Yeah 6'8 makes sense for cass. He never looked as big as a 90s Kevin nash

Rob, you said on Kevin Garnett's page that he could wake up at "7 ft 1 ish" but do you really think Big Show too can wake up at that height??

Check out Steve Austin's podcast with Big Cass. He asked him what his shoot height is and he replied 6'9"


6'8'' no more Click Here

Why is everyone downgrading Kane so much? I've said it time and time again, Kane was always closer to big shows height than ANYONE on the roster ever.

Carlos said on 30/Apr/16
It's certainly difficult to see being the big show being anywhere under 530 in that period as he was floating around 500 but then piled on weight and was absolutely huge towards the end of 2006

What do you think Big Show's heaviest weight was? Wasn't he close to 580 lbs ?


Don't know about 580 lbs, but he looked 550 Pounds easily in 2006
Carlos said on 29/Apr/16
MelvinJones, I don't think he got that heavy but probably was around 550 lbs at his biggest in late 2006, possibly more so not that far of that
Vic said on 29/Apr/16
I believe his heaviest was when he started to lose hair. Probably 550lb.
When he became bald he has once passed 530lb I think.

Jordan87,
Big Show is a strong 6'10", also in the NBA locker room Shaq was over an inch taller than 6'11.25" Garnett and both were barefoot.
Anything less than 7' for Shaq is BS.



Big Show is no shorter than 6'11''. Here he is with 5 ft Terri Runnels Click Here

Show has to be at least 7 ft with standard dress shoes, don't forget Terri is 5" stilettos. Big Show easily looks 2 ft taller

Johno said on 19/Apr/16
Shaq judging by the size of his feet and the type of footwear he normally wears, nearly always has footwear advantage over others.

With the same footwear as Show, the most we can argue is 1.25 inches difference. In the exact same footwear, the difference would be an inch.

The Big Show is still a strong 6'10 as compared to Shaq. Shaq has been downgraded to 7'0 in some NBA listings; probably 6'11.5, he ain't got much on Show.
Jordan87 said on 18/Apr/16
Rifle,

Shaq is 6'11.5 Making Big SHow 6'9.75. Agree on the 1.75 Difference, Disagree on Shaq's actual Height.
James B said on 15/Apr/16
Back in 2003 I think big show looked 6'11.
Rifle said on 15/Apr/16
Based on recent Wrestlemania, Shaq is 7'0.5" and B.Show is 6'10.75".
Period.
unseld said on 13/Apr/16
Shaq isnt taller than 7'0
Johno said on 13/Apr/16
I believe Show measures within an inch of Shaq in the latest picture, the difference only looks greater when they are on different planes. They had roughly the same differenc3 when in formals a few years back. Makes you wonder how well a young show and streamline Show would have stood next to Big Shaq.

I believe Khali edges the both of them.

Show 6'10.5-6'11
Shaq 6'11.5-7'0
Khali 7'0-7'0.5
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 13/Apr/16
Big Show was in cowboyboots during their first staredown next to Jericho, that´s the reason he looked only 1" shorter.
Big Show in wrestlingboots always looked around 2" under Shaq in BBshoes. I doubt Shaqs sneakers give him more height than Shows big heeled wrestlingboots.
mrtguy said on 12/Apr/16
Alex 6'0 said on 10/Apr/16
I think 7'1 and 6'11 is good for them. Def no less than 2 inches apart but if you go back to their first meeting in 2009 or 2010 It was it looked 1-1.5 inches. Big Show has lost height since then it shows

I see no difference
Sean said on 12/Apr/16
Big Show was really tall back in the WCW days - I'd say 7'.05" barefoot. If there was a stare down between him and Shaq back in WCW (1996-1998), they would have probably been close to the same height. Nowadays, Shaq probably has 1.5 and 2 inches on Show. So current - Big Show: 6'10.5 - 6'11 range, Shaq: 7'0" - 7'.05" range.
James B said on 11/Apr/16
7'0 range for shaq Is not impossible.

By the way I think as far back as 2000 big show was 6'11.5-6'11.75 range and today 6'10.5 solid.

