@Ali Baba

What do you think, could he be the height is is listed..216cm?
I personally think he is..he has to be +3.5 inches above me surely..I woud say he is minimum 215
Sean said on 22/Apr/16
7'0.5"-7'1" is khali's height. Looked same height as Shaq. His staredowns with Big show looked very similar to big shows staredowns with Shaq. Similar meaning both Khali and Shaq had 1.5-2 inch advantage over Show

FYI...it was once reported in Muscle Mag International (bodybuilding magazine) who once had an article on Dahlip Sing being the tallest "competitive" body builder ever ...he was still living & competing in India. They had him listed @ 390 lbs & said he meaured barefoot @ 6'11-7/8" barefoot. This was in the early 1990's...
Ali Baba said on 17/Apr/16
I've seen the man in person. From 15 feet away it was easy to tell he's a true 7 footer. Anyone who says 6'9" has to be trolling.
James B said on 12/Apr/16
in his wwe debut undertaker was trying to stand at his tallest next to khali which is why he might have looked 7ft in comparison.
Aza said on 10/Apr/16
Khali is and always will be taller than Big Show. Stop being a " bumder" mrtguy.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 9/Apr/16
Didnt look a full 71 in his wwe debut, solid/strong 7Footer for sure.
Today hes barely 7 foot, 611.5" not impossible.
Simeun_206cm said on 9/Apr/16
6'9?
I don't think I am as tall as Great Khali..haha...
The guy is easily 216 cm...pure giant

Khali is 7'1(peak 7'6)


Are you that serious Khali's peak height was 7'1'', nowadays looks closer to 7'0''.

Aza said on 1/Feb/16
Big Show puts on the munster boots with face offs with Shaq and Khali because he's a giant right?

Big Show didn't wear monster boots you idiot, he wore regular boots. Big Show is minimum 6'11'' and likely to be 7'0'' with shoes he looked no shorter next to Khali who I think had an inch best on Big Show.

He is around 214 - 216cm....6'9 comments are non sense..
Ice said on 6/Feb/16
ROB would you say Giant Silva would edge out The Great Khali ? When Silva was fighting MMA in Japan he was listed at 230 cm , other times as 7'2. He always struck me as a legit 218 cm .
Editor Rob: not looked as much at big Silva

Besides, in that single solitary shot with Khali and Shaq, Khali was 0.5 inches taller.
Johno said on 29/Jan/16
Khali stands taller with Big Show then Shaq does. Shaq is not more an inch taller then Show but Khali is usually between 1-1.5 inches taller.
James B said on 20/Jan/16
I think 7ft is closer to the truth for khali

Dalip Singh is huge! Definately 7'1 + in his prime. These days still clears 7' evening height. Was noticably taller than Big Show in the past and most probably still is noticably taller than Big Show today.
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 14/Jan/16
This guy claimed 7ft 3 in Johnny Knoxville's show.He said 7ft on big boss sets.But I think 7ft 1 is accurate as one of this housemates from big boss season 4 said that they measured him as 7ft 1.
Paul said on 14/Jan/16
Hope one day Khali and Shaq would take a picture together, to see which one is taller.

Rob how tall do you think giant gonzales was? 7ft 1? He looked 6 inches taller than the undertaker in the 1991 Wrestlemania IX match, do you think undertaker is nearer to 6ft 7 flat than 6ft 7.5?

lol 6'' taller He comes up to he's chin, are you saying he only had a 6'' face? he was a head taller he was at least 11'' taller.he was 230cm and later grow to 231.8cm
mrtguy said on 17/Dec/15
There's always been an inch between Show and Khali no more, I'm being honest they could be the same height now?
Icehole73 said on 10/Dec/15
Oh, I forgot. When people want to criticize the big men or giants wrestling abilities, just compare an Andre/Studd (or Andre/Ernie Ladd) match to Kane/Khali Wrestlemainia 23 match. Technically it is a very clean match between these two and you can see how the current wrestlers have evolved since the mid to late 80's. They are not going to move like a 230 pounder. Being a pro wrestler, it is difficult to communicate in the ring when you can speak english so Khali really does a decent job with a communication barrier. Since it is a business and he helped make WWE popular in India, guess what? That makes him a good WWE Superstar no matter how you cut it. Money, money, money.........
Icehole73 said on 9/Dec/15
Listen to the Khali/jerrico podcast. says 7'2"ali podcast. You will definitely gain some respect for the guy. actually know english well, just hard to understand like andre.
LoganNoll1996 said on 3/Dec/15
Gonzales was officially measured by guinness book of world records as 7'6.5" though I could see 7'6.75" being possible. Undertaker was 6'7.75" I believe and his head was just below Gonzales's if I recall. In staredown pics with Khali, Taker - who was a flat 6'7" by then - came up to about Khali's eye level.

