I just watched a documentary on Randy Savage where DDP claimed Savage was under 6'. I think Savage was more like 5'11". He was shorter than 6' tops Bret Hart in the early 90s. Keep in mind that Savage almost always wore cowboy boots. He was probably 6'1" in cowboy boots and 5'11" barefoot.

Bret was clearly taller and he was 6' at best. Savage could not have been more than 5'11" in that clip and honestly he looked shorter than that.

Rob, how tall do you think Randy "Macho Man" Savage was?

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



Imo Savage wasn´t more than a solid 6´0"-6´0.5" peak, he looked about 1.5" taller than ~ 5´10.5-5´11"flat British Bulldog in 1992

He was billed 6ft2. I think he could look all over the place especially in his matches with Hogan. Hard guy to pin down.

On the back of his Cincinnati Reds baseball card it has him at 6'1" and 195 lbs if I was seeing it correctly

Jickbrockly said on 18/Jul/17
What did they bill him as? 6'7,6'8?
It's wrestling. Take two or 3 inches off that and that was his peak height.

He is old and his knees and hips are ****ed. So take a couple inches off that and that's how tall he is now.
RONSTER said on 15/Jul/17
Great feedback everyone. What I can tell you from meeting him was that he gets a lot taller when he gets ready to move/walk as he then shifts in to his good side and briefly straightens his knees out. Something we have to keep in mind is that he is bald and I have thick curly hair, so there is another 1/2 inch at least. I agree he stands at just over 6'3" a lot of the time with his knees bent and hunching down, but he is still 6'4" or better if he stood tall. I think it just is uncomfortable for him given both his knees and hips were replaced. Also, he was for sure 3" taller in the 80's when I saw him up close with Andre.
62B. said on 15/Jul/17
@****sock and @canson: At just under 6'3" I am almost always the tallest person in any room at any given time. At the same time I do come across people randomly that are as tall or taller all the time. What I do find odd is how many people claim their height in shoes. A few guys at my work (that I had all pegged at 5'11" to maybe 6') had their physicals the other day. When I asked them how tall they were all three claimed 6'1". Now I know I am at least 3" taller than these guys, so I said "no way, maybe in your boots". To which they all said yes, they were in their works boots. If I were measured in my work boots I would be 6'4" all day long :)

@Dicksock: legit 6'3 guys are actually very tall. I am 6'4 and a little bit and still say they are very tall or that's 190+ at your lowest. But 6'6" is nearing the extreme category which essentially is 2M.

________________

Maybe people are just taller in the part of the world I live in? I'm about 5'10" out of bed and it seems like most guys are taller than me. Even lots of girls/women I see are 5'7"-5'10". Anytime I go a bar, grocery store, sporting event, restaurant, etc, I see several guys that are at least 6'3". For example, I just went a baseball game and there were dozens of guys that I walked past who were 6'3" or taller. I'm telling you for a fact that 6'3" is not that tall where I live. A guy's height doesn't stand out to me unless he's at least 6'4"-6'6". I think people start getting into "giant" territory when they are 6'9" or above. I've seen maybe a dozen guys in my life who were 6'9"-7" and only one who was maybe 7'2" or something. One of my friends in college was a legit 6'9" basketball player and I saw him almost everyday. One of my best friends was a tad over 6'4" (seen him measured personally) so I know exactly what I'm talking about. 6'3" is tall, but not what I would consider very tall.

Here is the other picture taken the same day. Both were taken in the afternoon so not at his tallest. Notice that in the first one I came up to his eyes and now I'm at the bottom of his nose. Also, he was still not standing straight and had his knees bent quite a bit. My arms are a bit over 17", his dwarf mine so they are still well over 20" in his 60's.

____________________

This picture is much better. He is about 7" taller than you in the afternoon. I thought he may have been 8" taller if he stood straight, but he is about 7" taller. So if you're 5'8"/5'8.25", Hogan is about 6'3.25" in your second pic. You're not up to his eyes in the first pic either. The very top of your head is at the bottom of his nose. He looks taller next to you in the first pic than the second. I will be a little generous and guess his height as 6'3.5" and his weight as 270 lbs. He's definitely not over 6'4" 295 lbs next to you. Sorry, but he's not.

Is it possible to lose 3 inches in height? Danm
Canson said on 14/Jul/17
@John B: I believe he was every bit of full 6'5" peak. The most would be a guy waking up 6'6" out of bed and 6'5.25 at his lowest. But I'd go with classic 6'5". But That's more than enough for 6'7" in boots (morning very easy and at his lowest still close to it).

Thanks for your pics, great stuff
What´s your exact height from getting out of bed to late evening?
If I put you at 5´8", I can see a maximum of 6´3.5", is he really able today to stretch his knees out??

btw I know people still training judo after hip replacement and near age 70, no noticable heightloss.
I believe his heightloss comes from his back and not being able to stretch his legs like a healthy man.

2" maximum heightloss, wich is far more than usual.

--------------------------
Looks about the same as how 5'8" guys come up to me and I'm just under 6'3" barefoot, but you say his knees are bent, so he is probably still the full 6'3".
John B said on 14/Jul/17
If RonSter is 5'8 barefoot, he is 5'9 with foot ware on standing next with Hulk - making Hogan legit 6'3 - but as you can see Hogan's knees are bent also leaning a little, so 6'4 is not really out of the question. Go back to the Mid 80's Hogan was clearly a 6'5 maybe 6'6 ? guy, way before hip / knee replacements and a ton of back surgerys plus age... his clams for been 6'7 at one time in his life was not really that far off...

Ronster: Good pic. I would say he looks about 7" taller than you, maybe 8" if he stood to his full height. Taking his posture into consideration, I'd say he's losing about an inch. Assuming you are really 5'8" (not trying to call you a liar), Hogan looks about 6'3" with bad posture and 6'4" if he stood perfectly straight. What time of day was the picture taken in?

As far as his weight goes, it's hard to pinpoint it based on that picture. If I had to guess, I'd say he looks no less than 260 lbs. I honestly doubt he was 295 lbs in that pic. I'll say between 270 and 280.
Alan32080 said on 12/Jul/17
@Ronster he looks a shade over 6'3" in that pick barefoot if you both have same shoes. My nephew is 13 and 5'8" bare feet and 5'9" with shoes. I look exactly the same with him as you do with Hogan in pictures. I'm 6'3" and in shoes depending on which ones hit 6'4" to 6'4 1/4".
RP said on 11/Jul/17
JT, one thing to note on the peak Hogan & Barkeky comparison is this...those pics are about 15 years apart ...1981/1982 vs 1996 I do believe? Can we just assume that Mean Gene lost zero height over those 15 years?? Not even 1/2" an inch?? But, I agree ...peak Hogan 6'5.5" barefoot ...6'5.75" Max! And 6'5" flat by the early 1990's.
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@RP: Danny Ainge tho 6'4" barefoot (6'5" with shoes). Remember I read when Barkley claimed 6'6" once in Phoenix at a press conference he said im 6'4" and you're maybe 1/2" taller than me.
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@JT: agree on Hogan 6'5-6'5.25 tops. May have woke up to 6'6" or at worst 6'5.75 and been between the two at the end of the day in the low 196 range.barkley tho was never 6'6". People I know that have met him say he's my size I myself am 6'4 3/8. Of the three I know one has met him twice and is 6'3" and said Barkley is precisely an inch and a half while the others have all said 6'4/6'5 and measured 6'4 5/8 at the olympics. Reggie Miller is taller than Barkley very clearly on TNT in studio and when they were at the Mayweather Pacquiao fight and he's admitted to being 6'5-6'6 himself (he's also shorter than jalen Rose).
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@RP: agreed on most!! Barkley is taller than ainge. Ainge however said Barkley was about 1/2" taller. And rMajerle said recently Charles is "maybe 6'5" "probably 6'4". Def not a solid 6'4 but I buy the 6'4 5/8 (weak 6'5) he measured at the olympics as a walking height in the afternoon. Chambers too I definitely agree on I'd have said 6'9" solid easy but he's very well proportioned too. But I never noticed the difference with Miller. Didn't see a lot of them together but I've seen Chambers next to Xavier McDaniel and X admitted to being closer to 6'6". Chambers looked a good amount taller than he was in pics. Looked a very good 3" or so. X ar most 1.5" over Jordan who I always viewed the way Pat Riley described 6'4.5 barefoot (also know several people who've met MJ and said we're pretty much the same height people close in height with me too).
David Banner said on 11/Jul/17
@Ronster - that is a great pic. I respect you 100% for posting it. Very cool. Knowing your height and based on that pic alone, I'd guess his height at 6'2"-6'2.5" and about 265lbs. Just my opinion. I look very much forward to the other pic where you said he's standing a bit straighter!

