At his fattest in 2006 Big show was legitimtely 530-535 pounds. He made Great Khali look anorexic.
Eric says on 18/Apr/14
Shaq did the local news in Nashville a few days ago and when asked how big he was he said 7feet tall and 419 lbs. so that answers the question of weight. Height if say he's about 6'11 these days. show has lost weight, when he weighed in vs Mayweather he was 442 on the same scale that Mayweather was 159 but he looks a bit slimmer now. I'd say at his fattest he was a bit under 500

Btw, andre was in an interview and said he had quit drinking and lost 90lbw and was now 470lbs meaning he was about 560 before hand, which was around 1981 I think. I do believe andre could have peaked passed 600

the claim is "the world's largest athlete" there are guys out there that are far taller and heavier but they aren't professional athletes

There are people taller, and there are people heavier - but how many are more massive? Yokozuna was 600+ pounds, do you consider him ''bigger'' than Big show.

Im 6'5" im at big shows ear

There are a very few guys,u can number them on your hand.But none of them is a sportsman,Sokoloski retired,when he was a sportsman he only weighted 320 pounds,and now he is weighing 425 pounds.Big show can still claim that he is the largest athlete on the world.

This guy is 6'11,and 441 pounds,he can claim to be the biggest man on earth.U won't find a guy who is alive, taller,and heavier than him in the same time.


How about Mr. Calvin Lane, he made Shaq look average size

Miko, Big Show goes up and down in weight. Not sure on his weight now and maybe closer to 400lbs but look at him in 1999-2000 he was 420-430 and still leaner than he is now but he had a leaner build than he has now and was carrying more muscle back then.
miko says on 1/Apr/14
Show has lost a lot of weight recently and could be down to closer to 400lbs.

He usually puts some back on if he has a lengthy wrestling run though.

Sokoloski actually looks relatively slim in that photo but is probably still 375 lbs. or so. Mamun and 7'2" Kareem Click Here There may be something strange with the photo angles but I've always suspected Sokoloski was 2-3 inches under his claimed height of 7'5". I don't think Sokoloski is acromegalic as he doesn't appear to have those "giant" features" (thick fingers, wrists, etc.) that set guys like Andre, Big Show, Khali, Giant Silva, Giant Gonzalez, Igor V. etc. apart from other tall people.
Vegas says on 31/Mar/14
Jerry Sokoloski is another who is clearly taller and probably heavier than big show as for right now, for those that don't know the guy standing next to him is 5'8 barefoot Click Here

This is a beautiful example of a peak 7'.05" Big Show. Comparing him to the undertaker, who I would say was a legit 6'8" back in the summer of 1999. Especially between 3:30 and 4:40 of the video. Convinces me of Big Show's claim of 7ft and change, since he seems to be a solid 4 inches, maybe 4.5 unches taller than the undertaker.

He looks shorter than he did in the wcw/attitude era these days. Back in 2006 I thought he looked taller as well.

Maybe that's cause he no hair?

Show appears to be shorter than Dirk Nowitzki, who I believe is in the 6'10''-6'11'' range.

Couldn't you find a picture that was more tilted?
miko says on 14/Mar/14
People have no clue over angles, posture and so forth.

When standing as tall as he physically can with his chest out, and neck stretched out Show is still at very least 6'11 and most likely taller. He has a huge upper body and short legs for his height, so when he's leaning or slouching he can easily lose an inch or two.

Recently either Triple H has been wearing massive lifts or Big Show lost some height. In recent episodes of Raw he seemed like he was 6'9" at most when standing next to Triple H
Logic says on 27/Feb/14
JT, that photo of Mychal Thompson and Bill Walton was taken only a couple of years ago. So, if Bill Walton is 6'11" today then he was probably 6'11" a couple of years ago when that photo was taken. I do agree with you that Walton has probably lost some height since his peak. And Walton does seem to try to really stretch out and make himself appear as tall as possible while the person in the photo with him is often in a more relaxed posture. And I will concede that Mychal Thompson may be 6'9" today if he was standing completely straight and thus the Big Show is probably around 6'11" today.

Nonetheless, here is a photo of NBA player Kevin Love and Mychal Thompson . Kevin Love's NBA draft measurement without shoes was listed at 6'7.75".

