@Littlelee
They give her more than just 3", as they have a thick platform at the front. 3.5" is more likely. She's likely around 5'11.5" with those heels, as she looks 1.5" taller than a shoed 5'10" Ric, so 5'8" barefoot.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 17/Apr/20
Charlotte would only get 3 inches from these heels. I still think 5ft 9 barefoot is right and 5ft 10 in shoes shes still quite a bit taller than him and in a video of him with Charlotte and alexa bliss she looks about a foot taller than bliss and 3 or so inches taller than ric shes deffo 5ft 9

5ft 11.5 is more likely in his prime

5'11.25" peak. 5'9" range now.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Sep/19
If Ric's 5'9", there's no way that Charlotte can be 5'9" as well. Even in this pic, she's wearing massive heels yet doesn't look a whole lot taller than Ric.
RP said on 16/Sep/19
And there’s about 10-12 pics on my page showing it.
RP said on 16/Sep/19
@ Rob, if the fella with long hair is truly 5’9.25” ?? Then Ric was wearing generous footwear the day of that pic. Given him an additional min 0.5” to maybe 0.75” ..I’m telling yeah...I had 2.5” on Ric...but, I did have what I believe to be a 0.25” footwear advantage that evening.
RP said on 16/Sep/19
@ Rob,
LOL @ chap that claims 5’11.5”!! He’s not even 5’11.5” in shoes! 🤣🤣 I can promise you! Me exact heights are 5’11.125” to 5’11.25” in the morning. 5’11.25” fresh out of bed @ 6 AM, and I quickly got 5’11.125” by 9 AM. And by 2 PM I’m typically under 5’11” @ 5’10.875”....and by 6 PM I’m always 5’10.75”, and you can see the difference of me & that fella with 5’8.5”-ish Flair. I had on 1.4” footwear that night. In the footwear I had on, I measure 6’0.25” in the evening.
Editor Rob
He was of course an inch smaller than 5ft 11.5.
RP said on 16/Sep/19
@ Sotiris, yeah Big Guy...that’s exactly what I pegged him at was 5’8.5” at first! Then, I studied his footwear for a couple of minutes, and I “think” I had a 0.25” footwear advantage. So, I leaned to 5’8.75” as an absolute max. But, I’d never trust Flair’s inner footwear either...wink, wink 🙃😉 he’s got a rather large head for an average height man, I must say too, LOL!
RP said on 13/Sep/19
Note: and my wife is 5’1.25” evening barefoot.
RP said on 13/Sep/19
@ Sotiris, Thank you so much. Yeah, I’m blessed with a great & sweet family. Yeah, Big Guy...in person I could only give Ric a (MAX) 5’8.75”...factoring in I had a 0.25” footwear advantage. He’s possibly even only 5’8.5”.
Your thoughts. Knowing my true evening barefoot height is 5’10.75” on the nose??

Losing only 3/8" is very unusual, especially for a guy your height. Most lose around 3/4".
RP said on 7/Sep/19
Had issues posting the pics of Ric & my family. However, they are on social media & can be seen on the public forum of our FB page @ Tonya Randy Pyne
Again,
I’m right at 5’11”
Morning 5’11 1/8”
Mid afternoon 5’10 7/8”
Evening 5’10 3/4”
Ric is MAX 5’8 3/4” now.
Note: I had a 1/4” footwear advantage on Ric that night.
RP said on 27/Aug/19
I hung out with Ric for about 30 minutes this past weekend. He’s only 5’8.75” barefoot IMO now. Based on my own 5’11” barefoot. Wouldn’t be shocked if he even only measured 5’8.5” late afternoon barefoot. I have several pics. I don’t know how to post photos on this site? Rob? I also met him in 1997 & in ‘97 he looked a strong 5’11”. Also met him in 2007, he looked 5’10.5” in 2007. In 2019 he’s only a MAX 5’8.75” afternoon barefoot IMO. Guys, give me the 411 on how to post these pics. Thanks.

Never looked tall in the wrestling world and often borderline diminutive.

