Yeah, because at least when 7'6" Giant Gonzalez was inflated to 8ft, he was actually a real legit giant, and his height was his biggest selling point. There's no logical reason at all to bill a 6'2" wrestler at 6'8" though, because 6'2" isn't gigantic by any means.

the WWE is well known for super boosts but generally more for giants,I mean it's not like everybody is able to guess a 7'7 from a nearly 8' but for most dudes it's more between 1 and 3".Now 6" boost? well,that's a huge exgeration.What's shocking however is more this guy's claim.Nearly 3" boost is outrageous,it could be embarassing if he met Howard Stern.Obviously,he looks tall,but nothing exceptional really,Stern on the other hand definitely stands out with almost everybody

Giants could get away with a bigger listing like Andre the giant 7'5 at 7'0 Giant Gonzalez 'nearly 8'0' at 7'7 but their billed heights of 5" extra still arent as exaggerated as this man

A 6-2 guy listed at 6-8

You wouldn't think the WWE would go to those extreme lengths
Westbound on Olympic said on 12/Sep/21
Has to be the worse wwe billing. 6-8 is utterly insane. 6-2.5
SeanF95 said on 10/Sep/21
With a huge inflation like that, I'd be too embarrassed to stand up and go about in public, even the 6'5 claim I'd feel uncomfortable to say in person, unless it was to a child!
Andy5'93/4 said on 10/Jan/21
Ridiculous. A guy I have at 187CM being billed over half a foot taller than that
Andy5'93/4 said on 5/Dec/20
Rob he is the record holder right? He beats out Aaron carters 6’1 claim by being billed as 6’8! Thats crazy you’d be a solid 6’2! And i’d be a weak 6’4
Editor Rob
it's certainly one of the biggest wrestling inflations I've seen...

@ Dave Mills
Have a look on the wwe website, he is right now listed 6'8
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/20
What's half a foot between friends? Or even a modest 2 and 3/4 inches? I think that even before I came to Celebheights, I'd have been suspicious if I'd met someone boasting such a height faux pas!


6ft2. His promoters have forfeited any chance of poor Oleg getting his quarter inch from yours truly! 😝🖕

* I thought Oleg was a merecats' name. 🤷‍♀️
Dave Mills said on 2/Dec/20
Dear all, I don't think Oleg was ever billed as 6'8 tal actually he was billed as 6'6 which still us quiet the exaggeration but good footwear could make him look 6'4-6'5 range so pretty close to 6'6 .
Nik Ashton said on 1/Dec/20
The WWE were half a foot too high!
Andy5'93/4 said on 1/Dec/20
How on earth did they get away with a 6’8 billing? I wouldn’t go over 6’2 for him thats crazy.
6'3 Julian said on 6/Sep/20
I guess they were trying to push Snitsky as the next Kane, they overbilled him by loads too
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Sep/20
Yeah, definitely. Imagine how ridiculous it would sound if one of the commentators describes Randy Orton as 7 feet tall.
6'3 Julian said on 4/Sep/20
@Christian I think the Snitsky one is worse. If you have a 6’6-7 guy you can make him 6’8-9 in lifts, close enough to 7’0 for most. But 6’4?
6'3 Julian said on 3/Sep/20
I think with a 6’6-7 guy, stick him in lifts and he’s 6’9, that’s basically 7 foot to most people. How do you pass off a 6’4 guy as 7’?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Sep/20
Strowman and Erick Rowan were both described as 7 footers a few times on commentary, as well. But at least those two are in the 6'6" range. Kane still gets officially billed as 7'0" to this day, despite being barely 6'6"-6'7".
6'3 Julian said on 2/Sep/20
If you think 6’2 guys being billed 6’8 is bad, I’ve heard 6’4 Snitsky get called 7 foot!
Gobgghbfffcnkj said on 22/Jul/20
Maybe he’s a little bit taller than Rob says?
TheBat said on 1/Mar/20
How does a 6'2.25" wrestler get billed at 6'8"?! Lol it's mindbogglingly bad.
Xpac99 said on 30/Oct/19
Considering the difference of footwear in that moment, it’s hard to believe he was taller than 6ft2

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Jul/18

Don't forget Hulk Hogan who was billed 6'8" in the 80's despite being barely over 6'5" (although listed 6'6" by Rob). I can't think of any wrestlers besides Billy Gunn who were underlisted.
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jul/18
@ Danimal - 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪 Here are some more biscuits for the taking!

