cobra,
They were both in dress shoes at the red carpet and the gap was bigger than in ring, so Big Show has the footwear advantage in ring.
cobra said on 1/Dec/16
Comparisons with Shaq need to be taken with a grain of salt when Shaq wears basketball shoes. His basketball shoes are the biggest I've ever seen, he has to be getting 2-3 inches from them.

Hi Rob, in comparison , you wouldn't think his head is bigger than Big Show... right??

Rob, at any rate Big Show and Brahim Takioullah's head length are similar the reason Brahim's head can give longer impression is because his head is thinner and has a very thin physique. Big Show on the other hand, has a chest as wide as 70'' and is very bulky guy so in pictures it will obviously will not look massive, but in person you'd be surprised how HUGE Big Show's head is.
Slon said on 26/Nov/16
Rob, doesn't this picture look similar to the top picture of Big Show, but only MUCH taller

Editor Rob: in a way it does Slon, but Big Show's head is smaller than his.

Roel have you heard of big show having any major surgery like Danimal is claiming?

No I haven't. I believe he had some knee surgery in the past, but certainly no neck surgery, back surgery or a hip replacements. Those surgeries would've sidelined him for a number of months (neck surgery even close to a year). The only time Big Show ever took that amount of time from wrestling was in 2007. And he didn't have any surgeries during those months.

Nice find.
I could believe that for a morning measurement or height in footwear.
He is obviously nowhere near seven feet next to Shaq, let alone over it.

He is also not talking about his heightloss, wich is also obvious.

Big Show had around 3 inches on Nash in comparable footwear back in the early 2000s. Click Here Big Show has lost height but most is probably posture-related. There's a good deal of whiplash head movement in wrestling so he may have developed some osteoarthritis and resulting kyphosis in his neck.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

osteoarthritis and resulting kyphosis in his neck??
That counts double or triple for Andre, you can´t have it both ways.



Big Show with his biggest WCW-boots had never more than 3inches on Nash, if that.
So how can he be 3inches taller in comparable footwear?
Big Show was max 2inches taller than Nash, both barefoot.

If it was Andre you would´ve said he lifts a foot up and gains height in your pic.



Big Show has lost height, I agree

Wich heights do you have again for Akebono?
Imo he wasn´t full 2,03m /6´8.25"evening facing Big Show, more like 2,02m,
Haystacks wasn´t under 1,98m /6´6" barefoot, 2m /6´6.75 in ring gear there,
Big Show was 2,11m /6´11" barefoot and in WCW gear 2,15m-2,16m.

The App sounds good regarding the gap.

Those stock exchange pics are showing Paul is now only 6'10" barefoot

It's crazy considering how much height Big Show had on Kevin Nash (who I believe was 6'10" at the time in the WCW in the mid-late 90's. Hogan at that time was same height as 6'5" Scott Hall and Ted Dibiase was 6'3". He also TOWERED over minimum 6'7" Lochness.

Big Show was a legit 7'0.5" (could pull off a full 7'1") guy back then (he was listed as 7'1" in college basketball). His neck was very long (today he had no neck due to neck surgery). His upper torso was longer back then (he's had back surgeries). His legs were longer then too (he's had hip replacement surgery as well).

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

Its funny because if someone posted this and the guy on the left was a measured 6'10 nba star I bet many here would be estimating kanes heights in 6'4 range based on that single shot :)Click Here

Kane to me looks more than 14cm taller than Miz in this photo Click Here
miko said on 18/Nov/16
Just remember though, lets say Show is a flat 6'10 these days, which isn't impossible of course, it would in turn affect other wrestlers heights adversely.

Kane would be pushed down to 6'6 range for starters. Khali would be barely over 6'11, Show was around 1 inch shorter than him in most staredowns 5 years ago, and most would say that he always looked 7'1 range.

I still believe that in maximum posture he is closer to 6'11 than 6'10, he always manages to squeeze out extra height in staredowns if he is nose to nose with somebody and giving it everything, like he did with Khali, and Shaq a few years ago. In normal posture/slouching he can look a lot shorter.

Someone mentioned him being 6'9 on this site recently, now that is a joke.
RP said on 17/Nov/16

cobra said on 17/Nov/16
Hard to gauge his height given footwear and the fact that it appears he slouches a lot(400+ pounds will do that).

In his youth probably 7 foot. Nowadays anywhere from 6-10 to 6-11.

