It should be 100% obvious to anyone that Shaq is at least 2" taller than Big Show. If you can't see that, you're delusional. Just look at them together at the ESPYs. Enough bs excuses. It's beyond obvious that Shaq is at least 2" taller and maybe closer to 3.

The same question could be asked of you. The high camera angle in your pic favors Shaq. Why do you keep avoiding the full body screen shot where they are equidistant from the camera? Click Here Click Here

You can speculate all you want about footwear but they looked pretty close in height Click Here


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


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

The camera angle in my pic doesn´t 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.

I´m closer to the their footwearheight than your biased 7ft Big Show/ 6´10" Andre wet fantasy



Do YOU watch the pics posted here???

@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

Then how can you have Hogan at 6’5” or more? Click Here shaq's in sandals and Hogan in b-ball shoes.

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".

I know Kane is not as far forward as Show and Shaq but give or take half an inch.

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.

Slim said on 3/Sep/16
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 Nash stated he was 6-11 barefoot on Leno
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

No way is Kane above 6'6.5" barefoot. I'd say he is about 6'6.5" barefoot and is about 6'8" in his big heels. Perhaps he was 6'7" when he was younger.

Big Show in 2006 was huge - he was nothing less than 530 lbs, probably more like 550+ You only have to look at the Lashley match to see how much larger he was, his legs and arms were huge and he had a big belly on him. Although he was out of shape he really looked like a giant and dwarfed Lashley

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 I´m usual a namecaller like in this bold statement.

You made the offense early in your post, so don´t bitch around for another spank :))
I mean I didn´t list you under the Andre peak 6´10"/ 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 it´s 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 wouldn´t 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 JT´s wrong agenda, trying to say their footwear was equal in ring,
when it´s easy to understand that Big Shows heel is the same height inside as outside and Shaq´s 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.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16
It doesn´t 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.
Shaq’s back is about as stretched out as Big Show’s. 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 ~ ¼ of an inch and Shaq ~ ½ of an inch. Again, at best there’s 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 ain’t much, but you’re pretty determined of knocking off that extra ½ inch of Big Show.
*************************************************
You can’t say the same thing for those red carpet videos.
You can´t 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. I’ve 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 you´re 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...
It´s proved he wasn´t even full 7´1" in giant soled boots, so unless you talk about measuring straight out of bed, 7´0.5"-7´1" is fanboyhype garbage as they tried hard to make him look as tall as possible in WCW.

Nash was 6´9" evening, 6´10" in normal wrestlingboots, Big Show in giant soled boots had 2.5" on him.
Big Show was 6´11" peak and is 6´10" 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.

Carrying around over 500 pounds for years and years and taking major bumps, plus having height reducing surgeries (back, neck, hip) have all chopped away at his height over time (same thing happened to Hogan, Roddy Piper, Billy Graham, The Undertaker, Andre the Giant and many others). Today he's floating around that 6'10" mark imo. In other words, he's followed in the footsteps of his hero (Andre the Giant).

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 7´1" legit, not even 7´1" in his big soled boots.

Big soled boots proved. fact
having 6" on 6´5"-6´5.75" John Tenta. Big Show with Big boots so 5-5.25" barefoot. fact
having 4.5-5 on 6´6-6´6.5" Haystacks without his giant footwearadvantage. fact
Looked barefoot ~ 6´11" with Akebono who was meaured 6´8 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 7´1" 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 6´11"-6´11.25" evening.
Since I estimate based on Robs idea of claiming eveningheight, I would list him 6´11.25" peak.
I would classify him as a very weak 7footer, but rather a solid/strong 6´11" guy wich fits better if you see him next to solid 7 Footers.

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

_________

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.

Just a note: Adam Scherr has been officially measured @ 6'7-1/2" barefoot before! Fact! Know the man personally ...have worked out with him & The Silverback Crew in The Charlotte-Mooresville, NC area ! Dude is also a legit 365-385 lbs !!! Depending on his training & diet! He was home on a break back around July 4th - 8th...saw him weigh in @ 377 lbs wearing only socks, shorts & tank top! Adam: 6'7.5"

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

Click Here

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, you´re right wit the footwear, but putting Big Shows head at a tad more than 12" it´s a 3.25" gap at best. 6´10.5" Big Show = 6´7.25" Strowman

6´10.5" is pretty fair for Big Show as he looked 6´10"flat next to Shaq with both in dressshoes.


