Akebono supposedly measured 6'8-3/8" barefoot? That makes a 6'11-1/2" barefoot Paul Wight .


If Akebono was still that height after years of 500+lbs, not impossible he was 6´7.5"-6´8" even without heightloss if his measurement was a morning measurement.
In JT´s pic Akebono looks 1.75" taller than Haystacks but has a footwear advantage ~0.5" . Haystacks imo was 6´6" or a tad over back then, so Akebono comes out a weak 6´8"-6´7.5".

6´11" or a tad more is Big Shows peakheight, today he looks 6´10.5"max and solid 2"-2.5" shorter than 7´0.5"-7´0.75" Shaq.
If Big Show wears his Big Boots he can give the Illusion of being only 1.5" shorter than Shaq.

I just want to say for the record that I think Show was around 7' barefoot and is around 6'10" now. He has maybe lost 1.5". I wouldn't rule out a 7'1" peak Shaq.

@CaptainBeastxxx As far as i can tell, Mountain may not be as tall as The Big Show. But he is 400 lbs of muscle, and Big Show is 450 lbs of fat with probably a bit of muscle in him. Which makes him faster than an average guy who is his weight, believe it or not. But he's not so athletic now as he used to be. Mountain could probably win against Big Show today, but beating The Big Show's past incarnation is currently unknown (when he was 7 feet tall and 500 lbs)
Joe said on 22/Jul/16
@CaptainBeastxxx

Big Show certainly has a much larger frame and likely much greater potential for strength than Hafthor does. But Hafthor is currently stronger since he trains for strength and takes far more steroids and HGH than the Big Show does. I think Shaq and Big Show could have dominated strongman if they had focused on it.

I'm not sure that Shaq should have been downgraded by an inch while Big Show stayed at 6'11'' -- I think a conservative estimate is that there are two inches between them.

Rob, who do you think is stronger Big Show or Mountain?? in you opinion
For all I know Big Show has thicker and overall larger hands

Akebono supposedly measured 6'8-3/8" barefoot? That makes a 6'11-1/2" barefoot Paul Wight ...check out the sumo match video & pics. But, I admit...it looks as if Paul Wight has lost 0.5" to 0.75" since that match. Maybe even. Full 1" inch. But, he was every bit of 6'11.5" barefoot in the early to mid 2000's

There’s no point posting a screen shot where the high camera angle favors Shaq. Click Here So Tatanka is really 6’9” and Kane 7’3”? Make Big Show a little farther from the camera and now they're about the same height. Click Here This was about as good as it got from that match. Click Here

___________

Tatanka and Kane look taller because they're in the background. Shaq and Show are actually lined up with each other so it makes the comparison much more valid. Just like how the difference between Kane and Tatanka is accurate because they're lined up with each other. Also, the low camera angle at the ESPYs showed the same difference between Shaq and Show. Again, there is no way you can honestly say that Shaq doesn't have at least 2" on Show. If Shaq is a legit 7'1", then it is POSSIBLE that Show could be 6'11", but if Shaq is really only 7', then come on. Is anyone going to look at them from Wrestlemania or the ESPYs and say there is only 1" between them? Come on now. That is like some kind of joke.
Strong 5ft9 said on 20/Jul/16
Rob, i think it's safe to say that The Big Show has shrunk to 6'10" nowadays (possibly underneath that mark, but not so sure). I cannot possibly see an inch difference between him and Shaq, if Shaq is really 7 feet tall. Here's another video showing the difference between the two men. Click Here
He maybe slouching, but there is no way he could be an inch shorter than him if he's standing up straight.
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@Dicksock: my bad you are correct and that's what I meant to say that Shaq had 3" on show. Some say it's as much as 4" but I think it's due to angle and bad posture for Show. You're right in some pics but in others from around the mid to late 2000s Shaq only had maybe 1.5" on him. Of course Show may have lost height as he has horrendous posture but my point too is more to Show having lost than Shaq being over 7'0. They corrected his measurement to show he was 7' 5/8 or 7/8 with shoes on and he's an easy 2" shorter than Kareem and shorter than Mutombo or even Wilt. And Show doesn't always stand straight snd prob can't these days. I honestly don't know how tall Show was in his prime. But Shaq if he wasn't a full on 7'0 tall at his lowest he was at least 6'11.75 and can't see him drop below that in the afternoon but he looks 7'. I would've guessed Show at 6'11" prime and maybe he lost height. I guess he could've also potentially been a legit 7'0 as well but knowing how many of the big wrestlers have been exaggerated such as Tyler Mane (they used to say he was 6'10) but he's 6'7" based on the pics these days on his page. Of course an easy chance at 6'8 in his prime at worst maybe 6'7.5-.75 and he doesn't know he's lost height when he met Ali Baba. Undertaker is another. I have no doubts he would've been 6'7+ in his prime as well. Even tho he is more like 199cm 6'6.5 these days but his physique is of someone that could've been 201-203. The verdict is out on Nash. He can look 6'9 or just shy of it still sometimes but likely he's in the 6'8 ranfe 204-205 these days as well. These wrestlers have taken beatings to where some of the listed barefoot heights (not exaggerated heights) may put them really at a peak. My pic may not be the best but there are similar ones between the two out there showing minimal diff at times and maybe 2-3 at others

