Michael Jordan's "true barefoot" was measured @ 6'5.25".

reading an old observer from early 1997 there is an interesting note on an interview the montreal gazette did with big show and hulk hogan.

meltzers own take on the interview at the time..

"Local sports columnist Jack Todd wrote a story about the proceedings. Todd, who is 6-6, appeared to be two inches taller than Hogan, which didn't go unnoticed by anyone including Hogan, who refused to take a photo with Todd unless Todd scrunched down because it would ruin the gimmick of his size. Todd said that Hogan was 6-4 and 250 pounds. He also wrote Giant was nowhere near 7-4 and 450, but he was one of the biggest humans he'd ever seen."

For some reason wade looks 6'4.5 recently but in 2011 he looked 6'5 and swagger looks a solid 6'4.5.

As for cesaro he looks for sure 6'3.5 and yeah I agree hogan looks minimum a flat 6'3.

On a final note am I the only one who thinks randy orton looks more 6'3 than 6'4?
TBBT says on 15/Apr/14
Hulk Hogan was 6'6 at his peak..Though I was surprised he was that tall, he does look at least as tall as Michael Jordan, or even taller. There are various pictures comparing Hulk Hogan's heights with other tall people, who's heights are verified (such as professional athletes)

BorkLaser says on 15/Apr/14
Cesaro is billed at 6'5" and seeing him with Hogan and Swagger gave me the impression that he's around 6'3". Now that he's with Heyman, it'll be good to see them next to each other so we can compare him to Lesnar. Lol, I think Cesaro needs his own page now, Rob :P
Vegas says on 15/Apr/14
khali and show completely dwarf everyone in that wrestlemania 30 press conference photo. its looks like both are closer to the camera but they still look much taller than they should. summer rae standing directly to the right of big show was listed 5'10 in football so should stand around 6ft in heels Click Here

big show looked about 10 inches taller standing next to sheamus on raw last night.
miko says on 14/Apr/14
I can't buy Cesaro anything under 6'3.5, he wasn't much shorter than Swagger and he's 6'4.5 worst, he's taller than Orton and close to Barrett who looks a shade over 6'5.
kyuss says on 14/Apr/14
6.3 max,not over that for sure.
RP says on 14/Apr/14
Hogan & Cesaro look pretty much the exact same height to me.
Vegas says on 14/Apr/14
i was at raw last week and hogan didn't look any taller shaking hands in the ring with cesaro.
Eric says on 14/Apr/14
Hogan is definitely about 6'4 right now, looking taller than Batista, orton and the rock and about one inch shorter than Joe Mania on raw. I'd put hogan at a clean 6'4
gorb says on 13/Apr/14
Click Here Hogan looks a little taller than Cesaro in this clip. Around 1:30 - Hogan looks a couple of inches taller than Cesaro
James B says on 12/Apr/14
Looked 6ft4 on smack down last night. He has good posture though.

lets look at the picture RED posted. at 5-8 mean gene size it is at hogans mustach.
*************************************

Really?
A foot has twelve inches so count again please...
denali says on 10/Apr/14
lets look at the picture RED posted. at 5-8 mean gene size it is at hogans mustach. mean gene was always just below hogans bottom lip. i think hulk is 6-4 75. the pic is 1 inch short , hulk is just under 6-5, and stone cold is 6-175 and the rock is 6-325, this is how i see it.
BorkLaser says on 10/Apr/14
As of late, seeing him next to WWE superstars, I think he looks a little taller than 6'3". I'd say he's around 6'3.75"
CC says on 10/Apr/14
Hulk Hogan mentioned in this video as between 6' 5" - 6' 6". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEYcnqiRcVM

Hogan certainly wasn't 4 inches taller than Austin. More like 2.5"
******************************************************************

Agreed, at first glance I thought 3"+ but measuring the distance in the pic shows 2.5-2.75". Click Here

I think Austin was in 0.75"-1" sneakers and I just received my Nike Air Jordan 3 Retro ( Hogans shoe´s, I really like the design) Size US 12 and they give 1.34" or 1 1/3" so Hogan has about 0.5" advantage.

