He claims 190cm,but looks 187 Click Here
Yuval said on 10/Jun/19
He keeps claiming 6'3 everywhere. In a recent video with Brian Shaw he mentioned how 6'3 is such a good height for deadlift. Maybey he is 6'2.5 mornong and he just rounds up. But for sure he is the same height as Larry Wheels 6'1 and change

Rob how tall do you think the true Geordie is? He towered over Eddie Hall in pictures he’s taken with him, don’t quote me on this but I recall that he has claimed 6 ft 3 and 6 ft 4 in his Q&As and in the picture I had seen TG with Eddie Hall he looked at least 6 ft 3, his poor posture is the reason why people think he’s smaller than he is, and apparently TH weighs 25 stones must have real strain on him if he’s that big
Geordie could be nearer 6ft 3 than Eddie is.
said on 23/May/19
He was regulary listed 188cm in his early UK competitions Click Here Click Here
Myself said on 19/Apr/19
Yeah they are both clearly overlisted on this site; I have then at 184/185 (Eddie) and 199.5/200.5 (Brian).

Met him today in Hackney, London, he was hosting a one vs one strength test between Nick Best and Brian Shaw. Cameras and everything. Assuming it’ll be for a YouTube skit. My height fluctuates between 186-187cm flat. I Stood next to Eddie and the other Guys for a long period of time since there weren’t many in the crowd. This took place outside a pub. I even managed to shake hands and speak to Eddie and asked him a question. But height wise he was nearly the same height as me. Tad bit shorter. I would peg him around 185cm. Nick Best was the same height as him but at times looked very slightly shorter, he’s also at around 184-185cm. Brian Shaw was actually really, really tall but even my friend guessed he wasn’t exactly 6’9. He could be around 6’7 or even 6’6 (lowest I’d say)
BTW....they were all freaking huge and was amazing to actually see them all in living colour at my local pub in Hackney!
Eddie Hall - 185cm
Nick Best - 184cm
Brian Shaw - 200.5cm

Rob, should we tell you when a page has the picture missing? Or you are aware of everything? Because for example Eddie lacks one right now.
It's more errors, as slowly I go through pages adding bits, with wikimedia/instagram you can embed photos from there (if I don't have one from the site I use).

I am 6.05 to 6'1 on training days (evnin height) but on rest days with propa sleep I am bout 6'2.
said on 21/Mar/19
6'2.5 Brendan with Eddie. Click Here
Similar footwear, Eddie holds up better than Wrestler Sting did. Looks 6'2 here.
Jimhopper said on 20/Mar/19
6-1 max. He uses insoles now I’m told in his footwear after social media exposing his b/s 6-3 claim.
Myself said on 10/Mar/19
A real 6'1.5 person would look 6'2 sometimes, he NEVER does. I think if measured properly at a low he's 184 or 185 on the nose.
I feel like Josh could make him look as short as a weak 6 footer!
Randomdude0000 said on 10/Mar/19
yeah personally I can't see Eddie being anything over 6'1 evening height, I think 6'1 1/2 is too generous

Eddie with Larry Wheels (who claims to be 6'1", but could be shorter) from today. They are virtually the exact same height throughout the video. If anything, Larry edges Eddie out by a bit. Eddie is MAX 6'1": Click Here
Yuval said on 6/Mar/19
He had a video with Larry Wheels and they looked the same,6'1. And I belive Larry is 6'1 because I have been following him for some time.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Mar/19
I doubt Henry's 6'1" though. 6'1.5" is more realistic.
said on 4/Mar/19
With 6'1 Larry Wheels
sss said on 1/Mar/19
I don't think he's even 6ft,with such a big frame he would looker bigger than he does if he was 6'1-6'3 range but he doesn't look very tall at all guessing 5'10 5'11 tops