Alex 6'0 said on 9/Apr/16
At first glance Shaq can look 3 inches taller than Big Show. Not saying he is though. Most likely its a 2 inch difference. It looked more like 3 at first because of the camera and Big Show's posture. 7'1 and 6'11 Id give them each though 6'10.5 for Big Show isn't impossible
Junior31 said on 9/Apr/16
JT said on 6/Apr/16

Chunky boots for big show. Show without em these days 6'10.5-6'11. Shaquille these days a little over 7ft

Rob was shaq at 7'1 measurement in the afternnon? For all we know he could have been measured at that mark at lunchtime or in the morning?
Editor Rob: it's something we don't know.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 7/Apr/16
Imo Shaq loses height in the second staredown and the high camera angle makes the real gap look even less.

during the first staredown Shaq is visible straightening his back and gains clear height doing that, no less than 2inches taller than Big Show.

Show had pretty chunky soles on his boots, but I doubt there was much footwear difference.




Rob, what do you think about their footwear?

James B said on 7/Apr/16
In JTs pic shaq doesn't look over 7ft but maybe his posture is not good?
miko said on 7/Apr/16
Given Shaq had footwear advantage the difference between them was closer to an inch. I only managed to have a brief look previously

Show looked tall, if you say Shaq is still close to 7'1, then Show isn't under 6'11 and likely a tad over when standing tall.
mrtguy said on 6/Apr/16
Rob, wouldn't you rather want to see Big Show and Shaq back to back with no shoes on??
Editor Rob: it would be a good sight to see Big Show try to stand at maximum posture.

Show stacked up well to Shaq again at WM 32. If Shaq is 7,1" Show looked every bit of 6,11"

Shaq was measured 7´0.63" and 7´0.88" barefoot.

So 6´11" is pretty fair for Big Show today, 6´10.5" is my choice.

Big Show definitely lost height compared to his WCW time, at least an inch.



Rob, do you think their footwear gives the same height and is Shaq still peak in your book?
NCL said on 5/Apr/16
Here are some really good examples of how Big Show's posture can make him look so much shorter. Here is with bad posture with Strowman: Click Here and here is standing up straight: Click Here BIG difference

Here is Big Show at Wrestlemania with 7'1" Shaq at Wrestlemania Click Here and a shot of their footwear Click Here

Shaq is really hard to tell cuz of the design of his sneakers, but they appear to be basketball shoes. Probably equal to Show's footwear I'm guessing.

What do you think guys. 2" difference? 2.5" at most?

My best guess - Show 7' peak, 610.5" or 6'11" currently. Not sure which one. Show 7'0.5"-7'1" in boots and Shaq 7'3" in basketball sneakers.

Strowman - best guess is 6'7.5" barefoot and 6'10" in boots. He wears pretty big clunkers Click Here which would explain his close height to Kane Click Here Strowman wore flatter shoes when he first debuted Click Here
Ice said on 5/Apr/16
You can tell by his head size that his height isnt natrual . He has giantism . All the NBA players that are 6'11-7'6" have got porportionateley small heads , they have that normal - persons - head - screwed - onto - a - huge - body look
Alex 6'0 said on 4/Apr/16
At wm 32 with 7'1 Shaq, big show was minimum 2 inches shorter. 6'11 tops today
RoelC said on 4/Apr/16

From last night's Wrestlemania. The first pic shows about a 2 inch difference. The second maybe 1 inch.
Big Show is holding his own pretty well against the Shaq. Between 2009 and 2016 he definately lost no height.
mrtguy said on 4/Apr/16
miko said on 4/Apr/16
Show wasn't standing great with Shaq but looked a solid 2 inches.



Shaq was wearing Reebok pumps his height of course fluctuated to 7'2'', while Big Show is probably 7 feet range. IMO Big Show didn't lose any height since his last stare down with Shaq which was probably 6 years back.

mrtguy- Come on dude claiming and actually being '6'8' are 2 completely different things. The guy with big show looks 6'7 if big show is 6'10.5 today.

to be fair if show really is still 6'11 then I can see the guy in the photo being 6'7.5 but the full 6'8 looks looks extreme.
Lars said on 4/Apr/16
The picture with Big Show & Shaq when Shaq first entered the ring, it looked obvious that Shaq was taller but clearly Show's posture (as usual) was pretty bad. I really feel like if we had Big Show circa WCW in that ring facing off with Shaq, it would have been dead even.

