Click Here Wouldn't rule out 6'8" for a 2015 Ed Jones although he didn't quite look it in the pic I posted with ~ 6'7" George Gervin. ~6'8" Kevin Love seemed taller next to Hogan as well.
dicksock says on 25/Jan/15
Here's an actual pic with Jones and Hogan:
Click Here

There is definitely at least 5" between. Hogan looks just as big as Jones and look at the size of Hogan's hands. Again, I'm not convinced that Jones wasn't 6'9" in his prime. I would guess Jones is still a solid 6'8" and Hogan is right at 6'3". So much for all these marines and army guys on here who swear Hogan is still 6'4.5"/6'5". Like I figured, they were either lying or just didn't know what they were talking about. This picture should put an end to any idea that Hogan is still 6'4". He is officially around 6'3".
dicksock says on 25/Jan/15
I'm not much of a sports fan, but all I see for Jones are listings of 6'9" and 6'10". Is it not probable he was his listed 6'9"? He sure looked it.
RP says on 24/Jan/15
Ed looks to have 5" on Hogan
miko says on 24/Jan/15
Hulk is probably looking somewhere around 6'3.5 with Jones.

There appears to be at least 5" between them. 6'3" is probably spot on for Hogan.

So in that picture if jones is 6'8" hulk looks 6'4" with horrible posture and bent knees.
RP says on 22/Jan/15
Peak ED Jones was 6'8.25" barefoot
JT says on 21/Jan/15
Click Here Here’s a recent pic of Ed Jones with George Gervin Click Here My brother (6’0”) has a pic with Gervin from a few years ago, with Gervin looking 6’7” range. Jones (age 63) could be 6'8" now but that's probably it.

During the wide shots, Hogan looked about 3" taller than Sting at times. Sting also had some pretty chunky boots on there and probably had a footwear advantage. I'd say at that time Sting was 6'2" and Hogan was around 6'5.5".
_________

you see a 3.5 inch difference there, more than twice what you think sid had on hogan in 1991-92? stings boots are pretty normal just black sole on white boot sticks out.

______

I did not say there was a 3.5" difference in that video. I said Hogan only appeared 3" taller at the most due to Sting's obvious footwear advantage. If Hogan wasn't at least 6'5" in the mid 90s, why did he clearly have at least 1.5" on 6'3.25" Luger when Luger was in thick cowboy boots and had a large footwear advantage? That made him at least 2" taller than a measured 6'3.25" guy in 1995. He couldn't have been under 6'5" in 1995.
Wrestling nana says on 19/Jan/15
I've stood next to him recently at the health food store. He's only about 6'3".

hogan was shorter than brian adams (crush) in 1997 just for reference. rob has crush at 6'5 while powerslam (biggest non-kayfabe magazine in the 1990s) used to describe crush as 6'4 back in the mid 1990s

Yes Dicksock, but...Hogan only has Larry "Lex" by 1.50" IMO. Wrestling boots=1.25" & Lex's Cowboy boots=2" makes Hogan 1.75"

________

Your math seems to be screwy. If Hogan appeared 1.5" taller and was at a .75" footwear disadvantage, the real difference would have been 2.25", not 1.75". Unless, Hogan had some type of internal lift, I don't know how his boots could have given him a 1.25" boost. I doubt Luger was getting a full 2" boost from his boots either. I really doubt Luger lost any height by that point. He was only 37 years old. You may be right the difference appeared less than 2" though. It may have been 1.5"/1.75". Again, if there was a 1.5" difference when Luger had a .75" footwear advantage, Hogan would have been 2.25" taller. So, 6'3.25" and 6'5.5".
RP says on 19/Jan/15
Yes Dicksock, but...Hogan only has Larry "Lex" by 1.50" IMO. Wrestling boots=1.25" & Lex's Cowboy boots=2" makes Hogan 1.75" taller. Making Hogan still right @ 6'5" in '94-'95', most likely 6'4.75" due to Luger being in his late 30's in '94-'95 & probably down to 6'3" even himself after years of the football & pro wrestling lifestyle. Hogan's most noticeable height loss happened between 1995-1997, when he seemed to have lost 1/2" to 3/4" during that 2 year run in WCW.
James B says on 18/Jan/15
Clearly he lost height from the 80s by the time of the early 90s. A legit 6'5 (196cm) in 1991, 6'4.5-6'4.75 in the nwo wcw era and 6'4-6'4.25 when he joined wwe in the invasion storyline in 2002.

Jim, I've met Tom Zenk...he's 5'11.5" barefoot!!! LMAO! Your 6'2" claim for him is total hogwash & just a lie! Also, Dusty Rhodes was only 6'0" in cowboy boots & his thick Rasslin boots. Peak barefoot Lex Luger was 6'3.25"!! This was his barefoot measurement from his rookie physical with the Green Bay Packers!! 6'3.25" & 271 lbs! Luger is medically documented & locked down! No need to speculate on him ! At age 22/23 he was 6'3.25" barefoot.

