@RP: yea I agree with Chaos. He definitely was not 6’6” afternoon or lunchtime. But I don’t rule out 6’5.5 just yet or 6’5 3/8” but I’d lean more toward the standard of 6’6 out of bed and 6’5.25 afternoon/evening 6’5 extreme low. In the end, I think 6’5.5” is a fair compromise for his listing here since we are unsure as to when he began to lose it. Then he would only be 1/4” over his low or 1/8” over his lunchtime

Hogan at 6'5.5 would be a fair listing.
Alex 6'0 said on 8/Jun/21
Hogan's arms weren't 24 either. They were really 22 which is huge. 21 plus is pro bodybuilding arms.
Canson said on 8/Jun/21
@Chaos: I agree 100% on Andre. He’s long overdue. Hogan needs minimum 1/2” if not 3/4” to 6’5.25”. Both are over listed
RP said on 7/Jun/21
Chaos 6’2.5 is right! Peak Hogan’s (afternoon standards) barefoot height was 6’5.25” to maybe even 6’5” flat. Andre was 6’11” barefoot & 7’0.25” (214 CM) with shoes on. Which he’s admitted before in an early 1970’s shoot interview “my real height is 214 CMs” Andre was a fraction over 7’1” in his custom made size 22 cowboys with a 2.375” heel. Also, Paul Wight’s peak needs down grading to 6’11.5”...which was his true barefoot (peak) height & he was just a hair under 7’1” in basketball sneakers. There is two tons of evidence that supports all of this!! Rob, what are you waiting for?

Peak Hogan: 6’5.25”...I could even accept 6’5.5” to compromise.
Andre: 6’11”
Peak Paul Wight: 6’11.5”...current Paul Wight: 6’9.75”

I agree with Hogan’s current of 6’3” flat. He’s 6’3” still when he actually displays perfect posture.
Chaos 6'2.5 said on 6/Jun/21
Hogan and Andre both need a full inch downgrade. Sex Lies and Headlocks says of Hogan “a six foot five gentle giant of a man with twenty-two inch arms and a comic book cleft chin” and of Andre it says “Andre was six-eleven, though advertised as high as seven-foot-five”. It’s a good read too
RP said on 29/May/21
A gentleman a few years ago posted himself with a pair of Andre’s custom made cowboy boots that he bought at an auction on an Andre The Giant tribute page on Facebook.. He said & provided photos of the heel on those size 22 boots being measured at their rear peak height at exactly 2-3/8” (2.375”) I’ll see if I can track that post & pics, assuming the Facebook page is still open. It was around 2016 or 2017 when he posted it, I do believe ??

Andre's big boots were measured at 1.8'' . Hogan's boots were shorter so how the hell they are over 2'' ? These guys had cowboys boots on , not women high heels ... check your eyes

Those boots being auctioned supposedly belonged to Andre but I’ve never seen him wear any with heels that small. These are his cowboy boots next to those of Bill Watts from October 1983 Click Here Click Here or the same month he was photographed in dark brown cowboy boots with Arnold and Wilt Chamberlain during the Conan filming. Watts said he wore a size 13 boot, or probably around Hogan's size. Those aren't 1.8 inch heels - 2.8 inches is more likely.

Here are Andre’s heels from a few years later Click Here

@Canson I do afternoon heights too, else I’d be claiming 6’2.5/8
Canson said on 21/May/21
@Undertaker Frank: hogan also has poor posture. I don’t rule out maybe 6’2.75 today but I can see the argument for 6’3” still. His peak was overstated though. He was never more than about 6’5.25” or so. I can see a 6’5.5 listing since it would be a couple hours or so out of bed. 2-4 but not 6’6”. I see 6’6 out of bed in his prime. By Rob’s standards that would mean 6’5 3/8 maybe and by mine 6’5.25” since I claim my afternoon height as opposed to lunch. I used to list myself as lunch tho when I claimed 6’4 3/8 before

He hasn’t lost 4” yet let alone 3”. It’s 2-2.5 range. 6’3 today 6’5/6’5.5 range peak
Canson said on 18/May/21
@Viper: I could buy 6’5.5 and 6’1.75 or 6’5.25 and 6’1.5”. Don’t see the footwear so possible Hogan’s is thicker

Viper, Hogan was wearing Cowboy Boots with a BIG HEEL in that picture
miko said on 18/May/21
In his cowboy boots mid-80's peak Hulk was probably walking around at 6'7.5 range if he was a touch over 6'5 barefoot. I'm guessing his cowboys were in the 2/2.25 inch range, they certainly weren't anywhere near as big as Andre's whoppers.

Hulk Hogan has always been "deceptively tall, albeit taller than average." He looked 6'6" peak, but not 1/16th taller. In 1990, standing next to the legit 6'2" Ultimate Warrior, Hogan looked a solid 4 inches taller.


Click Here Rob has Warrior at 6’1.5 (or ~ 6'2.5" in boots and a little shorter with his head tilted way back here).

Hulk Hogan was at a bare minimum 6'8 9/16" barefoot mid afternoon at age 21 but he often gave the impression of being a near seven footer.
He absolutely towered over Richard Beltzer, Mr T, Buster Douglas and others.
He was clearly taller than John Mutazak.
There are many photos here.

@Ronster: you’re full of it. You’re easily one of the goofiest, most comical posters here. Why are your conspiracy theories all linked to people being taller than listed? I’ve never once seen you challenge Rob’s listing as being too high, only too low even calling Rob out before about low Listings Listen to how silly you sound below:

RONSTER said on 29/Apr/21

O’Neal was listed at 6’3” his freshman year at U of Florida and then 6’4” every year thereafter Click Here
College or university listings are not very reliable at all, and are quite often way under the persons height. My son who is 6’2” played university football, and they had him listed at 6’ every year and 30-40 lbs lighter than his actual weight.

So most of these athletes have aspirations about playing professional sports. Why would they under bill them and potentially undercut their chances at a career and a future? And if you look closely enough at college sports, when someone is measured at the combine, they are almost always shorter (barefoot) and many times even in shoes than their billed height in college, which is in shoes. Very rarely are they under listed.

