Rob 7ft.25 peak?
mrtguy said on 22/Mar/17
Rob, I think 6'10.75'' to 6'11.25'' seems more fair than just 6'10.5'', the problem is Big Show's very big head and wide figure fools people to give illusion he's shorter I still think he could measure 7 ft depending on his day lol
Editor Rob: imagine Big Show had an extra 2cm with a 'bust a gut' measurement...I think the mark he is on is the lowest I'd go for today.

Show doesn't come out more than an inch taller in any of them.

Russell Okung's official NFL Combine measurements:
HT: 6'5.25"
WT: 307 lbs
Okung is a legit 6'5" barefoot ! Big Show looks a legit 7'0" barefoot with him! Unless Big Show is slightly tip toeing ?? One thing is for sure, Since dropping from 435-440 lbs down to 385-390 lbs, his posture has improved by leaps & bounds!!!!

Philip McMullin well your "classing" would be wrong. Inaccurate. Your opinion on 5" being "not so much" is also wrong. 5" taller or longer is significantly BIGGER in every way way. Nobody can deny that. Forgive my hostility but it's insane to think 5" isn't way bigger.

I think 207-208cm is big shows barefoot height nowadays

I agree. People (including Rob) is for some reason ignoring the interview between Shaq and Big Show from a few months ago, where Shaq is literally dwarfing him today. Back in the mid-late 90's, they would have been the EXACT same height, if not Big Show having the edge back then. Imo, he's lost a tremendous amount of height. He was 7'0.5"-7'1" in the 90's and is looking to like a flat 6'10" (even 6'9" and change) AT BEST today.
Slim said on 22/Feb/17
Philip McMullin oh now the story changes? You said you didn't have to look up now you're saying "all the way up" 6'4 compared to 6'9 is a HUGE difference. I garuantee you my 6'9" co worker Mark would tower your 6'4" body. Regardless of "broadness"

@slim I can talk to anyone of that height without looking all the way up at them, I can make a 6ft8 or 9 guy look 6'6 due to my broadness
Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/17
Slim ,

You asked how is 6'6" not a giant-like, as we were mentioning big cas . We were comparing Andre and show and how they were "giant" on a different level. Again, if you can't recognize show and andre's size as being in a different level then some typical 6'7" guy you have problems .
Slim said on 20/Feb/17
Philip McMullin if you're 6'4 and stood next to guys 6'9 then it is impossible NOT to look up to them.... your math must be off.
Slim said on 20/Feb/17
Jordan87 when did I compare those 2? Lol you must be the slow one.
Jordan87 said on 19/Feb/17
Slim,

If you can't tell the difference between a guy like big cas and big show then you may be a bit slow.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 19/Feb/17
6ft6in is pretty tall but NOT giant.

Slim guys need to be way taller than that to be giant -7ft+
Massive guys 400lbs+ enter giant territory at 6ft10in ...
Slim said on 19/Feb/17
How is anything over 6'6 not giant like? You guys must be 6'4" and I guarantee I'm probably taller than most of you on here. I work with 2 guys over 6'6" and I know first hand what that looks like. Staring at photos don't do hardly any justice.

@Jordan87 Big Cass is just Test version 2.0. Giants in wwe are usually 7ft 330+ pounders! 270lbs is hardly giant like. Big Show is the best giant in the last 20 years


Yeah, but you don't necessarily have to be 7 ft tall or 330 lbs to be giant, people with acromegaly show signs of GIANT just look at Big Foot Silva and Maurice Tillet they aren't 7 feet but they do look like giants!

Jordan87 said on 17/Feb/17
mrtguy,

Correct. Due to their Condition Big Show and Andre were unnaturally Big. If Big Cas is the next gen Giant that they are going to try to push then they are in trouble.

Strowman is one strong dude however. Not in the "Giant" Category, but as far as power, he is right up there with the best of them. We may very well never see a "Giant" again since the modern WWE Wrestlers seem to be getting smaller.

