How tall is Dave Bautista

Dave Bautista's Height

6ft 2 ¾ (189.9 cm)

American Professional Wrestler and actor known for roles in Guardians of the Galaxy, Riddick and Spectre. One of his claims was "I'm 6ft 5" and another visitor said they saw him claiming "6ft 3".
I stay about 265; that's just my natural body weight that I walk around at. I will probably weigh-in between 262 and 265. Most people who see me that remember me from wrestling, the way they make it sound as if I look anorexic. It's like, "God, you have gotten so small." But I'm 6'4" and 265 pounds. I don't know how people could consider that small, but I guess by wrestling standards it is. -, 2012

It's hard to say in alot of photos he looks shorter than chris pratt

I think Dave is looking as listed with Suotamo. On the left Suotamo with 187cm guy.

Dave looks about an inch taller to me.

If you rewatch the old match between batista and orton, dave looked taller than he is this days. Today is over 6ft2 easily, probably 6ft2 1/2.
Click Here
I think he was a full 6ft3 as peak height and today only 6ft2 1/2 like the rock
Editor Rob
I don't rule out 6ft 3 peak for Dave, I can see how it's a figure he might have measured and lost a fraction by 40's. Like Cena, I don't think he's shipped much height, but you are lucky if you get to that age and haven't lost a fraction.
Ben Bell said on 27/Aug/20
Definite lift wearer. I was at a show in 05 and he looked legit 6’5.
When he returned with his blue trunks he looked inches shorter over night.
Being heroes is I’d say 6’3 peak. 6’2 today.
6'3 Julian said on 20/Aug/20
There was a battle Royale for the Heavyweight title in 2006 where Batista didn’t look much shorter than Kane
Hasnain Zia said on 17/Aug/20
I'd say no less than 6'2.5 because his head is higher than 6'2 guys like Alberto Del Rio and Roman Reigns. Very bad posture though
Crane said on 11/Aug/20
@Ben Bell
6’5 and down to 6’2 within just a day?.....
Are you for real!
Don’t take his WWE figure seriously, when he was known as Khan, Leviathan and Deacon Dave in WSW, WCW, OVW.
David Bautista was built as high as 6’7” 350 pounds.
While the truth was he barely even looked 6’2-6’2.5 280-300 pounds.
Pro Wrestling Height & Weight should never be taken seriously like ever
Slim 6'1" said on 2/Aug/20
Taller than Pratt for sure 189-190
Paul Feasal said on 28/Jul/20
I saw a picture of the Rock next to Barley and Shaq. Barkley toward over the rock by at least 4 inches. I think the Rock at tops is 6’2 in shoes now. Barley is 6’4 almost 6’5. In shoes he is 6’6.
Ben Bell said on 26/Jul/20
Lift wearer.
I was ringside In 05 and looked 6’5.
Overnight seemed to lose a couple of inches.
Looks 6’2ish today
berta said on 26/Jul/20
rob in his prime i think 6´3 is better listing. But today he often struggles to look over 188-189. i really think he is at best 189 these days. Ore just bad posture. i saw his new spy movie and i asked my brother how tall he thought he looked and he sad " 188". and thats what he looked most of the movie.
Gobgghbfffcnkj said on 26/Jul/20
Is it just me or has he lost muscle mass since he wrestled? In WWE he looked impressive even next to roided up monsters but in Guardians of the Galaxy he isn’t all that impressive and looks kind of flabby
Crane said on 23/Jul/20
Exacto, viper
Always around 6'2-6'2.5 range from 2000-2010.
At the very moment, it is very skeptical that he is even "6 foot 2" anymore..
viper said on 19/Jul/20
He was never taller than 6-2
Hotpots said on 15/Jul/20
Doesn’t look much taller than HHH. I’d say now 6-2
Michael Massi said on 5/Jul/20
Maybe 6'3 prime..back surgeries,aging steroids certainly could of cost him an inch or more..
FriedChicken said on 1/Jul/20
I wouldn't say he's a 6'2 flat. He looks tall as hell in My Spy 2020 film. I used to think he was only 6'2 1/4 with Terry Crews but Crews had the favoring camera angle. I still say today he's at least 6'2 1/2. Same height as Idris Elba or Current Dwayne Johnson. Peak I'd say he was 6'3 flat.
Tall Sqm said on 29/Jun/20
Haha he obviously borrows the crazy Groot platforms to appear in public since hes 5'4", but seriously Nic Hammer obviously spotted a short muscleman that resembles Bautista.
Nic Hammer said on 28/Jun/20
I’m 5’7”, and I stood next to him in line at a Perkins once, he was wearing flip flops, and I towered over him. I put him at 5’4” max. He’s probably 6’2” when he wears his platforms. I mean, I’m pretty sure it was him.
viper said on 26/Jun/20
I agree he's never been taller than 6-2.

