How tall is Stone Cold Steve Austin

Stone Cold Steve Austin's Height

6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1 ¼ (186.1 cm)
American wrestler and actor best known for roles in films such as The Condemned and The Expendables. He has claimed: "I'm 6' 1" and also "6-2, 250 [pounds]."
I got measured the other day. I thought I was about Six-One...I used to be Six-Two, but I got dropped on my head so many times I figured I was Six-One. I clocked in at Six-One and a half...I'm officially Six-One and a half and 272 [pounds].

I agree with the peak, but he may only be as low as 5'11.5" today.
TheDon1528 said on 25/Sep/20
6'0.75" peak and just a tad over 6 feet these days.
6'3 Julian said on 22/Sep/20
Austin’s height is tricky. He looked taller than Foley at times but shorter than Vince
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Sep/20
I don't think Annonymous meant that way. He was just agreeing with my estimate.
RR said on 19/Sep/20
@6'3 Julian
So if Vince McMahon's Peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm) and you told us Austin's height was 1 inch below that, that would mean this: 186.7−2.54=184.16
6'3 Julian said on 17/Sep/20
@Annnymous why are you agreeing with Christian, how do you know he’s never incorrectly guessed a height
Annonymous said on 14/Sep/20
The point is if you know the mentor was off on some of them why would you put Faith in his Stone Cold estimate. Christian is correct...184.5 CM peak.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Sep/20
The 186 peak listing here is off, but so is 183. I'd go with the middle of the road of 184.5 peak.
6'3 Julian said on 12/Sep/20
Viper I agree with you
Annonymous said on 11/Sep/20
I will say he didn't look more than 183 CM in front of Mike Tyson and that was in 1997.
viper said on 10/Sep/20
The mentor was right on Austin
6'3 Julian said on 10/Sep/20
@Anonymous I think he meant it was right for Austin, not necessarily the others
Annonymous said on 9/Sep/20
No it wasn't Viper, not all of it. Unless you believe Andre was 7'4'' and Owen was taller than Bret lol. The Mentor was making guesses as well.
6'3 Julian said on 8/Sep/20
Flat 6’1 or 6’0.75 peak. 1 inch above Hart and1 inch below McMahon
RR said on 7/Sep/20
Not quite as tall as Vince McMahon but more in line with Bret Hart's height. Just a little taller than Brett. The peak and current height are way off on here.
viper said on 5/Jul/20
183cm peak.

Mexican Mentors list was right
Estim8r said on 2/Jul/20
Same as the Rock in the 90s minus the hair
Mickie said on 30/Jun/20
4 cm range less than the Rock for peak height.
Riky said on 23/Jun/20
As many times i said he is 184 today, max 186 peak.
Jam Cherry said on 10/Jun/20
An honest claim Peak was about 186 cm now he’s more like 184-184.5 cm
RR said on 7/Jun/20
Austin is and always has been 6ft 0 ½. Today he measures 5ft 11 ½.
Roderick said on 4/May/20
@viper I can't see over 6'0" at all, can you? He looks way too short.

@Christian I personally can't see over 6'0".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/20
He said he got measured 6ft1½. I don't know why he'd lie about that..chances are it was early in the day. So with that, I think 6ft0¾ is a better current listing with 6ft1¼ peak.

Easily 6ft2 out of bed in the 90's
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Apr/20
I hope you're talking about his peak height, and not his current, when you say "stretch to 185cm".
Ben Bell said on 22/Apr/20
He’s a slouched with terrible posture. He rarely stands tall.
If he stood as tall as possible I could see him scraping the 6’1.5 he claims.
With his regular stance he does look just over 6ft.
viper said on 20/Apr/20
He looked 6-0 with 6-2 Rock
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/20
I think he can stretch up to 185cm
viper said on 19/Apr/20
Absolutely agree Roderick
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Apr/20
I think he was over 6'0" peak for sure, but nowhere near 187cm, I'll agree with you on that part.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/20
Berta, he could look like a 6ft1-2 range guy with The Rock
Roderick said on 17/Apr/20
187cm is way too high for Stone Colds peak. He was never taller than 6'0"
Mickie said on 1/Apr/20
I think about 4 cm between peak heights of Austin and the Rock.
berta said on 30/Mar/20
average seems low. i dont think he ever looked under 186 there was 5 cm beetween him and the rock and sometimes it only looked 4 and the rock was 191 cm peak. that measnt that very legit 186 is posbbile for austin i can believe 186,3-4 ish if you measured him at peak in afternoon. at the time he started doing movies maybe 2005 or when it was he was probably not over 186 and today i think he still is 185 and was measrued 6`1 1/2 like he sad but in the morning. i dont see only 184 cm he still is edging out guys like cena and cena is never under 184.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/20
184-185cm currently and 186-187cm peak
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/Mar/20
They looked very similar in height, although I highly doubt Saxton is the 6'1" he's billed at. Click Here
Lyle said on 17/Mar/20
Shorter than 6'1 listed Byron Saxton on RAW and SCSA had the footwear advantage, I can't see him over 6ft personally
Leon Evans said on 13/Mar/20
He’s well into his 50s now.

