Hulk Hogan's height is 6ft 3in (191 cm)

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.

In Footwear I would say Joey 6´5.75", Hogan 6´4.5", Arnie 6´0"

Joey had max 0.75" from his shoes
Hogan at least 1.34"
Arnie about 1.25"

So doing the math:

Joey 6´5"
Hogan max 6´3.15"
Arnie 5´10.75"

If Joey is under 6´5" like some claim - BAD BAD news for Arnie and Hulk.


Rob,
Hulk at 6´3" and Arnie 6´0" doesn´t make any sense seeing them together.
If Hulk was in lifts why is Joey in flat footwear still 1"+ taller.

@dickshock Yes keep dreaming. He looks 2-2.5' inches shorter having more footwear. The most i can give him is 6'2.5".

That's because you're an idiot. You think Joe made Hogan look small? That is laughable. Hogan had a slight footwear advantage, but still looked close to 6'4" with Joe. Hogan was thicker and more muscular than Joe as well.

Good pic! Hogan has an easy 5" on HBK.

___________

There is no way there is only 5" between them in that pic. The top of Shawn's head is right around the bottom of Hogan's nose. The difference is closer to 7" than 5". But, that is just one picture.

he was always billed 6'8" in wwf early days not 6'7" that was way later. 6'6-7" prime for hulkster everything above seems true to what hes saying.
RP says on 29/Aug/14
Good pic! Hogan has an easy 5" on HBK. HBK looks to be 0.5" to 0.75" taller than Flair. That night Hogan had on 1.3" sneakers, HBK had on 1.75" boots & Flair had on 1" dress shoes. Which would make HBK & Flair both 5'10.5" barefoot & Hogan 6'3.5" to 6'3.75" barefoot.

He looks about 6.5" taller than HBK and Flair. I doubt Shawn and Flair are actually the same height like they are in that picture. Hogan is easily looking like a solid 6'4" next to Shawn and Flair though. Based on most of the evidence, I think an upgrade to 6'4" is in order.

Rob, I'd take a look at this recent pic of Hogan/Shawn/Flair. It is highly unlikely that he is only 6'3". Hogan's most current claim is that he is 6'4"-6'4.5". I believe he is about 6'4".

I do not have a link to the picture yet, but Hogan posed for a picture backstage in Raw thus week with Flair and HBK who was wearing cowboy boots and Hogan had him by a half a foot minimum!! Hogan is clearly 6'5" minimum today.

He looked like a shrimp next to Joe Manganiello, having footwear advantage. I think that he must be closer to 6'2" these days.

What are you talking about. He did not look small at all next to him. They were around the same height and Hogan was bigger.

6'2 3/8 looks to be exact for Lesnar.

I respect your opinion, but I have met the man and my 6'3" friend had more than .5" on him. I can assure you of that.

That IS more than .5'' ;);

In all seriousness - you know I respect you on here as well, but theres just something that doesnt add up with your sighting. It's not like your buddy and Lesnar went back to back, or like Brock cared to stand up properly. I can't accept a 6'1 Lesnar which results in a 5'9ish Couture and a 5'8ish James Toney (both physcially impossible), and a 6'2-6'2.5 max Allistair Overeem.

Hogan was never 6'7 why are so many people blinded by 'billed heights'?

He was around 6'5 or a tad over at his tallest and probably 6'6 fresh out of bed on a good day.


A legit 6'5 will look 6'7 too many

I have no idea where to post this since she doesn't have a (pardon the pun) a page on here. I met WWE Diva's Champion Paige. I am 5'9.5" barefoot. 5'10.5" in shoes that I was wearing. I had about 1/2" footwear advantage over Paige. How tall do you think Paige is? 5'6"? 5'7"? let you guys decide. Click Here

________

Assuming you actually had .5" of footwear advantage, she looks about 5'6". You are a solid 4" taller than her in the picture. Your posture is sub-par as well. You may be 4.5" taller, but possibly with .5" of FA. Overall, she is likely 5'5.5"-5'6".