In the later stand off when it was just the 2 of them in the ring, they looked a lot more even. I really think the shoes Shaq, like basketball shoes normally do, were giving him an advantage plus he had really nice posture. I personally know 2 guys, one is 6'6'' and the other 6'7'', who ran into Big Show and both said they felt he was a legit 7-foot dude.

Big Show looked 2" inches shorter than Shaq last night @ Wrestlemania 32....1.5" at the very least. Closer to 2" tho.
Height ain't nothin' said on 4/Apr/16
I saw Paul Wight in New York......I am 6'9" morning, Afternoon and night. My brother is a legit 6'10" guy. we both were shorter then Paul he is a 7'0" no doubt. Had flat black shoes on. My brother and I sneakers. We also have met Shaq he is a legit 7'0" guy too. BUT paul is the only man who makes my brother and I feel normal body wise. I am 330 and my brother about the same. We work out heavily.

Rob, look at this pic the guy next to Big Show claims 6'8''. It's been a long time since Big Show's posture is looking really good the chances are he's full 7'0'', in addition they're footwear is not much different Click Here

Well that was nearly 18 years ago so no surprise he looked taller then. He's probably close to 2 inches shorter today than he was in that video you posted.
NTRAJ said on 1/Apr/16
@Ryan Hancock Braun Strowman has exceptionally good posture whereas Big Show tends to slouch quite a bit, shrinking his height down to the 6'8"-6'10" range; when Big Show straightens his back--usually when he needs to accentuate his height over another wrestler--he reaches his 6'11" height.
Boss said on 1/Apr/16
Well Wilt in his 40's was taller than a peak Shaq and Shaq was taller than Big Show. Wilt would have been taller than Big Show in WCW barefoot.

Rob, do ever think Big Show could appear or pass as 7'4'' in WCW, factoring long hair, boots and straight posture??

I watched sold out 1998 on the internet not too long and I thought at times there could look more than 2.5 between him and Kevin Nash (that's just my perception though).

7ft4 seems impossible for big show.

Actually Shaq was nearly 2 inches taller. If Shaq is 6'11.5" Big Show could be a solid 6'10". If Shaq is actually 7 feet tall Big Show is 6'10.5". I'd go with a flat 6'10" for Big Show.

That is 11 inches, if not even more, Big Show has a very large head even for his size. Common Alex 6'0'' there's no way Big Show lost 2'' yet he's only 44 years old. The lowest I'd give him is probably 6'11-6'11.5'' evening height and maybe as high as 7'0.5-7'1'' out of bed.

Rob I remember danimal posted a video of lex Luger and big show from 1997 and there looked 8.5 inches max between the 2.

Could you make an argument for 6'3.5 for Luger maybe? I think most agree that's it's unlikely big show was under 7ft peak.
________________________________________________________________

Late 80's Lugar was coming down the aisle, and stiff armed my friend when he tried to pat him on the shoulder. Sent my friend flying over the folding chairs. My friend was around 6'6", and I was 6'3" maybe a tick more at the time. Lugar was a lot shorter than my friend, and I felt he was also slightly shorter than me ,but he was moving fast. I don't see a peak Lugar more than 6'3". Although he appears a little taller than Hacksaw Jim Duggan in video's, who I stood right behind in line at an airport and thought was about my height, Duggan probably had on boots to my shoes though.

Rob, do you think Big Show can wake up at 7'1'' and also do you think he can lose 2 inches?
Editor Rob: with any guy near 7ft, there is more chance of losing a greater amount than merely average people...so I wouldn't rule out the chance some extremely tall humans can shrink 2 inches.
A man said on 12/Feb/16
I doubt that he ever hit the 7 foot mark barefoot. 6,11" and a bit.

Reason being is that he IS looking under 6.11" these days and I simply can't believe he has lost more than an inch.

And I did say barefoot. Obviously he hit 7" in shoes.

James B said on 4/Feb/16
I wonder rob at his peak could have big show dropped to 6'11.5 range at night?
Editor Rob: it would be interesting to find any of these big guys actually say what height out of bed they measure...I wonder how many have ever tested an out of bed height.