Big Show looks ~9cm taller than Kane - Show is a bit closer to the camera,
Kane looks max 14cm-15cm taller than the Miz.

If Big Show is 6ft10 flat, Kane is 6ft6.25in and Miz 6ft0.25in - sounds pretty legit

Rob are you just going to ignore this insane height difference between Shaq (who is 7'0" barefoot) and Big Show today? You're telling me there is 1.5" height difference between the 2 of them? Really?

Click Here
Editor Rob: I think it is probably fair to say it looked a good 2 inches, whether Show is only 6ft 10 or Shaq is a bit over 7ft is harder to say.

Show at 6ft 10 flat is entirely possible.

That was a long time ago, before either of them lost any height. Nash was at least 6ft9.5 at the time, plus he had a camera angle advantage over Show. He had a good 2.5 inches over Nash.




Wrong, watch the whole vid I posted, noway 2.5in between them if footwear is equal.

People have their choice to manipulate the truth. But not just i see 2" differences from shaq and big show and even my cousins i asked and my friend agree big show look 6'10 at most with shaq besides that big show have boots on and shaq dress shoes. People should keep in mind a fact..

He wouldn't do much in mma though as he isn't trained in any martial art or real wrestling. Akebono and Giant Silva were useless in mma. The pro wrestlers that have done well in mma (Shamrock, Severn, Lesnar, Lashley) all had strong amateur backgrounds. Angle in his peak, swagger, ziggler would have done well in mma most likely..undertaker, Kane, nash, rock and austin not so much







I agree with Big Show bad in MMA, most none or low steroid guys would... without roids Lesnar wouldn´t do much either. Same goes for Nash and Austin and Rock.
Kane is imo most part a natural strongman, he could do some good submission holds.
Taker was a real athlet, pretty bad ass guy and I´m sure he would've done great in MMA in his mid twenties

We have been commenting on that video for months now. I don't where you're getting 6'11.75" for Shaq when he is 7'2" in sneakers. Shaq is 7'1" and Show is about 6'10.5" and was never above 7'. 6'8" is absurd for Big Show. He is still about 4" taller than 6'6" minimum Kane.

I posted something similar on the Andre page:

I've been seeing the Shaq photo floating around celebheights (credit to whomever posted it first). I was actually just at Ripley's last weekend. Here is a photo of myself in sneakers next to the height ruler: Click Here and myself barefoot next to the height ruler: Click Here and here is Shaq next to the height ruler: Click Here

My photos were taken around 11:30am. I believe barefoot I'm about 5'10.25" and in my sneakers somewhere around 5'11.5"-5'11.75" (I may appear a bit taller but it's because of my hair. If you look closely you can see the top of my scalp LOL)

I propose anyone here who is good at photoshop to use these pictures to help with debating Big Show's height. It looks like there's a 2" difference between Shaq and Show here, right? Click Here anyone good at photoshop want to superimpose Big Show against the height ruler and match it up with photos with guys that are around 5'10"-6'?

I'd recommend using my barefoot photo (where I'm a little over 5'10") cuz I think it's a better angle.

I'm not good at photoshop so I don't know how feasible this is with camera angles and everything, but I figured it'd be worth a shot to ask.

Why do you still post your BS comparison with slouching Shaq???????????

The camera angle in my pic doesnt favour Shaq because Kane who should have the biggest advantage by YOUR theory, still comes out where he should be - so NO Cameraangle advantage to Shaq.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft: they're in the ring in front of each other and shaq is only about 1.5" taller. I'd give Shaq 6'11.75' and Show as 6'10.25. Give or take 1/4" for both

This shows shaq at 7'2. Obviously can't see footwear but possible trainers. This could explain why big show looks surprisingly shorter?

_________________

Great find. So Shaq is about 7'2" in what we can assume are sneakers. That would put him at about 7'1" barefoot or maybe a tad under. Shaq needs an upgrade to 7'1" in my opinion and Show should stay right were he is at 6'10.5".

Rob, how tall would you say Big Show is based on this pic?? Click Here

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would say that Piers height is probably between 5-11" to 5-11.5". Piers seems like he could stand up a little straighter. So, Big Show probably has actually has around 11" on Piers. So, to me the Big Show is looking around 6' 10.5" in that photo.

Not to mention the size of Show's boots. Show looks about 1' taller, but I'm sure he had a sizable footwear advantage.