Hogan was never 6'7 why are so many people blinded by 'billed heights'?

_________

Because that's not just his billed height. Hogan has told the story of when he started wrestling and mother measured him barefoot as 6'7". Most people would not question Hogan because they don't think he would lie about something so trivial. He was clearly a big tall guy, so 6'7" is not far fetched. It's only when one digs deeper they can see Hogan was likely not that tall. For example, Tiny Lister's comments make Hogan's 6'7" claim less believable.

Hogan loses 3 inches, no one cares, or argues the possibility of Hulk's peak height being 6'6". Arnold loses 1.5 inches from peak 6'1", immediately everybody says Arnold was never 6 foot.
6'2 says on 20/Aug/14
if rock is 6'3-4" at wm18 hogan is 6'4-5" hes lost 2-3" by then so prime around 6'6" no? today he could be 6'4" sometimes looks as low as 6'2".my uncle met him at a bar in 1989 who says he 6'4 possibly 6'3" hes taller than myself at 6'2" and said hogan had defo 3-4" on him then not sure about footwear so thats 6'6-7" for hogan then.

He has pretty much a head on Gene here:

Hogan had a head on Gene in his prime when he stood his absolute straightest with his head raised up.

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

A raised head lowers the headlength, in normal position like the frankfurt plane Hogan had less than a full head on meane gene - so less than 10", but I put peak Gene over 5´8" before Hogan under 6´5".




Rob, how about adding Gene O. ??
cobra says on 19/Aug/14
In the mid 90's in WCW before he lost height he never looked more than an inch or inch and a half taller than Vader, who was billed 6-5 so was probably 2-3 inches shorter.

Gene likely wasn't even 5'8" in his prime, so there is no way he is that now. I'd say more like 5'6" now. Hogan looked about a head taller than Gene when he stood up straight. He looked about as tall next to him as he did in the 80s.



peak Hogan wasn´t a full head taller than peak Gene, so either Hogan wears lifts in his Retros or Gene has lost more height than Hogan.

I think it´s quite possible that Gene lost more height but what does that mean for a peak Hogan?! Noway 6´6"

_________

Hogan had a head on Gene in his prime when he stood his absolute straightest with his head raised up. Prime Gene was probably 5'7.5" and Hogan was 6'5.5".

Too much evidence that Hogans 6'4 to ignore. His posture is terrible yet he's taller than orton, Jon jones, The Rock, Lesnar. He's def closer to 6'4 than 6'3. He may be closer to 6'5 than 6'3.

And we have a true medically documented barefoot height measurement on Brock Lesner @ 6'2 3/8" or 6'2.375"!!!

Really??? Than post this documented barefoot height measurement of Lesnar, 'cause I have never seen it. And seeing as I don't see this measurement being mentioned on the Brock Lesnar board, I'm guessing I'm not the only one.
RP says on 18/Aug/14
I've heard Jon Jones was measured @ 6'3.5" barefoot...but can't confirm that. That's just what he said on The Opie & Anthony Show over a year ago. That he was 6'3.5" barefoot & was currently 221 lbs...but not a true fighting condition.

Mean Gene @ 5'6" is absurd!

_____________

No it's not. Gene was barely taller than 5'7" Regis at WM VII in 1991. Even if he peaked at 5'8", it is very possible that he has lost 2". He is old and fragile looking and has also been having health problems. Hogan was about a head taller than him on Raw last week.

5'6" + 10" = 6'4".

Also, if Lesnar is 6'2 3/8" than Hogan is 6'4" because he was clearly at least 1.5" taller. Plus, Lesnar's sneakers looked thicker than Hogan's and he was standing much straighter than Hogan, even standing on his tip toes at some points.
RP says on 18/Aug/14
In 2004 Brock Lesner was measured barefoot by the NFL & Minnesota Vikings @ 6'2 3/8" & weighed 286 lbs stripped down to his underwear !
RP says on 18/Aug/14
Flair @ 5'10" & Piper @ 5'9.5" puts Lesner @ 6'1.5" ! And we have a true medically documented barefoot height measurement on Brock Lesner @ 6'2 3/8" or 6'2.375"!!! Just look at his brief stare downs with Flair & Roddy from Last week! Roddy is 5'10.25" & Flair is 5'10.5" to 5'10.75"!!!