The difference in height between Show and Strowman at the Rumble looked the same as it did a few weeks ago...
James B said on 1/Feb/16
Rob I remember danimal posted a video of lex Luger and big show from 1997 and there looked 8.5 inches max between the 2.

Could you make an argument for 6'3.5 for Luger maybe? I think most agree that's it's unlikely big show was under 7ft peak.
Editor Rob: you could argue around 6ft 3-4 range

Show was 3" taller than Strowman.

Show - 6'11"
Strowman - 6'7"(6'8" with lifts)
miko said on 30/Jan/16
I'd go with Undertaker hitting a flat 6'7, Kane maybe a hair over 6'7.

Strowman is 6'7.5/6'8 and Show is 6'11.

@John

Kane is the tallest of those three. Strowman with lifts was the same height as Kane even but Strowman had posture advantage too.

Kane - 6'7.5"
Undertaker - 6'7"
Strowman - 6'7"
miko said on 29/Jan/16
Remember that Big Show only reaches his full height in military posture, chest out, back straight (Khali/Shaq staredowns). Anything less than that and he'll look shorter.
John said on 28/Jan/16
@James B

Either Kane, Strowman or Undertaker. Hard to guess who would be the tallest out of those 3.

I think either Kane or strowman are the second tallest wrestler in the WWE roster at the moment?

If he is 6 '6.25" barefoot, he may reaches or nearly 6'8" in basketball shoes, high sole of 3cm to 4cm.

Big Show has no big footwear disadvantage there, his sole looks even bigger than Strowmans sole.
Strowman may have an inside lift but in total I doubt he has more than 0.5-0.75" footwearadvantage.

Strowman should be 6´8.5" in his footwear and Show 6´11". No doubt Big Show would gain an inch standing straight so 7´0" in footwear is possible, 6´10.5"-6´11" without.

A Man said on 15/Jan/16
Here are the facts that we actually have:

In the photo with 6,8" billed Brian Shaw, Strowman (Adam Scherr) looked maybe 1/4 to 1/2 an inch shorter than Brian. Hard to say exactly, but Brian definitely looks to shade him.

Brian Shaw is photographed numerous times with Hafthor Bjornsson, in all photos looking 1/4 to 1/2 an inch shorter than him.

Rob has Bjornsson on this site and a picture of himself with Thor, and his deduction was 6,7.75" which looks about right.

So realistically Strowman is going to be hovering around 6,6.5" to 6,7"

Strowman looked well within 2 inches of Big Show in their staredown.

In Big Show's staredown with Shaq, he looked every bit of 6,11" assuming Shaq is 7,1" (of which there is plenty of photographic evidence, most prominently the photo of him next to the Robert Wadlow statue which has him bang on 7,1")

Strowman looked identical in height to Kane, and shades Undertaker slightly.

My personal opinion, Strowman is 6,7" on the dot the same as Kane. Taker is just a shade under both. Strowman is wearing lifts in his staredown with Big Show in WWE's attempt to make him appear a giant. How tall Show is today is impossible to say. I seriously doubt he has lost any height since he went toe to toe with Shaq.

That's my conclusion, draw your own. Tracing it back to the pic of Hafthor Bjornsson with Rob is the best evidence there is though.
James B said on 15/Jan/16
alex- strowman had posture and footware advantage over big show in there staredown I think.

There is a pic of strowman with now 6'6-6'6.5 undertaker where he does not look over 6'7 and that's with his big wrestling boots and brilliant posture

James B, from his debut in 95 til around 2000-2002 he looked a solid 7'0 guy. Slowly looked to shrink as time went on. He surely doesn't look over 6'11 today and could argue that he's more in the 6'10-6'10.5 range

Those photos of Show with Matt Morgan are interesting. In the side-on photos where he is slouched he looks barely 6,10", but in the shots where they are facing the camera with Jones and Lesnar and Show is standing straight, you could believe 7 foot.

While bearing in mind those pics are from 2003, you could see Show getting maybe another 1.5" on Strowman if he stood up properly.

Perhaps WWE is on a mission to make Strowman seem more impressive. Who knows...

