Sotiris, great pics of Matt Morgan. He legit only looks 6’7-1/2” MAX (could even argue 6’7” flat) in all those photos. Especially when comparing him with 6’6” to 6’6-1/2” Ali Baba! My thoughts...a peak & at his prime Matt Morgan was 6’7-3/4” afternoon barefoot (6’8” morning) and was 6’9” in normal footwear...6’9-1/2” in wrestling boots = pro wrestling billing of 6’10” plus.

Morgan's billed height is 6'10" and Rob has him at 6'8.5" I seriously doubt this guy is over 6'7". Also, why would the WWE only bill him at only 1.5" taller, as opposed to 6'3" Terry Gordy getting billed as 6'6", or 6'5" David Von Erich getting billed as 6'8". It makes more sense for a 6'7" guy to get billed 3" more, not 1.5". Seriously.

@RP I doubt he's more than 6'5" barefoot. If I'm not mistaken, in an interview Jacques said his son met Kane and they were practically the same height...

@Henry: I’d be careful critiquing other people and how they assess height etc. do you realize you just said Hogan was 6’9” out of bed at one point in his life? He was never that tall. Undertaker was never even 6’9 out of bed barefoot and he was taller than Hogan. Taker was likely 6’8 out of bed barefoot and a peak Hogan was 6’6 out of bed max and 6’5 range throughout the day. Either way it doesn’t matter what he was out of bed as that isn’t his true height. Your chiropractor being a chiropractor doesn’t mean he is right especially if he didn’t measure Hogan himself
Canson said on 8/Feb/19
@Sotiris: agree on Ford. Probably same height as Baron Corbin max. Corbin would be a full 6’6 if he measures 6’6.5 in the morning at a combine
Henry said on 8/Feb/19
Sotiris Gravas, LMFAO, do you even understand anything about perspective and camera angles? Hogan is slouching big time and his knees are bent.
I have also talked to my
chiropractor many times about this.
He said that Hogan started losing height by very small fractions of a millimeter when he first started doing leg drops.
He said that Hogan's peak height was in the late 1970s. Even by the mid 1980s, Hogan had height loss that was measurable.
HOGAN ALWAYS SLOUCHES, HAS A VERY WIDE STANCE, AND BENDS HIS KNEED. Hogan was also all coked out awake for 40 or 50 hours reducing his height a lot from his peak morning height after a solid 10 hours of sleep. Hogan was a minimum 6'9" barefoot after a good 13 hours of sleep before he ever started wrestling.
Canson said on 8/Feb/19
@62B: I would be far more likely to agree with your estimate than 6’7”. I only used the 6’6” saying that I highly doubt a celeb is going to be listed taller than Rob has them. And it’s for the most part true across this site. If anything, most of these celebs are slightly overlisted versus underlisted. Some of the posts that I see here are very silly to be honest. And for comparison, Taker is listed peak 6’7.5. I would say the difference between the two may be 2” solid and that Taker may have been something like 6’7.25 peak and Hulk 6’5.25 peak both at lows. I don’t rule out 6’5.5 for Hulk but don’t rule out 6’5” either. I doubt he was ever more than 6’5.5 at a low however and I doubt he would even be that high in the afternoon

Hogan is either 6'2" or 6'2.5" now... not 6'3". My 2 cents. Hogan was NEVER Aaron Reed's height; only in his dreams and the dreams of wistful fanboys the world over.

At my heaviest, I was Aaron Reed's weight of 305 lbs, but let's just say it wasn't all muscle. Far from it...

P.S. There's a chance Ford is 6'5.5".

@RONSTER. My experience with Hogan was back in 1980. He stopped right in front of us on his way to the ring. He was minimally taller than my 6'4" Grandfather. My best guess is that Hulk had about 1" on my Grandfather. Certainly not 3". And you never know if Hogan had any kind of lift in his boots.
62B said on 7/Feb/19
@Canson. lately I keep remembering a conversation I had with my army roommate back in the late 80's. My friend had been up close to Hogan several times and said Hogan was pretty much right in-between my height of just over 6'3" and our other room mate who was 6'6". If peak Hogan was an inch and a half taller than me, that would put him 6'4 3/4 ". I do think 6'5" to 6'5 1/4" are possibilities, but I am starting to back off the idea Hogan was ever 6'5.5" unless it was right out of bed
Canson said on 6/Feb/19
Hogan was 1.5-2” shorter than taker in his prime. If Taker was really 6’7.5 like Rob listed him it would mean Hulk was no more than 6’6” or strong 6’5 range low end. He was never 6’7”

Learn to read. I said my friend that DID meet and have his picture taken with HHH thought he was under 6'. I said he is likely not much taller than 6'. He might be 6'1" at best

RONSTER said on 5/Feb/19
Henry, I have working eyes and no bias so of course I see what is plainly there and indisputable in those pictures that Hogan was minimal 6’7” barefoot back then. But it’s futile, none of the posters in here will accept the truth, they don’t want to accept it so instead they will continue to use altered photos, or ones with bad angles and posture to try and convince us all he was shorter than he actually was. I have said it before, I saw him up close in 1986 and he was 6’9” in his boots easily, and he was still well over 6’4” when I met him in 2014.
The photos of Hogan with people of known height in level floor, same footwear and posture always prove he was as tall as he said.
And he was “billed” at 6’8”-9” throughout his WWF run in the 80’s.
Canson said on 5/Feb/19
I know that Alan32080 mentioned before that he himself didn’t lose height very quickly throughout the day but did later. With his estimate as of the most recent interaction with him he had Hogan as probably half inch taller than he was tops. So if Alan dips to 6’2.67-6’2.75 at a low it would make Hogan around 6’3-6’3.25. Rob’s listing is probably fair as I doubt he’s less than 6’3” from what I’ve seen provided he stands straight. But I doubt over 6’3 1/8 or 6’3 1/4 and certainly not over 6’3 at an extreme low.

