In survivor series 91 there is maybe only little over 3 inch between hogan and UT.(6'5 and 6'8 1/2) but if you watch backlash 2002, there is a good 5 inch between them(6'3 1/2 and 6'8 1/2). UT towers over hogan there.
but i cant see hogan wearing that big hights in his boots in any of those matches like he did when he faced rock(sadly for wwe, they simple recognize that the rock was taller than hogan and gave hogan alot of hights in they're matches. "immortal" hulk hogan CANNOT look to be shorter than rock, wwe wouldnt accept that). In fact... Hogan had only 1-1/2 inch to brock lesnar. Rock had 2 inch on lesnar... Hogan had only 1 inch to goldberg back in 1997/98. Rock had atleast 1 1/2 inch on goldberg. Comparing to other opponents rock looks to be taller. there's only in hogans matches with the rock he seems to be at the same height, or little taller. (due to his heights)

In those recent photos with his family and on his show, Hogan is looking rather short. For some it may bring a tear to the eye when they see his daughter not looking much shorter next to him. I gotta say, it must be a big let down for many of the little hulksters out there who grew up and faced reality. He's still cool though, brother. By the way, like many other wrestlers, UT had his height grossly exaggerated over the years. They used to refer to him as 7 ft. several times and of course the common 6'10. If I gave UT 6'7 peak actual height that would be a bit generous. Big Skinny Nash is taller, with 6'9 seeming logical.
Ola said on 28/Aug/06
Halb...,You KNOW that Nash is legi 6'9? how?...(i have heard he was legit 6'10) that would put Undertaker to 6'8. UT is(was) 6'9 according to himself. he could be 6'8 1/2 today
Halb said on 27/Aug/06
I know BBM trimemd down alot, but ring announcers also know diddly. I can't remember where I read/heard it, but they basically go off approximations. i remember a match once with Hulk, and G Monsoon said he had trimemd down to 270 (was mabbe the Earthquake match?) yet the ring announcer still rang out the old, '302 lb' routine.
I am amazed at that ted DiBiase height, but meetings are the best way to determine height I think.

I'll look for that Hogan tag match. As for Sid, I have him at 6 ft 6 in, cas I don't think he was 6 ft 8 in. I was mates with Bulldog and he told me how big Sid was. Kev Nash is a legit 6 ft 9 in and he has a couple inches on Sid and Undie.
Ola said on 27/Aug/06
i was send a great pic(great angle) of hogan to the admin. he was stand face to face with rock, and you can easly see that hogan wears 2 inch hights in his boots... still, rock is taller.

If would be greate if the pic could be posted here
Danimal said on 27/Aug/06
Halb, Bossman wasn't always listed at 357. Read what I wrote. As time went by, the annoucers WERE calling him out at a lighter weight starting in 1990, until he left the WWF. That was done because his whole gimmick (other than being a correctional officer) was his SIZE. When he was trimming down, they couldn't ignore that. Maybe he didn't want them to either and that's why they didn't. Same with Undertaker, who's weight loss was noticeable and hence the 328 pounds became 305 and same with Hogan's 303 down to 275 when he came back to the WWE in 2002.

Ola, met Dibiase in CT with my friend in a restaurant. My friend is 6'3" and weighs 220. Dibiase was at the table next to us. When he went to pay the check, my friend did as well. Ted looked taller and was definitely wider (at least 250-260 pounds).

Halb, go to Youtube and type in Big John Studd, or King Kong Bundy. What you'll get is a tag team match between Hogan and Andre vs. Studd and Bundy from 1985. There are better matches between Studd and Hogan from 1984-1985, but this one you can still see that Studd was barely taller than Hogan. Even Undertaker and Psycho Sid (who were both close to 6'8") were barely taller than Hogan in 1991 and Hogan already lost over an inch in height by that time.
Halb said on 27/Aug/06
I have been trying to find some of my old wrestling tapes. It should be quite easy, has anyone got a pic of Hogan next to Big John Studd? Studd was 6 ft 7 in tall. And so at that height if Hogan really was 6 ft 6 in, then the difference should be barely noticable? Anyone got a good pic?
Steve said on 27/Aug/06
hogan today may be between 6ft 3 - 6ft 4.