Nick cantan said on 9/Jan/16
Strowman's hair is deceiving. Maybe 2.5" difference, bearing in mind a 6'11 Big show is slouching badly so probably around 6'10.5" and Strowman's really standing straight, makes Strowman around 6'7.5" - 6'8" max with the inner lifts. Probably around 6'6.5" normally.

Click Here

This angle is wear Big Show is awaiting his attack from Wyatt from behind so he's slouching forward more to anticipate this so probably 6'10ish.

Click Here

This is not a great angle but staredown between Kane and Big show, probably not hugely different to the Strowman staredown.

If Big show stood better it wouldn't look so odd!

I don't know really, after looking at the staredown with Strowman there doesn't seem to be more than 2 inches between the two... Angle was perfectly fine it was just that Show wasn't that much taller, yes at first I thought Steowman looked the same height or taller but then from the side view I paused it and top of Show's head is still 1.5 - 2inches higher, which begs the question again, it doesn't add up its either Show isn't even 6'11 anymore and more close to the 6'9 range or Strowman's close to 6'10???
Maybe today Show is 6'9.5 and Strowman 6'7.5 with Kane shrinking slightly and down to 6'7 flat with taker at 6'6.5
Always wondered why show looked so short compared to Shaq.



Big Show never looked short next to Shaq, they could have been around the same height, keep in mind look at the difference in weight, Big Show is heavier and Shaq looks slim. Big Show would need to fully stretch to look as tall as Shaq.
James B said on 8/Jan/16
I give strowman 6'6.5 since he only had 1.5-2 inches on 6'4.5-6'5 Luke harper when he was not in his big wrestling boots.

Before you call me out on 6'6 1/2 for strowman lets not understimate guys how tall a 6'6.5 man with a monstrous build can look on TV.

People don't realise how tall a 6'6 range guy is.

The only disadvantage mark Henry had against big show was the fact he a lot shorter at 6'3.

Mark Henry manhandled Daniel Bryan who himself is a bulky robust fella. I reckon if Bryan was taller like CM punks height he could have held his own better against Henry.
A man said on 2/Jan/16
Show was extremely fat at that time. So what if he was 550 lbs? I'd bank that he was stronger when he looked about 400-450 in 1999.

And Lesnar confirmed himself that the only guy in the locker room who he couldn't beat in an arm wrestle was Kane. In the interview he even mentions Show by name, and how he still managed to beat him despite Show having fingers like bananas.

Mark Henry is also certainly stronger than Show, as he formerly competed in strongman events at an elite level.

Show is of course bigger boned than Kane. Show is an acromegalic giant, Kane is just genetically big.

--------------------------


Big Show was huge in 2006, had to be at least 550 LBS, if not even more Click Here of course, Big Show is stronger than Kane naturally. There was probably no one in the locker room who could single handily take on Big Show, but there are exceptions like Mark Henry.

But nowadays he apear noticeably shorter. But his posture is very poor. A 6'10" or just over man wih hisbuild is a very, very large man. I have seen 6'10" and 7' people and can judge for myself. Saw big show to and his size is mind boggling. But like andre over billed. I doubt the even taller khali is much over 6'11". Very large nevertheless. Dont take the stuff so seriously man .

If you think Big Show is clearly 6'10', than guys like Kareem Abdul Jabbar are barely 7ft (IMO). to be honest by looking at the picture of Big Show in comparison of 7'2'' Kareem Abdul Jabbar it certainly looks less than 2 inches in height. Big Show is minimum 6'11'' josey, have you ever seen him next a self proclaimed 6'11'' guy, it was not too long ago. Big Show edged him. You can make statements that he's 6'10'' cause clearly Big Show's taller than you. Of course, you have no idea what it's like being that tall so it's okay for you to say he's 6'10''.