____________

If Luger was 6'3.25 for a fact, that should make it pretty easy to pin point Hogan's height. In 1995, Hogan was 2" taller than 6'3.25" Luger when Luger was in cowboy boots and had a slight footwear advantage. Therefore, it is reasonable to say that Hogan was about 6'5.5" in 1995 and probably a little closer to 6'6" in his prime.
jim1972 says on 18/Jan/15
@RP
i only told you what i thought when i met them i'm 6' and Zenk had me in height i don't remember our surroundings but he was taller than me. Dusty looked me eye to eye same height i did not study what footwear they each had on. Luger was around 6'4" imo and Windham was bigger than him. Bottom line you can't call me a liar for telling you my opinion! This site is based on opinions not facts and another person i met there was JYD he was taller than me but i do not remember seeing him by any of those guys to compare to.

Was hogan really 6'6 peak is the question? In the 90s he wasn't that much past his prime.

Hes never been anywhere near to 6'6... he peaked 6'4, and is still around 6'3 even to this day. Ppl dont lose inches in heigts, thats a myth.

They do when they've had two hip replacements, two knee replacements and 9 back surgeries because their back is in the shape of a J.
The taller you are the more height you lose too because you have more cartilage to waste away.

I met Mike Rotunda (IRS) about 6 years ago and he was around 6'1

I just happened to be randomly watching this nitro on the network the other night from 1995, thats a decent comparison between ~6'2 sting and a 42 year old hogan in his old yellow gear at the end, if the difference between sid and hogan in 1991-92 was 1.5 inches as dicksock estimates then how much difference is there from 8min 20seconds onward Click Here

I'd say theres about a 1 to 2 inch difference depending on the camera angle but sting has an obvious footwear advantage.

Hogan doesn't have that much more height on Sting in that video than he does today, Hulk and Sting had a few staredowns in TNA and the difference could look around 1.5/2 difference, and Sting still looks around 6'2 today.

Hulk seemed a hair over 6'5 in the 80's and a hair under it throughout most the mid to late 90's.

Dicksock, you must think it’s more than 5 inches from Hogan’s eyebrows to the top of his head then since the top of Piper's head is above Hogan's eyebrow level Click Here The fact that Hogan’s head looks that much bigger than Piper’s probably means that he’s a little closer to the camera as well, which doesn’t help your case. Nothing wrong with either person’s posture either.

__________

Hogan could have stood slightly taller. If he raised his head just a little bit, the top of Piper's head would have been below Hogan's eyebrows. Again, the difference was approximately 5". I would bet anything I'm right.

Cool pics dude.

But I'm seeing that Sids heel looks thicker then hogans almost double the size. Does everybody agree judging those pics?????

@james b
i worked at Bakersfield CA airport during the time i worked there i met Steve Sting Borden he flew in and out of there weekly i always talked to him because i was a huge NWA fan ftom living in South Carolina. I asked him a ton of questions about wrestling and he was awesome about answering them he didn't say it was real he called it energetic acting. He told me sid was 6-8 legit, he said the NWA did weigh and measure there wrestlers unlike the WWF at the time. I believe him about sids height because of other people he told me and some where smaller than what the WWF billed them. Steve said the reason they add weight and height is when there on tv they look bigger so its believable. So a 6-6 hogan peak is probably accurate.
RP says on 14/Jan/15
And Hogan's arms look massive there too! I can buy a 22" arm for Hogan there. Especially when comparing them to Piper's who's were about 17" @ 230 lbs.
RP says on 14/Jan/15
Looks spot on 5" to me too! And equal footwear. Which again verifies what we all already know ! Peak Piper: 6'0.5" to 6' 0.75" & peak Hogan: 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" !!!

thats 5.5 inches taller roddys hair dosent count. good pic. hogan was at least 6.6 in wrestling boots.

Rob I'd say next to sid and ultimate warrior hogan looks 6'4-6'5 would you agree?
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VGZRhxoAk6Y

He can't have been that much shorter than he was in the 80s in that video so perhaps a peak of 6'5 (196cm) is more accurate than 6'6?

Of course Windham’s closer to the camera. I’m just looking at arm size relative to that same person’s body size. Hogan’s arms are obviously larger than Windham’s but they don’t really stand out size-wise.

You won’t find a better pic of Hogan and Piper than this Click Here That’s under a 5 inch difference. Hogan's around 33 here.

___________

Actually, that looks like exactly a 5" difference. Once again, you are ignoring posture and overestimated the length of an inch. Also, you must be joking about Windham's arms being as big as Hogan's. His arms were much closer to the camera than Hogan's and they still looked smaller.

