Don't doubt that Hulk's body has been ravaged over the years and has lost quite a bit of height. He looked gigantic in Rock IV. Stallone looked smaller next to Hogan then he did compared to Dolph Lundgren. Probably very close to 6'6 for Thunderlips in the flesh baby.

Yeah

I'll just say this: A 6'/6'0.5" HHH would mean we have to lower every other wrestlers height by about 2". In other words, we would have a 6'4.5"/6'5" peak Undertaker, 5'9" peak Shawn Michaels, 5'8" Kurt Angle, 5'11" Stone Cold, 6'1" peak Rock, 6'0.5" peak Goldberg, 6'2" Hogan (from 2002), 6'0.5"/6'1" Roman Reins, 5'10" max John Cena, 6'2" Randy Orton, etc. Click Here

I try to stick to people I have actually seen up close for posting on Robs forum. I do sometimes chime in on someone if I feel I have some information that might help, such as here with HHH. My friend could be wrong. Its also possible he caught HHH on a day that he wasn't wearing big boots or some other type of lifts.
Canson said on 11/Sep/17
@Alan32080: peak is hard to pin down for him. I would've believed he was 6'4.75-6'5.25 peak maybe 6'5.5-6'6 out of bed. It's also very difficult to determine when and how much height he has actually lost. At times he can look 6'2" range today like Christian said but can also look 6'3" range in few pics. I never see him looking near 6'4 let alone 6'4" range. 6'3" for him would be a best case if his posture is at its best.

It's also hard to tell when based on how he appeared with Dennis Rodman or Charles Barkley. I can agree with Rob on both listings for those two (albeit 1/8-1/4" less for barkley at night as Barkley measured 6'4 5/8 at the olympics but Jordan generally is 2" shorter than rodman so he may have been a full 6'6.5 at his lowest or maybe a flat 199 at night as I can see Jordan as 6'4 3/8 or 1/2" at night).

Stop inflating Roman Reigns to 6'2.5" so that you can make Triple H taller. Reigns is not over 6'2" flat. And the fact that you said there's no evidence in the world that HHH's under 6'2" is pretty bold and audacious, when I can debunk that statement in no time Click Here You're probably the type of guy to inflate the Rock to 6'4" as well so you can make HHH 6'2.75" or something like that, as I've seen a few people do that.

__________________

There is no proof HHH was under 6'2" in his prime. You can't prove something that isn't true. Rock was about 1" taller than HHH as he was 6'3". There are plenty of somewhat recent posts on this page where I say the Rock was 6'3" in his prime and is maybe slightly less now so I don't know where your getting your nonsense opinions. As for Reins, he may be 6'2" and not 6'2.5". You act like there's some big difference between the two. It's pretty much the same height. But he and HHH and essentially the same height with Reins being marginally taller and he probably has a footwear advantage. Also, that is not HHH in his prime. He could very easily be down .5" from his prime considering he's pushing 50. Again, HHH was Goldberg's height in 2003. That should tell you everything you need to know. I dare you to contact anyone who worked with HHH and ask them how tall he is/was. You're type of guy who could be told by 100 people that worked closely with him that he was at least 6'2" and still think you know better. Just like I could show you a million pieces of irrefutable evidence, and you will still deny it. There is no sense in arguing with guys like you.

You had one of the best quotes a year or so ago. You said "never trust a wresters footwear". I think that was a pretty accurate statement.

Here is what I know. Hogan in 1980 was about an inch taller than my Grandfather who was a little over 6'4", so he was likely at least 6'5". Ted Dibiase was pretty much the same height as I was when I was just out of the army, about 6'3" maybe a little more. Lex luger was 1/2" to 1" shorter than me when I was in the Army (the tallest I ever measured in the Army was 6'3 1/4").Shawn Michaels in cowboy boots was maybe 6'1" so probably 5'11" barefoot. Andre the Giant in 1988 looked 6'11" in the late morning. Hacksaw Jim Duggan was about my height with him in hiking boots and me in worn out running shoes, so he was probably 6'2 1/4" barefoot. The Undertaker, Crush, and Mike Rotundo (IRS) were all in the gym the same time as Dibiase, but I wasn't able to stand right next to them. I put Undertaker at the time 6'7", Crush was probably a little over 6'5", and I never was able to get a good read for Rotundo's height, I'm guessing at least 6'1, for sure shorter than Dibiase.

HHH is not 6'2". My best friend got his pick with HHH while serving over seas. He told me that HHH was no where near my height. Said he was barely 6'

_________________

I'm sorry to tell you, but your friend is 100% wrong for a fact. I dare you to find me one person who has ever worked with HHH that would say he is under 6'2". He is roughly the same height as 6'2.5" Roman Reins even now. He was also the same height as 6'2.5" prime Goldberg in 2003. There is literally no evidence in the world that you can provide that shows HHH under 6'2"; especially in his prime. The only "evidence" you have is that your friend told you he was only 6'. That's not evidence of anything. I have had friends tell me all kinds of obviously false info regarding wrestlers that they met.

Yeah guys Sting was an absolute tank - actually seemed to have the widest frame of the wrestlers I've met. But he wasn't the full 6 foot 2 I had expected. I'd put him around 6 foot 1 - I think we had pretty even footwear.

****sock. To me in most pictures Luger usually looks to have Sting by an inch and a half. I can tell you that a peak Luger was about 6'2 to maybe 6'2.5", as he is another wrestler I have seen up close. Although Luger did start to wear lifts at some point in his career.

There is no way in the world Sting is under 6'1". If I had a million dollars, I'd bet all of it on that. He was around 6'2" in his prime and wore pretty big heels on his boots. Even now he is about .5" shorter than 6'2" HHH: Click Here
I'll say sting was 6'2" prime and is 6'1.5" now as he is still in good shape and only in his late 50s. Hogan never looked more than 3" taller than him.

Looking at the top of your twitter page the woman does seem to come up to the same spot on you as She does on Hogan and You are standing taller. So I'll take your work that Hogan is at least your height. I did scroll down and see a picture of you with Sting. Doesn't look like he is anywhere near the 6'2" people think he is.

Hogans prime height is really hard to pin down from pictures. I sat down the other day and googled him with other people of known height and his prime in my opinion was between 6'6.5" wake up and 6'5.5" evening. I don't think he was a flat 6'5" because looking at him in person he has a look of a taller man who's body has been put through hell. I honestly could see him at the prime listing of 6'6" but I there are other pictures that show a 6'5.5" evening prime. Hard to say really.

Not seeing a sub 6'3" Hogan at all there. He is leaning and joeyb33 is closer to the camera and still looks as tall. Also just read he had a 1/4 less shoe as well. 1/2 inch is easy to disguise and I do sometimes see an argument for 6'2.75" for Hogan but not here.

To all. If he's under 6'3.5" than it happened this year. As I have said countless times he was taller than me (6'3") and barely shorter than team member (6'5") honestly looks 6'4" compared to both of us as a happy medium. Great pics and comments.

6 foot 2.25 is my afternoon height. Pretty sure myTIMBS are 1.5 heel but Hogan most certainly had on those Nikes!

*********************************

I bought the retro Nike, they were 1.33-1.34" brand new with standard insole. Now they are 1.25-1.28".
But its easy to fit lifts in them. Don´t know if that´s the reason Hogan wears them...
Canson said on 4/Sep/17
@Alan32080: that makes sense. Usually half inch in 2-3" and you would dip to 6'2.75 prob afternoon (at least the avg person would).

@Dicksock: in the 80s hogan was a legit 6'5. Agreed

Thanks Joeyb33...we may now indeed have only a 6'2.5" Hulkster now?

Joeyb33, are you certain Hulk is even your height? How tall is the girl in the picture? I can tell Hulk is leaning forward and probably not standing straight but in that picture he doesn't look much over 6'. Which is crazy to me, because he definitely looked at least 6'5" in 1980 when I saw him.

Guys it's not that confusing. Hogan was 6'5"-6'5.5" in his prime and is about 6'3"-6'3.5" now. The pic with 6'2.25" Joey just illustrates how misleading pictures can be. I literally just took pics with my 5'10" friend, and I looked 2" taller for various reasons. Joey was in front of Hogan and that picture proves nothing. Hogan was 1-2" taller than 6'2" Lesnar when Lesnar was on his tip toes. That is a fact. 6'5" Tiny Lister and the 6'6" ring announcer from WM II have both said Hogan was at least 6'5" in his prime. Again, he was very obviously at least 6'5" in his prime and is at least 6'3" now. Game over.