Big shows height can be duffucult to call. I remember when he debut in wwe in '99. He simply dearfed everybody. He had long hair that fluffed on a very large head, a high shoulderline and good posture. He was clearly taller than the traditional company bigmen like taker n kane . But what really set him appart was his build that really typified what most folks associated with a giant. While much better than andre's very large but sloppy build he disnt have a bodybuilders physique. Just a very large syructure and huge hands civered by thick muscle. It was very beleuvable by wwf/e to bill him as 7'2" given thet billed big hee wearing kane as 7'. Nowadays that size and losing muscle mass/pot belly look works against him as he looks crouched often. His posrure is definately going. He can easily gain 2" by straitening up. That all said id go for a peak height of nearly 7' and nowadays closer to 6'10". He clearly is losing height. All in all a good speciman to portray as a giant to his combination of height and body size.

Rob 6'10.5 possible now?
Editor Rob: you couldn't rule that possibility out.

Big Show is clearly taller than a 6'11'' person. He can't be under 6'11''. Also, if you compare Big Show today to Andre the Giant who I thought was not taller than 6'10'' in his late years, Big Show would easily come out taller.

Not really sure what the mystery is regarding Big Shows height nilling throughout the years. He was billed as 7 feet 5 in WCW, that changed to 7 feet 2 in WWF, then gradually down to 7 feet in WWE. His weight was also grossly exaggerated over the years, it wasn't til around 2006-ish that he was at a legit 500lbs plus and looked it, seemed very bloated yet this was the weight wwe were billing him at when he was noticeably slimmer when he debuted in the WWF in February 1999. Its just typical the typical wrestling routine of adding height and weight to performers, especially those on the taller end of the scale

The loss of his hair also takes away from his height as people generally factor in the hair as being part of the height, or at least they do subconsciously, also the fact that he got heavier over the years made him look less "gangly" compared to when he started in WCW and made him appear a bit less taller. As has already been said its likely he has lost height from being in wrestling since 95 or thereabouts.
James B said on 24/Dec/15
Legit 7ft in wcw by 2000 he was starting creep into the 6'11.5-6'11.75 range.
mrtguy said on 24/Dec/15
Rob, btw Big Show is an exceptional athlete for someone with gigantism/acromegaly alongside gheorge mursean.
LoganNoll1996 said on 23/Dec/15
Peak was 7'0" MAX. If he really was 7'1" - 7'2" like some people are saying then so was Andre cause both of these guys were the same height.
mrtguy said on 22/Dec/15
Rob, you really think he's 6'10''? by now. No chance if he is really that tall guys like Kareem Abdul Jabber need a downgrade too. Click Here

Rob 6'10.5 possible now?

mrtguy said on 21/Dec/15
Rob, I doubt that Big Show lost height. Yeah he can look as low 6'10'', but that doesn't mean he's that tall. I think his terrible posture and HUGE mass frame is making him appear shorter than he really is. I still think 6'11-7'' is arguable now. Prime easily 7'1'' maybe even 7'2'' in WCW.
Editor Rob: a guy like Show at 43 who has been involved in wrestling for like 15 years...I would be stunned if he hadn't lost any height.

Rob how can big show arms be listed only 21 inch and kali 24 inch if big show arms are bigger then kali ?

Editor Rob: I don't know if they really properly measure dimensions like that or just state them as that amount.


Mark Henry's arms are the biggest of the two.
mrtguy said on 19/Dec/15
Rob, shouldn't Big Show's standing height be 6'11'' and projected height 7''?
Editor Rob: well I think he still kind of looks 6ft 10-11 range, how much he can gain when standing tall for a measurement is the key argument.

Alex 6'0 said on 24/Jan/15
JT in that shot its easily 14 inches and that's with her in heels too.

Alex, In my opinions that's more than 14 inches, possibly 16 inches don't forget Big Show's head is 12 inches Click Here
Big Show looks 7 ft there. This shot is very similar to how Rob stacked to Ian Whyte just a bit shorter give or take an inch.
6'2 said on 4/Dec/15
I think 7'1 peak just under 7ft today
mrtguy said on 3/Dec/15
Rob, to be honest I still think Big Show can measure 7 ft, that's if he shed lbs and improves his posture .
James B said on 1/Dec/15
But rocks posture is very relaxed rob
mrtguy said on 29/Nov/15
Rob, isn't it quite ironic how Big Show and Khali would match up to each other like this? :Click Here The only difference is those 8 footers are both each a Foot taller than the two. I'd say that the bald guy in the left next to Sultan is 12'' taller than Big Show barefoot, and as for Khali i'd say Sultan is 12 maybe 13'' taller barefoot??. For weight, I'd reckon that Sultan and that guy probably weigh 300 lbs at most since there really thin. While Big Show and Khali weigh well over 350+ lbs. Click Here Click Here
James B said on 28/Nov/15
Just curious rob how tall does big bossman look compared to the rock here?
Click Here

