he looks 183-184cm to me..
Alex said on 17/May/07
Most wrestlers are added 2-3 inches to their real height. Then you'll have some only an inch like Cena then some like Kane who are added 4-5 inches to their real height then some like Orton who I think is his billed height.
There isn't 5 inches between Glenn and Austin though. 4.5 at most.
TheMan said on 17/May/07
Yeah roughly about 185cm for stone cold is dead on i think.
glenn said on 17/May/07
thanks tntinca.
Alex said on 17/May/07
Vegas, Austin in his big boots can easily look 6'1 or a bit more. In normal sneakers or footwear he looks 6'0 or a hair under or a hair over.
Crissy said on 17/May/07
I don't know he looks pretty tall next to glenn, i think he might be 6'1 1/2 maybe?
JohnP said on 17/May/07
Didn't Austin play college ball? Shouldn't there be an old listing of his stats then, like there are with mostly famous people who played college football. He played as a defensive end, that's all I know.
Alex said on 17/May/07
Danimal, the 2nd picture I think shows he's 6'0-6'0.25 but no way 6'1 though.
Vegas said on 17/May/07
First time I met Austin in sneakers he was roughly 6ft. Second time he was wearing something like those big boots he wears in the ring sometimes and looked 6'1+

you could argue he looks 6'0 or 6'1 or somewhere in between those figures with Glenn. Austin is leaning slightly and glenn is slightly closer to the camera in the second photo yet he only reaches Austin's eyes if you remove the lean on Austin so 4-5" difference there imo

well even if stone cold's boots didn't have heels wouldn't they still give him some height? also (to me) in the second pic glenn looks a lil closer to the camera than stone cold. so i think he's 6'0''-6'1''
Alex said on 16/May/07
Austin at 6'2 is way out of the question. Even 6'1 is. The most he would be is 6'0.5 but really he's more 6'0 flat or 6'0 1/4 which he looks with Glenn. I think others like Viper, Jason, Danimal and other elite posters will agree on that with me.
TNTinCA said on 16/May/07
The rule of thumb for wrestlers is that usually they add 1 inch of height. This increases as wrestlers get taller since it is easier to get away with as height increases. So if Austin was billed at 6'2" during his days in WWE, he is likely 6'1". 6'0.5" at the shortest in my opinion based on those pics. (Nice job again Glenn)
Danimal said on 16/May/07
Austin is not 6'2" Paul. that was his billed height in the WWF-WWE. He is between 5'11.5"-6'0" and that second pic of Austin and Glenn proves it.
glenn said on 16/May/07
i meant i had adidas.his boots didnt have heels.
JohnP said on 16/May/07

Austin was, and is still (he is still on WWE's superstar roster, since they take advantage listing him because he still makes appereances sometimes), at 6-2. Rock was billed at 6-5. And yes, you are right, often they do exaggerate like hell. There are very few times wrestlers get listed at their real height.

I would say Stone Cold is about 6-0 barefoot, although at wrestlemania he looked taller than McMahon and Trump when they signed the contract for Wrestlemania. Didn't he also looked taller than Bobby Lashley who is 6-1 (billed at 6-3 in WWE, but Wikpedia once before had a source that he was 6-1, but they've removed it now)? Of course, he wears boots, but doesn't the other guys wear lifts too?
glenn said on 16/May/07
he seemed 6-1.but did have boots on.i had reeboks.they were trying to rush him into his car when he agreed to take another pic.i was fighting security to get the better pic.
Alex said on 16/May/07
The top picture is a bad picture, tough to tell much there but the bottom one is good though. Austin looks 6'0-6'0.25 there. I'm 6'0.5 and there is a slightly bigger difference between me and 5'8 guys.

Rob, is the picture enough proof to lower Austin down to at least 6'0.25 you think?

[Editor Rob: second glennpic probably is closer to better stances. He might have slight down tilt of head.

Only thing I would say is if glenn is taking that pic or if the camera is like 2 feet away which it looks like, if one face is even 2-3 inches closer in actual distance and the camera is like eye level or slightly below, which looks that way here, it can make the shorter person look like 1/3 an inch, even sometimes 1/2 inch taller depending on elevation, than they actually are. The further the camera, the smaller this amount if one is a few inches closer.

