Come on, Rampage, you telling me Billy Gunn Was freakin 6ft5? I'm not tryin to downgrade him, even if I think 189.5-190cm range is quite likely, but my point is, 190.5 is reasonable enough.
But not anything over that, not after being up several hours, certainly.
Jed said on 22/Aug/16
Rob, Troy Garity - listed on here a 6'1.5 is clearly within half an inch of the Rock give or take, and if anything he looks taller.

In the latest episode of Ballers, around 5 mins in, there's a zoomed out, head on shot of them walking towards the camera next to each other either. The Rock has a footwear advantage, and it actually looks like he's on a slight slope above Troy; even then they look very similar. There's another shot of them side by side (can't see the ground) in which Troy looks taller.

One thing can be said with 100% certainty however, there's not a chance the Rock is more than 0.5" taller than him.

i think 187cm barefoot isn't impossible today

Rob,how much shorther does Rock look with AJ ?

I see no less than a full 3 inches
Editor Rob: at the very start when they are more back to back I think Rock is near 6ft 3 there, in some of the clip he can appear a bit under, but still I wouldn't go as low as 6ft 2 there.
Phil said on 18/Aug/16
I'd say peak, he was a weak 6'4" and today is 6'3" flat

is he a giant

Not in wrestling, he isn't
Lorne??? said on 18/Aug/16
If anyone can look at him with 193cm Billy Gunn, whom Rob has met(though in fairness, more like 194cm peak, ~20 years ago, is probable) but still, if you compare them both at "peak" still in the 90's... A very solid 190 is still a good bet for Rock, 190.5 absolute low is even possible... But 191+? Absolute garbage.

(IMHO, but check him with Billy Gunn for yourself).

Not to mention Conan, in 2002 or 2003, a good 2 inches, I mean I remember watching it over a decade ago, and was shocked. In the same interview, he made some claim of already being '6'2 or 3' at age 14, an 6ft4 by 15'. I'm sure the interview is on the net. Anyway, my 2 cents. Also, a cm of loss, plus developing poor posture explains him often looking shorter now.

Peak

Out of bed: 193-194cm
Before bed: 191-192cm

Today

Out of bed: 191-192cm
Before bed: 189-190cm
Brandon said on 15/Aug/16
He's in his 40s with years of wrestling and heavy weightlifting behind him. It's definitely reasonable that he's lost some height. Peak: 6'3" Current: 6'2"
Zoom Omega Distortion said on 15/Aug/16
Peak: 191cm
Now: 190cm
Sometimes he looks 189cm
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Aug/16
I still have Rock at 6'2.5 peak and today 6'2. Thats if he's even lost any height by his age yet. If so it would only be a fraction
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Aug/16
Vin is 5'11 range though I believe?
Danimal said on 10/Aug/16
Vin Diesel almost the same height as The Rock today (of course the Rock is slightly leaning in and Vin Diesel is most likely wearing platform boots): Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/16
Rob, could 6ft2½ be closer today?


I definitely think 6ft3¼ peak is fair
Editor Rob: I think 6ft 2.75 is a fair bet today, is he going to be just 6ft 2.5? It is an ongoing argument, by the time I decide he probably will be heading to 6ft 2.25 :)
Mike said on 7/Aug/16
Rob, who do you think would measure taller today, The Rock or Batista?
Editor Rob: possible still within a small fraction of each other, likely 189-90 zone.
BorkLaser said on 6/Aug/16
Those who are saying he was never over 6'2" AT HIS PEAK, how do you justify the image of him where he clearly looks down on 6'2" Triple H even when Dwayne isn't in perfect posture? (even if you argue 6'1.5" for Triple H, this still puts Dwayne at 6'3" accounting for posture) Click Here
Pious Satan said on 5/Aug/16
He did look that range standing next to Michael Strahan who's about 6'4.5" fair listing
The Man said on 5/Aug/16
Rock is a solid 6'3", Rob is spot on with the listing. He never lost any height, it's just that his posture became bad after he stopped wrestling, hence why he appears to be 6'2" a lot of times. Plus, no sports organization (other than pro wrestling) is stupid enough to list their players 3 inches taller than they actually are (Rock was a former Canadian footballer.) I've seen a small handful of football players that got their height exaggerated 2 inches taller, but never 3. In conclusion, he's not 6'2".
Candyman said on 5/Aug/16
Good listing.
sussudio said on 4/Aug/16
He was never 6'3 next to measured athletes.

Hell he only had 2 inches on 6'0 Steve Austin.

6'2 max peak and 6'1 range today.
Canson said on 4/Aug/16
6'3 peak like Rampage said is fathomable given the life he led and the way he was listed in football. I honestly before looking at a real pic would've assumed he was 192 based on a 6'5 listing and his lifts
Puma said on 3/Aug/16
He is never 6 ft 4 or 5.
6 ft 3 spot on.
temple said on 3/Aug/16
Rock was 6'1.75-6'2 peak in 2004.

