Peak height was 6ft 6in (198 cm)
American Wrestler and actor. In Feb 2005 Allure he said: "I used to be 6ft 7, but after knee, neck and back surgeries I'm now about 6ft 4". In 2011 he repeated in an interview he was 6ft 7 barefoot but lost height and was 6ft 4, but now after multiple back surgeries believes he is 6ft 5 again.

Hogan struggled with 6'4 in his peak, as we can see here next to 6'4 Jimbo Covert and 6'2 Otis Wilson Click Here

Straightahead, I never insulted you. I said an idiot would try and say Hogan never lost much height. Are you that person??? I never said you were, I addressed you directly about Salming, he never had the surgeries or injuries Hogan has. Wrestlers who have long careers and do lots of roids and heavy lifting loose tremendous height after 40, Superstar was another. Sorry your feelings got hurt, read the posts and understand them. You have to have thick skin to be on here.

6'5.5" Next to a 6'2.5" Ali. I see 3 inches maybe a fraction more. He was a solid 6'5 at peak just as guys his size claimed. Tiny Lister (also 6'5) claims that Hogan was the same. Nash claimed he was looking at the top of Hogan's head, so at least 4 inches - 6'9.5" peak Nash > 6'5 range Hogan.
bigmike74 said on 10/Feb/16
I have done internet searches of that photo shoot and there are pictures that show full body shots with Hogan and Ali as well as the others on the front row. Hogan was barefoot and in shorts standing on a box with Ali. Straightahead you are making yourself look very uneducated and like a height hater.

Anyone posting a peak Hogan anything under 6'5 is just trolling. Even at 6'5 he would have to be wearing internal lifts because he was taller than several 6'5" guys in his ring boots.
Boss said on 10/Feb/16
Hogan is wearing wrestling boots not cowboy boots and looks 6'6 even if Ali was down to 6'2 at this point.
Straightahead said on 9/Feb/16
Rob why do you allowed thse insults from RYAN11?

Ryan, no one cares about your cry excuses when it comes to Hogan so go and cry somewhere else, and Salming had 100's of more surgeries than what Hogan ever had. Such as legs, hips, back, etc. But no height loss from it!
Alex said on 9/Feb/16
Never thought Hogan was 203 cm, neither during his prime. Most probably he was 196-197 cm, he always looked shorter next to Kevin Nash (206 cm). Now, he should be 191 cm. His height lost is tremendous, he probably lost like a good 5 cm in all these years. Surely his back problems are the main cause.
bigmike74 said on 8/Feb/16
The Ali picture shows his peak height.
Nice picture.
James B said on 8/Feb/16
But is he wearing wrestling boots with Ali?
RYAN11 said on 8/Feb/16
Boss, that picture of Hogan with Ali is not useful except to say Hogan would have a couple more inches on him if both were standing straight. Ali is standing straight up, but anyone can easily see Hogan's legs in the back ground are spread wide and bent which would lower him considerably. When in the ring Hogan was over a half foot taller in his wrestling boots.
Straightahead said on 8/Feb/16
Boss said on 6/Feb/16
Hogan with 6'2,5" Muhammad Ali. Peak Hogan looks 6'6 range with Ali.

Why do you asume that a 40+ year old Ali still was 6'2 1/2? he could very well been down to UNDER 6'2 and Hogan was wearing cowboy boots as usually, thats 100% for sure. Its kinda amazing, as soon Hogan doesnt seems to be tall enough = height loss excuses (even in his 30's LOL) But when comparing SOMEONE ELSE to Hogan, those ppl never shrunk?!
Straightahead said on 8/Feb/16
Actually one man gang always looked 6'3 range, forget anything thats even close to 6'6
RYAN11 said on 7/Feb/16
Straightahead, Borje Salmon? Are you frigging kidding me lol.. Salming for those on here if they don't know was a great Swedish born NHL defenceman for the Leafs. He had surgery to put over 100 stiches in his face after getting cut by a skate blade. He never did steroids, lifted heavy weights for years, nor did he take the kind of spinal damage landing on your tailbone 600 times a year or getting slammed does. Hogan has had multiple surgeries where they shaved off bone from his knee and hip joints before getting his hips and knees replaced. He also had vertibrae removed from his back before getting spinal fusion surgery. As Big Mike points out, only a complete idiot would say you don't loose at least 3-4 inches of height from all that damage, age and procedures. Hogan was well over six and a half feet tall barefoot in his 20's, now 6' 4" but nothing less. His bent knees and poor posture is what makes him appear shorter and it's just that simple.

hogan?

he was noticeably (as in a couple of inches) taller than steve austin at mania 30. i met austin a number of times and he is for sure taller than i am and i was measured 180.5cm barefoot by my doctor last summer so the only way hogan is weak 6'1 is if he was wearing lifts with austin or on his tiptoes...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Feb/16
He claimed 6ft4½ recently on Chris Jericho's podcast and also said that he used to be 6ft7
Editor Rob: he's claiming to be literally almost the same height as joe manganiello. I think it is a bit of a stretch really. But then, if he was measured in sneakers he may well have got that mark.

@Straightahead
It makes a big difference comparing photos and television clips to a face to face meeting. Your statement in tegards to fusions is incorrect. I work as a life flight EMT and and compression or removal or even shaving of set bone will degrade your height that is a fact that any Surgeon or Orthopaedic Doctor will tell you. I play cards every other week with 2 specialists and both have said this to be true. Decompression of the spine or neck is the same as airing up a tire. Fully aired it is firm deflated it is smaller the Human body is no different. So again if you have access to the literature you would know I'm right. As for my height observation a 6-2 man in shoes would not look over me at 6-1 in shoes as he did. He was atleast 2.5 to 3 inches taller so 6-3.5 barefoot is the minimum he could be now I'm leaning towards 6-4. I strongly suggest you do your research before spouting non fact based opinions.
bigmike74 said on 3/Feb/16
To All.
My observation is based on my height. Not pictures or hearsay. He is absolutely not 6-2 anything under
6-3.5 now is just bad estimating skills or inappropriate ignorance on the posters behalf. I could see how a 6-3 listing could be observed due to how Hogan stands but he is taller. I thought 6-4 but nothing under 6-3.5 now and 6-6 prime.
Boss said on 3/Feb/16
Studd was 41 years old with Barry and Studd has his head tilted down. Studd, considering his size and 20 years of pro wrestling would not be at his peak height with Barry.

straightahead said on 3/Feb/16
bigmike74 no i havent, but i dont understand what differences it would make? ppl doesnt grow (or shrink) just because we met them... and theres some posters in here who has met Bulldog (Davey Smith) and while some of them gives him 5'9, others give him 5'10 or even close to 5'11. So as we can see, how tall someone appears in YOURS eyes is your opinion only and the same man can appear much taller, or shorter, for someone else. And please dont go there with those height-loss-surgery-excuses. Hockey player Borje Salming have had 100's of more surgeries than Hogan from top to toe but havent lost any noticable height at all, and neither has Hogan.