In his prime, i believe he was at legitimate 6ft 6. still a fairly tall guy, but not 6ft 8 for sure.
Chief said on 27/Aug/06
I'll bet just about any celebrity would at the very least try to squeeze an extra inch (usually more) when questioned about their actual height. For Hogan, he's probably about 6 ft 3 at present. In old 80's wrestling footage he tends to look taller at times compared to recent footage, but then again it varies depending on the size of the opposing wrestler in comparison. As for 6'7 peak, NOPE! Maybe Hogan can be billed at 6'8 again if he wrestles Mysterio in the next W-Mania. Of course, Mysterio will have to be stated as at least 6 ft. lol
Halb said on 26/Aug/06
If BossMan said he was 380 fine, ring announcers don't really care aboot weight that's why Bossman was always hailed as 357 even tho his weight fluctuated. Tho when he dropped down to 270 his 'ring weight' was hailed at around 310.
U can correct me with all the incorrect info you want, Bundy looked to be the same height as Reed, and shorter than Rude, he's not 6 ft 4 in.:oD
Hogan didn't look 4 inches shorter than Andre at WM3 at his 'supposed' 6 ft 6 in height. I can guess that he rounded up to 6 ft 5 when he was younger, but was prolly more like 6 ft 4 barefoot. I had a mate who met him at poolside once, he said he was not as big as he thought he would be and aboot my height but not more.
Viper652 said on 26/Aug/06
I never said Hasselhoff was 6-3. In fact he can look taller than his listed 6-4 at times. Just merely stating that Duncan looks an inch shorter.
Ola said on 25/Aug/06
Danimal ok pal! but i dont think he was more than 6'5 in his prime late 80/early 90. DiBiase is max 6'2 today. he only had a inch to IRS, who is 6'1
Danimal said on 25/Aug/06
Viper, guaranteed if you had Hogan stand next to Ted Dibiase today, that they would sadly be the same height. Ted claims he was 6'4". I believe he was at least 6'3" (he was tall) and YES, Hogan had him by at least 3" in 1979. In the NWO (1996-1999), Hogan had him by about 1.5" and as I said, if anything Hogan would have him by MAX .5" today. Sad But True.
Danimal said on 25/Aug/06
Alex, Bundy was 512 pounds in 1981-1983 (before enterering the WWF in '84). In the WWF his weight varies from 440-480 pounds.
Danimal said on 25/Aug/06
Ola, get informed!!! Hogan isn't being listed at 6'6" today. He WAS 6'6" PRE-1990. He has undergone multiple surgeries over the years and is now under 6'4".

Viper, since when is Hasselhoff 6'3"? He's always been 6'4". He's the exact same height as Conan O'brien.
Viper652 said on 25/Aug/06
Duncan looks no taller than 6-3 with Hasselhoff.
Ola said on 25/Aug/06
How in the heck can hogan be listed as 6'6?
we can all agree that rock, mc duncan, and hogan are about in the same height ok? max 1 inch between them all. then watch this; Click Here

then take in mind that there wasnt one damn scene with hasselhoff and hogan near to each other in the baywatch episode... for a good reason ;)
Alex said on 24/Aug/06
Danimal, I saw Bundy in person at this charity event 6 years ago. He was def around the 450lb mark and looked at least 6'4.
Alex said on 24/Aug/06
Bossman was at least 6'4, possibly 6'5. His weight was he really 277lbs in 1993? I know he lost weight but he lost that much by then. I know during his last run in WWF he was def at his leanest.
Viper652 said on 24/Aug/06
I just watched an old match of Hogan versus Ted Dibiase from 1979 on TV. It was Hogans first appearance at Madison Square Garden. Hogan looked about 3 inches taller than Dibiase.
Danimal said on 24/Aug/06
Jordan, he was 380 in 1987-1988. By 1989-1990 he was 357. 1991 he was 337, 1992 he was 317, 1993 he was 277. Listen to the annoncer before his matches. They weren't hiding or masking the fact that he was getting thinner. It was very noticeable.
Jordan said on 24/Aug/06
Well Ithought the boosman was always intoduced at 357, but if bossman said he was 380 then I believe it.
Danimal said on 23/Aug/06
No, Halb, he was 6'5" in High School, not College and NO, he hadn't lost 3" in 1990. According to him, he lost 1.25" at that point. He later lost another 1" at some point in the mid to late 90's and then yet another inch in 2000-2004. I believe that it happenend in 3 cycles.

Finally, Bundy WAS indeed about 6'4". Minimum 6'3". He was over 440 pounds and tall. Big John Studd had only about 3-4" on him.