Very easily 6'1 range peak. 5'11 is laughable even today.

Vegas' said on 11/Jan/20
Zero chance Austin was 5'11 range peak. He was solid 6 foot range when I met him just over a decade ago and he wasn't peak physical wise then given he broke his neck way back in 1997.

He was noticeably taller than my 5'11.5 brother

how you could you say that he was 6'0 when you met him then claimed he was noticeably taller than your 5'11.5 brother? half inch is not noticeably at all.
Roderick said on 14/Jan/20
@Vegas He could be wearing lifts, you never know. Maybe he was 6'0" peak instead of 5'11.5"

5'11.5" peak IMO.

He might start shrinking more as he approaches his 60s. Could see 5'10" range maybe
Ema said on 27/Dec/19
He looks very close to a 5ft 11 bad bunny.
Roderick said on 23/Dec/19
@Christian I can see 5'11.5"-6'0" peak and 5'11" now. I don't think he's lost much
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Dec/19
It's ridiculous how some here really believe that he was only 5'11" at his peak. I can kind of understand a 5'11" guess for him today, but he's obviously lost some height.
Tall guy at 6'4"-6'5" said on 14/Dec/19
All you gotta do is look at the dude in a crowd, he was only ever about 5’11-5’11.25”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Dec/19
He looks 6.5" taller next to Lynch. Unless Lynch's only 5'4.5" (which is too low IMO), he doesn't look 5'11". Click Here As for Merriman, he does look 5'11", but that's assuming Merriman's max 6'2". Click Here
Roderick said on 27/Nov/19
@Greg He does look absolutely 5'11" next to people like Shawn Merriman or Becky Lynch. Austin might still be 6'0", but if he is, he is barely.
Greg said on 23/Nov/19
@Roderick you’re joking I can’t see him under 6’0 nvm 5’11 range he’s still in that 6’0 range somewhere.
Roderick said on 21/Nov/19
@viper He frequently looks 5'11" range
viper said on 19/Nov/19
He's always been 6-0
RR said on 17/Nov/19
- Peak: 6'0.5"

- Now: 5.11.5"
Roderick said on 16/Nov/19
Maybe 6'0" peak and 5'11.5" now. Austin was never 6'1"
184guy2 said on 7/Nov/19
viper he abandonned the wrestler due a neck issue , so I'm pretty sure by 1997 when Owen broke his neck , he wasn't anymore at his peak height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Oct/19
People who get neck, back or hip surgeries usually lose height. Everytime you have your bone or disc fused, it becomes slightly shorter. I'm not an expert on this topic, but just ask Sandy Cowell and she'll tell you.
TheBat said on 5/Oct/19
6'1" at his prime, now 6'0.5"
viper said on 28/Sep/19
I don't think Rock has shrunk at all.
viper said on 28/Sep/19
Sorry Rampage, Rock being 187cm at night is very,very believable today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/19
187cm at night for The Rock is laughable today forget in the 90's
Bazza said on 24/Sep/19
6'1 peak max and probably 6'0 flat today.
viper said on 23/Sep/19
Rock at 187cm late at night in 1996 is believable imo
Roderick said on 22/Sep/19
@Christian That doesn't mean he's "lost" height, IMO.

