Solid 6'2

He’s an absolute trailblazer in professional wrestling. Yet his acting skills in the ring have always been sub par. He never reacts when anyone hits him. Even when giant guys like Big show or Braun Strowman hit him he never reacts..

He’s looked about 6’2” on average throughout his career.
Zampo said on 10/Sep/18
I just remembered that Mark Henry appeared at LFCC 2018. Rob, did you manage to get a glimpse of him walking around? If so, Would you say 6'2 is reasonable?
Editor Rob
He might have lost half inch of height.
Zampo said on 6/Sep/18
Legend! Been in the business for so long now. It's crazy to think I was playing on the PS1 with this guy. This is now approaching 20 years ago! I'm pretty sure Mark Henry was listed as 6'1 on early WWE (called WWF back then) games, which I'm sure were reflective of their official billed heights. Off the top of my head, The Rock was billed 6'5, Triple H at 6'4, Chris Jericho at 6'0 for instance.
Poemyboy said on 5/Aug/18
Maybe at his peak he may be 6'2" but now he's closer to 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/18
He’s literally been reported 6ft1 up to 6ft4 in equal measure.

I think 189cm peak. Puts him right between those
Martin 6'2 said on 12/May/18
Hmmm that's strange, in my WWE encyclopedia, and an old WWE sticker book I used to have, and on old PS2 games, he's listed as 6'1"
viper said on 18/Apr/18
He's 6-1
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 18/Apr/18

He does look around 6'1" next to 6'3" Titus O'neil though Click Here but he looks 6'1.5" today next to most people
viper said on 16/Apr/18
He was billed at 6-1 at one point in the 90s
JackA said on 16/Apr/18
I actually believe that Mark Henry was a solid 6’3” or at the very least 6’2” ¾. Now though, he has lost a lot of height through injury and ageing. I would estimate his current height as a flat 6’2”, perhaps just under.
Juggernaut said on 16/Apr/18
Mark Henry backstage at the WWE HOF event looked an inch taller than Triple H, Goldberg and Bubba Ray Dudley.. More than 2 inches taller than Vince McMahon.. Judging by the photos they were all in dress shoes..
Canson said on 15/Apr/18
@Viper: his weight doesn’t help his cause. I find it very difficult to believe someone at nearly 400lbs at 6’2ish is only 18.9% body fat. I’m about 12% now and am 220 lbs and 6’4” and very fit and relatively lean

I can't find any info where Henry was ever listed 6'1".
viper said on 13/Apr/18
Hes 6-1. They wouldn't underbill him
tree said on 10/Apr/18
He always looked 6ft2 like here with Batista Click Here
xpac said on 8/Dec/17
He's more taller than roman reigns
ANDY said on 20/Nov/17
6ft 4in Seems Possible.
Roman reigns said on 9/Nov/17
I have seen Mark Henry height in Olympic...he is six feet 3 inches nd Kurt angle height is 180cm in 1996 Olympic game...!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/17
Yeah, James I think he might've been that.

Certainly would rule out 6ft1 and 6ft4!
Juggernaut said on 15/Sep/17
Was watching Wrestlemania 29 today the match between Henry and Ryback, Mark looked 1.25 inches taller than the supposedly 6'1' Ryback..So I think Mark Henry is in the same league of heights as Triple H,Lesnar,Batista,Rock today..6'2'+ I was actually surprised that he was once billed at 6'1' in 2007 or so..Talk about underbilling,same company that billed Batista at 6'6' and Kurt Angle at 6'2' hilarious..
James B said on 13/Aug/17
Rob is it possible he was 6'2.5 if he lost half an inch?
Editor Rob: I couldn't rule the chance out.
Slim 182 cm said on 12/Aug/17
Rob, this guys been lifting 350+ lbs deadlifts from 17 yrs old, I think he needs a peak height and a current one...
Editor Rob: a half inch difference is possible from peak.
James B said on 8/Aug/17
Rob to me he looks taller than Brock lesner or tripl h

Maybe it's his build?
Editor Rob: at times Henry has looked very big, other times you think the guy is only 6ft 1!

