Sid may have been a hair over 6’6 peak as he claimed. I doubt Hogan closed the day out at 6’6” flat but as a morning height it’s a good possibility. 6’5.5” was a reliable estimate for his prime as is 6’5.25”. Sid likely had a good 2cm maybe 1”
Soda machine said on 20/Jan/21
He was at least 1” inch shorter than Sid (6-6,1/4). Imo he was 6-5 peak. Now 6-2.5. 6-8 wwf listing is so crazy lol

Hogan and John Cena 7 years ago. Hogan has about 1" on 6'0"-6'0.5" Cena and that was 7 years ago. He's at best 6'2" today:

6'3" or 6'4" max peak height. Looking back at his film No Holds Barred, he's shorter than Zeus, (R.I.P) who was really 6'5".He was NEVER 6'7!

When did his billing go from 6'8 to 6'7
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 17/Jan/21
197 max peak, 190 max current

I reckon 197 peak likelier than 198,
Pdoggy said on 15/Jan/21
Sid was billed 6'9 wore thick soled black lifted boots to make him appear taller than Hogan. Reality he wasn't. They both peaked at 6'6
James B 172cm said on 15/Jan/21
maybe sid was wearing lifts?
Big ed said on 12/Jan/21
If he was 6'4.5 early 90s how was he clearly taller than jake Roberts. Would make jake 6'2.5 or 6'3 early 90s doesn't add up I think sid must have been 6'7 hogan 6'5.5"
Vincent Caleb said on 12/Jan/21
Agree with slim again, current is around 6’2 3/4”.
James B 172cm said on 8/Jan/21
rob you did say yourself that hogan could look near 2 inches shorter than sid which would make Hogan 6'4.25 in the early 90s surely?
Editor Rob
6ft 4.5 range maybe
slim 6'1 said on 8/Jan/21
Could’ve shrunk to 189.5-190cm currently
Harry Sachs said on 6/Jan/21
Here is the video from the early 1990s with Hulk Hogan and Sid Vicious. Click Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hogan peak was maybe 6'4 or slightly above it.
Linke said on 3/Jan/21
Rob, any guess on his son? He's a prime candidate to be added in Tall father, short son category. Looks 5'11 to me.
Editor Rob
yeah he could be as short as 5ft 11
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@James B: likely a result of his Cowboy boots. Tiny Lister said he and Hulk were the same height. My guess is Hulk likely just had a minimal advantage which was undetectable so maybe 6’5 1/4-3/8 or Tiny may have been 6’5-6’5 1/8 range. I’d say 6’5 for Lister and 6’5.25 for Hogan. But Hogan would be 6’6 out of bed in his prime easily
Hill1968 said on 2/Jan/21
Prime around 6ft6 and today 6ft2.5
Vincent Caleb said on 2/Jan/21
6’5.5” peak is very possible, and 6’3” now. 6’2.75” is possible too.
Soace said on 1/Jan/21
His peak I doubt was over 6’5”.

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

@Gracelio if you look it’s using the Kayfabe height and weight. I know Roddenberry Piper was billed 6’2 230

Roddy was never 6ft 2 & I dont Believe Jessie was ever 6ft 4 too be Honest

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

Click Here

Using a poor picture = tailoring to fit narrative

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

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

Hogan is shorter there next to T than a 6'7 guy I know next to people who are 5'10...
Canson said on 24/Nov/20
I think 6’5.5 is the catch all. Much better than 6’6 but it’s very much arguable he was a hair over 6’5”
J2Frenzy said on 24/Nov/20
@Henry he’s barely at the nose of 6’11 Andre and Dre’s head is almost certainly a foot. Barely puts him at 6’5
Henry said on 23/Nov/20
Here's the photo of the Hulkster giving the appearance of being a 7 footer even though he's was really 6'8 9/16" barefoot mid day.

The Hulkster more than doubled the height difference between Beltzer and Howard Stern and almost doubled the height difference between Trump and Howard Stern.
RP said on 23/Nov/20
@ Canson,
I can totally buy an afternoon 6’1.5” Dumars. If his old listed Barefoot height of 6’2” was a morning measurement. That absolutely would then make sense. I bet that was the case. Dumars was likely a strong 6’2” morning & 6’1.5”-ish afternoon-evening. Isiah’s 6’0” measurement, was also likely a morning measurement.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: I think 6’5:5 may be a fair compromise for Hogan’s peak especially being Sid was clearly taller (6’6.25)
Big King said on 22/Nov/20
It is really interesting to note that both, Hulk Hogan and David Prowse who played Darth Vader stood around 6'6" in their younger days. Both were having surgeries and went down to about 6'3" and both claimed their height one time as 6'7" before their surgeries. Check out the page of David Prowse here on CelebHeights. He has actually the same story as Hogan.

In both pictures Hogan is standing straight and difference is clearly visible.
Duhon said on 21/Nov/20
How much height did these two guys lose respectively from their primes? Click Here
Editor Rob
if anybody ever finds the advert Hogan did with Ferrigno, it would be interesting as they might be nearer peak height...

