I am not a troll just a big fan of WWF wrestling and i have a number of favourites. Kevin nash. Now i do believe kevin was ft6,10 1999_2000. I may be 1/2 inch off kevin. Ft6,9.5. But terry is probably the greatest WWF wrestler there has been. No.??
Daniel reynolds said on 19/Apr/19
Dotiris gravas : my point has been hogan has been involved in wrestling since 1970,s. His debute was 1979 to the WWF. He has wrestled before then if you look at footages. Now how many years is that.???? You said his ops were 2009, but you have got to look at the toll from wrestling long before then. As i mentioned enough, bounces on the head and back for the past 30 years or so. You tell me how i can notice a difference between hogan 2005 compared to 1977 for example. You tell me how it is then that WWF wrestlers do shrink with time. I am interested to hear. Terry you can give an exception for anyway regardless. But there are others also. Buy the way you do realise the great khali was in fact ft7,1 true height in his prime yes. Not ft6,9.!!??.

@Dan Reynolds: you admitted that you are a fan of Hulk Hogan. That seems to have clouded your judgment regarding his height. But liking a celeb should not result in wanting them to be taller than they are or arguing that they are
MelvinJones said on 18/Apr/19
I was a big fan of Hulk Hogan too but professional wrestling always exaggerates wrestlers heights and weights. Hogan was probably 6'5 at his tallest with 1 1/2 inch lifts in his boots.
RP said on 18/Apr/19
At Sotiris...yeah, Hogan was only 2.25” taller than Sting when he first joined the WCW.
Note: Sting’s wrestling boots were huge & thick. Height boosters of 1.625” to 1.75” ...pretty close to 1.875” height boosting cowboy boots.but, you’re right...Hogan was 2.25” taller than a 6’2” to 6’2.25” Sting from 1995-1998. All kinds of evidence all there that proves it. Sting also was on an episode of Thunder In Paradise. There was a scene with Hogan & Sting both barefoot in wetsuits/swim gear...and guess what?...Hogan was only 2.25” taller. I think that episode was in 1994...maybe 1995?? Last time I saw Hogan with Sting (about a year ago) 2018...Hogan was 1.75” taller.

I dont doubt that Hogan did infact measure 6'7" at his peak. However I think it was in his cowboyboots which he wore alot back then. I think 6'5.5" peak but I wouldn't be surprised if he was 6'5-6'5.25" either.

Not under 6'3" today though since his surgeries, he is standing alot straighter again.
Daniel reynolds said on 18/Apr/19
No i,m not a troll just was a great fan of terry hulk hogan. It really anoys me when people will down grade his height of his prime to what they think would be the same today. Really crazy. It is a shame terry isn,t as tall as he was in his prime because people would see it themselves. Obviously there were much bigger men i thought were very good. I am also a great fan of mark calloway, dwayne johnson, stone dold steve austin. I thought giant gonzalez height of ft7,6 is most impressive. When he stood up against mark in the ring 1 year he made mark look like a lepricorn. I would say though and i,m not just saying this because i was a fan of terry hulk hogan, but terry was probably the grestest WWF wrestling of all time. If he wasn,t then he would of been up there.
Sotiris Gravas said on 17/Apr/19
Just a reminder to ppl/fans/fanboys/Hulk Hogan pretending to be Daniel Reynolds (we know it's you)/trolls:

Here's Hogan (in cowboy boots) looking nowhere near the 6'7" or 6'8" fanboys want him to be next to 6'2" peak-height Sting back in 1995... Click Here

As for height loss, Hogan underwent back surgery in 2009, not prior to his match w/ Sting. Where did all of his height go? Maybe The Rock dressed as the Tooth Fairy paid him a visit and magically took it away. Here's a list of his operations which began in 1998... Click Here

Hogan was only 42 in that 1995 match w/ Sting.

On his reality show, Hogan said his daughter was 6 feet tall, when in "reality," she's all of 5'9.75".
Funny how his son, Nick, is only listed as 6 feet tall online. You'd think the guy would be taller if his dad were really 6'8" peak height. Sorry, gents -- reality and wrestling just don't mix.

Today, Hogan (age 65) is max 6'2.5", and Sting (age 60) is max 6'1.5".
MelvinJones said on 17/Apr/19
Could Daniel Reynolds really be Hulk Hogan trolling ?
Daniel reynolds said on 17/Apr/19
Tr3b. You must be tripping to think that terry was ft6,4.5 in his prime. Ft6,6 is alot more sensible than you ft6,4.5 estimation. I have to really disagree with you. As i have mentioned his ops with 2 discs removed years of bounces on the head and back along with a curbed spine and age now also. Terry has been involved in wrestling since the 1970,s. Terry is in his 60,s now.if he is ft6,3.5 today then he has done very well indeed. He can,t even stand up straight today. Mark was over ft6,6 inhis prime indeed that was very noticeable.
Canson said on 17/Apr/19
6’4.25 is too low. I doubt 6’5.5-6’6 but 6’5-6’5.5 is possible. Closer to 6’5” than 6’6” as well
Tr3b said on 16/Apr/19
6’4.25” at a low for hogan in his prime is very fair. He wasn’t a 6’5.5”-6’6” guy. The undertaker was more the 6’6” guy.

@Viper: Hogan is a lot like Undertaker in that he rarely walks straight. I think at their peaks there was 1.5-2” between them. Now anywhere from 2.5-3” between them
viper said on 15/Apr/19
Dale only looks 6-0 in a lot of pics for some reason.

I agree with Sotiris that doesn't show Hogan to be 6-3
Editor Rob
Last time I spoke to dale was in March, he still looked over 6ft 1, but I don't think he stands as tall as he can measure in some photos.

"Under 6'3 "

He stands tall here for once and is around the exact same size as Hoff, neither of the two seem to like it.

@Daniel reynolds. This is Hulks debut. Probably the most honest physical description that has ever been televised. Click Here go to about 1:50 mark. And even this may be a slight exaggeration for kayfab.
Canson said on 15/Apr/19
@Dan Reynolds: Lennox Lewis was actually measured 6’4.75 at one point not a full 6’5”. By this site’s standards (afternoon heights), it’s possible he is that or perhaps a little lower like 6’4.5. As for Hogan, nobody is discrediting his mother. But his mother may have mismeasured him or he may not be telling the truth. Im not accusing him of lying. Nobody here is but what we are all saying is that you can’t believe what the Rock and Hogan say relative to their own heights when neither of these guys look the heights they claimed at their peaks. While Hogan has lost considerable height (6’5-6’6 max) to 6’3 today, we can’t say the same about Rock because he hasn’t had the injuries or the surgeries that Hogan has had which include removing vertebrae from his spine. Rock was never 6’5” he was 6’2-6’3 peak and 6’2 today. There is no reason for him to have lost 3” in height with not significant injuries. It’s no different than a guy on the street who told me he was 6’5 once when I’m a good 1.5-2” taller than him at 6’4.25. This guy wasn’t more than 6’2.5-6’3. This is among the many times that people have lied about their heights but that’s one of the more egregious. I’ve seen several 6’2 range guys say they’re 6’4” when they’re really not even a proper 6’4” with shoes on. In some cases when you actually take it to the tape measure or stadiometer, the truth comes out. They then say “well I’m that with shoes on” etc or they just make up a number they like. Hogan and Rock were wrestlers and just like any other wrestler they are fibbed by WWE. If Hogan were actually 6’7” barefoot he would be listed 6’10 probably just like the undertaker who was 6’7” not 6’8”
Daniel reynolds said on 15/Apr/19
Canson, You said solitas gravas is catching out people like me with his proof. But like i mentioned pics of hogans best days are not being posted. Like i mentioned the pic with hogan and chris loyd and hogan with bill anderson for example. Everyone please take a very good look at that pic with hogan and loyd and ask yourself.??? I did read the great khalis height. I read a lot of comments on behalf of his height. Theres a man ft7,1. Now if we are talking about the same solitas gravas he listed the great khali at ft6,9 on his sight.!!! If that is the case then i must be ft5,6 for real not ft5,10 for real.!!!

Rob is that guy Dale 6'2 in person? Click Here

Looks solid 6'2 in many photos there and 6'2+ with Magnus yet under 6'2 with RVD
Editor Rob
Well he's over 6ft 1 for sure, I would have said if he was 6ft 2 he's not far off it if measured.
Daniel reynolds said on 15/Apr/19
Heres a suggestion. How about looking at pics of hogan and post the ones you dont really want to post. Of course it will controdict the doubters. Lets say for example hogan with chris loyd walking along. Hogan did have footware advantage but how tall was chris loyd ft6,0.5_ft6,1. Hogan towers him and lets not forget hogan was looking down where he would of lost 2 inches by not looking straight ahead. Big bill anderson is another. Listed at ft6,4 standing next to hogan shaking hands. Why he was called big bill i haven,t a clue. James buster douglas was in fact ft6,4 1990 no less and you can argue that i really don,t care. I have always known since 1990 he was ft6,4. He may be ft6,3 now. But look at 2 pics with him and hogan. 1 where hogan is standing further back from douglas and still looks 2 inches. The 1 of all photos is douglas and hogan with them holding their arms in the air. A noticeable difference in height and size. Put these pics on. I ask anyone to. Its all well and good to post the pics you really want and look great by making your points and gaining support from other peoples comments. But putting the pics that might controdict isn,t fair now. I agree with henry that douglas was wearing footware advantage.

Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
Remember this. From a distance or difference postures and angles. You can never tell the real difference say between a ft6,6 guy to ft6,7 example. If we are talking 3_4 inches then of course very noticeable indeed. Lets just look at thst.
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
What i would most like to know is this and put wrestling aside for the moment anyway....if terry hulk hogan was measured by his mum back in the 1970,s let,s just say before he even joined WWF wrestling. Then why would his own mum of all people lie about his own height then. ???. Answer that.!!! Yes she could of made a mistake, but lie. His own mum. No. Let,s just say he wasn,t involved in wrestling back then. Wrestlers didn,t understand the meaning of lying about their own heights back then LOL. But now it,s such a massive thing with WWF wrestlers. We are talkong now_20 years ago in which a WWF wrestler could of lied due to showmanship. If terry wasn,t involved in wrestling say 1975. Hype was never a massive deal back then. But of 2000 era it is noticeable. So that,s what i mean billed height wrestlers. Why would you of felt the need to lie. Times were never a massive ego back say 1975 for example. If you were ft6,7 you really were. Lets look at the other wtestlers footwear. 2_3 inch lifts. Photos you have posted. Physcho sid terry hulk hogan. Pyscho sid ft6,6.5 and seemed 3 inches taller than terry in different pics, different times, photo positions etc. I most be absolutely looney bin yes.!!!???. No. I,m not nuts at all. I am talking alot of sense indeed LOL. If henry and ronster read this message then please say you guys understand well. I can,t win. Brick wall....but if you guys feel my point or anyone else out there. It is so easy to talk and say. But like i said, i am with you guys and you have obviously found out some way some how terry wasn,t ft6,5. No.i do agree with ronster and henry on this. Henry and ronster. I agree with you 2 guys and i really look forward to your replys. 👍👍👍

@Daniel Reynolds
Mr T always looked that 5'10 range with guys like Piper and Hogan . 5'10-5'10.5 is very believible . The funny thing is that he was billed as a small man , when in the reality he was above average for the 1980's standards.
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
Forget ft6,4.5 nonsense. Lennex, lennox lweis was measured ft6,5. I reckon terry when he was at hos very best would of edged lennox. Not by much. But terry would of be slightly taller and i do say slightly taller than lennox terry 1977 lets say. Agreed dan trojan, sotiris gravas, canson. I would give the edge to terry in height. But in terms of size terry would of mountained lennox in terms of build. But terry would of edged lennox in height when terry was at his ultimate best say 1977_1980. Yes no.???

John matuszak was listed ft6,8. Looking at him with mr t. He looked no taller than terry standing with mr t. Maybe an inch taller. Maybe.
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
If terry was ft6,5.5 like you guys point out then he would of been the biggest ft6,5.5 mountain on a man i have ever seen. I said he had lost 1 inch between 1979 and 1989. You have got to remember this. Terry like so many other WWF wrestlers have been bounce on their heads once to often over the years. You tell me why then he has had so many ops. 2 discs removed. I mentioned terry can hardly stand up straight today. Do you really want to tell me he has lost only 2 inches since 1977.????...no.!!! Look at mark also. Billed heights, but remember the bounces on the heads and backs curbed spines. You will look at terrys footware. Lets look at the other wrestlers footware also. Are they the same. I mentioned tommy tiny lister. Now there is a guy that could well of worn 3 inch lifts in his boots and he will say terry was about ft6,5. i REPEAT, about ft6,5. He couldn,t talk himself. Being ft6,5 trying to look ft6,8 with lifts. Very well done indeed.
62B said on 14/Apr/19
I do think Hogan looks an easy 2" or maybe a fraction more than a peak Buster Douglas, who today still looks around 6'3" with Rob. So If Buster was even close to 6'4" at one time, then its possible that Hulk was close to the full 6'6". Still I think most evidence shows Hulk 6'5" or maybe a small fraction over.
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
Ronster and henry. I am with you guys on this. I did say it would not suprise me if terry was ft6,9 aged 25. You guys have obviously found that out some how. I do value everyones opinion. But terry in his 20,s looked more than ft6,5 to me and i do think his height has been under shadowered with age and time and other peoples opinions. I can never controdict anyone on saying their height at their very best. You may as well say i am ft5,7 insread of ft5,10 which is what i really am bare foot. But if either you ronster or henry can somehow find proof of terrys mid 20,s true height either by measurement or a photo of him being measured bare foot back then. Then that will put all these guys to rest. I am alot more on the sides of henry and ronster here. These guys would of followed WWF wrestling from back then them selves. If there is anyone that can prove terrys true height in his 20,s bare foot please and i ask please can you post a photo here. I am trying guys.👍👍👍
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
I have looked at some pics of rocky 3 which is just like saying abc to you guys and you will find them like saying abc. Stallone says ft5,10 prime height aged 36. He may well of lost height now. But lets just suppose he was ft5,10. Let,s just suppose. Mr t was noticeably taller in posing pics with stallone rocky 3. 1 where they are both posing looking at the camera and mr t is just standing behind stallone. There looks a good 2 inches in mr t,s favour. There is another pic of the rocky 3 crew apart from terry. Why terry wasn,t in that pic i don,t know. Perhaps he was told he was too tall to fit in.😆😆. Mr t is in between the heights of stallone and carl weathers ft6,2. Now who looks at carl weathers height and ever talks about it. so my point is this....if mr t was ft6,0 or ft5,11.5 in 1982 then that perhaps may give a different story on terrys true height back then. I have looked at mr t and terry in many pics as they were very good pals. But something is wrong i know it. Terry looked no less than ft6,6 in 1985 to me and other points i was pointed out. But i will ask either ronster or henry as i am with you guys on this topic. If there is any way you could find proof that terry was a good ft6,7 in his hayday if either 1 of you guys can post it to put the others at rest. Please. I am trying. But if stallone was ft5,10 then how would mr t of be ft5,10 like so many say. No. Mr t was ft5,11 and even if stallone was ft5,9 which i doubt then mr t looked every bit 2-2.5 inches taller. So lets just say ft5,11.5. Hopefully someone will come along at some point and catch you disbelievers out right. I am will henry and ronster on this. But i do value your opinions but to an extent.
Daniel reynolds said on 14/Apr/19
62B. I value all you said. I am out for the truth in heights also. If you feel i was writing these messages just to piss arse everyone around then you are very much mistaken indeed. I know wrestlers have billed heights and true heights. This message does go out to dan trojan, solitas gravas, canson. This sight i now know is estimated by many peoples opinions and then roundwd up by the editor himself. Thats his choice and thats fine. But being an editor you can still get your estimations slightly wrong. The only people that know their own heights are the people themselves. I know what your going to say now. Wrestlers lie about their true heights. I will say some do and some don,t. I would never contodict anyone on their own height and dan trojan i don,t just want to believe wrestlers that are billed with heights are always telling the truth no. I have followed wrestling long enough now, im in my 40,s. But the 1 thing that puzzles me is mr t,s true prime height.!!!

@Stunner74 Let's see... All I can say to forking over around $300 for a fan photo w/ The Deadman (i.e., Undertaker) is...

Over my dead body! Click Here

I used to go to comic-book conventions when I was younger, where celebrities/wrestlers go and charge money for photos, but not nowadays. Around 10 years ago, a furious friend of mine was busy telling off Lou Ferrigno, irate over the fact that he'd have to pay just for a snapshot, I think $40(?), not even a signed photo/poster, for his kid. He basically told him to take all of the merch he was going to buy and stick it where the sun don't shine... at almost the exact moment I walked up to Ferrigno's booth, lol. Pretty sure he would have a heart attack at current prices. (Maybe Lou didn't hear everything my pal said due to his hearing impairment, otherwise there might have been a "HULK SMASH!" moment. Me being there might have helped him a little.)

Editor Rob is definitely more generous than I am.

@Canson. Yeah, Rock at 6'5" is crazy. He looked a good 2" shorter than Vince Vaughn in get shorty, who Rob has pegged at 6'5". Personally though I thought Jeff Goldblum's who Rob has listed at 6'4 1/4" looked every bit as tall as Vaughn in Jurassic world, so Vaughn might not even have been 6'5". Rock is also noticeably shorter than 6'4"ish David Hasselhoff and 6'3.5"ish Conan O'Brien. Rock is about my age and height and in phenomenal shape. I can't see him having lost as much or more height than I have, seeing I am out of shape and have degenerative disk disease and ankylosing spondylitis. Peak Rock was likely 6'3" at most, but probably really somewhere between 6'2" and 6'3". He probably hasn't lost very much. Another thing to consider is Rock seems to like wearing shoes or boots with big soles.
Canson said on 12/Apr/19
@Dan Trojan: lol it’s hilarious when people claim a person is taller than they actually are or claim. It’s 99% of the time the other way around. They aren’t as tall (barefoot) as they claim (shoes or fibbed). So Tiny claiming and being a proper 6’5 makes him 6’6.5 just to make someone insecure with their height or egotistical whichever we want to call it, the height that they claim. Like I’ve said before, there are some things here that just can’t be taken seriously. But now you can see what I’ve been saying all along with Sotiris. A lot of people here jump down his back for his estimates when he is at least providing some reasoning and pictures (although not very good ones at times). He isn’t nearly as bad as others here who upgrade everyone for no reason. And He isn’t simply going and saying people are taller than they claim which is ludicrous in a sport like Wrestling where they have to maintain the larger than life image. Although downgrading or upgrading beyond reasonable belief or outside of reasoning isn’t good either way, at least it’s a known fact that people would more than likely upgrade rather than downgrade their own height
Henry said on 12/Apr/19
Hulk Hogan was at least 6'9" barefoot right out of bed before he started losing height by doing thousands of legdrops and having dozens of height reducing hip, knee, back, neck surgeries etc. Hogans minimum 6'9" height is indisputable from the Belzer and Buster Douglas Photos. Blitzer and Douglas both have significant footwear advantages over Hogan.
All the haters on this site are very very short themselves and make themselves feel better by trying to get Rob to reduce the height of all celebrities on here.
They would be better off trying to improve society by organizing to fight height discrimination against short men instead of spending all their time and effort in trying to get Rob to reduce the already lower than consensus listings for many celebrities.

Daniel reynolds tony lister was not over 6'5" he said himself he was 6'5" do you really think he would underlist himself he also said hogan was the same height as him

Hulk hogan had lost slight height since 1979 to 1989 against tiny lister no holds barred. 1 inch.
______________________

1" height loss between the ages of 26 and 36 would be a very significant amount and highly abnormal and unlikely. Most people would not loose any height by their mid 30's
Canson said on 11/Apr/19
@62B: well said. You see where that poster also said that the Rock was 6’5” at his peak. Back in the early 2000s Eddie George was as tall as if not taller than the Rock and George measured 6’2.5 so not even sure if that was his low. The “Terry/Hulk’s mom said this or that or told him this or that” means diddly squat honestly

@Dan Trojan, Sotiris, and RP: you have some people who believe what they want. It’s just funny that because Hulk says his mother measured him 6’7” that’s what he is. Of course we know people lie about their height and it’s usually. Then of course you have a guy like Charles Barkley and Howard Stern who claim their actual heights yet people say that they’re taller than they are all the time.
Stunner74 said on 11/Apr/19
Sotiris, your 6’7 right? How bout you track some of these guys down and see for yourself. That’d give us a good comparison 👍

Hulk hogan had lost slight height since 1979 to 1989 against tiny lister no holds barred. 1 inch. Tiny lister was believed to of been taller than ft6,5 and then you have got to look at the monster lifts he was wearing himself. You talk about hogans boots. It wouldn,t suprise me if tiny lister had 3 inch moster lifts.

