he have looke at worst 196,5 and at best 198cm I think 197 ore couple mm over at peak.

@alen i can agree, him and Manganiello looks simillar
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 8/Jan/22
For peak i think he would measured above 197 more often than 196, today maybe just flat 6'5, since there's just a little difference between him and weak 6'5 Joe Manganiello, who's around 195-195,3 cm

Peak: 6ft 5 ¾ (197.5 cm)

Current: 6ft 5 (195.6 cm)
Canson said on 26/Oct/21
I’m surprised they listed him 196 in his prime. He looks every bit of a peak 6’5.5” like he’s listed here
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 15/Apr/21
He was a beast in his bodybuilding years due to his very large height, build and great proportions. Also, in the movie Connan he looked like a real barbarian !

I wouldn't be surprised if he measured close to 198 cm in his younger years and around 196 cm by now in his sixties.

Peak - 198 cm
Current - 196 cm
Hong said on 9/Apr/21
Click Here I don't think he's still 6ft5.5,here he is in 2015 with 85 year old Clint Eastwood who was looking 6ft flat at that age,Mueller looks about 4 inches taller.
Canson said on 11/Mar/21
He had 1.25 or 1.5” on Lundgren but Dolph was never below 6’4 in his prime and possibly up to what Rob lists him
Covvvid1984. said on 23/Feb/21
2” Lundgren. 6-5.5 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Feb/21
Rob, maybe 6ft5 now?

That or just over. I don’t think he’s under it
Canson said on 4/Dec/20
@Recapa: that’s about what he was peak. Around 197
recapa said on 2/Dec/20
6ft5 5/8 peak, 6ft5 1/4 today. he was at least 197cm peak .and not under 196cm today.
Big King said on 21/Nov/20
Rob, is there a possibility to ad 6'5.5" as Ralf's peak height? A strong 6'5" is what he stands nowadays but I'm sure that he was very close to 6'6" in his younger days.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
Hyper said on 5/Oct/20

@Rampage and @Canson

I could see a prime Ralf measuring similar to Anthony Joshua. He would edge Bo out but I don’t think it’s much. Probably 1/8th at most. Bo’s listing of 6’5.5” is fine. When dealing with 1/8ths or even less, it’s way too close at that point.

I also think Ralf and Bo would definitely edge out the 6’7” claiming Brock O’Hurn. Ralf being the tallest, Bo being close second, and Brock being just under them. LOL!

Well said! I would say OHurn may come out around 196cm. He has a shot at 6’5.25 but also 6’5” flat
Hyper said on 7/Oct/20
Rob, how likely is something like 6’5 5/8” for Ralf, if not maybe 6’5.75”?

Canson said on 4/Oct/20
@Rampage: it may have been close. Moeller could look as legit as it gets while Bo has a chance at 6’5 3/8 perhaps

@Dream: interesting question! I would say Moeller. As for Rob, I never knew that he gave Ralf the edge
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/20
Moeller in his prime was a solid 197cm than Bo...
Hyper said on 14/Sep/20
@Christian 6'5 3/8" @Canson @Rob

I wonder who's more lanky, in terms of proportions (not muscle). Bo or Ralf.

I know Rob gave a peak Ralf an edge over Bo Burnham though, when measured.
Canson said on 31/Aug/20
@Christian: nah I didn’t mean lanky In terms of his build (muscle). I meant proportionately. Long legs or maybe very proportionate for a 6’5-6’6” range guy
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Aug/20
I wouldn't call Moeller of all people lanky though. He's a jacked bodybuilder. Someone like Bo Burnham fits that description a lot more.
Canson said on 27/Aug/20
@Hanov: he’s very lanky which is why he gives that impression. 6’5.5” is very tall but I wouldn’t classify it as giant. I would put a guy an inch taller as extremely tall. Moeller looks not to have lost much height even today. Still looks a very comfortable 6’5” range maybe strong 6’5” for the most part
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 25/Jun/20
Nothing short of 196 today.
Can most likely spread up to 197 still when standing as tall as possible

Probably a strong 197/197,5 in his prime maybe even 198.
Dream said on 7/Apr/20
Rob, curiosity sake, based on the people you've met and the evidence of other measured athletes, who would you give the edge to, A Peak Ralf Moeller or Bo Burnham?
Editor Rob
I'd give Ralf an edge if measured.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Mar/20
Since he claim 6'5 1/4 in 2018 then he could be 6'5 a low and an easy 6'5 1/2 peak height.
Canson said on 27/Sep/19
If he’s listing himself 196 instead of 197 today he probably has lost height. Peak is pretty clear over 6’5”. How much is debatable as he can look 197-198 sometimes or 196-197 more frequently. Maybe a candidate for 6’5.5 peak and current 6’5.25, Rob?
Canson said on 14/Sep/19
Big King said on 27/Jul/19
Rob, isn't there a possibility to downgrade Moeller's height to 6ft 5.25in? He has already claimed his height as 196cm nowadays several times. I don't think that he is lying about his height. He is at least an inch shorter than 6ft 6in Wladimir Klitschko and Vitali Klitschko looks at least 3 inches taller than Moeller.
Editor Rob
I'm not so sure on giving 1/4 inch peak/current, but when it gets to half inch I usually

