This guy claims to be 6'6 and for The Rock to be 6'5.
berta said on 21/Jan/19
190,5 peak. COuld sometimes look little over that even. Today he could look 187 i many photos ut thats mostly posture is my guess. I think standing tall he is 188,5-189 still
Canson said on 20/Jan/19
6’3.25-.5 out of bed at his peak and 6’2.5-.75 at a low
6’2.75 out of bed today and 6’2” at a low
Canson said on 19/Jan/19
He knows he isn’t 6’5”.
Dwight calvin said on 19/Jan/19
I think he's 6'3" in the morning and 6 feet 2 and a half at night who care wtf. guys.
rawdshaq said on 18/Jan/19
The Rock is probably 6' 2" but adds 2 - 3 inches to his height, he has gotten away with it for most of his adult life. I mean even in person he has told people he was 6' 5" without any hesitation so he could actually think he is 6' 5".
Spencer said on 18/Jan/19
6'3.25" peak. 6'2.5" now.
hridoy said on 16/Jan/19
he is 6'2" and nothing
Canson said on 16/Jan/19
@rawdshaq: he knows he’s not 6’5 or 6’4. He could’ve been 6’4+ in boots early morning when he was younger tho
rawdshaq said on 10/Jan/19
Do you guys think the Rock is convinced he is 6' 5"? Haha he is probably like 6' 2"
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
Peak 190 tops
Today 188
Kurtz said on 9/Jan/19
6 2 for fluct. 102-110 kilograms. Case closed.
Reptiloid said on 9/Jan/19
Doesn’t look full 6’2 today. Probably like 6’1.5”-6’1.75. Peak height was more like 6’2.5”. WWE exaggerates height and his good muscle tone and shorter actors alongside helped him being perceived as a big guy.
Public Enemy said on 9/Jan/19
Peak 191 cm
Current 189 cm

There are multiple sources that prove that Dwayne Johnson is not 6'5". We know this unless you're somebody that only follows and uses Google heights as a trustworthy and reliable source. Not the point, getting off topic. He was more than an inch shorter than Pablo Schrieber when they were both standing up next to each other in Skyscraper. The picture with him and Charles Barkley should be enough proof to show people that he was never 6'5". You don't even have to see that exact picture to know though as there are a plethora of different photos and moments with other people that prove that he isn't 6'5". He's 6'3" at most. The Rock never looked as tall as people like Liam Neeson, Jeff Goldblum, Vince Vaughn, and Tim Robbins onscreen. In Baywatch, he didn't look that much taller than everybody else and sure as he'll didn't look 9 inches taller than Zac Efron. Funny because him and Neve Campbell are overlisted by 2 inches and starred together. He looked 5 inches taller than Karen Gillian in Jumanji and like 13 inches taller than Kevin Hart in Welcome to the Jungle and Central Intelligence. The Rock was 6'3" at peak.

Rema said on 7/Jan/19
He is 187cm top,maybe 188,no chance for 190.
Voltaire said on 6/Jan/19
Childson, saying something doesn't make it true. The Rock clearly goes by his WWE billed height, time for him to give it up.
Sonny Black said on 6/Jan/19
6’2.5 at the most, likely 6’2 flat.
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Jackson: not sure where Barkley falls today but his peak he was probably at least 194cm range not just a solid 6’4”. I can see the 6’4 5/8 he measured as believable or at worst maybe his low could’ve been 6’4.5. But to me anyone falling in the 6’4 3/8-5/8 range is considered 6’4.5 since the former would be measured during the day and the latter could drop to that at an extreme low not to mention they look the same
Jackson said on 4/Jan/19
@Childson

No the rock is not 6’4” Charles Barkely is 6’4” and he absolutely towered over the rock.
berta said on 4/Jan/19
very small chanse of him being under 190 peak and over 191 peak. Today, very small chanse of him being under 188 ore over 190
Canson said on 4/Jan/19
Rock is not 6’4 he’s 6’2.

the rock is 6. 4, he said he was with shaq and charles barkley.

That promo pic/poster with Statham and Rock was probably photoshopped. I don't think Statham wears lifts on his own, but he directors may want him to for certain roles or alongside much taller actors.

True_Height said on 31/Dec/18
@ Jackson and Juby, Hollywood crops images in their photo releases of short actors standing next to tall actors to make them look the same height. Statham is a legit 5'7 next to 5'7 Stallone and the Rock is a solid 6'2.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Dec/18
@Nils2

I think Statham had footwear advantage in that movie though.
Nils2 said on 25/Dec/18
@Christian
Well yes Rock looks 6'2 often. But there are a few occasions he looked 6'2.5+ aswell. With Hemsworth, Goldblum and Hasselhoff to mention a few recent ones.
My estimate is 6'2.25 but 6'2.5 is also fair.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Dec/18
@Nils2

Rock looking 5 inches taller than 5'8.75" listed Statham would mean that he's not over 6'1.75"
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
I think 189-190 was possible at his peak then again not sure. Eddie George appeared taller than him many years back. Today he’s hardly over 6’2” 188cm
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
His claim : 196 cm

Reality : at least 189 cm , at most 190 cm
michael loughrie said on 23/Dec/18
@jackson Thats just not a good picture, I think I'm around 5' 7" (lmao yep) and I get pictures with my 6 foot dad when we see each other and in some pictures he towers me and in others we look around the same height.
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Jackson: I think Statham is a lift wearer for sure
Nils2 said on 22/Dec/18
The Rock looks around 5 inches taller on other occasions with Statham. Looks like those boots could give a little extra.

@Jackson

That's crazy, lol.
Jackson said on 20/Dec/18
Here’s new picture of The Rock looking almost the same height as 5’8 3/4” Jason Statham... I’m really confused lol. Either rock is even shorter than we thought or Jason is wearing gigantic lifts.

