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.

Rob isnt he morbidly obese for his height then?

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

Measured well against the likes of Lesnar and Cena.

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 😉

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!'

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!

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.

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.

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.

By this picture with Rob i think he's a weak 6"0'

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.