_____________

There is no way Flair is around 5'11" now. He wasn't any taller than Jay Lethal in TNA. I stood next to Flair in 2004 and he looked about 5'10" then. Piper and Flair are both probably 5'9.5"-5'10". Gene likely wasn't even 5'8" in his prime, so there is no way he is that now. I'd say more like 5'6" now. Hogan looked about a head taller than Gene when he stood up straight. He looked about as tall next to him as he did in the 80s.

I would expect the height difference between hulk and andre would be less then Hulk/Nash. At W3 Hogan was at 6'5" lets say and Andre looked Under 6'10" bent over. Now Andre's height is also in his large head. Nash is leaner and has normal proportions so Now you are looking at 6'10" Nash and maybe a 6'3.5 Hulk. I still think Andre in his prime, standing very straight could have been an even 7 footer.

If you take a close look at Hogans footwear he was wearing Jordans on his birthday.


Air Jordan 3 Retro, they give 1.34", Halls shoes give him 0.5-0.7" so even if I´m wrong and Hogan has no help in his shoes he has a decent advantage over Hall.
I watched raw again and at one point when Hall stood straight, he looked to edge Hogan.

Hall 6´4.25" barefoot, in shoes near 6´5"
Hogan 6´4.5" in his Jordans, barefoot just a tad over 6´3"

Click Here Straighten Hogan up and I'm still seeing around a 6 inch difference. That's roughly how Andre should have looked in his staredowns with Hogan if he was ever at or close to the 7 foot mark.

___________

I see your point. However, I recall there being moments during that segment where the difference between Nash and Hogan was not so great. I suppose it is possible that Nash is still around 6'9.5" and Hogan is more like 6'3.5". What do you think of the fact that Hogan and Hall appeared to be the same height? Is Hall down to 6'4" at the tallest? I suppose with his age and his extremely poor health up until last year, it is possible he went from 6'5" to 6'4". I'll say this: We know Hogan is no less than 6'3" and no more than 6'4".
Giantism says on 13/Aug/14
Well surprise, surprise LOL. All the height lowering posters are in full force on here trying to justify their low claims with bogus statements after Hogan stood 6'5" next to Hall and Nash on Raw. Red; Hogan had the exact same shoes on as Hall if you cared to look so no advantage either way there and when Hogan stood up tall once or twice he was slightly taller than Hall sorry.
Icehole73 says on 13/Aug/14
OK, Has anyone given the Hulkster credit that his arms and shoulders were more muscular and larger than Brocks. Not to mention he is thicker chest to back. I put hogan at 6 3.5" - 6 4" and Brock 6 2". Nash still looking a good 6 10".
Eric says on 13/Aug/14
Regardless, looks to have over an inch on Lesnar who is 6'2 according to this site, has an inch on the rock who is 6'3 according to this site and in 2 different recent pics looks taller than orton who this site says is 6'4, he seems much taller than triple H, and he does this all with bad posture.

This is in huge need of an upgrade and the people saying 6'2 are ridiculous
JT says on 13/Aug/14
Click Here Straighten Hogan up and I'm still seeing around a 6 inch difference. That's roughly how Andre should have looked in his staredowns with Hogan if he was ever at or close to the 7 foot mark.

Click Here Looks like a solid 6 inch difference. Definitely more height than Andre ever had on Hogan

_____________

The only one of those pics that is valid is the one at the top left and Hogan's posture is pretty bad. If he stood straighter he would look taller next to Nash and look 2" taller than Lesnar. If you look closely, you can see Lesnar standing slightly on his tip toes. He was definitely doing it this segment off and on.

______________

Eric says on 13/Aug/14
Hogan has a couple inches on Lesnar, there's pics where he looks taller than orton and all this with bad posture. It's pretty clear Hogan is 6'4.