Finally, I hate to keep correcting you Halb, but Bossman weighed 380 according to him in 1987. By the early 90's (not late), he was down to 277 pounds according to him he lost over 100 pounds and it showed. He was actually quite muscular and in great shape by the end of his life. He was 6'4" and Hogan had him by a couple of inches in interviews and in their matches.
Halb said on 23/Aug/06
I agree Bossman was prolly 6 ft 4 in. He weighed 350ish when he joined WWF and dropped 70 lbs of flab down to 270 in late 90ish.
Halb said on 23/Aug/06
I can see that Hogan was 6'5 mabbe in his prime, that's what he was in college, but anything more than that is wrestling add on. When Orton and Hogan had their first chat, Orton looked much taller to me, mabbe Hogan has lost an inch-inch half, I doubt more than that, I still go with the statement from below. Had Hogan lost 3inches when he faced Warrior in 90 danimal? Cas there isn't much height diff betwen him and the 6'2 Warriot there.:oD At WMIII there was more than 4 inches diff between Andre and Hogan, and King Kong Bundy was not 6 ft 4, look at the survivor series cover, he was same height as Butch Reed.
Jordan said on 18/Aug/06
Bossman is prolly 6'4 -6'5. He was billed at 6'6 and 6'7 but 6'4 sounds more like the real truth
Danimal said on 18/Aug/06
JT, when Bossman entered the WWF, he was a legit 380 pounds. He lost 100 pounds throughtout the years. He was never listed at 6'9". He was listed at 6'7" and then 6'6". He was a legit 6'4" guy and Hogan had him by 2" in all their matches and interviews prior to 1990.
Danimal said on 18/Aug/06
Care to take it outside Viper?
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
Boss man looked 6-4 to me.
JT said on 18/Aug/06
Ed, Boss Man looked around 6'5" to me. IIRC, WWF billed him at 6'9" when he made his first appearance. He was very fat too. I think they first billed him at around 390 lbs.
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
Yeah, Id say Im right more often than you Danimal.
ed said on 18/Aug/06
Does anybody know how tall the boss man was? Cause Hulk was more than an inch taller. Could have been lifts but i doubt it. The summerslam match with John tenta in the end when boss man and hulk stand side by side in the ring, he has atleast an inch and a half on the boss man.
Danimal said on 17/Aug/06
Viper, you like to be right, don't you? In fact, are you ever really wrong?
Viper652 said on 17/Aug/06
If Hogan has a half inch on Randy Orton, that would pretty much make Orton 6-3 flat as Ive been saying all along.
Danimal said on 17/Aug/06
What's also obvious is that when Hogan wears jeans, you can clearly see how small his legs and hips are today. That hip surgery made him look tiny and short in the legs. That and his fused neck must have been the 2 things that brought him below 6'4" from his 6'5" WCW days. It's even obvious from 2000 to 2002. I wonder how much height one can lose from new hips?
Danimal said on 17/Aug/06
If Hogan isn't 6'4" nowadays, he's damn close to it. I still say he's 6'3.25-6'3.5". Wouldn't you love to see Hogan time warp to 1989 and have him stand next to Stone Cold, HHH, The Rock, Batista, Edge, Lesnar, Orton, etc, and put them all to shame. He would tower over all of them. I bet he would even be taller than Test.
Richard said on 15/Aug/06
I think the difference was exactly the same as when they met the first time in the ring. (When Hogan was with Brook)
Hogan looked half an inch taller than Orton.
My personal view is that if both men were barefeet Hogan would be the taller of the two. To me Hogan looks very close to 6'4, just look at the photos of him and Lou Ferrigno. Also in his Show (Hogan knows best) he always wears sandals which have no heel. All people around him wear regular shoes so naturally that will make them look taller. Brook often wears high heels.
Alex said on 15/Aug/06
Hogan may have been in lifts or bigger boots. Barefoot I think Orton would be a bit taller.
ed said on 15/Aug/06
You guys happen to see Raw last night!! When Hulk faced Orton and stood up really straight, he was about 0.5" taller as Randy. So he could still be 6'4".
Alex said on 12/Aug/06
Most NBA heights are boosted 1-1.5 inches up.
Larry said on 11/Aug/06
The orthopedic surgeon who worked on me works on the San Antonio Spurs. He's a knee & hip joint guy. He said the NBA heights are IN SHOE heights. So, "fudged" by 1 to 2 inches. I can't SEE 4-5 inches!
Danimal said on 11/Aug/06
Hey Rob, when did you drop Hogan to 6'3.5". I don't doubt he's between 6'3.25" and 6'3.5", but when did you make the change and what prompted you to do so?
Danimal said on 10/Aug/06
Louie, Barkley is anything looks taller than 6'4.5" WITHOUT shoes. He isn't 6'3". You have to make claims Louie, by providing us with evidence, otherwise your claims have no credibility with us and you just come across as not knowing what you're talking about.
Viper652 said on 10/Aug/06
We know that, and Barkley isnt 6-3 lol. So you are saying NBA players are fudged by as much as 4-5 inches?
Louie John Buluran said on 10/Aug/06
cause most NBA players height are listed as incorrect barkly is 6 ft 4 1/2 now at age 43 he looks 6 ft 3..... Allan Houston admit he is 6 ft 5
Danimal said on 9/Aug/06
The sad thing Viper is that he's being serious.
Viper652 said on 9/Aug/06
How could Scott Hall be taller than NBA guys billed at 6-7? Louie I hope you are just kidding and not being serious with your posts.
Anonymous said on 8/Aug/06
Edge isn't 6'2, he's at least 6'4. I saw him one time at Best Buy and he had at least two inches over me and was the a inch shorter than my friend who was 6'5.
Louie John Buluran said on 8/Aug/06
yeah Scott Hall is 6 ft 5 barefeet and he is taller than most NBA players who are 6-6 and 6 ft 7
Danimal said on 7/Aug/06
Louie, you have NO idea what you are talking about AT ALL. Scott has stated he is really 6'5". Hogan has stated he is around 6'4". Edge has stated he is 6'2"-6'3". Hall was NEVER 6'6". Hall and Hogan were the same height in the WCW (mid-late 90's), which was when Hogan was still a shade off of 6'5". The only one you got right is Big Show. The rest, do you homework Louie, because you FAILED this test.

Frank said on 4/Aug/06
Viper that sounds about right but i would give Hogan 6ft 5 peak height
Viper652 said on 3/Aug/06
Its possible that Hogan was 6-4 1/2 and wore lifts to look 6-6-6-7. Doesnt wear lifts anymore and only shrunk 1-1.5 inches. I think this was Jason's argument. I dont think that sounds to farfetched actually.
Jordan said on 3/Aug/06
Hogan was 6'6 IMO since yes he was taller then Ali and here you see him taller then macho man 6'0 by 5 inches and even taller then Jesse ventura 6'2 by over 3 inches. Click Here
Frank said on 3/Aug/06
Texas Tom, If that is true then he was wearing lifts because he was more than 2 inches taller than the 6ft 3 or 6ft 2 1/2 Muhamad Ali and he was atleast 2 inches taller than the 6ft 4 King Kong Bundy???
Texas Tom said on 2/Aug/06
"Hogan's height is and has always been 194.8 cm, which is just under 6ft 4.5".