@ Nik - Hi! It is Sunday morning, the 6th August, and I am rounding up some names which I haven't entered into my 'main' record yet, which go in alphebetically, as you know! I have gathered a further 39 and now I'm going to stopped in order to check out the Emmerdale omnibus.

But first I'm going to thank you for your comment in reply to an 'animal-based' one of mine, (detailed below), and it is a very appropriate time in which to write the reply because Erramius is washing herself every bit as deafeningly noisily as she was when I wrote the last one!
Pixie is downstairs, probably waiting for me to do some washing-up! He has a new favourite game whereby he sits watching me wash the cups and dishes through the window right next to the sink, sounding off as loudly as he can! He has such a loud miaow that my boyfriend's pet name for him is Charles Asnavour (don't know whether that's the correct spelling!).
Hope your weekend is running smoothly and that you're enjoying yourself.
All the best to you and your family! 👍
Cheers for now! 😁 🐈
Nik said on 20/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Well that's animals for you, but we love them all the same! They will have to pay out of their piggy bank!
I thought I'd take advantage of the fact that Rob sometimes does an evening shift so I came onto the website and noticed signs of movement! I then looked round the website and saw your comment.

Yeah, take it easy Sandy and have a good evening!

Look out on the Rob Paul page because the comment I have promised has been submitted late this afternoon!

Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jul/17
I know this has nothing to do with feet, but I'm being dribbled all over by my little orange, furry man, Pixie!
I have tried to push him away, but he keeps coming back!
The dirty, dribblesome laddie will have to pay for my pedicure out of his pocket money now!
Ah! As if I could! 😹💞

Now I have the white one, Erramius, who was 10 two days ago, sitting on my lap washing herself as noisily as she always does, and shaking her chops in the manner only usually associated with a dog, complete with spray! She is another piggie! 🐷

Have a great evening, Nik!
I'm planning to chill tonight! I was at the hospital 🏥 today having X-Rays and a blood test!
Nik said on 20/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Are you still toying with the idea of having the pedicure? Get yer self booked in then!

steel toe-capped boots would well and truly do the trick in terms of delivering a nasty kick!

Slim 182 cm said on 20/Jul/17
I reckon 93 kg of lean muscle he has ATM.
Slim 182 cm said on 19/Jul/17
James B, cmon man, the guys fat! If you search on google long enough, you'll realise he never takes his shirt off for that reason, Nor does he shave his facial hair.

18% body fat my ass, more like 30-50. If Jackman and rock have shrunk from degeneration/hernias than this guy probably has as well.
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Jul/17
@ Nik - Well, next time I shall try to remember to wear a nice strong pair of steel toe-capped boots to protect my ten tiny toes!
Then I think I'll have well and truly earned myself the pedicure I've been going on about lately! 👍 😇
Nik said on 19/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Well it would have been better to borrow one of those 2 fists above instead, toes break very easily!

See you on Rob's page!

Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jul/17
@ Nik - The kick nearly broke my toes off! That's what! Arggh! 😢

What happened?

It needs a bandage! 😢

@ Sandy Cowell

Yeah, give it a kick up the ****!

Wel, you will have a lower centre of gravity than Mr Henry so your kick will be a lethal weapon!

@ Sandy Cowell

Too true it needs a kick in the nuts! One time worlds strongest man Mark Henry and Big Show could see to that along with Sandy Cowell, of course!

Thanks for cheering me up!
Redm said on 15/Jul/17
I would say 6'2 flat, but any chance he is losing height? He is 46 and could start to drop a fraction. And don't forget some years back he was carrying some weight before the impressive weight loss he has had in recent years. What do you say Rob.
AJ said on 14/Jul/17
he looks around like 6'1.5
heightchecker34 said on 13/Jul/17
Hmmm, I always though Mark Henry was in the 6'1 range. He does wear pretty chunky boots, but even then, he looks similar to other 185cm guys. I am not quite seeing the 6'2 range, unless this was during his Olympic days before he ever stood foot in a wrestling ring. His enormous girth does make it hard to compare with other wrestlers, although he does hold himself pretty well. I will go with strong 6'1 at most, unless there is more proof he is over 188cm.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jul/17
@ Nik's autocorrect.