His peak was likely 6’5-6’5.5. I don’t rule out something like 196.5 at a low but I think once we cross that mark it looks almost unrealistic. 6’5.5 is of course close to that but often times he looked more 6’5 range than 6’6 which is not how a guy measuring that tall who wore boots would look. If Lister is 6’5” or even a tiny hair over like 6’5 1/8 he wouldn’t have noticed a difference if Hogan were 1/4” taller than him. Still wide range given, Meaning 6’5.75-6’6.5 out of bed 6’5-6’5.5 afternoon height. 6’6/6’5.25 looks really good
Canson said on 5/Feb/19
@JT and Sotiris: a peak Dr J was likely 6’5.5. He had Jordan by an inch at his peak. Jordan likely measures 6’5 morning 6’4.5 afternoon. I knew a friend of mine is probably a solid 6’4” maybe as tall as me at 6’4.25 tops. He met Dr J and thought it was a 2” difference back in the 80s and that he was 6’6”. In the pic it’s harder to tell but given footwear may have played a role as it did appear Dr J had thicker footwear slightly and that it wasn’t quite 2” I could arrive at something like peak 6’5.5. While I don’t rule out what Sotiris said completely 6’4 seems low. I would say he’s still near 6’5” today

Buster Douglas and Richard Beltzer both have footwear advantages and yet The Hulkster looks at least 6'9" in these photos. A 6'5" man could never ever look this tall. People would have to reduce Beltzer and Douglas' height at least 4" from their actual barefoot height to make their laughable 6'5" peak barefoot Hulk Hogan fantasy justifiable in their own mind.

@RP: you’re estimate is a lot more believable than 6’9”. Magic would measure 6’7.5 at some point in the day in his prime but 6’7.25 is believable at a low. But there are some things and some posters that are hard to take seriously on this site

_______________________________-

Personally I don't think HHH is under 6', but he probably isn't much over. I think HHH regularly wears shoes or boots that give him a boost. Most likely my friend saw him when he was wearing more normal footwear and had the expectation of seeing a 6'3"- 6'4" HHH and was probably taken off guard when he saw that he was inches shorter than me.

Pat Riley said that Magic Johnson was 6’8-1/2” with his sneakers on & only about 6’7-1/2” in his socks, once during an interview back in the early 1990’s. Seems about spot on for a young peak Magic. Current & near 60 old Magic is likely now 6’7” flat barefoot.
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
@Phenom89: yea peak I would say maybe 1.5-2” difference between the two. So Taker maybe 6’7.25 peak and Hulk 6’5-6’5.5 peak. Today Hulk still looks 6’3 range while Taker 6’6ish. So no higher than 3” but likely something like 2.5-3” difference between them now is possible

Magic Johnson is not a barefoot 6’9”. Very rarely will a basketball player be listed at their barefoot height. Magic isn’t as tall as Larry Bird. An honest coworker of mine met Magic and said he’s 6’7” as well

@JT That Tony Atlas/Hogan pic blew my mind. Thanks for posting that.

@viper I saw Edge at my gym back in '97. What freaked me out was how he was doing single-arm dumbbell curls w/ only 15 lbs and he was actually using a spotter. Maybe he had an injury or something. But that always stood out in my mind. Agreed, 6'2".

@tree I don't wanna disagree w/ you, but the problem is, Fred Ottman has always claimed 6'3" and is still 6'3". (If I'm wrong, can somebody let me know...) He was billed as 6'3" and Google has him at 6'3" (rhymes w/ tree).

@Sotiris: doesn’t surprise me. Hulk was 6’5” range peak and 6’3 today. He was listed similar to how some 6’7” pro basketball players are listed (that are sometimes in reality as low as 6’5 flat barefoot or even 6’4.5 at lows). Hulk could’ve been 6’5-6’5.5 meaning maybe he could get 6’6 in the morning straight out of bed and still get 6’5 1/2 at a physical 2-3 hours out of bed. Meaning 6’5.25 at a low. He would easily be 6’6.5 in a regular shoe at that stage or 6’6.75 with regular boots or Jordan’s at that stage. But I don’t rule out just a solid 6’5” at a low and 6’5.75 out of bed. I think the proof is in the boots he used to wear and that’s how he got the 6’7” listing and claim. From what I recall he was sane as Tiny Lister and Lister said that himself. The same can possibly mean Hulk was 1/4” taller at 6’5.25 to Lister’s 6’5 but surely not a barefoot 6’7” or even 6’6 in my opinion
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Not sure what’s up with the pics. But with Magic Dr J looks smaller than he should. I find hard to believe a guy who was near 6’6 or at worst enough over 6’5 had lost that much. That just goes to show that in some pics one can look taller or shorter one moment to the next. I saw a pic of someone who I could almost reliably guess as around 6’4 (worst 6’3.75 prob) next to a friend of mine who is 6’3”. Dr J had close to 2” peak on his friend. Worst case he was 6’5.5 like they said he was. If he’s 6’4 today I’d be surprised because he had an inch on Barkley

@Phenom89: you’re saying Hogan was never 6’5? Or someone else. Hogan was a peak 6’5 if not a bit over the mark. 6’5.5 at a low may be a lot but he would likely clear close to 6’6” out of bed if not bang on 6’6
Phenom89 said on 30/Jan/19
@tree

Undertaker was maybe...maybe a hair over 6'7 barefoot at his peak, in my opinion.
If hogan was not 6'4.5 he was max half inch more. 6'5" because there are 2" minimum between them.

6'7 is ridiculous as 6'6.5.
6'6 too much.
If someone continue to look at André-Hogan staredown thinking that André was 7'2 ,7'0 or 6'11 its useless keep guessing.
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
@62B: yep and Alan32080 said Hogan was slightly taller than he was. I’m thinking he is possibly slightly taller but Alan went with a height earlier in the day slightly rounded up. He mentioned he’s weak 6’3 at a low meaning Hogan was probably Max 6’3.25 based on the estimation. Only because we go by an afternoon height on this site. I think Rob’s listing for him is ok because he’s likely closer to 6’3 than 6’4”. Best case could be the 6’3.25 absolute worst case he could dip a hair under the 6’3” mark like 6’2 7/8 maybe. I guarantee if he stood straight that he’s taller than Joey

Guys for me this man was never close to 6'6
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Rising: I agree with you and Viper. I also posted his video of Tyson asking him his height below in response to Sotiris. If one player is overlisted the other likely is meaning Doc Gooden is likely 6’2” barefoot
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Henry: he would stack up well with a 6’5 1/2” guy. Dr J was 6’5 1/2” at his peak barefoot. The 6’7” is his listed height in sneaks and rounded up
Pdoggy said on 25/Jan/19
Hogan and Tenta wrestled and were pictured together with Hogan slightly taller. Not sure how anyone can say Tenta was taller. I'll look for pics of them together.