There is no way on God's green earth anyone could claim this guy's height has remained the same. Back in '85, when he was billed as 6-8, nobody but the truly saavy questioned it. But now? If they listed him as 6-8 right now it would be beyond laughable. The same goes for Superstar Graham, Piper, even Ric Flair. And wonder of wonders---of the four, three have had hip replacements. Flair, the only one who didn't, has a famously bad back and neck.

IMO, Hogan has lost between 1.5-2 inches, plus, due to his knees, may have stopped using lifts/augmenting boots.
Danimal said on 2/Aug/06
Actuallly, they had Kevin Levrone (the pro bodybuilder/actor) at 6'0", when he was only 5'9"-5'10".
Alex said on 1/Aug/06
Viper, some of's height are correct, but most aren't. A lot are off by 1-2 inches though.
Jordan said on 31/Jul/06
I know IMDB is usually bull, but 5'9 for nick sounds right--and Hulk does actually look a full 6'4 here. I still think he was prolly 6'6
Danimal said on 31/Jul/06
To put it in perspective, when Hogan was Nick's age, he was 6'5" (in High School) according to his long-time friend Brutus the barber beefcake (Ed Leslie).
ER. said on 31/Jul/06
5-9 looks correct, 6-1 is nuts.
Viper652 said on 30/Jul/06
Im shocked IMDB has a correct height listing for once.
Jordan said on 30/Jul/06
Yeah actaully IMDB has nick at 5'9
Alex said on 30/Jul/06
Jordan, Nick looks 5'9 in the picture you just posted with him, Brooke and Hulk.
Jordan said on 30/Jul/06
Look at the photo I have posted and you will see that Brook is prolly in heels which make her 6'1. Now, Hogan has lost iches of height, he has stated this on many occasions. In My pic I posted of him and brook shows that he is about 6'4 now, maybe less. Danimal brigns up points about Hogans height and I agree that there defenityly is height loss, however I think its more like 2 inches, but add that to the photo and youll see Hogan was about 6'6 in his prime.
Jordan said on 29/Jul/06
Brook is 5'10 and prolly has heels on so hulk is about 6'4 here

Longrob said on 28/Jul/06
I saw Hulk in Vegas at The Palms. His Daughter was doing a free promo so I took my wife and kids over.When I saw Hulk I was surprised at his height. I was 6'4 5/8 today with no shoes. He was about an inch and a half shorter than me. He said that he had lost some height with age and injury. 6'3 or so is about right
Paul said on 28/Jul/06
Halb, the Hulkster has had new hips and a new knee by his own admission. He has lost at least 2 inches in the last 15 years.
ed said on 28/Jul/06
I have a uncle who jused to be about 6'5". he's 55 years old now with back problems so he slouches a lot wich brings him down to about 6'3". this height los whent down in just 3 short years and he isn't even a wrestler, so for hogan to lose 3" in al those years of wrestling and all the surgery could be true.
stephanie said on 28/Jul/06
to me randy did look maybe a 1/2 inch or and inch taller than hogan
and when randy orton is announced sometimes they say 6'5
so i say around 6'4 for the hulksterr
TheMan said on 21/Jul/06
Id say Hogan is 193cm to be exact just edging 6,4. I think if he stood up straight youd see he's abit taller. The rock etc have been made to look taller IMO. But for he's full measurement height for when he's measured and standing up straight is 193cm. In he's prime he was probably around 6,6 197-198cm maybe. However i am not sure if he really was as high as 6,7 i found it hard to belive he could go from lets say 200cm to just 193-192cm. Thats like 8cm! A belivable height loss for 6,7 would be this. He would have to just barly be 6,7 in he's prime at 200cm then now he would 194 for the most but 195 in the morning.
Alex said on 20/Jul/06
Richard at a point Orton looked a bit taller then Hogan looked a bit taller then they looked the same. It was different angles which did that, but I strongly think Orton would be at least 1/2 inch taller unless Hogan is wearing lifts.

And Rob what happened to the Randy Orton page on the site??

[Editor Rob: a handful of pages were corrupted last week]
5-10chick said on 20/Jul/06
he got so short I was watching wrestling the other day when him and Orton who is like 6'4 was standing face to face and hogan was like 6'2
Danimal said on 20/Jul/06
When are they getting in the ring Richard? I didn't even know Hogan was making a return, or has he already?
Richard said on 19/Jul/06
It will be easier to see the difference when they face off. The angles can throw you off quite a bit Alex. To me Hogan looked a bit taller. But it might be accounted for by the angle, we'll know for sure when they get in the ring.
Alex said on 19/Jul/06
Hogan lost a minimum of 2 inches. He looks 6'3ish today and he was at the least 6'5 at his peak and possibly closer to 6'6.
Alex said on 19/Jul/06
It may have been the camera angle. I thought Orton was a little taller than Hogan.
JK said on 19/Jul/06
Ive met Randy Orton along with some other wrestlers, he is VERY TALL,
I am nearly a full 6'1'' myself and he Towered over my by 5 inches. Randy is 6'5''. Hogan is about 6'3.5''-6'4''
KingNick said on 19/Jul/06
Danimal, that training montage is great. Why is Jake "the snake's" music in the background? lol
Danimal said on 18/Jul/06
Guys, he didn't lose 3" in one, BUT, I still believe he lost the height in 3 time periods. His first height lost occured in 1990. His second was somewhere in the mid-late nineties and the 3rd was somewhere between 2000-2002. I believe he went from 6'6" to just under 6'5" to just over 6'3". There you have it. Pay attention to his NECK. It IS shorter since his last days in the WCW. IT's been FUSED. His hips were replaced in the early 2000's. His knees have been replaced. His back operated on several times since 1990.
Viper652 said on 18/Jul/06
Im still really skeptical about Hogans supposedly 3 inch height loss. Thats insane, really.

