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.

Hulk Hogan is 6'4" now. He is taller than Rock who is 6'3".

Peak height was 6'5.5"
RP says on 27/Jul/15
BTW...peak barefoot Ted Dibiase was 6'2.75"! He's 6'2" to 6'2.25" now in his early 60's.

Never even close to 6,6. Maybe 6,5 peak in the morning.....
er4smiths says on 27/Jul/15
62B - Dibiase is NOT 6'3.5" never was
RP says on 27/Jul/15
Gene Oakerlund 5'8" barefoot, and 5'9" in most dress shoes. I'm saying peak Hogan was 6'5.5"...6'5.75" possible ...but I've always gone 6'5.5"...making him 6'7.5" in cowboy boots in his prime. Making him 10.5" taller than Gene in Cowboys boots vs Gene's dress shoes. And IMO...in most interviews, Hogan in Cowboy boots looked 10.5" taller than Gene...about 9" & change in his wrestling boots in his physical prime. Please don't use the pics when Hogan is bending his knees or slouching to flex his arms.

@er4smiths you are a moron. I met him and he is 6'4" now. I seriously think you say ignorant things just to get a rise from people

Hogan 6'3.5" PEAK he WORE LIFTS AND CUSTOM COWBOY BOOTS WITH VERY HIGH HEELS
He appeared to be around 6'5"-6'6" in this type of footwear
Today is he 6'2"-6'2.5" AT BEST
There are other pictures of him with Hasselhoff where he is shorter. There are pics with Aikman where he is noticeably shorter.
My good friend met Hogan stoof with him for 5 minutes talking. He thought Hogan was more like 6'1

---------------------------------------------------------

Those would have had to have been some serious lifts in his boots when he wrestled 6'3 1/2" Dibiase back in 1979.

I agree with RP,a peak Hogan was no less than 6'5, its quite possible he was 6'5'5 to 6'6' in the late 70s to early 80s. I wouldn't be that surprised if he was a full 6'6 back then.

A 6’6” Hulk Hogan would be 6’8” in cowboy boots. How tall is Mean Gene then since Hogan in cowboy boots does not have a full head size on Gene here. Click Here Hogan’s probably age 30 or less here. Any noticeable height loss did not come until almost 20 years later.

Snoop Dog is not 6'5"! LOL! He's barely a weak 6'4", I'm gonna say his morning barefoot height is 6'3.75" @ best...6'5" in thick sneakers.

hulk hogan is a height liar

i'm 5ft6 and i would say he is 6ft2.5 and 6ft3.5 prime
RYAN11 says on 22/Jul/15
RP, get your facts before speaking. The court staTed Hogan had 22 inch arms, he simply did not argue it but never once did Hogan say his arms were anything but 24 inches. As for ersmiths, dude you are the one who is funny and can't seem to see straight. Pictures this year of Hogan with Hasselhoff at equal height, Snoop looking both an inch taller or shorter depending on the camera tilt or angle, Had the Rock by 2 inches, etc. But you go on with your bad self lol.
er4smiths says on 22/Jul/15
Snoop dog is NOT 6'5" he is 6'3" at best. Again, this has all been proven.

Cena who is minimum 6 feet barefoot all day long with Hogan recently at Google. The difference between this picture and all the ones the height reducing crusaders use on here is simply that this one shows Hogan actually stretching and standing up straight like he almost never does. He had Cena here by at least 5-6 inches with same footwear, what does this say about Hogan and his true height today?? He is right around 6'5" minimum.

There's not a proper picture of that event that shows anything near that.

Snoop dog is 6'5 so hogan isn't as tall but not much shorter 6'3.5is about right was 6'6 peak
er4smiths says on 20/Jul/15
ryan11 - I am starting to wonder about you! Lol
I always love reading your posts because I think how crazy is he gonna get this time?
Well you never disappoint! Hulk Hogan is NOWHERE NEAR 6'5" or 6'4" !!!! OMG are you
serious????!!! Just looks at the pics posted on this Forum thread and ANYone can see he's for certain no taller than 6'3" but in reality probably more like 6'1.5 - 6'2". 24" pythons???? You lost all credibility with that one dude. LMAO
RP says on 20/Jul/15
Ryan, during the steroid trials in the early 1990s, and the federal investigation specifically into Vince McMahon and the WWF...Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) & one of his personal DR's...Terry had to give a sworn deposition to his attorneys that was provided to the federal judge overseeing the case...The judge decided not to have Hogan come testify in actual real court because he thought it would be damaging to the youth of America Who had followed and Idolized Hulk Hogan. Therefore the judge just excepted Terry's sworn deposition as his testimony....which you can be convicted of perjury on all sworn depositions are the equivalent to sworn testimony an actual court...Aidan he is sworn deposition, Terry Bollea said at one point his arms were as large as 22"! Not 24"! So when his ass was on the line Hogan, actually told the truth and that the largest his arms actually ever measured 22 " inches...not 24"...Vince McMahon also had said the same things about Hulk Hogan....A few items that were notable from McMahon's testimony, was a whole Hogan was over 300 pounds with 22 inch arms. He was also never 6'7" barefoot! Peak Hulk Hogan was 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" barefoot.

The design on the side of the shoe is not the actual sole. You can look at the shape of the back the heel and plainly see the sole is not nearly that thick.
RYAN11 says on 17/Jul/15
RP, I don't count any of your pics and your estimates for difference in their height us way off. Hogan lifting his chin up doesn't make him any taller next to Cena, he was however standing up straight with his hands on his hips and chest pushed out like in a military posture. Hogan definetly looks 6'3-4" most of the time because of his bent knees and horrible posture, he is however clearly 6'5" or dam close to it when he actually stands up straight. As Danimal and a few others pointed out, he has lost at least 3 inches from having bone removed to insert new knees and hips. His back is still bent at the bottom and he had vertibra removed. He was well over 6'7" barefoot before aging and landing his 300 plus pound frame from over 6 feet in the air down on his hip and tailbone thousands of times. This is all on record and irrefutable, so anyone who says he was never that tall or hasn't lost 3 plus inches from his tallest is either dillusional or a bad liar. I have seen the man up close in 1988 and again last year where I stood next to him. He has lost a lot of height, and it is all in his neck, back and legs. He is however in great shape otherwise, definetly had 24 plus inch arms, they are still around 21 now and he is 61 years old. Massive man, great person and the entire reason most anyone watches wrestling now. Before him there was no ppv, and now they have their own channel which was all made possible by Hogan, he made wrestling along with Vince not the other way around.pe
joey says on 16/Jul/15
I think that we can believe the Hulkster saying he is almost 6'4". Anyway we can be proud of having all these great years with him. And even one or a half inch is not worth to be mentioned, i believe Hulk Hogan. When i saw him in Germany in the beginning 90-ties, his height was something round 6'51/2 (1,96 m) and now he can be 3 cm smaller so almost 1.93 m or 6'4". Anyway, Hulk Hogan, you are a terrific nice guy, am proud that people like you exist.
Danimal says on 15/Jul/15
A recent pic of Hogan. His lower body is shattered. Short, thin legs, due to multiple knee and hip replacements: Click Here

Don't tell me he towers over 75 year old invalid Iron Sheik who can barely stand himself after multiple knee, hip, and back replacements, including ankle fusions.
RP says on 13/Jul/15
John Cena is a legit 6'0.5" barefoot! And 237-247 lbs, depending on the time of year. He's usually always 240-243 the past few of years. After being 225-230 the majority of his career. And Hulk does look a legit 4" taller than John in the parking lot??? I'm not counting the other pic...Hogan's head is tilted up & John has a slight lean to him. But, we need confirmation on the footwear?? Maybe it's in the video? Didn't have time to watch it. Hogan in most appearances with Cena looks 3" taller....however, that's 3.75" to 4" difference in that parking lot pic.
184.3cm (Night) says on 13/Jul/15
He looks max 3 inches taller than Cena from most of those pics where we can see their feet. So yes he can look a big 6'3 still nowadays when fully stretched out.

Peak- 6'5.5" 197cm

Today- 6'3 191cm

He did well considering.

