Hogan's peak height at around 1978 was 6ft 5 inches, although with lifts and thick heeled boots he could look 6ft 7 inches. Do you have 100% proof that he was 6ft 6 inches in his youth?
Canson said on 10/Jul/20
@Mikey97: Rob isn’t sure when Hogan began to lose height but I would say a start for Hogan due to the uncertainty should be 6’5.5” no higher. Sweet spot 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon really
Mikey97 said on 8/Jul/20
6'6" peak Hogan would make Sid 6'7" minimum. I don't think anyone agrees with that
Canson said on 7/Jul/20
@RP: that would be fair. 6’5.5 is measurable early in the day after maybe 2 hours or maybe less but 6’6 is an Out of bed at best
RP said on 6/Jul/20
@ Canson & @ 62B,
I totally agree! Peak afternoon standards height was 6’5.25”-ish.
However, my gut tells me that his eventual peak height downgrade will only be to 6’5.5”
Canson said on 4/Jul/20
@Sean R: I’m starting to doubt 6’5.5” as a peak height. That’s if we use the same afternoon standard. I’d say 6’5.25” at best. He may have just been 6’5. in the 90s more like 6’4” as he was shorter than Barkley who was around 6’4.5
Canson said on 3/Jul/20
@RP: yep and long overdue for that to have been reduced. 6’5.5” is a fair compromise although I believe going strictly off afternoon heights that 6’5.25” would be more like it. Surprisingly, I think his current is on point or within 1/4” in either direction. Yes he may be under listed by 1/4” potentially

I think hogan was 6ft 7 peak and now 6,3.5

The down grade is coming. Look for peak height to be changed to 6’5.5” by Rob, on of before Terry’s 67th Birthday on August 11.
____________________________________________________________________--

If Rob were to change it I would think 6'5.25" would be a better downgrade.
SeanR said on 1/Jul/20
Hogan looked 6’4.5” range during the NWO days (1996-1999). He looked to only have lost an inch off his peak (6’5.5”).

2 inches shorter than 6’6.5” Dennis Rodman and 2.5 inches taller than 6’2” Sting.

6'5/6'5.25 peak and 6'3/6'3.25 today.

Yeah Hulk needs a downgrade to peak height 6’4” and current height 6’1.5”
Canson said on 28/Jun/20
SeanR said on 22/Jun/20
Hulk looks to be under 6’3” these days.

The pics with NFL Jameis Winston (6’3 3/4”) and James Connor (6’2”) shows Hogan looking only 6’2.5” or 6’2.75” today.

Possible downgrade again Rob.

I actually believe his current is about right. IMO 6’2.75-6’3.25 range. It’s the peak height that needs some attention as he was never 6’6”. 6’5.5 is even a stretch imo. 6’5.25 maybe and 6’6 out of bed or even 6’5 flat

James Connor is 6-1

Definitely needs peak downgrade to 6-5 imo.

Agree Miko.

It's funny so many use that photo with Christopher Lloyd to show how tall Hogan was but that was 1990, same Buster Douglas...

That's 79 and he doesn't look taller there with ~5'10 Russell than in 1989/90
Canson said on 25/Jun/20
@SeanR: Hogan is also known to have very poor posture. He can look at least 6’3 with Tyson Fury. Also you would have to deduct 3/8-1/2” from those two guys as they’re morning measured.

Hulk looks to be still 6'3 or slightly over these days.

I'd be shocked if Hogan had lost any noticeable height by the early 90's, a quarter of an inch at the absolute maximum. He was 37 when he first stood next to Sid, are we supposed to believe he'd nearly lost 2 inches by that time and would have been eye to eye with Sid 15 years before? No chance.

He only started looking shorter from the mid to late 90's when his knees starting going and the steroids and injuries caught up. He was still in the same height range as 6'5 Brian Adams and Scott Hall in his NWO days.
Canson said on 21/Jun/20
@Riky: he can give off that impression today at times but I really feel he’s still 6’3”. Peak height is trickier but in the 70s maybe early 80s like John Hendricks said is when he began to lose his height. I would’ve pegged him as the full 6’5 or 6’5.25 peak
Canson said on 21/Jun/20
John Hendricks said on 20/Jun/20
@Canson

Hulk already lost height when he faced Sid. His peak was in the late 1970s not early 1990s. Hulk wrestled Andre at Shea Stadium in 1979.

Agreed. I also said that he wasn’t 6’5” in the 90s so I agree. But his peak wouldve have been 6’6 any way you slice it. He was 6’5” range peak.

Viper a 6'6 Hogan is more ridiculous considering 1983 Hogan is shorter next to Gene Okerlund than 95 Barkley.

I don't think Barkley was 6'6 but if you think Barkley was 6'4 1/2 then Hogan wasn't taller than 6'4 flat at his peak using Okerlund video comparison footage.

@Vegas: but Rob mentioned before that Hogan May have lost height earlier than the others which is why he kept him at 6’6”. But imho Hogan could’ve been 6’4” in the 90s and Barkley 6’4 5/8”. But that means a peak Hogan was around 6’5” which is how he looked with Sid

viper said on 16/Jun/20
Barkley just doesn't look any taller than 6-5

You can argue his 6-4 5/8 and 6-4.75 measurements were late in the day, but that still shows 6-5 Max you could ever give him.

He’s claimed 6’4.5 and others in his peak guessed him at 6’4” that played with him. It’s arguable that 6’4.75 could be an hour out of bed and he could’ve been 6’4 3/8”. My guess holds at 6’4 5/8 tho

I give him 6ft 5in tops morning height. Just under 6ft 3in now. They lifted his boots, built the heels a lot in his prime. Listed as 6ft 8in... Laughable 😂 same as 7ft 5in listed Andre. Who was still a giant, but 7ft tops.
Canson said on 16/Jun/20
@Berta: with Sid coming out and saying he was only 6’6” himself, that all but debunks the 6’6” myth for Hogan. He wasn’t as tall as Sid in his prime. I can agree he was at least 6’5 peak but not 6’6”

if sid was legit 'only' 6'6 then Hogan was no more than 6'3 in 91' there is footage where Hogan is with Warrior who is about 6'2 and they are face to face Hogan no more than an inch taller and Sid comes out as he is going to be guest referee and he absolutely towers both of them. if Hogan has lost height since those days which he must have he can't be over 6'2 today.
berta said on 15/Jun/20
i thinl he was at best 198 peak and could have been down to 197 already when he was fighting andre the giant in mid 80s. the strange thing is that hulk did look 4,5-5 inchees shorter than andre in many shoots. if hogan was 197 then andre could have been donw to just over 6´10 in their wrestlemania match. i peronally never thought andre looked 7 foot but more 6´10. hogan in the mid 90s looked like 195 and early 2000s hw was barely taller than the rock , maybe 193 cm
70s 197,5-198
80s 196,5-197
90s 195-196
2000s 193
2010 192
2020 190
He probably have lost 7-8 cm by now

Canson, if you have FULL BODY pics of Jordan and Barkley standing side by side and without any camera tilt or crazy angle, post away. Barkley’s build is different than Anthony’s so they are not going to look the same height on the court, leaving aside the fact that no one can eyeball the height of a player on the court down to the inch.