The Eddie George Kevin Carter pictures seal the deal.
freak said on 3/Aug/16
sorry to say The Rock might have been 6.3 in his peak..but today a weak 6.2 hey several guys who are legit 6.2 edges him out & he had the audacity to claim 6.5 in social media..Really??
James B said on 3/Aug/16
The rock is 6ft5 in his dreams
The Man said on 2/Aug/16
Rampage may be right. The Rock looked only 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch shorter than a peak 6ft4 Billy Gunn in one WWF segment. And Rock wasn't known for wearing particularly thick footwear either.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/16
Not under 6ft3 peak…
Canson said on 30/Jul/16
@Crane: we're similar (only about .75cm diff). I measure between 194-194.3 (between 6'4 3/8-1/2 range) after 5 hours and usually don't drop below 194 flat for the day.
Dsmooth said on 30/Jul/16
The Rock is a legit 6'2 guy, 6'3 is a stretch. At most i would give him 6'2.25. The picture with Charles Barkley says it all.
Leonardo 173cm said on 30/Jul/16
Im sure, he is 6'2.5 today

Wow, that's pretty tall. That means you're a solid 6'4" who doesn't dip under that mark.
Canson said on 27/Jul/16
@Candyman: you're right about Suggs. I've met him and he only in person looked around an inch (give or take) shorter than me. I'd put him in the 6'3-6'3.5 range.
Crane said on 27/Jul/16
@The Man I was measured at 6'4.15 (193.4) on stadiometer after woke up for 6 hours. ^_^

I reckon it gives a bit of a boost compared to regular street shoes (in order to look larger than life in the fan's POV). Steve Austin tended to wear flatter boots than Rocky.

You can see Austin's style of boot here:

@Jake: I doubt he ever was 6'5. you think he's only 3/4" shorter than your estimate for Lebron (you estimated Lebron to be 6'5.75" at his lowest)? Barkley is a good 2-3" shorter than Lebron and Rock is about 2.5" shorter than Barkley.
Canson said on 24/Jul/16
@Shane: I agree and I think also that the Rock being listed at his claim 6'5" was high from the get go and he's never really been that tall. I can see him prob around 191 or so prime out of bed and 190 at his low but now more like a solid 188-189. My 6'3 friend who met him guessed him an inch shorter so chances are the Rock is still a solid 6-2 5 hrs on his feet maybe down from 6'2.5"
Crane said on 24/Jul/16
Would to see him claim 6'5 in front of my face, lol! If he met me he'd have thought I'm 6'6 - 6'7.
Cosgrove said on 24/Jul/16
Rock looked over an inch shorter than 6-3 suggs. Rock was 6-2 peak. He might be a bit shorter now

@heightchecker34: lol why are you "sick of all these downgrades"? How does it affect you?
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
I honestly would've believed him to be a strong 6'3 in his football days esp being that ppl add 1.5" to their height on the roster
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@RP: Suh measured that 6'3 7/8 early in the morning. Probably more 6'3 3/8-1/2 in reality. My 6'3 friend who met the Rock says he's 6'2. Of course maybe he can be a fraction over.
jake said on 23/Jul/16
the rock is six-five
RP said on 22/Jul/16
Suh measured barefoot @ 6'3-7/8"
Suggs measured barefoot @ 6'3-3/8"
Suh looked 1" taller in most scenes & Suggs looked about 1/2" to 3/4" taller in most scenes. Double proof that current Barefoot Rock is 6'2-3/4" ...assuming nothing fishy was going on with anyone's footwear??
Suh: 6'4"
Suggs: 6'3.5"
Rock: 6'2.75"

Actually 193/194cm out of bed in his 20's is possible if he was indeed 191/192cm range

Seriously, why after all these many years do you still want everyone to be taller than they really are? He has never even measured at a full 190/191 even in his 20's, let alone 193/194.

----

Funny comment! especially since you are the one dreaming and claiming your childhood heroes like Hogan, Beefcake, Piper, dibiase etc all to be 3-4 inches taller than their real heights.
hacker9001 said on 21/Jul/16
190cm 6'2.75" at the moment
done !
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@Danimal: Hes def not that tall I agree but in Rampage's defense the Rock has led people to believe he's that tall. My 6'3 friend (at his lowest) actually met Rock in person last year and says he has him by roughly an inch. He estimated him to be at most 6'2 maybe But prime maybe he was 6'2.5. He has also met Barkley in person and estimates him as roughly 1.5" taller than he is and said he's my height roughly (of course he could have a small fraction) In the pic with Wahlberg and Shaq Rock looks between 2-3" shorter than Barkley when you blow it up definitely closer to 3 so the measurements he gave just about add up (possible Barkley is more 6'4 5/8) and Rock barely scraping 6'2 or 6'1 7/8.

Agree. His peak was 6'2.5ish seems like other then you have Justin bieber at 5'5 and change lol, we see the same thing for most of these guys stature.

I always felt like the rock and Alberto Del Rio are the same height and oddly enough both have been billed at 6'5. Similar build too.
Johan said on 20/Jul/16
6ft 3 peak. Was about the same as Hogan who still looks close to 6ft 3 today.

Looked it next to Mamun who is 5ft 8.

Was taller than Mick Foley. Confirmed at 6ft 2,

Taller than D lo Brown also confirmed at 6ft 2.


Today he seems to go between 6'2.5" and 6'2.75" So max 2cm loss.

Holds up when you compare him to Brandon Routh who is 6'2.5" confirmed.

Doesn't look more than 2 inches on Cena either who we know is in the 6ft range.

