How tall is Dave Batista

Dave Batista's Height

6ft 2.75in (189.9 cm)

American Professional Wrestler David Bautista is also an Actor known for roles in Riddick and Guardians of the Galaxy. One of his claims was "I'm 6ft 5" and another visitor said they saw him claiming "6ft 3". He is regularly described as standing 6ft 6 by WWE and Other sites.
I stay about 265; that's just my natural body weight that I walk around at. I will probably weigh-in between 262 and 265. Most people who see me that remember me from wrestling, the way they make it sound as if I look anorexic. It's like, "God, you have gotten so small." But I'm 6'4" and 265 pounds. I don't know how people could consider that small, but I guess by wrestling standards it is. - FightHype.com, 2012

6'4 at his peak 6'3 is good now.
tornado said on 14/Aug/17
i would say he is about 6 foot 4
Anon2 said on 14/Aug/17
He is struggling to look 6'2'' today with Shane, who at most is 6'1''. Click Here that's some height loss, going from a peak 6'3''
Rent said on 10/Aug/17
And please guys, don't talk about "peak height" and "current height" for him, he's 48 years old, younger than Craig and Pitt!!... ;-) ^^
Rent said on 10/Aug/17
This listing seems fair. He's not that much taller than 6'0.25" Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049 and Craig is clearly shorter but not dwarfed by him in Spectre.
J lim said on 3/Aug/17
He is obviously somewhere between 6 feet two inches but not over 6 feet three inches, WWE like the NBA have their talents/Athetes listed 1-2 inches more than their actual height. It is stupid to claim that he is 6 feet 6 inches. Probably he wears three inch boots to come up to that freaking height. On one show in the phil, eat bulaga, he was standing close to a local artist named jimmy santos, who is around 6'1 to 6'2 there is not much of a difference in their height , and this is around 2008 or so, way back before his most recent run in the WWE where he obviously shrunk in height and is even smaller than randy orton by 2 inches.
Tak said on 2/Aug/17
Batista has a V-shaped body, with very wide shoulders; this makes him look much taller to the eye's perspective.
6'2 peak 6'1 now MAX
Guanzo said on 1/Aug/17
He is 6'6''
James B said on 31/Jul/17
Doesn't look much taller then Brock lesner really
chris said on 30/Jul/17
I wouldn't be surprised if he was 6'4 in the early 2000s, now he's much shorter. Probably 6'2.

6 foot 6 ! you can't be ****ing siriyos .

Peak: 6'3"
Current: 6'2"
Slim 182 cm said on 19/Jul/17
edmullen, he'd have no reason to wear boots, at that very tall height. If anything, it'd be very uncomfortable to do stunts with 1,75-2 inches of footwear.
miko said on 17/Jul/17
Steiner is 5'11.
Fan said on 17/Jul/17
He looked much taller then a 6'1" Scott Steiner, does big poppa pump have a page?
edmullen said on 16/Jul/17
Unless he wore lifts, which i dont see the point when hes already basically 6'3 ?
edmullen said on 16/Jul/17
im sorry he's atleast gotta be 192cm, Look at him RR 2005 vs 183cm cena, atleast a 9cm gap between them
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
6'3 max. Looked it in guardians of the galaxy.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
Batista is def taller than The Rock
The Ben said on 12/Jul/17
Terrible posture.
Could be 6'3 but could also be under 6'2. On episode 24 of muscle expert podcast he says (without much conviction) that's he's 6'4.
I was ringside in 05 and Batista towered over me, I would have said 6'4-6'5. I can only put it down to serious lifts.
When he returned to WWE he looked like he'd lost 2 inches.

come on guys, even 6'2 is too much for batista today. strong 6'1 at max. really dont understand why rob dont chancge this rate. at least change it to a peak height and a nowdays height, like arnold, hogan pages. the heigh difference between peak and nowdays is CLEARLY more than a inch, it definitely deserves a then/now rate.
even said on 5/Jul/17
hes 190 cm in length and 120 kg in weight
WarlordOfSparta said on 5/Jul/17
Batista is around 6 feet 2 right now or even less looked shorter than shane mcmahon who looked a bit shorter than Brock Lesnar and he looked around the same with triple h nowdays
Fan said on 2/Jul/17
A 6'4'' man would never look like this standing next to a 6'2'' man.

Fan said on 2/Jul/17
I am sure they all wear lifts or shoes that make them taller. That photo with RZA proves it all.
Rick said on 1/Jul/17
He could very well be 6'4, he looks it with Triple H.