In that photo Donald Trump looks to be at least an inch taller than Piers. Actually, to me Trump looks to be about 1.5" taller than Piers.

Even when Trump is standing further from the camera and the camera tilt favors Piers, Trump still comes out taller.

Most recent interview where Kane keeps saying he was 6'8 in high school. He may have grown even taller out of high school which is very common or stayed that height. Either way he hasn't shrunk that much and it's clear he's at least 6'7 now bc with comfortable poster he's taller than pen Jillette who said Kane was taller. Pen says he's 6'7 himself.

Seamus said on 31/Aug/16
If you look at Big Cass basketball web at NYU he is listed at 6-8 most likely measured with shoes on. Ron Reis was listed at 7-1 at Santa Clara Univ same as high school since his sophomore I doubt he grew more after college and he said he was taller then the big show whom I guess he was around 6-11 because he stated he was known to were lifts. Kevin Nash stated I think on Leno he was 6-9

When you make bold statements like that, you better be able to prove it. But instead you resort to your usual name-calling. No surprises there!
********************************************


no, if you disagree, prove me wrong or otherwise prove that Im usual a namecaller like in this bold statement.

You made the offense early in your post, so dont bitch around for another spank :))
I mean I didnt list you under the Andre peak 610"/ Big Show easy 7ft bashers.
So back to evidence...

The most part of your post now, fits much more with what I proved.

Shaq had 2" on Big Show in ring both standing straight.
Shaq had 2.5" on Big Show out of ring gear ( saying 3" or more like it looked its due to camera angle and Big Show having less posture),
both in dressshoes side by side and Big Show stretched out (watch the vid), Big Show has the cameraangle-advantage so lines wouldnt tell the truth here,
look where Big Shos eyeline is next to Shaq, that is easy a 2.5" gap between them,

so why believing in JTs wrong agenda, trying to say their footwear was equal in ring,
when its easy to understand that Big Shows heel is the same height inside as outside and Shaqs basketballshoe is inside lower than the outside design.
Chaz said on 14/Aug/16
dicksock said on 13/Aug/16 I like you Danimal, but exactly how long was Show over 500lbs? I would say from 2005-2006. For most of his career, he has been between about 350lbs-440lbs. Additionally, I am not familiar with any back, neck, or hip surgeries he has had. My guess would be that he was nearly 7' (maybe 6'11.5") and wore platform boots that made him about 7'1" in his prime. Now he is probably about 6'10.5". I think this site underestimates Shaq's height. I think he is still around 7'1" legit and at least 7'0.5". He looks way too tall next to The Rock, Charles Barkley, and John Jones to just be 7'0".
Click Here

Your right he's top weight he said was about 487lbs and that was for only a year or so, and the 7'1'' was in he's boots and the big trainners they wear .and this flat 7' for Shaq is rubbish the 7'08" is more the truth.if not everyone needs a downgrade you can't keep listing Hogan at 6'6'' and Andre at 7'.no way was Andre Shaq's height.

It doesnt change anything for Big Show b/c I was comparing his heel to his height, Shaq has his back not stretched out in your pic, watch the vid and see how he gains height stretching out.
Shaqs back is about as stretched out as Big Shows. Click Here
The only difference is Shaq is tilting his head a little bit more forward.
This is about the tallest Shaq stood in that match vs. the tallest Big Show stood.
Click Here
Big Show gains ~ of an inch and Shaq ~ of an inch. Again, at best theres a 2 inch difference between them.
*************************************************
I talk about nearly half inch advantage for Big Show, wich he easy has and you freak out??? Biased? Whats with this Click Here

Yes half an inch aint much, but youre pretty determined of knocking off that extra inch of Big Show.
*************************************************
You cant say the same thing for those red carpet videos.
You cant say otherwise...
There are different vids out there, they walk from one interview to another, I posted they are both in dress shoes... get your facts right. Click Here

I was talking of posture and camera angles, not footwear. Ive seen the vids that are out there. Here are a few examples of camera shots during those interviews:

The camera angles are all over the place and some of them make Big Show look well over 3 inches shorter than Shaq. No way did he look this short next to Shaq at Wrestlemania.
*************************************************
And when did the WWE ever claim Big Show was nearly 7ft tall. Never once did I hear them claim this. I challenge you to post proof of this claim.
So youre not Mr. Knowitall about Andre and Big Show, he was often announced at "standing nearly 7 feet tall" You can challenge your claiming arse and get your fact right before supporting your JT friend again.