If Thompson is 6'9 then I'd put Big Show at 6'11
JT says on 25/Feb/14
Logic, Walton was listed at 6'11" in the NBA but was closer to 7'1". He hated being called a 7 footer since he thought that's where "freak" height started. Walton was noticeably taller than Robert Parish (listed 7'0.5"), Kevin McHale (listed 6'10") and Greg Kite (listed 6'11"). Click Here Walton's had countless surgeries over the years, including fusion of both ankles, and is probably down to around 6'11" now. He hated his height when he was younger but seems to relish it now as he stands with impeccable posture in most pics.

In your pic, Walton's head is significantly larger than Thompson's even though it's tilted back. He's therefore leaning closer to the camera although it may not look it. I've watched enough of Thompson over the years as well as seen him in person several times to know he's probably a legit 6'9".

Big Show and Mychal Thompson from a few days ago Click Here Thompson was a backup center for the Lakers on their two championship teams in the late 1980s was listed at 6’10”. I’ve seen him in person a few times. He’s definitely tall but probably around 6’9”. He looks that height with his son, Klay, who measured a little under 6’6” without shoes for the 2011 NBA draft Click Here


On Thompson’s show, Big Show said he was 7’0”, 436 lbs., size 18 shoe, size 23 ring, and had a 23.5” neck and arms.

Show is somewhere between 6'11 and 7'0. He might have been fractionally taller in his prime, but we're talking half an inch tops.

He is still 6'11 bare minimum fully stretched out.
Chris says on 1/Feb/14
In 2001 6ft4 tall Diamond Dallas Page came up just under the buttom of Big Shows nose,in the case of a normal sized mans head that would be a 7 inch difference,but considering that Big Show has a huge head it could be a 8 inch difference,that would make Big Show 7ft tall, at least thats what he looked with him in 2001

big show is 7 foot tall. A while ago there was a pic of him and a 6'11 inch fan and big show was 1 inch taller. not sure about their footware. Big show was exactly a little taller (about 1/4 or 1/2 inch) than shaq when they went eye to eye in dress shoes. and shaq is 6'11 3/4 orso

big show has said he weighed 530pounds max. in an old interview with him (i dont know where it is anymore) it said he was 550pounds at his max.

Big Mike what are you smokin!? Big Show is 6'4!? LMAO. A legit 6'9-er like Kevin Nash doesn't even see Show eye to eye. It's clear that Paul has suffered from a bout of gigantism, so 7 foot is feasible easily.

I think he should be listed at 6'11'', down from a peak of 7'0''. At the very least, his posture is awful, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's shrunk a bit from everything he's endured in the ring and all the weight that his spine has had to support.

2 inches shorter then shaq, with shoe advantage...


Wrong.
2 inches shorter with Shaq in bigger footwear
1 inch shorter with footwear advantage

Shaq is between 7´0.5" and 7´1", so Paul is easy 6´11"range

NBA pre-draft lists heights both barefoot and with shoes on .
LG69 says on 18/Dec/13
@JT, that article about show being 7'1" is with his shoes on. Most every basketball player is measured in their shoes. In the NBA, they list both height with shoes and without. When I played college basketball, the roster listed our heights with shoes on. Also, they will sometimes round up. If a guy is 6'0.5" barefoot and 6'1.5" with shoes, they will sometimes round to 6'2"; It's common practice. Show was 1.5" shorter than legit 7'1" Shaq when they faced off. I can buy an a peak 6'11.5" barefoot for Show.
JT says on 17/Dec/13
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 16/Dec/13
If Big Show's head is 12 inches he has a full head on the guy who is 6'0 in shoes in that pic so it does put Big Show at 6'11ish barefoot

Not saying your estimate is off but from that low a camera angle, taller objects will appear a little shorter than they actually are. Plus smiling increases the head length by a 1/2 inch or so.

