Hulk Hogan's leg drop never - ever affected his height he never lost any size due to his leg drop

Hulk Hogan's leg drop never - ever affected his height he never lost any size due to his leg drop. The realality is years of taken steroids which he now admits to, caused all his hip and knee problems, look at Lou Ferrigno who is almost the same age as Hulk had two hip replacements and knees why due to steroids and heavy lifting. But almost 10 ops on Hogan's back and hip and knee replaced and Age will drop your height a bit been honest i think Hogan is lucky his walking.
Big King said on 16/Jan/17
I would say that Hogan's peak height was 6'5 1/2" because he was 2 inches shorter than Tommy Lister Jr. who was listed as 6'7" in good days.
Noshenanigans said on 15/Jan/17
Most of the evidence does point to Hogan's peak actually being 6'5.
I think the fact he was billed as high as 6'9 greatly distorts everything cause you say to yourself how could a guy be billed THAT big without being close to it?

I think 6'6 is a bit of benefit of the doubt.
Maybe he was 6'6 before his first ever leg drop - the move which caused his spine to actually bend back in on itself which is how he has lost so much height now. Along with hip and knee surgeries, the Hulk is a shell of what he was but 6'6 is asking a bit too much of how tall he actually was if you ask me.
Johan said on 13/Jan/17
Around 8 inches on Mr T there BUT he has footwear advantage of at least 0.5 inch maybe more with those cowboy boots.

So maybe 7-7.5 inches on a 5'10-5'10.5" Mr T.

So again he was minimum a decent 6'5" guy. Maximum 6'6".
dicksock said on 12/Jan/17
I still don't understand how anyone can think he was over 6'5" when fellow 6'5" Tiny Lister said they were the same height in 1989. The 6'6" announcer from Wrestlemania 2 said Hogan was his height or a little shorter. He was over an inch shorter than 6'7" billed Sid in 1992 when he was only 38. He was virtually the same height as 6'5" Jake Roberts. All the evidence in the world points to Hogan having been no more than a solid 6'5" guy in his prime. Anything over 6'6" is just ridiculous. Now we have clowns trying to say Hogan was over 6'7" when even he claimed to only be 6'7" in his prime.

Thank you David, all full length pictures with zero tilt, distance to camera or footwear advantages aside from one where Hogan had his cowboy boots on with T. He was slightly taller than the confirmed 6'7.5" Matuszack at his peak. But now watch what always happens, the usual suspects will go all out to try and diminish Matuszack's height and will say things like "he was never over 6'5" and will use photos taken that are half body or head shots with unknown ground, footwear or angles because they cannot admit the truth that is staring them right in the face with your pictures and others like the ones on that web page, that Hogan was well over 6'7" peak height.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/17
@David, Mr T is 5'10..5, in comparison Hogan looks about 6 ft 6, no more.
David said on 11/Jan/17
Rob, Hogan needs a major height upgrade. The man was a giant. Look at how he stacks up to John Matuszak.

Clearly more than 2 inches between trump and o'reilly there

________________

Vegas, you have to take into consideration the fact the O'Reilly was standing a bit in front of Trump for most of that segment. The best part to compare heights is at the 10 second mark. It is at this point that they are truly side-by-side. Trump comes up to the upper-middle part of O'Reilly's forehead. Bill's hair makes him seem a little taller than he really is next to Trump. I think Bill is 6'4" and Trump is 6'1.5" barefoot and may measure 6'3" in the right shoes; especially in his prime. There is about 2.5" between them, although it looks like more at first glance.

I remember watching his biography on the biography channel years ago. At the start, the narrator stated that he was almost 6'5'' tall. I don't think he was any taller than this at peak. I am also very friendly with old school British wrestler Rollerball Rocco who I can confirm at 5'8''. I have seen a photo of the 2 together from around the 80s and Hogan look at very best 6'3'' in it.

Dicksock, Trump is 6'3" right now. He did a complete physical before the election and the results were shared on Dr. Oz show. Trump is 6'3" and 230lbs now, so 6'2" is way too low, he was clearly closer to 6'4" peak.
---------------------

So what height is Bill O'Reilly if Trump is 6'3 today...6'7?

_________________________________________________________________

There is not 4" between them. O'Reilly is 6'4" and Trump is a solid 2" shorter. Trump is probably 6'1.5"-6'2" now and would measure 6'3" in decently heeled dress shoes or sneakers; especially in the morning. Not all nurses make patients take off their shoes when gathering height and weight info. They may not have even measured him at all. I've had that happen to me. His specific height is inconsequential to his health. There is no way Trump is 6'3" barefoot now. Even his own drivers license from his prime lists him at 6'2", and obviously he provided the license bureau with that height when he got the card.

Anonymous, one problem with your last post. Hogan was no where near his largest when he shot Rocky 3, he had just come back from a long stint in Japan where he dropped about 20 lbs from their diet. He was his largest a few years earlier when he was managed by Fred Blassie, there is a picture and video of Hogan all beefed up with 26" biceps at the time and he weighed 340lbs, throughout the 80's he hovered around 310lbs.
----

Not a bigger problem than what you suggest; a supposed legit 340 lbs man with supposed legit 26 inch biceps was BILLED approx 300 and 24 inches, whats amazing is that you believe US to believe this nonsense crap.

And how come, whenever and however we posting pics or videos of Hogan, you claim he's never ever at his biggest there no matter what. So cant you post these incredible videos and pics of your 340 lbs Hogan with his 26 inch biceps? (with references and evidence)

Both Terry Bradshaw & Roger Staubach have lost about 2" off their peak heights.

Hogan was billed 6'6 in the late 70s/early 80s so that's the absolute peak he could have been but he was circa Barry windhams peak height in truth

Trump is 6'3" and 230lbs now, so 6'2" is way too low, he was clearly closer to 6'4" peak. Medical records are the absolute proof of someone's size. And Hogan was no more than 1-2 inches shorter than Davidson, which is correct since he was right between 6'6"-6'7" at the time. There are much better pictures of a young Hogan, full body shots side by side with Christopher Lloyd who was 6'1" minimum and Hogan was over a half foot taller with little to no shoe advantage, he was 3-4 inches taller with no advantage over 6'4" men like Buster Douglas in the 80's. Anything under 6'6.5-6'7.5" is way too low for a peak Hogan.

Peak Hogan with former Dallas Cowboys QB Roger Staubach.
The NFL lists Staubach at 6'3". For some reason Wikipedia has his height at 6'.
He's probably closes to his NFL listing.

