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

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

____________

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

@JT Love is probably wearing those magical height increasing shoes.

6'3" now seems very likely. Steve Austin has often cited himself to be 6'1" and even looks it.
miko says on 22/Nov/14
6'3/6'3.5 range for Hulk depending on how he stands.

Those who claim 6'2 obviously are a sandwich short of a picnic.

Randy Savage was around 6'0". Hogan about 5 inches taller. Click Here

Yeah always had Savage as a weak 6ft peak, Click Here
struggled to look much more than an inch over 5´10.5" Bulldog and Bret seemed to edge him slightly in 1993.

Cowboyboot Hogan in 1991 looked max 6´6" next to 5´7.25" Carsten Schäfer, so between 6´4.5" and 6´5" legit there.

With 6'10" Kevin Love. Click Here height aside, Hogan's hands are bigger than this guy's!

Love actually measured as 6'7.75" barefoot in the draft. He's one of the bigger height cheats in the NBA.

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

_____________

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

Ed Jones was 6'8" barefoot in his prime.

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

Check out the match for yourselves, it's on the WWE network which is free all month so no excuses.

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

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

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

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

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

Boy, are there ever some peole on here hell bent on making Hogan out to be much shorter than we all know he was and still is! This board sounds more like a penis envy forum but on height LOL. I totally beleive that guys like Troid who is 6'3.5" matched him standing next to him, but that is with Hogan's legs and knees bent like i showed in my pictures of him from Comic Con in September!! When he stretches out and stands up, which is rare he is easily 6'5", and definelty way over 6'4". He also is a massive man still, and easily weighs around 300lbs - he said last week in an interview that he was up to 305lbs but now is 290lbs because he is trying to get ring ready for one last match at WM31. What is so hard to believe guys??? Hogan was advertised as 6'8" to 6'9" by the WWF throughout the 80's and then at 6'7" in the 90's by WCW. He was 6'7" before any height loss, and was always well over 300lbs before leaning down to 275lbs for a while in the mid 90's. I have seen a lot of big men and he is way larger than any man in the 250-275lb range so there is no way he is that light.
Junior31 says on 13/Nov/14
Did anyone ever notice the early 1980s hogan compared to the wcw hogan? Guy looks 3 inches and 50 lbs lighter. Complete body transformation The late 70s early 80s hulk looked every bit of 6'6 300 and change. Massive. The wcw nwo hogan seemed not only shorter by 2 inches but completely more athletic and slender. The height is clear the dude got older but the weight and build?

@RP: Fella, please take out a measuring tape and see what 2.5 inches actually looks like.
RP says on 12/Nov/14
Hogan looks huge in his late 80's Japan dream match vs Hansen! Every bit of 300-305 lbs right there!!! And I'm still saying 6'5.5" barefoot! With a possible very peak of 6'5.75" ?
RP says on 11/Nov/14
Height 182...first, that's way more than 2.5"!!! It's an easy 3" to 3.5"! Fella, that looks like spot on 3.5" taller than me in almost every pic. Everyone Cena & Hogan are on RAW together it looks like exactly 3.5" and they both have on similar sneakers as well when they are on RAW together. Plus...John Cena is not a flat 6'0"...he's about 6'0.5" barefoot.

Hansen and Hogan has formed a frequent tag team in Japan, 10cm or 4 inches with a maximum difference of two person of stature in my impression.
CrackMcEnzie says on 10/Nov/14
It looks like more than a 2.5 inch difference between Cena and Hogan in those pictures, I can't say exactly how much but it looks more.
I'm about 2.5 inches taller than my wife and when we stand in the mirror together, our height difference doesn't look as much as what Cena and Hogan's is.
Either Cena is shorter than what we think or Hogan is taller. One of the two.
Troid says on 10/Nov/14
I met him at New York Comic Con last month, I'd say he's the same height as me which is 6'3.5"

Yeah brothA, after studying it closer...I see what you're saying. Peak young Hogan was about 5" taller than Hansen...especially after I noticed that Hansen's wrestling boots were about 0.25" to 0.375" thicker than Hogan's. And then seeing a night club pic of Hogan & Hansen both had on equal footwear (similar cowboy boots) & Hogan had what looks like 5 " to. 5.5" on him.

Are you ignoring the fact that Hogan could have easily stood taller and that Hansen was in front of him? If all things were equal, Hogan would have had about 5" on him according to that picture.

Dicksock, there's no point in getting upset. You remind me of myself a bit. I know it's frustrating being someone who is completely objective and unbiased and doesn't try and raise or lower people based on their own personal likes/dislikes. My advice, just try and post your own opinion and kind of ignore other's, just because if you focus too much on it, it's get to you. I know in the past it did for me (and even still does today).