When you make bold statements like that, you better be able to prove it. But instead you resort to your usual name-calling. No surprises there!

corrected the tilt using the wall behind Andre. Andre is clearly edging Wilt looking at the top of their heads, Wilts neck is straight while Andre for sure could stretch a bit out.
So all storys and faked comparisons about Wilt being taller than cowboybootet Andre are out of the window.

Andre standing straight was no less than 2,18m in cowboyboots, look at Arnie next to him....

So the minimum inf ootwear height there is

Wilt 2,17m
Andre 2,18m
Arnie 1,88m

so barefootheight:

Wilt 2,15m
Andre 2,12m
Arnie 1,86m

To those playing a revisionist of history with Big Show's PEAK height, I need to intervene. He was indeed significantly taller in the mid-late 90's. He was at least 7'0.5", if not a full 7'1".
*************************************************
So the heightloss-fetishist needs to intervene...
Its proved he wasnt even full 71" in giant soled boots, so unless you talk about measuring straight out of bed, 70.5"-71" is fanboyhype garbage as they tried hard to make him look as tall as possible in WCW.

Nash was 69" evening, 610" in normal wrestlingboots, Big Show in giant soled boots had 2.5" on him.
Big Show was 611" peak and is 610" today.
Agreed same heightloss as Andre.

Hogan, Piper are heavier stories regarding their health, especially Piper who lost about 4" due to removed spineparts b/c of cancer

Does anybody see less than 11" between Rock and Shaq? I mean let's get serious. Shaq looks to have about a foot on the bare minimum 6'2" Rock. So what is going on? At the risk of sounding dumb, maybe Shaq grew. I just can't see the Rock as less than around 6'3" because he is still taller than Roman Reins. Yet, can anyone dispute the fact that Shaq looks around 1' taller than him?

Rob, I would love to read your thoughts on the Shaq/Barkley/Rock picture I posted. Surely it contradicts the listings on your site by far.

Rob, how can Big Show go from looking 7'1'' in his prime to this listed height?? I'd appreciate if you answer this
**********************************************************************************************************************************

Why not watch all the evidence posted here during the last week.
He was not 71" legit, not even 71" in his big soled boots.

Big soled boots proved. fact
having 6" on 65"-65.75" John Tenta. Big Show with Big boots so 5-5.25" barefoot. fact
having 4.5-5 on 66-66.5" Haystacks without his giant footwearadvantage. fact
Looked barefoot ~ 611" with Akebono who was meaured 68 1/3" as a young sumo - wich for sure was early in the day

Compared to straight 1987 Andre
Click Here



So proof he was 71" prime without help of Big Big Boots if you want to argue that.
Imo he was a tad or two taller than 7ftpeak, measured within 1hour out of bed and 611"-611.25" evening.
Since I estimate based on Robs idea of claiming eveningheight, I would list him 611.25" peak.
I would classify him as a very weak 7footer, but rather a solid/strong 611" guy wich fits better if you see him next to solid 7 Footers.

_________

I'm not Rob, but I try to give you a reasonable answer. Big Show never really did look 7'1" to begin with. Even on his debut, he was shorter than the 7'1" listed Ron Reis (the Yeti). He may have been about 6'11.5" barefoot, but wore big heeled boots that were comparable to cowboy boots in terms of the boost they gave him. This, along with his lean physique and big hair, created the illusion he was taller than he was. Today, after decades of carrying around so much weight, he has lost about 1" of height. The evidence for this is his numerous recent encounters with ~7'0.5" Shaq where he looked 2"-3" shorter on a consistent basis. He may have been close to 7' in his prime but is now in the 6'10" range. His 7'1" listing in college was probably just his height in big basketball sneakers and possibly a roundup from that.

Big Show with at least 4.5 inches over Strowman...

Strowman wears solid 1.5' boots from what I've seen so no advantage to anybody in the footwear department. Show at 6'10.5 would equal a 6'6 flat Strowman and I can't buy him being that short.

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

4.5" noway, youre right wit the footwear, but putting Big Shows head at a tad more than 12" its a 3.25" gap at best. 610.5" Big Show = 67.25" Strowman

610.5" is pretty fair for Big Show as he looked 610"flat next to Shaq with both in dressshoes.