[Editor Rob:

just an aside:
1999 research paper on height loss with 2000 sample size, patient measurements taken in years from 1958 -> 1993, results were:
- average cumulative height loss from age 30 (when height loss began) to age 70: men 3cm (bit over 1 inch), women 5cm (just about 2 inches).

as for hogan, 2.5 inches by your 50's is extreme. But then he is not an average sized man and has not had an average lifestyle. His body might have taken more of a pounding over the years...who knows about lost cartilage or bone in his knees, is it possible his intervertebral discs degenerated, or did he ever have any compressed fractures in vertebrae, what surgeries on his back/neck occurred?]
Jordan said on 18/Jul/06
There was not as much as a difference from the late 90's to now. But of course if you take from the Mid to late 80's to now it looks as it could have been 3 inches possibly.
Viper652 said on 18/Jul/06
Honestly, Hogan doesnt look that much taller to me from the late 90s Dannimal, maybe an inch taller. Id say between 6-3 and 6-4 then.
TheMan said on 18/Jul/06
Im not sure who was taller than who from diffrent angles they both seemed taller than each other. Their similer heights none the less IMO.
Danimal said on 17/Jul/06
Hogan was not 6'3" in 1998 Viper. He has visibly lost a lot of height since then (HIS NECK and lower body). He was still about 6'4.5"-6'5". Today, without souding redundant, he's 6'3"-6'3.5".
Viper652 said on 17/Jul/06
IF thats the case Richard then Hogan could still be closer to 6-4,but I doubt it.
mike said on 17/Jul/06
wow nice training video clip, danimal, i really believe hogan was 6'5 to 6'6 back in the day, but when i saw him 3 years ago, he BARELY had 2 inches on my 6'2, i'd say 6'3 to 6'4 now of days depending on his posture or how his back is doin that day, whenever he fought andre he did look 6'5 minimum
Richard said on 17/Jul/06
Hogan was clearly the taller of the two... youguys can't make the judgement based on the angle where Orton is closer to the camera.. In every shot where the angle was better Hogan was the taller of the two. Also, look at when they shake hands. Hogan has about half an inch to an inch on Orton.
Jordan said on 17/Jul/06
Orton is 6'4 minimun actaully he has 1.5 inches on Dave Batista who is 6'3 so 6'4.5 could be Orton's possible height.
hero said on 16/Jul/06
he looked 6'3.5 next to full 6'4 randy orton...orton aint under 6'4..wake up...but yeah again orton was wearing boots and hogan just sneacker,i cant tell you something until the match...
Viper652 said on 16/Jul/06
That makes sense Danimal since Hogan was at least 6-3 in 1998, and Jay is 5-10 tops.
Danimal said on 16/Jul/06
When Hogan appeared on Leno in 1998 (I have it on VHS, he still had a good 5.5" on Leno. Today is another story though. I truthfully don't know what he has been reduced to in height, but I DO know what he once was. Hilbilly was at least 6'5"-6'6" according to myself and to Rob and we know that Hogan WAS taller. He probably was never 6'7", but I wouldn't discount 6'6" and change. If I were to guess, I would give him 6'3"-6'3.5" today.
Frank said on 16/Jul/06
Alex Brooke was on Jay Leno and she was wearing high heels and she was about the same height as Jay who is about 5ft 11....And Hogan did not look much taller than Jay too be honest
Viper652 said on 16/Jul/06
If Orton was taller then Hogan, then Hogan could very well be 6-2 now. I think Orton is just 6-3 flat.
Alex said on 16/Jul/06
Also on SNME Hogan had sneakers on which will give him 1-1.5 inches of height and Brook had on heels that were a good 3-4 inches, and Hogan still had her by 2 inches. So he was probably 6'4 in sneakers while she was about 6'2 in heels.
Alex said on 16/Jul/06
Hogan wasn't taller than Orton, Orton was taller than Hogan by an inch.
Richard said on 16/Jul/06
It looked like he had an inch on Orton and still he wasn't standing completely straight. Maybe Hogan is a full 6'4 and Orton a flat 6'3? I really can't see Orton below 6'3 though.
Danimal said on 15/Jul/06

