Arm size hardly determines overall size, though. Hogan's much more muscular than Shaq was then, but Shaq was a much bigger man in frame (bone) size. & I haven't seen this 7-1 listing for Big Show anywhere except for a ..... web article?
Alex said on 21/Nov/07
Vegas, I've read Wight was only 380lbs when he entered WCW then got up to around 400lbs in WCW. He ended up gaining a lot of weight before he entered WWF in 1999 then got down to 420-430lbs in 99-2000 then after that it just started to go up hill with a few weight loses but the weight came right back on after he lost it.
Vegas said on 21/Nov/07
this is probably the lightest wight ever wrestled at in September of 1995 Click Here compare that his late WWE stint, someone had a big belly, lol Click Here

compare that big show/hulk hogan video to how a 310lb shaq matched up to hogan just a year previous. Shaqs arms look tiny Click Here
Alex said on 21/Nov/07
Big Show at his lighest in WCW was still a little heavier than Shaq at his heaviest ever.
Vegas said on 21/Nov/07
if damon is 5'11 then dan marino is just slightly over 6'1 on flat ground and bob costas is about 5'3 seeing as he is closer to the camera lol Click Here

yes jason i know you think shaq is inches taller; that despite both being listed at 7'1 between 1990 and 1992 in college, then again you thought dalip singh was inches taller too and probably thought akebono would be the same height or taller before they met ;)
Viper said on 21/Nov/07
Kevin, I could turn what you said on its head and that the debate ends with the Damon picture. Batista looks 6-2 at the most with 6-0 at the most Johnny Damon. And I doubt Damon is even 6-0 to be perfectly honest.
Viper said on 21/Nov/07
Damon looks 5-11-6-0 with Derek Jeter. Click Here

This is a guy who was listed at 6-0 not long ago.

''the rock photo was a poor one seeing as he was so far from the camera. There is a good photo of shaq and rock together in a book i leafed through, probably rocks, it has him standing side by side shaq; about 8" or so shorter. i think this is a fairer comparison Click Here

there is also no way shaq was anywhere close to big show weight, not even his early WCW weight; if he was it makes his achievements and ability to get up and down the court simply unbelievable''



Yeah, but I think Shaq is inches taller. If they're around the same height, then I agree with you ... at least after Big Show's early days in WCW.
Kevin Durant said on 20/Nov/07
This end the debate and i personally think that Editor Rob should at least upgrade Batista to 6'3" because the Wade picture prove that Batista is no way under 6'3".
Viper said on 20/Nov/07
Ive always thought Soriano was 5-11 or just under it. And Batista next to him confirms my suspicion, lol. Regardless, comparing these wrestlers to baseball players is the worst since baseball players are fudged big time. NFL and NBA is the way to go.
Viper said on 20/Nov/07
Damon is 5-11. Originally he was listed at 6-0. Damon makes Batisa look 6-1-6-2.
supes78 said on 20/Nov/07
That Johnny Damon pic should be enough evidence to atleast put Batista at 6'3" since Damon had got to be minimum 6'1" even though he's list as 6'2".
Dave said on 20/Nov/07
personally i think that dalip is taller and much bulkier than shaq, the bulk is obvious, he must outweigh shaq considerably.... and i think hes possibly an incch taller. Also i think based on the wade evidence batista is every bit of 6'3.... he never looked under 6'3 to me. Also it figures as orton is about an inch taller, and i genuinely believe that orton is a solid legit 6'4
Alex said on 20/Nov/07
I think its too bad Big Show wasn't in WWE now to get a picture with Shaq backstage. Too bad Khali didn't either.

Shaq has 9-10 inches on Batista. Shaq still is probably over 300lbs.

Damon looks about 6'1 with Dan Marino. That making Batista looking about 6'3 or just under with him then.
Vegas said on 20/Nov/07

anonymous 1 said on 20/Nov/07
batista is 6,3.5" there you go.next to damon he has 2 inches on him.
Jason said on 20/Nov/07
2005? I meant when Shaq was at his biggest. He's looking skinnier there, but he's much bigger than 280lbs. I think even the Rock was slightly taller next to Shaq than Batista.
Vegas said on 20/Nov/07
he looks more in the 6'3 range actually jason; and shaq looks about 280lb there with batista. how big you reckon shaq's head is cause batista is up to his lower lip, khali looked as tall next to batista Click Here

i think your claim that shaq and big show were both 380lb in 2005 seems a bit off there looking at how skinny shaq is, maybe he lost 100lb lol.

If we compare shaq to ~6'4 dwayne wade, batista matches up very well Click Here and Click Here and Click Here
Jason said on 20/Nov/07
Batista looks 6'2'' with Shaq:

Click Here

There's also Shaq with Triple H & Rey Mysterio there.
Vegas said on 20/Nov/07
damon aint no 5" shorter than 6'4 Dan Marino Click Here
Derek said on 19/Nov/07
Batista with 6'2" listed Johnny Damon:

Click Here

Damon is no more than 6'0", but I think 5'11" and change is more likely.
Alex said on 15/Nov/07
I think now a lot of people here will agree Batista would be 6'3 at most.
Dan said on 13/Nov/07
I would put Batista at a strong 6'4" because JBL is 6'6" and the Undertaker is about 6'8". When you see Batista and the Undertaker standing next to each other there is about 4" difference. and, randy orton is listed at 6'4" and orton and batista are the same height.
Ben said on 9/Nov/07
Ive met abyss and he's 6'5 at the most, stood right next to him and checked it out. test looks taller, maybe 6'6...I'd give batista 6'3 tops
Alex said on 5/Nov/07
Test is taller than Batista. Batista is looking under 6'3 lately a lot. 6'2-6'2 1/2 most of the time. Test looks to be about 6'5.
Abyss gets listed at 6'10 but looks no more than 6'5.
The Essential Man said on 5/Nov/07
Is Batista the same height as Test? And does anyone know how tall is Abyss?
ted T said on 3/Nov/07
Batista has to be 190cm maybe or 6-2 because the Undertaker is about 14 cm taller,with lifts?who knows.
Viper said on 26/Oct/07
Ol Kevin Durant cant get his heights right, LOL.
Kevin Durant said on 26/Oct/07
Batista is 6'3" while JBL is a legit 6'6" or a minimum of 6'5" because he is at least 2-3" taller than Dave Batista.
Kevin Durant said on 26/Oct/07
I think Batista is a weak 6'4" while JBL is a legit 6'6" or a minimum of 6'5" because he is at least 2-3" taller than Dave Batista.
dave said on 25/Oct/07
And they bill Batista at 6'6''...I guess JBL is 6'9''. LOL.
JT said on 24/Oct/07
(Click Here) (Click Here) JBL did have cowboy boots on but Batista was wearing shoes with a good-sized heel
Alex said on 22/Oct/07
JBL did look 3-4 inches taller than Batista, but I think JBL has his boots giving a bit of an advantage sometimes.
Kevin said on 22/Oct/07
only 6'3, i really thought this guy was pretty tall at 6'5 (195cm) cause he really looks
Joshua said on 20/Oct/07
www.wwe.com there is video about JBL interviewing Batista and JBL looks CLEARLY taller!
anonymous said on 20/Oct/07
last night on smackdown jbl who,s 6,6" had batista by at least 4-5 inches.imo batista is probably around 6'2".
Alex said on 14/Oct/07
Danius I'm 6'0.25 and I can get away with 6'2 if I claimed it.
Danius said on 14/Oct/07
lol 5'9 getting away at 6'0. The most I've gotten estimated is 5'10, on a regular basis 2
Alex said on 13/Oct/07
Eddie was about 5'8 I think or just under.
dave said on 12/Oct/07
I think Eddie was even 5'7.5 and had some help in his boots.
Alex said on 12/Oct/07
Ghost, I thought Benoit was 5'10 and even 5'11 at a point years ago. But really he's 5'9 at most. He's a good inch shorter than 5'10 Kurt Angle and was a bit taller than Eddie Guerrero who is no more than 5'8.
Ghost said on 9/Oct/07
What do you base that on, Alex?
Alex said on 8/Oct/07
Benoit was 5'9 if he was lucky.
Dave said on 8/Oct/07
benoit was 5'8 at the BARE minimum.... i still insist the man was almost 5'10, he just looked short because of his body proportions, he had the torso and head of a 6 footer, and the limbs of a 5'7 er.... but i think he was pushing 5'10, and he was no way under 5'8
Viper said on 7/Oct/07
I would expect Kevin Durant to have 7 inches on Batista.
Kevin Durant said on 4/Oct/07
Former NBA player Dana Barros was listed at 5'11 in the NBA Website for many years. But he admitted that he is only 5'9 after the Celtics sign him in the mid 1990's.