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

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

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

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

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

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

Click Here

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

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

Peak: 6’5-6’5.5 range
Current: I will say that there is a chance he could be as high as 6’3.25” still (6’4 out of bed) but there’s an equal chance that he’s 6’3 flat and 6’3.75 out of bed (his listing). And a chance that he’s even 6’3.5 out of bed and 6’2.75 afternoon height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Nov/20
@VIncent
Agreed 100%. Rob's a very good height guesser, and I'm not saying this because he's the editor. He's been doing this for at least over 16 years now, maybe even longer. If he adds a listing, chances are that it wouldn't be further than 1" from the actual celeb's height. The vast majority of his listings, I'd agree within 1/2" or 3/4" at worst, but there are a few exceptions like Boris Kodjoe (listed 6'4" but I have 6'3"), Shawne Merriman (especially when he was listed at a ridiculous 6'4" despite being measured 6'2 3/8"), and like you said, Lindsay Hayward (back when she was listed 6'9" peak and 6'8.25" current) and Quinton Aaron (listed 6'8" but I have 6'6.5"), and maybe Charlotte Flair (listed 5'9" but I have at 5'8"). Those are probably the only celebs whom I thought Rob listed over an inch too high.
Canson said on 16/Nov/20
@Vincent: yea Rob wouldn’t underlist by 3” or over list by 3”. I could see where he’s off by an inch on some guys but with Hogan it was more that he couldn’t determine when he began losing height. I think Hogan generally looks a peak height of 195-197 range. I could see a much more convincing argument for 6’5.5-6’6 (which I don’t think he was) before 6’3. I saw where J2Frenzy mentioned the article where he was caught up with steroids and he was listed 6’5 then one I posted years back he admitted to being 6’5” then Tiny Lister said he was 6’5”. I think what Christian, Edward, RP, etc have said with 6’5.25 may be his afternoon. I could see an argument for 1/4” less or higher at times tho
Editor Rob
Hogan definitely looked shorter than Tiny...however, whether their footwear was identical.
Pdoggy said on 16/Nov/20
Just checking to make sure I am not missing something. We determine height when someone is standing straight at their peak and to THE TOP OF THEIR HEAD!!

Correct??
Vincent Caleb said on 16/Nov/20
There is no way Rob would be over estimating Hogan by 3 inches. I don’t always agree with his estimates, but with the amount of time he has spent researching and years he has dedicated to finding out the true estimates, there is just now way. I have only disagreed with him for over 1 inch is on Lindsay Kay Hayward, Quinton Aaron, and Winston James Francis. And even then it was barely over an inch. 3 whole inches though? No way.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy: interesting! Yea I remember you mentioning that now that you say it
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
@Canson the book I mentioned on Kevin Nash’s page details the steroid scandals, and Hulk Hogan actually got fired because he was the biggest name involved. That same book calls Hogan (in his prime) “a six-foot-five gentle giant of a man with twenty-two inch arms and a comic book cleft chin”
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy and Vincent: Agreed! He did use roids. I remember in that era Everyone did though. Ultimate Warrior (RIP) really really used them
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
@Vincent I don’t know how to just bulk in muscle because that kinda just happened as I grew. BTW I checked Dennis’s listing on this site and if it’s accurate the Hogan looks 6’5, but it’s not impossible he’d lost his first half inch by then
Vincent Caleb said on 14/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy: I thought definitely more than an inch since Dennis was dropping posture, but hogan wasn’t even at his peak. Also, this is unrelated, but I was just wondering what you thought the best Calorie increase would be for me to do a bulk if I am eating 2750 calories currently? I have a hard time putting on a lot of muscle on my frame, and I really don’t know how much to increase my calories by.
J2Frenzy said on 14/Nov/20
Hogan’s a very tall, former steroid abuser, is 67 years old, wrestled for 30+ years and was 300 pounds at his peak. He’s definitely lost a bit
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb: he has called several people trolls and said other stuff here and it makes no sense. Then he will call someone a downgrader on a page such as Yao’s or Lebron’s when he’s making them taller than Rob lists them, then turn right around and call them a fanboy on the pages where he guesses someone 2-3” shorter than Rob lists them. And he calls them fanboys even when they guess the celeb shorter than Rob lists him but taller than he does such as Hulk Hogan where virtually nobody here guesses him to be a full 6’6”. Most of us are set on 6’5 to 6’5.5 range yet he’s making the egregiously low guess of 6’3”. It’s very inconsistent and very silly being he’s calling someone who guesses against what he estimates, (not what Rob lists them) as trolls. I really don’t see how you can call someone a fanboy when they estimate below Rob and a downgrader when they guess around Rob’s listings for Yao and Lebron. The one constant is that he is always completely alone on all of his guesses with the exception of Lebron simply because the ones guessing Lebron’s height at 6’8.5 or 6’9” are completely clueless themselves. There have been maybe 2 or 3. And true to form, just like you said, he cherry picked one horrible picture of Lebron with Enes Kanter yet he ignores the ones where everyone stands in a straight line here (in 2008 when he was fully grown) and in 2012 where they are side by side. The 2008 pic is mostly tallest to shortest with a couple exceptions (Howard/Bosh and Kidd/Wade) that should be flip flopped but it’s pretty obvious that these are exceptions as Wade clearly looks taller than Kidd and Bosh clearly looks taller than Howard.

Click Here

Clearly Love is taller than Lebron above and so is Durant and is barely taller than Carmelo who I have met in person and stood next to. Melo is at most 2” taller than I am. He’s what Rob lists him. Also he’s shorter than Blake Griffin and at least 4” shorter than 6’11” range Tyson Chandler

This on top of the fact that he’s on record saying “Rob uses the tallest measurement throughout the day” for Lebron then turning around and saying it is averaged out and that Sun Ming Ming is less because of the averages. So that’s what I’m talking about with inconsistency. Then he never even answers back with a coherent answer when you challenge him. It’s that you are delusional, out of touch or some other insult. The standard is afternoon or lunchtime. They don’t vary much. But it varies depending on his narrative and that’s evident.