Khali actually said 7'2'' and 425 pounds on Chris Jericho's podcast (speaking decent English).
Del alessi said on 21/Jun/15
Khali is 7'6 easily, look at his proportions and comparison to others anywhere, a head taller than Bob Sapp!
mrtguy said on 19/May/15
Rob, what would guess Khali's weight if Big Show is 450 lbs Click Here I can take into account that Big Show does probably weigh 80+ more lbs than Shaq but not Khali. I'm guessing Khali must weigh in the 380-400 lbs range.
[Editor Rob: khali could be 400 range yes.]
Arch Stanton said on 13/Apr/15
Rob can you add a photo? Also no mention of him being a wrestler! Should be reworded as Indian professional wrestler, bodybuilder and actor from Longest Yard.

Great Khali lost a lot of weight after the surgery. Back in 2006 he looked 385-400 lbs, now barely 350.

For Me Khali Is A Solid 70 (213 cm ),No Shorter No Taller Than That
teej said on 14/Mar/15
He's a giant of a man, 7'1. I thought i pretty damn tall for an indian being 187cm. Khali is from Punjab. . Punjabi indians tend to be tall. My punjabi friends are all relitivley tall. Ive visited pubjab there twice they are very tall in comparison with the rest of india, most people there i would say were around the 5'11 mark, considering average height in india is 5'7, some even say 5'5, but i dont think its that low. I saw a many many strong 6 footers (6'3+) and a few khali like giants (not as tall as khali mind you!)

I would say Khali is slightly taller than Silva. Most photo and video evidence would give him about a .5". Silva wears thick boots not to mention there is a photo floating around that proves it. i have no problem give both him and Shaq 7'1".

I certainly don't believe he has a full 2 inches on Big Show today put it that way. When they were recently tagging they looked closer in height than they had ever been.
James B said on 27/Sep/14
After years of injuries probably closer to 7ft today

7'4 than 7'2" now. wwe said this.
Guy B said on 10/Sep/14
He's a tall one. I'd put him around 7'0"-7'1"
JT said on 10/Sep/14
Khali's legs are probably atrophied from the inability to exercise them due to bad knees but the high camera angle likely distorts the lack of size even more. Sort of like this high angle pic of big show where his legs look abnormally short and small Click Here

Khali in his younger days. Click Here The low camera angle makes the legs look even larger but still quite a difference compared to today.
Clay said on 8/Sep/14
Well, the only way he could only weigh 350 lbs with that kind of height, upper body and bone size is to have thin lower legs and relatively skinny quads. No wonder he looks like Frankenstein walking around.
RoelC said on 6/Sep/14
Vegas says on 4/Sep/14
off topic but his legs...

I knew his legs were slim, but I didn't know they would be that skinny.
It looks like he has some form of muscle atrophy, cause even if he didn't do any work-out on the legs anymore, I doubt they would become that skinny.

James B said on 2/Sep/14
Rob do you think 7'0.5 is impossible for Khali?
[Editor Rob: with any guy that size, he may shrink near 1.5-2 inches, so it's not impossible he could measure under 7ft 1 at times.]

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 said 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.

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:

Most likely he is actually 7'1

James I dont see how anyone could watch Khali on TV and think to themselves ''that guy is under 7 feet!''.
person said 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 said 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 said on 11/Apr/14
Khali clearly was 7'1'' in his late 20's-30's at least.
62B said 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.

Just to look at him on TV he looks 6'11. Does not give off a much bigger impression than Kevin Nash

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.

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 said 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.

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.

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 said 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

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

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.

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 said 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.

A shade under 7'1" and 365 pounds does look very accurate Clay but when its somebody this gigantic its hard to be precise.
Clay said on 3/Dec/11
Vegas Dave Meltzer has said too many outlandish things to take him seriously, but I think he said Khali was measured at just under 7'1'' and 365 lbs back in 2000 - doesnt seem far off.