Not sure If he's just 6-1 now though
FriedChicken said on 26/Jun/20
Yeah as i said before i can't see current Bautista being taller than Idris Elba. I say now he's in need of a current and peak height listing.
Crane said on 26/Jun/20
To be absolutely honest with any of you here. I really cannot see anything above 189 cm / 6'2 1/2 for David Michael Dave Bautista, whether it is today or 30+ years ago.

Speaking of today, it is even worse than we thought, he barely even looks a legit 185 cm / 6'1 anymore.

There are 100 thousands of comparison pictures on the internet that you can see (*beware of any unfair advantages).

He was and still is extremely wide, thick, huge, large, solid whatever word you wanna use to describe him

**BUT honestly do any of you really think Devon Bautista ever was or is really that tall ?
heightchecker34 said on 22/Jun/20
I am still not seeing peak 6'3 for this guy. I am only counting his years in wrestling which started around the age of 30, so I doubt he lost any height at that point, even though he did some bodybuilding. He looks 6'2.5 max prime and sometime I think 6'2.25. There might be a picture here or there, which for 1/2 inch is easy for a person to reach with lifts, angle of camera, positioning etc. But consistently he looks sub 6-3. 6'2 275 lb is not a small person by any stretch, let alone a jacked individual. So it would be easy for people to be off an inch or two.
Jam Cherry said on 10/Jun/20
190 cm is maximum possible really Hemsworth edges him out
Chinybobs said on 5/Jun/20
The 6-5 claim is gold. Hahahaha. He’s a fully fledged member of the vin diesel height club. Lol.
James roy said on 1/Jun/20
Hey Rob who would you bet is taller Bautista or Dwayne Johnson
Editor Rob
In their prime both could look 6ft 3 range, but I never thought 6ft 4 guys.

How far apart they would measure is harder to say, I doubt it's really much in it.
Chinybobs said on 23/May/20
6-2.5 imo. Peak 6-3. No more.
juggernaut said on 19/May/20
in backstage segments with Triple H in 2004-2005 he looked almost an inch taller and sometimes equal in height..but it's funny how he was called 6'6' and even 6'7' at times..He was at least 6'2'75 or 6'3' at best in his prime..he was 1-1.5 inches shorter than Randy Orton.. in the ring, at times I do believe he wore lifts to look closer to 6'5' or 6'4'.. he didn't look taller than Goldberg every time they faced off in the ring..
Kane99 said on 17/May/20
Is it only my impression or Batista have a very small head for a 6ft3 man

FriedChicken said on 12/May/20
I'm not really sure what to believe as anyone can claim to be anything. I'm still in favor of him being downgraded to 6'2.5. Peak height was definitely a legit 6'3 though. I really can't see Current Bautista being taller than Idris Elba or Dwayne Johnson. And he doesn't look quite 6'2.75 with 6'1.75 Chris Pratt.
Roderick said on 7/May/20
@Ackpreacher Batista was for sure a big dude, no doubt, but I am doubting that he's really 6'4".
Hanov said on 7/May/20
@Michael Holy Molly, 194? Batista is very tall but not too much

194cm peak barefoot
Ackpreacher said on 23/Apr/20
I knew Dave at wrestling school -- I am legit Dr measured 6'3.25 and I can say with certainty Dave was probably an inch taller -- He was a full 6'4 in his prime early 30's -- He was also one of the largest muscular people Ive seen -- Huge frame and very broad shoulders -- He is larger in person than you would expect because he is very symmetrical -- You have to stand up next to him to appreciate his size --
FriedChicken said on 22/Apr/20
@Vexacus I highly doubt he's a "legit 6'3" when he's not much taller than Chris Pratt and looked similar in height as Terry Crews. Plus he was noticably shorter than Chris Hemsworth. Taller than a flat 6'2 but not quite 6'3 or even 6'2.75. 6'2.25 to 6'2.50 would be my guess