Anonymous...was John Matuszak barefoot in the pic with Hogan? No! You said he had old school 0.875" aka 7/8" converse sneakers! Hogan's cowboy boots were 2" heels! 2.75" is total non sense !! If That means Hogan would've had a 1" to 1.25"footwear advantage...I do recall this pic, John looked 0.5" to 0.75" taller. Factor in the footwear advantage...makes a barefoot John 1.75" taller than a Hogan. Which gives you what 95% of us all have always assumed on both men at their peaks!
John Matuszak: 6'7.25" to 6'7.5"
Hulk Hogan: 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/17
There's a pic that floats around here of John Matuszak and Hogan. It's from 1982, Hogan is at his biggest(right before Rocky 3 came out) its when Hogan was in Verne Gagne's organization and was being billed at 6'8-6'9 340-350 at the time(even 6'8.5 346 in a Mean Gene interview) Hogan has those giant brown cowboy boots on that must have a 2.75 inch heel. Matuszak has converse all star tennis shoes on that have no heel, almost flats and he has a haircut, so is out his customary mini Afro from that time and is on the injured reserved list from having herniated disk back surgery that ended his career.
Matuszak is about the exact same height as Hogan, so if Matuszak was 6'8 then Hogan was about 2.5 inches shorter and thus 6'5.5.(unless Matuszak was 6'10.5-6'11+
Also Hogan looked a little heavier but not much, so I'm thinking at best, a 315 give or take Hogan, to a 300 give or take Matuszak. Unless Matuszak was 325-335.
This Jives with the 6'8 Ben Davidson picture where Davidson is about a big cowboy heel amount taller than Hogan also.(Hogan looked about 50 pounds heavier than a 260ish elder Davidson)

Leach claims to be 5'11" 190 lbs and Hogan dwarfs him in size and height.

Look at 1:57 Hogan has flat footwear
Look at 2:01 and 2:04, Leach is about 1 inch taller than 5ft7.5in Meane Gene next to Hogan.

______________

I would say Leach was closer to 5'10" at his peak. He was only about 4" shorter than 6'2" peak Donald Trump. Click Here
At the time of that picture, I think Trump was still around 6'1.5" and Leach was around 5'9.5". He was probably about 5'10" in his prime and 5'11" in shoes.

Heughcrazyred6ft...Hogan & Jake are the exact same height in the Brother Love Video...I agree...almost spot on exact ......but, zoom in on Jake's footwear ...hmmm? They are at least 0.5" thicker than Hogan's if not 0.75"...that being said ...Peak Hogan was 0.5" to 0.75" taller than Jake...I'll go Hogan: 6'5.5" & Jake: 6'4.75" barefoot heights! Rob...How about a page for Jake Roberts & Randy Savage?

Hogan does edge roberts i always belive jake to be 6'5 peak hes father grizzly smith was a huge man still think hogan was in the 6'6 range but jake maybe 6'4 and hogan 6'5 sid looked 2" taller in 1992 and id put sid at an easy 6'7 peak

RP, have to disagree with Jake being 6'4 range peak, since he had a bit more that 5 inches on the Honky Tonk Man and held his own with Hogan. I say 6.5 or maybe he was a weak 6'6. He could be 6'4 range today though

I am dying to know what Rob thinks

I can tell you that there was less of a gap between my Grandfather and Hogan than Jake Roberts and Hogan in Rampage's picture.
RP said on 22/Dec/16
Mayfield, Jake did give the impression of being a strong 6'5" to 6'5.5" many times...however, Jake LOoooooved him some cowboy boots & ultra thick healed wrestling boots. In normal footwear with other 6'4" to 6'6" men...Jake was proven to be 6'4.5" to 6'4.75" ...

______________

I'm not seeing 2" between them there. The line appears to be going through the top of Roberts's head and Hogan's hair is exaggerating the difference. I'm seeing less than 1" between them. There are several other videos of them where they looked the same height; especially when Jake was in his ring gear. I think it's pretty clear based on all the evidence that Hogan was about 6'5"/6'5.5" at his tallest.
RP said on 21/Dec/16
I'm basing my 5'10.5" guess on a younger near peak 1980's Robin Leach, on Don King having him by 3.5" & Leach being 1.25" to 1.5" taller than 5'9"-ish Michael Jackson (Jackson was in a big healed boot too) Don King's 1959 arrest record has him @ 6'2" & 230 lbs.
RP said on 21/Dec/16
Google images Robin Leach & Toby Keith! Great comparison to Hulk & Robin! Hulk was about 2" taller on Leach than Toby Keith was. Toby Keith claims 6'4"...but, more like 6'3" & change...6'3.5" Max had always been my guess on him ...plus, Leach was much older in the pic with Keith & had probably lost some height. Also, Just looked at a bunch of pics of Leach with random celebs from the 1980's & 1990's ...and he really does look a legit 5'10.5",,, to possibly 5'11" at his ultimate peak. I'll go 5'10.5" on Leach.

Leach claims to be 5'11" 190 lbs and Hogan dwarfs him in size and height. They are working out in a gym so I doubt Hogan was in cowboy boots. He looked easily 6'5+ and around 300 lbs. It's crazy to think how different he looked just 5 years later when he slimmed down after he stopped using steroids.

Well straightahead all I can tell you is that in 1980 Hogan was about 6'5" maybe a tick taller. If Hogan had been 6'4" flat then my Grandfather would have been the taller of the two.
er4smiths said on 12/Dec/16
@Vegas
Yeah I see what you mean with the height difference.
Sometimes I think cause my hair is spiked up high and he's bald, that it gives the illusion of more height difference than is really there or maybe he isn't 6ft tall - guess I'll never know for sure. He did tell me he thought he was was 6'1" - maybe I'm taller than I think lol
Vegas said on 12/Dec/16
Well there is more than an inch and a half between the supposed 6ft and 6'1.5 guy at least in that photo. We would have to see footwear, ground and stance to make a more of an informed observation.

Rob is 5'8.25 barefoot and woman in first photo is 5'5.88 barefoot and the gap looks similar Click Here
er4smiths said on 12/Dec/16
@RP thanks for your thoughts. I can actually see that being possible. I will also admit, that when talking to the guy (who is in both pics)
and I when I asked who he thought was taller out of me or Hulk - he said Hulk.
I am ready to move my guesstimation of Hulk to at least 6'3" today. Which would lead me to believe he had to be at least 6'5" peak.
So I apologize to all I argued against in the past.