🍰 He might also be partial to taking the (last piece of) cake!

To all:-

⭐️ It does make me wonder, though, whether these wrestlers are under pressure to exaggerate their height and, if they refuse to do so, are they considered spoilsports by their promoters?

Surely it can't be something they relish doing! Would you? The truth always has a way of creeping out sooner or later...
YL07 said on 4/Jul/18
@James B No that is kind of the WWE's secret formula to make their guys sound big on TV. Kane was listed as 7' but Rob estimated him to be about 6'7.5", Andre the Giant listed as 7'4" or 7'5" but he may be estimated to be closer to 7' for his prime, Giant Gonzales was listed as 8' but in reality was estimated to be more around the 7'6"-7'7" area, Batista was listed as 6'6" but he estimated him to be roughly 6'3", Rey Mysterio was listed as 5'6" but when Rob met him in person he looked more 5'2" than 5'6" and that was what he guessed before he seen him in person, Alberto del Rio who Rob also seen in person who was listed at 6'5" or 6'6" by the WWE, to him he looked to be more closer to 6'2" than 6'5", Chyna was listed as 6' tall but was estimated to be about 5'9", Kurt Angle was listed as 6'2" one time in the WWE but he himself claims he is 5'10", Chris Jericho is listed as 6' (6'1" at one time), and he was estimated to be about 5'9.5" and the list goes on. It's a business, it's been that kind of thing for a really long time. Having big guys in the wrestling business was kind of a freak show strategy and exaggerating their sizes will make them even more interesting (Vince probably thought). They were a lot of legitimate big guys that came in the ring and often times WWE will claim them to be taller than they actually are, even the smaller ones (even some of the weights of the wrestlers might as well be exaggerated). But surprisingly, that's not always the case. Some wrestlers listings may have been there actual height, and in some rare cases some wrestlers may have been underlisted. It just all depends. Lots of professional wrestling corporations besides WWE has been using that same kind of strategy as well. WWE may not have started it, but i have no clue where it started from. But either way, that's business.

@Yoda Well to be fair, he didn't say he was 6'8", the WWE did. But he did say he was 6'5" which seems also pretty delusional as it is. He is a tall guy, but not that tall from what I've seen.That's basically the equivalent of a 5'9" guy claiming to be almost 6 feet tall or 6ft if he/she wants to round up. Which does sound pretty delusional already.

BURN IT DOWWWWWN! said on 30/Jun/18
Probably the most overbilled superstar in history I can remember. I thought the 4 inch overbillings were bad but this takes the biscuit! 😆

British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith was a legit 5'9" guy who was once billed as high as 6'3" in the 90's.
Hogan who is down to 6'2" is still billed as 6'7"
Nik said on 4/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Wouldn't I just? They'd be snatched off him that quick and I'll tell you, he wouldn't get 'em back! Ha ha!
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jul/18
@ Nik - I'd take two-and-a-half of his inches as soon as look at him! 😉👍
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Jul/18

