@Christian: you’re right. Andre the Giant was much more. And Snitzky is 3+

I have faith in Rob, like the voters do!

Shelton is a tricky one tbh... seeing him against 6ft guys like Christian and Matt Hardy, he actually looks to be around their height. However he looks similar to 6'0.25 guys like Cena and even sometimes smaller than 6'05 Jeff Hardy (while Jeff is wearing flat shoes). So I would give him the 6'0.25 height, cause I can't decide whether he is 6ft or 6'0.5. He looked a bit smaller than 6'0.5 Rollins in their match recently last year. He has to stop the dumb gimmick of height-ism, especially in wrestling, 6 ft isn't that tall!

A 1.5" inflation isn't all that bad by wrestling standards, as a lot of guys are inflated by 2-3"+.

More wrestling inflation on height lol.

Shelton is taller in person than he ended up looking in the photo though.

Rob what's your height in cm? When i convert seems you have 170cm. My fridge has 170 so comparing your photos with celebs i can know my real height. Please respond. Thanks
normally I am in the 173cm range, which is 5ft 8 and a little bit.
5ft 7 is about 170cm.

Struggling to see 6ft for this guy. 5'11 maybe, but 6'0?
Nik said on 14/Jul/18
6'2" is out of the question!

Looks 181 182 here

Yeah if this guy was taller than Cena then I guess Cena really is more 6'0 flat as he claims or 6'0.25 at the most, maybe its time to downgrade Cena Rob?, its hard to judge how tall Shelton looks with you though because he isn't standing straight but was both your footwear the same?
Roughly same I thought, but he did look taller than in this photo.

If Benjamin's a confirmed 184 and edged out Cena, then Cena might not be 184. I never ruled out 183 for him honestly. Maybe he really is an honest 6 footer after all. But I still put Cena at strong 6'0" for the benefit of the doubt.

Rob,how many inch he might be losing this picture.
12 years back he used to look taller than 184 range John Cena even without wrestling boots.
In this picture,it's visible that John Cena is having footwear advantage and Benjamin is slouching more than Cena.
If they stand straight with same footwear I believe Shelton will be taller.
Is it possible that he was 6'1" in his early days?
Maybe even today on some good day?
Editor Rob: I thought in person he did seem over 6ft flat, so he didn't stand as well. At times in the past he certainly could seem close to 6ft 1, so I was thinking before meeting him whether he was that tall.
I would say, not that far off it, but I give him the 184 mark.

He also may be a complete 6'2" guy in his prime but not sure about it.
But whenever I saw his photos with any 6'1" guy during 2003-04 or 2005 he always looked about an inch taller.
Jinx said on 8/Oct/17
He is never shorter than 6'1" and in his prime he was 1.87 m tall
When we stand relaxed or bent we are shorter than our actual height,we all know that.
In my opinion Shelton Benjamin is taller than any 6'1" wrestler but since he is 42,I have to believe that he is shorter than his peak height so I think he's 6'1" at present but no shorter than that in anyway.
Present Height: 1.85 m or 1.86 m
Peak Height : 1.87 m

Here I am with Shelton. I am about 6' or 6'0.25" on a good day. I think I had the slight footwear advantage that day, and Shelton looks like he's losing a little bit with his posture. I'd say Shelton is definitely in the 6'-6'0.5" range.

He looks over an inch shorter than the 6'05" challenger, is he loosing that much with the slight head bow?
[Editor Rob: i think he was losing an inch]
said on 6/Aug/13
Is 185cm possible, Rob?
[Editor Rob: my thought was he was 184cm range, he could be 186 out of bed]

i met him in person a few years ago late at night, he was taller than julian glover (who rob has a photo with as well) so not sure why he looks so short here