The biggest piece of evidence was the pic with Hasselhoff. We know that the Hoff still looks close to 6ft 4 but he was barefoot and still taller than Dwayne who had a thin shoe. 6ft 3 doesn't seem likely.
heightchecker34 said on 19/Jul/16
I am sick of all these downgrades, The Rock ALWAYS looked like a 6'3 guy. He was always taller than Triple H (188 cm), Stone Cold Steve Austin (186-187), and (Mick Foley-check their segment, Rock was also wearing flats). Currently he may have dropped to the 6'2.5 mark, however during his wrestling days he was most def a 6'3er.
Optimus1827 said on 19/Jul/16
I believe rock was 6'4 back in his highschool and football days, but now he looks to have lost a few inches due to the wear and tear on his body when he used to wrestle and probably all that weight lifting he does now I mean look at what happened to hulk hogan if you look at hogan in his younger days he was tall you can tell he looked to be around 6'6- 6'7 now he looks way shorter maybe 6'2 I know hogan said that he had a few surgeries on his spine and that caused his lost in height but still... Anyway Nowadays rock is 6'2
Jed said on 18/Jul/16
Terrell Suggs had at least an inch on him on ballers. DJ wearing dress shoes. He very rarely, if ever, looks 6'3, and he often looks shorter than anyone over 6'2. I wouldn't be surprised if he was 189cm morning, or even 188.

Charles barkley made him look 6'2". This guy can look anywhere from 6'1"-6'3" compared to other 6'0"+ people. I would say 6'3"-6'3.25" peak and 6'2.5"-6'2.75" current
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Pucko: so the Rock "claimed" he's 6'4 in his 20s then when Charles Barkley claims (and was measured) 6'4 5/8 why don't you take his word? Not to mention his teammates even said the same

Ive seen plenty of college football players fudged by 3 inches, and some by as much as 4. Its even more in high school. Way worse than basketball.basketball.

Face it, Rock was 6'2 peak.
Sam said on 14/Jul/16
The Rock was listed at 6'5 at Miami. In college when they fudge your height they will add an inch and round up(basically your height in full football gear). So the rock had to have been at least a strong 6'3.
Pucko said on 13/Jul/16
Once again Rampage is spot on. It's quite obvious that Dwayne was taller 10 years ago Click Here

191/192cm peak
190cm today

BTW, he claims that he was 6'4 at age 15 (5:25) in that clip :) But i don't know if that's worth adding in the description?
hacker9001 said on 13/Jul/16
he always wake up very early , like 4 am or so, so the last of day he will be much shorter (-2 cm i think)

Height wise new looked a relatively small guy in the WWE world LOL.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 10/Jul/16
Rob, how much height do you think he loses throughout the day? I would estimate that he loses at least 3 CM, possibly even a bit more.
Editor Rob: his discs might not be in as good shape, so his morning height in mid 40's may be less than his 20's, when his discs didn't have the years of wrestling and action films to cope with.
James B said on 10/Jul/16

At his peak he would have measured 194cm in shoes no problem

Good video, hacker9001. At some instances that can look more than 4 inches, but still proves Dwayne isn't as low as 6'1" or even 6'2". He's still around the 6'3" mark

Johan said on 6/Jul/16
At the 0.01 second mark if you pause it you will see that is more than 3 inches. Vin is eyelevel with his chin almost. A solid 3.5 inches so almost coming out at Rob's listings.

Except a 6'3" Rock gives Vin 5'11.5" instead of the weak 6 foot.

Interesting as I have always thought Vin is 181 cm ( 5ft 11.25) so Dwayne being under 6ft 3 today also adds up. He does look 1.90 m there though and not as short as 1.89m in other pics unless Vin is really 1.80 m - 5ft 11.
jake said on 5/Jul/16
the rock WAS 6'4 1/2 194cm but has now lost height and is now 193cm the reason why he still claims 6'5 is he isn't aware he lost height and is closer to 6'4

I'd say when he was in WWE he looked small compared to some Monstrous sized men in the ring. Heck even billy gunn at 6'4 legit looked unremarkable.

6'3 and 6'4 in some settings can look small. I think when you get to 6'4.5-6'5 in any environment you will look impressive.
AlexMahone said on 30/Jun/16
Rob, I said this earlier for you but why post you obviously troll comments? Lot of people (maybee Viper Clowns) I Think are the same person. All people who says that The Rock is only 6'1" or below are trolls.
Editor Rob: yes that is Viper who pops by regularly...

If I let through all comments, believe me, it would look even more extreme at times. Some people genuinely do guess someone 3 inches lower or taller than the listing.

The Rock seems rather "young" to have already lost an inch in height from his peak of 6'4", but lifting heavy weights and all of the injuries in pro wrestling can take their toll on a wrestlers and other stuntmen who haven't even reached 50.

Still theres posters in here who claims that a mid/late 80's Hogan already had lost INCHES - thats around 10(!) years younger than what Rock is today(!)

So absurd!
KBeagles said on 26/Jun/16
Steven Jackson is a measured 6'1, and Rock still looks shorter.

The guy is shorter than 6'2 today. Also on Rock's instagram page hes standing next to a new silverado truck in his movie. That truck is 6'1.5 in height and Rock looks exactly the same height IN SHOES.

The man is 6'1 now.

I'm not sure that Rock was a full inch shorter than Liam.More like 2cms tops.Anyway 6ft 2.25-6ft 2.5 Looks a good estimation nowdays and a Solid 6'3 peak.
Mark said on 25/Jun/16
@Rob aren't the pics Anon183cm posted pretty clear evidence that Liam is an inch taller?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure there is enough to say, I would have said Liam's hair was more than 1/4 thick.
Johan said on 25/Jun/16
Nice pics of that show Anon183cm

Liam as usual isn't standing great but we can see there that Dwayne is easily an inch shorter than Goldblum who is under 6'4" today.