Don't even mention great Khali b/c he was the most uncoordinated, charisma lacking piece of sh!t the WWE has ever hired.
mrtguy said on 16/Feb/17
Comparing Big Show to Andre whether who is better, stronger and agile is getting irritating, both men or GIANTS should say have such natural feats of strength from the condition. In my opinion I don't think there is no one who you could think is more GIGANTIC than those two GIANT of men physically or imposing nowadays!
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Undertaker Frank,

I have yet to See Pics of Andre looking taller than Big Show next to Mean gene. ( Giant was in WCW he boots were thicker than Andress but not as Thick as they were in WWF/WWE).

Next to The same people Andre has not really looked taller than Big Show.

Im Not saying Show is alot taller than Andre. Maybe an Inch.

Big Sow Maintained a Much More Muscular frame, on top of being faster and More Agile. Andre's Accent killed alot of his Mic. Big Show is quite entertaining at times.
Undertaker Frank said on 15/Feb/17
Jordan i Believe Show was more Agile than Andre but Taller ?? Show wore Big heeled soles & Possibly lifts Andre wore wrestling boots with a .5 heel in the ring I believe they would be real close in height
Jordan87 said on 15/Feb/17
Prime for Prime Big Show was taller, Heavier, stronger, faster, and Better on the Mic Than Andre the Giant. As I have said on the Andre Boards, if Show was around the same time, he would have been by far the better Big Man.

After the weight lost recently Show's posture has certainly improved. He looked to be a good 6'10 with Strowman.
berta said on 9/Feb/17
6 foot 11 peak 6 foot 10 now. give ore take half inch. and of course 1 inch taler in morning. that my guess.

I got really up close on the big show about 2 years back in San Jose wrestle mania, I'm telling you 110% real truth.. NO WAY BIG SHOW IS 7 FEET.... I WAS CLOSE.... HE WAS NOT MORE THAN ABOUT 6'8 IF YOU ASK ME

I think now Big Show is 6'10.5"-6'11" and about 390 lbs. He is in great shape now.

Do people just want to ignore the fact that 7'0" MAX Shaq has several inches on him recently? How can anyone claim anything over 6'10" for him today (which is being generous)? Click Here

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

I don't believe Shaq is only 7' max. I think he's more like 7'1" and he's about 2/2.5" taller than Show. No way in the world is Show anything less than a solid 6'10". He looks too tall next to everyone else.

@ Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25)
Even in that picture the height difference between Show and Khali is very limited.
(A reminder is don't look at the height of their eyes because Show has a huge forehead)
Plus at that time he already put on a lot of weight and started to shrink.
Sean said on 2/Feb/17
Should be interesting to see Show vs Shaq at this years wrestle mania. Show's posture looks to have improved since he has lost weight, so the staredown with Shaq and Show at WM could be telling. IMO the difference will still be max 2" (maybe 1.5") difference:
Big Show: 6'10.5" barefoot, 7'0" in wrestling boots
Shaq: 7'0.5" barefoot, 7'2" in his sneakers

When it comes to Big Show's peak height, especially when he debuted in WCW back in 1995, you can make the case he was legit 7'0" tall and perhaps a little over - 7'0.25"-7'0.5".
mrtguy said on 1/Feb/17

Strowman still in normal footwear, Big Show in his big soled and its max 4inches, more like 3.75.

Show has at least 0.5in more sole, could be up to 1 inch.

Big Show is 6ft10.25 or a bit less barefoot

Definitely no less than 450lbs today. At his leanest he got down to 385-390lbs after the WWE threatened to fire him because he'd ballooned to over 500lbs.
rikashiku said on 30/Jan/17
Now a days Show is around 380-400lbs and looks great. Strowman announced on instagram, after weeks of intense cardio, that he dropped 40lbs from 390. He's been about 350 or so pounds for most of last year and hoenstly he suits this look. Very menacing.
mrtguy said on 29/Jan/17
Rob, do you think the 6'11'' listing is fair now or do you have to seem face to face with Shaq in order to change the mark??