If the rock was 6'3.25 peak then big bossman does look a legit 6'5 in comparison but then the rocks posture seems much more relaxed.
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have thought BB was anything less than 6ft 5 there
mrtguy said on 28/Nov/15
Seriously, why do people these days downgrade Big Show? every site I go on people always comment that he's either "6'9" or "6'10"that's absurd, Big Show's head size is freakin 12 inches it's bigger than the average 7 footer and possibly longer than the world's tallest man.
He's minimum 6'11'' possibly 7 foot on a good day. If his head was proportional I could agree he would be in the 6'10'' range.
JT said on 6/Apr/15
mike says on 3/Apr/15
@JT ...from that pic... I do believe show is 6'10" (if you draw your lines along him and 6'3" #64

He does “look” 6’10” b/c the size of his head makes him appear shorter (the jaw extends down much farther than the “normal” head of a guy of Show’s height, which makes it appear like the gap is smaller than it really is). Click Here If you were to give Big Show the same size head as the 6’3” guy (still probably at least 10" long), you can see the difference it makes. Click Here

JT makes a good point he can look 6'10'',but he ain't that low. (IMO)
Tarinator said on 28/Nov/15
Peak heights: Kane was 204 cm (now 203 cm), Kevin Nash was 208 cm (now 206 cm), Viscera was 200 cm, the Undertaker was 202-3 cm (now 201 cm), the Big Show was 213 cm (now 210-11 cm), Psycho Sid was 199 cm (now 197-98 cm), The Great Khali was 216 cm, Wade Barrett is 197-198 cm, Jack Swagger is 196 -197 cm, Matt Morgan is 204 cm, Nathan Jones is 208 cm, Strowman could be around 200 cm, Hulk Hogan was 198 cm (now 192-3 cm), as Tyler Mane could hit 203 cm spot on.

Rob, do u think wwe are making big show wear big wrestling boots to make him still seem like he is the worlds largest athelete?
Editor Rob: I've not looked at them up close
mrtguy said on 21/Nov/15
Rob, can you agree that Big Show could wake up at 7'1'' maybe with sneakers?
Editor Rob: yeah, although I'd be worried if anybody wore sneakers to bed ;)
scott said on 19/Nov/15
I always thought big show was about 7ft no suprise hrs taller than most people aniway
A man said on 17/Nov/15
It was odd how they went from billing him at 7,2" from his debut in 1999 until some time in 2002 when they suddenly started just saying he was 7 feet.

Accounting for a genuine loss in height perhaps?
James B said on 12/Nov/15
Rob back in 2000 when I was a kid at school me and my friends were WWE mad. I do remember though at the time we all commented on how big show seemed to have shrunk in height like he was put in a washing machine or something lol.

Could have big show started to lose height even back then?
Editor Rob: it's hard to pinpoint when big show might have begun to lose a fraction, but even 5 years in wrestling for big guys could have some sort of impact on discs.

Rob, do you think Igor looks closer to 7'8" or 7'11"? Apparently, when he was in Australia in 2012 being interviewed "a story on Igor...revealed him to now be over 243cm tall", but I haven't come across anything that backs that claim up. Next to 6'10"/6'11 Pekovic, Igor doesn't look 7'11" to me.
[Editor Rob: doesn't look 7ft 11 or near it.]

Igor looks gigantic, I think 7'8.33 (235 cm) is his barefoot height flat feet other than that, he looks 7'10''easily (w/shoes depending on footwear,soles,etc...)@Frederik I'm not sure how much Igor weighs probably as much as Big Show currently, but he looks more monstrous and imposing than 2006 Big Show. (Height wise)

Click Here he really can pass as an 8 footer in that clip.
mrtguy said on 11/Nov/15
Rob, do you think Big Show is closer to Ian's or Thor's height?
Editor Rob: soon he may be in the middle of them...
Frederik said on 10/Nov/15
Big Show was a monstrous size in 2005-06. I was watching the HIAC match with DX and the McMahons from 2006 and he had put on a massive amount of timber, huge arms and legs with a big ass beer gut on him! A giant in every sense
RKV said on 10/Nov/15
Shaq is about 7'0.5 peak, and show is about 1.75 inches shorter. I think about 6'10.5 peak.