Juby said on 20/Dec/18
First official movie still from "Hobbs and Shaw". Next to Jason Statham Dwayne looks not so tall! :D
Click Here

On the other hand, I saw a movie last night with Dwayne and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje who might be 6'1, and Dwayne was clearly taller than him couple of years ago. Adewale can't be 6'1 or Dwayne was close to 6'3 before he become Hobbs in Fast Five. No he looks no taller than 6'2.
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
@Junior: I believe similar but 6’2 today. Peak maybe 6’2.5 or .75. He’s too young to have lost anymore and it’s likely just from his lifestyle wrestling
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Dec/18
I have seem picture where Rock look 184-ish standing alone. Understand his muscular frame makes him shorter, so i doubt it if he is above 6'2.25". Still believe 6'2.75" peak not 6'3.
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Spencer: to be honest, he can look anywhere from a weak 6’2” or even 6’1” at times up to about 6’3”. I saw with he and Anthony Joshua he looked weak 6’2” same with Gronk. Gronk measured 6’6.25 early morning so likely 6’5.75 for site standard. With 6’3 7/8 Ndaumkong Suh as well another morning measurement of 6’3 7/8 so probably 6’3.5ish he looks maybe 6’1.5-6’2”. With Charles Barkley he looks somewhere around 6’2” or maybe a weak 6’2. With Michael Sam he looks a ful 6’2 or maybe as tall as you have him. Then I’ve seen others where he can look a little taller. I still think that he is a full 6’2”
Spencer said on 13/Dec/18
He looks 6'2" or 6.2".25" at most. I don't think he was ever more than 6'2.75" at peak. At age 46 maybe he has lost 1/4 of an inch or 1/2 an inch tops?
Andrea said on 10/Dec/18
To be honest, Nils2, I perfectly know why some posters are arguing a 2-2.5 inches difference between them (which clearly isn't the case), but I'll overlook it...
184guy2 said on 9/Dec/18
I remember first when I saw the pic of Barkley and Rock , I thought that Rock was 4''+ smaller , but I was Wrong . 7-8cms more likely
Canson said on 9/Dec/18
@Jackson: I don’t think he looked uncomfortable saying that. He probably knows he isn’t that tall and that it’s a joke what he said
Sakz said on 9/Dec/18
@Jackson Exactly that's basically what I was getting at.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Dec/18
@Canson: That looks like the same full photo to me except with a different background. Funny enough, Rock posted the other photo you're referring to on twitter to remark how he was 6'4", 260, yet Barkley and Shaq dwarfed him. I guess he couldn't bring himself to claim 6'4.5" or 6'5" while standing next to them, but you're right, there appeared to be a tilt in Barkley's favor. When I straighten it, the difference seems about the same as the full photo. I see a max 2" difference in that pic with Cena making it particularly laughable Rock claims to be 4", 4.5" and even 5" taller than Cena does. Much like Rock and Barkley basically claim the same heights!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Dec/18
@Canson and Jackson

He definitely knows he's no 6'4" or 6'5". He once indirectly admitted to being 6'3", by jokingly claimed that he's 5'9" wearing 6" lifts. 5'9" + 6" = 6'3"
Jackson said on 8/Dec/18
In my opinion he looked uncomfortable with Logan Paul and the fact that Logan was tall. He had to let everyone know “this is a big dude!” And “I’m 6 foot 4 and a half!”

He said these things because he really wants his image to reflect being a larger than life kinda guy. But he’s barely 6’2” in my opinion.
Sakz said on 8/Dec/18
@Jackson I'm sure he knows he doesn't measure 6'5 barefoot. He knows he's bigger than the average person anyway so many people won't really stop to think how big or tall he actually is. He was billed 6'5 as a wrestler, so like most he just went along with that because many can't really differentiate between those billings and real life.
Nils2 said on 8/Dec/18
Well i agree with Andrea.. i can't understand this 2-2.5 inch discussion
Myself said on 7/Dec/18
@Jackson
He seemed honest when claiming 6'4.5 to Logan Paul...maybe just a good actor
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
Lol this is not how a 6’0” guy should look next to a 6’5” guy or even 6’4.5 like he said on the video

Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Christian and Rising: this is the best quality pic of them imho. I saw a different angle favoring Barkley and it looked well over 3” I will say.

Click Here
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Rising: I don’t think Barkley has the footwear advantage either looking at both of their shoes. But in the pic without the line, that looks as if Rock’s head is higher than that to me at least. It may be more than 2” but not 3” imho. The top of Rock’s scalp comes to the top of Barkley’s forehead. Let’s say if Barkley had hair (military or crew cut to be exact) it would be where the top of the side of his head before you got to the hair. It’d be better if they were right next to each other
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Jackson: he knows he isn’t that tall barefoot. I wonder if maybe he measured early morning in cleats in his youth or boots and got 6’4.5 and rounded up. It’s no different than Shawne Merriman who claims he’s 6’5” and nowhere near it
Andrea said on 7/Dec/18
The Rock does look AT LEAST 3 inches shorter than Barkley there, so nothing over 6'1.75, assuming that Barkley really is as low as 6'4.75 (and that they have similar posture/footwear). And that picture dates back to 2013...
Jackson said on 6/Dec/18
Sometimes I wonder if The Rock is actually delusional enough to belive he’s 6’5” I mean I wonder if he knows he’s barely 6’2” on a good day. Im sure he goes to the doctor and gets measured.... my guess is he’s aware but he just lies. You would think he’d maybe be more honest as he gets older but even less than a year ago he proudly said “I’m 6 foot 4 and a half”
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Dec/18
@Christian: I respect that. And yeah, all I can say is what the difference is in the photo as we know that can be more or less than the actual difference. Interestingly, without the tilt, the other photo winds up pretty close to that, but notice Wahlberg doesn't even look a full 6" shorter than Rock much less 6.5". Unless he slipped some lifts in his Jordans, I don't think they'd add more than Rock's boots.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/18
@Rising

