How tall is Dalip Singh ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Dalip Singh's height is 7ft 1in (216 cm)

Indian bodybuilder, actor was in Longest Yard. Has he supposed to have said he is 7ft 2? Maybe he's getting in the spirit of America...adding an inch, not as if anybody's gonna notice? Or has he gained another inch in height last 5 years?

On This Indian bodybuilding federation page he was described 7ft 1.

Clay do you agree Scott hall looked 6'4 next to hogan?

Sure. Not positive about him but I could believe he was 6'5'' in his prime back in the day.

Watched that Hogan birthday party segment from Raw on youtube because you had me curious about Nash next to Khali - that was a dreadful angle to try and get a feel for the gap between those two. None the less Khali looked a good 3-4 inches taller when Nash walked past I would say.
Hey I know that guy says on 23/Aug/14
Lol has it right, heights above 6'9 can start looking real distorted to ppl of average height...Dalip may have hit 7 foot+ at some point but really he's now probably 6'11. A huge 6'11 I would add...body mass and shoulder height play a big part in how "huge" a person appears.

Looks no taller than 7ft

Just like Danimal said what someone looks and what someone actually is are two seperate things. measured at 7'1'' and 350 lbs by his doc when he had his tumour removed, same height as a measured 7'1'' Shaq.

phillymike your list looks good. Nick uk do you mean your grandmother worked for wwf? and do you mean andre the giant is 6'10 or are you kidding? I need those 3 inch lifts i'm only 5'2.
Nick UK says on 23/Jul/14
Yeah my gran used to work for wwf too and says Andre was only 5 foot 10?!

phillymike says on 12/Jul/14
Most people on here are pretty close or dead on. Then there are a few that are way off. My uncle worked for the wwf/wwe for 13 years and knows most of these wrestlers. He stated there 3 types of foot wear, meaning boots. The average boot is 1.25", than there's 2 types of lifts: 2.5" and 3" boots. As far as the wrestlers, prime and bear feet:

Alex 6'0 says on 11/Jul/14
A 6'11 Big Show puts Khali at 7'0-7'0.5 and that goes for Shaq too.
sonic says on 15/Jun/14
Found a segment on the indian big brother where they measured Great Khali at 7'3 with shoes.

Most likely he is actually 7'1

Clay says on 4/May/14
James I dont see how anyone could watch Khali on TV and think to themselves ''that guy is under 7 feet!''.
person says on 25/Apr/14
The Great Khali wrestling as Giant Singh was about 7'2 the same as Giant Silva; about 7'1 in WWE from 2006-2008 and around from around 2008 onwards- 7'0-7'0.5 currently; assuming The Big Show is about 6'11-6'11.5.
Eric says on 18/Apr/14
I saw him in Florida in 08. People saying he's 6'9 are absolutely retarded. He's one of the tallest people I've ever seen and he was much taller than my friends Kyle and Kody who are 6'7 and 6'8. I'd say he's at least 7ft 1/2 inch and I'd put show at 6'11 and nash at 6'9.5
Clay says on 11/Apr/14
Khali clearly was 7'1'' in his late 20's-30's at least.
62B says on 15/Mar/14
Clement, I think you are a bit off on at least a few. I physically bumped into Andre the Giant back in late 87' early 88'. He knocked me to the ground. When I stood up, he stood straight up and gave me that Andre stare. I am 6'3", Andre was 7' tall all day long, That's in dress flats(I had a good look), not cowboy boots.
Red183 says on 12/Mar/14
Seeing that Big Show wasnīt taller than a 6ī11" fan, I canīt buy 7ī1" for Khali during his wwe time.
I say somewhere between 7ī0"-7ī0.5"
James B says on 11/Mar/14
Just to look at him on TV he looks 6'11. Does not give off a much bigger impression than Kevin Nash

ReturnofG says on 10/Mar/14

Not bad.
I think Andre was 6'11
Hogan a solid 6'5 (maybe 6'6)

I met Bomb and would say a very strong 6'6.

I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPINESS THE WRESTLING ORGANIZATION {CHAIRMAN} GET'S,JUST TO SHOW HOW BIG THEIR WRESTLER'S ARE,SUCH A SHAME ON SUCH PEOPLE,,,
thomas says on 18/Nov/13
id say his about 212cm
Lol says on 10/Nov/13
Have you guys never met someone who was 6'10"+? They're HUGE. If Khali is 6'8", that leaves big show at about 6'6", and the likes of Kane and Undertaker at about 6'3". ARE WE ON EARTH?

7'1" for Khali max.
clement says on 30/Oct/13
The Great Khali is 6'8" or 6'9" max
clement says on 4/Oct/13
Dalip Rana Singh {The Great Khali} is 6'9" according to my estimation...
BigjohnUSA98 says on 29/Sep/13
Khali first meets show - Khali at least 1-1.5 inches taller and show clearly has a HEAVY footwear advantage if you look at the soles, if Khali is 6'11 then Show isn't much more than listed Kevin Nash which is complete garbage people!

