Austin may have touched 6ft2 years ago.

Yeah, that security guard was involved in some storylines before. He was a big guy, those fitted t-shirts made him look even bigger. He was probably a solid 250lbs, looked about 5'10" or 5'11" from what I remember.
Clay said on 23/May/08
Well we know if they listed him at 255 they were likely exagerating by 10 pounds, so he was probably 245 at his most. Impressive for a 6'0, 6'1'' guy. Hvae you seen many photos of Austin today? 235 is possible.
Alex said on 23/May/08
I think I know who you're talking about. Jim and he always wore black fitted t shirts. He didn't look more than average height at most sometimes.

Clay, Austin was probably pushing 250lbs at somepoint. I think he was around 240lbs most of the time. Today 230lbs maybe?
Jason said on 23/May/08
The security guard - he was billed as 6'0'' 260lbs. He was often on TV and used to sometimes get involved in the action. He was twice as big as Stone Cold in build and width, though was about 2 inches shorter. Dunno what happened with him ... I haven't spotted him since 2001 maybe. His name was Jim something, I think.
Clay said on 21/May/08
He always struck me as a 250 pounder.
Alex said on 21/May/08
Jason, they said Austin was 260lbs or the security guard?

JT, true Austin is one of the guys people don't expect to be that huge until they see him in person.
Jason said on 20/May/08
That head of security WWE had in 1999 dwarfed Austin in weight/build, and they said he was 260.
JT said on 20/May/08
I wouldn't rule out Austin being 250 lbs. in the late 1990s. Big Show said that when he first entered the WWE, he was surprised how heavy Austin was when he tried to lift him and said he was built like a tank.
Alex said on 19/May/08
Vegas, I agree. He has lost some size but he's still at least 225-230lbs I'd say compared to his 240-250lbs during his run in WWF/WWE. Still a big man.
You saw the man in person so I may not argue 6'0.5, plus its not going to be easy to tell the difference between 6'0.5 and 6'0 on tv or in pictures.

wrestling man says on 11/May/08
it seems as if none of you know too much about stone cold steve austin. anyone whose anyone knows he stands 6'2" and weighs in at 252lbs

having met the austin on three occasions and even shared a drink with him in 2004 i think i hope i am qualified to enought to comment ;) 6'0.5" was my estimate from our last meeting (two days before WM24 in Orlando) standing talking to him for a while, i would be very surprised if he is over 230lb as of April 2008, but then i have been surprised in the past
Clay said on 14/May/08
Whats strange is during the attitude era they still only billed Austin at 6'2'' when he could have gotten away with 6'3'' or 4'' with those chunky boots he wrestled in. I think 6'0.5'' is the right guess for today.
Bret Harts height said on 12/May/08
i watched a match with austin vs hart and austin has half an inch on hart i think that austin is 6'1 and hart is 6'0 but we all no for sure that austin is no 6'2.

Anonymous said on 10/May/08
No way is stone cold 6'1" Arnie is around that and he is much taller than austin.
Alex2 said on 9/May/08
I think he was 6'1" peak and I don't see how hes lost height, I highly doubt anything under 6'0" peak.
Alex said on 7/May/08
I could maybe give Austin 184cm at peak but today 183cm.
KingNick said on 5/May/08
I think about 6'1" is right, I dare say he may have been a full 6'2" at one point just b/c of this Click Here he seems to wear workboots a lot, which can give an extra 1" to even 1.5" in height (I have a pair that give 1.5")
Hugh said on 2/May/08
Thank you James. I think he was 187/188cm at his peak. But because of the injuries around the neck he is most likely to have dropped to 185/186m.
Alex2 said on 1/May/08
Alex, in that case your dead on 3 inches taller than me as im 5'9-5'9.25 for most of the day.
Hugh said on 1/May/08
Fine he's 182/183cm. Happy Now!
Alex said on 1/May/08
Alex 2, you're right. 6'0-6'0.25 is my height for majority of the day.
Alex2 said on 30/Apr/08
Id say hes around your height then Alex (6'0.25) if im right.
Alex said on 30/Apr/08
If he's over 6'0 its by a hair at most.
Hugh said on 28/Apr/08
Austin is well over 6ft. Trust me on this one.
Shawn Jones said on 27/Apr/08
The general concensus on the Shawn Michaels page is that he is around 5'11-5'11.5. Check out this clip:

Click Here

Go to 4:57 in the clip. You can see that Austin easily has a solid inch, inch and a half on Michaels, which would make him atleast 6'0.5-6'1
miko said on 18/Apr/08
I guess serious neck and knee injuries have lost him height. Probably 6"1 peak and a little over 6"0 now.
glenn said on 18/Apr/08
thats up to rob.im with rob and i met him.6-1.but thanks for your input.
Alex2 said on 17/Apr/08
Thankyou Glenn, I always thought he was a cool guy, yea maybe we should put him at 6'0.5" to make everybody happy?
Alex said on 16/Apr/08
It depends because some people only lose 1/2 inch and some lose as much as a full inch from out of bed to the evening.
glenn said on 16/Apr/08
alex2-i dont go on this page often.he was a great guy.patient and professional.i wouldve said 6-1.but he looks almost the same in height as he does in mamuns pic as with me.looks 6ft.doesnt mean he is 6ft.
Vegas said on 16/Apr/08
Danimal says on 11/Apr/08
Vegas, watch Beyond The Mat. Austin is shy of 6'0".

i have many times and for one i can't see if austin is barefoot or not and we all know about backstage cameras, austin looks 3 inches shorter than undertaker in one segment, in recent photos austin is taller than vince......