Why are people saying he's 6ft 4 or better when hes Shorter than than people who are listed @ 6ft 4 ??? Troy Aikmen David Hasseloff he was Shorter Then Snoop Dogg Also Kevin Nash said when he first seen Hogan years ago he was surprised that Hogan was about 6ft 4 this was in the 80's
184.3cm says on 12/Jan/15
I think Rob's listing is just fine, maybe a half inch off at peak and maybe even now but thats as good a guess as anyone can make without meeting him. If you want to prove he is over 6'3 nowadays then post a pic and also send Rob proof of your own height.
krank46 says on 11/Jan/15
If i ever see him again i will flat out ask him whats the worst thing he will say no or get lost but from my height and his hes at least 6-4.5.
krank46 says on 11/Jan/15
I do not know if he was taller than Roberts or tenta back then but hes every bit of 6-4.5 now im 6-3 and change 6-4 plus in boots and he was taller than me when i seen him. I can tell you this when i worked at the bakersfield airport years ago i would see Steve sting Borden weekly and i talked yo him often i never asked about hogans height but i did ask about other peoples like warrior and andre, he told me warrior was 6-2 and andre was 7-1 prime and 7-0 in the mid 80s when he worked with him in NWA for a short time Steve said luger was almost 6-4 and sid was 6-8 Steve was around 6-2.5 he was a nice guy

Here is a great video of Jake and Hogan in equal footwear on "The Snake Pit":
Click Here
Jake was in tennis shoes and Hulk was in his wrestling boots. At 1:15, it's clear Hogan was taller.


__________________________________________________________
I think Jake doesn´t stand as good at Hulk at 1:15, no doubt peak Hulk would edge Jake but not an inch.

Jake has pretty flat tennis shoes and Hulks wrestling boots give him a slight advantage there.

There´re other snake pit vids
Click Here 1:11 both in straight posture and pretty close in height.

At Survivor Series 89 Jake didn´t have his big boots like he had figting Taker, Jake has to be 6´5" to look that close in height to Taker who was about 6´8.5" in ring gear at Wrestlemania 8

Wearing this kind of footwear he would be significantly taller than Hogan...

___________

I don't see Hogan having any posture or footwear advantages in that video. It's pretty cut and dry. If anything, Hogan looked about 2" taller in that video. You're kidding yourself if you think he looked less than an inch taller in that video. It is ludicrous to believe Jake would have been significantly taller than Hogan in his thick boots. He didn't stack up any better next to Taker in his thick boots than Hogan did. The times Hogan and Taker wrestled each other in the early 90s, they looked similar in height. Sid and Taker were virtually identical in height and I think Sid was only about 1.5" taller than Hogan.

Yes. Orton is ~6'4.5" and Sid was 6'7" in his prime. So Sid was about 2.5" taller than Orton... Orton is probably one of the only wrestlers ever who has been underlisted in height. He is one tall dude.

Legit 6'1" IRS? I would say more like 6'2" at least. I don't know if you're aware of this, but one of the posters emailed Ted Dibiase about his height. Ted said that he was 6'3.75" in his prime. IRS was nearly the same height as Ted. Hulk was also at least 2" taller than Ted. Perhaps Ted was exaggerating, but I doubt it. I wouldn't be surprised if IRS was a legit 6'2.5".

What is wrong with you? Why would you talk to someone like that just because they disagree with you about Hulk Hogan's height? You're the one who talks like some internet tough guy who has no life. Also, at 1:30 you can't see his knees bent because he was only being filmed from the waist up and he was not slouching. Seriously though, you sound like a psycho.

Jake was in tennis shoes and Hulk was in his wrestling boots. At 1:15, it's clear Hogan was taller. Remember, Jake occasionally wore wrestling boots with very thick heels. Remember the Funeral Parlor segment where he nearly looked the same height as a prime Undertaker? It was because of his heels. I bet Jake was a legit 6'5" and could look 6'6" in thick heels. The only other explanation is that Hogan was wearing lifts on the Snake Pit segment.

Given how he stacked up to Sid Eudy, a 6'6 prime Hogan is impossible

Given how he had 1" on 6'5" Jake the Snake Roberts and 1" on 6'5" Hilbilly Jim in the mid-late 1980's (his prime)



Hogan never had an inch on Jake and HBJ looked more like 6´4"ish without his cowboyboots.

Also, just to prove your own hypocrisy, you claim Hilbilly was 6'4", yet John Tenta was 6'5 3/4"? Go onto Hilbilly Jim's personal website and there is a pic of Tenta and Hilbilly Jim BACKSTAGE together and guess who is taller? That's right, you guessed it. HILBILLY JIM!!

Given how he stacked up to Sid Eudy, a 6'6 prime Hogan is impossible

Given how he had 1" on 6'5" Jake the Snake Roberts and 1" on 6'5" Hilbilly Jim in the mid-late 1980's (his prime)



Hogan never had an inch on Jake and HBJ looked more like 6´4"ish without his cowboyboots.