You know what? I'm not 6-foot. I'm not even 5-11. I'm 5-9." Dana Barros

Alex said on 4/Oct/07
Viper, yea. Now some people say when you're leaner/skinnier you look taller but then some say with a more bigger build, muscular or whatever you tend to look taller. It can work both ways but more often a skinnier guy can look taller.
Viper said on 3/Oct/07
5-9 can look kinda tallish from a distance with the right build.
Alex said on 2/Oct/07
5'9 looking 6'0? Thats rare. I could see 5'10-5'11 getting away with 6'0 but 5'9 is crazy though.
PauLLL said on 2/Oct/07
I'm 6' 4 1/2", Wingspan is about 6'9" and barefoot reach, I can get my hands flat on my 8' ceiling. About 8' 3-4".
Big M said on 2/Oct/07
I'm 5'9 but people tell me that i look like 6 ft.
Someone said on 30/Sep/07
I'm 6'4" and my wingspan is 6'8" and my standing reach is barefoot, is 8'5". I seems to have long arms, is it the case?
Alex said on 27/Sep/07
Benoit did look an inch shorter than Angle who is 5'10 but Benoit may have had a little more in his boots. He's minimum 5'8-5'8.5. Can look 5'9 though.
ted said on 27/Sep/07
Danimal what is your estimation about Mr Kennedy's height?Thanks.
JT said on 27/Sep/07
Benoit looked at least 5'9" to me. He was slightly shorter than 5'10" Angle. Benoit had really short legs, which may have created the impression that he was shorter than he really was.
Vegas said on 27/Sep/07
7'8 standing reach barefoot and without tip-toes at 5'10.5" is not bad. its more than my brother and he is 5'11.5"-5'11.75. Wingspan is a bit short though, should be more in the 6'3 region i suspect
Big T said on 27/Sep/07
I'm 5'10 1/2'' and my standing reach is a mere 7'8'', do I have short arms?? :(

Wingspan is 6'0 1/2"
Vegas said on 27/Sep/07
benoit always looked 5'10-5'10.5" in wrestling boots to me. He was always around 2" taller than Eddie who was surely no shorter than 5'7???
Alex said on 27/Sep/07
Benoit was at least 5'8 I think, but not less though. He was short but not that short though.
Danimal said on 26/Sep/07
Also, Benoit, was at most 5'8".
Danimal said on 26/Sep/07
Kevin that list is RIGHT ON THE MONEY friend. Nice going buddy. The only person I would lower is Bret Hart to 5'11". Aside from that, spot on. What I do find peculiar though is that you gave Andre a peak height, but Hogan his current (shortened) height?
Alex said on 26/Sep/07
I agree with JK. 6'1 for Henry but no more though.
Viper said on 26/Sep/07
I pretty much agree with Ted, though I dont think Lesnar is as high as 6-1 3/4. More 6-1 1/4.
Kevin Durant said on 26/Sep/07

Vegas said on 26/Sep/07
better watch this video so Ted; Triple H and 6'2-'6'3 barefoot Will Sasso Click Here

lesnar is no 1.75" taller than Mark henry (its 1" max, might be less) why is everyone downgrading henry all of a sudden without one shred of evidence (ted wants bobby lashley at 5'9-5'10, not gonna happen mate)??? IMO Henry is 5'4 :D

Alex; Mark Henry weighed 366lbs in barcelona in 1992, he looks bigger now.
ted said on 26/Sep/07
The true heights:

Mark Henry:6ft
Brock Lesnar:6-1,75
HHH:6-1,25(186cm)
Batista:6-2
Anonymous said on 26/Sep/07
The funny thing is, TNA first billed angle 5'10 and then increased his height.

i think Rhyno went from 5'10 to 6'2 in their listings as well.
Viper said on 26/Sep/07
I give henry a solid 6-0.
Danimal said on 25/Sep/07
Alex, they billed 5'9" Davey Boy Smith at 6'3". Now that is REALLY ridiculous.
Alex said on 25/Sep/07
JT, 6'1 looks right for Henry. That makes Lesnar barely 6'2 if that or just under and makes UT 6'6, 6'6.5 at most.
Alex said on 25/Sep/07
At least in TNA Angle is listed at 6'0. 5'10 being billed at 6'0 aint too bad but at 6'2 its just rediculous. Even when I was 15-16 when Angle first came into WWF I never bought the 6'2. I thought 5'11-6'0 for several years.
JT said on 25/Sep/07
Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

Henry looks like a solid 6’1”.
Danimal said on 24/Sep/07
Really Ted? Then how did they get away with 6'2" for Angel, when he was measured at 5'10"-5'11" at the 1996 Olympics?
ted said on 24/Sep/07
That's true anonymous but Henry was measured at 6-1 in the Olympics,so they couldn't billed him at 6-3.
Alex said on 24/Sep/07
He looks close to the 400lb mark or probably at it now. Suprised they don't bill him at 425lbs at least.
Jason said on 24/Sep/07
He is billed as 6'3'' and 6'4'' at some places.
Anonymous said on 24/Sep/07
I've never understood why Henry is billed 6'1, which is probably his legit height. He could easily get away with 6'3 or something (espacially with Batista being billed 6'5).
Jason said on 24/Sep/07
I didn't know his knees were shot. He needs to lose some serious weight if so ... well, he needs to do that, anyway lol.
Jason said on 23/Sep/07
He looks like a 184cm (6'0 1/2'') guy to me.
Vegas said on 23/Sep/07
I don't think Henry is taller than 6'1; his boots are bigger these days than say 1998. It probably has to do with cushioning his knees (both are a mess)
JK said on 23/Sep/07
I think Mark Henry is taller than 6'1''
Alex said on 22/Sep/07
And Mark Henry is 6'1.
Vegas said on 22/Sep/07
batista was just over 1" taller than Henry Click Here