instead of video and photos i will stick to meeting the guys in person, thanks :) will upload photos of austin with me and my friends as soon as i get home, he ain't under 6ft
Alex said on 15/Apr/08
Austin probably is 6'0.5 out of bed I think.
Alex2 said on 15/Apr/08
Just look at the pic with Glenn IMO whats wrong with people thinking Austin is lower than 6'0"? Oh and Glenn I don't know if you visit this page but whats he like as a person? Thanks.
Viper said on 15/Apr/08
More like 6-0.5 after 48 hours of sleep If hes lucky.
Alex said on 14/Apr/08
Well we aren't going to be able to tell the difference from 5'11.5 and 6'0 in most pictures. Not easy.
Hugh said on 12/Apr/08
6ft1.5 barefooted.
brother_h said on 12/Apr/08
dont forget that wrestlers are masters of "tall tales" =p
Danimal said on 11/Apr/08
Vegas, watch Beyond The Mat. Austin is shy of 6'0".
Vegas said on 10/Apr/08
no chance austin is in the 5'11 range, glenn said austin was 6'1, not enough people listen to glenn on here in general despite him meeting everyone and being an excellent estimator of height and not a wrestling fan as far as i am aware so not biased :) austin certainly ain't less than 6ft
Alex said on 10/Apr/08
5'11.5-5'11.75 could be close to being accurate but I wouldn't go as low as 5'11 flat.
Alex2 said on 10/Apr/08
Well he certinally looks at least 6'0 with Mamun and Glenn.
brother_h said on 10/Apr/08
no no he was billed at 6'3 in the past. his min is 5'11 or so, and max has to be 6'0+
Alex2 said on 9/Apr/08
Alex, I highly doubt Austin is below 6'0
Alex said on 8/Apr/08
Austin in big boots is 6'2ish I do believe.
Hugh said on 8/Apr/08
Austin I think in boots is 6ft3+.
brother_h said on 7/Apr/08
he was wearing boots in that vid dude. big boots. he looked 6'2 with cena.

like i said in past post. look at beyond the mat. its on youtube.
No pity for the majority said on 6/Apr/08
Look at this
Click Here
Derek said on 6/Apr/08
James- Stone Cold is nearly as tall as Vince when he's in his boots.
brother_h said on 6/Apr/08
no hes not, during the donald trump segments, austin was shorter than vince by almost 2 inches. vince does wear giant shoes though, but austin is looking more 6'0 today so is mcmahon. watch beyond the mat, rock and mick foley, btoh billed at 6'3 both looked gigantic next to austin.
Alex said on 5/Apr/08
Vince back then I would say was possibly pushing 6'2 maybe. A solid 6'1 at least. Today he can look as short as 6'0-6'0 1/2 I think.
Alex said on 4/Apr/08
The above pictures put 6'1 to rest to.
brother_h said on 4/Apr/08
no vince is taller than austin. austin is between 5'11 and 6'1...6'0?

well alot of celebs claim 2 inches above their real heights and austin claimed 6'3 at one point in the 90's but the trend was to take 4 inches(idiots). and then he was 6'2 before 2000's.
Hugh said on 3/Apr/08
Vince is not taller than Stone Cold. There both the exact same height.
Alex said on 3/Apr/08
Austin's exact height I really think falls between 5'11 3/4 to 6'0 1/4.
Viper said on 2/Apr/08
The above pictures already put the 6-2 claims to rest.
Alex said on 1/Apr/08
Vegas, cool. Look forward to seeing them.
Vegas said on 1/Apr/08
got talking to austin over the wrestlemania wkend, strong 6ft, photos coming
Alex said on 31/Mar/08
Austin looks to have better posture than Rock too in their staredowns but its def over 2 inches difference though. And Austin likely is 6'0 but he could be as short as 5'11.5 though.
Viper said on 28/Mar/08
Rock doesnt have 3.5 inches on Austin James. 2.5 inches at most. Austin is 6-0 and Rock is around 188-189 cm.
Derek said on 28/Mar/08
Even back in the day, Austin was shorter than Vince McMahon, and that was in his boots.
Hugh said on 28/Mar/08
No, strong 6ft1.
Hugh said on 27/Mar/08
I think Stone Cold could be a strong 6ft1.
Alex said on 26/Mar/08
Cena is taller than Austin, at least 1/2 inch.
brother_h said on 26/Mar/08
yea cena is aout 6'0-6'1. hmmm in the beyond the mat movie austin was almost 5 inches shorter than foley and rock. only coz he was bare foot. so in boots he would be 3-2 inches shorter than them. 6'0 maybe? he is billed at 6'2 and rock at 6'5.
mr anonymous said on 25/Mar/08
If stone cold is 6 ft 1 then so is cena.There's a video from the iraq tour thing they did were cena gets a stunner and they're both the same height.
brother_h said on 24/Mar/08
austin is alot shorter than shane and the rock. so hes gotta be 6'0.
Alex said on 24/Mar/08
Austin at 5'11 1/2 wouldn't be too suprising to me but I wouldn't go below that though.
Alex said on 23/Mar/08
James, I wouldn't put Austin at more than 6'0 1/4-6'0 1/2 max based on most pictures.
Hugh said on 23/Mar/08
I know he's 6ft1 and but What I'm saying is that 1.93m isn't equal to 6ft3ins. Those guys are idiots when it comes to the metric system. 'about 6'3 or 1.93m'.
Hugh said on 22/Mar/08
That's unaccurate 1.93m is 6ft4.
Height Fiend said on 21/Mar/08
im actually quite suprised here, Austin is famously a touch under the 6'2 mark and one of the very few wrestlers who didnt want to be overbilled. He is a touch over 191 cm...in fact he was arrested and placed before a height chart and weighed, his statistics were recorded and put in his file...in fact i believe i have a link...Click Here and look for stonecold, in fact you can look on google images too. there you go. It shows he is just over the 1 m 90 cm mark and if u prefer to deal with inches then here is a clearer picture of the standard metric/imperial height chart used by police Click Here

