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. - FightHype.com, 2012

What a HUGE bloke!

@ pov - In my youth, I went out with a teenager of 18 who wasn’t long out of school. One of his teachers was always shabbily dressed and he didn’t smell too good either. The boys called him Pov.

We had a teacher just like that and there were always chalk marks round his personal area. One girl in my class drew a picture of him, complete with arrows and descriptors of certain areas of his corpulent body. The picture was duly passed round the class so that we could all have a laugh. Believe me, it cheered us up immensely!
😂👌🏼✍️. 🧾😂

Six foot three.
pov said on 27/May/23
I think he’s 6”2 exactly. I think he’s edged out by the Rock.

Dave Bautista is actually 190 cm tall.

Batista: 187 cm

How wide do you guys think bautistas shoulders are? If you’re still on this rob which I know ur busy I’d die to hear everyone’s opinions.. ?
CookieCutter said on 25/Apr/23
I have been looking back at some of the segments that Batista and Randy Orton had in 2008 and 2009 and they look near identical In the ring. You can say Batista has the footwear advantage but even if he had a 1 inch advantage he holds up way too well against a legit 6'4 Orton. I seriously think a peak and current height should be added.

I'd give Batista 6'3 peak. The only way I'd go lower is if someone can prove Randy Orton was never 6'4 because a 39-40 year old Batista held up way too good against a 28-29 year old Randy Orton.
Matt6'4.5 said on 23/Apr/23
Regardless of Dave’s height, his body people, size, and fact that he’s kept it well into his 50’s is impressive. In th featured picture, and with people relatively close to his own height (Randy Orton) I feel he looks maybe between 6’3 to 6’3.25. However, when appearing in person, he often doesn’t look much taller than Chris Pratt. I suppose 6’2.5 would be my guess.
Toby Barrett said on 3/Apr/23

6'2" or 188cms nowadays.

Rob, Dave can look solid 6ft 3 with Edge,Orten,Bobby lashley,Triple h and Goldberg in his prime. Is it time to give peak and 6ft 2.5 today?

6-2.5 peak imo

With 6-4.5 measured David Noel in 2006 he looked barely 6-2
Sup said on 24/Jan/23

Batista was at least an inch taller than triple h and a good 2 inches taller than Bobby lashley

Why don’t gave him a full 6ft3 ?
berta said on 24/Jan/23
interesting with the 6´2 description. Could he be 188cm flat these days? Its not impossible but i think its like 15 procent chanse of that. How tall does he look today? I think at worst 188-188,5 and at best still the full 6´3. beside edvard norton he could still pull of 6´3 but i think orton is 182 cm these days and that makes bautista 189,5. Average of 188,5-190,5 is 189,5 and that is what i think he measure today. Peak was taller than he looks now. i really think he was one of the more legit 6´3 guys at peak. the full 191. He have terrible posture. If he stood tall he could be one of those guys that measure atleast 1 cm taller than we think, but its just my theory. A little like jason staham and arnold. They look shorter but when measured they are taller than you think. Arnold look 178 today for example but i wouldnt be shooked if he could measure legit 180 still.
viper said on 17/Jan/23
How about a downgrade to 6-2.25
CookieCutter said on 14/Jan/23
If Triple H gets 6'2 (Peak)
If The Rock gets 6'3 (Peak)
If Randy Orton gets 6'4 (Peak)

Than Batista deserves 6'3 peak as well because he held up better against Orton than The Rock did and Batista is older. Regardless Batista needs a peak and current height because he is only 6'2 now.