Not true. He was always billed 6'6". 7'0" was probably just some rumor.
Zahid said on 3/Jul/18
Slightly shorter than the Rock: Click Here
Nik said on 3/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I know! He's over 6'2" and he still has to give himself extra inches that aren't his! Why can't he hand them out to people who are more appreciative of them! - And more in need of them! The WWE are even prepared to give him half a foot! 😂😂😂😂😂😂!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jul/18
@ Nik - I wouldn't blame him if he was a bit of a Prudius about his height if he was my size, but someone who's a strong 6ft2 has no reason to be! 🙊
Zampo said on 3/Jul/18
Does Randy Orton have a footwear advantage in the above photo?
Editor Rob
Hard to tell if there is a fraction more.
Yoda said on 3/Jul/18
That's like a 5'9 claiming 6'3! I thought I was the only one who noticed the ridiculous billing.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Jul/18
Him claiming 6'5" is bad enough, but getting billed 6'8" is mind boggling. Even The Rock was never billed higher than 6'5".
Jim hoppa said on 2/Jul/18
Totally B/S. 6-2" imo.
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/18
@ James B - I reckon they were on quite a lot of the stuff to think they'd get away with THAT!
Nik said on 2/Jul/18
Well, if he is down as 6'8" then we should all add 6 inches to our height! Adding nearly three inches is ridiculous enough, but 6!

Rob is usually within a quarter of an inch, and often bang on! Oleg can have 6'2.25"!
viper said on 2/Jul/18
6-3 Titus O'Neil was billed at 7-0
Dude 173cm said on 1/Jul/18
I remember Kozlov listed as 6'7 by WWE , and 6'6 by Google . I could believe 6'4 , no more.
YL07 said on 1/Jul/18
When I was watching back, I knew he was definitely around the 6'2" area. It is definitely insane for him to claim 6'5" when he's nowhere even near that tall. I remember WWE listing him to be 6'6" which was crazy enough, but I never knew they listed him as 6'8" once. That is insane. That's like Andre the Giant level there when they inflated his height up to 7'5" at Wrestlemania 3, after he had spine surgery. We all know he was about 6'10"-6'11" at Wrestlemania 3.
James B 171.5cm said on 1/Jul/18
Were they on crack when they gave him the 6'8 billing?
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Jul/18
Isn't there a meerkat called Oleg?

⭐️ For those of you who don't live in Britain, there are some funny little meerkat characters on our televisions, originally made famous through a commercial for the 'Compare the Market' insurers. They became so popular that the company offered stuffed toy meerkats free for people who take out insurance policies with them. Mine cost a fiver and came from a charity shop. He is fully clothed, you know! 😁
miko said on 1/Jul/18
He was a weird one as he was way overbilled in WWE, didnt think he was quite this short though. Maybe a little extra in the boots gave him a 6'3 look during his time in WWE.

Rock (in good posture for once) looks to have height on him.

I wish they had him face off with real 6'8 guys just to show how ridiculous the billing is.
184guy2 said on 30/Jun/18
Terrible billing
But I can see him near 6'3 with Randy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/18
I actually would have guessed at least 6ft3!
Mel said on 30/Jun/18
Solid 6’2 for sure.
lee168cm said on 30/Jun/18
He claimed a full 3 inches taller than he is? Wow I can understand someone like Corey feldman doing that but an already tall guy claiming even taller. Nor happy to be 6ft 2? Really. Well you can see 6ft 4 Randy has almost 2 inches taller so he clearly isn't fooling anyone
Mack said on 30/Jun/18
6ft8? he looks shorter than randy orton and they dont even give him that.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/18
How the heck can someone think he can exaggerate a person's height by a huge near to 6"? That's ludicrous! It's bad enough that he tries to pass himself off as 6ft5!

I will stick with Rob's 6ft2.25. FAR more realistic!
Easterwood 6'3 said on 30/Jun/18
You think they inflated six inches? That seems excessive, even for the wwe.
Editor Rob
I think 5 inch inflation is a lot for the WWE, but in this guys case it looks at least 5 inches inflation.
Vlad_Fyodorov said on 30/Jun/18
Rob, is 6'2.5 possible?
Editor Rob
Would be the highest I'd estimate him. I think 6ft 2-2.5, anywhere amidst that range is possible.
Vlad_Fyodorov said on 30/Jun/18
6'8? WTF WWE????????????????????????????????????????