@RP: I’d give Trent around my height maybe slightly taller. He measured that at the combine so earlier in the day.
Canson said on 1/May/21
Titus looks 6’3” next to an aged 6’7 Phil Jackson and Vernon Davis who is 6’3”. As for someone being under listed by 2” I find that hard to believe. I played college and high school basketball and was always listed at least an inch taller sometime 2”. I was listed 6’5 at 6’3 at one point then 6’6 at 6’4.25” (was measured earlier in the day 6’4.5). Even my 6’7 barefoot friend was listed 6’8 after initially being listed 6’9”. One guy on our team was near his listed height at 6’8 and he was 6’7.5-.75

My son who is 6’2” played university football, and they had him listed at 6’ every year and 30-40 lbs lighter than his actual weight. They use student volunteers for stats and they are less than reliable. Besides, he starts out at 6’3”, then goes up an inch the following year but no more after that. Let’s say now he is 6’4” for arguments sake, Hogan with his bad knees and posture still hit over 6’3” next to him and is 67 years old to boot.
RP said on 28/Apr/21
I stand corrected, Trent Willians is actually 6’4.5” barefoot (6’4-5/8”) & not 6’5”. So, we have two pics of Titus with men of known Exact height. One he looks 6’3.5” and the other he looks 6’3” flat.
RP said on 28/Apr/21
@ Vegas CH,
If footwear is equal in that photo? Then you have a 6’3” Davis & a 6’3.5 Titus. Titus also looked 6’3.5” in the pic with legit 6’5” Left Tackle Williams.
Hotspots said on 28/Apr/21
Seems more 6-5 than 6-6 peak imo
Vegas CH said on 23/Apr/21
In that photo Titus looks noticeably taller than Davis. His eyeline is higher and even top of hat is struggling to match top of Titus head.

One photo though
Canson said on 23/Apr/21
@Viper and Miko: For this site Davis would be 6’3 or 6’3.25”. Viper is right Titus isn’t taller than Vernon Davis. Davis looks a legit 6’3 guy in most pics or somewhere around that Mark (I don’t rule out 6’2 7/8 either) and he looked around 6’3” in person. I’d give him that Mark but no higher if we use afternoon heights being I’m 6’4.25 afternoon height more so than 6’4 3/8 or 6’4 1/2”.

You mean Titus listed 6’3 in college? Could have grown 0.5 inch. Not inconceivable.

Titus is listed 6-3.

He's no 6-3.5 at a low
Canson said on 18/Apr/21
@Vegas: I agree on Tiny but depending on the gear maybe even taller. Not sure how much wrestling gear adds but I see Tiny as a classic 6’5 guy peak height. 6’5.75 out of bed and 6’5 flat afternoon evening.
Canson said on 18/Apr/21
SMH. How is Titus 6’5? He’s the same height as Vernon Davis who is max 6’3. I’ve met Davis in person. He’s maximum 6’3” flat by this site’s standards. Keep in mind combines are taken earlier in the day. Viper is right Titus was listed 6’3” so he won’t be over 6’3”. Funny how people are taller than they are listed according to Ronster yet he calls anyone who lists someone below what Rob does or below what Said celeb claims a downgrader

That could be true. In Running Man , Arnold was 6’0 - 6’1 at the time barefoot and Ventura had 2 inches on him easily barefoot.
Public Enemy said on 18/Apr/21
Do you have any photo apart from with Hogan? I would be very interested to see please. I have Titus at 6’3.5 max normal low based on how he stacks up with 6’2 ish Bautista. Based on that Hogan looked at 6’2,5 at Wrestlemania.

He was a big boy at peak and will not dismiss 6’5.75 in his early twenties hence the 6’6 round up but believe that a 6’5.5 peak is believable.
viper said on 17/Apr/21
Ventura's 6-2 listing is probably partly right.

He may have been 6-2.5 at most

Public Enemy; Titus O Neal is 6’5” not 6’3”. Hogan was within an inch or less of him, Hogan can still hit 6’4” when he stands up straight.
Vegas CH said on 16/Apr/21
RP please provide proof of your claims otherwise it will be treated as heresay.

Kane wore 2-2.5 inch platforms in late 90. You are saying he also wore internal did he not break an ankle?

If your claims are correct we need to drop a bunch by an inch
Studd in wrestling boots was at most an inch taller than 6'4.5-6'5 Fralic so he would need to drop to 6'5 max if wearing internal lifts.

Orton in wrestling boots is about 6'5, shorter than ~6'4 barefoot McIntyre (who is about 6'5.5 in his gear). McIntyre himself looked 2.5 inches shorter than Strowman in boots past Monday. Strowman stands ~6'8 in wrestling gear, we know this because we have back to back comparison with 6'10 3/4 measured NBA player

Sid was at least 2 inches shorter than Nash in wrestling gear and not huge amount taller than Luger. Lister was about 6'6.5 in his doc Martin type footwear. You saying he was only 6'4 barefoot?

Rollins looks his height barefoot ie his wrestling boots give about 1-1.25 inches over barefoot. Batista was towered by Khali in his gear. If he was wearing internal lifts he was struggling with 6'2 barefoot

Big Show we saw with Akebono the height difference between gear and barefoot wasn't significant. His wrestling boots gave between 1-1.5 inches depending. No evidence he wore lifts. We have barefoot photo of him circa 95 where he looks taller next to Hogan and Savage than on TV lol, Savage looking under 6ft there Click Here

Re: Sid’s height, he does not come across as the sharpest knife in the drawer so it wouldn’t be surprising if he got his actual height wrong. This is not 6’6” with Vince and DiBiase from the mid 1990s Click Here Here’s Sid and Vince standing in about the same spot in the ring during the same interview Click Here

If Sid wore lifts in the ring (and there's no evidence of that), he wore them out of the ring as well as he looks around 6’7” with ~ 5’8”ish Mamun from this site Click Here
RP said on 15/Apr/21
Guys, we can’t use in ring gear pics of Sid Eudy from the 1980’s & 1990’s to judge other guys heights. Sid wore an internal 1” lift in his ring boots. Several guys did & do. Sid, Kane, Paul Wight, Big John Studd, HHH, Batista, Seth Rollins, Zeus...Just to Name a few popular ones.

Randy Savage was a legit inch shorter than Piper when boot in equal footwear , but he at times was in cowboy boots making himself taller . If I'm not wrong there is even an argument for 5'11.5

Titus O’Neil looked an inch taller than Hogan at Wrestlemania . Hogan looks 6’2.5 tbh based on the comparison.

@184guy and RP: RP’s estimates are very good! I’ll split it for Taker and say 6’7” flat perhaps but I don’t rule out 6’7.25”. I doubt he was under a flat 6’7” peak. He was probably 6’8 out of bed in his prime and could’ve gotten close to 6’9” in shoes in the first 2-3 hours even closer out of bed. Kane may have been slightly taller. My opinions are below.