187-188 peak 190

He looks 190cm today
randyorton said on 25/Jun/17
actually peak bautista was 6'3.75"
randyorton said on 25/Jun/17
batista:
6'3.25" back in the day 270-275lbs
6'2"-6'1.75" today 260-265lbs
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 19/Jun/17
6'2.75" peak same as The Rock. Dave might be 6'2.5" today but no more.
Juggernaut said on 19/Jun/17
Bautista prime same as The Rock or a bit taller..They say he wore lifts but I've seen his boots and don't think he ever did..perhaps a little bigger sole..nonetheless 6'3'25 before today after all the surgeries,toll and abuse from pro-wrestling He at best 6'2'75 as guessed by Rob but due to his bad posture can look 6'2'...
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
Ben affleck is not 6'4" even in shoes. Batista looks 6'3ish albeit maybe a 6'2.75ish like listed or full at most
miko said on 16/Jun/17
Batista was never anywhere near 6'4. He's always looked a weak 6'3 guy from his early WWE days when he was in his early 30's.

If he's lost any noticeable height I'd be very surprised, in his last WWE run he was looking solid 6'2.5 range.
Dougie Jay said on 15/Jun/17
I would say 6'2.5 by comparing him next to other stars in that height range. He has lost probably two inches from his prime wrestling days and his posture is not the best either. The rigors of wrestling also took a toll on his frame.
Mark said on 9/Jun/17
it's really hard to say because he never stands with proper posture. sometimes he looks taller taller than Chris Pratt and sometimes he looks shorter. same goes for him standing with Shane McMahon. during the Muscle & Fitness event he looked short compared to him but other times he looked taller. what is consistent is when people say he has a massive back, that he has a very wide frame. peak height id put him at 6'3 and change. today i'd say anywhere between 6'2.5 and 6'3. if he stood up as straight as possible id give him a weak 6'3. as for his weight, they always billed him somewhere close to 300lbs. for wrestlers that means you take away 10-15lbs. i read somewhere that since he's been doing a lot of weight lifting recently he's back up to his wrestling weight of 280lbs. idk how believable that is but i'd say he's 270lbs or less. he's got a big chest, back, and legs which is where most of his weight im guessing is. sorry for the super long comment, i just really admire the guy and he's always been very inspiring to me
Mark(5'9.25") said on 5/Jun/17
He was taller than Elizabeth Debicki (who wore an inch heel).

He's not shorter than this and deserves a peak to 6'3"
Mr. Prez said on 30/May/17
He could definitely be 6'4".
Logan said on 29/May/17
Batista is 6,4 maybe 6,5 at his peak he is 1 inch taller than Triple H.
Insecure said on 21/May/17
Idk how you can keep him near 6'3. The dude loves boots and high heeled shoes. He has appeared shorter than Chris Pratt many times. About the same height as RZA. Only 3in, 4in MAX taller than Daniel Craig. Id say 6'1.75" to be fair as his height fluctuates constantly cause of his foot wear
andre said on 19/May/17
this is one of the guys that lost height , he was same height as orton and now is much shorter 191cm prime barefoot 189 barefoot today

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/17
Whether or not he was once near 6ft4 is debatable?


May need to look at his WCW days
James B said on 13/May/17
He was never 6'4 lets just that clear that up because he was shorter than randy orton
Bard said on 10/May/17
I can buy close to 6'4 peak, and close to 6'3 now. Could be overestimating a little, but I doubt it's by much at all.
Bazza said on 8/May/17
@bodybuilder - there is no way imo he was ever close to 6'5.. possibly a weak 6'4 in his absolute prime at best. He has lost an inch or two an is around a strong 6'2 today.
berta said on 8/May/17
i really dont think he is more than 2 cm taller than pratt.
Adijos said on 5/May/17
Rob, is there any chance that Dave's highest peak was 6'3" or 6'3¼"?
bodybuilder said on 4/May/17
Batista's peak height was actually 6'5 from his prime back in 90's until 2006 when he started getting more injuries. If you don't believe me look at his stats from 2005 Flex Magazine where he also reveals his real weight of 285 and not 318 as he was billed. (12 years ago)
Bucko said on 4/May/17
Good estimate Rob. Consistently look 2cm taller than Chris Pratt.
KH said on 2/May/17
Batista is not shorter then Pratt. He also is not 6'4. Weak 6'3.
Richardspain said on 1/May/17
He never was 190cm he looks 190cm that is different.