62B...you are correct! Young Barefoot Dennis Rodman was measured @ 6'6.5" & 6'6.625"...he was 6'7.5" to 6'7.75" in his basketball sneakers. Was listed at both 6'8" & 6'7" during his NBA career. Rodman in the mid 90's always looked 1.5" taller than Hogan...by the late 90's he looked a solid 2" taller. Karl Malone was measured "barefoot" @ 6'8.25" for the 1992 USA Olympic Basketball team.

I don't take that LA Rams height as the gospel. It's possible they measured him later in the day or maybe he had some type of injury affecting his posture.
___________

vader was never 6'4.5 or 6'3.5 either for that matter. he was shorter than the rock in 1997 face to face. take everything a pro-wrestler says (no matter who it is) with a grain of salt


hogan had knee problems before 2000. go watch his staredown with sting at halloween havoc 1999 and sting is shorter than the rock. his knee operation probably helped him stand a little straighter not look shorter.

when i saw hogan in person in april 2012 at a tna taping it was clearly obvious that his knees are the main issue, he couldn't bend them at all getting into the ring. we were right at the barrier ringside that night.
RP says on 10/Jul/15
Danimal is right about Hogan's two knee replacements from 2000-2002...he actually was going to retire for good at that point...but, talked himself into coming back for another short run in the WWE. It was the 2004 hip replacement @ age 50 that pretty much ended any type of mobility he had left for good.
62B says on 10/Jul/15
Danimal says on 9/Jul/15
Hogan still has height in 1998. Why he looked shorter in 2002 (his return to the WWE), where he was around the same height as The Rock (who we know was never over 6'2.5") was because in the Spring of 2001 (AFTER Hogan left the WCW) both of his knees were replaced), hence why he looked shorter from 2000 to 2002. He lost even more height in 2004 when his first hip replacement was done. Anyway, he stacked up pretty good next to 6'7"-6'8" Dennis Rodman in 1998: Click Here

_____________________________________________________________________

I always thought Rodmans real height was 6'6 1/2". I could be wrong. For sure during Hogans peak years he was in the 6'5 1/2" to 6'6" range, by 98 I bet he was more like 6'4 1/2" to 6'4 3/4". Today he seems to be in the 6'3" range.

If Vader is 6'3.5 then I guess Rock's 6'5 claim is spot on haha.
RP says on 9/Jul/15
Wasn't Leon White listed @ 6'3" by the LA Rams?? So...how does that translate to 6'4.5"??? Unless when Big Leon Vader White gives his legit height in person...it's his height with boots on???
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jul/15
Can look 6ft3-4 today
IronFist says on 6/Jul/15
Vader has always been extremely honest about his height and weight. He said his true height was 6'4.5 in a 1998 shoot interview with RF Video.

Here's a great nose-to-nose two shot of Vader and Hogan from the WCW days: Click Here

I'd say Hogan is beating Vader by a good inch there. Both men are wearing thick soled wrestling boots. This comes as a shock to me since I always thought Hogan was 6'4 tops. Then again, this is before many surgeries so I don't know. I still don't buy him as ever being 6'7. Apparently none of us do.

Yeah, but word is that Vince McMahon SR. had Terry (Hulk) wear 1"fits in his wrestling boots in his first run with the WWF from '78-'80 to make him look even bigger! They wanted him to appear larger than life! He was a legit 6'5.5" & 305 lbs then...however, they wanted to be "The Incredible" Hulk Hogan & billed him @ 6'8" & anywhere from 320-339 lbs!! So, he wore 1" lifts to make the 6'8" look more legit.

I might have been wrong about Hogan only being 6'6" peak. I just watched his very 1st match with The million dollar man from either 78 or 79 and he was every bit of 4" taller and Ted was 6'3" legit. Maybe 6'7" is true when he was young.
62B says on 3/Jul/15
I found this video of Hogan and Dibiase in 1979. I know Rob has Dibiase listed as 6'3", but he was really more like 6'3 1/2 to 6'3 3/4. I met him at the YMCA while working out in the early 1990's, there were mirrors everywhere, I could tell he was slightly taller than I was, and I was usually measured between 6'3" and 6' 3 1/4".

risky6 says on 3/Jul/15
Andre was at the very most 7'1" and maybe 7'4" with boots and his afro but when he died he measured a little over 6'10" thats a fact. Hogan is not under 6'4" now but is no more another fact and he was at the most 6'6" and more likely 6'5.75 afternoon barefoot.
RP says on 2/Jul/15
RYAN, taking into consideration that Inoki's true barefoot height was 6'1.5",,, all that shows is a 6'5" to 6'5.5" Hogan...I'll go 6'5.5" since he's got. Slight lean into Linda there...and it shows a 6'11" Andre The Giant. If..."if" he's not getting a 1" footwear advantage from cowboy boots?? Then it shows us a 6'10ish Andre! And it sure looks like he's wearing 2" healed Cowboy boots there?? Hogan & Inoki are both in 1" healed tuxedo dress shoes.
RYAN 11 says on 1/Jul/15
Look at the attached pictures, first of Andre with the actor from the princess bride and look at how much bigger his head really was to that of the average man's. You could fit almost two heads into Andre's, so yes nay Sayers his head from chin to top was at least 15-16 inches, which proves how he was way over 7 feet tall. The people who continuously use pictures of 6 and a half foot men coming up to Andre's nose or mouth to say he was never over 6'11" are ignoring the obvious truth they do not want to admit about the size of Andre and his head hands and feet especially, they all kept growing until his death at an accelerated rate. As well i will attach another picture of Hogan with Andre proving that Hogan had to be at least 6'7" if not more. Just for the record, i would agree that Andre had the frame of a guy just under 7 feet, but his head made him way taller than that. Look for yourselves (especially you Rob, serious upgrades in order in my opinion).

John Tenta measured 6’5 ¾” Click Here and, with a footwear disadvantage, still looked a little taller than Hogan in the ring.

Barkley is around 6’6”. Rob’s listing is at least an inch off here. Barkley had Mean Gene by a full head size Click Here whereas Hogan never did unless he was wearing big-heeled cowboy boots and then it was no more than a full head size if that. Barkley’s head is not any smaller than Hogan’s either. This is Hogan in cowboy boots and Barkley standing in the same spot in the same WCW Nitro ring from 1995. Click Here

6’8” Karl Malone with Gene Click Here Click Here Andre in cowboy boots with Gene Click Here Now let’s wait for the upgrade of Gene to 6’0”....

Barkley is clearly taller than Hogan in every pic, about 1-1,25".
Perhaps Barkley meant 6-5,75 not 6-4,75. 6-4,75 is totaly nonsense. That makes The Rock 6-1,25 - 6-1,5 and Hugh Jackman 6-0,75. Barkley was 1,25" taller (6-6,25) than Jordan (nba-measured 6-5 w/o shoes): Click Here
Barkley is about 6-5,75 now.

Look at this 2015 pic of Hogan's legs/hip area. Look how short they got. He used to have LONG legs connected to his original hips. Ever since one of his hip replacements or knee replacements, they must have cut away a big part of his femur, because you can tell that those legs/hips belong to a shorter man.

Good point, Danimal...Terry is a very very frail man now from the waist down. He has no legs at all now! And check out the 1996 pic of Hogan, Hall & Nash...Hogan's lower body is almost just as long as 6'9" Kevin Nash's!! Yes, Hogan has a 0.75" to 1" footwear advantage in that pic...however, Hogan still is very comparable to Nash in lower body length in 1996.

62B says on 20/Jun/15
Just my 2 cents, but he was slightly taller in 1980 or 81 than my Grandfather who was supposed to be 6'5" at the time. I'd venture a guess at 6'5.5" to maybe 6'6" in the very early 80's, I doubt he was ever any taller. I'd like to meet Hogan now. I am about 6'2.75" and I would be surprised, based on what I've seen on TV that Hogan is much, if any taller than I am. I know he is nearing 70, and has had a lot of surgeries, but 3" is a lot of height to loose, and about the most I would believe.

HeightcrazyRed6ft - A few years back I took boxing lessons at Franks's Rising Sun Gym in Atascocita, Tx. He was often there... and 5'9" would be spot on!! I had no idea who he was... but my daughter took lessons with me and let me know. Frank seems to be very puffed up about himself. Which is fine. He has done well.