I doubt that he’s an inch shorter than Wlad. Wlad is not 6’6” he’s 6’5” range as he admitted. Ralf May be slightly taller (1/4-1/2” tops) or up to 1/4” shorter. Wouldn’t surprise me if the two are almost identical in height

Rob, so if you already mentioned thatMoeller can be near 6'5" today, so why don't you downgrade his height to 6'5" so that we all feel satisfied on this page?
Editor Rob
He could have lost 1/4 maybe 1/2
Canson said on 18/Jul/19
@Rising: I agree probably 197 peak and 196 now
K.A 188 said on 17/Jul/19
Maybe 197 peak
AND 195.6 current.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/Jul/19
@tree Click Here Ground not leveled on Ralf towards Wladimir side standing. Vitali holds the higher ground advantage. Vitali look max 6'6 1/2 with 6'9 Lamar Odom Click Here they describe out Lamar Odom NBA listing as 6'10, Odom height without shoes real height is 6'9.
Click Here At least 6cm between them

Rising174cm said on 14/Apr/19
@Canson: I'd personally be shocked if he didn't juice. Not taking anything away from Ralf since he clearly put in a tremendous amount of work and it's very difficult to have a physique like his at 6'4", much less over 6'5". I think we can say he was likely right around 197 peak and isn't more than 196 cm today. Although, he didn't look taller than 196 back in 2003 in that gym video with 193 cm Dolph: Click Here Click Here Click Here Would Ralf have lost anything by 2003? It'd be fairly likely for a 44 year old 6'5"+ bodybuilder, but considering Dolph is over a year older and appeared to have lost no more than a tiny fraction by that point, if that yet has since lost a massive amount of height while Ralf has maintained his height unusually well for a now 60 year old bodybuilder or even any 6'5"+ man, I'd guess Ralf was still at his peak in 2003. I wish that back to back pic of Ralf and Lou Ferrigno had been taken on solid ground because I'd love to see the difference between them even back in the 90's.

But aside from guessing 197 peak and 196 current, I'd also say the range for Ralf's peak height would have to be 196 cm minimum and 197 max.
Johan 185 cm said on 12/Apr/19
197 CM back in the 90's even but today he has lost a bit and even claims 196 cm. I agree with the other posters he is maybe 6'5" on the nose today.
Editor Rob
In publicity material for Cyborg Rolf was described at a whopping 6 feet 9 inches!
berta said on 9/Mar/19
he claimed 196 and 197. I have a feeling he could be 196,5 guy? But he did really look no less than 197 peak. There is something in the way his back looks that make me believe he have lost a fraction by now. But he never looks les than 196 still and have a little worse posture, he can still be at peak.
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
@Rob: maybe at his peak the 6’5.5 listing fits but today he could probably get 6’5.25. I agree with 184guy
Canson said on 28/Jan/19
@Rising: he looks naturally built too. Doesn’t look as if he juiced. Perhaps 196.5-197 peak and today 196
184guy2 said on 28/Jan/19
Don't you think you could add a peak and current ?
Editor Rob
He might have lost 1/4 to 1/2. He holds up still pretty well with Hafthor, because I don't think Ralf has the camera advantage - it's closer to Hafthor there.
ManKo said on 27/Jan/19
He recently claimed 196cm, here with the "Mountain"

Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Jan/19
@Rob: That makes sense. Both in the 10"+ head range for sure, but if Dolph's is 10.25" then Ralf's probably wouldn't be more than 10.4". @Canson: Yeah, I think 196.5 to 197 peak is as likely as anything. Probably not above 196 today, though.
Canson said on 10/Jan/19
I think at his peak that he would edge out Rory McCann
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
@Rising: he’s lanky I’ll say that. He may just be 6’5” today after seeing more but I agree that a peak 197 or at least 196.5-197 looked right
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Jan/19
Does Ralf have an even bigger head than Dolph? Interestingly, here's a 2003 video of them in the gym that I posted a while back on Dolph's page: Click Here There's a timestamp, but Ralf first appears around 1:12, 3:05 should be of interest and they stand together for about 40 seconds from 4:45 on. I guess Dolph must have still been 193 cm in 2003, but I'd have guessed Ralf more 2-3 cm taller in that video rather than 4. Granted, I tend to guess Ralf about 197 cm peak and 196 today, but I suppose he could have been 196 in '03.
Editor Rob
Ralf has a fairly big head, but I'm not sure it's really much longer than Dolph's, maybe a few mm or so.
Canson said on 19/Dec/18
@Dream: I think any derivative of a weak 6’6” if we want to include 6’5.5 in that mix and not going under it. The worst I could buy is 6’5 3/8 at his low on the day which may be strong 6’5 but that’s worst case. An easy 6’6” out of bed. In the Arnold pic he still looks somewhere between 196-197 likely at the mid to upper part of range. To me, he’s the among the most proper looking guys in this range that Rob has listed on this site. Still at least solid 6’5 today if not a bit over perhaps
berta said on 19/Dec/18
Dream i think he could have been fraction over this rather than under. What do you guys think his head size is? He have the same size as Hogan. Bigger head than dolph. I think he could have 27 cm or 3 mm over. I have 27 ore just over and his head looks atleast the same.
Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Dream: I could buy either for him at his peak. Could even buy 6’5.5. I
Dream(5'9.5") said on 15/Dec/18
Rob, which one would you say is slightly more arguable at peak for Big Ralf, 6’5.625” or 6’5.375”?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/18
He may have been 6ft6 or very close to it. Today I still think he can clear 6ft5
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
I think he was 197ish peak and still 196 range today worst case.
vaux said on 10/Nov/18
Solid 6'5 at least. Clearly very tall.
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Dream: Christian is secure with his height! He wouldn’t see any disrespect. Moeller could be a few mm taller or around the same at his peak. However, I doubt he was shorter at his peak. I’ll say that much
Canson said on 24/Sep/18
@Dream: agreed he would prob edge Christian
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/Sep/18

To tell you the truth, I think a peak Moeller would probably be a mm taller than @Christian. (No disrespect to @Christian!) I would be beyond shock if Moeller fell under 6’5” by any means at peak. He probably would edge out Wladimir at his prime.
Canson said on 4/Jun/18
@Dream: maybe 2cm peak. He looks like Sasha Vujecic did next to him most likely
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Jun/18
He'd be taller than Kobe Bryant.
Canson said on 23/May/18
Peak Height at a low wouldn’t be less than maybe 196.5cm but perhaps 196.75 or so. No worse than a super strong 6’5 perhaps even cracks a weak 6’6”
Canson said on 11/Mar/18
I’ve never seen a 6’8” listing. 6’6 or 6’7 I think Josh but Moeller himself claimed 6’6”. I think Rob has his peak height nailed. He was 6’5 1/2 at least then
Joah said on 9/Mar/18
As listed 6 5 or .5 looks nothing like 6 8.
berta said on 9/Jan/18
i think peak was littel fraction over this. like 197,3 and today 196 flat ore couple mm over
Barry Fl said on 9/Jan/18
I think Ralf's keeping his height very well for such a tall fellow. I see some pictures of him now and would swear he's getting taller (probably just because everyone around him is shrinking).
VicLions said on 16/Dec/17
Yeah I do believe Ralf is honest about his 197 cm. He does look huge in the Gladiator, and even beside a guy like a Dolph Lundgren he stills looks big. So if Ralf is 197 cm he is about the same heights as Chuck Connors and close to Anthony Joshua and Clint Walker
Canson said on 4/Dec/17
Seeing how Max met him in person and said they looked each other in the eyes if Max is 6’5.5 I still can’t see Moeller as less than maybe 6’5.25 or a solid 196 at worst if Max was slightly off. Ones eye level could’ve been slightly higher than the other. 1/4” difference is not really noticeable to anyone and being they had similar shoes no guarantee that they weren’t slightly different
Canson said on 30/Nov/17
Every bit of 197cm in his peak. May still be today but not less than 196-196.5 today
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 12/Nov/17
Rob, where would a 6'0.75" person stand at compared to Moeller?
Editor Rob
not much above his eye range
Canson said on 28/Oct/17
@VC: that’s exactly what people do exaggerate how tall very tall people are. It’s usually to try to feel better about themselves
VC said on 26/Oct/17
In my view, Ralf is a humble giant because his claim being 197 cm is true thus he is a genuine colossus. However, fans can't measure tall actors with a ruler at any given time or day so everything is just perspective or opinion so his height can be exaggerated between 6'6 - 6'8 with shoes easily from an average height guy.
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
Peak height looks right he prob was near 6’6”. Prob 197 range.