I'm not an expert on the human body or sciences really, but if he injured his neck, and they fix it, why would he lose height? He looks the same anyway. I think he's always been just 6'0"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Sep/19
@Viper and Roderick
It's obvious that he's lost at least a bit of height. He once broke his neck so bad that it almost ended his career. In fact, there's a better chance of him losing more height than the Rock did. BTW, Rock at 187 peak is too low. Nothing less than 189 IMO.
Importer said on 20/Sep/19
Click Here Steve Austin in grownups 2
Roderick said on 19/Sep/19
@viper He could have always just been 6'0". Kane was 7" taller than Austin and Kane was never taller than 6'7.25". Austin was never 6'1" though, I agree on that.
tree said on 19/Sep/19
Peak looked 185 Click Here
viper said on 18/Sep/19
Christian, that 1996 height list had Rock at 187cm and Austin at 183cm.

You would agree that's accurate late at night.
viper said on 18/Sep/19
Am I the only one who thinks he hasn't lost any height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Sep/19
184-185 peak, 182 today
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/19
@Viper and Roderick
6'0" peak is a bit too low. I think 6'0.5" peak at least.
Roderick said on 14/Sep/19
I think he was 6'0" and shrunk to 5'11.5". I agree, he's never looked 6'1".
viper said on 14/Sep/19
Think he's always been 6-0.

The 1996 Mexican mentors height list had him at 183cm
heightchecker34 said on 13/Sep/19
I don't see where all the 6'1 + peak comments are coming from. He always looked like a 184 cm guy in his prime, even with his wrestling lifts. He barely looked taller than peak 182cm Michaels in their stare downs, and looked pretty even with 6 ft Bret Hart. I am including the fact that he was bald, even at that time, otherwise I would have him at a flat 183cm. He still maintains good posture, despite a few surgeries by 54, so today I would have him at 6 ft, or 5'11.75.
Canson said on 12/Sep/19
@Christian: yea 5’11.5 is possible today
Roderick said on 12/Sep/19
Thank you Rob! Good work dude, :D

This is a lot more reasonable, and is much more arguable. I don't mean to sound bossy so I'm saying that this was a good move on all our parts in a team effort 👍 It took all of us to realise Austin wasn't this tall
Roderick said on 11/Sep/19
Now we also have Canson, Sotiris, Edwards, and Mickie to add as well. Rob, WHERE IS THIS DOWNGRADE?

We now also have Rawdshaq who seen him in person and said he was shorter than Seth Rollins (who is max 6'0.5"). Rob there seriously isn't a single chance he's 6'1.25". I don't know why you are ignoring all this recent evidence to suggest he's around 6'0" now, maybe even 5'11.5". We could all be wrong and maybe he's over 6'0"... but NOT by 1.25".

I have no clue what makes you suggest he's this height in 2019.
Editor Rob
I think today he could be 184, though I am not sure he is only 183cm...some height loss seems likely for him by now.
Johan 185 cm said on 11/Sep/19
He does look to edge out Mayfield so if 6'0 3/8's is legit then Steve could still be near 6'0.5-6'0.75"

The problem i have with him being any higher is Merriman looked easily 2.5 inches taller than him not long ago.
Riccardo 5'7" said on 11/Sep/19
With Titus and The Rock he looks 5'11" range
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Sep/19
I didn't say it was a 6" difference. That's around 6.5" though, not 7". Austin's head is slightly tilted up.
rawdshaq said on 10/Sep/19
Becky Lynch looks a tad over 5'5" to me
Mickie said on 10/Sep/19
I'm in agreement in the present day he generally looks closer to 6'0" than 6'1.25".

Peak height for Stone Cold though, I really think 6'1" - 6'1.25" is a possibility. I believe a peak height for the Rock of 6'2.75" (he's currently 6'2" flat imo) looks about right and Stone Cold in my estimation was 1.5" shorter, perhaps 1.75" at most. I don't believe the Rock had him by a full 2".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Sep/19
5'11.5" is just as possible.
Sotiris Gravas said on 10/Sep/19
Definitely not looking Rob's listing next to max 6'2" The Rock and 6'3" Titus O'Neil (2014):
Click Here
edwards said on 10/Sep/19
yes,count me too.i agree with all of y'all .the current listed height is too insane and unbelievable honestly.
rawdshaq said on 10/Sep/19
He looked about 3 inches taller than Aj Styles but Aj had a footwear advantage, so maybe 4.
rawdshaq said on 10/Sep/19
Stone Cold looked a little bit shorter than Seth Rollins in person. Don't be fooled by the camera angles that were showed on TV. He looked 6'0" to me, I suppose he could measure 6'0.25" at the most.
Riccardo 5'7" said on 9/Sep/19
Cm punk is listed here at 5'11.75 but I always thought he was 180cm. Btwthey look same height. But Probably i give Austin 183cm now against 182 cm listed punk.
Click Here
Back in the days
Click Here

He is slightly shorter then Jhon Cena who is 6'0" max. Jhon Cena did always look to me an inch or at least 3/4 taller then CmPunk.

