right. Batista is leaning a tad but won't affect much though but there may only be 2 inches between the 2 though. And Noel can easily pass for 6'5-6'6 though.
Alex said on 13/May/07
With the cut out he only looks 6'2. Other times he looks closer to 6'3.
Vegas you saw him in person standing where I didn't so I can't argue about that, but I think he could be 6'3 at the most though.
Jason said on 13/May/07
In all honesty, Batista does look nothing over a flat 6'2'' with the cut-out.
Vegas said on 13/May/07
There was never 3 photos Viper, just one :D

Batista is also slightly leaning in that photo with Noel, draw a line across his eyes and you will see that. Seeing as the difference is approx 2-2.5" there with Batista leaning it would be interesting if he were to stand up fully straight. Noel is 6'6 with shoes, batista 6'3.5-6'4 with shoes. I saw a 6'2.5-6'3 Batista in person. Robs figure of 190cm is very fair, as he is somewhere between 6'2.5 and 6'3
Viper said on 13/May/07
I saw 3 photos. They are not on the same WWE page though. Batista with boots plus lifts would look 6-5 I would suspect.

[Editor Rob: if you can find and link them I'd be very interested as against this basketball man he could be worth looing at.]
Matt said on 12/May/07
Batista has to be 6'5''. When Undertaker had a staredown with Batista he had Batista by 2 inches, and Undertaker is 6'7''.
Vegas said on 12/May/07
there was only one photo of Batista and Noel; you are getting mixed up with Shad and Boris Diaw ;) Click Here Noel is listed at 6'6 by NBA so if he really is just 6'4.5" then he wears very large shoes indeed. One photo especially with a guy that obviously wears very big shoes is never enough evidence. I always go with videos over photos anyway; based on these photos Triple H (leaning) is 6'3 with Big Ben Click Here and Viscera is 6'7 with Max Starks Click Here

Another photo of Batista and cutout Click Here
Viper said on 12/May/07
Rock's the same height as Batista, 6-2. Randy Orton has an inch max on both of them at 6-3.
Viper said on 12/May/07
He looks a flat 6-2 with the cutout. He just physically looks like a 6-2 guy there anyway. What sealed it for me was that he looked a flat 6-2 in 3 seperate pictures at different angles with 6-4 1/2 David Noel.
Alex said on 12/May/07
Jason, I have a Rock cut out that I bought 8 years ago that stands 6'2.5. Well it said 6'2 but I measured it and got 6'2.5. Pretty much Rock's height.
Funny they had an Austin and Undertaker standups that were both 6'2 a piece but then have a Kurt Angle stand up that stands 6'3! Weird though.
Alex said on 12/May/07
Viper, I agree with you more often than I did a while back when I first came onto the board, but still some I think you go a bit too low on though. Thats as far as heights go. Weights is a whole other ball game. haha
Jason said on 12/May/07
lol

Oh, the cut-out is 6'6''?? Yep, that pic pretty much confirms 6'2 1/2'' max. Pretty f*uckin' ironic... lol
Viper said on 12/May/07
Wow, its scary how accurate I am without much to go by.
Alex said on 11/May/07
Ok, I just saw it. That standup is 6'6 according to WWE.com. He's wearing sneakers that give 1-1.25 inches of height and looks 3 inches shorter than it. 6'2 looks accurate there though or 6'2.5 at most.
Ghost said on 11/May/07
In one of those pictures Batista appears similiar in height to Umaga (not standing straight), who is about 6'2.
Viper said on 10/May/07
Its on the same page that Doc Holliday posted.
Alex said on 10/May/07
I didn't see him next to his cutout. Is there a picture that can be posted?
Viper said on 10/May/07
Alex, how tall does Batista physically look to you next to his cutout. He gives me a 6-2 impression there while is cutout looks 6-5-6-6.
Alex said on 10/May/07
Viper, if I would have stayed by the table a little longer before going to the back of the line I would have been able to see him walk right by me because someone on line said they saw him up close right before they got on line. I was like damn.
Viper said on 10/May/07
Batista gives me a 6-2 impression standing next to his cardboard cutout.
Alex said on 9/May/07
BTW, Jason what do you think of the picture I posted of me with Batista and Melina. Not sure if you saw it. See how pissed he looks! Waste of money almost for that picture. I've met adult film stars and got pictures with them for cheaper than with Batista and it was 100 times better. LOL
Da Man said on 9/May/07
Definitely smaller, but he's still big and cut.
DocHolliday said on 9/May/07
I have a couple on my computer here...but I found the one I was thinking about. Tell me he doesn't look like he got completely deflated. Heres the site, the pic is on page 3:

Click Here
Jason said on 9/May/07
The pic I'm talking about was with Tito Santana ... and he was only (and a 50-year-old) Tito's size. It was crazy. Yeah, there was one with Jamal, as well, come to think of it. Someone defintely post it if you spot it anywhere...
Alex said on 8/May/07
I gotta see this picture you're talking about. If someone finds it then post it. Would be funny if he was around my size.
Mike said on 8/May/07
Jason I remember that picture! He was definately Off cycle then and looked a fit 220 MAX and thats being considerate. The pic im thinking of was where he was outside and had a white shirt ( I think). For the guy who said that they WWE has banned steroids therefore no one uses it, umm.. tell that to the olympic committee. No offense but thats very naive.
Alex said on 8/May/07
It would be interesting to see this picture with Batista much smaller. Man, I probably wouldn't even recognize him right away.
DocHolliday said on 8/May/07
Jason, I know the exact pic youre talking about. its after one of his injuries, so he wasn't able to gas and lift like usual. he's wearing a button down long sleeve white shirt in it, and looks like a kid next to Jamal (currently Umaga)
Alex said on 8/May/07
Also I read Lesnar dropped some weight and is now down to 265-270lbs. He said himself in an interview I recently saw on another page here.

Batista was a pretty big guy in person though. I should have told him that I was bigger than him then see what he would have said. LOL
Even with Batista in the picture I still look big.
Jason said on 8/May/07
He was SKINNY in the pic I'm talking about. It was nuts ... he looked like he'd quit lifting weights. It was from 2003. I think the link was from the Wild Samoans training site, but the site was down for maintenance last I checked.
Viper said on 7/May/07
Rock has always been a naturally big guy. His highest weight was playing college football.
Alex said on 7/May/07
I don't think guys like Angle or Benoit are on them. Austin said he used them when he first started in the 80's. He looked natural to me for the most part. The Rock said he used them when he was 18 and never again. Some of these guys get big but look natural. Now guys like Batista its obvious they took something.
Alex said on 7/May/07
I've never seen Batista at 225lbs. So he dropped like 60-70lbs then. LOL
The guy looked at least 280lbs when I met him in that picture below.
Viper said on 6/May/07
Oh man, Bastista has used roids big time for sure. You dont get that muscular without a little help usually.
Jason said on 6/May/07
There was a pic of Batista from when he was out for a while in 2003 when he was about 225lbs. I kid you not, he was that small. Did you see it? Or anyone else remember it? I tried to access it from the board it was at but the link was expired. (that's what happens when you stop taking your vitamins). All those guys were on and still are; the size you gain from steroids is dependant on continued use. The other big reason wrestlers use them is for their recuperative properties - they heal muscular injuries faster and help withstand the rigors of wrestling night in and night out. Which is why guys you wouldn't suspect are on them, too (Shane Helms named as a buyer in that investigation, Jake Roberts admitted to using them are just a couple of examples).
Alex said on 6/May/07
Jason, I think some of these guys were on them at a point then got off. YOu'll see it where guys go on a cycle for a big boost then get off then some keep going. Batista was at some point, Chris Masters recently was on them. Eddie was at a point too. Lesnar I'm not sure about, not saying he wasn't only beacause I'm a fan of his but he may have been but I refuse to believe Angle was though, not just because I'm a big fan of his. HHH was for sure for sometime starting back in late 1999 when he put on like 30lbs or something.
JohnP said on 6/May/07
Jason:

I don't really know. Although, doesn't Batistas eyes look strange if you look orderly at them? My friend told me that the easiest way to find out if someone is on steroids, is to look at their eyes, because the eye fluid establishes unnormal on pretty much almost all people who is on steroids.

And Sports Illustrated wrote an article not so long ago where they accused some wrestlers to be on steroids (although Batista wasn't one of them). I don't remember which wrestlers is was, but I remember that one of them was Edge.