Since mugshot pics and height records are taken with shoes on ( usually prison issue if you have been retained for some time ) You can chop off an inch and if it is taken immediately after their arrest then depending on sneakers or boots you can take off an inch or 1.5 respectivelly. Austin usually wears sneakers out of the ring and dont know why this is causing such a problem, he was arrested from his home so the chances that he is sitting at home and the police burst in and the first thing he says is " wait till i got get my lifts!" hahah no chance. . he is just under 6'2, no secret and FACT! Measured at this, there is the picture to prove it! dont see the problem. and im 5'8 so im not trying to chop him down to feel closer to him, im nt even an austin fan, its just not a big secret!!!
Derek said on 20/Mar/08
Stone Cold at his peak may have been 6'0 1/2", but I would not give him anything more than that. Keep in mind he did break his neck in 1997, so there is no way of knowing how much height he lost.
Hugh said on 20/Mar/08
Yes I have met Billy Zane in person. How about 6ft1.25 (186cm) for Austin.
Viper said on 19/Mar/08
Stone Cold might be close to 6-2 in wrestling gear. But barefoot he is 6-0 at the very most.
Jamie said on 19/Mar/08
Stone Cold looked at least 2 inches shorter than the Rock so I dont agree with 6ft2, You say Donald Trump is 6ft2.5 but on this site has a 6ft2 listing, even if Stone Cold did look NEAR Donlads height, you can't really tell the difference between 6ft1 185cm and 6ft2 188cm unless closely analysed. I think 6ft2 for Steve Austin is doubtful since the editor is even considering downgrading him to 6ft.05. Your also saying Billy Zane is 6ft2 which is an exageration I mean have you met him in person?

Do me a favour post me a youtube clip on this page of Stone Cold stood next to 6ft2 Donald Trump at Wrestlmania.
Hugh said on 18/Mar/08
He was in low-cut sneakers on Raw a week before Wrestlemania 23. He was eye level with Donald Trump. Trump - 6ft2.5.
Austin -6ft2.
Hugh said on 14/Mar/08
James watch the longest Yard, he towers over Adam Sandler. 6ft2 IS his height.
At Wrestlemania 23 he looked about the same height as Donald Trump whose a geniune 6ft2.
A said on 14/Mar/08
Here is a picture of Jason Statham standing next to Stone Cold. Statham is hunched forward a bit, so he might be losing maybe an inch of height.

Click Here

But that is a decent pic to show their height difference. Unless Stone Cold is wearing lifts. Or maybe they are both wearing lifts...
Hugh said on 9/Mar/08
Austin is 6ft2 at the very least. If not more. He's taller than Vince McMahon who is supposed to be 6ft2. 188-189cm.
Alex said on 7/Mar/08
I dont think Austin has shrunk. He just wore those chunky boots at times to appear taller. One thing for sure is he's under 6'1.
Kyle said on 4/Mar/08
watching old wwf videos when austin and the undertaker would stare down each other ..undertaker wasnt that much taller than him by like 4 inches. soo that right there shows..either undertaker isnt 6'10" or austin is like 6'2" or taller..soo idk..its soo lame how their heights are billed.
Alex said on 1/Mar/08
Lowest I could buy for Austin is 5'11 1/2 and tallest is 6'0 1/2 tops.
Alex said on 27/Feb/08
Looking at Vince today in WWE he looks 6'1 at most. He could easily be 6'0 1/2 and maybe as short as just 6'0.
Alex said on 24/Feb/08
Saying you're 6'1 doesn't mean much. I've seen guys 5'11 and especially 6'0 guys claim 6'1 a lot. A legit 5'11-6'0 can look 6'1 to some people. I'm not saying he's as low as 5'11 though. Very likely 5'11.75-6'0.25.
Josh said on 23/Feb/08
6'0.5 sounds better.
Viper said on 23/Feb/08
Well, Mamum has actually said that he could be just under 6-0.
Renee said on 22/Feb/08
sweet pics
dave said on 22/Feb/08
And dont forget the photo with that 6'3'' comedian where he was within 3 inches. Now regardless of footwear advantages, camera trickery and who is closer to the camera than who, a 6 foot man just couldnt do that - or a 5'11.5 man as Viper is trying to claim.
dave said on 20/Feb/08
You're still being pretty stubborn with your 6'0'' stance for Stone cold Alex. Look at the Mamun pic closely. Austin is slouching big time and still looks about inches taller. Now Mamun says he was closer to the camera, which is true - which bridges the gap. Definite 6'1''. Glenn says he was 6'1'' - the man himself says he is 6'1'', his lowest possible is 6'0.5 IMO. He slouches.
Alex said on 19/Feb/08
Luke I never said Austin is 5'11.5. I said 6'0-6'0.25.
Alex said on 15/Feb/08
Rob, I have a little question about Austin? What will it take for him to get downgraded at least 1/2 inch?

[Editor Rob: 184 might happen eventually.]
Alex said on 13/Feb/08
True he may have a bit. He looks about the same as he was before. Maybe 6'0 1/4-6'0 1/2 then and just 6'0 now I am guessing.
Danimal said on 12/Feb/08
He broke his neck and also had back surgery. It is possible he lost some height from that. HBK, Undertaker, Hogan and many others did from the same type of surgery. It's possible he didn't though. Either way, I give him nothing over 6'0".
Alex said on 11/Feb/08
I don't think Austin ever shrunk. Was probably always 6'0ish.
Danimal said on 11/Feb/08
I agree Alex. Peak height Stone Cold is 6'0" even.
Alex said on 11/Feb/08
I believe everyone here or almost everyone can agree that Austin needs to be downgraded to at least 6'0.5 and more likely 6'0. I wouldn't go as low as downgrading him to under 6'0 on here though.
Mamun said on 10/Feb/08
Thanks Alex for sharing your thought with me !!!