Of course we always argue over fractions here, only glenn would know his footwear or austins and if they were equal here.]

deffo not 6'1 in this pic, closer to 6 i think, not huge for an ex wrestler, what was he listed as in hes wwf days? they exaggerate so bad, im sure i remeber the rock being listed as 6'6, clearly not this height in the real world, just displays the paradox that is the wwe
6'3'' JK said on 16/May/07
Woah i expected Austin to be 6'2'', but he is looking more 6'1'' these days especially with Glenn, You are bang on with your height listing for Austin Rob
Frank said on 16/May/07
I would say Austin is 6ft to 6ft.5 If Austin is 6ft 1 then Vince is 6ft 2 or better

[Editor Rob: glenn looks a bit stressed, was there a bunch of mad wrestling fans about in that first picture? The second one was later on?]
TheJerk said on 16/May/07
Its hard to tell with the angles of those pictures. It is possible that he is 6-0, however.
OutBenchThis said on 16/May/07
I'd be guessing 182-183cm but not 185cm
Drew said on 16/May/07
Taking into consideration the slight lean, he looks in the 6foot range with Glenn.
Alex said on 10/May/07
Anywhere from 5'11.5-6'0 is most accurate for Austin. Lean more toward 6'0 but in a 1/2 inch zone its tough to tell. He could be closer to 240lbs though, he does look a little smaller since his wrestling days though. But his height needs to be bought down to 6'0 at least.
Danimal said on 8/May/07
I see Austin at 5'11.5"-6'0" and between 245-255 pounds. He has huge legs and is still pretty solid.
Alex said on 8/May/07
I think we can all agree that he's no more than 6'0. I think he's 6'0 or he could be like 5'11.5-5'11.75 and its not easy to tell the difference between 5'11.5 and 6'0. He says 6'1 himself which I aint believing but I can believe he isn't far from 250lbs. 240lbs I can see him at.
Anonymous said on 3/May/07
He was a little taller than Stacy Keibler in heels (I bet they were 3 inches, which should make her 6-2 in them since she's 5-11), but I bet Austins boots was the same size, so I think that would make him about 6-0 barefoot.

glenn said on 26/Apr/07
spanked him.6-1.
Jason said on 24/Apr/07
Austin needs to be taken down, the consensus is he's under 6'1''.
Danimal said on 24/Apr/07
lol. NO.

Steve is between 5'11" and 6'0" (closer to 6'0").
Shmuel said on 24/Apr/07
Stone Cold Steve Austin is about 6'0 feet even, I know for a fact he's not 6'2 because he is at least 3 inches shorter then Tripe H & the Rock who's real height is about 6'3 1/2. Mankind is about 6'2 & Stone Cold Steve Austin is shorter then Man Kind by a inche or 2.
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
Austin at 5-11 is not out of the realm of possibility as well. Same for John Cena actually. They are probably 6-0 but you never know.
hulk said on 23/Apr/07
Why dont you find out how much is Austin shorter than Dory Funk jr.Try here I think that Dory is officialy 6'1", and that would make Austin something like 5'11", maybe a little bit taller.
Colton said on 19/Apr/07
lol if vince is 6 2 then so it austin their the same height.
chris said on 11/Apr/07
Looked to have half an inch on Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania...and at the contract signing of the billionaires he looked to be as tall as Vince McMahon whos put at 6'2"...
Alex said on 11/Apr/07
I think Austin is 6'0 but could be as short as 5'11.5. Very tough to tell the difference between 5'11.5 and 6'0 unless you're very close to the person.
Danimal said on 27/Mar/07
The man is struggling with 6'0" even.
CoolJ said on 27/Mar/07
I saw him again last night (without his boots) and I swear he looks shorter than ever. 6'0.5" ... maybe
JLA said on 6/Mar/07
In wrestlemania 14 he stood next to Tyson and Tyson is listed at 5"10 on most sites and Austin Appeared about 2 Inches max taller. I would say Austin Could be 6'0 or 6'0 1/2.
Danimal said on 6/Mar/07
Funny that this ChampioRoss guy like so many other people on here state their own height and then state the height of someone else they NEVER met. Notice how he never said I met him and he looked 1.5-2" taller than me. He just said implied that he HAS to be that much taller than him. BIG difference. Austin is 6'0" FLAT, or slightly under that.
Alex said on 5/Mar/07
I am sure people are getting fooled by Austin's boots in person because those boots gotta give him around 2 inches in height.
ChampionRoss said on 2/Feb/07
I am 6' with shoes/boots on and Austin is taller than me by 1 1/2" to 2". I would put him at 6' 1/2" flat footed.
Alex said on 12/Jan/07
This 6'1 listing needs to go down. Austin is only 6'0. I haven't seen proof that hes under though but he's certainly not over but if he is then its no more than 6'0 1/4.
Alex said on 12/Dec/06
Austin hasn't shrunk at all to me. Probably has always been 6'0. He is 6'2 in his big boots though.
Jordan said on 15/Oct/06
I agree Danimal but do you think Austin could have shrank from his neck surgery
Danimal said on 15/Oct/06
Hogan shrunk at least 3.5" the way things are looking nowadays for him.
Jordan said on 13/Oct/06
Austin could have shrank after his neck surgery. Hogan srank a good 2 inches so is it possible that austin shrunk??????
JK said on 13/Oct/06
i agree alex
Danimal said on 13/Oct/06
Yeah, I can buy that.
Alex said on 12/Oct/06
Randy Orton is listed at his legit height I think. 6'4.
Danimal said on 12/Oct/06
Strange that Sting was his actual listed height, or only an inch under it. That's rare.
Bleemo said on 10/Oct/06
Yeah Sting looks like a rock solid 6'2 to me, I think my post died where I talked about this or dis as Jezza Jerry MC would say. He was in Shutter speed and looked like quite a big fellah.
Danimal said on 10/Oct/06
Sting wasn't THAT much shorter than Hogan in his WCW/NWO days. Minimum 6'1".
Viper652 said on 10/Oct/06
I think Sting is 6-2.
Viper652 said on 10/Oct/06
Hey, at least Jerry is smart enough to see that Austin is between 5-11 and 6-0. Cant say the same for guys with good english but think Vince is 6-7 because he was taller than Conan O'brien like DKKO.
Danimal said on 9/Oct/06
Jerry, please tell me that you're less than 10 years old? If not, WHY oh WHY do you type the way you do? Why do you say dat, instead of that? Why do you say da, instead of the? Why do say wit, instead of with? Why do you say Dey, instead of they? and why oh why do you write y instead of why? Is English not your first language? If it is, PLEASE learn the proper way to speak and write it.
Danimal said on 9/Oct/06
Sting was always listed as 6'2"-6'3". I tend to believe he was that height. Definitely not under 6'1".