Peak (legit) afternoon barefoot heights
Hogan 6’5.25” agreed
Undertaker 6’6.75” id say 6’7” flat or a hair over
Sid Eudy 6’6.25 agreed
Big John Studd 6’6.5” not sure verdict is out
Hillbilly Jim 6’5” verdict out
Scott Hall 6’5” looks good
Kevin Nash 6’9.25 looks about right
Andre The Giant 6’11.5” I’d say 6’11 tops maybe even under the mark
Big Show 6’11.5” I’d say 6’11
Kane 6’7.5” agreed maybe 1/4” less but 6’7.25 minimum
Uncle Elmer 6’7.5” not sure
Flair 5’11.5” agreed
Savage 6’0.5” maybe but I see 184guy’s argument for 6’0
Piper 6’1” probably accurate
Ernie Ladd 6’8.5” not sure
King Kong Bundy 6’3” not sure
Vince McMahon 6’1” looks good
Sting 6’2” agreed
Lex Lugar 6’3” agreed
Jesse Ventura 6’3” agreed
Ultimate Warrior 6’1.75” I’d say 6’1.5
Canson said on 10/Apr/21
@Editor Rob: I agree with RP. Being Sid was 6’6.25 peak height, there is no way Hogan was just 1/4” shorter. That can look like an afternoon height for Sid perhaps but to be consistent, Hogan is at least 1/2-1” shorter. More like an inch and to tell you the truth I see 3cm in some pics. That means 6’5 but maybe post height loss or maybe he was just 6’5.25 peak. That said, 6’5.5” would be the fair trade off. That’s the most and I don’t rule out a peak 6’5.25”. He also looked 1.5-2” shorter than Taker who is listed 6’7.25”. It’s possible he was that height in the late 70s and shrunk to 6’5 (if he already wasn’t closer to it to begin with) by the 80s then 6’4 by the early 90s. Remember Tiny Lister also said they were the same height.

RP I agree with most of your list. However, Lex Luger was absolutely not a full 6'3" afternoon. I was a good 1/2" taller than Luger in the late 80's. Max for Luger was 6'2 3/4. He may have even been 6'2 1/2". I would say he was close enough to claim 6'3", but he definitely was a little under

@ Canson. I 100% totally agree with you! 6’5.5” at this point, is the perfect peak height listing for Hull Hogan. I also agree with you, in that he was 6’5.25” peak afternoon height in the mid 80’s to early 90’s (1984-1991). But, most people agree on here that Hulkster was probably (and even looked) 1/4” if not a 1/2” taller from (1978-1982) time frame. Could simply have been his footwear though.

Rob, seriously Brother!...time to change Hogan to peak 6’5.5” & current 6’3”. Especially now that we now know that peak Sid Eudy was actually 6’6.25”.

yeah Hogan in last year could be at a point he is struggling with 6ft 3 now.
miko said on 7/Apr/21
In the photos I've seen, there aren't many out yet, Hulk looked 6'2.75/6'3 range, about 5'5.5/5'5'75 shorter than Nash, who is still 6'8.5+ range. Hulk looked like he could stretch a bit more out of his knees but until we hopefully see him with more WWE people over Wrestlemania weekend it's hard to know.

Wish we could've seen a pic of him and Hall both standing properly next to each other, as Hall is about 6'4 flat these days.
SeanR said on 7/Apr/21
Saw the Wwe hall of fame last night and it looks like Hogan has lost more height.

Nash had a solid 6.5/7 inches on Hulk. Maybe Hogan is only 6’2” flat these days? Even Scott Hall looked taller than Hulk.

Rob, here is brand new photo of Hogan next to Kevin Nash in 2021 (even Scott Hall who has also lost height is several inches taller than Hogan today when they stand straight in the video version of this pic):

@Sean R: even if Rob goes under with just the evidence here, it will be to what you said worst case. Maybe even just 6’5.75”. I can’t see any lower without more concrete proof. 6’5.5 or .75 is justifiable by 3 things:

1. Hulk Hogan’s pictures with Trump (although not concrete, it’s definitely not 4” between them) 6’5.5 is a good shout
2. Hogan’s pics with Taker (Taker is clearly at least 1.5” taller maybe 2”). Even going minimum that’s 6’5.75 being Taker is listed 6’7.25 and the catch all is 6’5.5” based on that.
3. With Sid it’s clear who is taller. While it looks an inch pretty easily, we can decipher minimum 1/2” or more precisely 3/4”.

That said 6’5.5” is a fair peak listing and probably the catch all for everyone here. Some do believe he’s 6’6 peak some 6’5”. If we go with 6’5.5” it’s (imho) maybe within 1/4” of his afternoon peak height. I have 6’5.25” but 6’5.5” is possible but no higher. I’d actually say the lower of the two is more likely or maybe within mm of it on either end. If Rob went with 6’5.75” and the consensus is 6’5.5” it’s just a measurement 2-4 hours out of bed. While 6’5” flat may be believable to some, it’s clear 6’6 is too high for him as he almost never looks it. Tiny Lister also pegged him as 6’5”. So to be fair the difference may lie in between
viper said on 4/Apr/21
The mentors list had Hogan at 195cm

That may be right on the money for his peak. That could be a night measurement like Rock's 187cm I can buy at the end of the day for his peak
viper said on 4/Apr/21
He's flat out shorter than 6-6 Sid

I mean, it's clear as day.

Hogan was 6-5
miko said on 4/Apr/21
I've still got Sid at 6'6.5 range peak but even if Sid was just over 6'6, I can't imagine Hulk ever being eye to eye with him in a staredown. He never ever looked that tall.
Ben Bell said on 4/Apr/21
I’d go 6’5.5 peak.
2014 when I met him he was definitely no less than 6’3. Stood with me he looked 6’3.5.
You can see how much height he’d lost, his hips were out to one side and knees bent. I was surprised how big and bulky he was.

Looking at photos of the 2020/21 Hall of fame Hogan looks to have lost even more height.
Be interesting to see how he looks when all the photos from the weekend come out.
I’m going with stood tall today just hitting 6’3. I think with his regular posture he wasn’t be much over 6’2.
SeanR said on 2/Apr/21
Rob is not going to go below 6’6” unless there is proof he was under that. 6’5 1/2” is my guess but I just can’t image Hulk Hogan from the 70’s being as tall as 6’6 1/4” peak Sid.
Alex 6'0 said on 1/Apr/21
I could see 6'5.5 but no more. Andre was 6'10 range at wm 3 prob. Funny they wanted us to believe it was 8 inches difference! Hogan currently 6'2 imo.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Apr/21
I wouldn't be surprised if 6'5" flat peak, but maybe more 6'5" and some change.
Canson said on 31/Mar/21
@Editor Rob: Viper has a point with his post. There is no way Hogan is 6’6” in the Instagram video Hong posted on 25/March. If you see the video it aligns with how Hogan looked with a peak Undertaker or with Sid. Meaning he was never 6’6” other than upon waking. And you’ve met Mr.T. Hogan looked 6’5-6’5.5 (really at times just 6’5” next to Sid) but could look 6’5.5 with Taker. 6’5.5 would probably be a height earlier in the day. 6’5.25” is more like it for afternoon

viper said on 30/Mar/21
Best evidence Hogan was 6-5 max.

I mean Hogan really only looks 6-4 with MrT

Rob should at least downgrade him to 6-5.5
RP said on 30/Mar/21
Even when they both stand with good posture, it is only a max 6” inch height difference. If both are in equal footwear?...that gives you a 5’10.5” to 5’10.75” peak Mr. T & a 6’4.5” to 6’4.75” peak Hulk Hogan.