Regards

Supermun
Viper said on 10/Feb/08
So Mamum agrees with me. 5-11 1/2.
Alex said on 10/Feb/08
Mamun, yea he is known for wearing chunky boots that can give him even more height. Thats why he appears minimum 6'0.5 there. He is slightly leaning but is closer to the camera so the breaks about even. I'd still give him 6'0 but 5'11.5 maybe. I am not going to be able to tell the difference between the 2 easy anyway.
Mamun said on 9/Feb/08
Good Friends here , if you ask me I would put his barefoot height at 5' 11.5".
Because there are two things my good friends isn't puting into consideration
here ! First he is most definately closer to the camra than me as you all can
see . Second he was wearing his usual sneakers which had I think an almost
0.75 inch advantage over what I was wearing . This picture was taken only a
few minutes before the Sid Eudy Picture . You can all see the shoes I was
wearing that day .

Regards

Supermun
Alex said on 9/Feb/08
Austins eye level to his forehead is a good 4.5-4.75 inches I'd say. Based on this picture I'd say 6'0.5 but in other pictures Austin can look 6'0 flat or as high as 6'1 as well.
JT said on 9/Feb/08
Alex, the top of Mamun
Alex said on 9/Feb/08
I can't see how you see 6'2 and even 6'1 with 5'8 Mamun. Yea I did believe Austin was a legit 6'2 for years and did look it in some footwear but he was never with someone whos height we knew of for sure either so we couldn't tell. The most you can give Austin is 6'0 1/2 and thats tops.
mimi said on 9/Feb/08
he's more like 6'2,but god damn it,his eyes,so innocently blue..unlike his crazy attitude..stone cold rock
Moodiac said on 8/Feb/08
I'd say it's more interesting to me how someone is in shoes or the most he can with shoes. You won't ever meet a celebrity barefoot, when you'll also be barefoot (except of glenn, he could get it done). Nowadays people are nothing without their shoes. To compare the barefoot height of people also can be obvious because someone could stand absolutely tall, the other one could slouch a lil bit and another one may stand in pretty strange way so guessing their height becomes nearly impossible. For Stone Cold i'd say he should be the 6'1 he claims of himself and he also looks like that. If he's 6'1.25 or 6'0.75 or even a quarter inch more or less, it doesn't really matter. This is stone cold here, i'm talking about him, but also for everyone else, however tall they are. There are good days, there are bad days. For example my standard is 6ft. I've reached on very good days almost the 6'1 mark, maybe 6'0.5 or 0.75, which means doing sports, eating good, drinking enough water and sleeping about 8 hours and all of that for 3 or 4 weeks. And when i'm getting lazy or working in front of the notebook, i'm sitting almost the whole day and destroying my back. Loosing height is the result! Instead of the 6' standard, i slip down to the 5'11 mark. And i think the same applies for everyone else. What i wanna say is, we shouldn't always assume that any celebrity is on any picture the height he's listed to be. I believe in their listed heights. We ain't really sure about the height of a celebrity. How do we wanna compare him with others we also don't know their height accurately? But it's nice, at least we try it! ;-)
C said on 8/Feb/08
Stone Cold is an easy 6'1, more likely 6'2. I trained next to him for months when he shot Condemend on the Gold Coast. He would always wear running shoes. I am 5'10 and he towered over me.
Phil said on 7/Feb/08
Glen looks a little insane in the second pic...lol!
Alex said on 7/Feb/08
But you'll feel very tall in those boots though. They give you 2.5-3 inches to your height. Basically like high heels.
Vegas said on 7/Feb/08
$124 they are the fourth group down Click Here
Viper said on 7/Feb/08
Those boots looks expensive.
Alex said on 7/Feb/08
Wow, big boots those are. 2.75 soles should give the wearner about 2.75 to their height I would think since its not a high heel type shoe.
Vegas said on 7/Feb/08
combat boots as in military boots???

if so the standard military boot give around 1.4-1.5" too, my dad served 40 years in the army and for a time before he retired he had alot of different types of army boots/clothing lying around the house

these are bigger than average with a 2.75" sole giving the wearer approx 2.25-2.5" over barefoot Click Here
Alex said on 7/Feb/08
I've only seen like combat boots or cowboy boots give 2 inches of height.
Vegas said on 6/Feb/08
what sneakers give 2"??? thats bigger than standard cowboy boots which give 1.8-1.9"

shox turbo are one of the largest on the market and they give 1.4", some converse only give 0.5" Click Here
Alex said on 6/Feb/08
Danimal, converse sneakers give .5-.75 inches to you. But you're right, most give 1-1.5 inches.
Anonymous said on 6/Feb/08
I swear to god he does not look 6'1, he looks more 6'0, like 6'0.25 or 6'0.5
Danimal said on 6/Feb/08
Sneaker usually give 1 1/4"-1 1/2". There are some that can give up to 2". Never seen less than 1". Never.
Alex said on 6/Feb/08
Most sneakers give 1-1.25 inches of height. Then shox type give about 1.5. Then some like converse give around .5 inches.
nick said on 6/Feb/08
i dont know if its just me but my sneakers dont give me more than 3/4 of an inch, some give me only half and inch
Alex said on 6/Feb/08
I can maybe believe 6'0 1/2 at most for Austin but not 6'1 though.
glenn said on 6/Feb/08
steve was 6-1 when i met him.
Vegas said on 6/Feb/08
the fact that austin has 4.5" at least on two different 5'8 guys makes it very difficult to buy anything under 6ft for him