There was not just an inch difference between Barkley and Conan Click Here Barkley could stand taller too. Rob has Conan at 6’4” so you can’t disregard certain of Rob’s height estimates to fit an agenda.

David Stern in the 1980s and much of the 1990s was at least 5’8” like Mean Gene. Click Here You won’t find any photos or videos of Hogan next to Gene looking this tall unless Hogan was wearing big cowboy boots.

Barkley may have shrunk in recent years, especially from his long-term obesity, but he would have been looking down at Hogan in the 1980s.

Post away? Where’s your proof JT? Barkley measured 6’4 5/8” peak and said here to Chick Hearn that he was 6’4 3/4”. That was in the 80s. Then Moses Malone called him 6’4 so did Joe Klein. So you’re accusing me of having an agenda. Are you saying guys who have seen him (unlike you) also have agenda? Jordan also said before that he and Barkley are about the same height. If you’re accusing me of that, I can say the same that you make Barkley 6’6” to fit your narratives

I can't believe there are still people on this site who think Barkley was a ridiculous 6-6.

Rob doesn't even have him at 6-5

Some of the same people who do that swear by pre draft listings. Those are the ones that were proven not to be 100% accurate all of the time. Like Shawne Merriman or Like the player who supposedly measured 6’5” but was listed 6’3” that you posted about. Then I’ve heard “Well Dwayne Wade measured 6’3.75 so he is”. He came out with a 6’3.25 claim and not even sure it’s a low for him. Yet neither of those possibilities, the low or the accuracy, are considered by some of these posters. Instead they inflate Barkley or use the old excuse about the validity of the measurement “Said measurement didn’t take place” or the “Well it says Bird and Malone measured 6’7” And Barkley 6’4”. Theyre two different articles. The one Rob referred to for Barkley doesn’t mention Malone or Bird only Barkley and Magic and Barkley’s 6’4 5/8 is very specific. If they were to round he would be listed 6’5” not 6’4”

Giant Gonzalez on that God-awful Thunder in Paradise show with Hogan Click Here

Click Here The staredown with Hogan is from 1993 Click Here and with Fred Ottman/Typhoon in 1991 Click Here IMO Fred Ottman was around 6’4”, or an inch shorter than Hogan.

This wrestler next to Ottman looks around 6’7” Click Here

There’s no evidence Barkley was ever measured at 6’4 5/8” for the 1992 Olympics just like there is no evidence supporting the 6’7” claim for Larry Bird during that same Olympics. Plus, there is no reason why any basketball player, let alone any athlete at the Olympics, required measuring.

If Barkley is 6’4 5/8” Michael Jordan is a good inch shorter. Click Here
Gene Okerlund would be around 5’6” and a 1987-1988 Andre probably sub-6’8” considering those big orthopedic shoes he wore during that time frame. Click Here Maybe Sotiris’ estimate was right…..

I suppose Barkley could be an occasional lift wearer but that would be inconsistent with his downplaying his height.

It doesn’t mention anything about Bird measuring at the Olympics. Only Magic and Barkley and that’s at the top of Barkley’s page. You’re combining the two articles one of which says 6’4” flat for Barkley that says 6’7” for Bird. That one is not reliable of course because they knocked off 2 inches for each player. The other where it specifically states that they measured Barkley at 6’4 5/8 and Magic closer to 6’7” is not the same article. And like Viper just said Barkley is physically very small for a 6’6” guy too small to be believable. Carmelo Anthony physically looks much taller than Barkley does and he is 6’6” range himself. But I don’t put it past Barkley to wear enhanced footwear on occasion. Also Jordan isn’t 1” shorter than Barkley. Rob wouldn’t have listed them like he did if he were. For every pic of Jordan being shorter I can find one where he is taller than Barkley. For good measure Conan is about 6’3.5” and Barkley doesn’t look a full inch taller than him. Maybe he’s lost a fraction but peak height he was 6’4 5/8 which is believeable being he claimed 6’5” on occasion too
viper said on 10/Jun/20
Just looking at Barkley on the basketball court physically you can tell he wasn't 6-6.

6-6 he's certainly the shortest I've ever seen play basketball

How can it be a fraud when a lot of the heights on there were correct.

It accurately had Sid Eudy at 198cm
----------------
Just because a few heights seem close to the truth, doesn't make the list legit.

If that list is legit, than all heights/weights on that list are legit. You cannot pick & choose the heights you agree with, while ignoring the others.

A lot of the heights on that list are wrong. It has Nash at 203cm and Big Show at 213cm. Unless Nash was wearing lifts, no way was there 4 inches between them. And don't even get me started on Big Show's weight on that list. Same goes for Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter. The difference between those two wasn't 11 cm as the list is implying.
Bret Hart at 175cm and Bob Backlund at 176cm are wrong aswell.

But what makes that list truly fishy is the fact that it has wrestlers on it who weren't even in the WWE in 1996. Goldberg didn't start wrestling for the WWE until 2003, yet he was on that list. Care to explain that Viper?

Same goes for guys like Big Show, Eddie Guerrero & Chris Benoit. None of them were WWE employees in 1996 or before. They all wrestled in 1996, just not for the WWE.

Notice how he doesn't mention any wrestlers who started wrestling after 1996. Guys like Kurt Angle or Brock Lesnar. So excuses that he might've updated the list over the years don't really make any sense either as I would expect guys like Lesnar, Angle & Jericho to be on it aswell.

Agreed with JT that Barkley was around 6'6.

197cm is 6'5 range.

198cm is just shy of 6'6

198.5-200cm would be 6'6

People don’t look at it that way, Vegas. When they see 197 cm range 6’5.5+ or 6’5.75” they just think of 6’6”. I see what you’re saying with range but Sid said that he’s “about 6’6”. 6’5.75” is about 6’6” and so is 6’6.25. I could include 6’5.5 and 6’6.5 in there. And 198cm being shy of 6’6” sounds a bit silly because most guys listed at 6’6” are listed at 198cm. 6’6 is actually 198.12cm which is closer to 198 than 198.5. That’s splitting hairs.

When did Hogan ever stand next to Barkley? Never seen a pic of those two together.