People need to start looking at the top of their heads and not going by eyelevel. Guys like Dwayne raise it to give the illusion they are taller. I wouldn't say he is under 189 cm tjough as Goldblum is still listed 192cm. He is solid 6'2.5".

1 min 21 seconds on that clip they are both straight. Thats not 3 inches and you could even argue that Joshua isn't the full 6'6". He certainly looks a weak one next to Rob.

3.5 in minimum and we never get to see Dwayne's footwear. Anthony has a 1 inch sneaker its a very common brand.

He looked 190 with Joshua, the guy is not under 6'2.5. Claims of anything less than 188 is just playing crazy.

Here are two photos that show how the Rock appears around an inch shorter than Liam Hemsworth, and not merely 0.25" as this site currently suggests. I think he should be downgraded to 6'2.5" minimum although I am in favour of something like 6'2.25" like Justin Hartley. Also those photos with David Haye are interesting, he looks shorter in both of them.

You're right. He's 6'2" today. I'd still give him a 6'2.5" peak height though.

He was 6'2,5 his peak, but now weak 6'2 (189 morning 187 evening maybe). He needs downgrade.

To be fair with Anthony,189 TOPS
Joshua is listed 6'6 but is more like 1,97 and Rock looked almost 4 inches shorter so 188-189 6'2.25 nowdays is very plausible

At 1:21 on that clip he looks a solid 3.5 inches shorter than that 6'6" Boxer. So it does seem like he is under but still easily over 6'2". I doubt they have funny shoes there.

@denizens we really need to see the footware in that Foto. I've met david haye and he was only a hair taller than me if anything and I'm just 6'1 so I pegged haye at 187/188 max. My guess is that Haye is in sneakers and the rock is in dress shoes in that foto

Went and watched the clip and he is height aware. He stands very straight when liam hugs him and instead of standing next to one another sly old Dwayne stays nearer the camera.
He is for sure not under 6'2.5" though as he isn't a solid inch under those 6'3" guys.

Shane said on 12/Jun/16
There are some very silly posts about losing height due to lifting that are untrue. Steroid use can influence height loss but lifting alone makes little if any difference re: height. In fact it can help maintain height and posture and keep bones strong.
Editor Rob: I wouldn't call it silly, as posted elsewhere on here, there is some evidence that long-term heavy lifting could effect height:

"When comparing lumbar magnetic resonance images of 24 runners, 26 soccer players, 19 weight lifters, and 25 shooters, disc degeneration and bulging were most common among weight lifters; soccer players had similar changes in the L4-S1 discs...Maximal weight lifting was associated with greater degeneration throughout the entire lumbar spine, and soccer with degeneration in the lower lumbar region. No signs of accelerated disc degeneration were found in competitive runners"
Shane said on 12/Jun/16
Rock is only in his early 40s, and most people with good posture, diet have lost little height by then and then some essentially none. If he has already lost an inch or more, that would be extremely rare for a healthy, fit adult. I assume people are pointing to steroid use and/or the toll of wrestling for such an extreme height loss at an early age, no? Many other celebs on site are not being downgraded at same or even older age so...

I don't have a link to a picture unfortunately, but Graham Norton recently had The Rock, Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum on his show and they were all stood up at one point. To me, The Rock looked at least 1" shorter than either Liam or Jeff, and Liam looked slightly taller, maybe half an inch, than Goldblum. I think The Rock is not more than 6'2". He's tall, but not as tall as the other two.
grizz said on 11/Jun/16
On Graham Norton show, standing next to Liam Hemsworth & Jeff Goldblum, he was clearly the shortest guy.
SMH if even in this evident situation someone would still claim that the Rock is 6'5.

Dwayne didn't lose 1 inch of height. He was very safe/careful in the ring, so he didn't lose as much as Hogan for sure! Hogan did leg drops which messed up his back and made him undergo surgeries. I think the Rock was 192 cm at his peak and at worse 190 cm today, if that.

I'm roughly 6'3, standing at 190cm. When i saw the rock, he looked roughly 1-2cm bigger than me. His shoes seemed to have similar sneakers to mine at around 1". I'd say the rock is a solid 191/192cm for me, not near the 6'5 that he's billed at. You can see when he's next to a 6' vin diesel he isn't 5 inches bigger.

TALLER than, not bigger than.

There's no single evidence that he was 6'3.25 - 6'4 at his peak or now, you guys are good at made up something. The most accurate and reasonable range for him is 6'3 at his peak and 6'2 - 6'2.5 nowadays.

I agree.
Johan said on 6/Jun/16
@Aza

He also looked 6'3" next to 5'8" Mamun from user heights.
Nowadays Looks very similar to certified 6'2.5" Brandon routh. Has 2 inches on 6'0.5 Cena A good inch shorter than certified 6'4" Hasselhoff with thin shoes ( 0.5-0.6 in approx)

He can look sometimes a flat 6'2" but he does this weird stretch thing with his neck. I will show a pic of him with Irina at the Hercules premier, I thought he was around 6'2" from that but his posture is awful.

Click Here

and then when straight - Click Here

Now Irina is 5'9" with a 3 inch heel making her 6'0" and in the first pic he looks 3in taller putting him at 6'3" with shoes. So like I thought 6 ft 2.