I believe that Khali is 7'1" now, but that is because of 2 knee surgeries.
He must have been pushin' 7'3" peak but at least 7'2".
___________

right 7'3 when he was listed 7'1 in bodybuilding in the early-to mid 1990s *shakes head* the guy that runs all pro-wrestling in california where khali first trained even told meltzer he measured under 7'1 and 370lb when they put him up on a scale the first day

Khali was listed @ 7'7" 441lbs and Giant Silva was listed @ 7'7" 507 lbs when they were in Japan. Click Here
I believe that Khali is 7'1" now, but that is because of 2 knee surgeries.
He must have been pushin' 7'3" peak but at least 7'2".
Also, Khali wears really thin soled flip flops most of the time. In that photo with Shaq, Shaq's wearing shoes that have over 2.5" soles. Major Wingate and Spence Hayes wore the same shoes as Shaq in smaller sizes and they both gained 2.25" in height with shoes compared to bare feet. Now Shaq's shoes are even thicker since he had the longest shoes in the NBA so them make them even thicker or else they'd look silly. Shaq gains roughly 2.75" in height from his sneakers.
Look at Major Wingate and Spencer Hayes' with shows/barefeet stats here.

What do you guys think? 6 inches or 5 inches? There looks like 8 inches between Kane and Christian. Don't forget that Kane might be wearing his thicker boots. If WWE wants to keep Khali at 7'1" billing, then they'd have to change Kane down to 6'7" instead of the 6'10-7'0" listing they've had him at for 14 years.

Rikashiku said on 27/Oct/11
I've seen Punjabi men and I agree, they are pretty tall. I've seen a lot of guys in my school in New Zealand a few years back, a whole family of them and not one of the boys were under 5'10".

Still, the average height in India overall, in a population that is close to 1 billion, the average height is 5'7", well atleast thats what I've heard. A few people over 5'11" doesn't mean there is a larger population of them, but a minority. Even in the USA, people over 6'2" is just a minority.


Yeah, Khali is listed at 7'1" now and Kane still at 7'0".....which is funny considering that there is nearly 5 inches between them.

@Clay, Have you got those pictures or videos of the two together?

@Linke, in a country where the average man is 5'5", anyone over 6'0" would be considered gigantic. Thankfully for everyone in the world, the overall Avg is 5'7" so 6'0" will be considered giant for a lot of people in the world.



Rika,no 6 is not gigantic in india.I'm between 5'10 and 5'11 and its pretty common in india.Nutrition has to do a lot and you know thats the biggest problem in villages here.In cities,the average is about 5'7 and in villages 5'4,thats is a really big difference.Plus,there are people of some many races over here and they have their own avearge.Khali's from punjab which has one of the tallest overall avg at just under 5'9 for men.punjabi men are pretty big.
Rikashiku said on 22/Oct/11
Actually I might change my Big Show listing to 211cm and have his peak at 214cm, Kane and UT to 202cm.

210cm for Silva is pretty low. I'd make him 7'1" min but not 6'11". This is the guy who was billed at 7'6" and 7'4" during his wrestling Career.

They even put Sin Cara down at 175lbs and Hunico at 190lbs, but before they were both 195lbs. I wonder what Undertaker will be, his silly 299lbs listing or his real 260lbs weight.

Last week they also gave Ryder 204lbs instead of his 214lbs listing and they lowered Mason Ryan from 313lbs to 290lbs.

Apparently WWE is now using real weights, An order sent out from vince to make it more real and UFCish with legit weights, Heights in both companies are still very laughable.

its the whole reality era thing that punk brought in maybe, last week they introduced christian at 199lb and he is normally billed 227lb, ziggler got 203 while punk got i think 202 both 20+lb down from their normal billings, at the ppv cole said bourne weighed 165lb, don't think it continued this week though
Rikashiku said on 5/Oct/11
I noticed that too Vegas. Perhaps they're starting to take a more accurate approach to the superstars, or they know that they can't keep up their lies with the new age fans.
I wonder what kind of treatment they will give Kane and Undertaker who have been given the 6'10-7'0" treatment.
Vegas said on 27/Sep/11
interesting on raw last night cole described khali as 7'1 and 350lb and later on in the night khali was introduced by ring announcer justin roberts as weighing 347lb....i guess he lost 75lb in one week :D

My bad Rika I shoulda clarified, I didn't see a pic of them together I was comparing how they both looked next to Michael PapaJohn.

6'5 is definitely 'giant' in india especially in rural areas where the average is 5'4.