IIRC he was billed at 6-7 in WWF early days. Lol. Decon batista I think. Lol. He’s not over 6-3.
berta said on 7/Jan/23
this havent really anything to do with height but i saw an interview with batista and i must say he seems like a really down to earth guy. I can imagine him being very nice to people. I hope to see him in alot of movies in the future. He doesnt have this aura of " look at me i am the centre of universe" ( like dwayne johnson:P) He almost look like he have moderate social anxiety. Nice guy. Heihgt like i said before - i dont think he could have been under 190 peak. Back in the day i used to think he was 192 ish.LIke way back in my teens. I think legit 6´3 peak. Actually the full 191 is very likely. Today he have clearly lost height. It could be his posture 8 very relaxed) but he can look 6´2 flat alot of the time. Ofcourse he is taller. But i can see an argument of 189. Dont look taller than dwayne johnson. 1/8 over 6´3 peak and legit 189 today. Half inch lost but can look like 2 cm because of posture.

Fried chicken, orton had easily over an inch on Batista. Batista i wouldn't give over 6'2.5 peak.
FriedChicken said on 16/Dec/22
He's around 6'2" 1/2 now Luke, i can assure you he did not shrink 1.5 inches. He lost like half an inch. Randy Orton was an inch taller than a younger Dave Bautista.
Luke Guarda said on 14/Dec/22
I believe that 6'4" because Undertaker was about 6'6 1/2" NOT 6'10" when he faced Batista who I always believed was 6'4"-6'5". However he suffered multiple injuries which causes height loss. I`d say he was very honest.
Slamo said on 11/Dec/22
Doubtful he was over 6-3 peak. Now looks 6-2 range
Andrey200 said on 5/Dec/22
If I recall correctly, he had bigger shoes than the rest of the cast in Riddick, probably why he looked taller than this

Many would argue he could have lost 1cm by now.

Dave’s posture is some of the worst I’ve seen for a recent celeb around. I swear in some photos he can look 2 inches under his listed height but he can still stand tall in his film roles.
Kharku said on 23/Sep/22
Click Here At 6:15 one Batista’s co-star denies of him being 6’6 and claim that he’s more like 6’2. I reckon in his prime days 2002-2010 if was comfortably 6’3 but now at 53 years of age he might have lost some height due to steroids and injuries. 6’3 peak 6’2.25 currently.

Peak Bautista was 6'3, now he's barely 6'2.

Peak Batista and Peak Rock were the same height... 6'2.75 (190 cm)
Tall Sam said on 26/Aug/22
This is interesting, I’d believe an even more accelerated loss than Dwayne Johnson. I think Dave struggles with looking as tall as 6’2” in recent years although his posture does him little favors. Rob, would you consider a current listing for him?
Space said on 24/Aug/22
@ Matt
I haven’t seen a recent photo or vid of Batista but I wouldn’t be surprised if Batista was 6’1.5 at the most today, he’s loosing height bad.

There was a rare vid of Batista in a 2003 royal rumble with Lesnar, where Batista looked easily 6’3” maybe even taller.

Prime Batista (2001-2005) at 6’2.75”-6’3.25” might be accurate. He may have started to loose height when he lost his hair in 2008 and onward.
Matt logan said on 24/Aug/22
No lol bautista is only like 6'1.5 now that's about it not that tall balky yes tall not really.
Hunkmala said on 20/Aug/22
Batista has lost height over the years
Most Legit 6'3 said on 15/Aug/22
In his MMA career he was billed at 6’4, which is probably his height in shoes. I’m guessing he was a solid 6’3 at his peak and now a little over 6’2.
berta said on 12/Jul/22
where did he claim that he was 6`5 :P? he can look 188 alot today because of bad posture but probablt still measure 189-190. Peak was nothing under 190. i actually thought he was around 191,5 when i was younger. I dont think he was that tall but the full 6´3 is not impossible. He clearly looks shorter now than 20 years ago.
Space said on 4/Jul/22
@ Matt logan

Batista is slightly over 6’1.5”. Even today he’s still more 6’1.75-6’2”.

About 6’2.75” in his prime.

Prime Bautista about 6’2.5-6’2.75”

Prime Rock about 6’2.25”-6’2.5”

Prime Triple H, Goldberg, & Lesnar about 6’1.75”-6’2”

They’ve all lost a visible amount of height. Lesnar has lost the least, if any at all.