If Austin is 6´1"flat then Hogan is maximum 6´3.25"
RP says on 9/Apr/14
RIP Ultimate Warrior "Jim Hilwig".
miko says on 9/Apr/14
On second thoughts it probably was closer to 3 inches than 4 he had on Austin but either way, unless Austin is a flat 6'0, then Hulk isn't under 6'3.
RP says on 9/Apr/14
Your correct Roel...once again! Hogan 6'3.5" , Rock 6'2.75" & Austin 6'1" & that's The Bottom Line!!! ;^)
Smarty says on 9/Apr/14
Stone Cold 6'0.50, Rock 6'2.25 and Hogan 6.3.25.

That how I saw it.

In the first pic Hogan has his head down, while in the 2nd he's raising his head up. In the 3rd pic their heads are level and it doesn't look more than 2-3 inches.

Hogan raising his head up isn't gonna make him any taller.

At no point during that segment on Wrestlemania could you make an honest comparison between Hogan & The Rock. Here's a backstage pic of the two at WM XXX

RP says on 7/Apr/14
Hogan 6'3.5", Rock 6'2.75" & Stone Cold 6'1"
Bill says on 7/Apr/14
It's time to upgrade Hogans height. He has 2" on the Rock and almost 4" on Austin. He's been looking taller recently. It's definitely not the same Hogan who was in those rent a center commercials. He's no shorter than 6'4". Click Here
denali says on 7/Apr/14
he toward over stone cold and had the rock by 2, hes 6-5.and he still looks like he can kick both of there candy asses.
Ron says on 7/Apr/14
Hogan looked a bit taller than 6'2.75 - 6'3 rock. Hogan is still impressive at his age and after all surgeries.
miko says on 7/Apr/14
Hogan was clearly taller than Rock and Austin at Wrestlemania 30.

He looked to have some height on 6'3 Rock when they stood close and had around 3.5, maybe 4 inches on 6'1 Austin in the staredown when he stood tall.
RoelC says on 7/Apr/14
Smarty says on 6/Apr/14
That Andre statue was crafted to be 7'4 which was NOT Andre's real height.

I think the difference we're seeing in the pic I've posted, is the difference we should've seen at Wrestlemania III if Andre was really 7'5" and Hogan 6'8"

6'3.5" Hulk Hogan, plus 1.25" Sneakers=6'4.75"...6'5.5" JBL, plus 2" cowboy boots=6'7.5". This gives you JBL's nearly 3" (2.75") height advantage in the video. Thank you & you're welcome.
higgi says on 5/Apr/14
I don't know if my post didn't make it through because the mods thought I was trolling?

I'm serious, I met Hogan 2 years ago at the ICE in London (Bischoff was part of his entourage) and I know it's hard to believe (I was shocked) but he was shorter than me and I'm 5'10 (maybe 5'11 in shoes). I was standing RIGHT beside the guy within a foot.

Being a huge Hogan fan, you can bet that I was glued to the booth, trying to work out if it was just the most convincing impersonator ever!

He looks quite tall in the video from the event here:
Click Here

but that is a tiny little woman interviewing him.

Seriously, he must wear specially made 6 inch raised soles for TV appearances etc. I guess a combination of old age and all those operations just compress the back and knees over time.
miko says on 5/Apr/14
JBL is taller than Hogan but that is the worst angle possible to judge anybodys height from.
jayp says on 4/Apr/14
Click Here 6'6" JBl towers over Hulk Hogan here. I wonder if Hulk is sitting down???

I actually think All of Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea's listings on this page need to be updated. Peak Hogan: 6'5.5" & current Hogan: 6'3.5"
Jeffery says on 3/Apr/14
Looked seriously 192-192.5 cm on the WM press conference next to Orton
dicksock says on 2/Apr/14
Here is an excerpt from a new interview with Paul Orndorff:

On Not Beating Hogan for the WWF World Title: "That's what they should have done. And instead of making hundreds of millions of dollars they could have made thousands of millions of dollars if they had done that. We talked about it some and that's what they should have done ... I guess for some reason because [Hulk] was 6'5" and weighed 320 pounds that he was this big huge thing that nobody should beat him for the belt. If they would have said "Let's go out there, Paul, and you fight for your life and Terry, you go out there and you fight for your life," you can bet your ass I would have fought. I guarantee ... I would have won and [Hulk] knows it."

miko says on 2/Apr/14
Dicksock I agree, barefoot Orton is obviously a taller man, but what I'm trying to say is Hulk is stacking up to him very well for a guy that some are calling sub 6'3. Since Hulk has come back to the WWE he looks in better shape and actually seems taller for it, in TNA he just slouched about and never looked interested.