His 186 CM billing (6'1.25") is most likely Stan Hansen's true barefoot height. The early to mid 70's billings in Japanese pro wrestling were there true heights & weights. Due to the fact that they had the same governing body as the Sumo wrestling athletic commission. However, In the 70 'a Japanese pro wrestling was no longer governed by the athletic commission. And guys true heights & weights also stated being exaggerated to match all the cross over affiliation that was becoming very big in the late 70's & early 80's with the WWF, NWA & AWA. So, a 6'1.25" Stan Hanson makes Hulk Hogan 6'5"...a perfect posture Hogan in that pic would reach 6'5.5" tho. I do agree with what other guys are saying in that Hogan & slightly leaning in the pic & Stan's angle gives him an extant 0.5" appearance in the pic. Check out the night club pic with Hogan, Andre & Hansen. Hogan is dressed up & appears to be onstage with Hansen singing karaoke?? Hogan has Hansen by 5 to 5.5" in that pic ! No joke! Equal footwear (both in cowboy boots)??? Young Hogan there looks every bit of 6' 6"!
CrackMcEnzie says on 1/Nov/14
I remember a video game that stated Stan Hanson's height to be 6'7, so that must have been close to his billed height in somewhere.

I think with guys like Hogan and Stan Hanson, because of their large body sizes, they were able to Bill them as much taller than what they were.
Back in the 70's there was an episode of something wwwf or maybe it was already wed where "The fabulous" Hulk Hogan was billed at 6'9.
I think if Hogan was only scraping 6'5 they wouldn't have taken it that far so I still believe he was a legit 6'6 at his peak and 6'7 on his mother's wall.

Now the Hogan/Hansen picture makes more sense. Hogan was standing behind Hansen with bad posture and still looked 4" taller. He would have been around 5" taller if he been lined up and standing to his full height. I cannot believe Hansen was under 6'1", but he does look like it next to Brody. Is it not possible Brody was 6'5"? I'm sure I've heard many people describe him as 6'5". Let's say Hansen was 6'0.5". Hogan still looked 6'5.5" next to him and was clearly taller next to him than the solid 6'4" Brody.

Hogan and JYD from 1986. Click Here That same year, I stood right next to JYD backstage at the LA Sports Arena. He was around 6’3” in his cowboy boots, or around 6'1" barefoot.

In a shoot interview Hansen claimed Brody was 6'4" and also the biography 'Brody', which was written by Larry Matysik and Brody's widow Barbara Goodish described him as 6'4".

A 6'4" Brody puts Hansen at 6'1" at best. 6'3" for Hansen is out of the question.

Hogan looked about 4" taller than Hansen in that pic. Hogan could be standing straighter and Hansen was standing in front of Hogan. Even with those two factors, Hogan looked 4" taller. Hansen does have some 6'2" listings though. I always thought he was 6'2". Hogan looked at least 6'6" next to him even if he was only 6'2".

Look at Hogan next to Shaq in the 1990s. And look at Lebron next to Shaq in the last few years. The height difference is basically the same for both. Hogan was obviously over 6'6 even in the 1990s
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
I know people never believe celebrity heights, but I think it's quite likely Hogan was 6'7 in the 1970s, 6'6 in the 1980s and 1990s. 6'3 in the 2000s, and back to about 6'5 now.
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
And remember, Hogan was even bigger in the 1970s. I saw a video of him with Richard Belzar, who is 6'1. Hogan makes him look tiny. Hogan had at least 6 inches on him
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
With spine surgery, they usually remove sections of your back to ease pressure. But it sometimes makes it worse, so corrective surgery is reinserting material to replace the removed section of spine. So it's quite a legitimate story
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
As for Hogan, anyone who has had major back surgery will tell you, you do lose height every time you have it. And he's had lots! It's quite probable he lost significant height. And it's also likely he regained from from corrective surgery.
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
Hogan was obviously huge in his younger days. Look at him with Andre the Giant - Andre was only 3 inches taller! Hogan had the same height difference with Andre, that Big John Studd had with him. And Studd was a legit 6'7.