Click Here

Big Show is closer to 6´10"flat than 6´10.5" evening today.
Imo 6´7.25" is a tad or two to high for Strowman, he looks more a weak 6´7"/ 6´6.75 outside the ring Click Here

I agree with the new 6'10.5 listing for Big Show. He sure looks it nowadays. I wouldn't even rule out 6'10 flat today. Look at him with 7'1 Shaq. Big Show was clearly a legit 7'0 in his prime though


Personally I think he looked more 6'11.5 up against Kevin Nash in wcw
Guyster said on 10/Aug/16
Hmmm, another interesting down grade, but i do find this within the correct range for him, he would still wake up near 7 foot in the morning and would dip just below 6"11 at night time.

Let the excuses fly of Shaq having a position advantage - why is Kane still where he should be next to Big Show?!!
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 9/Aug/16
Click Here

Here is Shaq with lose posture posing towards Big Show compared to Shaq standing with more straight back/neck.



Don´t come with excuses that Shaq gains height from position in the ring because Kane is further back than Shaq and comes out to Big Show how he should.
If Shaq has the claimed 1" advantage Kane would have 2" advantage being further back so stop with excuses.

Here’s a better shot, where the feet are aligned and both have good posture.
Click Here
Here the difference is less than 2 inches. Both men have good posture and Big Show’s footwear advantage is nowhere near as large as you make it out to be. Big Show still looks 6’11” there.
And that’s a full body shot, where we can see their posture and where the camera angle isn’t favouring either man. You can’t 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

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

there´re 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





Never read you defending Andre that much... The Andre Wilt - Big Show Shaq comparison must be a shock for you.

But keep on believing in JT´s "altered" Andre pics.

Rob, how can Big Show go from looking 7'1'' in his prime to this listed height?? I'd appreciate if you answer this
miko said on 9/Aug/16
Not sure how Big Show can keep being downgraded and other wrestlers stay the same.

6'7.5 listed Kane and Strowman:

Click Here

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

Click Here

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.

Khali is obvious taller than Shaq in the pic that you post.



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"
Shaq 2,15m doubt he lost height...
Aza said on 8/Aug/16
At his most erect first thing in the morning I can believe 7' peak.
Chaz said on 8/Aug/16
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

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

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

The scale doesn´t 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.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 8/Aug/16

And no, I´m not saying Andre is 2" taller than Big Show but for sure Big Show isn´t 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.

Putting Big Show at a realistic 7ft flat in wrestlingboots shows his boots give easy 1.8".
Shaq comes out at 7´2.5" in 1.3"-1.4", even if Shaqs footwear gives him more, it doesn´t change anything for Big Show.
****If Shaq is really 7ft flat, he would be ~7´1.5" in this footwear,wich means Big Show would be 6´11" in 1.8" footwear/ 6´9.2" 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 doesn´t 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 Show’s footwear advantage is nowhere near as large as you make it out to be. Big Show still looks 6’11” there.

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 you’re 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 that´s not claiming, like you claim....



You recently claimed you thought both of them were ~6’11” 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 wasn´t 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.

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.

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.

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 7´1" 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.

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 6´6.5" Rodman had inches on him in wcw...

Big Show/Giant’s heels look really big but if they are giving a 2” boost, Andre’s either well under 5’0” tall or his cowboy boots gave him more than 3 inches Click Here A 2” boost from a wrestling boot is enormous. Big Show’s WCW boots probably gave him close to a 1.5” boost and Haystacks’ around 0.75”, or up to a 0.75” difference.

Dicksock, it’s been many years since I saw that information on a website about Andre being estimated at 6’9”. I don’t 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 Gene’s head look large.

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 6´5" flat may be a little to low for Chuck, so not real measurements.
It sounds like they had problems with Andres 7´4" 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 (6´5"ers Hogan and Tiny Lister were around 300lbs at their heavyest), Andre was easy around 400lbs back then, give or take a bit.

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 I´m 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 7´1" 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 6´11"-6´11.5" 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 6´10" during the early nineties, so how can the 6´9" peak storys be true?!!

@HeightcrazyRed6ft, if Big Show was only 6 ft 11 peak than guys like Kevin Nash need a downgrade
Boss said on 1/Aug/16
Jt has downgraded every person on this site. All just to fit his Andre story which Noone here is buying. Red's or Captain's comparisons are much more accurate as JT alters all his comparisons to fit his argument. He met Big Show years ago and definitely wants to believe he was bigger than Andre. Big Show himself says he was an inch or 2 shorter than Andre.

How did Gene gain an inch on this page from when he is on the Andre page?

5'9" in shoes....He's not barefoot in the ring, right?
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 29/Jul/16
Click Here

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 6´6.75"-6´7"max in his thin soled boots. He looked just a tad or two taller than John Tenta.