However that group pic shows that it is more than 3 in he is standing much better and looks minimum 6'2.5" there. He can sometimes still pull off looking closer to Rob's listing.

I agree with your observation.Clearly taller than certified 6"2 DLo per Rob. I do think peak he was slightly over 6'3 peak but has lost an inch in height over 20 years through wrestling, OTT weight training and his physique does not look as 'natural' as it should.

Its pretty obvious by now that The Rock has lost atleast as much height as Hogan has (in this case 1 inch...) Late 90's / early 2000's Rock was only just over 1 inch shorter than the 6'5 Lennox Lewis, and he was pretty much the same height as Kama/Godfather and he edged out Bossman, also he had over 1 inch on Vader and almost 2 inches on Goldberg. I would go nothing less than 6'3 1/2 for a peak Dwayne, and almost a full 6'4 is more likely.

To the people who are saying that the Rock was shorter than Hulk Hogan, scroll down and look at the photo that was posted. The Rock is at least the same height as Hulk Hogan (if not taller). He was easily 6'3 1/4"-6'3 1/2" in his peak.

Shorter than a shrunken 6'3" Hulk Hogan in 2002. He was never 6'3" (even at his peak). 6'2" and change. How much change? Not sure.

Theres no evidence of height loss for Hogan as for 2002, so he could still be his peak of 6'4 and he also had footwear advantage against the Rock.

Found this one, D'lo is raising his eye level. Dwayne is behind and still looks an inch taller. So yeah not under 6'3" peak.

I think Ron was billed at 6'2" it seems he wasn't that far off with his actual height.
Johan said on 26/May/16
Ron was easily taller than Cena imo. He looked very similar to D'lo Brown in the Nation of Dom days and Rob met the guy and gave him 6'2" so Ron must have been around the same. I see more 1.5 inches between them so it does confirm a 6'3" Dwayne when younger. Plenty of vids on the tube where you can compare and yes he had sandals so no huge footwear there.

Then again D'Lo seems to slouch and so could appear a 6'1" guy so maybe Ron really is 6'1" range but anyway Dwayne had minimum 1.5 in on him so anything less than 6'2.5" for his peak is nonsense. Nowadays yes I think he is but guys saying 6'1" need to stop, its madness.

@Johan:

I really couldn't help smiling at the pics you posted. You are spot on, buddy. Dwayne's height is going to be an ever-puzzling mystery. And those pics with Cena seem to suggest he is struggling to even reach 6 foot 1.5 :)

I am quite surprise you also feel that he was 6 foot 3- 3.25 inches in his peak. I guess the height is the most feasible for Dwayne as he was standing 2 inches taller than a 6 foot 0.5-1.25 wrestler Farooq.
Here is the youtube link:
Click Here

Dwayne is wearing sandals (This is the closest proof we can get next to a barefoot shot).

Rob - I checked the site for the height of Ron Williams, I am not able to find his profile on the site. If you can find his site, we can close this debate as Dwayne seems to be comfortably 2 inches taller. If Ron Williams was 6 foot 1 as he claim, Dwayne was 6 foot 3 easily in his peak. If Ron was 6 0.25-0.75, then no way was Dwayne ever 6 foot 3 in his life.

Can you do us a favor and let the folks know?

@Johan: Please let us know what you think? I personally felt Ron was a tad taller than 6 foot 0.75 John Cena, if my observation is right, then Dwayne's peak height is comfortably proven to be 6 foot 3.

He's between 6'1.5-6'2 now (weak 6'2 is how he was described) from a reliable honest source who has met and stood right next to him. So maybe he's lost 3/4-1" over his lifetime

He looks 6'1.5-6'2 with 6'2 measured Shawne Merriman. Click Here I think hes really a flat 6'1 though.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 25/May/16
I know that this is uncommon, but John Cena is one of the few celebrities who rounds their height down instead of up (there's no way that he's just 6'0"). I bet that he would measure anywhere from 6'0 1/2"-6'1" for his absolute low (yes, 6'1" is possible). I don't know why he downplays his height so much. Therefore, the Rock is at least 190-191 CM today as that's what he appears by him.

@Johan:

I am not sure why you posted the links, but I assume it was a response to my statement indicating your usage of John Cena's height for a 6 foot 2 Rock today.

As I said earlier, I am not disagreeing with the fact that his height would have reduced to a 6 foot 2 or infact may be even a fraction lesser. So, let's just agree for now.

And FYI, it is not impossible for Cena to wear lifts for some ego boost. But eitherways, Dwayne has shrunk considerably. And i have no doubt about it.


Pics to show some evidence of his height loss yes. We can agree on that:)

I don't think he is as low as 6'2" though. My minimum for him is 6'2.25" but more likely he is 6'2.5". He does have 2 in on Cena and is still taller than Roman who i think is 6'1.5"-6'2".

6'3" maybe even 6'3.25" for his peak Im not too sure about that.

In reference to Cena he seems a modest guy. He claims to be "6 foot and 6"1" with cool shoes". He looks a good 6 foot most of the times so an honest guy.

@Danimal:
"Shorter than a shrunken 6'3" Hulk Hogan in 2002. He was never 6'3" (even at his peak). 6'2" and change. How much change? Not sure."