Hogans claim was that he was 6'4 but after recent surgeries is 6'5. I think realistically Hogan was 6'3 and is now 6'4.

_____________

Hogan hasn't claimed 6'5" for over a year now. He has claimed numerous times that he is 6'4" to 6'4.5". I bet he is around 6'4". He for sure looked like it on Raw. He was nearly identical in height with ~6'5" Scott Hall. If people want to lower Hall's height to 6'3", then that is not only ridiculous, but is lowers everyone else. People just need to accept that Hogan is what he claims, 6'4". It's obvious at this point.
miko says on 13/Aug/14
Hogan and Lesnar had a staredown in 2002, which looked very similar to the staredown they had on RAW Monday. Again Hogan didn't seem too bothered about standing up completely straight and raising his eyeline, I wish he would so we could get a better comparison.

If Lesnar is 6'2, I'm having a hard time seeing Hulk looking less than 6'3.25/6'3.5 in that staredown. Under 6'3 is crazy talk.

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. Hogan looked like a solid 6'4" tonight on Raw. He was the same height as Scott Hall and wasn't too much shorter than Nash. He had around 2" on the solid 6'2" Lesnar. Lesnar was clearly trying to look as tall as possible and even stood on his tip toes. Hogan's height should be changed to 6'4", which is what he claims anyway.

I met Lesnar in Vegas in 2010 with my 6'3" and 5'5" friends. Lesnar was 6'1". My friend had a couple of inches on him. He was a big dude though (frame wise).
Jeffery says on 12/Aug/14
6'2.5" at best. I don't believe he ever stood at 6'7" either. But he did lose height.
RP says on 12/Aug/14
Well, I just watched Raw replay again. Hulk only seems to have Brock by 1" & not 1.5" when he stands straight up for a few seconds. So, here is everyone in that rings barefoot height based on the fact that we know Brock is 6'2 3/8" barefoot. Hulk Hogan: 6'3.5", Scott Hall: 6'4", Kevin Nash: 6'8.25", Ric Flair 5'10.5", Roddy Pipper 5'10", Mean Gene: 5'8" & Jimmy Hart: 5'9.25"...John Cena: 6'0.5"
Red183 says on 12/Aug/14
I´m sure Hogan has a bit help in his Retros, I bought the same shoes and they give 1.34" at US-size 12 but they don´t look as chunky as Hogans and Hogans knees looked way to high for normal proportion.

Hogan to me looked taller than Hall but I think Hogan had an easy inch footwear advantage over Hall.

Hulk had Brock by 1.5" when he stood completely erect once for about 3-4 seconds. However, Hulk seemed to be having issues again standing straight & not bending & leaning on the left hip. When he'd slouch & brand that left leg/hip he & Brock were the exact same height. But, yeah...that one time he stood completely straight for a couple of seconds he had The 6'2 3/8" Brock Lesner by 1.5". However, Scott Hall was a 1/2" taller than Hogan. Which makes sense. Hall is now 6'4.5"...down from his peak of 6'5"-6'5.25". Also, Nash only looks 6'8" now. Flair 5'10.5" & Piper 5'10". I agree, Hogan should be changed on both ends ...Peak 6'5.5" & Current 6'3.5"! But, not a true 6'4"...it's obvious from last night that the later in the night it gets, the harder it is for Hogan to maintain full posture. A 7pm Hulk Hogan here lately looks a good 1/2" taller than an 11pm Hulk Hogan. I also think that sometimes Hogan wears a wrap around Ab/back brace. To help with his back support under his shirts. Reason being two weeks ago his stomach looked completely flat. And a few days later he had a pretty big guy pushing his shirt outwards again.

Gigantism, 4" are you kidding me???!!!!! Hogan is only 2" taller than Leon White "Vader" in that pic!! C'mon fella.