Mark henry's boots look very large though to me, batista was in dress shoes with a heel
JK said on 22/Sep/07
Mark Henry looked same height or an inch taller than Batista on Smackdown
hannah said on 21/Sep/07
Here's two pics of Batista withe the Ying Yang Twins. I have no idea how tall either of them are though. Click Here
Da Man said on 19/Sep/07
Taker slouches like crazy next to Batista.
Dylan said on 19/Sep/07
I saw Batista a few months ago face to face with the Undertaker, who is no shorter than 6'7...Batista was not anymore than 3 inches shorter.

''yeah, i can't remember whether is was 6'10 or 6'11 he said, 6'10 i think. I thought he was BS me the whole time but when he stretched out his arms for the first time i thought he was going to fly away, lol. I didn't believe him on the hand thing either for a long while till one night when a gang of us compared hand sizes in a bar for some unknown reason

My wingspan is close to 6'3, must measure again to see if certain times of the day affect wingspan

Marco Killingsworth is 6'5'5 and his wingspan is 7'3, Renaldo Balkman who is just a hair over 6'5 has a wingspan of 7'1, Eric Hicks is 6'4.75 and his is 7'1.5; there are also quite a number of 6'7ers with wingspans of 7'4.5" there Click Here''




Yeah, don't doubt it about your friend ... just saying that is monstrous. I look like a 747 when I stand up with my arms outstretched and I don't go no 6'10'' arm span. His knuckles must scrape his knees lol. Not sure about some of those NBA arm spans, though. Possible, but they add a few inches in boxing ... the same thing would happen to some extent in b-ball.
Derek said on 14/Sep/07
Viper- I'm not sure what my wingspan is, but considering I can touch a 10' rim from a standing position and grab rim off one foot, I'm sure it's more than my height. Maybe 6'4"-6'5", though I'm not totally sure.
Alex said on 14/Sep/07
I gotta check my standing reach actually.

6'10''-6'11''???? That's monsterous lol. Lennox Lewis' is 6'10''!
Viper said on 13/Sep/07
Vegas my standing reach is about the same as yours, might be a tad shorter and Im over 4 inches taller than you. My arms are only 28-30 inches.
Vegas said on 13/Sep/07
whats your wingspan Derek?? Your friend of 6'5 has the same standing reach as you; <8'0?? thats really really short for a guy that tall.

As i said my standing reach barefoot (no tip-toes) at 5'11 is just a hair over 7'10 and i don't have long arms. My mate who is 6'3 has incredibly long arms, huge hands, feet, neck; his wingspan is 6'10-6'11 and I would assume his standing reach would be well into the mid 8 foot range.
Viper said on 13/Sep/07
Jordan supposedly has a 8-10 reach at 6-5 or a shade under.
Derek said on 12/Sep/07
Viper- Those reaches can't be accurate. How can someone an inch taller than me have a 1 foot advantage in reach? I actually have the same reach as my 6'5" friend, so there is no way a 6'3" guy can have a near 9'0" reach. No way. There is not a jacket or dress shirt in the world that could fit him unless someone makes the shirt themselves.

giant midget- 1)I lose 3/4"-1", so I lose no less than the average person. 2)That remains to be seen. 3)Definitely agree. Long legs combined with a thin frame can really deceive most people. 4)I don't know about that one.
Alex said on 12/Sep/07
I forgot where I mentioned it but I was asking about sneaker heels. A sneaker with a 1.5 inch heel will give you 1.5 inches to your height right. Same for an inch or 1.25 inches? I think it does or just under. Like 1.25 inch sneaker heels will give you an inch to your height at least.
ER. said on 12/Sep/07
Alex, for some odd reason I've always figured a 32" inseam was short for someone in the 5-11 - 6-0+ range. Don't know why. Just always did.
Mr. E said on 12/Sep/07
ER, you're right I'm 5'11" and have a 34 inseam, my dad is 6'3" and has a 30. The milk man has a 34....hmmmmm.....Does Bastista have some monster lifts? His boots looked pretty normal and Taker's looked flat, not like the ministry days. He measured up well to Taker, but Ross will call him 6'5" to 6'6".
giantmidget said on 12/Sep/07
It's kind of funny to come here and find out a guy who's been billed at a huge 6'5" for years is actually the exact same height as me, especially when I always knew in the back of my mind there was no way he was that tall. Not unlike Triple H.

And yeah, Derek, that's pretty unusual. Not freakish, but unusual. In fact, my inseam's also 36", and I've gotten comments on my disproportionately long legs. But hey, I think it's better to have long legs/short torso than to have the alternative, for a couple reasons:
1) You probably lose less height throughout the day.
2) You probably won't lose as much height as you age.
3) It makes you appear taller.
4) It could mean you have the potential for more growth in the spine.

That's just a guess.
Alex said on 11/Sep/07
Yea 32 inseam is the average for guys 5'11-6'2 probably. I was wearing a 34 insesam since I was 5'9-5'10.
Viper said on 11/Sep/07
After seeing the supposed standing reaches of NBA guys, your arms would be short in the NBA Derek. Smush Parker is 6-2 1/2 and supposedly has a 8-11 1/2 standing reach. No way I buy that.
Viper said on 11/Sep/07
32 inseam would be average for 6-0-6-2. 34 on the long side. And 36 being on the freak side.
ER. said on 11/Sep/07
A 36" inseam at 6-2 is long, if not very long. At 6-2 1/2 I have a 35" inseam and get alot of comments about how long my legs are. People are just built differently I guess. My mother, for example, who is 5-9 1/2, has longer legs than my 6-0 dad. Then again a 6-0 1/2 friend of mine has only a 32" inseam.
JT said on 11/Sep/07
Big Show’s legs looked longer when he was 100+ lbs. lighter. With 6’3” NFL defensive lineman Kevin Green Click Here and 6’3” Lex Luger Click Here Even in recent years, his legs looked as long or longer than 6’7”-6’8” Kane’s Click Here Click Here The length of his upper body is way out of proportion though.
Derek said on 10/Sep/07
Viper- I have basically no torso. My arms are also very long. I can almost touch my 8'0" ceiling without tiptoes. My dad is 2 inches taller than me and we have about the same reach, maybe even a bit shorter than mine.
Alex said on 10/Sep/07
Rock I would think would be at least a 34 inseam. I'm a 34 inseam at least, could wear a 36 if I wanted but comes a bit too long. And Rock is taller than me.
Vegas said on 10/Sep/07
my brother has a 34" inseam and he is 5'11.5-5'11.75. He also takes a full 2 sizes (UK size) bigger in shoe than me. My barefoot standing reach is about 2" taller than his though, i got to 7'10.3" the other day.
AAAA said on 10/Sep/07
I'm 6'2 with a 33-34in inseam. I like to wear pants lower than your supposed to, but I think mine is pretty average?
Alex said on 9/Sep/07
Vegas, yea it was tough to me to say too but I figured easily over 400lbs but him not standing makes you not get a good estimate.
Alex said on 9/Sep/07
For a guy near or at 7'0 with normal proportions then easily a 40-42 inseam but Big Show is more torso then legs.
Alex said on 9/Sep/07
Derek, a 36 inseam at 6'1.5-6'2 is long. I am a 34 inseam at least and I'm 6'0-6'0.5 but I also have long legs but not not very long. I got a friend who is 6'3 and wears a 32 insesam but he's more torso which explains why but my 6'5 friend has a 36 inseseam and says a 38 inseam he can wear too.
Viper said on 9/Sep/07
Derek, you just have some freaky long legs man. Wight's inseam is probably between 36-38. I figure Rock's inseam is between a 32-34.
Vegas said on 9/Sep/07
i am even starting to wonder if Wights legs are even as long as 38". Here is he with Vince and Rock. Their legs are as long as Wights Click Here Of course they legs being as long as Wights totally rules out suggestions that Wight is wearing lifts there unless he has really really short legs.....