The only reason why I thought that it was a 7cm difference, is because I assumed Barkley had a slight footwear advantage. But I guess that's no longer the case. You're absolutely correct that the photographic difference between the two is around 8cm.
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Rising: I have the line a bit higher. Maybe over 2” flat but not more than about 7cm imho. I originally had 6-7cm but didn’t realize rock was in boots. I thought Barkley had footwear advantage. I was wrong perhaps
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Rising: I have the line a bit higher. Maybe over 2” flat but not more than about 7cm imho.
Nils2 said on 5/Dec/18
Rob how much taller do u think Barkley looks in those pics?
I really see around 3 inches but that doesnt mean i think he actually is 3 inches taller.
Photos are sometimes deceptive.
It's basically how a 6'2 man would look next to a 6'5 man.
If measured then maybe 6-7 cm is a fair guess.
Editor Rob
He had always looked 6ft 2 at most in the old Barkley photos. Whether they were the same distance and posture is harder to say.
miller said on 5/Dec/18
barkley has 3 inches on the rock so
the rock may have been 6.3 but today he can look under 6.2
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Dec/18
@Canson and Christian: I can't agree on this one. Click Here You can see the top of Rock's head is just the slightest bit above Barkley's eyebrows and I'd normally expect that was closer to 4" on Barkley's head. However, comparing their whole bodies in pixels, Barkley is 25 pixels higher, which proportionately comes out to about 3.1" taller if you start from their toes on their back feet(which basically lineup) or 3.3"-3.4" taller if you start from around their heels. If I compare the distance between their heads to a 10" head for each then I get basically a flat 3" difference or just over. So the absolute lowest I can see is 7.5 cm. A flat 7 cm difference isn't unreasonable, but I can't get guess that low myself. I also can't agree the difference would be smaller if they were side by side because they're side by side in the other pic and the difference is bigger even when you correct the tilt against Rock. I will say you could argue Barkley looks 6'5" max there with Marky Mark and Shaq if you believe he's not at a disadvantage compared to either, but I don't see that with Rock.
dessloch said on 4/Dec/18
ROB what is it that make people discuss on end the height of a man they never met nor will ever meet? I am fascinated by this.
I myself didn't become obsessed with height till my mid 20's
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have believed there was much interest in for instance celebrity feet, but then look at the wikifeet site - that has a lot more visitors thatn this site and is a very specific niche, showing there is interest in all sorts of aspects of celebrity.

Personally I don't judge if somebody is curious about height, weight, feet, clothing, birthdays, fashion style, hair colour, eyes, hobbies, ethnicity etc.

This site provides a database of estimates and an ability to discuss height with myself acting as a moderator. It caters for those who see their idols on screen or TV and are curious about how tall they might be. Maybe they looked huge or small in a show or film and somebody looked it up to find out...and also people like to compare themselves with celebrities.

I suppose when I think about it - at times when watching a film or show I have been curious about the age of a celebrity...maybe it's more because I have met a fair number now and also seen them when they were younger in films and it can be sobering thinking how time flies by quickly...
BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 4/Dec/18
I'd put him at around 6'2.25". His height varies because of his forward head posture but I don't think he's lost more than an inch. Pictures don't always do justice either.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Dec/18
@Rising

I don't see an 8cm difference, although I can see how that would be 7cm.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Rising: this pic is a bit better tho (same one below). If you expand it and go from the top of Rock’s head using lines, it’s in the 2” range. Really just looks 2” maybe 2.25”. Rock’s head is smaller than Barkley’s and he’s not right next to him. I think the Rock is 6’2” like you said but nothing less or more. If Barkley and Rock were next to each other it wouldn’t look as much as it does imho. Rock comes to where the side of Barkley’s forehead would stop at the side of his scalp. I can’t tell how thick the boots are but Barkley has thick sneaks on. Not sure how much advantage Rock would have maybe 1/4”-1/3”

Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Dec/18
@Canson: The absolute least I can see in the full pic(without considering shoes or posture) is 8 cm because Rock's head is just barely above Barkley's eyebrows. Rock can look 6'2" flat sometimes, but I'm still not sure he would measure less than Rob lists him.
Canson said on 29/Nov/18
@Jackson: you are absolutely right about footwear. I apologize.

@Rising: it’s only about 2” difference in this picture. The angle doesn’t help it but Rock comes up well above Barkley’s eyebrows. You and Jackson are right. Footwear advantage but the difference looks greater due to how far he and Barkley are standing apart from each other. Rock’s head is just about to the side of Barkley’s scalp. So even with Rock maybe having thicker shoes it’s still around 2.5”.

I still have Rock around a flat 6’2 today not much less and Barkley I stick with 6’4.5 tops.

I can’t belive even in 2017 Rock claimed “I’m 6 foot 4 and a half”
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Nov/18
Yeah, I never saw a footwear advantage for Barkley either. Barkley's sneakers look a pretty normal, not particularly thick kind and Rock does look to me like he's wearing the boots he has in the above pic. I'd still like to know the make and models so we can say for sure, but nothing about that photo ever suggested to me that Barkley had the advantage, especially since Barkley actually looks to have looser posture in the photos. However, current Steven Seagal does measure up significantly better to Barkley than Rock does. Seagal isn't over 6'3.5" any more and looks at least an inch taller than Rock compared to Barkley, imo depending on how much his bandana adds since Barkley looked over 3" taller than Rock to me.
Jackson said on 27/Nov/18
@Nils2
Yes! Those are the exact same Boots he is wearing in photo with Shaq and Barkley. Those are boots. Not sneakers.... and he’s still towered over. Heck look at rock with John Cena... looks under 6’2” for sure.
Zadk said on 27/Nov/18
6’3 at best
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Jackson: Rock is not wearing boots in the pic with Shaq and Barkley. Those are sneakers. Barkley (peak 6’4 5/8) handily edges Rock. So if he doesn’t have a footwear advantage it puts Rock at sub 6’2”
Nils2 said on 26/Nov/18

A type of boots he used to wear alot in the past.

Haha Barkley now uses cowboy boots ...
Canson said on 24/Nov/18
@Guanzo: rob met Seagal and pegged him 6’3.5 today not 6’4”. In their pic Seagal looks 6’2” range with his posture but I would give him the full 6’3” and Barkley 6’4.5.

@Christian: I have a 6-7cm difference between them only because Barkley has thicker footwear. So Barkley at 194.3, I would have Rock as 187.8 which is practically right at 6’2”. 6’1.9. Maybe 187.96 fits him too.
James-186cm said on 24/Nov/18

It's confirmed that Seagal's not 6'4" anymore, since Rob met him. He's most likely 6'3" range.