Canson said on 2/Sep/17
@RP: I have to disagree. I usually lose 3/4" which is the norm across this site even Rob at his peak lost 3/4". If you see anyone else's posts they typically do too. Even My 6'4.25 isn't a full 7/8" that's about .83 (I'm 6'5.08 out of bed). And only when I go to the gym because I'm on my feet and even play ball sometimes. But my normal low in the evening last time I measured was 6'4.33 which is a solid 3/4". Losing 1/4-1/2 is not normal. You lose that just in the morning
RP said on 2/Sep/17
Canson & Alan32080,
I'm much shorter than both of you guess...I'm also a very fit & heavy weight lifter. At 41 years old, I'm 5'11-1/8" right out of bed & 5'10-3/4" at night just before bedtime. I think most healthy men loose 1/4" to 1/2" from 7am to 7pm typically. I'm 3/8" myself. Canson losing 7/8" is a lot! But, being such a tall guy & weight lifter can make a difference.
RP said on 2/Sep/17
Joeyb33?
Where you wearing the 1.75" Timberlands? I'm assuming Hogan was in his 1.25" Black & Red Nike's ? Giving yo a 0.5" footwear advantage? I agree with you, if Hogan isn't leaning & stands up straight to match your posture...you two would be eye to eye & basically the same height. Factor in the 0.5" footwear advantage??...gives you a 6'2.75" Hulk Hogan. Flair is looking 5'9.75" (if in 1" dress shoes) IMO? Also, is 6'2.25" your morning or evening barefoot height?
Alan32080 said on 2/Sep/17

Canson said on 1/Sep/17
@Alan32080: that's very odd. We all lose 1cm roughly after an hour of being on our feet then 1/2" after 2 maybe 3 hours. For rounding purposes I'm 6'5 1/8 out of bed (usually 1mm under that) and 1mm under 6'4 3/8 193.9 by the time I've been awake for 7-8 hours which is about the same as Rob. If I lose more it's by going to the gym and it's only 2mm more to get to 193.7.

@Alan32080: gotcha. Was confused for a moment because you said you are 6'3 at 9-10 am? You'd still be a morning height then. Then said you're 6'3 at 2-4pm. Guess it varies based on when you wake up. I wake up at 5-530 am myself and am 6'5.08 but am closer to 6'4" evening (6'4.25 on a gym day) At 9-10 am I would still be close to 6'4.5 or full 6'4.5 if 9am esp. but that's a morning height.

3:40 onwards

Hogan with less footwear 1.5-2cm shorter than Tiny Lister who claimed in an interview that he and Hogan were "both 6´5" in real life". Sounds pretty legit, both solid 6´5" in 1989.
Alan32080 said on 28/Aug/17
@Canson typically done between 2 and 4 in the afternoon after they do PT on treadmill and psych evaluation. I am not in The Coast Guard all though they do train really really hard. I'm on a SWAT Team in Jax Florida as well as a Force reaction team member for the National Guard if Governor issues state of emergency. I was in the Army prior from 1996-2003 in the 82nd Doing 3 combat tours in Iraq, Africa and Afghanistan. I met Hogan around 9:00 - 10:00 at a private firing range where my Tac team goes to train with the Tampa SWAT. Around that time in the morning I am 6'3" barefoot and he was a minimum of 1/2" taller but looks more like 1" and he looked 1" smaller than a 6'5" team member. Honestly he looked closer to his height than mine. My guess is 6'4" but could possibly be 6'3.5" but I doubt it.
Canson said on 28/Aug/17
@Alan: you were measured by Coast Guard? Just curious wasit in the morning? Most military people I know have their height measured in the AM usually an hour out of bed (when they first get to work). Not sure if you were in there too but this would carry weight as you really would be under 6'3" if you were a solid 6'3" morning

i don't believe Barkley has much diff on Conan like 1.5". Conan definitely as many of us had said for a long time is not a true 6'4 look at him with Selleck or Neeson or Lithgow or hasselhoff as well as Barkley and Kobe it's the same difference with them. Saying Barkley is 6'5.5 just because Conan is 6'4 is simply inflating Barkley just to make Conan that height when he has never been measured and Barkley has been

@Guanzo not a chance at 6'3" now!! I know my height and its 6'3" documented every 3 months on Medical release and Wellness forms through the JSO SWAT and National Guard database. He was taller than me earlier this year and was only a fraction shorter maybe a inch than a fellow SWAT Team Member of mine who is 6'5". At the lowest he could be is 6'3.5" but looks more like a 6'4" on the head.

The Hogan's height isn't clearly. Hogan contradict himself with his words.

Can we trust in his claims? I don't know...when he said surgeries is a excuse. I think this guy wasn't more than 194/195 cm in peak. And now he is 191cm

I read in articles he was nearly 2 m I think all.marketing.

@Vegas: I respectfully disagree with you. Why would they put the measurement out their if it didn't exist? It is from the Olympics in 1992. That's what he is. And as far as your video, They do not come out their listed heights because the angles are skewed. Melo actually looks taller than Lebron does or at worst the same height. Melo I can attest to him being his listed height because I've met him and he's got me by 1.5-2" standing right next to me. I am 193.9cm (6'4.33") at night so Melo at worst dips to 6'6-6'6 1/8 at night. But Lebron is listed at 6'7.25. He's not an inch taller than Melo is. And if you see other footage and pics with Wade and Lebron Lebron is a good 4" taller. Wade is not 6'3.75. Look at him with Ray Allen or Rasual Butler or other pics with Anthony or Lebron

As for the pics with JT nobody here has posted a perfect picture yet. However the pics become extensively and progressively worse if they don't support ones point of trying to "inflate a player" or if someone is being downgraded. I don't see any difference with his pics honestly.

Ray Allen with 6'8.5 Rashard Lewis. That's close to 5". Keep in mind ray has Wade by an inch.

I don't understand your line of argument. For as long as I have seen you here, you have been continually referencing a measurement, a measurement we have zero proof even took place. Now you want to ignore the documented NBA measurements that did take place (we know that because there is video of certain measurements taking place).

Everyone in this video comes out their measured height. Wade looks to be in loafers so will have slight footwear disadvantage over everyone else Click Here
Canson said on 25/Aug/17
@Christian: I have to agree with your statement below! Not calling anyone else ignorant but the thoughts that someone downplays their height when they were measured is foolish and just plain stupid!
Canson said on 25/Aug/17
@Rising: agreed but I have to say that warped perception goes into this conversation as well. Christian and I both similar in height with these guys. I can definitively say that Keith bogans or ray Allen either of which would comfortably edge Wade. Never met Ray but Keith is 6'4" legit. If I heard one person tell me Barkley is 6'4 and twelve other say he's 6'6 then i would be compelled to believe you. But the evidence I've posted as well has guys his height or taller saying that he's specifically 6'4-6'5 6'4.5 or 6'4. This as well as the video with chick Hearn where he said it. So the warped perception not to be rude to anyone is because everyone outside of Christian is using pre draft heights and supposed measurements for others and basically inflating Barkley accordingly. Dwayne wade I can say is not as tall as I am. I edged bogans by a hair in person last time I saw him and he is noticeably taller than wade as is Caron butler. Butler is taller than Kobe is and Kobe is taller than Barkley as I proved earlier in the pic. But the most frustrating thing with some of the arguments had here on celebheohjts is objectivity goes out the window with pics when someone wants to make someone taller than they are. The one moment Barkley looks his actual height it's some bs like we can't see the top of their heads or full body or we can't see their shoes etc but if he looks the height people want him to be none of the factors come into play such as in pics that height posted with he and Pique or the pic with Jon Jones that Dicksock posted. The pics are good depending on the circumstances and people's arguments honestly there is never a one size fits all approach here. But to allude to what Christian said I don't see why Barkley would measure 6'4 5/8 at the olympics and 6'4.75 (which he claimed before he went to the olympics on more than one occasion actually in the 80s) and then all of a sudden be 6'5.5. That's is a bit foolish and silly honestly. The 6'5.5 is a shoe height for him which was rounded up to 6'6" just like any other 6'4.5/6'4.75 basketball player

Vegas, JT's pics Arent better than mine they just support his and rising's and possibly your perspective in Barkley being taller. We all have different opinions on it and when people who meet Barkley describe him as 6'4" range as well I find it silly and hard to believe that he is 6'6. People near him in height aren't gonna be 1.5" or 2" off. The pics that we posted are no different really. I highly doubt Wade being 6'3.75 for starters. Lebron has over 4" on him minimum 4". Lebron i see as a solid 6'7" tops. Wade with Keith Bogans is also shorter noticeably and Bogans I have met and played against as we are a year apart in age he's a legit 6'4". Wade in shoes would Otherwise would be listed 6'5" if he were really that tall being a 2 guard. If you look at wade next to Caron Butler there is more difference than there is with Barkley and I have met butler he is 6'5. Barkley is not as tall as butler. I agree there is 2" between Wade and Barkley just as there are 2" between Kobe and Barkley and why because Wade is not really 6'3.75. He's 6'2.75/6'3 tops. Everyone puts credence on his measurement because it is a pre draft which is reported the same way (via reporters) and is no reported no differently than Barkley's Olympic measurement.
Vegas said on 24/Aug/17
Canson those photos can't be used for height comparison purposes. JT posted one where both men are equidistant from the camera and the camera is not above head level. Everyone at the top of this photo comes out taller than big show rendering this shot useless Click Here

Risings video should have ended the debate. Barkley is almost 2 inches taller than barefoot 6'3 3/4 dwade face to face. Wade was taller than Michael Clarke Duncan and noticeably taller on video than Zach Levi whom Rob has been photographed with and looks roughly 6'3
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Aug/17
@Christian: By the same token, why would someone Barkley's height(whether he's as tall as I think or you think he's taller than over 99% either way) inflate their height by 3/4"? That actually proves my point, which is all of Barkley's claims are suspect so I believe we should go by how he looks, not by what he says.