Full picture of a 32 year old Hulk in cowboy boots and a 57 year old George Peppard: Click Here I believe Peppard was still a full 6'0" and he's standing straighter, but Hulk has a camera advantage. For arguments sake, we'll say those things cancel each other, but Peppard reaches Hogan's eyes so even with Hogan tilting his head down slightly, that's what? 5.5"?

viper is right about Strawberry. I posted his 6'5" claim and booking sheet a while back on Tom Selleck's page. @RP: Rob has said his listings should be thought of as a measurement around lunchtime or noon.
JT said on 23/Jan/19
Tenta measured 198 cm. for sumo Click Here The article also says 6'5 3/4" so the 198 cm. figure might be a round up. There's no indication what time of the day he was measured. Tenta was also referred to as 6'6" when he wrestled in college at LSU.

With a footwear disadvantage, Tenta was still taller than Hogan, who was a little taller than Ottman, who looked around 6’4”. Like Taker, Tenta had a very long forehead (and probably around 11 inch overall head length) Click Here which made him look a little shorter than he was. Tenta was also around 2 inches taller than ~ 6’4” Big Boss Man.
viper said on 22/Jan/19
Gooden's gigantic weight gain then huge weight loss was so strange.
viper said on 22/Jan/19
Strawberry said 6-5 to Mike Tyson back in 1986 when he was listed at 6-6.

Strawberry was listed at 6-5 when he was arrested.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Jan/19
@Henry

Tenta's measurement was most likely earlier in the day.
Pdoggy said on 21/Jan/19
Hogan had about a half inch on Tenta. Who was just under 6'6.
Canson said on 21/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Tyson is 5’10” in person and if you see with he and Strawberry that’s about how he would look next to a 6’5 guy. Strawberry likely even had a footwear advantage but the Canada angle isn’t perfect either
Canson said on 21/Jan/19
@Henry: it is not widely used in the US. They go with feet an inches. And 198 cm just means he was measured at or near 6’6” at some point in the day. Like I mentioned nobody is that precise with that. Maybe soccer but that’s it. Any other 198cm athlete would just be listed 198 despite over or under. We also don’t know if that’s even barefoot for Tenta but I imagine it is. In addition what you said about GB of World Records is not accurate. They would take 3 measurements 8 hours apart. So that said if he had a 6’6” measurement or near it in the morning, his other two wouldn’t be that high. And Rob doesn’t base it off that and neither does anyone else here as height loss is accelerated in your first hour you’re awake. Rob has said that a good gauge is 5-7 hours after being awake. I’ve seen 7-8 hours by a doctor on the internet and 7-8 is your most consistent of the day as it doesn’t go any lower than that usually. Tenta could be close to 6’6” or even 6’6” flat at a low but could also be 6’5 1/2 if that’s an early morning measurement
RP said on 21/Jan/19
Henry is correct, when scientifically recording someone’s true barefoot height, as The Guinness book of world records does...you take 3 measurements ...one early morning shortly out of bed...another early afternoon ...and a third late evening/night time. And you list the average of the three. I’ve heard conflicting views on here as to how we should list heights on this page. Some say to strictly go with the afternoon height ...others will say go with the absolute evening low height. While a few “like myself” say to use the three measurement average of (morning, noon & night). Rob, what are your thoughts ? When listing these peoples heights, are you going with a three measurement average type guess? Or a single afternoon to evening measurement guess? With some people it could mean as much as a 1/2” difference.
RP said on 21/Jan/19
@ Canson, True.
My opinion on big John Tenta is peak 6’5.75” & by the mid 90’s he was down to a flat 6’5”...maybe even 6’4.75” would be his true afternoon measured height.
berta said on 21/Jan/19
I know i have commented here that i think he is overlisted and coudl have been 196,5-197,5 range peak but looking at videos from when he was very young and beside muhammed ali i think he really could have been 198
Canson said on 20/Jan/19
@RP: I see what you’re saying. I’m thinking the 198cm could just mean that he was measured at or around 6’6” and rounded off. Maybe it was just under like you mentioned simply because measuring on an exact fraction like 1/8 or 1/4 or 1/2 or 1 is not very common. You could have two guys that are around a flat 6’4” yet one may measure 193.1 the other 193.3 and they wont be able to tell
Canson 194 said on 20/Jan/19
@Sotiris: when you’re that young it’s hard to accurately gauge the height of someone over 190cm to be honest. 6’5” at a low is not a common height. Even in my case I’m probably the 2nd or 3rd tallest person in my region with my corporation and I’m not even 6’5”. There’s on guy who works at the main office who is 6’7-6’7.5 I believe. He’s 3” taller than me. Not sure if he’s still there though. I’m “almost 194 cm” at a low. If anything I would be more in line with a 6’4” guy at a low which is why I just say 6’4 since only 1/4” over the mark
Canson said on 20/Jan/19
@Sotiris: I have Gooden as 6’2”. They maybe gave both an inch. Maybe he’s 6’2.5 and they rounded up. Strawberry said 6’5” in the video. But none of this is surprising. Baseball players are overlisted all the time
Henry said on 20/Jan/19
Canson, maybe you don't know this, but ALMOST THE WHOLE WORLD uses The Metric System. Tenta was measured at 198 cm barefoot which is 6'5.953".
His height is often mistranslated to a lower height. Tenta would have been listed Exactly at 6'6" barefoot by the Guinness Book at that time if they took morning, afternoon, and bighttime measurements and averaged them out.
Canson said on 19/Jan/19
@Sotiris: it was definitely 6’5”. Selleck is 1.5” shorter at 6’3.5
Sotiris Gravas said on 18/Jan/19
@Canson Interesting about Strawberry being 6'5" (though I can't tell if he mumbled 6'5.5", etc. after he said 6'5". Hmmm...) We actually walked by each other once, maybe back in '84. He seemed pretty tall when I was a kid.