Hogan at his peak was at least 6'6. I think he was probably taller

Good pic, Miko... Ok, Cindi Lauper was 5'3" & has on 2" footwear in this pic w/Hogan. Hogan is also wearing 2" Cowboy Boot heels. So, experts?? What's the height difference between Hulk & Cindi??? I'm seeing 14"-15" inches?? I'm gonna settle on 14"

_________________

Nobody can tell anything specific from that pic. The Davidson pic is much better. A prime Hogan in cowboy boots looked 2" shorter than 6'8" Ben Davidson in cowboy boots. But, I agree that Hogan was between 6'5" and 6'6".
RP says on 16/Oct/14
Hogan being 14.5" taller than Lauper once again puts Hogan @ 6'5.5"

I agree Animal, but for some reason Hogan appears to now be 0.5" to. 0.75" taller than he was a a couple of years ago? And I can't just buy that at age 60 he suddenly decided to start wearing lifts in his sneakers. Hogan claims his last back surgery in the fall of 2012 worked great & restored some of his lost height. And over the past 18 months there has been tons of proof that support his claims. He suddenly went from being 0.5 " taller than the Rock to Looking about 1.5" taller than the Rock at this last April 's Wrestlemania. He went from looking 1 " taller than Sting to looking 2"+ taller than Sting almost over night just before he left TNA Wrestling. The awards show about 5 years ago he looked 2" taller than John Cena...he now looks 3.5" taller than Cena. But seriously ...at the 2002 Wrestlemania Hogan was only a 0.5" taller than the Rock. At this year's April 2014 Wrestlemania Hogan had the Rock by at least 1.5" & most angles looked like a solid 2".

RP on Hulk Hogan
Peak Hogan: 6'5.5"...current Hogan: 6'3.75" or 6'3.5"!!! Period!!!!

Did you not see the pics of 6'4" Troy Aikman with 1-2" on Hogan? He's lucky if he can hit 6'3" today. He was also barely taller than the Rock in their facedown in 2002 and we know the Rock was never over 6'2.5".
miko says on 15/Oct/14
I don't think Hogan ever wore lifts in the ring but he certainly did wear cowboy boots quite often outside the ring in the 80's and early 90's that had a good heel on them.

He would probably have been standing around 6'7 in these...

It's not ridiculous. Kane wrestled with lifts and did far more than Hogan ever did. Plus, Jessie Ventura, who was Hogan's friend until the 90s, said Hogan wore lifts. A well-researched bio of the WWF said Vince gave Hogan lifts. Hogan could have easily worked his style with 1" boosts in his boots.

No, Hogan did not wear lifts while he wrestled, you can tell by looking at his boots. look at Sid Justice's boots in the picture posted by miko, thats what boots with lifts look like.
The same with Kane's boots and Mark Henry's boots. When a wrestler looks like they have Frankenstein feet like the 3 wrestlers I've listed above, thats what lifts look like.

Hogan wore lifts in the movies, not in the ring. Anything Jessie Ventura said is questionable anyway since its well known he doesn't like Hogan. Vince McMahon also doesn't give away information like that so it couldn't be anything more than hearsay.
You only have to look at Hogan at the same height as Big John Studd early in his career to see he was at least 6'6 in his prime.
Check out the Puerto Rican downpour against stud. They're the same height.
Giantism says on 14/Oct/14
SR1212 is right on the money and the first person in a while interested n the truth about Hogan's height now and before height loss. My pictures proved beyond any doubt that he is way over 6'4" still, he gives the impression of being less because as my pics again proved he bends his knees a lot dropping himself by 2 inches easily - that is where you get all these bogus 6'3" claims from. I watched when he walked off the stage, he shot up in height considerably when he started moving and hence would straighten his legs out. There also was a guy on here who said he is 6'4" but was taller than Hogan by 2 inches - bull crap, i saw a couple of 6'4" plus guys take pics with him and one had about a half inch on Terry when he stood with his legs bent like my photo showed. Looking forward to seeing your photos SR1212.

There is no way possible he is under 6'4.5 i have already told everyone on here how tall i am which if push comes to shove i will post my military i.d. as well as the pics i took with him to show everyone that all the lowballing heights are wrong. I am 6'4.75 he was taller than me and we were both in flip flops. So theres only 2 ways this could be either im lying which im not!! Or he is what i said which is 100% fact. Pics to follow.

James B, I've never actually met Hogan so all we can do is guesstimate from their pics together and mine with Ferrigno. But they do look very similar in height.

Check out his match with Undertaker. He was 6'5 6'6. Dudes pretty tall
miko says on 12/Oct/14
Rob, given that you've chopped half an inch off Sid Eudy to 6'6.5, do you think giving Hulk a 6'5.5 listing for his peak would be more realistic? After all Sid pretty much always seemed to have at least an inch on Hulk, if not more. I do think Hulk did fall a bit short of a full 6'6.