Plus no one said being short or average was a bad thing.
Masonsugar said on 22/Apr/20
Hey Rob, do you think Batista is 6’2 flat these days? He certainly looked it in 2018 with Triple H who is not 6’1.5. I can see his peak height being around 6’3 cause he always looked an inch shorter than Randy Orton back in the day.
Editor Rob
Not yet, I think he still measures over it.
Vexacus said on 18/Apr/20
Batista is a legit 6'3 , maybe a weak one , some people need to stop downgrade everyone . Being short or average is not a bad thing .
Cockstride said on 13/Apr/20
The 6-6,claim just shows how much some celebrities are utterly false. Peak 6.2.5 imo

Batista was a little taller than dwayne Johnson back then.

The rock was only a hair taller than triple H or Goldberg or Lesnar back then, Batista was visibly taller than triple h Goldberg lesnar

Batista and Dwayne would be the same, Goldberg and Lesnar are both taller than triple h

Yep, bro, downgrade at least one quarter would be great. I don't see him taller than The Rock right now.
Roderick said on 28/Mar/20
@FriedChicken A downgrade to 6'2.25" would be nice
FriedChicken said on 28/Mar/20
He needs a downgrade. Why is no one talking about he looks identical to Terry Crews in height when they met.

6’1” now for Batista.

6’2”+ when he had hair
Ma4 said on 18/Mar/20
What the hell google gave him 6'6 (1.98m) he looked almost equal or 1 inch taller then Stephanie McMahon in the video. Stephanie was wearing heels. With heels she is 6'1(1.86m) so i think hes 6'15 or 6'2 peak.

Heres the video:

Do you agree with me @Rob
Mitch Hughes said on 5/Mar/20
Batista looked noticeably shorter when he came back during his 2014 run. Coincidentally he had a major back surgery after leaving in 2010. He probably lost height because of that.
mark thompson said on 2/Mar/20
wtf? google has got him down as 6'6.
Soren said on 29/Feb/20
Easily taller than The Rock.
Bob da cob. said on 25/Feb/20
WWE billed him at 6-5 and even 6-6 at one point LOL. 6-2.75 peak imo. Now 6-2
Jkiller said on 22/Feb/20
He's very close to 6'3
Paul H said on 20/Feb/20
Another guy who has been billed at 6.6ft,6.5ft,6.4ft and 6.2ft by the WWE!I think 6.2ft is correct.
Yin Young said on 13/Feb/20
John Cena looks more a bit closer height to Triple H or The Rock but when it comes with Batista it becomes clear there is a lot difference.
184guy2 said on 25/Jan/20
6'3 peak , 6'2.25 now
Canson said on 23/Jan/20
Peak may have been over 6’2. I could buy 6’2.5 or 6’2.75 peak
Bob da cob. said on 22/Jan/20
6-2. Another lying claim. Never near 6-4 lol
Mikey97 said on 6/Jan/20
I don't think he's shrunk and has always been somewhere in that mid 6'2" range like 6'2.25"-6'2.75".
Guy who is really worried about his heig said on 27/Dec/19
Look at his pictures with Daniel Craig from Spectre . He is hardly 2 inches taller.
edwards said on 22/Dec/19
back then in 2007 when the guy faced undertaker.he was 4 or 4.5 inches shorter.taker in 2007 was near enough 6'7 or lets say 6'6.75 or 6'7.
Roderick said on 21/Dec/19
@Xpac I tend to think HHH was more 6'1.75", which puts Batista at 6'2.75".

@viper That looks a bit low. He looked more than a flat 6'2" next to Brock Lesnsr in 2001. At the time when Undertaker may have still been close to 6'7", Batista didn't look 5 inches shorter. I'd say Batista was a solid 6'2.5"-6'2.75" guy at peak.
viper said on 20/Dec/19
He was never taller than 6-2. He hasn't shrunk any
George Rodriguez said on 20/Dec/19
Click Here Batista would’ve edged The Rock at their peak by a quarter inch imo, 6’3.25 peak for Batista and 6’2.5 now. He deserves to get a peak height now i think.