The Mexican Mentor list is a fraud and has been debunked 15 years ago. Can't believe that Viper is still quoting that list as if it means something.

It’s not completely inaccurate. Sid is, in fact, 198cm like it lists him. He admitted to being 6’6” so even if he’s somehow 199 or 197 for that matter, he’s still around that. 6’6” is rounded to 198. You’re right. Hogan and Barkley May not have. I could’ve sworn they had. but Barkley looked taller next to other celebs. Also Dennis Rodman did stand next to Hogan and he was good 2” taller

I’ve never seen a photo of Hogan and Barkley together even though they appeared at the same Dec 4 1995 Nitro event in Phoenix and likely would have met backstage.

I’ve posted a comparison photo before where Hogan and Barkley are standing in the same spot in the ring that night. Click Here

This is how Hogan and Barkley measured up next to Mean Gene that same night (different spots in the ring which is why the ring ropes don’t match up)
Click Here
Click Here

Hogan’s heels look typical for a cowboy boot (~ 2 inches).
Click Here They look like the same ones when he first joined the NWO. Barkley was wearing casual footwear (maybe 1 to 1.25 inch heel).

Mean Gene was around 5’8” and Barkley around 6’6” back then. Hogan in cowboy boots looks clearly shorter than Barkley in regular shoes although Henry will claim Hogan had an engine block strapped to his back for the preceding month….

Barkley had around 7 inches on Flair Click Here

B.S. Buster Douglas has footwear advantage over Hogan and you picked photos where Hogan had bad posture, a wide stance, etc.
Buster Douglas had incredibly wide shoulders and long arms with a 6'11 1/2" wingspan. Hogan makes him look like a midget with short arms and narrow shoulders.
Here's what the ACTUAL difference in height looks like. Hollywood usually exaggerates height by 2 Inches. Thunderlips was billed a 6'11 15/16" in Rocky 3.

If that link doesn't work, there's also a link here that includes Beltzer(where Beltzer has the footwear advantage), Mr T in the squared circle where Mr.T has a footwear advantage, Stallone where Stallone has a footwear advantage, etc.

@Henry You know what, that's all the evidence I needed. I'm with you that Hogan was a minimum of 6'8 9/16" peak height! Go Henry!

@Rob Since you downgraded a peak Taker, doesn't it make sense to downgrade a peak Hogan?
Editor Rob
A peak Hogan could have lost height earlier in his career.

Henry so what you're saying is you think hogan had mr t and stallone by about a foot now that's a rotflmfao you need your eyes checked man in rocky 3 hogan was standing on a box and he definitely didn't have anywhere near a foot on mr t you just confirmed you're definitely a troll

@Miko ROTFLMFAO. If peak Hogan was 6'5", that would make Buster Douglas 5'11" Richard Beltzer 5'8 1/2", Mr.T 5'5 1/2" and Stallone 5'4 1/4".

Hogan has thicker boots on and is closer to the camera. That’s not a 6” difference. Hogan has max 2” on him in some pics. Really it was even less if both stood barefoot. Douglas was about 6’3.5” peak and Hogan 6’5-6’5.5 range

@Henry: whether or not he actually saw the Xrays/images is a post for another day. I could tell you that I was on the moon and it not be true because I’ve never been. In addition there’s no actual way to tell how much height he’s lost. I guarantee he was never 6’8 9/16. He never claimed that

Henry I admire your points, but let's be realistic here, a 6'8.5 Hogan would put prime Kevin Nash at 7'1 and prime Big Show at 7'3.

And a near 6'5 Vince McMahon!

Henry you must be a troll you expect us just to believe your chiropractor used to be hogan's where's your proof
Henry said on 31/May/20
My chiropractor has seen Hogan's X-rays of his curved spine from leg drops. He knows a million times more about curved spines, scoliosis and spinal height loss more than all of the posters here combined. He had met Hogan in the early 80s and is a big Hulkamaniac.
Hogan's mother also measured him while standing on a step ladder from high above at an angle which reduced Hogan's height. It was probably after Hogan was awake for 30 hours partying like he used to do in the 80s. 6'8 9/16" is the absolute minimum peak barefoot height for Hogan before he stepped into the squared circle for the first time. Even with an already curved spine, he simply looks like a giant compared to Buster Douglas, Richard Beltzer and others despite Hogan having a giant footwear disadvantage.

Hogan and Dr. D David Schultz on their tippy toes from the early 1980s Click Here
Schultz and Mr. T Click Here
Schultz looked 6’1”ish in interviews with Mean Gene.

Henry, leaving aside the fact that your chiropractor never examined Hogan and that we don’t have old and new x-rays to compare, talk to an orthopedic surgeon, not a chiropractor, if you are looking for an informed medical opinion regarding someone’s spine.

Regarding Chris Masters, he only posted a partial x-ray of his spine and he looks to have cervical scoliosis only, which can occur naturally (I have double scoliotic thoracic and lumbar curves that developed when I was young and not from any injury, etc.). Masters’ thoracic spine looks perfectly straight. I could see wrestlers developing osteoarthritis, stenosis, disc herniation, etc. in their cervical spine from the repeated “whiplash” head movements – not sure if that could cause his spine to curve like that. He’s pretty young for degenerative scoliosis and that usually occurs in the lumbar area. Regardless, his curve is not that large.

There’s not much impact involved in Hogan’s leg drop compared to other wrestler moves, as he’s carrying his weight only. Compare that to guys like Undertaker or Paul Orndorff who are carrying an extra 225-300 lbs. when performing moves like a piledriver, which should involve much more compression of the spine.

Look at the impact the spines of basketball players are subjected to with all of that running and jumping over decades. Most hold their height pretty well as they get older.
miko said on 31/May/20
I've got Hogan at 6'5/6'5.25 at his tallest.

I think he remained at his peak until around the mid 90's. He started to look a fraction shorter (6'4.75/6'5) in his NWO days, he was the same height as Scott Hall.

1999/2000 onwards his body started to fail him, I think he had a few knee surgeries and other things before his return to WWE in 2002, when he came back he looked around a flat 6'4 when he stood straight, by this point he was shorter than Scott Hall.

He had lots of problems in the 2008/2013 period, his posture was horrific and at times he could look below 6'3, it was hard to tell how tall he actually was as he could look anywhere from 6'2 to 6'4, but after his big back surgery he looks to be 6'3/6'3.25 nowadays when he stands straight.

Henry said on 28/May/20
I talk to my chiropractor all the time and the Hulkster. He said that the Hulkster's spine started curving at an accelerated rate the instant he did his first leg drop. Taking regular bumps already curves your spine and reduces your height(look up Chris Masters curved spine x-ray). The Hulkster's peak barefoot height of 6'8 9/16" was before he ever stepped into the square circle for the first time. He had already lost significant height by the mid 80s let alone the early 90s.