Not far fetched though.
Hulk Hogan 6’4.75”
Andre The Giant 6’10.75”
Big John Studd 6’6.5”
John Tenta 6’5”
One Man Gang 6’5.5”
Hillbilly Jim 6’4.75”
Roddy Piper 6’0.5”
Randy Savage 6’0”
Ric Flair 5’11.25”
King Kong Bundy 6’2.75”
Ultimate Warrior 6’1.75”
Sting 6’2”
Lex Lugar 6’3”
Vince McMahon 6’1”
Jesse Ventura 6’2.75”
Scott Hall 6’4.75”
Undertaker 6’6.75”
Sid Eudy 6’6.25”
Uncle Elmer 6’7.75”

This all seems pretty legit, when these guys are all in equal footwear with no footwear tricks or big boots.

Hogan at 6’6 peak lol he looked 6’5 at peak nowadays he looks 6’2 in a half he was 6’3 probably in the 2000s.
Canson said on 19/Mar/21
@Chaos Control: yea he’s definitely overlisted. I remember some posters who were previously here before being Banned that used the excuse of someone being in a certain range for the day or that they would measure it at some point during the day and calling it valid. IMHO since height is measured standing it should be your afternoon height being you only measure taller due to laying down. As for Hogan the only way he measures 6’6” in his prime is if it’s right out of bed imho. 6’5.25 could be more like it for afternoon. He may have even been just 6’5.75 if he measured 6’5” flat in the afternoon
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 16/Mar/21
Hogan was just 6’5 flat. Maybe 6’5.25 but I honestly think he’s way overlisted. Andre was probably 6’11 over 7’ but considering how tall and heavy he was I’m giving his daily shrinkage the benefit of the doubt
Vegas CH said on 14/Mar/21
Matt 1990 you have peak Hogan at 6'6 and peak Big Show at 6'10

Not happening...
SeanR said on 12/Mar/21
Hi Rob,

I know these 2 have been requested in the past but is there a chance to put Rick Rude and Curt Hennig (Mr Perfect) on celebheights?

I have Rude at 6’3.5” and Hennig at 6’2” (maybe 6’1 3/4”). Although Rude looked 2 inches taller than 6’2” Sting and 6’2” Road Warrior Hawk he may have had something in his boots.

Covvvid1984. said on 4/Mar/21
Rick Rude stated in a Japanese wrestling magazine he was 6-3 and Hogan was 2” taller at 6-5 but the WWF needed to inflate it to 6-8 as Vince thought it was a better selling point.
Canson said on 3/Mar/21
I doubt Hogan is much under his listed height today. If anything maybe 6’2.75 but I lean more toward him being slightly over 6’3 still than under. His peak was maybe half inch lower than listed and would be 6’6 out of bed or maybe a hair over
Canson said on 3/Mar/21
@Danimal: assuming Ali’s afternoon height was 6’2.5, I’d give Hogan 6’5.5”. That’s how he looked with Sid too as well as Taker (6’5.25-.5 range). But I disagree. A current Hogan would still edge a peak Ali
Canson said on 3/Mar/21
@Chaos Control: agreed
Danimal 176.7 said on 2/Mar/21
Another pic from the same photo shoot of 6'2.5" Muhammad Ali who isn't standing straight (but Hogan IS in this pic as opposed to the previous one) in 1985: Click Here. Either way, Hogan had minimum 3" on Ali, if not more at that point. A current day Hogan would have been shorter than Muhammad Ali in his prime.

VINCENT N LONANO said on 1/Mar/21
I met him several times backstage in the 80's and at a few events in the 90's. He's was all of 6'6" in street clothes. He turned his back to me and I was looking at the base of his neck between the traps and I'm (was) 6' tall. He was full head over just about every normal person. In comparison I've met Ric Flair several times and he was around my height looking him right in the eye walking next to him and talking.
Covvvid1984. said on 1/Mar/21
The more I watch him in matches the more I see 6-5 peak.
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 27/Feb/21
He’s described in the book Sex Lies and Headlocks as “a six-foot five gentle giant with twenty two inch arms and a comic book cleft chin”. Just for this I’m guessing 6’5, I really haven’t seen that much 80s-era wrestling
Danimal 176.7 said on 26/Feb/21
This is Hogan taking to Stone Cold Steven Austin in 2019 about all of the surgeries he has had. And it was confirmed that he WAS shorter between when he left WCW in 2000 and when he re-appeared in WWE to fight the Rock in early 2002 (he said he had hip replacement before the match). Anyway, here is the snippet of Hogan (under his real name Terry in the interview) telling Steve Austin exactly the surgeries he had (and how they cut away so much bone and fused the rest....hence the severe height loss): Click Here
Canson said on 25/Feb/21
@Rampage: I saw the episode of Walker Texas Ranger when he and Sting were on last night. Season 9. It will play again in a few months as 6 episodes a night air on Charge in chronological order. Mind you this was close to 21 years ago but Hulk was definitely not less than 6’3 then maybe still 6’3.5 next to Chuck Norris when they stood side by side in the gym. As far as his peak that’s possible. I def say he wasn’t under 6’5”. I’d estimate him in between 5 and 6
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/21
I think in all honestly barefoot in prime condition...he was probably closer to 6ft6 than 6ft5
Canson said on 23/Feb/21
@Danimal: I doubt he’s as low as 6’1 3/4” today. I could buy 6’2.75” for him but could also buy 6’3.25” at times. He can look his listed height of 6’3” if he stands straight.

@Covvvid1984: overrated to an existent but not the most. A 6’5” range guy (at his peak) claiming 6’7” isn’t that unforeseen or abnormal. Lots of basketball players do it. Specially 6’5 and change which Hogan likely was
Duhon said on 22/Feb/21
Hulk in the 80s looked like a big 6'5" guy and with the right boots could come off as 6'6". However factoring out those boots he was likely 6'5"+.

Hulk still looking a very solid 6'3, arguably a touch over it standing tall. I'm certainly not seeing more than 1.5' between them and probably less.

Not buying over 6-6 peak. 6.5.5 is closer to the truth imo.
miko said on 6/Feb/21
He first started looking a tad shorter around his early WCW days in 1994/1995 he looked more 6'4.75/6'5 than say 6'5/6'5.25.

If he lost any height before that I'd be surprised, although you can't rule out him having lost a tiny fraction.

I think injuries and steroid usage started to really catch up with him after that and he looked to be down to 6'4/6'4.25 range by the end of the WCW days in 2000/2001.

In his 2002 WWE comeback he tended to look about 6'4 when he stood straight, but with his posture and knees bent he could seem under that at times.