Around 6'2.5" afternoon max right now.
As always said, The Rock, Lesnar and Batista are almost twins in height :)

Wouldn’t that make them triplets?

Hey rob do you think Dave has not the posture in pictures because whenever he’s next to other celebrities, his posture seems to not be the best.
Editor Rob
He does drop height at times
MikeZ said on 3/Feb/22
Hey rob can we get a peak height Batista on this please
Mike z said on 3/Feb/22
@ mojeime maybe it’s the boots he was wearing… some wrestling boots are 2 inch thicker+ these boots are worn by Kane, mark Henry, and big show. This video was also when Batista was well into his 30s and wrestling. I would say that plays a factor into losing height. I would guess at least 6”3-6”3.25 for prime Batista
Mike z said on 3/Feb/22
@space I doubt Batista was standing in something lol. I posted this video because it’s probably the only video where Batista actually stands right. I’m every photo/video he posture is bad

Hey rob do you think at peak Batista could have been a little bit over 6’3 because during his evolution days he looked close to randy Orton’s height.
Editor Rob
Absolute most I'd ever guess would be 6ft 3 and change as a possible peak.
mojeime said on 5/Jan/22
@MikeZ
Batista prob had lifts on. From what i remember at most recent Evolution Reunion Randy even in his normal shoes (without wrestling boots on) was noticeably taller than HHH and Batista. If Randy is legit 6'4, Batista is maybe 6'2 at best. If Randy is "only" 6'3 at best as many people who met him claimed than Batista is only in 6'1 range.

It's funny how even back in the day Randy was billed at 6'4 sometimes, and sometimes 6'5 by JR but he was clearly taller than 6'6 billed Batista and 6'4 billed HHH lol.
MikeZ said on 28/Dec/21
I think Batista should have a peak and current. Here is a video of Batista back in 2005 at new year revolution backstage with Randy Orton. Click Here Batista here looks as tall as Randy Orton. This was prime Batista and current Batista has a very poor posture which alone can make him look .25-.5 inch shorter. Also given that he was a bodybuilder and 10+ years or wrestling I would say he has at least lost .5-.75 inch so I think prime Batista was 6'3.5
John moss said on 24/Dec/21
To me Batista seems like somewhere between 6'3-6'5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/21
Very tough call, berta. Both dudes could look solid 6ft3 range. Batista was far more muscle bound and may have appeared taller than he really was. For years I actually believed he was taller than Orton!

I’d give Dave the full 6ft3 as a peak
berta said on 30/Oct/21
rampage is you would have guessed who was taller of batista and the rock 20 years ago, who would you have guessed? I really dont think batista was shorter. He could look very legit 6´3 back in the day. Dwayne could also seem that but other times barely 6´3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/21
Rock and Batista peak could have been similar, more a case of the latter being the full 6ft3 though
berta said on 23/Oct/21
he can look 189 alot with chris pratt other times 190cm. I think pratt could be pushing 188 on good days and that makes batiskta 190. At peak i really think 191 is possible. I dont know if dwayne johnson really was taller 20 years ago.
Crixus said on 20/Oct/21
Not entirely sure why he doesn't have a peak height listing as well, just like The Rock does. Flat 6'3 peak and a weak 6'2 out of bed today.

0 chance 6'3-6'3.5. 6'4 randy Orton had at least 1.5 on batista back then.
Rounak Singh said on 3/Aug/21
Ok,so maybe he was around 6'3-3.5 range in prime similar like edge.
Alex 6'0 said on 2/Aug/21
Was no more than 6'2.5 maybe bit less. 6'4 Orton had like 2 inches on him or close
Rounak Singh said on 1/Aug/21
Rob do you think he could measure nearer 6'4" in early 2000s.
Editor Rob
that doesn't seem possible to me
Daniel Hammad said on 30/Jul/21
Hey rob how come Dave looks 6’4 sometimes
Editor Rob
everybody has the ability to sometimes look taller or shorter. If you watch a lot of footage and photos you can sometimes get a better idea of an average figure amongst all of that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/21
Rob, peak who do think measured taller between Batista and Rock?