here in an interesting pic, obviously tyson is doing something there to look that short Click Here

rob has dane cook at 6ft and Jason Statham at 5'9 Click Here
big t said on 6/Feb/08
I don't know why people can't accept 6'1" for Austin. In the pic with Mamun he clearly has him by approximately 4 1/2 inches (eye level), or at least 4". Austin is between 6' and 6' 1/2" in the pic, and Mamun obviously has posture advantage, making Austin bang on 6'1"
JT said on 6/Feb/08
Austin's eyes are at the top of 5'8" Mamun's head and he's leaning. Easily 6'1" unless Austin has a huge footwear advantage.
cantstop25 said on 5/Feb/08
its not slanted in austins favor at all danimal
Anonymous said on 5/Feb/08
wait up, i've seen austin hundreds of times up close, as we grew up in the same town. i will assure you, take my word for it, that if he says he's 6'1'' he is 6'1''. he always struck me as tall, and he slouches./
Danimal said on 5/Feb/08
That pic really appears to be slanted in Austins favor though. I still don't think he is over 6'0".
Alex2 said on 5/Feb/08
Alex you would only need sneakers to get to that height from 6'1" as they often add around 1.5"

Looks 6'1" to me. Don't think he is any lower.
Viper said on 5/Feb/08
Charles Barkley looked 6-8 in a mugshot once. And Im pretty sure he had normal shoes on. Those mughshots can play with your eyes. Not saying Stone Cold probably had huge footwear on, plus the fact those mugshots can deceive big time.

Could be 6'0 1/2" with Mamun, but that picture also looks like it was before Austin's major neck injury, which happened in August 1997. I'm not sure if he lost any height from it, but it's something to keep in mind. Even with the neck injury, 2 things never changed: 1)Austin was always taller than Shawn Michaels and 2)Vince McMahon was always taller than Austin.
Alex said on 5/Feb/08
Well he was 6'2.5 in the mugshot so he'd need some huge boots to get to that height. Would be funny if he was on his tip toes though.

5'8 guys come up to me around the same as Mamun does with Austin but we can't see Austin's footwear though. He could as tall as 6'0.5 in this picture though but no more.

ROFLMAO tiptoes for a mugshot, man can you imagine that, that just turned my crappy ass day around LOL thank you alex I aint making fun of you but that was realy funny

"That hat adds to the to his height, remember, he's bald so his height ends where that hat begins. 6'0 even."

WTF LOL....o and i giv him 6'1" even today he was taller then stacy keibler in his big boots but she was in heels which defnitelly...and im surprised nobody mentioned him being nearly the same height as trump in trainers. Solid 6'1" he seems to slouch a lot, he doesnt really wear boots to make himself look taller its just his style
Atoadaso said on 4/Feb/08
Looks 6'1" with Mamun, when you consider he isn't standing as tall. He would just look over Mamun's head. What's up with his left arm, btw??
ambres said on 4/Feb/08
Looks about 6-1 on the bottom photo.
Viper said on 4/Feb/08
Im starting to think Austin might be 5-11 1/2 - 5-11 3/4 exactly. A very weak 6 footer.
Alex2 said on 2/Feb/08
why would Austin tip toe for a mugshot? lol, that height was probably in shoes which i could believe.
Alex said on 24/Jan/08
5'11 for Bret and 6'0 for Austin but it actually looks a bit less than a full inch.
JR said on 23/Jan/08
I meet Stone cold 4 years ago. I was wearing boots with a 1" heel. He was wearing nike sneakers. I am bare footed 6'1". Stone cold was a solid 2" taller than me. I say 6'2.75"-6'3.25"

I just posted this video on the Bret Hart page. Judging by this video either Stone Cold needs to be downgraded or Bret Hart needs to be upgraded cause Hart is the same height here if not a hair taller. They face off at about the 5:10 mark. Bret actually looks like he is standing more relaxed than Austin too and this video was before Austin had neck problems or his knee surgeries so he was at his peak height.

Pat said on 4/Jan/08
Height is obviously not what makes him intimidating.
Alex said on 1/Jan/08
Austin must have had on huge boots to look 6'2 1/2 in that mugshot, that or on his tippie toes or something.
Too many people are agreeing Austin is no more than 6'0. Time for a downgrade at some point.

i didnt mean ur the weirdo! i meant vince is the weirdo for trying to look taller than the other men.
and when did i twist ur words around? ur just to stupid to read.
ok austin would "Achieve" 6'2 becoz of his uber boots. ok happy, but he still looks pridy small without them. even without boots and with shane wearing dress shoes, he still towered austin by like 4-5 inches. or that was just the camera angle. rock in there was definatly the tallest and i couldnt tell with foley because he kept getting behind the camera.
Danimal said on 30/Dec/07
Weirdo??? What are you, 13 years old? Ahhhh, NO, do not put words in my mouth. Vince was always taller than Austin and Austin DOES achieve 6'2" with his huge army boots. Don't make me out to look like a fool brother. You're getting under my skin kid, by twisting my words around.