I don’t see much difference in the footwear either. Click Here Big Show wrestled in that match so he was not moving around in 3 inch heels. In the ESPYs videos with Shaq, you could make the case that he looked as low as 6’8” so we know it’s poor evidence to gauge his height.

Akebono measured 6’8 1/3” for sumo. Even if he’d lost a little height by then, his posture is better than Big Show’s Click Here Click Here

___________________

Of course that guy has Acromegaly. Look at his head, hands and feet. He has, by far, the biggest head I've ever seen. His head would make Andre's look small. It's got to be like 14" long! That's got to be one of the scariest guys I've ever seen.
heightchecker34 said on 19/Jul/16
Maybe its because Im a Big Show mark... but I think he was a peak 7 ft guy (213 cm) and now is hovering at the 6'10'5-6'11 mark. Unbelievable athlete for his size and weight, and a lot of fans take him for granted. With all due respect to Andre, (even in his younger days), Big Show does a lot of things a man that size should never be able to do! A future Hall of Famer and arguably the greatest giant to ever step foot in a ring.

Big Show was more than 5’5” taller than Haystacks Click Here and was about 4 inches taller than Akebono Click Here it’s about 5’5” from his eyes up.

****************************************


Noway, what does your high camera angle bad quality pic with Haystacks prove?
Big Show has his eyeline raised bigtime, it´s no more than 3" between him and Akebono, who has to be a legit 6´8" to make Big Show even 6´11"

They stand side by side at a red carpet... no uneven ground, it only proves Shaq´s shoes in ring are not as big as Big Shows.
Shaqs son can look a weak 6´8" too,so he´s not proved 6´9"


During there WM face of there´s a brief moment when Shaq stretches out his back and the gap is close to the red carpet vid,
put both barefoot so Big Show loses his 0.5"-0.75" footwearadvantage and it´s about 3inches between them. Click Here

___________________

Here is probably the best quality shot of them together at WM.
Click Here

Shaq has just about as much height on him there as he did at the ESPYs. There is no footwear advantage and really Shaq could be standing straighter. If Shaq is not even 7'1" legit, how can Show possibly 6'11"? If we were talking about Andre, you would be the first one to claim that Andre looks 6'9" next to Shaq. But, because it's Big Show, you are making all kinds of excuses. Even in their first encounter in 2009, Shaq had several inches on Show when Show wasn't in his super thick boots that he wore with his suit. Those were the equivalent of Andre's cowboy boots with Wilt. When the two had equal footwear later during Big Show's match, Shaq looked at least 2" taller. Show may have been close to 7' in his prime, but it has been made abundantly clear that he is in the 6'10" range now.

Does anyone know Ron Reis (Yeti in WCW) height?