leg length is weird though. My dad legs are 2" shorter than mine yet I am 8" taller than him. My brother has 3" longer legs than me but he only about 0.5" taller than me.
Vegas said on 9/Sep/07
hard to tell heavy Show is in your photo Alex, between 400-425lb would be my guess but we would need a full length shot to have a better look.
Derek said on 9/Sep/07
38 inch inseam? I'm a 36. Show must have extremely short legs for his height. Granted I have very long legs for my height, but wouldn't you think a guy near 7'0" has an inseam well in the 40s?
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
Vegas, how heavy does Big SHow look in the picture I posted.
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
Big Show I can bet is only a 38 inseam. I remember reading somewhere where he said his pants were 50X38. Remember he's more torso than legs.
Vegas said on 8/Sep/07
According to this graphic he was 220kg against Sapp Click Here

he def looks smaller against sapp than against Bonjasky a year later, but 10-20kg on a guy as gigantic as akebono is nothing, in the past he probably gained and lost a few kilos over a single dinner session, lol.

He weighed in at 213kg (212.9kg to be exact) for his last MMA fight in December 2006 against Giant Silva btw

here is akebono lately looks to have lost close to 100lb there Click Here
JT said on 8/Sep/07
The weigh in had to be rigged to ensure that Akebono was heavier than Big Show. He does look around 450 lbs. in Vegas's pic.

Big Show's legs are relatively short for his height but it's b/c his sweats are looser fitting in that pic. He probably has no less than a 38 inch inseam.

It looks like Big Show has your friend by close to 18 inches. Of course she’s part of what is now an international conspiracy and is actually only 5’2” since we all know Big Show’s true height :)
Danimal said on 8/Sep/07
Guys, this Big Show is 7'0" or damn near close to it. At his heaviest, I see him at 515-530 pounds. People underestimate that he is at least a FOOOOT taller than most men and about 4 times as wide.
Jason said on 8/Sep/07
Akebono weighed in at 440lbs against Sapp on 31st December 2003 ... about 200kg exactly. He looked astronomically fat in that fight.
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
Vegas, he looks close to 450lbs there in the picture you posted.
Vegas said on 8/Sep/07
in this photo taken on March 31 2006 i estimated Wight at between 440-450lb Click Here he might have put on a few pounds between that and December 2006 but i doubt he ever hit 500lb legit. Wight was def heavier there and when i had met him in August 2002.

one interesting thing i didn't notice before in that picture, Wights legs are the same length as my 5'7 friend are, wow. Now i know girls legs are longer than guys but that freaking amazing.
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
I posted this once before. Its the picture I had taken with me, my friend and Big Show back in May 2003. He's sitting down so its not the best to judge by but when I saw him he looked 440-450lbs.

Click Here
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
The heaviest Big Show got to was in late 2006 probably which was around 500lbs. In 1999 he said on Howard Stern he weighed 420lbs and was billed at 500lbs, sounds honest to me since he could have just said his billed weight was his real weight. The following year he said he was a legit 430lbs. On Conan in 2003 he said 450lbs then in 2004 500lbs.
Vegas said on 8/Sep/07
Jason go back and check Akebono's K1 matches in late 2004 just before WM21 like this one Click Here there he weighs in at 230kg. Akebono competed in Sumo between 517 and 540lb. Akebono has lost a ton of weight since April 2005, he is about 430lb max today, the overhanging belly that was clearly evident at WM21 has almost disappeared; he had to lose to the weight because in k1 he has the mobility of a tree. Expect to see him get down as far as 350lb in a few years.

Dave; i have serious doubts Wight was 497lb at WM21, Wight was at his biggest a year later in 2006 for sure and i doubt he hit anywhere near 497lb by that point either.
Jason said on 7/Sep/07
500+? He fought Bob Sapp at around 450 and didn't seem any bigger at Wrestlemania.
Alex said on 7/Sep/07
I met Wight in 2003 and he looked at least around 450lbs. I posted the picture with him before.
dave said on 7/Sep/07
I dont think they faked the weigh in Vegas. Big show checked in at 490 while Akebono was tippin the scales at 510.

Jason,

I met Steven Richards and he looks massive to me. He got a 235 listing from WWE, just goes to show you how bulky Batista really is, but he has lost weight so 265 is the absolute lowest for him.
vegas said on 7/Sep/07
by April 2005 Wight was least 440-450lb, he matched up quite well with the 500lb+ Akebono. Akebono didn't have him by any more than 50lb from my viewpoint.

Show was def lighter alrite when i met in August 2002 in comparison to my last meeting with him in April 2006, (and alot lighter, maybe 40lb)
Jason said on 7/Sep/07
380-maybe 420 ... man, I couldn't tell to a smaller range with good certainty with someone that big and with gigantism. He really could have been anywhere in there depending. I expected he was gonna be like 470, but I could tell he wasn't that or near at least.

Batista 240? Oh, I didn't think that. That's another guy in the thread at bodybuilding.com I linked to who said he met Batista and estimated 245 I was referring to.
vegas said on 7/Sep/07
Jason you did say Paul Wight looked 380lb to you in person and that Wight and Shaq were the same weight in 2004, so i am having a hard time believing your weight estimations...