Agree with James B - Hogan today is 6'2.5 (peak morning height). Think at times he does wear small lifts in his trainers so at times can still give the impression of 6'4.
[Editor Rob: stranger things have happened.

It was claimed in one newspaper that Rock Hudson got billed as 6ft 4 and I quote, "it was later revealed the measurement was taken while he wore 2 inch lifts."

No wonder Hogan is walking funny, the guy could have been on a shopping trip with Sly at the new LiftsRUs store!]

I can only tell you what i seen judging from my personal height which is physically recorded by the V.A. and the United States Marine Corp. I am 6'4.75" and in flip flops maybe close to 6'5" or very close when i met him he was in dollar tree cheap flip flops and was my height but when he stood up straight he was taller by at the least 3/4" but he had very bad posture and leans so 6'4-6'4.5 walking around is dead on maybe even 6'3.5 if he is stiff.

__________

I tend not to believe people when it comes to things like this. I had a friend who was 6' claim to have met Scott Steiner and said he thought he was 6'2". I have other examples of bogus estimates as well. Hogan has stated publicly that he is currently 6'4"/6'4.5" and absolutely never looks taller than that and most of the times looks less. Even his medical stats recorded during his fat loss program listed him as 6'4". Your 6'5.5" minimum claim has little to no value to me. Hell, even Hogan would disagree with you.

Leon White was 6'3" legit. So with that being said in the pics below that would put hogan around 6'5.5 to 6'6" but there is no consideration for added footwear. White wore chunky boots so at minimum adding 1" more like 1.5 to 2" so just to keep it low say it added him up ro 6'4.5 and hogan had his typical .5 yellow flat boots which if there were lifts inside his front arch would sit highter as well as his ankle so if he had 2.5" on him that puts hogan hovering around 6'7" with semi bad posture. Stand him up perfectly straight just shy of 6'8" with boots and realisticly 6'6.5" just a thought so opinions please.

Hogan didn't wear lifts in his wrestling boots, thats ridiculous, it would throw him off balance. He did wrestle a match or two with his cowboy boots but those weren't actually that high.

I talked to him for more than 15 minutes he took pics with my kids and was a very nice guy. I am 6'4.75 as per my physical a month or so ago he with bad posture was roughly my height or a little less prob 6'3.5 to 6'4" but he stood up straight and was every bit of 3/4 of a inch taller than me.

But even so Hogan had already lost height by 1995 when he wrestled Vader. he was in his 40's, everyone has lost a couple of centimeters by then.
hogan had already had surgery too, before he wrestled the warrior. You don't have Hogan at his peak Height since the 1980's. In the picture of Hogan with Vader, he's about 6'4 1/2 and Vader is 6'3. Hogans peak height was 6'6. and he rounds it up to 6'7 because he may have been 6'6 1/2 at full stretch.
RP says on 8/Oct/14
Barefoot Leon White was 6'2.75"...he did wear some very thick soled boots tho. I'm estimating Vader was 6'4.5" in his wrestling boots. But, Leon was 6'2.75" barefoot coming out of college & going into the NFL draft.

Vader was about 6'3" and Hogan looked nearly 2" taller. In case you can't tell, Hogan wasn't standing as tall as he could. He would have been around 2.5" taller if he stood to his full height. So around 6'5.5".

I talked to Hogan for a few minutes after the ppv in WCW where Paul Wight ran over Hulk's motorcycle (1996? I forget) He was not in his wrestling gear l, just street clothes... though I cannot remember what type of shoes he had on. I have had 7 disctomies and fusions combined between 1987 and now and can attest to losing height to that and the arthritis and other maladies that go along with it (6' 3" on the dot in 87, 6' 1-3/4" now). At the time I was wearing logging boots from work (I was 6' 2-1/2" plus the boots then). He was approximately 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" taller than me, but definitely shorter than my friend who was with me (6' 6" plus standard work boots). I will try to find the old Polaroid.

I think if you were to encounter Hogan backstage in the 1980's right before a match, he'd be clearing 6ft8. Usually the billed heights are attainable in boots.

No chance Hulk is under 6'3 today.
er4smiths says on 1/Oct/14
I agree Hulk is around 6'2"-6'3" right now - but he was never 6'6" peak. Nobody loses over 3 inches in height. Andre was 6'9" and was always about 4-5 inches taller.