Click Here

Big Show is closer to 610"flat than 610.5" evening today.
Imo 67.25" is a tad or two to high for Strowman, he looks more a weak 67"/ 66.75 outside the ring Click Here

Here the difference is less than 2 inches. Both men have good posture and Big Shows footwear advantage is nowhere near as large as you make it out to be. Big Show still looks 611 there.
And thats a full body shot, where we can see their posture and where the camera angle isnt favouring either man. You cant say the same thing for those red carpet videos.

so Big Show Lover,

why not talking about the high camera angle reducing the gap??? here is a head level shot with Big Show straight and clearly 2"+ Click Here

Heres their footwear from the red carpet, both in derssshoes Click Here
both man standing straight and clearly 2.5" + , for sure youre not talking about Show being closer to the camera,
but find excuses for Shaq on higher ground - lol

therere a few different vids, they walk from one interview to the next and the gap is always 2.5"-3".


I pegged Big Shows footwear advantage in ring at 0.4"-0.5" wich he has and wich fits with the red carpet pic with both in equal footwear.

Fact1 Shaq in ring with 0.4-0.5" less footwear ~2.25" taller
Fact2 Shaq red carpet in equal footwear ~2.5-2.75" taller

No, Khali is shorter, his head is lower and therefore closer to the camera wich gives Shaq a visual disadvantage, Shaq is clearly the taller man there if the camera goes higher.


Andre was 2,11m peak evening imo same as peak Big Show.
Khali 2,13-2,14m during his first WWE years, maybe taller as a young bodybuilder... Never had a full 6 inches on Taker more 5-5.5"

the truble with all this is you are showing most wrestlers in the Evening,and men of this height or weight are going to be at least 1 each shorter,than the morning,and the only good comparason on this page is the Haystacks Big show,and the Tenta Big Show,and all you can tell from that is Haystacks is taller than Tenta because he comes higher up the nose even with thiner shoes,

So unless you can find Tenta and Andre in the same upright stand off,it's all if's and buts.

I think Big Show peak was 7' morning 6'11'' evening,so he should be listed here as 6'11.5'', Andre was 6'11'' morning 6'10'' Evening,so should be listed as 6'10.5''. IMO

So Big Show has a 9.5" face now? your nere 2" out

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

Yeah and Big Show comes out 9ft tall if I put his big time raised head to 12" ......

The scale doesnt lie there, Big Show is losing easy 2" headlength by titlting his head that much to raise his chin and eyeline - clearly nothing wrong there.

And no, Im not saying Andre is 2" taller than Big Show but for sure Big Show isnt taller than Andre.

The middle pic Big Show has about 1" position disadvantage to the high camera, no more so.
Upper right has the real gap between Shaq and Show there, Shaq easy has 1"-1.25" in dressshoes on a cowboybooted Big Show.



So how can anyone believe Andre was 610" flat and Big Show 7ft legit?????????????????????????

Putting Big Show at a realistic 7ft flat in wrestlingboots shows his boots give easy 1.8".
Shaq comes out at 72.5" in 1.3"-1.4", even if Shaqs footwear gives him more, it doesnt change anything for Big Show.
****If Shaq is really 7ft flat, he would be ~71.5" in this footwear,wich means Big Show would be 611" in 1.8" footwear/ 69.2" barefoot.*****

This has been pointed out to you before, but you have captured a staredown between Big Show & Shaq, where the high camera angle is favouring Shaq. Look at the alignment of their feet, Big Show is standing slightly closer to the camera, which in this case is a disadvantage.
**************************************************


It doesnt change anything for Big Show b/c I was comparing his heel to his height, Shaq has his back not stretched out in your pic, watch the vid and see how he gains height stretching out.


Here the difference is less than 2 inches. Both men have good posture and Big Shows footwear advantage is nowhere near as large as you make it out to be. Big Show still looks 611 there.
*************************************************

I talk about nearly half inch advantage for Big Show, wich he easy has and you freak out??? Biased? Whats with this Click Here


You cant say the same thing for those red carpet videos.
*************************************************
You cant say otherwise...
There are different vids out there, they walk from one interview to another, I posted they are both in dress shoes... get your facts right. Click Here



There are several recent pictures of Big Show standing next to tall athletes.
*************************************************

Measure them at their evening height.... How much of them get measured at their usual eveningheight????
Remember I talk about Robs systemabout his own height of 173cm... giving eveningheight



How much taller do you think Andre was than Big Show, considering youre claiming a cowboy booted Andre was taller than Wilt, Wilt was taller than Shaq and Shaq was over an inch taller than a cowboy booted Big Show?
***********************************************
Is it a claim that Wilt was taller than Shaq???