Alex said on 6/Oct/06
Sapp is 6'4 actually, not as tall as 6'5. I think he said he was about 6'4 so I'll give him that. he was a good couple inches taller than Austin.
Viper652 said on 6/Oct/06
I cant see the picture. I think Sapp is 6-3.
ralph said on 6/Oct/06
Austin looks 6'2.5" at that pic with 6'5" sapp.
Jordan said on 3/Oct/06
I think Sapp is a solid 6'4, and he is noticaibly taller then austin

jerry said on 26/Sep/06
Steve austin is 5 foot 11 in a half da reason y he looks da height da way he is in the ring is becuz he's wearing those boots wit da lifts all da time if u look dat his boots you'll those lifts underneath, stone cold always wear boots, he's da same height as bret hart if u look at da hall fo fame induction. He's not 6foot 2 stop believing everything dat da wwe say brock is 6'2 but dey build him as 6'4 for his character stone cold is 5foot 11 in ahalf.Plus austin is goona say dat he's 6foot2 becuz of his character its what dey want u to belive.
Viper652 said on 19/Sep/06
Logic says your wrong. Hes no taller than 6-0 max.
Ola said on 18/Sep/06
Austin 6'1 and vince 6'1 1/2 seems to be logic
ralph said on 13/Sep/06
Thats ridiculous. Do you know a guy called frank who is 5'11.5"? he has a pic with vince mcmahon , and vince looked 6'2".Austin is the same height of vince mcmahon, if he is 6 foot , mcmahon should be the same height of frank at their pic.
Alex said on 8/Sep/06
I think most can live with 6'0 which I think he is bang on but the 6'1 listing needs to be downgraded.
Danimal said on 6/Sep/06
I can live with 6'0", even though I think he's slightly under that.
Alex said on 6/Sep/06
There has been enough proof to bring the guy down to 6'0 but under that I haven't seen any proof yet.
ER. said on 6/Sep/06
Yeah. 6-0 he is.
Viper652 said on 6/Sep/06
Rob does need to downgrade Austin to 6-0 at the very least.
Danimal said on 5/Sep/06
That anonymous guy was me. I forgot that I cleared my cookies this morning!
Anonymous said on 5/Sep/06
Alex, Viper, understand that these guys like JK and the others are about 15 years old. An age where you'll still pretty much believe anything, especially if it's your hero. Reality will set in at some point ;).
JK said on 5/Sep/06
Danimal if i don't act like they are my opinions, too bad deal with it son, and Viper652 I still think that Stone Cold Steve Austin is 6'1'' - 6'2'' coz i agree with Editor Robs listing.
Alex said on 5/Sep/06
I use to believe those billed heights, well most of them up until just a few years ago. Its because on TV they looked it. In the last 2 years I started to know they were shorter than they really were. Before that I believed almost all the billed heights.
Alex said on 5/Sep/06
Danimal, Rob did actually bring Rock down to 6'3 flat from his 6'3.5 listing though.
Viper652 said on 5/Sep/06
"if we think Austin is 6'2'' we will believe Austin is 6'2''."