Some people do not lie. I do not lie i really do not give a flying s**t if anyone believes me i met the man i stood 2' infront of him as did my wife and little kids i am as tall as i say i am why the hell would i want to lie about it? No one is paying me to comment on here and i am not a so called mark either i just simply told about my encounter with hulk hogan and how tall i think he is. The man is not shorter than me and for the 6th time i am 6'4.75" flat medically measured as of last month when i got my physical at the VA hospital in Gainesville Fl. I am a Veteran and get treated for PTSD. Bottom line is he was taller than me without big sole shoes he is at the least 6'5" standing perfectly straight but again if i had to give my best estimate he is 6'51/4 to 1/2 because he edged me out by seems like 3/4 of a inch.

I do not know his business pratices and how he acts during work but the man rode up on a red bike i seen him and double taked because i really didnt believe what i was seeing i mean come on in what world does Hulk Hogan roll up on the beach strip on a freeking bike but it was him so i waved at him and asked for a pic and a autograph and he was cool as ****. He talked to me for every bit of 15 minutes just like he knew me and as i said i asked him about the height thing and he laughed and theres always gonna be haters brother then went on to show me the pics of after his 6 back surgery and he asked me how tall i was i told him and like i said he was taller than me by 3/4" or better with flat ass dollar tree flip flops on. I am exactly 6'4.75" on the freeking dot no rounding thats my flat barefoot height i do not lie and with my flip flops on i may have been a quarter of a inch gain same with him and he was taller 6'5" bare minimum. People can keep talking and showing pics comparing him to other people go stand next to the guy and you will have your answer which is exactly the height i say just ask him to stand straight up

He just happened to have pictures of his back surgery at the beach? Sounds like a made up story to me man.
I've seen him too but it was at an actual wrestling event in Australia. I was standing on the isle and he walked past waving his arms and stuff, so I couldn't accurately guess his height as I said. Other people like "the Pimpfather", Heidenreich and umaga walked past me too and I'd say Hogan was about the same height as those guys.
CrackMcenzie says on 29/Sep/14
A search for Hogan's height lists him as 2.01 m wtf.He's not that tall, I've seen him. Couldn't honestly make an accurate guess as to how tall he is from then though because it was about 5 or 6 years ago. Not from the pictures on this site either but he's not 6'7 anymore.

How tall is the Hoff? this site said 6'4 but sais hogan is 6'3 even though their picture together shows Hogan is probably taller if he stood up properly.
How accurate is this website? Do you get the heights from medical records or anything?
SR1212 says on 29/Sep/14
I do not have a large head and i am lean not of massive stature like hogan is. I will tell you another guy who is my height is Barry Windham i met him in mascot florida at there armory he was signing autographs at a show I took my 7 year old son to watch i have pics with him he is damn near same size as me maybe 6'4 to 6'41/2" and i am pretty sure he was shorter than hulk but i would bet he weighs around 320 pounds hes not in very good shape he did say at one time he was lean like me and could run 3 miles at a jog and not get winded. But i bet he has lost height over the years i would guess at his peak he was 6'5.5 all day so if he was than hogan was 6'7" all day in the early 80s.

His head is about the same as Ferrigno's, and Ferrigno's is about the same as mine. So I wouldn't think Hogan's head is huge.
SR1212 says on 28/Sep/14
Thats exactly what i said about his posture he favors his right side, he walks with bent knees and hunches over but when he stands completly straight he is tallee than me by a little bit and im 6'4.75 barefoot as of last month when i got my physical at the VA Hospital. When i saw him he had on flip flops as did i so he couldnt hide lifts or thick soles in them. They were grey dollar store flops not a name brand. Hes got a huge head to unless he had a rag hid under his bandana which i highlt doubt he is 6'5 and some change.
Alex 6'0 says on 28/Sep/14
6'6 peak isn't impossible! I think prob 6'5.5 range may be spot on for his peak. Today 6'3 I believe but he looks very similar to what he did in 2002 against Rock. Was he more 6'4 in 2002 though?
miko says on 28/Sep/14
I think standing as straight as he could he would clear 6'3 even today.

Look at him with the Hoff, pretty much the same height and Hulk is leaning in, and Hoff is still around 6'4.
BorkLaser says on 27/Sep/14
Right now it's hard to speculate on his height because of his posture and shoes, but having seen him recently I can safely assume he's at least 6'3". Standing fully straight a 6'4" isn't unlikely either.

He showed me a picture on his phone of post recovery of his 6th back surgery and you can clearly see his skin from mid back down to his tail bone sagging on both sides of his spine meaning straighten it up he gains 2 to 3 inches. The man is 6'5" now without a doubt and i believe when he was younger was 6'7".

So low height ballers you all are wrong he is at lowest 6'5" when he stands straight up but he favors his right side and slouches a bit so he could easily be judged at 6'3" but to clear it up hes not 6'2" or 6'3". So all the short height haters try again.