I think JT make a comparison a while back which put Big Show's head at roughly 12 inches (1 foot), Khali's head is a little shorter at around 11/11.5.
JT says on 15/Dec/13
Click Here
Click Here

Big Show’s head is probably 12 inch range and 5.5 inches from the eyes up; Khali’s head is maybe an inch shorter Click Here In the photo Vegas posted of Big Show next to his 6’4” friend, Big Show’s head length came out around 20 percent longer. In many photos, Big Show’s head size is really the first thing that stands out for me Click Here

Like Andre, Khali’s head looks relatively normal sized from the eyes up, with jaw elongation accounting for much of the length. Matt Bloom (A-Train) and John Tenta (Earthquake) probable have a head length around 11 inches too.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 14/Dec/13
Rob, how long do you think Big Show's head length is? Gotta be at least 11 inches I'd say considering the average guys head is 9.5 inches
[Editor Rob: yes it would be 11 inch range I'm pretty sure.

a guy like the Great Khali aswell would have an 11-11.5 inch head, no less than that range.]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 14/Dec/13
Your brother is right beside Big Show and a better position to compare him to Big Show. 6'0 in shoes so right around 5'11 give or take barefoot. I'm not sure on Big Show's head length but I'm gonna guess prob about 12 inches. It does look about a foot difference. 6'11 Big Show does appear here but that's just an estimate
miko says on 13/Dec/13
Show looks anywhere up to 5 inches taller than Kane in that video when he stands tall.

Kane is 6'7 range so.......

@7991WWN, Nice photo! I'd say Show looks 6'10.5"- 6'11" in that photo.
Ali Baba says on 7/Dec/13
Your brother is in a better position than you to go off of to guess Show's height. You say he's 6' in shoes, so about 5'11 out of shoes. Show doesn't even have a full foot on him unless Show's head is 13" or something. And Show's posture looks at least as good or better than the people he's with. I still think he's closer to 6'10" than 7'

Click Here

Click Here Esiason’s head is tilted back in the pic with Kareem but this is probably close enough. Kareem and Motumbo would be about the same height and both at least an inch taller than Big Show. Big Show does have them beat in the hands and noggin department though.

Connor, Kane said in an interview I recently he claims "about 6'8" so hes prob rounding up a bit so the 6'7.5 Rob has him at may be pretty accurate. Big Show has around 4 inches on Kane. Big Show 6'11 at least today though yes he can appear even shorter at times. His posture isn't good but as we seen with legit 7'1 Shaq Big Show was no more than a little over an inch shorter than Shaq.

Ali Baba, I agree. Khali is terrible. Big Show was always more of an athletic giant. Not saying hes very athletic but for a giant he can move in the ring still

I saw Khali up very close yesterday at the WWE house show in Nottingham, he went past me on the ramp and slapped my hand!

The guy is wrecked, he nearly fell down the ramp. But he had at least a full head on me and I'm 6'0, I was giving it everything I'd got posture wise. I do have a video but it's not great for height comparison.

Ryback looked a flat 6'1, Cena too.

Connor 184cm says on 9/Nov/13
I agree with Alex, Big Show does seem like a weak 7 footer today maybe 212cm, i think he might be around 7ft 0.5 in the morning maybe, if kane is 6ft 8 then Big Show has at least 3.5, 3.75 inches on him, 6ft 11.5-6ft 11.75 is the giants range today id say.

I was checking out some of Raw last night and at the end with Big Show and HHH. Big Show honestly looked more 6'8 range. Hes def not that short but looked shorter than usual last night with HHH who is 6'2 max
Nash and smash says on 3/Nov/13
Big show Is 6 foot 11 without his shoes
dicksock says on 18/Oct/13
I think Show is 6'11" and was 7' in his prime. I don't think he had equal footwear with Shaq in the first segment on Raw. Show had on cowboy boot style heels, while Shaq had on standard dress shoes. When Show was in his ring gear, he had comparable footwear to Shaq and looked 2" shorter. Plus, does not look 7' next to Lebron James or that skinny 6'11" fan. He also looks fairly short next to 6'4"-6'4.5" Randy Orton.

Big Show: 6'11" (7' prime)
Shaq: 7'1"
Khali: 7'0.5"
Andre: 6'11.5" prime (6'10.5" at death)
Hogan: 6'5.75" prime (6'3.5" now)
miko says on 16/Oct/13
Big Show looked shorter as soon as he left WCW, shaved his head and stopped wearing big boots. In reality I believe he has lost very little height if any.

He's always been in the 6'11.5/7'0 range and still looks close to this in good posture, because of how huge his upper body is, all he has to do is lean forwards and he can drop 3/4 inches in height.