Xpac99 said on 16/Dec/19
According to your list and joeyb33 which he met roman reigns, roman is 6ft2.25 or near that. Therefore Batista peak height would be only 1/2 of an inch taller than reigns.

how much difference you see in this photo?
Even considering your list, 6ft3 for dave is very likely
Editor Rob
Could be close to 6ft 3 for Dave there
Roderick said on 16/Dec/19
Tbh Titus and Dave look pretty even there. I still think the difference is 3/4.
TheBat said on 15/Dec/19

Sometimes he looks 6'2" flat, but I think he could be 6'2.5" today, he would edge out The Rock by a bit.
Xpac99 said on 14/Dec/19

Batista and edge back 2005. I don’t understand Why to give 6ft3 for edge and not for Batista. Upgrade. 6ft3 for peak, 6ft2.5 today
Xpac99 said on 13/Dec/19
Rob, do you really think that Batista was taller than goldberg in peak height or the same height is arguable for you?
Editor Rob
I can see why Batista could have a better chance of a full 6ft 3 than goldberg could.

Bill White said on 10/Dec/19
I'm 6'5" and I've stood next to Dave Bautista and can tell you he's most likely 6'2". Celebs and athletes always fudge on their height. I have a picture of me and Albert Puljos (who claims to be 6'4") and there's just no way...It's also funny that people who "fudge" are always insisting that i'm taller than I actually am because it highlights their embellishment! Just be honest people! There's no shame in being short! Who cares?

How was in your opinion the height difference between the rock and batista, comparing them next to triple h

Caldonio said on 7/Dec/19
WWE s actually billed him as 6-6 at one point 💩💩😂😂😂

He's probably 6'2"-6'2.5" now. Anywhere in that range is fine to me.
TheBat said on 2/Dec/19
6'2.5" today. Probably this listing at peak.
James B said on 28/Nov/19
He must be a freak of nature too look too skinny at 250

@Rampage He was on steroids. He could have been close at peak weight. He was billed at 318lb for awhile
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/19
In his early wrestling career I don’t think he was far from 300lbs, he was absolutely gassed
Ben Bell said on 25/Nov/19
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Nov/19
265 lbs at 6'2 1/2 i don't think so. He could be 245-250 prob just claim heavier to match his 6'4 claim.

He weighed a legit athletic commission 265lbs in his MMA fight and he was noticeably slimmed down from his WWE days.
Think he said he got to 250 at one point and looked way too skinny. He’s a super wide dude
Roderick said on 22/Nov/19
A photo Titus posted on Instagram shows him looking similar to Batista. It's hard to say who had the edge bc of Batistas slouching.

I don't know how tall Titus is honestly, typically in WWE he always looked 6'4" in ring but outside next to NFL players he usually looks anywhere from 6'2.5" to 6'3".
Roderick said on 17/Nov/19
He doesn't look over 6'2.5" with Lesnar
Tarif Aurangzeb 6'1.5" or 187 said on 14/Nov/19
Batista looks around 6’3.25-3.5” with the likes of guys like John Cena who is 6’0.75”. He is barely shorter than Edge who is 6’3.5” range but shorter than Randy Orton (6’4.25”) by one inch. He towered the likes of Eddie Guerrero by 7-8 inches but was shorter than the Undertaker (6’8”) by 4-4.5 inches.
Josue said on 11/Nov/19
6'2 3/4 is just fine. Definitely looks 1 .25" taller than 6'1.5" Triple H.

He struggled with 6-2 next to a 6-4.5 measured basketball player.

Anything close to 6-3 is really hard to buy

Very close to a 6'3 peak, but fell just short. 6'2.5 range today.
viper said on 6/Nov/19
Don't think he's ever been more than

I could buy a bit taller listing for Edge, maybe 6-2.5
viper said on 5/Nov/19
He's bigger than Shawne Merriman and Merriman is 250 minimum.

I can easily buy 260.

245-250 no way
Roderick said on 4/Nov/19
Come on, don't upgrade his peak just so you can add a current of 6'2.5". I think 6'2.75" peak and 6'2.25" today is better

The peak listing is accurate IMO
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Nov/19
265 lbs at 6'2 1/2 i don't think so. He could be 245-250 prob just claim heavier to match his 6'4 claim.

bautista seems shorter than chris pratt who is listed 1.87 ,he had shrank a lot
SeanR said on 1/Nov/19

Have you decided yet to change Batista to peak 6’3” and current 6’2.5”?