agree canson i think ferringo maybe was closer to 192 than 191 but the 193 listing and prevously 194 was way to muthc. Lou looks like my 188 cm father now so i dont really think he can be taller than 189,5 at most for the moment
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@berta: I see him at 197 peak but not Lou he was 6'3 maybe 6'3.25 peak
berta said on 27/Mar/17
he cant really be shorter than the listing if ferrigno really was 6 oot 4 because in that herculses series from like 20 years ago he was barely 2 inches taller than lou

you gotta admit, he looks taller and bigger than lundgren in universal soldier! And that was almost impossible back in 1992. But,in clear fist fight Dolph would destroy Moeller.

berta said on 24/Nov/16
he looks easy 3 cm taller than dolph in photos but i think dolph was maybe only 193 peak. he could very often look 198 but i think 197 is a good listing . he was a strong 197 guy i think like 197,3 in the late afternoon ore someting. these days he could be couple mm shorter but still look strong 6,5 range so its just a matter of 0,5 cm
S.J.H said on 19/Oct/16
He doesn't look 6'5 nowadays. Peak 6'5 and claim 6'6 i believe. Possibly 6'4.5 claim w shoe @ 6'5.5 now
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
At worst prime he's a very strong 6'5 that easily scratched the 6'6 mark out of bed. Where he fell in afternoon is the question. For Under 6'5.5 strong 6'5, 6'5.5 or more weak 6'6 which is also a good possibility that we can't rule out.

6ft6 is possible in his prime. I would go w/h James's 6ft5¾ figure. He really did look that big in the 80's-90's. Today he's still a strong 6ft5 guy bare minimum.

This guy had a better physique though. Heck he entered Mr. O in 1988. (Should have placed higher, IMO).

Moeller was a professional bodybuilder that's why. Dolph wasn't, and a
karateka who simply lifted weights to bulk up for Rocky and Masters of the Universe.

That's the point and appeal of Dolph though, that he's wooden. His one liners are delivered in a wonderfully wooden fashion, that's what makes him more badass!

Personally, I always preferred watching this guy to Dolph Lundgren. He's a little less wooden

He is dropping height
But he still taller tjan Joe for 2 cm
Maybe in the total for 4cm
I don't know the footwear of that day but,Joe is a weak 6ft 5 so Ralf would be 6ft 6

He's hunched in that picture with Manganiello.
He might still edge him.

He's slouching in the Joe/Arnie pic, also look at the height difference in that photo with Arnie. In most others he looks WAY taller!!
Darth Nihilus said on 24/Apr/15
Rob, a downgrade for Ralf's height is needed. Ralf stated his height as 196cm in a German TV show and also his official website says 196cm. That would put Ralf to 6'5.25" so please downgrade his height for 1/4 inch.

Ralf Moeller stated his height as 196cm on a German TV show and he does look that tall. Let alone 6'5 1/2". A downgrade for a half inch is needed.

I think that's what he's been measured at currently, unlike Arnie hasn't lost much. It's obvious he got measured at 197 when bodybuilding, that would have been barefoot. Out of bed peak this guy could have hit 199cm. In the 90s he could look an easy 6'6. Had to have been 197.

Rob do you think there is a decent chance he was around 6'6 in his 20's? Today he still looks 6'5.5 in his 50's.
Editor Rob
he could have looked it.

I saw him and Dolph Lundgren in Universal Solder set,I'm about 6'5'' and he was 1in taller than me and Dolph was 0.5 in shorther than me.Also Tiny Lister Jr. was exactly same height as Moeller.

Moleer 198
Lister Jr. 198
Lundgren 194

Trust me.

Why should we trust you more than Moeller himself who claimed 1,97m when younger and 1,96m today/recent years.
Tiny Lister claimed 6´5" while wrestling Hogan in 1989 so he isn´t 6´6" too.

In Universal Soldier it´s more like

Möller 197
Lister Jr. 196
Lundgren 193

I agree with 6'5.5" for Ralf. I am 6'5.5" and met him once in Los Angeles. We both had similar footwear and looked each other square in the eye. I am a little heavier build than Ralf as I do Powerlifting as opposed to Bodybuilding that he does. Very friendly guy, we had a nice conversation about Working Out and Motorcycles. We spoke together in English and German.

More 6ft5.5-6ft6 range peak. I doubt he's under 6ft5 even today.

He looks an inch shorter than Wladimir Klitschko in a picture they took in Germany, a 6'5 flat for Ralph is a possibility perhaps?

Klitschko is closer to the camera and Ralf has a bad posture.
Jamesy said on 1/Feb/13
I think next too the rock this guy looked genuinely 6'6.... Although he did look barely taller than Dolph lundgren. Also he might stand signifigantly taller depending on time of day?

He might have lost a cm, but he looks near 6'6" next to Arnie. He certainly looked close to it at peak.