His height over the last 15 years has been up and down, but he's still quite clearly in the 6'3 range when he stands decent. He didn't look THAT much shorter than 6'4.5 Drew McIntyre in a staredown and backstage segment.
John Gentry said on 6/Feb/21
6ft6.25 barefoot in the late 1970s. Maybe 6ft6.5 out of bed. So many people here focus on Hogan in the prime of his career in the mid 1980s. Hulk already wrestled and slammed Andre in 1979 in Shea Stadium. Hulk already had wear and tear and suffered from scoliosis. Referencing pictures from 1985 does not give us Hulk’s peak height.
Leon11 said on 5/Feb/21
He was never 6'6 at his peak. At MOST he was 6'5.5. But i think he was little over 6'5 at his peak, and 6'2.5 right now.
Canson said on 3/Feb/21
@Chaos Control: that’s still a possibility. I would lean more toward 6’5.5 being the upper and 6’5 the lower end. I would rule out sub 6’5 and over 6’5.5
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 3/Feb/21
I honestly thought his peak was 6’5, cause I areas that in Sex Lies and Headlocks, you guys have talked me into upgrading him if anything
Tizwaxxx said on 3/Feb/21
Watch the tag team fight with hogan and piper vs flair and vicious in 92. Sid looks so much taller than hogan. I’m struggling to see him over 6-5.5 peak. Looked 6-4.75 in that match in 92. Now weak 6-3 or under.
Big ed said on 1/Feb/21
Ye definitely the camera favours rock sure just look at him to Nash in parts of the segment hogan was probably 6'3.5" rock about or close to 6'3 2002
Canson said on 30/Jan/21
@RJT: I think the angle of the camera is a factor. I would’ve thought Hogan was taller all things considered. If the Rock was ever 6’3, it was just that. Never over. My guess is he was just under afternoon. 6’2.75 but 6’3 possible. As for Hogan his posture wasn’t as good as Rock
RP said on 29/Jan/21
@ Big Ed...from ‘77-‘87 His billed height constantly went back & forth between 6’7” & 6’8”...for no rhyme or reason. Around 1988 they (WWF) finely settled on 6’7” for good. Which carried into the WCW.

He was bang on 6ft6 barefoot in the 1970s buy 1987 probably 6ft5.5 and in 1992 6ft5 sid looked taller cos he wore lifts to look taller to match his 6ft9 billing hulk hogan wore normal foot ware he started to ware bigger foot wear in wcw in 1995 cos he had shrunk to 6ft4.75 and was 6ft4 when he returned to wwe in 2002 and is currently just scraping 6ft3 barefoot

I've got Hulk at 6'5/6'5.25 and Sid was 6'6.5 range IMO. Can't buy him at flat 6'6 range.

If Sid was 6'6 then Hulk never saw 6'5 IMO. If Hulk lost any height by 1990 aged 37 it was minimal.

There was no reliable pic of them when Hogan was in his peak. But Hogan losing height in the 80s is possible. He looks like he could’ve been 6’5.5 peak perhaps best case

@Rising: yea I can see anywhere from 6’5-6’5.5” range. 6’5.25-.5 probably more specifically
Big ed said on 22/Jan/21
Sid obviously had bigger boots bringing him to 6'8
SeanR said on 21/Jan/21
Hogan was 6’7” like he claimed, but with his shoes on.

6’’6” listing here is probably late morning, early afternoon.

I know there is a clip with Hogan on the Johnny Carson show in 1982 and he looks 3 inches taller than 6’3”’ Ed McMahon there. But Hogan has cowboy boots on giving him the footwear advantage.

Hogan at peak was either 6’5.5” or 6’5 3/4”

Rising174cm said on 21/Jan/21
If he was billed at 6'6" back in the 70s then that shows Hulk's 6'6.5" claim was in shoes so maybe 6'5.5" peak barefoot as I've long thought, but no taller. He could look barely 6" taller than Mr. T when in similar footwear.
Canson said on 20/Jan/21
Sid may have been a hair over 6’6 peak as he claimed. I doubt Hogan closed the day out at 6’6” flat but as a morning height it’s a good possibility. 6’5.5” was a reliable estimate for his prime as is 6’5.25”. Sid likely had a good 2cm maybe 1”

Here is the video from the early 1990s with Hulk Hogan and Sid Vicious. Click Here

Hulk Hogan was never 6'6 or 6'7. He could of been a little over 6'4 tops. Hulk Hogan looked taller because he constantly wore cowboy boots or other shoes with thick soles to look taller.
Canson said on 6/Jan/21
@Harry Sachs: Hogan wasn’t at his peak height in the 90s. But in the 90s I can see 6’4”. While I don’t see 6’6”, I could see peak 6’5 range. 6’6 Out of bed is possible or 6’5.75. Comparing him to Sid would mean you’d need a shot of Hogan in his prime with Prime Sid which is rare being Sid is 7 years younger.
Canson said on 6/Jan/21
@Jay P: fair estimate. I doubt as high as 6’3.5 in the afternoon now a days but maybe 6’3.25”. I also don’t see below 6’2.75. A finer range may be 6’3-6’3.25 or 6’2.75-6’3 or 6’2.75-6’3.25 for a wider range. I will say that I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t come down to 6’3 flat but wouldn’t be surprised if he went below the mark being how bad his posture is. Out of bed imho 6’3.5-6’4 though

Hulk Hogan looked 2 inches shorter than a 6'5" Drew Mcintyre on Monday Night Raw last night. It's crazy how much height he has lost as he was one of the taller Superstars in the 80s and 90s! Hogan can't be no more than 6'3"-6'3.5" tops these days!
Public Enemy said on 5/Jan/21
It’s possible after seeing Editor Rob video on Hulk that in his prime he could have been 6’5.75 or about 6’6.

Would like to see how a peak Hulk would stack up to a peak Sid.

Current height is 6’2.75 Still a big guy.
Big ed said on 5/Jan/21
Hard t call he's exact height was taller than jake Roberts who most agree was 6'5 range looked in an around same height as tenta looked at least 1.5" shorter than sid maybe 2" so it is strange think in the 80s was 6'6 looked about 6'5.5" against warrior wm6 if he was 6'2. Looks about 6'5 against sid wm8 if he was close t 6'7. I believe andre was about 6'11.5" at wm3 and was about 5.5" taller than Hogan andre lost height i do believe he's peak a shade over 7ft but again very hard to call he's height he never stood up straight even in the 70s andre was hunched so hogan peak I'd say close to 6'6 nowadays down around 6'3 maybe shorter looked slightly taller about an inch or so taller than rock wm18 so close to 6'4 2002 looked a shade taller than Brock lesnar a few years ago he's around 6'2
Harry Sachs said on 4/Jan/21
It is hilarious how people at home try to inflate everything about these people on TV. From their talent and their important to their height.

Hulk Hogan was never 6'6 at any time of his life. Here is a picture of Sid Vicious and Hulk Hogan from the early 90's. Sid claims to be 6'6 peak and clearly Hulk Hogan was no where close to being that height. Click Here

I know what some people will type. But I saw a picture of Hulk Hogan and some other guy who said he was 6'6 and they were the same height. Then clearly the other guy wasn't 6'6.