The Rock honestly looked max 6'1.75" assuming Barkley's 6'4.5". He didn't even look solid 6'2".
Zampo said on 23/Nov/18
This current listing is fine maybe 0.25 lower but it is fair. Photo's can only give you a range of where one looks they could measure within. Nothing else really. Most of these photo I see being pulled up prove that 6'1.5 - 6'2.5 range that is the height he roughly walks/stands about at. The question is how far is he off his measured height as I doubt most people ever stand or walk at their measured height. I have seen many who are around 0.5 inch off (even more) and others who are 0.2 inch off typically. I suspect the Rock falls in the category of those that a may be losing a little more than the average person (with his type of posture), nothing significant but I think there is a good chance if he was actually measured (where he would stand at his tallest) he would measure over 6'2.
Canson said on 22/Nov/18
@Christian: that’s actually 100% correct! Most guys my size wear 13-14 shoe
Canson said on 22/Nov/18
@Nils2: it looks close to 3 in the pic but Barkley has a thicker sneaker. Prob 2.5-2.75”. Rock looks max 6’2 next to a 6’4.5 (which would be his max today) Barkley. That’s about what Barkley was at his peak 6’4 5/8 perhaps but not sure if he’s lost height
Bruni said on 22/Nov/18
I've seen too many Google searches saying his height is 6'5" when he's only 6'3" Conan O'brien is 6'4" and standing next to Johnson, is clearly at least an inch taller than him.
Nils2 said on 21/Nov/18
Dwayne really looked no less then 3 inches shorter then Barkley. Unfortunately it's more like 2 inches with Conan. Ofcourse it can variate in photos, angles and footwear but he really looked surprisingly short next to Barkley. Especially knowing Barkley may not even be full 6'5.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Christian: agreed. it’s definitely 2.5-2.75” no less imo. I have Barkley as 194 range and Rock 188. Viper was right when he called It with Anthony Joshua and Rock (on Merriman’s page) with Rock looking max 6’2 or a little under as he actually looks 6’1.5-6’2 with Ndamukong Suh considering Suh’s 6’3 7/8 was in the morning. He also almost looks that with barkley

@MrTBlack: here he looks 6’2 tops. Ndamukong Suh measured 6’3 7/8 in the morning so probably just a weak 6’4 in reality (6’3.5). I only point out the morning part because the basis of heights on the site is supposed to be afternoon heights. I think Rock would be 6’2.5 in the morning however or close to it

How was that a 2" difference? It looked more 2.5"-3"
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Lanky: he probably doesn’t know any better

@MrTBlack: I’ll admit at times Rock can look taller others he can look 6’1” range. But usually 6’2” range

@Ronster: so if he is 6’4 today then how is 6’3 7/8 measured Ndamukong Suh close to 2” taller than he is? If you wanna call someone a height reducer, then you would be a height inflator

Honestly, all though I agree that Johnson's 6'5" claim is out there in most pics of him next to Barkely, he looks 2" shorter. I think that pic is a bad example of their height differences due to either footwear or location of the ground.

Rob, have you watched skyscraper yet?? Pablo who is over 6’5” (you even have him at barely under 6’5” is less than one inch taller than Dwayne all day long in equal footwear, yet you list Dwayne under 6’3”?? Johnson is still 6’4” minimum, and all the height reducers posting on these pages cannot change the truth. Time to post his true height on here of 6’4” I would have say .

@Christian and Canson

There is a correlation between shoe size and height but not always the case. Most men who are 6’0”-6’4” will usually wear 11-13 (large end of sizes) but not exclusive to those heights and shoe sizes.
Jackson said on 16/Nov/18
@Guanzo

No. The rock is absolutely not 6’4”. I guess I have to show you more proof than him already getting dwarfed by Barkley.

Here’s rock face to face with Kenny Anderson who was listed in the NBA at 6’0” !! And the nba always exaggerates... so I’m seeing rock maybe at 6’1”
And that’s very generous..

Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Jackson: that’s because Rock is a solid 6’2 guy. See him with Anthony Joshua who is 6’5.75 that’s close to a 4” difference same with Gronkowski. That’s a 4” difference and Gronk is likely a hair under 6’6” (measured 6’6.25 early morning at the combine). Most players measure about 1/2” less in the afternoon

It's not that much correlation. I think that an average 6'2" guy wears 12-13 shoes, but there are those who wear 16+ like Mark Henry, and there are those who wear 10 or less.

Shoe size and height are often correlated but not mutually exclusive to each other. I’m sure there are many more guys out there at your height who wear 10 and 11 than 14.

Rock has a size 13 foot. He mentioned it in a Twitter post once.

I'm 6-3 and wear 10. It means nothing.
mmthethruth said on 8/Nov/18
look guys you can cheat height all you want but you gotta have true to size shoes for workouts otherwise you wont be able to squat or do any leg exercises as hard as he does. and the rock had an under armour SIZE 15 !! (proof: his instagram posts about 3-4 months ago). Same shoe size as for Lebron James who's probably 6'8.5" Done some research and shoe size is in a decently strong relation to one's height.
Average dudes who have size 15 are in the 6'7-6'10 area, so we can just see how the Rock was meant to be even bigger than 6'3 genetically. Thoughts?

Looking at the difference between The Rock and Joe in the 'Rampage' promotion pictures is not a very good way to estimate the height of The Rock, as The Rock himself looks remarkably taller than Dean Morgan in those same pictures.
Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Oct/18
Whatever his peak and current height, his injuries have easily been serious enough to cause a half inch loss.

" he suffered several serious injuries in college football resulting in five knee surgeries, debilitating back trauma and medical reconstruction of his shoulder." Click Here
"Gotta warm up properly due to all my sexy lower body injuries from years of wrestling and football (two L4 & L5 low back disc ruptures, five knee surgeries, torn Achilles, tore both my quad and adductor from my pelvis and repaired three hernias all in one lovely emergency surgery)." Click Here
And way back in 2006: "DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON is talking about the injuries that have torn up his athlete-turned-movie-star body over the years. A complete shoulder reconstruction. Four knee surgeries. One by one, he ticks off his old football wounds. One, two, three ruptured disks, all during his senior year in college." Click Here

berta said on 31/Oct/18
the rock is hard to pin down. His posture makes him look like a 6 foot 2 guy a lot. Maybe peak he really was 6 foot 3 1/8- 1/4. Today he looks 6 foot 2 1/4-1/2. But the guy is not even 50 years old. I cant see him going from 191- 188,5 at that age. That would make him maybe 186 cm at age 60 and 183 at age 70 at best 180 at age 80. I think Robs listing is good. Half inch lost and he will probably lose about the same amount as CLint Eastwood when he is older.