So peak Big Show was 7´0.25- 7´1" in nearly Kane 1997 heeled boots. His boots gave around 1.75"-2" so he was a 6´11"guy peak.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 28/Jul/16

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

peak Andre and Big Show would be both solid 6´11" evening, WM 5 Andre was shrunken to ~6´10.25"-6´10.5"

Big Shows head may be up to Andres in length but not in overall headsize

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


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

6´11" or a tad more is Big Shows peakheight, today he looks 6´10.5"max and solid 2"-2.5" shorter than 7´0.5"-7´0.75" Shaq.
If Big Show wears his Big Boots he can give the Illusion of being only 1.5" shorter than Shaq.
dicksock said on 23/Jul/16
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.
Strong 5ft9 said on 22/Jul/16
@CaptainBeastxxx As far as i can tell, Mountain may not be as tall as The Big Show. But he is 400 lbs of muscle, and Big Show is 450 lbs of fat with probably a bit of muscle in him. Which makes him faster than an average guy who is his weight, believe it or not. But he's not so athletic now as he used to be. Mountain could probably win against Big Show today, but beating The Big Show's past incarnation is currently unknown (when he was 7 feet tall and 500 lbs)
Joe said on 22/Jul/16
@CaptainBeastxxx

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

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

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

___________

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

Haystacks was already diagnosed with cancer there and was passing a giant torch to Paul, they did everything to make Big Show as tall as he could look.

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

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

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.

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

______________

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

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

I think he was 7'1 back then, and that's what he was billed in his basketball days.
Back then ---> Nash billed 7' --> 6'10'', Show billed up to 7'3 --> 7'1
I'm pretty sure he would still measure very close to 7' in the morning and standing tall ( which he never does ).

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

Rob, Big Show vs Kevin Garnett stare down who's your money on??
Editor Rob: physically you might find Garnett would look taller if standing beside show, but when measuring it may in fact be closer than you think.

I don't remember the name of the guy but he is a dutch bodybuilder that claimed 7ft 2 and also was listed as 2,17.He is taller than Show for sure and probably has a footwear disadvantage as Show is probably in a ring suit with his big boots.

Big Show peak was 7'1'' back in the day.

Here is a rare pic with him and Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince (6'4'') in the 90s...

6´11" peak and solid 6´10"-6´10.5" today, anything more seems to be big soled boots.

Rob, do you think Michael Kingma gives Giant impression like Big Show??
Editor Rob: he's not as tall as Big Show, but he certainly has a very big impression in person and has a genuinely big head as well.
Lars said on 14/Jun/16
Posted a while ago but maybe some want to revisit. Big Show with basketball legend Mychal Thompson. NBA listed his height at 6'10'', but he has been saying he's 6'9'' the last couple years.

Crazy for a man in his 40s to have lost 2 cm already. He might have dropped down to 6'7" when hes in his 70 s



NO WAY, Maybe 6'10'' and some change, but not 6'7''. There's plenty of my family members who are well over 70 and they still happen to hold their posture good.

The way strowman has his chest out and leaning forward seems a good sign that he's on tip toes, and the grin kinda looks like he's trying to be as tall as big show!

Strowman wouldn't stand on his tip toes.... Lol geez. He really is a huge guy. A prime Kane and prime strowman, think Kane would be taller!

@EditorRob do you believe Big Show would measure 7'1'' out of bed??
Editor Rob: certainly at peak, it depends on how much he really has lost by today, whether he is a real 6ft 11 flat...then maybe he might not be that range out of bed.
John K. said on 30/May/16
I've seen Big Show at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR. I believe he is 7' tall. I also met Dutch Savage several times, and having seen him in pictures with Andre The Giant, I know Andre was at least 7' 4" before his acromegaly(or however it's spelled) changed him.

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

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

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




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

Hogan was 6ft6 peak (w/h an out of bed height of 6ft7 which is what he always claimed)

Well, eventually we all knew Big Show wouldn't be 7ft tall for the rest of his life.:/
@Rob
You did the right thing.

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

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

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



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

Looking at the photo evidence over the years, I feel that Big Show was mildly taller as well.

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

No at least 6'11' bareffot' he didn't look far off Shaq's height with similar footwear. The most you could argue is 2 inches, but no more

Chris, Big Show is every bit of 6'11'' with you at this moment. WCW Big Show was nearly 7'2'' Click Here factoring footwear and hair.
I believe Big Show was a 7'0.5'', maybe a weak 7'1'' er but nowadays he looks shorter.

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

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

Rob is 6'11.75 at peak not ruled out? It's mentioned that there was only 2 inches between big show and Kevin Nash in there past matches.
Editor Rob: we shouldn't rule out the possibility someone could be above or even below a figure. Sometimes there is a consensus on pages which seems to be a figure is ok, while on others maybe the overall opinion might be the person is slightly below/above what the listing is.