Thank you for responding
Editor Rob: you can make a case for anywhere between 6ft 10 and 11.

I think in Monday pictures Strowman's arms were slightly bigger than Show's.
Of course in Show's 500ish pound days he was bigger in every way, but it's arguable who has the bigger built right now.

If Strowman is actually 385 pounds, Then the SHow is still over 400. He has the same build as Strowman and is at least 3" taller. Show says he is 370, Making Strowman about 350 in my book.
miko said on 27/Jan/17
Its hard to argue Show is looking any less than 6'11 with Strowman.

Remember from the eyes to the top of Big Show's head is around 5.5 inches.
Slim said on 26/Jan/17
Khali is taller than show so I didn't need to include him. Nash Morgan and Jones were not closer in height to show than Kane was. As for the other guys you mentioned. Never heard of them or seen them. I've seen Morgan without his lifts with Nash. Nash is taller by far.

I'd say Paul is a good example of a solid 6'9" guy which is made all the more imposing when you factor in his current weight of 370 lbs. He looked noticeably larger than Braun Strowman on Raw this week who stands at 6'6.5" and weighs 360 lbs. He also drawfs Brock Lesnar who is 6'1" and 290 lbs.



WOW You must of had a coma or something, Big Show's height mostly comes from the head proportion, just like Andre 12 and over inch head.

Slim said on 24/Jan/17
I knew all along Kane stacked up taller to big show than anyone else on the roster since the 90s.
---------------

Khali, Morgan, jones, nash (in 2002 and 2011) all stacked up better next to wight. Cottonwood, Jackson andrews, giant titan were certainly taller than Kane and Tron the northern Irish nightmare who was under contract for a while is easily taller than Kane in person.

Strowman is 199 cm (6 6 0.25). In the last video with Show he's about 4 inches shorter than him (take a look at the end of the video...cameras can easily confuse your mind due to different camera angles ). Yet Show has definitely a footwear advantage which brings the difference down to 3 inches or so. Therefore I still believe Show is 6 9 1/2 (207 cm). Maybe as said 6 10 as peak height (208 cm) in the morning/early afternoon. I'm curious to see him again next to Shaq at WM. That will make it more clear....
James B said on 25/Jan/17
Rob although he does look over 6'10 perhaps though strowman would look much taller compared to showif he was not so heavy and stood as well as big show.

I'd imagine strowman walks around at 6'6 with all his extra weight and not perfect posture unlike show.

I wouldn't say he's dwarfing Strowman, the difference looks the same as ever. Maybe a tad more due to Show being able to straighten his back out a bit more now but there's still only about 3 inches in it.
Height Fanic said on 24/Jan/17
Thanks Miko for the footage, that's a very good 4 inches between them. Big Show's boots may give him 1~2cm advantage though.

Show has lost 70+ pounds and is now apparently down to 370lbs, and as you can see here it has hugely improved his posture.

He is dwarfing 6'7 Braun Strowman here... not something a 6'9 guy would do eh?



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


Strowman is back to normal soled footwear there and looks easy 4-4.5inches shorter, in bigger footwear it looked less than 3.5 in some matches.

Big Show has the footwearadvantage with his big soles in this staredown but I don´t see him under 6ft10.25in there.
Strowman did look under 6ft7in like 6ft6.5n during his early matches...

I don't know what he's been doing in the gym, but he hasn't look this good since 1997. Where his posture was pretty awful in the last decade, it's near perfect nowadays.

Click Here
Nothing wrong with his posture here. He's tilting his head a bit backwards, creating the illusion that the gap between him and Strowman is a bit bigger than it really is. He also has a slight camera advantage. Although the difference between them is probably close to 5 inches, when adjusting Big Show's head and putting it in a similar position as Strowman's head. Big Show has a footwear advantage, but probably no more than 0,5 inch.

