Listing is not bad.

I think he looks near 6'0 in the photo. I would put him in the solid 5'11.75 range.

@Jordan87: Indeed, very entertaining back on the day (Too Cool era). I used play as him quite a lot on the old video games due to his fun moveset.
Jordan87 said on 20/Nov/18
5'11.5" to 6'0 now as per Rob's Picture with him. Was very Entertaining back in the day. Agile for a man of his weight which was realistically around 350 pounds. They billed him as 423 pounds.

Rikishi is currently about 5'11 and a half.

Met Rikishi at a local indie show. Stood toe to toe and shook his hand.BIG fella for sure but I was surprised that ,at 5’11”plus running shoes(about .75 to an inch soles) I was a bit taller; maybe an inch. He , however was barefoot.

6'0" is right!
185 guy said on 24/Apr/18
Well I would Recommend Rikishi to feel Lucky to be over 6 feet tall because men who are 400 lbs are generally 5'10 to 6' no taller than that but are very wide. How about 184 ?
Richard Thomas said on 9/Apr/18
Interesting that people mention The Rock given how Solofa is his cousin

Editor Rob - Would it be possible to create links on one page for the Anoa'i family given how many WWE stars past and present are part of this huge family?
185 guy said on 2/Apr/18
Rob , how about 184 for now?
Editor Rob
I struggle to see that in person...
185 guy said on 2/Apr/18
Well Rob if he claims himself to be 6'3 so he must have measured himself up
Shivam said on 5/Mar/18
I was watching a clip from 2000 in which stone cold and Rikishi were standing together. Rikishi looked damn taller. So for current I would say 6'0.5 today and 6'4-3 for peak

I give him 6'0.5"-6'0.75" today. Could have been 6'1.25"-6'1.75"
----------------

I met him in march 2004 and he didn't look close to 6'1.75 then.

The cheek to claim 6ft3
phil said on 20/May/17
maybe he was 6'3 years ago maybe not
Csimpson 6ft said on 18/May/17
Rob isnt he morbidly obese for his height then?
LG69 said on 17/May/17
Solid 6'0 in the photo. Rob, do you think Solofa is a 400 pounder?
Editor Rob: yes I think he has to be 400ish
Johno said on 17/May/17
Measured well against the likes of Lesnar and Cena.
Fred84 said on 17/May/17
I think he is taller than 183 cm... Rob, if you are 173, he must be 185 at least, in my opinion. I tried that already - I am 177 cm, my friend 190, and the difference about 12-13 cm is like this on this photo (his eyes are over your head, so I think he is taller than 183 sure).
Editor Rob: 'his eyes are over your head' is possibly a little Off 😉
176cm guy said on 16/May/17
Hey Rob, i found his 6'3" claim on Twitter. Click Here
Editor Rob: it shows that even if he claimed a height, the wwe gave him their own shorter listing...which doesn't happen that often.

Solofa looks like a lovely, friendly, sociable guy! I rate his height as 6ft and agree with one of the comments (from Rampage Clover) that a guy his size will rarely stand his tallest.
I like his bleached, spiky hair! It's what can be called 'statement hair!'
heightchecker34 said on 16/May/17
Good choice Rob, Rikishi is pretty underrated in the ring due to all the hilarity and compromising positions, WWE would put him in. There must be something in the Samoan waters where most of the guys are over 6 ft tall! No doubt, he stood at 6'1 at his peak, and even though he is only in his early 50's, all those years wrestling does tend take a few inches off. If he is lucky enough to live till his 70's +, wouldn't be surprised if he drops to the 5'10 range. Although, don't tell him I said that, as I wouldn't want to receive a stink face from him!
Csimpson 6ft said on 16/May/17
I strongly disagree Aza hes looking more like 182-183cm in the photo with Rob, i wouldn't completely rule out that he could be 5'11.75, 6'0 at the maximum.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/17
A guy his size will rarely stand at his tallest...I think he may still creep over the 6ft mark today if measured. Definitely a 6ft1 range guy 20 years ago though
Johno said on 15/May/17
6'0 or near there.
Danimal said on 15/May/17
I give him 6'0.5"-6'0.75" today. Could have been 6'1.25"-6'1.75" 20 years ago.
Aza said on 15/May/17
Still looks over 6 ft in pic with Rob although not by a lot tbh. Peak height looks spot on.
Andrea said on 15/May/17
Lol, 6'3?
I don't know this guy but he certainly doesn't look over 182-3 with Rob... And he claims 6'3, LMFAO!
josh b said on 15/May/17
Does claim 6'3 on twitter I believe :P
Editor Rob: it's a little bit optimistic!
berta said on 15/May/17
sterange that he could look almost 6 `2 with the rock in that old clipp. today 183 seems fine but he may be one of those guys that are taller than he looks because of his weight
Headbanger said on 14/May/17
5'11.75-6'0 nowadays, good meet !
Csimpson 6ft said on 14/May/17
Rob is 5ft 11.75 for Rikishi possible?
Editor Rob: well this one I had found again recently it's from 2014, then he was roughly six foot then.
176cm guy said on 14/May/17
@Rob Did you delete his page? or is this still the same one? I swore you have a Matt Hardy page here too.
Editor Rob: when I moved servers the older legacy (non updated) pages were gone.
Pierre said on 13/May/17
By this picture with Rob i think he's a weak 6"0'
prasad said on 13/May/17
6.1
dicksock said on 13/May/17
He looked pretty close to The Rock in 2000:

I would say he was 6'1.5" and Rock was 6'3". His tremendous girth and his aging may have caused him to lose an inch or so.
