He doesn’t look 6-5 here. 6-4.75 imo.
James.B 172cm said on 4/Mar/23
Interesting the rock looks 6’4.5 in comparison

Must be a camera illusion or something?

It’s easy to forget how much taller Dwayne Johnson could genuinely seem back in his early acting days, he’s a rare 50ish actor who could’ve believably already lost an inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/22
The Rock is easily pulling off 6ft3½ with him

Actually if this guy is a full 6ft5, you could make the case that Rock looked a strong 6ft3 opposite him in mo

@Miss Sandy Cowell:
He's got a gigantic dome piece for sure. I'd say 10.5 inches, at least.
Nik Ashton said on 16/Aug/21
He looks no less than this! ⛰
Progking184 said on 7/Aug/21
6'4.75 maybe? Could definitely look 6'5 though, or even 6'6 to some.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jul/21
@ Rob anybody who's interested - How long do you reckon Deobia's head is? 🤔

He can have six foot five from me. 😄 What a huge guy!

Hey Rob, wasn't he in The Foreigner (2003) with Steven Seagal? It was a terrible film but he looked like he was an inch taller than Seagal in that movie, so i think 6’5” is fine for him.
Editor Rob
I cannot recall much about the Foreigner now.
Canson said on 25/Feb/21
@Rampage: he doesn’t seem to stand straight all the time possibly because of his weight. Most 6’5 range guys don’t lose a full inch with Christian and another friend of mine who is similar to him only losing what you and I lose (3/4”); but he could be a candidate because of his weight. Also Vincent Caleb is another guy who Is almost 6’5 and loses 3/4” like we do
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/21
Didn't think there was more than 2in between him and Rock
184guy2 said on 1/Feb/21
191.5 for Rock is a bit too high
191cm at very most
Canson said on 1/Dec/20
@Editor Rob: did you reduce his height? He was listed 6’5.25 before right?

@Christian: I do agree with the peak Rock estimate though. 189/190 for him
Editor Rob
been on 6ft 5 for a good while now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/20
I think there's roughly an inch between Urban and Brakes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/20
Rob, could you make a case for these?

Oparei - 195cm
Rock - 191.5cm
Brake - 187.5cm
Urban - 184.5cm
Editor Rob
last time I watched Doom I did think Oparei could pulled off 196cm, Brake 187-187.5, Rock near 191, Urban just about 184

Andrea said on 19/Jan/15
I meant better than the photo you posted... In that photo, The Rock looks to close to him to be true! Look at him with a measured 6'4.75 guy like Charles Barkley, i think you can safely say there are 3 inches between them! The Rock is a strong 6'2 today and maybe 6'2.5-2.75 at his peak!
Barkley was measured 6'4 5/8".
OriginalAnon said on 26/Jun/20
He could be 196.
Ali Noufal said on 6/May/20
Rob's head goes near his chin, and his head is probably around 10-10.25 inches. So I'd say he's near 6ft 5 like 6ft 4 3/4 or 6ft 4 7/8.
Nik said on 12/Mar/20
This is what I call a towering!
joec said on 17/Feb/20
Rob, how thick were your sneakers in this picture?
Editor Rob
Some merrell that day which were in 0.7 range
Nik Ashton said on 26/Sep/19
6’5” is fine!
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: if he edges me today it’s likely mm’s not even a CM. Peak I doubt it was even a full CM likely about 194.5 at a low and maybe .5-.75cm more than me. A peak Dr J was 6’5.5 area maybe a full 197 and he was an inch taller than Jordan and Barkley
Jdubbz said on 21/Apr/19