It happens to be one of the few moments where Fralic and Studd are equal, what would you prefer instead? Studd closer to the camera? but i guess that would be the only chance for Hogan to appear bigger...

Hogan on Johnny Carson and other peak weight appearances could easily been billed at 375 lbs+.

He could have been anywhere between 325 and 350 lbs, but I don't know the exact figure.

So now WWF billed Hogan based out from his and Stallone's movie characters, but for some reason they billed this claimed legit 325-350 lbs monster heel LESS(!) than his real weight - all according to you.

IMO peak evening:
30% - 6ft5.5in
50% - 6ft5.25in
20% - 6ft5in flat

I doubt Hogan was ever 330-350lbs range. Can´t see that.

Usually 290-295lbs through the eighties and 305-310lbs at his heaviest.

With all these kayfabe billings people seem to forget, how big a well trained 6ft5in 300lbs guy in reality is...

Once again, you are clueless. Bill Fralic was known more massive than Hogan as his biggest?! What a joke. You are just making a complete assumption about what Hogan would have been billed at. I live in the real world. I've been friends/acquaintances with dozens of big tall guys. I myself am a big heavy muscular guy. I know what I'm talking about when I tell you Hogan was at least 290 lbs at his heaviest and probably was over 300 lbs at certain points. Just look at him on Johnny Carson. He was easily around 6'5" 300 lbs. He was huge. By the way Hogan was billed at nearly 340 lbs in 1980 at Shea Stadium against Andre.
-----
You are the one who is clueless and living in a fantasyworld. Funny how you even could bring up such nonsense that Hogan was billed 340 lbs in 1980 and using that in some desperate attempt of excuse, when in fact Hogan did became fatter in late 80's but still billed much less - around 297-303. And atleast i did a fair comparison with someone of similar size i.e Fralic, you on the other hand is comparing Hogan to Johhny Carson (LOL!) and posted some random pictures with no size references at all.

____________________

Yes, and I promise you he was at least 290 lbs. He probably drifted between 285 lbs and 305 lbs in his prime during the 70s and 80s. Even in 1990, Hogan looked at least 30 lbs heavier than legit 260 lb Ultimate Warrior. Actually, I almost forgot that Tiny Lister went spoke in detail about Hogan's height and weight in 1988/1989.
Click Here

At 3:56, Lister comments on Hogan accidentally breaking his nose during "No Holds Barred". He said, "when a 300 lb man hits another 300 lb man, something gives, and it was my nose."

He also said he was 287 before filming and got up to 305 and that he and Hogan were both 6'5". Hogan was 6'5"/6'5.5" and AROUND 300 lbs. Game over.

Everyone by now should realize that this straightahead person is just out to get a rile out if you. The posts this individual makes are ludicrous and rediculous to say the least lol. Hogan has been billed anywhere between 6'6" once or twice to 6'9". He was always listed at 6'8" and just over 300lbs by the WWF. As for how someone says they would never lost them lighter, ah yes they would and do if they wanted the monsters Hogan wrestled to seek that much bigger than him and make the odds overwhelming. Hogan fluctuated between 310-330 lbs throughout his career depending on his schedule and when he was using roids more or less depending on injuries. I've said it before, I met him when young and again at 61and he was well over 300lbs easily then, today he is at least in the 290lb range. He is also still around 6'4" and was for sure over 6'6" before loosing height from injuries and surgery. Now do what I do and ignore Straightaheads comment that follows this lol

dicksock, you're the one not knowing what you are talking about. If Hogan was "well over 300 lbs" irl then he would had been billed 350+ to say atleast, more likely 400+. Thats math for kids... Legit 6'5 280 lbs Bill Fralic is a good comparison, and he looked both taller and more massive next to John Studd than what Hogan ever did.

So can we end this crap now?

_____________

Once again, you are clueless. Bill Fralic was known more massive than Hogan as his biggest?! What a joke. You are just making a complete assumption about what Hogan would have been billed at. I live in the real world. I've been friends/acquaintances with dozens of big tall guys. I myself am a big heavy muscular guy. I know what I'm talking about when I tell you Hogan was at least 290 lbs at his heaviest and probably was over 300 lbs at certain points. Just look at him on Johnny Carson. He was easily around 6'5" 300 lbs. He was huge. By the way Hogan was billed at nearly 340 lbs in 1980 at Shea Stadium against Andre.

Steve, Samuelsson was a legit 6'6 and usually weighed 144-148 kg (316-325 lbs) during his competition, often rounded up to 150 kg (330 lbs) and he had legit 24 inch arms.

This is getting ridiculous... the fankids in here believe that the biggest name in wrestling was bigger(!) than his BILLED(!) stats. LOL! Fact is that Hogan was not even CLOSE to Magnus size, even when he was bigger than usually (fatter) in late 80's and in 1990 he was billed 303 lbs but in reality he was 280 tops and his arms were nothing more than 20. And how could he been 330 lbs at some point?! in late 70's when he was making his debut he didnt look to be over 260 lbs, especially considering that he was tops 6'4

__________________

You have no clue what you're talking about. I have known dozens of people in my life above 6'4". My best friend at one time was, for a fact, just a shade below 6'5" and about 245 lbs. He was not a huge guy by any means. Hogan was easily 6'5" or more and well above 300 lbs at his heaviest. He was an extremely muscular man. His arms very well could have been 24". I doubt they were above 22", but that is still huge. Look at him at his biggest:

Kevin Nash said before he became a Wrestler was @ a Wrestling show and he said he was surprised Hogan was 6ft 4 not 6ft 9 like they had billed him and this was probably in the early 80's And he knows hogan good now so i assume the 6ft 4 guess was right ??
_________________________________________

I've told the story many times here. In 1980 Hogan stopped right next to my family on his way to the ring. He was slightly taller than my 6'4 1/2"ish at the time Grandfather. The more I talk to my Mother about my Grandfathers height the more I believe Hogan was at least 6'5" but no more than 6'5.5"
Steve said on 2/Dec/16
Undertaker Frank there is no way Hogan was only 6ft 4 at his peak, he was an absolute minimum 6ft 5 and a solid 6ft 5 at that. I have no trouble believing he was 6ft 5.5 when he was younger (late 70's early 80s). He never looked over 6ft 6 though. His arms may have been 23 - 24 inches at their largest, remember Hogan was 330lbs at one point in the early 80s. He was a similar size (height and weight) to Magnus Samuelsson (strongman) who had 24 inch arms.