In my opinion, excluding boots trick, peack hogan a hair under 6.5 and a weak 6.2 now. Accepting that he really lost so much. But no more than 6.5, 6.6 is wrong in my opinion and also 6'5.5 is. Compare him with Undertaker
Juby said on 17/Jan/19
In his WCW debut (Nov 1979), Hogan was estimated by one of the announcer "(...) must be about 6'5-6'6" - and they like overestimate wrestlers height. I don't think Hogan ever was over 6'5 barefoot.
Canson said on 16/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Strawberry wasnt 6’6”. He was 6’5” by his own admission. Go to 3:00 when Mike Tyson asks him. Tyson is 5’10”. Hogan may not have been in cowboy boots there as the difference isn’t that much between the two pictures. Hogan still looks somewhere around 6’3” today whether it be a full 6’3”, a hair over like 6’3.25 or maybe something slightly under the mark like 6’2 7/8 that isn’t noticeable. Imho he’s at least a full 6’3” however if not a hair over

Hulk Hogan was never 6’7” whether it was late 70s or 80s. That was his boot claim. The most he could’ve been is 6’5.5 but really he fits best as a strong 6’5 in the 6’5.25 area. 6’5.25 at a low will get someone listed at 6’7 all day in sports
RP said on 13/Jan/19
Wasn’t John Tenta a documented 6’5-7/8” from his Sumo Wrestling days in his mid-20’s ? So, still likely 6’5-1/2” to 6’5-3/4” by his mid 30’s in his initial WWF run?
Henry said on 13/Jan/19

John Amson said on 13/Jan/19
@Timson

Hulk already lost height by the late 80s. He may have been 6’7 in the late 70s/early 80s before he adopted the leg drop as his finisher. By the late 90s and early 2000s he hunched over all the time and I don’t think could have straightened his back if he tried. In the last couple of weeks he seems to be standing pretty straight and looked 6’3.5-6’3.75 on Raw. Spinal fusion surgery at least let’s him stand straight now.
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@John Samson: well said he rarely stands straight today. I think he’s a 6’3” range guy. Whether half or solid or quarter is debatable. I would also not rule out although a shot in the dark 6’2.75. I would really go with 6’3/6’3.25
Timson said on 12/Jan/19
Wasn’t much taller than 6-4.5 earthquake. 6.5-5. Peak. Bull claim of 6-8. Nowhere near.
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
6’5-6’5.25 in pro sports is good enough for a 6’7 listing once shoes are accounted for

Hogan was a legitimate 6ft6 flat foot back in the early 80s. He may have been 6ft7 in the late 70s. He wrestled Andre in Shea stadium in 1979 and even by the mid 80s he had a lot of wear and tear. If you check out videos of him wrestling in Japan in the early 80s he could actually wrestle a technical style very well but that’s not what the American audience wanted and by the late 80s injuries would prevent that anyway. He was 4-5 inches under Andre.

I’d say he is 6ft3.5 now. He hardly stands straight (it might not even be possible with his back and knees). At the Andre premiere he was photographed with Triple H (peak 6ft3 now 6ft1.5 to 6ft2 on a good day) and was 2 inches taller with similar footwear. If hogan could go back in time and pick a different finisher he may have been able to remain 6ft5 at this age. The leg drop was hell on his spine but it a boot to the face and leg drop is the coolest thing.

You may br right sotiris like i said i could've misjudged his height all i'm saying is he did appear taller than a few of my friends that claim to be 6'2" that's why i said roughly around 6'3" but the more i look at the photo of me and him i'm starting to think that yeah maybe he is 6'2"-6'2.5"
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
i think his poor posture can give off the impression he’s onpy 6’2”. That’s also the case with Undertaker as he gives off a 6’5 impression at times but is still near enough 6’6”. There is approximately a 2-3” difference with the two but because Hogan has lost more height than Taker has. The difference was only about 1.5-2” when they were in their respective primes
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Sotiris: the absolute lowest I could give Hogan is the 6’2.75 that Christian did which I don’t completely rule out. That’s not much under 6’3”. I do agree tho Seagal 6’3 today. But Lou I doubt is as tall as Hogan either. Lou doesn’t look over 6’2” or 6’2.25 today imho
Gulgo said on 5/Jan/19
Click Here definitely looking 6'6" here @ 8sec in. I got the chance to meet Hulk at the Fan Expo in Toronto a few years ago. From my estimate he looked to be 6'2.5" to 6'3" though his posture was poor while he posed for pictures I.e. bent knees. He was massive, you have meet him in person to appreciate his size.
Sotiris Gravas said on 5/Jan/19

Let's say Lou is 6'2", that means Hogan is the same height, as seen here next to Lou from 7 months ago, a pic I forgot to post... Click Here Hogan is closer to the camera and if he stood perfectly straight, he'd still be under 6'3", IMHO.

In all honesty, if Troy Aikman was only 6'3" in that commercial back then, not even 6'3.5", and Hogan was clearly shorter, there's no way Hogan can be 6'3" now... IMHO :)

Here's 6'3.5" The Hoff (not 6'4") with Lou (2017)... Click Here , Click Here Lou is shorter by at least 1". I'd be willing to give Hogan 6'2.25".




@DanTrojan If you're a 5'6" dude, it's kinda hard to tell a 6'2" guy from 6'3", 6'4", etc., when meeting them.
rawdshaq said on 5/Jan/19
Hulk Hogan was a legit 6' 7" back in the day. He was billed at 6' 8" and also higher in other businesses. If you think Hogan was anything under 6' 7" then Andre the Giant was only 6' 7" if Hulk Hogan is only 6' 3". Hulk Hogan was a 6' 7" 300lb monster back in the day, and like I said, is about 6' 4" or 6' 3" now.
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Sotiris: I’d put money that Hulk is taller than Lou. Dan Trojan is right Hulk isn’t 6’2. He is 6’3”
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Dan Trojan: I do think Lou has lost height however. And probably since rob met him. Doubt he was ever 6’4 but likely 6’3 range peak
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Dan trojan: you know my stance on some of the people Sotiris compares to even though I have a lot of respect for Sotiris. However he is right about Ferrigno. Ali Baba is a poster here and is 6’6” himself and stood next to Lou as did another poster or two and he was only 6’2” range. That’s how he looks in many cases. I know Ali esimtarsd 6’2-6’2.5 when he met him

I don't know what to say sotiris but either it's camera angles or those people are taller than you think because lou ferrigno is 6'3" i swear it those pictures aren't gonna change my mind i stood right by the guy i'm a short guy i'm only 5'6" and he had almost a fuĺl head on me
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
@Sotiris: he’s more than a flat 6’3” he would be 6’3 3/8” perhaps if the measurement of 6’3.75 he received since its early morning. Maybe even 6’3.25 but I’ll give him 6’3 3/8. And this is the same type of scenario as with Undertaker in that Hogan doesn’t stand straight. Alan32080 even said that when he met him if he stands straight he could possibly squeeze past 6’3” flat. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jameis is taller but not by that much. It would be a minimal non-noticeable difference. Even if Jameis were actually as tall as 6’3.75 it would put Hogan sub 6’3” which I highly doubt. That’s posture related there