_______

I think Hogan should be upgraded to either 6'3.5" or 6'3.75".
RP says on 2/Apr/14
Hulk has Batista by 1" easy!!! If Orton was to put his legs together & stand completely erect he'd have Hulk by 1/2". And Randy Orton is a strong 6'4" barefoot all day long! Hulk looks to have almost 2" on HHH as well.
denali says on 2/Apr/14
hogan is clearly the tallest guy in the wrestlemania pic. look at the background. his head is an 1.5 inch paST RANDY. HE;S 6-5 .shame on all the doubters/ hogan
is was and always be the man

Hogan was taller in one photo and shorter in the other, so even if we give Orton the benefit of the doubt, Hulk is still looking close to 6'4 in good posture. Orton is not under 6'4, and regularly looks over it.

_________

I'm not trying to be a dick, but in the one where you think Hogan looks taller, Orton has a much wider stance and is still at a footwear disadvantage. Additionally, Batista looks really tall in that picture. On Raw, he looked easily 2" shorter than Orton.

He is not taller than Randy Orton. On the link you posted, there is a picture of Orton and Hogan from the WM 30 Press Conference and Orton is clearly at least .5" taller...and Hogan has a footwear advantage.

Hogan: 6'3.75"
Orton: 6'4.5"
Batista: 6'2.5"
HHH: 6'2"
Arnold: 5'11.5"
Joe M: 6'5"

Here's a decent shot of Joe's shoes Click Here Not really sure what brand they are but they do not appear to be Vans/Converse All-Stars unless they are now adding glossy material to these types of shoes. Looking at the color of the sole, they could be Nike RT1 high tops Click Here Click Here
[Editor Rob: I'm not saying they are actually vans/supra/converse model (I don't know the exact one without a close up), I'm saying the outsole style is very similar - the insole sits lower. It's clearly not the Nike's because the thickness at the front is noticeably more than what Joe has. This one here would be closer in style to the type and thickness he looks to have, the insole sits closer to the 0.5-0.6 range and the outsole can look several mm more.]

personally don't see much difference between hogan and joes footwear. Click Here

whatever about actual height i see 1.5 inches or thereabouts between joe and hogan and roughly 4 inches between hogan and arnold
[Editor Rob: those sneaker boots joe has look closer to 0.5-0.6 range, the outsole is like the vans/supra type which is thicker than where the insole is sitting...

Hogan is in Air Jordan 3's...he has an advantage.]

Yup hulk hogan is 3.5 -4 inches taller than arnold this days. Arnold seem 5'11 range I'm the raw. He could be 6'0 today but he doesn't look this height at all.

sid says on 28/Mar/14
blaze Joe had 3 inches on Hogan, Hogan looked 6'2 and only had 2 inches on Arnold

not sure what segment you were watching :D hogan clearly had more height on arnold than joe had on hogan.
The Ben says on 29/Mar/14
Joe 6'5
Hulk 6'3
Arnold 5'11 1/2
RP says on 29/Mar/14
Peak Hogan 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"...Peak Macho Man 6'0.5"...note: in the 80's Macho Man in cowboy boots was about 0.25" taller than Vince McMahon in 1" dress/casual shoes. Peak Vince was 6'1"
RP says on 29/Mar/14
I met Randy Poffo in 1997 he was 45 years old at that time. And he was 6'0". A peak Macho Man may have been 6'0.5" in the 80's?? Randy eventually settled down to about 5'11.5" in his 50's from what I've been able to judge from his last few appearances on TV & movies. When he was filming Spider Man while portraying the character "Bone Saw", Randy says in an interview with Muscle Mag International "I'm 6'0" tall & I'm currently 239 lbs...10 lbs more than I used to wrestle at"

So many of you are so hell bent on trying to make Hogan seem shorter than he really is and it becomes so clear in cases like this, you are all very transparent when you pose rediculous claims that the pictures and videos all dispell easily. Hogan, when he stood up straight was within an inch or less of Joe, and Joe is over 6'5", not less like somer of you immidietly tried to start saying once Hogan was senn being pretty much the same height on Raw. Same old, same old. It will not change the truth, Hogan is at least 6'4.5" if not more at 60, and he was 6'7" in his twenties and nothing you say will ever change it lol.