Guys, is there ANY way possible that Hulk was 6'4" peak and 6'2" now (barefoot)?
Seems like the majority of people on this forum guess 6'5"-6'6" peak and 6'3"-6'4" now.
It's just so strange because he stacks up shorter looking a lot of the time. I mean 6'5"-6'6" is VERY tall.

_________________

It's not that tall. I see people all the time that are 6'3"-6'5". Once you start getting to 6'6" and above, that is very tall. Hogan had the exact frame of a big 6'5" guy in his prime. Plus, the 6'6" ring announcer from WM II said Hogan was 6'5"-6'6", 6'5" Tiny Lister said Hogan was 6'5", Steve Austin said he was 6'5"-6'6", Eric Bischoff referred to him as 6'6". I think 6'5"/6'5.5" is fair for his prime and 6'3"/6'3.5" is accurate now. He looks maybe 1.5"-2" shorter now than in his prime.
JT said on 10/Jul/17
62B said on 7/Jul/17
So JT. What is your official peak Hulk Hogan height guess?

No more than 6'5". In cowboy boots Hogan was shorter next to Mean Gene than Charles Barkley in regular shoes was (around 6'6" but downplays his height) Click Here so it's hard to argue anything taller than that for Hogan.
RP said on 10/Jul/17
Canson...most likely.
Just looked at some old Phoenix Suns team pictures. Tom was 0.5" to 0.75" taller than 6'9" listed Oliver Miller. And on film he looked 4" to 4.5" taller than Barkley. Also, Barkeky looked a full 1" taller than 6'5" listed Danny Ainge.
RONSTER said on 10/Jul/17
Here is the picture of myself and Hulk. For reference, I stood as straight and tall as I could, I'm a bit over 5'8" barefoot and our footwear was exactly the same. He was leaning in, and you cannot see it but his knees were bent dropping his height by at least 2 inches. His head also is massive, I have a large size head. As for weight, I am 202lbs, look how tiny I look next to him for those who think he might be less than the 295lbs he says he is, no chance he is anything under 290. I want to see what people say, then I'll post another from the same day with him standing straighter. To me he was easily still over 6'4" barefoot.

When you see someone that tall in public it's very noticeable.
I really need to meet him in person. Because like it or not, my observations are only opinions until then.
It would be really cool if people who have met him would start posting pics for everyone to check out.

Hulk in cowboy boots didn't look close in height to Magic Johnson, who was probably strong 6’7” and add another inch for his loafers.


_______________

Not close? Magic looked like 1.5" taller max. He was a solid 6'7"/6'7.5" barefoot and probably 6'8"/6'8.25" in his shoes. Hogan was 6'5"/6'5.5" barefoot and probably at least 6'6.5" in those cowboy boots.
RP said on 4/Jul/17
JT ..Magic 6'8.5" to 6'8.75" in dress shoes is a pretty accurate guess. Hogan 6'7.25" to 6'7.5" in cowboy boots in the early to mid 80's !? Possibly ? I'm sure still shots of video of Ed McMahon, Magic & Hogan can be posted to compare. This was once done with still shots from The Arsenio Hall Show from '89-'90...and At that time Magic in 1" footwear looked at least 1" to 1.25" taller than Hogan in 1.75" footwear.

Finally a guy we kind of agree on. I saw Hogan up close in 1980. He was only marginally taller than my slightly over 6'4" Grandfather. 6'5" to maybe 6'5.5" for a peak Hogan is my guess. Today 6'3" looks about right.

I think peak he was 6'6" out of bed hell he even could have been 6'6.5" in the a.m. Who knows but as for now he's holding a super strong 6'3.5 - 6'4" all day.
Ebrahim said on 1/Jul/17
When I hear people say he was 6'6" I used to tell them to GTFO but, I watched old matches with him and Sid vicious and Scott Hall, and he looks to be of similar height, even taller than Hall. I just can't wrap my head around how much height he lost, I have 2 herniated discs and a spinal misallignment and how much height did I lose? 5/8" max? He appeared to be around 6'6" back then, but I wouldn't rule out he was wearing lifts.

Hulk Undertaker Staredown from 2002. Taker looks more than 3 but less than 4" taller.

________________

That should absolute proof of Hogan's height loss. In 1991, Taker was maybe 1.5" taller. I will say in the clip from 2002, Taker had a footwear advantage. He looked about 4" taller, but if you take away the footwear advantage he was about 3" taller; maybe a tad more. This clip shows me that Hogan has not lost any significant height since 2002. He looked roughly the same height in 2013 with Brock that he did with Taker in 2002. He was maybe 6'3.5"-6'4" in 2002. He's still 6'3"-6'3.5" from what I can tell. He was probably 6'5.5" at his tallest. Footwear may have played a factor in him looking taller in his prime though.
Canson said on 1/Jul/17
@Dicksock: maybe about the interview but my point was a peak Hogan I'd put maybe 6'5" maybe a strong 6'5" tops. I don't think it was lister but can't remember. Maybe it was I was essentially saying he wasn't 6'7" or 6'6

@Canson I'm 6'3" and he was taller than me. 6'3.5" at the lowest but 6'4" is my opinion from up close and sizing him up to another guy who is 6'5".

@Ronster: that is not completely true. A few people here have in fact met the guy and say he's 6'3" today. Now peak is another story he was a surfeit 6'5" and 6'7" in boots as another wrestler who was the same height also described him at his peak.

_____________

You've got that slightly wrong. I'm assuming you're referring to the Tiny Lister interview. He said Hogan was 6'5" barefoot and that he (Tiny) was given boots that made him 6'7". Lister claimed he was 6'7" in those boots to make him taller than Hogan. So Hogan was not 6'7" even in wrestling boots. He did only look very slightly shorter than Lister in the WWF. But in the movie, he was about an inch or so shorter.

Hogan with a 1" footwear advantage looks 4" to 4.5" taller than Ed McMahon. Which would make him 3" to 3.5" taller if both men are barefoot. The question is, how tall was a 60 year old Ed McMahon? I've always heard that he was a legit 6'3" in his prime?? But, probably more like 6'2" at age 59-60.
59 year old Ed McMahon: 6'2"
29 year old Hulk Hogan: 6'5.5"
IMO
anonymous1 said on 28/Jun/17
...I'm sure this has been covered, but I just re-saw Hogan on a 1982 Tonight Show with Carson. First of all, the guy was a monster, back in the day. He may have had heels, but he was clearly bigger and taller than Ed McMahon, who was what, 6'3 or 6'4, and not skinny. Next to Johnny, Hogan was like a different species of man, size-wise.
David Banner said on 28/Jun/17
@Ronster - I never claimed to have met him. I know 2 different people that have on different occasions and they both guessed around 6'2". I don't know for sure how tall he is as I never have had the pleasure of seeing him in person. Looking forward to the pic
RONSTER said on 28/Jun/17
David Banner, as soon as you say he's nothing over 6'2" now claiming you've met him proves you are lying or just cannot judge height at all. It seems the only people who say he is anything under 6'4" today and between 6'6-6'7" peak are the same people who've been doing it for years and have never met him. The main reasons most people get his height wrong is because one they don't take into account his horrible posture and bent knees, and second is his huge head, someone who is 6'3" says he was no taller than me we were eye to eye, but his head is 2" taller than yours! Really not that complicated it hard to see. I will post a picture I have with him again soon to prove my point.
The Ben said on 27/Jun/17
Just looking through old Hogan pics, you can see on all front bicep shots that his hips kick out to the left, looks like postural issues from as far back as 86.
Anonymous1 said on 26/Jun/17
..just watched a Youtube clip of Hogan, and he states that when he first started out, his mom measured him barefoot, at 6'7. Then he went on to say that 30 years of leg drops and all else (curved spine, hip, knee, back surgeries included) brought him to 6'4. It's quite possible that he was down to 6'4 in the late 90's, just based on a curved spine from countless leg drops, and compression of it. I can see someone inflating the truth about what they are now. But why inflate the truth of something he even admits was 3 or more decades ago, and is not something he admits he's close to, now. I believe him (on the 6'7 part). Others can, and will, disagree.