_________

I can see 3" if Hogan stood straighter. If you look closely, you'll see his head was tilted down a bit. I wonder if Hogan had some small lift in his boots when he was in the yellow and red. That could explain why he inexplicably looked shorter as Hollywood Hogan. Could he have been 6'5" barefoot as fellow 6'5" Tiny Lister said and have been 6'6.5" in his boots? I think that would explain a lot. There is no way he shrank by 1996-1998. Also, he looked taller again when he returned to the yellow and red in 1999.

No RD I am not kidding, look at the top of their heads not where their eyes are. Hogan has a massive head from the eyes up and yes he easily has 4 inches on Leon there.

Monday Night Raw is having a big 61st birthday celebration for Hogan tomorrow night August 11th. We should get the opportunity to see Hulk stand next to a lot of people to get many height estimates.

So, 1994-1995 Hogan was still 6'5" if Vadar @ 40 years old was stills solid 6'3" barefoot?

And Yes, Leon White was only 6'3" barefoot...confirmed from his few seasons he played in the NFL with The LA Rams.

To sandmow007 and editor Rob, we have unrefutable proof from the Conan show that the Rock is 6'4" today and nothing anyone's guesstimates or otherwise can change that. So, we also know that Hogan was for sure an inch taller than the Rock or more at WM30, this has also been proven by photo and video evidence so nothing Viper or anyone else says can change that. Point is simple - Hogan is well over 6'4" today barefoot and everything we see of him now proves it beyond any doubt, so Rob can we expect to see you post his real height on here and remove this erronous low height you have listed here? And the same for Dwayne "The Rock", he is listed an inch shorter than his true height and should be corrected as well.
Eric says on 9/Aug/14
Hogan looks slightly taller here too

sandmow007 says on 9/Aug/14
I pretty much agree with the estimate of Hogan being 6'3 but its wrong to have him listed the same height as the rock.

This website has The Rock at 191 cm and Hulk Hogan at 191.
Thats wrong. Hogan is taller than The Rock, we've all seen this in their appearances together in WWE, most recently at wrestlemania 30

Hogan is 6'3 which is 192 cm not 191. The Rock would be 191. Get it right.

How can we believe the listed heights if the maths between inches and centimeters are incorrect?
[Editor Rob: there's nothing really up with the math.
2.54cm is a an inch, so 2.54 * (6*12 + 3) gives 190.5cm. It's a rare case in which you could display either 190 or 191 as being 6ft 3 as both are an equal distance from the 6ft 3 mark.]
Giantism says on 9/Aug/14
Look at this picture of Hogan and Vader nose to nose, Hogan's head is at least 4 inches taller than Vader's, and Vader was 6'3" minimum (yes they billed him at 6'5" but that would make Hogan 6'9" here). More proof of Hogan's true height of 6'7".

Sid was pretty obviously either the rare under billed wrestler ( there have been a few), or as i suspect the biggest lift wearer in the business. Every single video or photo of him from the WWE shows he was clearly the same height as the 6'8.5" Taker, so 6'7" is impossible, just as it is when he was within an inch or two of the 6'10" Nash, and he had Hogan who was till almost 6'7" at the time by an inch or two. But do look carefuly at Sids boots, they do look elevated in the heel and he stands as if on his toes which probably explains why he broke his shin bone by jumping from the turnbuckle.

Sid was billed as 6'7" in his debut and he definitely was no 6'8" next to 6'2" Bubba Ray in ECW. His mugshot from the mid 2000s proved that he is now 6'6" max. Even 6'5" Tiny Lister said he and Hogan were legit 6'5" in 1989. I think Hogan was about 6'5.5" in his prime. As far as Hogan and Hall from Bash 96, Hogan's cowboy boots were not very thick. I doubt he had much advantage over Hall. I think Hogan was still a solid 6'5" in 96. Now he is probably 6'3.5" or so.