He was billed 7´2", managed by Big John Studd who was around 6´6" back then he looked 6-6.5" taller, so he´s a strong 7 Footer.
To me he looked taller than Big Show in his big boots.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 17/Jul/16
Click Here max 6´11" with 6´7"-6´7.5" Undertaker
Click Here about 3" taller than max 6´8" Akebono, both barefoot and the gap is less Click Here Click Here


Click Here Peak Show next to John Tenta, old Andre next to John Tenta, no doubt who the real overall giant is.

Click Here Old Haystacks was 6´6"-6´6.5" at this age, Big Show has him by 5.5" but has 1-1.5" more footwear. Click Here
Haystacks was already diagnosed with cancer there and was passing a giant torch to Paul, they did everything to make Big Show as tall as he could look.

The myth of 7´0" legit WCW Big Show is proven WRONG, when he came to WWE they had him at 7ft , later at near 7ft very often

- not a billing of a true 7 footer, a true 7footer wouldn´t be billed under 7´2"-3" as a main eventer




Rob, 6´11" peak and max 6´10" today, regarding the big in ring footwear for Show?

Great find, but Show is much closer to the camera, look at where Shows Eyes come up to Shaqs face,
thats at least 2.5 inches Shaq has on Show and Show is stretching out for the pic.


Rob, imo there´s no "ground effect", look at Shaqs son beside them, Shaqs height on Big Show is still shocking.

I don't see where people are getting that Big Show is 3" taller than Shaq.

Who has said that Big Show is 3" taller than Shaq? It's the other way around. If you watch the new video of them where Show challenges Shaq to a match, Shaq looks 3" or so taller throughout most of the video.
Lars said on 16/Jul/16
Big Show has his massive weight, consistent bad posture, and the angle working horrible for him in the Shaq video on the red carpet.

I honestly feel like Shaq was over 7'1'' that night. I assume his dress shoes have to be customized for his massive feat. Here is a picture of him with his 6'9'' son, who's hair was tied up that night as well, adding to his height. Shaq's posture is great and his heels look kinda big.

I don't see where people are getting that Big Show is 3" taller than Shaq. In 2009 when they faced it was roughly 1.5" then the other pic Big Show had horrendous posture while Shaq stood straight. My guess is if Big Show stood straight he's still around 210 cm (6'10.25-.5) Shaq is prob still 6'11.5-7' more like 6'11.75-.85.

Is looking 6'10 tops
Maybe bring down his actual height a bit would be fine
What you think ?
Editor Rob: at the event a few months back in the ring, he did look a couple of inches smaller than shaq
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 16/Jul/16
Peak Big Show wasn´t 7ft evening - no chance.

Only for morningheight.
He clearly looked 6´11" next to John Tenta and old Giant Haystacks. He never looked more than 4" taller than 6´7" Undertaker.
Today I give him no more than 209-210cm.
mrtguy said on 16/Jul/16
Rob, where would Big Show be up to a 7'9'' guy?? Click Here
Editor Rob: probably somewhere above his chin near to mouth, considering the guy has a head a couple of inches or so bigger than average, and if Show was down nearer 6ft 10 today.

There's no way Big Show was under 7' back then in the WCW when he was around 400lbs ( or maybe 380ish ) ..
He looked absolutely huge and I remember him looking 3 inches taller than Nash..
Also remember him being billed 7'3 back then so there you have it if you substract the mandatory 2 inches exaggeration for big men in wrestling.

______________

He was billed as 7'4" in WCW bro... Even in WCW, he was shorter than 7'1" Ron Reis (The Yeti). His basketball listing was probably him in big sneakers. He may have been close to 7' in his prime, but he always wore thick heels to make him look taller. Right now, he is probably no more than 6'10". Shaq probably isn't even a legit 7'1", and he has at least 3" on Show. He may be closer to 6'11" out of bed.
James B said on 14/Jul/16
Big show was probably measured with shoes on at 7ft1 in basketball.