@Dicksock - Lesnar looks at least same height as Hogan on that footage when they are face to face.

________________

You're wrong. Look at the top of their heads and line them up. It's clear Hogan was taller, and Lesnar was tip toeing around trying to look taller. Hogan was about an inch taller and had worse posture. Also, I never said he was much over 6'3". I said about 6'3.5" by the evening. He is for sure at least 6'3" though. He may still measure 6'4" or a tad over out of bed. The average man loses .6" from morning till night.
Bazza said on 23/Jun/17
@Dicksock - Lesnar looks at least same height as Hogan on that footage when they are face to face. Still don't see anything much over 6'3, if at all and that's being generous allowing for Hogan's bad posture.

I have met hulk hogan and he is 6 foot 4 legit barefoot
miko said on 22/Jun/17
I agree ****sock, Hogan has lost just under 2 inches from his prime of just over 6'5. He's above 6'3 today in good posture but by how much is debatable.

Some on here believe he'd already lost 2 inches by the early 90's!
dicksock said on 22/Jun/17
Here is Hogan from 2013 with legit 6'5" Joseph Park/Abyss: Click Here

He looks at least 6'3.5" to me.

Here he is with 6'2" Brock Lesnar in 2014: Click Here

Both guys were in sneakers and Lesnar was even tip toeing to try to look taller. Once again Hogan looked 6'3.5".
My guess is that he is legit 6'4" or a tad more out of bed and is about 6'3.5" by the evening. He was probably 6'6" out of bed at his tallest and 6'5/6'5.5" evening. So he's lost a good 1.5-2".
Alan32080 said on 21/Jun/17
@ David Banner well I met him within the past year and I'm 6'3" dead flat and I know this because my job requires us to take physical and mental exams every 90 days and they measure us barefoot in a hospital gown.
He was taller than me by 1/2" minimum and the impression I got was 1".
Another guy on our SWAT Team is 6'5" and Hogan was from perception only a tad shorter not to visible so 6'2" is not even a option. We asked him his height and he said a little over 6'4" and maybe in shoes he's pretty close to 6'5"
Canson said on 21/Jun/17
@David Banner: 6'2" seems a bit Low for him even today but I can buy maybe an inch higher and 6'5-6'5.25 peak as he did admit to being 6'5" before and another wrestler once said he is the same height as him at 6'5". He wore boots a lot when he was at his peak so a 6'5" and change guy ESP if that's his lowest height would easily be 6'6.5-6'7 looking in cowboy boots
David Banner said on 21/Jun/17
@Ronster - still a hole of an opinion dude. Show pics. Also, he was clearly never 6'6.5"-6'7" barefoot. So your opinion hole got even deeper once you said that. I know two people that have met him on different occassions in the past 2 years and both said he is nothing over 6'2" now.
RONSTER said on 20/Jun/17
Opinions are like but holes, everyone has one lol. However, when it comes to something like this only people who have met and stood next to Hogan can give one that matters, photos are useless and mean nothing. I can look a half foot taller or shorter in pictures as can anyone. I for that matter have met and stood with Hogan both when he was in his early 30's and just two years ago post back surgery. The man lost a lot of height from his youth, and most of these photos that show him shorter are due to bent knees and poor posture. I can say for sure he was at least 6'6.5"-6'7" barefoot the first time and was still at least 6'4" barefoot the last time. He had identical type runners to mine but was standing with his knees bent a lot and leaning to one side and still was 6'4" next to me in shoes, so that meant he was barefoot over 6'4" easily. And he also has maintained most of his upper body size aside from his arms being a few inches smaller (still over 20" though at 63!), so he easily tops the scales at 290-300lbs. His legs are smaller now yes but they are still big as well.
Canson said on 19/Jun/17
Yea I agree Christian he isn't less than 6'5 peak maybe even your height or near it.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Jun/17
@Logan

Anything under 6'5" is low for Hogan, if you're talking about his peak height. I thought 6'5.25" or somewhere around that.
Logan said on 17/Jun/17
He is 6,5 maybe 6,4.75 he is about 1 inch or so taller than orton which is about 6,4 so I will stick with 6,4.5-6,5

@Guanzo you must be joking with that comment. Your off on both. He's not shorter than me and just met him within the past year. Pretty damn close if not dead on 6'4" Now. His frame is of a larger man so 6'6" prime maybe 6'5.5" evening. Opinions are great if you have been around and seen the person you are giving the opinion on.
Guanzo said on 14/Jun/17
Peak Physical Prime:
Barefoot: 6'4.5" to 6'4.75"
Wrestling boots: 6'5.75" to 6'6"
Cowboy Boots: 6'6.25" to 6'6.5"-ish

Today:
Barefoot: 6'2.25" to 6'2.5"(max)
Sneakers:6'3.25" to 6'3.5"-ish

Fixed.
James said on 13/Jun/17
Hogan was at Least 6'5 during his peak since he was at the same height as John Tenta and Tiny "Zeus" Lister. Give or take 0.25 Inches. Remember Hogan was billed as low as 6'6. He was mentioned as 6'5 - 6'6. Sid justice Always had a Good 2 inch on Hogan.

Peak 6'5
Wrestling boots 6'6 - 6'6.25
Cowboy boots 6'7

Of course Hogan wan't break kayfabe. He Will always claim 6'7 peak.

Interestingly Hogan has just put a photo on his Instagram today saying he'll get under 300lbs this weekend.
He's not saying he's all muscle he's saying he's overweight. I still say a strong 6'3 today.

David Banner said on 7/Jun/17
Hulk is no more than 6'2" now
Also, Hogan was never over 6'4"
Andre was never over 6'9"
Studd was never over 6'5"
Why is it so hard for people to comprehend that they wore lifts and played on the camera angles and stood on boxes and stood next to short refs and interviewers?
________________________________________________________________________-

Its doubtful Andre was wearing lifts when I bumped into him at the air port, He was huge and looked 7' but was probably somewhere between 6'10" and 6'11". Hogan in 1980 pre WWF and probably not wearing lifts was slightly taller than my Grandfather when we saw him, who at the time was a little over 6'4" and normally wore shoes with a heel. Peak Andre was probably very close to 7' and a peak Hogan was 6'5" to 6'5 1/2".
The Ben said on 8/Jun/17
Another thing I would say is when I was stood near Hogan I would have said 6'3 tops due to his bizarre body proportions and obviously shrunken legs, hips and lower back.
It was only when I saw my photo of Hulk and I and my friends photo of them together that I could see the full height difference.
Hogan has a huge and this I believe makes him appears shorter.
He's still a very big guy.
The Ben said on 8/Jun/17
Meeting him 2 years ago I would have said a strong 6'3, touching 6'4.
I think he's only lost 1.5"-2.0" max.
I'd say 6'5.5 peak.
I've met lots of wrestlers over the years and Hulk was still an enormous man.
I met him with a friend who's 6'2, fat and 310lbs. Even though my friend was fatter you could see Hogan had a far larger frame. He was a very big thick guy, the type of size you very rarely see, somebody who would definitely make you take a second look.
His hips and legs looked very crooked and you could see he had no ass. His upper body and arms were huge, giant hands and head.

There are lots of wrestlers I've met who were smaller than I expected (Steiner, Shamrock, Piper, Flair) but there are also some bigger. I can easily see a peak Hulk between 290 and 320.

