How many inches he had on Taker?
Dan Trojan said on 28/Jan/19
Phenom he was actually legitimitely measure 7'6" by the guinness book of world records so that is his true heighr
Phenom89 said on 25/Jan/19
More i think about more , in my opinion, he was few inches less than 7'7.
I exaggerate, and i say 7'4 7'5
mohammad said on 25/Jan/19
His real height was 7 and a half feet . His billed height however , was actually 8 feet !

He was actually 200 kilograms , yet he did not look fat !

There is no question in my mind that this man was classified as being afflicted with Gigantisims .
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 7/Dec/18
Giant Gonzales and Andre were both were way overlisted by the WWE, they were nowhere near their listed heights. They were both big dudes though undoubtedly. He was nowhere near 8 feet tall, only 17 people in history were verified as 8 foot or taller. Gonzales was more like 7'6"-7'7" and Andre was like 7'0".

Jorge was measured @ 7ft 6 he had a Website and i emailed the site asking how tall he was
They said he grew to 2.32 meters so he could have grown to 7ft 7 after is WWF Debut
Canson said on 24/Jul/18
This should go to show that most wrestlers (Andre the Giant, Taker, Hogan, etc) are over-listed when this guy measured 7’6”and was listed at 8’0” tall

Billed 7'7" in WCW, and 7'11" in WWF.

Giant Gonzalez was 7 ft 7 inches tall
Takerfan said on 23/Dec/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8"

Your right Shaq is not a wrestler, if he's 7 foot then so is Khali. There's pics of the 2 side by side and they're pretty much identical in height. Gonzales peak would've been 7'7 imo. He had a good foot over Taker in their Wrestlemania match.
ImAlexandros said on 21/Dec/17
Giant Gonzalez he was 7' 6" not 7' 7" or 8' 0"
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 18/Dec/17
@Takerfan

Anonymous is also wrong at calling Shaq a wrestler, and he's more like 7'0" rather than 7'1".

Okay let's break it down. I've seen him billed at 7,4 and 7,6 and 7,7 even my friend says he is 7,9. He is often billed as 8,0. Looking at him beside the Undertaker in 1993 he looks legit 7,6-7,7. But the Undertaker at the time was 6,8 solid, let's assume Undertaker was wearing 1 inch soles. That would make him 6,9. Plus Giant Gonzales hair makes him look about 7,8 I say Gonzales is about 7,7.5. Even his basketball contract says he was 7,7.5 or 7,8 and at the time he probably was not wearing those big soles in basket ball.

In conclusion I would bet my taco on that Giant Gonzales is probaly barely 7,7.5

Yes Rob, good chance he grow 1/2 inch after of his wrestling days

Guinness World Records measured him officially at 7'7.25", so his height isn't really up for debate and should be set to this number.
Guanzo said on 20/Aug/17
Brahim Takioullah would be 5'' on him.

Check here: Click Here

About 15 inches taller than Hogan considering posture. Considering footware, 13-14 inches taller. A 6'5" Hogan would mean a 7'6"-7'7" Gonzalez.

The tallest wrestler!
-------------

There are a couple of guys that were arguably taller like Max Palmer and Édouard Beaupre. Modern post territorial pro wrestling yes he was tallest for sure.
Miguel said on 19/Aug/17
I saw this guy on TV, looks 7'7 to me, possibly less
Undertaker Frank said on 18/Aug/17
He had a Website and i was told he grew more because of hos condition so it might be possible They said he was 2.32 cm

Rob, he was listed as 7'6" in the Guinness Book in the early 2000s. He should be lowered to 7'6". I forget which year but I'm telling you for a fact that between 2000-2002, he was officially listed as 7'6" by Guinness Book of World Records.

That is not true,he was only listed as a side note saying he was not 8' as billed by the WWF .that would of made him 3'' taller than Radhouane Charibib.who was the GBR tallest man,at the time.and they quote he's NBA draft saying he was 7'6'' even that is wrong because in Argentina he was listed at 230cm.(7'6.5'') so that was a USA round down from the 230cm.and the 2000 GBR only gos up to July 1999.it was then said in about 2002 that he had started growing again and had been measured at 7'7.25''.now if you get any Guinness publication like sports book of Records you find him listed as the tallest wrestler at 7'7''.
Vegas said on 17/Aug/17
He was listed 7'6 in the NBA so I don't think he was taller than that.
Zahid said on 17/Aug/17
I would also guess in that range. Could be slightly under. But not sure due to lack of photos (especially with Giants closer to his height).
John B said on 17/Aug/17
I had read reports he was a lot closer to 7'4 ?? Sad ending for this giant who ended up in a wheel chair before he died.
eminmim said on 16/Aug/17

MSJC said on 16/Aug/17
Aha yes! WWE and WCW regularly billed him at 8 feet. In one of my many editions of the GBOR they list him as 7'7.
Leah said on 16/Aug/17
8ft according to WWE
Dalziel said on 16/Aug/17
Was billed as 8ft in WWF.
Chaz said on 16/Aug/17
Good to see him on here,could have been the 7'7.25''in later life that has been quoted.by the Argentina office of the Guinness Book of world Records,but I don't think he was under 7'6.5''.

ive heard people say he is 8ft but, in wrestling they lie
Danimal said on 16/Aug/17
Not much to dispute here. The man was around this height. I heard 7'6" during his wrestling days (early 90's) and I remember hearing he continued to grow and was measured at close to 7'8" at some point?
JohanS said on 15/Aug/17
7'7 in 2017 is not even tall anymore...
Mincer said on 15/Aug/17
I believe he was the tallest wrestler so far
Undertaker Frank said on 15/Aug/17
I was about 20 feet from him Hugh Man !!!!
loka said on 15/Aug/17
The tallest wrestler of all time. His fight with the Undertaker stays in the memories.
176cm guy said on 15/Aug/17
Hey Rob, you should add his WWF's billed height as they describe him as a whopping 8 feet tall lol.
Mayfield said on 15/Aug/17
Worth mentioning is he was also billed a 8'0 as well. Kinda like how Kane was billed at 7'0 while in reality, not even close to cracking that area
Aza said on 15/Aug/17
In WCW he was listed as 7'6 although he's so gigantic I would honestly be able to tell the difference so will guess at 7'6.5.
Jim Hopper said on 15/Aug/17
Legit.
RP said on 15/Aug/17
Rob, why the 7'7" listing?...when he had a documted barefoot height measurement of 7'6.25" from the early 1990's? With the NBA & Atlanta Hawks, if I'm not mistaken?
Editor Rob: he could have still grew a bit with gigantism.
Sean said on 15/Aug/17
Nice add Rob. Wasn't he more 7'6" than 7'7"?
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 15/Aug/17
Great Rob! Probably a rare case who grew still slightly until he got really ill

This seems right

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.