He's shorter than 6'3" Snoop Dogg. So more like the 6'2" range now. That's a massive loss of height from age, all the knee and back surgeries.

he doesent seem to be looking over 6'2 these days
RYAN11 says on 8/Jun/15
Nice to see someone on here with an unbiased true opinion of Hogan's height. I have said all along that he is still over 6'4" if he stands straight, problem is he seldom does. As for the shoes he wears, yes those are thick soled runners which at best give him a half inch advantage over anyone else's runners except of course those basketball shoes. He stands with his knees together and hunched with knees bent lowering him a couple of inches at least and then we get the geniuses who immediately say oh look he's only 6'3"!!! No, he lowers himself to that height at times, when he stands up he is still over 6'4" and was clearly 6'7" in his 20's barefoot.

I am 6'in my Nike trainers which i had on last week when me and my brother visted his beach shop. We met Cousin Luke who in his Adidas was the exact same height as me. My brother is 5'7" in shoes and in the pictures with Luke looks almost 5" shorter. We met Hulk and he was in flip flops and was every bit of 3" to 4" taller than me. A weak 6'4" but no less. Not 6'5" not 6'4 + but flat 6'4" the difference between me and him was almost identical to my brother and Luke as well as myself almost 5". The dude is still 6'4" maybe 6'3" by the end of the day. We met him around 10:30 in the mourning. He talked to us and was a very nice guy he said he had just got back from some event in Connecticut for a childrens hospital. Luke was bigger than i thought he would be all the references i have found say hes 5'9" but there is no way because i looked him eye to eye and in the pics we are equal and again im 6' even in my shoes he had very good posture he also give me a card to work out in his gym for 7 days for free which he said was above the Hogan store. Hulk had bad posture but i could definitely see a younger Hulk hitting 6'6" he might still hit a super weak 6'5" right out of bed standing totally straight but thats just me guessing. I am 100% sure though he is still hitting 6'4" on a good day early to mid mourning and im not a mark or a height giver or taker like alot of the people who post here. I'm sure i will be called a liar or some dumb s#$t like that and thats fine i really don't care but i know my height and i also know what 4 to 5 inches looks like and he was almost 5" taller than me in flip flops not beefed up shoes.

@Ryan11, my good friend who is 5'9.5" stood face to face with Hogan, talked for over 5 minutes and I have a picture of it. He guessed Hogan @ 6'1" - I'll be kind and say Hulk is 6'2" right now. If someone would please tell me how to post pics on this site I will. Lastly, his first comment to me (without me saying anything) was "Man, Hulk is short in person, I was expecting him to be huge"

RP - News flash - Nash was guesstimating their heights and he is 6'10" tall barefoot not in shoes. Hall who was there at the same time meeting Hogan for the first time said quote that Hogan was about 6'6", so there goes any reliability to what any of them say. For sure Hogan was not 6'8", he was down around 6'6", and being 4 inches shorter than Nash he would be looking at the top of Hogan's head!! As for Andre, when did Nash meet him? When he was broken down and hobbling around on a cane, so yeah barely 7 feet hunched on a cane, good job you really got them pegged down at your rediculously low heights there!

Yep, true...Nash has always said on multiple occasions that he was shocked when he first got called up by the WWF that the wrestlers were not nearly as big as he had thought for years!!! He has given both Hogan & Andre as examples in multiple interviews. On Hogan he has said, "I always thought the dude was 6'8" and I meant him for the first time I was like damn! He's only like 6'4" or 6'5" & I can see the top off he's head...I was expecting to be almost looking eye to eye with the man" and he has mentioned before that he grew up believing Andre was 7'4" or 7'5" & he was actually barely 7'0"!!! Nash also always refers to himself as 6'10" in interviews...which is his obvious height in shoes...cause big Kev is only 6'9" barefoot! So...was Nash also saying that Hogan in the early 1990's was only 6'4" & change to 6'5" in shoes?? And that Andre was barely scraping 7'0" in shoes?? Hmmm?

Barkley is around 6’6”. Rob’s listing is at least an inch off here. Barkley had Mean Gene by a full head size Click Here whereas Hogan never did unless he was wearing big-heeled cowboy boots and then it was no more than a full head size if that. Barkley’s head is not any smaller than Hogan’s either. This is Hogan in cowboy boots and Barkley standing in the same spot in the same WCW Nitro ring from 1995. Click Here
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


I think no logic thinking person can argue with this comparison, Barkley is 0.4-0.5" taller than Hogan and Hogan has 1" footwear advantage.

If Barkley was 6´4.75"/195cm, Hogan was around 6´3.25" in 1995 wich would make Sid Eudy about 6´5" during that time...
Even Barkley at a more realistic 6´5.5" would make Hogan 6´4" there...

Maybe Nash was closer with his estimation than we ;)) Click Here

Imo Hogan in cowboyboots was 6´6"-6´6.25" there and a half inch taller at peak.
1995 Hogan barefoot 6´4.5" , peak 6´5"

@Ryan11 - sorry, I can't admit to an obvious lie. Charles Barkley is not close to 6'7", also it seems like you only go by height WITH shoes (whether lifts or not). Hulk Hogan is nowhere near 6'4" period. There is so much obvious evidence to this, I'm baffled at how you can't see it.

Can everyone please at least admit to the obvious truth about Barkley? He is clearly 6'7" barefoot or taller just by his mugshots. Why is it so hard to believe that they get heights wrong the other way around??? Anyone can write down any stat or number they like, Barkley always looks 6'7-8" and the mug shot is the only actual measurement that we have to go by, everything else is just hearsay. Hogan was 6'7", a guy loosing 3-4 inches of height after all the damage to his spine, countless surgeries removing bone from his hips and knees, and the curve at the bottom of his spine everyone can look up a picture of along with his age could have him loose a half a foot easily. So yes, he is 6'4" or a bit better when he stands up today, and easily was 6'7" before all the bumps and surgeries. Pictures do not lie, he has clearly lost a significant amount of height over the years, don't forget to look at other guys in similar careers like Billy Graham who was 6'4" or more and now can barely scrape 6 foot after having both hips replaced along with all sorts of other health issues from his steroid abuse and wrestling career.

The Barkley picture is higher than the Hogan one, you can see by the position of the ropes and the floor of the ring. Barkley is also higher on the floor of the ring in the 2d picture. All that would give him a much bigger advantage than a pair of cowboy boots so Hogan is actually the taller one in that case.
Whatever height that would make him I don't know, but probably about 6'5 or 6'6.
miko says on 29/May/15
Hogan and Hall were always close in height, both around 6'5 prime, Hall did seem to have the slight edge when they came back to the WWE in 2002 though.

You can clearly see that Jenner was wearing cowboy boots.

Click Here

And you can clearly see that Hogan was also wearing cowboy boots. So, there is probably little to no footwear advantage for either man.

If Jenner was a legit 6'2" then Hogan appears to have been at least 6'5" and possibly even more than 6'5" at that time because Hogan seemed to have at least 3" on him.

JT, that an episode of the Love Boat 1985/1986?? Those are not leather pants. They were actually the old school black Adidas work out pants with the 3 white strips down the leg. Hogan was actually in sneakers in those scenes. Just check it out on YouTube. And yes, peak Jenner was 6'2".

Junior31...you could be onto something. That would explain why Hogan looks 6'4.25" in those Jordan's at all his WWE appearances...but everywhere else in other footwear looks 6'3.25"
er4smiths says on 18/May/15
@Junior31 - yes dude I've noticed they do look like he's wearing some very lifted Jordan's.
People refuse to accept what's behind the curtain as its smoke and mirrors. Hogan has become a master of camera angles as well. He always stands in the favorable height advantage spot of the picture shot. I am 6'1.75" and with Nike AirMax I am over 6'3" - so if he's wearing lifts inside the already big soled Jordan's then skies the limit on how tall he can look lol. Just look at the pics of him with Troy Aikman - that closes the case on him being over 6'2.5" at best!
184.3cm (Night) says on 18/May/15
Yeah i factored in a 1 inch shoe advantage. I still think 6 inches difference so 6'5-6'5.5" i believe rather than 6'5.5"-6'6.

That pic JT of Lister has me searching for my copy of No Holds Barred VHS as i would have sworn that Hogan's head would have been longer.