For sure Batista wasn't under 280lb in when i saw him three and a half years ago. Today i dunno but i seriously doubt as low as 240lb
Alex said on 7/Sep/07
Well he guessed 270lbs for Batista, I could live with that as Batista appears to be his lighest I've seen him in years. I do think he was pushing 300lbs when he was in OVW and when he first came to WWE. The even changed his billed weight from 318lbs to 300lbs then to 290lbs. Shows he has lost weight.
Jason said on 7/Sep/07
Vegas, you have to keep in mind ''smaller'' doesn't necessarily mean lighter. Batista is twice as big (in terms of musculature) as a regular big dude of whatever his height and weight is because it's all muscle, as he almost has the bodyfat level of an olympic sprinter.
Jason said on 7/Sep/07
Dave, somehow, I think the 250-260lb man in the thread can guess Batista's real weight better than you can. ;)
Viper said on 6/Sep/07
Noel has more height over Batista than that supposed 6-4 dude.
vegas said on 6/Sep/07
when i met batista in march 2004 he was nowhere near 245lb. I thought easily 280-285lb. Batista was wearing a light dress shirt that day. My mate who was around 260lb at the time was smaller than him for sure.

photos like that are deceiving though. I look bigger than Chris Daniels in a photo yet Daniels looked slightly bigger than me in person
Alex said on 6/Sep/07
Dave, I agree 275lbs, maybe 280lbs today. You gotta see the guy in person to see how big he is really. I do think he was heavier a couple years ago though, closer to 300lbs, 290lbs probably.

245lbs is crap for Batista, I'd never buy into that. Lowest possible would be 270lbs.
dave said on 6/Sep/07
Batista does look in the 275-280 range.

Jason...arent you the one who thought Big show was 6'7, Khali was 6'9, and JBL 6'2.5?
Jason said on 6/Sep/07
Can't see Batista having 20lbs on that guy. They look like they'd be similar in weight IMO. Another guy in that thread who said he met Batista estimated him as low as 245. I thought 260ish.
Alex said on 6/Sep/07
He's right about Batista being lighter today. Today I would guess 270-280lb range but some years ago 300lbs would have been likely.
Alex said on 6/Sep/07
Batista looks under 6'3 there with the 6'3-6'4 guy. 6'2 1/2 would be my guess too. He isn't 300lbs but he's easily heavier than that guy by at least 20lbs heavier and the guy's profile says he weighs 260lbs though. Either way Batista looks 275lbs minimum there.
Jason said on 5/Sep/07
Actually, he has 6'3'' on his profile page, so he likely might not even be the full 6'4''.
Jason said on 5/Sep/07
Click Here

Thread there of a 6'4'' bloke who met Batista and got a pic with him -- Batista appears ~ 6'2 1/2''. Nowhere near 300lbs, though; the guy in the pic is 250 and estimated Batista is 265-270.

Randy is also not adopting a military type posture beside batista like david noel is.

We all know David Noel is a measured 6'6 in shoes; that puts taker at 6'9 (roughly) in the sneakers he is wearing in this photo http://tinyurl.com/2ola2j i assumed Sharmelle was wearing bigger heels in the David Noel photo so I made her a few inches taller.
Viper said on 27/Aug/07
"Spencer Haywood was measured at 6'11 3/4 with out shoes and 7'1 with shoes in the 2001 NBA Draft ). Spencer Haywood wear a 2.25 " Air Sox in his NBA Pre Draft Measurement to appear as a 7'1."

Thats only a one inch advantage man. They dont make sneakers at 2.25 inches. At most 1.5 inches. Noel is anywhere between 6-5 and 6-6 in shoes.
Air Attacker said on 26/Aug/07
Sometimes i do not trust NBA Players more than Prowrestlers because most of them can wear shoes that is at least 2.25 inches ( Spencer Haywood was measured at 6'11 3/4 with out shoes and 7'1 with shoes in the 2001 NBA Draft ). Spencer Haywood wear a 2.25 " Air Sox in his NBA Pre Draft Measurement to appear as a 7'1.

Josh Smith and Al Harrington is atleast as tall as 6'7" and alnmost 2 inches taller than 6'5 3/4" Josh Childress who wears big shoes(6'7 1/4" in shoes)

Noel is 6'4 1/2, well at least thats what the site has him measured at but really that guy I thought was 6'5-6'6 looking at him at first.
Alex said on 26/Aug/07
Batista doesn't look no 6'3 there I do agree on. 6'2 1/2 if he was lucky there.
Ashley looks under her 5'5 listing too. More like 5'3 there.
Viper said on 26/Aug/07
6-4 1/2 Noel looks to have 3 inches on Batista here. Click Here The top of Batista's head doesnt even quite reach the top part of Noel's forehead. If Batista stood a little straighter he would look a full 6-2. But 6-2 1/2 or 6-3 is way out of the question here.
Viper said on 26/Aug/07
And the evidence with Noel overrides any evidence with Stone Cold, since we really dont know Stone Colds exact barefoot measurement. Stone Cold could be as short as 5-11 1/2 anyway.
Viper said on 26/Aug/07
"I think Batista is a legit 6'3 one of the reason that he look smaller in the David Noeh picture is because he was not wearing his shoes in the locker room. So David Noel plus his rubber shoes can look at least 6'6 in his sneakers."

Oh give me a break. That picture wasnt in a locker room. Batista had street clothes on, wearing a leather coat no less. Some of you guys must be huge Batista fanboys.
Alex said on 26/Aug/07
Noel I thought was 6'5-6'6 to begin with. Looks taller than 6'4 1/2.
6'3'' JK said on 26/Aug/07

Batista is the king from wwe and he is very strong,but anabolica

Austin is really 6'0, not 6'1 and that puts Batista at 6'3 tops there, more likely 6'2 1/2.
Air Attacker said on 24/Aug/07
I found a new picture of Batista and Stonecold Steve Austin together. IMO, Jason and Viper are wrong again because Batista look like 6'3-6'3 3/4 and he is at least 2 inches taller than 6'1 Stonecold Steve Austin.

I say Batista can look 6'4 maximum in a good day.
Alex said on 23/Aug/07
Batista is no more than 6'3 He could be that and his muscular frame may take the height away from him.
Ghost said on 23/Aug/07
Taker did have like 3 inches on Batista and Bastista probably wore big lifts during their fued so that he wouldn't look small.

I think he is about 6'2,5.
Jason said on 22/Aug/07
I didn't see no 6'3'' Batista. He was in dress shoes also, and I was in b-ball shoes.
6'3'' JK said on 22/Aug/07
He looks 6'5'' in his boots obviously, but He is 6'3'' in reality he was just an inch taller than 6'2'' Triple H face to face
Viper said on 22/Aug/07
No wonder you think Rock is 6-3 Dave.
dave said on 21/Aug/07
Batista cant be anything under 6'3'' because he matches up well with the Undertaker in staredowns (2.5 inch difference max). I think he's 6'3 barefoot and a shade over 6'5 in his thick soled boots.
Alex said on 18/Aug/07
Batista has a 6'6 cardboard cutout and Rock has a 6'5 one. I bought a Rock one back in 1999 at the old WWE NY in NYC and it measured at 6'2 1/2 even though they said it was 6'2. That cutout was about his real height.
Viper said on 18/Aug/07
Batista was listed at 6-7 no less. Ive seen a 6-6 listing for Rock as well.
l0ck n l0ad said on 17/Aug/07
lol how can batista get listed for 6'6" when he's not even 6'3", even the rock was only billed at 6'5" when he's only 6'2"ish, now batista is no taller than the rock so how ridiculous must be that 6'6" listing !!! oh wait they probably they took a 'barefoot measurement' of batista's cardboard cutout to get that 6-6 lol.
Alex said on 16/Aug/07
They come every several months. YOu have 3 main arenas in the NY/NJ area but they come to MSG 1-2 times a year or something. It depends.