Peak 179cm
Now 174cm

Quite a drop but all those years on the road and have just seen a very recent video of him from less than a week ago where he looks incredibly frail and with a boost from running shoes.
RP said on 10/Dec/18
Barrett, yeah, in the late 80’s to early 90’s PWI had Ric Flair listed at 6’1” & 243 lbs & Hogan @ 6’7” & 302 lbs. possibly the other of the article was going off script & kayfab??? But, in 1990, Flair was over 5’10”...I’d say at least 5’11” minimum in 1990? And every bit off 225-230 lbs. 5’10” & 220 is too low. Hogan 6’5” ‘& a bit of change & 295-300 lbs in 1990.
Barrett said on 10/Dec/18
Always remembering reading the PWI magazine in 1990 and there was a interview with Ric and they were asking about the dream match between Flair and Hogan and it was noted in the interview Flair has no chance as he was only 5'10 and 220 pounds and I remember thinking they were wrong Flair is at least 6'1 and aroubd 245 pounds but thinking back now was Flair really only 5'10 and only 220 for real?

@Rob how tall is Con Goer and how recent was the photo taken?
Many thanks.
Editor Rob
I seen that con goer in July again in one queue and made a mental note - he was over 5ft 9 easily, so Flair (a couple of years ago) could still manage to look over 5ft 10.
CasperGhost said on 19/Aug/18
At an autograph signing session in Dec. of 2017 and Ric walked directly in front of me. Now I’m a solid 5’11” and there’s no way Naitch is currently 5’11”. Maybe in his prime he was that tall or even 6 feet but now I would say no more than 5’9” and change. Plus , he was wearing a pair of (very nice) dress shoes with a bit of a heel. I was in my old beat up running shoes so I was probably a tad under 6 feet as we stood.
Sotiris Gravas said on 9/Aug/18
I don't see Flair as having ever been more than 5'10.5"(same height as Jerry Lawler who looked around 5'10.5" next to 5'7" Bill Dundee. (A real shame about Lawler's son, R.I.P.) Current height is around 5'8".

Here he is next to Nia Jax and Charlotte. Nia looks around 5'10, Charlotte appears to be wearing big heels so Ric Flair gets a 5'9 from me.

Only 5-11 peak height and estimates 5-9 and minor for Ric Flair now is nonsense at all, he was and is much taller than that.
Jim Hopper said on 8/Mar/18
You would be shocked if you met him,I did in Miami few years ago in a restaurant. Im 6-2". He is way way way shorter than me! At first I truly thought it cannot be him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Listed at 6-1" but trust me hes a short guy in truth. Id say 5-9 no more.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 5/Feb/18
@Danimal

Sting’s a bit more than just 6’1” IMO. Like 6’1.25” or 6’1.5” max. But I agree that Ric looks nowhere near 5’9” in that pic.
Danimal said on 5/Feb/18
He's MAX 5'7"-5'8" today in 2018 (he was 5'11" in his prime). Here he is next to 6'1" Sting in 2018: Click Here
Leno said on 4/Feb/18
I would say he was actually 5'10 in his prime, and they gave him 2 inches putting him up to 6', when in fact he was 5'10. Now, I think 5'9 is what is the real deal.
Faza said on 4/Dec/17
Remember ric was billed as 6ft1 back in the day in wwe knew that was inaccurate today he looks maybe 5ft9 range

5,9 sound right. I would also believe 5,10. Depending on how tall Charlotte is. I could see a strong 5,11 to 6,0 in his peak.

Attitude said on 29/Oct/16
He's a guy who was about the same height as the Midnight Rockers. A really average guy for his time which is actually interesting since back then they loved to have the guys well over 6 feet be champions. In the WWF he looked pretty small, especially when Mr Perfect was standing near him.

Isn't Macho Man around this height too? Him and Flair looked even when Macho wasn't wearing cowboy boots (which it seemed like he wore those 24/7 outside his ring gear).