I was really confused for a second, then I realized I was around 6'4.5 when you made that comment lol. I agree though, Barkley is probably your height these days, 6'4 5/8 peak.
Canson said on 10/Feb/19
@Shashank 6’3 3/8: if Barkley still edges me today it’s not by much. And wouldn’t be noticeable. Probably only the difference between Jdubbz and me. But I’ve heard guys such as Bill Belichick who have met him and has his own 6’4” QB to compare him to call him 6’4” as well
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 9/Feb/19
If his low was 6'4 5/8 could he have shrunk by atleast 1/4 inch. But ya what your saying is true, barkley and you would be dead same now and maybe there would have been a 1/4 th inch diff. in his prime.I guess when we talk about 1/4 inch we are never sure but there is always a possibility
Canson said on 4/Feb/19
@Shashank 6’3 3/8: i know people who have met Barkley before and they say he’s my height or around my height. One of which met him when he played and spent time around him as he was associated with the league. He estimated 6’4-6’5 range. Another one said he was only 6’4 then a buddy of mine who is 6’3 said he was 6’4.5 on the dot in front of him when he met him in a bar at a resort. He also golfed with him and said that he appeared 1.5” taller than him at all times. My guess is that the 6’4 5/8 is near a low for him when he measured it at the olympics in 1992. I think he would’ve edged me at his prime but the difference may or may not have been noticeable between us if he dipped to 6’4.5 for his low. I would say it wouldn’t exceed a CM between us peak if that. I also have Michael Jordan as the same height as he was at his peak. Jordan could’ve been maybe 6’4 5/8 tops as well as he was said to have measured 6’4.5 when he was drafted
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 4/Feb/19
@ Canson
I agree with you on barkley being on the 6'4.5 mark.He could have also shrunk a bit by now since he's in his 50s.
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
@Shashank 6’3 3/8: I would give a bit more than that. Barkley measured 6’4 5/8 in 1992 so it’s likely that is his normal low but he’s been said by most to be around 6’4.5. 5/8 is about 1/2 but a guy who measures 6’4 5/8 could dip to 6’4 1/2 easily at a low especially at the end of the day. As for his 7/8 measurement I’m not so sure that he wasn’t really measured at 6’4 5/8 and they misprinted. I’ve never seen the NBA list in 1/8” increments only 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full. Michael Jordan had 6’4 7/8 but I believe that to have been his college measurement perhaps. They said Olympic which is possible but it is said to be UNC. Having played ball in College I was measured at a 6am practice a time or two myself. Jordan is 6’4.5 like Pat Riley said
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
@Jdubbz: I think they’re standing similar. But I agree 6’5 for him def not 6’6”. I have Barkley as around your height. Maybe he’d edge by a couple mm 194.5 or 194.6 peak but I can’t see higher. And really he could be a true definition of 6’4.5 at a low like you are even at his peak
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 27/Jan/19
@ canson
I guess there would be a difference max 1/8 inch.
Jdubbz said on 26/Jan/19
@Canson: I bet he would. Do you think he's standing better than Rob in this pic? If not, I honestly think he looks 6'5 flat here.
Canson said on 14/Jan/19
He looks like he would edge Barkley
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
Looks 6'5.25 with footwear advantage .
Maybe a tad below 6'5.Could be same as someone like charles barkley
Jordan87 said on 6/Dec/18
Take his footwear into account and he is just under 6'5". 6'4.75" and has the right to claim 6'5".