Hulk Hogan has to be 6'5". He looked was about a half inch to an inch taller than Randy Orton on Saturday Night's Main Event. He was wearing sneakers. He still looks in incredible shape. I'd say he was 6'6" in his prime and now 6'5".
Alex said on 14/Jul/06
I personally think Hogan is 6'3 flat today, no shorter but no taller either. He has shrunk at least 2 inches and he was 6'5 at the least at his peak but was probably 6'5.5-6'6. So if he was 6'6 then he shrunk 3 inches which is possible. The man looks a few inches shorter than he did back then which most will agree on.
Viper652 said on 14/Jul/06
I almost take that as a compliment Danimal :). Anyway, Hogan does look 6-2ish to me on his TV show and when he appeared on Jay Leno. Im not saying hes a definite 6-2, just saying he can look that range to me at times.
jordan said on 14/Jul/06
Hogan looks 4.5 inches taller then brook who is 5'11 so 6'3 1/2 souns right for Hogan now,,,but in his day he was 6'6 or so--i'm sure of it
Danimal said on 14/Jul/06
Viper, Hogan isn't 6'2". He's still over 6'3". Looks like you're taking over where Jason and that other guy Cyclops left off ;).
Richard said on 14/Jul/06
nah... I have a hard time believing the Hulk is only 6'2, I mean I am 6'2.5 myself and there is no way I'm as tall as Hogan. He should at least have an inch on me. 6'3.5-6'4 sounds about right though.
Jordan said on 13/Jul/06
Danimal you are a smart for your last post--I always thought Hulk was about 6'6 and i'm gald you and Smoke agree with me.
Viper652 said on 13/Jul/06
I think Randy is 6-3, though Hogan could be closer to 6-2 now.
Richard said on 13/Jul/06
Wow the WWE actually bills Randy Orton as 6'4!!! Click Here
It will be interesting to see how tall he looks next to the Hulkster.
Funny... why should the WWE start telling the truth now? lol
smoke said on 13/Jul/06
Yeah Hogan was an inch taller then rock.
Danimal said on 12/Jul/06
Hogan was still taller than the Rock in 2002 and not the other way around. I give Rock 6'2" and Hogan 6'3" and change. By 2002, Hogan had lost a lot of height due to numerous surgeries. The man's neck was even fused and that's why it appears nowhere near as long as it once was. His new hips give him a much smaller and shorter lower body and his back surgeries, took height off his spine, and then there's his knee replacements gone wrong, which cause him to not be able to straighten out his legs. Put Hogan circa 1984-1989 (his prime) against the Rock of 2002, there would be no eye to eye staredown, because Hogan would have towered over him GUARANTEED.
Viper652 said on 12/Jul/06
Actually Hogan was an inch taller then Rock in that match.
Jordan said on 12/Jul/06
Hogan was old wehn he fought rock----In the 80's he was 6'6 or close to it--COme on we all know Hogan had shrunk by the Time he fought rock. One your right about your statement but Rucil is talking about Hogans max height. Rucils post shows Hogan to be 6'6 or at least 6'5 in the 80's
one said on 11/Jul/06
When hogan and the rock fought at wrestlemania, they went nose to nose in many moments, and the rock was always an inch taller
Rucil said on 10/Jul/06
Danimal I
'm gald you agree with my post, and yes hogan was likely 6'6 in his day
Danimal said on 10/Jul/06
It just goes to show. I used to state on here how Hogan had 2-3 inches on Jesse in the 80's and I wasn't wrong. BTW, Jesse isn't short by any means. There is a pic of him and Bill Clinton floating around, where Jesse has him by at least 2" and Bill Clinton is about 6'2". Hogan was at least 6'6" back in the day.
Rucil said on 8/Jul/06
Guys here hogan is 4 to 5 inches taller then macho and 3.5 taller then 6'2 jesse ventura

If you're interested in seeing how big Andre's head was, check out them movie "The Princess Bride". The scene wear the man in black (just in case someone hasnt seen the movie i dont want to give anything away) is choking Andre, they're heads are right next to each other. It's incredible how large Andre's head was.
Viper652 said on 23/Jun/06
My head is 9 as well.
Frank said on 23/Jun/06
I would say Hogan was 6ft 5 and Andre 6ft 10 at Wrestlemania 111
Was Hogan wearing lifts inside his boots thats another question ??
Anonymous said on 23/Jun/06
Viper, how long is your head from top of it to bottom of chin? Mine is about 9 inches. Gotta check to make sure. From the top of your head to eye level is more than mine but we still may have the same size head.
Viper652 said on 21/Jun/06
My head is over 5 as well.
Alex said on 21/Jun/06
Andre's head 6 inches, thats crazy if its true. Mine is about 4.5, maybe even 4 inches. I have an average size forehead but my entire head is 8.5-9 inches.
Jason said on 21/Jun/06
I'm at least on the 5 mark, maybe slightly over. I often have a problem finding hats that fit. :/ We got teeny weeny heads compared to poor old Andre, though!
Richard said on 21/Jun/06
My dad lost some height, when he was 60 he had lost almost 2 inches of height and he hasn't been wrestling. So it's not out of the question that Hogan has shrunk. 6'7 however seems out of the question. My guess is a solid 6'5 for his peak.