And it wasn't me who asked that question, it just popped up on Google when I searched about the subject.
Jason said on 5/May/07
John, I would say 75% of the roster (let alone uh ... some people) were using steroids, at least until Eddie died. Many of those still would be ... don't tell me you take that health and wellness policy seriously? About that link, if you asked that question at a bodybuilding or football board etc., you would be laughed off the board. I don't mean to offend you, it's just what would happen...
Alex said on 5/May/07
Here is me with Batista and Melina from a couple months ago. Look how upset he looks. LOL
I had to crouch down a bit because if I stood I wasn't going to get into the picture fully.

Click Here
Alex said on 5/May/07
They know list Batista at 290lbs on WWE.com. For a long time it was 317lbs so in reality he probably lost some weight. He looked 280 miniumum when I met him. The picture for that is coming soon when Rob posts it hopefully.
JohnP said on 5/May/07
Jason:

I think you can pretty much forget that thought. Dave is probably not on steroids, since it's not allowed to take them anymore in the WWE, after the little "incident" in 1994 (I think it was). Many wrestlers has been kicked from the WWE because that they have not passed their drug test.

Wrestlers have very hectic work outs, so I don't think they even need steroids.

This article talks a little about the subject: Click Here

vadar had 3 inches on stone cold,so if stone cold is 6'2" vadar is 6'5".
Jason said on 4/May/07
I just took a wild guess as to what could be contributing to Batista behaving the way he does.
Viper said on 4/May/07
What did you say Jason?
Alex said on 4/May/07
That anonymous guy was me by accident.
Jason, I saw pictures of him on the beach from the Jay Leno show online. Pretty sick. Def the biggest man muscle wise I've seen too.
Jason said on 4/May/07
Ohio Valley billed Batista as 6'7'' in 2000. I remember this from a WWE magazine. Goes to show how much they lie...
mick said on 4/May/07
when batista was in evolution they said he was 6'5 most the time, a couple of times they said he was 6'6 he may be 6'5 but at times it appeared that randy orton who is 6'4 or 5 looked an inch taller than batista.
Jason said on 4/May/07
Eh Rob, why'd ya edit my post further down? It isn't libel when it's true. ;)
Jason said on 4/May/07
I've seen Coleman in the offseason at his all time highest weight and it was beyond belief. Biggest (muscular) human being I've ever seen bar none. It was on a beach and on the Jay Leno show I think, so try googling for the pics. He was 320lbs at the time -- I asked him on prosource.net about his heaviest ever weight.
Anonymous said on 3/May/07
Arjun, I agree about Coleman and how most body builders are very strong just not as much as most powerlifters. A weightlifter I consider someone in the middle of powerlifter and body builder.
Arjun said on 3/May/07
Coleman's a very strong dude too. Most bodybuilders are quite strong, but Coleman's strength rivals that of many powerlifters.
Alex said on 2/May/07
I've never seen Coleman in the offseason I don't think. He's huge in season so I can imagine the offseason. 255lbs for Coleman in season? I heard that too but really he's 280 plus in season on most sites.
Viper said on 2/May/07
Informer that list is off as well. Yokozuna 6-3? Al Snow 6-1? Rey Mysterio 5-4? Randy Savage 6-1?
Halb said on 2/May/07
On his own site Coleman say's he is 255 in contest weight. Which is 15lbs heavier than ArNold in Pumpin Iron.
Jason said on 2/May/07
I think Ted Washington is wider than either?
Viper said on 2/May/07
Coleman looks even bigger during the offseason. Have you seen his training videos Alex? Its nuts. Markus Ruhl is another incredible mass monster freak. Hes the widest human being ever. I saw this one video where he was grocery shopping and the looks on people's faces were crazy.
Alex said on 1/May/07
Batista could maybe be 6'3 in the morning out of bed then 6'2 at night, something like that. I'm 6'1 right out of bed and 6'0 by night by hover 6'0 1/4-6'0 1/2 in the midday.
Alex said on 1/May/07
Viper, Coleman is rediculous really. The guy is 5'10 if not a bit under and weighs 280-290lbs in season and over 300lbs offseason at only 5'10 tops. Guys like Batists who are taller look better. Arnold during his time I thought was good. His height arguable from 6'0-6'2 but I think 6'1 and weighing 240lbs in season and like 270-280lbs offeason was good for him because he was tall. Coleman is just a freak of nature and its really not desirable for anyone.
I think if you put Coleman and Batista together, Batista would look big but since Coleman is much shorter he'll look bigger. I know someone who is 5'6-5'7 and around my weight and he's actually a tad smaller than me but yet he looks my size or a bit bigger sometimes since he's so much shorter. Being short makes you look bigger easier.
Anonymous said on 1/May/07
Batista mostly looks the same height as HHH. Awkward angle, but take a look at their eye levels. Batista is almost looking up. Click Here
Viper said on 1/May/07
I beleive he could be 6-2.5 after the first minute he gets out of bed and down to 6-2 the rest of the day.

