How tall is Superstar Billy Graham

Superstar Billy Graham's Height

5ft 11 ½ (181.6 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 4 (193 cm)
Wayne Coleman is a former American wrestler. His friend Steve Strong said he was a "Ridiculous specimen. I think he was six-four, and weighed 285. You had people coming from far and wide just to observe him." Graham himself said in 2007 "Because of spinal erosion, I'm about four inches shorter than I was at the height of my career. Occasionally I forget that I used to be six-foot-four."

Peak height was 6’2.75” barefoot !
Was 6’4” in his wrestling boots.

6-3 peak. Looking at videos I can’t see anything over that as a peak
berta said on 11/Jan/20
this guy was never taller than at best 192. of course he may have been measured 193 in the morning but in the afternoon my bet is 191,5-192.

@Rob: he’s really lost 4.5”?

Graham was listed at 6'3" and 6'4" as a football player in the 1960s:

@berta

Think about it, nearly all wrestlers have their heights exaggerated. If Graham was really 6'4", he would've been listed at least 6'5" by whichever promotion he was in, but he wasn't.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Oct/18
6'3" at the very most for his peak, but there's even a better chance that he was under it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/18
Rob, are you sure this guy was a true 6ft4?




I don't doubt for a second that he's lost a lot of height but over 4in!
Editor Rob
Well you could make an argument for 6ft 3-3.5 peak.
berta said on 6/Oct/18
hm i just looked at photo of him and arnold. If arnold stood straight i think there would have been 7 cm beetween them. I think arnold was 186 guy peak not 187. Billy have shoes that gives maybe almost 2 cm. That means he was really 5 cm taller than arnold barefoot. And that puts him at 191 and f arnold really was 187 then he was 192.
berta said on 6/Oct/18
Rob i must agree with christiain on this one. I dont think he was just 189 peak but i just cant see him over 191 cm peak. I think he went with out of bed height in that claim and was really "just" a legit 191 guy
RoelC said on 6/Oct/18
Vegas, I think you're referring to this pic of Graham & Keirn
Click Here
Picture is a little bit tilted in Keirn's favour, but I agree that Graham looks ~6'2" there.


Can't remember from which wrestling mag I got this picture, but they listed Graham at 6'2"
Click Here
Not sure if he was actually ever billed at that height though.


Graham was listed 6'4" when he played football.

As for Graham & Schwarzenegger, this is what Graham had to say about Schwarzenegger's peak height

I personally don't believe Graham lost over 4 inches in height. Now if he was a legit 6'4" in his prime he might've lost 4+ inches, but I don't think he was ever that tall to begin with. He looked around 1-1.5" taller than Vince McMahon (who I don't think is anything over 6'1") in the 70's and they looked roughly the same height here. If I recall correctly that video still is from around 2003 or maybe a little earlier.

Standing next to his friend Bill Anderson, I don't see any height loss between the years 2002 and 2011.
Click Here (2002)
Click Here (2011)

His health obviously deteriorated after 2011, so he might've lost some more height in recent years, but I don't believe it's anything more than 2.5 to 3 inches.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 3/Oct/18
A 6'4" peak for Graham is too much. You can't convince me that he lost 4.5" in height, when he seems to be healthier than Hogan, who supposedly lost 3". RP could be right that Graham was more 6'2.5" range.
Editor Rob
He said he had spinal erosion and ankle disintegration. Big bone density loss and vertebrae problems.

@Vegas'
What would that make prime Arnold then ? Have you seen their pic together??
:x
---------------

Arnold is not standing anywhere near straight and also barefoot so photo is really pointless to estimate height. Arnold peak was around Vince McMahon Jrs height and the videos of Graham and Vince show maybe 1-1.5 inch difference between the 2 during the 70s.

There was an excellent photo of former wrestler Steve Keirn (~5'11) and Graham from the 70s online that I can't seem to locate now where Graham looked 6'2..both men standing straight, similar footwear
RP said on 1/Oct/18
Rob, Superstar was max 6’2.75” peak barefoot. If not more like 6’2.5” ! This needs corrected ASAP!
miko said on 1/Oct/18
This is probably the best photo we have of the 2 where Arnold isn't badly hunched over.

Click Here

He's still not standing great but we can see that they would be fairly close in height. With Graham maybe an inch taller, both at prime height.

I did think at first weak 6'3 peak for Graham but I'm thinking somewhere between 6'2/6'2.5 now from pictures I've seen.