When you see Moeller, Arnie and Arnie supposed 6'4.5" bodyguard (the three are frequently seen together out and about) Moeller usually looks about 6 ft 6.
Shaun said on 10/Sep/12
Yeah he could look near 6 ft 7 in the 90s but a legit 6 '5.5" will usually look like that. Danimal I think thought Tim Robbins was near 6 ft 7 in his prime and I'm pretty sure Moeller is taller than Robbins.

at first i thought he was 6'4. the more i see him he look taller than 6'4. so maybe 6'5
Supermanfan380 said on 3/Dec/11
If Ralph is only 6'5" that is strong evidence that a lot of actors he has worked with are much shorter than claimed because Ralph towers over just about everyone he has ever been on screen with.
LAN Jiao said on 26/Oct/11
in my opinion moeller is the biggest 6'5 claim actor, most 6'5 claimer are rounded up or add on shoe at 6'3.5-6'4.5 range and very few were 6'4.75 unlike moeller he looks a big 6'5(195.58), estimate he can be through from noon night at 195.5-196.2cm. min flat 6'5 and 197cm granted in morning.
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
Shuan, Wladimir is 6'6 measured not 6'6.5 . moeller is an inch under means right at 6'5(195.58) he is nothing over 6'5 min. Max 6'5.75 morning.

I think 197cm is ok, 198 isn't impossible maybe before mid-day he was that mark or near it.
leo said on 14/Sep/11
he looks 6ft 7 sometimes. but in all fairness, i think he is 6ft 6 peak because he looks 1 or 2 inches taller than lour ferrigno
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/11

Editor Rob
I don't know if he's shrunk much at all, possibly a little bit.
Markus said on 3/Jun/11
Moeller is 6' 5.5" tall, I say this because he stood next to a very popular German politician, Zu Guttenberg, who stands 6 feet tall flat, and it looks like Moeller was about 5.5 inches taller than Zu Guttenberg. Zu Guttenberg was photographed with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who claims he was 6'2", but was probably 6'1" peak and now in his old age is 6 feet flat.

He could claim 6 ft 6 and most people would believe him if they saw him I'm sure. He certainly looked 6'6" next to Dolph.
Terminorr said on 26/Mar/11
Moeller had to lie about his height to keep the other body builders sweet. I've seen him down as 6'8 just to make Ferrigno's height believable.
Donkey said on 23/Nov/10
Moeller was on Gladiator DVD extras stating he is 6'6" which threw me a little as a body builder will always know what measurements they are. Lou has always been posted as 6'5" and Ralph is a lot taller. He was always shown out as 6'10" there is a famous picture of a few of the 'faces' from Golds gym on the rear fire escape and he is level heads with Lou even though Lou is standing on the next step up. Arnold is 6'1" all day see the height difference between him and Dwayne Johnson in Welcome to the Jungle.
Moeller's height is also highlighted again with Dolph Lundgren as the 6'6" yard stick when they are in Universal Soldier. Tech checks their cameras and looks into Dolphs lens in the line up and then has to stretch to see into Ralphs. he even comments ' I need a ladder for this one.' and when Jean Claude appears ' yeah more my size'
Big King said on 8/Jul/09
I changed my mind about Moeller's height. Rob, why don't you give Moeller 6'5"? His height is written as 196cm (6'5") on his official website and even if he claimed 197cm, he looks no more than 6'5". Dolph Lundgren also claimed 6'5.5" but does not look that tall.
Doug said on 28/Jun/09
Funny thing Moeller recently appeard in a German film called Far Cry with Craig Fairbrass (6'3"), remember the British baddie in Cliffhanger who emulated taking football kicks at the end of the film? I've always thought these two men look very similar, facially and in terms of stature.
Big King said on 14/Jun/09
And I would think twice if Moeller is really 6'5" flat because he already had 3.5" on Becker on many pics so I'm sure that Moeller is a strong 6'5.5" guy.
Big King said on 14/Jun/09
And on the pic with Becker, Moeller looks a legit 6'6.5".
Big King said on 7/Jun/09
I wonder what shoe size Moeller does wear. He has really big feet.
Big King said on 3/Jun/09
Well, sometimes Moeller looks only 2 inches taller than Becker and on the first pic from Anonymous, it seems that Moeller has 4 inches on Becker. Well but I could go with a weak 6'6" for Moeller now. 197cm sounds right for him.
Anonymous said on 2/Jun/09
Moeller is standing behind Klitchko diminishing his stature,that Boris pick is heavily favouring Becker,from a different perspective things change. Click Here Click Here 6'5 min 6'6 max.
Big King said on 27/May/09
His 197cm and 196cm claimings give the clearance that Moeller is 6'5.5" in the morning and 6'5" later.
Big King said on 25/May/09
Veltins, you are wrong because Moeller has several inches on Dolph Lundgren who is clearly above 6'3". Arnold can only be over 6'0" if he already got measured 6'1.5", so taht would make Moeller a strong 6'5". I only have the feeling that Klitschko is at least an inch above 6'6" because he doesn't look really shorter than his brother Vitali who is already at 6'8" on most of his websites. So I think that 6'5.5" for Moeller could be correct while Wladimir Klitschko could be a strong 6'7" and Vitali a strong 6'8".
Veltins said on 23/May/09
@Big King i think moeller is more like 6'3.5. i met wladimir klitschko in germany at burger king and he looks like 6'6 to me. and theres a picture with moeller and arnie and moeller looks max. 3 inches taller than 6 foot arnie.
Big King said on 22/May/09
Are you sure that this is Wladimir Klitschko Click Here