Jason you're right... when I remeasured my forehead down to my eye-level it was closer to 5 inches than the 4.5 I thought I had. So Andre has got to have had close to 6 inches on Hogan...but this poses an interesting question... was Hogan only 6'4 at wrestlemania? or was Andre in fact closer to 6'11 at wrestlemania 3 where he already looked like he had lost som height? It's a tough call... a theory could be that Hogan was indeed 6'5 back then and Andre 6'10.5... some thoughts on this anyone?
TNTinCA said on 21/Jun/06
Did he have any vertebrae fused? That is quite unusual to lose that much height. 2 1/2 inches.
And I am no doctor, but I am not certain if knee surgeries affect one's height.
Mike said on 20/Jun/06
Yeah guys Hogan is an interesting guy for height, the guy is my dad's age (52), my dad hasnt shrunk at all, granted he didnt do steroids and have multiple back/knee operations, but how could someone really shrink at least 2.5 inches, and the funny part is hogan above claimed he was 6'7 now saying 6'4 I'm 6'2 i have a couple of college friends that are legit 6'7 to 6'8 i have to look up real high to talk to them, no way could they shrink to 6'3 to 6'4, and then i could almost look them eye to eye. Some hogan pics he looks tall others rather not, the trump/andre picture he looks real tall, he didnt come nearly that close to towering over me like he did to trump.
Jason said on 20/Jun/06
I would say Andre's top of head to eye level would have been around 6''. Mine's a full 5'' and Andre's head was bigger than mine lol. Andre had an immense forehead, more than just a mere half an inch on the average guy.
Alex said on 20/Jun/06
Richard, Andre's head is long and big but not sure how big his forehead was. Mine is the same as yours about 4.5 inches so Andre's is more 5 inches then. I can't see his eye level being more than 5 inches from the top of his head. Andre was then 6'10, but I tell you by the early 90's Andre didn't look anything over 6'9.
Richard said on 20/Jun/06
How is that possible Alex?
Hogan was at Andre's eye-level and his head was huge. Now, I'm 6'2.5 and the distance from the top of MY head is 4.5 inches, isn't it safe to assume Andre had a bigger head than I do?
I think he was between 5 and 5.5 inches taller than Hogan and if Hogan was roughly 6'5 back then it's safe to assume Andre was 6'10-6'10.5. At least that's an argument that sounds plausible to me.
As for Hogan's peak I would place him at a solid 6'5" perhaps 6'5.5 in the early mornings. However the 6'6 listing seems a bit too tall. I'm a Hogan fan, but I have to be realistic too. He looks more 6'3-6'4 now.
Alex said on 19/Jun/06
I've also heard Hogan was really 6'5 being billed at 6'8. That could be true and if so then it makes Andre was 6'9-6'9.5 during WM 3. Andre wasn't more than 4.5 inches taller than Hogan during that staredown. I could say Hogan was 6'5 at his peak but no less than that though. Looked too tall back then to be under 6'5.
Jordan said on 19/Jun/06
I also agree that Hogan could be as short as 6'3 since rodman is 3 inches or so taller then Hulk. Thats why I told you guys to watch that video. I am a hogan fan and was amazed when I watched that video of Hogan looking about 6'3 or less.
Viper652 said on 19/Jun/06
I agree Jason. I find it hard to beleive he was ever 6-5 plus. I think he might have lost an inch to an inch and a half possibly. Could have been 6-4 at his peak.
Jason said on 19/Jun/06
The top of Hogan's head exceeds Nash's eye level meaning the difference between them is less than 4 1/2''. 4 1/2'' being the average man's top of head to eye level. Nash has a large overall head, but not a big forehead. If you look at the pic that's been posted on here once or twice before of Nash staring down Mabel, Mabel's forehead is way bigger.

I agree Mike & Viper, I sure can't see Hulk having lost that much. Height loss stories is just a convenient explanation favoured by some wrestlers to explain the discrepancy between their billed and actual heights.
Viper652 said on 19/Jun/06
Hogan doesnt look tall at all in those WCW matches even. He looks the same height as he does now, which is barely scraping 6-3, possibly shorter.
Mike said on 18/Jun/06
i was fortunate to get front row tickets to a smackdown event in 2003 when hogan was wrestling full time. I'm about 6'2, hogan walked right by me looked 6'4 ...but he had boots on i had sneakers, this was 3 years ago, so he prolly really is 6'3 to 6'4, the thing i wonder was he really 6'6?? I mean he's only 52-53 years old, i know hes had alot of surgeries and steroids but still, thats alot of height to drop, he looked tall when he was wrestlign in the late 80's, but on his tv show, he DEF doesnt have that "towering" look. The rapper the game i wouldnt have guessed at 6'4, but anyways i guess wed have to look at old pics of him and his buddy 50 cent whose 6 even i think to see if hes around 6'4
Jason said on 18/Jun/06
The first time I found out Hogan wasn't as tall as I'd been lead to believe was in 2000 when a question and answers thing in Powerslam magazine said although he was billed by the WWF as 6'8'' he was actually 6'4''.
Jason said on 18/Jun/06
Looked 1 inch between Rodman and Nash to me, but I won't argue with 1 1/2. If Rodman is 6'6 1/2'', that puts Nash at 6'8''. If Rodman is just a flat 6'6'' then Nash is 6'7 1/2'', or 6'7'' if the difference is just a square inch.
JT said on 18/Jun/06
Rodman usually looked about 2 inches taller than Jordan. He was always listed at 6'8" and then for some reason his height was lowered to 6'6". It could be like Barkley wanting to be thought of as 6'4", to make his rebounding and scoring accomplishments all the more impressive. Rodman has around 2 inches on Hogan. Just about every picture of Nash and Hogan in the late 1990s has Nash with at least a 5 inch height advantage.
Viper652 said on 18/Jun/06
This video could confirm that NAsh is no taller then 6-8.
Viper652 said on 18/Jun/06
I agree that Test looks at the very least 6-4 plus.
Richard said on 18/Jun/06
I think Rodman is 6'6.5 and Hogan looks 2.5 inches shorter than him making the Hulk 6'4 not 6'2 Viper.
Remember, the man has bad posture during the match, but in the closeups with Rodman he looks 2-2.5 inches shorter.
The interesting thing here is Nash... this would only make him 6'8-6'8.5 since he looked an inch and a half taller than Rodman.
Jordan said on 18/Jun/06
Its pretty weird to think as Hogan that short in the 90's but I guess thats the case being as Rodman is 6'6, hogan does not even look 6'4. Its a shame.
Jason said on 18/Jun/06
Hogan looks ~ 6'3 1/2'' to me with Rodman.
Jason said on 18/Jun/06
And Nash is only an inch taller than Rodman...!
Alex said on 18/Jun/06
Viper, by the way what was your guess on Test's height? Really I can't see this guy under 6'5. He looks 6'5 at least. I've heard more than a few times his real height was 6'5 and was just listed at 6'6-6'7. With Snoop Dogg he looked in the 6'5-6'6 range and both guy's footwear looked the same too.