I just came across this video of Hogan that I haven't seen in many years. It's his appearance on the Rachel Ray show from 2008. During this appearance, she measured Hogan's arms, and they were still 20". Clearly if they were 20" in 2008, they would have been at least 22" at his absolute biggest. Click Here

This has no relationship to his height, but I think Hogan's arms were about 22" at their biggest. I have no reason to believe that Rachel Ray was kayfabing her audience, and Hogan's arms still looked pretty impressive. But if you look at him on the Johnny Carson show, I think his arms were much bulkier their and probably not too far from the 24" billing. Again, probably around 22".

Just YouTube Hogan arm measure, they measure his arm on Vinces show.. They come out to 24 inches and they even do a close up of it, I'm guessing everyone will say it's fake lol

i think 196-198 is all believeble heights for him peak but strong 196 guy ore weak 197 guy is my best guess ( andre the giant never looked 7 foot to me) today he looks 191 but i think if he managed to get measured agains a wall he could still be 192 ore couple milimeters over. he can hardly walk

Sammartino was hugely charismatic, he wouldn't have sold out MSG a record number of times or been champion for best part of 15 years if he didn't have something. Wrestling in the 50s-70s was much different than the cartoon era of the 80s that Vince Jr ushered in. Sammartino wouldn't have been as successful in the 80s and 90s obviously but Hogan wouldn't have been as successful in the 60s-70s either, he would likely have been booked as generic midcard heel during that period.

I don't think anyone can really determine #1 in pro wrestling. If you are Mexican then nobody is bigger than Santo. Many in Japan would go with Rikidozan, people that grew up in the UK in the early 80s would say Big Daddy, if you were around in the 40s-early 50s you would probably say Gorgeous George and tons of historians still have Frank Gotch as #1

Austin drew more money in 1998-99 than anyone in history but his peak was cut short due to injury. Piper, undertaker, savage are not in the running for top 10 all time draws; Flair, Sammartino, Jim Londos, Lou Thesz, Bill Longston, Strangler Lewis and Buddy Rodgers were all legit main-eventers nearly there whole career and headlined more big drawing shows than piper, taker or savage. Savage really only was a top top guy in 1988-89 and piper in Portland and 1985 in wwf. Both could have been massive had Vince had faith in them. Piper and Hogan should have mainevented mania 2 not Bundy who stunk and Savage should have beaten Hogan at mania 5

Boss is right! Most charismatic & biggest crossover star in Pro Wrestling History! Hulk & The Rock are 1A & 1B...Too close to call. If Hulk would've had all the TV coverage & Social Media in the 1980's that excist today & throughout the 2000's ??...this debate wouldn't even be close....IMO?? Rock is awesome ...but, Hulk changed the game forever!
Boss said on 27/Nov/16
Hulk may of had a tired routine in the ring after seeing it over and over but he was actually a pretty good worker much better than he gets credit for. Hogan had more charisma in his pinky finger than Sammartino had in his whole body. The Hulk Hogan character was easily the greatest of all time and it's not even close. You can argue over 2nd to 10th but Hulk will always be #1. Andre, Stone Cold, Piper, Savage, Rock, Taker were all the biggest draws of their time at some point but Hulk is biggest draw of all-time. Hulk and Vince built sports entertainment as we know it.

Leonardo, yes sir...Bruno definitely momentarily went off script and Let us all know that Hogan was actually 6'5" & change likely (6'5.5")...since he also said possibly 6'6"...and.... (not 6'7") , about 320 lbs with 22" inch arms (not 24")...even though being obviously set up by Vince to boast about how big the Incredible Hulk Hogan was...who Vince SR was billing at the time @ 6'8" & 320-325 lbs with 24" arms & 60" chest. I think Bruno gave Hogan's real measurements on purpose. Do to the fact that he did not like Hulk Hogan & couldn't stand the fact that the McMahon's were giving such a strong push from day one on a man who had next to zero real wrestling skills...LOL!

__________________

Wow, you are reading WAY too much in to his comments. There were no scripts back then for him to go off of. He was probably just honestly estimating Hogan's height and measurements. He had nothing against Hogan. In case you don't know, Hogan had about as much technical wrestling skills as Bruno. Bruno was like the Hogan of his day. He was never a Dory Funk or Jack Brisco in the ring. He was a punch/kick power guy who did a little bit of "scientific" wrestling. I've heard Lord Alfred Hayes estimate the Undertaker's height at 6'6" or 6'7" in 1991. It wasn't because he didn't like Taker, he was probably just guessing. But yes, Hogan was very obviously more like 6'5"/6'5.5" than 6'7".

@Junior31 - I think your real close on his height of 6'2.5" today.
He may even be down to 6'2". A friend of mine took a pic with
him side by side at a signing a couple years ago. I took a pic
with my friend in a similar side by side position and I am the same
height as Hulk in comparison. I'm 6'1.75" barefoot.
There's no doubt he's lost height since his 20's but I don't think
he's lost 3".

How could Hogan be 6-6 if Undertaker and Psycho Sid who are both listed at that height on this site had at least an inch each(closer to 2) on him in the early 90's?

________________

Undertaker's peak height is listed at 6'7.5" on this site bro. Sid's peak height is listed as 6'6.75". Honestly, Taker and Sid were both about 6'7" peak and Hogan was about 6'5.5". Both Sid and Taker are about 6'5.5"-6'6" today and Hogan is roughly 6'3" or a tad more.
RYAN11 said on 12/Nov/16
Cobra; answer to that is easy, Sid was over 6'7"and wore big lifts to make him over 6'9" in his boots, and Taker was over 6'8" barefoot. Taker never looked any more than an inch taller than Hogan in the early 90's. Hogan despite what some try to purport on here as truth has lost over 3" of height he can't get back. He was down to 6'4", then had his spins fixed finally which gets him closer to 6'5" if he bothers to stand straight and tall which he seldom does. I've personally seen him and met him both when he was young in his 30's and when he was 61 years young and he lost a tremendous amount of height. Hip replacements and knee replacements along with bone being shaved down and removed from his joints combined with the big curve at the bottom of his spine is the reason and anyone who says different is in denial.

Bret was easily 6' in his prime. By 2010, he was nothing compared to how he was in his heyday. Ric Flair was about 5'11" in 1998. Here is Bret looking noticeably taller: Click Here

Austin was taller than me in person but not 6'1. He does not look 6'1 in WCW circa 1993 next to Pillman (who was supposedly measured under 5'9) or Barry Windham who was same height as Dustin Rhodes at the time in identical footwear. Rhodes can't have been more than 6'4 given he was edged out by Conan O'Brien in the mid 1990s.