I’ve seen a lot of comments here saying that Dave’s measurements are practically the same as The Rock. I would tend to agree
Editor Rob
Not decided, but I can believe it might turn out fair option.
James B said on 23/Oct/19
Just saying rob when he’s says naturally 265 pounds.... too me that means he’s naturally that weight without making much effort which I find hard too believe.
James B 172cm said on 23/Oct/19
rob do you think he is really naturally 265 pounds or is that because of roids?
Editor Rob
I don't know which actors have used enhancements, but to get some bodies naturally obviously takes years of work.

I'm still waiting for my 6 pack to appear after 50,000 sit ups 😵
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Oct/19
Brandon Routh could not edge him out. 6'2 estimation is poorly executed.
Roderick said on 18/Oct/19
6'2" flat for Batista today is very, very possible.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Oct/19
@houss Lol. He wasn't standing well with 190cm Hemsworth and not 1" between them and 187cm Pratt look the about the same that picture because Dave had less footwear. Other picture from google images have prove near 1" or 2cm between Pratt and Dave. Dave we can argue 189cm not more but 6'2 flat is a bit too less. There is nothing to confuse when camera angle is shaky or people were standing on different angle or unlevel floor.
TheBat said on 9/Oct/19

Probably 6'2.25"-6'2.5".

The picture with Terry Crews means that he is just a little past the 6'2 mark. He was almost as tall as 6'3 Edge in 2004

6'2.2 current
6'2.8 peak
KoolKid05 said on 29/Sep/19
His mma page has him at 6'4" so ill say that is true. His 6'6" wwe billing is a bit exaggerated
Wrestling Fan said on 18/Sep/19
Can you post some photos of that?
viper said on 16/Sep/19
Absolutely looked no taller than a flat 6-2 next to 6-4.5 measured David Noel in 2006.

And Noel might have been measured at
6-4 3/8 and rounded up
K.A 188 ! said on 16/Sep/19
Bautista had the broadest shoulders I have ever seen on a wrestler and i say that as a wide guy myself.
Google some years ago used to list him at 198 cm which i knew was exaggerated, i would have easely believed a figure like 193 though, due to his massive shoulders because i was not height awared back then.
Orton always edged him so 6ft4 barefoot for Batista it's out of question.
But 6ft3 (190. 5) on the dot seems reasonable for a peak height .

He was announced as 6'5" in WWE in the 2000's. I don't know where the 6'6" came from either.

I’m not getting the 6’6” listings. He was billed 6’4” before in most places as well
Hopping hopper said on 4/Sep/19
Peak 6-3. Now 6-2
Roderick said on 1/Sep/19
I can't see a full 6'3" for his peak. I wouldn't upgrade his peak to 6'3" just so you can add a current listing of 6'2.5". I'd keep his current listing as it is and add a current listing of 6'2.25".
Wrestling Fan said on 31/Aug/19
I'd love to share a fact.
This man sabotaged his own growth.
His peak height might be somewhere around 6'3" or something?
He was that tall when he was only 16.
At the age of 16 this man started building body and lifting heavy weights etc.
As he said in his book that he lived in poverty in his teens and bodybuulding was the thing that saved his life,so he started bodybuilding at just the age of 16.If he wouldn't have done that maybe he would have been as tall as 6'5" or something.

I'd like to recommend you to finally give his peak and present height now,just giving an advise not an order.

How tall wwe eddie compared to batista
Myself said on 21/Aug/19
I can't say for footwear; I know very little about it. If there's really an advantage for Mark Henry then of course more than 0.5" difference.
Yeah I don't know how Henry could've possibly looked 6'2 to Rob. Even with Josh he's nowhere that (eyelevel disadvantage accounted)...
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Aug/19
But Henry had thicker footwear in that pic though. They were probably 2cm apart. I agree with Rob's listing of 6'2.75" and 6'2" for them, although Henry nowadays is no more than 6'1.5" IMO.
Myself said on 15/Aug/19
Of course I agree that Batista is the taller of the 2, but I can't really see 1 inch. 0.5" I think is reasonable.
Myself said on 15/Aug/19
Yeah, by looking again I'm not sure about my statement; I may have overestimated angles+posture loss. But still, I think Henry generally stands more relaxed and it looks like he might be losing height with the forward-head posture. From other angles in that video they look pretty much the same.
In this photo Click Here they look very similar, and yet again Henry is not having good "standing tall" neck/head posture; he usually prefers his "intimidation" stance.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Aug/19
What? Bautista clearly looked taller than Henry.
Myself said on 13/Aug/19
How does he look 6'3 with Henry there? They look roughly the same. Henry has a big forehead too.