No way was he 7'1 barefoot cause even shaq isn't that big
184guy said on 14/Jul/16
Defo more than 1 inch shorter than Shaq this week
dicksock said on 14/Jul/16
Rob, you MUST WATCH this video:
Click Here

I am shocked. Big Show looks very short next to 7'1" MAX Shaq. Shaq may even be a little under 7'1", and he towers Show. It is officially time to downgrade Show to 6'10". I never thought I'd say that, but Rob you must admit that this video pretty much proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Show is under 6'11". Pause at the 19 second mark for probably the best comparison.
Editor Rob: if the ground is level yes he looks at most 6ft 10 there.

search on Youtube : "Big Show challenges Shaq to a match at WrestleMania" or Link : Click Here
I know the camera angle is not really good but Shaq is cleary taller than big show, also i don't think shaq wear basketball shoes with his suit,
Shaq is at least 214cm so a strong 7 footer barefoot and big Show probably a solid 209/210 cm barefoot, i think is fair to update his height to 214, 213 is a bit low for this basketball legend ;-)

I think he was 7'1 back then, and that's what he was billed in his basketball days.
Back then ---> Nash billed 7' --> 6'10'', Show billed up to 7'3 --> 7'1
I'm pretty sure he would still measure very close to 7' in the morning and standing tall ( which he never does ).
Also many seems to really under estimate the fact that the height of a 7' 500lbs man will be proportionally more impacted than a 6' 200lbs guy throughout the day...

Big Show or Paul Wight was exactly an inch taller than Wilt Chamberlain in High School when he was around 6'11 ish, have you ever seen a comparison of them touching the rim. Big Show clearly looks taller. Just keep in mind that Big Show's large 12-13 inch head and wide frame can make him appear shorter than he is.

No Big Show looked 7 foot easily in his prime, just b/c Rob changed Shaq's listed height doesn't mean Big Show never saw 7 ft.

I go by evening height with my estimations and in WCW as The Giant he didn´t look 7ft evening with John Tenta and Giant Haystacks despite having a footwear advantage. He was leaner back then so he looked taller.

I've seen Big Show at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR. I believe he is 7' tall. I also met Dutch Savage several times, and having seen him in pictures with Andre The Giant, I know Andre was at least 7' 4" before his acromegaly(or however it's spelled) changed him.

Rob would you classify a peak big show as a 'mega giant' since he was roughly 4 inches over 6'8?
Editor Rob: I think he is still in giant territory, a mega giant is much rarer, guys who could be Yao Ming territory.
mrtguy said on 22/May/16
Rob, do you think Big Show's chest is rather 80'' than 64''??
Editor Rob: wwe gave him 64, I don't know if with weight gain he added a few more inches to take him to near 70!

Big show has an exceptionally large frame for a man. Something to do with his giantism maybe?

Guys like lesner or Mark Henry might not look as wide as big show cause there a lot shorter.




Lesnar does not compare to Big Show.Only Henry, can give the wider impression since it's much shorter.
Sean said on 19/May/16
When Big Show came to WWE in 1999, he was huge. There is a video out there somewhere with Big Show and the The Rock from 1999, and Vince McMahon is also in the segment. Rock back in 1999 was at least 6'3". Big Show had to be at least 7'0.5" and he had perfect posture. They both were out of gear and big show towered over the rock. Big Show has lost height over the years because of age, injuries and all the weight he has carried. I would have loved to see Shaq vs Big Show circa 1999, as opposed to 2016, back then they would have been near equal height.

Editor Rob: he may be very strong, but put him in a 'world's strongest man' competition and see how he'd fair...he certainly wouldn't be winning it.

He looked more 6'11.5 if Kevin Nash was 6'9.5

Chris I'd say big show is a solid 6'10.5 today. Your a tall guy at 6'1 but he does make you look short lol.

Was he nice in person? Judging by watching him in interviews I don't really like the guy personally he comes across as intelligent but at the same time quite arrogant like "look at me I am a giant I can do whatever the hell I want".

Hathor Julias Thor would knock his ego down 'quite litteraly'.

I'm sorry, but Big Show is naturally much bigger and stronger than Hafthor. If Big Show trained for strength and took the same drugs, I'm sure he'd be one of the strongest, if not the strongest, men to ever live. The amount of muscle mass you could pack on his frame is just absurd.