Thank you, this is what i and a few others have been saying and proving with recent pictures for some time now. Hogan is 61, my Grandfather who was 6'4" in his army days stood only 6'1" at 70 and he never had the bulk or the injuries and surgeries that Hogan has had. He was 6'7", and now after getting some height restored is 6'5" or dam close to it when he stands up straight. In two pictures i had with him there was a 1-2 inch difference, and that was because in the first one where he fexed his bicep he actually stood up almost straight and looked every bit 6'4-5". RoelC, not sure if you are wearing someone elses glasses but Hogan was standing with his knees bent clearly in that pic with Hoff, and David was as straight as an arrow.

Shave Hasselhoffs head and Hogan is taller. That curly hair gives him at least an extra inch. Hogan is 6'4".
Giantism says on 24/Sep/14
er4smiths, I said you looked 6'3" or not much less, which at close to 6'2" you are just that. You also have a footwear advantage as you pointed out which makes you appear at least 1 inch taller next to the 5'9" person than you normally would. Simply put, your shoe advantage makes you look like a near 6'3" guy with them, so you have no point about Hogan and your picture does not lower his height at all. Hogan also as i showed with my pictures stands with his knees bent so much that he drops his height by 2" or close to it, so if he looks 6'3" with me he is really 6'4.5" at least if he strands up straight.

Hulk with David Hasselhoff

Not the best of pics, but this is the first full-body shot I've seen where they're standing side by side. Neither man's posture is great, but Hogan seems te be leaning slightly forward. Picture is also tilted in Hogan's favour. Not sure about the footwear.
Google Earth says on 23/Sep/14
Somebody earlier said Hogan was as tall as Sid Vicious?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGZRhxoAk6Y

Clearly Sid is 2 inches taller so if Sid is a legit 6'6 then Hogan would be 6'4 peak.
Clay says on 23/Sep/14
He is not absolutely right about a 6'3-6'4 peak Hogan, lol.

Hulk is barely shorter than 6'4 Hasselhoff and his posture is much worse. If Hulk straightens up there he'd be the same height as David.

Not a chance that Hulk is under 6'3 these days.

I am 6'1.75" barefoot. I am wearing Nike AirMax shoes. Guy in the middle is 5'9" wearing vans. My wife on the right is 5'9.5" barefoot and is wearing flat sandels. I was leaning in on purpose because they asked me to when they took the pic because there was such a height difference. My only point with this picture was to emphasize that Hulk Hogan doesn't seem much taller than me with a 5'9" person.

It would seem as though you're assuming Hogan has a big footwear advantage with everyone like you did with your wife and friend. My estimate was made assuming you had similar footwear.
Frank1744 says on 22/Sep/14
@er4smiths; youre absolutly right! By the way Gino Brito said on tv lately that Andre the Giant was only 6'11" inhis prime and 6'9" at the end..... against Hogan!

I was leaning in on purpose because they asked me to when they took the pic because there was such a height difference. My only point with this picture was to emphasize that Hulk Hogan doesn't seem much taller than me with a 5'9" person. I actually don't "round up" or "embelish" my height as SO many people do. I run into this ALL the time. I could easily say I'm 6'2 or 6'2.5" or even over 6'3" when wearing certain footwear but I don't. I met a big tall guy at the dump yesterday that looked about 6'5"and he said he was 6'7" So with guys already rounding up and then WWE adding 3-5 more inches in some cases - it's very concievable that Hulk was 6'3-6'4" "peak" and now is 6'1.5"-6'2.5" tall. I mean Brooke is only 5'8"-5'9" and with heels looks nearly the same height. All this to say - Andre The Giant was 6'9" peak. He wore specially made boots to look much taller. Even with those boots he was 3 inches shorter than Wilt Chamberlain. There is a pic with Kane and Vince Vaughn (6'5") and they are the same height - you KNOW Kane was wearing shoes that help his height...my point is - WWE is awesome at creating a fantasy with size. Theyve been doing it for 40 years. My neices Uncle is a well known Wrestler on the Independant Circuit and is my height but they bill him as 6'5"

miko says on 21/Sep/14
Hogan looked a rock solid 6'4.5/6'4.75 guy in WCW, just short of 6'5 which he looked in the 80's.

Any real noticeable height loss seemed to start coming after 2000 and I think a lot of it that time was posture related.