Personally, he has lost a little weight at least, not a lot though or I could be wrong. He says he ranges from 285-300lbs himself. He looked at least 280lbs, more probably when I met him a few months ago.
Alex said on 30/Apr/07
Alex R, Batista can look 6'5 in the ring or damn near it. I think he wears lifts sometimes, that or just gives the impression of being taller.
Viper said on 30/Apr/07
Alex R, Dave looked a flat 6-2 with a 6-4 1/2 basketball player in 3 seperate photos at different angles.
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
oh BTW, I don't have any new pictures but I'm really like the same as I was in the last few pics.
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
Danimal, my weight goes up and down. In the summer normally I am in between 190-195lbs, in winter 200ish. I have to work to get 205lbs plus or to get lower tahn 190lbs. I feel most comfortable at 195-205lbs at 6'0.5 but I did peak at 215lbs in early 2005 then dropped to 185lbs then worked my weigh back up to 195-200lbs. I been going to a gym for 4 years now. I am hoping maybe by next fall/winter I get get up to 220-225lbs.
Alex R said on 29/Apr/07
No, Dave is a big guy, hes at least 6'5 if not bigger, hes rumored at about 6'6''
Danimal said on 29/Apr/07
Alex, how big have you gotten bro? Haven't seen you post a pic of yourself in a while? I know you said you're about 200-205, but are you growing?
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
Anonymous, what did Batista do to make him so horrible? Really when I saw him there looking upset and not wanting to be there when I got to the table I was going to be like "Batista, you know I'm bigger than you right" then kinda flex. Then he would have stood up or said something. LOL
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
Vegas, I remember that with Tough Enough 3. All the kids who took on Angle got schooled but Puder goes in there and puts up a fight and almost has Angle tap.
Vegas said on 29/Apr/07
Bret was cool the night I met him. My friends have met him a few times since and they say the same thing. His kids and nephews (Dallas, Jade, Teddy) were just the nicest people.

As for Kurt Angle; Daniel Puder kinda destroyed the myth that Angle is still anywhere near his olympic medal winning conditioning. I think Angle is great but if he thinks he can live with the present stars of UFC/MMA; he might be in for a surprise.
Alex said on 28/Apr/07
Bret Hart I heard was nice too, even with him saying take care of whatever it shows he's on the nicer side. Like I said you gotta understand wrestlers can't just sit there and have a convo with you with a ton of people waiting in line. The least they can do is say a couple words or so. With Batista I didn't hear him say anything to anyone there, unlike with the other wrestlers I met they were actually talking to fans.
Anonymous said on 28/Apr/07
Batista was horrible in person, Flair is not much better. I have heard bad stories about Johnny Nitro (never met him though). Kid Kash and Chris Daniels I have met and I thought were really nice in person; not so in the dressing room where they treated the Irish Whip Wrestling guys and management like s**t according to a guy I know who is one of the top stars in that promotion; so you can never tell from meeting a person what they are really like i suppose. Shawn Michaels has always had problems with other wrestlers in the past backstage, but has come across as a decent guy in person (although I met him for only a few seconds)