JT and straightahead seem to be the only people that have good sense and observation skills on this forum. I mean Rick Barry was probably 6'6" NBA listings are always inflated. Studd is OBVIOUSLY shorter - so if we are being generous we will give him 6'5" - so as Steve pointed out below - Hogan was 1.5" shorter than Studd so that's a 6'3.5" peak Hogan. Then add into the equation what bigmike74 said with his medical expertise about spinal surgery - you've got a 6'2" Hogan today!
_____________________________________________-

Again buddy, you are making guesses and assumptions on people you have never seen. You may think my observation skills aren't very good, but I know I saw Hogan around 1980 when he was in the AWA standing 2 or 3 feet away, I could see he was taller than my Grandfather who was still over 6'4" at the time. No pictures or videos with weird angles, lighting or hocus pocus, or any other unknowns, to try to take into consideration, or guess about. Just plain old seeing two people in person standing close to each other and saying, yep that one is taller than the other. Peak Hogan was between 6'5" and 6'5.5" in my opinion. Studd to me never really appeared a whole lot taller than Hogan. My guess is Studd would have been 6'6" to 6'6.5", but that is just a guess as I have never seen Studd in person.
James B said on 2/Feb/16
Yeah 6'6 is fine for studd judging how he looks with rick
Dustin said on 2/Feb/16
In the Rick Barry pic, you can't see the footwear and his hat makes it hard to tell where the top of his head is. To many variables to make an accurate assessment. In the Fralic promo, a 6'4.75" Fralic with even 1/2 footwear looked almost a full inch shooter than Studd. 6'7" for studd seems right to me. He was bigger than a prime Hogan too by at least one inch
dustin said on 2/Feb/16
I have a question and a request... and i am sure this has already been brought up, but why is there not a Big John Studd page? there is so much discussion on the Hogan,Andre, Sid and every other wrestlers page. I think his height discussion would be one of the more debatable ones. I request a Big John Studd Celebheights page!!!!!!!!

Can't be this pic Click Here Studd’s closer to the camera and a good inch shorter than 6’7” Rick Barry. Where’s the pic showing them to be the same height?
bigmike74 said on 1/Feb/16
@straightahead have you met Hogan? I have and it looks like from this thread others have as well. Hogan does not appear to be his tallest or prime height at this point. With that being said your 6-4 prime theory is complete nonsense he's 6-3.5 to 6-4 now and with the massive damage his body has undertook with back surgeries, hip surgeries and neck surgeries there is no way he is still prime the man has had fusions done if you are ignorant to what that is it's when they remove and fuse your spine. So removing vertebra 3 seperate times will drop you down a good 1 - 1.5 to 2 inches and then the poor posture that comes with hip replacement will drop you down to so minimum 2 inches more like 3 of list height. Please try again your statement is asinine. Cheers
Steve said on 31/Jan/16
Studd at 6'5 is impossible. Hogan was at least 6'5.25, that's an absolute minimum. Studd had at least 1.5 inches on Hogan. Studd would be at least 6'6 1/2 at his peak, if not 6'7. So those who put Studd at 6'5 peak are dreaming and need to wake up!
straightahead said on 31/Jan/16
Here we go again with the "6'4 bossman" fantasies. Face the fact instead that he was shorther than Ottman, who was 6'3 tops; Click Here

It getting ridiculous even to discuss this since some ppl in here obviously cannot wake up from dreamland...

Bossman 6'2 1/2
Ottman 6'3
Hogan 6'4
straightahead said on 29/Jan/16
denali, wouldnt it make more sense if Studd was the one on his tip toes? but logic suggests, since we never can see their footwear we must asume neither was. However, Fralic measured up better to Studd than what a peak Hogan ever did. 6'4 for Hogan and 6'4 1/2 for Fralic is right on!
just because said on 28/Jan/16
er4smiths said on 23/Jan/16
weekly wake up call from dreamland guys - Studd was 6'5" tops. He was eye to eye with 6'4 Bill Fralic and noticeably shorter than 6'7" Rick Barry. NBA heights are inflated so Barry could be 6'6". Point is AGAIN that WWE inflates heights and weights. I read an article the other day where it talked about CM Punk losing 3" and 50lbs when joining UFC. The point is they didn't inflate his stats.
Hulk Hogan is MUCH shorter than Peyton Manning, Joe D. and stacks up like a 6'2" guy at best standing next to the likes of Barry Sanders, Todd Chrisley, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Arnold S. and the list goes on and on

Studd had an inch on fralic and that was with fralic standing at his tallest, the pic i saw with studd and barry they where the same height
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 28/Jan/16
Bossman looks solid 6´4" in JT´s comparison, wich is pretty spot on - no indication for chunky footwear there
Bossman also looked 6´4" next to 6´4" Tugboat
Maybe he lost a bit height later because he didn´t look much over 6´3" next to John Tenta in WCW

Studd always looked a solid 1" up to 1.5" taller than Hogan, about a half inch shorter than 6´6.75"-6´7" Sid Eudy

Bill Fralic was 6'5" & 285-288 lbs Barry was a legit 6'7"...many NBA players do have heights listed in their shoes ...however, many have their accurate barefoot heights listed as well...especially from 1960-1980...majority of those NBA heights were very accurate! Studd & Barry where within a 1/4" of each other. Peak Studd was 6'7"...when he got older & his weigh jumped from 300 to 350 lbs...it appears he's body settled into about 6'6.5"...Studd in the late 80's to early 90's had 1.5" on 6'5" Fralic...close to 2" when Bill wasn't trying to tip toe!!! Studd had 2.5" to 2.75" on 6'4" Christopher Reeves when both had on equal footwear "Tuxedo dress shoes"!!! In the 1970's Ernie Ladd never EVER had Studd by more than inch...in any footwear at anytime. Ladd was 6'8" & change barefoot @ his peak...and he was within a 1/4" of 6'7" Barry. For anyone to try & say Big John was ever anything less than 6'6.5" is just moronic!