Maybe 185.5 cm peak 183cm today
Vegas' said on 9/Sep/19
Christian he isn't 6'1+ but there is more than 6 inches in your photo Click Here

That looks over 7. Not sure how tall Lynch is though
Canson said on 8/Sep/19
Roderick said on 6/Sep/19
@Christian, Rawdshaq, Ricardo, and Creeper who are all pretty okay posters to me all agree that Stone Cold needs a downgrade. It is insane that he is still listed as 6'1 1/4" (CURRENT!) on here. It's impossible!!!

Count me as another. I mentioned last month that he can look 183 now. 186 is too high
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Sep/19
Yeah, I don't get why he's not lowered yet. If Rob lowered Triple H, what's stopping him from lowering Austin?

Riccardo 5'7" said on 5/Sep/19
I'm looking at some pictures around and I think his current height would fit better with triple h currents height.

In his prime I agree he was 6'1.5 or something but now he looks same height if not slightly shorter than Jhon Cena who we all agree is around 6'0".
Roderick said on 5/Sep/19
@Creeper Completely agree!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Sep/19
He desperately needs a downgrade. Looking max 6'0" with 5'5.5" listed Becky Lynch, and that's assuming she's even that tall (I have her at just 5'5" which means Austin's max 5'11.5") Click Here
rawdshaq said on 4/Sep/19
I can see 6'1" peak for him and 6'0" now. An inch loss at 54 for a wrestler with neck problems is possible.

I used to mention a lot how he got measured at 6'1.5" (supposedly) but perhaps that was a shoe measurement. So my apologies
Creeper said on 4/Sep/19
@Christian I know, I think he'd be lucky to measure 6'0" today, but I know Rob won't go all the way down to 6'0" so I suggested 6'0.75". He is just no way in hell as listed
Roderick said on 4/Sep/19
@Christian I know, I think he's 5'11.5"-6'0" now, but I just want to at least see Rob head in the right direction. We can all agree that there is zero chance he's 6'1.25" barefoot in 2019
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Sep/19
Even 6'0 3/4" today is too high for him.
viper said on 3/Sep/19
Mayfield was 6-0 3/8 at the senior bowl
Mickie said on 3/Sep/19
Stone Cold also held up too well with Goldberg to be 6'0" flat back in the day. Unless Goldberg was never more than a strong 6'1" guy. There couldn't have been more than 1.25" - 1.5" difference between them, at the very most.
Mickie said on 2/Sep/19
Anything under 6'0.5" peak height for him is ridiculous imo. He wasn't even a full 2" shorter than the Rock, who was at least a strong 6'2" guy in his prime. Stone Cold was also obviously more than just 2" taller than Kurt Angel, anyone with eyes can see that. I could definitely see arguing 6'0.5" - 6'0.75" range for peak height and 6'0" today. But I don't agree with 6'0" flat peak.

Roderick said on 31/Aug/19
Rob, I don't wanna sound bossy or anything or tell you to do something, but do you maybe consider a current listing of at least 6'0.5"?

Click Here This is him with Sal Vulcano who is MAX 5'8", probably shorter than that at like 5'7" or something, but claims 5'10" (lmao). Stone Cold is barely looking 5'11" in those pics. Maybe Stone Cold is someone you should give a current listing to.

Maybe make it

6'1 1/4" peak

6'0 3/4" now?
Vegas' said on 27/Aug/19
Baker Mayfield was on Steve Austins show last night. Should be good compared as Mayfield I believe measured 6 foot 7/8 barefoot.
viper said on 11/Aug/19
Could be down in the 5-11 range today.

He's probably still 6-0 and hasn't shrunk at all
viper said on 11/Aug/19
He's not struggling with 6-0 with 6-5.5 Tommy Kelley.

He looks 5-10
viper said on 11/Aug/19
Austin was never taller than 6-0.

Rock was never taller than 6-2.