Given his size and weight of 425lbs he could easily wake up at 7'0.5 and drop to near 6'11 at night. Remember the average man drops around an inch in the day.
Marc says on 15/Oct/13
andre is always listed as 7ft4
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 15/Oct/13
I also read Khali was literally measured at 7'0.5 on a wrestling website. Pretty possible and 7'1 was rounded up and they just bill him at 7'2. If he is legit 7'0.5 Big Show is def below 7'0 and falls 6'11 and change
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 15/Oct/13
If Big Show were measured today he'd prob come out to 6'11-6'11.5. Peak def a strong 7'0 at least. Also when would we say Big Show has started to look shorter?
clement says on 11/Oct/13
If you consider that lebron james is 6'7".....then the Big Show is 6'8",which i had already in The Undertaker's segment;Thanks for listening.
pjk says on 11/Oct/13
Like i have said before I think big show was around 6'10"-6'10.5" peak height. That is enormous in reality especially with his vast frame and proportions. He looked about one inch shorter than Shaq who was 6'11" on his college listing. I saw that a while ago, and considering men don't grow much at all past the age of 16 unless pituitary problems, i think its safe to say it is his adult height. Also, if you want evidence to support this, find the photo's of Shaq with Yao Ming or Calvin Lane ( ~7'4" ). He is obviously a lot smaller than both of those giant men, both in terms of height and frame size.

Cheers

I'd like to see how tall this guy really is when he is formally measured without shoes! won't come to 7 ft! certainty!


*Ding Ding Ding*

Is there really any doubt that if someone like Rob measured him, he'd come in at under 7'0''? I think even 6'11'' is generous for the Big Show nowadays.

Show does have a big heel but Shaq is also in his basketball shoes. I think the footwear is about the same.

Shaq and Khali are about the same height: Click Here

Show and Khali staredown: Click Here

Big Show with footwear advantage: Click Here

IMO: Big Show 6'11" barefoot (7' peak), Khali and Shaq: 7'1"
Joe says on 2/Oct/13
Big Show and 6'7.25'' Lebron James: Click Here

If Big Show is 7'0'' barefoot, then there should be a 5 inch difference in their heights. I think it looks like a 3 inch difference (and possibly less because Big Show has better posture). Based on this picture, Big Show is around 6'10'', unless Lebron is actually 6'8'' barefoot (which is unlikely). In that case, Big Show is maybe 6'11''. Either way, there's no chance he's 7'0'' barefoot.
Harlemhangover56 says on 29/Sep/13
miko - Look at HivoDivo's pic 3 places below, no way is that a barely 1 inch difference. No way was he Dirk (6'11)'s height either.
miko says on 25/Sep/13
If you want Big Show at 6'10, then Shaq is barely over 6'11 which would screw up every single NBA listing.
drk says on 18/Sep/13
Giant Gonzalez was a legitimate 7'6" barefoot. He could look over big Show's head.
Hivodivo98 says on 17/Sep/13
Gregs - Click Here Yes they do. Nobody refers to Wight's shot with Nadal in which he looks no more than about 8 inches taller, certainly not 7 foot, 6'10 tennis players tower nadal. Dirk makes him look almost normal too. No way show is over 6'10, wrestlers are all blown up.

I don't think Big Show has lost that much height. He also looks shorter due to his weight and posture too. Peak def 7'0-7'0.5 but today Id give him 6'11
Red183 says on 29/Aug/13
Rob, what do you think about the Andre/ Big Show comparisons?

Big Show in his prime looked 7´0" evening, clearly an inch taller than peak Andre´s eveningheight.

Imo peak Andre´s height range over the day was right out of bed 7´0.5"-6´11"evening and Big Show´s 7´1.5"-7´0".

Rob, do you agree with that? If so are you willing to point out this difference in their listings?
[Editor Rob: it depends when a guy like Andre started to lose height, close to 7ft I think he had to be at his peak.]
CLEMENT says on 26/Aug/13
My Guess is that Mr. Paul Wight stand's around 6'9" to 6'10"....But previously in the Mid 90's, He stood Maybe around 7'0".

I agree hogan was 194-195cm range 90's. But why would you think Show has Lost 3cm in his 40's? I agree he probably measures under 7ft evening these days, but he certainly looks no less than 6'11!

Pics of show with 5'10 or 6'3 people mean little, whenever he's around anyone near or at 7 foot - Singh, Shaq, Dirk, he always looks a couple of inches smaller. If show is 7ft then these guys are at least 7'2, which they are not.

Dirk is closer to the camera in that full body pic with Big Show and they still look about the same height.