''Jason is 100 percent correct on Batista's height Id say. 6-2 1/4 max. And Batista can look shorter than that at times.''


Actually, you just could be right on him being 6'1 3/4'' or something, if he's always getting a boost from his footware. He seemed stumpier than I expected - not as long as he looks on TV and pics.
Jason said on 15/Aug/07
Alex says on 14/Aug/07
''Jason, when did you say you were coming to NYC anyway?

My estimate of Batista is 6'2.5-6'3 and 280lbs. He looked 275lbs minimum and 290lbs maxium but 280lbs seems most accurate I think. This is when I met him last Novemeber. His site said he varies between 275-295lbs depending on his diet.''


I'm sorry, I was meaning to reply to you on the general chat lol. I may be in New York more than once next year -- possibly even very late this year. I'll let you know. We could all go to the wrestling lol. Have you been up to Sleepy Hollow before? I see, looking on Google Earth, that it's not too far from New Rochelle.

I saw enough of Batista to peg him at a solid 6-2 (6-2 1/4). He seems stockier/squatter close up in person. Though there's no way he's just 6'1''.

Mike Tenay's an announcer.
JohnP said on 14/Aug/07
Vegas; yeah, there must have been something that had to do with it. Perhaps Flair had bigger boots than Batista or something? Because I can't possibly think that Batista is only 6-1. Unless he recently shrunk or something, lol.

Both height and weight can be exaggerated in the NFL. About the only sport the listed heights and weights seem to be 100% legit is professional rugby.

Pacman is 5-9-5-9 1/2. I beleive he was measured at 5-9 1/2 tops. He can look shorter than that though. Pacman would be a good measuring stick. Too bad hes not in the WWE.

for the rey mysterio topic;

Click Here

Around 3:40, rey admits hes 5'4 when comparing himself to nash, and im sure this is fairly accurate, id give him a 5'3, he prob upgraged himself a little.
Vegas said on 13/Aug/07
I saw that too JohnP; though when Flair made his debut on Smackdown in June there was a great full length video of the two of them in the back and batista was approx 3.5"-4" taller.

Few observations watching TNA. At last nights pay-per-view Kurt Angle was listed at 6'1 and Samoa Joe at 6'2 in the tale of the tape on screen. Joe was at least 3" shorter than Bubba Ray Dudley last thursday when the two had a argument face-to-face.

Matt Morgan was given as 7 foot on Impact last thursday.

Andrew Martin (Test) was the same height as Abyss and approx 3" taller than Sting

Pacman jones made his debut last night (i was expecting a giant of a man) and he was tiny both height and weight wise. He stood in the ring with Mike Tenay (Tenay is listed at 5'8 btw) and Tenay was 2" taller. The NFL have Jones at 5'10 and 187lb, well if that is the case Tenay is 6ft and 200lb.
Viper said on 12/Aug/07
Has Batista shrunk to 6-1?
JohnP said on 11/Aug/07
Batista didn't look much taller than Flair on this weeks SmackDown!.

He looked to have perhaps 2 inches on him.

Since some people claims Flair is 5-11 max, then that sure wouldn't have made Batista look 6-3.
Viper said on 10/Aug/07
Vegas, Its interesting how Jason says Kane looked 6-5, but also you said he looked 6-6 initially. Usually very tall guys are going to look even taller at times, especially If Kane is over 6-8 like some say. You would think he would be looking 6-9 plus or something.
Vegas said on 10/Aug/07
right around the 300lb mark he said, 305lb if i remember correctly.

he also said he spotted jacobs benching 540 pounds one time but these days he cannot get over 500 pounds
Da Man said on 10/Aug/07
What did the guy say Kane weighed?
Vegas said on 10/Aug/07
Da Man; kanes training partner in knoxville contacted me through youtube. I had been saying on my video that i thought kane was 6'7 or so and he queried me on that point because he claimed he measured and weighed him a couple of months ago in their gym

Anyone who wants to get in contact with the guy Click Here
6'3'' JK said on 9/Aug/07
Between Kane and Ben i see exact 2.5 inches, maybe pushing 3'' tops or maybe not, come on Viper you can't say there is a lesser difference than 2.5 inches tops
hmm yeah said on 9/Aug/07
kane wears huge boots,he's like 6 ft 8 and thats with them on u can tell,just check out royal rumble 2003 when he's standing next to taker before he gets thrown out(by taker).He looks shorter than taker or about the same height at the most.Oh and another thing when him n matt go up to each other on rr 2004,the camera angle changes so it's from below to obviously make kane look bigger than matt morgan.wwe always make up bullsh*t heights for kane and undertaker. like undertaker was supposedly 6 ft 10,but nathan jones really was that height. matt morgan looked about the same size as nathan jones though. so yeah.
Da Man said on 9/Aug/07
There's no doubt in my mind that there is more than 2" between Kane and Roethlisberger in their pic together. I see 2.5" minimum and 3" is very likely IMO. I still maintain that Ben's cap riding on top of his very large hair are throwing some people's estimations off.

Vegas, how did you contact Jacobs' training partner? It's interesting that he claims to have measured Jacobs at 6'8.2", since that 6'8.5" figure keeps coming up.
Vegas said on 9/Aug/07
Viper; some people will see 3" between kane and ben there and some people will see 2" (its somewhere between those figures anyway). Kane is 6'7 imo even though his training partner in knoxville assures me he measured kane at 6'8.2 barefoot and 6'9 in shoes just a few weeks ago.

Jason i have the royal rumble 2004 (just the rumble part) and at no time does Morgan and Kane stare each other down (kane chokeslams morgan but thats it). Do they face off earlier or something prior to the rumble??

Speaking of Matt Morgan i found these last night Matt played center for Chaminade Silverswords and was listed at 6'10 there Click Here here is a pic of morgan playing ball Click Here There is also a pic of Morgan next to a guy who claims to be 6'2.5 on Big shows page (Morgan looks 6'8.5-6'9 in it)

Two other wrestlers played center for their respective universities
Kevin Nash Click Here
Paul Wight Click Here

I did a little digging to see what current NBA centers were listed at in college, surprisingly they were listed at the same height in college as in the NBA; Shaq was listed at 7'1 in college, Christian Laettner at 6'11, Alonzo Mourning at 6'10 Click Here
Alex said on 9/Aug/07
Theres 2.5 inches between Kane and Ben. Not easy to tell the difference between 2 and 2.5 inches anyway. Look at their eye levels, thats what may think people its 3-4 inch difference.