Even with a 6'5" grandfather though with is extremely tall in India 7'1" is very excessive.

I could imagine that a well fed Khali could be 380-400 but definitely NOT over 400. And I doubt if he went hungry for a few days he would lose much weight..

shaun,he said his grandfather was 6'5 on some indian show although w ikipedia and some other sites claim that his grandfather was 6'6 or 6'8.He did claim 190 kgs and i'm not at all into weights,so I cant argue on that but I guess they did measure his weight on big boss and it was under 400 lbs.But,he was kept starving on that show.

Dalip looks to have the edge although barely a cm in it. They look roughly the same height. Shaq is a legit 7'1" so he's at least a flat 7'1".

355 pounds would be about right, what's that a little over 25 stone? Yeah that's about right. Nowhere near 400 though, 420 is ridiculous.

his wrestling boots don't look like they give more than an inch unless he has extra help, most i could buy his boots on their own giving him is 1.25 inches, i notice wwe announcers are describing him as 7ft rather than 7ft something these days, if khalis are giving 2 inches then what are visceras current footwear giving him, the soles look twice as big

180 kgs not 130

That show was aired during the time he won world heavyweight title bt Star news.He also claimed he didnt suffer from gigantism but it was his 6'5 grandfather from whom he got his height.

Talking about khali,how tall is jinder mahal?my guess is 6'3.
® said on 6/Sep/11
Yea,how can i forget that tape thing but who measures one like that.Salman guy claims 5'10 but a friend of mine who saw him thought 5'6.Khali has often claimed 7 feet in india butin the west he tends to claim 7'2.I saw a program about khali few years where he said he was 7'0 130 kgs.His wife said that she was 5'10 herself.One of his brother is 5'7.

in mma silva was listed 230cm roughly 7'7, 15secs Click Here he is listed 7'7 at 1min 10secs in here Click Here in wwf he was listed 7'5

in the 1988 olympics silva was listed 217cm or 7'1.5 roughly so thats as tall as he was
Rikashiku said on 24/Aug/11
@Zahid, I was about to say that this is worst comparison ever, but then i noticed that the guy with them is the same guy in each pic lol!

He makes Silva and Khali look about the same height. Gonzales is clearly the 7'6" he has always been. Damn i remember WWF trying to give Silva the 7'6" height listing. In MMA he was listed at 7'2".


@Vegas, thanks bud. IT said 372 then 355lbs before turning off lol. The quality is bad but its watchable.

Clay said on 18/Aug/11
Supposively on an Indian reality show he weighed just 360 lbs, but on that show they werent feeding him the huge meals he only eats, just as much as the other cast mates. When he is at home eating whatever he wants he is close to 400 lbs probably.
Shaun said on 16/Aug/11
Doesn't look under 25 stone. Somewhere between 25 and 30 stone I think, he is not 450 pounds for sure. Hard to estimate for somebody that big.
Shaun said on 16/Aug/11
7'1" is his legit as evidenced by the IBF. Not 7'3" or 7'4" as often claimed in WWF. I doubt he weighs 450 pounds but you could imagine him weighing around 30 stone which is what 420 pounds?
Mathew said on 13/Aug/11
Singh is about 2 cm shorter than Shaquille O'Neal imo. He has this weird thing he does where he walks around at his absolute tallest all the time, which can make him appear taller than he is.
Kian said on 9/Aug/11
Steve Carell said 7'5 and Anne Hathaway said 7'4 he got measured at 7'1 in a Bigg Boss interview and on WWE when he debuted they said a 7'4 monster then after his debut hes billed 7'3 now on Smackdown they say 7'2 hes 7'1 because Big Show is 7'1 and looks same height.

Kane was always 5,sometimes appeared as much as 6 inches shorter than Khali..

7ft1 is right for Khali Kane is 6ft10.5 in wrestling boots and only looked 2.5 inchs MAX shorter than Khali,Kane has even said himself hes 6ft9 without shoes and socks 6ft9.25 in shoes with flats and 6ft9.75 in heeled shoes 6ft10.5 in wrestling boots and 6ft9 flat out Khali has even been billed as 7ft7 in AJPW when Giant Silva was 7'2 and billed 7'7 was 1 inch taller so he must of been 7ft8 wrong on a site it says Giant Silva is billed 7ft4 to 7ft7 but is really 7ft2 and is billed 385-500lbs.