You’ve mentioned this story before but it doesn’t make sense. Hulk has never claimed to be 6’8 let alone 6’8 9/16”. He said he was 6’7” then came clean with 6’5” and was said to be 6’6” barefoot in his prime. As for your Chiropracror, that is his hypothesis. That’s speculation with probably less proof and reasoning than us posters here on Celebheights. He likely has never met Hogan and if he has he cant gauge his height because he was never that tall. If you see a pic with Sid, Hogan was clearly shorter than him by at least an inch and Sid recently admitted to only being 6’6” in his prime. Taker was also 1.5-2” taller than Hogan. That would’ve meant that Hogan dipped from 6’8 9/16 to 6’5 just from the time he stopped growing until the 1980 or 1990s which he didn’t

@JT: I think Hogan lost height as early as the 90s. He was a legit 6’5” maybe 6’5.25” guy going back to the 1980s. He looked 6’4” in the 90s imho. Charles Barkley looked taller by that stage and Barkley wasn’t 6’5” at his peak. I believe part of what Henry is saying about him having curvature is true but 6’8 is ridiculous. He didn’t lose 2” by then let alone 3 9/16”. Maybe he lost an inch. I believed a peak Hogan 6’5-6’5.5” all along. I never believed 6’5.5-6’6” and the evidence is mounting that he was never over the 6’5-6’5.5 with Sid’s measurement coming out. He even looked slightly shorter than Tiny Lister in some of the shots for No Holds Barred

There’s no evidence Hogan lost any height until into the 2000s.

Russell looked roughly Jerry Lawler’s height in the mid 1990s Click Here as well as in the late 1970s Click Here so he lost little if any height during the interim

Jackson Henderson, Hogan was 37 in 91 when he first stood next to Sid.

What medical procedure had he undergone by that point to lose 1.5 inches? I mean this photo was taken only 9-12 months earlier in summer of 1990 and used countless times on this page to show that Hogan was at least 6'7 Click Here

Also disagree with your assessment that he put his body through more than his fellow performers. The fact he is still alive while maybe 1/3 of the guys he worked between 1985-93 are not suggests otherwise.

Hogan rarely left his feet outside the legdrop and that would take decades to really wear down his joints. Look at Harley Race or Dynamite Kid who were in wheelchairs most of the last years of their lives. Even later performers like Foley, Austin, Edge, Lita were forced to retire in their mid 30s at the peak of their careers. Hogan was still physically able to wrestle same style he become known for right up to 2006..after that his body starting breaking down on him and by 2011 he was physically unable to work a proper match (Sting vs Hogan at Bound for Glory 2011 good example)

@Vegas: Sid’s admission to being 6’6” has killed any chance of 6’6 let alone 6’7” for Hogan. Ronster is convinced that Hogan is 6’6 or 6’7” along with a couple others but him saying or claiming he measured 6’7” by his mother is as good as me saying I measured 6’6 when I’m only 6’4”

@Canson, i must admit, prior to Sid's admission of true peak height, i always thought Hogan peak at 6'5.5, i now question whether Hogan was that peak height, let alone 6'6. As Rob has him down as, i always remember Sid being 1-2 inches taller than Hogan, when they wrestled.

I agree. I had Hogan between 6’5 and 6’5.5 peak before. I would’ve said 6’5.25”. That’s a remote possibility now but I could see the flat 6’5” now when those two were photographed together. But to what Rob said it’s unknown as to when Hogan began to lose height. Maybe he began to lose it before Sid. Hogan is 7 years older than Sid and I’ve heard of the surgeries which are much more expansive than any of the ones Sid’s reported to have had
Gman39 said on 27/May/20
Always seemed to be about the same height as Jake 'The Snake', so I think about 6'5" peak height for Hulk.

Great post.
Only a few guys I think were taller, Nash and Windham and that’s only from meeting Nash twice.
I think Animal is shorter.
I bet you’re with 1” on all of them which is a solid guess when all variables are taken in to account.
When I met Hogan a few years ago I though 6’3.5-6’4. However I have bad posture due to back surgery so even though I can stand 6’025 I probably wasn’t. I could take an inch off Hogan.
Its rare I actually stand my full height.
Again a really solid post.

RP some of those boot boosts over barefoot you estimate look to be off

Kane's boots were big but not 3 inches. Lister wore what looked like 1.5 inch working boots wrestling and Wights boots were 1.25-1.5 inch soles not 2.5 inch.

If Sid was 6'6 flat barefoot and footwear equal for everyone he was in-ring then in 91-92

Hogan was 6'4
Warrior was 6 foot
Piper was 5'11
Undertaker was 6'6

In 99-2000
Nash was 6'8
Savage was 5'10

@RP: I actually think he lost height even earlier than that. I agree with Rob that he may be a guy who lost his before other wrestlers. I don’t rule out the 6’5-6’5.5 Peak range like you said but probably in the 70s. However, I saw pics of Hogan with Barkley and he looked shorter. Barkley measured 6’4 5/8” in 1992. But if we go with peak height for Hogan, I do feel that we can safely rule out 6’6” at this stage of the game. There was absolutely no way that He was 6’6” peak next to Sid. I think 6’5.25” would be a decent start for him like you and 62B said
RP said on 26/May/20
@ Canson, I agree. 6’5.25” to 6’5.5” peak.
Possibly 6’5.5” absolute peak late 70’s into late 80’s.
6’5” by 1992.
6’4.5” by 1995.
6’4” by 2000
6’3.5” by 2005
6’3” by 2010.
This is why Bruno called him 6’5” or 6’6” in one of his earliest matches in the late 1970’s with the WWF. He described him as about 6’5” to 6’6” & over 300 lbs. even though Vince SR was trying to push a 6’8” billing for the young Hogan.
Guy Pacitto said on 25/May/20
Thats a good comparison of Sid and Hogan, thanks for sending that pic through, it still depicts about a 1' - 1.25 inch difference between them, to be honest thats the closest in height between them that i have ever seen, i still struggle to see how Hogan was ever a peak 6'6, i think around 6'5 is as high i would go for peak Hogan, no more than 6'5.25 at the very most.
Hanov said on 25/May/20
Even Robert Oberst looked taller than peak Hogan
RP said on 25/May/20
@ Rufus, yep! Sid would always do that with everyone during stare downs. It would make him appear 0.5” to 0.75” taller. Sid also wore a pretty thick chunky wrestling boot in many matches. Sid once also in an interview a few years ago, attributed his broken leg/ankle on having to wear as he put it “a heavy thick ring boot”. I truly think Sid had about a 1/2” in ring footwear advantage on Hulk Hogan & Undertaker.