@Editor Rob: yea his height is nearer 6’3” today but despite the peak height being debatable it surely wasn’t anything higher than what you have him listed here. The debate really is anywhere in the 6’5-6’6 range being Undertaker was 6’7 and taller Sid was 6’6 and still taller
J2Frenzy said on 11/Nov/20
@Henry so you’re saying Hogan’s peak was 6’8.5+. If that’s the case Andre must’ve been 7’2 at least. See, it doesn’t add up
Henry said on 11/Nov/20
Rob, The Hulkster is looking extremely tall next to Mick Foley. He has better posture than usual(though his knees are still bent) and is looking 6'4" barefoot. Mick Foley is closer to the camera and has a huge camera angle advantage.

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

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

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

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

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

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

So It’s hard to see a solid 6’6” peak height but 6’5.5” isn’t as hard to see. Anything too much under 6’5” (I wouldn’t be completely surprised if he were maybe 195cm but not likely) can safely be ruled out and anything over 6’5.5 (6’6” is a stretch) can be ruled out. 6’5-6’6” range should be the sweet spot being he would measure 6’6 out of bed with ease
David Banner said on 29/Oct/20

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

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

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

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

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

Rob needs to get on the stick and upgrade him back to his rightful height before he faces Consequences and repercussions!!!! 😂 😂 😂
Canson said on 15/Oct/20

With the Rock and Kane, Hogan isn’t anything under 6’3” and that’s a more recent Hogan after he had lost height from his peak. If he’s any lower it’s maybe 6’2.75 and that’s even more recent but I’ll stick to Rob’s listing because he does not have good posture. Alan32080 has claimed to meet Hogan several times within the last 2 years and said he’s over 6’3” still. He estimated 6’3.25-.5 and said 6’3.5ish midday. He also said that Hogan said the same as he has on record that he had vertebrae removed. A couple other posters said he looked 6’3.5 to them as well and that wasn’t 30-40 years ago, it was recent

Then there is Kane who everyone here agrees was at least 6’7” in his prime. Arguably he was 6’7.5 or 6’7.25 worst case. Vegas did say he looked a solid 6’7” in 2004 but he may have lost a fraction from his peak. That’s not much if he was only 6’7.25 peak, especially for a wrestler. Hyper (formerly known as Dream) met Kane and said he looked around 6’7”. Maybe he’s 6’6.5 today but that’s expected being he’s taken the beatings he has. Kane is not 6” taller than Hogan. That is max a 4” difference. So by deduction if Hogan was really only 6’3 peak he wouldn’t be 6’1 today he would still be his peak height which he’s clearly not, a peak Hogan looked noticeably taller than Hogan would in the mid 2010s or today. That leads us to one conclusion. That is Hogan was at least 6’5 range (arguably as high as 6’5.5) in his prime and is still about what Rob lists him today being he looks it with Kane and with the Rock who is shorter than him. A friend of mine had met Rock within the last few years and said he’s 6’2 range. Hogan next to Peyton Manning is expected to be shorter. A peak Manning was essentially the same size as a peak Hogan if not maybe even a hair shorter than what Hogan was. Hogan was nowhere near his peak height in the picture with Peyton. He was probably 20 years past it
Canson said on 15/Oct/20
@James B: he could pull off looking 6’2 to some just by way of posture but i could see 6’2.75-6’3.25 range still
James B 172c, said on 14/Oct/20
Rob 6’2.75 today maybe?
Editor Rob
Maybe getting to a stage he could measure that.
Canson said on 14/Oct/20
So we have:

Peak:

A) 6’5.75 out of bed 6’5 afternoon
B) 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon
C) 6’6.25-.5 out of bed 6’5.5 afternoon
D) 6’5.5 out of bed 6’4.75 afternoon
E) 6’6.75 out of bed 6’5.75 afternoon

I think any of those would be possible but with A-C (specifically B and C perhaps) being the most realistic in his prime. D looks too low E too high

Today

A) 6’4.25 out of bed 6’3.5 afternoon
B) 6’4 out of bed 6’3.25 afternoon
C) 6’3.75 out of bed 6’3 afternoon
D) 6’3.5 out of bed 6’2.75 afternoon
E) 6’3.25 out of bed 6’2.5 afternoon

B to D look the most realistic. Possible he’s under listed by maybe 1/4” or overlisted (going off an afternoon height by 1/4”). A and E look less likely

Saying Hogan “can claim whatever he wants” and disregarding Yao’s claim, But that Lebron is 6’8.5/6’9” because he “was measured at” insinuates that he has an agenda. A 6’1” Hogan is laughing gas and is a troll guess. Funny part is Rob has deleted troll comments before but a 6’1” Hogan takes the cake. Hogan is still your height today. Hogan must be impressive if he’s 6’3” and pulls off looking 195-197 range

@Julian: that’s also coming from someone who thinks everyone is taller than they are and he says 6’5.75 for peak Hogan which is also not “likely” to be within realms. I have the same range you do 6’5-6’5.5” and I think 6’5” flat is far more likely than 6’5.75”.