I agree. I'd like to at least see a 6'2.25" listing.

Here's Rock wearing sandals back in 2001 at the Mummy Returns video release with 6'1.75" listed Arnold Vosloo: Click Here And leaning noticeably at the same event with Kane Hodder(listed 6'2.5" peak and 6'1" current: Click Here This likely shows Hodder's footwear as this was taken the same month and he's dressed the exact same: Click Here It depends on how tall you think Hodder was at 47, but it's likely his boots were at least in the 1.75" to 2" range similar to what Vin Diesel wears. Vosloo doesn't have thin shoes either so while I don't know exactly what they or Rock's sandals add, it's likely Rock was at a 2 cm minimum disadvantage with Vosloo and 3 cm minimum with Hodder and this is with Rock looking to drop an inch in posture with Hodder and at least some height with Vosloo. Rock still looks to have near an inch on Vosloo and it'd be conservative to estimate him standing as tall or a half inch taller than Hodder at that event. Rock's tendency to slouch has gotten worse, but it definitely looks to me like injuries caused him to lose height before he was even 40. I also agree with Vegas that the Manganiello comparison isn't great for comparing height, but I can't see any way to argue he looks 6'2" flat in that particular pic. I doubt Samuel L. Jackson was ever taller than 6'2", though and I'd be surprised if he was still a full 6'2" by 2007.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Oct/18
@Vegas

I'd say 2.5"-3" because Rock had a slight camera advantage over Joe. The difference would've been 2"-2.25" if they stood at an equal distance from the camera, but that's not the case.
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Vegas: I still agree with Christian. You can see enough in the pics to be able to tell that Mangianello is a couple inches taller at least. If the listing for Joe holds true, that’s what the difference would be. Ndamukong Suh had close to 2” on the Rock as well. Probably more like 1.5” in reality since Suh measured that height at the combine in the early morning and may have had slight camera angle in the pic

@Ian 555: I doubt he was ever 6’3 flat at a low let alone over. My guess is he would hit that mark or above only in the morning
Vegas' said on 19/Oct/18
Canson said on 16/Oct/18
@Vegas: if Joe Mangianello is 6’4.75 Rock isn’t 6’2.5. That’s 2.5-3” like Christian said before. Rock is closer to the camera as well
--------------

That photo of the two he posted there isn't 2.5-3 inches between them no. The difference in that particular photo is 2-2.25 inches.

I can't see who is closer and the full length shots such as this don't really tell either Click Here even in that shot with Rock not standing fully straight posing with the women it's not 3 inches difference unless Mangianello has a ~6 inch forehead.

Those photos also look to have been taken from a location above the subjects in question which would further complicate things.

Either way not really good pieces of evidence to reference. A video of the two standing together would be far better to compare height.
juggernaut said on 19/Oct/18
funny how both Rock and his dad are listed 1.93 m on google, Rock in his peak might've been 6'3' or closer to 6'3' but today nothing more than 6'2'. Even Dave Bautista might just edge out The Rock though i wouldn't bet on it.The Rock can sometimes look even a weak 6'2' due to his poor posture,even a 6'1' guy might edge him out in such pics.
Ian555 said on 18/Oct/18
Rob even though you’re not convinced he wasn’t 6’4”, is it possible he was 6’3.5” in his peak? He looked taller by at least an inch than Samuel L. Jackson who is around 6’2.5”

I don't know if it's possible, but The Rock looked at least 189 cm peak (next to Brandon Routh in 2006 or Arnold Vosloo in 2001) maybe even a little bit over 190 cm, but now he looks more like 186-187 cm max. And he is only 46!

You could be right,

I'm assuming, this (as the camera doesn't go down so we can't see their footwear)m but it's probably likely that The Rock is wearing heeled boots (the ones he frequently wears), whereas given Jon Jones's attire, he could possibly be in sandals or even bare footed.

(Disclaimer: I'm a big Dwayne Johnson fan, I just simply don't think he's any taller than 6'2)
Zampo said on 14/Oct/18
@Canson: The Rock of today if measured, I reckon would be in the strong 6'2 category, He may walk around or stand at 6'2 flat or a tad below but I'm quite confident for a measurement he could measure 6'2-6'2.25 range. Think he was taller than 6'2.5 in his prime. Possibly 6'2.75-6'3 range maybe 6'2.5 at a extreme low (which would likely have been very common due to his profession at that point).

@Christian 6'5 3/8: Maybe there is a case for him to be labelled a "liar" because he is no longer an active participant the WWE universe but in no way do I consider a wrestler who claims they're billed height "lying". It's part of "Kayfabe". However, I have made the assumption that his claim is based on on this, if it isn't then I would agree with the term "liar".
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
@Christian: agreed. Rock definitely has never been anything close to 6’4” barefoot. He may have been 190 at his peak but I doubt he was even a flat 6’3” at a low. I’d actually take both of Rob’s listings and knock half inch off both and that’s where he would likely sit today and peak 6’2 and 6’2.5
Canson said on 13/Oct/18
@Zampo: I can agree that a peak Rock may have been “close to 6’3”. By that I mean 6’2.5 to .75 max maybe just 6’2.5. Today he looks 6’2” flat and has for quite some time. He can appear sub 6’2” at times which some people pointed out and I see it with Ndamukong Suh who measured 6’3 7/8 at the combine (more than likely a morning height). Suh likely isn’t over 6’3.5 or anywhere 6’3 3/8-5/8 seeing how all players that have been compared over the years measure anywhere from 1/4-1/2” above their normal walking height at 6 or 7 am when they get measured. Rock looks a good 2” shorter but that may be partly due to camera angle. So I’ll call it roughly 1.5” and say Suh is 6’3.5 and Rock 6’2 flat. I do agree with Danimal and Viper here that he’s never been a legit 6’3” let alone over 6’3”.