@Editor Rob: so to revisit this one, do you think there’s really only 1/4” between Hogan and Sid? It looked much more than that as it was noticeable
Editor Rob
The question is whether Hogan lost some height earlier than others. I don't discount the idea entirely.
Public Enemy said on 25/May/20
That’s an excellent point Rufus. Sid always raised his head but yeah there isn’t much difference at all from the top of their heads if you exclude Sid’s weave.
Canson said on 25/May/20
@62B, Ben Bell, and RP: Thanks for your replies and I hope you enjoy your Memorial days. I have always thought along the lines of 62B that Hogan was 6’5.25”. Now with that admission from Sid about his own height, that’s very telling. There’s two variables with regards to Sid’s height. Is he just 6’6” flat? Or could he Really be as high on a normal day as 6’6.5? But I think at any rate Hogan’s peak needs some attention from Rob. 6’6” was always too high and it’s no more evident than now. As to what Ben Bell said, 6’3.5-6’4” isn’t a surprise given the fact that Alan32080 another poster here guessed him at that height too when he first met him. I’m actually one of the ones here who thinks Hogan is 6’3” or perhaps even a hair over like 6’3.25”. I didn’t always but I do now.
Rufus said on 25/May/20
The wrestling eye magazine had a photo of Hogan and Sid "nose to nose". Sid had his chin raised up really high so it's a little hard to tell but if you look at the top of there heads it does not appear to be much of a height difference between Hogan and Sid.

@Canson. 6'5.25" for peak Hulk has been my estimate for a while now. I think 6'4 3/4" is about the lowest I would guess him at peak. He definitely looked taller than my Grandfather. Some of it could have been footwear, it's not something I was paying attention to back in 1980.

Keep in mind that by the time Hulk wrestled Sid he already lost 1-1.5 inches in height. Hogan was at a peak when he wrestled Andre in Shea Stadium in 1979. All the photo comparisons are not of Hulk at his peak. Hulk really put his body through hell more than a lot of performers.

Hawk: 6’2”
Animal : 6’1.5”
Black Jack Mulligan;: 6’5”
Dan Spivey: 6’5.75”
All that said, it’s still hard to say for sure, because so many wrestlers wore so many different types of boots & footwear.
Example: Hulk Hogan looked to have worn a 1.25” wresting boot mostvof his career in the WWF (1984-1993) era and Sid looked to have worn a 1.75” wrestling boot.. Undertaker looked to have worn 1.25” wrestling boots, Andre wore 0.75” to 1” max wrestling boots, Big Show wears 2.25” to 2.5” wrestling boots, Kane wears 2.75” to 3” wrestling boots, Brett Hart wore 0.75” to 1” wrestling boots, Ric Flair wore 1.5” to 1.75” wrestling boots, Zeus wore a 2.5” logger boot, John Cena wears 1” to 1.3” sneakers, Kevin Nash wore 1” to 1.25” wrestling boots. Jake Roberts would sometimes wear 1.25” boots and other times vs very certain opponents would wear his big 2” boots. So, that’s what makes it hard to nail down wrestlers true barefoot heights. And was Sid a true FLAT 6’6” barefoot? Or was he 6’6” & change, such as 6’6 1/4” or 6’6 3/8” (like Rob suggest) hard to tell? And I’m sure it was hard for Sid to recall 100% for certain if he was measured barefoot in 1985 by The Memphis Steamboats at 6’6”, 6’6.25”...6’6.5”...etc.

Agreed RP. Even if Rob uses 6’6.25” for Sid it means 6’5” for Hogan tops. That was probably 3cm between them max. 6’5.25 peak for Hogan May be a start

I'd still go with 6'5.25 for Hogan's peak.

Today he still looks a good solid 6'3/6'3.25 when he stands straight.
Chinybobs said on 20/May/20
Billed 6-8 vs Andre. Lol. 6-5 seems more and more accurate
Ben Bell said on 20/May/20
With the Sid admission the most I could go for peak Hogan is 6’5.5

Meeting him in 2014 he was 6’3.5-6’4.
It all depends on Hogans posture, his posture is all over the place and he rarely stands straight.
Canson said on 20/May/20
@Guy Pacitto: I think he should come down to 6’5.5 to start although 6’5 is arguable. Sid is probably ok. Maybe 6’6.5 but no less

A,peak,Sid at 6'6, and Hogan at 6'6 is,not plausible, Hogan peak needs downgrading to 6'5 tops.
SeanR said on 19/May/20
Rob, Sid and Undertaker’s peak have been reduced.

Can the same be said for Hogan, I just don’t see him being the same height as Sid and within 1 inch of Taker at peak.

I can buy 6’5” or 6’5.5” at peak in the seventies but nowadays looks 6’2.5” or 6’2.75”
Editor Rob
I think it's hard to imagine Sid not having lost near an inch, so if he is still looking 6ft 5-5.5 today, maybe 6ft 6 and change was his actual measurement.

Hogan definitely seemed shorter than Sid, but then when he lost height is up for debate. A 20's Hogan wasn't the same as 30's Hogan.

@JT: Hogan’s knee is slightly bent and in that pic there isn’t that much between them even before that. They could potentially be the same after. I’m not saying Barkley isn’t taller by way of the footwear advantage Hogan has but was Hogan still 6’5” in 1995? I don’t think he was. Probably right around 6’4 if that. Barkley only measured 6’4 5/8” in his prime, which was likely his afternoon height. He wasn’t as low as 6’4 I doubt. If you’ve see the documentary the Last Dance they show closeups with Dennis Rodman and Rodman towers over him in 1998.

The rod man was 2” taller than hogan,,, so how the hell is hogan 6-6??? He’s 6-5 peak. Now 6.2-5 imo. Impossible to say he’s 6-6. Dennis was a weak 6-7 imo so hogan cannot be over 6-5 peak.

@Rampage: I can still buy Hulk being a solid 6’3” today to tell you the truth. I don’t think he’s under 6’3” really
Vegas' said on 11/May/20
6'7 or 6'7 is obviously too tall for peak Hogan but 6'4 imo is too short unless guys like Warrior, Lundgren, Bundy and some others were shorter than pretty much everyone assumes.

Absolute lowest I would buy for Hogan is 6'4 1/2 peak but that's probably pushing it.