You need a kick in the nuts!
I know what a mistake by an autocorrect is like. They are enormously easy to sniff out!
'Big bottle I'd Lucozade' is exactly the same rubbish my autocorrect spits out at me!
Now go and apologize to Nik or I will come round and give you a kick in the nuts - in a couple of day's time, the 15th July! Regards, Sandy!

@ Nik

Hi! It's Jaffa 🐝 wishing you a slightly early Happy Birthday!
James B said on 12/Jul/17
Is Mark Henry pure muscle? 400 pounds is an awful lot for 6ft2.

I mean dwayne Johnson (being samoan already gives him a genetic advantage for muscle building ) working his ass off lifting heavy weights at the gym and probably taking roids can only get up too 260 pounds.
andre said on 12/Jul/17
until today mark henry claim to be the strongest man alive what is your opinion rob ?

i do feel if not now at his prime he was , there is no human like him with such bone mass and the records he had he could do much more at least i do feel at is prime he was infact the strongest man on the planet he shut up them when he win the arnold classic 2003 without any training also he is drug free he never took any steroid while other strongest man take

Nik said on 12/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

He is another celebrity with a smiling face! He would probably love that big bottle I'd lucozade!

I will give him 6'2"!
David Allen Patrick Maddox III said on 12/Jul/17
Yeah mark is definitely a little over 6'2 maybe by a half
tony t. said on 12/Jul/17
Tbh wouldn't surprise me if he was 6'2.5. He is not under 6'2!
Gerry said on 11/Jul/17
Not in a million years is this guy ever been as low as 18.9% bodyfat he is easily at least 30% body fat and that's being generous
andre said on 11/Jul/17
rob mark henry lost weight give me a range is weight now in 2017 from 150kilos to 170kilos, also i think at his prime he was the world strongest man what you think rob ?
Editor Rob: he probably did go up and down at times through his career...and yeah at one point you would say he was the strongest man in the world.
Jake T. said on 10/Jul/17
He was billed at 6'1 years ago and now he is billed at 6'4. I think 6'2 is the right guess for Mark.
John Cena said on 10/Jul/17
Rob who will pull off least 6'2 range. Mark Henry, Ryan Reynolds or Brock Lesnar
Editor Rob: all 3 at times have pulled off looking solid 6ft 2 men.
Maybe Lesnar is a guy who didn't fall under the mark and was more a solid 6ft 2 fella....but so too would Reynolds fall into that category.

It's hard to imagine only 6ft 1.5 for Ryan as his claim once suggested...although maybe he got measured on a bad day slouching!
hunt said on 10/Jul/17
At his heaviest he looked a bit larger than the Big Show Click Here
Imagine if Henry was 7 feet tall,he would be bigger than Andre the Giant ever was
gds said on 10/Jul/17
mark is six three. Ive meet him many times. Im six three in a half.
Juggernaut said on 10/Jul/17
Not willing to bet anything below 6'2' for Mark Henry..Today I think he is 390lbs to be over 400lbs..Always towered over John Cena,Angle,almost same as Batista,Lesnar..Did tower over Triple H once..
ma said on 10/Jul/17
at his heaviest closer to 500 than 400
Ice said on 9/Jul/17
Great add ROB
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jul/17
@ Nik - Those Henry hoovers are fantastic and I wish I had one myself! My hoover is a hefty thing, but I mustn't moan about him or he'll break done and a hoover's an essential in a multi-cat household!
We haven't got a Dyson but we do have a Tyson on the website - and he is welcome to do my hoovering - for 5p an hour and a delicious jar of honey made for him personally by Jaffa the bumbly bee! 👉🐝
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jul/17
At his heaviest not far from 500lbs
Nik said on 9/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Very funny Sandy!

I also like your way with words as in "now I see the connection"!

I wonder if there are any Dyson's on the Site? My Mum has an "Henry" hoover!