I don't know. Sid (in 1990) looked around the same height, if not slightly short than Kevin Nash on their Family Feud appearance. There are plenty of moments where they are both standing tall, and it's almost impossible to separate the 2 of them. Remember, at THAT time (1989), Taker seemed to look up to Sid (prior to them joining the WWF). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9EuPSJIH3g (at the 1:00 minute mark). Also, there's the first part: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZOTkRNi9DM

_____________

There is one very important fact that you missed: Sid was wearing cowboy boots. Watch the very beginning of the show. Even with the footwear advantage, Nash was clearly the taller of the two. Look at 3:12 of the first part. Nash had inferior posture but still looked about 1" taller. Also, look at 4:47 of the first part. Look at 5:51 of the first part. Sid was about 6'8.5" in those cowboy boots and Nash was probably about 6'10" in his sneakers. When they wrestled each other in the WWF, Nash looked about 2" taller in a staredown they had.
Giantism says on 6/Aug/14
Many of you really need to learn what an inch is, saying Hogan had only 2" on Buster Douglas when he only came up below Hogans eyes is ludicrous, so is trying to say the 6'3" Ali is 6'1, and Hogan had 4" minimum on him all day long. And Davidson only had 1" on Hogan not 2, check your eyes. Hogan was 6'7" at least in the eighties, also Jake the snake was over 6'5", and Rock is 6'4", not 6'2 as his recent appearance standing eye to eye with Conan O'Brien proves beyond any doubt!
Arch Stanton says on 6/Aug/14
Heston might have lost a bit by the 80s but yeah in that pic Hogan really looks minimum 6'6". Heston was a strong 6'2" guy peak, I've seen enough comparison (like with Orson Welles etc) to be convinced of that.
RP says on 6/Aug/14
I'm going to give young Johnny Carson 5'10.5"
Danimal says on 5/Aug/14
I believe that Hogan was around 6'6" until around 1990 or so, considering he had a full 1" on 6'5"+ Hilbilly Jim, both in 1985 and 1989 (the pics are on Hilbilly's website). He also appeared about 2" shorter than 6'8" Ben Davidson and had 2" on 6'4" Buster Douglas and 2" on 6'4" Big Bossman and 1" on 6'5" Jake the Snake Roberts. By the time he entered the WCW, he was still around 6'5", considering he had minimum 2" on 6'3" Lex Luger, however, by the NWO days he wad down to maybe 6'4.5" at best. Had he started having back and knee surgeries by that point? Evidence strongly points to yes, considering he no longer trained his legs (hence the tights).

Something then happened between the late 90's (even 2000) and his return to the WWF in 2002, when he barely edged out 6'2"-6'2.5" Rock at WM18. He had YET to have his first hip replacement by this point, but he noticeably looked more compressed. A possible neck fusion (his neck did look shorter). After that, his body continued to break down and he had his first of many hip replacements and many more back and knee surgeries, pushing him down to a flat 6'3", or just under. One only has to look on Hilbilly's site to see pics of him and Hogan in 1985 and 1989 (Hogan had that solid 1" on him) and then their pic together from somewhere between 2002-2004, whereby Hilbilly Jim had 2" on Hogan. For those who refuse to accept that, the pictures are there for all to see and have been for about a decade now.

As for what he is today, it's hard to tell, but if you stacked him up side by side next to a 1979-1980 version of himself, many people's mouths were drop. The same thing happened to HIS idol and mentor (Superstar Billy Graham in the mid-late 80's) I give him a solid 3" height loss (no less). I can go more than that, but I'll say he's slightly under 6'3" today (At best). I feel that is reasonable and it is concurrent with Rob's estimate as well.

Hogan was wearing his wrestling trunks so I would guess that Hogan was also wearing his wrestling boots. The camera tilt/camera angle favors Ali but Hogan still looks to have a good 4" on Ali.

So, if Ali was 6'1" at that time then Hogan appears to have been at least 6'5".

There is no way Ali was only 6'1" in 1985. He was still a solid 6'2" in my opinion. Hogan looked around 6'6" with him.