@Sotiris: agreed but Hogan wasn’t at his peak at that stage when that pic was taken. I agree he wasn’t 6’6” maybe out of bed but he was definitely 6’5” range at his peak. As for Winston if he measured 6’3.75 at the combine he’s likely no more than a strong 6’3” guy. Considering we can’t see footwear in that pic and the angle isn’t great in the pic I would expect there to be some disparity. Winston may in fact be taller but wouldn’t surprise if he’s wearing cleats and has an advantage from that. I’d expect a maximum 1cm advantage with Hogan minimum 6’3” Winston 6’3 3/8 max unless he gained a fraction. But that was at Florida State more than likely so he wouldn’t have. Hogan at his angle is not advantaged by the camera

@RP: I think a peak Trump may be a legit 6’2 or at least gave that impression off. Here he is on Fresh Prince of Bel Air next to Will Smith and James Avery. He didn’t look but maybe 2-2.5” less than Avery and looked taller than Smith. At some points I got more of a 6’1.75” impression as well. I have Will as more solid 6’1”. Of course that was Trump at his peak. He’s 183-184 today

RP said on 24/Dec/18
Sotiris,
Peak Hogan was 4” taller than peak Trump. Now, factor in Hogan's 0.5” footwear advanstage. Makes peak Hogan 3.5” taller than a peak Trump. In your opinion, was a Peak Trump only 6’1” ? IMO peak Trump was 6’1.75” to 6’2” barefoot & 6’3” in dress shoes. Peak Hogan was barefoot 6’5.25” to 6’5.5” barefoot & 6’7” in cowboy boots.
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
Average guess is high for his peak. For current maybe ok. He could be up to 6’3.25 today still if he stands straight. I would determine aggregate height loss to be 2-2.25” from then until now

Sounds about right Click Here Hogan’s in cowboy boots with Robbins and Big Show and in b-ball shoes with shaq, who’s in sandals.
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Dec/18
Here's Hogan and Shaq... Click Here , Click Here , Click Here

Now compare that to Shaq and 6'6" Deontay Wilder... Click Here , Click Here


Now, does Hulk look as tall as Wilder...?

The answer to that is a resounding nope. Hogan was never 6'6", let alone the 6'7" he wants ppl to believe. The man lies more than contestants on the show "Survivor." I give him maybe 6'4.5" peak height.

Dan Trojan said on 23/Dec/18
True i think he gives off a taller impression because of how skinny he is
RP said on 23/Dec/18
Rob, in your opinion...who meausers taller mid-afternoon today, Hulk Hogan or Buster Douglas?
Editor Rob
Today, you might find that Hogan and Buster are quite similar, somewhere in 6ft 3 range. With Hulk, he might have looked shorter due to bad hips/knees, but still manages measurement in 6ft 3 -3.25 range.
rawdshaq said on 23/Dec/18
Hulk Hogan used to be 6' 7" actually but he lost some height after surgeries so he is around 6' 4" now.
Dan Trojan said on 22/Dec/18
Yeah that would've been nice too bad he passed away before I could meet him from what I heard he was a good guy a gentle giant
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Dan Trojan: I doubt Snoop is 6’4. Probably 6’3.5. He’s noticeably shorter than Kobe and looked 6’3.5 with Magic Johnson who is 6’7” not 6’7.5

Dan Trojan said on 19/Dec/18
I can't give an honest guess in him because it's hard to tell but one thing I do know is I met Lou Ferrigno and he was legitimately 6'3" and in pictures that I've seen with the 2 hogan in my opinion always looked slightly taller so I'd say 6'3".5 6'4" seems about right he also looked about the same height as Snoop Dogg
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
@Christian: I won’t completely rule that out either. But I doubt less. I think when Danimal and Rising both guessed 6’2 as well as Sotiris it was based on poor posture. I could go anywhere 6’3-6’3.25 range today and 6’5-6’5.5 range (probably no higher than 6’5.25 though) peak

@viper and 184guy2

He can look a full 6'3" with Rob best case, but no more than that. He really looks 6'2.75" in that pic.
Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Viper: I’d like to see Hulk standing straight next to Merriman. I could see a 3-4cm advantage if he’s really as low as you saw him and how he looked with Bennett. I think hogan could still be strong 6’3 but no more. Perhaps solid 6’3 no less
Canson said on 17/Dec/18

@Canson

True. I'd put Hogan at 6'2.75" today personally but 6'3" or even strong 6'3" is possible as well.
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Dream: to your question about who would measure taller between he and Fagerbakke, I would say for sure the latter. Fagerbakke wouldn’t be low or mid 6’5 range (strong 6’5) or even a weak 6’6”. To me He looks like he’s listed here on this site at solid 6’6”. Meaning I could see Bill waking up to 6’7” perhaps or a hair under maybe while Hogan May wake up to 6’6” max. People underestimate how thick his boots were and his overall choices in footwear
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
Foreman didn’t look as much as 3” shorter than Hogan. We need to realize that Hogan wears thick boots as well
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Viper: that’s the case with a lot of pics. The celeb may not appear as tall in the pic with him but they typically are
Henry said on 16/Dec/18
The Hulkster looks like a towering Giant with Buster Douglas.
Click Here
Douglas had a big footwear advantage as well. The Hulkster looks AT LEAST 6'8 1/16" and at least 330 lbs. He actually looks closer to 6'9"
Halb said on 16/Dec/18
Taker was roughly the same as Sid Justice, and Justice was 2" taller in that Hogan in their staredowns, of course, either might have worn lifts. Lister says Hogan was taller so that's why he wore colossal heels on his boots.
184guy2 said on 16/Dec/18
@viper
he clearly doesn't , but he looks to have a poor posture and maybe knocked down a bit from his peak
viper said on 15/Dec/18
IMO Buster doesn't look 6-3 with Rob. At best 188-189.
secondrowback said on 15/Dec/18
@Canson
I fully agree with you. 6'3 today seems correct. Peak for me was strong 6'5. Maybe 6'5.5 but more likely 6'5.25. 6'6 just seems a little too much. 6'7? No chance!
Canson said on 15/Dec/18
@PDodgy, Christian, Michael Loughrie and Rob:

Hogan today I wouldn’t argue with. He is around 6’3” or maybe a hair above the mark is possible still like 6’3 1/8”. I think Rob has him listed appropriately for his current.

Peak height is still up for debate. I don’t see him being 6’6” still. He was similar in height with Tiny Lister and was only about 2” shorter than Undertaker who was 6’7 maybe 6’7..25 peak. I guess 6’5.5 is a remote possibility but have a much more difficult time believing he was only an inch shorter than Taker at his peak. I really have him strong 6’5 at best peak as he even came out and said in an article once that he was only 6’5 not 6’7” like the interviewer implied.