I used this screen shot Click Here If Lister recalled looking Hogan eye to eye when in comparable footwear, they were basically the same height (i.e., 6'5"). One reason why Hogan’s head seems above-average in size is b/c he could never develop any width to his shoulders, which weren’t very wide even on steroids Click Here Click Here and especially when he cut back Click Here
Are you friggin serious?? Who do you think will buy these posts?? Hogan's shoulders are massive to this day, i now know you have never seen him in person or you would never say something so ridiculous. Lister has a massive dome of a head like Hogan yes, Hogan's shoulders could only look smaller because of his huge head. The picture to try and make his shoulders out to be small with Leno is pathetic, Hogan is standing sideways and Jay has a breasted suit on with extra padded and wide shoulders built in. Hogan was within a half inch in that picture with Lister as Zues, and Lister had a min 2" footwear advantage so there goes your 6'5" stuff, your own pictures prove Hogan was still well over 6'6" at that time so thank you.
Have a nice day :)

I went and watched it again (No Holds Barred) and Lister does have a pretty big head as well. Never really noticed that before maybe because he is bald or something.

Next to Jay Leno there he looks maybe 6 inches taller maybe a fraction more. Leno was 5'11 peak wasn't he?

My bad on Nick's height, you are right at 6'4". Hogan is within a half inch and he is always standing with his knees bent remember. Look at the picture of him with the guy over 6'5" RoelC posted, Hogan is leaning forward with his knees bent and if you look at the tops of their heads he is still within an inch. Hogan is still over 6'4" when he stands up straight, as for the never over 6'5.5" stuff, wow that basically would make every other person he ever stood by in the eighties or 70's 2 inches shorter than they really were.

Ryan! Dude?? What are you looking at?? Nick is a professional rugb player & a great one at that! He's 6'4" barefoot...NOT 6'5"! And he has 1.25" to 1.5" inches on Hogan. But, what we can't see his Hogan's knees! The one thing we've learned re most about judging Hogan's height w/others is that we must always see his knees & how bent they are. Hogan seems to always bend his knees 1" to 1.5" ever since his mid 50's do to his back & hip problems. A bent knee'd Hogan does always look 6'2.5"...however, a straight legged Hogan is 6'3.5"!!!

Listen to "Zeus" Tiny Lister 1:45 onwards when he met peak Hogan.
"Me and Hulk are both 6´5" in real life"
They gave him shoes to look taller and he was about 6´7" in them.
So now we take the word of Tiny Lister over all other evidence showing and proving that Hogan was 6'7"?? A guy who was a roid freak and a part bit movie player, he was close to Hogan's height but never as tall. And those boots he wore gave him an extra 3 inches over whatever Hogan had on at the time easily.

Adam list himself @ 6'8"...however he was once meaured barefoot @ 6'7.25" by the World Powerlifting Association. His body weight fluctuates anywhere from 320 lbs to as heavy 380 lbs! Adam once competed in a Strong Man competition @ 384 lbs. He trimmed down to 315 when he went through the WWE boot camp about two years ago. He is now about 325-330. But, yeah...he calls himself 6'8"...but his true documented barefoot height is 6'7.25"...this once again puts Hogan @ 6'3.25" to 6'3.5" barefoot. Adam Scheer can be found on Face Book of you want to confirm all this yourselves.

Funny how you claim to know him personally and yet don't know how to spell his last name correctly! It's Adam Scherr, not Adam Scheer.
There's a World Powerlifting Federation and a World Powerlifting Alliance, but a World Powerlifting Association, that I'm unfamiliar with. Apparently Google aswell, cause there are no matches for a World Powerlifting Association.

Maybe you should do something useful with your time, instead of continuously spreading these fake measurements on this website!

Lister was 6'5 with 2 inch boots so 6'7. Lister and Hogan were the same roughly the same height in WWF. So Hogan is either 6'6 barefoot with 1 inch boot heels as they look or 6'5 with 1 inch boot heels and 1 inch internal lifts. The boots he wore in the movie had thicker boot heels than his WWF boots.


His WWF boots @ Survivor Series didn´t give him 2", he clearly refered to the big ones making him taller than Hulk, he for sure didn´t say they made me 6´7" with boots to look Hulks height - so your post is garbage!

JT, that is Adam Scherr with Hogan. He is billed at 6'8 in strongman competitions and looks pretty much same height as Brian Shaw in photos and Shaw looked just a little shorter than Hafthor Julius Bjornsson.
singer5@att.net says on 2/May/15
This is some advice from an Old school wrestling fan. I got to see Roddy Piper when I was about 10 years old in LA. And I saw Hogan more than Once in Los Angeles. Hogan was very tall. 6'6" was his height. He was taller than Hill Billy Jim and eye to eye with Akeem. I had a friend who was 6'2" in his prime, and he shrunk to about 5'10" before he passed. Take a look at your Grand Pas, they also appear smaller too. Or, wait till you reach closer to 50, you'll know what i mean. Cheers and keep the interest about heights going.

Click Here Not sure about this guy’s height – maybe 6’6”ish. He’s shorter than Ed Jones, who’s probably 6’8” tops these days. Click Here
Boss says on 30/Apr/15
Hulk Hogan was 6'6 peak. He was the same height as measured 6'6 John Tenta with roughly same size boot heels. He was taller than 6'5-6'5.5 HillBilly Jim. He was taller than 6'5 Lister but Lister had huge footware advantage. He looked 6'6 with James Buster Douglas, Muhammad Ali, Jake Roberts, and many more. If he was somehow only 6'5 barefoot peak than the McMahon story about buying Hogan a 1000$ robe and wrestling boots with lifts in them so they could bill him taller are true.

Listen to "Zeus" Tiny Lister 1:45 onwards when he met peak Hogan.
"Me and Hulk are both 6´5" in real life"
They gave him shoes to look taller and he was about 6´7" in them.

Click Here

So Zeus at 6´7" looks a solid inch taller than Hulk and Hulk is in footwear too.
Conclusion Hulk in footwear barely 6´6".

6´6" barefoot evening = impossible for Hulk.


Rob do you think Listers statement is worth adding to the top here?
RYAN11 says on 24/Apr/15
I wasn't going to dignify such a poor attempt JT but for the sake of those easily fooled by your pictures I will point out and state the obvious that anyone who understands camera depth and angle can point out in a second. The pictures you posted oFriday Hulk with Chris I will address first, the one to the right is shot at a bad angle with Hogan being further from the camera, and in both as you failed to mention he is standing with horrible posture as his knees are clearly bent considerably and he is leaning down towards Chris while Lloyd stands straight as an arrow, that changes the real height difference by at least 2" alone. Now on to the really laughable attempts you made here. Macho is wearing his hat which was 6 inches above the top of his head, and Hogan was still a bit taller while leaning in towards Randy who was at least 6 feet tall. The warrior one is also a joke, Warrior was over 6'2", and his hair gave him another 3inches to make him look 6'5" and yet Hogan els still taller by a few inches. The difference in the picture I posted and the one with Warrior are that Hogan was actually standing straight without leaning or bending his knees and that is the only time you ever get to see his real height. Back to the drawing board JT. As for your comment on my picture of them, they are both on their outside leg with it straight and even ground shot at a level angle with no advantage aside from Hogans sneakers giving him an extra inch over Chris'a shoes as I pointed out. All you did was pull out the usual pictures shot at bad angles with Hogan standing in bad posture as usual.

Follow this link, Hogan may have at most a 1" shoe advantage, but he and Chris are on level ground and equal distance and posture aside from Hogan having his head tilted down. Lloyd is 6'1" at this point in time according to Rob himself on this site. So HeightcrazyRed6ft, that makes Hogan 6'7' tall barefoot minimum in this picture since Chris only comes up to his chin at best and Hogan has at least a 10" tall head - PERIOD!!!!! LMFAO

Nice camera tilt and comparing people at different points in their strides. That’s as reliable a pic as is this where Hogan looks 6'2" Click Here Hogan in platform boots had roughly 5 inches on Lloyd in topsider shoes with less than a 1 inch heels. Click Here

Let's try as I have said before to put bias and opinions aside and look at it for what it is. Editor Rob does a great job estimating heights on here from pictures,but they are just that "estimates"....

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________


So you see... I hope...
Everything YOU look at it for what it is, it´s still YOUR estimation /opinion, so sorry your post is complete garbage.