Vegas- Jake though still looks taller than DDP if you google pics of the 2 together and I doubt Diamond Dallas Page is under 6'3.5 today given how he measured up him next to editor rob.

james, meltzer has said many times that lister was actually 6'4. i didn't think it was important to bring that up but remember lister didn't look 6'5 next to 5'8 mamun a couple of years ago. regarding roberts, personally i don't think he was more than 6'4. he was shorter than 6'5 fan i met a decade ago and same height as randy orton despite having footwear advantage. jake didn't look 6'5 barefoot next to paul bearer in 1991 as el diablo either

stud in his prime was 6.7.5. to 6-8he told me studd played basketball in high school in butler. my co worker lifted weights with him in butler pa.and was a mountain of a man in the 70's.that makes Hogan 6.6- 6.7. peak, now just under 6-4.

Zeus "Tom Lister" is wearing 1.75" healed (X-Element) motorcycle logger boots in the pic from Survivor Series. Hogan & Lister were pretty much the exact same height. Lister there, is about a 1/2" inch taller...with a 1/2" footwear advantage.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 21/Jan/16
correction-mixed something wrong
Hogan wasn´t in cowboyboots, he was in ~1inch trainers in the pic I posted, Listers boots have a close up when he walks towards Hogan in the movie

So Hogan at 6´5.25" peak is still pretty good, 6´6" out of bed
James B said on 21/Jan/16
Oh yeah Vegas off topic but I have Jake the snake at 6'4.5 peak

Would you agree? Or do you think he was a full 6'5?

....

in the "no holds barred" movie lister was wearing platforms but he was noticeably taller than hogan in that

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Lister in platformboots was noticable taller than Hogan in cowboyboots Click Here

Lister himself said he and Hogan were legit 6´5" filming the movie and that the bigboots they gave him boosted him to 6´7"

so Lister was probably 6´7"-6´7.5" in them, wich results in a 6´6"-6´6.5" Hogan in ~ 1.5" cowboyboots - they didn´t look like the big heeled
he wore during the eighties

Click Here 1:36 imo Hogans blue movie wrestlingboots don´t look as chunky as the yellow ones at Survivor Series....
Zeus looked 2 inches taller during the inring staredown in the movie...

Only way all adds up logical is either Lister didn´t stand as tall as he could at the Survivorseries staredown or Hogan had inside lift in his yellow boots.
bigmike74 said on 21/Jan/16
Met Hulk last week at a Japanese steak house in Clear Water Beach super nice guy and for a old guy hes swole. I am a little over 6, 1 and in dress shoes probably close to 6,3 which is what i had on that evening but from the look of him i would guess 6,5 in shoes maybe a hair taller i didn't get pictures because of all the people around but looking him eye to eye he can't be under 6,3 1/2 barefoot i was thinking probably closer to 6,4 he does slouch badly but still a huge man i definitely could see a 6,6 prime but 6,3 flat i just can't see because he had low top shoes on you can't hide lifts in them with shorts

@ John; My citing Hogan's leg length had nothing to do with proving he or anyone with long legs is tall, but that long legs can "look" less bulky than shorter legs even if they are the same or even more in diameter

James B - He was slightly taller than the 6'5" Lister while Tiny was wearing boots with 4 inch soles to boost him up to Hogan height. In other words if some if you couldnt follow, Lister had a 2 inch footwear advantage over Hogan at least, so that is the only reason a 6'5" Lister was eye to eye with the then 6'7" Hogan. It's not hard to figure out or easily explain, same as the 6'7" Sid looking 2 inches taller than men like Hogan who were the same height, Sid's boots had the extra thick heel which boosted him 2 inches more than normal wrestling boots. Just look back at him with the 6'8.5" Undertaker and Sid stood slightly taller in stare downs every time.

@Anonymous Just because you have longer legs than a person, it doesn't always mean that you're taller. Not everyone has the same torso/leg length ratio.
Anonymous1 said on 17/Jan/16
...I disagree about Hogan's legs. In the mid 80's, it seems like his legs were absolutely massive. He was also taller than the Rock, so his legs would look longer, and "look" less massive than the Rock's.

I don't make them lightly without very good proof.
RP said on 16/Jan/16
Straighahead...the Rock was 270-275 at his heaviest ...but, he is 6'2.75" to 6'3" "peak" barefoot...physical prime Hogan was 6'5.5"...hogan had larger arms, a bigger gut, and a thicker torso ...not really wider...but thicker ...1/3 of it was bloat...but none the less. Hogan's tbighs & glutes were much, much larger in the 1980's than they were post 1991. Hogan had to quickly jump off of hard core anabolic steroids in the summer of 1991. And lost 20 lbs Really, Really quick. ...and lost a lot of muscle density & over all muscle thickness from Summer 1991 to Spring 1992. Then in 1993, Hogan completely changed his diet & supplementation & leaned out big time. Dropping another 25 lbs. He mantained this leaner & healthier physique all through his 40's....by age 50, he started getting a gut & more bloated looking again. Mostly just do to his failing back & lower body preventing him from doing cardio.