Click Here

If Big Show is now 370lbs, how much would you say Strowman is. Big Show still is noticeably bigger than Strowman. I'd say he could be about 50lbs heavier than Strowman, especially since Big Show's bone structure is much larger than Strowman's.

Akebono always looked like Undertaker next to Big Show, so his evening height would be 201-202cm.

I saw him listed as high as 204cm in sumo, wich I think was a morning measurement.

Baba was in the 6'8" range in his prime and Big Show was a solid 6'11" guy and possibly 7' in his prime. Akebono is 6'7"-6'8" himself and would only be a little shorter than Baba.

JT I already modified my estimation for Big Cass @ 6 8 1/2 (204 cm).
The point is that footwear has big influence on the height of these guys. In my opinion Big Show normally wears boots who can lift him by 2 inches. As a matter of fact when he wears dress shoes or sneakers he is definitely shorter! Same for Shaq O' Neal. I am not changing my mind on Show height (207 cm) and I agree on Shaq height (213 cm as he is shorter than Jabbar by 4 cm today. Kareem is no more than 217 as we was 218 when he was young). Of course my estimations consider an average height of whole day (for Guinness World Record measurement the rule is to take three measurement during the day - morning, afternoon, evening - and then calculate the average height).
Relevant Undertaker he is shorter than Strowman who is a couple of inches shorter than Big Cass (199 cm). My guess for Taker is therefore197 cm. Kane is in between the two (198 cm). When he's next to Taker there is a very small difference (half inch).

I remember reading something years ago about how Big Show in 2006 purposely gained weight in the build up to the Lashley match because he wanted to be his biggest ever. I think he'd been steadily creeping over 510-520 but ate his way over 550 lbs at the end of 2006 and Lashley could barely lift him. He wanted to be huge like Andre I heard, by the look of him he was too
Mark said on 9/Jan/17
Please take a look at the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 32. Shaq is way taller than Show and Kane. If Shaq is 7 ft then Kane can't be more than 6 ft 6 (198 cm) and Show can't be taller than 6 ft 9 1/2 (207 cm)...I can say 6 ft 8.25 for Big Cass (204 cm) since he's variously listed at 6 ft 8 or 6 ft 9 and have double-checked his footwear...but can't change my mind for Kane and Show... Talking about tall wrestlers Braun Strawman is 6ft 6 1/2 (199 cm) to me, slightly taller than Taker (197 cm).

I found this footage of Big Show and Nash together at the end of WW3 in 1996:
Click Here

It is very interesting. Both were in ring gear, and there are times when Show only looked 1" taller. There are times when he looked 3" taller. We know Nash was no more than 6'9" because of how he stacked up next to 6'8 range Tyler Mane. One thing I can say is this should completely destroy the people who think peak Paul Wight was like 2-3" taller than a peak Andre. Andre in 1990 stacked up as good next to Tyler Mane than a peak Paul Wight did next to Nash. Once again, we know that Nash and Mane were virtually the same height.

Heightcrazyred, you should make some screencaps from this footage. Maybe compare it with Andre and Mane. Based on everything I've seen, I would go with 6'11.5" prime and 6'10.5" now. Just the same as Andre.

Yeah, I agree with you Big Show definitely looked heavier than Big Daddy V for sure, his arms looked unreal Click Here
George MacAree's chest was 76''Click Here and he is short. I reckon Big Show's chest had to be 80 inches especially with his width and acromegalic build. Big Show was probably around 555-570 Pounds at his heaviest if you seen his match with Lashely it just says it all

Holly Hell at the vid of Nash being taller than show. "Forced perspective"? Why would they TRY to make Nash look taller than their GIANT? Is this why Nash always said he was the one true giant???