Reality check. A 6’6” Hogan would make him around 6’8” in cowboy boots yet he looks significantly shorter next to Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon than Magic Johnson (~6’8.5” in dress shoes) does

I find it interesting how Hogan looks so tall next to 5'9" Tommy Lasorda (1986):

Nor sure what Lasorda’s actual height was. He was listed at 5’10” as a player 30 years earlier than that photo.

Compare Lasorda with Don Drysdale Click Here who was listed in baseball as 6’6” but has many 6’5” references, including on his official website. Click Here

But Buster looked max 6'3" with you. I think Hogan looked max 6'5.5" if Buster's 6'3".

Hulk Hogan was a solid 6' 6" back in the day, 6' 3" now

In other words, great listing
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Viper: I can believe it at his peak
Pdoggy said on 14/Dec/18
Hogan always had at least three in on both George Foreman & Buster Douglas which puts him right where I always thought he was a little over 6'6.
viper said on 14/Dec/18
I can buy 6-11 for Andre, but no lower.

There is a pic of him in the early 70s visiting a local restaurant and he physically looks 7-0 with others around him.
184guy2 said on 13/Dec/18
@RP Yeah
He looks to be at least 2 inches taller than Buster Douglas
Peak Hogan is pretty hard to catch , looked anywhere from 6'5 up to 6'6
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@RP: I’d say maybe no less than 6’5 peak for him. Not sold on how much over he is
Canson said on 12/Dec/18
@62B and RP: I think rob is about an inch off at his peak but his current is likely about right. He was Tiny Lister’s height peak but Tiny has retained his well. He’s probably near 2” taller than him today

@Rising: I have heard everything under the sun for Andre. One person tried to tell me he was really 7’4”. Then one said he was only 6’8” I think once. They believed he was 5” taller than a peak Hogan (like the pic suggests) who was only supposed to be 6’3”. He is 6’3 today not peak. I have an employee who’s in his 40s that’s seen Hogan up close and thought he was about my size in the 90s I believe. Likely he had already lost height by then

Rob just added a Buster Douglas page...has meet him & confirmed his 6’3-1/2” height. This should destroy all of the sub-6’5” peak Hulk Hogan comments. Proves that a peak Hulk Hogan was indeed “over” 6’5” !!!
Editor Rob
Buster in his 50's isn't less than 6ft 3, so I can buy 6ft 3.5 and Hogan I think looked 6ft 6 range with Buster.
Canson said on 12/Dec/18
@62B and Rising: I agree on Andre. I think 6’10-6’11 then and with a chance of 6’11” flat being his peak
Canson said on 12/Dec/18
@62B: I agree. I would say probably just an ordinary 6’5” maybe similar in his range to what Rob measures in the 5’8” range. Maybe 6’5.75 and 6’5 or 6’5.75-6’6 out of bed and 6’5-6’5.25 (probably wake up to 7/8 and 1/8 low are more realistic for him than waking up a full 6’6”. I didn’t get a strong 6’5 impression more a solid one. What you said is probably correct

@Canson: Personally, I don't believe Andre was ever 7'0". More like 6'11" or 6'11.5" at the absolute most, imo and I think he looked more 6'10" range in the 80's. @62B: It's at least 6" in that pic for sure, but yeah Andre has cowboy boots and looks to have some ground/camera advantage, though with worse posture than Hogan. @RP: Interesting, I never noticed that. Unless it's the angle then it's very possible Hulk had a footwear advantage, though the height difference didn't smaller than usual, imo.
RP said on 11/Dec/18
@ 62B @ Canson
Totally agree peak Hogan morning 6’5-3/4” & evening Hogan 6’5-1/4”

Peak André 7’0” to 7’0-1/4”
Andre by 1983 6’11-1/2”
Andre by 1987 6’11” with perfect posture
Andre by 1990 6’10-1/2” with perfect posture
Andre by 1992 6’10” to 6’9-3/4” with perfect posture
RP said on 11/Dec/18
62B, yep...in that photo...is that from 1980? Sidewalk looks like it’s sloped slightly in Hogan’s favor (water runoff & drainage purposes) so, that might negate Andre’s 1.25” footwear advantage. They actually look pretty much like they did in the ring & promos through the years in that pic.
62B said on 10/Dec/18
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
I doubt Hogan was ever a full 6’6” in his prime. Maybe he woke up to 6’6” (maybe) but he walked around at 6’5-6’5.25. Over 6’5 1/4 is stretching it. Today 6’3 is very good estimate. I’d say much than that or much more than that is stretching it. I doubt he’s 6’2 or 6’4
______________________________________________

I agree. Pretty much spot on. I doubt he even woke up at 6'6". Maybe 6'5 3/4" right out of bed and probably held 6'5"-6'5 1/4" through out the day.

@Rising: I’m not sure who’s shoes are thicker in the first pic but yea he generally did look around that with him. Guess Andre wasn’t as tall as listed if that’s the case. Andre couldn’t have been more than 6’10” range or maybe slightly taller than Big Show currently is
___________________________________________________________________--

Mid to late 80's Andre was between 6'10" and 6'11" depending on the time of day if he stood straight in my opinion. His standing around posture was really horrible at that time and could appear shorter.
RP said on 10/Dec/18
Does anyone else find it odd that the top Hogan’s foot is 1” higher than Ander’s during the Wrestlmania 3 in ring staredown? Andre’s feet were twice the size as Hogan’s & much thicker! So!.....either Hogan was wearing 1” lifts in his boots? Or, Andre @ 500 lbs sank 1” deeper into the ring mat than Hogan did @ 300 lbs??? Hmmm? Never noticed this before?? No one! I mean no one, in equal footwear in pro wrestling is going to have a thicker foot than André! Especially not what looks to be 0.75” to 1” thicker, from bottom of shoe sole to top of foot.
Canson said on 9/Dec/18
@Vegas: I don’t know if Boomer is 6’4+ today. He does look around 6’4” but Christian has a point he could look 6’3.5 too. To your credit he looks as tall as James Brown sometimes but not as tall other times. Brown is probably 6’4.5 himself since he indicated that

Food for thought:

Now compare w/ the pic of Big Show vs. 6'5" Austin Seferian-Jenkins, both w/ Boomer...
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Dec/18
@Vegas

Big Show's head is tilted up, and his eyes aren't looking straight ahead at the center of the camera lens, so that's why the difference can seem bigger than what it is. But if you go by the top of their heads, it's a textbook 6" difference.