When Test was on Fear Factor he was a good 5 inches taller than Matt Hardy who is 6'0 who was a couple inches taller than 5'8 Joe Rogan. And when Test was with Joe Rogan, Test was over a head taller.
Alex said on 18/Jun/06
I can't see Hogan anything under 6'3 today. He'll be 6'2 I can bet time he's 60.
Viper652 said on 16/Jun/06
Rodman is 6-6. So does that make Hogan 6-2?
Jordan said on 16/Jun/06
Sorry, It seems hogan does not have the boots with Rodman but recently rodman is only billed 6'6 so hogan cant be 6'4. Rodman was billed at 6'7 and 6'8 but many people and sources say that Rodman is only 6'6.
Jordan said on 14/Jun/06
Guys go to and type in WCW the Giant. They will show a match between hogan and 6'7 dennis rodman vs. The Giant and Lex Luger. 6'7 denise rodman apears 3 inches taller then hogan who is wearing cowboy boots. It seems hulk is 6'3 tops in the ninties, so he cant be 6'4 now. Game cant be 6'4
Alex said on 12/Jun/06
Guys, I just checked out the girls gone wild 2003 tape and at the end Snoop, Test, Coach, Stacy and the girls are together and Test and Snoop were near each other a few times in a pretty decent camera shot and Test looked a good 2 inches taller than Snoop, maybe a bit more. Snoop I saw had on sneakers which is going to give him 1-1.5 inches of height and Test had on some black boot type shoes on, no idea how big the heel was. I'd guess they were 1-1.5 inches. Now I do remember when Brock only was 2 inches shorter than Test but I bet Test had on smaller boots while Brock wore lifts in that match to make the height difference smaller. Also Test was a good few inches taller than Coach who is about 6'3 himself. Even with all the girls on the stage Test looked a solid 6'5 guy, maybe 6'6 next to them all.
Alex said on 12/Jun/06
Viper, Snoop does look 6'4 sometimes. Maybe because of his slim build.
Viper652 said on 11/Jun/06
Snoop really does look taller then 6-3 half the time.
Alex said on 10/Jun/06
Viper, not sure but I am going to check the tape out again. He was at least 100-110lbs more than Snoop though. LOL
Alex said on 10/Jun/06
When I have my 1.5 inch sneakers on I am 1.5 inches taller. Same with my 1 inch sneakers. I always thought with boots or whatever footwear you have on unless its heels you are that same height of the heel.
Alex said on 10/Jun/06
I remember on Fear Factor a couple years ago Test towered over the 5'8 Joe Rogan and Matt Hardy was 4 inches taller than Rogan and Test was at least 5 inches taller than Hardy. But with Lesnar who is like 6'2 I do remember Test looked only 2 inches or so taller than Lesnar. I am thinking Brock probably had on lifts to be closer in height with Test.
Jason said on 10/Jun/06
Yeah, but Test could have also been wearing some ''high heels''.
JT said on 10/Jun/06
Test looks 6'5" to 6'6", no less. He towered over 5'11"/6'0" Stacey Keibler, even when she wore high heels.
Jason said on 9/Jun/06
Yeah, I think so. I used to believe Test was 6'5'' once upon a time, though. He's only 1 1/2, 2 at best inches taller than Brock Lesnar. I remember on another board (I can't remember what board, this was a long time ago) I read a sighting from a 6'2'' guy who said he saw Test one morning having breakfast at some place on the road and he was really suprised that Test was only like around an inch taller than him.
Frank said on 8/Jun/06
Richard you are 100% correct...I am 5ft 11 1/2 barefoot and when i have on a show with a 1 inch heel im 6ft tall
Viper652 said on 8/Jun/06
Maybe Test was wearing bigger boots or lifts were involved Alex.
Richard said on 8/Jun/06
If the heel of a boot is 1,5 inches it doesn't give the person wearing them 1,5 inches. Just try it for yourself, you don't get the actual height of the heel. That's because the centre of the leg isn't at the back where you usually measure the sole. It's like the hypotenuse of a triangle, the height it gives you diminishes with the distance from the top of it. A 1,5 inch boot will give no more than 1 inch, at the very most.

Alex said on 7/Jun/06
Jason, Snoop is a good 6'3. He can appear a litte taller because of his skinny build. I remember on Girls Gone Wild on PPV a little over 3 years ago Test, Coach, Stacy, Torrie were on there and Test was at least 2 inches taller than Snoop putting Test at 6'5 minimum as most would think. I am going to check the tape out again where they are next to each other and I'll make sure the height difference. Thats why I can't see Test being as short as 6'3 as you estimated him at.
Jason said on 7/Jun/06
I think Snoop Dog is taller than the Game and he's like 6'3''.