Rob, do you think wrestlers liked wearing cowboy boots to make them seem taller in a more casual setting? Hogan, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Macho, HBK, Dr Death, and many others wore them constantly. I wonder if they wore elevators too...

I met him again this year and he looked pretty much 5'9 to me.
Rob has this right. I could see a 5'11.5 peak.
Kevin said on 17/Nov/15
Interesting met Flair in the early 90's and he was taller than me by about an inch, last year seemed about an inch shorter, guessing all those years of wrestling took 2 inches off him, think 5'9 is about right, he does seem so much bigger on TV somehow, least was for me, one of my all-time favorites...
Kourosh said on 29/Sep/15

Met him today, he visited sheffield, england he's about 5'9.5 max, but i think his peak height would have been 5'11.5/6

He was never over 5'11" peak. Piper had minimum 2" on his in the late 70's/early 80's. He's also MAX 5'9.5" today and Piper's around 5'8". Scary, but true.

In the mid 90's I was in the Atlanta airport with Rick Flair. He is short. I was actually shocked at how short he was only because his stats always listed him as taller. I would say he's only 5'6 or 5'7 at best. I suspect he wears lifts.
Mike said on 27/Apr/14
Definate 6 feet and still probably at least 5'11" now. Can't really buy that he's dropped 1.5 inches from peak. It's not like he's in his 80's. He still looks quite fit.

The Ben said on 1/Jan/14
I've just been watching some old NWA/WCW and I'd have to say a peak 6ft. I would say today he may just scrape 5'9. I had a pic with him and I on here, I'm just over 6ft and I had at least 3 inches on him in 2010. He was roughly the same height as Arn Anderson who doesn't seem to have lost much height and now there's a solid 3 inch difference.

bigd, I would say:

Flair 5'11"
HBK 5'11.5"
Kennedy 6'0.5"
HHH 6'2.75"
Batista 6'3.75"

Their height bills aren't lies if you accept the concept of measuring athletes in the footwear they compete in. All of those men basically fill out their bill when they put boots on, except Batista who has boosted to 6'6" during his feud with Undertaker, who is about 2" overbilled imo, also a result of Hulk Hogan's 2" overbill from his peak of 6'6". This also coincides with guys like Sid and Nash, etc.

The bare foot ric flair(5'10) next to HBK in boots(probably same height bare foot) next to Mr Kennedy billed at 6'2"(looks 5'11, 6' in boots at best in the vid) next to 6'4" HHH(6'2" at best) next to the self proclaimed 6'5" batista(6'3" at best) now someones telling lies.....
bigd said on 24/Apr/09
I went back stage at the O2 wrestlemania revenge tour. It was surreal. Gail kim, Teddy Long and MVP came off as quite shy and generally quiet too. MVP billed as 6'3" is a bit of an exag. He's 5'11" like me. Maybe they all have height complexes like all of us after all they're only human. I know they're deliberatley billed to be larger than life but still, 4 inches is just an insulting exaggeration.
Loma said on 6/Apr/09
At wrestlemania,I saw two things today.1st christian was bit taller than cm punk,who wears lifts.Making christian atleast 6'0-6'1 barefoot.2nd Flair was atleast an inch under rourke who is 5'10-11.Flair is 5'9.5-5'10.His son reid was arrested last month...reid is same height as ric and his police records say 5'11.
Shock of Electric said on 1/Apr/09
Ric Flair is more than likely barefoot in that RR08 video. He is definitely still 5'11" based on the enormous number of fan/worker pics I've seen, especially people whose height I know.

If Michaels is 5'11" (even listed 5'11.5" here) then Triple H has to be at least mid 6'2". There are countless examples of him being at least 3" taller than Michaels. Batista is also about 1" taller than Trips making him at least mid 6'3".

We all roughly know how tall and heavy Flair is or was but as a weightlifter,my question is does anyone know his tale of the tape? What is or was Flair's Chest size and arm size?
rafter said on 1/Feb/09
i actually agree with amit.

