Comment on the Height of Big Show



James B said on 7/Feb/16
But your still confident rob he was 7ft peak?
Editor Rob: I would still go with that figure yes
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.
A man said on 2/Feb/16
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.

LoganNoll1996 said on 30/Jan/16
@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.
James B said on 27/Jan/16
I think either Kane or strowman are the second tallest wrestler in the WWE roster at the moment?
mrtguy said on 26/Jan/16
To bad, WWE doesn't do any justice. Big Show is probably a lot BIGGER in person than you think.

Can't see Big Show over 6'11" nowdays. Still the tallest superstar in the current WWE roster though. With Kalisto being the shortest. (not counting Hornswoggle)

Big show is 6'10 range today

Still a giant


I think a peak Big Show was 7'1''
Nowadays looks 6'11''-7'' better posture.
Aza said on 24/Jan/16
Well, in one of the pics with Nowitski even accounting for the fact that he is closer to the camera then Big Show, Nowitski's lean to accomodate Big Show I believe is telling that he is clearly taller.

Looking at the pics Dirks stance is casual and Big Show is standing erect. So Dirk is taller.


Based on looking at Big Show next to Dirk proves nothing. The angles are messed up.

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

mrtguy do you have any more photos of that supposed 6'6 guy with other celebs because he looks more 6'3-6'4 next to big show based on that photo.


That's the only pic I could find
mrtguy said on 20/Jan/16
JT said on 19/Jan/16
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''.

Just search on Google Images Big Show and Dirk Nowitski. Big Show is 6'10.


Dirk is 6'11'' they're both same height maybe Big Show might come out a bit taller since his head is much bigger
Alex 6'0 said on 19/Jan/16
Guy looks more 6'4 range maybe 6'5. A real 6'6 guy would come up more on Big Show.
James B said on 18/Jan/16
Yeah Vegas exactly I think a 6'6 would definitely look taller next to Show like Eric rowen for example

That guy with Big Show is a legit 6'6 guy? Big Show is slightly closer to camera and looks 6 inches taller. Would prob be really more like 5 inches difference if both level from camera.

Big show looks to have slightly more trainer (basketball shoes maybe?) is standing at his tallest next to the 6'6 man. If he matched big shows posture, wore thicker shoes and matched big shows posture he would look under 7ft.

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.



Big Show next to Kevin Durant Click Here

if Kevin Durant is 6'10.25'' than Big Show looks 7'0.5'', I think it's likelier that Big Show is minimum 6'11'' bare feet and Kevin Durant 6'9.25''

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

Matt Morgan next to Big Show looks to be about 6'8"-6'9", in the photos displayede by mrtguy.

As for Strowman. Check out the Kane Height page. I compiled some pictures of Strowman that definitely show he is at 6'7.5" at the lowest. Maybe 6'8" at peak.

Alex 6'0 said on 14/Jan/16
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
Alex 6'0 said on 14/Jan/16
So you guys have Big Show at 6'11 and Strowman at 6'7? Possibly as much as 4 inches difference between the 2 men? Def not in their faceoffs. Looks no more than 2
James B said on 13/Jan/16
Alex I think Strowman is 6'7.5
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Jan/16
Big Show is looking only 2 inches or taller than Strowman but the difference could be a bit more than it looks. Strowman could be 6'8 very possible

if Kevin Durant is 6'10.25'' than Big Show looks 7'0.5'', I think it's likelier that Big Show is minimum 6'11'' bare feet and Kevin Durant 6'9.25''

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...

No mrtguy. HC 15 isnt taller than Strowman.If you put them side beside Strowman will look at least 1,5 in taller since he is very near to kane but both use big boots with lifts


I wonder how tall height challenger 15 would look next to Strowman w/o lifts?
mrtguy said on 10/Jan/16
Nick cantan, yeah that stare down between Show and Strowman isn't great at all, it looks quite similar to other rivalries of Big Show like Matt Morgan. Click Here Click Here
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.
mrtguy said on 8/Jan/16
just look at the ground surface Click Here it's favoring strowman and if he really is tall as Big Show then why are cameraman not showing his both of their footwear. Click Here It's pretty obvious that WWE is trying to make Strowman appear bigger than he really is.
mrtguy said on 8/Jan/16
I have a feeling WWE really tried making Strowman look taller, it's pretty obvious Big Show tried slouching in the segment to make himself appear shorter Click Here 4'' in height. Strowman's footwear are suspect I mean he looked taller than kane and than shorter LIFTS?