And you beleive every other 12 year old in your school is 6-2-6-3, doesnt make it reality though. Are you ever right on anything JK?
Danimal said on 4/Sep/06
Viper, Alex, I don't think Rob is reading these wrestling pages as much anymore. I and other have requested Taker, Kane, Stone Cold, HHH, The Rock and other's heights to be changed and he never responds.
Danimal said on 4/Sep/06
JK, the thing is you don't act like they are your opinions. You state your s**t as though it were facts, which they aren't. That's what pisses me off.
Viper652 said on 4/Sep/06
I remember when I was younger and use to beleive all the billed heights as well for the most part. You will grow out of it JK, I hope.
Alex said on 4/Sep/06
I think its safe to bring Austin down to 6'0 right now. Most will agree on that I think.
JK said on 4/Sep/06
YO, what is going on around here, Danimal do you think you and your liitle gang own this website or somethin, bro we will give our own opinions too we don't have to belive what you lot say, if we think Austin is 6'2'' we will believe Austin is 6'2''.
Viper652 said on 4/Sep/06
Louie, please stop posting. :(
Alex said on 4/Sep/06
Josh is pretty accurate most of the time too I think. I do agree Lesnar had about 2 inches on Austin but Goldberg didn't have 3 on Austin. Was more like 2, same as Lesnar.
Alex said on 4/Sep/06
I think its time to bring Austin down to 6'0 which he really is.
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
I give some props to you Jordan, at least you are closer to the truth :)
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
Danimal, these cronies are so bad that when you provide evidence, they flat out deny it. Its beyond laughable at this point. I know you dont like Jason very much but you have to admit hes better than these delusional souls.
Danimal said on 3/Sep/06
OH GOD, what's happening to this site??? We have Louie, JK, Ola, and so many others who have NO idea what they are talking about and they all believe the listed heights of these wrestlers. Viper, just remember when we were that age? We would have probably done the same thing.