The pic with Joe Mangianellio I think shows Dwayne to still a strong 6’2 if we compare using eye level alone as Joe has a lot of hair and Dwayne has none. There are other variables such as footwear ,hydration, posture ,sleep etc. I spent most of the day in bed as I had a tough exhausting week at work and I measured a little over 187 cm in the evening even though my normal low is 186cm
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18
@Ronstsr

No offense, but you've got to be naive if you think that The Rock was ever 6'4". What a wrestler claims doesn't mean squat. Virtually all of them exaggerate height.

@Zampo

Whether his claim habited from his WWE days or not, if he's aware that he's nowhere near 6'4" yet still claims it, he's a liar. He's not even 6'4" out of bed.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18

I'd argue that Hogan's taller than The Rock today. I don't see him anything under 189-190 range, while The Rock's 188 max.
Canson said on 11/Oct/18
@Danimal: Hogan may just be poor posture. 6’2” would surprise me. Maybe closer to 6’3” still but I doubt over 6’3”. I can agree with you on something else tho. You may be right about Taker. Looks 197 range now
Canson said on 11/Oct/18
@Berta: with Barkley’s footwear advantage being accounted for that’s about 6-7 cm. A 194-195 Barkley makes Rock about 188

i think dwayne looks really no taller than 187 if Barkley is 196 and maybe 188-188,5 beside Manganiello. But in reality he probably still is atleast 188
Zampo said on 10/Oct/18
@RONSTER: Whilst I'm not in the category that would paint the Rock as "liar", as I feel his claims a habit from his WWE days. I just don't see him measuring 6'4 barefoot at any point in time, in footwear then yes. I do disagree with those who say he never looked 6'3. He seemed near 6'3 back in the 90s with other wrestlers (particularly in his Nation days with Ron Simmons-listed 6'1 in the USFL probably nearer 6'0, D'lo-6'1.5 celeb height listing). I can definitely buy that he could measure a flat 6'3 then.

Discounting a friend of mine who met him and pegged him there, I also saw the pic of Rock with Ndamukong Suh and Suh looks close to 2” taller. Now Suh was measured at the combine at 6’3 7/8 (morning) so is likely more a weak 6’4 (6’3.5ish). Maybe Suh has a bit of camera advantage and it’s really more like 1.5”ish.

Look at the Youtube link of Jon Jones and Dwayne Johnson. The Rock definitely needs a downgrade, he's likely just 6'2. Maybe a tad less. All of those heavy weights over the years, must take its toll on his spine.

Jon Jones, on the other hand looks to be a solid 6'4
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18
A 6'2" downgrade for The Rock is way overdue at this point. The fact that he looked 2.5"-3" shorter than 6'4.75" Manganiello solidifies it.
Nils2 said on 2/Oct/18
The pics with Joe are not great. The angle is quite bad and it's possible Joe is further away from camera. In some photos he looks only 2 inches taller while in others comfortably 3 inches. Not a great event to draw conclusion from other then the fact that Rock is no where near 6'5! but we already knew that.

Just seen some old wwe picks of the arock and Billy Gunn when he was Mr A$$. There really isn’t much in it bereeen the two. More evidence for a noticeable height loss for the Rock over last 10-15 years. Peak I believe he was a strong 6’3 consistent with poster Mamun assertion. Today yes a strong 6’2.
Rob is it possible for the aRock to lose .75 to 1’ over 15 years?

Sakz said on 26/Sep/18
@Zampo Yep that's absolutely right. Another instance would be when they act 'bad' (or however you want to describe it) in real life. It's basically just them staying in character but as you said the internet and social media has pretty much destroyed all that anyway so it's pointless. 'Kayfabe is dead' as they say in wrestling terms.
Ian555 said on 26/Sep/18
After looking at some evidence, I think the rock in his peak stands a legit 6'4". Nowadays he looks more like he's 6'3.5". I think the 6'1" and 6'2" claims are kinda bull cuz the rock has always struck me as a big dude and he looks the same height as Hasselhoff and looks an inch shorter than 6'5" Strahan. I think the 6'5" claims are a bit over exaggerated though. Maybe during his peak he could have been 6'4.5" at the most but not 6'5".
Zampo said on 24/Sep/18
@Sakz, I don't take most wrestlers height claim seriously, it's like running joke. They all know the height they "really" measure. I actually don't see as lying though, just them playing within they're character. If I was billed 6'3 as a wrestler, I would most definitely claim it in my interviews etc. The whole point of wrestling sports entertainment was to blur the reality between fake and real. My opinion though is that the current era of social media/internet has destroyed all of this so the WWE's height inflation (which was portray wrestlers as super-human athletes) is pretty pointless today.
Sakz said on 20/Sep/18
@Zampo Yeah that's probably what it is and with other superstars aswell. As wrestlers they're bigger and usually taller than the average person anyway, so they probably feel they can get away it. Lots of people simply aren't height aware either so that plays into their favour.
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
@ErikC: he’s definitely lying. It’s well known guys like Charles Barkley are not as tall as they’re listed (6’4 and change) as opposed to a listed 6’6” and he’s stood by him and clearly a lot shorter (2.5”). He’s also stood with Vernon Davis in a pic and Davis is at at best 6’3” in person (his combine was 6’3.25) but he’s likely not more than 6’3” to be honest. So he’s not confused at all. He claims taller like most guys and until they are shown up by someone else the lie will stick. Even then, some guys will go all out and inflate someone else. I love seeing a reaction when we had a tape measure once and were gonna pull it out on a guy who was lying and trying to inflate me and my 6’5 friend. This other guy claimed 6’5” and told us that he’s 6’5 in shoes (I’ll give him credit) but he wasn’t even that. I was in casual shoes that night and was At my normal low that day 6’4.25 since I had gone to the gym as opposed to a mm or two taller so at that stage having measured in those shoes before I was a solid 6’5 and still taller than the guy by about half inch. Then of course my buddy an inch taller 6’5.25 and that’s at night for him as some days he even is 6’5 1/3 at a low (he’s Christian’s size) stood next to him. My buddy never claims the change he just says he’s 6’5. Only to close circle he does. He was in flats (loafers) and edged him by about 3 cm probably. The other guy gave all types of excuses about why shoe height should be claimed and why he deserved to claim it then he even said well you’re wearing flatter shoes and you can’t prove you’re 6’5 in shoes etc. of course when the tape measure was mentioned and my buddy went to get it (which he did), he backed away. He didn’t wanna be embarrassed. Not to mention another guy who was 6’0” stood right in front of both of us and when it was just me he said to me that I was max 6’4” since he didn’t account for a shoe diff. He was in sneaks and I’m in casual shoes but I claim 6’4” so I didn’t argue about it. I did tell the honest guy later tho that I’m a hair over 6’4” (6’4-6’4.5) since I wake up to a full 6’5 but never claim it. I didn’t get into the morning evening thing which I never bring up but I did point out I was in a flatter shoe than him. However, I’m still closer to 6’4” nonetheless and it’s what all of my documents have on them these days (I only claimed 6’4.5 and rounded to 6’5 when I played ball in college) but don’t now

