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.

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.

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 tops...lol. 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 youtube.com 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.

Incidently, Earthquake ( John Tenta ) died today ( June 7th ). He didn't reach his 43rd birthday :(

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''.