@Daniel reynolds. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, as we all have our own. Most of us here on this sight are really out for the truth about celebrities actual heights, and we use late afternoon/early evening as the standard. There really is no evidence that I have seen that supports Hogan ever being anything over Robs listed peak height. Most regular posters on Hogan believe he was closer to 6'5" than 6'6", while some have a decent argument suggesting he was no more than 6'4.5" barefoot. Arguments are based off of personal sightings, video and pictures that usually have other people or objects of a known height for comparison. So you can argue/debate all you want, but no one here is going to take "well Terry's said his Mom once measured him at 6'7" as any kind of proof, when so much more evidence suggests he wasn't. So find some kind of plausible proof for a decent argument and people might take it into consideration for how tall they think Hogan was at his peak.

@Daniel reynolds You said your "Terry" was wearing shoes on Carson, not boots... No, he was wearing cowboy boots w/ a big heel... Click Here

Your posts are basically the same rant over and over again and it's getting real old, real fast. Almost as old as your "Terry."

P.S. Carson was max 5'10.5" peak height, not 5'11".
Daniel reynolds said on 9/Apr/19
I don,t understand how this sight gives celebs real height. But it does sound odd with certain celebs. I don,t understand how this sight can be so sure unless it was reveiled by all known celebs. Every sight has different measurements when you look which is my point. I don,t know if you guys are stats guys for real or just fans that put in votes. But my point is how can anyone really be controdicted on their true height in their prime if they give it you and they have been measured at a certain height. It,s like me. I,m ft5,10 for real, but i guess you may as well just say i,m ft5,8 for a fact not ft5,10. When it comes to 1.5 inches. It is rather hard to compare to perfection especially when we are looking at times a distance, not being too close. Or different postures and angles. If we are talking 3_4 inches i do agree. But it,s looking at terry in his prime that stuns me as apposed to 2000. A noticeable difference in height and still wearing lifts anyway. I just can,t see how this sight can be so accurate over someones stating of their prime height. Is it on the harsh side with certain people not always trufthful, i don,t know. Forget what other people will say that have met celebs. But if they haven,t measured that person in their prime then it is really easy to be 1.5 inches off target especially when you are looking at a big guy in his prime.

I'm not sure where CelebHeights I state heights as being 'facts' or 'truths'...it would be a bit silly to claim the heights were facts!

CelebHeights is an entertainment and trivia website estimating the heights of famous people. It's on every page in the footer (in bold): "Heights are barefeet estimates". 😉

Except my own height, that's certainly a fact 🤩
Canson said on 9/Apr/19
@Johan 185: I agree with you and that’s the most I could conceivably see for Hulk was 6’5.5. I would’ve said something along those lines myself (6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 at a low) and Taker 6’8/6’8.25 out of bed 6’7.25 at a low). It was a difference of 1.5-2” between them I agree. I could buy Rob’s listing for Taker but not any higher whereas 6’6” seems high for Hulk as is and 6’7” just outlandishly high. He would make that in boots in the afternoon perhaps but the boots would be around 1.5”+
Canson said on 9/Apr/19
@Dan Trojan: well said! And the sources on this site who claim the same aren’t very credible themselves.
Daniel reynolds said on 9/Apr/19
I guess we can agree to disagree on this topic. I do believe some wrestlers have fake heights but not all. I am going by everybidys stats on the web. Not just terry. Daley thompson, marilyn monroe, nat king cole, sugar ray robinson. All sorts of people. I am not going by this sight because i just don,t feel this sight in particular does give an accurate height of everybody. It,s rather shy should i say. Some yes. But i really do think the only way we would of known terrys true height would of been by measuring him ourselves bare foot when he was in his late 20,s. I am rather puzzled by daley thompsons height also. I was a great fan of daley and some sights have listed daley at ft6,0 and some i have come across ft6,2. I reckon this sight would of given daley ft6,0 in his prime.
RP said on 9/Apr/19
Daniel, Terry had on 1.75” black dress boots when on the 1982 Johnny Carson Show. Carson was close to 5’11” at his youthful peak. However, by 1982 his was only in the low 5’10’s” at best. 5’10” to 5’10-1/4”....his peak height was 5’10-3/4”...IMO Bro, accept it! Terry was only 6’5” & Change barefoot at his peak (20’s up to his mid 30’s)

I swear this daniel reynolds guy seems to believe in wwe billed heights lol the heights in wrestling are just as fake as wrestling itself
Daniel reynolds said on 9/Apr/19
Dwayne johnson is noticeably shorter than he was around 2000. I can notice that and it has also been mentioned that he is shrinking. If ever you did watch him against stone cold steve austin in years like 2000, 20001, 2002 on RAW and smackdown back then he was considerably taller and steve austin was ft6,2. You tell me how it is alot of wrestlers do lose height as they get older obviously with age also. Some like terry had untold ops on their backs, necks and all sorts. Terry has a curbed spine through wrestelling and age. He had 2 discs removed from his spine. Are you really going to tell me he lost only 2 inches in height due to his injures over all these years with ops on his neck and back also. He can,t even stand up straight nowadays. Look at him in late 1970,s nothing alike. I just think you are off with heights in general and how can you be so sure with everyones exact height. Have you met these people in their primes. I take it marilyn monroe lied about her height of ft5,5 also then. Going back to what ronster said like me also. Terrys mum MEASURED him bare foot from toe to head and came up with ft6,7 in his 20,s is she lying. Can you prove that. It makes me feel good when people say hogan was ft6,3 but lied about his height of ft6,4 in the 2000,s. Which proves those people wrong also. Look at terry with big bill anderson ft6,4 and james buster douglas ft6,4 also These guys were ft6,4. Take a look at terrys noticeable height difference.
Canson said on 8/Apr/19
First of all The Rock was never 6’5”. He was max 6’3” likely less at his peak. That’s why you believe hulk was 6’7” because you believe what these guys claim. Rock is also much younger than Hogan so he wouldn’t have lost 3” in height yet. He’s 6’2” today. A 6’4-6’5 Charles Barkley dispels the Rock’s 6’5” myth. We aren’t talking height in lifts/boots or even regular shoes. Barefoot heights are what we are discussing here
Daniel reynolds said on 8/Apr/19
The pic i saw of terry shaking hands with johny carson wasn,t great though. If you watch the video click of terry on the johny carson show 1982. The click lasts about 10 minutes. When you see terry standing up straight he actually towers johny carson who actually was ft5,11 and terry was wearing shoes not boots in that video click. Carson looked to of come up to terrys chin. Which points out what i was saying about stallone face off with terry in rocky 3 and what i ask about the height from chin to top of head.
Canson said on 8/Apr/19
you just said Stallone? The same Sylvester Stallone who lies about his own height and wears lifts. There goes his credibility. But What about Tiny Lister and Jesse Ventura saying Hulk is 6’5”? If anything their word is more credible being they were in the same sport, were friends with him, and spent considerably much more time around him. Stallone would say the Rock is 6’5” as well if Rock told him that. Again just because Hulk “alleges” to have measured 6’7” does not mean that in fact he did nor does it mean he did so barefoot. The funniest part is that most people lie up about their height and wrestling inflates all of their stars
Johan 185 cm said on 8/Apr/19
@ Daniel reynolds

Yes Mark was 2 inches taller than Terry, in Suburban Commando as well ( Mark was a bounty hunter) it was the same kind of difference as in street clothes. You can't really go with ring gear as the boot thickness could vary greatly.

I have Hulk at 6'5.5" peak and Mark at 6'7.5" peak.

Today Terry seems to have regained some height as he appears 6'3" while a few years ago he looked more 6'2" range because of his knees and poor posture.

Mark still looked 6'6" range next to a poster here who reliably looked the 6'6" that he claimed. Ali Baba was also correct about Tyler Mane so i am inclined to believe him as they are almost the same height.

Looked close to 3” taller than Brutus Beefcake during an interview with the two over the weekend @ WrestleMania WWE Hall of Fame ceremonies.
Daniel reynolds said on 8/Apr/19
If you were ever wondering why terry look so big in that ring in rocky 3. Well just look at his sheer size anyway back then akong with the boots he was wearing and that ring wasn,t small. A descent sized ring which looked small because of a mountain of a guy standing in it. When we look up famous people heights, when it gives you there height it is going by the heights when that person was at the very best in time. Either at that point in time when they are at their best or when they are well over the hill and in retirement. Terry is ft6,2 today, but when ever you do look up his stats it gives you ft6,7/2.01m. That,s going by when his was at his ultimate best. Marilyn monroe was only ft5,5/1.65m i thought she was taller ft5,7. I always believed frank sinatra was a good ft6,0. But i was shocked to of found out he was only ft5,7.5/ft5,8 in his younger years. My point is, some people are taller than we think and some are shorter. I mentioned dwayne johnson. Dwayne in 2000/2001 those years was indeed ft6,5. Nowadays he is ft6,3/ ft6,3.5. It,s sad. I am a big fan if dwayne. But there,s another wrestler that has lost height along with terry, kane, mark calloway .

Ft6,7.2/5 morning hogan 1980 out of bed and ft6,7 hogan evening 1980 sounds bang on target to me.
Daniel reynolds said on 7/Apr/19
Hear is a very interesting point on this topic. Something i did manage to find out for myself and you don,t have to believe this. in rocky 3 the film itself the ring announcer said standing nearly ft7,0 an incredible sight. You mentioned nearly ft7,0 being ft6,11 which wasn,t announced. But it could of meant ft6,9/ ft6,10. Well terry prowling around in his corner actually stood ft6,8.5 wearing the 1.25 inches boots you pointed out. So being ft6,8.5 in that ring take away the boots he was wearing gives you his exact height which is what i knew ft6,7. Stallone was no less than ft5,10 bare foot. stallone was ft5,11 in that ring wearing his boots. that is something i know for sure. Now if you take terrys boots off you have to take stallone boots off also. There wasn,t a foot difference in height. I could see that. If you look up terry shaking hands with big bill anderson who was ft6,4 in a photo in the 1980,s there looked to be a good 3/4 inch difference in height in that pic in terrys favour. Look at his best pics not his worst and see for yourself. It,s all well and good to look at the pics you want to look at but in terrys case if there are not so good pics then there are very good ones also. I do agree with you though and i will admit that terry in the mid 90,s 2000 + years terry was no more than ft6,5 bare foot. That was very noticeable yes. But dwayne johnson has lost height also. If you look at dwayne in 2001 for example he was ft6,5 then and is about ft6,3/ft6,3.5 nowadays. But mark calloway was taller in the early 90,s ft6,9 now ft6,6.5/ft6,7 or there abouts. But if you took mark early 90,s and compare terrys height early 80,s mark would of been 1.5/2 inches taller than terry. I think you would agree with that.