Willes190 said on 30/Sep/20
Hogan was likely around 197.5cm at his tallest, he could even have been 198cm. A lot of people probably haven’t seen Hogan in his younger days, but instead judge him at the “height” of his career when he had already lost height. I don’t blame them for it, since almost all footage available of Hogan is after he began to loose height.
6'3 Julian said on 30/Sep/20
Hogan be 6’6-7 (you presumably think he’s 6’6.5 in boots) is easy to understand, but also ridiculous. How is he gonna wrestle in 3.5 inch boots? Absolute worst case he was 6’5 flat and probably 6’5.5
Canson said on 29/Sep/20
So we have two extremes. One person saying Hogan was 6’9” peak and the other saying 6’3” peak. Then many in the middle. 6’5 and 6’6” range or just shy of 6’5 and just over 6’6”.
Canson said on 29/Sep/20
RONSTER said on 23/Sep/20
I agree with Rob, he was over 6’6” peak. His mom measured him barefoot at 6’7” in his late 20’s, but likely he was 6’6.5” and she rounded up. Hogan easily looked and was that height before the leg drops started taking their toll, and he would have them been 6’8” or a bit more in his boots.

Rob never said he was over 6’6” in his prime. He has said before he was at most 6’6” and that he only gave him that listing because he wasn’t sure as to when his height loss began
Editor Rob
I think it was a little bit of humour from Ronster ;)
Canson said on 29/Sep/20
If you see the video here there is no way Hogan was 6’3 in front of Sid. That wasn’t even a peak Hogan and he was still over 6’4 if Sid is a hair over 6’6”. Is he 6’3” today? Perhaps and maybe even a hair over 6’3” still but not in his prime.

@ Rob.
Belzer also in a 1990 TV interview with Roy Firestone also referred to Hulk Hogan as being 6’8” or 6’9” & 329 lbs in 1985, when referencing his lawsuits vs WWF, Hulk Hogan, Vince McMahon & Mr. T. And yes, he said then when Hulk Hogan would enter a room, he was so huge that he walked like a guy riding a Rhino 🤣🤣🤣
RP said on 24/Sep/20
Rob is right, I believe the year was 1990... The WWF was doing something over in Germany. Or Hogan may have even been over there promoting a movie. He was doing an interview on a German talk show, and Hulkster told the interviewer that he was 6’6”. Also, back in the day a lot of 6’5” wrestlers were getting billed at 6’8”. Two quick examples are Black Jack Mulligan & Hulk Hogan. Bruiser Brody was also often billed @ 6’8”. Also, Scott was once billed @ 6’8” & 290 lbs by the AWA.

I'm sure Hogan said at age 12 he was 6ft and 190 something pounds.
miko said on 22/Sep/20
I can buy Hogan at around 6'7 in his cowboy boots in the mid 80's.

His cowboy boots weren't huge and looked to be 1.75/2' range. Which when you think about it would only give around half an inch or slightly more over a conventional dress shoe.
Canson said on 22/Sep/20
The other thing to remember is that guys like Scott Hall etc were similar in height with Hulk. All were listed around 6’7” or so while Hogan has the occasional 6’8”. They wouldn’t overlist Hogan by 5” if he were really 6’3”. The only one who was severely over listed was Andre the Giant who got 6”. Maybe he was closer to 6’11 peak height
Editor Rob
Hogan has been billed as 6ft 6 before and claimed it too at one stage.
Canson said on 21/Sep/20
Lol lifts in his boots 😂 if anything that would have made him 6’8” in his peak like he was once listed. He was 6’7” ish in his normal wrestling boot without a lift. Worst case 6’6.5”. That aligns with a 6’5” barefoot height.

In the late 70s Hulk said he was bigger than Lou Ferigno at the same time in both height and weight (hence his wrestling name) do we think that is correct?

Absolutely. Likely at least 1.5” taller I’ll say that much. I have Louie as 191-192 range peak (maybe 6’3.5) and Hulk minimum 6’5 if not 6’5.25” both are afternoon heights

@JT: Yes, you´re right, I didn´t put that into perspective. André´s cowboy boots were approximately 15,5 inches long. That would be too big for Hogan´s boots. A size 12 would be a european size 45, very common for a man of Hogan´s height. I myself have pretty big feet for my height, wearing a european size 48,5. I have measured my biggest shoes, some Lowa boots and they are around 13,6 inches OUTSIDE length.

Here are Dustin Rhodes´s ring cowboy boots who was near Hogan´s height and they are 16 inches high and 12,5 inches long.

@ JT @ HADS185
About 13 or 14 years ago on an episode of Hogan knows Best, his wife at the time Linda Bollea ...was holding up a pair of Terry’s Nikes talking about how bad they smelled... and she said they were a size 14.5. And she was looking inside them, as she was saying it.
In another completely different episode, she also referred to Young Terry as being 6’5” & 300 lbs when they first met. I do believe she said it was 1981 or 1982. She was talking about how this huge 6 foot 5 inch, 300 ound blonde guy comes up to me flirting at the night club. Take that for what you will, coming from a woman who at the time had been married to him for almost 25 years.

As we have the height of the boots now, is anyone able to calculate Hogan´s height in boots then?....