Hogan never looked 6´7" without cowboyboots, proved clearly next to Mr.T who is a great reference.
Tiny Lister told the truth, he could have keeping it kayfabe but he clearly said he was 6´5" then and Hogan was 6´5" in real life back then, he even mentioned they (WWF) gave him footwear making him 6´7" to look clearly taller than Hulk... So pretty clear Hogan was never anywhere near 6´7" or 6´6" PERIOD

Peak 6´5"-6´5.25"
today solid 6´3" with a chance of 6´3.5"
RYAN11 says on 21/Apr/15
This site has a peak Hogan at 6'6" and today at 6'3". Hogan has said repeatedly that he was 6'7" and is now almost 6'5" after getting major surgery which straightened his spine somewhat. Let's try as I have said before to put bias and opinions aside and look at it for what it is. Editor Rob does a great job estimating heights on here from pictures,but they are just that "estimates". Hogan makes up things all the time when in kafabe as the wrestlers put it. You can tell when he is making up figures such as Andre's weight at WM3 because it changes from 600 to as much as 700lbs. He has never swayed from stating out of character that he was 6'7", and all the pictures or videos from the late 70's into the 80's supports that height very easily as he towered over known men in the 6'2-4" range all the time having 3-4" on them every time without cowboy boots or any other advantage. He was billed at 6'8-9" by the WWE for his entire first run with them. He is today over 6'4", and again too many picturea and videos easily support that as well. He has no reason to make up a taller height, he has lost a lot of height to his countless surgeries on his back, knees and hips. He is 61 years old, my grandfather who was 6'4" in his youth was down to a little over 6' at the same age simply due to posture and never had any of the operations or damage to his body that Hogan had. He lost 3-4" of height, he got an inch or so.back from his last operation and as he ages will get shorter again. Let it go people, there is no point in trying to make him some lower height you want him to be. A massive man still today and even bigger before, the man Hulk Hogan!
RP says on 18/Apr/15
Walking Tall, those style cowboy/western boots raise you up exactly 2" from your barefoot height. Hogan appears to have 6" on Leno there?? Hogan in 2" Cowboys boots & Leno in 1" dress shoes gives you a 1994 Hulk Hogan being 5" taller than Jay Leno.

@jim1972 look dude - this is getting out of hand. No need for personal public slamming over Hulk Hogan's true height. You have your opinion and I have mine. I apologize for anything I've done to get this to a point where you're actually ok with saying I look like a "Tool" and that my now WIFE is my "sister or a hooker." 6'3" is a great height you're lucky! I wish I was that height myself. Can we just call a truce here and agree to disagree? I honestly am not purposely trying to downgrade or take away from the Hulkster. If he is truly 6'4" I'd be all for it - my personal opinion based on a lot of research is he is shorter than that. But if you think he is then I'm totally cool with that. Life is too short (pun intended) to slam each other over something so trivial you know? Anyway hope you will accept!

The best way to deal with this ersmith's clown is to simply ignore everything he posts as it is so ridiculous that everyone on both sides of the height debate agree he is a fool just trying to stir up Cap. As for Hogan with Mounties kid, he is just under 6'6", and hogan has his knees bent like always dropping him by over an inch yet he is still no more than 2 inches less. Solid 6'4" for Hogan there, he would have had him by an inch in the old days.
WalkingTall6ft3.35 inches says on 17/Apr/15
His peak height is overestimated i think because he walked in cowboy boots most of the time and therefore had footwear advantage over everyone.Here's an example of his usual footwear back in the day when he appeared on Jay Leno's show Click Here
How much height do those gave him Rob?

The more I look at Lou Ferrigno's pics and see different recent pics of Hulk and taking into consideration he obviously fabricates his height and others. It's becoming really obvious he is 6'2" tops now. I've heard from multiple sources of people that back in the 70's 80's he was no more than 6'3.5" tops
I know "fan boys" want him to be 6'6" or more peak and "NO WAY LESS THAN 6'4" I SWEAR I'M 6'5" IN FLIP FLOPS AND HE WAS LOOKING DOWN AT ME" those always kill me. It is a FACT he was noticably shorter than Troy Aikmam - by minimum 2 inches - it is also a FACT that he is about the same height as Lou Ferrigno. Lou is DEFINITLEY NOT over 6'2" now. It's also a FACT he was shorter than Snoop Dogg who is 6'3" AT BEST. I really can't understand why all this is so hard for people to swallow.. This isn't us trying to be mean or difficult or take away from a legend - it's just the truth.

Swagger is 6'5.5 - 6'5.75 and Barrett is a slight taller at 6'6 even I believe.
Oldjoeshish says on 8/Apr/15
Well, from some of the pictures posted here and videos of him in the ring recently, he's taller than John Cena, The Rock, Roman Reigns, Mark Henry, Seamus, Antonio Cesaro, Ezekiel Jackson, Edge, Triple H and Brock Lesnar who are all over 6 foot.

However he appears shorter than Snoop Dogg who is 6'4. So he appears taller than 6'3 but shorter than 6'4.
I seriously can't say how tall he is based on this evidence. It all comes back to him being 6'6 in the 70's and early 80's and comes down to him being old and losing height because of surgery. So with that you would have to assume he's about 6'3.

I just noticed that masonry wall has an in ground coarse of block in it that starts with the wall footing/foundation. Meaning...the exterior coarses start out on a 1" lip. So, therefor that masony block line above Jack's head is 6'9.625"!! Meaning Jack Swagger is standing about 6'7.5" in those dress shoes...maybe even 6'7.75"?? Jack was always said to be 6'5.5" barefoot??? Hmmmm wonder if he's a lift wearer???
RP says on 6/Apr/15
The masonry blocking just above Jack's head is at least 6'8"...but, actually a tad over...you add 1/16" of an inch or 0.0625" with each coarse of block for the mortar seel layer. So, it's actually 6'8 5/8" or 6'8.625" make Jack Swagger about 6'6.5" in dress shoes...maybe 6'6.75"

Not sure where to post this, so I'm posting it on a couple of the wrestling pages. Just watched the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame and when the Bushwackers came out, I was SHOCKED. One of the Bushwackers is now close to a foot taller than the other one. He has a cane and clearly has undergone the all too common SEVERE height loss that many of these wrestlers have undergone over the years. These 2 men used to be about the same height, but I assure you (watch it for yourself), one of them is almost a foot taller than the other one today.

Nice pics JT, the usual ones used to make Hogan look shorter. The camera angle is from below which makes Joakim look that much taller over him. Here is one shot at a much more level angle where both are at fairly equal posture, notice how Hogan's head comes to Joakim's nose, that leaves at most 5-6 inches between them. Joakim asd it was pointed out by JT is 6'10.5" barefoot, so that means Hogan is between 6'4.5-6'5.5 inches minimum!

...I don't claim to know how much or often Hogan bends his knees, especially for promos like the one posted with Snoop, backstage. But, I watched the whole clip (backstage one), and never once did I get the impression Hogan was as tall as Snoop. Were Hogan's knees bent the entire time? Maybe, but I tend to doubt it. And, Hogan was closer to the camera, giving him a slight edge. He still never looked as tall as Snoop.

That looks spot on as Peyton Manning: 6'5.25" & Hulk Hogan: 6'3.5"!!

Let's end this selection of certain pictures to make Hogan look shorter than he really is shall we? Follow this link to the video of Snoop and Hogan backstage at Raw, Hogan remember is always standing with knees bent slightly lowering himself by an inch at least. He is still equal in height to Snoop, and Snoop is over 6'4" tall and that is according to every reliable source including this very web site! So Hogan is also minimum 6'4" with his knees bent, meaning he really is 6'5" if he stands straight!! LOL at 6'2-3" for Hogan.

You can't see their footwear so I don't know if Dustin is wearing cowboy boots or not. Nonetheless, Hogan has the camera tilt advantage but Snoop Dogg is standing closer to the camera than Hogan so the camera tilt/distance advantage may be cancelled out between the two men.

Here is the best pic you will get of Hogan and Snoop. They both appear to be standing up straight. They are pretty damn close in height. Plus or minus foot wear. Hogan is still in the 6'4" range. His head is so big it gives him weird ability to look shorter sometimes. I also saw him at the Arnold expo and he's definitely not below 6'3". He was slouching a lot, and his knees seemed slightly bent. 6'4" is not out of the question. He's still massive in person.