Here is a video of the 6'3 George Foreman and Hogan in the early 90's. The angle isn't the best but it is what it is. Click Here

Hogan peak was maybe 6'4 or slightly above it.

Editor Rob
yeah he could be as short as 5ft 11
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@James B: likely a result of his Cowboy boots. Tiny Lister said he and Hulk were the same height. My guess is Hulk likely just had a minimal advantage which was undetectable so maybe 6’5 1/4-3/8 or Tiny may have been 6’5-6’5 1/8 range. I’d say 6’5 for Lister and 6’5.25 for Hogan. But Hogan would be 6’6 out of bed in his prime easily

6’5.5” peak is very possible, and 6’3” now. 6’2.75” is possible too.
Soace said on 1/Jan/21
His peak I doubt was over 6’5”.

He looks 6’2.75” today
James B 172cm said on 23/Dec/20
he gave a taller impression than 6'5 guys like wade barrett peak so I'd say he was not far of 6'6
Gman42 said on 20/Dec/20
I'll go with 6'5.25 for peak Hogan - in my mind there are a lot of questions about what footwear he had on in many of these pictures. Besides frequently wearing cowboy boots, I suspect he had lifts in some of the other footwear he wore back in the day. It makes sense as it helped to enhance the larger than life aura he had going.
Mma Eric said on 19/Dec/20
I would say fresh out of Ben 6’6.5 peak, maybe even 6’7. . Today 6’4 if he stands completely straight which he rarely does.

Oops I meant Roddy Piper I guess autocorrect screwed me over
Vegas' said on 18/Dec/20
The wrestling license details are kayfabe, Piper has Glasgow as birthplace when in fact he was born in Saskatoon, Canada.
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 18/Dec/20
@Gracelio if you look it’s using the Kayfabe height and weight. I know Roddenberry Piper was billed 6’2 230
Undertaker Frank said on 17/Dec/20
Roddy was never 6ft 2 & I dont Believe Jessie was ever 6ft 4 too be Honest
Editor Rob
Roddy was rounding up from his 6ft 1.5 claim, which he's said a couple of times in the past.

Soda machine said on 5/Dec/20
6-5 peak. Now 6-2.5.
Canson said on 28/Nov/20
@Vincent: agreed. Chance at 6’5-6’5.25 but an even greater chance of 6’5.25-.5 or .25 to 3/8 imho. Looking more I see him as a proper strong 6’5 peak. He probably would’ve had at least an inch on me and at least half on you
Vincent Caleb said on 27/Nov/20
No way he is under 6’5”. He could really be 6’5.5”.
Canson said on 27/Nov/20
@Duhon: no he definitely wasn’t under 6’5” in his peak but he wasn’t 6’8 9/16”. He looks what the common guess is for him (6’5.25-.5 range) next to Trump. I would go with a 6’5.5 listing for his peak height being most agree here that he didn’t look 6’6 but most feel he was a strong 6’5 guy. That’s sort of the avg of the two
Duhon said on 26/Nov/20
Can't see footwear in that photo but if Trump was at his peak height of 6'2" there, I can't see how Hogan can be below 6'5" and he looks somewhat over that in the photo. 6'4" Eric Trump stands at about the same height advantage next to his dad who has shrunk a couple inches by this point from his peak. Click Here
Vincent Caleb said on 26/Nov/20
He struggles to look much over 6’5” there. Overall I think 6’5.25” Bare minimum. Tall dude, but the chance of him being 6’8/6’9” is about as likely as Bigfoot walking on the moon in a Speedo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/20
Rob, how arguable is 6ft5½ peak?
Canson said on 26/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy: the Average guess has dropped on this page too
Canson said on 25/Nov/20
@Vegas and J2Frenzy: here’s an better picture of him with Trump and Andre.

Click Here

Using a poor picture = tailoring to fit narrative

It’s just funny that you have someone who has been off this site for about 10 days that only went at people (who shall remain nameless but J2 knows who I’m talking about) that only attacked anyone who estimated “below 6’5.75” for Hogan and made an excuse about this particular poster or anyone who estimates above Rob saying “I don’t take it seriously”.
Vegas' said on 25/Nov/20
Hogan 6'8 9/16th in 1988 (when that photo with Trump and Andre was taken) is laughable.

Mr T was ~5'10 and Hogan has an approximate 1 inch footwear advantage Click Here

Hogan is shorter there next to T than a 6'7 guy I know next to people who are 5'10...
Canson said on 24/Nov/20
I think 6’5.5 is the catch all. Much better than 6’6 but it’s very much arguable he was a hair over 6’5”
J2Frenzy said on 24/Nov/20
@Henry he’s barely at the nose of 6’11 Andre and Dre’s head is almost certainly a foot. Barely puts him at 6’5
Henry said on 23/Nov/20
Here's the photo of the Hulkster giving the appearance of being a 7 footer even though he's was really 6'8 9/16" barefoot mid day.
Click Here
The Hulkster more than doubled the height difference between Beltzer and Howard Stern and almost doubled the height difference between Trump and Howard Stern.
RP said on 23/Nov/20
@ Canson,
I can totally buy an afternoon 6’1.5” Dumars. If his old listed Barefoot height of 6’2” was a morning measurement. That absolutely would then make sense. I bet that was the case. Dumars was likely a strong 6’2” morning & 6’1.5”-ish afternoon-evening. Isiah’s 6’0” measurement, was also likely a morning measurement.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: I think 6’5:5 may be a fair compromise for Hogan’s peak especially being Sid was clearly taller (6’6.25)
Big King said on 22/Nov/20
It is really interesting to note that both, Hulk Hogan and David Prowse who played Darth Vader stood around 6'6" in their younger days. Both were having surgeries and went down to about 6'3" and both claimed their height one time as 6'7" before their surgeries. Check out the page of David Prowse here on CelebHeights. He has actually the same story as Hogan.
borat1 said on 22/Nov/20
Hey @rob!! Here are some photographs which show his height decline
Before: Click Here
After his surgery:Click Here
In both pictures Hogan is standing straight and difference is clearly visible.
Duhon said on 21/Nov/20
How much height did these two guys lose respectively from their primes? Click Here
Editor Rob
if anybody ever finds the advert Hogan did with Ferrigno, it would be interesting as they might be nearer peak height...