Other guys claiming 6'5" Like Lundgren, Momoa, and the Rock would be looking up a good bit to this fellow.
Jdubbz said on 17/Nov/18
Looks shorter than he is because of that gigantic head. Considering the footwear advantage, I'd put him between 195cm and 6'5. Something like 6'4.85
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
Looks 195cm with Rob
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
He may not be standing as straight as possible but I couldn’t see 6’6” either way. Maybe he’s 6’5 or a stronger 6’5 if he did but with Rob looks 6’4.75 honestly
berta said on 30/Apr/18
rob the strange thing with this guy is that in the photo he really look 6 foot 5 and i believe you if you say he is.could be 1/4 wrong of course but how was dwayne jhonson able to look only 3-3,5 cm shorter than him in those photos? well we dont see their shoes. but there is no way there is 5 cm difference in height by looking at the photos.dwayne looks like a legit 192 guy beside him. those steroid guys are hard. one year they look a height and then 5 years later they look 1 inch shorter.
Editor Rob
In Doom I think Rock still looked 6ft 3 and Oparei 6ft 5.
Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/18
Take his footwear into account, he is something like 6'4.75 to 6'5. Certainly not the 6'6" he claims.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/17
Ridiculous to hear The Rock claim 6ft5 then appear next to this guy clearly 2in shorter
Csimpson 6ft said on 26/Jun/17
Im not really sure on Oparei he could be either 6ft 5 or 6ft 4.75 its a toss up for me, what do you think is likier for him Rob? 6ft 5 or 6ft 4.75?
World Citizen said on 29/May/17
Good listing.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@Rob: he has an abnormally sized head. It's tough to pinpoint his height honestly. He could be claiming shoes as most celebs do or because he is a bit on the heavy side he claims 6'6" to compensate which is a thing most heavier guys do they will take their morning height and morning weight
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@Rob: he has an abnormally sized head. It's tough to pinpoint his height honestly.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have said abnormal, just a good 10 and a bit inches, although I know my head is further from the camera there.
Ned Schneebly said on 20/Dec/16
Rob, I just saw Deobia on a Minder episode from 1993. He did look around 6'5" then, so I can go along with this height.
Editor Rob
Ned, he really is probably around 6ft 5 on the nose and 6ft 6 in shoes, I'd be surprised if 6ft 6 barefoot.
Aza said on 11/Oct/16
He's got great posture for a big fella. Must do a lot of stars!
josh jeffords said on 11/Oct/16
Wow that dude is big you say 6 5 and believe it.
He was bigger than all of cast of Doom no counting the cg monster that killed him..
He could likely puff up and try for the half but I dont see 6 6.
His claim could be school or college a man that large would likely have back knee and neck injuries.
Mine cost me 3/4 of an inch and im short to begin with.
Aza said on 7/Oct/16
He looks as listed and seems very happy about it too!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/16
Rock probably thinks this guy is 6ft7!
Jordan87 said on 3/Oct/16
Exactly 6'5 minus the .25 shoe Advantage, 6'4.75". Large Fellow this guy is holy smoke.
Canson said on 1/Oct/16
S.J.H: yep. Weak 6'5 guy claiming 6'6. That's not normal unless they're pro athletes or actors either. most 6'5 guys outside of that don't lie up really
Csimpson 6ft said on 30/Sep/16
Could be a weak 6ft 5 guy
Johan said on 30/Sep/16
Comfortably taller than guys who are listed at 6ft 4. I wouldn't put him under 6'5", he has barely any hair compared to guys like Joe or Tom.
Moke said on 30/Sep/16
Looks 6'3 against 6'0.5 Tom Wlaschiha. What do you say, Rob?
Editor Rob
in person he's a big fellow, at least 4 inches taller than Tom up close I feel.
S.J.H said on 30/Sep/16
6'4.5 guy claiming 6'6
184guy said on 3/Sep/16
Rob,who looks taller,This gentle,Hopper or Joe ?
Editor Rob
I think they both are within similar zone, barefoot I wouldn't think they would measure much different.
Hopper standing on his own, he has a frame that adds to an overall taller impression - I've no doubt people guess Hopper over 6ft 5 in person.
The Man said on 3/Aug/16
Deobia has more upright posture than Rob plus thicker shoes, and he's still not quite a head taller. 6'4.5" seems best for him. He could be 195cm, but no higher than that.
Editor Rob
he does claim to be 6ft 6 but I think a 6ft 5 is what he is. On Doom he could look very tall, and that cast isn't short, Urban over 6ft, Rock about 6ft 3, Richard Brake over 6ft 1...
Jam said on 1/Aug/16
Rob, who's taller Deobia or Joshua?
Editor Rob
Joshua looks taller in person.