Andre edged Wilt in cowboyboots standing at his maximum for sure Click Here

So thats not claiming, like you claim....



You recently claimed you thought both of them were ~611 prime, but comments like these leads me to believe you think Andre was around 2 inches taller.
**********************************************
Andres, cowboyboots gave no less than 6cm next to Wilt, Andre was about 218cm in them, so he was 211-212cm peak.
Big Show peak wasnt taller, today, recent years is shorter.


And when did the WWE ever claim Big Show was nearly 7ft tall. Never once did I hear them claim this. I challenge you to post proof of this claim.
********************************************

So youre not Mr. Knowitall about Andre and Big Show, he was often announced at "standing nearly 7 feet tall"
You can challenge your claiming arse and get your fact right before supporting your JT friend again

Rob why did you give him 6'10.5 if that's the most he can look today?
Editor Rob: looking and measuring for some guys can be a difference that you don't see in videos. Show might look 6ft 10 at times, but getting measured, maybe he can squeeze upwards more than we think.

I'm not saying Show is in the 6'10" range for sure, but I will say there is at least 2" between him and Shaq. Anybody who thinks Shaq is 7'0" and Show is 6'11" is blind. Perhaps it's 7'1" and 6'11" respectively. But, you can't have it both ways.

Big Show consistently looked 611 next to these guys, unless all of them are shorter than what theyre listed at or claim to be.

I met Big Show in person and I high-fived him outside of his travel bus at a WWE event in Miami, FL. He is credibly between 6'11" and 7 feet. His college basketball profile listed him as 7'1", and it's possible that he lost 1 to 2 inches in height even before age 40, because of the stress that gravity exerts on a person who weighs over 400 pounds.

Show had bigger footwear in the second staredown but no way do you go from looking near identical a few years back to looking like... He hasn't lost much if any height in that short space of time...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Big Show was in big cowboyboots facing Shaq the first time and Shaq stood relaxed lokking down in Big Shows eyes and was still 3cm taller.
Why not talking about Shaqs posture... The red carpet vid is the only one he really stretched out and stood straight for a long time.
At WM32 there was a brief moment he stretched out and gained a visible amount of height, having easy 2" on Big Show in his big soled boots.

And Khali was never a full 71" in WWE and looked a tad or two shorter than Shaq in their pic.
Khalis eyeline is at Shaqs nosetip.
The pic is even favouring Khali, look at the shoulderheight, Shaq is clearly the taller man.

I saw this guy in 2013 at the con I met Piper and can confirm he looks his 196cm claim - no mor though, do you see 20cm there? Click Here




Big Show at his peak was 7ft early morning and about 611" evening, with ~1.75" sole he fooled people in wcw for 7+.
He was often announced in wwe at standing nearly 7 feet tall... They wouldnt do that with a legit 7 Footer.

Why do Wrestler always look shorter if they meet or are compared to Basketballplayer...
Hogan never looked taller than Barkley next to mene gene, was towered by Shaq and even 66.5" Rodman had inches on him in wcw...

Big Show/Giants heels look really big but if they are giving a 2 boost, Andres either well under 50 tall or his cowboy boots gave him more than 3 inches Click Here A 2 boost from a wrestling boot is enormous. Big Shows WCW boots probably gave him close to a 1.5 boost and Haystacks around 0.75, or up to a 0.75 difference.

Dicksock, its been many years since I saw that information on a website about Andre being estimated at 69. I dont recall which site it was but believe it also mentioned that Andre had a photo taken with players from the NY Knicks back in the 1970s and really did not look that tall.

Andre looks tall in that video with Gene and Earthquake since he has his head titled back, making the gap between his chin and the top of Genes head look large. He's probably 69ish if he lowered his head Click Here Big Show looks really tall here since his head is titled back. Click Here Click Here

The writer describes Andre as 6'10 300lbs. He claims he was 5" taller and about 70lbs heavier than the 6'5 230lb Wepner.


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


Actually they wrote probably 5 inches....