Barkley wasn't as low as 6'4 1/2. No way.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/May/20
Rob, how likely is below 6ft3 for Hulk now?
Editor Rob
He's probably still going to be close to it, I doubt he's 6ft 2-2.5 today.
John barrett said on 9/May/20
A lot of us still think if we meet Hulk Hogan to day we meeting a guy in his 30's 320 pounds and with 24 inch arms. But to day his around 67 not far off 70 weighs about 250 has shrunk about 3 inches, two hips replaced, two knee caps replaced, nearly a dozen back surgerys and is one very luck guy he is not in a wheel chair - I think he was 6'6 and to day looks a little under 6'3.

@Roderick - I think you’re dead on. Maybe only 6’4” peak barefoot
Hulk wore lifts and custom lifted high heeled boots
Plus in his prime he was shorter than Charles Barkley who’s only 6’4.5” tops
Crypto139 said on 6/May/20
Oh, I also found out that Colin Cowherd has claimed 6'1.5" as well when looking up comments about him on this site. If he really is closer to 6'1.5" then Hogan might be even lower than I thought.
Crypto139 said on 6/May/20
6 foot 3ish makes sense, I once saw him next to Colin Cowherd, a guy that claims to be 6 foot 2, and Hogan barely looked taller than him if at all. I came back here just to say that I think he looks 6 foot 3, but it seems people already figured that out. I think Hogan's posture could be better, but he looks no lower than 190 cm I guess. Hey Rob, how tall would you say Hogan looks next to the guy that claims 6 foot 2? Also I guess you can add Colin Cowherd to the list of legit 6'2 celebs and celebs that are honest about their height. Click Here
Vegas' said on 6/May/20
Hogan himself doesn't even claim 6'8 for his peak and he is notorious for stretching the truth..

If Hogan was 6'8 in 85 with Belzer then he would be ~6'10 in cowboys. Most agree Mr T was around 5'10 peak, so 5'11 range in those shoes. There is no way 11 inches difference there Click Here
Roderick said on 4/May/20
@RONSTER No way was Hogan 6'6.5". He wasn't just half an inch shorter than Undertaker. Hogan was max 6'4.5"
RONSTER said on 2/May/20
Hi Rob, would you agree that given both Mean Gene, Jessie Ventura, and most notably Gorilla Monsson would always refer to Hogan’s height as 6’8” and close to 6’9” on many occasions that he was right around 6’6.5” barefoot. They would seem to add 2” to everyone’s heights in the 80’s. And by the time he is wrestling Sid in the early 90’s at almost 40 he was down to 6’6”, maybe a hair under which is why Sid who was very close to 6’8” barefoot was 1-2” taller.
Editor Rob
It was common to inflate guys like Hogan towards 6ft 8
Big ed said on 1/May/20
Henry good pictures I think 6'9 is to high he was billed 6'8 he said himself his tallest was 6'7 so debunks that straight away. He may have been 6'6 it's hard to call looks a couple of inches taller than Jake Roberts which would put him 6'6.5 range yet on the same token looks a couple of inches shorter than 6'7 sid which puts him in the 6'5 range I personally put him around 6'5.5" peak
6'4 and a half leperchaun said on 1/May/20
6'9'' barefoot. haha that's such a lie. Hogan seemed 6'3'' next to Mr. T. Hogan would always wear heels and a hat do make himself appear close to 6'8'' or 6'9''. 6'3'' peak height and today 6'1'' range.

I’m all for realistic heights but I’ve never seen Hulk look with 2” of anyone legit 6’7.
I can’t find a photo anywhere of him dwarfing Ferrigno or any links to the show they were apparently both on.
The only reference to the show I’ve heard has been from Hogan.
I’d say he as 6’6 at the most peak height. Likely a hair under. He looks taller than legit 6’5 guys but slightly under 6’6 people.
Today I’d say at the least 6’2, the most 6’4. Very hard to tell with his knees and posture.

Gene wasn't a wrestler so really shouldn't have lost height by 1995 when he would have been 52?
UndertakerFrank said on 7/Apr/20
Ferrigno was listed @ 6ft5 I would the say he was about 6ft 3 He was on King Of Queens and the Black actor on the Show was 6ft 5 and he had a couple inches on Lou Also Lou was on Night Court many years ago and hes was shorter than John Larroquet who was about 6ft 4!!
Brian Frang said on 5/Apr/20
Hulk Hogan was definitely 6'7" at his peak. The entire reason that he started being called "Hulk" is that he dwarfed the 6'5" Lou Ferrigno in his prime. Like, if you look at old photos, Bollea is noticeably larger.
viper said on 5/Apr/20
Barkley can look at least 6-5.

It may have to do with wearing the largest 1.5 inch plus shoes plus inserts.
viper said on 5/Apr/20
I'd bet good money he was at least 6-5 peak.
J. B said on 5/Apr/20
@public Enemy - did read a report on Hogan that he said at Wrestlemania 3 Andrea was way over the 500 pounds that when walking around inside the ring he was sinking into the floor by an inch or more - So Andre was another inch or more taller then Hogan.
Canson said on 4/Apr/20
@Space: I’m with you that he wasn’t 6’6” in his prime except maybe out of bed. I could buy 6’5” flat but lower looks odd. Barkley has that uncanny ability to make people look shorter than they are at times!!
Space said on 3/Apr/20
@ canson

You’re basically proving my point that Hogan was 6’4 5/8” in his prime because he wasn’t any taller than Barkley.

I’m said I’ll buy Hogan at 6’5.25” because everyone’s so hung up on him being 6’6” peak, but I truly only think he was a weak 6’5” peak and 6’2.75” max today.
Big ed said on 3/Apr/20
He actually looked 6'7 next to Ali trump and McMahon if there in the 6'2-3" range or lowest 6'6 but then with lister he looks about 6'5.5" I can't give him lower peak to be fair. Andre was alot taller than Hogan even the wm3 picture if you imagine tilting hogans chin down were it should be he'd be at Andres nose follow the line into Andres head there's at least 6" in the difference possibly 7" considering the size of he's head peak Andre had Hogan easy 7-8" I know it doesn't look it but I've seen all types of photos and height is very deceiving look at your own photos on your phone youll realize it youll probably even come across some1 slightly shorter than you an youll look shorter in a picture
Canson said on 3/Apr/20
@Ben Bell: those are decent estimates overall. I doubt he’s higher than that though. Probably a bit less on both
Ben Bell said on 2/Apr/20
6’5.5 Barefoot peak
6’3.5 barefoot today.
Such a strange bodily structure due to decades or steroids and injuries.
Hard to guess peak arms size. I met him in 2014 and his arms were bigger than I expected.
I’d guess peak 22” because he had those big triceps, when I met him I’d say 19”-20”. Just an all over bigger guy than I expected.
Met lots of wrestler who had less mass, Hogan was actually bigger. Looked a solid 280lbs. Super thick wrists, massive feet and head.
I bet he was a sight in 88.
Meeting guys like Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Flair etc were all smaller and slimmer than I expected. Hogan was just built differently, very much like Scott Hall. Big frame with wide shoulders.
Public Enemy said on 2/Apr/20
Another pic with Andre. No lifts. Not a great angle but Hogan is not dwarfed by Andre. Looks 6’5.5 there. I wonder if a young Hogan in his twenties could have been 6’6 now?