@jim1972 @ryan11 i'm not a height troller. just a regular guy like you all. im actually a nice guy as well, so i'm not trying to ruffle feathers or just say "stupid $h&t" as you assume below. He's obviously not 6'4" now and like I said, I have actual proof. It's no big deal to me what either of you think just as you don't care what i think. That's totally cool! What I am basing (my opinion)on is (for me) solid proof. My good friend has met Hogan and I have the pic of them standing next to each other talking. I know how tall my friend is and I know how it looks when I am standing next to him as well. Funny thing is, I asked my friend how tall he thought Hogan was and his exact words were "I couldn't believe how short he was in person, I was thinking he would be 6'8" but he looked about 6'1"" So anyways, I do think on this page it's 98% opinion without real solid proof. So again, sorry to get you so annoyed, that isn't my intention at all. My goal or objective is to find definitve proof of Hogan's true legit height. That's all.
John B says on 24/Mar/15
When you think about it, from the early 80's they were having Hogan's height at 6'8 and that's carried on to this day. We are talking about over 30 years ago anyone and every will change in looks, weight and height from over 30 years ago. Let's look at Wrestlemainia 1,we had Piper,Ornduff vs Hogan and Mr.t and let's put these 4 in the ring today and compare them to 1985 Piper has lost like 5 inches in height, Paul Ornduff looks like an old women, Mr T has lost size and looks a lot shorter, so when we comes to Hulk Hogan who as I write this is now 61, had over a dozen back surgerys, hip replacements, knee replaced then throw in wear and tear and age it's no wonder his lost so much height. So if your wondering why Hulk Hogan is looking shorter it's because this is not 1980's anymore and as time goes on Hogan will lose more height and size so before he passes to the great man in the sky Hogan may be around 6 foot 220 pounds .......

When you think about it, from the early 80's they were having Hogan's height at 6'8 and that's carried on to this day. We are talking about over 30 years ago anyone and every will change in looks, weight and height from over 30 years ago. Let's look at Wrestlemainia 1,we had Piper,Ornduff vs Hogan and Mr.t and let's put these 4 in the ring today and compare them to 1985 Piper has lost like 5 inches in height, Paul Ornduff looks like an old women, Mr T has lost size and looks a lot shorter, so when we comes to Hulk Hogan who as I write this is now 61, had over a dozen back surgerys, hip replacements, knee replaced then throw in wear and tear and age it's no wonder his lost so much height. So if your wondering why Hulk Hogan is looking shorter it's because this is not 1980's anymore and as time goes on Hogan will lose more height and size so before he passes to the great man in the sky Hogan may be around 6 foot 220 pounds .......

i 100% agree about er4smiths he always height trolls even on others height pages. I dont know if Hogan was ever 6'7" but 6'6" all day long when he was younger and 6'4" now but there are some people on here who are super height trollers and will go out of there way to downgrade people read through the comments and you will see all of them. People are allowed to have there opinions but some of the stupid s#&t that comes out of there words on here is just plain ignorant.

RYAN11 says on 20/Mar/15
er4smiths, you seem to always have a very negative attitide towards Hulk Hogan in everything you post on here so I won't take anything you say seriously as i doubt anyone else will either. What i think is really interesting, and i think a lot of people who come on here are unaware of is how years ago Hogan was being debated over whether he was really the 6'8-9" he was billed at throughout the 80's in the WWE, and back then the very same posters who relntlessly keep saying he is or was shorter said he was really only 6'7" or 6'6", the same guys who now say he was nwever over 6'5" LOL. The 6'7" height is accurate as his "peak" height which would be in his 20's. The toll of weightlifting, carryng around 300-330lbs all day every day, and of course the effects of landing on his but 400 times a year began loss of height early on and after two hip replacements, bone shaved off and removed numerous times from his knee and hip joints prior to having hips and knees replaced, so now he stands 2-3 inches shorter and you have a hard time believing it?? Seriously??? Definetly over 6'4" today, and definetly 6'7" or within a half inch of it "prime" based on what anyone can see without an agenda or on a height lowering quest. I for one hope he gets his one last match this year, it won't be a great match for the wrestling or speed, but for the hype and seeing him win and pose one last time in a WWE ring would be great!

@er4smiths i guess you know better than a Board Certified Doctor does! Show us your pictures if you seriously believe that he is below 6'4" if i were you i would consider getting my head checked. I am a little over 6'3" and i have met Steve Sting Borden so many times we were on a 1st name basis from him flying in and out of the airport i work at and he was very close to my height possibly 6'3" in shoes and he said Hogan was around 6'6" when he met him in the 80s which makes since and then body bi Vwas a year ago or so and i will say it again i guess that DR was a Hogan mark and lied about his stats. 6'2" please try again buddy. Thanks for the laugh.
er4smiths says on 18/Mar/15
@RYAN11 - I hate to burst your bubble but Hogan is 6'2" today - he may have been 6'3" peak but no more. I know this FOR FACT. My good friend in the Army met him and talked with him eye to eye for over 5 minutes. My friend is 5'10" and Hulk was no taller than him than I am. I have the pic to prove it. You can also easily look at the pictures of Hulk and Troy Aikman. Troy Aikman is 6'4" FACT - hulk is easily 2 inches shorter. People have this fantasy larger than life view of wrestlers and it's hard for them to accept legit height.
RYAN11 says on 16/Mar/15
The endless debate over Hogan's true "peak height" and even more so his current height amuses me. He clearly was well over six and a half feet tall barefoot in the early eighties, there is just way too much concrete evidence in movies, matches and pictures from everywhere that show he was way taller than 6'3" men back then. Saying he was never over 6'5" is just plain rediculous, and sounds really biased as if from people who are jealous or just like to stir up controversy where none really is. As for today, he was obviuosly down to a little over 6'4" before getting his compressed and bent spine fixed up somewhat, but when he stands up he is clearly right around 6'5" barefoot (this takes into account that he is always standing with his knees bent lowering him by an inch). My only point on this i guess is, why not stop all the height bashing (hope i am using the term correctly)and state facts instead of bad guesses from pictures with bad angles, distance or footwear and flooring? Rock is 6'3" minimum, and Hogan had him by well over an nch at WM30 with no advantage and bent knees, and this does not mean nor prove that the Rock is somehow only 6'2", there is way too much proof that he is around 6'4" to this day. Visalus took measurements and weight for Hogan, and he was 295lbs and 6'5" according to their medical records just over a year ago. Regardless, he was a super human sized man and still is one massive dude and that cannot be denied. 61 and still in incredible shape and with huge muscle mass, a great example to anyone.
Rey says on 15/Mar/15
The guy was always wearing boots-even as far back as Johnny Carson. No doubt he was a huge man.
jack says on 15/Mar/15
I Have no doubt Hogan stood 6-6 in his prime, obviously he is not that tall now after countless operations but look at early clips of his career, he had to be a tall guy,
Rey says on 14/Mar/15
Hulk was barely 6'5"@ his peak. Today he is about 6'2"and 3/4.

i guess we disagree and your pics do not prove anything other than you are not a good judge of height.
i have never met hogan so i cant say how tall he was or is but i know many people who have and tgey all say what i said 6'6" then and 6'4" now. The Dr's from Body Bi V said in his stats barefoot 6'4" a DR is not gonna lie.

No he wasn´t and it´s clear as Day in JT´s pics and the vid/ comparison I posted that Hogan is about 6" taller
than Mr. T and with Hogan in bigger footwear it´s still less than 7".





6´6"Hulk = 6ft Mr.T = 5´10.25" Stallone = 5´8.25" Glenn
RP says on 10/Mar/15
Jay Cutler is basically 5'9"....was originally billed @ 5'10" by the IFBB but now is listed @ 5'9". At the 2002 Arnold Classic @ age 29 Jay was measured barefoot @ 5'8.75" & weighed in stripped down the night before the show at 261 lbs!!! Period!!! Fact!!! One of my best friends Dutch Hulst help do the weigh-ins for the show & has done many weigh-ins & height checks for The IFBB & amateur national shows. And yes! Many shows classes are based on height line ups & competitors do actually get measured barefoot when they get weighed in basically nude "underwear only". Jay's official documents barefoot height is 5'8.75"!!! Yes, the body building promoters, media, magazines & other publications do tend to exaggerate the bodybuilders heights by 1" & sometimes even 2" from their "true barefoot" heights. However, the licensed competitors do have to have a true medically documented barefoot height on file for show/event purposes. Has he shrunk/settled some since 2002 ?? Possibly! Carrying around 250-300 lbs of muscle for 15 years is hard on the average skeletal system. However...the man was 5'8.75" barefoot in 2002. And 261 lbs ripped to the bone!!!