Anyway, it seems that it is Vitali who is standing beside Moeller and he towers 3 inches over Moeller. Rob, any chance that we should give Moeller 6'5"?
Big King said on 20/May/09
After seeing these pics Click Here , I hasitate if Moeller is really 6'5.5" or anything around 6'5" because normally a human with a height of 6'5" appears gigantic very often but here, you can't even tell me that Moeller is a giant but he has 2.5 inches on Boris Becker and that's really strange.
Big King said on 4/May/09
Becker is really not more than 6'3". So Moeller is at least 6'5". So Moeller's 197cm is right but it's really strange why he's at least 2 inches taller than Lundgren. Maybe we should place Lundgren at 6'4"? What do you think, Rob?
Alex says on 4/May/09 said on 4/May/09
That picture with Ralph and Stallone is confused because Stallone looks 14 cm shorter than Ralph and not 20 or 23 cm shorter ,well, i mean that if Stallone is only 5,9 - 175 cm that would make Ralph 6,2 - 188 cm or 6,2.5 - 189 cm and i think that is impossible.Or maybe Stallone is taller than 5,9?
Doug said on 4/May/09
In fact judging by a lot of pictures he looks more like a flat 6'5".
Doug said on 4/May/09
Good find Rony, the picture of him with Boris Becker who is a legit 190cm barefoot makes the 6'7" claims look ridiculous. Compared to Becker he is struggling with 195cm let alone 198cm. I see about a two inch height difference if we cut out Becker's bouffon. 6'5.5" is about right, I agree probably 6'5" by evening. The strange thing is how he looks a lot taller than Dolph Lundgren and how he dwarfs Arnie today by what looks like minimum 6 inches.
Doug said on 4/May/09
Very surprised to see that Moeller is a smoker. I know these action stars like to smoke cigars every now and again but Moeller is a regular cigarette smoker. Surprised to learn that as you'd think he would be very health conscious and ciggies are terrible for your health and will kill you eventually.
Big King said on 3/May/09
Well, Moeller had 2 inches on Dolph Lundgren who claimed his height as 6'5" and that's a little bit confusing. The pic with 6'3" or 190cm Boris Becker proofed that Moeller has exactly 2.5 inches on Becker. So that would bring Moeller at 6'5.5" as he claimed. Sometimes he appears really gigantic but even 6'6" is out of question because Moeller is a strong 6'5" guy.
rony192cm said on 30/Apr/09
He's probably closer to 196cm during most of the day. Not much taller than 190cm Boris Becker Click Here
And def 2cm shorter than Wladimir who is 198cm. So the story of 6'7 is out of the question even at his peak
Big King said on 25/Apr/09
Well, also in the german TVs it has been said that Moeller is almost 2 meters tall. So that would make him look 6'6" or his 197cm claiming can't be that wrong but he looks really huge. He often looks a legit 6'7" tall. If Dolph Lundgren already claimed his height as 6'5" peak than Moeller has to be around 6'7" because Ralf had at least 2 inches over Lundgren.
Doug said on 22/Apr/09
A legit 6'5.5" barefoot will pull off 6'7" in good boots. This guy is gigantic and Dolph even says so!!, makes even Lundgren look smaller than he is. Moeller is the mother of all action stars in terms of enormous size, just when you thought Lundgren was about as huge as it gets, they have to go bigger!! I couldn't believe this guy when I first saw him in Universal Soldier that he was actually bigger than Dolph!
Daley said on 22/Apr/09
I trained at worlds gym for 2 weeks in November 1991, Moeller was 6'6" minimum, more like 6'7". Arnold was at least 1 inch shorter than me (I;m 6'2) and Thornson was around 6'4".
Big King said on 22/Mar/09
ok, Moeller looks too tall for only 6'5.5" but in that case it is possible that he's at least 6'7" and he downgrades his height because he doesn't wanna be over 2 meters tall.
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/09
He can easily look 6'7 but if he states 197 himself , then I guess he is that , cause I can't see any reason why he'd downgrade himself.
Big King said on 13/Mar/09
I looked into some german websites about Moeller's height and he's even noted as 196cm (6'5"). I thought LOL, he's easily over 6'5". I mean, he looks a legit 6'7" but I remembered a photo where he didn't even have four inches on Arnold Schwarzenegger who was 6'2" at his peak in his prime.
Doug said on 11/Mar/09
Moeller had 3 inches on Clint Eastwood in the mid 1990s. Clint was nearer 6'3" by this time although I heard reports by Glenn saying he was still 6'4" in the early 90s, he sure looked it to me in Unforgiven. This would place Moeller at least 6'6" a possible near 6'7". I agree he often looks nearer 6'7" to me he is HUGE can't see 6'8" but he looks nearer 199cm to me a lot of time.
Danimal said on 10/Mar/09
Moeller was described as low as 6'6" and as high as 6'8" in the 1980's in his bodybuilding days.
Doug said on 9/Mar/09
Barefoot 6'5.5" 197, 6'6.5" (199cm) in shoes sounds about right for Moeller. A huge gigantic man. bigger than 99.9% of men. He had around 1.5 inches on even Dolph Lundgren from what I recall. He is a little over 6'6" in shoes for sure, barefoot, I think you have him nailed. A legit 6'5.5" barefoot is borderline giant.
Big King said on 23/Feb/09