__________________________________

So I pasted this into my paint program and blew it up and zoomed in on their feet. Hulk definitely has the footwear advantage. It got a little grainy, but he for sure had the bigger heal and thicker sole. Its also looked like a possible small internal lift. I would say Hulk barefoot at this time would have been closer to 6'5"and Andre evening would have been in the 6'10" range. Maybe still a little over 6'10" at the time this picture was taken.

The peak height of Hulk Hogan should be considered not over his 45 years, because of his heavy body damage. Peak between 196 and 198, but I don't think he's less than 6'3" by now.

You could argue 6'5 range peak, but come on, he was easily 6'5, nothing under it. Nowhere near 24 inch pythons though. Brian Shaw is much bigger than Hulk ever was, 100 pounds + heavier and only has 23 inch arms before a workout. I'd say Hulk was nearer 20, maybe 21 peak. Which is still massive.
Space said on 11/Mar/20
The fact that people think Hogan was 6’6”-6’6.5” in his prime is crazy.

Look at Hogan standing next to 6’7.5” Kevin Love, there’s no way Hogan was almost Kevin Loves height at one point.

Sorry guys, but Hogan was no taller than 6'5" but I would say even 6'4.75.
Sid, on this site, has a peak height of 6'6"3/4. I think he was more like 6'6.5.

Now even if Sid was really 200cm at his peak, he had no less than 1.5 inches on Hogan. So Hogan at 6'6" its just wrong.

But as I said in my opinion Sid was max 199cm. Today him and Taker are in the same boat, they are shorter by at least 1 inch

from 2015 so not sure if height loss has become more pronounced since but if Snoop is the 6’3.75 Rob lists him Hogan looks his listing. 2cm. He wouldn’t be as low as 6’2” then. The real question is was Snoop a legit 6’4” in his prime or more like 6’3.5? Rob lists him at 6’3.75 but the argument can be made for all three as he appeared taller than Harden in a pic (likely camera advantage) but around 3 cm maybe even 1.5” or 1.75 shorter than Kobe Bryant in 2016. If Snoop were a legit 6’4 it would make Hogan closer to what Alan32080 guessed him in person (even before we determine whether or not he is standing his tallest).

@62B: I think “Strong 6’5” range may fit. Meaning 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon height. But 6’5.75/6’5 is possible too. Today 6’2.75-6’3.25 imho
62B said on 13/Feb/20
@ Canson. I think most evidence (pictures, video's, personal sightings)put Hulk in the solid 6'5 range peak. I think the times he looked closer to 6'6" (like the early DiBiase footage) he probably has a little bit of padding in the soles of his boots. Today he looks just 6'2-6'2 1/2" most of the time to me, but would not be overly surprised if he still touched 6'3" either.
Riccardo 5'7 said on 13/Feb/20
With all the rispect but this 6'6" listing still for Hogan's peak it's funny.
This man was never 6'6" barefoot and in the afternoon also.
He was 2 inches shorter than Undertaker, who was max 6'7". This is in 1991.
He wore lifts it seems, for sure he did when he was in gear.

6'4"3/4 peak and 6'2"3/4 today wich would be a big height loss.
He is for sure shorter than guys like snoop dog and not only by 0.5

6-5 peak imo. Sid looks 1.5 to 2” taller. Bull claim 6-8 for hogan.
Canson said on 28/Jan/20
@Big Ed: that’s my guess for Hogan is around a little over 6’5”. Peak. I could buy 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon height
Canson said on 27/Jan/20
@Vegas: you’re right and that to me also 86s the 6’6 or higher. I’d say Sid was more 6’6.5-.75 range max but Hogan could still be a solid 6’5 Or 6’5.25 as the difference At times looked 1.5” too
Big ed said on 26/Jan/20
Why would Hogan be 6'8 or 6'9 ever when he said himself his tallest was 6'7 which I'd say he exaggerates all the time his best friend ed Leslie said he trained with Terry and they where measured in the gym and Hogan was slightly above 6'5 and he was nearly 6'3 Hogan was 285lbs and he was 240
RONSTER said on 25/Jan/20
Henry, Hogan was 6’9” but that was in his wrestling boots. He was 6’7” barefoot as he said himself, perhaps a shade less but barely under 6’7” if at all before loosing height which did start early for him. You are however no further off the truth than those who say he was never more than 6’5-5.5”, that’s 1.5” under and Henry is the same amount over.
Vegas' said on 25/Jan/20
Jackson Rogers, that's Hogan in 1979 Click Here

Sid next to same interviewer Lance Russell in 95, obvious Sid is couple of inches taller than Hogan when he stands up at 2 minutes 30 Click Here

Having watched Hogan since mid 80s now very little evidence I can see you could argue he lost height in 70s/80s.

Hogan's peak height was in the mid to late 1970s
I've had multiple conversations with my chiropractor about Hulk Hogan.
He always says that his spine curving started in the 1970s.
Peak 1970s Hogan was at least 6,8 1/4" barefoot and probably over 6'9" with a good 8+ hours of sleep.
------------------------------

Then Hulk lost about 3" from the late 70's to early the early 80's, because he was nowhere near 6'8" when I saw him in 1980
Canson said on 24/Jan/20
@Miko: I could see about 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon and 6’5 extreme low (on a rare occasion). I think if Rob lowered him to 6’5.5 it would fit well enough being this is based on lunchtime and he would conceivably be 6’5 3/8” by that logic give or take. Even if it’s over by a hair that’s only max 1/4” or 1/3”. I doubt his prime was under 6’5” or over 6’5.5

Hogan at 6'3/6'4 prime puts Andre the Giant at 6'8 range...

Hulk was 6'5/6'5.25 at his tallest, and is 6'3/6'3.25 today when he stands fully straight.

Sid was close to 6'7, Hulk mostly looked 1.5' shorter than him. Sid was Undertaker range and not that much shorter (maybe 2 inches) than 6'9/6'9.5 Kevin Nash.