I can't buy Morgan under 6'8.
Viper said on 8/Aug/07
You know, the more I look at the Kane and Ben photo, the more I see just 2 inches max and not even 2.5. No way do I see a full 3 inches there. If anything its more 2 inches. Do you agree Vegas?
Viper said on 8/Aug/07
And Matt Morgan looked 6-5 to you as well. Maybe these guys are really 6-6-6-7 and they just come off as being shorter?
Alex said on 8/Aug/07
JK, I met him but he was sitting down. Too bad because before I got on the end of the big line I heard a few people talking about before they got on the end of the line Batista walked by them when they were by the table. So if I stayed by the table longer before getting online I would have seen him walk right by me.
Jason said on 8/Aug/07
He was the same height as Matt Morgan in the 2004 Royal Rumble.
Da Man said on 8/Aug/07
Kane was no more than 2" (looked a little less actually) shorter than Big Show in a direct nose-to-nose in ring face off in 1999, nowadays the difference is consistently well over 2". In that 1999 face off, Kane looked taller next to Show than Nash ever did. So no, I don't really see Kane busting out the big ones nowadays.
Jason said on 8/Aug/07
Kane's busted the big ones out since then.
Alex said on 7/Aug/07
Vegas, yea Kane is 3 inches at most taller than Ben.
6'3'' JK said on 7/Aug/07
Alex, you met Batista right? what was your estimate on his height?
Vegas said on 6/Aug/07
Well kane is basically 6'9 (roughly 6'8.5" or so) here next to big ben (who I estimate is 6'6 in shoes) just last year Click Here

Kane is also two inches shorter today than back in the mega-lift days when he had a few inches to spare on the undertaker at Badd Blood. IMO circa 1997-2000 or so; Kane was roughly 6'10.5" in his mega lifts
The Avenger said on 6/Aug/07
I think Batista looks like a legir 6'3 in the picture with the Great Khali
Jason said on 6/Aug/07
Rey Mysterio's never seemed all that ridiculously short to me for some reason - certainly not below 5'3''. I've seen him in person on three different occasions now. Maybe I can't tell as well due to the big height difference...

I remember Powerslam magazine referencing Kane's height in 2 old issues I have. They called him a 7-footer in a 1999 issue, but there's a quote from one writer in 1998 that says he stands 6'9'' max - and that being in the old mega lifts.
6'3'' JK said on 5/Aug/07
Rey Mysterio could be 5'4'' maximum
Alex said on 5/Aug/07
I'm not gonna lie, I did think Batista was really 6'5 up until 2005. LOL
Never really questioned their heights a whole lot until I got onto this site.
Vegas said on 5/Aug/07
WWE.com doesn't actually bill Nitro/Morrison at any height!!! There are lots of independant listings of 6'2, 6'1 and 6'0 for him though.

OVW are not as bad as they once were (they were terrible five years ago when jim cornette was in charge down there). Currently Colt Cabana is listed at 6'1 (i have a picture with this guy and he looks closer to 6ft), Ryan Wilson is listed at 6'11 (he was 7ft in tna) and Mickey from Spirit Squad is 5'7 (he is about 5'6 in reality having met him)

''Wrestling has all kinds of insane billings, WWE are probably the biggest offenders.

I wouldn't say WWE are the worst offenders in the wrestling world. OVW while owned by the WWE (not run by them though) are far worse; Matt Morgan at 7'1, John Cena at 6'3, Batista at 6'7?!?! Dont forget WWA had Nathan Jones at 7'0 while in the WWE he was 6'10 (his old strongman billing), Paul Wight was 7'4 in WCW yet only 7'0 in the WWE. Dalip Singh was 7'7 in New Japan Click Here and from time to time as high as 7'10. Paul Silva magically gained a number of inches when he left the WWE...

I am surprised by your statement seeing as you met chimel, richards, masters, nitro, and steamboat and thought they were all within 1" of their listed heights and some majors brothers, burke looked taller than they are billed.''



True. I forgot about OV. They would be the worst. I thought Johhny Nitro was billed as 6'1''? I would say he was 5'11''.

Alex, OV were billing Batista (as ''The Levithian'') as 6'7'' in 2000. I think the main thing with billings is getting away with it with kids, teens and the gullable.

Cena could be a lift wearer.
Alex said on 4/Aug/07
Cobra, I've also seen Batista and Cena look no more than 2 inches at the same PPV so maybe its an angle or something.
Alex said on 4/Aug/07
Batista at 6'7? Damn I didn't know he was billed that high. Only way to get away with being 6'7 on TV is if you're a legit 6'5-6'6, no lower.
Cobra said on 4/Aug/07
On the Royal Rumble 2005 is Special Segment on the DVD, were Cena comes back to the ring and is congratulating Batista. The difference between them is about 3". Batista is clearly taller.

I know its not a good pic, but still
Alex said on 4/Aug/07
Mysterio's height is one of the most obvious heights that is way off. No way near 5'6. I guess he could get away with 5'4 on TV while he's really 5'3.

Wrestling has all kinds of insane billings, WWE are probably the biggest offenders.

The only height they have listed correctly is of Rey Mysterio..He really is 5'6 like they say.

Mysterio is nowhere near 5'6, i bet he is 5'2, 5'3 max. Look at him standing next to Khali, there is a two foot difference Click Here
dits said on 4/Aug/07
batista is really no more than 6'2..i mean,mark henry is listed as 6'1,and when they had their feud going on batista never had anymore than an inch over him.sometimes it seemed mark henry was taller!

and then i saw a past royal rumble match between batista and john cena,and it was as if they were both the same height! ofcourse,batista was a 320 lbs guy back then,so he 'looked' bigger.but height-wise,not much difference.

and now,you see batista and khali.batista looks like a dwarf in front of khali.had he been 6'6 like the WWE says,then the difference wont be so great.I mean,6'6?? thats a 4 inch height addition.

WWE just wants to make their wrestlers look bigger..Kurt angle was listed as 6'2,so anything is possible. The only height they have listed correctly is of Rey Mysterio..He really is 5'6 like they say.

You can make a tall guy seem taller but you can't extend the shorter ones.

Da Man said on 3/Aug/07
The footwear of Kane, Khali and Batista all look pretty comparable. None of them appear to have any internal lifts and none of those soles appear to offer any more height than a typical dress shoe would.

I can't see Kane below 6'7", a 6'5" Kane is next to impossible based on the loads of out of ring evidence we've seen. You have to realize Jason saw 6'8" for the Big Show, I'm dying for this guy to meet Shaq.
Alex said on 3/Aug/07
Mysterio I think is about 5'3 too. He's short but not as short as 5'0 though.
Vegas said on 3/Aug/07
the footwear of kane, khali and batista Click Here (5th photo)

The 3rd last photo shows khalis boots up close, he is not getting much lift from the boots as they seem nearly flat.
Alex said on 3/Aug/07
Vegas, yea noway someone 6'5-6'6 is getting away with being billed at 7'0 for that many years.
Jason said on 3/Aug/07
Oh, I didn't mean to start any debates about Kane (or Khali lol) - I wouldn't have even mentioned what I thought they were if I wasn't asked - but Kane only seemed 6'5'' to me. I'm not saying he is that, but that's the impression I got for whatever reason; whether he is only that, posture or me under-estimating. So many variables affect estimating height. This chick in the group I hung out with was convinced Rey Mysterio was only 5'0'' yet I thought 5'3''?
Vegas said on 3/Aug/07
Jason; if you had got a full-length photo of you looking just 1" shorter than Kane or basically eye to eye with him that would have been excellent evidence.