It's hard to tell from that picture because you are closer to the camera. But, your posture is garbage. If I had to guess, I'd say you are around 6" taller. So I guess 6'3". You could possibly be as low as 6'2" though. Do you know their heights for a fact? Have you measured them or is it just a guess?
jimbo says on 19/Sep/14
What is so difficult about believing that Hulk has shrunk. How many of you out there have had neck and back surgeries or fusions. His age is the same as mine. Even though i hydrate like crazy i am steadily shrinking. As we age we lose our ability to stay hydrated. Our discs are 80% water when we are younger.Over the age of sixty between 50-60%. I was 6'4" in college. I am a world ranked javelin thrower and I am 12% body fat. I have taken good care of my body. I now stand 6'2". Why should it matter. I met Hogan at an event about 25 years ago. He was at least 2 inches taller than me. He will forever be Hulk no matter how much he shrinks as he ages. Give it a rest.
Giantism says on 19/Sep/14
Er4smiths I would put you around 6'3", not much less than that. I won't put up the picture yet but my son also posed with Hogan that day and he is 5 feet even. He barely came up to the top of the letter stating on Hogans shirt. There was another 16-18 inches easily to the top of Hogans head. 6'4" is the minimum for him, more closer to 6'5" if anything. When Hogan was taller than the Rock this year the clan on here immediately went on a mission to convince everyone that Dwayne is only 6'2" which is ridiculous. His photo with Conan proved beyond any doubt that he is still 6'4", so Hogan has to be over 6'4" by a good amount.

Hulk ' upper body looks big & thick like a 285 lbs man....however, his lower body is pitiful & frail now. His legs look like the belong on a 200 lbs man. His lower body breaks my heart...cause you can tell he's in constant pain from the lower back down to his ankles.
Giantism says on 18/Sep/14
RP, I am 205 lbs. Hogan has at least 90-100 lbs on me easily. If you see him like I did you would quickly realize he us right around 300 lbs. Also, your right he appears 6'3" or a bit taller while he is leaning with his knees bent so much which proves he is almost 6'5" easily. Rob, can we expect an upgrade soon? He also was a lot taller in the eighties when I saw him up close.
JT says on 17/Sep/14
Click Here Rick Fox was NBA-listed at 6'7" but is no taller than 6'6". Standing straight he'd probably have Hogan by around 3 inches.

Hogan looks around 6"-7" taller than you. If you're 5'9", that would make him 6'3"-6'4".
RP says on 16/Sep/14
Gigantism , could you also confirm Jimmy Hart 's height? I see that he was also there? You being 5'9" should be able to pin point Jimmy's exact height. I've said that Jimmy 's peak height was 5'9.5" & his current height is 5'9"?? Tho many on this page try to claim he's only 5'8"...which IMO is hogwash!
RP says on 16/Sep/14
Gigantism, great photos. Maybe the best ever of Hulk Hogan. Because the finally show him from all angles and show how I've been saying for years that he never stands completely straight anymore longer than maybe 10 seconds at a time. His Knees are constantly bent costing him at least at least 1"-1.5"!! And he is also always slouching in leaning on the hip that got replaced. Which is costing him another. 0.5" easy. So, Hulk's posture these days does cost him 2" easy. That's why you hear about all of these stupid 6'2" claims. So, we really could label Hulk as standing height 6'3" & stretched out erect height as 6'4.5" plus??? However, if he can only stand & present that height once or twice a day & 10 seconds at a time...and the other 99.5% of the time during the day he's standing 6'3" to 6'3.5". ??? Does this still classify him as a 6'3" to 6'3.5" y'all man? And he's nowhere near 300 lbs! 263 to 268 is what I see in those pics.
Giantism says on 16/Sep/14
So to clarify, he was 6'3" or more barefoot as we say with his legs bent, that means he is easily 6'4.5 or more if he stands tall. As for his weight, 260lbs is way too low, he said he weighs 300+ right now and believe me he is massive and looks every bit 300 plus.
Bill C says on 15/Sep/14
No doubt Hogan is 6'4". He just posted this on Twitter today. Hogan and David Hasselhoff. They are the exact same height. Hogan being 6'2" is just laughable. Click Here
RP says on 15/Sep/14
Gigantism...could Hulk be 6'3.5" ??? I've been told be a very reliable source who works in the business that Terry is 6'3.5" barefoot now. And about 260-265 lbs?? Is this what you saw? Also...What is your barefoot height? Before you post the pics, BrothA! ;-)
Giantism says on 15/Sep/14
Here are 4 pictures of Hogan from the comic con. Firstly, take note of how bent his knees are in the two pictures of his legs,he stood this way the entire time people posed with him regardless of how tall they were. As for myself, i stand 5'9" and his runners gave him no advantage over my addidas runners. His head also is huge as you can see, my head is a large size for helmets or hats so his has to be over 10" tall. Straighten his legs out and i will only come up to his mouth at best, he is 6'3" in this picture with his legs bent lowering him by 2 inches.