I myself don,t think mark would of been any more than 2 inches taller than terry at the very best. You can correct me if i am wrong. I say for sure terry 6,7 mark 6,9.???
---------------------------------------
I saw Undertaker at the YMCA in the mid 90's. I didn't get a chance to stand right next to him, but I did stand fairly close to Crush who I saw interact with taker. Crush seemed in the 6'5" range and I don't think taker was more than 2" taller. I did not get them impression that Undertaker was as tall as a 6'9" co worker at the time either.

@Stunner74: Magic is 6’7”. My coworker is precisely half inch shorter than me and guessed him no more than about 3-3.5” taller than him. Taker is 6’6 max today and 6’7” peak
Canson said on 7/Apr/19
So I guess if Terry says he’s 6’7 then he is. That means that the Rock must also be 6’5. Uhh common sense the Rock was no higher than 6’2.5-6’3 peak and Hogan 6’5-6’6. Wrestlers lie about their heights all the time. If Hulk were 6’7 then he would be listed at that here not 6’6”

Sotiris, I know someone 5’11 1/2 who has stood next to a lot of these guys and believe me Hogan is still around 6’3 1/2. He has photos next to Taker who he believes is still around 6’7 Magic Johnson 6’8 and even Barry Hall who is an x AFL footballer who is around 6’4. He has photos with them all. He is a promoter, so unless you haven’t stood next to them, your measurements are a bit out. He also said Show is still around 6’11. I’ll see if I can get permission to post photos ✌️

I believe mark edged terry both at their very brst in heights. I don,t know if you would agree. Was mark taller than terry both at their very best. Yes or no. I don,t think mark would of been alot taller and if he was then mark couldn,t of been much taller than terry both at their very best. I am interedted to hear this response. Mark or terry prime.????
Daniel reynolds said on 6/Apr/19
Terry had lost height in wrestlemania 1991 againsr mark. When i say mark obviously i mean mark calloway the undertaker. Mark was no less than ft6,9. Forget ft6,7. I am talking ultimate prime. Mark was billed as ft6,10. Now if his was ft6,10 true height, in 1991 which he may well of been for all we know. Then that surley proves another point. Does mark look ft6,7 1991. No, he looks more.!!! Just take a very good look at mark in the ring. Mark may well of lost height over the years as terry certainly did for sure. They looked almost the same height. I would give mark 2.5 inches taller than terry then. But as i have mentioned terry did lose height then. If you were looking at terry and mark at there very best you would of been looking at a 1.5_2 inch height advantage to mark. I won,t dismiss mark was taller for sure.
62B said on 6/Apr/19
@Daniel Reynolds. All I can tell you for certain is that in 1980 Hogan was not 3" taller than my 6'4" Grandfather when he stopped right in front of us. There was really very little difference between them. Hogan had about an inch on my Grandfather and that is it.
Daniel reynolds said on 6/Apr/19
Look at big van vador ft6,5 v terry hulk hogan on youtube late 1980,s around 1989 face to face and you will see the difference in height there. A good 2 inches in terrys favour. Terrys was shorter then than in 1979.!!! Take a look.
Daniel reynolds said on 6/Apr/19
I urge you to look at terrys younger days late 20,s in the late 1970,s not the mid 90,s plus and look at his very best pics not his worst and post them instead of his worst pics. For example terry when he was holding his arms aloft in the air with james buster douglas who was ft6,4 and look at the difference in size. James buster douglas was a big man ft6,4 and he made michael tyson look very small indeed. Michael was ft5,11.5 and he was built like an ox. Even michael wasn,t small. You can continue posting terrys worst pics and try to convince me. Forget it. Look at the pic with terry shaking hands with big bill anderson ft6,4. Look at terry with donald trump ft6,3.5 a big man in his younger days and how he towered christopher loyd actually ft6,1 yes in deed. The fact that he lost height to andre by 5 inches makes me feel happy, because andre was no less than ft7,0. Even vince macmahan said andre was at least ft7,0 no less and as for vince macmahon, he was a good ft6,2 when he was speaking with andre the giant and terry hulk hogan with terrys trainer outside the ring on wrestlemania 1980. I go back to you saying dolph lundren was ft6,3. No he was ft6,5 and noticeably shorter than terry when you look at their face off pics. So you did get your heights wrong there. Look at big van vador ft6,5 facing terry in the centre of the ring around 1989 on youtube. There is a noticeable 2 inches in terrys favour and we are not even looking at terry 1979 1 inch shorter. Do yourself a favour and ask terry how tall he was and he will tell you himself ft6,7. I am not interester in bad pics. As for mark calloway he was infact ft6,9 at his very best, not ft6,7 as you pointed out!!
Daniel reynolds said on 6/Apr/19
Jusr because someone says they are ft6,7 and they have been measured bare foot ft6,7. Doesn,t mean they are ft6,5 and it can,t possibly mean they are ft6,5 either. Try and make sense and try to get your head around this. Slyvester stallone even mentioned terry was a good ft6,7 himself. Now there is a man that did work along side terry. I am never going to change your mind and you are never going to change my mind either. Do you possibly think i would respond to this like this if i knew i was completely wrong.??? No. Forget other guesses. I did my research a long time ago now. Terry was no less than ft6,7. I am not just saying this because i was a big fan, but because i could see the difference with other well known people along side him also. Try and pick out terrys best pics and you will see my point. I promise you.!!!

Did terry ever tell you he was in fact ft6,5.?? Because if he didn,t then i don,t know why you would assumed he was ft6,5. I have never believed that for a start. I have always believed and knew he was more. Since 1984.!!

Sugar ray robinson ft5,11 / 1.80m. John wayne was ft6,4 / 1.93m. Everyone has stats. True stats when you type in their height it gives it to you simply because their heights are on record.

Of course you have got to be so right. Let?s work this out. If you have been measured bare foot. I repeat for the 10th time MEASURED from toe to top of head at ft6,7 then of course you have got to be ft6,5.now why dodn,t i think of that when i was a kid. I always believed terry was ft6,8 for all these years. MEASURED bare foot 6,7+ equals ft6,5 yes. I just wish i had got my head around this a long time ago. That box i saw it in terrys corner in rocky 3 itself when he was prowling around the ring in the film. Did you see it in the film itself. I did. All these years. No there is no proof his was ft6,5. Hogan was ft6,7 and stallone was ft5,10. As for the pic with terry looking down on stallone in the ring, that was his correct height. Don,t fool yourself. There was a big difference in now. If there wasn,t then hogan would of been ft6,2-ft6,3. Which doesn,t make any sense. Put 2 and 2 together. I wonder how many people on this planet would agree with you or me.!!!???

@Ronster: I meant to say in my opinion. My bad
Canson said on 5/Apr/19
@RP: I always saw 1.5-2” between he and Taker. If Hogan were really 6’7” then Taker would be 6’9 almost. A peak Taker was no taller than Rob lists him and perhaps .5” less or 1/4” if talking a low. But 6’7-6’7.5 possible and 6’5.5 for Hulk possible at best imho. Remember We also saw Michael Strahan day on TV a couple weeks ago when Kobe walked on the set that he was measured 6’4.75 barefoot when we know he’s not. Strahan messured 6’4.25 at the combine which is earlier in the day and kobe’s Wife measured him 6’4.75. Kobe can look the full 6’5” but that doesn’t look any different from 6’4.75 especially if a guy is wearing a shoe that adds 1.25” or has an orthotic. Someone throwing out a “precise” number like that means nothing. Hogan likely was 6’7” with shoes or near that mark or mismeasured. Now since Rob lists him 6’6” I’ll leave the door slightly open and say that he could’ve been a near 200 out of bed if we really want to believe that. I can see him having lost 2+ in his life but not 4”. He’s only 6’3” today. I’ll leave a wider door open for 6’5.5 at a low or 197 range since he did look that often

You have picked the worst possible pics. Very well done. All the pics you have chose to pic out yourself. Terrible angles. Your probably not a hulk fan if you are picking out the worst pics. As for the pic with terry standing on the platform the platform looked about 4 inches high which still doesn,t add up his true height. It was a very bad pic and stallone did come up to terrys chest in that photo. Stallone was closer to the camera and the angle was like you were a spectator in the front row. That platform was used for a photo shoot only. There is a pic of stallone coming up to hogans chest when he was standing on the platform and stallone looking straight up. You can find this pic with the photo shoot showing the left side of them instead of the right. Obviously when you saw hogan in the actual film itself they didn,t use the platform. We didn,t see hogan walk from his corner and just stand on the box in rocky 3 itself. It was purely a photo shoot. Stallones height was ft5,10 and they were both wearing big heels. Why not pic out terrys best pics like the pics i have mentioned with christopher loyd and donald trump who was a big man and vince macmahan in the andre years We can all fool ourselves and others if we want to.!!!

I am glad someone does agree with me on this. This debate started when i said dolph luhdren was ft6,5 in 1985 and hulk hogan was ft6,7. I was replyed dolph lundren was ft6,3 in rocky 4 and both lundren and hogan were standing on boxes in face offs in both rocky 3 and rocky 4. I am so glad you replyed saying lundren was ft6,3 back then. Because he was ft6,5 and i always knew that. Which proves my point about the face offs. Hogan was taller than lundren if you look at the face off pics. If they are both standing on a platform the same height or even the same platform then i am completely right. You clearly got your heights wrong with both lundren and hogan. If lundren was ft6,3 then i would agree terry would of been no more that ft6,5.5. I hope this is a very good point taken because you still haven,t proved to me terry was ft6,5.5 1980. Because as i have mention alot he was measured bare foot ft6,7. So with lundren being ft6,5 there we have it.
Daniel reynolds said on 5/Apr/19
In rocky 3 when your saw that gootage of terry hulk hogan and stallone. The top yellow ring ropes came up the terrys waist when you saw him prowling around in his corner and those girls in his corner weren,t short by any means.
Daniel reynolds said on 5/Apr/19
I have never heard hogan mention his was ft6,5 and i have watched WWF wrestling since 1984. I always know he was around ft6,8. But i will never change my mind now. Not after 35 years 1984. If you did read his comment at the top of this page his mentioned his was ft6,7 bare foot. Lou ferrigno wasft6,5 himself in 1982 and terry was taller by a couple of inches. So how do you prove he was ft6,5 if he never mentioned it and was measured ft6,7 from toe to head. Where does ft6,8 get mentioned on his height. Of course billed height. But some wrestlers have billed heights of true and actual heights. Some are incorrect some are not. Terrys prime height was pretty much on the money
Kevin hash billed height was ft6,10 and kevin nash in his prime was in fact ft6,10. So billed heights can be there true heights also.