Terry Bollea was 6'4" (at best) peak. PERIOD He is now 6'2". END OF DISCUSSION
large heels, lifts, thick soles, custom boots. smoke and mirrors, kayfabe, larger than life persona.
kids perspective. All of those things are clouding MOST people on this forums judgement.
There are WAY too many pics that prove this. 6'4" barefoot is TALL guys!! Add normal soled shoes
in the mix and you are over 6'5" and thick soles, lifts etc and you're over 6'6" - then add in WWF kayfabe
"larger than life" exaggeration and you're magically 6'8"
______________________________________

You like to make these statements, yet you've never seen the guy in person, I doubt you were even alive in the 70's and early 80s when Hogan was at his peak. I respect your opinion, but for you to think that you are so right, that there is no reason to discuss Hogans Height any further is delusional.
James B said on 16/Jan/16
Dustin- 6'3 is crazy for peak hogan I agree but 6'5.5 is not impossible.

Remember Hogan might have still been at his peak in the early 90s and he did look 1.5 inches shorter than 6'6.5 Sid who big boots boosting him to 6'7.
straightahead said on 16/Jan/16
No walking human on this earth past or present can lose 4 inches (he would be in a wheel chair) er4smiths is right. 6'4 peak is a matter of fact, however he might be more than 6'2 today, closer to 6'3 imo (a matter of opinion)
straightahead said on 15/Jan/16
Hogan never had the legs to reach 300 lbs, he might gave a 300+ impression in his peak but trust me, he never was. The Rock at his footballs days was about 275 lbs and he had HUGE legs and also a massive upper body, sure Hogan had a even slightly bigger upper body but his hips and legs were no were near as massive as The Rock, therefore i say Hogan weighed 270 tops, especially since his peak height was only 1 inch TOPS taller than Rocks.

I looked at alot of 1980's-1990 pictures of Hogan yesterday. In 1990 he looked as tall, if not a bit taller than 6'5" and some change John Tenta/Earthquake. He was considerably taller than guys that were in the 6'1'-6'3" range(Buster Douglas, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Belzar,) 6'6" peak height sounds about right to me. He was also about 1.5 shorter than Sid, which to me fits the 6'7" Sid with suspect boots. The talk of Hogan never being over 6'3" and never lost height is ridiculous.
er4smiths said on 15/Jan/16
Terry Bollea was 6'4" (at best) peak. PERIOD He is now 6'2". END OF DISCUSSION
large heels, lifts, thick soles, custom boots. smoke and mirrors, kayfabe, larger than life persona.
kids perspective. All of those things are clouding MOST people on this forums judgement.
There are WAY too many pics that prove this. 6'4" barefoot is TALL guys!! Add normal soled shoes
in the mix and you are over 6'5" and thick soles, lifts etc and you're over 6'6" - then add in WWF kayfabe
"larger than life" exaggeration and you're magically 6'8"
James B said on 15/Jan/16
I think a strong 6'5 peak makes more sense. I mean a full 3 inches is a lot to lose at only 62 cause even clint Eastwood did not lose that much when he was hogans age.

However if hogan really was 6'6 and he has indeed lost 3 inches then he is going to have serious problems with his health in the next 20 years (if he lives that long) if he keeps losing more height.

I think these are the problems that exceptionally tall people face as they age.
James B said on 14/Jan/16
I believe that Hogan was not a naturally large framed man. I think he worked very hard (or took substances) to get to the size he was back in the 1980s because if you look at him in wcw he actually looked quite slim. In the 2000s and today he looks heavier.
Canson said on 14/Jan/16
Was a solid 6'5" in the 80s. No more no less
Paul said on 14/Jan/16
6'5.5" in his younger days, 6'2.5" today. Looks no taller than Roman Reigns, (the guy who Hogan is standing next to) even when Hogan has those thick heeled sneakers, while Reigns has thin dress shoes.

Guys, Terry was indeed anywhere from 290-310 lbs from 1979-1989 !!! Fact!!! And was 6'5.5" in his physical prime. Just look how much larger Terry was in the ring beside of 6'3" & 250 lbs James "Buster" Douglas!! Buster in his prime fought @ 235-242 lbs...but in the off season was 250 plus...before he let himself go & eventually ended up well north of 300 lbs. Douglas who was a legit 6'3" was about 247-250 that night he reffed the Match With Hogan & Savage. Hogan had him by a solid 3" in height...now, I know Hogan more than likely had a 1/2" footwear advantage ...so, let's say it's 2.5" if both men were barefooted...he was also visibly an easy 50-60 lbs heavier than Douglas...just go back & look at the pics & youtubes of that match. This is by far the best judgement of Hogan's true Size in the late 80's...he was a legit 6'5" to 6'5.5" & 300 lbs that night next to the 6'3" & 250 lbs Douglas. And that was a 35, 36 year old Hogan...28-33 year old Hogan was even about 10-15 lbs heavier than He was at 34-37 years old. Fact! Fact! Fact!

So we are to believe that the biggest name in this business was billed lighter than his real weight? yeah good luck with that one! BTW Tyson was always listed 5'11 1/2 but his real height was 5'10 (according to himself) so i wouldnt use the listed 6'3 for Buster Douglas for a comparison... 6'1-6'2 is more likely. You clearly cant judge neither heights or weights.

6'4 and 270 lbs peak - EOD

_________________________________________________________________

For a while Hogan was billed at 6'8" and 320lbs. While weight can be hard to guess, I'd bet he was really in the 290-300 lb range during that time, and based on what I saw in 1980 he looked 6'5 to 6'5.5".
RYAN11 said on 12/Jan/16
So straightahead writes after his last post end of discussion, sorry pal but only the site moderator decides if a discussion ends and news flash, you are not him nor are you God as it would seem you believe lol. Why is it not possible they would bill Hogan lighter? He was 320 plus right up until the late eighties easily. As for your question why, think for a minute. If you want the guys like Bundy, Earthquake, Kamala etc to be the huge monsters that make Hogan seem superhuman defeating you cannot lost their actual weights. Hogan was 330, if you then announce Bundy at his true weight just above 400 the difference isn't so much. But when you have Bundy come out at 440, and then Gorilla tells you he must he almost 500 with them listing Hogan just above 300 it seems overwhelming! Hogan was 6'7" barefoot, I saw him back then and he was much taller then he is now. I met him in 2014, he was over 6'4" easily still then. He weighs just under 300 now, and his legs are way smaller than they were back then, and his arms are not nearly as bulky as well. As for the never had 24 inch arms stories, his arms are over 20 inches now, and he is over 60 years old so how can you not think he had 24 inch arms?? If some want to say he was closer to 6'6" like Rob then so be it, no point arguing over an inch. But these 6'3-4" peak and 260 lb posts are just plain ignorant and rediculous lol

Edmeister,
Just watched the '92 Royal Rumble. Berzerker & Hogan looked pretty close to the same height & weight. They are within a 1/2" of each other assuming equal footwear. I did Notice that Sid looked about a 1/2" to 3/4" taller than The Undertaker


___________________________________________________________________________________

UUhhmmm WHAT?? Where can you compare Sid to Undertaker in 1992 Royal Rumble or is that a typo.