I think he is 188cm-189cm barefoot.

With footwear 190 or 191cm sure.

I remember in my country he came here to interview in the talk show"el hormiguero" and I saw that he was wearing elevator shoes. So is posible sometimes he wears elevator boots or good heel.
Jared said on 1/May/17
I am 6 feet and a half barefoot and probably 6 feet 1 1/2 in boots and I took a pic next to him. Dave was about 2 inch taller at best. I will tell u this u have never seen wider shoulders and a skinnier waist in it life. A legit massive V taper . Huge hands too and a very nice guy, actually talked to me about diet and lifting.
Sanny said on 28/Apr/17
Another video promoting GotG2 and he is once again clearly shorter than Pratt. This guy is nowhere near 190 cm mark.

like 2 inches shorter than the 187 chris pratt
189night said on 21/Apr/17
batista have VERY large shoulders, very long wingspan, and a small head for his size. that gives the impression that him is taller than he really is. NO WAY this dude is 190 today, maybe in his peak. today, he is CLEARLY shorter, or at least equal height than 187 chris pratt. having him on 190 range is one of few clear mistakes of this site.
Freak said on 19/Apr/17
With 6'3' Josh Barnett..I don't know what Barnett's height truly is ...People say 191 cm..No idea of footwears..

Rob , who do u think is taller the rock or DV ? In my opinion DV TALLER
Freak said on 18/Apr/17
Looked the same height as 6'3' Josh Barnett..Don't know the footwear but saw the pic of them both in twitter..Maybe bad posture makes people believe Dave is 6'2' or something..
Chris said on 16/Apr/17
Saw him in Powerhouse gym Tampa, some years ago working out with german-brazilian wrestler Gustav Gerlach Curia, listed 1.92cm (6'3".75),who used to wrestler in extint WWE Developmental Territory FCW. Both looked same height to me. There is even a picture btw them.
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
He's not anything over 189cm.
BlueAvenger said on 16/Apr/17
Elizabeth Debicki seems to be a good litmus test as she is often photographed in flat shoes. See her standing next to DB in a GOTG2 event and she's virtually the same height, and that's even with DB wearing some kind of heel. If the stunning Liz is maybe 6'1.5, then DB is 6'2, probably peak. Given he looks on par with Chris Pratt - who seems a genuine 6'1.75 in most photos - footwear depending, then I'm happy to stick with 6'2".
TrumpEvenLiedAboutHisHeight said on 15/Apr/17
THe 6ft1 estimates are from comparisons with Chris Pratt and Bobby Lashley who is pictured with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/17
Rob maybe give him the same as the Rock?
Sean said on 13/Apr/17
Rob - Any chance that Batista is 6'3" at peak?
Editor Rob: yes there is.
Freak said on 13/Apr/17
I am very much confused w Dave Bautista Rob,I mean I guess Lesnar at 6'2'25/Rock at 6'2'5,Goldberg at 6'1'5,Reigns at 6'2'..But Big Dave is confusing..I saw an IG photo of Bautista w 6'3' Titus O Neil and he looked damn near the same..Again in the recent GOTG 2 press in Tokyo he looked an inch shorter than 6'2' Chris Pratt
..A bit confusing..I'd say 6'2' before here..But looking at his big head I'd say 6'2'5 today..6'2'75 prime..Still not sure..
andre said on 10/Apr/17
rob why people say he is 6ft1now barefoot did he lost a massive amount?
Editor Rob: 6ft 1 seems way too low, As seen with Supermamun.
Cody Wade said on 6/Apr/17
Rob when you will give him peak height ? He was about 6ft 3 in his prime, but now he looks 6ft 2.5 1.89cm

Batista use to look 6'3 6'3.25 back in 2003-2004. Currently in 2017 at the age of 48 he might have lost height, he can be around 6'2.5 - 6'2.75 now.
Lak said on 19/Mar/17
Rob who do youthink is taller Batista or Chris Pratt??
Editor Rob: I think Batista looks taller.
Oliver said on 15/Mar/17
Batista seemed taller than Vince Lucero the guy he fought in his MMA debut. Vince is listed at 6'2" on his MMA records. They both stood barefoot in the cage. Who knows maybe Vince is only 5'11"

6'3" peak makes sense.