Eddie looking shorter than 6'1" Mark Henry (from today): Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/19
Can look barely 185cm at times but I think can stretch himself to 186-187cm zone. If he at least brought his claim down to 6ft2
said on 21/Feb/19
Rob, Eddie doesn't look above 6'0.5 (does he? 6'1 max anyway) here Click Here
and that's considering Brian is 6'7.5, which I doubt he is.
I doubt he's less than 6ft 1...but a flat 6ft 1 has always been possible.
Myself said on 21/Feb/19
I think it's close to 1.5 inches, considering also that Eddie has better posture, both head and torso.
said on 5/Feb/19
@Yuval they clearly do not look the same
I would like a second opinion can people tell me how much height difference there is in this picture between Eddie and Henry looks like an inch to me maybe 3/4's possibly half an inch at the least - Click Here
Yuval said on 5/Feb/19
Well they look the same. Who knows what their footwear was and posture at that picture.
Myself said on 4/Feb/19
I'm not sure he is over 6'1 anymore, I think he might have shrunk. Looks 6'0.5/6'1 to me now, but I could be wrong.
Randomdude9099 said on 4/Feb/19
@yuval looks ATLEAST an inch half, you could argue it's even more than an inch
Yuval said on 3/Feb/19
I'm not sure he is an inch shorter then Mark Henry..they look close
Peter Simmons said on 17/Jan/19
I stood next to him at an event last year. No way is he 6' 3". More like 6' 1".
Randomdude9099 said on 4/Jan/19
@Yuval then why is he clearly an inch(atleast) shorter than 6'2 Henry?
he does look close to Bill Kazmaier who is about 6'2 but also remember Bill is also approaching 70 years old so I doubt he is still 6'2(that was his peak height)
I just don't see it all the evidence I'm looking at suggest he is 6'0 1/2 to 6'1
Yuval said on 3/Jan/19
He has a lot of haters..but for sure he is not under 6'1. I think this listing is perfect, 1.5 inch shorter then Big Z.
Yuval said on 3/Jan/19
6'1 seems low for him..he looks close to Bill Kazmaier and Colin Bryce both I believe 6'2.
Randomdude9099 said on 2/Jan/19
I really feel Eddie needs a downgrade to 6'1 max,there was a picture with Hall and Mark Henry with Henry looking atleast an inch taller and having a hair disadvantage
I still believe Eddie is 6'0 1/2 or 6'1 max
Halb said on 31/Dec/18
Met him at Euston. I'd guess at between 6"-6'1"
Timson said on 28/Dec/18
6-1. He blocks people on Instagram if they call out his real height. 2” shorter than big Z.
said on 22/Dec/18
Here is a picture with Hafthor..looks like 6 inches below.
berta said on 14/Dec/18
He is 4,5 cm shorter than Zydrunas and he is very legit 6 foot 3 guy ( fraction over) Rob and site user " Myself" have seen my photo with him and can also tell you that he is not under 6 foot 3. Zydrunas is 191 and this guy is 186,5 Listing is very good
Yuva said on 9/Dec/18
He lost some weight lately..maybe he gained height in the procces?
Timson said on 8/Dec/18
Got his autograph at the U.K. strongest man event few years ago. Really cool guy. But he’s not 6-3 seriously I’d say not over 6-1. I’m 6-0 and I had converse trainers on. We looked so close height wise I have a photo of the meeting. I think Ed should stop claiming this height imo.
Ronnie Richardson said on 31/Oct/18
Im 5'9 (maybe 5'9 1/2), well 176cm to be exact, and when i met Eddie he did look shorter than 6'3
Randomdude991 said on 23/Oct/18
@Lambo I've been saying it for a long time I don't even think Eddie is over 6'1,although he is huge both in terms of height(yes 6'1 is quite tall) and MAINLY size(muscle mass) I just can't seem him been over 6'1 he looks 2 inches shorter than 6'3 big z,6'1 is the absolute max I can see him at
Myself said on 20/Oct/18
Rob, do you think Eddie could have shrunk after everything he has done? I suspect he has...
said on 14/Sep/18
Conclusive proof that Eddie is not the 6'3" he claims. Here he is with presenter George Lamb who is at least 6'4" making Eddie around 6'0" in this picture. Click Here
And before anyone mentions footwear, here is a full length shot showing similar footwear:
said on 13/Jul/18
Are you over or close to middle age? Did you have herniated discs or something?
About Eddie, i think he is nowhere near at 6'3 at his low. Check out him with legit 6'2.75/6'3.25 Zydrunas Savickas:

Ben Bell said on 11/Jul/18
Just wear and tear.
All good now. Can do everything again after surgery, I’m just slightly shorter.
Myself said on 27/Jun/18
Dam...i'm sorry for that...how old are you and what did specifically happen?
Randomdude12 said on 14/Jun/18
but to be honest I just can't see it with 6'3 big z
I'd still think he is 6'1 but then again as you said if I ever got a picture with him my opinion may change
Ben Bell (The Ben) said on 11/Jun/18
I am 6'0.5 100%.
I was 6'1.025, I had spinal issues and shrunk down to 6'0 due to generative disc disease. I then had spinal fusion surgery and have gained a little.
It's funny when I put photos on here years ago with Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and the Ultimate Warrior I had people saying I was taller than I was.
I have a photo of my 6'3 friend next to Eddie Hall, both with good posture and they are identical in height.
Eddie is touring the UK currently, I'd suggest people go and get a photo with him. He's a very large man.
Taking footwear in to Account I could go down to 6'2.5 but no less.
Randomdude7 said on 9/Jun/18
@Ben Bell then I doubt you are 6'0.5
I still think 6'1 he quite shorter than 6'3 big Z
Ben Bell said on 7/Jun/18
Just met him today and I’d say 6’3.
I had a photo with him and I’m 6’0.5 and he had 2” on me at least.
Also had a photo with my 6’3 friend and they were exactly the same height.
Definitely looks shorter due to his massive width, I wasn’t expecting him to be 6’3 at all. Even stood a few meters from him he looked shorter. It was only in the photos or when standing directly next to him you could see his height.
Flexbert said on 30/May/18
He looks 6'1 to me.
Yuval said on 13/May/18
Being a giant means more range of motion. Not every 6'6-6'9 guy will manage to be the best.For example Terry Hollands 6'6 never won wsm. I wonder if Shaq could have been world strongest man if he filled his frame with like 500 pound of muscles at 7 foot tall. He makes thor look short lol.He did bench 405 so he has strength..maybe in the future some 7 foot guy will diminate. It is hard to fill that frame..Brian and thor consume 10k calories a day and they eat all day when they are not training
said on 11/May/18
I think there is a chanse of Zydrunas being more 190 than 191, since that is also the height he personally claimed here at 2:15 Click Here
and listed here at 1:54 Click Here
(in this same video Mariusz is listed 1.8, and he was listed 183 somewhere else too, so i doubt he is over 183 by any chanse; check this out Click Here
It could be an old measurement that he (Big Z) has been claiming for a while (just like me) since his teens and he actually grew a little after that, or he could be really 6'2.75 to 6'3 flat too.
Nevertheless still a good height for that sport, although i think in the future more and more men closer to 7 foot will begin appearing, since their maximum muscular potential is considerably higher...but i'm not an expert in this subject.
Still quite suprising how Eddie and Zydrunas manage to hold their own against pretty much giants like Shaw and Julius.
Yuval said on 10/May/18
And Big Z is like 42 years old..heavey(heaviest I should say?) lifting for 26 years..didnt lose that much height if any at all. Bill Kazmier too, heavy lifting no height loss. So lifting doesnt makes you shorter..no more then aging for sure. Arnold probably had issues and lost less then what is listed(never was 6'2)
berta said on 7/May/18
by the way everybody should check out world strongest man 2018 and you see that big z is little over 6 foot 3 he isnt that mutch shorter than hafthor and the other big guy
Yuval said on 6/May/18
Zydrunas is 191 cm for sure. How about Mariusz Pudzianowski? listed 6'1 but with Zydrunas he looks 6 foot. Also with Derek Poundstone(listed 6'1) he looks an inch shorter.
Berta said on 5/May/18
Rob keep a eye on big z because im 90 procent shore he is little over that. His shoes had atleast 1 inch but still he was taller in person than in photos. I still stand by my big z 191- 191.5 estimate and peter stormare max 187 and could be 186 today. There is way over 1 inch beetween them two
Depressed Schizophrenic said on 3/May/18
Want a real 6'3'' powerlifter try Zydrunas Savickas who easily edges this guy by a solid 4-5 cm ..
said on 2/May/18
Rob i would like to know that you would have listed big z on this site. IT sees from your comment that you thingk 190 cm? I can send you my picture with Himif you Walnt ? And measure myself to prove my height. Om stand-in 2 inches begrunda himla so not the best picture bu tits 100 procent prolog that he is 190,5-191,5 range. I thingk i had him with 6 cm and my 190'5 brothers looken 1 cm shortsen but big z had the best LO-styrelsen i ever scene so could measure shortsen than he looked do you Walnt to add him rob?
6ft 3 on the nose is always possible for him.
berta said on 28/Apr/18
keep in mind thoose guys always lift extreme weights and is half inch shorter in every photo than if they would have a resting day. i saw zavickas on a day where he didnt lift, he was just standing all day and taking photos and talking with fans. i can promise 100 procent that the shortest possible he ever is 190,5 biggest chanse is fraction over 191. i think this guy could be the same he looks 187 in most photos but if we would meet him on a rest day he could look 188. its just my opinion. i mean i have meet magnus samuelsson who says he is 2 meter and they always sad 6 foot 7 on world strongest man. But i edged him out at weak 197. so when i was going to meet zavickas and read 191 as his height i thought " this guy is probably no taller than 189" only guy that really was atleast his claimed height if not fraction more. Also i can believe magnus samuelsson have lost height after all thoose years of lifting. i could see when he walked that his back looked like he had som injury to it.
berta said on 28/Apr/18
all i can tell you guys is that i have meet Zavickas 6 month ago ore something like that and he is the only guy that was taller than i thought. most celebs i have seen ore meet have been 2-3 cm shorter than they look. for example peter storamre looks 188-189 in movies but beside a carpenter who i have meet he doesnt look over 185. could actually look 184 ( but he can have lost a little height since peak) Zavickas is legit 6 foot 3 i promise you guys because my borter is 190,5 cm to be exact and i saw that zavickas edged him out in the photo tegether and ovarall when they stood beside eath other. i Can tell you that there is 2 inches beetween peter stormare and zavickas and there is no way he is under 191 cm. my guess is 191-191,5 with extremelly good posture that make him look 192.
Yuval said on 17/Apr/18
Big z is 3 cm taller then Hall..
said on 14/Apr/18
ROB would you estimate Zavickas height to be legit 6'3?
Closer to 6ft 3 than Eddie Hall ever was!
depressed schizophrenic said on 14/Apr/18
Just lol @ 6'3
Yuval said on 13/Apr/18
Colin Bryce is listed 188 cm.There are a lot of photos and interviews of them together, Eddie is at most tall as him and can look 1-2 cm shorter.
berta said on 9/Apr/18
i think the listing is good. he is around 4,5-5 cm shorter than Zydrunas Zavickas who i meet. and he is a very very legit 6 foot 3 guy i would say around 191-191,5
Yas said on 26/Feb/18
That 1100lbs deadlift robbed him of 2 inches lol.
Josh Jeffords said on 10/Feb/18
6 1 .5 if he stands up straight more 6 1 most times benchers and super heavy power lifters have awful posture.
He is nowhere near his claim 6 3 guy mildly tower him even bird chesting.
Great lifter, amazing presser and he may have won wsm even without controversy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/18
I suppose he could stretch up to near 187cm
Joah said on 4/Feb/18
Pretty much how i see him 6 1 maybe .5 very heavy.
Well under 6 3s and some 6 2 ers even old guys.
Did have an amazing couple years could get away any claim right now.
star69 said on 25/Jan/18
just because said on 20/Jan/18
weighing 30 stone and deadlifting 80 stone must have a negative effect on the spine i would guess hes 6ft2
Yuval said on 19/Jan/18
So he is not so tall for a strongman..intresting though he do not look 4 inches shorter them Robert obsert who is 6'6
said on 19/Jan/18
Typical testosterone junky behaviour to inflate height.
Wouldn't be surprised if he was as low as 6ft1 flat (not under though)
186 might be the lowest I'd try to argue for him.
A Man said on 7/Jan/18
Yeah I'd go a flat 6,1" for Eddie, nothing above that.
6,2.75" for Big Z
6,7.25" for Shaw
6,7.75 for Thor
6,5" Terry Hollands