6'5.5 Peak
6'3.5 Today
HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 6/Jan/15
My peak estimation for Hogan:
198cm/ 6´6" out of bed, 196cm/ 6´5.25" evening

At WM8 facing Sid Eudy ( 6´6.5" peak per Rob and looked it next to 6´3" Lex Luger)
Hogand was slightly on his tiptoes and looked 1.75" shorter, so legit 2"

So 1992 Hogan at WM8 was down to 194cm / 6´4.5"

Looked that height during his WCW Run and appeared ~6´3.5" since ~ 2002-2003

Could really be down to 6´3" today but footwear is still questionable as he gives a 6´4" impression next to current WWE Superstars
RP says on 6/Jan/15
Yes! In a recent interview Lister says that he was 6'5" & 305 lbs during his stint in pro wrestling & Hogan was 6'5" & 300 lbs. He said that the WWF made him wear 2" logger boots in the ring that made him 6'7"...and in the movie No Holds Barred he wore even bigger boots than that. This is all very accurate. Look at all the in-ring stare downs with Hogan, Zeus even with 2" logger boots was still only 0.75" to 1" taller than Hogan in his 1.25" wrestling boots. Zeus also says when he auditioned for the role he was 285-287 lbs. And that the WWF sent him through a 3 month vigorous training regimen & bulked him up to 305-310 lbs. Right after the release of the movie & Zeus's first few appearances he was billed @ 6'11" & 343 lbs to match his movie billing...however, a few months later WWF started billing him @ 6'9" & 327 lbs. Lister also says the 1st time he met Andre The Giant in the locker room that Andre "almost" 7'1" & 505 lbs this was in May 1989. Lister also said that at his strongest he could bench press 585 lbs. And that he is truly legally blind in the one crazy eye.

Wrstlefan1 says on 6/Jan/15
Chuck, the boots have a 2 inch heel, and if you look they also have lifts inside. He basically had high heel shoes on making him 3-4 inches taller than his barefoot height. This gave him a 3 inch advantage over Hogan and his thin soled boots. So that makes him 6'5" and Hogan over 6'7". Listers boots made him almost 6'9" tall.

Yeah I was only going by sole thickness when I stated 1 1/2 inches, the heel and lifts would add more, very similar to the boots Kane wore early on.

I have proof that Hulk Hogan was never 6'6 or6'5, back at his prime which was in the 80s. Hulk Hogan wrestles agaist tiny lister who is listed at 6'5 he had 1'5 to 2inches in Hogan, which puts hogan at 6'4 at his prime. Just watch no holds barred.

please how us. Please let me give you some free advice before you get owned on this sight. Google pictures as well as youtube videos of tiny lister he his self said he wore 3.5 inch lifted shoes in that movie so he would be bigger than terry. Terry is 6'4+ now and was 6'6" prime maybe a little more which is a good arguement amongst people.

____________

Good point. Those snakeskin boots were not even giving him a two inch boost. Just because the heel looks big and thick, doesn't mean it's give that much of a boost. He was probably getting around a 1.75" boost. The ones from the 1991 interview Red posted are even smaller. They don't give more than a 1.25" boost from what I can tell. But yes, Hogan was 6'5.5"-6'6" and is around 6'3"-6'3.5" now.

Once again, my height out of bed at the time of the Cena pic was 6'6.75". My low height was around 6'5 & 7/8" to a flat 6'6". I had verified that within just a couple of hours my height was dropping down to around 6'6 & 1/4" (that's only a 1/2", which is nearly nothing)

_________

A half inch is not "nearly nothing". Most men don't lose more than that from the time they get out of bed until the end of the night, much less a couple of hours. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it would be highly unusual. There's no way Hogan's WCW cowboy boots were giving him a two inch boost. I've seen some from his 80s run that didn't give him very much of a lift.

I had verified that within just a couple of hours my height was dropping down to around 6'6 & 1/4" (that's only a 1/2", which is nearly nothing). The photo op with Cena was scheduled to start at 2:25 PM that day with VIPs going in first. I don't pay for VIP passes so it was much later after standing in line. Most likely around 3:15 to 3:30 at the earliest since they seldom start on schedule.

A normal cowboy boot will not have less than about a 2" heel. Hogan may have had some boots without the standard heel, but I've never seen him wearing them. I haven't really looked either though.

I do agree that the comparison of photos is not to be taken as gospel. There are too many variables to be completely accurate, but they do make it fun.

The company i work for does alot of work at the nxt/wwe performance center thats outside orlando we are there atleast 2 times a week i have met rollins as well as other wrestlers and i can give you a pretty accurate guess on heights i can tell you that wwe does not allow the wrestlers to wear lifts because of injuries they can cause but they do design the footwear for the wrestlers and add thick soles to the boots. Reigns wears standard boots rollins has a 2" boost so hes roughly around 6'2.75 to 6'3 in gear they add 3.5" to sheamus in footwear and 1.75 to the big show as well as others hogans probably 6'4 without shoes maybe more i really am not sure but i am sure on rollins because i have personally worked on the machine they have that tools the soles in shoes hes hitting 6'3 or damn close and cena is 6'1.5 in shoes no insoles

Ali Baba told me his morning height is 6'6.75". If that pic with Cena is in the afternoon, he would have still been 6'6.5" minimum.