Hulk was 6'6" Prime as Rob has listed and 6'4" now not 6'3" check the Body bi V stats that were done on him a few years ago they were barefoot measured and weighed with a towel on. Fact so everyone can post pics preach camera angles and at the end of the day its all opinions those stats from body bi v are fact and Doctor regulated and admined. But i guess now i say that the trolls are gonna say the DR was a Hogan mark.

I'm not seeing it. I don't think there was any footwear advantage either way in the picture of Davey and Dynamite. Also, in the picture of Mr. T and Hogan, Hogan looks about 8" taller or maybe a little less. Hogan's head is tilted down so your line is much higher on his face than it should be. Hogan could gain around a .5" if he stood straighter in that picture. T is standing to his full height though. There is no way in the world there was less than 7" between them in that image.

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

Click Here

If you watch the vid, you see that Hogan is taking a deep intake of breath, therefore his chest and shoulders are a bit higher than usuall, his neck is pretty straight and his head is near perfect in a measuring position.

giving Hogan a 10.25" head shows a 6.25" difference and makes Mr. T´s head a realistic 9-9.25".

If Hogan was 6´6" it would make Mr.T a weak 6ft wich he clearly wasn´t.

If Mr.T was 5´10.5" Hogan was 6´4.75" there.

Imo Mr.T was between 5´10.5" and 5´11" peak wich makes Hogan 6´4.75" - 6´5.25" there.

Here is Mr.T with cowboybooted Hogan - again about 6" difference, 7 or even 8" is complete impossible

Bulldog face to face with 6´2.5"-6´3" The Rock, Rock has heeled footwear too and looking at Daveys leglength/ proportions
there´s no chance for footwear advantage more than 0.5"-0.75".

A bulky/heaveyoverweight 5´10.75" man can easy give a 5´9" impression if he´s not full stretched out, look at Daveys straight neck with Bret in the pic I posted.

But I now Frank is still right in his own mind and Rob has to change all Wrestler listings to fit with 5´9" Bulldog.

Hogan was more than 4" taller than Bret Hart in his prime. Even in 1999, he was at least 5" taller. Despite the couple of pictures where Smith and Hogan are together, I think Hogan would have been 6-7" taller than Smith. Even in the most recent one that was posted, Hogan looks 6" taller if you take his posture in to consideration. Smith was ~5'10.5"/5'11" in gear. Hogan was 6'5.5"/6'6" in his prime. Frank, you may be right about Bulldog wearing lifts. I've seen some early pics where he only looks a little taller than 5'8" Dynamite Kid.

1999 was nwo wcw days, Hogan had very tops 5 on flair and 4 on bret... and can you stop with these silly "hogan peak" talks? theres no evidence of height lost when it comes to hogan

Just Because, I seen a lot of Wrestlers up close Davie Boy must have been wearing Lifts in your pictures !!! I know what I saw im not always right nor am I an expert on judging height but 2 both men Davie Boy & The Anvil were Shorter than me Im still sticking to my guns Bulldog was about 5ft 9 !!

Im not saying what height bulldog was or wasnt he could have been 5ft9 im saying in every match they ever had and every pic ive been able to find davey edges out the anvil maybe this is because he wore lifts in ring gear and anvil didnt.
But there is a few pics of both men at funerals or fan events and davey still seems taller in street clothes.
My guess for davey would be 5ft10.5

Why don´t you provide evidence, show us Bulldogs supposed lifts, especially next to 6ft Bret,
funny thing is Bulldogs butt is still lower than Bret´s and Bulldogs legs still look shorter.

How can he be in lifts then? No chance, accept you´re wrong on this one.
Steve says on 4/Mar/15
Not sure if anyone has posted this, found this interview with Tiny Lister aka Zeus on youtube. He says he and hulk were the same height at 6'5. Sounds entirely possible now. Cant see Hogan under 6'5 peak ever. Still possible he may have been 6'5.5 at most.

Hogan wasn´t over 6´5.25" evening since Hulk Hogan was born, if he was ever 6´6" it was pre wrestling.
Bulldog was noway under 5´10.5" and closer to 5´11".

Here´s some stuff I´m pretty sure on regarding evening or low height:

Bundy was 190-191cm
Studd was 198-199cm
Hogan was 195-196cm
Andre was 210-211cm
Taker was 201-202cm
Haystacks 201-202cm
Sid was 200-201cm
Razor was 194-195cm
M. Morgan 202-203cm sometimes looking taller b/c inside lifts
Nathan J. 205-206cm
Bulldog 179-180cm
Bret H. 182-183cm
R. Piper 184-185cm

Lol your crying proves you´re wrong, your the one bitching around with excuses PERIOD
Frank is wrong too and stubborn as Danimal, there testimony is proven wrong year by year and they won´t accept.

Dynamite is either not 5´8" or a big liftwearer like the Mr.T. pic alone proves.

If you come with Mr.T isn´t minimum 5´10.5" then your near 6´6" Hogan was never ever above 6´4".

Not the same camera angle but it´s clear that Davey was near or flat 6ft in footwear as he comes out 1.25-1.5" taller than basicly barefooted 5´10.5" Mr.T .

Also a good comparison between Dynamites footwear and Davey´s, Daveys boots are normal as it gets, clearly not lift and the sole gives about 0.75-1"

Dynamite´s boots have a clear indication of inside lifts, look how high they are in the middle of the foot.

You are wrong. You are just making stuff up. Dynamite is not closer to the camera by any significant extent. They are standing right next to each other. Also, the top of Davey's head is pretty flat. Don't be fooled by all that hair. The top of his head is about an inch higher than the top of Dynamite's head. I guarantee it. It stands to reason that as Davey got more popular and became a singles wrestler, he started to wear boots that increased his height.

Frank, you may be right about Bulldog wearing lifts. I've seen some early pics where he only looks a little taller than 5'8" Dynamite Kid.

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

Chances are much better that Dynamite was in lifts, his boots look thicker here than Daveys usual boots.

5´10.5" Mr.T is basicly barefoot here, so IF Dynamite was only a flat 5´8" his boots give at least 2inches

Just Because, I seen a lot of Wrestlers up close Davie Boy must have been wearing Lifts in your pictures !!! I know what I saw im not always right nor am I an expert on judging height but 2 both men Davie Boy & The Anvil were Shorter than me Im still sticking to my guns Bulldog was about 5ft 9 !!

Bulky man like Davey can lose height easily from posture and because of their bulk no one notices their slouch.

@nev please give me your mailing address so i can send you glasses. I have read some interesting comments on here but your ranks in the top 5 of height trolling. Hogan is probably 6'4.5 in shoes now maybe even 6'5" (NO LIFTS) and 30 years ago was a good 6'7" or bigger in shoes i do not guess math was a subject you excelled in. But its your opinion and thats okay.

Baba's height for 202cm is not a number of his peak. To the video does not exist, what much is not as time is certainly around 1990. The TV program had been broadcast period of 1988-1996. Baba to say," My height was significantly shrinking because of age. The current my height is 202cm."

Please forgive my poor English.


Thx again for good information, Baba to me looked 6´8"-6´8.5" next to 1,96m Anton Geesink, so we can say Hogan was noway under 6´5" peak.
think losing 0.5-1" is significantly enough to fit with Baba´s statement as he didn´t look taller than 6´8.5"max.

Hope it wasn´t just an excuse from Baba for not looking his billed 6´10" *joking with a grain of salt :)

Losing near an inch is believable for Baba and shows also how much Andre lost.

Bulldog could have worn lifts in the ring ??? I seen him in Street clothes

Then please explain how he had 2" more footwear than Bret at Summerslam 1992 !
Looking at Daveys wrestlingboots there´s no indication for lifts, it doesn´t take a genius to see insidelifts bigger than 0.5" as the boots get more chunky with every quater inch.

Bret was between 5´11.5" and 6ft there and Davey 5´10.75"-5´11" both in 0.75"-1" wrestlingboots.

None of them had 2.5" Kane Munsters

Frank ok! thats fine... then lets also accept the outcome of a 5'9 Bulldog: 5'10 Bret, 6'2 peak Hogan!