Funny how the Mexican mentors height list was accurate for them
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/19
Austin needs a downgrade to his current height. He's obviously shorter than he's listed.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/19
If Austin was 6'0" at his peak, then The Rock would have to been around 6'2" peak.
Canson said on 8/Aug/19
@Christian: I think 6’1” range peak maybe just 185cm but today yea could be 183
Roderick said on 7/Aug/19
@Christian He didn't look any taller than 6'0" next to the Rock or next to Kane.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Aug/19
Austin's peak was taller than just 6'0". I'm not denying that 6'0" could be his current height though.
Importer said on 3/Aug/19
@viper In the movie grownups 2 I'd say he looks this listing of 186cm. However in that particular photo he's struggling to look 6ft next to the supposedly 6'5" 1/2 individual. I know another actor Jeffrey Dean Morgon who is atleast 6'1" and has looked below 6ft with bad posture on an occasion. I guess Stone Cold wasn't standing at his best in that photo, he looks 6inch shorter than the other man.
viper said on 1/Aug/19
He could still be his peak height of 6-0 today.

He looks so short with 6-5.5 Tommy Kelley
Johan 185 cm said on 1/Aug/19
Roderick said on 26/Jul/19
@Johan Idk how tall Kurt Angle at his peak was Tbh. He looks 5'9.5" max from my little observations I've made around him, but I could be wrong.

That photo Steve does look 6'1" but remember that is wrestling. Stone Cold was max 6'0.5" peak height and got a good boost with lifts. Never 6'1". On RAW, he was clearly 2" shorter than Mark Henry who is 6'1.25" max today.


The pic of Alex and Kurt is on Angle's page....yes he looked somewhere 5'9" range in that pic but Alex said that he dropped height and looked around 5'10" when straight.

Steve Austin has lost some height but I doubt very much he is under 6'.
John barrett said on 29/Jul/19
Seen Steve with Hulk Hogan just recent and Steve is a lot shorter he was looking around 6 foot as its reported that Hogan is 6'3 but he might have lost more height where does this put Steve?

Steve Austin at peak with Kurt Angle also at peak of 5'10".

We know Angle was 5'10" because Alex 6'0" met him in person and has a pic on the site. Alex was measured in person by Rob. Steve was all of 6'1" at his peak and now down to 6'0.5" today as shown when next to 6'3" Shawne Merriman.

Roderick said on 18/Jul/19
@Johan I don't see a 3" difference there. I spot a 1.5"-2" difference, meaning Stone Cold was never taller than 6'0".


Wasn't really that great a pic though, in some he had 4" on tyson but bad angles. I see you don't comment on him with Lundgren who Rob has also met. He doesn't look any more than 3-4cm shorter and Lundgren is a solid 189 cm.

Had 3" on a peak Mike Tyson so I do think he was 6'1" peak. Hence his 6'2" shoe claim. However the man himself admits that he has lost height and so I believe he is now under.

Click Here

Certianly didn't look over 6'0.5" with 6'3" Shawne Merriman.

Could still look 6'1" with Lundgren a few years back.

Roderick said on 4/Jul/19
This listing is probably one of the most off on the site to be honest. 6'1 1/4 for him today is absolute madness let alone his peak. He is 5'11" and he was never any taller than 6'0, probably honestly just 5'11". Rob, you are good at what you do 100% but please explain how you got 6'1 1/4 for Austin... That is absurd.
RR said on 13/Jun/19
Why would anyone take anyting pro wrestlers say at face value? 272? That's laughable. Bit of a stretch don't you think? 6'0.5" should be the absolute maximum given to Austin because he was able to hold his own quite well with other taller wrestlers like 6'2" Goldberg.

Steve still being 6'1" ( peak) would mean that Shawne is over 6'4" but he has been downgraded to 6'3.5".

Stone Cold looks 5-11 with 6-2 measured Shawne Merriman.


Viper being useful :)

I agree with the height difference but what I want to point out is that Merriman was measured at 6'4 1/2 by that nurse in what we assume is footwear. Now Austin claims 6'1.5" I just find it logical that he was also measured in shoes and is really at most 6'0.5".
Canson said on 6/May/19
@Sotiris: I have doubts that Butler is even that. He really just looks a solid 6’5” on the court especially seeing him with Kawhi Leonard. Leonard I could see being a legit 6’5.5 or even 197cm guy (6’6 in the morning). Butler doesn’t look that tall physically either. Honestly everyone talks about Undertaker being shorter than listed today but Butler really can look 6’4” at times

5'10 would mean he has shrunk over 2 inches in the decade or so since I last met him..