RP said on 15/Dec/16
DickSock! Pro wrestling has a history of sticking guys at their designated billed weights, even if they lose a bunch of weight...or gain in some cases such as Adrian Adonis. Big Show had been down to 415-420 lbs for several months, but...WWE was still billing him @ 450 lbs & 441 lbs! Back several years ago when he got huge & gained massive weight & was in the 470-500 lbs range, WWE were billing him @ 475/485, sometimes 500! They Kept him at those billings for over a year after he dropped back down to 440-450. Was just saying it was refreshing to see them actually announce someone at the true legit current weight. They've only done that a handful of times over the 30-40 years. Especially when they want to portray a 7'0" & 450 lbs giant... Like I said, it was refreshing to see, since they had still been billing him at 450 & 441 for months,...when he was actually 420-ish. Just like with Andre who was legitimately 500 lbs to 520 lbs in 1986-early 1988...however, in late 1988/early 1989 Andre had briefly dropped back down to 470-480 lbs...but, was still being billed @ 520 lbs. So, yes ...a lot of times pro wrestlers true weights are a "secret"...just like there true heights. Even Big Show laughed his ass off at the thought of WCW billing him @ 7'4" back in the 1990's!

Moreover at a recent show Shaq was clearly taller than him. If you consider that Shaq is 213 cm tall (7ft) Show can't be taller than 207 cm. He lost height throughout the years due to weight and wrestling matches...He was 211 cm tall (6ft 11in) at his peak. Rob what is your opinion? Thanks

If you actually look at what they are wearing in the ring, Big Show does not have a footwear advantage.

You can NOT say how much Shaqs shoes add really, its design outside, not the height the shoes are inside.

If you actually look at what they are wearing in the ring, Big Show does not have a footwear advantage. They've never looked as far apart in the ring as they did on the red carpet, so my only conclusion is big show was slouching heavily which he tends to do given his weight, and which people can do in tight suits.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Those stock exchange pics are showing Paul is now only 6'10" barefoot, if Glen is 6'7" barefoot?... Also looks 6'10" to 6'10.5" with The Miz.
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 and Kane out of gear and in dress shoes in August this year

Video Click Here



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.
Barefoot it's 1.5-2in between them.

Rob, when you picture Big Show next to Sultan do you think it will look short but NOT small??
Editor Rob: it will be a big enough difference, but the bulkiness of Big Show might still be an impressive sight beside Sultan.

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..
drummer7777 said on 4/Nov/16
True that is photo shop and it would seem to prove accurate according to "DraftExpress" showing Shaq to be 7'0 feet without shoes and that photoshop picture showing Shaq in the 7'1 range with shoes on..... heights will vary with shoes...
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
I thought big show look 2" shorter than a 7 footer shaquille o'neal. If anyone buy this 6'10.5 then shaquille o'neal would be 7'0.5


Big Show 208cm
Shaquille O'neal 213cm

Rob, don't you think Michael Kingma can be 6'8'' I mean he looks it with you but he has giant head, but not as big as Andre's or Big Show??

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

No way he is below 6'11" today when standing fully upright compared to 7'1" Shaq, and was likely a hair above 7'0" at his peak. There is NO chance he has lost 2" by his age is rediculous.

I have doubt Shaq was under 7'2'' on the red carpet, as he was still noticeably taller than his 6'8'' son who had his hair pointing upward.

I heard that it was later admitted that the person misheard & misspoke Big Show's size...said (6'7") when it was supposed to be (6'11")...and said (325), when was supposed to have said (425)... And 6'11" & 425 is very, very believable & most likely the accurate truth right now.

Looked every bit a giant during his early years. Possibly could have maxed at 7'0.5. Gives a 6'10.5 impression now mainly owing to poor posture, but still a good 6'11 potentially.

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.

in that wwe faceoff big show was about an inch to an inch and a half shorter than shaq, whos listed as 7 feet 1 with shoes on. No way big show is 7 feet tall.