Mick Foley and Bob Orton were really nice and down-to-earth in person. Candice Michelle and her hubby (then boyfriend) were so cool, but Torrie Wilson was a bit of a b***h, totally ignored us. Anyways its a bit hit and miss, some wrestlers are nice, some are total d**ks, thats life though
Jason said on 28/Apr/07
I saw a scathing article this afernoon about how Batista treated fans in the UK.....
Halb said on 28/Apr/07
Imperial (feet and inches) is a British thing, which is the legacy unit in the former parts of the Empire, with the USA now as the only country that uses it has the official units, everyone else uses SI, tho many ppl in Canada and UK still hold onto Imperial. This is my fave conversion page

Jason said on 28/Apr/07
I met Bret Hart at an autograph session. He was quiet and reserved, the only words he said to me were ''take care'' when I said thanks for signing my poster, so I guess he was nice lol.
Alex said on 27/Apr/07
Kurt Angle is a nice guy in person. He wasn't all jolly and so happy but he at least spoke to me for a bit but with these wrestlers when its an autograph session you don't have much time at all to talk since you got a line waiting. Nash, Hall and X-pac were nice. Big Show seemed ok even though I didn't get to talk to him. D-Von was a nice guy in person. Just Batista didn't seem so nice.
Viper said on 27/Apr/07
Also I would have never guessed Flair to be that way in a million years.
Jason said on 26/Apr/07
I think Vegas said Batista wasn't a nice guy. Him and Ric Flair ... and a couple others. I'm sure he'll fill you in...
Viper said on 26/Apr/07
Alex, thats pretty bad because they look like ungrateful ****s about all their success.
Jason said on 26/Apr/07
I prefer metric.
Alex said on 26/Apr/07
Question about Batista in general. Do you guys hear he's not the nicest person to meet. I told you when I met him a few months ago the look on his face gave me and other fans there that he just didn't wanna be there. With other wrestlers they all seemed more happier, more then he was for sure.

Also when I was on line there i was too bad I wasn't around the table area because someone behind me said that he walked right by them before they got on line so if I would have stayed by the table longer before getting on the back of the line I would have been right next to him. Than I heard people on line saying he's 6'5 but I was going to go tell them, no he's really like 6'3 or a bit shorter. But I tell you he looked at least around 280lbs sitting down.
Alex said on 26/Apr/07
The whole Cm thing most won't covert right, thats why its much better to say in feet/inches. To get 6'1 5/8 you must be using a very specific height chart or something.
Danimal said on 25/Apr/07
Alex, when you are Mexican, you write in cm. Most don't write in feet and inches. That's an american thing and most aren't american on this site.

Alex, if you want to do the conversion, it is simple. From kg to pounds, multiply the kg's by 2.204. Ex: 100kg * 2.204 = 220.4. As for height, you DIVIDE the cm's by 2.54. Many of you are not doing the conversion right. Example Viper. According to Mentors list Rock is 6'1 5/8" and not 6'1.5" as Viper thinks. 187cm equals 6'1 5/8".

What's also interesting is that Mentor has Hulk at 6'4 3/4", which may have been his height from the early 90's, after having already lost that 1 1/4" from surgery in 1990.
Alex said on 25/Apr/07
UT has Batista by 4 inches at the most. Looks 3-3.5 inches most of the time.
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
I think that Mexican mentor guy had an original list of wrestlers like Disco, ect. and just kept adding ones through the years. Thats how I see it.
Big Show said on 25/Apr/07
Viper says on 24/Apr/07
Big Show, It does say "since 1996", meaning it added wrestlers later on. Not that its just from 1996.