Click Here This is probably from 1996. There are plenty of pics showing Bruno in 2013 (at age 77) still looking pretty close to his peak height of 5’10” although he should be closer to 5’9” now. He’s probably somewhere between 5’10” and 5’9” with Big Show. The floor looks tilted a bit in Bruno’s favor as well.

Click Here Akebono measured 6’8 1/3” and has better posture than Big Show in both pics. This also shows that Big Show’s boots don’t give as much of a boost as some here think.

Click Here Wilt comes out height-wise just about exactly how tall he was in high school (6'11" by the 9th grade and grew a little more until hitting the 7 foot mark in college). If this accurately pegs Wilt’s height, it pretty much does for Big Show at least at age 17.
Joe says on 25/Jul/13
I think Big Show is struggling to hit 6'10'' these days. Dirk is clearly taller than him, and he's 6'11'' at most.

I think a generous estimate for Big Show today is 6'10.5''. I do think he was a legit seven-footer in his prime, but carrying around 400+ pounds likely caused him to shrink faster than usual.

___________

Dirk is listed at 7' and where is there a picture of them where one can compare their heights? Also, I'm pretty sure JT or someone posted a 6'7" measurement for Rodman. Show was maybe 7' in his prime and is still a solid 6'11". His segments with 7'1" Shaq prove this. He looks 6" taller than Trace Adkins as well.

6'11.5 for Show today is probably bang on. He edged out a 6'11 guy last year.

For a guy of his height and weight to lose very little height is pretty impressive. I can buy him dropping from 7'0 to 6'11.5.

Then again Andre the Giant didn't lose much height through his career, dropping from maybe 6'11 to around a weak 6'10 at his death.

6'10 for Wight is madness.

This is a guy who was eye to eye with a measured 7'1 Shaq as of a couple of years ago, unless he was somehow packing 3 inches of lifts into what looked flat dress shoes, he is not 6'10.

___________

They weren't flat dress shoes. They had a noticeable heel on them. He probably got over an inch from those dress shoes. I say Show is probably ~6'11.5" now and 7' in his prime. I have yet to see one shred of evidence that he has lost more than this (I know you didn't claim he lost any real height, but others do for some reason.)

rodimer looks noticeably shorter in-ring next to big show than matt morgan did around the same time, rodimer is wearing same black sneakers in both segments btw because you catch a quick glimpse of them at the end of backstage clip, speaking of which he is much closer to the camera in that and looks "taller" than big show from that vantage point

if i was going to take a guess i would say rodimer would be close to trace adkins height Click Here
CelticLion89 says on 10/Jul/13
Clay - Then Why Did Karlovic look so much taller near Nadal (than Show) at 6'10?
Why did Show look comfortably shorter than 6'11 Dirk Nowitzki? Why didn't show look 7 foot near 6'6 Rodman?

You can't keep blaming the camera, posture or shoes all the time. The Kane/ Vince Vaughn pic totally confirms what Kurt Angle said about wrestler heights, never mind the Rock/Barkley one.
Clay says on 9/Jul/13
No, Rodimer is not within two inches of Big Show.

And I believe him when he said a little over 7'0 (probably a couple MM's) and 420 lbs in 1999.
CelticLion89 says on 7/Jul/13
Alex V. posted good pics - 6'10 Karlovic Looks MUCH taller than Show next to Rafa Nadal. And Dirk Nowitzki at 6'10/11 is at least an Inch taller. Wrestler heights are pumped up so much.

Undertaker is not taller than Justice Smith or Rodimer, Rodimer looks close to Show's height (2 inches off) in the backstage segment where show pushes Puder. Then they told Rodimer to wear a thin sole because they didn't like it - check the shoe difference in the in-ring comparison. You can tell how Show hates Rodimer being so big, cocky and unafraid by the way he continually attempts to intimidate and push him, Rodimer laughs it off to his credit.
Kevin says on 26/Jun/13
Big Show is a STRONG 7'0.5. He definitely peaked at about 7'1.5 or 7'2. His pic with Shaq in equal footwear was story-telling. Show was about a half inch to an inch shorter. Shaq is 7'1.5 so what does that tell you?

There is no way Big Show is 6'10 or less. I don't understand why people are saying he's 6'10 lol.

6'10 for Wight is madness.

This is a guy who was eye to eye with a measured 7'1 Shaq as of a couple of years ago, unless he was somehow packing 3 inches of lifts into what looked flat dress shoes, he is not 6'10.