The more I look at both guys, it could really be a coin toss
Editor Rob
Dave could have lost half inch too, they may well be quite close peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/21
6ft3 range prime wouldn't surprise me, today I doubt less than 6ft2½, he may have lost less than we think. He seems to have held up better than The Rock
Halb said on 15/Jul/21
THere's a pic of Dave and Winston Duke, Duke dwarfs Dave.
Editor Rob
yeah I made a short last month (scheduled in the future) and put that in it, it really makes him look 6ft 2!
Ben Bell said on 3/Jul/21
I was ringside in 05 and he was the biggest guy I’d ever seen. Looked 6’5 and far more impressive than Sid in 97. Looking back I’m guessing he had lifts at the time. He looked so much taller in evolution.
Hard to get his height as he has terrible posture, bent knees and slouching. The double whammy.
Could be 6’3.5, could be as low as 6’2. Depends what he can stretch out to when stood tall I guess.
It’s amazing how both Him and Rock never stand tall. It seems their posture is all about presenting size, looking as wide as possible rather than tall.
FriedChicken said on 25/Jun/21
Both are leaning in that photo.
Alex 6'0 said on 13/Jun/21
Chaos 6'2.5 i could agree but no more. 6'2 flat isnt impossible

With John cena. Can't see footwear to be exact but if we have cena at 6'0-6'0.25 then batista looks 6'2.5 max.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/21
6ft4 out of bed peak isn't necessarily unrealistic since there's an argument that he was a solid 6ft3 in his prime...same could be said for The Rock.

He was actually billed as high as 6ft7 in WCW
Shayz said on 23/May/21
189cm,Rock 190cm.
James B 171.5 said on 20/May/21
even 6'4 max is exaggerated obviously

I find it hilarious how every source I could find lists him as 6' 6". I'd say 6' 4" max.
Alex 6'0 said on 16/May/21
Early 50s he's most likely shrunk a fraction. 6'2.5 id say. Was always billed 6'5 and sometimes 6'6. To really get away with 6'6 billing on tv you really need to be at least 6'4
viper said on 10/May/21
He hasn't shrunk any.

Always been 6-2

Well he looked very much to 6'3" when he was 30 or 35 now 52 he looks like 6'2 and half obviously he is taller than chris pratt i saw him in a photo with hemsworth hemsworth stood tall but dave was a little bent they seem like same so conclusion his peak height was 190 or 191 cm 6'3" nowdays 189 6'2 and half
Dingdong da 5'5 1/8" said on 3/Apr/21
IN my opinion Bautista looked sometimes shorter than Pratt is about maybe 6’1 1/2”-6’1 5/8” so I struggle about robs listing 6’2 3/4” I also see him struggle to look 6’2”. So this guy maybe at his peak I was 6’2”
viper said on 1/Apr/21
He's in his early 50s, not mid.

It is interesting that he began his wrestling career at 30
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Apr/21
No less than 190cm peak, agreed with Juggernaut.
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 29/Mar/21
Google has him at 6'6" (198 cm), while his claims were 6'5" (196 cm) and also 6'4" (193 cm).

He began his wrestling carrier in 1999 when he was 30 years old and retired after 20 years, in 2019 when he was 50 years old. I believe that he lost some height in that time, also considering all the injuries he had as well.

In his prime wrestling years he did look visibly taller then 6'2" (188 cm) guys which makes me believe that he clearly was in the 190 cm range.

Nowadays, in his mid-fifties, I would go with the following:

Peak - 190,5 cm (6'3")
Current - 189,2 (6'2.5")
Alex 6'0 said on 28/Mar/21
6'2.5 peak. Today uncertain
Robbe said on 21/Mar/21
Suotamo is upgraded now to 6'11, so we can look again this pic.