@Canson: Fair enough, but I don't think anecdotal evidence is that reliable in many cases either. You've acknowledged many people have a warped perception of height from most people lying so I think that goes to my point that the average person is not like you, me, JT or Christian. Even with our differing opinions I think we're all more height aware than most. If you know somebody personally and trust your judgement then I respect that, but remember, I don't know that person and can't evaluate their judgement either way. I think we have to remember that between you and me, we're only talking a 2 cm difference on a man taller than over 99% of men regardless. JT offers another possible explanation for those who do have a good perception of height estimating Barkley shorter. It could be his pointy head(which makes his eye level equal to a slightly shorter man), Barkley slouching and I'll add Barkley's frame is the opposite of a lanky one, so it could make him seem shorter than if he had say, Conan O'Brien's build.
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
@JT: Barkley is not taller than Jordan. It depends on the pic. There are some where Jordan edges Barkley as well. Also Jordan is 6'4.5 not a legit 6'5. That's Rob's listing for him (he was initially listed at 6'4.75 here until someone made a comment to him and it was a fanboy who did). he was measured 6'4.5 when he was drafted and almost anyone who meets Jordan says he's between 6'4-6'5. Or 6'4 and change. Some even 6'4 or so. A guy measuring 6'4.75 at night especially in higher sneaks will never get guessed under 6'5" by guys around his height
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
@Rising; seeing as how the people on the internet say the same as people I've seen met him (never have heard one person assess him as 6'5.5 or 6'6), I would have to say that they are about as credible as we can get. He isn't even 6'5" and likely was told 6'4.75 at one point but also measured 5/8. He would measure both during the day likely
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
@Christian: I think his 6'5.5 was in shoes. Now I'm not doubting he could wake up that high but I have to believe he dips to 6'4.5 possibly at night too. My thinking is he's 6'5.25 out of bed 6'4.5 at night or could lose the inch as well.

@Rising

Then it doesn't make sense for a 6'5.5" Barkely to claim 6'4.75" I don't see any reason for him to downplay 3/4 of an inch. Someone who's actually 6'5.5" at their low, won't ever drop to 6'4.75" But someone's who's 6'4.75" at their low, will be about 6'5.5" at morning. This is why I believe his 6'5.5" claim was either made up, or he must've measured around it in the morning.

@JT I don't know about Hogans height back in the late 70's early to mid 80's but from me seeing him earlier this year and spending about a hour around him and chatting with him I can say without a shadow of a doubt he was not under 6'3.5" more like 6'4"
JT said on 23/Aug/17
Alan32080, Hall was billed 6'8" early on (before the Razor Ramon days) so I imagine he and Hogan were pretty close in height back then. You rarely get wrestlers standing perfectly straight right next to one another so these comparisons are just one way to get around that. They don't "prove" anyone's height although they should be pretty close to reality when everything (front and back ring ropes, edge of the ring, audience railings etc.) matches up.

I’d say around 2.5” inch difference Red not factoring in any footwear advantage. Click Here The heels on Hogan’s size 12 boots weren’t too large (probably under one inch) Click Here

Sid and Hogan from the same 1992 match Click Here It looks like around a 2 inch difference.

Aswin MK said on 22/Aug/17
Rob - Don't you think 6 foot 6 is a bit too much for Hogan. For example, if you refer to his staredown against a 6 foot-10 (perhaps less) tall Andre the Giant, he is clearly 5 or more inches shorter than Andre. 6 foot 5 would be the maximum we can give as he was as tall as Jake the Snake Roberts and a couple of inches or 3 shorter than the Undertaker.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Aug/17
Barkley sure looks to edge Majerle in JT's photo. They're extremely close in height as far as I can tell, closer than Barkley and Jordan are. I'd guess just a small fraction between them. Certainly less than an inch. Majerle saying he's taller than Barkley doesn't make it so.
Alan32080 said on 22/Aug/17
@JT that's pretty cool with all the people in the pictures for comparison. Hogan and Scott Hall look pretty close but I think Hogan edged him out by 1/2" to 3/4" then and possibly 1" to 1 1/8" in Hogans prime 77-84. Hogan only looked a 1 1/2" under taker. Good pictures. Thank you for sharing.

@Canson: I appreciate your comments about me, but I still think even if not referring to me that making a general statement like ignorant is an unfair one and unnecessary. I think JT and Vegas have certainly supported their opinion on Barkley at least as well as I have, so I think there are people on both sides of the argument that are aware of the pertinent information and have come to their own conclusions fairly. I don't see one photo, particularly one that's not even a full one is sufficient to conclude Barkley isn't as tall as Kobe. With Barkley being as controversial as he is, I've almost stopped posting comparisons unless they're videos or full pics to be more selective with the quality of evidenced. As you know, we simply disagree on the accuracy of random estimates. They're not proof, but they're worth mentioning and people can make up their own minds. I'd need a sample of the person's other estimates to see how well they judge height before I could say how much I consider it and I'd have to read the account myself to see if I believed or not the person claiming to have met Barkley had even met him to begin with. Some estimates will be more credible than others, but short of measuring, it's still all guesswork. In some cases, we agree on the reference we're comparing Barkley to, but disagree on the height difference(Kenny Smith), but in other cases we agree on the height difference and disagree on the reference's height(Mullin). So in some cases, the difference is not from upgrading someone else. Btw, here's the video I took the photo from of Barkley and Wade: Click Here

@Christian: It's not unreasonable to conclude that, in fact, I initially did myself, but claiming a precise figure doesn't make it anything more than what it is. It's still a claim as opposed to a verified fact. You say you believe Barkley "made up" the 6'5.5" claim. It follows that if Barkley has made up one height claim, he could have made up others and having lied about it in the past, any claim of his would have to be viewed as suspect. Barkley said "I claimed to be 6-6 when I played, but I'm only 6-5 1/2" It really doesn't make sense to me to lie in the context. Why still inflate his height while admitting he wasn't quite as tall as listed? Why would Barkley inflate his height after his career to begin with? He's a guy who has repeatedly stressed he isn't as tall as he claims and has even said himself his career is more impressive because of his lack of height. If he knew his height precisely to the quarter inch then why make up something like 6'5.5"? Of course this in itself doesn't prove Barkley is 6'5.5" either. He could have some unknown reason for inflating his height to 6'5.5" that time. Nor does a precise figure mean it comes from somewhere. Kevin Durant claimed recently to be 6'10.75" without shoes and I don't believe that for a second. Durant has said at other times he likes messing with people because they ask him about his height so much. Barkley could be the same way for all we know and picking a precise figure would be the way to do that. I did also hear once that Barkley supposedly claimed 6'5.25" when he was doing play by play for a Kings game in 2007. I don't know if this is true, but we also don't know for sure every height Barkley has ever claimed. That's why I've said consistently, I think this has to be settled by comparing Barkley to others. Barkley looks at least 2 cm taller than Jordan to me in the full photo JT posted and I believe Jordan is 6'4.75"-6'5" so that's just one of many reasons I believe Barkley is about 6'5.5".
Canson said on 20/Aug/17
@JT: Barkley is not taller than Majerle. Majerle acknowledge s here that he is taller in the second link below. He also says that Barkley is "maybe 6'5" on both links and says prob 6'4" in the second link. And Jordan is not shorter than Barkley they are roughly the same height

If he looked shorter than ~ 6’6” he’s either slouching like he often does or it’s a funny camera angle/tilt. He also has a pointy head.

Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 18/Aug/17
@Rising

Then why would Barkley also claim something so precise as 6'4.75"? He must have measured around that mark to claim it. And you never hear him claim 6'5.25" or 6'5.75", so 6'5.5" is something he just made up. A lot of people who inflate their heights sometimes add a half inch, but never a quarter or three quarters of an inch. Like The Rock for example, he once claimed to be 6'4.5", but not once has he ever claimed 6'4.75" or 6'4.25"
Canson said on 18/Aug/17
@Rising: I don't think Kobe is shorter than Barkley he actually looks taller. But it prob won't be a noticeable difference really if it's 1/8" difference. As for Wade and Barkley I'm not seeing anything but a different camera angle with the two and the fact Barkley is much "bigger" than Wade in the body weightwise. Christian's comment is totally correct tho because that is the norm here that most others with inflate him automatically. I can look all over the internet and see Barkley being guessed 6'4 or 6'4/6'5. and I'm definitely not saying you're ignorant at all because you provide your thoughts and are respectful in doing so

Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Aug/17
@Christian: No need to call anyone ignorant, especially since Barkley also claimed 6'5.5" and there's certainly been comparisons posted where he looks this and this includes full comparisons where shoes and ground are visible, including on this very page. It's easy to see why Barkley might downplay his height. He referred to himself as a 6'4" forward and then Jordan as a 6'6" guard in the same sentence then went onto say how doing what he did as a 6'6" forward made him career more impressive. Whether he did downplay his height is another question we obviously differ on, but it's obvious why he might given that quote. Referring to himself as 6'4" and then Jordan as 6'6" in itself is laughable, but it didn't stop Barkley from doing it. The fact Barkley has claimed even 6'4" without adding a fraction shows he has downplayed his height before since nobody thinks he's just 6'4". The lowest anyone seriously tries to argue is 6'4.5". And it wouldn't hurt Barkley at all downplaying his height since he was already a star in the league. Nobody was going to hesitate to give Barkley a contract because he claimed to be an inch shorter than he is. That doesn't apply to established superstars. What Barkley said is irrelevant to how well he played since claiming a lower height wouldn't magically make him shorter. Barkley could have said he was 5'10" in 1992 and it wouldn't have mattered so again, I don't get this point at all.

@Canson: Surely one low, side angle photo where only half their bodies aren't visible doesn't conclusively determine who is taller between them, especially since they're outside so ground is also a factor. Barkley has looked taller with both Jordan and Wade than Kobe did for instance. I do believe Barkley is slightly taller than Kobe, perhaps half an inch.

I give Barkley 6'5.5" barefoot and near 6'7" in shoes. I think peak Hogan has to be somewhere around 6'5", but no way is he as short as 6'2" today. Somewhere around 6'3" these days. Posture can make a big difference, especially when combined with a camera, which can distort reality even without posture. I give Kobe about 6'5" as well. I don't really picture Hogan ever being taller than someone like Kobe either to be honest. I'd think most of Hulk's height loss would be from the late 90s on, but I'd think enough even before that he'd have warranted a peak height had celebheights existed when Hulk was in his early 40s.
Canson said on 17/Aug/17
@RP: that I can agree with because he would easily clear 6'5 possibly make it to 6'5 1/2 or slightly below. What I was saying is he measured 6'4.75 so it means he isn't lying down about his height

@Christian: well said! Every bit of that post. And says even more when his own teammates and coaches have also said he's that height. But even after countless people who have played with him have said that people still want to say well it's not proof. Sure what better proof than someone who was around him day in and day out. Not like comparing him to someone who was unmeasured and is simply claiming a number. For all we know the person claiming a height in a pic with him can be two inches shorter than what they claim. Look at Jimmy Kimmel measuring AD in sneaks and saying that's his real height lol. Yes Barkley and MJ are close to 6'6" in sneaks but both around 6'4.5-.75 barefoot

Barkley himself claimed 6'4.75" several times, yet ignorant people still want to believe he's the 6'5.5" or 6'6" or 6'7" nonsense. Why would a basketball player downplay his height especially when every bit of height is crucial for the sport? People here will believe his 6'5.5" and 6'6" claims but ignore his 6'4.75" claims, because they want their favorite celebs to be as tall as possible.
Canson said on 15/Aug/17
@Vegas: if Barkley edged him likely meant Hulk had lost height by that point. I have a hard time telling when he lost height tho because he looked every bit of 6'5" at his peak. Maybe the boots not sure. But I would've had him taller than Barkley (not by much) in his peak maybe edging him by a cm 195.6 vs 194.6
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Aug/17
I had both Barkley and Hogan at 6'5.5" (peak) but Barkley really does look taller in the comparisons JT and Vegas have posted and Barkley does give a taller impression now that I think of it. And it's really an assumption Barkley measured 6'4 5/8" at the '92 Olympics. There was one list of heoights that knocked 2" off every NBA height except Stockton for some reason who just lost 1", but the only source for that 6'4 5/8" figure was a Sports Illustrated writer who said it was "learned" Barkley was "more like" 6'4 5/8" than 6'6". The writer doesn't say how they "learned" that and does not even say Barkley was 6'4 5/8" exactly, but around that, which could be taken to mean anything in the 6'4" and change range. This writer could have "learned" that from Chuck claiming he was 6'4" and change as he know he has before, or from a mere estimate. There was a 70s article on Robert Redford's height where the writer wound up estimating Redford at 5'9 3/4" and in the early days on this site, it was mistakenly believed Redford was actually measured because of the precise figure and wording. It was later learned that was just the writer's estimate, so regardless of Barkley's actual height, there needs to be something less ambiguous before it can be said he measured that height.

As for Hogan. He's still looked somewhere around 6'3" most of the time I've seen him in recent years, but he's been under 6'4" for quite some time as we can see with David Hasselhoff and Troy Aikman. I may have to rethink his peak height, though. I believe most of the knee surgeries, hip replacement and back surgery were from about '98/'99 on. I'm not sure, Hulk could have been just 6'5" based on Barkley as a reference, but that makes Trump's 6'2" peak height look questionable to say the least.

Again Dicksock: I respect your opinion but disagree with you. Erving for one is 6'5 1/2. Now you are using listed heights to justify. The NBA uses shoe heights. Erving is 6'7" on the roster 6'5 1/2 barefoot and yes he is taller than both Jordan and Barkley.

_________________

Where is your source for Erving's barefoot 6'5.5" measurement? If he were 6'7" in shoes he could have been 6'6.25" barefoot. Most sneakers don't add more than 1". This is especially true for shoes in the 1970s. He was not taller than Jordan in the picture I linked to and that was the best one I could find. Their eye level is identical and the tops of their heads are at the same point. He wasn't really taller than Barkley either. Barkley was several inches taller than him in one of the pictures and he was barely in front of him. If you can't see that, then that tells me everything I need to know. You clearly have no eye for comparing heights. Regarding the Rock comparison, I am baffled how anyone could see less than 3" between them. I am not inflating anyone's height. I am giving you actual listed heights. Hypothetically, even if Erving were 6'5.5", that would make Jordan 6'5.5" and Barkley was around .5" taller than Jordan. There is no realistic argument that can be made that Barkley was under 6'5". I would bet anything that I'm right on this. Again, the mugshots prove I'm right for a fact so I don't know why I'm even wasting my time with this nonsense. No 6'4.5" guy would look 6'7"-6'8" in a mugshot! Especially when the camera is 100% level with him like it was in the 6'7" shot.

wich would drop so much people 2cm down, it just can´t be true...

I can accept Hogan being 194cm in WCW, wich makes Barkley 197cm/ 6´5.5" wich he claimed too,
that also fit with his 6´6.5"-6´7" mugshot in footwear.

He is listed 6'6". from people who have met he and Barkley in person both are about that height both 6'4-6'5. I am not trying to be rude but you are inflating other people now to justify why he is taller and that is not a 4" difference that's less than 3" between Barkley and Rock. There is a blown up picture of the two and with Barkley having a tad more shoe (about a cm) that adds up making rock 188cm and Barkley 194-195. If Barkley was 6'6" barefoot he's gonna be listed no lower than 6'7" especially playing as a power forward. You have to realize when all of his teammates say he's that height they must know what they're talking about. So I respect your opinion but I of course disagree

The dude can literally look anywhere from 6'4.75" to 6'6.25"!!! But, did he have a bad measurement @ 6'4.75" for the 1992 Olympics? Probably? However... His "mean" ...."average" barefoot measuents throughout his life from ages 22-42 would be 6'5.25" is my best guess. And I'd put money on 6'5.25" !!

Dicksock, it’s possible Gene lost a little height by the mid 1990s (in his early 50s) but at around 5’8” I doubt too much. Gene’s wearing black dress loafers with Hogan in 1983 and with Barkley in 1995. He had a decent size heel in that one 1980 promo with Andre (but still less than ½ the size of Andre’s heel) but wore smaller heels in the other AWA promos when he and Andre compared shoe sizes.

Here’s Hogan (age 42) in cowboy boots from 1995 standing in the same spot in the ring that Barkley did earlier that evening and again looks shorter even if he fully stretched out. Click Here Big Show and Sting were at that same WCW event too Click Here Click Here (high camera angle favors Sting and he’s still around 3 inches shorter).