Strongman said on 6/Jan/16
@Lars H. To be fair, Big Show's posture wasn't as bad as you're making it out to be. He probably has 2.5 inches, MAYBE 3 at best on Strowman.

Since Strowman doesn't look much over 6'7", it's generous to consider Big Show 6'10"+ at 43 years of age and 20 years in the wrestling business.
mrtguy said on 6/Jan/16
@Lars H. Yeah, I agree Big Show's posture is getting worse, but keep in mind strowman wore his monstrous lifts to appear taller and the camera angle is favouring strowman.

The only way daniel can hold his own against mark henry is in a scripted figjt much like rey mysterio fid agsinst big show ten years ago... These big guys are monsters. On the point of height i doubt henry is 6'3". More like 6'1" bare foot. He akso wrars monster boots.
Gary H. said on 5/Jan/16
I found a zoomed in video of the stand off between Big Show and Strowman. At first when I watched it live, I thought Strowman was actually taller than Show and Show showed obvious terrible posture. But in this zoomed in screen shot, despite Show's really bad posture, he seems to still have 2-3 inches on Strowman.

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.

But yes Kane by all accounts was the strongest in the locker room in the late 90s-early 2000s. He trained like a monster, whereas Show didn't bother.


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


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.

@James B, no others could beat Brock Lesnar if you ask me Mark Henry can and so can Big Show.

No the angle seems quite accurate between Show and Jabbar, your just a downgrader, have you even seen Big Show next to Shaq Click Here it's no less than an inch. Big Show's head is 12 inches much bigger than Shaq's.
josey wales said on 30/Dec/15
Mrtguy your a strange one. Today 6'10" big show is still a very massivev man. It sounfs like you make me out trying to mske big sjow small(er). I do not doubt much he was barefoot sevenfoot peak . 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 . These guys ate han and take alot of punnishment and age and often get njured which may hasten heightloss. Relax, live longer.

Big show in my opinion looks not over 6'10.5 there compared to Kane who is now no more than 6'7.

Take into account big show is probably in wrestling boots whereas Kane is in coperal clothing.

josey wales said on 26/Dec/15

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''.

Hello
Big show he's a 7ft max and Shaquille O'Neal he's a 7'1 like a great khali

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.
Gerv said on 24/Dec/15
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

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.

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.

JT in that shot its easily 14 inches and that's with her in heels too.

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.

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

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)

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.

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.

------------------------
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.

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.

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".

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.

Ah, looks like you're probably right Tuga. It just seems Undertaker has lost quite a bit of height. He looks about 2.5 inches shorter than Show who is probably 7 foot and some change in boots, so Taker was roughly 6'10" in that comparison photo.

Rikishi

Oh by the way alex Andre looked broader and wider than big show. I have little doubt he would have no problem defeating him granted i think a 2006 big show could have given andre a run for his money and maybe show is much quicker
James B said on 8/Aug/15
Naturally big show is large built but probably lifts VERY heavy weights and does virtually no cardio.

You never know in the past he might have taken steroids to get to the size he is/was. A large built man who takes illegal substances will look freaking HUGE.

Peak should be 7'1 he is just under 7ft now
mrtguy said on 7/Aug/15
@James B are you serious someone who is 7 ft should weigh close 300 lbs.
Alex 6'0 said on 7/Aug/15
Height183, yea WM 2000 he was in solid shape. Of course was still billed at 500lbs though but really was really in lower 400s. 420 or 430lbs he had said in early 2000. Back then he was a solid 7'0 guy for sure before he lost any height.
JT said on 6/Aug/15
Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki are both probably strong 6'11" and 250 lbs and are skinny. Their bone structure is not remotely close in size to Big Show's. Other than Andre, I doubt few people have ever had a frame as large as Big Show's. At 300 lbs., he'd be much healthier but would look pretty slim. He'd look anorexic at 238 lbs.
James B said on 5/Aug/15
If he wanted to be healthier than I think 242 pounds is probably ideal for big show

Okay I know me being 5'7 I should not dare have the 'authority' to say this but I think 248-251 is what a large built 7ft man should weigh.