Giant Singh was listed at 7'7" in Japan. I'd trust the opinion of Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway(who've spent weeks if not months with him) a lot more than people who've never met Singh on here who say he's 6'11" LMFAO!
Click Here

Steve Carell said he was 7'5", and Anne Hathaway said he's 7'4".
They might be exaggerating a little to get people to watch the movie, but he's at least 7'2". Shaq wears 2 1/2" thick sneakers so the Shaq Singh photo is useless because you can't see their feet. Look at how much taller Shaq got when he went up against Big Show. Show was taller when both were wearing dress shoes, but Shaq mysteriously got 1 1/2" taller when he wore sneakers.
The Shaq photo proves that Singh is even taller than I thought.

He's been looking more 7'0" from what i've seen with him and other tall athletes. He looked the same height as Shaq once. Funny how Smackdown had him at 7'2", RAw at 7'3" and ECW tried to get 7'4"! this was about 2007 or 2008 when they made these claims, and it was funny.

He's super gigantic but he really does not look 6 inches taller than 6'7 Kane so i think there is a chance the Great Khali is not over the 7ft mark.

angles on that video are awful, he goes from having a full head and about 2 inches to having 6 inches in 1 second, anyway we saw how hogan measured up to khali in 2008 and we know rock and hogan were roughly same height in 2002 so rock would come somewhere between khalis chin and mouth

I wud say Mr singh is around 6ft 11 barefoot. not 7ft. dont get me wrong, he's a very large man but hes abnormally large, u can tell by his facial features that he has had a form of giantism. I remember a clip of dalip singh and kane in the ring and i saw a 4 inch difference, i cud be wrong but that just my opnion. I think the WWE have got to stop exagerrating the wrestlers heights. I remember MVP was said to be billed at 6ft 3, which is a straight up joke. its obvious hes 6ft. Glen jacobs is around 6ft 7. paul wight is around 6ft 9/10 in my opnion. There not as tall as the commentators on wwe make out. A wrestler/commentator called tazz was honest and cud spot wrestlers real heights, the others like michael cole/ striker/lawler are all bull****ters. brodus clay aka george murdock is about 6ft 5 and he says am 6ft 8. what a dickhead. The Public dont realize the size of guys like drew mcityre and wade barrett. They are the feunine big guys of the wwe.

Rika; lex luger is not in that photo, the guy that looks a bit like luger there is mike sanders, i never met o'haire but i did meet jindrak and he looked ~6'5 to me in 2004, interesting in that photo o'haire looks inches taller, however in the ring i always thought jindrak edged out o'haire so he was probably 6'4 range

sims was listed 6'8 against bobby lashley so thats as tall as the guy is, he looked what 5 inches at most taller than lashley in that staredown so i suspect the 6'8 listing is generous too

Singh I believe is like 7 ft 2 or 3 he's really big nobody doubting that he's def a lil over 7 ft when he first entered the wwe thye said 7 ft 4 he;s def well over 400 pounds hes got tons of muscle Steve Carel in Get Smart said Singh was 7 ft 5 and 456 pounds the weight idk about but he's def about 7 ft 2 or 3

khalis heaviest weight was during his bb days when he weighed 380lb, he has always been about 360lb in wwe, when they weighed him for that match with hornswoggle 2 years ago nearly sure the scale said 360 something before switching off

Id disagree with that. He was visibly thicker and larger in 2006, gradually lost mass as the years went on.

I believe Khali at just 160-165 kilo's (just...lol), he has lost some mass since his debut 4 years ago...where he was a monsterous legit 400 pounds.
Rikashiku said on 17/Nov/10
The physical camera was 4 inches away from the wrestlers....right.

Rob maybe you should add him on celebweights.
Clay said on 17/Nov/10
Khali is 190 Kilo's or 160, which one? 80 kilo's is 180 pounds so Khali is 370ish pounds? Freakishly huge and muscular upper body anyway you want to sice it.
linke said on 16/Nov/10
They measured khali's weight this week and his weight is actually just over 160 kgs.I'll post the video.Rob maybe you should add this guy on celebweights.He is built at 190 kgs.And claimed to be 180 kgs.

No Adam Bomb is taller! I dont know about your friends. The camera was set only 4 inches away from their face as both were quarelling nose to nose and there it was clear that Bomb was taller. In that clip there was Rick Mortel (the model) too who was commenting on their size. I dont know by what to search each video telecasted by Star Sports in India on Monday Night Raw shown on a Friday on TV. This was atleast 15 years back.

khali is 7 feet 1 and could bench press raw more than 440 pounds, front press 265 pounds for 8 repetitions , 660 pounds raw squat, 265 pounds barbell curls and chin ups with his 375 pounds body weight, and could throw shotput for 17 meters.