In the 1992 msg battle royal beginning Sid confronts the Undertaker and Taker looks taller but is closer to the camera, Sid had no full 1.5" heels
I doubt he had footwear-advantage over Taker.

I did Notice that Sid looked about a 1/2" to 3/4" taller than The Undertaker ...but, Sid was in huge heeled boots. They looked to have a 1.5" thick lift on the back heel....which would make his total height boost 2.5" from barefoot height ... Taker's where the standard 1.25" back then. WWF/WWE was pushing Sid as the next new big Man back then tho! So, whenever they do that...that particular wrestler will always start wearing bigger healed footwear to be taller & give. Larger & more intimidating prescence in the ring & interviews. Heck, they even did that with Seth Rollins when he won the World Title. He wins the title, and the very next Monday Night RAW he's in footwear that give him an additional 1" boost in height from his former footwear.

With 6'3.25 Rock bossman does not look anything less than 6'5 here

Bossman was tops 1 inch taller than Sting(who claimed "almost 6'2" in a tv show) , and he was also a tad shorter than the 6'3 Ottman (Tugboat/Typhoon), add to this, that Bossman weared heeled boots, so he was about same height as the Rock - tops.


So you saying then bossman wore 3 inch heeled boots? I find that hard to believe.

@RP - you're living in an alternate kayfabe reality dude. Hulk was NEVER 6'5" and certainly never 300lbs.

Well, he might has been very close to 6'5 peak but indeed there was no way he was 300 lbs. A legit 300 lbs Hogan would had been billed to 330 or maybe even 350 but that wasnt the case like we all know, he was a legit 270 at the very most.

I'm 6'10" and I met Hogan in St.Louis many years ago, I can believe he was 6'6" to 6'7", I don't have much mass and look taller than I am......Hogan has mass so appears to be shorter than he really is at times.

Hogan certainly did not look 6'6 compared to Sid justice in the early 90s. Sid though I think did wear thicker boots than hogan

Hogan in the 70s 80s looks dramatically different then 90s and 2000. His entire stature and muscle bellies changed. Think this is to the advancement in steroids. Before 1990 looked massive and thick by the time he was NWO looked leaner and longer and slightly more athletic and even shorter then his 80s self.
Canson said on 26/Dec/15
He did an interview back in the 1990s where he corrected a reporter who said he was 6'7" and said he is actually 6'5". That was prob his peak height as well and he was very tall in the 80s. with all the injuries and poor posture today he looks smaller.

er4smiths, finally, a voice of reason. Yes, the Hulkster is, to anyone but an avid wrestling schmoe, no more than 6.2.5". The only place on this planet he was ever six foot six or seven was on a wrestling program, which is designed to draw in fans by exaggerating the heights/weights/biographies of the actors - oh,. sorry,. wrestlers. The Hulkster got rich going along with the kayfabe. It's called 'fleecing the sheep.' To anyone who actually believe the Hulkster is anything approaching even six three plus, examine the photo of the Hulkster with Peyton Manning. It really, really says it all.
Jj said on 18/Dec/15
Hogan looked the same height as 6ft 6 Scott hall in the wcw nwo days, and was slightly taller than 6ft 5 ddp in 97, so surely he was 6ft 6?
er4smiths said on 14/Dec/15
@risky6 I am 6'2" - just measured barefoot the other day. Plus in the ultimate scheme of things does half an inch make that much a difference in height? Not really. If you see a 5'10" guy standing next to a 5'10.5" guy you don't think wow that guys taller! Plus footwear DOES play a big part.
Why are you always so defensive dude?? Does Hulk Hogan's height or lack of it really bother you that badly to where you have to try and publicly ridicule other people because they disagree with you?? You say my opinion is crap because I haven't met him, and that you have met him so your
opinion is gospel. Well until you prove you've met him - what does that say to us? Hulk Hogan was never over 6'4" period. It's obvious. Way too many pictures that prove it. There are also TONS of pictures that prove he is no where near 6'4" now. If he is 6'2.5" I'd be really surprised.
Merry Christmas!

Gentlemen Ray Traylor was 6'3.5" !!! He also wore cowboy boots out of the ring a lot! Accept the fact that these guys in that business manipulated their footwear constently to appear larger & taller! 6'5.5" peak Hogan did everything he could to appear 6'7" or even 6'8" way back in the day! 7'0"-ish Andre did all he could to appear 7'4" on camera! 6'7"-ish Big John Studd did all he could to appear 6'10"! Just Kane! 6'2" HHH back in the day all he coukd to appear 6'4"!! 5'11.5" Ric Flair did all he could to appear 6'1"+ on camera & at apoearances! Unless it's full body pics...we can never assume pro wrestlers are in normal footwear. And even then...internal lifts are & were used by 1/3 of these guys! Fact!!! Ray Traylor in 1999 was 6'3.5"! When I meet him he had on 2" Cowboys boots & I had on 1.875" Skechers logger boots! I'm 5'11" barefoot...He was 4.5" taller than me ...MAX!!!!!