ore maybe rock have chanse of being couple mm taller at peak and bautista coulp mm taller now
berta said on 7/Mar/17
i wonder who was taller- him or the rock back in 20 years ago before any chanse of injuries. i can see those two guys at pretty mutch the same peak and current
Vicky said on 6/Mar/17
Hey Rob you should give him peak height at 6'3 and should change current height to 6'2.5
Rick said on 4/Mar/17
He is taller than Triple H who is at 6'1.5 or 6'2. So 6'3 is accurate.
Dakota said on 1/Mar/17
Batista is listed at 6'6 at Google and other sites 😂😂 he is 6'3 no more, now he may be 6'2.5 or 6'2.25

My legit uncle actually comes from my biological mom's side not to mention I do share his monkey eyes. I can ask my mom to do a DNA test to see if that's really my legit uncle, but she's going to think I'm insane for asking. I will ask her about it then if I can't really prove to everyone here that it's my legit uncle.
TrumpEvenLiedAboutHisHeight said on 21/Feb/17
Mark(5'9.25") said on 6/Feb/17
Rob, if my legitimate Uncle measures this at late night peak for his ultimately low barefoot, could he go ahead and just claim 6'3"?

I dont know Mark. Just exactly how legitimate is this Uncle of yours? Rob, back me up here.
Editor Rob: would recommend a dna test.

goodini026 said on 5/Feb/17
Max peak id put him at 6ft 4in or just below that. Now...id give him just over 6ft 2in. he's lost a lot of height and size but from what i keep hearing is that people say he's as wide as he is tall. also he's had back surgery a couple times so that could contribute to height loss. What do you think Rob?
Freak said on 5/Feb/17
I'd say Big Dave was absolutely 190 cm in his prime,was taller than almost everyone he faced off except a few..Yes,he wore lifts so he looked close to 6'4' Orton at times back in 2003..Barefoot i believe even in his prime he would be atleast .25 taller than Lesnar & an inch taller than Triple H..Today no more than 6'2' perhaps a fraction above,lost a lot of height more than anyone else both height and weight...Was 2 inches taller then Lashley in 2007..Was 1.5 taller than Goldberg when they faced off in 2003 as JR said 'Batista is bigger than Goldberg' sadly nothing is permanent.. Bautista is a shell of his former self in terms of his imposing physical stature..but still a big guy w good height ..hell 6'2' is tall..
Wrs567 said on 5/Feb/17
Yeah Batista is a very nice guy just like John Cena, Kurt Angle, Seth Rollins etc

I haven't met him, but from what I've seen and heard

I think he needs a peak height on here though of 6'3''
Rocketman said on 3/Feb/17
Trust me..I filmed a WWE Commercial..with this Monster..back in about 2002?...when he was first brought up to the real bigtime of WWE..
He seems as wide as a friggen doorway...and one has to look up to him..and wonder..
That's One big Dude..and I'm 6 1. 225 lbs..
I'd like to see most..tell him..he is not a Beast..
And honestly.one of the nicest people I've ever met..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
I'd strongly consider giving him the same as The Rock, 191cm peak and 189cm today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Rob, would this be his peak?
Editor Rob: around6ft 3 flat is arguable
Wrs567 said on 30/Jan/17

He was a easy 6'3'' with Bobby Lashley who you've got a picture with

This is exactly my Uncle's height from my mom's side, and he regularly gets mistaken for 6'3" occasionally.
berta said on 10/Jan/17
he is a wrestler an 47 years old thwere is a good chance that he have lost 1-2 cm. i think peak 191 if you looks back 10-15 years and now he doesnt looke more than a weak 189 guy wan not that mutch taller than daniel craig
Hasnain said on 9/Jan/17
He is still taller than triple h and that makes him around 190cm mark
Hasnain said on 9/Jan/17
I would give him a peak of 6'4 because he was taller than randy orton in evolution days but he has shrunk a lot after that. Not sure how tall is he now but in the past he was an easy 6'4. What do you say ROB
Freak said on 7/Jan/17
if Bautista thinks he is 6'4' then he must surely think Orton is 6'6'.5 and Undertaker & Show actually being their billed heights I.e 6'10' & 7'2' lol..
jokes apart I'd give Dave no less than 6'2'.25 or 6'2'.5 no more..
Joey said on 5/Jan/17
Here's another Batista/Kane staredown from 2009 or 2010, Their not standing completely straight here but there's a similar difference in height between them here and in the first staredown 8 years before this one Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/17
Wow 6ft7! I think at his heaviest (WCW days) he may have just cleared 300lbs.
James B said on 4/Jan/17
Hmmm Batista is standing with much worse posture than Kane in the photo
Joey said on 30/Dec/16
Rob, Batista was actually announced as 6'7 and 335 pounds in his match against Kane in OVW when he wrestled as "Leviathan" by both Jim Cornette (the Commentator) and the ring announcer which is laughable considering the size difference between him and Kane. "Kane with 5 inches on Leviathan and Leviathan with 10 pounds on Kane" was what Cornette claimed on commentary during their staredown. Click Here
Editor Rob: Joey, the bigger the height the better in wrestling...at least it seemed to be the mindset for the promoters.