I have looked at the links you described. But it stll doesn,t prove i am wrong. You can,t prove higan was ft6,5 1980 because he never said he was. Other people may of said he was, but that still doesn,t prove anything. With them guessing and his mum measuring him from toe bare feet to top of head is surely accurate. The pic with him standing on the box makes stallone come up to terrys chest and looking straight up at him the other pic is as accurate on ground as you can get. Where stallone comes up to hogans neck. The same height ad when they were walking to the centre of the ring. Stallone came up to hogans neck. The pic you are showing is a pic where stallone does come up to hogans chest when hogan was standing on the box. Not the other pic. That was filming. If you look at hogans height in that footage are you really going to tell me he isn,t slightly more than ft6,5.5.???
Canson said on 4/Apr/19
What Sotiris said is correct. Just because someone says they’re 6’7” doesn’t mean it. Magic also says he’s 6’9” but he’s 6’7” range barefoot which his own coach Pat Riley even said
RP said on 4/Apr/19
Sotiris! Ahhh yes! There’s the pic. 5” box, plus, Thunderlips has at least a 1” footwear advantage over Rocky. Bringing the total boosted height to approximately 6” in the staredown.
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
Hogan wasn,t standing on a box in that pic i,m sorry. Throughout that fight seen terry towered over stallone by the same height. I have looked at that pic for donkeys years and watched the footage many times over and i know full well. As for big heels, stallone was wearing the same footwear as terry. They weren,t big heels. When you look at hogan with christopher loyd walking along the footpath i take it terry most of been walking on a box then. Look at the height difference. When you see him tower above muhammad ali and donald trump i take it he must of been standing on a 6 inch box in those pics also. Look at the height differences. As for this box that was suppossedly 5_6 inches high that would of make terry ft7ft plus in that pic which he wasn,t. He looked ft6,7 so if you take away this box that makes him ft6,2 at very best.??? That can,t be right. No way.!!! I don,t buy it i,m sorry. Ft6,7. No more no less. You can,t change my mind. I have known for years since i was about 9 terry was about ft6,8. But i know full well ft6,7.
RP said on 4/Apr/19
@ Canson, correct!
Peak Hogan was somewhere between 6’5.25” to 6’5.5”...with 6’5.75” being possible. Although I think 6’5.75” would be a morning measurement for Hogan. And 6’5.25” evening...IMO.
Dan Trojan said on 4/Apr/19
Nice pic there sotiris i always knew there was something off about that staredown between hogan and stallone because hogan being 6'5" and stallone being 5'9" there's no way there would be that much height difference between them plus now that i look at it you can kinda tell he was standing on a box
Canson said on 4/Apr/19
@Ronster: Taker was never 6’8” and Hogan was never 6’7”. The absolute most would be what Rob lists them but most will argue that Hogan at his peak was 6’5” range as he actually once admitted to being and what Tiny Lister also said he was along with Jesse Ventura.
RP said on 4/Apr/19
Gravas! Great find of Carson & Arness! Carson appears to come up to bottom of both men’s noses. Give or take 1/4”...but, I’m sure 57 year old Johnny was slightly shorter than 30 year old Johnny. I’d guess at least a 1/2” ?? So, it would be realistic to sssume that peak James Arness was 3/4” taller than peak Hulk Hogan? Assuming their cowboy boots are close to equal ?? Johnny’s footwear was likely your standard 1” dress shoes in both photos.
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
I just never came acroos there box that would of been about 6 inches high. Hogan looked no more than ft6,8 /ft6,7.5 in rocky 3. But you could see his true height when he was in the ring. The point i am trying to get at is, hogan was looking down on stallone in rocky 3 when you say that stallone came up the terrys lips. But terry wasn,t even standing straight up thats why stallone came up to hogans lips
Because he was looking down on stallone. If hogan was looking straight ahead when you stand straight up stallone would of come up to terrys neck not lips. So stallone being ft5,10 my height. I have got mates ft6,5 and i come up to there lips if they stand straight up. If magic johnson was ft6,9 then he may of been if he said so. But if you have been measured and your ft6,7 then you can,t been ft6,5 unless you bend slightly. You can,t say your ft6,5 if you have been measured and your ft6,7. Thats the proof in the pudding. Saying is 1 thing but by measured as proof is another. Can you see my point.!!!
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
I have watched rocky 3 many many times and looking at hogan walking around the ring i didn,t see any box at all. He was walking around the ring at the same height. He was around 9 inches taller than stallone not 12 and nearly ft7,0 could mean ft6,9. It doesn,t have to mean ft6,11 and ft6,11 wasn,t announced But you could see the height comparison. There looked no more than 9_10 inches difference. Hogan didn,t look ft6,11 no way. I look at other pics. I go back to andre the giant ft7,0.5 true height. He was 5 inches taller than terry, no more. When you look at hogan in a ring in his prime i can definately see he is more than ft6,5. Not by much but he is. He towerred muhammad ali by a good 4 inches and was alot taller than christophen loyd at6,0.5. I look at lennox lewis ft6,5 hulk was taller for sure at his best. Just look at his prime pics to see it for yourself. Donald trump ft6,3.5 in his prime and looking at terry standing next to him and andre the giant terry towered donald trump.
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
For the record mark calloway was in fact ft6,9 in his prime terry in 1991 was ft6,6 in 1991 when he lost to the undertaker in 1991. But hogan had lost slight height since 1979 1 inch. If anyone knows how many inches a skull is. Let,s take hulk hogans skull from neck to top of head. Lets said at least 9 inches. I have done my very best to back up my claim on hogan and i know i have. I have followed him in WWF since 1980,s and i have seen a huge transformation. If your in doubt why don,t you ask terry hulk hogan how tall he was in his hay day and i will garantee you he will tell you himself and say ft6,7 no more no less.!!
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
Stallone in his prime was ft5,10 just like myself. I would of come up to terry hulk hogan neck if he was standing straight up instead of looking down on me. So he would of gained those few inches back by standing up right. I met a fella a couple of weeks ago and he told me he was ft6,10 bare foot. I came up to the bottom of his neck. So there is no reason for me to believe that terry hulk hogan wasn,t a good ft6,7 in late 1970,s i have no shred of doubt in my mind. I met a fella that was ft6,8 yesterday. I came up to his neck. If anyone remembers big van vador. He was ft6,5. If you look at him against terry on youtube you will see terry is taller and we aren,t even looking at a peak hulk hogan. Terry looked taller than ft6,5 to me in the early 1980,s. He was approximetly 4.5 inches taller than muhammad ali who did stand at ft6,3 1985. So how do you come up with ft6,5 in his prime. It makes no sense at all. Terry at his best would of been slightly taller than lennox lewis ft6,5.
Daniel reynolds said on 4/Apr/19
Hulk hogan did say he was measured in his prime at ft6,7 bare foot not ft6,5 he never said his was ft6,5 at his very best. How is it terrible logic.??? It can only make perfect sense. I,m ft5,10 bare foot, why would anyone contredict me on my own height. Hulk hogan lost around 1 inch in height every 10 years. So now he,s about ft6,2.5. But look at the surgeries he has had over the years. Not to mention all the knocks he has had as a wrestler. If he repeatedly said he was ft6,7 bare foot why would he lie. What to make himself sound superior.!!!

@Sotiris: well said!
RONSTER said on 3/Apr/19
Canson, Taker was over 6’8” when he first came to the WWF not 6’7”. And he had the older and already almost an inch shorter Hogan at the time by less than 2” as any photo of them shows. When Hogan came back in 2002 Taker was under 6’7” after 15 years taking bumps and still had less than 2” on Hogan who was still over 6’5” easily. All this 6’5” garbage is silly. There is a page that has been shared here before with unaltered photos of Hogan with celebs of known height and he always was 6’7” in the 80’s. All the usual posters on multiple pages here so is use altered pictures or the ones with his poor posture, tilted angles favoring the people around him and when you show them proof otherwise all the sudden the people around Hogan are instantly inches shorter as well lol. It’s so transparent, Hogan has spun yarns when talking as Hulk Hogan and that’s when he will say André was 700lbs, or that he was 6’9”, but as himself Terry has consistently said the exact same that his Mom measured him like she measured everyone who came into her house barefoot against a wall with a ruler at over 6’7” in his 20’s.

@RP: the Logic is a bit poor. “Just because Hulk says he’s 6’7 he is” is what I gathered. Rob would be very unlikely to underlist someone. If anything it would be the opposite which is likely the case here as he was not 6’6” at a low. Although 6’6 is more believable than 6’7”
Canson said on 2/Apr/19
If you’re 6’5” then you’re not 6’7”. Hulk was never 6’7” barefoot. That is terrible logic when you believe someone’s claim with no proof to back it up. Taker was 6’7” and had Hulk by 1.5-2”

RP said on 2/Apr/19
Note:
With the box, Stallone came up to the bottom of Hogan’s neck...just slightly above his clavicle. Without the box, Stallone came up to Hogan’s lips.
Someone produced that photo of the box on this site a couple of years ago. Dang, I wish we could find it again!!!
RP said on 2/Apr/19
Daniel Reynolds,
There are photos taken by film crew staff during the filming of Rock 3. It shows during the face off, Hogan was standing on a small wooden platform. It looked to be About 4” to 5” tall, maybe as much as 6” tall?...And it’s width was about 12” x 12”. It’s because they were attempting to make Thunderlips look 6’11”.
Remember, he was billed @ “nearly” seven feet tall & 390 lbs!
Hogan was 6’5” & Change...6’5.75” (tops) barefoot & 305 lbs when he filmed Rocky 3. The character Rocky was written as a 5’11” & 202 lbs boxer...Thunderlips character was written to be 6’11” & 390 lbs....they were simply attempting to make Thunderlips look one foot taller than Rocky during the staredown.
Canson said on 1/Apr/19
@Sean R: if 6’5.5 was his low he would be about 6’6.25 out of bed I agree. But I think his mother mismeasured or did it with shoes. I don’t rule out something similar to what you said. I personally say 6’6 out of bed and 6’5.25 at a low
Daniel reynolds said on 1/Apr/19
It,s not terrible lgic at all. If your ft6,7 your not ft6,5.
Space said on 1/Apr/19
@ sean r
Hogan at 6’6” is significantly taller than Randy Orton. I just can’t see 80s Hogan looking down at a real 6’3.75”-6’4” Orton. Especially when Hogan was alittle shorter than Orton in the 2000s.