I chatted up Ralf on the set of "Beerfest" a few years back. We stood side by side. I am just under 6 foot and he is easily 9 feet tall and must weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 pounds. Okay, I'll be serious. He is at least 6'6" and maybe even 6'8"...Hope this settles it.

Moeller is 6'5 1/2" and Wladimir Klitschko is 6'6 1/2" because in enough websites Wladimir is listed at 6'6 1/2". Wlad is at least one inch taller than Moeller anyway.
Cobra said on 30/Aug/08

Wladimir Klitschko 196 cm?? (Click Here) If Wladimir Klitschko is 196 then Moeller is 187-190. This pic shows a 3-4 inches difference. Look it carefully, wladimir is leaning to Ralph.

The german websites say that Moeller is almost 2 metres. That means he's clearly over 6'5", but a full 6'6" is the question? I'd say 197cm (6'5 1/2") is not downgraded but I would also agree with 6'6" as Moeller's height. Maybe 6'6 1/2" straight out of bed too.

There are also a few people who can't bear their heights so they are downgrading their heights. I know someone who has been over 2 metres tall and he described his height as 6'5". Unbelievable, many tall people are complexors about their height. So I guess, Ralf is one of these who are downgrading their heights. Ralf is 6'7" in my opinion.
Yaspaa said on 25/Jun/08

Ralf looks huge in that pic; Schlierkamp is 6ft1. Sometimes I think Ralf is closer to 6ft8 than 6ft6. I think he is one of those guys who eventually downgraded his height.

pjack , I remember Dolph saying that,I think it was actually an interview with Van Damme who was saying that Dolph phoned him and told how he wasn't overly chuffed that both Ralf and Tiny Lister were taller than him,Van Damme retorted with "what about me I'm the shortest here". Whether this is what you are referring to I don't know.
King said on 5/Jun/08
Moeller is mostly described as 6'6" on the english websites and 197cm on the german websites. 197cm is rounded 6'6". But 6'5 1/2" can also be seen as 197cm but 6'5 1/2" is exactly 196,8cm. So if Ralf claimed his height 197cm then he is a few mm over it. So 6'5 3/4" is Moeller's real height nowadays. When he was younger, he could have been over 6'6" as mentioned.
Yaspaa said on 3/Jun/08
Measure yourself in the morning then at night and half the two measurements and thats your average height. This morning height thing is as bogus as giving height wearing shoes. 6'6 for Ralf then and now.
pjack said on 1/Jun/08
I remember back in 1992 when Universal Soiler was made Dolph L joked he wasnt happy that Ralph was taller than him. Dolph was 6foot 5 then and when you watch the entire movie there is a 2inch diference.That puts Ralph at 6foot 7,the concensus in the bodybuilding mags was 6foot 8 and i believe he was not that far off it.
pjack said on 1/Jun/08
At 6foot 7 it would limit being a leading man and scale down acting roles,id agree with razor hes delibrately downgraded his height.In the late eighties it was common knowledge he was at least 6foot 7,prehaps age has taken at inch off.
RAZOR said on 27/May/08
And Cobra, if Ralf was 198cm in the morning then he is that tall.

Oh and Rob, his name is mostly written as Ralf Moeller.

I'm sure that Moeller has downgraded his height. I mean, he is at least 6'6".