Hogan I do think has lost nearer 3 and Ferrigno maybe a bit over 1 nowadays.
Big King said on 21/Nov/20
Wrestlers are known for exaggerate their heights very often, especially when it comes to WWE informations. I think that Hogan stood 6'5.5" in his younger days and 6'3" nowadays.
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
@RP: Dumars according to a guy on FB who was friends with him was about 6’1.5”. They had a pic together and looked identical. He also made a reference to him not being what he was listed but him being about his own height. That’s believeable Isiah I would give 5’11.5-6’ and Rodman up to what Rob listed him. Isiah likely rounded up to 6’0”. But I doubt Rodman has really lost any height until we’ll after he retired. He wasn’t as tall as Pippen was. But sub 6’6 he isn’t even that today. He was over 6’6 peak
borat1 said on 18/Nov/20
Hey @rob.Just say a recent photo of hulk hogan with his wife jennifer who's 5'7-8 at max and she's almost matching his height whereas earlier he used to tower over her even in heels. Do you reckon he might be in 6'2 range presently ??
Editor Rob
well sometimes with loose posture or wobbly (bent knees) I'm sure Hogan has looked 6ft 2 recently.
Canson said on 18/Nov/20
@Vincent: I concur with Christian

@Vegas: yea I can’t see a peak Rodman under 6’6”. I would give him over 6’6 flat to tell you the truth
RP said on 18/Nov/20
@ Vegas, peak Isiah was 6’0” barefoot & 6’1” in 1980’s sneakers. Joe Dumars was a hair over 6’3” in 1980’s sneakers & 6’2” to 6’2.25” barefoot. Peak Rodman was 6’6.75” barefoot. And was 6’7.75” to 6’8” in sneakers. Your photo proves it. Dennis due to his lifestyle was likely down to 6’6.5” barefoot by the mid 1990’s. The dude went an entire decade averaging only 3-4 hrs of sleep per night.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Nov/20
191 is a very good and reasonable estimate for Boris. In fact, most posters here don't even think he's the full legit 6'4". As far as I've seen, 6'3.5" seems to be a popular estimate for him.
FriedChicken said on 17/Nov/20
They're probably still gonna dismiss that evidence by pulling the lift card.
Canson said on 17/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: if talking about No Holds Barred, Tiny looks taller but it’s likely due to altered footwear. However, Hogan may have begun to lose height so it’s no guarantee he’s still 6’5 the year that was made (late 80s).
Editor Rob
yeah I know Tiny had custom boots for that film.
Vegas' said on 17/Nov/20
Rodman less than 6'6. Then how tall was Isiah Thomas? Click Here
Vincent Caleb said on 17/Nov/20
@Christian 6’5 3/8”:
Yeah have Boris at more 191 cm then 193. You should look at Winston James Francis’s page, since he looks nowhere near 6’11”. Quinton Aaron might be the one I disagree with the most. But still, nowhere near 3 inches. That is just ridiculous.
Canson said on 16/Nov/20
Here is Hogan with Andre and Donald Trump (also in his prime)

Hogan next to a guy who was 6’2ish in his prime wouldn’t be 6’3”.

Even if Trump were 6’1.75, Hogan wouldn’t be under 6’5” and if Trump were over 6’2 then, Hogan would be about 6’5 1/2”.

Here is Hogan with 6’6.5 listed Dennis Rodman. Rodman was definitely not under 6’6” in his prime. I’ve mentioned it before that he was taller than Trace Adkins and if you see him with Ron Harper (who was slightly taller than Jordan) and David Robinson (Christian mentioned that a friend of his met him and in the picture looked 6’11-6’11.5 with his friend), Rodman isn’t less than 6’6”. Odds are better he was slightly over 6’6 even in the afternoon. Maybe not quite 6’6.5 but I can’t see under 199 or 6’6.25 at a low.

Also next to Rodman is 6’8” (barefoot) by his own admission, Karl Malone. Malone is not over 2” taller than him

Click Here

It’s more than clear than Hogan shrunk from his peak just until 1998 when that was taken. And if we remember correctly, he had vertebrae removed which will naturally reduce the height of the spine

So he surely wasn’t 6’3” in his prime. He did in fact lose a considerable amount of height. Do I believe he’s lost as much as Rob implies with the peak and current? No. But I do believe he’s lost at least 1.75” if not maybe up to about 2.5”? Yes and That wide a range is only possible because of the variation in peak and current (imho)

Peak: 6’5-6’5.5 range
Current: I will say that there is a chance he could be as high as 6’3.25” still (6’4 out of bed) but there’s an equal chance that he’s 6’3 flat and 6’3.75 out of bed (his listing). And a chance that he’s even 6’3.5 out of bed and 6’2.75 afternoon height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Nov/20
Agreed 100%. Rob's a very good height guesser, and I'm not saying this because he's the editor. He's been doing this for at least over 16 years now, maybe even longer. If he adds a listing, chances are that it wouldn't be further than 1" from the actual celeb's height. The vast majority of his listings, I'd agree within 1/2" or 3/4" at worst, but there are a few exceptions like Boris Kodjoe (listed 6'4" but I have 6'3"), Shawne Merriman (especially when he was listed at a ridiculous 6'4" despite being measured 6'2 3/8"), and like you said, Lindsay Hayward (back when she was listed 6'9" peak and 6'8.25" current) and Quinton Aaron (listed 6'8" but I have 6'6.5"), and maybe Charlotte Flair (listed 5'9" but I have at 5'8"). Those are probably the only celebs whom I thought Rob listed over an inch too high.
Pdoggy said on 16/Nov/20
Just checking to make sure I am not missing something. We determine height when someone is standing straight at their peak and to THE TOP OF THEIR HEAD!!

Vincent Caleb said on 16/Nov/20
There is no way Rob would be over estimating Hogan by 3 inches. I don’t always agree with his estimates, but with the amount of time he has spent researching and years he has dedicated to finding out the true estimates, there is just now way. I have only disagreed with him for over 1 inch is on Lindsay Kay Hayward, Quinton Aaron, and Winston James Francis. And even then it was barely over an inch. 3 whole inches though? No way.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy: interesting! Yea I remember you mentioning that now that you say it
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
@Canson the book I mentioned on Kevin Nash’s page details the steroid scandals, and Hulk Hogan actually got fired because he was the biggest name involved. That same book calls Hogan (in his prime) “a six-foot-five gentle giant of a man with twenty-two inch arms and a comic book cleft chin”
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy and Vincent: Agreed! He did use roids. I remember in that era Everyone did though. Ultimate Warrior (RIP) really really used them
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
@Vincent I don’t know how to just bulk in muscle because that kinda just happened as I grew. BTW I checked Dennis’s listing on this site and if it’s accurate the Hogan looks 6’5, but it’s not impossible he’d lost his first half inch by then
Vincent Caleb said on 14/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy: I thought definitely more than an inch since Dennis was dropping posture, but hogan wasn’t even at his peak. Also, this is unrelated, but I was just wondering what you thought the best Calorie increase would be for me to do a bulk if I am eating 2750 calories currently? I have a hard time putting on a lot of muscle on my frame, and I really don’t know how much to increase my calories by.
J2Frenzy said on 14/Nov/20
Hogan’s a very tall, former steroid abuser, is 67 years old, wrestled for 30+ years and was 300 pounds at his peak. He’s definitely lost a bit
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb: he has called several people trolls and said other here and it makes no sense. Then he will call someone a downgrader on a page such as Yao’s or Lebron’s when he’s making them taller than Rob lists them, then turn right around and call them a fanboy on the pages where he guesses someone 2-3” shorter than Rob lists them. And he calls the them fanboys even when they guess the celeb shorter than Rob lists him but taller than he does such as Hulk Hogan where virtually nobody here guesses him to be a full 6’6”. Most of us are set on 6’5 to 6’5.5 range yet he’s making the egregiously low guess of 6’3”. It’s very inconsistent and very silly being he’s calling someone who guesses against what he estimates, (not what Rob lists them) as trolls. I really don’t see how you can call someone a fanboy when they estimate below Rob and a downgrader when they guess around Rob’s listings for Yao and Lebron.
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: yea his height is nearer 6’3” today but despite the peak height being debatable it surely wasn’t anything higher than what you have him listed here. The debate really is anywhere in the 6’5-6’6 range being Undertaker was 6’7 and taller Sid was 6’6 and still taller
J2Frenzy said on 11/Nov/20
@Henry so you’re saying Hogan’s peak was 6’8.5+. If that’s the case Andre must’ve been 7’2 at least. See, it doesn’t add up
Henry said on 11/Nov/20
Rob, The Hulkster is looking extremely tall next to Mick Foley. He has better posture than usual(though his knees are still bent) and is looking 6'4" barefoot. Mick Foley is closer to the camera and has a huge camera angle advantage.
Click Here
I think it may be time for a height upgrade.
Here's Mick Foley next to peak height over 6'5.25" barefoot Howard Stern.