They don't always put wrestlers weights up, I know taker was billed at 328 in the ministry of darkness days, at one point with eating and drinking on the road he hit 350 and tried to cover up with a baggy shirt.
There was an interview with Shaq talking about it.
Taker was basically fat.
Austin openly struggles with weight has been up to 280 in recent years, Ted Dibiase also openly talks about weight problems and hitting 330lbs.

Hmmmm? Vegas?...I need to see pics of that action figure for confirmation? Chances are it says 6'7" & 302 lbs & not 6'2" & 302 lbs...otherwise that 6'2" is a major typo. I've never, ever seen a listing lower than a 6'5" billing or claim for Hogan from his physical prime. Almost all wrestling merchandise has or had him at 6'7" & 302 lbs from that era. With a few 6'8" listings ...maybe a random fluke 6'6" listing once in a blue moon...and almost all weight billings being 302, 303 or 305. With a random few going up to 320 to 325 & a random few going as low as 294 & 295.

Hulk seems to have gotten the 6'7" peak and 6'4.5" recent from his mother measuring him, but he never says she had them take their shoes off.

_____________

In the interview with "The Voice", I'm about 99% sure he said he would be interviewed barefoot. I can't find the interview anymore, but I'm almost positive that's what he said.
Edge said on 20/May/17
An easy 6'5 back in the 70s and 80s and more likely 6'3 today.

Hulk seems to have gotten the 6'7" peak and 6'4.5" recent from his mother measuring him, but he never says she had them take their shoes off. Btw, Hulk's mother died when he was 57. 6'4.5" would have to be in shoes since he's been shorter than Troy Aikman and David Hasselhoff for a while and I still say 6'5.5" peak so 6'7" or within would be easy in a lot of footwear, or I'm almost any footwear early in the day. Seems most of his height loss came from surgeries.

Canson, I thought you were a bit over 6'4"??
Bazza said on 18/May/17
@****sock - your stats make sense. i have watched some WWF footage from circa 1990 recently and i can see 6'5 flat around that time but no more. i think early 80s he may have hit 6'5.5 and that was his peak height. He walks around about strong 6'2 with his bad posture these days but i could buy him being around a strong 6'3 when standing up straight today.
Alan32080 said on 18/May/17
@Ryan11 possibly weighs 270 - 280 high end.
RYAN11 said on 17/May/17
To Arby and Canson, one if he wS eye level with you he was at least an inch taller because I seriously doubt your head is nearly as large as his, and to the other, was he standing straight and tall like I'm sure you were? I bet anything he was bent knees and slouching like always.
Canson said on 17/May/17
Alan32080: he for sure isn't 6'4" or 6'5". We were eye level. I'm between 6'3-6'3.25 so maybe he's 6'3.25-.5 that's the most he is
RYAN11 said on 16/May/17
Alan32080, I also met him a couple years ago post back surgery and he was easily 6'4" barefoot. How much would you estimate he weighs? Muscle weighs a lot more than fat and he is still really built especially upper body wise so I estimate him around 280-290lbs still
Alan32080 said on 14/May/17
@Arby I only met him once but we both had flops on and I'm 6'3" on the nose and he was taller. Not like inches but visibly taller. One of the swat guys is 6'5" and Hogan was pretty close to him obviously my guy was taller but not by much maybe 1.5" max but more like a inch. This was around 8:30 to 9:00 in the morning at a private shooting range in Tampa where swat and national guard shoot as well as some private members.
Bazza said on 13/May/17
peak 80's max - 6'5

today - 6'2.5 / 6'3 tops.
Arby said on 13/May/17
Alan32080: I'm actually a hair over 6'3. I haven't been measured in a while but I've always been between 6'3-6'3.25. I've met Hogan more than once and he looked me dead in the eye with similar footwear.
straightahead said on 12/May/17
Haha what a load of crap! a legit 310 lbs Hogan would had been billed to 350 to say atleast, most likely much more, but he was billed 297-303 when he was at his bulkiest (late 80's / early 90's) which tells us that he was never more than 270-275 in wwf.

in wcw nwo days he was nothing more than approx 240
day day said on 12/May/17
I was a wrestling talent scout for 9 years 83-92 in the us canada and japan i had a breif stint in wwf in 1989 wrestlers are measured in their wrestlig attire and boots then given an extra inch i seen hogan on 2 ocassions my estamation for hulk barefoot would be shy of 6'6 300lbs i was 6'4 272lbs back then id say hes 6'3.5 250lbs today
Alan32080 said on 11/May/17
@Arby I am also 6'3" barefoot flat and I have good posture and he was taller than me. The lowest he could be is 6'3.5" and probably wakes up at 6'4" which is what I thought when I met him which was around 9 a.m. maybe a little earlier.
Junior31 said on 11/May/17
Easily 300lbs plus at peak. While in the WWF he was every bit of 310. When he got to wcw and laid off the steroids a bit went down to about 270-275.
Mayfield said on 11/May/17
That 6'4.5 listing he claims nowadays could be a listing in shoes, ergo 6'3 1/2 or at least a bit below it
Arby said on 10/May/17
He and I are the same height 6'3. I've met him
dicksock said on 8/May/17
Here is an interesting clip of Stone Cold answering a fan's question on whether he suffered any of the same back problems from doing the stunner night after night that Hogan did from doing his leg drop:
Click Here

He claims that Hogan was...and this is truly shocking...6'5-6'6 and 300-320lbs. This is what I have been saying for many years. This is also consistent with what the 6'6" ring announcer said and with what 6'5" 300lb Tiny Lister said. Hogan was about 6'5.5" and at least 300lbs at his biggest. Now, he is still around 6'3/6'3.5" and maybe 260lbs.

Cool you got to meet Hulk and get a picture with him, but its not really that good of a picture to guess his height. You appear to be standing straight, while Hogan is obviously leaning forward with his head tilted down. Then we can't tell if he is, what seems to be normal, bending at the knees, or the shoes he is wearing. If I had to guess off of that picture. I'd say standing straight with same footwear and you being 5'8" that Hulk would indeed be around 6'3" Today. What is your guess?

@straightahead no disrespect but are you trying to be a comedian with your comments? Or have you never met Hogan and just use assumptions? I can tell you right now for a 100% fact he's not under 6'3.5" right now and I would venture to say still hits 6'4".

184guy said on 21/Apr/17
The problem guessing Hogan's height is that he looked barely 6'5 with the shorter guys like Mean Gene,Piper,Randy but with another very tall guys he looked very near the 6'6 listing. I personally would go with 6'5.75 MAX since he looked a tad shorter than John Tenta,who was measured at 6'5.75 but could have been the full 6'6.
-----

Theres no way that Tenta was 6'5 3/4 since he had no way near 3 inches on 6'3 Ottman, Tenta was a weak 6'5 at very best and even that is pushing it... and that puts Hogan to around 6'4 peak.
aaronious said on 26/Apr/17
Vegas, what was their footwear like at Hogan's shop? maybe your friend is taller than 6'4". some people like to underplay their height, others overplay it. if Hogan wakes up in the morning, 6'3.5"- 6'4" is certainly possible and within reason

example: my father told people for years he was 6'4". his actual height barefoot: 6'4 5/8" ... he preferred to round down instead of up
aaronious said on 26/Apr/17
Tito, that is about right, hes around 6'3" these days, and weighs aout 250-260

I am 6'5" and 265 lbs and I dwarf hulk Hogan. I live 1 mile from him. I been around him many times and I have 2" on him and I seem heavier with muscle mass. Terry is really 6'3" and probably 250 lbs.
Johan said on 22/Apr/17
Some really good listings there Sean but I disagree strongly with a couple of them.

Shawn Michaels at 5'11.5" ? He lived in cowboyboots and now he finally conceded himself that he is 5'10". He was also described in the past as 5'10", I think he was max 5'11" at peak but I lean more towards 5'10.5".

Davy Boy Smith is the same looked mostly 5'10.5"-5'11" tops.