I think The Rock claims 6'4-6'5 simply because this was his billed height during his WWE days thus has stuck with him and more or less has become a habit to state. Back in the day, WWE did their best to blur the lines between reality and "acting". 90% of his interviews was in "The Rock" persona rather than Dwayne Johnson, who was 6'5, 275 pounds. I remember a interview with D'lo Brown (wrestler and friend of the Rock from the nation days) who stated it got to a point where sometimes he couldn't tell if he was speaking to The Rock or Dwayne Johnson.

I'm sure Dwayne Johnson know's he never measured 6'4-6'5 barefoot. I can buy he did during his peak in wrestling boots though, nevertheless could careless what he claims personally. I can never forget summer/autumn 98 and the period till about 2001 in the WWE, absolutely inspirational. On his height today, think he would look quite similar to Tom Welling, maybe 6'2.5 at lunchtime.
Erik C. said on 15/Sep/18
No excuses towards the Rock, however, I think that the reason that the Rock has and continues to claim 6'4'', 6'4.5'', and 6'5'' is that he's either claiming his prime peak height of 6'3.25-ish and either thinking that he deserves another 1.5 inches or so give-or-take. Or, he really was measured at that in his prime years in sneakers and isn't accounting for the fact that his sneakers add some additional height. Either ways, i don't think that the rock accepts, accounts, or even acknowledges the fact of height shrinkage especially after a career like his. He also might just be flat out lying, i dont know. Maybe he's just inflating himself to appear bigger and more impressive like lots of guys do. Not that i think he believes wwe's billings, but, he might've been psyched out and given a false hope by wwe's billings of him.

Either ways, today i give him a solid 6-2 or kinda fair-kinda weakish 6-2.5'', and prime 6-3.25'' based on him next to 6'4'' Hulk Hogan.

They looked very similar, but that was when The Rock was at his peak height. Nowadays Routh would edge him out.
Rydog said on 12/Sep/18
I met Rock in person once. I'm between 6'3" and 6'4" and there was no way he was taller than me. He seemed to be 6'3" or maybe even a little less. He does have a way, though, of seeming larger than life.
Wayne said on 12/Sep/18

The Rock looks a solid 5" shorter than Jeff, and I don't think Jeff's even a legit 6'8" either.

I don't think inflation is usually that bad in Metric countries compared to US, but it's still bad.
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Viper: looking back he may be like your height. Only because I pegged myself 6’4.5 back then so when I’m 6’4.25 really. it’s like 1.5” maybe 1.25 between us. I think “about 6’3” fits him.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 10/Sep/18
There's a pic of The Rock with Aussie Rugby Union players Israel Folau ( 6'4.5 around 225 ) and Will Skelton ( 6'8 320+ ) that refutes anything over 6'3 nowadays for Rocky ( who's tilting his head and standing tall as hard as he can btw )..
Agent Orange said on 10/Sep/18
I think bad posture has a lot to do with the Rocks height in latter years. In my twenties I always felt tall but 20 or so years doing a desk job with little excercise really took a toll on my posture. I decided about 3 years ago to address my poor posture with regular stretching and yoga and I pretty much back to my peak height. The Rock am guessing has very little sleep ‘ clanging n banging at 4 am’, lifts far too much and has ****e posture. I think if he addressed this by self over a period of time then yes he would definitely regain some lost height. Peak 6’3 as I think Mamun is a good reference and today a solid 6’2.

Hahah nice story
There is my 182.3 friend that thinks i'm about the same height as his "198 cm" friend...after finding out that my 178/179 cm listed (after medical measurements) friend is barely 175 cm in reality (same with another 179 cm listed friend, 176.5 in reality), anything is possible now...I thought here in Italy that with metric system, listed and claimed heights were much more accurate but it appears that it's not always (if barely is) the case...
viper said on 7/Sep/18
Canson, I think it's also in the way of your build and If you have long legs.

I'm built pretty evenly with an average inseam.

Vernon Davis I've noticed doesn't get pegged heigher than his height usually. In fact everyone thought he was 6-1-6-2 before he got measured. A scout back in 2006 pegged him up close at just 6-2, and said maybe he just might be 6-3.

@Viper: proportions don’t have much to do with it. These are just people who lie about their own height. Other tall guys claim 6’5 that are your height so to make their lie believable that’s how they do it. Just like you getting guessed 6’4” it’s the same thing. You said you’re 6’2.75 at a low so that’s a shoe height they’re assessing you if they guess you 6’4 or God forbid 6’5”
Canson said on 7/Sep/18
@JamesB: in the pic above and with Ndamukong Suh he is the smallest 6’5 I’ve ever seen. Suh measures 6’3 7/8 early morning so he’s likely not more than 6’3.5 maybe 6’3 3/8 and he has Rock by close to 2” in the pic (1.5-.75 min).
Canson said on 7/Sep/18
@Christian: it largely depends on the shoes I wear and how long I’ve been awake. If I go out at night and am on my feet I can lose an entire inch most of the time (or near it) and come down to 193.4 or so. My extreme low is actually 193.1 one time. But even around 6’4.25 if I’m in flats I get guessed at 6’4 often and 6’5” still. I have met a few people that lie about their height one of which is about my height and swears he measured 6’5 flat which I called him on. I had a pair of boat shoes and so did he and I measured that night and was 193.5 after the long day meaning I am not even 6’5 in shoes and neither was he. Yet he even swore it was barefoot. His poor posture actually made him look shorter than me at times but he stood up straight and we were pretty close. His hair may have influenced the measurement and he likely is 6’4.75 in the early morning just like me or even a hair less. Not to mention he had a 6’7” (6’6.5 admittedly) friend who claimed his exact height and was over 2” taller than both of us. I’ve also seen it where I went to the gym recently and had a guy who walked around commenting on everyone’s height and we all looked at him when he claimed 6’5” to me and I told him gtfoh and that I was only 6’4” myself and clearly at least an inch taller. He swore for about 2 minutes he was until I said well there is a scale over there with a level and he finally walked away from me.