@Dicksock: it seems as if you are now getting a bit offensive in your tone saying I'm making excuses because I don't agree with you so I'll end our discussion since we disagree.but you seem to be the one "making the excuses" first of all Jordan is never been 6'6" barefoot. You are inflating him. He's between 6'4-6'5 (194-195cm) that's how most who have seen him guess him. That's what he was when he was drafted 6'4 1/2. So you've now inflated him to 6'6" and Jones is 6'3" range. That's the average guess and most who have met him say that as well. You're going off listed heights for both. Barkley does not have 4" on the rock. He is not slouching either that's clear 8cm and yes he does have a thicker sneaker than Rock. I mean I don't know why Danny Ainge and Dan Majerle and Guys like Moses Malone would call Barkley 6'4" if he isn't somewhere in the 6'4" range. They at least played with the guy so they should have an idea of how tall he is. But I respect your opinion if that's how you feel

________________

You are making excuses and your "evidence" is just hearsay. I'm going with a straight ahead, perfectly level mugshot that proves for a 100% fact that Barkley was 6'7" in shoes. You said mugshots add an inch, but we've seen the mugshot that added the inch to him and he was 6'8". Your evidence is just based on what others have said and assumptions as to what the NBA would list people as. I honestly don't know how you can't see the 4" between him and the Rock. Also, I have never heard Jon Jones described or listed as anything but 6'4" and Barkley looked AT LEAST 2" taller if not 2.5"-3".

Here is Micheal Jordan with 6'7" listed Julius Erving: Click Here
Both men are identical in height and that is a picture perfect comparison in every way. If this doesn't convince you Jordan was at least 6'6" then I don't know what to tell you. I'm not trying to "offend" you. I'm just presenting you with real factual evidence.

Here is Barkley with 6'7" listed Erving:
Click Here
Click Here

In the second pic, Erving is closer to the camera and still looks less than 1" taller if you factor in his hair. But, Barkley is a little closer int he first pic. That's why he looks taller than Dr. J. Clearly both men were very very close in height.

Barkley edged out Jordan by .5" here: Click Here

Look at the tops of their heads here: Click Here

Barkley is deceptively tall because of the shape of his head. He has an egg shaped head that adds almost an inch to his actual height. He looks 6'5" or so, but is actually 6'6" because of his head. You are free to ignore this evidence and disagree with me. I won't keeping debating with you if you don't want to, but I figured I'd show you my train of thought.

Barkley is taller in the first pic. In the second pic, Erving is closer to the camera and still only looks an inch taller at best if you take away his hair. So the two were very close in height and Dr. J was listed as 6'7".

Click Here

MJ and Erving were identical in height and Barkley edged out Jordan. This proves without a doubt that Jordan was at least 6'6" and Barkley may have been a tad above 6'6". This is totally consistent with Barkley's mugshot that showed him to be 6'7" in shoes. Thank you for directing me to the Erving comparisons because you just helped me prove my point. Barkley was easily 6'6" if not taller. This is a fact.

Those are good comparisons, but I remember Gene was fond of wearing big-heeled shoes in the AWA so your comparisons may be off by an .5" or so. Remember the Gene/Andre interviews from the AWA? Gene wore big heeled shoes/boots, plus he was 15 years younger.

Barkley was clearly around 6'7" in shoes based on his mugshot. Hogan was around 6'7" in cowboy boots and probably 6'5.25" or so barefoot.

@GS1981 I am also a legit 6'3" no more no less and I have met Hogan spent about 1 hour around him up close and he was taller than me. No footwear advantage. Bare minimum 6'3.5" but more like 6'4" my 6'5" SWAT partner just barely edged him out when they were standing side by side.

@Dicksock: Did you see where Rob also mentioned that the mugshot adds height to a person as he is not at even level with it? If Barkley were a legit 6'6" barefoot he would've been listed as 6'8" in the NBA no less than 6'7" especially being a power forward and that would make him Dennis Rodman's size almost and likely as tall or taller than reggie miller is when he is a lot shorter than Rodman and also an inch or so shorter than Miller. Jones is listed 6'4 but more likely 6'3" barefoot. Whereas solid 6'2" for the rock makes Barkley around the 194-195 mark as he only has 6-7cm on him taking into account footwear. Also Reggie Miller and other NBA stars have said as much as Jordan is between 6'4 and 6'5 as is Barkley.

_______________________

Barkley was just wearing regular sneakers with Rock and didn't have any real advantage. He also wasn't even standing fully straight. He was clearly around 4" taller. He was clearly at least 2" taller than 6'4" Jon Jones. And Jordan was at least a solid 6'5", if not 6'6". He looked to be at an even level in the first mugshot pic I posted, and he was still 6'7". Other than his these bogus 6'4 5/8" measurement claims, there is no actual evidence that shows him to be anything under 6'6". You can make up all the excuses you want, but the evidence speaks for itself. Jon Jones is listed as 6'4" on this site, and I dare you to watch the video I linked to and tell me you see less than 2" between him and Barkley. A 6'4.5" Barkley would make Jones 6'2"-6'2.5" and The Rock 6'0.5" tops.

Click Here The mugshot photo on the left is at a lower angle, which is why Barkley (probably in shoes) comes out around too tall at 6’8”; the right photo is at a better angle but still a little below head level. I doubt most who have just been arrested and are having their mugshot taken really care about standing to their full height (unless they are a wrestler who makes a living based in large part on how large and tall they supposedly are).

I’ve seen pictures and videos of Barkley looking around 4 inches taller than Marcus Allen, who I’ve stood close to and looked around 6’2”.
The supposed Olympics measurement for Barkley and others is probably fake as there’s no reason why they would have to be measured.

Barkley tends to slouch which is why he often looks shorter than he really is.

Regarding Charles Barkley's height, his mugshots show him to haven been 6'7"-6'8":

Let's assume he was in shoes and subtract an inch. So he'd be 6'6-6'7". It's pretty much impossible for him to be 6'4.75" or whatever he was allegedly measured at. People can claim whatever measurements they want, but the actual evidence speaks for itself.

Here he is looking 4" taller than 6'2.5" minimum Dwayne Johnson: Click Here

@Vegas: I don't know where that was shown but if Barkley edged him it was likely after Hulk had lost height. Hulk was 6'4" range prob in the 90s sometime. Barkley I'm 100% confident is what he was measured at the olympics 6'4 5/8. I never hear of anyone who met him Say he's much higher (sometimes hear 6'5 but never higher and often see people on Reddit and other places say the exact same thing that the people I actually know personally who have met him say about him 6'4-6'5 or 6'4.5ish or roughly as tall as I am). I would've believed a peak hogan was taller than him imho but maybe I'm wrong on it

Dick Sock, based on having meet him in person. @ The Roanoke Civic Center in Roanoke, VA in 1997. I was 21...I'm 5'11" barefoot ...Savage looked a solid 6'0" they day & 230 lbs@ 45 years old. However, he was in Cowboy boots ...most likely a 0.5" footwear advantage on me that day. I could easily accept 5'11.5" barefoot @ age 45 too. And 6'0" peak. There is also a photo of Hart & Savage standing beside of each other from 1986 or
1987...and Savage looks 0.5" taller than Hart. But, once again Savage was in cowboy boos & blue jeans...Hart was in wrestling boots & his Hart Foundation ring gear & leather jacket ...

________________

As I said, he was about 6'1" in cowboy boots and 5'11" barefoot. We've seen Bret and Savage next to each other when both were in ring gear and Hart was taller. Also, I doubt he would have lost any height by 45. If he was barely taller than Bret in cowboy boots, obviously Bret would have been taller than him if both were barefoot. Again, Hart was 6'0" at the most.

_______________________

I'm just curious how you think he could have been 6'0.5" when he was noticeably shorter than 6' Bret Hart in 1992. I think Savage is one of those guys people want to think was bigger than he was because he had such a larger than life personality. In reality, he was a pretty small wrestler until he turned into Bonesaw Mcgraw... Based on the evidence that I've seen, he was about 5'11" barefoot in his prime and in the 5'10" range in the 2000s.

@Danimal no possible way he's 6'2" now. I'm 6'3" which I have said a few times on this forum and I got measured last Thursday for my 3 month physical and Mental wellness check and still am holding 6'3" dead on the nose bare feet. He was taller than me by minimum 1/2" but in my personal opinion from up close observation more like 1" and that's with little footwear. He was damn close to a team member of mine who is 6'5" as a matter of fact when Tom relaxed posture in one of the pictures they were the same size. I have no reason to lie I could careless about making him bigger than he is or smaller for that matter. I have been trained to evaluate a person in regards to height, weight reactions to questions nervousness or under the influence of any substance so with my professional opinion I say 6'4" on the head but could be as low as 6'3.5" but I don't think that's the case. As for weight he's probably between 275lb - 290lb high side. And again that's a 20 year Veteran LEO's opinion.

It's wrestling. Take two or 3 inches off that and that was his peak height.