The most interesting thing I see in here is the total ignorance about Hogans posture. In every picture he stands with his surgically replaced knees bent a lot and usually is leaning to one side because of his replaced hips and surgically repaired back! He is easily over 6'4" today but is always standing in a way that drops him 2-3 inches. He rarely ever stood straight up anyway, but when he did you see how he was well over 6'7" in his younger days barefoot, heck he was within 4-5 inches of the by the time due to excessive weight 7 foot Andre at WM3.

Oh please hogan was billed 6'8 because he measured 6'7 in his wrestling boots so he may have been 6'5.5-6" prime thats how it works period! andre was billed 7'4 because with his 2" afro and in his wrestling boots he measured 7'3 so in his prime he would have been about 7ft or 7'0.5" guys who wrestled barefoot like kamala haku yoko would get a 3" boost as i said before they get measured in their wrestling gear then given a extra inch, in some cases like kane they might give an extra 2" because hed be 6'10 in his boots give the extra inch which is 6'11 so in that case they just give him 7ft to round it off, kanes boots were 2 or 2.5" in 1997 so hed be around 6'7.5 or 6'8 prime
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 19/Apr/17
197cm peak. Today he could be anywhere from 189-191. Hard to tell because of poor posture and knee bending when standing.
Alan32080 said on 19/Apr/17
@Canson believe it or not my height stays the same through out the day unless I do PT then by evening measurement I may be a shade under 6'3" but not more than a 1/8" if that. I wake up at 6'3" but I do have a heavy frame. I personally believe he was between 6'5.5" to 6'6" at peak hell he could have hit his claimed 6'7" right out of bed but I doubt it.
shiva 181 cms said on 18/Apr/17
@Alan32080 when did you meet hulk Hogan
Canson (194 cm) 6'4 3/8 said on 18/Apr/17
If he's taller than you Alan means he must have very poor posture that he hides very well. Or that the 6'2.5 isn't your low. Most others that have met him say he's 6'3-6'3.5 range tops today but I do believe he was taller than I am prime and was a legit 196 or strong 196
opus said on 18/Apr/17
Hogan was about 6'4-3/4'' to 6'5'' peak. Looking at him with Dennis Rodman, I don't think he would have ever been the same height as him or taller as some on here may believe.
Alan32080 said on 18/Apr/17
@shiva 181 no way possible 6'2.5" barefoot. I'm 6'3" and in flip flops he was taller than me the lowest that could be humanly possible is 6'3.5".
shiva 181 cms said on 18/Apr/17
6'6 is too much for peak Hogan he barely looked over 6'5 and today no more than 6'2.5
Johan said on 18/Apr/17
Thats an interesting clip Vegas. So his mother would measure people who came to visit, I bet this was with shoes.

9 back surgeries, hip replacements a couple of inches is pretty much a certainty.

6'5.5" at peak and 6'3" today.
RP said on 17/Apr/17
Yep! Hulkster is pretty much straight up giving us his legit heights in shoes.
Peak sneakers/shoes: 6'6.75" to 6'7"...barefoot 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"
Current sneakers/shoes: 6'4.5"...barefoot 6'3" to 6'3.5"
dicksock said on 17/Apr/17
I think it's clear that he was about 6'5.5" tops in his prime and is maybe a little over 6'3" today; maybe 6'3.5". I don't think he lost more than around 2". It's possible he wakes up at 6'4" and has been measured at that height.
miko said on 17/Apr/17
6'4.5 in footwear is possible today I guess. Still 6'3/6'3.25 barefoot.

As was 6'7 in his boots back in the day, obviously he never ever hit 6'7 barefoot though, 6'5.5 at the absolute maximum.
Alan32080 said on 16/Apr/17
@vegas I'm 6'3" barefoot and he was taller than me. Visibly taller no more than a inch though. I know my true height and weight down to the tee and pound because of my job. Hulk can't be no lower than 6'3.5" but could be 6'4" also.
Vegas said on 15/Apr/17
I was at the shop during mania 33 weekend and my friend (who is 6'4) met him and Hogan was shorter, hopefully i can get the photo off him to post as it's a really good one.

We were talking to a guy working there the previous night and he was trying to convince us that Hogan once stood 6'7 and is now 6'4.

In this video just before shop opened Hogan claims he was measured 6'7 by his mother and now stands 6'4.5 so maybe Rob can use this in the quotes as it's the most recent example of him talking about his height Click Here
aaronious said on 14/Apr/17
i think Hogan may have had another surgery or something and perhaps another spinal fusion with an artificial disc to help correct some of his height loss...he was a very STRONG 6'3.5", 'maybe' even close to 6'4" over Wrestlemania 33 weekend In Orlando at Hogan's beach shop. he posed with hundreds of Fans, including a friend of mien who is a full legit 6'2", and Hogan was 2 inches taller
day day said on 14/Apr/17
Think referee joey marella was 5'9-10"he looked like a child next to hogan and andre at wm 3 anyway used to be involved in pro wrestling and the way it works is your measured in your wrestling boots then given an extra inch for your billed height so you could be anything from 1.5-3.5" taller depending on the boots
Old Conservative Hippie said on 8/Apr/17
Back in my prime in 1977 I was 6'4.5" tall, needless to say no thanks to father time I'm no longer that tall. I met Hogan in '77 and he was every bit of 6'7" and my guess around 315 pounds. As someone who got very fast at high levels in sports, I can understand what surgery does to a person, especially with the back and neck

And I find it hard to believe you only look 2 inches shorter than your 6'2 son in multiple pics, lol. Absurd



Do yourself a favor and look up a segment with Donakd Trump and stone cold steve Austin. Austin who is listed at 6'1.25 on this site is a full inch and noticiby shorter then Donald Trump. Check it out

Atlas was no way near 6'2 peak, and Trump was not 6'3 since he wasnt taller than Tyson by any more than around 3 inches and theres alot of pictures of the two (some pics shows a difference of 2 and some other 4, so 3 taller sounds fair)
RYAN11 said on 5/Apr/17
Firecracker, that photo is useless to gauge any of their heights as they are all staggered and at different distance and angles to the camera. I have a son who is 6'2" and I'm a little over 5'8" but in some photos I can look no more than 2 inches shorter than him. And it is a weak attempt to lower Hogans height by lowering everyone else's around him. Trump was 6'3" all day long and is still 6'2" easily. Atlas was over 6'2" and Hogan had 5-6" on him. FYI Hogan was announced at 337lbs and 6'8" for his match against Andre at Shea!
Alan32080 said on 4/Apr/17
@Firecracker. Tony Atlas was indeed 6'2" barefoot height most likely 6'3 1/8" in wrestling gear. Not sure about the other 2 guys but Atlas I have met and chit chatted with numerous times. He was married to a white woman who owned a restaurant in Melbourne, FL that I frequently went to years ago when I went through the academy. He was always in there. I haven't seen him in many years but then 6'2" all day long. Trump I have also met when he was campaigning and did a event in Saint Augustine, FL that we worked Security on. He was my height in shoes (6'3") probably a lift wearer.
No disrespect meant in my comments just stating what I have seen first hand. God Bless.

Don Muraco is on his tip toes in that pic, BTW.
There are about 10-12 photos from that day in the gym. With multiple angles, guys slouching, other guys standing perfectly straight...Don on his tip toes...etc..Look at the pics that Don isn't tip Toeing, Tony is 1" taller. Also, there is one pic from this photo shoot that is perfect for comparing heights. In that pic Hogan looks 3.5" taller than Atlas & 4.5" taller than Muraco.
RYAN11 said on 3/Apr/17
Straight ahead, many tall and large men loose 3-4 inches by their 60's without all the surgeries and injuries Hogan has had. They loose it mostly in their necks and legs, unable to keep their legs straight and leaning over too much over years. My Grandpa was 6'3", but in his 70's was barely over 6 feet. Hogan if you care to look stands with his knees bent a lot and he leans to one side, if not for the hip replacements, knee replacements and major back surgery he would be in a wheelchair for sure right now.
firecracker said on 3/Apr/17

First of all, stop joking about atlas. Stop saying tony atlas was 6'2".