@6'2 er4smiths or Erik Smith says his height is 6'2" but in the past said 6'1.5" but in reality is only 5'10" with a height complex! Tennessee's finest. Disregard anything he says it's all lies. Hulk was 6'6" prime. Now from me meeting him face to face with no footwear advantage and I'm 6'3" bang on and my little brother there who is 6'2" or a fraction under to look at an compare to he was edging me out by 1" when he stood up and leaned back and 2" on my bro Troy's head went up to barely above Hogans eyebrows so from top of his head to top of Hulks was a 2 to 2.25" difference.
James B said on 11/Dec/15
Rob like people have pointed out bossman used to wear thick shoes. In that YouTube video since the rock is out of ring gear I am guessing he's wearing trainers so do you think a chance bossmans height could be 6'4.5 if he has shoe advantage? I think bossman always wore thick heeled shoes in and out of ring gear.
Editor Rob: depends just how thick his shoes are, a half inch or so more and you could argue he was weak 6ft 5

If bossman wore thick soles in the video like in Franks photo then 6'4.5 could be his true height. I am guessing the rock wore trainers in that YouTube clip which do not boost your height in the same way wrestling boots do.

@ 6'2 just because you say you're 6'2" doesn't mean you are. The point RP was trying to make is Big Bossman was a lot shorter than imagined in person. You say it's his opinion and Bossman could be 6'4" well then he could be 6'2" as well. It's pretty obvious Hogan was peak 6'3.5" and wore high heels custom cowboy boots and or wrestling boots in public to look more 6'5"ish - because let's face it - he never appeared over 6'5" EVER even early on in his career. I'm 6'2" barefoot and if I wore lifted boots I'd look huge too.

On Hogan think you got the heights perfect, remember him as "Sterling Golden" back in 70's and he was billed as 6'9, but 6'6 was probably right then, now after many years and countless surgeries, 6'3 is probably him on a good day relatively pain free, wrestlers really give their bodies up to entertain us fans...

I would post them but the pic i have with him wouldn't be a good pic to post because in the pic i am leaned over and my height isn't showed so it only would show me with him with about a 2 to 3 inch difference but my brothers picture is good for comparison because he stood straight and so did Hogan they were side by side holding a tee shirt that he signed for my nephew (his son). He is 6'2" and theres just as much of a difference with them as there was with me an hogan. The guy is 6'4" stretched out but no more not 6'4.5 or 6'5" just a flat 6'4"

James B said on 29/Nov/15
Between 1990-2002 I think hogan lost the most height, I mean to go from 6'6 - 6'3.5 is a lot. Since 2002 hogan has lost hardly any height at all so I doubt he will shrink under 6'2 in his lifetime unless he has to undergo more surgeries?

1989-1990 I think he shrink from 6'6 to 6'5.5 and by 1996 no taller than 6'5 legit. Between 1998-2002 within those 4 years he lost 1.5 inches because of more surgeries perhaps.

I gave commented -- years ago -- on this thread. I worked for WWF /E back then in operations and Terry was a solid 6-6 then, no more, no less. Billed higher for obvious reasons. Keep in mind when he was booked with Andre Mania III, Andre was about 6-10 by then, would guess 7- his prime, still pushing a good 525 that day in Detroit. Today Hulk after age and surgeries is about 6-3, stares Brock in the face. Will mention that after Andre, Ken Patera and maybe Haku, strongest guy to get in there back then too. Brock, Paul Wight would often comment about Terry's shoot strength.

All of these 6'3 claims in the 80s and 90s are fabricated stories made up by idoits. mid 80s Hogan was 6 '5 in stocking feet and prolly 6'7 in those boots one heck of a big guy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im not selling anything for you to buy. I giving it for free. Anybody who says he's under 6'4" when he stands at his tallest has never laid eyes on him face to face. The people who have actually met him in person say 6'3.5 to 6'4" and state hes always slouching. If you have never met him your opinion isn't worth the time you waste to type it in troll fashion here.

Nice pic there Ben, still looks 6'3 to me. Always a chance of him being a small fraction under but anything under 6'2.5" or over 6'3.5" is just plain wrong. Listing is still solid imo.

@Erik if you are not er4smiths i apologize for my abrupt rudeness but that guy is a complete troll who says stupid things on tons of other peoples pages. It's not just Hulk who he does this to. There have been so many people show that idiot he is trolling and wrong but he still trolls. Again i'm sorry and if you do get a chance to meet him go talk to the man ask him his height he's open to the subject and he will show you his wrecked back which you can physically see his spine is shortened ask him to stand straight he will and then you will see his true height which is 6'4".

@pablo77bar. Wrong. Im 6'3" and hes taller than me so try again. Theres a easy 3 inch difference in that pic and probably more like 4 if they both stand up straight.
So are you trying to tell me that Hogan could be 6ft 4 range nowdays ? No chance
That's a 1,84 guy with a 1,91 MAX.I'm giving also the benefit of doubt.Both are with poor posture
risky6 said on 23/Nov/15
Also @erik or er4smiths or any of the other troll user names you go under please stop. Your ignorance is becoming intolerable. Why do you always want to preach nonsense that only YOU see. Hulk is still 6'4" Today if he cares to stand up straight (no bent knees) or a hunched over posture and just standing around is between 6'3.25 to 6'3.5" with relaxed normal (his normal) given the damage done to his body posture. I have read and seen 100's of 1000's ridiculous statements you have written on this page and tons of others it's a pattern for you and maybe in your own mind normal. You need a reality check.
Erik said on 23/Nov/15
@risky6 - you got me there. So in a way you're exactly right.
I'm solely basing my opinion off lots of pics with other people and obviously what people I've talked to said that have met him. I really hope to meet him sooner than later so I can finally observe for myself. It is odd to me how one mans height can have such a divide over. If I'm wrong I'll definitely eat crow and apologize personally
risky6 said on 23/Nov/15
@erik you have never met him so your opinion isn't worth two cents! I have and the only people who say ignorant things are the one's who have never stood face to face with Hulk Hogan.
Erik said on 22/Nov/15
@risky6 - don't start again dude. You're obviously in need of glasses and don't take into consideration that Ben is leaning and Hogan's head is closer to the camera. I just looked at another pic of a guy that just met Hulk at the gym and he said he's around 6'1.5" and Hulk was a bit taller. I'll even be generous and say Hulk might be 6'2.5" straight up. He is NOT I repeat NOT 6'3" let alone 6'4"
The Ben said on 21/Nov/15
It was hard to judge his height, I thought he was shorter and only when I looked back at the photo did I see the real difference. It's a professional photo and only upper body. We were both wearing trainers, Nike air for him and Adidas boost for me. I could see him a peak 6'6. He was very cool to everyone, well worth paying to meet. Some wrestlers are disappointing but not Hulk, you can see he still enjoys the experience. Recently met a few others who couldn't really be bothered.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 20/Nov/15
I'm thinking he was 6'5" peak, that makes the most sense to me. Today a weak-ish 6'3". Highly doubtful he's lost as much as 3", but a solid 2" he probably has.