Shane is taller than Cena in person for sure. Deceptively much bigger in person than I expected. Well over 200lb too
Canson said on 14/Mar/19
I doubt Stone Cold is less than 6’0”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Mar/19
I've never heard of Austin being called short before. Even 20+ years ago, where wrestlers back then were bigger than today's, he was never considered as a "small" wrestler. That was more for guys like Shawn Michaels.
Space said on 4/Mar/19
Yes he’s 6’0.25” still today. He looks taller than a lot of the people on broken skull ranch. He’s a legit 6’0.25” nothing more nothing less. There’s no way he’s shrunk to 5’11”. He was a legit 6’0.75” back in the day and 6’0.25” today. I could see maybe 5’11.75” in the evening on a bad day for him, but that’s the lowest he’d ever be in his life. He hasn’t lost height like Batista has for instance. Batista was a solid 6’3.25” and was like 2.5” taller than Austin back in the day, they’re probably similar height now around 6’0.25” Batista maybe 6’1” still. There’s no under 6’0” for Austin even today.

Canson said on 5/Feb/19
@Christian: that’s also assuming Merriman’s 6’2 3/8 is a low for him. I have doubts seeing him in that video we saw next to Martellus Bennett who measured 6’5.75 at a different time and 6’6 1/8 combine which add up since the combine is in the morning

Even If you give him a full 6-6 Stone Cold looks 5-11 MAX with him.

Cena is 6'0.5, Shane McMahon is around 6'1.

Austin is still 6'0.5/6'0.75 range, down from a 6'1 peak.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Feb/19

I highly doubt he's low as 5'11", but I can see 6'0" as a worst case. He claimed to have measured 6'1.5", but chances are that it was a shoe height. Next to 6'2.4" measured Merriman, he only looks max 5'11.5"-6'0" though.
viper said on 4/Feb/19
He would only measure 6-1.5 in lifts

He was never 6-1. Always 2 inches shorter than 6-2 Rock.

@Viper: what was Kelly’s actual measurement at the Pro Day or Senior Bowl and Combine? I don’t see it. I’ve seen a lot of 6’5.5 measured guys that measure that in the AM and get listed 6’6”. As for Merriman, I thought you said he was 6’1.5-6’2” in person although I heard 6’2 from the person I know who met him

He wasn't just 6'0" peak. Lowest I could possibly buy is 6'0.5" peak. And that would put the Rock 6'2.25" range peak, at best. I don't think the Rock had Austin buy a full 2"+

Personally I'd say he's about 6'1" peak, give or take a little, and creeping down a bit these days.

I think a solid 6'1 in his prime. Not sure if quite 6'1.25 (possibly at lunchtime) but don't think he dipped below 6'1.

@Tree: If we are going to compare him during different points in his career, maybe at about post 2001 when he came back after a year plus to sort out his long-standing neck injury, sustained in the late 90s. Not sure if he lost any noticeable height during that period.
tree said on 25/Sep/18
Its hard to tell from that clip with Sting the exact difference but Austin never looked any taller than 186.0 in his entire wrestling career.
I don't see any point in trying to find things from the early 90's,he became a huge star in 96,he was only 31 to young to loose height.
In 96 he looked 6ft1 with Bret Hart Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/18
No he looks maybe at most 1in but Sting most likely cleared 6ft2 in the 90’s (Rob even argues 6ft2½). With that I give a young Austin

Out of bed: 6ft2⅛(188.3cm)
Before bed: 6ft1⅜(186.4cm)

Watch old matches of him opposite William Regal. Similar situation
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Sep/18

You can tell that Sting was noticeably a lot taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/18

Looks pretty close to Sting (arguably a strong 6ft2) here. This is early 90's (Note that Austin has hair)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Aug/18

That's the very most I can see him next to John Cena. I think Austin was a bit taller than that at peak but lost a bit of height. Maybe 6'0.75" peak.
Bazza said on 22/Jul/18
Just watched stone cold documentary and i have to say he looks 6' foot flat.

Rob you think Austin knows about height fluctuating from morning to evening?
That would explain why he thinks he was 6ft2,then 6ft1 and how he got a 6ft1.5 measurement,somebody should tell him lol
Editor Rob
Some measuring devices might also produce variation.