Paul Wight is my FAVORITE, it simply the modern Andre the Giant who's more physical. Why the heck does Big Show need steroids when he had Acromegaly. I read that if you have acromegaly from young stages you are likely to become stronger and bigger.

BruceWayne on Big Show
Big Show was listed at 7'1" during his playing days at Wichita State University so probably during his prime, I believe he was at least 7 feet.

WCW billed him at 7'4". When he moved to the WWF (now WWE) they initially billed him at 7'2" and later on at 7 feet flat.

Today however, because of his posture and back issues plus the fact that he has ballooned to almost 500 pounds, he is probably a little over 6'10" (maybe 6'11 max on a good day).

I don't think he is shorter than Andre the Giant. Andre was billed at 7'4". However from available photos, it appears Andre was about 1-2 inches shorter than Wilt Chamberlain. that would put him around 6'11" and 7 feet in his prime. During the WrestleMania stare down with Hulk Hogan (6'4"), Andre appears to be only 4-5 inches taller than Hulkster (in their wrestling boots). This would put him around 6'9" and not anymore in his peak height (Similar to Big Show, Andre had bad posture, back and weight issues in his later years). At best Big Show and Andre are of the same height in their prime or Big show is slightly taller.


Disagree with the hogan 6'4. Hogan was between 6'5.5 and 6'6 at that point I. His career with by your logic would put Andre at 6'10 which I believe what he was fully standing at that time in his career. 6'4 for hogan is insane for his peak

Today however hogan whose body has been decimated is 6'3 at his very very best and more then often 6'2.
James B said on 13/May/16
Hogan was nothing less than 6'5 when he had a staredown with Andre at wrestlemania.

Big show looked a weak 7ft compared to Kevin Nash he didn't even look 6'9 in his past matches with Sid.
Johan said on 13/May/16
I wouldn't really go under 6'11" if Chris is 6'1".

Out of interest Chris do you know your height to the closest cm? Are you 186-187cm or? Just to narrow down how tall he is.

Alright....here you guys go. I met Show early last year in Chicago at a con. Very nice guy. He was sitting taking photos and signing autos. I asked him if he wouldn't mind standing up and he agreed. For comparison, I am 6'1" and was weighing right at 205 lbs at the time of this photo. I also attached a picture I took of him from the side so you can see his footwear. We were actually wearing the same style of tennis shoe, Under Armour....so footwear is almost exactly the same. I would have guessed Rob's estimate of 6'11" to be very close. Because he is very large framed and heavy, he didn't look that tall seeing him from a distance when he first came out....but getting closer to him was a different story....Hope you enjoy the pic.

I know Adam Scherr aka Braun Strowman personally...I've trained with him & The Silverback Crew from Charlotte-Mooresville, NC many times over the past 10 years. Adam has been measured barefoot @ 6'7.5" & 6'7.75" "barefoot"!... on multiple occasion & documented. And he's a legit 370 lbs!! He fluctuates anywhere from 345-385 over the past few years. But, you've got to take a good look at those wrestling boots too! Kane & Big Show's boot heels are 0.5" to 0.75" thicker than Adam's (Braun).

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.

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

Big Show was in cowboyboots during their first staredown next to Jericho, that´s the reason he looked only 1" shorter.

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.

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

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?

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.

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

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

At wm 32 with 7'1 Shaq, big show was minimum 2 inches shorter. 6'11 tops today

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.

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.

He looked shorter to me.

I think when they went face to face in 2009 big show was 6'11.25-6'11.5 range and even as far back as 2000 6'11.75. Show has not been a legit 7ft since 1999.

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.

Editor Rob: I would say he was shorter than wilt
mrtguy said on 15/Feb/16
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.

@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.

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

there is more than 6 inches between them (remember big shows head is larger than the average 9-9.5 inches) and they look similar distance from camera imo

Brandon Bass measured 6'6.25" w/o shoes Click Here so that supposed 6'6" guy is not close to that height - probably no more than 6'3" if that is a recent pic of Big Show unless Bass is in cowboy boots and Big Show barefoot....

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

When I first seen that pic I would of thought that guy next to Big Show was at least minimum 6'5''.