You don't have to be much taller than a 6'4" guy to be 6'5"... As 6'5" Tiny Lister said, he and Hogan were both 6'5". Hogan may have been more like 6'5.5", but that's it. As far as your in-person estimates, I will just say that I'm skeptical. I'm not skeptical that you met them, I just think you are underestimating their heights. Austin is listed as 6'1.25" on this site. He always looked around 6'1". Rob has met an old Bret Hart and still thought he looked 6' (which he was), and Austin had an inch on Hart. Click Here

He may give off the impression of a 6' guy, but he was every bit 6'1" in his prime. The only other explanation is he wore some type of lifts in his WWE footwear.

No way was he only 5'10" there.

Cowboy boots with 2" heels actually only raise you're measured height by 1.75" ...due to the downward slope off the boot into the toe...you're not standing on a level 2" box...you are wearing a boot/shoe with a 2" heel...with the front half of the shoe sole only being 1.25 to 1.33" ...I've don't the experiment myself ...2" cowboy boots boost your measured height by 1.75",,, and ..2" heel logger work boots raise your measured height by 1.875"...so, a 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" barefoot Hogan would've been 6'7.25" to 6'7.5" in 2" heel cowboy boots.

He also didn't look 6'7 in shoes next to 5'10 lance Russell in the 1970s or 6'7 in wrestling boots in the early 1980s next to Seiji Sakaguchi who was listed 195cm in judo back in the 1960s..i mean if he was 6'7 in 1.25 inch wrestling gear he should have stood nearly 6'8 in cowboys and if you watch the a-team from 1985 its clearly obvious he ain't 6'8 in footwear there next to Davey Boy Smith, or any of the gang (Mr T, Peppard, Benedict)

Prime Hogan: 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"
Right at 6'7" in wrestling boots " Just look at him in ring gear from the 1980's with Ali, Buster Douglas, Gene Hackman, Trump, Pete Rose, and many others prove that Hogan was a legit 6'6.5" to 6'7" in his wrestling boots In the 1980's...only question left his how big were his soles in those boots. My guess is the standard 1.25"???
Barefoot heights for the following me 1985-1990 from all the pics & videos I've seen...Hogan 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"
Chet: 6'5.75" to 6'6"

Takerfan,
If Chet was only 6'4" barefoot peak...Then Peak Barefoot Michael Jordan was only 6'2.75" to 6'3" ROTFL!!! Look at all their pics together from the late 1980's into early 1990's...Chet always had Jordan by 1" to 1.25" ...Jordan was 6'5" barefoot (prime) but...yet Chet was only 6'4"?? HMmmm OOoooK!
Dustin said on 22/Oct/16
Chet was taller than Michael Jordan who was not 6'6", but more like 6'4.5" to 6'5". Chet looks every bit of 6'6" to me. Hogan was taller than 6'4" peak and if anyone says any different they have an agenda. He was probably 6'5.5 peak barefoot and close to 6'7" in his ring gear
David said on 22/Oct/16
Chet looks 6'7" next to 6'4.75" Michael Jordan.

The camera tilt greatly favors Chet in the Hogan pic. Look at the bricks on the wall to see what horizontal is.
Chet is also closer to the camera, giving him another advantage.
Look at how much higher Hogan's eyes are than Chet's. Hogan would be noticeably taller if Chet shaved his head and there was,no camera advantage.

Chet doesnt look to be anywhere near 6'6 compared to Otis & Jimbo... and btw, are you even for real?! THE OTHERS are the ones bending/leaning!, while Hogan is the only one standing straight.

Chet peaked 6'4 at best

No, actually there's an endless amount of evidence of height loss. It's just that your a dumb troll who just wants to mess with the people on this page. You must have never seen the episode of Hogan Knows Best where it literally shows his spine all crooked. According to legit 6'5" Tiny Lister, Hogan was 6'5" in 1989.
Click Here

All the evidence in the world shows Hogan was at least 6'5" in his prime and is around 6'3"-6'4" now. Then again, you're the same troll who claimed Roddy Piper didn't lose any height. Not to mention Hogan is 63 years old and the average man loses 1cm every decade past 40. But, that just shows how stupid you are. Just another clown that acts like he knows everything when in reality he doesn't know jack. Also, your little comparison of him and The Rock DOES show him to be over an inch taller than Rock. But, of course you're too dumb to see it. What a joke.

WOW. "crooked spine"? when coming from the one who said Andre weighed 700+ lbs in WM3 then it doesnt mean much, but i guess you believe that too, kid.

Instead of focus on me in your entire post you could had bring up some evidence, but you ofcourse didnt. Wondering who the troll is... and your too dumb to take Hogans lift in account, plus he was the one closer to the camera in those comarison pics with Vader. Theres absolutely no way that Hogan was 6'5 in the 80's (he has never been) he barely looked 6'4 and if he wasnt 6'4 he was shorter than that, not taller. Here we have your peak 80's Hogan struggling with 6'4 next to 6'4 listed Jimbo Covert and 6'2 listed Otis Wilson Click Here and here we have 6'5 Frank Thomas next to Otis Click Here

Considering how much taller 6'5 Frank Thomas looked next to Otis than what ever Hogan did in his peak, Jimbo's and Oti's listed heights probably included footwear so theres a posibility that Hogan could had been only 6'3 peak

He was clearly pretty tall back in the day and lost a lot of height due to his knee/back injuries etc.

It's about a current 6'3 and a bit in the morning and close to 6'7 peak but not quite 6'7 from me.

Dicksock; first off the line goes accords to the top of Jakes head only cutting through his hair and he was clearly 2 inches shorter than Hogan there while in Cowboy boots and Jake was a solid string 6'5" plus guy at the time. Also, yes other guys did leg drops without loosing height that early but they didn't do it every match and weee not running while jumping that high in the air, this in addition to the fact that Hogan was well over 300lbs all those years so by his mid 30's he was easily down an inch. I really love how the earlier post of the Aikman pics clearly show Hogan even to slightly taller than Troy in a full body shot with his legs bent a lot dropping his height by an inch or two while Troy is standing as tall and straight as he could.

HeightcrazyRed6ft, you're wrong.
Even with a somewhat curved spine, Hogan was still noticeably taller than PEAK Jake Roberts. There is,also an interesting photo of Hogan's curved spine on page 3.