_______

Ronster and Freddy are making the most sense on this page lately. I'm seeing a lot of bogus claims being made to make Hogan seem shorter than he is. He clearly dwarfed Arnold on Raw and was virtually the same height, when standing straight, as 6'5" Joe. Hogan claims 6'4"-6'4.5" for himself, so we know he's not more than that. Honestly, he looked about 6'4" on Raw, give or take .25". I say he should be upgraded to at least 6'3.5".
Lillo thomas says on 27/Mar/14
By the way arnold really looked 5'11 range in the Raw.
Lillo thomas says on 27/Mar/14
Ronster first of all Joe manganiello isn't a legit 6'5 , he is 6'4.5 tops ( in the pics together arnold reach Joe manganiello eye level , so roughly 4.5 inches shorter ). Hulk hogan looked 6'3 max in comparison with arnold too.
miko says on 27/Mar/14
Hulk might not be 6'4 these days, but I do have a hard time buying him being a flat 6'3 if he fully stretched himself out to his max. I'm talking knees as straight as possible and chest out posture. He has looked pretty tall next to a few of the WWE guys and he made Schwarzenegger look like a little boy.
Vegas says on 27/Mar/14
there is no way way joe is over 6'5 looking at him standing next to the miz whom i have met in person (and have photos with)
Freddy says on 27/Mar/14
Richard says on 25/Mar/14
Cool picture with Arnold, Hulk and what looks like Joe Manganiello standing next to one another. Click Here

Now, if this really is Joe... I think it's consistent with most of the recent 6'2 estimates for Hogan. If he is 6'3 he is a very weak 6'3... Joe isn't even standing straight and he's further back.

Further back?? How can he be further back when joe had his head much closer? You can't tell me that from that angle we can judge heights if so Arnold looks close to Hogans height. that's absurd! In the ring Hogan did look 6'4. If no one could see that then get your eyes checked
Aaronious says on 26/Mar/14
where on earth Red183 did you get a 1.5" footwear for hogan? he's wearing sneakers bro, regular kickers, which give you 3/4" max. Hogan and joe both have comparable footwear and there is an inch at MOSt between them, that puts Hogan at 6'4" barefoot, which is spot on , since Hogan recently had spine fusion surgery within the last two years and had some of his shrinking spine treated..
Ronster says on 26/Mar/14

Sid, are you on something, or in need of glasses? Hogan stood cose to the same height as Joe on Raw, he was at most an inch shorter. Joe is over 6'5", many other height sites have him at 6'6", Hogan was still over 6'4" and that was his evening height. Rob; i really think this is all too overwhelming of evidence that he is over 6'4" to leave your estimate at 6'3", time for a change?
[Editor Rob: Joe over 6ft 5 is unlikely, having seen him several times I cannot buy that one.]
The Ben says on 26/Mar/14
I'd agree with 6'3.
Guy says on 26/Mar/14
I was watching the Rock versus Hulk in a wrestling match (don't remember which one), and I swear Hulk and the Rock were roughly the same height when they stood face to face. So if the Rock is roughly 191 cm (as stated on this site), then Hulk must be 193 cm tops.
berta says on 26/Mar/14
yes rob i know hogan have 1 cm shoe advantage but i think if he get measured he really still is about 193. Because with his knees he kind of bends them when he walks and stand witch make him 2 cm shorter than he is. I just ingured one knee by lifting to heavy and for the moment i walk a little like that and it fells like you get about 2 cm shorter then usuall when you walk like that.my point is he may look like 191 but measure 193. Personally i think he can look 192 still but is a little over 193 against a wall.
denali says on 26/Mar/14
hogan looked 6-5 next to arnold and joe 6-6 ,joe looks to have a footwear add.if we compare hulk to arnie hes still 6-5.

RP says on 25/Mar/14 Joe 6'5"...Hogan 6'3.5"...Arnold 5'11.75 (6'0" maybe at max)? Joe was exact same height as legit 6'5" Michael Strahan , BTW.

I've met Michael Strahan... He's 6'4 12. I still have his rookie card that he signed for me. It has him listed as 6'4.
BorkLaser says on 25/Mar/14
6'3" is spot on. He seemed exactly that on RAW next to Arnold and Joe Manganiello

Joey could even stand taller there, look at his legs.