Maybe Ali can clear this up, I thought he said 6´6.75" out of bed. For sure he said 6´6"flat and sometimes slightly under for his low.

I don´t think he keeps that much height over the day, afternoon is pretty near low height, if hes 6´6" flat evening he´s not over 6´6.25" afternoon.
We lose 50% of the morning "bonus"gap during the first hour on feet.

Don´t forget Hogan is in cowboyboots so Ali still has footwear disadvantage.
I don´t think Hogan lost more than 2 inches from peak till now Click Here

_________

He told me he loses at least .5" by the early afternoon, but I don't believe that. The average man loses about .5" from the time they wake up till the time they go to bed. There's no reason a non-obese healthy man with a strong back should shrink more than .5" by night, even if they are taller than average. The pic with him and Cena may not have even been at night and he looks closer to 6'7" with 6'0.5" Cena. I see a 6.5" difference. Also, Hogan's posture is not equal to Baba. Baba couldn't make himself taller if he tried. Hogan could stretch out and become virtually identical in height with Baba.

Regarding footwear, I doubt Hogan would have much of an advantage in cowboy boots if Baba was wearing those thick sneakers I've seen him wear. The heel in Hogan's cowboy boots varied from boot to boot. Some only gave him like 1.5" of boost. Lastly, it is important to realize that these comparison pics are not gospel. They are interesting and probably very close to the truth, but they are not 100% accurate; especially ones like the Baba/Cena/Hogan/T one.
miko says on 27/Dec/14
Hulk had a staredown with 6'1/6'1.5 Seth Rollins and RAW and depending on the angle looked anywhere from 1.5/2.5' taller. The longer shot looked over 2 inches while the close up looked 1.5'.

In other words Hulk was looking around 6'3, but Rollins may have had a small footwear advantage.

Hogan isn´t losing more height than Ali from posture, Mr. T would come up any closer to Cena than what I´ve put him at, probably even shorter in real life.

AliBaba said he measured 6´5.75"-6´6" flat evening, and I talk about evening height for Hogan too.

I think he could have been 6-6 possibly a weak 6-7 but 6-8 barefeet is stretching it i can buy he has lost height but from looking at him most of his loss i say 80% is in posture he may have lost 1 to 2 in in age and injuries but thats probably it imo hes still standing 6-4.5 or a little more now at full stretch im a touch over 6-4 in boots and he was taller than me standing up by a smig i looked at a site that this guy has talking about he was 6-8 and maybe in boots he was early on and the whole thing about his mom measuring him that i read could be true but her being shorter her pencil would be angling up to make the mark so i think 6-6 or a tab more is accurate but the 6-3 current is not hes bigger.

What does it show? It shows that Hogan was way taller than Wendy, who is 5'11" barefoot minumum and is wearing 3 inch heels! He has her at 6'2" with her heels on by 4-5 inches with his 1 inch sneakers on. So guess what geniuses, that makes him 6'5" barefoot like he says, and over 6'6" in his sneakers. Difference here was that he almost stood up straight being next to Kareem. Also ,as i and many others have stated numerous times it also shows that Kareem is at least 7'3" still. Now go on your crusade and make all sorts of bogus comparisoms and use pictures with her in poor posture or at an altered angle to try and get her height down to 5"8" to keep your rediculous low height estimates going LOL.

Yet, at the time of that picture, Hogan was for a 100% fact shorter than 6'4.25" max Troy Aikman by at least half an inch and Hogan only claimed 6'4" for himself!LOL He still only claims to be 6'4/6'4.5" and often looks shorter.

Hogan was the same height as 6'2"-6'2.5" The Rock 13 years ago!! At best he was marginally taller than him at MAX 6'3". NOW, in the last 13 years Hogan's body has deteriorated even more so on him. He's had countless more surgeries on his knees, back, neck and hips. Its a miracle he can still stand today. He's somewhere between 6'2" and 6'3" today at best. Was a solid 6'6" at his peak (had 1" on 6'5" Hilbilly Jim, who btw had 2" on him a decade ago, had 1" on 6'5" Jake Roberts, 2" on 6'4" Big Bossman, 2" on 6'4" King Kong Bundy, 2" on 6'4" Buster Douglas, was 1" shorter than 6'7" Big John Studd, etc, etc, etc...

Hogan always fell a little short of the true 6'6 guys, which makes sense as he was never that tall IMO.