I’ll give 80s Hogan 6’4 2/3” barefoot at the max just so we can compromise.
Daniel reynolds said on 1/Apr/19
All of a sudden he was always ft6,7 in the late 1970,s 1980,s he did lose height as time progessed in 1990,s. But if he was measured at ft6,7 barefoot then how the hell could he of been ft6,5. Make head or tail of that. It,s almost like saying 4x4 equals 14 not 16. He was measured at ft6,7 and then get listed as being ft6,5. He repeated himself he was ft6,7 in his prime. Never mind want some wrestlers may of said. Different camera angles make people look different heights. Some people may look at a guy for example and say he,s ft6,3 when he could be ft6,4.5. Hogan wouldn,t of lied about his true height. For what. What do you gain out of it. Andre the giant was ft7,0.5 1980. He was 5 inches taller than terry hulk hogan then.
Daniel reynolds said on 1/Apr/19
Hogan never did say he was ft6,5 anyway. I have never heard him mention that before in any interview.
Daniel reynolds said on 1/Apr/19
All of a sudden hulk hogan was always ft6,7 in the late 1970,s-1980,s. He did start losing a bit of height due to heavy knocks and surgeries over the years. But when people say he was ft6,5 then everyone believe it and says it also. Betwwen 1980 and 1990 he had lost about 1 inch. But obviously now he,s anout ft6,2.5. It,s very said because i grow up watching him and andre and all the others. But hogans peak height was when you see him and andre with vince macmahan and hogans trainer having a debate outside the ring in wrestlemania 1980. Vince was ft6,2 back then.
SeanR said on 31/Mar/19
HH at peak was 6’5.5”. With wrestling boots made him 6’7”. Now it’s possible in the AM when he woke up measured 6’6.25” and with what hair he had made him 6’7”, that I can see being possible. Hogan nowadays has difficulty being at 6’3” with all the back knee hip issues. Plus he’s knees are always bent.
Daniel reynolds said on 31/Mar/19
Terry hulk hogan said he was measured at ft6,7.5 at his very best barefoot repeatedly. So with that being the case he was ft6,7.5 i found out that terry was infact ft6,7.5 barefoot. I believe that and nothing else. If your ft6,7 your not going to be measured at ft6,5. I,m ft5,11, i,m not going to say i,m ft5,11 if i am ft5,9. For what. Andre the gians real height was ft7,0.5 no more no less i found that out. Muhammad ali was ft6,3 no less in 1980,s. He may well of been ft6,2 in his later years in life. But terry hulk hogan was a good 4 inches taller than muhammad ali. So people may not be able to tell the difference between a guy ft6,7 and ft6,5 in a ring. Andre the giant was 4.5 inches taller than terry hulk hogan in 1980. So there you have their real and nothing but true heights. I rest my case. People can say what they want to. Terry hulk hogan was measured at ft6,7.5. People can continued saying what they want to. I am looking at terry 1980 not 1995.!!
Daniel reynolds said on 31/Mar/19
If hogan was standing on a box in rocky 3 faceoff which he wasn,t that would of made him about ft6,0 not ft6,7. Lets say this invisable box would make you 7 inches taller than you really are. Honestly.!!!
Daniel reynolds said on 31/Mar/19
Absolute nonsence. Lundren was ft6,5 and hogan was ft6,7. Stallone didn,t come up to hogan lip he came up to hogan neck. Hogan was lioking down on stallone so there for he was losing about 2-3 inches by doing that and i never saw hogan standing on any box in rocky 3. He walked from his corner to the centre of the ring. He didn,t walk from his corner and then just stood on a box. For what. Absolute balls. There is no footage of that. Watch rocky 3 again and you can see the huge difference in height a good 9-10 inches no less. Stallone was ft5,10.

Both Lundgren and Hogan were standing on boxes in Rocky faceoffs. Dolph admitted it and the photo with Hogan on a box was posted here.

Ali was listed 6'2.5 in boxing, later 6'3. His Tussauds waxwork isn't as tall as 6'2..
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
So just because “Hogan said that he was 6’7” means that he was all of a sudden? And because he said he was measured at that means that he “was measured like everyone else”? That’s terrible logic to assume that they guy was 6’7” especially when guys who wrestled with and knew him came out such as Tiny Lister and Jesse Ventura and said he was 6’5”
RP said on 25/Mar/19
Daniel Reynolds,
Peak Clay aka Ali was 6’2-5/8” (74.625”)
Ali in 1985 was down to about 6’2” flat...maybe 6’2-1/4”

Dolph was 6’4”, not 6’5”...possibly even only 6’3-3/4” true & accurate afternoon barefoot measurement. Stallone actually came up to Hogan’s lips when they weren’t using that box or trick camera angles.
Canson said on 24/Mar/19
@Space: Hogan would likely have edged Orton by no less than 3cm at their peak heights. More than likely it was around 4cm. I doubt Orton is a full 6’4 though

The people that are writing these messages saying terry was no more then ft 6,4.5 are talking absolute e. Terry did say himself he was ft6,7 barefoot and was measured like we all are. These people are looking at terry in 2000, not 1980. I am looking at him then. He was 4.5inches taller than muhammad ali who was ft6,3 no less and he was taller than dolph lundren by 2 inches who was ft6,5 no less. Stallone came up to terrys neck in rocky 3 and he wasn,t even standing straight up lokking down on stallone. Stallone came up the dolph lundrens lip i rocky 4 and lundren was standing up straight. Look at it and come compare. Stallone was ft5,10 for the record in the 1980,s. I rest my case.!!!

There are photos online if Hogan and Orion together and they’re eye to eye today.
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Space: to add to that I doubt Orton is even a legit 6’4”. I know Vegas said he saw him in person before and saw another legit 6’4” wrestler in his midst and said that Orton looked slightly shorter. Generally Orton looks weak 6’4” 6’3.5-6’3.75 at times. I also agree Hogan was not 6’6” peak. I’ve only thrown that number out because of Rob listed him that way but he’s a bit overlisted peak I’d say 6’5-6’5.5 not 6’6 but today it’s close to the listing at 6’3”. I wouldn’t argue against his current listing
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
Next to Andre in his peak, I could see why Rob listed him 6’6” but the question is how tall was Andre? I doubt he was ever 7’0” and to be honest could look 6’10” range before he died. Hogan in the strong 6’5 range peak and 6’3 today still fit
62B said on 22/Mar/19
Can't remember if I posted this ever Click Here Most people agree that Rick Rude was in the 6'3" range. Hogan looks to be a solid 6'5" even if Rude was a little under 6'3". To me it doesn't look like Hogan had a boot advantage.
RP said on 22/Mar/19
@ Space...checkout the Wrestlemania Media day photo with Hogan, Orton, Cena, HHH & a few others on stage from 2016 I do believe? Hogan & Orton were the exact Same Height !!! And Hogan was 62 years old. Peak Hogan would’ve been possibly 2” to 1.75” taller than Randy Orton. If footwear was equal? 1987 Hulk Hogan 6’5-1/4” vs 2010 Randy Orton 6’3-1/2”
Jimhopper said on 22/Mar/19
Was shorter than big boss man in wwf years. I hugely doubt he was over 6-5 prime. Used 1.5” lifts in boots to look close to 6-7. Now he’s under 6-3. About 6-2.5 in reality.
Space said on 22/Mar/19
I’ll give the great 1980s Hogan the benefit of the doubt and say if he happened to square up with today’s Randy Orton, and he was taller than Orton, it would be a 1/2” at the most. So that would put Hogan at 6’4.5” absolute max.
Space said on 22/Mar/19

A legit 6’4” Randy Orton I bet would have looked eye to eye with Hogan in his prime.

@Duhon Dude. Duhon. Dude. Du hast (You have) to understand that the pic of Hogan and Christopher Lloyd is from the movies, which are more fake than wrestling. Hogan could have easily had some Sylvester Stallone lifts hiding in there. The movie "Suburban Commando" came out in 1991. This was Hogan next to 6'3" Fred Ottman in 1990... Click Here

Sgt. Slaughter was billed at 6'4". Here he is w/ Hogan, before they were ravaged by time:
Click Here
Here's Hogan and Slaughter now... Click Here
Still 6'3" Fred Ottman and Slaughter... Click Here Notice how Ottman is towering over Slaughter and he's only 6'3". Hogan is currently 6'2".



But getting back to Christopher Lloyd. First of all, he was 6'0" (not 6'1"), the same height as Andy Kaufman from the show "Taxi"... Click Here , Click Here Don't let the big hair fool you -- he was 6'0". Incidentally, Kaufman played a guy named Latka Gravas (no relation).


Here's Lloyd and Hogan at the end of the movie... Click Here , Click Here
This was Hogan's footwear... Click Here Pretty sure there's a big footwear advantage going on there.