He is old and his knees and hips are ****ed. So take a couple inches off that and that's how tall he is now.
RONSTER said on 15/Jul/17
Great feedback everyone. What I can tell you from meeting him was that he gets a lot taller when he gets ready to move/walk as he then shifts in to his good side and briefly straightens his knees out. Something we have to keep in mind is that he is bald and I have thick curly hair, so there is another 1/2 inch at least. I agree he stands at just over 6'3" a lot of the time with his knees bent and hunching down, but he is still 6'4" or better if he stood tall. I think it just is uncomfortable for him given both his knees and hips were replaced. Also, he was for sure 3" taller in the 80's when I saw him up close with Andre.
62B. said on 15/Jul/17
@****sock and @canson: At just under 6'3" I am almost always the tallest person in any room at any given time. At the same time I do come across people randomly that are as tall or taller all the time. What I do find odd is how many people claim their height in shoes. A few guys at my work (that I had all pegged at 5'11" to maybe 6') had their physicals the other day. When I asked them how tall they were all three claimed 6'1". Now I know I am at least 3" taller than these guys, so I said "no way, maybe in your boots". To which they all said yes, they were in their works boots. If I were measured in my work boots I would be 6'4" all day long :)

@Dicksock: legit 6'3 guys are actually very tall. I am 6'4 and a little bit and still say they are very tall or that's 190+ at your lowest. But 6'6" is nearing the extreme category which essentially is 2M.

________________

Maybe people are just taller in the part of the world I live in? I'm about 5'10" out of bed and it seems like most guys are taller than me. Even lots of girls/women I see are 5'7"-5'10". Anytime I go a bar, grocery store, sporting event, restaurant, etc, I see several guys that are at least 6'3". For example, I just went a baseball game and there were dozens of guys that I walked past who were 6'3" or taller. I'm telling you for a fact that 6'3" is not that tall where I live. A guy's height doesn't stand out to me unless he's at least 6'4"-6'6". I think people start getting into "giant" territory when they are 6'9" or above. I've seen maybe a dozen guys in my life who were 6'9"-7" and only one who was maybe 7'2" or something. One of my friends in college was a legit 6'9" basketball player and I saw him almost everyday. One of my best friends was a tad over 6'4" (seen him measured personally) so I know exactly what I'm talking about. 6'3" is tall, but not what I would consider very tall.

This picture is much better. He is about 7" taller than you in the afternoon. I thought he may have been 8" taller if he stood straight, but he is about 7" taller. So if you're 5'8"/5'8.25", Hogan is about 6'3.25" in your second pic. You're not up to his eyes in the first pic either. The very top of your head is at the bottom of his nose. He looks taller next to you in the first pic than the second. I will be a little generous and guess his height as 6'3.5" and his weight as 270 lbs. He's definitely not over 6'4" 295 lbs next to you. Sorry, but he's not.

Thanks for your pics, great stuff
What´s your exact height from getting out of bed to late evening?
If I put you at 5´8", I can see a maximum of 6´3.5", is he really able today to stretch his knees out??

btw I know people still training judo after hip replacement and near age 70, no noticable heightloss.
I believe his heightloss comes from his back and not being able to stretch his legs like a healthy man.

2" maximum heightloss, wich is far more than usual.

Here is the other picture taken the same day. Both were taken in the afternoon so not at his tallest. Notice that in the first one I came up to his eyes and now I'm at the bottom of his nose. Also, he was still not standing straight and had his knees bent quite a bit. My arms are a bit over 17", his dwarf mine so they are still well over 20" in his 60's.

--------------------------
Looks about the same as how 5'8" guys come up to me and I'm just under 6'3" barefoot, but you say his knees are bent, so he is probably still the full 6'3".
John B said on 14/Jul/17
If RonSter is 5'8 barefoot, he is 5'9 with foot ware on standing next with Hulk - making Hogan legit 6'3 - but as you can see Hogan's knees are bent also leaning a little, so 6'4 is not really out of the question. Go back to the Mid 80's Hogan was clearly a 6'5 maybe 6'6 ? guy, way before hip / knee replacements and a ton of back surgerys plus age... his clams for been 6'7 at one time in his life was not really that far off...
Canson said on 13/Jul/17
@Dicksock: legit 6'3 guys are actually very tall. I am 6'4 and a little bit and still say they are very tall or that's 190+ at your lowest. But 6'6" is nearing the extreme category which essentially is 2M.

Ronster: Good pic. I would say he looks about 7" taller than you, maybe 8" if he stood to his full height. Taking his posture into consideration, I'd say he's losing about an inch. Assuming you are really 5'8" (not trying to call you a liar), Hogan looks about 6'3" with bad posture and 6'4" if he stood perfectly straight. What time of day was the picture taken in?

As far as his weight goes, it's hard to pinpoint it based on that picture. If I had to guess, I'd say he looks no less than 260 lbs. I honestly doubt he was 295 lbs in that pic. I'll say between 270 and 280.
Alan32080 said on 12/Jul/17
@Ronster he looks a shade over 6'3" in that pick barefoot if you both have same shoes. My nephew is 13 and 5'8" bare feet and 5'9" with shoes. I look exactly the same with him as you do with Hogan in pictures. I'm 6'3" and in shoes depending on which ones hit 6'4" to 6'4 1/4".
RP said on 11/Jul/17
JT, one thing to note on the peak Hogan & Barkeky comparison is this...those pics are about 15 years apart ...1981/1982 vs 1996 I do believe? Can we just assume that Mean Gene lost zero height over those 15 years?? Not even 1/2" an inch?? But, I agree ...peak Hogan 6'5.5" barefoot ...6'5.75" Max! And 6'5" flat by the early 1990's.
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@RP: Danny Ainge tho 6'4" barefoot (6'5" with shoes). Remember I read when Barkley claimed 6'6" once in Phoenix at a press conference he said im 6'4" and you're maybe 1/2" taller than me.
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@JT: agree on Hogan 6'5-6'5.25 tops. May have woke up to 6'6" or at worst 6'5.75 and been between the two at the end of the day in the low 196 range.barkley tho was never 6'6". People I know that have met him say he's my size I myself am 6'4 3/8. Of the three I know one has met him twice and is 6'3" and said Barkley is precisely an inch and a half while the others have all said 6'4/6'5 and measured 6'4 5/8 at the olympics. Reggie Miller is taller than Barkley very clearly on TNT in studio and when they were at the Mayweather Pacquiao fight and he's admitted to being 6'5-6'6 himself (he's also shorter than jalen Rose).
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@RP: agreed on most!! Barkley is taller than ainge. Ainge however said Barkley was about 1/2" taller. And rMajerle said recently Charles is "maybe 6'5" "probably 6'4". Def not a solid 6'4 but I buy the 6'4 5/8 (weak 6'5) he measured at the olympics as a walking height in the afternoon. Chambers too I definitely agree on I'd have said 6'9" solid easy but he's very well proportioned too. But I never noticed the difference with Miller. Didn't see a lot of them together but I've seen Chambers next to Xavier McDaniel and X admitted to being closer to 6'6". Chambers looked a good amount taller than he was in pics. Looked a very good 3" or so. X ar most 1.5" over Jordan who I always viewed the way Pat Riley described 6'4.5 barefoot (also know several people who've met MJ and said we're pretty much the same height people close in height with me too).
David Banner said on 11/Jul/17
@Ronster - that is a great pic. I respect you 100% for posting it. Very cool. Knowing your height and based on that pic alone, I'd guess his height at 6'2"-6'2.5" and about 265lbs. Just my opinion. I look very much forward to the other pic where you said he's standing a bit straighter!

Guys, is there ANY way possible that Hulk was 6'4" peak and 6'2" now (barefoot)?
Seems like the majority of people on this forum guess 6'5"-6'6" peak and 6'3"-6'4" now.
It's just so strange because he stacks up shorter looking a lot of the time. I mean 6'5"-6'6" is VERY tall.

_________________

It's not that tall. I see people all the time that are 6'3"-6'5". Once you start getting to 6'6" and above, that is very tall. Hogan had the exact frame of a big 6'5" guy in his prime. Plus, the 6'6" ring announcer from WM II said Hogan was 6'5"-6'6", 6'5" Tiny Lister said Hogan was 6'5", Steve Austin said he was 6'5"-6'6", Eric Bischoff referred to him as 6'6". I think 6'5"/6'5.5" is fair for his prime and 6'3"/6'3.5" is accurate now. He looks maybe 1.5"-2" shorter now than in his prime.

So JT. What is your official peak Hulk Hogan height guess?