Ok, Rocky's height was never billed at all until the very last Rocky vs Mason Dixon ! When he was finally billed @ 5'11"...Only Rocky's weight was announced in the first Five Movies...never his height. Thunderlips was billed @ basically 6'11" & 390 lbs. Rumor is that this billing was given to Thunderlips because it was Andre's TRUE size in 1975 vs Chuck Wepner. Andre was billed @ "well over seven feet" & 440 lbs that night. But, word is his true barefoot height & stripped down body weight for that match was 6'11" & 390 lbs...so, Stallone who's a nut about boxing history & odd facts decided to use those measurements. 6'11" to 7'0" is obvious the true height of Andre...but, who all on her believes that in 1974-1975 that Andre's true body weight was 390-400 lbs?? The rumor is that Andre had been wresting at 415-420 lbs...but lost like 25-30 lbs for that match to be quicker on his feet vs a pro boxer.

Tenta was listed as about 6'6" in sumo wrestling. Hogan was not taller than Tenta in every single other comparison. At best they were the same height, but Tenta was likely marginally taller; maybe .5" at the most. Hogan in his prime was 6'5.5" to 6'6" although his lift situation is questionable to me. Today, I think he may be 6'4", but is likely around 6'3.5".

Click Here Hogan several inches shorter than John Tenta. I’ll let you figure out why your picture can't prove anyone's height nor can mine.

The reality is that Hogan was close to but not quite Tenta’s height even with Hogan’s 0.5” or so footwear advantage here. Click Here In comparable footwear, Tenta in WCW had close to a full head size on Gene Okerlund whereas Hogan never did. Tenta also had a larger head than Hogan.

Frank, Hogan was standing on a platform in the staredown with Stallone which is obvious when you look at the boots Click Here Leaving aside Hogan's footwear advantage, the bottom of Hogan's soles are higher than the tops of Stallone's boots above the feet. IIRC Rocky was billed at 6'1" and Thunderlips at nearly 7 feet so Stallone wanted to look as small as he could with Hogan.

As for his peak height? Well, watch Rocky 3. Stallone (5'9) is not as tall as Hogan's shoulder! Hogan is close to being a foot taller than Stallone. I'd say it's quite likely he was 6'7 at his peak

You're quite the observant one. Click Here Hogan's closer to the camera too and with the footwear advantage as the bottom photo shows. Hogan must have borrowed one of Andre's boxes for the stare down with Stallone. Click Here

Hogan was shorter than 6'6" John Studd and at least 2 inches shorter than Sid Eudy so 6'6" peak is impossible.

___________

6'6" is impossible? What a joke. He was not at least 2" shorter than Sid and you don't know Studd wasn't 6'7". You also don't know either guy's lift situation. I'm not convinced both Studd and Hogan didn't wear lifts as Jesse Ventura and others have stated.

Yep, Hogan had a 1" advantage in footwear over Ali....making actually 3" to 3.25" taller. Ali: 6'2 5/8" barefoot at age 22....peak Hogan 6'5.5" to 6'5.75". Ali by 1985 was down to about 6'2.25" so ...that puts 31year old Hulk Hogan @ 6'5.5"

There are many pictures of Hogan with Ali, and Ali was minimum 6'2" tall so lets not even attempt to try to lower his height ok. Hogan has Ali by at least 5-6 inches every time and that is without cowboy boots. Here is a really good one.
Click Here

The only thing I disagree with is the 5-6 inches. Think he was strong 6'6 and a hair under 6''7 peak. Meaning early to mid 1980s. I feel as if by Late 90's his body changes dramatically as in the nwo days and his decline already began

@Danimal
you have lost your mind. It is clear you have not met him. And if you say you have you sir are a liar or cant judge height worth a damn. Dudes 6'4+ today im over 6'4" measured by the U.S. Marine Corp and they do not round up or down and when i met him he had flip flops on and when he stood up he edged me out. So say im lying i do not care he has not seen 6'2" since he was a young teen you should meet him and shut you bull**** talk up you keep talking out of your ass and its pathetic.
Chris says on 4/Dec/14
Look at pictures of Hogan with Hillbilly Jim in the 1970s (who is listed as 6'5.5 on this site). Hogan has at least an inch on him. He's quite obviously taller. It should be plainly obvious that Hogan was AT LEAST 6'6 at his peak. I think he probably was 6'7 as he claims

Watch Hogan and Dennis Rodman in the 1990s in WCW. Hogan's not much short than him. Rodman (6'7) maybe has 1.5 inches on Hogan. So, even in his 40s, Hogan was at least 6'5

Gotta tell you guys. My brothers father in law was a strong 6'6 man. When he got into his late 40s he had a very serious spine problem complete very similar to hulks. He lost a significant amount of height by his early 50's. The guy was basically disabled. Couldn't walk well or stand. Had no posture or ability to stand tall. He had multiple spinal surgeries and fusions and is still no where near how tall he was but is about 2 inches shy. Like hogan like Arnold like roddy piper spine surgeries to men into the second half of there life dooms day for height. I couldn't believe how different my brothers father in law looked in every aspect spread out over just 5 years

@Chuck
when you met him what would you guess his height was compared to yours if he stood straight as well as his leaning posture?