Just for fun, here's a recent pic of max 5'11" Lloyd and Kevin Nash... Click Here

Earlier in the interview, he says that Andre was around 690 lbs when he body slammed him.
Sotiris Gravas said on 21/Mar/19
@Canson Thanks. I actually had Campbell at 6'7.25" on a previous post, but didn't wanna make it seem like I was downgrading him.
RP said on 21/Mar/19
@ Duhon. A few things...peak Christopher Lloyd was 6’0-1/2” barefoot...he only cleared 6’1” in shoes. He may have been a flat 6’0” by 1989-1990 for suburban commando. Also, that sidewalk is slightly slopped for drainage/runofff purposes. I work in civil engineering and geotechnical engineering and we work with concrete a lot. Most sidewalks have a 1” to 1.5” slope for water drainage and run off. Look at both Christopher Lloyd’s and Hogan’s two lead feet while walking. You can see Hogan’s is approximately 1.5” higher. Giving him the illusion of being 1.5” taller than what he actually is with Christopher Lloyd. Hogan does indeed look 6.5” taller than Lloyd in that pic at first glance. However, after you Factor in the sidewalk slope, he’s only 5” taller. So, a 6’0.5” Lloyd gives you a 6’5.5” Hogan...a 6’0” Lloyd (which I believe he was at this age in his life) gives you a 6’5” Hulk Hogan.
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
Vegas made a good point back in August. Hogan claimed something like a 2.5” height loss so maybe he measured something close to 6’5.5 and 6’3 or the former maybe earlier in the day and 6’3” today. Either way, I think Rob has him listed correctly today at around the 6’3” mark but 6’5 range at his peak. I could buy a hair over 6’3 or possibly even a solid 6’3 or a tiny hair under it. I don’t think he would’ve been a solid 6’6 at a low which would essentially mean 6’7” out of bed but I could see something like 6’6 out of bed and 6’5.25 at a low as the sweet spot as it covers why he looked closer to 6’6” at times and why many such as Jessie V (as RP mentioned) said he was 6’5”.
Duhon said on 20/Mar/19
What's the explanation for why Hogan looks so much taller here than 6'1" (at the time) Christopher Lloyd? Click Here
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@RP: I agree with what Ventura said. 6’5 could mean as high as maybe 6’5.25 at a low perhaps
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
@Sotiris: Calais Campbell measured 6’7.75 at the combine so probably 6’7.25 at a low.
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Mar/19
@RP Yeah, 21.5" seems fair, definitely not the biggest arms in world, as he would have ppl believe. Let's not forget that Hogan wasn't exactly chiseled; some of that girth was fat, not all muscle. This is Hogan on the "Rachael Ray" show back in 2008. She whipped out the ol' measuring tape and the "pythons" were 20"... Click Here Fortunately for Hogan, his 2007 sex tape scandal bragging didn't factor into this. Phew! Obviously, Hogan was nowhere near 6'7" (despite his lies), but if he was, it would be very difficult to have 24" arms when they're so long. Very difficult. I daresay impossible sans steroids.
RP said on 20/Mar/19
@ Sotiris,
Underoath in court, at the steroid trials... Hogan said at his largest he was 310 lbs with 22” inch arms. Jesse Ventura also once said that he swore that at his his largest, Hulk Hogan was only 6’5”...300 lbs & his pythons were actually only 21.5” ?? I would say 21.5” is a pretty good guess.

John rogerson said on 19/Mar/19
All the people comparing and contrasting Hogan to the Undertaker need to realize that in 1990-1991 Hogan already lost height. Hogan faced Andre the Giant in Shea Stadium in 1979 so to get a peak height before wear and tear set in one has to go back to 1977. Peak height flat foot was no less than 6’6 and may have been 6’7 in 1977.
David Banner said on 19/Mar/19
@Space - finally another voice of reason along with @Sotiris
It really is hard for people that grew up with a larger than life Hulk Hogan, to concede that he was never close to his kayfabe billed height and weight. None of the WWE superstars were! Too many obvious examples show he was never over 6’4”-6’4.5” and certainly not over 280.
Lifts and customs boots and peoples word of mouth can produce strong make believe
Sotiris Gravas said on 19/Mar/19
@Space 100% agree. How big do you think his "pythons" really were...?
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
@Space: I think a peak Hogan was at least a full 6’5” but probably not 6’6”
Space said on 18/Mar/19
Hogan was 6’4.5” 275-280lbs in his hay day. He was not 6’6” at all, and wasn’t 300+ lbs.

he’s only a strong 6’2” today despite popular belief

He was not close to 6'6" because he was shorter than the current Undertaker.
6'5", but really max, at his peak.
Now 191cm.
Daniel reynolds said on 15/Mar/19
Terry hulk hhogan was ft6,7.5 in 1980 for the record bare foot, no more no less. Terry mentioned it himself. People guess ft6,5, but he was taller than dolph lundre who was ft6,5 no less in rocky 4 facing stallone in the centre of the ring. When terry was facing stallone in the centre of the ring, stallone came up to terrys neck and terry wasn,t even standing up straight facing down on slyvester stallone. Dolph lundren was standing up straight facing slyvester stallone in the centre of the ring in rocky 4 and stallone came up to lundrens lip.!!!
Canson said on 14/Mar/19
@Sotiris: a peak Hogan had to have been a legit 6’5” guy at minimum. He was not below that. In fact, He looked at times closer to 6’6” especially with Andre the Giant. While I don’t think he was quite that tall, I do agree with 62B that he was 6’5” range. His encounter with his Grandfather adds up with how Hogan would look with Tiny Lister. Tiny also called Hulk 6’5”. Absolute best case 6’5 and change. If you see pics of Undertaker with Hulk at their peaks, it was around 1.5-2” difference between them. 62B’s encounter with Taker adds up with what Rob lists him give or take. Possible he lost height and was 6’7.25 maybe or that he was that when 62B met him or that he was 6’7” flat all along. Rob is more likely to have overlisted someone than underlisting them but either way a 6’7 or 6’7.25 Taker puts Hogan 6’5-6’5.5. He couldn’t have only been 6’4 or less peak
Sotiris Gravas said on 14/Mar/19
62B I noticed Studd's shoulders are higher, but body types vary and height is height. Not quite sure what you meant by Studd moving, making him look shorter. It doesn't appear as if he's slouching or momentarily ducking when shifting from side to side... Not sure about that.

@Sotiris. I still think Hogan always came out a little taller than Brody. I could see Hogan at 6'4.5" as an absolute low, but I still think a solid 6'5" would be a better listing. I think Studd wore lifts more often than not and maybe had Hogan by an inch barefoot.

Barry and 6'4.5" Charles Barkley (2015)... Click Here


I honestly think Studd was a 6'5" guy who often wore lifts. Definitely not more than 6'6". Hogan looked to be the same height as Bruiser Brody, who Stan Hansen said was 6'4". Brody was listed as 6'4" early on when he played football. I previously posted a pic of Hogan next to Stan out of the ring, no cowboy boots (footwear visible), to compare w/ Brody and Hansen... Hogan and Brody's height looked identical. Interestingly, Brody was billed as 6'8", same as Hogan at 6'7"and 6'8". I genuinely believe Hogan was never more than 6'4.5". And I do believe Jesse Ventura when he said Hogan wore lifts. Hogan almost always wore cowboy boots outside of the ring b/c he had to keep that 6'7" (6'8") kayfabe billed height alive.

Maybe Studd was really 6'5.5" peak height, 1" more than Hogan.

Hogan looks to be wearing the same type of boot Studd would often wear in the Rocky scene. In the Sly Studd picture Sly looks to be wearing lifts and Studd looks to have a more normal boot. Hogan was a solid 6'5" guy when I saw him, unless he was wearing lifts. I admit that I used to think Studd could have hit 6'7", but now it seems barefoot he was probably 6'6" at the most.

@Ronster: I’m 37. However, with Hogan, Rob lists him 6’6” so I doubt he was ever more than that. I do see from 62B and RP where Hogan was billed 6’8”. So I was wrong there. As for Taker, the most I could conceivably see is the 6’7.5 where Rob billed him. I see anywhere 6’7-6’7.5 and Hogan could be anywhere 6’5-6’6” peak barefoot. I don’t discount possible 6’6” absolute peak but 62B makes a good point. Also for Andre, he wasn’t any higher than 7’0” peak. 6’11” range is even debatable when you see pics. 7’0” is I guess but that’s absolute max and likely was a bit less. I respect your opinion But you do see here that almost everyone else has Hogan 6’5-6’6” as well and Taker most people believe was 6’7” range peak

RONSTER said on 5/Mar/19
Canson, I don’t know how young you are or where you get your information but it is fact that Hogan was billed at 6’8” for his entire run in the 80’s with the WWF. I know this because I watched him live many times and in every PPV he was announced at 6’8” and 303lbs. He was also referred to as being closer to 6’9” many times by Gorilla Monsoon. This makes complete sense, they inflated heights by 2 inches virtually all the time. He was over 6’6” and almost a full 6’7” barefoot so they billed and referred to him 2 inches taller, just like Andre was 7’2” so they billed him as 7’4”, Undertaker was legit over 6’8” barefoot so they billed him as 6’10”, Warrior was 6’2.5” so they billed him 6’4”, and the list goes on and on. He started getting billed at 6’7” in WCW, he was now down to 6’6” or a bit less and the Kay-Fabe era was pretty much over due to so many celebrities of known height being on their shows.
____________________________________________________________________________----

Andre was not ever 7'2". This I know first hand with out a doubt. Undertaker did not look over 6'7" when I saw him at the YMCA in the early 90's. Hogan was at most an inch taller than my 6'4" Grandfather in 1980. Also early billings for Hogan, like in the late 70's was 6'7". I never saw Warrior in person, but I doubt he was much over 6'1"
Hogan said on 7/Mar/19
I think hogan was 6’4.75-6’5” in his prime from like 1979-1985. From there he slowly shrank to about 6’2.5” by the early 2000’s. He would square off with real 6’2” guys like Goldberg, Lesnar and HHH and look generally the same height as them in the early 2000s.

Later the commentator says 6’5.5 and 6’6 earlier in the day which is very much believable at his peak. The 6’6” listing has an outside chance but I think realistically a strong 6’5 to weak 6’6” is his peak

@ Canson...early in his career, 1978-1987’ish he was “occasionally” billed @ 6’8”.
As a matter of fact...in the official Wrestle Mainia 3 program tale of the tape in 1987 he is listed @ 6’8” & 294 lbs. from 1978-1988 it was 80/20, 6’7” or 6’8”...80% of the time he was listed @ 6’7”, but...randomly they would about 20% of time list him @ 6’8” for almost a decade.
Sotiris Gravas said on 5/Mar/19
@Canson Agreed, Hogan was billed as 6'7", but folks are inclined to think 6'8" b/c of things like this... Click Here They might even believe that his biceps were as big as 24", which they weren't... or that Andre was actually 7'4"... which he obviously wasn't.

SnerhagAip777: do you really wish that you were only 6’0” tall versus 6’5”? I can see an argument for 6’5” being too tall but 6’0” versus something like 6’2 or 6’3” I’m surprised.