I also was at the comic con in Montreal, you are blatant liars to say he is 6'2". I will post pictures soon but he was at least 6'4", he stood with horrible posture and his knees were bent a lot the entire to time he stood to take pictures. He also still has 21 inch arms at least, and is massive in his upper body. 30 lbs easily, he dwarfed men of the same height range who would weight 230-230lbs.
Frank1744 says on 14/Sep/14
@kyuss,absolutly right on it,just met him at the Montreal-commiccon and im a legit 6'4" and he stood right in front me and i say 6'2" maybe 1/4"....
Carl B. says on 13/Sep/14
I just met Hulk Hogan at ComicCon today here in Montreal and I have to admit that I was a bit shocked about his height. I'm exactly 186cm (6'1.25") and Hogan was 2 inches (5cm) taller than me so 191cm (6'3") is SPOT ON. Believe it or not it is the absolute truth!!!
Bill C says on 13/Sep/14
Hogan with GSP. Hogan looks a strong 6'4" next to 5'10"-5'11" GSP. GSP recently took a pic with Arnold and was really close to the same height as him. I'm guessing he's very close to 5'11". I met GSP a couple years ago and he seemed close to 6'0". Click Here

There is one very glaruing omission in this new picture of Hogan and ferrigno. We cannot see either mans footwear!! Also, there are a couple of other pictures from different angles and level that suddenly make Hogan look 2 inches taller. Hogan has shown in every appearance with celebrities of known height this last year that he is well over 6'4", I would say that Lou must be getting a 1" boost over Hogan with whatever shoes he is wearing there. I will be meeting the man himself at comic con this week and will get a picture with him to prove he is 6'5" or barely under!
----------------------------------------------------

Hogan has a penchant for wearing boots with any outfit regardless of how ridiculous it looks. Although lately I would guess that he doesn't wear them as much because he would rather be comfortable than taller. Lou on the other hand pretty much exclusively wears New Balance brand running ste shoes. So if I had to guess either their foot wear is close to equal. If anyone were to have a foot wear advantage I would bet it's Hogan.

And I can't wait to see the convention pic. Before hand how tall are you?
RP says on 12/Sep/14
Gigantism! ( Barefoot ) Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson is NOT 6'4"!!! Never was!!! Peak Rock was 6'3.25", and current 42 year old Rock is 6'2.75"....period!!!
Giantism says on 12/Sep/14
Thanks RP and i will post a picture soon, I know that most everyone on here is convinced somehow that he was/is shorter than 6'7" and 6'4-5" now, but I know he was over 6'7" barefoot simply by the fact i stood right next to him as well as Andre the Giant and others. Coming soon! Can't wait to see Terry again tomorrow.

I know many are pushing for Hogan to be close to 6'4" today, but the reality is, Hogan is at the very most 6'3" today. He barely edged out sub-6'3" The Rock and that was almost 13 years ago, when Hogan had yet to have a single hip surgery (yet was noticeable shorter than he had been only 2 years before in the WCW).
Danimal, the Rock is 6'4" and the only good picture of him standing tall showing equal footwear and level flooring is the one with the 6'4" plus Conan O'Brein.

Gigantism , can't wait to see you pics. Despite Hulk 's pic here with Lou looking 6'3" maybe 6'3.25" I totally agree with Dicksock that Hogan is 6'3.5" & his physical prime (peak) height was 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"?? I'd love to see the additional pics of this meeting with Lou that has Hulk looking almost 2" taller? Especially if we can see footwear in the pics. Look forward to seeing you comic con pics with Hogan in the next couple of weeks. Lou should be there as well. Before you post them, can you go ahead & tell us your current barefoot height? Thanks. Gigantism, I really believe that you'll find out 1st hand that current Hulk Hogan is 6'3.5" barefoot. He'll most likely be wearing those 1.3" soled Nikes he's been wearing on RAW the past 6 months.

Well, Rob has both these guys listed at 6'3". I personally think Hogan is more like 6'3.5" though. Lou is probably 6'3" with perfect posture and was 6'4" in his prime.

There is a small camera tilt in Ferrigno’s favor which is corrected here. Click Here Hogan should edge him out assuming comparable footwear. Hogan’s head also looks about the same length as Lou’s so he’s not getting that extra half inch or more in height that some hope he would.
BorkLaser says on 8/Sep/14
From those pics, Lou looks 1.88m and Hulk looks 1.89m