@Sotiris

I can see 6'3.5" for Boomer, but Canson also has a good point about him being solid 6'4". I don't know if he can look as low as 6'3", but Boomer does look max 6'3.5" next to 6'9.5" Big Show, 6'6" Wilder and 6'5" Jenkins, but there are some pics where Boomer looks 6'4". You and Canson both make great points.
Sotiris Gravas said on 7/Dec/18
@Christian Compare the JT pic of Boomer and Show that you posted, here again w/ height lines:

Now, compare the Boomer/Show pic I posted from 2015 (I believe), w/ height lines:
Click Here


Either Show has clearly lost height from one pic to the next, or he had a footwear advantage in the JT pic. What year was that JT pic taken...?


@Canson I value your opinion, dude (you, too, Christian) and I wanna believe Boomer is still 6'4", but 6'6" Deontay Wilder had more than 2 inches on him. Even 6'5" Austin Seferian-Jenkins towers over him:

Here's 6'7" Magic and Lopez... Click Here , Click Here

So, if Seferian-Jenkins is 6'5", how can Boomer be only 1" shorter than him when he clearly isn't...?

Vegas' said on 6/Dec/18
Christian, more than 6 inches there. Remember Show has a ~12 inch head. Minimum 5 inches between his eyes and top of his head..

Show looks solid 6'11 there next to 6'4+ Boomer who is also slightly closer to camera.

I mean Show looks more than an inch taller there compared to 6'8.5 barefoot measured Stoudemire Click Here and not nearly 4 inches off 7'1 measured Mutombo in comparison Click Here

@RP: it’s odd for sure. But Marino was measured 6’3 1/4 as well. One is probably just earlier in the day. He looks closer to 6’3 than 6’4. But Brown looked 6’4 range and so does Boomer imho
RP said on 5/Dec/18
That CBS Studio Host pic makes no sense at all?? Shannon Sharpe is a week 6’2”...like 6’1-5/8” barefoot I do believe?? And he’s looking 6’3” in this photo ?? Picture is skewed or they are not on completely level ground? Marino was measured 6’3-5/8” barefoot @ age 20 @ Pittsburg. James Brown is a legit 6’4” to 6’4-1/4” & often referred to as 6’5”. And Boomer at the age & year of that photo was still a hair over 6’4”. So, 6’1-1/2” Sharpe & 6’2-1/2” Cowher are throwing the alignment of this photo way off..IMO. I think Boomer maybe a hair under 6’4” now in 2018...around 6’3-3/4” is my guess.
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Sotiris: I definitely respect your opinion. You’re one of the most respectful posters here even if I don’t always agree with your estimates. What I was saying about Boomer is that he’s still as tall as James Brown. I’d be extremely surprised if Brown were any shorter than I am (if he’s lost height). I still measure at 6’4.25 at a normal days low if not a mm above some days. Here is Brown with Esiason. I think what you’re seeing with Boomer is pics when he has poor posture to be fair. When he stands straight he still looks 6’4”

@Canson IDK, I think I have to respectfully disagree w/ Boomer being 6'4". Mariota looked taller than him and 6'6" Wilder towered over him. There was definitely more than a 2" diff between Wilder and Boomer... who is now 57 and IMHO, is suffering from height loss.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18

Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Sotiris: I’ve met James Brown before in person years back. He appeared taller than me (I’m 6’4.25). I pegged him as about half inch taller perhaps and then I saw him say 6’4.5-6’5 range. Maybe he had footwear advantage on me but either way he likely isn’t much under 6’4.5 or worst case my height but I think 6’4.5 is fair based on how he also looked with Howie Long who is 6’4”. Boomer isn’t shorter than Brown by 1-1.5”. In some pics he’s still taller and some they’re similar in height whereas others maybe Brown Edges him slightly. Boomer is at very worst still 6’4 range. I’ve also met Dan Marino and he’s about an inch shorter than me. No chance Boomer is all the way down to 6’3” today like you said

Click Here
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Sotiris: I have Boomer still around 6’4” even today. Not 6’3”. As for Mariota, he measured 6036 and that was in the morning. He’s not more than 6’3 3/8 maybe 6’3.25 based on Celebheights standards (afternoon). Hogan is still 6’3” today. Show is perhaps 6’9” range today but could still be closer to 6’10.

RONSTER said on 25/Nov/18
Interesting comments from son Nick Hogan this week, said that at 65 his Dad Hulk is still 6’5” and over 300lbs. He may exaggerate, but he has also in the past stated his Dad was always way over 300lbs and more like 330 in his prime which I would say is accurate. As for his height now that over 6’5” would be in his runners, Hulk is still 6’4” when he stands up straight easily.
Sotiris Gravas said on 25/Nov/18

Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Nov/18
@Canson: Yeah, when exactly he started losing height is tricky. I think early 90's is most probable and he seems to have lost much of his height that decade. I don't believe he's ever been as short as 6'2" myself. He may look that short at times with bad posture, but I don't think that's ever been his height as he'd measure. Maybe upper 6'2" range(6'2"-6'2.75") at worst, imo. I wonder how much of his height loss coincided with his big weight loss just before and around the early WCW years.

Hulk looked to have a fractional edge on Hall in the NWO meet and greet pictures. His posture on some photos was actually very good, and he looked to be standing almost fully straight at times.

Just shows that he can still look around the 6'4 range when he actually stands properly, in reality I think if measured at military posture he would clear 6'3, but by how much I'm not sure.

Hall still looks around the weaker 6'4 mark these days, an inch down on his peak. I'm waiting for Mr Height Loss to appear and say that Hall is down to 6'1.5.

@Rising and RP: one thing that often makes Hulk difficult to gauge may be the fact that it’s heavily debated as to when he began losing his height as well as whether or not he lost and regained like people say. I could see that at one point as Danimal and others have said he was 6’2” at points. I also keyed in on what Alan32080 mentioned about the vertebrae having been removed.
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Rising: I will say that he could be the full 6’5.25 at his peak. I think today with normal posture he may be closer to what Alan32080 suggested. While I don’t think 6’3.5 at a low a good 6’3 is as low as I could argue. 6’3.25 is actually arguable still but that’s as much as I could

@RP: Thanks, I saw the A-Team episodes years ago, but didn't remember if he had cowboy boots the entire episodes, but every shot I see his footwear in that seems to be the case: Click Here but I would say they look more like 1.75" heels than 2": Click Here I had thought Belzer looked 6'0"-6'0.5" during his time on Homicide and even Law & Order SVU, but even keeping in mind I have an easier time seeing Peppard a full 6'0" by 1985-86 than most, it's difficult to imagine Belzer taller with the difference in footwear you mention.