@viper

It's a bit surprising that you usually get guessed at your real height at 6'3" since we live in a society where a lot of people exaggerate height. I rarely get guessed at 6'5" and the lowest I ever got guessed was 6'4" and it only happened twice. Most of the time it's at least 6'6" and sometimes 6'7".

@Duhon: yea Viper is right. The NFL measurements are early morning so Campbell would be 6’8” or a hair over out of bed and 6’7 1/4 maybe 6’7 3/8 at a low. He measured 6’7.75 at the combine. But if we went by morning measurements he’s near 6’8”. I still have Rock a solid 6’2, not 6’1.5 tho

@Myself: I get exactly what you’re saying. Shane’s belief is that it’s your true height. I respect his opinion but I don’t agree with it. It’s like me telling my boss I can only go to work for the first hour I’m awake and then I’m done for the day. My opinion on it is to claim the height you will be seen at in public. So if someone dips to say 6’3.75 then claim 6’4”.
Myself said on 31/Aug/18
Not quite a "liar", more like an "opportunist" i meant*
Also...I could have even tolerated an afternoon claim with shoes, but the fact that it's out of bed...
Anyway, doesn't really matter after all, i just don't want to start a flame war for nothing.
Myself said on 31/Aug/18
@Canson
Yes i totally understand him claiming out of bed barefoot height (188/6'2) to average people, since they would upgrade him anyway. What i don't really approve is being a liar, by claiming a height you measured out of bed with shoes on and probably even rounded up - "because why not"...
I think a decent amount of people that claim considerably more than they are is just because they don't know or don't think too much about the shrinking and shoes/barefoot issues; Shane does...
Myself said on 28/Aug/18
@Canson
I mean that people claim morning height after measuring it because they don't know that they shrink up to 2+ cm so quickly, but Shane actually does. Anyway i wouldn't mind him claiming it (188-6'2) to average people, as they would always try to inflate if he was honest, but the shoe + morning out of bed combo (and add in a round up aswell, because why not...) height is kinda ridicolous...
Canson said on 26/Aug/18
@Shane: I’ve never understood the point in someone saying that they’re “xyz in shoes”. A lot of people do that but never got the point of it really. Btw has anyone ever challenged your 6’2 claim say if you hit an extreme low and walk around at 6’1? Have they ever suggested you’re 6-1?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Aug/18
@Shane

You may as well not claim 6'3" at all then if you're gonna add "in shoes" after the claim. People will just gonna preceive you to be desperate to want to seem taller. I'd rather just claim 6'2" and be done with it if I were you.
Also, Myself is right on point. You may as well claim "I'm 7'1" in 30cm stilts" going by the same logic. I don't see a point in claiming 6'3" if you're gonna add "in shoes". Most people know that shoes give about an inch of height so they'll immediately realize you're 6'2".

@Myself: while I don’t necessarily claim an out of bed height myself, I do respect Shane’s decision to claim it. It’s his perogative and it is a valid measurement by him. But I understand your logic as people will never see you at that height. The thing that complicates a shoe measurement by anyone especially an out of bed one is that shoes vary in thickness so if I claimed 6’6” in shoes out of bed and wore flats or boat like shoes I’m only 6’5” flat at a low In them or even less if it’s 1/2” shoe. At that stage I’d only be 6’4.25 maybe 6’4.3 barefoot so 6’4.75 to .8 in a shoe. That’s why I claim 6’4” because that’s the height I am closest to for probably 75% of the day and even in the first few hours of the am I’m around 6’4.5 after about 3 or so hours so that’s still close enough since I dip below it
Myself said on 25/Aug/18
@Shane
What is the point in claiming out of bed shoe height? I can understand shoe height at afternoon or late morning, but you seriously just wake up, wear shoes go measure yourself, get that figure and claim it? What about the fact that even if we consider that you get out only 30 minutes after waking up, you will already probably be at 189 cm max in shoes? What about the rest 99% of the day?
...Why don't you just wear 4 inch boots and claim that too?
I'll claim my height of probably about 250 cm while standing on a chair while fixing my pull up bar then...Pretty much as realistic.
People most of the time inflate because they have barely any idea on the exact figure and are very ignorant on the subject (my friend was even measured by a specialized computer and on a stadiometer by a doctor to be 178 cm, but i actually measured him 175 cm), but knowing everything and lying on purpose is worse imo.
Take it easy
Canson said on 23/Aug/18
@Shane: I don’t know anyone personally who admits to claiming an out of bed height but I do know people who claim shoes, some of which look nowhere near the shoe claim early in the afternoon. Perhaps a 6’2” guy claiming 6’4 when they’re 6’3 in shoes max
Shane said on 22/Aug/18
@5'11 1/2: Tons of people claim an early morning shoe height. Likely what Rock does and then rounds up. I personally claim my out of bed barefoot height of 6'2" flat but will also say 6'3" in shoes. I never say 6'3" without admitting that is an in shoe height.

I'm still sure that 6'3.25" fits better for peak height, Dwayne Johnson. In many of WWE's old movie materials, Dwayne did not look much shorter than Hulk Hogan, here's an example video from 2002 where you can see Dwayne and Hogan side by side: Click Here
Also in the old episodes of the program that Jay Leno ran when The Rock appeared there several times in the years 1997-2001, you can see that Johnson looked more than 4 inches taller than Leno. Here is their example photo side by side from 2001: Click Here
In movie "Doom" from 2005, Dwayne Johnson looked at least two and a half inches taller than Karl Urban, sometimes he could look close to three inches taller than him, and Karl could still be 6'0.75". Here's a picture of Karl and Dwayne side by side from 2005: Click Here