Here is 6'2" David Horne with Eddie. David is clearly taller than Eddie:
Eddie used to get 6'1.5" and 6'2" listings in his early strongman days: 2011-2013. He's since claiming 6'3", even though 6'2" guys are legitimately taller than him.
Alex 6'3 said on 5/Jan/18
186 flat at best.
RandomDude said on 4/Jan/18
needs a downgrade 6'1 no more looks about 2 inches shorter than legit 6'3 big Z
bazza said on 4/Jan/18
i was thinking his height seemed pretty inflated when watching WSM, current listing looks more realistic seems a weak 6'2 at best. Perhaps the 6'3 claim is with his chunky trainers on but no way he is barefoot.
Jacob said on 1/Jan/18
Considering he’s below average height for strong man is crazy definitely would seem nice talking to him on the street
jabuso said on 29/Dec/17
I am 5 '10.5 and i took a pic with him we are about the same height, i say eddie is 5 '10.75
said on 26/Dec/17
In the same video you linked here Rob, Joshua looks shorter or at least same height while sitting, compared to Eddie. Does he have a long inseam? Or maybe it's just that since his legs are longer, the posture he is forced to sit in makes his hip bone to rotate in a way so that his lower back is less straight and more curved.
I read that black people tend to have longer inseam (% of height) compared to asians, and europeans are in the middle of the two.
Editor Rob: remember also if you have a big behind, that can effect sitting height, but I think Anthony does have quite long legs in person.
said on 22/Dec/17
Rob, how tall would you say the youtuber the true geordie is next Eddie Hall? He has claimed 6 ft 4 and 3 on twitter and I buy it
Editor Rob: the True Geordie can look a good inch taller than Eddie.
Jim Hopper said on 20/Dec/17
I saw Eddie in Manchester and I was just about taller than him which was a surprise I am just under 6-2". I think hes around 6-1" mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Dec/17
6ft3 looks extreme barefoot but anywhere 6ft1-2 is arguable...
said on 9/Dec/17
@Rob do you think he might be 6'2 or 6'2.25?
well his 6ft 3 claim is suspect, I mean with Anthony Joshua
he looks well under 6ft 2...you might argue at times Eddie doesn't look much over 6ft 1.
Look at the start of the clip With Anthony and Eddie
...looks a good 4 inches