I think he meant that the list is from wrestlers who wrestled in the WWF or before and that he aquired the list in 1996. Did he add wrestlers on the list after he aquired it. Possible, still that wouldn't explain why Disco Inferno is on the list as he never wrestled in WWF. He also claims he only worked for a few years in the WWF, yet a lot of wrestler on that list started wrestling in the WWE long after 1996. And working for a company for 6 or 7 years, is not just a few years imo. But some might interpetrate the word 'few' different.
Arjun said on 25/Apr/07
On Smackdown last night, (Taker & Batista tag team) UT did'nt look too much taller than Batista. It's hard to tell because of the angles, but the few moments they were next to each other at a decent angle, UT had maybe 3 - 3.5 inches on 6'3"ish Batista. I really doubt he's over 6'7" now.
Cheers,
Arjun
Alex said on 25/Apr/07
Big Show, I agree. Really anyone could have just posted as that Mentor. Some younger kid could have or like you said someone already on here messing around. Really the only height on that list I buy is Austin pretty much. And plus he wrote in cms, not feet/inches like most would.
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
I can buy Luger at 6-2 1/4, so no that far off.
Alex said on 25/Apr/07
Some of the mentor's list I think is accurate or close to it. Austin one of the very few heights I can buy. The list has Andre The Giant at 7'4 yet Lex Luger at only 6'1.5. Thats why I don't buy most of that list. I hate when they say weights in kgs, lol. I'm not too good converting that to pounds.
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
"Undertaker at 6-6?" Yes, I can buy Taker at 6-6.
"The Rock at 6-1 1/2?" Close enough since I dont see him over 6-2.
"Goldberg at 6-1 1/4?" Certaintly. He looked 6-0 with Charles Barkley and hes the same height as Lesnar who is around 6-1 1/4 as well.
Jon said on 25/Apr/07
Wow, I saw 6'5" when I saw him at the Lakewood mall when RVD was holding autograph sessions. Lifts that day maybe? This was before he became a big star. Nobody recognized him, but I did because of his tattoos. The guy was huge all around though. Looked easily over 300 lbs.
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
Big Show, It does say "since 1996", meaning it added wrestlers later on. Not that its just from 1996.
Danimal said on 24/Apr/07
Halb, you are right. Claiming Backlund was only 5'9" is unrealistic. He was around the same height as Vince in 1980. He certainly did not lose 4-5" in 16 years.

As for guys like HBK, Bret Hart, The British Bulldog, Dean Malenko, Ric Flair, Eddy Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Jerry Lawler, Stone Cold, etc, I buy ALL of those heights. NONE of them were tall men. ALL under 6'0" and some by 4" or more.
Anonymous said on 24/Apr/07
Undertaker at 6-6? The Rock at 6-1 1/2? Goldberg at 6-1 1/4? I ain't buying that, although the list could be right on some persons, like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Many say's he actually is 6-0 without his boots, but that Mick Foley would be 6-0? He's at least 6-1 1/2, I think. The list could be right on some persons, but I ain't just buying it on some folks...
Big Show said on 24/Apr/07
That menthor's list is complete BS (as I've stated numerous times before), anyone who thinks it's legit is not really good in wrestling history. Anyone could have made up such a list (and in this case I think it's someone who just wanted to put a prank on us). But if one wants to fool us with such a list he really needs to do his homework a little bit better. He claims to be a menthor from WWF and that this list was in his hands since 1996. Maybe he could explain to me how it's possible that guys like Paul Wight, Rey Mysterio Jr. and DDP are on that list. None of them were in the WWF in 1996 or before and debuted years later in the WWF. Plus he mentions the wrestlers by their trademark names, yet does are incorrect either. The Rock was called Rocky Miavia when he debuted in November 1996. This list has probably countless errors which can exposed if you do a little research. Seeing as it's a fake you can take the listings with a grain of salt.
stone said on 24/Apr/07
he's 6ft4
Halb said on 24/Apr/07
That list seems bogus. 5'9 for Bob Backlund??
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
"No conveniently you pick and choose which wrestlers heights suits you from the list."

Hmm, So I cant pick and choose off a list that as a few wacky ones on there, but has others as being accurate or close to it. Vegas, please tell me you are playing a joke on us at this point.
Vegas said on 24/Apr/07
there was one photo of Noel and Batista or three altogether of Noel with Batista (wearing a black leather type jacket), with Booker T and with Teddy Long.

Viper says on 23/Apr/07
No Vegas, I dont beleive in all of that list

No conveniently you pick and choose which wrestlers heights suits you from the list. I could do the same, I always said Andre was 7'4 without the list and look he is 225cm on the list, oh goodie i was rite.