This site (at least the wrestling pages) aren't what they used to be. It went from Jason, who downgraded everyone, to these new kids, who believe what they are told by the media. Sad..
Jordan said on 3/Sep/06
Austin looks like a legit 6'0. If the Rock is 6'3
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
Man does this site bring out the fanboys, ehh Danimal. :)
Danimal said on 2/Sep/06
Does JK stand for Joke?
JK said on 2/Sep/06
but i think 6'2'' is more liklier, 6'4'' is a bit too tall for Austin, thats The Rocks height
Agent piscapeli said on 1/Sep/06
Acoording to wreslte magazine Austin 6'4 1/2
Danimal said on 1/Sep/06
I give him 5'11.5" and Goldie 6'2.5". There's your 3" ;).
Josh said on 31/Aug/06
He looked 2 inches shorter than Brock Lesnar when he was the special referee at wrestlemania so hes more like 6'0 also Goldberg had easily 3 inches on him.
JK said on 31/Aug/06
I was wondering the same thing ralph, Robs listing looks most accurate to me.
CC-Tron said on 30/Aug/06
I agree. Austin is 5'11 max.
Danimal said on 29/Aug/06
Austin is under 6'0" Rob. Time to update.
ralph said on 29/Aug/06
Alex you say hes not 6'1" but thats rob listing. How can be stone cold 5'11", when he is one inch and half shorter than the rock?
Viper652 said on 29/Aug/06
Hes no more than 6-0 Max. I woudlnt be to shocked If he was 5-11 though.
JK said on 28/Aug/06
You mean he is 6'1'' barefoot because all of the heights in this site are barefeet heights. and here he is listed 6'1'' which i agree with.
Anonymous said on 27/Aug/06
Steve is 5'11 barefoot in boots around 6'1
JK said on 27/Aug/06
I disagree with you there Alex, Editor Rob has Austin as 6'1'' and i will go with his listing.
Alex said on 26/Aug/06
Austin isn't as low as 5'11 but he's not as tall as 6'1-6'2. 6'0 seems the best for him.
JK said on 26/Aug/06
Shut the f*** up Danimal, you're the one on drugs calling a 6'1 - 6'2'' guy 5'11''.
Danimal said on 25/Aug/06
Ralph, that's an old pic and JK, you are on some serious drugs. Austin is between 5'11.5".
Alex said on 24/Aug/06
Viper they are probably counting his 2 inch boots for him to be 6'2.
Viper652 said on 17/Aug/06
How in the world do some people see 6-2 for this guy?
JK said on 17/Aug/06
he is really 6'2'' not 6'3''.
Alex said on 30/Jul/06
Danimal, New Rochelle is actually a little north of NYC. It's a 30-35 minute ride to NYC by train for me.
Danimal said on 29/Jul/06
That's upstate isn't it? I'm actually just north of your state man. I'm Canadian. I live in Montreal, Canada.
Jordan said on 29/Jul/06
Anlge is a legit 5'10 IMO. Nothing more nothing less
Alex said on 29/Jul/06
What state and city do you live in Danimal?
Alex said on 28/Jul/06
Angle I think was measured 5'10 for the Olympics. I live in New Rochelle, NY.
Danimal said on 27/Jul/06
Well, wasn't he measured at 5'10" for the '96 Olympics Alex? BTW, what city do you live in. I saw your pics on the General page and the background buildings look familiar to me.
Alex said on 26/Jul/06
Danimal, do you think Angle is shorter than he was at at time. I don't really think so but maybe. I know when I met him he looked 5'10 and no more than that. I use to think he was 5'11-6'0 some years ago though but he was probably just 5'10 and I overestimated him a little.
Danimal said on 26/Jul/06
Alex, I only made mention of Austin perhaps losing height due to his broken neck and spine problems.
Danimal said on 26/Jul/06
JK, he is wearing LARGE, which clearly have more than 1" to Flat shoes have 1". Big boots have MORE ;).
CC-Tron said on 25/Jul/06
Austin's boots have thicker soles than the ones RVD wears. They very well may be closer in height than in the pic. Too bad you can't see their footware.
Alex said on 25/Jul/06
And I am not even sure if Austin has shrunk over the years. Guys like Hogan, Andre, UT have but not everyone though.
Alex said on 25/Jul/06
Austin isn't over 6'0. He looks 6'0 here exactly with 5'11 RVD.

JK said on 25/Jul/06
yeah i know that eh is 6'2'' in his boots, but i reckon he is a solid 6'1'' barefeet.
Danimal said on 24/Jul/06
It's his boots JK. He is NOT 6'2". Funny, you think that Cena and Austin are both 6'2", when they are both only 6'0".
JK said on 23/Jul/06
To me austin looks around 6'2'', i just cant imagine him being just 6ft. In wrestlemania 17 he looked exact height as Mr mcmahon who is 6'2''.

That 6'4.5 estimate for Austin was clearly a joke I'd hope, LOL.
Danimal said on 21/Jul/06
Austin is between 5'11" and 6'0". Watch Beyond the Mat and you'll see how short he is next to Mick Foley and The Rock in the lockeroom.
Alex said on 20/Jul/06
I find it hard that Austin would be shorter than me. I'd like to meet him.
CC-Tron said on 20/Jul/06
6'0? It's possible but I'm thinking Austin is 5'11. With those thick soled boots he reaches around 6'1.5.
Alex said on 19/Jul/06
I think we can basically put 6'1-6'2 claims for Austin to bed. He's obviously a 6'0 guy. I did think recently maybe he was 6'0.5 but I think 6'0 even is pretty much a fact.
talkkin Tom said on 18/Jul/06
Austin is 6'4.5

[Editor Rob: and I'm the queen of Sheba]
CC-Tron said on 10/Jul/06
Austin may have been taller than Brett but he was likely wearing those thick soled boots he often wears. I've never seen him go to ring without them.
D.J. said on 3/Jul/06
6'2" is possible but I think 6'1" is more accurate. Definitely no less than 6'1". He was quite a bit taller than Bret Hart and Bret legit is about 5'11".
chris said on 30/Jun/06
austin is 6'2. ive talked to him before
CC-Tron said on 13/Jun/06
Look at the soles on Austin's boots. The boots he always wore with the cutoff jeans and black T-shirt. Those thick soles give him at least two inches. Making him seemingly 6'0.
Matt said on 10/Jun/06
I saw him once in real life. He looked about my height (6'1).