Hogan 6´3" + minimum 1.5" footwear= 6´4.5"
Joey 6´5" + maximum 1" footwear = 6´6"
Arnie 5´11"+ minimum 1.25"footwear= 6´0.25"

JT says on 25/Mar/14
Click Here There may be an assumption here that Manganiello is wearing Converse All-Stars/Chuck Taylor’s. It looks like it on initial view but that may not be the case. Click Here The shoes look like they had some shine to them, which canvas shoes won’t have. However, the top of Hogan’s head does not go all the way to the top of the bandana either, which some here may be assuming.

Miz did look around 6’0” with Manganiello, which should negate the inevitable claim that Manganiello was wearing lifts.

Post whatever back procedure he had, Hogan still looked a little shorter than both ~6’4” Troy Aikman and Boomer Esiason so that’s pretty much consistent with how Hogan appeared last night.
Lillo thomas says on 25/Mar/14
Joe manganiello isn't a legit 6'5. He is 6'4.5 tops. He is 4.5 inches tops taller than arnold. Hulk hogan look 6'3 at best next to manganiello. I'm starting to think hulk hogan was 6'5 tops in his peak. I can't see him losing 3 inches from his peak. 3 inches a lot.
miko says on 25/Mar/14
Hogan looked 6'3.5 range side all things considered side by side with Managaniello on RAW. Not a chance he is under 6'3.
[Editor Rob: remember Hogan has footwear advantage]
Gorb says on 25/Mar/14
I'd say hogan is at least 6'3 to 6'4, depending on posture. I met him at Fan Expo in Toronto. Click Here with Arnold and Joe. Hes looking 6'3 there but there's another pic where he looks taller. Click Here
Dustin says on 25/Mar/14
On WWE raw last night hulk hogan was in the ring with Schwarzenegger and joe manganiello. manganiello is listed as 6'5". Hulk Hogan was at least 2 but maybe 3 inches shorter than joe manganiello. This means Hulk Hogan is most likely around 6'2". Arnold's current height is likely 5'11" or 6'0". Hulk was closer to Arnold's height.
Richard says on 25/Mar/14
Also... have a look at the head sizes. Hogan's headsize has often been exagarrated in the debates, this, I think shows him to have a normal sized head.
For comparison have a look at editor Rob's pics next to Joe.
Richard says on 25/Mar/14

berta says on 25/Mar/14
Click Here cant see the 5 cm differenc between hogan and joe manganiello. And hogan cant even stand upp straight. He must be 193 now and joe is 194-5
[Editor Rob: remember Joe has sneakers which are at least half inch less than Hogan.]

But, to follow up on Hulk & Joe...Hogan is so hard to judge cause his posture Fluctuate so much. Sometimes when standing straight Hogan only looked 0.75" to 1" shorter. Then a few seconds later Hogan would start slouching & bending his knees & look 2" to 2.5" inches shorter. However, on average Hogan looked 1.25" to 1.5" inches shorter than Joe. Hulkster toward over Arnie tho. That's for sure.

On Raw Joe Manganeillo had Hogan by 1.5" & Hogan had Arnold by 3.5" if not 4". With the naked eye...Joe 6'5"...Hogan 6'3.5" & Arnold barely 6'0"...maybe 5'11.75"?

Hogan looked about the same height as 6'5" Joe Manganiello on Raw tonight. He was no more than an inch shorter. He also looked jacked.

Martel looks only like 1/4" if that? "maybe same height"shorter than Hercules. I was told Hercules was a legit 6'1"...even though he was billed @ 6'3" by the WWF. Also, most people claim The Warlord was a legit 6'4"
Also.

Guys, I ran into Hulk Hogan in NYC a few weeks ago. I was surprised to see that he's listed as 6'7" - honestly I doubt he's a shred above 6'2". Nice guy though.
Ronster says on 23/Mar/14
Hogan did an interview on Raw with Cesaro who is listed at 6'5" by the WWE. So he is probably an inch or so shorter, but he was wearing his wrstling boots and Hogan had on Sneakers, that gives a footwear advantage to Cesaro and Hogan was taller by two inches when he stood up straight! Hogan is at least 6'5" still.
john b says on 23/Mar/14
Swagger is a good 6'6 - 6'5 and a half. Cesaro is 6'4, Hogan next to Cesaro looked the same height or just a tad over 6'4, end of the day 6'4 is not small Hogan was legit big guy in the day after hip and knee replacement plus at the age of 60 when Hogan said he was 6'7 at one time in his life dont think this was far fetched.