Of course there are a couple of issues with a 6'5 kane:
1.He must have been wearing shoes giving him basically a 4" lift with big ben taking into account big bens shoes/runners gave approx a 1" lift. IMO Kanes old platforms didnt give him 4", his current footwear look to be giving him the standard 1.25" that 90% of wrestling boots give.
2.Why would the WWE bill a 6'5 guy at 7ft??? 6'5 is not really that tall, hard to believe that someone that short can get away with being billed at 7ft for 10 years on national television (Thats the same as me being billed at 6'6!!). Alot of WWE fans that go to live events are as tall or taller than 6'5. for example that sign guy fellow claims he is 6'7 tall himself; i got up close to him at the rumble; he is about 6'6 Click Here
3.You only saw 3.5" between Stevie Richards and Kane??? imo there is more than this. My 6'4 friend had 3" basically on Richards (as you can see in the photo) and he was shorter than Kane.

When Kane first walked by me i thought 6'6 but he has a very big forehead which puts off estimations. Even though i don't agree with a 6'5 kane you would have a much easier time convincing me of that over a 6'7 big show!!!

Finlay is billed at 6'2, he was next to Randy Orton on RAW the week before WM23 and it looked silly (after all there is only supposed to be 2" between them, lol)
Alex said on 3/Aug/07
Really anthing under a legit 5'11 but more likely under 6'0 you shouldn't be getting billed at 6'2. I think 2 inches inflations are the most common. Over that really its tough to get away with.
Jason said on 2/Aug/07
I sure did. Finlay? 6'2'', yeah. I wonder if it was WWE or him that came up with that billing...
Alex said on 2/Aug/07
I can't see Kane at anything under 6'7.
Alex said on 1/Aug/07
What do they bill Finlay at? 6'2 right? LOL
Alex said on 1/Aug/07
Dreamer is 6'0 at the most I'd say.
Funaki is 5'7.
Noble 5'7 at most.
Torrie still seems closer to 5'9 then 5'7 to me but I've never seen her close enough in person.
Jason said on 1/Aug/07
Steamboat was 5'9''. Finlay was there - I've seen him before - he seemed 176cm, same as last time. None of those other names were there but I've seen Moore, Noble and Funaki in person before. Nunzio, too. Can't remember exactly for Moore - I think 5'8''. Jamie Noble was 5'6'' - real short. Funaki ... hmmm ... I can't really remember -- in the 5'7''-5'9'' range. Nunzio was like 5'5'' I think. Oh - and I've seen Torrie lol, she seemed 5'7-5'8''. Yeah, Tommy Dreamer is nowhere near 6'3''. Never seen the Sandman but I would of guessed he's borderline tall.
Vegas said on 1/Aug/07
i have never met most of the guys you mention (chimel, major brothers, burke, masters, nitro, victoria, steamboat). Only saw Tommy Dreamer for a second last year in Chicago, looked in the 5'11-6ft range but he ran past me. Def not the 6'3 billing he got back in the old ECW. Sandman was billed at 6'4 in the old ECW and he walked right past me nearly knocking me over at the rumble, he is 6'1 max and could be shorter.

Any luck seeing the likes of Shannon Moore, vickie guerrero, torrie wilson, jamie noble, funaki, finlay, eugene, joey styles or nunzio,
Jason said on 1/Aug/07
I couldn't really tell how heavy Masters was exactly -- I only saw him momentarily and was just sizing up his height as he was in bare feet, so bloody good opportunity lol. Vaguely; 225, 230.
Alex said on 31/Jul/07
Masters has gotta be 230 after his weight loss. He lost 30lbs they said. He use to be 260lbs or around there at his biggest before he lost weight after being on steriods.
Viper said on 31/Jul/07
I dont think I can buy 6-5 for Kane, but possibly 6-6.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
Oh ... I also saw that Chimel (or whatever his name is) announcer guy late into the wee hours. I remember someone (can't remember who) here saying he was at least 6'1'', but I saw nothing over 6'0'' flat.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
That's what I did lol ... but there were too many people as this was earlier in the night. I saw him a few times then but he seemed to disappear after that until it was time to leave. I came within a few feet of him one time but he was shuffling along and on higher ground -- he didn't wanna hang around anywhere. He seemed to appear taller in the ring than after the show in street clothes. Also appears slimmer in clothes than he does shirtless in his wrestling gear for some reason. He didn't seem to want to sign any autographs but apparently he said happy birthday to someone when they said it was their birthday.
Vegas said on 31/Jul/07
Jason; based on your response i get the feeling you didn't see Khali up close?? If i saw him within 50 feet of me i would run over to see how tall this guy was (but thats me) :P Khali had more than a full head on big basketball booted john cena (and basically a full head on cowboy booted batista) so I think your friend was well out with his estimation.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
Yeah, Richards was 6'1'', 6'1 1/4''. No way 5'11''. He was in gym gear and came along huffing and puffing, so must have just finished exercising.
Alex said on 31/Jul/07
Kane at 6'5 I'll have a very hard time believing. LOL
Alex said on 31/Jul/07
Jason, Steven Richards was 6'1? I could agree on that but funny I remember one time he was listed at 5'11 by WWE I think.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
I also saw Johhny Nitro quite a bit ... I can't even remember exactly how tall he was now. Under 6'0'' I think. But he was exceedingly nice, which was suprising given his wrestling persona lol.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
He wasn't 230lbs, though. 210 or so.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07

That guy. Elijah Burke! Yeah, that was his name now I remember. 6'1'', eh? Yeah, he was 6'1'' unless he was in large footware. Like the Major Brothers, he came past me on slightly higher pavement. I didn't see his match - I was running terribly late and never got to the show until half way through lol. I don't know if he was just being in character or not, but he totally ignored people...
hannah said on 31/Jul/07
I think the black guy your talking about might be Elijah Burke from ECW? His billed height is 6'1" also.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
Wow. I just googled what the Major Brothers were billed at (I had no idea) and it's 6'1''. Guess I overshot the mark a bit because they were on slightly higher pavement when I was around them, but they are both the 6'1'' they're billed at.
Jason said on 31/Jul/07
About that, I don't think he was a full 6'3''. He wasn't that tall - like 6'4'' that many here have said. And he was in bare feet. That black guy with the braids (not MVP, this guy was darker) - dunno his name - seemed 6'1 1/2''ish. The Major Brothers seemed 6'1 1/2''-6'2''. They also had this head security type guy who was the spitting image of Virgil.