No more than 6'5". In cowboy boots Hogan was shorter next to Mean Gene than Charles Barkley in regular shoes was (around 6'6" but downplays his height) Click Here so it's hard to argue anything taller than that for Hogan.
RP said on 10/Jul/17
Canson...most likely.
Just looked at some old Phoenix Suns team pictures. Tom was 0.5" to 0.75" taller than 6'9" listed Oliver Miller. And on film he looked 4" to 4.5" taller than Barkley. Also, Barkeky looked a full 1" taller than 6'5" listed Danny Ainge.
RONSTER said on 10/Jul/17
Here is the picture of myself and Hulk. For reference, I stood as straight and tall as I could, I'm a bit over 5'8" barefoot and our footwear was exactly the same. He was leaning in, and you cannot see it but his knees were bent dropping his height by at least 2 inches. His head also is massive, I have a large size head. As for weight, I am 202lbs, look how tiny I look next to him for those who think he might be less than the 295lbs he says he is, no chance he is anything under 290. I want to see what people say, then I'll post another from the same day with him standing straighter. To me he was easily still over 6'4" barefoot.

When you see someone that tall in public it's very noticeable.
I really need to meet him in person. Because like it or not, my observations are only opinions until then.
It would be really cool if people who have met him would start posting pics for everyone to check out.

Hulk in cowboy boots didn't look close in height to Magic Johnson, who was probably strong 6’7” and add another inch for his loafers.


_______________

Not close? Magic looked like 1.5" taller max. He was a solid 6'7"/6'7.5" barefoot and probably 6'8"/6'8.25" in his shoes. Hogan was 6'5"/6'5.5" barefoot and probably at least 6'6.5" in those cowboy boots.
RP said on 4/Jul/17
JT ..Magic 6'8.5" to 6'8.75" in dress shoes is a pretty accurate guess. Hogan 6'7.25" to 6'7.5" in cowboy boots in the early to mid 80's !? Possibly ? I'm sure still shots of video of Ed McMahon, Magic & Hogan can be posted to compare. This was once done with still shots from The Arsenio Hall Show from '89-'90...and At that time Magic in 1" footwear looked at least 1" to 1.25" taller than Hogan in 1.75" footwear.

Finally a guy we kind of agree on. I saw Hogan up close in 1980. He was only marginally taller than my slightly over 6'4" Grandfather. 6'5" to maybe 6'5.5" for a peak Hogan is my guess. Today 6'3" looks about right.

I think peak he was 6'6" out of bed hell he even could have been 6'6.5" in the a.m. Who knows but as for now he's holding a super strong 6'3.5 - 6'4" all day.
Ebrahim said on 1/Jul/17
When I hear people say he was 6'6" I used to tell them to GTFO but, I watched old matches with him and Sid vicious and Scott Hall, and he looks to be of similar height, even taller than Hall. I just can't wrap my head around how much height he lost, I have 2 herniated discs and a spinal misallignment and how much height did I lose? 5/8" max? He appeared to be around 6'6" back then, but I wouldn't rule out he was wearing lifts.

Hulk Undertaker Staredown from 2002. Taker looks more than 3 but less than 4" taller.

________________

That should absolute proof of Hogan's height loss. In 1991, Taker was maybe 1.5" taller. I will say in the clip from 2002, Taker had a footwear advantage. He looked about 4" taller, but if you take away the footwear advantage he was about 3" taller; maybe a tad more. This clip shows me that Hogan has not lost any significant height since 2002. He looked roughly the same height in 2013 with Brock that he did with Taker in 2002. He was maybe 6'3.5"-6'4" in 2002. He's still 6'3"-6'3.5" from what I can tell. He was probably 6'5.5" at his tallest. Footwear may have played a factor in him looking taller in his prime though.
Canson said on 1/Jul/17
@Dicksock: maybe about the interview but my point was a peak Hogan I'd put maybe 6'5" maybe a strong 6'5" tops. I don't think it was lister but can't remember. Maybe it was I was essentially saying he wasn't 6'7" or 6'6

_____________

You've got that slightly wrong. I'm assuming you're referring to the Tiny Lister interview. He said Hogan was 6'5" barefoot and that he (Tiny) was given boots that made him 6'7". Lister claimed he was 6'7" in those boots to make him taller than Hogan. So Hogan was not 6'7" even in wrestling boots. He did only look very slightly shorter than Lister in the WWF. But in the movie, he was about an inch or so shorter.

Hogan with a 1" footwear advantage looks 4" to 4.5" taller than Ed McMahon. Which would make him 3" to 3.5" taller if both men are barefoot. The question is, how tall was a 60 year old Ed McMahon? I've always heard that he was a legit 6'3" in his prime?? But, probably more like 6'2" at age 59-60.
59 year old Ed McMahon: 6'2"
29 year old Hulk Hogan: 6'5.5"
IMO
anonymous1 said on 28/Jun/17
...I'm sure this has been covered, but I just re-saw Hogan on a 1982 Tonight Show with Carson. First of all, the guy was a monster, back in the day. He may have had heels, but he was clearly bigger and taller than Ed McMahon, who was what, 6'3 or 6'4, and not skinny. Next to Johnny, Hogan was like a different species of man, size-wise.
David Banner said on 28/Jun/17
@Ronster - I never claimed to have met him. I know 2 different people that have on different occasions and they both guessed around 6'2". I don't know for sure how tall he is as I never have had the pleasure of seeing him in person. Looking forward to the pic
RONSTER said on 28/Jun/17
David Banner, as soon as you say he's nothing over 6'2" now claiming you've met him proves you are lying or just cannot judge height at all. It seems the only people who say he is anything under 6'4" today and between 6'6-6'7" peak are the same people who've been doing it for years and have never met him. The main reasons most people get his height wrong is because one they don't take into account his horrible posture and bent knees, and second is his huge head, someone who is 6'3" says he was no taller than me we were eye to eye, but his head is 2" taller than yours! Really not that complicated it hard to see. I will post a picture I have with him again soon to prove my point.
The Ben said on 27/Jun/17
Just looking through old Hogan pics, you can see on all front bicep shots that his hips kick out to the left, looks like postural issues from as far back as 86.
Anonymous1 said on 26/Jun/17
..just watched a Youtube clip of Hogan, and he states that when he first started out, his mom measured him barefoot, at 6'7. Then he went on to say that 30 years of leg drops and all else (curved spine, hip, knee, back surgeries included) brought him to 6'4. It's quite possible that he was down to 6'4 in the late 90's, just based on a curved spine from countless leg drops, and compression of it. I can see someone inflating the truth about what they are now. But why inflate the truth of something he even admits was 3 or more decades ago, and is not something he admits he's close to, now. I believe him (on the 6'7 part). Others can, and will, disagree.

@Dicksock - Lesnar looks at least same height as Hogan on that footage when they are face to face.

________________

You're wrong. Look at the top of their heads and line them up. It's clear Hogan was taller, and Lesnar was tip toeing around trying to look taller. Hogan was about an inch taller and had worse posture. Also, I never said he was much over 6'3". I said about 6'3.5" by the evening. He is for sure at least 6'3" though. He may still measure 6'4" or a tad over out of bed. The average man loses .6" from morning till night.
Bazza said on 23/Jun/17

I agree ****sock, Hogan has lost just under 2 inches from his prime of just over 6'5. He's above 6'3 today in good posture but by how much is debatable.

Some on here believe he'd already lost 2 inches by the early 90's!

Here is Hogan from 2013 with legit 6'5" Joseph Park/Abyss: Click Here

He looks at least 6'3.5" to me.

Here he is with 6'2" Brock Lesnar in 2014: Click Here

Both guys were in sneakers and Lesnar was even tip toeing to try to look taller. Once again Hogan looked 6'3.5".
My guess is that he is legit 6'4" or a tad more out of bed and is about 6'3.5" by the evening. He was probably 6'6" out of bed at his tallest and 6'5/6'5.5" evening. So he's lost a good 1.5-2".
Alan32080 said on 21/Jun/17
@ David Banner well I met him within the past year and I'm 6'3" dead flat and I know this because my job requires us to take physical and mental exams every 90 days and they measure us barefoot in a hospital gown.
He was taller than me by 1/2" minimum and the impression I got was 1".
Another guy on our SWAT Team is 6'5" and Hogan was from perception only a tad shorter not to visible so 6'2" is not even a option. We asked him his height and he said a little over 6'4" and maybe in shoes he's pretty close to 6'5"
Canson said on 21/Jun/17
@David Banner: 6'2" seems a bit Low for him even today but I can buy maybe an inch higher and 6'5-6'5.25 peak as he did admit to being 6'5" before and another wrestler once said he is the same height as him at 6'5". He wore boots a lot when he was at his peak so a 6'5" and change guy ESP if that's his lowest height would easily be 6'6.5-6'7 looking in cowboy boots
David Banner said on 21/Jun/17
@Ronster - still a hole of an opinion dude. Show pics. Also, he was clearly never 6'6.5"-6'7" barefoot. So your opinion hole got even deeper once you said that. I know two people that have met him on different occassions in the past 2 years and both said he is nothing over 6'2" now.
RONSTER said on 20/Jun/17
Opinions are like but holes, everyone has one lol. However, when it comes to something like this only people who have met and stood next to Hogan can give one that matters, photos are useless and mean nothing. I can look a half foot taller or shorter in pictures as can anyone. I for that matter have met and stood with Hogan both when he was in his early 30's and just two years ago post back surgery. The man lost a lot of height from his youth, and most of these photos that show him shorter are due to bent knees and poor posture. I can say for sure he was at least 6'6.5"-6'7" barefoot the first time and was still at least 6'4" barefoot the last time. He had identical type runners to mine but was standing with his knees bent a lot and leaning to one side and still was 6'4" next to me in shoes, so that meant he was barefoot over 6'4" easily. And he also has maintained most of his upper body size aside from his arms being a few inches smaller (still over 20" though at 63!), so he easily tops the scales at 290-300lbs. His legs are smaller now yes but they are still big as well.