The 6'2" quote is probably accurate, not the 6'3" claim.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jul/17
185cm always looked too low for him...
ma said on 8/Jul/17
Rob, do you think that today he is over 420 pounds?
At peak I would have said 420 pounds sounds reasonable
Editor Rob: I'm not sure what Mark has claimed in recent years, but he looks like he'd be at least 400 range.
Kourosh said on 8/Jul/17
i always had him at 6'1
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 7/Jul/17
Always have a 6´1.5"-6´1.75" feeling for his barefoot height, not under it.
andre said on 7/Jul/17
188cm with shoes not barefoot and batista is 191cm with shoes
ma said on 7/Jul/17
He seems to be taller than Roman Reigns, but he has at least 1 inc of footwear more (monster boots of 2.75 inc)
If you put Reigns at 6 ft 2 you need to consider Mark at 6 ft 1.5-1.75
f you put Reigns at 6 ft 2.25 you need to consider Mark at 6 ft 1.75-2

Markus said on 7/Jul/17
6-2 is perfect for Henry.
even said on 7/Jul/17
his real height is 6 foot 1
his billed height (fake height) is 6 foot 4
his weight = 400 pounds
James B said on 7/Jul/17
Rob I am thinking Brock lesner could destroy Henry in a street fight giving his MMA skills.
James B said on 7/Jul/17
I thought he was John cenas height?
Theo said on 7/Jul/17
I guessed 6'2 for a long time
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jul/17
Until recently, I thought that a 'Mark Henry' was an efficient little hoover!
Now I do see the connection!
Mark can have 6ft2 from me and a super-sized bottle of orange lucozade!
berta said on 7/Jul/17
I THINK THE LISTING IS FINE. there is a photo of him and roman reighs face to face and roman looks 1 cm taller. that makes henry at best 188 cm. i think this guy is hard to guess his height. he can look 186,5-189. my guess these days is that he is almost 188. could be just under it. but peak was maybe just over it. he is 46 very owerweight and lifts heavy and do wresting. this guy have probably lost 1 cm.
Realist said on 7/Jul/17
He is huge a 66 inch chest mine is only 39 inch waist like 33 inches 5"10 175 I feel like a stick compared to him.
Sammy Derrick said on 7/Jul/17
He's a big guy...6'2(188cm) is reasonable.22-inch neck, 48-inch waist, 66-inch chest.
Zahid said on 7/Jul/17
@juggernaut: Henry has thicker boots in that picture compared to Batista.
juggernaut said on 7/Jul/17
I think this is the perfect height for Mark henry, but i gotta believe he is a bit above 6'2'..looked the same as Batista in that pic below..i think he did claim 6'3' and a half in a table for 3 episode w Show and Kane some months ago..
Danimal said on 7/Jul/17
There's a recent pic of World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall with Mark Henry and Eddie's a fraction shorter than Mark. What's crazy is that Eddie is listed as 6'3", when in reality he's closer to 6'1" at best.
BlueHead said on 7/Jul/17
Yeah , it seems accurate , pretty tall guy , and great wrestler.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 6/Jul/17
Looks a solid 6'2" but wears very thick boots so 6'1.5" is fine.
ma said on 6/Jul/17
Agree on this listing. Someone could even argue 187 cm today, since he lifted heavy weights and he has in wrestling monster boots
aknawkneemoose said on 6/Jul/17
i hope he doesn't wear a 16 lool i am 189 and wear about a 10.5!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/17
Nice add, Rob.

He's been listed from 6ft1 up to 6ft4 by various sources. Underbilled by WWE (surprising) and overbilled by international sporting events including the Olympics (even more surprising). 6ft2 is suitable middle ground, you could probably argue a bit above or below that really. Men his size are hard to gauge though
MJKoP said on 6/Jul/17
I wouldn't necessarily go with the lower measurement since he was only 21 at the time. 412.5 lbs with just 18.9% body fat shows he still could've been physically maturing four years earlier, since his measurements were largely the same(waist remained identical), yet a good 50 lbs lighter.
5ft10guy said on 6/Jul/17
Ah are we talking peak heights?Because he is am olympian lifter who has been listed as 6ft3 eversince I was a kid.So th 6ft2 may be wrong unless we talking about peak heights.
Zahid said on 6/Jul/17
Good guess Rob! I would also stick with 6'2". He is fractionally shorter than Batista: Click Here
Editor Rob: Henry can look a variety of heights, sometimes under 6ft 2, even can at times look over it...
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/17
"He weighs 412 1/2 pounds with only 18.9 percent body fat"."

BS, no way is he only 18.9 % BF!!!