Clay,justin was no way as high as 6'0.During the x-factor days,he looked shorter than sean waltman[5'10-5'11].5'10 is max FOR jC.Moreover he builds himself 5'10 in indy's.
Clay said on 30/Jan/09
Billings are fudged both ways though. Christian was billed at 5'10 for the longest time, yet he's a 6'0-6'1er barefoot.
amit said on 19/Jan/09

The Ben said on 5/Jan/09
Danimal your totally correct, i measured myself this morning and i was just under 6'1.
I met flair a couple of months ago and he was 5'10 tops, he could have even been shorter, it wasnt until i got my photo with him developed that i saw the difference, ill see if i can get it up on here.
Danimal said on 5/Jan/09
Flair has NEVER been over 5'11". The WWE even had him listed at 5'11" and 220 pounds when he returned to the WWE. It was on the homepage for a few months and then taken down. I believe that he is around 5'10" today.

i met ric at a book signing and he was about 3inches shorter than me and im exactly 6ft.

I stood behind Flair at a convenience store in Charlotte and I am 5'10. I doubt he is much more than that and I had on a pair of old wore out Chuck Taylors! He had on boots. He is probably shorter than 5'10.

John O'Hurley is 6'3'' though. Flair is looking 5'10-5'11 these days there no doubt about that. Someone who actually held his own next to O'Hurley was Batista, who was also towering over Booker T on that show.

If you go to youtube and look at Family Feud he is 5+ inches shorter than John O'hurley. I say 5 ft9 but hey I'm biased Im 5 ft9 with shoes on ;)

I saw Flair in the airport in 1986 and he was about my height, 6'1". About a month ago he walked past me at a signing and he definately is shorter about 5'10" now.
Steve said on 8/Oct/08
Flair now looks about 5'10"-5'11". He said in his book he was 6'0". I've always heard 6'1" though. I always thought Tully Blanchard was the closest thing to Ric Flair, as far as the Four Horsemen goes. The way he dressed, interviewed, and wrestled, Tully was actually my favorite out of the Horsemen.

Arn actually was taller in his younger (PRE-MAJOR surgery days). His WCW days he was a shell of the man he used to be and was FORCED to stop wrestling because of major back, neck and hip problems. In the 1980's he was a force to be reckoned with and was at least 6'0" if not 6'1". WCW he was down to 5'10"-5'11".

Flair goes to my gym and I see him on a daily basis. I'm going with 5'11" to 6'. The guy who said he is 5'7" is full of ****. I'll pay closer attention today and give you a more accurate estimate.
Tim said on 12/Apr/08
I'm 5'8" tall,I've been next to a lot of 6'0"ers,in 1994,when Ric would have been 44 years old,I met and stood next to him and He wasn't more than a few inches taller than me,so even back then I would say he was 5'11" at the very most.
hs2008 said on 12/Apr/08

Humans may not shrink without radical surgery quite as often as people think. However, I believe posture becomes worse which leads to shorter height.

Back in the 80's when he was with the Four Horsemen, he looked about 6'0"-6'1". I think Arn Anderson and Ole Anderson were about his height as well. Tully Blanchard looked a couple inches shorter, at about 5'10". Flair's peak height was probably about 6' or 6'1. Hard to say.

I am a big fan of Ric Flair and there are two things I know about Ric and that is 1 Ric Flair is serious the moment he steps into the ring and 2 he never and I mean he never lets his fans down cause when he says something he means it and that is my story and I am sticking to it.

I give Flair between 5'10" and 5'11" and about 220 pounds in that pic, seeing Big Jim looks about 10 pounds heavier than Flair.
BigJim said on 22/May/07
That’s me in the photo. In that photo I was 5’11.5” and 230 pounds. Our shoes both looked about the same height. We were both standing straight and tall. I think I may have had half an inch on him at best, but then again you be the judge. Flair per my earlier comment stepped forward for the photo. A great trick I need to remember =).