I'd love the Wrestling world to introduce Measurement and Weigh in segments of wrestlers.

Bull*****g and inflating height is lame.
Puma said on 27/Dec/16
I have three questions for you.
Firstly, did you upgraded 1 cm, Big Rob?
Secondly, what size of his head?
And a 21 cm head is so abnormal a 173 174 guy?
Thanks Rob, we trust.
Editor Rob: he's been on this mark for years now, I think he has a near 10 inch flat head, big Chris Pratt I think has a slightly bigger head.

21cm is a small head for 5ft 8 range.
Joey said on 24/Dec/16
Him being billed 6'6 and Angle being billed 6'2 at some point is hilarious to me 😂
Aza said on 21/Dec/16
I would say that Dave has lost a bit. Realistically would peg him a solid 6'2 these days. 6'2.75 was his peak for sure.
anyonmious said on 14/Dec/16
I say 6'2.5" for his peak. 6'1.5" for his present height.
MDV said on 14/Dec/16
Peak between 6 ft 2.75 and 6 ft 3... Today around 6 ft 2
Freak said on 12/Dec/16
Rob,after the downgrades of The Rock & Chris Pratt which I agree full time..I think its time to downgrade Big Dave to 6'2' though I believe Pratt edged him out every time and yes Bill Goldberg to 6'1' if Lesnar is 6'2'.25 or 6'2'.5 in all honesty.
dpp said on 8/Dec/16
he's never full 6ft3 even in his peak ,in 2007 with edge 6ft3 (that time i think he still peak height) batista shorter than him 2cm and now batista lose some height ,so i think he is 187-188 now.
Guanzo said on 7/Dec/16

Hes more about 6ft 3.5
Dan Chernau said on 17/Nov/16
I've never laughed so hard for hearing 6'5". Rob do you think 5'11" is more accurate today?
Editor Rob: Dan, of course Dave isn't as short as 5ft 11, but he can look 6ft 2-3 zone.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/16
Rob, do you still think a strong 6ft3 peak is possible for big Dave?




He looks around the 190cm mark today

I most I can give Dave today is 6.2
Freak said on 15/Oct/16
Dave Bautista will not be a single cm over 6.2,He is shorter than Chris Pratt actually who is a decent 6.2.. Dave has never edged out Chris ever in a movie or anywhere..So,its tough but I'd say if he stands straight he'd be 6.2 today..
prime might've been 6.25 or 6'2'.75 hard to say considering he always wore lifts even till his last WWE match..but he lost a bit due to various surgeries..
S.J.H said on 13/Oct/16
I had a feeling if batisa standing back to back barefoot with the rock they're would be same height
Andrew Smith said on 11/Oct/16
Rob chris pratt is edging dave could you explain why is it?
Editor Rob: I do think Batista is a bit taller than Chris, in some photos though you could find their heights equal.
josh jeffords said on 11/Oct/16
Dave never looked 6 5 well except in the wwe video games..
In riddick he was a good couple over vin but his height is suspect i bet under 511.
He looked taller than a very overweight 6 2 billed guy who couldnt even stand up straight.
He is a big 6 1 maybe weak 6 2 on the street barefoot hes shorter than BenAF who is the 6 2 yard stick it seems.
His acting is hilarious he should do more and stop lying about height.
andre said on 2/Oct/16
Batista was huge until 2008 but then he lose height i think he is now 6ft1.5 barefoot and was 6ft2 barefoot in the past
Freak said on 30/Sep/16
Dave could have been 6.27 in his prime early 2000 barefoot,today he is barely 6.2..He has lost a few cms..Big Dave still wore lifts in his recent WWE tenure..6.2 for Dave today.
BorkLaser said on 27/Sep/16
Actually in that picture he'd be slightly taller than his opponent. Dave's posture is worse, and if we correct for the camera tilt Dave is easily taller. The problem with him is in recent pictures he didn't seem taller than Chris Pratt, who's listed here at 6'2" Click Here, but then here he is with 6'2" Sam Smith and 5'10.25" Daniel Craig Click Here. It could be his posture, but I think for now the 190 cm listing is good for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/16
I wouldn't say he's lost that much height
Kris said on 24/Sep/16
He is currently 6'2 MAX. His 6'6 billed height is hilarious. Here is a picture from his MMA debut where his opponent is 6'2. Click Here They are the same height.
Crane said on 23/Sep/16
@Aza Very likely. Look at guys like The Rock, Batista, HHH, Hogan, etc.. Many of them have shrunk more than an inch from their peak to these days. In case of Dave Batista, I'd say 6'2.5 - 6'2.75 at his peak and 6'1 - 6'1.5 these days. (Most of you guys would find it ridiculous or BS but It's true and I suggest you all do a research about his pics these days with another wrestles or celebs then you'll know what I'm talking about)
Truth said on 16/Sep/16
Barefoot and in his Prime, Batista was 6'3"
Barefoot and Now, Batista is 6'1.75"
Aza said on 14/Sep/16
Does steroid abuse affect height and is it the reason why Batista seems to have lost height?