The Hulkster's peak barefoot mid day height was at least 6'8 9/16th" barefoot but he can give the appearance of a 7 footer in cowboy boots with certain camera angles.
Editor Rob
a couple of those links didn't seem to work, but today from all I've seen Hulk is near 6ft 3 than 4. His peak height is still debatable.

However how many wrestlers in the 70's were underbilled.

Hogan was billed 6ft 6 when he started out.
J2Frenzy said on 9/Nov/20
Surely everyone else was wearing shoes too right?
miko said on 9/Nov/20
The tallest Hogan likely ever attained would have been early in the day in cowboy boots.

If he was 6'6 range fresh out of bed (6'5 range in the day) then close to 6'8 in cowboy boots may have been possible.

I still think that anywhere in the 6'4.75 to 6'5.5 range is arguable for his peak daytime height.

After you watch sid and hogan in 1995, sid looked about 2 inch on Him and hogan wasn’t that old... do you really think hogan was as tall as 6ft6 in his peak ?
Editor Rob
I don't believe there really was a full 2 inches, but yeah at times it definitely could seem that way! However I think Sid's posture was at times great, whilst Hogan's wasn't quite as good.
JD1996 said on 30/Oct/20
Very close to 6’6” peak I would say he was 197 range.
Canson said on 29/Oct/20
I think 6’5.5” may be the “catch all” for his peak height at least. Even if he’s 6’5.25” at a low he would be 6’5.5” After about 2-3 hours or just under it around lunch (6’5 3/8”). Of course, the site standard is 5 hours out of bed or an afternoon low, (6’5 3/8) or (6’5.25) but since Rob believes he’s 6’6”, 6’5.5” is a bit closer to that and would be a fair compromise for everyone. A 6’5.5” guy claiming 6’6.5 would just mean in shoes although Caron Butler measured 6’5.25, also claimed 6’6/6’7”. He measured 6’6.5 in shoes of course b-ball shoes. So a 6’5.5 guy claiming 6’6” isn’t bad but he also claimed 6’5 and 6’7” before in his prime

So It’s hard to see a solid 6’6” peak height but 6’5.5” isn’t as hard to see. Anything too much under 6’5” (I wouldn’t be completely surprised if he were maybe 195cm but not likely) can safely be ruled out and anything over 6’5.5 (6’6” is a stretch) can be ruled out. 6’5-6’6” range should be the sweet spot being he would measure 6’6 out of bed with ease
David Banner said on 29/Oct/20
You’re right @Canson
He’s probably under 6’2” barefoot
Canson said on 29/Oct/20
Hogan isn’t 6’2 even today
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Oct/20
Canson is probably the furthest thing from a troll here. The term "troll" has to be the most overused insult in the history of the Internet. Not everyone you disagree or have issues with is a troll.

recapa said on 26/Oct/20
how tall do you think his son is rob
Canson said on 26/Oct/20
Hogan was 20 years past his peak when he met him
Canson said on 26/Oct/20
@Vincent Celeb: I agree with your peak estimate. His current though looks a solid 6’3 imho but a weak 6’3 is a reasonable guess with his posture. He can look weak 6’3 even a strong 6’3 when he stands straight
Canson said on 25/Oct/20
@Borat1 and Editor Rob: Alan32080 claimed he looked a bit over 6’3 in person as did another poster. Both mentioned 6’3.5 but Alan agreed with 6’3.25 possibly being his afternoon height. I’ve long maintained that he has poor posture and can look sub 6’3 a lot but he could be one that surprises us and measures over 6’3”. My guess for his current is 6’2.75-6’3.25. But more than likely at least 6’3 if he stands straight. I still think his peak is a bit over listed and that he was more in the 6’5-6’5.5 range as opposed to 6’6”. 6’5.5 would be a good start for him
Canson said on 25/Oct/20
@Fried Chicken: 6’5.5” is arguable for his peak. That would be a very reasonable listing for his peak here especially since Rob believes 6’6”. The vast majority are of the opinion of 6’5.25” so 6’5.5 would be something a 6’5.25” guy would measure earlier in the day. To me 6’5.5” is actually the best listing since it’s tough to pinpoint when he began to lose his height
Vincent Caleb said on 24/Oct/20
His peak height could be similar to Howard Stern at 6’5.25-5”. Current is a weak 6’3”, or 6’2.75”
FriedChicken said on 24/Oct/20
Yeah peak Hogan is 6'5 1/2 at least. I don't know why it's so hard to believe maasive height loss. My grandfather used to be nearly as tall as my old 6'4" 1/4" cousin. Now i believe he's actually down to 6'2 1/2. He's been in several car accidents, is old, overweight, and had multiple back surgeries.

If 6 ft 6 is the most you'd give peak Hogan then 6'5 3/4 would be a good start. In that 6'5.5 - 6'6 flat range. In the middle just to be close.

I believe he would've falled under 6'6" afternoon/lunchtime (6'5 1/2 ot 6'5 3/4) but cleared it first thing in the morning.

Considering Hogan is slouching here, it would be maximum 4” if he stood straight.

But of course, Lebron is really 6’8.5” or 6’9” which some think these days, so it means Hulk Hogan has fared even better than we thought in his older age (despite the surgeries) and hasn’t lost as much height as we think! He is still around 6’5” today 😂 😂 😂

Rob needs to get on the stick and upgrade him back to his rightful height before he faces Consequences and repercussions!!!! 😂 😂 😂