@PekaHauhner: I don't think he looks bigger than that moving around the ring and certainly not while taking the polaroid after the match, but if he does, it wouldn't be such a surprise if they used camera angles to make Hulk look more like the nearly 7' Andre the Giant-size character he was supposed to be. But I think it's more that a minimum 6'5" guy, 295 pound guy will look enormous next to a 5'9" max, 163 pound guy.
RP said on 11/Nov/18
Rising,
Hogan with Peppard was wearing cowboy boots. With Belzer he had on thin sneakers. Belzer was only 6’1” in shoes. More like 6’0” barefoot. Possibly even 5’11-3/4” true barefoot.
PekaHauhnar said on 11/Nov/18
I know it is in a movie but Hogan looks well over 6'5" in Rocky III even when they were moving around
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson: Sounds like as good of a guess as any for both peak and current. The only thing I'll say is that definitely puts Belzer under 6'1" and closer to a flat 6'0", though if ground is flat with Peppard and Hulk isn't bending his knee then this comparison JT did suggests that might not be wrong: Click Here

Canson, yeah...can’t argue that.

6’5/6’5.25 peak
6’3-6’3 1/8 today
RP said on 4/Nov/18
@ Solidpeas...
Keep scrolling down in the fan pics...there are two pics that’ are full length & show footwear...all three guys are in sneakers. Hogan & Hall are basically dead on in height. One could say that Hall “might” be 0.25” taller...but, that’s it! And yes, Hulk’s fluctuating & failing posture make his height almost impossible to nail down at times. Rob, study these pics...I think Scott Hall needs a 0.5” downgrade ...or Hogan would need a 0.25” to 0.5” up grade. IMO...Hogan 6’3” & Hall 6’3.25”...you could even argue 6’3.5” for both men by judging witn Nash.
IMO:
Hogan Peak: 6’5.5” to 6’5.25”
Current: 6’3”
Hall Peak: 6’5”
Current: 6’3.25”
Nash Peak: 6’9.25” to 6’9.5”
Current: 6’8.5” to 6’8.75”

Here are some photos from the nWo Q&A thing Click Here

If you scroll down to the photos with fans, Hogan and Hall are looking dead even in some photos. Some have Hogan's head higher and some have Hall's
Couldn't say with the footwear. That looked pretty even too.
So Hogan would have to still be about 6'3 if Hall is also 6'3 or 6'4

For Hogan I'd say his peak was between 6'5 and 6'6 but never 6'7. That was just kayfabe as they say. Now he must be about 6'3 after all the injuries and surgery.
With Hogan, his posture has to be taken into account also. I don't think he can straighten his neck back or straighten his knees when he stands.
His body would be longer sole to head when he lies down than how tall he could stand up if he tried.

You can tell he is a bigger person than most when you look at the size of his hands and feet. They are bigger than a normal 6'2-6'3 person.

@Canson: I agree with you that he's about 6'3" today. I don't doubt he can look 6'2" with bad posture, but I'd be surprised if he didn't measure somewhere around 190-191 cm. I'm still somewhat torn on his peak. 6'5.5" has been my guess for a long time, but I also consider the possibility of 6'5"-6'5.25" or same height as Tiny Lister. Hulk generally looked more 6'5" than 6'6" with 5'10.5"-5'11" Mr. T in the mid 80's: Click Here The only time I saw the difference look 7"+ was when Hulk had at least an inch footwear advantage: Click Here I'm in the minority guessing T at 5'11" peak as it is, but Hulk still didn't look 6'6" with him. I'm still somewhat undecided on where he was in the 6'5" range. As I said a while back, I was actually leaning more towards 6'5"-6'5.25" than my usual 6'5.5" guess before seeing the Belzer video again.

@berta: I can agree there were times he looked that such as with Richard Belzer if Belzer's listing was correct. He also looked it as late as 1988 if Trump was indeed a full 6'2", though I don't know if Hulk was wearing his cowboy boots. As for height loss, it can start as early as 30 for some and there's no reason it couldn't start even earlier with enough stress on the spine, joints, bones etc. Hulk Hogan was certainly not your typical man in any way physically. With that said, I believe Hulk was probably at his peak height throughout the entire 80's.

@ Canson... + 1 👍 I Agee on both those observations.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Nov/18
6'5.5" does still look about right if Ed McMahon hadn't lost height by 1982 and I can't see arguing less than a solid 6'5"-6'5.25" minimum for Hulk if that's the case.
Canson said on 1/Nov/18
@Rising: I’ve always been an advocate of the solid or strong 6’5”. He could’ve been a hair over 6’5” in his prime honestly. I would still say he’s 6’3” today as opposed to 6-2
berta said on 31/Oct/18
Sometimes in old photos and videos he can really look 6 foot 6. The guy have lost a lot of height. Maybe he even lost his first fraction at the age of 35-40. Keep in mind that he was maybe around 130-135 kg for most of his career and always jumped up in the air and landed on his ass in his finish move. I think even a 20 year old guy that do that could loose height efter a couple years. My guess if i would bet money on his height at peak, would be legit 197 cm
RP said on 30/Oct/18
Even with a 0.75” footwear advantage...hard not to call Hogan a strong 6’5.5” with Ed McMahon on the Johnny Carson Show in 1982
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Oct/18
@Sotiris: Good pic with Johnny Carson. It does look like Hulk has a typical 1.75" cowboy heel. Rob lists Carson at the 5'10.5" he claimed, but I agree 5'10" flat is probably closer. I don't see more than 6.5" or 7" max there. Hulk might be leaning a bit more dropping some height, but he has at least half an inch footwear advantage.

Here's Hogan next to Jim Brunzell (billed as 5'10") that I've never seen before:
Click Here I've seen him listed as low as 5'9" online. If Hogan were really 6'7", Brunzell's head would come up to his chin.

Here's a more recent pic of Brunzell (poor posture) and his Killer Bees partner B. Brian Blair w/ Hillbilly Jim:
Click Here (I'm pretty sure that Hillbilly is in his cowboy boots.)


Compare that w/ Duggan and One Man Gang (serious back problems)... Click Here

I love how B. Brian Blair was billed as 6'1", though he was shorter than 5'10" Brunzell:
Click Here

Greg Gagne was billed as 6'2" though they were very close in height... Click Here