Harlemhangover56 says on 29/Sep/13
Khali was about 2 inches taller than show in their first two encounters (7'1), looks a bit smaller now, like 1 and a half but he wears smaller shoes due his extreme immobility and needing to be closer to the ground for walking purposes. He's about 7'0.5 nowadays.
clement says on 20/Sep/13
The Great Khali is not more than 7'O''......He is 6'11''.
Yogesh says on 19/Sep/13
First Indian wrestler. I think he is 7'2
Fakhrul Islam says on 6/Sep/13
I think Dalips about 7 ft 1/2 or even 7ft because in the picture of him face to face with big show khali looks 1 inch taller but because he has hair and big show is balled if you take Dalips hair away he could be the same height.
clement says on 29/Aug/13
my guess is 6'11'.
Red183 says on 19/Aug/13
I think heīs just over 7ft today, like 214cm

Dalip - 7'1
Paul - 6'11.5
drummer777 says on 11/Apr/13
Dalip more like 6'11, Big show 6'10, Wilt Chamberlain was 6'11 1/2
Arch Stanton says on 26/Jan/13
Kane on the other hand is listed at a ridiculous 7'0" and 323 lbs.

Rob his official wrestling page seems to list his actual measurements 7 ft 1, 347 pounds. I guessed him a while back at 7 ft 1 and 350-360 pounds. He is actually billed at 7 ft 3 or 4 and 420 pounds though in the ring,

For the hell of it.

Jericho- 5'9"-5'9.5"?

Edge- 6'3.5"

Cena- 6'0.5"

Morrison- 5'10.5"

He does, it was shown on the set of ''The Longest Yard''.

Well he looked shorter next to big show compared too how Shaq did?

Khali realy did have acromegaly? Well theres the shock of the century...
Shaun says on 29/Aug/12
Clay says on 29/Oct/11
Could be 6 inches between Kane and Khali.
Rikashiku says on 28/Oct/11
Yes I've seen the clip Vegas and Khali dwarfs him when they're not wearing munster boots. In the ring in their rivalry, Kane looked 5 inches shorter or more.

Its roughly 5-6 inches between both Khali and Kane and Undertaker. 7'1" looks about right.
Shaun says on 29/Aug/12
He has about 5 inches on Kane and the Undertaker. If they're 6'8" range he's 7'1".

Interesting how some of us on this site knew Khali was clearly suffering from acromegaly/gigantism and a pituitary tumor the first time we saw a pic of him yet he wasn't diagnosed with the disease until only recently via WWE's wellness program. What were his doctors thinking?

I read about his surgery last week and the first reaction I had was "why didn't he get surgery sooner". Then I read they didn't diagnosed him with Acromegaly until just recently. Back in 2006 when he entered the WWE some here (including myself) were saying he suffered from Acromegaly. Considering his facial features (large brow and jaw), the thickness of his hands, but most of all his large size should've alarmed any doctor.
Vegas says on 4/Aug/12
i agree, its incredible to think he has worked for the majority of the last 15 years in both the states and japan and no doctor before now diagnosed him, he should have been diagnosed in india during his bodybuilding days

Keep in mind the article does refer to Andre as being 7'4" but it says that the surgeon is saying Khali is 7'1"

Henry says on 9/Feb/12
I totally agree, Shaq's sneakers actually make him 7'3 3/4" tall. He has to thickest sneakers in NBA history.
________

a number of nba dedicated fan forums have shaqs measured height in sneakers down at 7'2.75 Click Here Click Here

now i don't know how true they are (seems to me a little too much unless that was straight out of bed) but suggesting shaq is getting nearly 3 inches from his sneakers is a ridiculous statement even for you (hulk hogan was 6'8+), brook lopez was measured 7'0.75 in sneakers so his brother robin would be around same height, amare was measured 6'10 in sneakers and shaq is not nearly 6 inches taller than him Click Here
Henry says on 9/Feb/12
I totally agree, Shaq's sneakers actually make him 7'3 3/4" tall. He has to thickest sneakers in NBA history. I HAVE NBA PRE DRAFT MEAUREMENTS TO PROVE IT.
Spencer Hayes and Major Wingate have thick 2 1/2" tall sneakers(look at the barefoot and in snekaers height comparison in the NBA pre draft measurements.
Shaq's sneakers are FAR thicker than either Spencer Hayes or Major Wingate's sneakers.

Shaq wears massive lifts sneakers. That shows you that
Even after the surgeries, khali was at least 7'2" in the photo.
Ben says on 30/Jan/12
Big Show is not 6.8, he was an inch under if not eye to eye with Shaq who was one of the few C/PF was was legit 7'1".

Was Singh actually running in the Longest Yard? because the man can barely walk.