Good pic. Theres something about him that just makes you instantly like him when you talk to him. He still looks 6'4" if he stands straight up.
RYAN11 said on 17/Nov/15
Nice pic Ben. Hogan has more than 3 inches on you there, just look at the tops of your heads and not the eyes. Remember Hogan has a head much larger than a normal man's as we can see in this picture. I do wonder why you didn't show a full body shot? I can guarantee from meeting him a year ago at a similar show that he stands with his legs close together and bent all the time. We are trying to establish his height if he stood tall right? Hogan is still 6'4" minimum and Ben thank you for showing it to the doubters.
RP said on 16/Nov/15
Yeah Ben...if you're 6'0.25" barefoot? Then Hogan is 6'3.25" there. Looks about 255 to 260 there...factoring in his small legs.

____________________________________

I put him around 6'5" to 6'5.5" because he stood right next to my Grandfather in 1980 who was 6'5" peak and still about 6'4.5" at the time. Hogan was slightly taller. Yes Hogan could have had lifts, but my Grandfather always wore dress shoes with a heel, so I doubt Hogan had any footwear advantage. Also my ex step father was seated next to Hogan on a flight back from Japan, also said Hogan was taller than my Grandfather. Apparently my ex step father had great old time talking with Hogan the entire flight, Hogan was trying to talk him into trying out wrestling. My step father was 6'0" and about 280lbs, biker type. Looked like a mini Earthquake(John Tetna). If Hogan was under 6'5" peak it would not have been by much. personally I just don't see it.

I think Hogan was at best 6'5.25 peak. I don't think he was ever under 6'5.25 when younger. Now he still looks a solid 6'3 when he straightens up. A lot of people on here confuse loss of height with poor posture, they are 2 completely different things. Hogan may have poor posture, that doesn't mean he is shorter. he

I remember him saying he was somewhere around 6'5 when a reporter called him 6'7 and this was in the 90s. If he lost that much he likely isn't over the 6'3 range even with rehabilitation especially leading the life he has. Def looks around a weak 6'3 now taking into account that poor posture he has.
James B said on 27/Oct/15
I think today hogan is probably not over 6'2.5 just look at him with 6'4.75-6'5 Joe Mangelio

Since matt Morgan had 5 inches on him in 2012 that makes matt no more than 6'8 203cm either. Back in 2012 I think hogan was maybe a fraction taller like like 6'2.75-6'3.
Big C said on 26/Oct/15
Rob do you think Hogans peak was maybe closer to 6'5.5 than the full 6'6? One things for certain though he was never 6'7, just like Andre the Giant was no where near 7'5 and was more 6'11.5 possibly 7'0, do you agree?
RP said on 26/Oct/15
DK4455...Hogan & Lister were both 6'5" ish in their prime! Lister were huge healed boots to make him look taller! Even Tom Lister admits this himself in an interview ...he said me & "Hulk I were both really 6'5", but they put me in huge boots making me 6'7"..." and he said that he was 305 lbs when he filmed No Holds Barred. A lot of people have actually said that Barefoot in 1989 Hogan was actually abou 1/4" inch taller than Lister??? Just look at The Survivor Series match stare down...Zeus had about a 0.75" to 1" footwear advantage on Hogan...and is still only about 0.5" to 0.75" Max taller than Hogan. Lister boots in the movie No Holds Barred were ridiculous ! Looked to have a 2.25 to 2.5" heel on them.

Hulk Hogan always seem to lie about his height like every other thing that come s out of his mouth. He is 6'3 at best. Just check out No Hold's Barred the 1989 movie with he and Zeus aka Tiny Lester who is 6'5 ll day long because i met him. And in that movie as well as in the WWF when they use to wrestle together Zeus aka Lester is Towering over the top of supposingly a 6'7 Hulk Hogan back in 1989. Come on people it is basic common sense. But Hogan says he lost 4 inches to back, leg and neck surgery???? that is just a lie to cover up another lie people. No one in WWF or WWE is what their height says. And there are only 3 people in the history of WWF and WWE that were 7 feet or taller. It's all a fairy tail. I stop watching that years ago because it was hard to tell fact from fiction.

JT what would you estimate Khalis head size from those photos. if hogans is roughly 10 inches then khalis has to be near 12?

It looks 12 inches but probably closer to 11 inches or a bit longer since Khali is closer to the camera than Hogan. Big Show's head is probably 12 inch range and Khali's looks around an inch shorter. Click Here Like Andre, Khali' s head is relatively normal sized from the eyes up and abnormally elongated below.

So its not out of the question that if Big Show and Khali ever go face to face again (unlikely to happen), they could be the same height! Khali is certainly beginning to degrade.

Actually looking at the clip with hogan I just posted lesner does slightly bend forward a bit making the difference go from 1 inch to 1.5 inches.

Not impossible perhaps that hogan was just 6'3.5 in 2002?

Jim also went through extensive cancer treatments and chemo 2013-2014. He is now cancer free and doing great! However chemo treatments and radiation treatments do indeed slightly reduce bone mass.

The reason Studd was about the same height as Ladd was because he was over 6'8" tall. All you have to do is take what the WWF billed these guys at before they couldn't exagerrate heights anymore and take off 1-2 inches. Studdard was billed at 6'10", was really 6'8.5", Andre was 7'2" and billed at 7'4", Hogan was referred to as 6'9" often by Gorilla and others while being billed at 6'8", he was really 6'7", Ladd couldn't have his height altered as it was known from the NFL already. Hogan is 6'4" now and was 6'7" before loosing height. Nothing can alter that, it's just the plain and obvious truth.
er4smiths said on 1/Oct/15
@6'2 - easy, he did it with lifts and elevated soles. Sly Stallone can appear 6' - how if he's 5'8" barefoot? Lifts in his elevated soled shoes. Look at the pics of Studd with Christopher Reeve 6'3", Rick Barry 6'7" or Bill Fralic 6'5".