To my eyes this guy as one of the widest shoulders I ever seen on screen, which certainly make him look huge. If not for celebheights I would of thought he’s his billed height of 6’5”.
tree said on 10/Aug/19
Looked 6ft3 with Henry too Click Here
If we look at him before around 2010 i think 6ft3 is a good listing for peak,later maybe he looked more 190,and today can still be over 189.

But my question had nothing to do with the Rock. I was asking about Bautista. But I don't think Rock needs any upgrading IMO.
Editor Rob
I answered the question by referencing Rock's listing as also being a possibility for Dave.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 5/Aug/19
Are you considering giving Dave a current height like you recently did with Triple H?
Editor Rob
I have considere like the rock a 6ft 3/2.5 possibility, he probably has fraction, it's whether it is small or half inch range.

@Crane: this site is awesome, even though I disagree with not using out of bed, full heights. That is truly are max height. Anyhow, you are giving this site far too much credit in Bautista height being lowered. Many others online have not been lowered.
Shane Gray said on 16/Jul/19
@Crane: not everyone is trying to upgrade. Many people just think of their real height as their height in shoes. Yes, some people just lie but many others are claiming a shoe height. Lots of athletes and basketball players dont even think of a barefoot height.

Crane said on 17/Apr/19
@Johnson That's not Dave Bautista. That guy looks about 5'11 there with GSP and old man JCVD.

Bautista height list is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen in Pro-Wresting history. I mean the guy was given 6'5 up to 6'8 while his real barefoot height is just 6'2.5.. It's really absurd. I'm fine if he was given 6'3/6'4 but 6'7/6'8 is just too much for a 6'2.5 barefoot guy like him. Him claiming 6'4 is fine, as far as Pro-Wresting height claiming honesty goes, at least it just 1.5 inches closer to the truth. For a 6'2.5 guy, 6'3/6'4 is one thing, 6'5 6'6 6'7+ is really another.

I was measured 6'4 3/8 6 hours after wake up and always claimed myself to be just 6'4.

I never understand those that upgrade themselves more than an inch.

It seems people always want to get taller and bigger now and then, I guess it's in their nature. It also has a lot to do with ego and personality.

There needs to be clarification on whether the average guess is the evening height of the celebs. If so, they all need downgrades, as Batista, Lesnar, Reigns, Rock, etc. are all listed at over 6’2” for their evening height?

Sorry folks but a FULL 6’3 for Batista is outside the realm of possibility. How can he look 6’3 when a TRUE 6’4 Randy Orton had 4 cm/1.5 inches on him back in the Evolution days 2002-2005. And if he’s really a TRUE 6’2.75 then how on earth did he looked the exact same height as Chris Pratt who was either 6’1.5 or 6’1.75 in 2014 when they captured that picture. Don’t forget the fact that he was born in 1968, that would make him in 51 years old today. 6’2.5 1997-2008, 6’1.5 2009-2019.

Batista was a half inch taller than Lesnar in their match in 2001. I think it’s safe to say Lesnar was 6’1.75”- 6’2” then, so Batista was 6’2.25”-6’2.5” 270lbs
Crane said on 18/Mar/19
Many of you guys might curious about Big Dave's real Height. Let me explain.

Batista has been given 6'8 at WCW training facility in 1997-1999, when he was wrestled as an amateur.

6'7 at OVW (WWE's promotion member) around 1999-2001.

6'6 - 6'5 in WWE during 2002-2010.

Later changed to 6'4 at his return in 2014-2015 (Might be because nonsense WWE finally realized they can't have Batista at 6'6 and Randy Orton at an honest 6'4, LMAO) and then finally... down to 6'3 around 2017 to present day, thanks to this website.