Really Danimal, how would you know? Have you measured him? or known any person who has measured him. From what I know, neither Rob nor I nor does anyone have any solid proof that he has 6 foot 3 or less/more during his peak. Infact, we cannot even say what his peak period his.

Please remember Wrestlers age very badly when compared to other people. A wrestler goes through 280+ days of work toiling day in and day out. They tend to burn out by they reach the age of 30. Therefore, it is also well concluded that their heights get impacted drastically as well. So there is a minor possibility that Dwayne was even a fraction over 6 foot 3.5 when he started wrestling (Not a strong possibility, but still a possibility nonetheless)



Don't believe me, google for wrestler deaths, height losses, and steroid abuse and you'll get all the proof you want.

My only request is "please don't pass statements such as "Dwayne was never under 6foot 3 / over 6 foot 4", we can all take a guess, have our own opinions, but we cannot simply state them as facts. Dwayne's height is still a mystery to all of us as he has always looked a strong 6 foot 3 during the 90s and a shade under 6 foot 2.5 in recent photos.
But having said that, it is impossible to conclude his real height. He may be even 6 0.5 or 6 foot 2.75 or 6 foot 3. Unless somebody measures him, there is no way we can confidently state his actual "peak" height.

Editor Rob: the 191 range is something I think early 90's he could pull off. 10 years of wrestling, and 20+ years of lifting big weights may have caught up with his spine and joints a bit.

There is no contradiction. You are just assuming that I was referring to pics in ring or backstage. Some of the best pics on this page have been when they both were in street clothes.
Dwayne had 2 inches on John and thats what started my belief that he was now sub 6'3".

That pic you posted doesn't look good to me at all, Dwayne has massive camera advantage for one. There are other pics of them running along the beach and the difference is still a solid inch. Also Dwayne still has shoes on.

Look for pics from the red carpet of Hercules. He is standing next to 5'9" Irina Shayk who has 3 in heels on and to me 6'2.5" is the max he could be.

@Dragon:
In the pic that you shared , we are not able to see the footwear or the platform that they are standing on. I feel Dwayne is standing on the floor while Kevin is standing on elevated platform.
Aswin Kini MK said on 22/May/16
@Johan: I agree with you. He stands at 6, 2.5" today due to heavy workouts and obviously his age is catching up with him.
However, I find some of your points very contradictory.
In you last comment, you said
"Like I said in another post you can't go off wrestling as many use lifts in the ring and out. Backstage they even use boards and boxes to alter height when cutting a promo so its pointless."

And yet, you use John Cena, a WWE wrestler, as an example to point that Dwayne is a sub-6, 2.5 inch guy????
"John Cena is actually one of the best examples for a sub 6'3" Dwayne. He only looks 2 in taller bringing him to 6'2.5" (189cm)
"

With regards to the David Hasselhoff comparison, I have already provided a picture where the cast including David and Dwayne standing in a straight angle. If you observe the picture carefully, you will notice that Dwayne is not much shorter than David (Granted David is slouching).

Eitherways, I perfectly agree with you that Dwayne might be 6 foot 2.5 inches today. He is quite a big guy and lifting weights day in and day out definitely would have reduced his height by an inch minimum. I wouldn't be surprised if he looks a sub-par 6 foot 2 in some years.

@Matthew Robinson: If you are indicating that Dwayne's current height is only 2 inches greater than Cena, I would agree. Hopefully, you are not understating his peak height,

@Mathew Robinson John Cena was 6'0 1/2"-6'0 3/4" in person, and he looks to be at least that mark by Tim Tebow:

Rob, i know you said he does have bad posture at times, so he can appear shorter... But do you honestly would bet your house on him being taller than a guy like Lance Reddick, if both measured standing at their tallest?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't bet a house, but the lowest I'd see rock today would be 189 range

6'1"-6'2" is insane. A 6'3" actor, like the Rock, with posture that's as wretched as his is and has similar proportions (long torso, average sized legs, short neck and long face) could easily appear to be 6'0"-6'1" in photos.

Peak: 6'3 1/4"
Today: 6'3" (I wouldn't be too surprised if he were to get measured at like 6'2 3/4", however).

---

Nah, that's too high for him. He stands loose sometimes but his posture isn't THAT bad. The guy is NOT 3" taller than John Cena, and never has been. 2", sure I can accept that, but never 3".

@Johan : I can show severe videos and photos here if you really wish to argue against my 6 foot 3 claim for a peak Rock aka Dwayne Johnson, but I guess you want to stick with your figure even if the videos and photos argue against it.
If yes, then let's reduce the height of Brock Lesnar to 6 foot or 5 foot 11.5 and hollywood Actors such as Samuel Jackson, Brendan Fraser, and HUgh Jackman to 6 foot 0 inches.
Buddy, I would love to agree with you, but the truth is I have been following him for too long and I have no problem with him being 6 foot 1.5 or 2 as long as it is true. Unfortunately, the photos and videos that I have seen shows so much proof of a 6 foot 2 plus Rock. He is taller than:
6 foot 1 inch Obama (by 1 or more inches)







Who is arguing he wasn't 6'3" PEAK ?

I said he looks 6'2.5" tops nowadays. He is in his 40's now and has lost height. Maybe your english isn't so good but I never said any of those things you claim.

Just so you know - I think he was 6 foot 3 peak as he looked it next to alot of actors and also Mamun.