--------------------------------------

Good idea but those boots look different than the ones in the staredown with Andre from 1987, which had a flap over the shin. Plus, those measurements may be suspect. Hogan’s 1988 ring boots being auctioned were reportedly size 12, which would be nowhere near 15 inches long. Click Here

A size 23 shoes look around 16 inches long Click Here I have some size 15 shoes (New Balance and Nike) that are both a little under 14 inches long so a 15 inch shoe is probably around size 18-19 (Andre and Big Show size).
miko said on 15/Sep/20
I like Hulk, but I really couldn't put together enough evidence to argue him being a legit 6'6 at any time in his career, given the amount of evidence pointing towards him being closer to 6'5.

IF Sid was 6'6 then Hulk was 6'4.5/6'4.75 maximum at his tallest but I personally have Sid at 6'6.5 range and Hulk a hair over 6'5.

Peak Hogan at 6’5 flat morning height sounds right. Compare Hogan to Tiny lister, John Tenta, Hall, One Man Gang, Big John Studd and 6’5 looks right.
Lister and Studd had bigger heels or smaller lifts. As for Sid vs Hogan, that was 92. Hogan was probably down to 6’4.5 and Sid was around 6’6. Hogan in 1 inch boots makes him 6’5.5 and Sid had a footwear advantage. So Sid as 6’6 in 1.5 inch boots makes him 6’7.5.

“Everyone says they wouldn’t change anything about their life. If I could change anything, it would be my finisher. I would never use the leg drop. I’d use the sleeper. All the back surgeries I’ve had are because of that damn leg drop. I had scoliosis, brother. Dropping that leg for 35 years did me in. I said I had the largest arms in the word, and I should have used a sleeper hold or another finisher with my arms.”

If he already had scoliosis prior to the wrestling related injuries it would explain a significant drop in height.

@HADS185: yea I also don’t believe he was 6’7” or even a full 6’6” at his peak. If we use the standard of an afternoon height something like 6’5.25” is what I would go with or minimum 6’5”. I guess there is an outside chance of something like 195cm just as there is for something like a 197-197.5 range but really the Maximum I would go is 6’5.5”

The site says they were 19 inches in height. You can also see the sole is pretty thick, about nearly 1 inch. But I would be surprised if you could manage to put any lifts in there. The ankle would have to be higher for that.

Click Here

@Yao there is a difference between lifts and the sole. No wrestler in the world would be able to safely thow arounds 300 lbs.+ opponents with high lifts in the boots. Try lifting a weight on your tip toes only, won´t work that well. And Hogan did a lot of power moves back then. Viscera, Kane, Jake Roberts and Big Show wore some of the thickest soled boots in the business.

And by the way, not jumping off the ropes has nothing to do with lifts. Guys like Hogan and Sid are/were too heavy to put that stress on their joints and ankles. Therefore Sid wasn´t comfortable doing the jump, but did it anymway. He wasn´t uesd to it, landed on one leg only and all 300+ lbs. of him were too much.

I don´t think Hogan was anywhere near 6´7" barefoot, but I don´t see him as short as 6´3", sorry.
Editor Rob
Custom boots with padded inserts is something a few wrestlers may have had made, but I doubt Hogan's boots had anything in them.

Hogan's signature move really done a number on his back, he performed it thousands of times and the repetive spinal load/impact is the reason he's ended up having about 10 surgeries on his back.

I assume Hogan is referring to both height and weight, especially since Hogan claims he got the nickname “Hulk” b/c he was allegedly bigger than Ferrigno (the "Hulk" nickname makes no sense if referring to height).
The claimed meeting between Hogan and Ferrigno must have been after 1977 b/c Hogan in 1977 (age 23-24) would have looked anorexic next to Ferrigno Click Here Hogan’s much larger here two years later at age 25 with ~5’10” Lance Russell Click Here and with no reason for any height loss by this time (or throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s). Hogan arguably does not even look 6'5" here unless he's barefoot/in thin flip flops and/or Russell is in cowboy boots.
-----------------------
Not sure if Hogan was involved in both his autobiographies "My life outside the ring" & "Hollywood Hulk Hogan", but in those biographies he tells a contradicting story about this meeting.

In the book "My life outside the ring" he claims he got the nickname 'Hulk' when he was wrestling in Jerry Jarret's CWA wrestling promotion in Memphis, Tennessee. He claimed it was Jerry Jarret who mentioned that he dwarfed Lou Ferrigno and should be given the nickname 'Hulk'.

Yet in the book "Hollywood Hulk Hogan" he claimed this meeting between him & Lou occured in Mobile, Alabama when Hogan was still wrestling in Louie Tillet's Alabama wrestling territory. And it was the TV host that said Hogan was dwarfing The Hulk.

Seriously, everything that comes out of Hogan's mouth can be taken with a huge grain of salt. I'm willing to bet that if you ask Lou Ferrigno about this story, he will probably have no memory of said meeting.

@JT: I agree on Hogan’s height of 6’5 range. He would’ve been close in height with you and taller than I am in his prime. I’m 6’4.25”. Michael Cooper I agree on as someone I know who’s met him said he’s a legit 6’5”. At least he was.and Rambis at 6’8” I agree with. Worst case maybe he was just shy of it. But with Ferrigno I never saw a legit 6’4”. I could see 192 max for him if not 191-192 peak height.

Even a 6’5” Hogan would have been noticeably taller than Ferrigno considering how Ferrigno looked with Kurt Rambis and Michael Cooper Click Here I saw Cooper up close in the early 1980s and he looked a legit 6’5” (and very thin). Rambis was around 6’8” back then.