Better photo of The Rock and Deobia

actually thats a worse photo but anyways not sure where you are getting 2+ inches in that shot from given its roughly 4 inches from the eyebrows to top of head unless you are talking an acromegalic or something...

thats a 1 inch difference Click Here
afka9 said on 18/Jan/15
he look 6'6 this picture
Andrea said on 17/Jan/15
Better photo of The Rock and Deobia: Click Here
The Rock looks easily 2 inches shorter and maybe a bit more...
6'2.5 for The Rock who in 2005 was still 33 (so certainly still at his "peak") and 6'4.75 for Deobia could be on the money!
Rida said on 15/Jan/15
In reality deobia - 6'5
Rock 6'2 peak
AlexMahone said on 11/Jan/15
Lonestar --> Deobia was way off an inch taller than the rock. There were 4-5cm between them.

This is true, I had to say that Deobia can't be 191cm.

Rampage --> Yes, I agree 100%.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/15
In Doom

The Rock - 6ft3¼(191cm)
Deobia Oparei - 6ft4¾(195cm)
Lonestar said on 4/Jan/15
AlexMahone, Deobia was way off an inch taller than the rock. There were 4-5cm between them.
Bud said on 22/Dec/14
Rob this guys eye level should be 13 cm?
Editor Rob
I don't know exactly but almost 5 inches is possible...his head really isn't that much bigger than mine, my head is slightly further away making it a bit smaller than normal...

If you look at him side by side with another bloke (who is shorter than me and has a smaller head than me) you can see his head isn't really that big: Click Here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/14
If he's 6ft3 then The Rock is 6ft1-2!
AlexMahone said on 17/Dec/14
What are you talking about? 6'3 (191cm) for Deobia Oparei? This is madness....

Please show here a picture where Oparei is 1 inch taller than The Rock and we see the footwear as well. The pictures what are you talking about taked way back in 2005. I think The Rock was in those days near to 6'4 (193cm).

But for Oparei is 191cm? No way! Oh wait....this man is shrunk as well, or wears cowboy boots with Rob. So Deobia Oparei height is 5'11.75....This is cocrrect, right? :))
i turn lesbians bi said on 15/Dec/14
He's about an inch taller than the rock- so if the rock is between 6'2-6'3, deobia is about 6'3-6'4
Lonestar said on 15/Dec/14
Thanks for corrected me. Bad for my typo. I mean next to 5'8 rob he look more like 6'4.5 range
Lillo thomas said on 14/Dec/14
Deobia is looking like a legit 6'5 next to Rob.

he was taller than michael sam only a few months ago and sam was measured 6'2 flat barefoot at the combine this year, 1 minute mark Click Here

Michael Sam was measured at 6'1.5 at the senior bowl.
Height182 said on 3/Dec/14
Yeah Alex, an inch does seem a bit too much but who knows. Maybe his hair used to add some extra height. The Rock also had a Slimmer Taller looking build back in 2000 - 2002.
Alex 6'0 said on 1/Dec/14
Height182, I could see him taller at his peak but minimal. Fraction of an inch. No way can I see an inch lost
MrTBlack said on 29/Nov/14
Dwayne Johnson was at least an inch if not more taller than Paul Walker in the recent fast and furious movie. I doubt he's below 6'3".
Height182 said on 26/Nov/14
@Alex 6'0: For sure I believe that Rock used to be taller. Could look 6'3'' - 6'4'' easily in the ring. Today he struggles to look taller than someone like Cena who is very honest about his height. Yeah I think Rock is a solid 6'2'' today.
Alex 6'0 said on 25/Nov/14
Height182, yea I didn't really notice the footwear advantage. Prob very minimal. So youd agree perhaps 6'2.5 peak and today 6'2. I think 1/2 inch at most he's lost prob less. 6'2 1/2 peak and today 6'2-6'2 1/4. Yea he does look just 2 inches over Cena who I have at 6'0-6'0 1/4.
Vegas said on 25/Nov/14
Alex 6'0 says on 24/Nov/14
Height182, maybe Rock went from 6'2.5 to 6'2 flat nowadays? A legit 6'2.5 can pull off 6'4 to people in person let alone on TV plus with a muscular build it can make you appear a bit taller. If Rock lost height Im thinking 1/4 to 1/2 inch tops.

he was taller than michael sam only a few months ago and sam was measured 6'2 flat barefoot at the combine this year, 1 minute mark Click Here
Height182 said on 25/Nov/14
@Alex 6'0'': Rock also had footwear advantage over Orton. Yeah it must be the last few years he's lost height. I don't think Rock would measure anything more than 188cm today. The guy barely had 2 inches over Cena, In almost every segment/event.