And 197cm is 6'5 3/4" and not 6'5 1/2".
RAZOR said on 18/May/08
I also think that Moeller's height is almost 6'7". 197cm and 196cm are totally undermeasured.

close to 2 inches taller than lundgren in universal soldier and looked 2 inches taller than lou ferrigno in 1987. Weighed in at 288lbs at the 1988 Mr olympia and refered to as 6 foot 8 in the bodybuilding mags.He probably had a peak height closer to 6 foot 7

I guess that's true. Like I said I was never physical. I guess everyone is what they are. I guess the problem is my friends don't ask if they can lift me, they just do. It is embarassing when the kid is in high school. My neighbor just tosses me over his shoulder and runs with me for no reason other
than I guess to see me beg. Most times it's by surprise. He outweighs me by 60 lbs, and is only 17. I doubt it, but has anyone ever tossed you by surprise?
Max said on 24/Dec/07
Mark, it was a natural ability, the way a fast person would train to run even faster. I was always much stonger that my classmates as a child. In high school it helped my poplularity when people saw me doing strength moves like carrying 2 girls at once, or lifting my 260 lbs motorcyle completely off the ground.
mark said on 23/Dec/07
I guess I need to hang around with your people. I think the problem is my friends happen to be your size. Every photo, I'm the runt. So naturally when we take a picture they feel the need to pick me up, or set me on their shoulders. They are also big jokesters. What made you go into weightlifting and building up?
Max said on 23/Dec/07
Mark, I have taught on occasion. I was in my senior year of my Masters Degree, in University. I would teach the occasional class, when a Professor had to be away.
You are too hard on your size, I have friends bigger, the same, and smaller than you. I always treated them equally with courtesy and respect.
mark said on 23/Dec/07
Boy that height is impressive. You need to be in the classroom. I guess 5'9-160 lbs doesn't cut it anymore, especially in the respect dept. I'm sure to someone your size I'm looked at as small?
Max said on 23/Dec/07
Danimal, your grandparents sound just like my grandparents. They would also do the V/W pronounciation.

No Max, you most definitely have not offended me. On the contrary. I am quite impressed. My grandmother was from Munich and granfather from Berlin. While their English was quite good, their pronounciation of certain words was quite evident. They would often pronounce V as W and vice versa.

Wow! How tall are you?

Mark, I do weightlifting. I am about 320 lbs these days, I have been as high as 330 lbs. Dad is still is a big guy, has not really changed aside from a little grey at the sides.

Sounds like you are thoughtful. I guess they mean no harm, but just want to show me their strength. Once while teaching school this student called me a twerp (bold ha?) came up to me and said, "Look Mark" and just lifted me. But again,...he was over 200 lbs and a few inches taller. I think they just do it for fun, so I'm not saying I'm thrilled, but getting used to it. Wow your dad was a big guy, and you handled him? Do you do bodybuilding?

Mark, a very good friend of mine, who is no more than 5'6", if that. We never pick-up/carry him because he asked us to save it for the kids and we respect his wishes.
I was 17 once, so I can relate. My big thing was lifting my Father, who is about 330lbs, just to show off I had the power.

Thanks for the advice. I did say don't carry me. In fact, on ocassions I would beg. But sometime a 17 year-old doesn't think that way. I'm not real physical which may be a problem, so taking on the big guy can be a challenge. I once thought of turning the tables and I tried to lift this big guy, and when I failed, he just grabbed me and threw over his shoulder.

Danimal, I am fluent in both languages, as are many German people who have gone to University . I have no reason not to be honest, have I given you cause to think otherwise ? If my comments have offended you I apologize and will stop posting. Dolph Lundgren, another big fellow, holds a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering. It is a common misconception/stereotype that a very big person is not intelligent.

Max, I have to say that for someone who is German, such as yourself (as as my grandparents), your English seems to be perfect. Almost too perfect. You make absolutely NO grammar/spelling/punctuation mistakes at all. I hope you're being honest with us about your identity and your claims.
Max said on 21/Dec/07
Mark, I can relate, I hit 6'5.5" at over 250lbs while I was still in high school.
How to stop this, as I said before I only do it if the person is game. My friends are also the same. Just say No, I prefer not to be carried.

Glad I wasn't near the pool. But like I said...being smaller you get used to getting picked on no matter how old you are. Yesterday, my nephew who's still in high school came to the home for a holiday visit. He's athletic, about 6'3 225lbs and he was like 'Hey uncle Mark', and next thing you know I got a fireman's carry down the stairs into the den. It can be embarassing, but like I said, I have to live with it. Any advice how I can stop this? Advice that is from a big guy.

Mark, my friend who is about an inch taller than me, and similar build, has a cousin who was your size when he was 11. One time he asked to be tossed for distance into the pool and the game was on. His 6'10" brother won with the best distance.