Hogan was at Least 6'5 during his peak since he was at the same height as John Tenta and Tiny "Zeus" Lister. Give or take 0.25 Inches. Remember Hogan was billed as low as 6'6. He was mentioned as 6'5 - 6'6. Sid justice Always had a Good 2 inch on Hogan.

Peak 6'5
Wrestling boots 6'6 - 6'6.25
Cowboy boots 6'7

Of course Hogan wan't break kayfabe. He Will always claim 6'7 peak.

Interestingly Hogan has just put a photo on his Instagram today saying he'll get under 300lbs this weekend.

Hulk is no more than 6'2" now
Also, Hogan was never over 6'4"
Andre was never over 6'9"
Studd was never over 6'5"
Why is it so hard for people to comprehend that they wore lifts and played on the camera angles and stood on boxes and stood next to short refs and interviewers?
________________________________________________________________________-

Its doubtful Andre was wearing lifts when I bumped into him at the air port, He was huge and looked 7' but was probably somewhere between 6'10" and 6'11". Hogan in 1980 pre WWF and probably not wearing lifts was slightly taller than my Grandfather when we saw him, who at the time was a little over 6'4" and normally wore shoes with a heel. Peak Andre was probably very close to 7' and a peak Hogan was 6'5" to 6'5 1/2".
The Ben said on 8/Jun/17
Another thing I would say is when I was stood near Hogan I would have said 6'3 tops due to his bizarre body proportions and obviously shrunken legs, hips and lower back.
It was only when I saw my photo of Hulk and I and my friends photo of them together that I could see the full height difference.
Hogan has a huge and this I believe makes him appears shorter.
He's still a very big guy.
The Ben said on 8/Jun/17
Meeting him 2 years ago I would have said a strong 6'3, touching 6'4.
I think he's only lost 1.5"-2.0" max.
I'd say 6'5.5 peak.
I've met lots of wrestlers over the years and Hulk was still an enormous man.
I met him with a friend who's 6'2, fat and 310lbs. Even though my friend was fatter you could see Hogan had a far larger frame. He was a very big thick guy, the type of size you very rarely see, somebody who would definitely make you take a second look.
His hips and legs looked very crooked and you could see he had no ass. His upper body and arms were huge, giant hands and head.

There are lots of wrestlers I've met who were smaller than I expected (Steiner, Shamrock, Piper, Flair) but there are also some bigger. I can easily see a peak Hulk between 290 and 320.

They don't always put wrestlers weights up, I know taker was billed at 328 in the ministry of darkness days, at one point with eating and drinking on the road he hit 350 and tried to cover up with a baggy shirt.
There was an interview with Shaq talking about it.
Taker was basically fat.
Austin openly struggles with weight has been up to 280 in recent years, Ted Dibiase also openly talks about weight problems and hitting 330lbs.

Hulk is no more than 6'2" now
Also, Hogan was never over 6'4"
Andre was never over 6'9"
Studd was never over 6'5"
Why is it so hard for people to comprehend that they wore lifts and played on the camera angles and stood on boxes and stood next to short refs and interviewers?

I agree with Rob!

Action figure being sold in his own store Click Here
Editor Rob: the guy who made that datasheet has to have been trolling there...he'd have been given the data to enter, must have changed it just before it went to a full print run.
RP said on 1/Jun/17
Hmmmm? Vegas?...I need to see pics of that action figure for confirmation? Chances are it says 6'7" & 302 lbs & not 6'2" & 302 lbs...otherwise that 6'2" is a major typo. I've never, ever seen a listing lower than a 6'5" billing or claim for Hogan from his physical prime. Almost all wrestling merchandise has or had him at 6'7" & 302 lbs from that era. With a few 6'8" listings ...maybe a random fluke 6'6" listing once in a blue moon...and almost all weight billings being 302, 303 or 305. With a random few going up to 320 to 325 & a random few going as low as 294 & 295.

What I found interesting is that in his own store in Orlando he is selling an action figure of himself and the stats on it read..height 6'2, weight 302lb

Hulk hogan is 6,4 he is a little bit taller than the Rock.
Lol said on 25/May/17
I'm 6'4. Met him 2 years ago.

He's about 6'2.

Was probably 6'6 before all the surgeries on his back and knees.

Hulk seems to have gotten the 6'7" peak and 6'4.5" recent from his mother measuring him, but he never says she had them take their shoes off.

_____________

In the interview with "The Voice", I'm about 99% sure he said he would be interviewed barefoot. I can't find the interview anymore, but I'm almost positive that's what he said.

An easy 6'5 back in the 70s and 80s and more likely 6'3 today.

Btw, Hulk's mother died when he was 57. 6'4.5" would have to be in shoes since he's been shorter than Troy Aikman and David Hasselhoff for a while and I still say 6'5.5" peak so 6'7" or within would be easy in a lot of footwear, or I'm almost any footwear early in the day. Seems most of his height loss came from surgeries.

Canson, I thought you were a bit over 6'4"??
Bazza said on 18/May/17
@****sock - your stats make sense. i have watched some WWF footage from circa 1990 recently and i can see 6'5 flat around that time but no more. i think early 80s he may have hit 6'5.5 and that was his peak height. He walks around about strong 6'2 with his bad posture these days but i could buy him being around a strong 6'3 when standing up straight today.

@Ryan11 possibly weighs 270 - 280 high end.
RYAN11 said on 17/May/17
To Arby and Canson, one if he wS eye level with you he was at least an inch taller because I seriously doubt your head is nearly as large as his, and to the other, was he standing straight and tall like I'm sure you were? I bet anything he was bent knees and slouching like always.
Canson said on 17/May/17
Alan32080: he for sure isn't 6'4" or 6'5". We were eye level. I'm between 6'3-6'3.25 so maybe he's 6'3.25-.5 that's the most he is
RYAN11 said on 16/May/17
Alan32080, I also met him a couple years ago post back surgery and he was easily 6'4" barefoot. How much would you estimate he weighs? Muscle weighs a lot more than fat and he is still really built especially upper body wise so I estimate him around 280-290lbs still
Alan32080 said on 14/May/17
@Arby I only met him once but we both had flops on and I'm 6'3" on the nose and he was taller. Not like inches but visibly taller. One of the swat guys is 6'5" and Hogan was pretty close to him obviously my guy was taller but not by much maybe 1.5" max but more like a inch. This was around 8:30 to 9:00 in the morning at a private shooting range in Tampa where swat and national guard shoot as well as some private members.
Bazza said on 13/May/17
peak 80's max - 6'5

today - 6'2.5 / 6'3 tops.
Arby said on 13/May/17
Alan32080: I'm actually a hair over 6'3. I haven't been measured in a while but I've always been between 6'3-6'3.25. I've met Hogan more than once and he looked me dead in the eye with similar footwear.
straightahead said on 12/May/17
Haha what a load of crap! a legit 310 lbs Hogan would had been billed to 350 to say atleast, most likely much more, but he was billed 297-303 when he was at his bulkiest (late 80's / early 90's) which tells us that he was never more than 270-275 in wwf.

in wcw nwo days he was nothing more than approx 240
day day said on 12/May/17
I was a wrestling talent scout for 9 years 83-92 in the us canada and japan i had a breif stint in wwf in 1989 wrestlers are measured in their wrestlig attire and boots then given an extra inch i seen hogan on 2 ocassions my estamation for hulk barefoot would be shy of 6'6 300lbs i was 6'4 272lbs back then id say hes 6'3.5 250lbs today
Alan32080 said on 11/May/17
@Arby I am also 6'3" barefoot flat and I have good posture and he was taller than me. The lowest he could be is 6'3.5" and probably wakes up at 6'4" which is what I thought when I met him which was around 9 a.m. maybe a little earlier.
Junior31 said on 11/May/17
Easily 300lbs plus at peak. While in the WWF he was every bit of 310. When he got to wcw and laid off the steroids a bit went down to about 270-275.