Now the evidence points to 6'2.5". Like I said in another post you can't go off wrestling as many use lifts in the ring and out. Backstage they even use boards and boxes to alter height when cutting a promo so its pointless.
Johan said on 21/May/16
2 inches taller than 6'0.5" John Cena who some think is even his 6' claim. He certainly didnt look more than that next to 6'6" Ali baba from User heights.

Same height as confirmed 6'2.5" Brandon Routh.

At least a good inch shorter than confirmed 6'4" flat Hasselhoff while he had shoes. David was barefoot.

No noticeable height difference between him and CONFIRMED 6'2" David Haye.

Hmm maybe there are some other examples. Ah yes 2 inches shorter than Michael Strahan who admits to being sub 6'5". True Michael since solid 6'4" Alexander Skarsgard who gets a 6'4.25" listing seemed to edge him out.

Lets ignore all good evidence especially pics from verified users and even Rob but instead focus on in ring appearances. Its not like they wear 2 inch boots or anything or manipulate camera angles when doing back stage segments is it.

Now some will say but wait he was 2 inches taller than 6'2" Samuel L Jackson. Well to that I say next to Alexander Skarsgard, Samuel barely clears 6 foot. That is if we believe Alexander in his claim. Take a look at Samuel's page here he gets towered.

@Folks who said that Dwayne looks 2 inches shorter than David Hasselhoff. Here is a photo of the same Baywatch crew from a straighter angle and even ground. Granted that David is bending and Rock is wearing shoes,
but deduct 2 inches from the height and tell me if Rock still looks 2 inches shorter.
Click Here

Rob - request your opinion on this. People here seem to have difficulty understanding angles. I feel that photo of Dwayne and David running on the beach shows around a 3 inch difference because:
1) David is on the right and clearly standing on the higher slope of the beach (You can clearly see from the sand).
2) A "one to one point five inch difference" is exaggerated when the person stands on the right and in better angle of the camera.
3) Rock is bald (1 inch of hair difference), it does help he wore sneakers (Which add an 1.5 to 2 cms) and is standing on the lower end of the slope which shows him to be 2.5-3 inches shorter.

What do you say?
Editor Rob: beach angles always can be tricky, but it will be interesting to see whenever they appear at an event in the future on flat ground, that will give us a good idea how he compares.

@AroundParade: So, you want to downgrade Arnold Vosloo now? The same Arnold Vosloo who looked around the same height as a strong 6 foot 2 Brendan Fraser?? Surely, yeah buddy, Dwayne is really less than 6 foot 1 then. Makes Arnold Vosloo 6, Hugh Jackmen 6 and Bruce Willis at 5 foot 8. Sure, I agree with you.

Arch, i think saying he might be just 6'2.75 or a fraction under 6'3 today is a bit of an euphemism... There are many pictures with measured/honest people and people who Rob has met which make him look no more than 6'2! I think that anywhere in 6'2-6'2.5 range could be argued today and 6'2.5-6'3 maybe at his peak, considering i don't think he shrunk more than half an inch!
miko said on 19/May/16
In good posture he still looks around 6'3.
Arch Stanton said on 19/May/16
Rob, do you think 6'2.75 (190) might fit him better?
Editor Rob: it is likely he has lost a fraction, I think he still was a 6ft 3 guy peak, now it is arguable he can often look a bit under that mark.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 19/May/16
@Aswin Brock Lesnar is listed as 6'2" on here, and the Rock looks at least 4 CM taller. Brock Lesnar must be 187 CM then.

@GREsensai:
Buddy, look at this video of Brock Lesnar (Former UFC CHampion and Current WWE Wrestler, who is a clear 6 foot 1-1.5 inches) and see Dwayne Johnson. Go to time elapsed 00:10 and see when they both stand. Now, tell me, does Dwayne look shorter than Brock??? I see atleast a one inch difference of height between Dwayne and Brock which clearly points to Rock being a minimum 6 foot 2.5.
Click Here

Do you need more?
Aswin Kini MK said on 19/May/16
@GREsensai:
Can you show the pics where Rock is shorter than David Haye. Yes, Haye is no taller than 6 foot 1 as it was evident in his boxing match against the 6 foot 6 Wladmir Klitschko who towered almost 5 inches over him.

Please note that Dwayne generally stands in a slouching posture and as it is, does not wear 2 inch lifts like Haye. Regarding the picture with David Hasselhoff, it is true that Dwayne looked 2.5 inches shorter. But considering that David is not bald, it accounts for 1-1.5 inches of height difference. Also, the ground they are standing on seems slightly tilted. It is quite possible that David was standing on the higher end of the ground (Which is generally sloping upwards) which exaggerated the difference. There is nothing much to write about.

And with regards to Dwayne's height, I have provided clear evidence that he is taller than proven 6 foot 1.5-2 footers such as Arnold Vosloo, Brendan Fraser,Samuel Jackson, and of course wrestlers like Triple H (Real name: Paul Levesque).

His recent photo with 6 foot 1 inch Obama shows atleast a one inch difference, I am quite confident Dwayne is still a shade over or atleast 6 foot 2 today and was possibly 6 foot 3 or a shade more during his prime.

He didn't look any less than 3 inches over 5 foot 11 Bruce Willis in GI Joe: Retaliation.

While I wish to agree with you, I have been following Dwayne for quite sometime, and watched several videos and photos of him. I tried my best to see if I can find a below 6 foot 2 Dwayne and i couldn't.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
How can you guys argue 6ft1 range for this guy and keep a straight face?