________

The line is drawn through Jake's head. There are numerous other clips of them together where they look the same height. Hogan was a solid 6'5" guy, but that's it. The idea that he lost height or had a curved spine in 1987 is laughable. He was in perfect shape and was only 33/34 years old. You do realize that many wrestlers do leg drops or other similar moves and do not shrink from it. Hogan didn't shrink from leg drops. He shrank from decades of steroid abuse. His back deteriorated just like Superstar Billy Graham's. There is absolutely zero evidence that proves Hogan lost any real height even by the mid 90s much less 1987. He was probably 6'5.5" tops in his prime, 6'5" by the time he became Hollywood Hogan, 6'4" by the time he came back to WWE, and 6'3.5" by the time he got to TNA. He's probably still somewhere in the 6'3" range and maybe closer to 6'4" in the morning. A overall height loss of about 2" is believable and fair.

I think the case could be made that Hogan is still close to 6'4" in the morning/midday. He has probably lost about 2". He was probably 6'6" out of bed in his prime and is now 6'4" out of bed.

Here he is on Howard Stern from late 2011:

Barely looks 6ft nowadays and lost most of strength.
Sad to hear all the bad news about him but I doubt he was ever 6 7.
He did look very big in a few b movies but 6 4 is still very big and he has long arms and was quite big muscle wise.
David said on 7/Oct/16
The Hulkster was losing height well before the surgeries. He was losing height with every leg drop. It may have been 1/1000 of an inch per leg drop, but it was height loss regardless.
Anyone whose seen the x-rays of Hogan grotesquely curved spine realizes that he lost height WELL before his first knee, hip,neck, or back surgery.

This is why only 1970s Hogan was his true peak height. Hogan stacked up treaty well against 6'5.95" barefoot John Tenta.

Jake was leaner/less muscular than Hogan. Both men were basically the same height with the slight edge going to Hogan. Hogan did dwarf 6'1"-6'2" Ultimate Warrior. I think Hogan peaked somewhere in the 6'5" range for his average daily height. I'll just give him 6'5.5" peak and 6'3" now. He could have definitely been 6'6" out of bed and 6'5" at night.

He looked a little taller than usual in that clip. I think Bossman was about 6'4" and Hogan was a tad over 6'5", maybe 6'5.25"-6'5.5".

Bossman was a known heel wearer, and btw he was shorter than the 6'3 Ottman/Typhoon and and he had only 1 inch on the almost 6'2 Sting Click Here Click Here

I would say absolute tallest was almost a full 6'3 for Bossman but most likely 6'2 1/2.

Mayfield ...that video is perplexing ...Big Boss Man looks the same height as Hogan...footwear tricks? Hmmm? Because in all other pics & videos from 1988-1991, Hogan was always about 2" taller. Ray (Big Boss Man) is one of about a dozen or so pro wrestlers I have meet in my life ...meet him in Greenville, SC in 1999...I can personally confirm he was only 6'3"...6'3.5" max in 1999.

Just watched Wrestlemania one from March 1985...What I observed:
Hogan 3.5" taller than Ali
Hogan 5.5" taller than Piper
Hogan 6.5" taller than Orndorff
Hogan 7.5" taller than Mr. T
Piper looked to have a solid 2" on Mr T, at times Piper appears 6" shorter than Hogan...at other times he only looks 4.75" to 5" shorter than Hogan. On average Hogan looked 5.25" to 5.5" taller than Piper.

Just watch Wrestlemania 1 or 2 if you don't believe Hogan was ever 6'7.

The guy was huge back then. Andre The Giant wasn't that much bigger than him.

Hogan got a lot of his height back, by the way, through his successful back surgery, 3 years ago.

He went down to a low of about 6'2 in about 2004. But after his surgery he's 6'4 or 6'5.

I saw a picture of him with Lebron James last year and there is no way he's 6'2 any more. Lebron had about 3 inches on him.
Chris said on 4/Sep/16
I've just been watching Wrestlemania 1 and Hogan is huge in that. He's literally almost a foot taller than Mr T.

He looks an easy 6'7 back then. He's a giant.

JT have you ever posted you own thoughts on Terrys height? Peak? Now? Or no height loss? Just wonderingen since you post a lot of photos of hulk. I've been around on this site but can't recall your claims of his height?

I used to think 6’6” here (and 6’8” when I was a kid...) but am leaning more towards 6’5” peak and 6’3” current.

^ sounds right. 6'5 peak and around 6'3 today. Tanks JT

@James B: he couldn't have been much more in tip top peak maybe 6'5.5. One poster's father below met him in the 80s (Bobby3342) and said he had him by an inch he was 6'6 himself. Hogan wore boots a lot and another wrestler called him 6'5.

Straightahead's estimate is in line with Ali Baba's (who met Ferrigno). He said 6'2-6'2.5. I can buy a peak Lou at most 192cm (maybe 6'3.5) possibly lowball peak 6'3.25 and an absolute peak Hogan at a solid 197 (afternoon) maybe 196-197

Hogan looks 2 cm taller than Lou.

Hogan - 190-191 cm today about 6'3"

Lou - 188-189 cm Just over 6'2".
RP said on 15/Aug/16
Lou & Terry look the exact same height in that pic!!! Actually analyze closely ...line up top of grads minus Lou's hair, Hogan's sunglasses...then line up eyes, brows, nose & mouth's...Hogan actually comes out 1/4" (0.25") taller ...even with his slight lean & brad in his artificial hip. BTW...isn't this pic a year old? This pic tells me Hogan: 6'3" to 6'3.25" & Lou: 6'2.75 to 6'3" ...BTW: peak Lou was a weak 6'4"...more like 6'3.75 (true barefoot) according to my friend and former pro bodybuilder John DeFendis. He said Lou was right at 6'5" in sneakers ...barely 6'4" barefoot...more like 6'3.75"
bigmike74 said on 15/Aug/16
@Danimal find the full body shot of that pic Hogan is bending his legs in a crouched down position and Lou is standing straight. From what i see even in this pic Hogan edges him out so add a inch if Hogan straightened up.
straightahead said on 15/Aug/16
Danimal, well Hogan is still very close to 6'3 even to this day, Ferrigno perhaps 6'2 1/2. BTW impressive arms, who would you pick in a arm wrestling match between the two?

@Miko: your estimate is a good one and is the most believable. 198 out of bed 196 at night or 197.5/195.5ish
bigmike74 said on 11/Aug/16
Hogan got out of bed around 6'6.5" to 6'7" and was between 6'6" & 6'5.75" during the day prime. Now probably gets out of bed at 6'4.5" and walks around during the day at 6'4" to 6'3.5" depending on time of day.