So, let's judge him at his Peak during his 2002-2008 WWE run, since he was born in 1968 that would make him around 30 to 40 years old during that period and it would be the proper period to use the word "Peak".

He was always inch and a half taller than a legit 6'4 Randy Orton, that made him 6'2.5 in his peak. As for today, due to heavy steroid using and lifting 300 lbs for over 20 years+, his height has shrink down to 6'1.5 and that's what he looked with Chris Pratt in their photo shoot together back in 2014. Who knows, today he might fall as low as 6'1.25 or even 6'1 flat.

However, I will give him the extra 2014 sauce that would put him exactly as 6'2.5 in his Prime (1997-2010)and 6'1.5 from 2014-today.

RZA is shorter than Batista Mr Viper Click Here
Tall Sam said on 5/Mar/19
I think in photos where RZA looks taller than Bautista, Dave might be standing a little looser or leaning more so, sometimes they can look similar in some photos. There's a chance that Bautista can still straighten up to 6'2" range today, but a little height loss is likely from his peak after presumed years of extreme weight lifting.

Fellow height watchers, including Paul NS, accurate height measures evade most and especially for "celebs." However, I advocate truth based on close-up, physical observation and fairly assessing bare foot height. Stating true un-shoed, un-heelstacked, un-lifted, non-special effects height doesn't mean I like these characters any less or don't enjoy their showmanship. In fact, I appreciate their performances about 2 to 4 inches more.

heightchecker34 said on 20/Dec/18
I still believe Batista has always been a 6'2.5 guy at most. If he ever was 6'3, then it was before wrestling, because even in his early years in WWE, he always looked about an inch and a half shorter than 6'4 Randy Orton and half an inch shorter than 6'3 Edge, despite wearing bigger lifts. Even in his later comeback years, he always wears those big construction boots, and still didn't look too much larger than fellow 6'2-6'3 wrestlers. He is the same height as peak Bill Goldberg.
Hasnain Zia said on 10/Dec/18
rob i saw this video from 2014. this is batista with alberto del rio and if del rio is 6.2 then you can see that batista's head is higher than del rio. this would mean that he is still over 6.2 easily and may be over 6 2.5 also. the only problem is his posture and may also because of the fact that he has lost a lot of muscle. muscle can also make you look taller. what do you say about this rob.

Well Sheamus is somewhere in 6ft 2 range, not really 6ft 3, Dave might at one stage been near 6ft 3, but still today I think looks 189-90 if he stands with good posture.

190.5-191 cm peak and 189,5 today seems pretty realistic for him. dont think he really was under 6 foot 3 20 years ago.

That's because Batista lose height . He went from looking 6'3 11 years ago to look ''only'' 6'2 nowdays . But he still edges Pratt .
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 16/Nov/18
@John Barrett In wrestling they wear thick boots and there's camera tricks to make them appear bigger. Batista is an example because with wrestlers like Randy Orton he looked around the same height even though barefoot or in the same footwear he'd be shorter.
John barrett said on 5/Nov/18
What's odd about Dave is he looks shorter then Chris Pratt who is 6'2 or just under it and if go look at photos of them two Chris looks taller? When wrestlers are with each other they look taller when they are with others they look shorter?
TheBat said on 30/Oct/18
Good listing for Dave. Though he could probably be 6'3".
miko said on 29/Oct/18
In comparable footwear it has always been a very solid 1/1'25 between Orton and Batista.

I do think at his tallest Orton is a fraction over 6'4 though. I think a flat 6'3 is the absolute maximum Dave was/is, the majority of the time he looks 6'2.5/6'2.75 range today.

In the photo of Randy's instagram, in some angles Dave tower him, (though randy was wearing shoes) I still admit that Dave is around 1.91 and randy 1.94 (6'4'') .Anyways, I'm anxious to get down here the so called "peek height".

WhaleinaTeardrop said on 17/Oct/18
Dave was wearing Engineer/Biker boots last night which are usually good for an inch or two. HHH usually wears big boots when he's not in a suit which would explain why he and Dave appeared to be so close in height.

I'm 6'4.5" and had a good 1.5-2.0 inches on Frank Thomas(White Sox) when wearing my Harley boots and Orthotics while he had on Loafers at a book signing last year. I'd met him before and we were eye-to-eye when he had on loafers and I had on Nike AF1s and thin Orthotics.