It would be interesting to know the height of the two guys next to Hogan here before his wrestling days Click Here However, it looks like everyone in the band was wearing some big-heeled footwear.

@62B: well by his standards, Hogan May very well be 6’4”. He himself said once that the time of the day doesn’t matter so by deduction if he believes a 6’3.25 being his height then he would probably be 6’4” out of bed. See how it can’t work both ways!!!!!

Hogan with 6’6ish Sid

Too little height difference for Hogan to be 6’3”. Considering a tilted head by Sid that’s about what you would expect for a 6’6/6’6.25 guy and a 6’5-6’5.5 range guy

Here is Hogan and Andre the Giant in a different picture outside of the ring. Still at most a 5” difference on the account of Andre’s large head again consistent with a 6’10 range guy and a 6’5 range guy

Click Here

6’2 Donald Trump (worst case weak 6’2) peak and Hogan. Too much height difference to say Hogan is only 6’3 too little to call him 6’6” and that is with an unknown variable with footwear

Click Here

Then Hogan Trump and Andre (footwear is unknown). If we call it even, Hogan can pass for 6’5.5 with a 6’2 Trump. In reality, 6’5.25 looks better and is what Hogan looks the most on this site.

Click Here

That said, a 6’3” peak Hogan is out of the question. He was no less than 6’5” in his prime. Outside chance at 6’5.5” but probably very little probability that he was ever 6’5.5-6’6 range. He did lose 2” in height whether people want to believe it or not. Keep in mind that Alan32080 met him in person multiple times and confirmed something else that Hogan has said himself, that he had vertebrae removed which does translate to height loss in many cases. Alan also argued that Hogan didn’t look as low as 6’3” flat today and guessed no lower than 6’3.25 but also said 6’3.5 is possible. I could see the argument for a hair over today but can make a case for 6’3” flat. But his poor posture is consistent with that of the Big Show and the Undertaker who also don’t always walk their tallest.

Last but not least here is Hogan with Muhammad Ali. Not sure if he was still at his peak here but he’s clearly not just 6’3” with a 6’2 or 6’2 1/2” range guy. Minimum would be about 6’4 or 6’4.5 (footwear unknown of course) here with Ali

Click Here

Cases for peak height

A 195 cm is the Absolute lowest I could argue and that’s with his footwear being The X Factor at times. Not likely but possible

B 196-196.5 is the most likely (6’5.25ish) 198 out of bed (6’6)

C 195.5-196 is the second most likely meaning he would be 197-198 out of bed and consistent with Tiny Lister

D 196.5-197 is up with 195.5-196 but that’s about as high as he could still measure in the afternoon meaning he’d be closing in on 199 out of bed

E 197-198 not likely but likelier than 6’3

Current height I’ll say is 190-191 range. Chance of 191 still

Kareem probably has lost height. Tacko Fall measured 7'5 1/4 barefoot Click Here show me evidence Kareem had as many back, knee and hip operations as Hogan last 20 years..

There are studies done that shows aging causes height loss. It's been verified. Yes not everyone loses height at same rate. My uncle was about 6'1 peak and still solid 6 foot in his early 70s, His sister my aunt was probably 5'6-5'7 back in early 90s and last I saw her she had dropped 2-3 inches by her mid late 70s.

Bruh, Lebron is 6-8 1/2, Melo is 6-7 1/2/6-8, and Kobe was 6-6, why is that so hard to comprehend? Kobe was listed as 6-7 when he first got to the NBA and then revised to 6-6. Lebron is not 4 inches taller than Kobe, he is about 2.5 inches taller. And Perk was not 6-8, he was at least 6-9 1/2, that was just wrong for you to just take off 2 inches from Perk's height like that.

It’s not hard to comprehend. You’re wrong and that’s hard to accept or comprehend on your end. Kobe was listed at 6’6” when he first came in the league. That was changed to 6’7” his second year when he spent time as a 6th man then as a starter his 3rd year. He played some small forward which is why they changed. Then it went back to 6’6”. But since you are so into what people claim (You cling on to Anthony Falsone or whatever supports someone being taller than they really are):

I'm 5'4" and Kobe is 6'4" and 3/4 to be exact. 😊 - Vanessa Bryant

I'm six-six, but my kids are quick to remind me that I'm actually Six-Four and a half without shoes.- Kobe Bryant

But knowing you, there is going to be an excuse.

So I’ve mentioned many times that I’ve seen Melo in person. He is not 6’7” let alone 6’8”. He’s what Rob lists him and if you see him next to 6’4 3/4” Kobe that’s exactly why you think he’s 6’7.5” because he’s 6’6.25 next to a 6’4.75” guy. Lebron has Melo by only max 1” if not 2cm and is about 6’7” next to Melo. He was measured 6’7.25” when he was drafted. That’s the most that I will ever argue he is. If you want to believe in something that isn’t true, be my guest. But Again, since you can’t comprehend what you read, here are the 2003 NBA pre drafts. If anything, they would be shorter than listed and not taller. Prime example Dwayne Wade admitted he’s 6’3.25” not 6’3.75 (look at his page). He’s probably 6’3” max afternoon height.

Many Happy Returns to Hulk Hogan, who turns 67 years old today. I do like his headwear; in fact, I don't think I've ever seen him without his trademark 'headkerchief'!

The poor sausage undergoing so many operations, AND leaving him with a reduced height. 👅 At least when I had mine, I gained a couple of inches...😄

Actors and athletes adding inches to their heights? Who would think that?? ROFL.