The guy is at the very least pushing 6ft3 today with ease and may very well have cleared it in his 20's. He was over 1in taller than D'Lo Brown (6ft2 and Rob met him). 6ft2 flat is bogus for The Rock also.

Peak, he could be either 6'2.75 or 6'3 but definitely not over 6'3 flat or 190.5 cm.
Today, he can be anywhere from 6'1.75 - 6'2.25 but definitely not over 6'2.25 or 188.6 cm.

@Johan Actually, Rob met David Hasselhoff and listed him as 6'4" on the dot. You can't get a better reference than that.
Johan said on 17/May/16
Yes easily 6'3". And Hasselhoff is about 6'5". Reminds me of the comments on that instagram pic haha.

Lets remember - The Rock had shoes and was still a solid inch shorter than confirmed 6'4" Hasselhoff who might even be a fraction less.
James said on 16/May/16
I think the rock is six foot one or six foot two tops. I'm sure he wears lifts. In bay watch pic with hasselhoff he looks two inches shorter at least and David is barefoot where the rock is in very thin shoes. Hasselhoff is pretty well known as being six foot four.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 16/May/16
There's too much evidence that suggests that the Rock is 6'3". I even asked my friend how tall he felt he was, and he said easily 6'3". I take back what I said about 189 CM being the lowest as 190 CM is the absolute lowest that he can be.

The Rock isn't even standing up straight, and appears to be a minimum of 189 CM by him.



He can actually look no more than 4.5 inches taller there. So 6'2" tops but its not really a good pic for height. He is leaning and we don't see the footwear.

John Cena is actually one of the best examples for a sub 6'3" Dwayne. He only looks 2 in taller bringing him to 6'2.5" (189cm)

Someday soon Rob will bring him down to that, the evidence is building. Can't wait to see him in Baywatch barefoot ( if he dares) and compare.

A small loss is possible, like has been mentioned many times around 1/2 inch.

@seven2dub:

Buddy, a zillion pics showing that he was never more than a strong 6 foot 2???? I will give you just three or four pics that point out to a strong 6 foot 3:
Dwayne Johnson with 6 foot 2.5 - 6 foot 3, Brendan Fraser (Height quoted on Celeb Heights) - Here is the article for Brendan's height (Click Here)

Dwayne Johnson with 6 foot 2 Arnold Vosloo (Again height of Arnold V was quoted on Celeb Heights)
Click Here

Dwayne Johnson with the now 5 foot 10 Arnold Schwarzennegger (Note that Dwayne is leaning and still 3-4 inches taller than Arnold - a strong 6 foot 2- 2.5)
Click Here

Dwayne Johnson during his wrestling days with 6foot 1.5 Brock Lesnar (Click Here)

Dwayne Johnson with a legit 6 0.5- 1 inch Cena (He looks no less than a strong 6 foot 2 and this was just some years back)
Click Here

People, I am ok with downgrading heights of celebrities, but just downgrading for the sake of it is too much. Request you to NOT pass blank statements like "Oh Dwayne was never 6 foot 2 in his whole life", "Dwayne is 6 foot 1 max today", or "Dwayne wears lifts in his shoes" is a bit too much.

It is clearly evident that Dwayne is a strong 6 foot 2 even today. His recent pics prove it. Whether he was 6 foot 4 or not, we never know (As a great fan, even I am doubtful of the 6 foot 4 claim as he never looked like a legit 6 foot 4 to me, especially when he stands near Adam Copeland or Randy Orton or even Hulk Hogan for that matter).

However, when we look from a neutral perspective, it will be very evident that he was perhaps a strong 6 foot 3 in his peak. His wrestling career pics and backstage pics with MArk Calaway, Steve Austin, Bill Goldberg, and Hulk Hogan point to a 6 foot 3 individual in his peak.

Irrespective of his height, I feel he has become a great star and still looks like a giant when compared to his co-stars who are as tall as him. While I agree that you have your own opinions, please do NOT state them as facts. If you have photos that prove Dwayne was only 6 foot 2 in his peak. Please post the links here and let us be the judge. Kindly do not pass blank statements and disagree with pics that clearly contradict your claims.
BorkLaser said on 8/May/16
He isn't 6'1" or 6'2". He's still 6'3" as Aswin demonstrated. He's bald which could give people with hair an advantage when taking pictures with him, and his weight probably accounts for significant height loss throughout the day. But still he's quite tall and is still 6'3" today.

Not really. Arnold Vosloo is listed at 6'1.75 here, yet he looks closer to 6'1 in the more pics you see of him. Puts Rock at 6'2 peak.
Junior31 said on 8/May/16
Strong 6'2 Really don't care much about photos in terms of his height because they have been sporadic and not seeing feet or footwear. Wwe would never be able to get away with billing a guy 6'5 if he was 6'1. With good posture he's close to 6'3

Agreed ½in max. And that could from 6ft3½ down to 6ft3 flat or 6ft3¼ down to 6ft2¾. He still looks about 6ft3 when he stands tall, 6ft2-ish with a hunch maybe.

I'd argue a strong 6ft3 for The Rock in that picture w/h Will Smith,taking into account that he's slouching and has no hair.

At worst maybe 6ft2¾ after a long day but the 6ft3 listing is fine.

I reckon Rocks height has always been around 6'2.5 possibly even more... Just an estimate from a big Rock fan. He is always being described as being 6'4 which is not true