Here atlas with 6'0.5"(184cm) donald trump last year:Click Here

atlas looks 5'11"-6ft (180-183cm) with trump, so when he was young he was max 6'1" to be generous.

Considering the young atlas max 6'1", don muraco a full 6'2", hogan looks 6'3"-6'4". i don't see him a legit 6'5". So anything over 6'5" is overestimated.

@ straightahead - I did see a programme once on people with osteoporosis. Two of the men featured had shrunk from 5ft10 to 5ft3, but they were still walking.
I do see what you mean though; their prognosis for the future was glum and fairly inevitable that they would end up in wheelchairs, the poor things. So I do agree with what you said generally. Perhaps that might teach us all to up our intake of calcium - before it's too late. 👍🍶🐄
Gman said on 2/Apr/17
My two cents is 6 feet 5 inches flat at peak height in his prime, max. He very frequently had on cowboy boots, or in my opinion, wresting boots w/boost. Also, most of the wrestlers we compared him to (back in the day) were not quite as tall as we believed them to be. And of course, if you were a kid in the 80's and a WWF fan like me, you worshiped Hulk and believed every word he said. And I do believe him, he was about 6 feet 7 when wearing those big cowboy boots. I visualize a guy like Wlad Klitchko and Hulk Hogan back-to-back barefoot in there primes, and I'd bet the farm Wlad edges out Hulk.

Alan32080, thank you at last someone with a truthful and accurate post on Hogans current height. I also met him a couple years ago in person and took photos with him later in the day after he had been standing most of the time and he was well over 6'4" still barefoot. He says 6'4.5" now and that is the truth. He was said to be 6'8- 6'9" by announcers in the 80's, Hogan himself never went around claiming anything but 24"arms. He was well over 6'6" back then and everything not only points to but proves it. Again, nice post!
____________________________________________________________

I have no idea as to how tall Hogan is today. However, he was not ever the full 6'6" in my opinion, he really wasn't that much taller than my Grandfather who was slightly over 6'4" at the time in 1980. I can see 6'5.5" at most.
RP said on 1/Apr/17
I just re-watched both Hulk Hogan vs Undertaker matches from late 1991...The Survivor Series match & the re-match at Tuesday in Texas. There is seriously only a 1.5" difference in height between them, when they both stood up good & straight! Peak Hogan: 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" & Peak Undertaker 6'7" to 6'7.25" !!! Undertaker also switched to a thicker footwear in the ring around 1994/95. Also in those matches Undertaker looks 293-298 to me! Not 328 by no means!! And Hogan looked 287-292 & not 302-303! Peak Hogan 1982-1990: 295-310 lbs ...1991 Hogan: 290...early 1992 Hogan: 285...late 1992: Hogan 280...IMO.

@RP @David Banner. Thank you very much for the kind words this day and time LEO's get a bad wrap. I will post pictures but I will have to cover faces and any tattoos or identifiable marks on myself and others. Not trying to hide but our job takes us in the slum and scum of America and need to keep unwanted eyes knowing our identities. I actually was talking with a Jacksonville Fire Fighter yesterday about this and he met Hogan, Hall and Jimmy Hart in Daytona last year working a race over there. He guessed Hogan and Hall to be 6'5" and said they were my height that just goes to show you height is so hard to nail down from 1 point of view to another. I can see why folks say 6'3" because when a man of lower stature stands next to them Hogan has a way of getting on there level plus his lower body is a wreck. His legs look very frail and I remember him always bending his knees not on purpose but as if it was a comfort thing. He may only be 6'3.5" now but in my opinion he could still see 6'4" in the morning. As for peak height I could see a 6'5.5" to 6'6" accurate listing. But honestly without a tape measure on flat ground and numerous witnesses to verify it would be hard to say that is fact. Still he is a very big guy and weight I would say 275 to 290 in pounds I doubt any lower.

I won't name call or argue I will just agree to disagree. My opinion based on my barefoot height and other people's barefoot height that was there when we met him that I know he's 6'3.5" to 6'4" and I'm leaning between the 6'4" morning height.

Alan32080...thank you for your Sevice to your community, stay safe out there BrothA! Can you post your pics with the Hulkster? Would be great to see him with some legit 6'3" to 6'5" men..without bad & misleading angles with Terry (Hulk) standing fully straight with good posture. May good friend Brian Duncan who works in PT & nutrition designs with the WWE in Orlando, FL said that Hogan was about 6'3" to 6'3.5" & 265-270 lbs when he wither with him 2 yeas ago. Also, as I've said before ...My 2nd cousin from Lindside, WV (Mark Canterbury) aka Henry Goblin worked with Hulk & the WWF in the very late 1980's to early 1990's....he swears Hulk was a strong 6'5" to 6'5.5" & fluctuated anywhere from 290-305 lbs before he dropped 20 lbs in 1992. Mark was 6'4" & 285-290 lbs in his prime back then. Mark had a great pic of him & Hogan from 1991..Hulk was a solid 2" taller than Mark. However, Hulk had on Cowboy boots & Mark was in basic 1.25" wrestling boots. So...probably Hulk was 1.5" taller ...that why I'll stand by a peak barefoot Hogan as 6'5.5" until 100% proven otherwise.
Alan32080 said on 31/Mar/17
@David Banner those photos you are talking about are not good for judging height. Meet him in person and be honest and you will know what I'm saying is truth. I get weighed and measured every 3 months and that's barefoot with underwear on they require it on swat. He's no less than 6'3.5" middle afternoon and no doubt in my mind 6'4" out of bed.
David Banner said on 30/Mar/17
If he's 6'3.5"-6'4" today then why do 6'5" Peyton Manning and Joe Manganiello dwarf him?? Why is his 5'9.5" daughter nearly as tall him in heels? Why is 5'11" John Cena close in height? I can go on
Alan32080 said on 29/Mar/17
@bazza I can 100% accurately say he is above 6'3" today barefoot. I'm 6'3" and in my reefs which are flip flops in the U.S. if your not from here I'm 6'4" maybe a shade over because they have a bottle opener on the bottom meaning a hard sole I was shorter than him. He had on quick silver thin soled flip flops maybe giving 3/4". He is no less than 6'3.5" to 6'4" now. He had me by 3/4" to 1" so possibly 1" barefoot. With that observation I would say 6'4" on the money. I'm a deputy sheriff in Jacksonville FL and we were in Tampa training on a tactical swat team and he was at the shooting range we were training at. We have pictures with him and one of our guys who is 6'5" took a pic with him and there wasn't much of a gap with Jon (my team member) a shade taller.
bazza said on 28/Mar/17
@Danimal

I don't dispute Hogan has lost a fair bit through the surgeries, that said that Maybe he once did hit around 6' 5" mark.

Whatever, i think we can all agree he is a bit under his 6' 3" listing on here though as it stands today.

there is no way he could have lost more than a couple of inches even with the injuries and age. I would go with people saying 6' 4" ish peak (wearing huge lifts in the ring to appear taller) and now stands around 6' 2" at best, the evidence is there for all to see.

The sheer ignorance of this post MADE ME have to post here after a long time of not having posted on Hogans page. Hogan stood somewhere between 6'5" and 6'6" at his peak. He has lost tremendous height, not due to only age and injuries, but due to MULTIPLE height SHORTENING SURGERIES (neck fusion, fused discs in his spinal chord shortening his upper torso, hip replacements leaving him with a shorter femur and hips, knee replacements, etc, etc, etc. He's around 6'2" today. It wouldn't even surprise me if he's 1/4" under that today. He's lost 3-4" in the last 25-30 years. FACT.