khali is at the back,he is like 7.1 ..everybody under or at his shoulders,Dave is 6.25 at most here and after the back surgery he had some years ago likely 6.15-6.2..hell he used lifts on matches his recent unsuccessful return to wwe
Nobody said on 2/Sep/16
Batista was never taller than Edge if you watch segments with them, someone even asked Edge on Twitter who was taller out of him and Batista and Edge said he is taller than Batista.
Cannister said on 2/Sep/16
@Clark, "most" heads are about 8" in length, and does it look like Khali has a "normal" sized head? His head is easily 12-14" long. Also, Khali is 7'1, not 7'4. Which makes Batista roughly 6'1-6'2
Alex said on 1/Sep/16
@Clark, what are you talking about man... if you think Khali's head is 8 inches you have go to be a nut... I think 10.5 inches for a guy his size is more reasonable, the guy is a giant.
Lovi Sarwara said on 1/Sep/16
He is definitely 6'3 or 6'3.5 but I don't think he is 6'2.75.
senu said on 30/Aug/16
His mma stats is 6'4" and 265lbs. He is clearly 2 inches taller than vince lucero who is said to be 6'2".
Clark said on 29/Aug/16
Batista is at Khali's chin level, and most heads are about 8" in length. So if Khali is 7'3 then Dave is 6'7ish

Sean said on 25/Aug/16
Rob, I know wrestlers take a beating in the ring with bumps and all, but it seems like most wrestlers on this site or unlisted have lost height from their peak. There are a very few I am sure that stay the same height most of their adult life but wrestlers seem to lose height earlier than others. Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan seem to take the largest drop.
Nobody said on 16/Aug/16

for anybody saying Batista was same as Orton in the early days..he used to wear lifts..& back in his return in WWE 2 years ago he still wore lifts..but lost a bit of height.. check his match w sheamus..6.25-6.3 in prime..today 6.15-6.2(shorter than Chris Pratt)

I always thought he was more like in Ben Affleck range, 188-189 cm.
Deacon said on 13/Jul/16
6'2.75-6'3.25 seems accurate for Dave
Ibracadabra said on 2/Jul/16
Rob, is it possible 192cm for him at peak ? He was almost as tall as Orton at the beginning of his carreen in WWE.

Rob why back in the evolution batista was same height as randy orton and in the last time orton towered over him , did batista lose height ?
Editor Rob: could it have been camera angles or maybe thicker boots by Dave?
I wouldn't rule out a chance of some loss, albeit fraction size.
Crane said on 20/May/16
6'2.5 - 6'3 is possible at his peak. Today, according to all the pics of him you can find on google and other sites, he surely is within 6'1.5 - 6'2 range.
WWF said on 18/May/16
Anyone watch when Batista confronted the Undertaker after WM23? Batista was like half a head shorter, since he came out in dress shoes (still have about 1" lift) and Taker had boots on. So if Taker is supposedly 6'5 then Batista with dress shoes is 6'-6'1
Koft35 said on 12/May/16
With casual footwear such as sneakers :: With boots
Batista 6' :: 6'2-3
Sheamus 6' :: 6'2.5
Triple h 6' :: 6'1.5
Trust me, these camera angles and dress attire do everything they can to make wrestlers look taller and bigger. Look at them on unformal instagram posts, etc, they don't have a tall appearance whatsoever.
Nobody said on 10/May/16
Ok so lets compare segments between the following wrestlers: Edge, Batsita, Sheamus, and Triple H. Out of them all I believe Edge is the tallest at 6'3 and here he is in a face off with Triple H from 2004 where Edge just edges out Triple H:

Click Here

Edge here proving he is taller than Batista:

Click Here

Edge here has a staredown with Sheamus who he proves to be just a hair taller than while Sheamus has wrestling boots on and Edge has dress shoes:

Click Here

Here Sheamus BARELY edges out Triple H even in his wrestling boots:

Click Here

Batista edging out Sheamus on two occasions:

Click Here

Click Here

Batista just edging out Triple H in a face off a few days before their Wrestlemania match:

Click Here

Again Batista looking taller than Triple H in 2014, not by much though, both seem to have lost a bit of height:

Click Here

So out of them all Edge is the tallest at 6'3, Batsita coming in second at 6'2 1/2, Sheamus then at 6'2 1/4 and Triple H at 6'2. I believe Batista and Triple H have lost a bit of height these days though.
Johno said on 2/May/16
Looks about 5.5-6 inches taller than Andrew Scott, who looks around 5'7.25 with Rob thus, Batista looks sub-6'2 with him.
Nathan said on 22/Apr/16
I'd say Dave is a solid 6'1.5" man. His massive build and lifts he commonly wears can give the appearance of him being much taller than he actually is. He was easily 275lbs in his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, where would you place Big Dave?

A) 193cm/191cm
B) 192.5cm/190.5cm
C) 192cm/190cm
D) 191.5cm/189.5cm
E) 191cm/189cm

Photos are not accurate sometimes, angles do a HUGE effect. Look at him in videos, he does not look over 6'2 ever in his career.
184.3cm (Night) said on 2/Apr/16
Can't be 6'4" not even close. 6-7 inches taller than Mamun who is 5'8".

So he is somewhere in the 6'2" range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/16
185cm is a joke
Andrea said on 1/Apr/16
With Lee Pace stuck at 6'3.75, there's noway this guy is near his listing...
511Can said on 31/Mar/16
Google lists him at 1.98m, what a joke. I think the editor did a few typos, should be 185
Alexander said on 25/Mar/16
Back in 2005 I was close friends with Batista's gym instructor, the guy knew everything about Dave. This is from his mouth: "In the ring Dave wears 2 1/2 boot soles, and has shoulders as wide as 2 doorways, with such wide shoulders and a couple extra inches on his feet this allows him to exaggerate the look of quite a few more inches to his height".
Sam SL said on 16/Mar/16
Looks shorter than Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy and no taller than him in all the media photos.
Kale said on 15/Mar/16
6'1 - Look at the picture of him with MMA fighters Jake Shields (5'11) And Nick Diaz (6'0) Also 6'2 RZA looks to have an inch on him.
In his prime lets give him 188-190 cm in his bootlifts, flat supposedly 6'-6'1; look at his body proportions, his torso to leg proportion is of an average joe, while his torso is obviously not very long, hence he makes up for this with his long neck. If he had the same torso he has with the legs or Orton, he'd likely be in the 6'3-6'4 range.
Alex said on 13/Mar/16
Nope, he's not 193 cm, Orton is a bit taller than him, around 2-3 cm. 190 cm is good for Batista.
Average Joe said on 8/Mar/16
LOL.....you guys make me laugh! This guy is most definitely not a small guy by no means! I met him at a WWE event, and he was quite a bit taller than me. I'm exactly 6'0 barefoot, precisely! Dave Batista had to be minimum 6'3 plus! My guess is right at 6'4. I have met many other WWE Wrestlers. As I stated, I'm 6'0 precisely barefoot, 6'1 in most of my footware.
I was probably an inch taller than Steve Austin. I had about an inch on John Cena. Randy Orton was close by, but I couldn't get that close to him. He looked around 6'4 or so? Kane walked right by me, and I couldn't even begin to guess that guy! Let's just say he's huge! Definitely up there in the 6'8 plus range! The Big Show was the biggest I've met. I would guess he's around 7'0? Give or take? These guys are a lot bigger than what they look on television.
wwf said on 24/Feb/16
@The Ben the ringside ground level for audience is lower than the ground that the wrestlers are on ... You can even tell since there is a pretty thick mat covering that area as well. Yes, WWE does everything they can to make wrestlers look bigger: ground level, lighting, camera angles, etc. WWF does twice as more
The Ben said on 21/Feb/16
I was ringside in 05 and would have said 6'5 for Batista, he must have had some HUGE lifts.
He has terrible posture, stood straight I could see 6'3. As for his normal stance I'd say 6'2.
He looks way smaller these days, I was surprised when he weighed a genuine 265 for his MMA fight. He must have been 280+ in WWE.
In an interview with muscle and fitness h appear said he diets down to 250 but couldn't get any lower, he's a monster if a man.
KPS said on 20/Feb/16
Well Danial Craig is 5' 10" and Batista looked like he had maybe 3 inches on him, so I'd say he's around 6'1" maybe 6'2". The WWF always throw an extra a few on their wrestlers (you have nothing to measure them against in the ring)
Hogan was always meant to be 6'7" but now is clearly nearer 6'2" - 6'4" at best (apparently ops have taken 3-5 inches off him... Yeah)