After seeing him up close at RAW in Birmingham 2012, he dwarfed my 6'8 friend ringside, and the floor was level. He's somewhere between 6'11 and 7'0 and always has been.

I don't see how wight was ever taller than 7 foot peak. I watched a doc on him and they interviewed about his life and childhood and he repeatedly mentioned how he grew to 7 feet and refereed to himself as being "7 foot" many times. He never referred to himself as any height above that.

I don't see why he would downplay his height if ever was taller than 7 feet flat?

I agree that the difference doesn't look very much, but I think that's mostly due to the camera angle. In the pic Lebron's head is nearly as long as Big Show's, which can't be right. The picture is taken from a low angle and Lebron is leaning towards the camera.
---------------------------------------------------

Roel, with Lebron's arm being behind Show's neck Lebron's head is very likely about even with Show's. Also notice that Lebron's arms and legs appear to be longer than Show's. I'm actually suspicious that Lebron is standing on something for that pic as a goof.

If anything Show has gone from 7'0 to 6'11.5 thats the most I can say he's lost. His posture isn't what it was, but he's still measuring up damn well to 7'1 guys like Khali and Shaq.

Given his weight he might be near 7'1 straight out of bed and just over 6'11 right before bed. He could easily lose 1.5' through the day.

Considering how Lebron James and Big Show measured up to Shaq, it’s safe to say that Big Show would have more than just an inch or so on Lebron if both are standing straight. Click Here Big Show's posture was not very good with Shaq either. Lebron is roughly the height of Kane and Undertaker, and we know how they measured up to Big Show. Seeing Lebron standing next to Kane and Undertaker in comparable footwear would be depressing for some here.

Akebono measured a full inch taller than Lebron. Click Here The height difference between Akebono and Big Show was basically the same when both were barefoot as well.

Given his weight and all of the strength maneuvers he has done in the ring, Big Show may have lost a little height by now. His poor posture also makes him appear shorter than he really is. Also, when people come across wrestlers, it’s natural for most to stand as tall as they can to see how they “measure up.”

I see your point dicksock,
I agree with you about what your peak height is.
When I found this site, I thought it´s best to give the height right in the middle of your morning/ evening and claimed 184cm for myself, always stating I´m down to 6ft flat at night.

I changed my mind a few month ago and use Rob´s system now, I think it´s better to compare my estimations with Rob´s using the low height Rob states for himself.

_______

This is where you and I disagree Red. I have never liked the whole morning, afternoon, and evening average. I've always thought that you peak height is your peak height; period. If someone is 7' out of bed, then that is their peak height. It always seemed stupid to me to not list someone's peak height as their real height. If the Big Show is 7' out of bed and 6'11" in the evening, are we just supposed to pretend like he isn't 7'? His peak height should be 7'. Personally, I think Paul Wight's peak was 7'.

I agree with Red, I would raise just a bit their heights to 6'5 1/2 hogan and 6'8 taker.
Like Red said many of us have been over this, a good posture taker was quite a bit taller than hogan, and altough some might claim height loss for hogan, you just need to use for example piper for comparison, he actually towered piper as much as he ever did, and piper was no small man at all at a bit over 6'(was taller than bret hart), hogan was also almost as tall as 6'6 john tenta, thus my 6'5 1/2 estimate for him.

Hogan was 6'6 peak, not 6'5.25. That puts Taker at 6'7.75 - 6'8.

Big Show - minimum 6' 6, max 6' 8
Khali is 6'9
Undertaker 6' 4

How tall do you think Great Khali is?

Undertaker was barely taller than Hulk Hogan! He is 6' 4 max.

Another Troll - LOL

Based on years of research and evidence put up by credible estimators like JT, Dicksock, RoelC, KingNick, Tuga just to name a few,
it´s most likely that Taker was 2.5" taller than a 1991 Hogan.

That also fits with their billed heights, Undertaker was first billed 6´8" and than raised to 6´10.5", why? because he was 2.5" taller than the 6´8" billed Hogan he was feuding with.

Hogan was about 6´5.25" in 1991 wich makes Taker 6´7.75", that also fits with how tall they looked next to 6´7" Sid Eudy

Big Show above claims himself to be 7 foot while he claims Andre to be 7 foot 1 to 7 foot 2.