@bazza - I couldn't agree more. Hulk Hogan is a larger than life figure that people grew up with and we all want him to be tall and large.
It's hard to accept the reality that he was never as tall and large as the WWF portrayed him as in the Kayfabe world of wrestling.
6'4" is very tall and especially with lifted wrestling boots and custom cowboy boots. Even in those lifts and boots he was never taller than people that were legit 6'6"

Rob, a lot of comments here believe Hogan was not quite 6'6" peak. Any possibility he was 6'5.5"? That may be a more indicator of his true height.
Editor Rob: Sean, I'd say the lowest I'd try to argue was 6ft 5.5...but I feel there is still enough out there to say he could in his 20's have measured near 6ft 6 flat
RisingForce said on 19/Mar/17
straightahead, that's because Vince was at least an inch taller than Bret until he got old. See the March 21st 1994 interview on YouTube for an example. Nowadays, it's a different story, though. As for Johnny Carson, apparently he claimed 5'10.5", but maybe he claimed 5'11" as well, he wouldn't be the first guy to claim 2 different heights.

RisingForce said on 13/Mar/17
Hogan had written earlier in his book that Sly was 5'8", which is a much more realistic guess than the silly 5'6" or 7" stuff. They obviously made Hulk taller for Rocky 3 by standing him on a box and using angles as "Thunderlips" was supposed to be an Andre the Giant type nearly 7' tall With Hulk no more than 2" down from his peak at still a good 6'3.5" in 2005, Sly could appear 5'10.5" or 5'11" with him: Click Here Vince McMahon is a good reference in that series of photos as he was still probably near 6'1". Ironically, the shoes Sly is wearing there are called Hogan shoes, a thick sneaker, which Sly liked to put big lifts in. Sly was likely 5'8.75" or a weak 5'9" peak so he and Hulk were not in great positions to pinpoint each other's height as I've long been convinced Hulk was 6'5.5" peak, a good 8.5"+ taller than Stallone at his peak, so nearly a head.

I'm 5'11" barefoot ...I had on 1.75" Skechers Logger boots. He had on what looked to be 2" cowboy boots. He was approximately 20 feet from me...he looked a strong 6'0" to me. Maybe 6'0.5"??? But, too hard to really judge from 20'ft away. He also had that darn big ass cowboy hat on too! Which can give you the appearance of being an inch taller than what you really are.

IN my opinion, Hogan first started loosing height right around 1992, because he started loosing size at that time from coming off the steroids. it is a known fact that heavy lifting and steroids equals height loss when you come off the juice. I have a friend who used to be me height, 6'2", and today he is 6'1", because he stopped juicing. Look at Arnold schwarzenegger, hes easily lost 2 inches. used to be a legit measured 6'1.75", and hes a shade under 6 ft today. Look at Ultimate Warrior, used to be 6'2" in his prime, and when he died, was around 6ft. soemthing happens when they lose all that muscle mass along the spinal column, the discs between your vertebrae get weighed down more, because there is less muscle to support them keep the pressure off, and keep them fully hydrated, so they pancake and flatten over time. and remember, a full 1/3rd of your spinal height is DISC, the other two 3rd is vertebrae. Piper is a prime example of what disc injury, trauma, and age can do to the spin. he was measured at 6'1.5", as a golden gloves boxer when he trained as a late teen under Judo Gene Lebell, and after years of wrestling injury, and having cancer and back surgeries, he was barely 5'9" at the time of his death. You can tell how much Piper's spine shrank because of his distended belly. he was skinny everywhere else except the belly, because his spinal column shrank, creating less space for his internal organs to exist, so they push out his belly.

anyways, just my 2 cents
FM said on 5/Mar/17
Rob, how tall would you say Savage was? DDP said in an interview that he didn't think Savage cracked 6 feet. Most picture of Hogan and Savage, Hogan looks to be heavily slouching down to make them look closer in height.
Editor Rob: I'm sure Hulk did crouch and stand poor with Randy at times, at least from what I've seen it looks that way. 6ft max for Randy? I'm not so sure of that.
Undertaker Frank said on 1/Mar/17
According to Hogan he said Sly was about 5ft 6 to 5ft 7 I heard some people say the he was very short dont forget Sly wears lifts in his shoes to make him appear about 5ft 10
Guanzo said on 26/Feb/17
He looked 6'7'' next to Rocky Balboa in Rocky III Sly is 5'9''

There isn't a level street or sidewalk in all of San Fransisco! LOL!!! Yes, Hogan is losing at least 1" to maybe 2" on that street incline.

@firecracker. You do realize that the picture of Hogan and Reigns is on a enclined road with Hogan on the downside of it. Look at the road and the trolley behind them. 6'3.5 to 6'4 is accurate for him no lower that 6'3.5 though.
The Ben said on 17/Feb/17
Firecracker you've picked the worst photos of Hogan ever.
Peak 6'5- 6'6 max seems okay.
Currently 6'3-6'4.
It's obvious when you meet him in person that he's unable to straighten his legs and his body is drastically tilted one way.
If you look at photos of him from even the late 80's doing his double bicep pose you can see his back is already tilting to one side.

Big show looks shorter next to Mabel than giant titan did which certainly rules out him being 7'1 in the 1990s ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************


I disagree with you Vegas, Big Show's head and long torso can give the illusion of looking shorter just like with Andre, if your head is at least 12 to 13 it will appear so.
Baks89 said on 16/Feb/17
Firecracker, Hogan has terrible posture that pic with Roman Reigns. You can even see he knees are bent because he cant straighten them as well. Hogan still 6'3.5 straighten out. So 2.5 inch loss which is believable consider the amount of back and hip surgeries hes had.

well i think guesses on hogan that lies in the range from 6`5 `1/4 - 6`6 1/8 is is pretty fair. i still go with the one in the middle. 197 is what he genereally looked. and i can say he doesnt look taller than me. i think he could have been shorter by 2-3 mm even. today really hard to say with that back and knees. who knows if he measures 2-3 cm taller than he looks. its hard to tell becuase he is like one of the few in the world with a back broken as his. today he looks about 190 but measured i think 191,5
firecracker said on 11/Feb/17
many of you think human body is like a puzzle. you can shrink if you have serious back problems and if you gain a lot of weight (fat) year by year. donald trump is and was in the 6ft range, he is 70 in good shape, he has always had a slim body, and he didn't have any back problem. he didn't shrink, maybe he lost a weak inch, he was max 6'0.75"(185cm), never been taller than that.

trump in his 40ies with an old ronald reagan who struggled with 6ft even when he was young. reagan was never taller than 5'11" in my opinion:Click Here. trump was as tall as an old reagan. no way trump was 6'2"(188cm) barefoot. don't joke.

hogan nowdays with roman reigns who claims to be 6'2"(188cm):Click Here

hogan at his peak with roddy piper (who was in the 6ft range, don't joke even with piper!):Click Here

hogan is as tall as roman reigns. So hogan nowdays is 6'2"(188cm). Hogan had serious back problems of course. how much did he shrink? i think a realistic shrinking can be 2-3 inches. So i think hogan was max 6'4.75"(195cm), peak barefoot. He was tall no doubt. You can't shrink 4-5-6 inches from 20 to 60!!! human body is not a puzzle!!!
Jj said on 10/Feb/17
Looked 1.25 iches taller than Brock a couple of years ago. So 6'3.25 now and 6'5.25 peak seems about right I think. So hard so call because his eye line is often the same as shorter guys but looks like he has quite a long head.

trump is (was) in the 6ft(183cm) range. Hogan looks 6'4-6'5" (193-195cm) with trump. We don't see the ground, probably hogan wears wrestling boots, 2 inches heels. We could say hogan peak barefoot was a full 6'4"(193cm).

nowdays he is in the 6'2" (188cm) range.


Trump was himself 6'2" (188cm) at that time...the man is 70 years old now ffs. Hogan looks as I would have imagined a good 3 inches taller but not quite 4 inches. Leaving him again in the strong 6'5" range. Just like "Tiny" Lister said, the same as 6'9.5"-6'10" Kevin Nash claiming that he could see the top of his head so at least 4.5-4.75 inches taller. Hogan was 6'5" peak. Max 6'5.5".