He might know about fluctuating - generally this is something I have noticed, at least half the folk I've measured have knew about being taller in the morning.

WrestleGod said on 21/Jun/18
Nah Steve Austin is not this height, that’s triple h’s height and he dwarfs Austin quite a bit. Even in 2003 when him and michaels were in a segment he looked about a inch or so taller. I would say this is his peak, but actuality 1.82 - 1.84 max. Shoes give him a bit of height so yea that’s my take.
tree said on 20/Jun/18
It was never fake, but was shot at a low angle adding a few cm's to his apparent height.

Back at their peaks, I think The Rock was about 1.5" taller than Stone Cold. Today both have probably lost a fraction.

Stone Cold - 186 cm peak, 184 today

Rob how possible do you think is 6ft0.75 for his peak height?
Phillip said on 7/Apr/18
In the old wrestling pic with Jake and Austin, Jake's heels are at least double that of Austin's. In the recent picture, there is about a 3.5-4 inch difference in height. Austin could have shrunk a bit or Jake could have the footwear advantage which is likely. I met Jake last year and he was wearing snakeskin boots with at least a 2 inch heel and I've seen Austin wearing sneakers a lot these days.

If you're so smart, how do you know it's a doctor who "clocked in" Mr. Stone Cold Steve Austin's height? And not his own fantastic wishful thinking. Where did you come up with that one I'm wondering?

We all have the right to express OUR own opinions. Maybe it's something you can't yet comprehend? We gave our honest opinions and now you're upset? WOW. Come on man! Living in your own bubble is tough sometimes.

Canson said on 16/Dec/17
@Rampage: Christian puts in work. he looks objectively and uses height charts and puts attention to detail. he’s like me in that he will assess lower than Rob has them listed but because most are a bit higher than they should be esp if rob doesn’t meet them in person even some he has met are still high but to be fair from a 5’8 vantage point assessing someone some 8-10” taller isn’t easy. Tyler mane is an example had him 6’8 after he met him then Ali Baba pics and mane claiming 6’7 were what made the decision to bring him down to 6’7”. Danimal while I respect him He is inconsistent. Robbins claimed 6’4 1/2 and is shorter than stern even today as well as Barkley being physically measured 6’4 5/8. I know two people who’ve met Barkley and both say he’s 6’4-6’5 one is 6’3 the other 6’2 and was a NBA Scout (my former AAU coach as a matter of fact). Yet he swears Barkley and stern downplay their heights. I do agree with Danimal tho on many of his other assessments such as Will Smith 6’1 and Rock being 6’2 today as the same 6’3” friend that met Barkley has stood next to The Rock and said he’s an inch shorter than he is.

Christian you habitually shave at least half an inch off everyone without providing a shred of evidence. Danimal however goes to both extremes. He thinks Tim Robbins is 6ft7 and that Scott Bakula was 6ft2. I could go on.....they're blanket statements. You think Austin was 6ft1, that's fine. I on the other hand look at his claims then look at how he fairs with other guys then and me he looks 6ft1 now and in the 90's was a bit taller.
Editor Rob: surely that 2 was a slip up, Bakula has only ever claimed to be 6 foot.
miko said on 29/Oct/17
Steve is a tough one at times. I think its fair to say he's around the 6'1 mark standing tall, not sure he's over it though.

After he had neck issues he had the tendancy of standing badly with his neck tilted which didn't help him height wise but when he did stand up tall he was clearly well over 6 foot, and held his own with most of the 6'2 WWE guys. Even in his staredown with 6'0 Bret Hart he was standing poorly and was still taller.
Canson said on 29/Oct/17
@Christian: this one is tough. I’m stuck myself. Maybe a peak height was 6’1 or near it or he could’ve been claiming shoes to say 6’1.5 and rounded up to 6’2 from that.

Well, you can't talk either Rampage. You think that Austin was possibly 6'2", and that's just as erroneous as Danimal's 6'0" estimate. Austin was never over 6'1", just look at him with 6'2.75" Rock and 6'1.75" Triple H during the 90's/early 00's (the two guys who you like to inflate to 6'3.5" and 6'2.5")

Looking at stuff from the 90's he does give a 187-188cm vibe at times. Holds up well with 6ft3-4 guys in the ring. I certainly would not hesitate to give him 6ft1½ peak (6ft2 early morning). Today he still looks around 6ft1 and injuries-wise he's among the worst.