The same day I stood side by side with Cena but he sat for the photo. My recollection is that Cena was as tall if not half an inch taller than I. I would guess that he weighs between 225 and 230. He was wearing the B-Ball shoes but the heel seemed comparable to what I was wearing, although it might explain the half inch. I only noticed because I really expected these guys to be huge.
Danimal said on 2/May/07
I agree with that Hivo. 5'10"-5'11" seems about right for Flair. He loves his white high heels in interviews, giving him the illusion of a 6'1" man, which he wasn't.
Msy said on 1/May/07
People with big heads look shorter than they really are, especially from long distance. Notice Flair's head is bigger than Hogan's.
Hivo said on 30/Apr/07
In Japan, Flair was listed as 180cm(5'11") in the 80s.
He cannot be taller than 180cm.

Spoke with him before the Rolling Stones Concert in Charlotte in 97. I am 5'11 and he was at least my height. Stood a foot from him while speaking with him for a few minutes. I thought he would be shorter from what I heard. Pretty thick dude with a large head.
Danimal said on 28/Feb/07
Hogan was never 6'9". Hogan WAS 6'5"-6'6". Flair today is MAX 5'10" and probably a bit of change in reality. In his prime probably just shy of 6'0".

If Flair is 6'0" then Hogan was over still close to 6'6" when he entered the WCW and faced off against Ric in their 1994 match. Hogan was A LOT taller than Ric, by at least 6". I wish I had the match on my HD, but I don't. It's on a VHS tape. Trust me though. Hogan was VERY skinny and still appeared VERY tall. HE probably had only shrunk only just over an inch by that point.

I Have met flair last year and he is 6ft, but barely. trust me flair is still 6ft tall
H2F said on 12/Jul/06
Saw some archives of the Milwaukee Journal. Flair was named All-Conference in football as a senior in high school. He was listed in the paper as being 6'0".
Danimal said on 11/Jul/06
Furthermore, Flair is a former powerlifter and prior to this plane crash, he was 285 pounds and he went down to 190 pounds in recuperation and later gained 57 pounds when he started trained again. He still has a great physique for a guy who's 56-57 years old.
TheMan said on 11/May/06
Yeah i think he could be about 181cm now. I think he would of been a strong 6foot in he's prime maybe like 183cm. That plane crash and he's career would of deffently effected he's height. Theres no telling how tall he was so im with rob on that one. Look how much Hogan shrunk so i can garantee flair did shrink but by how much.
Freddie said on 10/May/06
I met him once in St. Martin about 10 years ago. He was there with a bunch of other wrestlers who were putting on a show. I'm 5'11". When I was talking to him, he definitely appeared about 6'. I remember his hands being huge though. Seemed like a strong dude. Nice guy.
Elio said on 10/May/06
This seems like a legitimate reason for height loss. I reckon he should have a peak listing as well as his current height.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Jason said on 10/May/06
I'm always suspicious with height loss stories from wrestlers. Maybe he was 6'0'' at one point, but not 6'1''.
H2F said on 9/May/06
Quote from a 1997 newspaper article:
"Later that year (1975), he was in a plane crash near Wilmington, NC, that broke his back in three places and took two inches off his height. He's about six feet tall."

For the WWE "Greatest Stars of the 1980s" DVD released last year, Flair commented that he broke T10, T11, and T12. He described them as being "all smashed together," which would be compression fractures.

More than likely he's had further spinal compression from wrestling over the past 32 years.

[Editor Rob: broken vertebrae is likely to result in loss of height...so maybe this guy should get a peak height of 6ft 1!]
muta said on 7/May/06
My brother is about 6'0.5" and he saw Ric Flair in a club on the west coast in the 1990's and he stood next to Ric Flair and he said he felt like he was a little taller than Flair. I think it is fair to say Flair is 6'0"
Elio said on 2/May/06
I think he's taller than 5'11" anyway. Additionally, I think it should be compulsary to end your posts on this board with a 'woo'.

The Man, he is 5'11 barely I think today. I remember in a staredown with Kurt Angle on Raw last summer he had about an inch on him. Flair when he was younger no doubt was 6'0 I think.