I AM DOWNGRADING 90% OF THE WRESTLERS like Andre, Cena, Austin etc. You need to get your observation skills checked dude. Andre peak 6'9.5" BOOM meditate on that for awhile. Studd 6'5" - OUCH Ernie Ladd - 6'7" Cena 5'11"

That man was never 6'7" ..the undertaker and big john stuff were 6'7 and both looked two inches taller than Hulk ..

@er4smiths every single time you always say the same sh"t about your imaginary friend who met hulk and took a pic with him but have yet to put it up on here! I call BS on that! In fact i have met him stood within 2 feet of him and the dude is 6'4" right now bottom line! He gives off a 6'3" impression due to slouching but when he does straighten his self he's every bit of 6'4" no more no less! And the whole 6'3.5" prime sh"t is about the stupidest thing a human could say not in a joking way. With that prime height you are downgrading 90% of the wrestlers such as Andre, Cena, Austin and the list goes on even into the actors realm. Stupid people like yourself shouldn't be aloud to go in public or have access to a computer. You alone make me want to stop even going on Rob's website all together branching off to other people's height page with all your dumb a $$ comments you are the biggest height troll i have ever seen and i question the pics you did post of yourself. I honestly think you are a 5'2" hate filled height shortening jack a $$.

Rob joe Mangelio 2-3 inches on hogan

er4smiths said on 25/Sep/15
@risky6 - I'm not into downgrading heights - that's like me accusing you of upgrading heights. I'm not a "dip sh*t" - I'm actually a nice guy. I'm not out to ruffle your feathers. All I did was ask you a simple question and as usual you took it to a whole new unnecessary level. I have seen other pics with Hulk and Joe, let alone with Peyton Manning and Snoop Dogg and Todd Chrisley and David Hasselhoff etc etc. I have not met Hulk in person, but one of my closest friends has and I have seen the pics. I know how tall my friend is and what footwear he and Hulk were wearing. So based on the picture of them standing face to face, and my friends own observations - I can very accurately guess Hulk's height. My opinion is Hulk Hogan is no more than 6'2" barefoot TODAY. Which speaks volumes about his peak height, which in my opinion was no more than 6'3.5" You can disagree all day long - that's your prerogative, but you have shown me no proof to change my opinion. So laugh all you want - but looks like I get the last laugh (as usual)

@er4smiths look at every other pic out there with them he looks a inch shorter. What about those or are you only gonna look at just that 1? Ive seen him apparently you havent! You are a dip sh"t and every single other wrestler you downgrade it's a pattern for you. I laugh at your stupid talk.

Barkley measured slightly under 6´7" in footwear, peak Hogan in Cowboyboots is shorter than Barkley in Dresshoes

Rob has Barkley at 6´4.75" barefoot

@risky6
look at the picture below with Arnold and Joe Maganiello
You think Hulk is 1' shorter than Joe??
Rey said on 20/Sep/15
After watching several videos and pics......I doubt that Hogan was ever 6'6" I believe his peak height was 6'4" 1/2-3/4 max in flat feet ....then again he was always wearing cowboy boots on talk shows....like Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. He wanted to appear a lot taller than former Marine 6' 3" 1/2 Ed McMahon.

@6'2
Ed Leslie said on the interview Hogan was 6'6" not 6'5.5" i don't know how to attach it but it's on youtube.

If I could have got there I would have splashed out on the photo/meet to find out how tall he is once and for all.
Frank said on 17/Sep/15
Watching all pics in this debate, without doubt Hogan never was taller that 6´5" barefoot.
He almost always wears big boots where he looks 6´7" then.

Now his range will be around 6´3" barefoot, no more sure perhaps a little bit less

Backlund was about peak Pipers height ~6´0.5"
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 14/Sep/15
Piper barefoot height was 6ft 1.5. With boots on maybe 6ft 3 or a bit less
He was a bit taller than at least 6ft 1 Vince
He lost too much height ,4'+
Maybe in that video Piper is with the boots on and Hogan barefoot
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 12/Sep/15
Piper was not 6ft 1
Was 6ft 1.5 peak so 6ft 5.5 To Hogan it's ok
6'2 said on 11/Sep/15
Ed Leslie said he was near 6'3 and hogan Was 6'5.5" when training in the 70s

Just watch a wrestling match between Hogan and Piper.
Click Here

Highly doubt anyone had lifts, but even so, Hogan is just that more massive and proportionally longer than Piper in every way, makes him look like a child. Easily 5"+ difference.
JoNn B said on 10/Sep/15
Rob are going to finally meet the man him self Hulk Hogan for one night only in Sheffield where his doing a meet and greet this November :) and lay to rest Hulk Hogan's height....
[Editor Rob: as much as I'd like to, I think it's too much money for me.]

@HeightcrazyRed6ft

And another with Piper where he does appear 6-6+:
Click Here

Fairest comparison is when they're both in the ring and you see full-body, clearly with no lifts for either here:
Click Here
Hulkster still appears 6-6+ over Piper

Here's my take on it - during WWF heydays, Hogan was leader of the "good guys", Piper leader of "the bad". They didn't want to make the bad guys look so weak and had to make Piper look more menacing at times to make it appear not so one-sided.
RP said on 10/Sep/15
Very possible, in the locker room, still untapped...most likely Hogan was barefoot or in flip flops. So, yeah, he was out of his 1.5" wrestling boots in that interview. Piper must likely wearing his 1.25" to 1.5" wrestling boots since he was in full ring entrance gear. Barefoot peak Piper 6'0.75" & 6'2" in his wrestling boots. Hogan standing straight up would have 3" & change on Piper in the clip. So, makes since...Hogan was 6'5" & change barefoot.