Rob, watch out for this poster. He's calling people names.
brother_h said on 30/Dec/07
so....5'11 =]. and that would mean vince mcmahon is 5'11 or 6'0. vince for some odd reason always has an inch or 2 over his employee's and if their too tall for him, he'll make them look taller and the others shorter. weirdo.
Danimal said on 29/Dec/07
Brother, I know exactly which seen you're referring to. It's backstage before Foley's BIG fight. This is the one I was/am referring to. The man struggled with 6'0". Whatever he was, it was never less than 5'11" and never over 6'0".
Jason said on 29/Dec/07
I actually agree with Danimal. 5'11 1/2''-6'0'' range.
brother_h said on 28/Dec/07
Danimal says on 27/Dec/07
Brother, Austin was also in the background. They all had more of a height advantage because they were all in front of him. Regardless, he was shorter and probably NOT wearing his boots backstage.

couldnt u see if he was wearing boots? he still looked smal compared to them. and they all looked down on him, im talking about the part where he greets mick foleys family.
im gonna try to watch it agen and get a better look.
nick said on 28/Dec/07
austin is 6'1 lowest 6'.5
Alex said on 28/Dec/07
Either way Austin I think should be downgraded to at least 6'0.5 on this site.
balls said on 28/Dec/07
if he straightened out his head , his eyes would be over glenns head , putting him at close to 6'1 (btw at his tallest he was always a tiny bit over 6'1 , imagine telling everybody 6'1 1/4) , these days probably around 6'0.5 or a little less , surgery and wrestling take a little off

but i cant remember whether he was in boots or not. all i know is that everyone was looking way down.
Danimal said on 27/Dec/07
Brother, I own it and you're right. In fact, I commented on that almost 3 years ago on this site. Vince was still close to 6'2" at the time. The Rock was closer to 6'3" and Foley was at least 6'2". Austin was struggling with a full 6'0" backstage. I say 5'11.5"-6'0" and not less.
brother_h said on 26/Dec/07
Just watch the beyond that mat and he'll look short to the other guys. and they were wearing shoes and he wasnt btw. so thats why he looked short.

I agree with you Alex. I would say a flat 6'0", or just shy of that.
JLA said on 22/Dec/07
Stone Cold is Really 6'0 to 6'0.5
Alex said on 21/Dec/07
Austin is anywhere from 5'11.75 to 6'0.25 I'd say.
Alex2 said on 21/Dec/07
Come on 5'11? He looks easily 6'1-6'2 with Glen and in the ring.
Alex said on 21/Dec/07
If he's under 6'0 its probably like 5'11 1/2. He's over a flat 5'11 though. Too tough to tell from just pictures.
Viper said on 20/Dec/07
I still think its not out of the realm of possibility that hes in the 5-11 range.
Alex said on 19/Dec/07
Ted, I agree. And its not easy to tell the difference between 6'0 and 6'1 on TV but with Glenn he looks 6'0 and not 6'1.
ted T said on 10/Dec/07
Stone Cold Steve Austin is 6ft.I'm not gonna say a weak or a strong 6.Just 6ft 0in.
Alex said on 7/Dec/07
John I agree but if he was 6'0 1/4 we wouldn't be able to tell that from 6'0 anyway but we can tell for sure the man is under 6'1 though.
JohnP said on 6/Dec/07
I don't think Austin is any taller than 6-0.
Alex said on 5/Dec/07
Austin I can bet on isn't 6'1 in his barefeet though he does look it in that mugshot where he was 6'2.5 in whatever footwear. With Glenn he looks 6'0 flat though. Next to guy 5'8 I think I even look a bit taller than Austin does with Glenn.
cantstop25 said on 28/Nov/07
people complain about 6'1" fro ausitn but look at glenn next to heath ledger and austin is clearly taller and by quite bit

If Glenn is 5ft 8in, than Austin is 6ft top.
Alex said on 23/Nov/07
JohnP, it is sometimes fun to mess around and tell people you're shorter than you are when asked. Just take off 2 inches, maybe 3 off your height. I've told people before I was 5'9-5'10 while I am 6'0 messing around and most were like no freakin way. Give it a shot tell some people you're 5'11-6'0 and see what they say since you're really 6'2.
JohnP said on 23/Nov/07
Bill Goldberg is more like 6-1 3/4 to me. He also looked about an inch taller than Austin mostly times in the ring.

If Austin says he is 6-1, then why would he be 6-2? Downgrading your own height like that feels very stupid.
riaz said on 17/Nov/07
Come on.. the rattlesnake can no way be 6'1.. the guy is bang on 6'2. He is as the same height as goldberg. So if bill goldberg is 6'2.5, Austin should at least be 6'2. LOOK at photos from his biography & wrestling career....
Alex said on 11/Nov/07
Most wrestling boots give 1-1.5 inches.
Vegas said on 10/Nov/07
in the ring while wrestling austin wore flat footwear, tyson's boots are giving him about 2" there and they look massive compared to austin's Click Here in comparison i doubt austin is even getting 1" from his.
Alex said on 6/Nov/07
His boots I bet can near 2 inches of height to him which is why he looks closer to 6'2 in footwear. You'd probably think ok 6'2 in footwear then 6'1 barefoot not thinking his footwear gives more than a normal inch of height. At the very very most Austin would be 6'0 1/2 barefoot. My exact guess is 6'0 1/4 right now.
Viper said on 23/Oct/07
I think the reason he might look taller in some photos is because of footwear.
dave said on 22/Oct/07
Time to re-think your 6'0'' stance for Austin Alex. Too many pictures of him looking 6'1/6'2.
Alex said on 19/Oct/07
If Posehn if 6'6-6'7 then Austin is standing on something for sure.

Austin looks 6'1 with 6'7 Godsey who is probably a bit shorter because Austin looks 6'0 in many other pictures.
Vegas said on 19/Oct/07
the guy looks a good bit taller than conan and says he is 6'6 on the show Click Here

jason; there is skeptical and then there is you man :P according to sources posehn's correct height is 6'6.6

Jason; you did say penn jillette was <6'3 after seeing him with me, lol, you were a fair bit out there to be honest.