I'm 6ft5 and i hope that by age 65 (or earlier) i will be 6ft2, which would be amazing. If i make it to 85, i hope that by that time i will have lost at least 5 inches. So by the time i'm fragile and old, i'm gonna have my perfect height.
Canson said on 2/Mar/19
@Ronster: I respect your opinion but even Rob only lists him a solid 6’6” at his peak and another poster here 62B also said he saw him in the 80s with his 6’4” Grandfather and that he was only about an inch taller. Undertaker was 6’7” range peak and easily 1.5-2” taller than Hulk. I definitely see an argument for 6’6” but over it looks a bit much. As for how he looks today, you may have seen him prior to some of the other posters here meaning he could’ve lost height from when you saw him to when others have. I think JoeyB33’s estimate is a bit low but likely because Hogan wasn’t standing as tall as he could. 6’2” looks too low in my opinion. I still think he’s 6’3” today. My estimate in his prime was likely a little above 6’5 however not a flat one. Meaning he would possibly wake up 6’6 and dip under to 6’5.25 possibly 6’5.5. But 6’5 range covers that
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
@Danimal: there have been a few people that have met him here that have said he’s closer to 6’3 If not over by a bit. Only JoeyB33 thought he was closer to 6’2”. Maybe it was his posture but then you have some that have said 6’3.5 as well. He generally looks around 6’3” if he stands his best in pictures. But even if he really was the full 6’6” at his peak (6’5 range is really where I have him whether it be solid or strong 6’5 or maybe weak 6’6”) I still say that he hasn’t lost 4” in his lifetime. He may have woke up to 6’6” peak and measured 6’5” range based on the site standards. 3” is even pushing it but possible if he really maintained 6’6” in his prime. But Realistically, it’s somewhere in the 2-2.5” range. If Rob’s listings are off for his peak and current, it’s not by that much maybe up to 1/2” on the peak and his current looks pretty close to what he could conceivably measure today. At his peak I can’t see much difference between he and Tiny Lister
Ben Bell said on 1/Mar/19
When I met Hogan in 2015 he was 6’3.5. Certainly no less.
I had no footwear advantage.
I had the pic on here. I’m 6’0.5 and Hulk had me by 3” minimum.
He had obvious postural problems, his knees were bent and his hips tilted.
I’d say he’d lost around 2” from his peak of between 6’5 and 6’6.
He’s 100% over 6’2.
When you stand next to him his physical proportions are clearly that of a very large man. Super long arms, huge head, hands etc.
rawdshaq said on 1/Mar/19
@Sotiris He was billed at 6'8". When he first joined the WWF they did describe him as "near 7 feet tall". He could have easily been 6'6".
RONSTER said on 1/Mar/19
Canson, he said many times his mother made everybody take their shoes off and she would measure them by putting a ruler on their head and marking it on the wall, then she would measure their height and he was 6’7”. I personally saw him up close in the 80’s and again in 2014 and he is considerably shorter than he was before. I would believe he was over 6’6” and she rounded up, in 2014 when he would stand straight which was not much he easily was over 6’4” barefoot still. At 65 now he likely is a bit under 6’4”, he only appears shorter due to his horrible posture and bent knees all the time. 6’5” is way too low for his peak.
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
@184guy: Rampage has been around and active even longer than 2010. If he saw him in person at 6’5” he may be it, but if we are talking just estimating him from a distance or in pics we aren’t sure. Also unless he saw footwear it’s no guarantee. But I’d imagine Rampage looked for that especially being he’s been around as long as he has. However Estimates vary from one poster to the next. As for Sotiris, I don’t think he’s deliberately shaving an inch off people. His estimates may or may not be off but that’s what he thinks of them in the pics. I don’t always agree with his estimates but he is right on some I’ll say.
Canson said on 28/Feb/19
@Rawdshaq: he likely had shoes on when his mother measured him. I’m more of an advocate of 6’5 range but if he ended up near 6’6” it wouldn’t be anything over it and it would likely be something like 6’5.5 over 6’6” which puts him near 6’7” in showed or it could’ve been an oversight. My personal opinion is 6’5-6’5.5 range and I do agree today 6’3” give or take up to 1/4”

@Danimal I find it hard to believe that a 6'6" guy would only be billed as 6'7", especially someone they wanted to promote as a true formidable champion. If an adult Bruiser Brody was only 6'4" and some change, then maybe Hogan was only around 6'4.5", not even 6'5". Look at the pics I posted of Hogan w/ Stan Hansen (footwear visible) vs. Brody/Hansen. Does that look like a 6'6" guy to you...? Not to me. Let's not forget that when Jesse Ventura said Hogan wore internal lifts, maybe he was actually telling the truth, same as Bruce Prichard vis-a-vis Taker. As for Hogan presently being 6'2"... on that we can agree. Spectators can't really tell how tall a wrestler is when distance and a wrestling ring serves as a great divide. Seeing someone up-close at a public appearance is altogether different, which is why Hogan almost always wore cowboy boots to keep "up" appearances of his billed height. A shrinking 6'10" guy like Andre had to wear cowboy boots out in public to be somewhat closer to his 7'4" billing, especially given his poor posture which made him look 6'9" -- the height Chuck Wepner believed him to be. Anyways, that's my 2 cents, unaffected by inflation.

P.S. I understand that Hogan had a lot of surgeries, but those began at the tail end of the '90s. Here's Hogan w/ Fred Ottman back in 1990... Click Here Keep in mind that Ottman was only 6'3".

@Sotiris

Please make a great favor : stop deliberately shavind everyone 1 inch . Crush wasn't 6'4

If I'm not wrong , Rampage met him and Rampage himself is about 6'3 7/8 and said that Crush looked at least 6'5 , and I'm don't think Rampage is a troll . He is active on this site since 2010 at least I belief

He says his mom measured him at 6'7" when he was younger and now that he lost height, he was 6'4" but regained back to 6'5"? Is it possible that his mom measured him slightly too tall? Maybe an inch too much? 6'6" peak, 6'3" currently? Probably the case
Canson said on 27/Feb/19
My guess for Hall is 6’3.5 and Hogan May be flat 6’3 at a low or 6’3 1/8”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Feb/19
@Vegas
Wow, didn't know that until now. It's very rare for a wrestler to get underlisted. But obviously Lance Storm saying Christian's 6'1"-6'2" is wrong though.

So, as of 2013 (he's had more surgeries since), he had 8 back surgeries (all spinal fusions), 2 full hip replacements and 8 knee replacements. He once stood a legit 6'6" and is presently 6'2".

RP said on 26/Feb/19
@ Sotiris, after looking at all the photos, videos, diferent postures ...and both men had on similar black sneakers. Current Hall is 1/4” taller than Current Hogan.
That being said:
If Hogan is 6’3”, then Hall is 6’3.25”
If Hogan is 6’2.75”, then Hall is 6’3”
If Hogan is 6’2.5”, then Hall now is struggling with even hitting 6’3” now, likely 6’2.75” afternoon height.
Rob, Hall needs a downgrade for 2019.

Shoot peak 6'6'' 300 makes sense to me. His billed weight in AWA was like 320 but no way. That's a work weight. His 302 was realistic until the steroid scandal, and then we're talking about at least a 30 lb loss at the end of the WWF run.

@The Ben Looking forward to that pic w/ Nash, dude. Hogan might be 6'2.5", w/ Momoa at 6'3.5". I agree that Abyss could be as low as 6'5"... but I can't see Nash more than 6'8.5" now (no more than 4" on 6'4.5" Joe Manganiello), and I still think Ford is 6'6", max.

The Martyn Ford shots are all over the place, there are shots of him and Hogan with barely 2" between them.
I'd say Ford's 6'7.
There are shots of him towering Momoa.
I bet Momoa and Hogan are farily similar in heigh. Maybe 1" to Momoa max.
The Ben said on 25/Feb/19
Sotiris Gravas
I never met Matt Morgan to talk to but I did stand right next to him.
I'd say maxium 6'8 barefoot, could have been 6'7. No way 6'10. Noticably shorter than Kevin Nash in person who I'd say still could be 6'10. I'm meeting him again in a month of so and I'll get another pic.
I also met Abyss who they billed up to 7ft, I'd say 6'6 maximum, more likely 6'5.

Rob Terry I'd agree with just over 6'3. I stoood next to him for quite a while. for such a huge guy he had zero charisma or presence.
RP said on 24/Feb/19
Ron, Sotiris just posted a pic a recent pic of Hogan, Hall, Nash & a female fitness competitor. Hogan & Hall are the exact same height. One could even argue Hogan edging him out in the photo by 0.25”?? And there are many pics from last fall’s NWO reunion tour where Hogan & Hall look the exact same height? So, his can Hall be Listed by you @ current 6’4” & Hogan current 6’3” ?? IMO, no way Scott Hall is over 6’3.5” right now. And if Hogan is 6’3”? Hall is no more than 6’3” to 6’3.25” ...IMO? Your thoughts Sotiris after posting that pic?
Editor Rob
Hall might be 6ft 3.5 today, I have seen a couple of friends who met him a few years ago and 6ft 3.5-4 is their estimate.
Canson said on 23/Feb/19
@RP: spot on. He mentioned that one disc in his neck is jammed so he has less space to compress than average person
Canson said on 23/Feb/19
@Vegas: I would put Corbin at his original listing 6’6” (by this site’s standards) being the combine is an early morning measurement. But what you said adds up because Strowman is only at most 1/2” taller meaning if he measured at the same time as Corbin at a Combine he would be similar in height with maybe Brock Osweiler 6’6 7/8 or maybe the full 6’7” at best. I think Rob has both listed ok in terms of difference but I’d move both down 1/4” 6’6 and 6’6.5
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Feb/19
@Vegas
When was Christian ever billed at 5'10"? I've only seen 6'1" and maybe 6'2". WWE or any other wrestling promotion isn't dumb enough to underlist a wrestler by 2 inches.

@RP: Ali was only a full 6’6” at a low at his peak. He mentioned that in later years that he is a weak 6’6” today

The National Enquirer this month has him at 6' 7" today. May we all laugh in private.
Vegas' said on 20/Feb/19
Stop looking for logic in pro wrestling billings as there is none.

Corbin measured 6'6 1/2 barefoot and is listed 6'8 in wee. Strowmans probably only an inch or so shy of his 6'8 billing listing (he was also listed 6'8 in strongman), Drew McIntyre is an inch or so shy of his 6'5 WWE listing. Reigns was measured 6'2.5 and listed 6'3 in wwe. On flip side Mysterio is 4 inches short of his 5'6 listing, Kane is 5 short of his 7 foot billing. Rollins and Ambrose are similar height yet billed at 6'1 and 6'4 respectively.

Christian was billed 5'10 and almost 6 foot in person, spike dudley is nowhere near as short as his 5'5 wrestling billing in person.
RP said on 19/Feb/19
Sotiris, great pics of Matt Morgan. He legit only looks 6’7-1/2” MAX (could even argue 6’7” flat) in all those photos. Especially when comparing him with 6’6” to 6’6-1/2” Ali Baba! My thoughts...a peak & at his prime Matt Morgan was 6’7-3/4” afternoon barefoot (6’8” morning) and was 6’9” in normal footwear...6’9-1/2” in wrestling boots = pro wrestling billing of 6’10” plus.

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

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

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

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

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

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