Tenta was 0.25-0.5" taller than Hogan, there is no point in a fight where Tenta stood as straight as Hogan (example around fingerpoint/Hulkup).

Tenta was taller next to Typhoon/Tugboat and Big Bossman than Hogan was...
Each Tenta-Mene Gene comparison shows him taller than Hogan next to Mene Gene....

So I went back and watched the match between Hogan and Earthquake, Hogan to my eye was slightly taller. Footwear looked similar. I feel the 6'6" peak is a good estimation.
straightahead said on 4/Aug/16
@Jim Hopper said on 3/Aug/16
Tenta said in a Japanese wrestling magazine I had in the mid 90s that he was 6-5" flat in socks,same as Hogan was. Also said Hulk would wear slightly beefed up cowboy boots giving him a good 2 and 1/2 to 3" inch increase on his 6-5". So yeah he was near 6-8" in boots. End of the interview Tenta claimed wwf bulled on heights massively,Ultimate warrior was billed @ 6-4" and Tenta said he was a shade over 6-1" in socks.

---
Like i said earlier Tenta was indeed listed 6'5 in sumo so that only confirms that. The 6'5 3/4 measurment could have been in shoes, or its simply a typo, or just bs. Either way he was tops 6.5. So if they can find a way to list someone taller, then why not? just look at UFC, they are competing barefeet but being measured in shoes, + rounds up.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Danimal: I doubt he's lost 3 or 4". That's far fetched. But Probably 2" maybe a hair over. I can imagine at his absolute peak (prior to the wrestling career) he may have been 6'5.5 making him near the 197cm line (near lowest) then 6'5 for the remainder of his prime and now maybe 6'3-6'3.5. But out of bed, this guy couldve easily in his true prime been 199cm maybe 6'6.5ish and lost an inch.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Dicksock: your estimate for Hulk looks good. I'm an advocate of him being somewhere between 6'5-6'5.5 prime. Maybe prior to wrestling he would've been a legit 196.5-197 guy and Prob 196.2-196.5 in the 80s. adds up to what a poster below who's father is 6'6 and 6'5.75 at his lowest and met him said).

Hogan & Earthquake Tenta always basically appeared the exact same height to me from 1989-1991 when they'd match up face to face.
25% of the time Hogan may have looked 1/4 to 1/2 inch taller...and 25% of the time Tenta would look 1/4 to 1/2 taller than Hogan...but, 50% & the overwhelming majority of the time, the two men looked the exact same height. Sumo's get measures barefoot...Tenta was 6'5-7/8" @ age 23...by his late 30's he was most likely 6'5-1/2" @ best after carrying around 420 to 450 lbs for 15 plus years. Wouldn't even rule out a flat 6'5" for Tenta by age 40 @ 420-450 lbs of compression.
straightahead said on 2/Aug/16
dustin; thats not a picture showing Hogan to be taller, thats just a captured moment where Hogan appeared taller. Why dont watch the match instead? Tenta is the taller one.
RP said on 2/Aug/16
Docksock is spot on with Hogan! 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" peak barefoot height!
dustin said on 2/Aug/16
Earthquake could have been measured barefoot as well. And if anyone can show me a picture of Tenta being 1" taller than Hogan i will be more than open to changing my opinion. The 1990 pictures of Hogan and Quake during their feud shows Hogan to be taller. Not by much, but taller nonetheless
dicksock said on 2/Aug/16
Earthquake was actually referenced as 6'5.95" (6'6"):
Click Here

He was 198cm and that was wrongly converted to 6'5.75". It is really 6'5.95".

Here is him next to Hogan:
Click Here
Click Here (looks slightly tilted in Quake's favor if you look at the angle of the rope)

Again, both 6'5" Tiny Lister and the 6'6" Chet Coppock (ring announcer from WM 2) claimed 6'5"-6'6" for Hogan (Lister claimed 6'5" and Coppock claimed 6'5"-6'6"). Their claims combined with all the overwhelming visual evidence proves Hogan was 6'5"-6'6" in his prime. I think 6'5.5" prime and 6'3.5" now would be an ideal listing here.
James B said on 31/Jul/16
Earthquake could have been measured in the morning or even in shoes at 6'5.75.
Karl said on 30/Jul/16
There was a commercial recently with both Hulk Hogan and Troy Aikman. Aikman had him by about an inch (cant see lower body so no telling what kind of shoe each was wearing) and NFL always had Troy listed at 6'4"

Hogan looked as tall, or even a bit taller than Earthquake John Tenta who was measured as a sumo wrestler at 6'5.75". I think the 6'6" listing is spot on.

Tenta was also listed 6'5 in sumo (196 cm) and he had 1 inch on Hogan.

Canson said on 24/Jul/16
@Bigmike74: actually Straightahead makes good points on some of the people he comments. Hogan's height will always be a topic of debate just because he has been listed as high as 6'8" but described as low as 6'3" that's the case with all of the bigger wrestlers to portray that larger than life image. Example they listed Tyler Mane 6'10 when in his peak he was likely between 6'7 and 6'8 (he's no more than 6'7 these days but not sure if that's his peak or whether he was really 6'8). Ditto for Taker. Was likely only 6'7 range peak not 6'9 or 10. I don't think Hulk was as low as 6'3" peak but I do believe he was (at his absolute peak height 196-197 range tops maybe 6'5.5) and likely still 6'5 into the early 90s. Maybe he rounded up to 6'6 but another wrestler described both he and Hogan as 6'7 in boots 6'5 barefoot and Hogan once described himself as 6'5. Possibly the interview you showed me was a rounded height or (and this part I definitely see) he was 6'6 (198cm) range out of bed and 196 range at night and used morning height

starting wrestling 197cm / 6´5.5"
late 80s/early 90s 196cm / 6´5"
mid 90s / late 90s 195cm / 6´4.5"
since ~2002/2003 191-192cm/ 6´3"-6´3.5"

so overall heightloss after ~35 years of wrestling 2-2.5". The biggest loss was after 2000 when his spine collabsed.

_______________

I would say Hogan was never more than 6'5"-6'5.5" barefoot. He may have worn lifts to make him look taller in the 80s/early 90s. He looked no more than 6'5" as Hollywood Hogan in 1996-1998 even though he wouldn't have lost any real height by that point. He was probably 6'4" by 2002 and 6'3" by the time he got to TNA. Today, he may be 6'3-6'3.5". So, he has lost about 2"-2.5" as you claimed.
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Absolute most in his prime: In the 80s/90s Max 197-198 out of bed and 195-196. He was somewhere between 6'5-6'5.5 maybe in his prime on avg. maybe he could pull 6'6 out of bed back then and an easy 6'7 in cowboy boots. But today he's lucky if he's far over 6'3.