Martel was billed at 6'0" so you can normally subtract 2 or more inches. However, seeing him with Heenan and Piper, he could be as high as 5'11" but that's probably it. He looked a little shorter than Dino Bravo, who isn't more than 5'11". Warlord is ~6'3" and Martel is a bit closer to the camera here. Click Here
miko says on 21/Mar/14
Correct Dicksock, I meant to put Swagger at 6'5/6'5.5 no idea why I put 6'4, must have gotten him mixed up with Cesaro.

I remember Swagger stood side by side last year with Wade Barrett who is around 6'5.5 and he was barely shorter than Wade and he looked around 6 inches shorter than Big Show.

There is no way on Earth Swagger is under 6'5". I would bet anything on that. He looked only a few inches at the most shorter than ~6'7" Kane and his mugshot showed him to be barely under 6'6". Although, I'm aware some question the accuracy of that mugshot...

Here is a real interesting interview between ~6'4" Gorilla Monsoon and a prime Hulk Hogan:
Click Here

This is probably one of the best illustrations of how Hogan's height dramatically changes based on posture. At times, he looked Monsoon's height, while other times, he could look nearly 3" taller. It's important to note that this does not appear to be a gimmicky interview like the ones Monsoon would have with Bundy and Studd. In other words, it appears to really show the difference in their height with no camera tricks. It's possible that Hogan could have been in cowboy boots and have maybe an inch of footwear advantage. That would still make him around 6'6" in 1984.

By the way, from what I saw, Hogan looked to be about 4" taller than 6'0.5" John Cena tonight on Raw. His height is very inconsistent. He can look 6'2.5"-6'4" and in his prime he could look 6'4.5"-6'6".

PEAK HEIGHT FOR HULK HOGAN:
6'6" BAREFOOT
6'8" IN BOOTS
RP says on 8/Mar/14
Yep! I myself less over 0.25" an inch from morning to late night. Fresh out of bed barefoot I'm 5'11 1/4". Late night right before bed time I'm 5'10 7/8". And I'm just 38 years old & very fit, muscular, active & have never had any injuries or surgeries. It's easy to believe that a 60 year old man who's carrying around 260-275 lbs on a beat up frame, that's had dozens of surgeries on hip, knees, neck & back would lose close to an inch from morning to late night. Hogan most likely looses 0.75" during the day. Hogan being 6'4" morning & 6'3.25" at night is very, very believable & probable. Hogan himself claims 6'4.5" as his current height. I can absolutely believe this statement. If, it's his 1st thing in the morning barefoot height? Hogan morning: 6'4.5" & A 60 year old beaten up Hogan at night: 6'3.5" is very possible. Factor in his horrible posture over the past 10-15 years, and they'd why he can look only 6'2.75"-6'3" in the evening at times.

Shorter than 6'3 guys sometimes, taller than 6'4 guys others. Just very strange.

It's all about posture, Hulk is one of those that is constantly bent at the knees and leaning forward, which makes him appear shorter than he is, if he stands up straight he can still be near 6'5"

I'd say Hogan is a solid 6'4" today.

So, now that Hogan was shown and proven to have 2-3 inches or more on Shamus, and dwarfed Flair and other 6 foot guys can we please have his current height corrected here?

Hey, anyone can go check out a great picture of Hogan at the WWE training camp in Florida on his facebook page. In it you will see how he has the 6'2" Bill McDermott by 3 inches easily. Bill looks to have the thick soled high top sneakers on and Hogan in his wrestling boots, so no advantage either way there. Also, Hogan is slightly leaning forward and down a bit while Bill is stretching with his head high as it can be. If anyone goes back and looks for a Hugh Morris and Hogan tape from the WCW days you will see how Hogan had him by another couple of inches then. 6'4-5 inches now for sure, and definetly 6'7" tall all day long before. Monday night will erase any doubt when he is seen beside other wrestlers. Hulkamania is about to run wild again brothers!!!

You also have to consider the posture of both men. If DiBiase was standing as straight as Hogan, he'd only be about 1" shorter. Hogan's evening height is probably 6'3" and was 6'5.5" in his prime. He really seems to have let himself go after leaving TNA. I guess he has finally accepted that his wrestling days are over.

First, that’s a fake brick wall. Second, the only way you could ever compare the height of Hogan to that wall is if he were standing directly beside it and if we knew the height of each “brick” plus the “mortar.” Using your analysis, Hogan ends up with a 17.5 inch long noggin (~7 “bricks”).