He wasn’t documented as growing. His trainer said that. So if the trainer from the Hornets had said that Muggsy Bogues grew from 5’3 (he was 5’2 barefoot) to 5’7” then I guess you would believe that too?

It's obvious that he was around the 6'5 range at his tallest.

At Yao, you do realize that humans losing up to 2” of height from age 30 to age 70 is not unheard off. And more common than not for a human to lose at the very least 1” to 1.5” inches of height from age 30 to age 70. You do realize Clint Eastwood has lost more than 3” of height? Donald Trump has most 1.5” of height. Ric Flair has lost 2” of height. Vince McMahon has lost 1.5” of height. Steve Austin has already lost 1” of height. The Big Show has already lost 1.5” of height. The Undertaker has already lost over an inch of height. Jim Brown has lost 2” of height. These are just a few examples of very famous people, that I’m sure you’ve heard of....that have lost significant height as they aged. To say that Hulk Hogan aka Terry Bollea hasn’t lost 2” of off his peak height, that it’s all a conspiracy theory to hide all old wrestlers true heights, is possibly the dumbest thing I have ever read on here. The only thing dumber that I’ve read on the Hogan page, is when some fella on here insist that a peak Hogan was 6’8” & change barefoot, LOL! The truth is, Hogan has lost almost EXACTLY 2” of height from his peak height days. 6’5” or just a fraction over 6’5” down to 6’3” !

My own mother has lost 4 inches in height. So please stop talking about Hogan's height now. Peak is accurate. Always a few inches taller than Ventura who was 6'3 range. Countless other examples. Hogan now is at least 3 inches shorter than peak and his knees are always bent.

In my opinion the man was just under 6´5" peak. Put some thick boots on him and he looks 6´6", bill him 6´7", nobody questions that.

That beeing said, many tend to make a mistake about the old time wrestlers. That closer to the camera argument is often wrong. Hogan WAS that big. He is one of the few wrestlers whose weight was underbilled sometimes to make his opponent look more monstrous. He easily was 330 lbs. sometimes.

@Harry Sachs, if you search for Buster Douglas/Hulk Hogan, you will find pictures where Hogan is further behind Douglas and still dwarfs him, both in height and size.

Hmmm. The troll fan boy is calling me a minimizer? Be serious Henry. Hulk claimed to be 6’7” and 6’5” peak. Do you really believe that he was 6’8 9/16? Let alone 6’9 1/4? And is only 6’3 today? That would make him taller than a peak Undertaker or Sid when he was shorter than both. Please find yourself another hobby. It’s clear that nobody here takes you seriously especially when you use the “I spoke with my Chiropractor at length”. I surely hope your Chiropractor is there for you when you decide to purchase your first vehicle or your first house because it seems that you cling on to him and need him to co-sign for you. I’ll digress as to whether or not I believe that he said that about Hulk.

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.

Henry said on 9/May/20
Hogan had already lost a tremendous amount of height by Suburban Commando but he was still at least 6" or 7" taller than Christopher Loyd by that point.

Carson, peak height Hogan in 1995 with Rodman? ROTFLMFAO.
Hulk Hogan's peak height was from 1974 to 1977. I have talked extensively with my chiropractor about Hulk Hogan.
He said that Hogan lost a microscopic amount of height with every leg drop curving his spine like someone with scoliosis. 1990 Hogan is significantly shorter than 1975 Hogan, let alone the tremendous height loss 1995 Hogan.

The only one being ridiculous is Henry. He’s a troll though. I don’t agree with the 6’5.75 and 6’6 guesses but at least Rob lists him at 6’6”. But I think it’s clear now that Hogan was only 6’5 or 6’5.25” peak. I think the latter. 6’6 out of bed and 6’5.25 peak which makes him close to 6’7” in boots

6’5-ish max. Stood next to him in 2014 and if he could have stretched out tall (which I’m not sure he could) 6’4.
With his posture he looked 6’3.5.
Physically bigger than I expected, lots of old wrestlers are slimmer than I thought they would be.
Piper, Flair, Taker, Warrior and many more looked slimmer.
Hulk looked 280 still, not a ripped 280, just bulk with HUGE arms.
I know he posted a pic on his Instagram in the last few years of his scale at 300lbs.
No need to question this, he certainly had a barrel around his guy now, an extra 30lbs+ there easy.

Hogan was already 13 years past his peak height when he faced Sid in the early 1990s. It’s not reasonable to use 1991 as Hogan’s height comparison. He had already faced years of spinal compression and disc degeneration with all his matches in the 1980s. Hogan was 6’6 peak height.

They way you people inflate guys heights are so amusing to me. According to this site Dennis Rodman is around 6'6 1/2 and here is a photo of Hulk Hogan, Rodman, Karl Malone from back in the 90's Hulk Hogan was never 6'6. Click Here

Here is Hulk Hogan and Sid Vicious Click Here

Here is a much better picture of the 6'3 Buster Douglas and Hulk Hogan. Click Here

Here is Hulk Hogan and Muhammad Ali who is between 6'2 and 6'2 1/2 in his prime Click Here

Canon is the typical height minimizer.
He literally can't tell the truth about height st all. He has to lie and say 1/2" when the truth is his estimate is OVER 3/4" to 1 1/4" below the average peak height guess.
miko said on 23/Jul/20
If Hogan was 6'6 peak you can argue near 6'8 for Sid and Taker which we know is ridiculous.