I had another post about Benoit's height but I heard from a guy who lived next to Stone Cold that he is around 5 ft 11 bare feet. The guy who trained me who is now in NWA TNA is bigger than Austin but around 6 ft and 6 ft 2 or so in his boots
Alex said on 13/Sep/07
So what is your height at night time? 5'9 or just under?
Alex said on 13/Sep/07
I tend to say the average of my out of bed and evening height mostly.
Danimal said on 13/Sep/07
I go by my out of bed height like Glenn does. I could still say 5'10" (which I've been on at least 2 occasions in the morning), but I stick with 5'9.5" nowadays, which is what I am EVERY morning (unless I don't sleep the night before). Man, I'll be 30 next month :(.
5'7 JLA said on 13/Sep/07
Yeah out of Bed Im 5'6 exactly without shoes but at the end of the day im back to a ridiculous 5'5 1/4. How Come you gain when you sleep? Is it cause you straighten your spine for all those hours?
Alex said on 12/Sep/07
Also I haven't been measured by a doctor in 2 years and his answer was 6'0-6'1 which was a crappy answer really. Those stadiometers aren't the best sometime anyway, can be off 1/2 to an inch sometimes. One of these days I gotta measure myself 4 times out of the day. Right out of bed, 2 hours later, another 2-3 hours later than in the evening.

You tell people your out of bed height rather than your midday height?
Alex said on 12/Sep/07
Danimal, I guess it is likely that you can lose a bit of height with lots of weightlifing, but I don't think I lost any though. I just feel like that late in the day.
Danimal said on 12/Sep/07
Unfortunately I cannot reach 5'10" anymore Alex. Now I am 5'9.5" fresh out of bed. I don't measure myself other than directly out of bed. I'll be 30 next year. Maybe all those heavy overhead presses has compressed me by .5" Alex!!! ;)

No Vegas, I have not met Tyson, but many commentators have stated that his actual height was closer to the 5'9"-5'10" range (especially around his comeback in the mid-90's.).

How tall is Tyson though. He gets estimated anywhere from 5'9-5'11. He sure isn't no more than 5'10. I'd give him a legit 5'10.
Vegas said on 10/Sep/07
Tyson/Austin Click Here
Jay said on 9/Sep/07
Glenn has said he is a weak 5'8 and Austin was wearing boots in this picture. Austin has never looked over 6' to me. I'd say he is 6'1 range in that picture with his boots. Look at him beside Tyson, it seems pretty obvious to me that he is not 6'1 not sure why is he listed at this height.
Danimal said on 9/Sep/07
I see Austin struggling with an even 6'0". With his boots he seems taller.
Alex said on 9/Sep/07
It would be 5 inches if Austins head to his forehead was 6 inches which its not. He looks to have 4.5 inches from the top of his head to his eye level so again Austin at 6'0-6'0.25.
JK said on 9/Sep/07
Austin definetly has 5 inches on Glenn, 6'1'' is right
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
Vegas, I could lean toward 6'0.5 at the most for Austin but nothing over that but I think 6'0 flat is more accurate but not easy to tell the 1/2 inch difference. The thing is Austins's footwear, we are unsure if its similar to Glenn's or are they his big boots that give 1.5-2 inches of height. If Austin has bigger footwear then you can bet he's not over 6'0.
Vegas said on 8/Sep/07
Alex; the thing is though is that austin looks as tall/taller next to glenn than other 6'1ish guys like:
Roger Federer Click Here
Pierce Brosnan Click Here
Heath Ledger Click Here
Ben Jelen Click Here
ed burns Click Here
tom arnold Click Here
keanu reeves Click Here

Austin is at least 4.5" taller than glenn there and he is leaning slightly and further from the camera. 6'0 flat is still possible because i thought he looked that to me in person the first time i saw; but he doesn't look 6'0 flat in the bottom picture.
Alex said on 8/Sep/07
Who thinks Austin should be bought down to at least 6'0.5. Really more like 6'0 to 6'0.25. I'm not 6'1, 1/2 to an inch under and there is a slightly bigger difference between me and 5'8 guys.
Mr. E said on 6/Sep/07
Didn't Austin not want to work with Jarrett because, among other things, Jarrett was too short? Austin may look 6-1 with Glenn, but he also looks friggin' loaded as well! Look at those eyes!
Danimal said on 4/Sep/07
Vegas, he is also notorious for wearing huge construction boots, which can give him an extra 1-2".
Viper said on 4/Sep/07
Austin dosnt look like he can that much straighter.
vegas said on 4/Sep/07
Viper; how come you see only four inches there but 5 here http://tinyurl.com/353qva

if austin stood up full straight in the bottom picture he would have Glenn by close to 5" imo (glenn is also closer to the camera). Austin is a weird one though and having met him twice i still cannot pin down his true height
Viper said on 4/Sep/07
I see 4 inches between him and Glenn. Hes 6-0.
Danimal said on 4/Sep/07
6 foot even. Nothing more.
JK said on 2/Sep/07
I think he is right on 6'1''
Alex said on 1/Sep/07
Yea, 6'0-6'0 1/4 I think is most accurate for Austin.
Rob are you going to downgrade him to at least 6'0.5? Thats not 5 inches between him and Glenn above. He looks right on 6'0 with Glenn.
stan said on 29/Aug/07
He's only about 6'0 even, maybe 6'0 1/4. He wears work boots and baseball caps alot that gives him some more height. He was in stairdown with mike tyson in the ring for one those contribed confrontations back when both were in their primes and austin was only about 2 inhes taller, and tyson is put at 5'9 1/2 on this site. I think Tyson was 5'10-5'10 1/4.
Jalipasas said on 4/Aug/07
Ppl if we take into consideration the mugshot which is in metric, he is 1.91m (6'3") in his shoes so he definitely is taller than 6'1". 6'2'' is probably the finest choice if not 6'3''
John said on 26/Jul/07
Look up him mug shot online and it shows him at 92 inches which in turn makes him around 7'6" or 7'7". I know he really is not that tall but it is kind of funny to see the mug shot with those numbers behind his head. Check it out if you don't belive me. Google Stone Cold Steve Austin mug shot
5'7 JLA said on 19/Jul/07

you want to stand next to lashley im just over 6ft and i was lookin wel up at him hes well easily 6'3 and hes definately heavier than batista he made him look tiny on the phot i got with them 2.