You´re kidding right?

10" would be about Hogans complete headlength, Mr. T comes up to Hogans upperlip and then you still have to reduce Hogans 1.5" footwear-advantage.

Hogan comes out 6 inches taller barefoot, so 6´4.5" barefoot - same as next to Ray Davies.

I think Ali is a good reference point in comparing height with talle celebrities as we know hes good for 6"6". I dont think Hogan will likely stand fully straight for any reason as he is so beaten down, and going on personal experience relating to back/neck injuries, doing that would cause severe discomfort. Off-course i don't think Hulk would compare well to Ali but it would reflect his current height. 6'2-3" I'd say.

Great picture of Hogan and inoki Dicksock! But from that far away saying he looks 4.5 inches taller is not at all accurate. Use things around them as a reference, Hogan easily comes up another half foot - Inoki only comes up to Hogan's nose, and Hogan has a really large head especially at the top. This again clearly demonstrates how Hogan was 6'7" easily barefoot all day long.
O\'Davio says on 29/Jan/14
I don't think Hogan was ever 6'7 either. In his debut match for WWF the commentators estimated him to be "about 6'5".

Bear in mind this was his debut and they hadn't decided he would be billed to be huge yet.

So because of that I think he probably was about 6'5. 6'7 in his cowboys boots maybe.
Now he's aged a fair bit and had a lot of injuries and surgeries so that could put him down to 6'2 - 6'3.

Ali says;
I doubt that Hogan would ever let himself be billed shorter than he was.
Somehow i do not think that Hogan or any other wrestler has control over what their height gets billed at, that is the promoters. It is more than reasonable to think that whoever is left to make up the ads has to make up some information that they do not have at hand, simply put; they will error on the low side as often as they will the other way. Hogan himself from every interview when asked about his height seems to care little about what anyone thinks, if he was obsessed with being billed or believed to be taller than he was/is he would have made a point of standing his tallest i every interview or match he had. Quite the oppositr, he leans forward, bends his knees and tilts his head down all the time which makes him appear 3-4 inches shorter than he really is and that is why we have all these people who think he was or is shorter than he really is. In every photo or video where he stands straight and tall, Hogan always looked every bit 6'7" or within a hair of it until he started loosing height, and he looks over 6'4" today no problem. I would love to see a photo of you with him Ali, but you both have to be barefoot and standing tall so there are no variables.

Finally something that Ronster and I can agree on. I would never take any news article as the final word on anything. And I doubt that Vegas does either. He was only pointing out some previous billings and a news article to help substantiate his opinion. I doubt that Hogan would ever let himself be billed shorter than he was. I don't know his true height now or then, or even want to make a guess from pictures. He's truely a hard one to pin down (no wrestling pun intended) since he looks different in just about every picture he's in. If I were to meet him then, and only then, would I make a guess on his height, even after meeting Ferrigno and seeing pictures of them together.

The following was written by another poster on Lou Ferrigno's page, I'd have to say he says the truest and most accurate thing ever written on this website about most of it's posters!
There are a lot of men with small man syndrome on this site who are desperate to lower the heights to make themselves feel better.
Lou was clearly 6ft 4+ in his prime and Arnold was clearly close to his claimed 6ft2. Given the amount of fame these guys have had, if they were noticeably shorter than this it would have been well documented by now. Yes they are an inch or two shorter these days but that is normal...especially for most tall men. Photos and film are not suitable for determining TRUE heights due to camera angles, foot wear and even lighting. Unfortunately the average IQ seems to be incapable of comprehending this information and hence we have this pointless but very amusing discussion of their heights based on unknown camera angles of photos and video with them wearing shoes???

Vibram's own estimations have no consistency with a different height listed for Arnold's height in each post and this in itself is the ultimate proof that you don't really have a clue what you are talking about.
- The exact same is true about what is said on here and Andre's page and so on...

Merry Xmas

All heights peak

Tenta: 6'5.75
Jake the snake: 6'5
Andre: 7'
Undertaker: 6'8
Hogan: 6'6
Studd: fraction under 6'8. Would of loved to see him and undertaker in a stare down
Boss man: 6'4.75

These heights are based upon a ton of videos and comparisons Much like Rob think hogan is 6'3 these days

If Hogan was just about 6ft 5 peak no way Bossman was There was a guy on here years ago and he said he worked for the WWE AND He claimed Earthquake (John Tenta) was 6ft4 and that Taker was Taller than Studd which I can believe going how Taker looked next to hogan

Got a big LOL there! Bossman 6'5?! he was shorter than the legit 6'3 Typhoon(Ottman) and didnt even have a full inch on Sting, who according to himself, was "almost 6'2" so Bossman was 6'2 1/2 range tops.