____________

Hogan was more than 4" taller than Bret Hart in his prime. Even in 1999, he was at least 5" taller. Despite the couple of pictures where Smith and Hogan are together, I think Hogan would have been 6-7" taller than Smith. Even in the most recent one that was posted, Hogan looks 6" taller if you take his posture in to consideration. Smith was ~5'10.5"/5'11" in gear. Hogan was 6'5.5"/6'6" in his prime. Frank, you may be right about Bulldog wearing lifts. I've seen some early pics where he only looks a little taller than 5'8" Dynamite Kid.

Andre was an acromegalic giant with much more weight and a way longer spine than Hogan, I can´t see Hogan losing more than a full inch.

So now according to your Baba comparison, Hogan was 6'4.25" at his peak?! Yet, you have Andre at 7'0.5" in his prime even though he was very clearly only 5-6" than Hogan. Baba was easily a solid 6'8" and probably closer to 6'9". He was taller than 6'8" Tyler Mane in Japan because Mane had a footwear advantage and they were the same height. It is clear as day that in their primes Hogan was 6'5.5"-6'6", Baba was ~6'8.5", and Andre was ~6'11.5".

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

Now according to you Baba was lying about his own height...
You give everything for 6´6" Hogan.
My comparison is based on Baba´s own height claim, 6´4.5" Hogan is just the outcome, I still believe he was 6´5.25" max.

For Andre I said I can believe a peak 7´0.25" but for a morning measurement, evening around 6´11.25", right out of bed 7´0.75" .

__________

Where is this video of Baba claiming his height? By your logic, Hogan should have been around 6'6.75" right out of bed? He was a huge man himself. I doubt a young healthy Andre would not have lost 1.5" from morning till match time. If we're talking about match time heights, the lowest I'll go for a peak Hogan is 6'5.5" and the highest I'll go for Andre is 6'11.5". It could have be 6'5.75" to 6'11".

6´6" Is impossible for Hogans low peak. 6´5" or a tad over is the maximum I can see.

Baba at 202cm/ 6´7.5" looks also legit next to Tyler Mane who was about the same height.

Hart was 6' for sure as he was about the same height as Piper in 1992 and similar in height with Vince McMahon in the mid-90s. Also, Rob has met Hart within the last several years and agrees that he still looks around 6'. I don't know how you're seeing 2" between them. There is clearly only around 1" between them.

Started a wrestling staredown collection fyi :)
Thank you for those, what they show and prove is that Kevin Nash is 6'10" minium, also shows that at least in his wrestling boots Sid was equal in height to the 6'8 plus inch Taker, so all this rubbish about Hogan being under 6'6" back when they fueded is wrong. Hogan was only a fraction of an inch below Sid and that puts Hogan at 6'7" barefoot. He was also within an inch of Undetaker back then also if anyone cares to remember. It also shows and proves just how much height Hogan lost between then and his return in 2002! Bundy was 6'4" also, and Andre over 7 feet easily and so on. Good pictures!
James B says on 17/Feb/15
Probably around 6'5 1/2 in early 90s. I think he actually did look a full 6'6 in his prime though. HUGE.
jim1972 says on 16/Feb/15
Bulldog was not 5'9" research pics of him and Brett or him and Owen. He was at the minimum 5'10 more like 5'11" prime. His son is 6'4" there are pics out there of them together 5'9" is incorrect. And Hogan now is 6'4" nothing anyone can say or prove with pics unless they have him standing infront of a height chart will change my mind Body bi V stats said 6'4" and 297 pounds thats naked i believe a Dr before i believe a height troll with pics and his prime was 6'6" as listed here end of story.

I doubt he shrunk regarding his low height pre 90, if you talk about early morning/out of bed height it could be early heightloss imo due to reduced discs.

I can see him maybe 1cm shorter than peak facing Sid at WM8 age near 39 as he looked 194 to max 195cm facing 199cm Sid.

6´6" peak early morning, evening low 6´5.25"

British Bulldog: 5'10.75"
Hogan's knee has a mild bend to it. Ed "Beedcake" Leslie & Davey Boy Smith are standing perfectly straight! We can give Hogan an extra 0.25" to 0.5" if he was to stand completely erect like Leslie & Smith are.

To be fair I'd be shocked if Hogan was 6'6 as I certainly can't believe Sid was ever 6'8. Sid at 6'8 puts Nash at over 6'10... makes no sense.

____________

Sid was likely a solid 6'7" and he didn't have 2" on Hogan in 1992. Sid used to stand as straight as he possibly could every time. His posture usually made him look taller next to Hogan than he really was. To me this is the best pic of Hogan and Sid: Click Here

You take away Sid's hair there and he was only about an inch taller than Hogan; maybe a little more. Hogan was probably 6'5.5"-6'6" at his tallest. Nash probably was close to 6'10" and Sid was pretty near 6'8".

Hogan had about 6" on Lloyd legit and maybe more in that space costume he wore. Hogan is on video in 1991 claiming he was "only" 6'6" in an interview from Germany, I think. We can conclude he was never above that. He probably was about 6'6" in his prime and 6'3" now as it says at the top of this page.

anyway about a year after filming with lloyd he was easily 2 inches shorter than sid eudy, do you think sid was solid 6'8?
Davyyyyyyyy says on 7/Feb/15
Hogan was never 6'7. Not even right out of the bed after 30h of sleep. Sid had Hogan by 2 inches. Sid and taker where at the same height. +/- 0,5 inch advantage for one of them maybe but you could barely see that, Taker and Sid max 6'7.5 and since Sid looked 2 taller than Hogan, that makes Terry 6'5.5

So 6'5.5 is still huge and with that frame and muscles he had back in the 70s nd 80s makes him a giant.

Hogan has him by at least 7 inches, and that takes into account getting an extra inch from his runners at most which give him at least 8 inches over Chris, who is listed everywhere and here at 6 feet and the picture with Rob abd Jenny clearly proves this.

Rob, does this not put into question your low 6'6" peak height for Hogan? He was clearly at least 6'7" at that time.

Based on the nature of pro-wrestling I'd believe the announcers would probably be well informed about the wrestlers they are commenting on, if not fed with lines they would be expected to say, especially as this match was purely to serve as a showcase for the debut of Hulk Hogan (which is obvious when you watch the match). So when they comment of him being "6'5, 6'6" I'd assume that was the height info on Hogan they were provided with more so than them just really guessing.

miko on Hulk Hogan
He was 6'5 or a hair over his prime and is now around 6'3. Add in the cowboy boots he wore in the 80's and there you have him looking 3 inches shorter. He never looked a flat 6'6.

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

Agree with you.
Solid 6´5"peak, no 6´6"

I think 6´5.25", 6´5.5"max and I think he would have the edge on Tiny Lister and Jake Roberts peak ~ 0.25"

i saw him the other night on RAW. he looks so much shorten than he used to be. maybe its his age, or whatever but back in the 80's he looked enourmous
Duhon says on 31/Jan/15
Hmm I'm thinking this might have been posted here at some point but this is Hogan's WWF debut match in 1979, and the announcer makes an interesting comment about Hogan's height. "He must be about 6'5", 6'6"" Click Here
RP says on 30/Jan/15
Peak Stallone: 5'9.5", current Stallone: 5'8.75"
Peak Mr.T: 5'11", current Mr.T: 5'9.75"
And yes, Stallone always wears big footwear. Not for sure if the rumors of lifts are true? But, what is fact is that he always has a big thick heel on his boots or shoes. You will very rarely ever see Stallone out in public without at least an 1.75" heel on his footwear.
RYAN11 says on 29/Jan/15
Here is an interesting picture that is fairly recent. Hogan is over half a foot taller than MrT and Stallone who apparently always wears lifts in his shoes. Would this not show Hogan at 6'5" or better?

The Big Show and Ed Jones were also in a photo together but unfortunately the photo is not useful for height comparison.

That photo does make me wonder if there is a photo of the Big Show standing directly beside of Ed Jones.
184.3cm says on 26/Jan/15
If Ed Jones is 6'8 then Hogan isnt under 6'3 today. Could even be a solid 191cm 6'3.25. 2-2.5 inches lost since his peak.
JT says on 25/Jan/15
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

dicksock says on 17/Jan/15
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

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'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.

@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.

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" !!!

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.

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.