He would look in the best shape of his life if he weighed 238 pounds of lean muscle.
__________

he would look weird at 238lb. Stefan Struve weighed in at 265lb this past weekend for his ufc fight and he is around same height as big show

big show needs to lose at least 100lb in saying that
mrtguy said on 4/Aug/15
@James B someone with a 7 foot frame IMO should weigh at least 250 if not more.
Height183 said on 3/Aug/15
I agree Alex. You just made me remember. Big Show was in great shape around that Wrestlemania 2000 time. 2009 he wasn't looking that bad either, when he was a part of 'Jerishow'.

In 2006 was his biggest he ever was. 525lbs legit I read. He was billed less than he actually was. Then he came back in early 2008 around 100lbs less. Over the last 4-5 years looks same weight range but back in 1999-2000 was his best look I say.

From 2000 with Big Show looking in solid shape. Still huge but not as fat as he has been over the last how many years. I remember in 2000 Big Show on a radio show saying he was really 420lbs and not 500

If Big Show got to 238lbs he'd look sick and too skinny. He'd be like half his self now!


He'd look sick but he'd be a hell of a lot healthier. The problem is he's been so heavy for most of his life that if he quickly got down to 238 lbs he would not look right and his head would look to big for his body. If he kept at 238 all his life he would look better and be physically fitter.


For a 6ft11 man 238 is right at the upper end of healthy weight range and verging on overweight.
Nick said on 31/Jul/15
To Fran77. Hafthor Bjornsson is stronger than Paul Wight (Big Show) but he would not have the strength to rip off his arm. No human being has that strength and no human has anywhere near the strength of a gorilla. Humans are pound for pound the weakest of the apes.

Well Hafthor Bjornsson is in his twenties and he has just lift the mast of a vicking ship (its on youtube). 650 kg (1433 pounds) so... if Big Show tries to punch Thor, he can easily rip off his arm. Silverback gorilla strength.

I'd be surprised if Big Show (and Khali) makes it to 70. Tall people generally don't live as long and his weight isn't helping. James B, 300 lbs. would be a good weight for Big Show (it's actually less than what he weighed in 12th grade). Sub-250 lbs. is too thin given his frame.

He claimed in an interview to be 7'1" and between 308 and 315 pounds in his senior year.

I think the listing of Igor's height is a miss consumption, Yeah a guy like Igor can most likely reach 7'10'' out of bed easily. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to say he is 7'10''.
But based on, looking at these pics of him next to people shorter he can look 7'10''. Like for an example
The camera is favouring his angle making him look a few inches taller than he actually is.

Rob, could a guy like Big Show have started to lose height in his early-mid 30s??

miko said on 26/Jun/15
The talk of Big Show using 'lifts' at any point in his career are ridiculous. He's a wrestler, he would break his ankles. The biggest boots you will get away with wrestling in are around 2 inches thick like Kane would have used in the late 90's.

The sole of his boots in WCW were thicker than they are today. But in reality, all he would have been getting was 0.5/0.75' advantage over anybody else. If his boots were truly 2 inches thick in WCW then he would have been hitting around 7'2. Today in smaller boots, he's probably hitting around 7'0.5, but he's also bald and his posture isn't what it was, so that's why he doesn't give off the huge illusion he used to. He's lost an inch, at very best.

I'd love to see more pictures of Big men comparisons. If you look closely, Big SHows shoes compress as he walks in WCW. Clear lift give away next to the instep being at a steeper angle. Again I'd give him 7' at his peak. Would have loved to see him throw Andre around. I truly believe that Andre would have a rough time with someone he could not bully with size.
