Good you finally added him.
No doubt he is the tallest.. In those times people probably thought he was legit 8ft.

Some height comparisons from WM 9 showing how large Giant Gonzalez really was compared to Hogan, Luger, Scott Hall, Ed Leslie, and Bob Backlund (all are standing in similar spots in the ring)

He has been measured 232cm ( 7'7.3" )by Guinness Book staff...

You can't be more legit than that

( and at such height weight his morning height is probably an inch taller )

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.

Brahim Takioullah would be 5'' on him.

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.

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.

The tallest wrestler!
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
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/17

This seems right

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