He's not 5'11'' but he isn't 6'1'', either. About 6'0''. He wears boots, so it doesn't suprise me Glenn thought 6'1''.
Derek said on 1/Jul/07
JLA- Eyes are 4"-4 1/2". That puts Austin at 6'0"-6'0 1/2".
JLA said on 1/Jul/07
Stone Colds Eyes are right on top of glenns head if they were not to lean. And that would definetely be about a 5 Inch Difference. Stone Cold= 6'1
Oooo said on 1/Jul/07
You people are so insecure about your height. The man is clearly at least 6'1''. Just because you short don't mean you gotta make speculation about tall people's height. This man is no where near 5'11''. If he is tall then he is tall. You can't chop a couple inches off of him just because he is taller then you.
Alex said on 21/Jun/07
Danimal, he looks bang on 6'0 with Glenn in the bottom picture or 5'11.75.
Danimal said on 21/Jun/07
I say he's just shy of 6'0" barefoot. Seems the most accurate to me.
wrestling said on 21/Jun/07
he always looked 6'0" to me , hes nothing under 5'11" tho hes def a "american tall man" meaning over 5'11" , The Rock is around 6'2"-6'3" , and Triple H Around 6'1" and stone cold always looked shortest outta them , so0o 6'0" cannot be wrong but 6'1" is believable with Boots
TheMan said on 18/Jun/07
Ive got to say Austin must be close to 6,1 maybe indeed 185cm but just about i think. He's real height 6,0.75 i think.
Alex said on 18/Jun/07
We don't know if Austin is wearing big boots with Glenn or not. I'm about 6'0.5 and there is a little bigger difference between me and 5'8 guys compared to Austin with Glenn in that bottom picture.
Derek said on 16/Jun/07
I can believe 6'0", but 6'1" is too much. He doesn't look it with Glenn. 6'0", maybe 6'0 1/2", and that's a big maybe.
Jay said on 15/Jun/07
I can buy 6ft for sure with austin, but 6'1 no way. Looks about 4 inches taller than glen but he's also wearing big heeled boots. Solid 6ft is my guess.
Danimal said on 12/Jun/07

Alex,you are 6.0.5" (184 cm). If possible, can you get a picture with Stone Cold, so that we can really see how tall Stone Cold Steve Austin is?

HAHAHA. I never laughed this hard. You expect Alex to say OKAY, I'll call Stone Cold up tomorrow for the photo shoot??? I want to see who's taller. Me or Rovert Deniro. If at possible, is it okay if I get my picture taken with him??

Anonymous, it doesn't work that way in the real world.

Sam, Adam Sandler is 5'9"-5'10" and in movies, you can make someone look as tall or as short as you want. You do realize that, right?

Stone Cold is not over 6'0".
Sam said on 12/Jun/07
Can look huge at times. He towered over Adam Sandler in Longest Yard. I think he is 6'2 even

jack said on 27/May/07
one thing to note, he was wearing construction boots and I was in flip flops and we were eye to eye. So maybe he is 6'1 - him being about 50lbs heavier tends to distort things a bit too. That and after reading about all the heel sizes on this board, haha.
jack said on 27/May/07
I met Steve 3 times locally in Marina Del Rey, CA - gas station, grocery store, etc. He's taller than 6'1". I'm an honest 6'2" and he's at least that.

Yeah I can imagine, Glenn. I'm sure you're just relieved to get a photo after the sh*t you have to go through..
D. Ray Morton said on 20/May/07
Celebrities are paid gazillions to look "calm." And they're generally so accustomed to the clamour that they're rarely (if ever) caught in DIHL mode.

Glenn's "stunned" facial expressions don't surprise me in the least. But they do speak volumes. I'm sure many of the situations during which these shots were snapped were less-than-comfortable and certainly less-than-ideal.

I'm frankly amazed by what Glenn does. It must be incredibly draining. As one who has dealt extensively with event staff, management, PR people, security, doormen, and handlers of all kinds in the past - albeit in a different capacity than Glenn - I can attest to the fact that it all can be a COLOSSAL headache.

I'm just glad (and grateful) that he's able to get so many photos up here for us.

Great Stone Cold photos, btw. I always thought he was taller, though. He looks maybe 6'1" here.
glenn said on 20/May/07
how can i forget fighting with the celebs themselves sometimes.
glenn said on 20/May/07
gee,i never smile in the photos either.the situations are usually never relaxed and i explained already.im usually fighting security.not celeb security.celebs usually dont have security.to be perplexed,no offense,is ignorant.paparrazi,autograph dealers,fans, greeters,handlers,management,event staff,security,and police all get in my way.or when im smiling im usually alone.they dont knock on my door and make it easy.you try it.
supes78 said on 20/May/07
I must admit, I'm also perplexed by Glenn's facial expressions. For candid photos, the celebrities seem to usually look calm, but Glenn looks stunned.
Jason A said on 19/May/07
Glenn's awkward facial expressions never sieze to amuse to me. (laugh)