_____________

Well, if the reporter is stating Chuck is 6'5" and that Andre had about 5" on him, that is the equivalent of him saying Andre was about 6'10". It's the same as him saying Andre was about 70lbs heavier than the 230lb Wepner being the same as him saying he looked about 300lbs. Personally, I think Andre looked about 6'11"/6'11.5" and about 380-400lbs next to Wepner. As far as Chuck being over 6'5", that is unfounded. He has claimed 6'5" for himself and has always been listed as 6'5".

Here is a very good quality pic of Wepner and Andre: Click Here

Andre looks about 6-6.5" taller and may have a footwear advantage.

Actually they wrote probably 5 inches.... and 65" flat may be a little to low for Chuck, so not real measurements.
It sounds like they had problems with Andres 74" billed height and tried to make him as low as possible... reminds me of someone.
But with claiming Andre was only 70lbs heavier than Chuck they lose all credibility (65"ers Hogan and Tiny Lister were around 300lbs at their heavyest), Andre was easy around 400lbs back then, give or take a bit.

So Red, now he's getting a 2+ inch boost from his boots??? Sure. Plus the height under the pivot point of the foot, not the back of the heel, is what determines the amount of boost. You already knew that though so why did you draw the line at the back of the heel - and draw the line too high and use screen caps when the shadow under the boot makes the heel look thicker..

A 6'11" peak big show puts Andre at 6'9" tops. Could be, and maybe the sportswriters and b-ball players who met Andre back in the 1970s were correct when they pegged Andre at 6'9"..


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

Usually a guilty men does judge others by his own standards.

Lol Im not a Big Show, not a JT hater. But if it comes to Andre, things get difficult with your agenda.

So now Andre was 2" shorter than Big Show, because someone said someone said so....

Shaq is under 71" and more than 7ft and was easy an inch taller than Big Show in Cowboyboots during their very first face to face.

Andre and Paul were pretty close at their peak, between 611"-611.5" evening.

Big Show is now 44 and seems about an inch shorter than his peak, no more so.

Andre started to shrink in height between 35 and 40, still looked 610" during the early nineties, so how can the 69" peak storys be true?!!

Big Show had way more than 0.5-0.75" footwear advantage. At least 1.25", 1.5" might be closer.
Haystacks was in pretty low soled footwear wich gave 0.5" -max 0.65" height.

Big Show was 5.5" - max 6" taller than Haytacks, Old Haystacks was 66.75"-67"max in his thin soled boots. He looked just a tad or two taller than John Tenta.

So peak Big Show was 70.25- 71" in nearly Kane 1997 heeled boots. His boots gave around 1.75"-2" so he was a 611"guy peak.

Studd would be equal in height to old Haystacks since he has a tadmore footwar.

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 67.5"-68" even without heightloss if his measurement was a morning measurement.
In JTs pic Akebono looks 1.75" taller than Haystacks but has a footwear advantage ~0.5" . Haystacks imo was 66" or a tad over back then, so Akebono comes out a weak 68"-67.5".

611" or a tad more is Big Shows peakheight, today he looks 610.5"max and solid 2"-2.5" shorter than 70.5"-70.75" 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)

@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.

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

Theres no point posting a screen shot where the high camera angle favors Shaq. Click Here So Tatanka is really 69 and Kane 73? 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 dont 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 68 so we know its poor evidence to gauge his height.

Akebono measured 68 1/3 for sumo. Even if hed lost a little height by then, his posture is better than Big Shows 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.

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


Noway, what does your high camera angle bad quality pic with Haystacks prove?
Big Show has his eyeline raised bigtime, its no more than 3" between him and Akebono, who has to be a legit 68" to make Big Show even 611"

They stand side by side at a red carpet... no uneven ground, it only proves Shaqs shoes in ring are not as big as Big Shows.
Shaqs son can look a weak 68" too,so hes not proved 69"


During there WM face of theres 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 its 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 72", managed by Big John Studd who was around 66" back then he looked 6-6.5" taller, so hes 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 611" with 67"-67.5" Undertaker
Click Here about 3" taller than max 68" 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 66"-66.5" 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 70" 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 wouldnt be billed under 72"-3" as a main eventer




Rob, 611" peak and max 610" 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 theres no "ground effect", look at Shaqs son beside them, Shaqs height on Big Show is still shocking.

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.

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.