Click Here

Dave appears pretty much bang on 6'2 there. Suotamo is though slouching there, so it's not the best picture to judge Dave's height, but i think it's pretty safe to say he is not over 6'2 today. So he is a bit overlisted.
juggernaut said on 19/Feb/21
I agree that Bautista should have a peak and current height listed, He was easily 6'3' in his peak and today a little above 6'2', he always edged out Goldberg, Triple H and Lesnar too.. he was same as the Rock & Edge..he looked bigger than Dwayne in their 2004 WrestleMania match but not taller.. easy 190cm peak for Batista
berta said on 8/Feb/21
at peak i really think he looked atleast 6´3 but today he can look 189 alot.
QM6'1QM said on 29/Jan/21
Rob's listing are excellent number, but downgrade of 1/4 (1/2 ?!) does much matter today.

The Rock, Batista, R Reigns, Goldberg they're pretty the same height brothers, 6'2" range (up or down mm)!

viper said on 1/Jan/21
95% agreed ;)
slim 6'1 said on 26/Jan/21
I’ve said it before 190 on the dot like Chris Hemsworth both should have 6’2 and seven eighths listings
Almost 180cm guy said on 22/Jan/21
I think it's time to peak height for Bautista when he is 52 years old now. I'd say Bautista was at least 6ft 3 if not 6ft 3.25. Here are some of his photos alongside Stone Cold from 2007: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
You can see a good two inches between Bautista and Stone Cold in these photos. Bautista was 38 at the time and Stone Cold 42, so neither of them could have lost anything noticeable at the time. Rob, can you get Bautista peak height?
Mike Sui said on 21/Jan/21
He claims 198 cms, that's just crazy!!! 190cms in the morning at best if i'm generous.

6-4 David Noel had close to 3 inches on him in 2006.

Even 6-2 RZA looks taller.

He can look 6-1 quite a bit.

Find a photo of Batista standing tall with straight legs, he’s a major sloucher.
I could see him standing fully straight at 6’4.
6’2.5 with his regular hunched posture.
Genau said on 23/Dec/20
Whats the highest and lowest youd go for him Rob
Editor Rob
6ft 3-3.25 is a possible range many would give him, I don't rule the idea out and that maybe he has lost 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

I think he just scraped 6’3 in the 2000s, probably down to 6’2.5 now. He’s a guy who you’d think would be bigger because he’s 260 pounds of solid muscle


It's funny you say that...I've seen Batista, Lesnar, Goldberg and Triple H up close...and I could not believe that I was actually looking down at them slightly (I'm 6ft4). They still easily had 40lbs or on me but they were not how I envisioned them in person...I assumed all of those guys would be looming above me
FriedChicken said on 9/Oct/20
Yeah 189 cm (6'2.5) for Bautista nowadays is probably what he'd measure.
Hasnain Zia said on 1/Oct/20
I just saw his pics with Triple H during the evolution reunion on smack down and he looked about 1.5 inches taller. He is no less than 6'2.5. But a very bad posture.

I saw Batista and sheamus barefoot next to each other in one of sheamus's workout videos, they both look the same. Batista might just be a hair taller, I'd say 6'2'25 for Dave today, 6'3' in his prime..lost almost an inch due to surgeries over the years
198cmDude said on 28/Sep/20
I think his peak height was indeed about 193cm (6'4), wwe usually add 2 inches to wrestler's height, therefore he was listed as a 198cm or 6'6ft guy,in the wrestling gear he would be my height, I can almost guarantee. However, he is probably a bit shorter nowadays, maybe 192 or 191.5cm...still a very big dude.
Bobadob said on 25/Sep/20

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

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

Exacto, viper
Always around 6'2-6'2.5 range from 2000-2010.

Doesn’t look much taller than HHH. I’d say now 6-2
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

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.

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..

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.

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 .

Do you agree with me @Rob

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.