Further on, Studd wasnt taller than the 6'4 1/2 Fralic... and Akeem/OMG was barely same height as Ottman. I guess a good footwear does the rest...
Ok, i realize you are obviously of poor eyesight or something else so here comes the reality you cannot either see or accept....
First the obvious one, Fralic was standing on his toes in that picture/video everyone uses to try and belittle Studd's height. There are others where you can easily see that Studd has him by 3 inches or more, because unlike what most on this site wish was otherwise Studd was minimum 6'8" and more like 6'9" at his "peak". Hogan's height was 6'7", just the fact that at least half the people on here who are crusaders to try and lower heights admit he was at least 6'6" proves just that, and sorry but he was listed at 6'9" at times and mostly at 6'8" throughout his WWF run in the eighties because as you pointed out they push their heights up an inch or two from their real ones. As for Typhoon and Bossman, in one post it is pointed out that Typhoon wore big lifts to get him up to 6'6" with Earthquake, but then you say Bossman was nevr 6'5" be3cause he looked slightly shorter in the ring???? Bossman was every bit 6'5" and probably closer to 6'6" before any height loss.

Dicksock, what is your "official" estimate for peak Hogan??? 6ft5.5-6ft6 is possible, I say.

__________

I think 6'6" is accurate. It's very possible that he could have woken up at 6'6.5" and gone to bed at 6'5.5". Right now I think he is about 6'4".

denali says on 20/Dec/13
well LU. my dad worked will fralics dad.he was 6.5 on the nose.and studd lived in saxonburgh on 10 miles from my house,after you have met these guys you can tell me how tall they are,sadly studd passed a few years ago.i work with the former exocutioner now.every height i posted was correct no matter what you may read else where.studd was 6.6 my friend used to lift with him in the late 70's. i dont add or take away any height,just the facts.ottman was 6-3 and when u see him in a studio pic he stood on a box to be same height as earthquake,in the ring he was almost 3 inches shorter than the quake,
Junior31 says on 20/Dec/13

Hogan is only marginally closer to the camera in the Bosworth picture. I'm talking a few inches. Some of you guys are really grasping at straws to downgrade Hogan's height.

I agree with dicksock, he´s not that close to the camera, he looks tall yes altough bosworth is obviously not 6'2.
I just wonder why so not many excuses when he looks tall, I don´t see the same effort when he looks "short" ;)

hogans peak height 6-5.75 no more no less,sid was 6-7 studd6-6. tenta 6.5.75. bossman 6.5. akeem 6.6 ,hulk was never 6-7.wwe usually bills the guys 2 inches over real height.

Yeah I met peak, I should realized he'd have lost height by then! Yeah, always looked fit for his age. As for Hogan, I think 6'6 range is believable, but he usually looks closer to 6'5. I think he was a little under 6'6 evening, but over 6'5, basically 6ft5.5 range. But I guy like him coulda lost close to 3cm morning to night at that, it's still not IMPOSSIBLE he'd hit 6ft7, in his 20's after a long sleep on his back, and a little under 6'6 evening. Though I doubt he ever measured himself minutes after to waking to find out..: But one thing for sure: this listing is the most we could give him, and 6ft5.5 is possible

I agree

Dicksock, the effect that the camera advantage has depends on several things. How close is the photographer to the subjects, what lense is on the camera, how high the camera is and how tall the subjects are. Even just a few inches can have a dramatic effect on the way the picture looks because of these things. It obviously had some effect on the picture with Bosworth and how much is up for debate. And Bosworth looks to actually be in the 6' range and not the listed 6'2" so if you want to go with 5" over his height for Hogan most people would probably be okay with that. Personally I think there's too much variation in Hogan's pictures to even make a guess using them. He's a tricky one for sure.

Lorne, McMahon was with HHH when I met them (having access to the flightline at the airport comes in handy). He seemed to be in the 5'11" to 6' even range. He's still in pretty good shape for his age though. I guess when you allow your employees to throw you around you have to be.