Alex 6'0 said on 18/Aug/15
Big Show had gotten up to a legit 530lbs I had read in 2006. He was billed at 507lbs though! He was billed at 500lbs for years when he was in the lower 400s. Last several years they finally bill him at 440-450 which he is prob is anyway.
------------------------
Yeah in 2005-6 he easily looked 200+ lbs heavier than Kane, I know kane is a big guy, but Big Show dwarfed him in size.
Click Here Big Show's arms look twice as Big
Marcus said on 29/Oct/15
If you look at the first staredown between Shaq and Big Show both two use dress shoe, and if you look at the second, Big Show use his wrestling ring shoe and Shaq use Nike Running Shoe or something.. And I know that Nike shoes heels are 1.4 inches (3,5 cm) tall heels. So dress shoes are same height :)
James B said on 28/Oct/15
Looked more than 1 inch between him and shaq
Nyc said on 27/Oct/15
Big show had that stare down with shaq and looked spot on 7 ft assuming shaq is indeed 7'1". Hard to say definitively because of the shoe factor but the estimates of 6'9" or 6'10" are ridiculous unless he wears lifts. I would imagine it would be hard to wrestle in lifts though.

Big Slow is closer to 6'9. I meet him in Orlando last year at Wrestle Com.


Yeah I do believe that you have met big show despite the fact there a lot of bs stories about celeb encounters on this site, but I think him looking 6'9 is probably poor posture. He still is a fair bit taller than Kane today who is a legit 6'7 now who was not far of 6'8 at peak.

You got a pic with big show?

JT, here's a full shot Click Here apparently the big guy claims 6'9'' and the guy next to him is personal trainer who is 5'5',' would you say he's near Big Show's size?

The other guy is 5’5” and not very good posture? Not close in height and probably weighs less too since he's morbidly obese and not muscular. Click Here Rob has Dean Cain at 5’11.5” but he does not look that tall with Big Show, who’s not peak height here, so I made Cain around 6’0” in shoes.

Click Here IIRC Rob’s friend measured 6’5.25” even though he looks an easy 6’6” in his pics with Rob.

Taker looked over 6'7.5 with Scott hall in the early 90s however not sure if hall was more 6'4.5 than 6'5. But compared to guys like Sid he didn't look a full 6'8.

It's irrelevant to me how tall taker he looked compared to guys like Albert because his height is height has not officially listed on this site.

Vegas said on 10/Oct/15
here is the video of that big show and taker staredown from 1999..as you can see taker is quite a bit shorter, the low camera angle of the photo makes it look alot closer.

Yes its true Vegas, that pic was for footware comparison, big show had quite bigger footware in ring gear, unlike the video I first posted, so that´s not their real height difference either.
IMO taker was 6'8 peak and big show 7".
mrtguy said on 11/Oct/15
Strongman said on 2/Oct/15
Undertaker had noticeably larger footwear in the stare down with big show. Remember, these in ring stare downs are a chance for the company to exhibit their billed heights for the fans to see. In this case, they wanted to show how tall Undertakers 6'10" character was to be portrayed next to a 7"-7'2" giant. They did a pretty good job, seeing as they made it look like a true 6'7" Taker appeared to be 6'10" next to a 7'0" flat Big Show in the given scenario.

I'd wager Big Show's peak height barefoot was 6'11" roughly. He's probably more like 6'10" barefoot these days.

Big Show 6'10'' ??? PLEASE. Strongman, be real a 6'10" Big Show would downgrade LEGIT 7fters like Shaq, Khali and even Kareem Abdul Jabber ~7'2'' Click Here
As for the peak Big Show was 7'0.5. Yeah today he does struggle to look 7 ft but he is not 6'10'' and that's for sure.