rikki said on 12/Feb/16
You can even tell by the length of his arms that he is nowhere near 6'5 ... Though his arms are massive you can still tell, its really easy. Though people have different proportions a 6'5 guy nonetheless would have "above the norm" long limbs. His proportions are equivalent to a 6' - 6'1 guy
Vegas said on 10/Feb/16
Johno said on 6/Feb/16
Mamun was slightly a shorter 5'8 then Rob but a 5'8 non-the-less; he would be over 5'8 at some point in the day but could drop below 5'8. Batista was around 6'1 compared to him.

Paul said on 2/Feb/16
191 cm peak, and 189 cm today. While I believe he has lost some height over the years, it can't be over 2 cms.
120 said on 26/Jan/16
Rob, i think this might need a peak height. After working in the ring for over a decade and has gone through quite a bit of injuries, there is no doubt he could probably lose a bit of height. He definitely could look 6ft 2 flat nowadays.
Laami said on 20/Jan/16
@BobbyCrush do you do squats, leg presses, deadlifts, etc, and take a beating in the ring, for well over a decade? C'mon this guy probably lost at least an inch or so

'in his prime'..'peak height'...wtf are you guys talking about ? I'm 45 and I am still 194 cms....that same height I was at 25....sure i'll lose a bit in later life but c'mon that's not happening for at least another decade and a half.

Dave Bautista came into a store I managed back in early 2006. Super awesome guy. I'm 5'11", almost 6', and Bautista was basically my height. I'd give him an inch or so, putting at 6'1" tops. He is and was almost as wide at the shoulders as he is tall. Good grief he's a big guy.

There has been no evidence provided to suggest mamun "has never been even close to 5'8"

@Alex 6'0 wrestling boots can easily bring you from 6' to 6'3. As they have calf/ankle coverers so the wearer won't trip like women's unsupported heels.
Craiglist said on 9/Nov/15
@./ I thought you were making a bad judgement, but when I thought about it you are correct. Look at Batista's mma fight, he looks very short compared to his other appearances. Wrestling boots definitly give a few inches for certain.
./ said on 9/Nov/15
@Gianni Rory Kinnear, like any celeb, likely also buffed his height up a bit. He doesn't look 183 but could possibly be. Just take Batista as 183cm in sneakers, wrestling boots 185-190cm.
Charlie said on 8/Nov/15
No its not possible, look closer, he is standing slightly behind, not as strait and still is 3+ cm taller. So 190 is more likely.
Alex 6'0 said on 7/Nov/15
Never looked more than 6'3 tops with 6'4 Orton back then. Looked more 6'2.5 range. Today prob closer to 6'2 flat

So 185cm for Batista could be possible.
Mass said on 3/Nov/15
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover not only lifts but they also use camera tricks, just like in WWE.
It is easy to tell, when wrestlers are walking to the ring, they look much shorter. The moment they step in the ring they seem like 12cm taller.
A man said on 2/Nov/15
It always made me laugh back in the Evolution days that Batista was billed at 6,6" and Randy Orton 6,4", despite Orton clearly being taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/15
He looks gigantic in Spectre but probably in lifts to dwarf Craig and to have that classic towering Bond henchman look
./ said on 2/Nov/15
@Gianni he looks under 185cm actually, due to his big boot heels giving him a bit of height. And if anyone had higher ground level on that mountain slope, it would be Batista.
Gianni said on 28/Oct/15
Google "Dave Batista Daniel Craig". If it's true that Daniel Craig is 178cm tall (as it is listed here) then David Batista looks like 185 cm max. in the pics with the whole Bond Crew or with Daniel Craig and Lea Seydoux in the Austrian mountains.