well I'm only 5' 8" but he had a full head on me easily. As far as his posture goes you have to remember this is just before he had the surgery that straightened his spine somewhat. The man was in obvious pain at the time.
RP says on 30/Nov/14
SR112 is exactly right... The top of that masonry block that Hogan's head is near is 80.75" or 6'8.75"...Hogan's head minus the fluff of hair sticking up appears to be about 1" shy of that mark ?? Which makes perfect sense. That would make him 6'7.75" in his 2" cowboy boots & 6'5.75" barefoot in his 30 's,,, which must of us claim. Another is obvious when you put Hogan next to 8" masonry blocks is thus...Hogan had a massive head & face!
RP says on 30/Nov/14
Yes, Luger had huge cowboy boots that night. Watch the YouTube. He had at least 0.75" footwear advantage on Hogan. Assuming Hogan is wearing lifts in his boots. But, Hogan wearing lifts in his wrestling boots is pretty much a Total BS rumor. In equal footwear hogan had Luger by 2"...and by the NWO era it was down to 1.5" difference.
RP says on 30/Nov/14
Hogan is in his 2" cowboy boots in that pic with Pete Rose. Rose in his prime was measured @ 5'10.75" barefoot & played @ 182-195 lbs. In this pic with Hogan he is 46 years old. And Hogan has a 1" inch advantage in footwear.

Haha downgrading a peak Rock to 6'2.5 now? Madness. Rock and Luger would have been eye to eye in a staredown.

Also... with 6'4.75 Jordan... Click Here

Sting still looks close to 6'2, so Hulk is looking a bit over 6'3 there which seems about right. Whether he could stretch any taller is debatable.

I think he would measure somewhere between 6'3 and 6'3.5 today in full chest out military posture.

Also, Luger was in cowboy boots. Hogan looked about 2" taller than 6'3" Luger when Luger had the footwear and posture advantage. Hogan must have been about 6'5.5" in 1995.

I don't believe the Rock was 6'2.5" max. I think he was around 6'3.5" in the early 2000s and is still at least 6'3". Hogan, according to himself, was 6'4" in the early 2000s at the start of Hogan Knows Best. I believe him.

Click Here Pete Rose was listed at 5’11” in baseball. Having met several baseball players over the years, the listed heights are almost always inflated by 1 inch and often 2 inches, especially for the more recent players. I think Rose was at least 5’10” peak height though. Hogan’s going to be wearing cowboy boots given his blue jeans (and the fact that he never left home without them during the 1980s and early 1990s). Slight camera advantage for Hogan as well.

Have you met Hulk Hogan? Have you talked to him or stood next to him without shoes on? How tall are you? Here is what i expect your answers to be! No you havent met him, talked to him or even seen him without shoes and you are probably short and mad because you have to look up at the 5'5" markings on the door of any handy way when you walk in.why dont you go buy some platform shoes so you can get to 6' go to clearwater Fl and try and meet the man yourself then all your nonsense will stop. Im over 6'4" and he was taller than me bottom line. That is a fact not a statement. Stop your hating you should not give a opinion unless you can say that you stood 2' infront of the man and if you ever do meet him and keep saying he is shorter than he really is you are just a flat out liar.

I have, on Dec 15 2010 at a hospital in Tampa FL when Hogan walked in the door of the hospital to have one of his many back surgeries. I shook his hand (his hands are huge BTW) and congratulated him on his wedding the day before. His wife Jennifer was with him.

Personally, I tend to think that Kevin Love's listed barefoot height of 6'7.75" is probably accurate.

Kevin Love looks to be close in height to former NBA player Mychal Thompson. Though, Thompson does look to be slightly taller.... half an inch or so, maybe a little more.

Prove it. Harris measured 6'4.75" barefoot at age 22
Click Here

Kevin Love played center at UCLA and was listed at 6'10" there as well. He thought he would end up being a center in the NBA and kept the 6'10" listing. Love even discussed the possibility of hopefully growing some more when his disappointing draft measurement came out. Derrick Williams measured 6'7.25" barefoot the same year as this picture. Click Here Love is 23 here. Love may have grown a tad more since the 2008 draft but he's shorter than 6'8.5" measured Blake Griffin. Like several players do, Love probably wore some extra chunky shoes to increase his in-shoes draft measurement but I doubt he ever played in those given the likelihood of ankle injuries. Hogan's Nike shoes are not exactly thin-soled so Love and harris are not going to have a footwear advantage.

Sorry, didn't look into Kevin Love's height before posting that (assumed the official listing was accurate since it's the NBA not WWE) but Kevin Love is more like 6'8"-6'9" (measured 6'7.75" at 19 years old but usually people that tall do grow even more until like 21 or so)

____________

Great point. I doubt a guy listed at 6'10" by the NBA is 6'7'75". Does that actually make sense to anyone? Obviously, he is at least 6'8". Not that his pic with Hogan is even a valid comparison. But, I guess if you're biased and want Hogan to look at short as possible in any given situation no matter the year than sure...