Hulk was 6'5/6'5.25 at his tallest, which means that he would have been 6'6 out of bed.

6ft4.5-6ft5 peak is as foolish of a claim as 6ft7+.

6’4.5-6’5 is only about 1/2” less than most guess him so how is that foolish? You’re the foolish one on this site
SeanR said on 21/Jul/20
Hi Rob,

I know you have steadfast kept Hogan’s peak at 6’6”, but is there a slight possibility he could have been 6’5 3/4” or 6’5 7/8” at his peak?

I personally believe Hogan was 6’5.5” at his peak back in the 70’s, but I just can’t see him being at or near the same height as guys like Sid Vicious (Eudy), or Dennis Rodman at his peak. Sid looked 1.5 inches taller back in 1991 with a 38 yr old Hogan, and Dennis Rodman looked 2 inches taller than Hogan (early 40’s) back in the mid nineties.
Editor Rob
For many celebs I can see arguments below (or above) an estimate. With Hogan, I couldn't see him as say 6ft 5 flat or as high as 6ft 7, but 6ft 6 and a bit under? Yeah it's not ruled out.
Riky said on 21/Jul/20
Rob@

Do you really think prime Hogan was same height as Undertaker listing here today? 6'6"?
Doesn't sounds really good to be honest.
Editor Rob
Well, it's the most I'd give him.

The thing that's odd about the pro wrestlers' "kayfabe heights" is that they aren't to scale. If even one wrestler is billed as being 2 extra inches taller, then it stands to reason that every other wrestler in the same promotion would also be given 2 inches -- you know, to make the scripted show all the more believable. Instead, some wrestlers are billed with their actual heights, and others are given umpteen extra inches of height.

Hogan looked huge in his prime in picture, but we have enough evidence that he never was more than a 6'5".
I respect posters like Canson so I also respect those 6'5.25/5 claims for hogan but for me it's to high.
6'6" completely ruled out.
If you ask me Hogan was max 6'4.5 to 6'5" and nothing above.

I appreciate that Riky. My estimate has changed in light of Sid’s admission. I have 6’5-6’5.25 now not 6’5.25-.5 anymore. Today I think Rob has him just about right. He may actually be slightly over the 6’3” mark today at 6’3.25. Many who meet him say he looks 6’3.5” so it’s possible he’s a 6’4 out of bed and 6’3.25 afternoon height

ROTFLMFAO, Sid was barely over 13 1/2 years old when Peak Hogan existed. These height minimizers grasping at straws is laughable.

About as laughable as your bullsh*t story about your “doctor” or chiropractor saying Hogan was 6’8 9/16” 😂 😂 😂 😂
You have no credibility on this site after saying that
Henry said on 19/Jul/20
Hugo Munn, I agree that Hogan was 6'9" barefoot peak, but that was after a good 13 hours of sleep.
He was probably down to between 6'8 9/16" to 6'8 3/4" barefoot by mid day.
Hotpots said on 18/Jul/20
Impossible he was 6-6 peak. As Sid was a legit 6-6 so hogan was 6-5. 100 percent always looked shorter to Sid. Impossible he was 6-6 peak.

6 foot 9 absolute peak, this guy was HUGE. 6’4.5 nowadays, but people forget that he would have started shrinking at age 30. By the time he got to wcw he had shrunk several inches.
UndertakerFrank said on 15/Jul/20
Canson every picture with Sid & Hogan there was atleast a 2 inch difference we are talking about the 80'S where Hogan was young
Canson said on 13/Jul/20
Willes190 said on 12/Jul/20
The people claiming 6ft5-6ft5¼ peak probably hasn’t taken a good enough look at how Hogan looked in his 20s and 30s – he really looked HUGE. Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here


Now was he really a full BIG 6ft6? That’s debatable, and the absolute most I’d ever argue. I personally believe that a very reasonable and accurate range for peak Hogan would be that of 6ft5½-6ft5¾.

Sid himself said that he was only 6’6”. A peak 6’5.5 Hogan is possible but 6’5.25 and 6’6 out of bed are believable being Rob said himself he doesn’t know when he began to lose height.
Canson said on 13/Jul/20
@Undertaker Frank: Peak Sid didn’t have 2” on a peak Hogan. Taker had 1.5-2” on Hogan however
Undertaker Frank said on 12/Jul/20
Sid & Taker both had Hogan by 2 to 2.5 inches on Hogan in the 80's so theres no way he was ever 6ft 6 Sid might have been 6ft 6 Taker 6 ft 6.5
Willes190 said on 12/Jul/20
When Hogan wrestled Sid during the 90s he had already lost around 1 inch... Also Sid was above 6ft6, he was absolutely TOWERING (still is). It could very well be that he is one of those few guys that rounds down, probably simpler to claim 6ft6 than 6ft6 range. When they met each other 91 for example Hogan was 6ft5 – or even below – whereas Sid was peak height, hence the inch and a half difference in height.

Hogan - 6ft5.5-6ft5.75 (Peak)
Sid - 6ft6.5 (Peak)

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
Aaron colton said on 3/Jul/20
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.
David Banner said on 29/Jun/20
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
viper said on 26/Jun/20
James Connor is 6-1
Chinybobs said on 26/Jun/20
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.
miko said on 24/Jun/20
Hulk looks to be still 6'3 or slightly over these days.