I am going to go back to an archived post in the summer. I hope that some of you understand leverages. Khali's are as long as a gorilla's (I'm joking obviously), but his arms are exceptionally long arms, so his ability to bench and overhead press sucks. But a 440lb bench and 265lb overhead press for 8-10 reps is VERY impressive considering the angle of pull/push this man has to face. I if his arms were 2-3 inches shorter, he would be benching in the mid 5's with EASE. It's all bio-mechanics and physics. His ability to throw a shot 17 meters (roughly 56-57ft), and I'm sure if he worked more on that, he could easily throw 70ft and would be because...again...from his LEVERAGES. Khali has a deadlifter build, because his arms are so long and his torso being average is guess (its really not that long fellas), he is built to pull extreme weights. He is an easy 800lb deadlifter. When it comes to lifting and throwing and all that fun stuff it all has to do with leverages.

So for a souce, you're using a video that is no longer online. Most others i have seen and i have been a longtime fan of wwf has Crush being taller than Adam bomb.

Have you taken shoes into consideration? and how about camera angle?


Mcmahon tends to over exaggerate alot. Most people who had seen Hogan saw him being 6'5" or 6'6" and def not 6'8".
Do you have a source for this?
swarupb said on 10/Nov/10
No Crush is shorter than Adam Bomb because on TV Crush had to look up to Adam Bomb and the camera was very close focussing their eyes. Unfortunately I do not have evidence by way of video at the moment to support this. This was shown on WWF Monday Night Raw.

For Hulk Hogan, in the year 1994 when MachoMan came to India and met DaraSingh, he said that he reminded him of Hulk Hogan because both have same height and built in the 'Indian Express' Newspaper. Now how tall is Dara Singh, I know that hes 6.2.
Rikashiku said on 7/Nov/10
Ummm swarupb, I listed Nash at 6'9" now and 6'10" prime and Show at 7'0" now and 7'1" Prime. Thats 3 inches.
In wcw, the Giant was almost the same height as 7'2" Ron Reis who was billed at 7'8".
Im looking at old videos again and Nash looks atleast 3 inches shorter than Big Show and a head taller than Shawn Michaels who looks about 5'11".

Hulk Hogan in 2003 was atleast an inch taller than 6'3" Rock or even half an inch taller. You kinda just babbled there so i have no idea what you're talking about. I haven't mentioned Brock Lesnar. Hogan is half an inch shorter than David Hasselhoff.
As people age, especially people over 6'2", they do lose height.


Crush is taller than Adam Bomb and both have been listed at 6'6", crush alittle taller.
Dude, everyone has confrontations and someone looks taller than the other at different times.
Like the Hurricane being 6'0" and somehow 5'10" Teddy Long and 6'0" Matt Hardy were like 3 inches taller than him.