Wooah..this height drop is even greater than hulk Hogan's....so it is really true that steroid kills

lol Danimal
He looks almost 2 inches taller
same height ahm ...
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18
Sorry but I'm not buying a 6'4" peak for him. 5'11.5" could've been accurate in 2012 when he met Tyson, but I don't know if he'd lost more height since then.
Zampo said on 27/Sep/18
I'm not sure if Billy Graham was ever 6'4 (think this was his WWE billed height). I thought he was more a 6'3 guy in his prime but I'm not really sure. On him with Tyson in that video, there is around a 3 cm (4 cm max) difference in Graham's favour which puts him at roughly his current listing.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Sep/18
@Danimal

Billy was clearly taller. You probably just saw a few seconds of the clip where they looked the same height, and not the whole.
RP said on 26/Sep/18
Yep, he was noticeably taller than Tyson. Especially when they shook hands. Looked 1.5” taller when shaking hands.
miko said on 26/Sep/18
Graham has easy height on Tyson.
Danimal 5'9 3/4 said on 26/Sep/18
Rob, as of 2012, he was already down to 5'10". Same height as Mike Tyson:

I'm not sure they looked the same height, Graham looked taller to me.

Rob has he got the second biggest loss behind David prowess on this site
Editor Rob
One of top 3 I believe, Mick Mars is another who has Spondylitis, which effected him over 4 inches.

___________________________-

I have ankylosing spondylitis. At 50 I have already lost 3/4".
Kyuss101 said on 25/Sep/18
More like a 6-2.5 peak
JT said on 25/Sep/18
Graham was never 6'4". He lived a few blocks from me back in the late 1980s and was maybe 6'1" by that point. The most I could give him is 6'2" peak.
RP said on 25/Sep/18
They have him listed at both 6’3” & 6’4”.
I’m willing to bet the 6’3” listings are barefoot & 6’4” in shoes.
RP said on 25/Sep/18
*** I meant to say his Canadian Football League listings & Minor League Football listings...not college football. I couldn’t find any college football info on him.
RP said on 25/Sep/18
Again...
Peak 6’2.75” barefoot. Check out his CFL listings & college football listings.

Graham also mentioned how his ankle was in a terrible state, and that might have been an inch lost there (much like Prowse lost height in ankles too).
miko said on 24/Sep/18
Never looked 6'4, more 6'2.5/6'3 range, wasn't that much taller than McMahon when he was in his early 30's (prime).

In 1987 a 6'5 peak Hogan made him look 6 foot flat and had an easy 5 inches on him.
Alex 6'3.25 said on 24/Sep/18
Wow, huge height loss
Victor Malmstr?m said on 24/Sep/18
he could be 180 cm today. I dont think he was 193 cm peak. he never looked that tall. 6 foot 3 maybe
Zahid said on 24/Sep/18
6'4" peak is believable based on this picture with 6'1.5" peak Arnold: Click Here

As for now, I believe he is 5'11.5" or less.
Vlad_Fyodorov said on 24/Sep/18
Damn, wrestler 's bodies really get ****ed up when they get older.
Vegas' said on 23/Sep/18
He never looked 6'4 to me. Roel or JT found a 6'2 peak listing for him which seems more accurate

At 50 seconds onward with Vince in 1977 Click Here

Looks 4 inches shorter than Hogan in 87, both in cowboy boots, probably had lost some height at that stage Click Here
Rick1 said on 23/Sep/18
What a staggering loss of height over 10cm ! Other than one of the actors who played darth vader i believe who lost near 6 inches he has one of the greatest losses of height of anyone on this site, How common is this Rob? and would you say its more common in very tall people?
Editor Rob
If you have multiple disc problems and other joints disintegrating (like ankles in Graham's and Prowse case), that is going to be a big amount of height.
184guy2 said on 23/Sep/18
Very sad what happend to him
Rob do you think that roids had something about with this ''collapse'' ?
Connor Simpson said on 23/Sep/18
Wow so he used to be 6'4 now he's 5'11.5? that's 4.5 inches, that's a very big shrinkage rob, I didn't think it would be even remotely possible for someone at 6'4 to shrink to slightly under 6'0, that is extreme.

How did he end up shrinking that much?
Mincer said on 23/Sep/18
That's some insane height loss. Rob, it seems to me wrestlers on average loose most height than any other profession in entertainment do you agree?
Editor Rob
It's a business that puts big strains on joints.

Plus, if any wrestler were to take substances, that might be a contributing factor to issues.
John E Barrett said on 23/Sep/18
Legend - one of the best who was back in the day a legit 6'4'' man but now in his mid 70's and after a host of op' s has lost a lot of size and height Billy does look even shorted then this 5'11..
RP said on 23/Sep/18
Was never, ever a true legit 6’4” barefoot!
6’2-3/4” peak barefoot. Only 6’4” in generous footwear.
Randomdude22 said on 23/Sep/18
4 and a half inches!!!!! ???

that is A LOT of height to lose,didn't even think that was possible
santgr said on 23/Sep/18
Thanks for adding him Rob. Poor guy lost too much from all that steroid abuse among the years. Let that be a reminder for all of us young folks out there who are tempted to use steroids.
World Citizen said on 23/Sep/18
Wow! He lost a lot of height..
Greg said on 23/Sep/18
Wow talk about an insane height loss can’t imagine going from 6’4 to barely 6’0.