Viper of course you believe this list but you probably believe in Santa Claus and the Easter bunny too :)

That list is thrash and I am surprised both yourself and Jason are so easily fooled.
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
No vegas, there were 3 taken at different angles. ALL of them showed Batista as no more than 6-2. Not to mention the pictures with Arnold where Batista didnt even look 6-2. Supes, that makes PERFECT sense, since I peg Lesnar at 185-186cm and Rock at 188cm. Its all coming together now. John Cena 6-0, Lesnar 6-1, Batista 6-2 FLAT. Not to mention the pictures with Arnold where Batista didnt even look 6-2. This seems extremely accurate.
Jason said on 24/Apr/07
Yeah, 191cm was my estimate for Goldust without the list. 191cm is 6'3 1/4''. It has the Godfather at 6'3 1/2''. The weights are fantasy ... but maybe the list is legit and the weights are just the billed ones? I used to think this ''Mexican Mentor'' was having us on ... now I'm really not sure lol.
Alex said on 23/Apr/07
Goldust is 6'4-6'5. I lean toward 6'5 more.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
No Vegas, I dont beleive in all of that list, but I do think its close to accurate on a lot of them.
supes78 said on 23/Apr/07
Rob, check out 2:08 into this match with 6'2" Brock Lesnar and you'll see that Batista has atleast an inch over him;
Click Here
supes78 said on 23/Apr/07
No way is Batista less that 6'3". He was at eye level with the Rock in their match from a few years ago.
Vegas said on 23/Apr/07
Thats a hell of lot better list there Cobra than Mr Mexican menthor, although i disagree with Kane (no way over 6'7.5"), taker (6'7 peak, now less than 6'7 for sure), Hogan (6'4-6'4.5" peak and he has lost 1" max and that may just be due to his current poor posture more than anything else).

Viper there was "ONE" picture of Batista and 6'6 NBA listed David Noel not "three". But of course you claimed that Vader was just 1" taller than Austin when you saw this picture Click Here but one picture is never enough to judge someones height Click Here and Click Here

Batista was no shorter than 6'2.5" in person. But he was somewhere between 6'2.5"-6'3" or ~6'4 in shoes
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
Yeah, I figured it said 191cm for Goldust. I thought Danimal was crazy when he thought it said 6-2. I think a lot of those heights on that list are accurate, or close to being accurate Jason. The only one that is TOTALLY off the wall is Andre the Giant. I agree with 186cm for Goldberg and Triple H. Rock at 187cm is very close to the truth, since I peg him at 6-2 at best.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
I have a hard time beleiving Batista is 6-2.75 when he looked closer to 6-1.75 with a measured 6-4.5 basketball player in 3 seperate pictures.
Cobra said on 23/Apr/07
Batista is at least a full 6ft3, I would say 191cm.

The list below is completely ****
Taker at just 198 cm, but 148 kg???

Here is my list about a few Wrestlers:

Brock Lesnar: 6ft2/ 280 lbs
Batista: 6ft3/ 300 lbs at Evolution, now would say ~275 lbs
Orton: good 6ft4, good 225 lbs
Triple H: not sure, 6ft2 ~250 to 260 lbs
Goldberg: weak 6ft2,75, ~260 lbs
Lashley: 6ft1 ~270 lbs
Undertaker: peak 6ft8 ~close to 300 lbs, now maybe 6ft7, 275 lbs
Kane: 6ft8,5, around 300 lbs, nowadays a little less
Great Khali: 7ft1, close to 400 lbs
Big Show: peak shade over 7ft, now a shade under 7ft, between 400 and 490 lbs
Mark henry: 6ft1,5, weight 353 lbs (listings seems true or at least very close, as opposed to Umaga, Henry is much more impressive)
The Rock: good 6ft3, height varies; nowadays no more than 230 lbs
Andre Giant: peak good 6ft11 to a good 6ft9, weight maybe close to 500 lbs?
Hulk Hogan: peak 6ft5,5, nowadays 6ft3, 280 lbs to 260 lbs
Jason said on 23/Apr/07
Slaughter has shrunk, though. He was max 6'1 1/2'' when I saw him in 2003. He definitely used to be taller than that.
Vegas said on 23/Apr/07
mr mexican menthor has Owen Hart 2cm taller than his brother bret :D Scott Hall 9cm taller than Triple H; 22cm taller than the British Bulldog, 20cm than the Bret!!! Hulk hogan 11cm taller than Sgt Slaughter, hmmm i saw 1-1.5" at WM7. Thats an awful list, my granny could come up with a better one than that methinks.

Now i know why Viper is out so much, he took this list as legit.

Rob i agree with 190cm for Batista, could be 191cm though and yes I have met Batista in person.