I was watching a battle royal from WM2, where Andre the giant won. Ed "too tall" Jones was in that match and he was nowhere near the height of Andre, he was at least 6 inches shorter. Everywhere has Jones at 6'9", and he was not old or had lost height at this point - so explain then folks how you can ever expect to be taken seriously when you try to say a 7'2-3" giant was only 6'10"?

_____________

How can you expect to be taken seriously when you blatantly lie? There is no point at which to compare Andre and Jones. Andre is on video in 1971 claiming to be 7'0.25". According to Andre, he stopped growing at 24 or 1970; so you can forget about anything above 7'0.25" for him and that is a fact. It was straight from the mouth of Andre himself.

If we are going to post pics of Randy Savage & compare his height to others? Then please do not use pics of him from his interview sessions!! Randy was always scrunching, flexing & bending his knees during his interviews!! How about posting some in ring & out of the ring stare down or side by side erect posture pics with other wrestlers of known height. The Ultimate Warrior during his WCW mid 90's feud vs Macho Man was only 1.5" taller. Randy was 2" taller than Steamboat, Randy was always at least 1" taller than Flair, Peak Randy even had about a 0.5" on Brett Hart. Peak Randy looked the exact same height has Vince McMahon many many times in the mid 80's. He was only 1.5" shorter than both Jesse Ventura & Brutus Beefcake. He had Greg Valentine by 2"! Has was only 1.5" shorter Than The Million Dollar Man! Many, many ...many pics of Hogan & Savage face to face from 1985-1990 with Savage looking EXACTLY 5" shorter! Danimal, you are usely spot on ..however, you're wrong on this one Bro. I meet the Man face to face @ The Roanoke Civic Center in the Summer of 1997 (Savage was 44 years old)...I'm 5'11" barefoot & he was 1" to 1.25" taller than me. Unless he wore lifts...he was a barefoot 6'0.25"...met the man again in Greenville, SC in December 2000 (Randy had just turned 48) and he was looking 5'11.75" at this point in his life...Peak Randy Savage 6'0.25" to 6'0.5"....Randy by his late 40's to early 50's was 5'11.75"!

Also, your supposedly 6'6-7" Studd was the same height as Jones, and Hogan who many of you claim was never over 6'5" was within an inch or two of Jones. Check out the match for yourselves, it's on the WWE network which is free all month so no excuses.

Too Tall Jones wasn't in that match. He was a ringside referee and never got in that ring. He only shared one scene with Andre and that's when Andre walked to the ring. There's no moment where you could accurately estimate the height difference as Jones is 10 feet further from the camera.
Hogan wasn't in that match either, or even in the same building. So how you can claim he was within an inch or two of Jones is beyond me.
There's not really a good scene with Studd & Jones either, but Wrestlemania 2 does feature a "revealing" segment between Studd and NFL-player Bill Fralic.

at his peak, there's just no way hogan was under 6'6. he was a massive guy and still is, but check out the video of him wrestling andre in 1980 at shea. andre was a 7 footer and there's no amazingly noticeable difference to the men, both are just massive with andre having more girth. i always thought hogan was around 6'8 at his prime, maybe 6'9 in wrestling boots. at that height, who the hell cares. he's massive inches are irrelevant past 6'3

Randy was 5'11" peak Dicksock. Never towered over Mean Gene in normal footwear. In fact, I saw early listings of him where he was billed at 5'11". Piper had about 2" on him.

Peak Randy Poffo "Savage" was a barefoot 6'0.5" or
6'0.25" he was listed at 6'1" during his minor league baseball career in the 1970's. However, his barefoot height was closer to 6'0.5" most of his career. WWF billed him @ 6'2"...WCW billed him @ 6'1" later in his career. At the end of his career in his late 40's & early 50's, Randy had settled to. 5'11.75"...so, peak Macho Man: 6'0.5" & late career Macho Man: 5'11.75"

@height182
I am 6'4.75 measured by the U.S. Marine Corp. As well as the VA Hospital in Gainesville Fl and thats barefoot no rounding or adding it is what it is! I met the guy a month or so ago before i left for deployment and we where both in flip flops mine where vans his where dollar tree flops and i talked with him as did my wife and kids for over 15 minutes he is very approachable and was kind enough to take pics with me and my kids. Just standing there talking he does not stand straight he leans and bends his knees so 6'3.5 to 6'4.5 is a fair height as for just standing with super horrible posture but he adjusted his posture a few times and stood straight and was taller than me not by much but enough to see so 6'5.25 to 6'5.5 is his out of bed stretched out height i would put my pension on it. Hes a huge man i am not small im fit and battle field built but he makes me look small. I have a sniper friend who is 6'5.5 who i workout with and do cardio with when we are on shift change or yard call and him and hogan are dead even standing with me height wise mass wise no comparision. Rob you need to meet him face to face so you can change his 6'3" listing. When i see that i feel like my comments are looked at as lies and as a U.S. soldier a father and a man of God i do not lie!