To be fair HHH looks 6'1.5" alot nowadays, he doesn't look as long in the torso anymore.

Austin has admitted himself that he has shrunk over the years because of wrestling and injuries.

Maybe 6ft flat in undercooking him a little but he could be struggling with 6ft 1 today.
miko said on 21/Jul/16
Austin at 6'0 flat and HHH at 6'1 is comedy gold.

HHH still looks 6'2 today when he stands straight.

@Heightchecker34: my exact estimate. Maybe he was 197 absolute prime and 196 in the 80s always looked 6'5 range and I recall another wrestler calling him 6'5.

heightchecker34 said on 19/Jul/16
For some reason, probably due to his fame and what he has done in the industry, I always believed Hogan was 6'7. Now, that I am a bit older and interested in heights, especially with wrestlers, it is clear he was 6'5. Maybe 6.5'5 peak, but never below. Present day he is around the 6'3 range with surgeries and due to old fashioned time. Essentially he lost around half an inch every decade since 1975.

Have fun thinking that. Just know that nobody here or anywhere else agrees with you. Other than ersmith or whatever his name is. Even if you actually think Trump was never above 6'1", Hogan was still 4" taller. By the way, Slaughter was a legit 6'3". He was about an inch taller than 6'2" HHH in the late 90s. Even the pic you posted of him and Warrior shows Slaughter to be taller. Just look at the top of their heads. Not only that, but Slaughter was giving Warrior a bearhug. Every wrestling fan knows that the guy giving the bearhug is going to losing height from doing the move. Yet, Slaughter was STILL taller than Warrior in that shot even though Warrior was standing straight as possible and Slaughter was leaning in with his knees bent.

Funny how they look the same height. There is plenty of footage that proves Vince was at least 6' in his prime. He could even look a solid 6'1" at times.
----

Warrior was most likely TOPS 6'1 1/2 so he could had been like 6'1, and in that video we can see that Vince was still shorter. Slaughter at 6'3 is pure BS, he only had 1 inch on a leaning Austin and he was also only a tad taller than Roddy Piper (who was only a tad taller than Bret) and no, Slaughter was not taller than HHH, in fact he was edged out by HHH.

_______________

You clearly know nothing. That pic of Slaughter and HHH you posted is about as worthless as the Slaughter/Warrior pic you posted. Watch this video and look from 5:15 to 5:20 for a real comparison. I would recommend pausing at 5:18 and also 5:37.
Click Here

Not only does Slaughter look taller, but HHH has a sizable footwear advantage. I know attention to detail isn't your strong suit, but HHH's heels were pretty chunky in that segment whereas Slaughter was wearing flats. Even if they were the same height in that video, Slaughter would still be taller because of HHHs footwear advantage. Bottom line is Slaughter was 6'2.5" at an absolute minimum and probably 6'3".

Slaughter and 6'2 tops HHH Click Here

So fact is, Slaughter was tops 6'1 1/2 - 6'2 range. and btw Hogan never had 4 inches on him, it was 3 or less. And it even get worse if we listen to posters like Danimal,, who claims Austin was never taller than 6'0 and HHH 6'1 1/4. With these heights to compare with, Slaughter was only 6'1

@straightahead are you serious? I don't lie. I tell the truth good, bad or otherwise. You should seriously consider looking into a mental health evaluation it's pretty clear that you are in very much need of help. Your height judgment is equal to Erik Rosenquist a.k.a er4smiths. I have numerous correctional officers and many L.E.O's who come to my gym in Jax Beach, Fl that's where i got my information from not from my personal opinion or guess please get the help you need before 1 day someone will figure out who you are and beat the holly hell out of you for being such a idiot a $$ hole.

Gene Hackman was actually diescribed as 6ft 4 in news articles back in the 80's. Nonsense ofc but he did look 6ft 2 next to the 6ft 4 Christopher Reeve.

Now even with Reeve being a smidge under 6ft 4 I still wouldn't have said that Hackman was much less than 6ft 2.

Hogan looks like a solid 6ft 5.5" inch there next to him. However in his ring attire he usually had big boots and so probably had a footwear advantage. I think he was more 6ft 5-6ft 5.5" personally rather than pushing 6ft 6.

Now with Big John Studd getting a 6ft 6.5" listing I think Hogan should be downgraded as he was an inch or so shorter.

RP said on 15/Jul/16
Rampage: John Studd aka John Minton actually used to be very lean & lanky! Was a college basketball player. His own family & friends have talked openly about how Big John used massive amounts of HGH & steroids to add 100 lbs to his 6'7" frame. 6'6.5" to 6'7"-ish. John used HGH & steroids to go from a 6'7" & 230 lbs power forward to a 330 lbs monster! So, Big John was actually probably more naturally leaner than Hogan...if the two stayed natural...Hogan also has a tendancy to get pudgy in his teens & 20's.

A young and healthy (pre-multiple surgeries) towering 6'2" Gene Hackman and 6'2"/6'3" Donald Trump. He was every bit 6'6" at this stage of his life. Today he's the same height as Gene and Donald were in those pics (him next to a legit 6'4" Troy Aikman)

As usually you are making up heights just to fit in your Hogan 6'6 fantasy. Its the same case everytime time - only Hogan can shrink! but you still imagine a 60+ Gene Hackman to be 6'2 (if he ever was), and since was Trump 6'2-6'3?! he didnt even look 6'1 next to Vince McMahon.

_________________

You need to stop trolling bro. Donald Trump was every bit 6'2" in his prime, and was noticeably taller than Vince McMahon. I don't know how tall Gene Hackman was, but every site, including this one, lists him at 6'2". Hogan had at least 4" on him.

Even in his 60s, he still looked around 6'2" when standing to his full height. Obviously, he would have been taller in his 30s/40s. The average man shrinks .25"-.5" every decade from 40 onward. Trump is 70 now, so he could have easily been 1" taller in the pic with Hogan (26 years ago) than he is now. Those pics prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hogan was at least 6'5" in his prime and that he could have been 6'6". If you can't accept that, that's your problem.

I find it hard to believe that Studd just edged Hogan...maybe his larger frame gave that illusion. Hogan was naturally leaner and put on mass

6'5.5" next to Hackman but whats the footwear?

Anyway Hogan always pulled off looking solid 6'5" at peak , I just don't see 6'6".

He still looks close to 6'3" nowadays .