Same for Mr Mcmahon, in 2006 Summerslam, Mcmahon was taller than 6'3" Jonathan Coachman.
Edge, in 2006-2007 as Rated RKO, he appeared taller than 6'4" Randy Orton. In the Ring, Orton was taller than Edge.
Sal said on 3/Nov/10
Rikashiku, I disagree with some of your listed heights, but at least you're a reasonable person. The person I disagree most about was Giant Gonzalez as he was once measured at 7'7 1/4" in 2000 and like 7'6.9" once for his national team or something.
Rikashiku said on 2/Nov/10
Giant Gonzales - 7'6" was billed at 8'0"
Silo Sam - billed at 7'7", I'd think 7'4" or 7'5" he is a tall dude.
Khali - 7'0" atleast, could be taller. Cant see him being shorter.
Big Show - 6'11 now. Possibly 7'1" prime. He stated so himself he was 7'1" before WrestleMania 21.
Giant Silva - 7'2" was once billed at 7'6" in WWF.
Kevin Nash - 6'9" now, 6'10" or more Prime. Billed at 7'2" by Hogan.
Kane - 6'8" or so. Possibly 6'9" one time as the Masked Kane. I met him once, he was so much taller than me, but my head was still over his shoulders. I was 6'0" at the time.
Undertaker - 6'7.5" was once 6'8" as Mean Mark Callous. billed at 6'10" and once at 6'8" during a match against also underbilled 6'0" Kurt Angle.
Andre the Giant - 7'0-7'1" possibly. Billed at 7'4" and 7'5". Told to stand on Boxes to make him appear taller. At 18 he was 6'10" but by 22 he was 7'0".
Giant Haystacks - 6'10" billed at 6'11" which is possible for being is legit height.
Scott Hall - 6'5" billed at 6'6" and 6'7". I see him being 6'5".
Hulk Hogan - 6'3" today possibly 6'5" or 6'6" in the past. He had suffered several injuries which are known to make wrestlers suddenly appear shorter.
Sid Justice - 6'7" was billed at 6'7" and 6'10". Was half an inch shorter than Undertaker.
Lex Luger - 6'3" billed at 6'5". His football history has him at 6'3" and he can look it. He was almost an inch shorter than legit 6'6" Sean o'Haire in a picture but Lex was wearing thicker boots than O'haire who wore leather shoes.
Yokozuna - 6'3" billed at 6'7" and 600lbs. Was infact lighter.
Sting - 6'1" billed at 6'2". He could be shorter as 5'11" to 6'0" Christian Cage was almost as tall as Sting.
Machoman - 5'11" billed at 6'2", claimed himself to be 6'1". doesnt look THAT tall.
Crush - 6'5"-6'6" billed at 6'7" and 6'8"
Adam Bomb - 6'4"-6'5" billed at 6'6"
Sal said on 30/Oct/10
I'm so tired of liars on here acting like Shaq has 1" thick sneakers.
Shaq is AT LEAST 7'1" barefoot, and his sneakers are over 2 1/4" thick.
Shaq is 7'3 1/4" BARE MINIMUM in his ELEVATOR SNEAKERS.
That kind of shows you how tall Khali is in his flip flops or whatever he's wearing in that alleged photo.
Here's PROOF that many taller basketball players have 2" and 2 1/4" thick sneakers. Shaq has bigger feet than all of them, so his sneakers are even thicker.
Look at these links and look at the heights of these NBA players with and without sneakers.

Now its my turn to give some estimations:
The Great Khali 7'0
Big Show 6'9.75
The Undertaker 6'6
Kane 6'6.25
The Rock 6'2.25
Steve Austin 6'2
Triple H 6'1.5

Ginat Silva is no 6'11 mask , he was clearly taller than Schilt in Pride OWGP in 2004 .
And Schilt who believed he was 6'11"1/2 (212cm) has been recenttly measured on a show on the japanese TV @ 7'0"1/2 while standing tall so do your math .
7'2 is accurate for Silva .
Vegas said on 14/Oct/07
kane is one inch shorter than big show?? not even wearing his mega boots he wasn't :)

in 2006 the 4" height difference between the two was obvious Click Here and Click Here
Xardas said on 14/Oct/07
Now its my turn to give some estimations:
The Great Khali 7'1 at least (His Myspace claimed 7'3)
Big Show 6'11

Kane 6'10
The Rock 6'4
Steve Austin 6'2
Triple H 6'2

dalip singh is more than 6,11,he,s at least 7'1" to 7,2",he had more than 7 inches on batista.
mask said on 6/Oct/07
I would also try to give my estimations of some tallest wrestlers' heights.
In my humble opinion I think that:
ANDRE THE GIANT 6'11" peak 6'9" later
BIG SHOW 7'0" peak 6'10.5" now
GIANT GONZALEZ 7'7"
GIANT SILVA 6'11"
GIANT SINGH 6'11.5"
MAX PALMER 7'7"

