Video quality isn't the greatest but here is a 48 year old Duggan looking every bit as tall as a 34 year old Goldberg Click Here Its doubtful that Goldberg had lost any height in his mid 30's, while I'd guess that by late 40's Duggan had probably lost at least a fraction

@62B - I would put him exactly at Rob’s estimate

Sounds about right. He was 6'2" to maybe6'2.5" back in 1988. I was right behind him in line at the airport

Probably a decent 6ft1 today if measured and have scraped the 6ft2½ mark in his hey day

I think you've got this on the money, Rob. He was definitely at least 6'2" prime and looks about 6'1" with you. Tallest I would give him is 6'2.5" prime and 6'1.5" now. He did start to wear Kane style boots in WCW and could look 6'3" or more. I do remember him from the start of WM 7, and he looked about 2" shorter than 6'4" Gorilla Monsoon.
Editor Rob
You could argue 6ft 2 and change was possible at times...he definitely lost an inch at least by today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/17
No way under 6ft2 peak and a bit over that is very possible. Looked a tiny bit shorter than Ted DiBiase (minimum 6ft3)

...saw him today at a show. I'm 6', 6'1.5 with sneakers shoes I wear. We were about even.
World Citizen said on 11/Jun/17
Looks 6 ft flat here

LOL Andre 7'3 and himself 6'3... i dont know which one whos most ridiculous, either way he gave both Andre and himself some 3 extra inches. Never looked taller than perhaps a strong 6ft in his peak, and today seems to be 5'11 1/2


Peak 6'2"-6'2.5" is perfect. I was right behind Duggan in line at an airport in Louisiana back in the late 80's. I was a fraction over 6'3" bare foot at the time. I was in tennis shoes and I believe Duggan was wearing hiking boots and we seemed the same height. Put us both barefoot and I probably would have had him by an inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Feb/17
Rob, how likely is 182cm?
Editor Rob: I'd never guess him under six foot today, he still seems over it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
Those hands are monstrous!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
189cm peak is debatable. Same for Beefcake...

Rob at 5:37min he stands beside Sid and does not look any shorter than Lex Luger.

6ft2.5in peak possible?
Editor Rob: Redneck, it is arguable he could have fallen into strong 6ft 2 range.
Csimpson 6ft said on 4/Jan/17
Rob do you think big Hacksaw might be 6ft 0.75 today? He probably would look it with better posture, near enough 6ft 1 anyway and is 6ft 1.75 peak possible?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't guess him over 6ft 1 today, nor much under 6ft 1 at all.
phil said on 29/Nov/16
he is bending is knee there, he could still be a full 6"1
Editor Rob: he is a bit, but he's also lifting his heels up in this photoshoot.
Sam said on 27/Nov/16
He must have looked taller in person. In the photo he could pass for 6'0 more than 6'1 but I guess he had his knees bent. Peak he looked taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/16
185/186cm today. Same goes for DiBiase and Beefcake
Peter 179cm said on 30/Oct/16
He looks nearer 182-183 range but he doesn't have the best posture.Near 185 is possible but more like 6'0.75 rather than 6'1.
Jim Hopper said on 23/Oct/16
Billed at 6-4"....................More wwe bullcrap.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
Rob, maybe a bit over 6ft2 in his 20's?

Could pass for 6ft3.
Editor Rob: you could make a case for a strong 6ft 2 range yes.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 27/Jul/16
Rob, he stands a bit weird in this pic, bent knees? upperbody. did he look taller in person?
Editor Rob: in this shoot he was going forward onto his toes and raising up a bit his heel, although it didn't really change much, I think he is over six foot nearer dibiase 6ft 1, it's funny these 4 guys: Brutus, DiBiase, Road Warrior and Duggan all not much different in person.
62B said on 25/Jul/16
I stood behind Duggan at the Alexandria Louisiana airport in 1988. I was 6'3" and felt Duggan and I were the same height. He may have had a footwear advantage, but I don't know that for fact. Peak 6'2 1/2" to 6'3" Is my guess. Today I do not know. I saw DiBiase at the YMCA a year or so later. I felt he edged me out a tad at the time. Both are around 60 Today and most likely have lost more height than I have due to their age and decades of wrestling. I have already lost about 1/2". He must have been keeping kfab when talking about Andre being 7'3", because he also said Andre was a little shorter than Khali. Also, Andre knocked me on my butt when I bumped into him in 1988. My first impression of him when I stood up and he stood up straight was that he was maybe a tick over 7', but later I saw a 7'2" guy and figured Andre was really about 6'11".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/16
I'd say he's got an edge over DiBiase and Brutus
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 16/Jul/16
Wow he has BIG Hands, nice pic

6´1" today ?
Editor Rob: dibiase, Hacksaw, Brutus all look close in person I believe, near 6ft 1, all lost height, how much though?