If Rock lost height Im thinking 1/4 to 1/2 inch tops. His posture sometimes can be relaxed. Yea in 2004 Rock looked 1.5-2 inches shorter than Orton but Rock would have still been at his peak in 2004. If he lost any height it would have been over the last few years

@Judd i think Deobia is a solid 6ft 5.

Is what I've just said....I have your approbation, Connor?
184.3cm said on 22/Nov/14
This good evidence Rob that Dwayne Johnson is 6'3 ? Didnt look more that 2inches difference in most photos. In fact looked more 1.5 inches.
Editor Rob
It's no doubt Dwayne was 6ft 3...if he's lost height in last 5 years, that is a question.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/14 least we can put the below 6ft4 claims for Salmon to bed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/14
Rob are you sure there was less than 1in between this guy and Colin Salmon?
Editor Rob
Deobai is a much better photo as he's standing pretty much perfectly.

but yes, up close I really don't think there's much between those 2 guys.

For instance, a 6ft con friend I watched these photos being taken: Click Here.
Connor183 said on 20/Nov/14
@Judd i think Deobia is a solid 6ft 5.
Height182 said on 20/Nov/14
I really do think The Rock has lost some height. I really don't know what it is, but Rock could pull off 6'4'' to me in the 90's. Yet then, he was a SOLID 2 inches shorter than Randy Orton in 2004 face to face. Rock was in boots and Orton was in regular dress shoes. Strange.
Ryan said on 19/Nov/14
195 cm . Deobia
Judd said on 19/Nov/14
the top of his ears are between 6'0-6'0.5", and he has a large head...i also think with a normal posture the top of his ears would reach the 6'1 value, so if he's not properly a legitimate 6'5", he's very close to it...taller than a legitimate 6'4" one...
miko said on 18/Nov/14
Rock is 6'3, and this dude is 6'5, makes sense.
Tommo said on 17/Nov/14
Account for the difference in posture, he doesn't look anything over 6'3 with your 5'4 friend Rob.
Editor Rob
the 5ft 4 guy was first up and while Deobai dropped a bit of posture with him, certainly it was nothing like 3-4 inches!

Sean73 says on 15/Nov/14
This proves too me Dwayne Johnson has always been a lift wearer.

rock is wearing sandals Click Here better shot of the footwear...not sure he is hiding any lifts there :D Click Here

vosloo is listed 6ft 1.75 here so would be about 6'3 in the shoes he is wearing if that listing is correct.
Alex 6'0 said on 17/Nov/14
With a 10 inch head Rob is 1-1.5 inches above his chin so 8.5-9 inches difference. 6'5 is right. Lowest you could argue is 6'4.5 but I don't think he's that low
Sean73 said on 15/Nov/14

Andrea said on 14/Nov/14
He's got a huge head or is it just a camera effect, Rob? He looks about 6'5, yeah, but in the picture with The Rock that Vegas posted (your link doesn't work) he doesn't even look 6'4! And The Rock is not even 6'3!
Editor Rob
about 10 inches, my head is slightly further away...

Incidentally This guy is 5ft 4 in person...I thought he dropped 2 inches in posture with that chap...
Alex 6'0 said on 13/Nov/14
My first thought was maybe 6'4.5 but he does have a long head and Rob's head is bit above his chin so solid 6'5 seems right

Looks a decent enough 6'5 to me. I know you get asked this question on every page with someone listed as 6'5 tall as HC15 in person Rob?
gabriel said on 10/Dec/06
I met Deobia Oparei , in fact I had his contact and lost it . I would like to reestablish this conection but I guess it is somehow difficult. He is indeed very tall.

he was taller than the rock in doom id say by an inch im not sure if he is 6'4 tho id say 6'3.5