@Harry Sachs

Hogan was losing height in 1980. All the pictures where Hulk is compared to guys like Sid and the Undertaker are in the late 80s and early 90s. Hulk wrestled André the Giant in 1979 in Shea Stadium so was already putting his body through wear and tear and suffered from scoliosis. He already lost an inch from 6’6 at his peak in the 70s to 6’5 in the mid 80s. Then the leg drop and two dozen knee, hip and back surgeries to now puts him at 6’3 today. I wonder if the latest fusion surgery will restore an inch of his height as it has the potential maybe.

Hogan was never 6’6” afternoon height. 6’5-6’5.5 range max. I do agree he was around 6’5 flat max in the mid to late 80s maybe even dipping under later in the day by late 80s. By the 90s he was 6’4 range and even today I doubt he dips much under 6’3 if even that low. Possibly 6’2.75-6’3.25 range afternoon and 6’3.5-6’4 out of bed
Canson said on 21/Jan/20
@Roderick: possible Sid was 6’6.5-.75 and that Hogan was 6’5 or 6’4.75 when that was taken. Hogan likely wasn’t peak. I remember Hogan and Barkley and Barkley at 6’4 5/8 was taller
Canson said on 21/Jan/20
@Jackson Adams: Hogan was 6’5-6’5.5 at his peak height. Sid the more I see it was 199-200 range. He could even look his listing at times. I underestimated him at times
David Banner said on 18/Jan/20
@miko

It’s quite possible. He always wore lifts - he was never over 6’4” barefoot that’s for certain
Big ed said on 18/Jan/20
I said practically the same height its still less than 1" which is ridiculous either Hogan peak should go down or sid go up. taker has always stood by he was legit 6'8 so sid 6'7 Hogan around 6'5.5
Roderick said on 18/Jan/20
Sid at 6'6.5" and Hogan at 6'4.5" makes sense to me.
Jackson Adams said on 17/Jan/20
@Canson

Yes Hogan was 6’5 versus Sid but Hogan was 15 years past his peak height by that point.
miko said on 17/Jan/20
More chance of Elvis still being alive than a 6'3 peak Hogan. Nice troll.
Canson said on 16/Jan/20
Sid and Hogan aren’t the same here. Rob has Sid 6’6.75 and Hogan 6’6”. The difference between them wasn’t 2” though. Going off afternoon heights, Sid was around 6’6.5 peak height Hogan 6’5.25. Lower case 6’5, and higher case which is a stretch 6’5.5”

Ye I don't understand how you can have sid peak and Hogan practically the same sid had 2" on Hogan at wm8 sid 6'7 Hogan 6'5
Bob McLane said on 14/Jan/20
Fascinating site and great work! A close friend of mine in HS was a legit 6'4. He worshiped Hogan at the peak of Hulkamania. 1988 was the start of our Senior year in HS. His father took him to a Hulk Hogan meet and greet in Philadelphia. My buddy was shocked when standing face to face with Hogan he noticed he was clearly taller than the Hulkster. He brought pictures to school and sure enough he looked at least and inch taller than Hulk.
Canson said on 13/Jan/20
He wasn’t even 6’5.75 afternoon height. Willing to bet at best 6’5.25/.5 peak
Caldonio said on 11/Jan/20
Not over 6-6 peak. All bull with wwf. 6.5-75 peak now 6-3 or under maybe.

J.B. Hogan looked taller than Hillbilly Jim back in the 80's I dont know what Jim was talking about & Jim was never 6ft 7 !! These guys always Lie
Canson said on 10/Jan/20
@Harry Sachs: exactly
J. B said on 9/Jan/20
Just watched a shoot interview with WWF wrestler from the 1980's Hill Billy Jim which you will find on YouTube By Hannibal TV - at the end Jim says he was 6'7 and he was just little bit Taller then Hogan in the 80's and they talk about how he had shrunk a bit in recent years. Putting Hogan around the 6'6 mark....
Harry Sachs said on 8/Jan/20
According to the wanna be experts here. Hulk Hogan was 6'6 at his peak. They also said Sid Vicious was 6'6 at his peak then explain to me these pictures. Click Here Click Here Hulk Hogan is clearly at least 1 inch if not shorter than Sid. These pictures are from 1992 so you can't say Hulk Hogan was losing height yet.
Canson said on 4/Jan/20
@62B: either mid or low seen likely. Low would put him at 6’5 in the afternoon which is his low but 6’4.75 on a rarer day where he loses more than average at an extreme (ultimate low). Mid would be normally closing the day 6’5.25 which I also believe to be the case
62B said on 1/Jan/20
Canson said on 27/Dec/19

My personal opinion is that he fits into one of these three or somewhere in between the low and high end. I consider the afternoon height to be someone’s true height and Rob may use the afternoon or 1/8” above the afternoon as a lunchtime height

High end:
Out of bed 6’6.25
Afternoon 6’5.5
Extreme low 6’5.25

Mid
Out of bed 6’6
Afternoon 6’5.25
Extreme 6’5

Low end
Out of bed 6’5.75
Afternoon 6’5
Extreme 6’4.75

Today

Out of bed 6’3.5 (low) 6’4 (upper end)
Afternoon 6’2.75 (a bit low but still a slim possibility) and 6’3.25 is upper end but still possible

With that said, I could see the mid as a really good possibility the same as my buddy. I think a downgrade for his peak to 6’5.5 would be a very good start. If anything 6’5.75 would be a decent start

Your mid guess seems the most likely to me.

Jake the same height as Hulk? Sorry but there is no chance in hell he was Hogan’s height in 1987. Jake was a strong 6’5” plus barefoot yes, and Hogan was still 2” or very close to it taller. Same footwear, same posture, same distance and angle prices Hogan was way over 6’6” barefoot here.

Click Here

But Ronster, in that picture Hogan is heavily favored meaning much closer to the camera
Canson said on 27/Dec/19
@RP: Thanks! I based mine off a guy who would probably lose just 3/4” or 2 cm as I have a friend who’s similar to that and is 6’5.25 6’6 out of bed but Rob mentioned before that some lose a full inch.

My personal opinion is that he fits into one of these three or somewhere in between the low and high end. I consider the afternoon height to be someone’s true height and Rob may use the afternoon or 1/8” above the afternoon as a lunchtime height

High end:
Out of bed 6’6.25
Afternoon 6’5.5
Extreme low 6’5.25

Mid
Out of bed 6’6
Afternoon 6’5.25
Extreme 6’5

Low end
Out of bed 6’5.75
Afternoon 6’5
Extreme 6’4.75

Today

Out of bed 6’3.5 (low) 6’4 (upper end)
Afternoon 6’2.75 (a bit low but still a slim possibility) and 6’3.25 is upper end but still possible

With that said, I could see the mid as a really good possibility the same as my buddy. I think a downgrade for his peak to 6’5.5 would be a very good start. If anything 6’5.75 would be a decent start