That pic is from April 1989 at Wrestlemania V.. in 1989 Trump was a legit 6'2" barefoot & 6'3" in shoes !!! Trump was 42 years old in that pic & Hogan was 35 (April 1989) !! Hogan had Trump by exactly 4" there! Hogan was indeed In his standard yellow wrestling boots! My cousin Who I've already named on here in the past, was briefly a professional wrestler & also worked in the WWF/WWE ...he said standard issued wrestling boots, that do not have lifts in them only increase your height by 1.25" Just like basketball sneakers!..not 2"!!! Hogan is right @ 6'7" in wrestling boots there in '89...making him the 6'5.75" to 6'5.5" barefoot that most of us already knew he was up until his late 30's...Again !! Donald Trump was 6'2" peak!! Not 6'0"!!! Hell, he's 6'0.5" to 6'0.75" now at age 70!!!

I agree with you that Hogan wasn't 6'6". 6'4" peak though is just a bit too short. I don't need to analyze any pictures or video, trying to make guesses off how tall another person is supposed to be, or how close they are to the camera, or what shoes they are wearing. Hogan was a legit 6'5" guy

@ sraightahead, another guy I saw in person and talked to briefly was the late great Reggie White. Granted the time between seeing the two was 16 years, but Hulk was definitely much bigger upper body wise than 290lb Reggie and easily the same height.

62B, i think its the other way around! Hogan was in better shape and more muscular in late 70's / early 80's but got bulkier around his belly in mid/late 80's and became heavier, still being billed "only" 297-303.
____________________________-

In 1980, in person, Hogan was slightly taller and much larger muscle wise than my Grandfather who was at the time a little over 6'-4" and in the 280Lb range. I just can't see a peak Hogan under 6'5" and weight wise probably really close to the 300 lb mark. Today from pictures only, to me Hogan looks to be barely 6'3". He may even be under 6'3" by a fraction an inch. I would really like to meet him now as I bet He and I are very close in height.

straightahead said on 4/Feb/17
RP, they looked pretty much the same but if anyone had the edge then it would been Fralic for sure due to his more massive leg muscles (football background) and i guess the same goes for Jimbo Covert, who looked same height as Hogan btw.

Bill Fralic did NOT look heavier than Hulk Hogan in 1986!! Not at all...Hogan look easily 15-20 lbs heavier! They actually looked almost the exact same height! Hogan had a thicker/fatter neck...a thicker/fatter waist & stomach...his overall torso & chest was thicker ...not necessarily wider than Fralic...but, definitely thicker!! And his arms we a lot bigger than Fralic's! Their thighs looked to be about the same size! 1986 Fralic 6'5" & 280-285...1986 Hogan 6'5.5" & 300-305 lbs...no doubt!!' Hogan looked just as heavy and more muscular than 6'4.25" & 302 lbs Jim Covert in 1986 as well !!!

Try late 80's / 1990. He was at his very biggest back then and being billed 297-303, what does that tell you? Legit 6'5 / 280 lbs Bill Fralic looked both taller and more massive than what Hogan ever did, so 275 for Hogan when he was at his biggest seems about right. Before wwf and when he made his debut in 1979, he looked barely 260.

Whats insane is to believe that the biggest star in wwf/e was being billed smaller than he really was...

Hogan may have been more muscular in the late 80's early 90's, but he was for sure bigger in the late 70's early 80's when he as billed in around 330lbs

For me he was a hair under 6'6 ( 6'6 out of bed) and weighed 305-320 at his peak.
I believe he is 6'2.5 today

@Junior31 and @straightahead

300 lbs is a lot of weight for someone 6'4-6'5" peak. Young Hogan was beefy and muscular on Roids so I wouldn't be surprised
if he was close. The only thing I would say is as we all know, the WWF was notorious for inflating height and weight and they
billed him at 302-320 right? So that leads me to believe @straighahead may be on to something. 275 lbs and muscular does make
for a very large man. I know a personal trainer guy that's 6'2" and very muscular with big arms and quads and only weighs 215 lbs.
I think @Junior31 is spot on with his current height though. 6'2.5" on his best day now. The way he stacks up to John Cena, The Rock,
Troy Aikman, Sly Stallone, Joe Mangerella, David Hasselhoff,and ME are very telling.
I truly do wish we could all bring our resources together in harmony and prove once and for all what he was peak and what is now and then all agree. Is that even possible?
berta said on 3/Feb/17
hm people genereally think he was almost 198 at peak. maybe he was that tall. when over 100 people guess its a proven fact that it will almost everytime be correct. well of course thats not really true but according to the guesses its safe to say he was strong 197 ore weak 198 guy at peak

If Hogan did lose anything by the mid 90's it was 0.25 at best. He might have gone down from 6'5.25 to a flat 6'5 by the time he joined WCW.

He started to look under 6'5 towards the late 90's as that's when he started breaking down physically. He was likely a flat 6'4 by the time of his WWE return in 2002.

230!!! No way. I think your devaluing just how big of a guy he is, was , and structurally is supposed to be. While far from his peak he still has the bone structure of a big man even through joint degeneration and loss. He's nothing below 260 today.

In my opinion he'd lost height by 93, he was completely different person to 5 years earlier.
He'd been running hard on the road wrestling hundreds of times a year.
At 40 I'm not as tall as I was at 20 due to injury, it's easily possible the same would apply to Hogan.

___________________

He didn't have any severe injuries by that point. Plus, he looked identical next to Mean Gene in 1993 as he did in 1983. He looked the same next to Randy Savage and numerous other people as well. I've seen zero proof that he lost height by the mid 90s and lots of proof that he didn't. That fact combined with the fact that most men don't start losing height until their 40s (and even then it's minimal) makes me think that he didn't lose any height. He was never more than a solid 6'5" guy, maybe 6'5.5". He still looked about 6'5" by the time he got to WCW.

Hulk Hogan was billed at 303 lbs because Rocky was billed at 202 lbs and because they wanted to make the difference between him and monster heels seem bigger than it really was.
Here's Hogan billed at 6'8"+ 341 lbs.
Hogan isn't even at his peak size here.
Hogan on Johnny Carson and other peak weight appearances could easily been billed at 375 lbs+.
Click Here
Hogan was WELL over 300 lbs at real peak weight.
He could have been anywhere between 325 and 350 lbs, but I don't know the exact figure.

Hogan was never 350lbs or close to it. He looked low 300's at his peak...maybe 310lbs.

He's WAY over that, when I met I was with a 6'2 out of shape 300lb guy who you wouldn't give a second look at.
Just a regular but not overly big fat guy.
Hogan had a way bigger frame, the length and size of his hands and arms was surprising.
I could see him being anywhere from 260 to 290.
I imagine back in the mid 80's he was an incredible sight.
I know there are much bigger guys today but if you threw a 1988 Hulk Hogan in the WWE today he'd still be the most charismatic guy and I bet the red and yellow along with his size would make him a huge attraction.

No way in the world did he lose any height by 39 (1993). He was in great shape at that point and suffered zero loss in posture or agility. The average man doesn't lose an inch in height until their 80s. Plus, he looked identical in height next to everyone, including Mean Gene. Just like 6'5" Tiny Lister said, "Me and Hulk are both 6'5" in real life." Hogan was a solid 6'5" guy in his prime, may have dipped down to 6'4" by the early 2000s, and is a solid 6'3" now. His weight probably peaked at about 300lbs at various points in his career, and he probably did get down to 230-240lbs by 1994/1995.

___________________________________________--

I wouldn't say its impossible that Hogan hadn't lost any height by 39. I first noticed that I had lost a fraction of an inch in my later 30's. Now at 48 I have lost a little over 1/2".

6'5 to 6'6 maximum barefoot.
Looks to be 2.5" shorter today.
Looked within an inch of Jake Roberts, Hillbilly Jim, Eathquake and Zeus who are all in the 6'5-6'6 range.

I could see him in the early 300lb range at his biggest and I believe he dropped to 235lbs around the time of Mr Nanny in late 92 early 93.
There was an interview with him in impact magazine in 94 that gave the 235lb weight.
He did a few UK TV shows in 93 and looked 6'5-ish.
I would say he really started to lose height in 92.

Coming off steroids will cause you to lose muscle mass, the muscles reduce in size in all ways and as the core, hip and back muscles shrink you can lose a little height, it looks to me by 93 that Hulk was around an inch shorter than 87.