I worked as a talent agent and have a photo with me standing next to Ron Reis as I was booking him for a film.. He's 7'2"..legit..
nick said on 1/Oct/07
Shock, i give you a lot of credit, EVERYONE PLEASE LISTEN. Shock you stated that the rock has a head similiar to the undertakers (large forhead), Well what a coinsedence, go on google.com and punch in Brock vs. Rock summerslam. When you initially see the picture you assume brock is taller because of his eye level mouth jaw etc. But when youy click you see that the rock is infact not only the same height but exactly one inch taller 6'3(rock to 6'2(brock. BROCK LESNAR has the exact same kind of head as syco sid. Syco sid looked taller than the undertaker bvcause of a short head, but when in fact when you put a line across the screen and ehat you see is an inch difference with undertaker being taller. Sid is a legit 6'7 6'7.5 which would put taker to 6'8, there is too much evidence. There is even a picture of khali and taker staring down on google.com images, and there is not a 7 inch difference not a 6 inch difference but a 5 inch difference. There is a video of the rock and the undertaker talking where in the begining when he stands straight up which we rarley** see he is atleast 5 inches taller. Then proceeds to look down and slouch making him apear* shorter
dave said on 1/Oct/07
The undertaker is at least his listed 6'7.5 people who think he's 6'6'' need to give their head a shake.
Shock said on 1/Oct/07
I have met several guys whom I have seen underbilled here, and I think sometimes you guys seem to forget when you list guys as whether or not they are in bigger boots or not and confuse the references. Many times I see Cena listed as 6'2" in his "basketball shoes" but in reality sneakers don't give you any more height than regular shoes, in fact the soles on regular shoes and wrestling boots technically depress less than the rubber on sneakers. Whatever the case may be, Cena is 6'2" in his snearkers no matter what and doesn't matter what his real height is because that's what you have to go by. Now, taking this into account, Khali is at least a foot taller than the 6'2" version of Cena, at least. I am putting Khali at 7'1" and change and Show at 7'1" when they wake up in the morning. More often than not their height differential is indistinguishable and I believe any discrepencies are purely posture related. Any time you see Taker do a stare down with Khali or Big Show, Taker stands up straight, but with people shorder than him, Taker does not stand up so straight and generally even looks down with his head tilted. Another factor is that Taker's forehead is also bigger than any wrestler I've ever seen, with his only competition being the Rock, making him taller than some guys who have eye sockets above his, like Sid (by 1"), or Kane (by .5" tops). When Taker wrestles Khali, he looks massively shorter because of the posture he takes, probably more intentional for show than convenience. Khali is 4.5-5" taller than Taker in a legit staredown, putting Taker closer to 6'9" than 6'8" and only under 6'9" due to minor height loss from age. The 6'7" estimate for Taker are impossible based on many cross references.

dave, most people do believe Wight has lost a little bit of height over the years as he doesn't seem to be quite as taller as he was back in the days of WCW.

JT said on 8/Sep/07
LV, this is about as good as it gets from a low resolution YouTube video Click Here Nevertheless you still can see the edge of the foot of both Big Show and Singh pressing against the outside of the boot just above the sole, proving that there are no lifts inside. The actual heels of each look to be at the same approximate level.

Heres Singh and ~ 67 Gary Godsey Click Here Singh is closer to the camera though. He looks about 7 inches taller as it is and would probably lose 1-2 inches by taking a step back.
LV said on 7/Sep/07
JT, do you have a better picture of Show & Singh's footwear from their meeting? Big Show's boots look thicker than normal. A good way to prove that Singh is taller would be to compare a picture Show/Rodman with a picture of Singh/Godsey from The Longest Yard (even though I think Godsey would slightly edge out Rodman). Anyone have those pictures?
dave said on 6/Sep/07
Has big show lost height over the yearsdue to surgery or anything like that? I stand by my claim that Khali is at least 1.5 inches taller than Wight barefoot.
Gollum said on 5/Sep/07
Thank you, JT.
Gollum said on 5/Sep/07
I now agree with people on here. In his prime Big Show was the height of Khali maybe a half inch shorter.
JT said on 4/Sep/07
Here you go Gollum (Click Here) Piper still looks in the 60 range at this point next to 58 Gene. Heres another one of the two (Click Here). You also wanted to compare Big Show with Singh (Click Here) I still think Singh would edge Big Show out in height now but it would be close. I'm not sure about a mid-1990s Big Show though.
Gollum said on 4/Sep/07
JT if you could pause at a great place for Piper and Show so we can estimate him ana Khali.

answer toa nonymous said on 25/Aug/07
Whether he is 7ft 1 to 7ft 3, he's huge either way. And no he does not have giantism. His father was also 7ft so its genetics meaning he won't continue to get larger and die young like andre the giant. And he's an inspector in india. Wouldn't want him after me!
Akirum byn Anaq said on 24/Aug/07
WWE lists Khali in his shoes, at 7-3. He's about 7-1 barefoot. Similar to the NBA listing someone like Arvidas Sabonis, at 7-3, but his barefoot height is like 7-1 1/2.
dave said on 22/Aug/07
Khali looks all of 7'2'' in the picture of him and Davari on the red carpet. Friggin monster.