Hulk was 6'5/6'5.25 in the 80's, never a full 6'6. Down to 6'4.5/6'4.75 in the mid to late 90's and then dropped down to around 6'4 in the early 2000's after he started breaking down physically. He's dropped another half inch in the last decade and is down to 6'3.5 or so now, 6'3 in bad posture.
Jack1999 says on 5/Aug/14
I remember one time Hogan returned from knee surgery when he was in wcw maybe 98 or 99 and Micheal Buffer announced that "after knee surgery, now standing 6'4 3/4 inches" So there you go, they actually gave away his real height on the wrestling once.

My point is that evidence can be misleading. I still say he was 6'5" in 1997.

The more I see of Hulk Hogan I'm thinking that he was 6'5 bare foot in his prime, 6'6 with hist wrestling boots and 6'7 with his cowboy boots.

However that's just based on how tall he looks now which looks about 6'3 and if you factor in like 9 back surgeries, double knee operations, hip replacements etc, etc with his age you start to think maybe he really was 6'7.

Hogan was mountain in 1979- dwarfed guys everywhere. That was his most impressive size and height. Always a touch shorter than Studd. Who was 6'7. So hogan was a realistic 6'6. Taker was also a bigger dude in the 1990 matches they had. He measured up very close to Tiny Lister who was an easy 6'5

Watch him in the ring with Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sid, Undertaker in the 1990s. He's not dwarfed. Very much around the same size as Undertaker and Sid.

People look for conspiracies but the guy is probably telling the truth - he was 6'7 as a young man. Went down to about 6'6 in the 1990s. Went down to about 6'3 in the next few decades but is back up to about 6'5 now
Chris says on 30/Jul/14
But that "short" period was issues with his back. Watch him on TV now - he's really big again. I saw him next to Cena recently - he was about 4 inches taller than him

I agree he shrunk a lot around 2008. Which is where much of the debate comes from. He was a bir bigger than The Rock at his "Short" period. Probably about 6'3

Seems pretty logical to me that he was 6'7 in the 1970s/80s when he was young. Maybe dropped down to 6'6 in the 1990s. Then down to 6'3 with his injuries. But is now back to 6'4 or 6'5 with successfull surgery
Chris says on 29/Jul/14
I don't see the debate about Hogan. Even in the 1990s when he was in his 40s he was around the same height as Sid Justice and The Undertaker - they both maybe had an inch on him. 1.5 max. And he was obviously taller than Scott Hall. He was obviously at least 6'5.5 to 6'6 even in the 1990s
Chris says on 29/Jul/14
Look at Hogan fight Sid Justice in 1993 - Sid maybe has 1.5 inches on Hogan. Sid was 6'8 back then. Hogan is an easy 6'6

Jackie, you keep showing pics of bent knee'd Hogan with Hall? Which makes Hall look 1/4"-1/2" taller. When Hogan & Hall stoop up perfectly erect next to each other in similar footwear from '96-'98 Hogan was about 1/4" taller. By '98 They were the exact Same height...by 2000 Hall was a 1/4" to 1/2" taller than Hogan.

What's wrong with you, sir? Do you really see Hogan being 1 or even 2 inches taller than Hall? Keep in mind that Hulk had cowboy boots on that night, while Scott was in his wrestling boots.

In the late 90s Hogan and Hall were really close in height. I would call 1-2 cm difference in the favor of Scott.

Use the 5'8" Daniel Bryan as a reference, he only comes up to the bottom of Hogans massive head meaning Terry has him by at least 10"! See for yourselves doubters! Click Here

Hulk seems taller than Randy orton in a recent pic and is taller than Lou ferigno. Also taller than the rock. I think hulk is 6'4. 6'3 is low.

I think a lot of this comes from hogans bad posture he often has due to back problems like in the commercial with aikman

You're right Frank, Peak. Scott Hall was 6'5" barefoot...is now 6'4" barefoot. Was billed @. 6'8". & 6'7" early in his career & by the AWA. 6'7" by WWF/WWE & 6'7" & 6'6" by the WCW in the mid to late 90's. Hall recently said in an interview that in his prime he was 6'5" & 275 lbs... But, they billed be & 6'7" & 285-290. 1994-1996 Hogan was a 1/2" taller than Hall...'1997-99 Hogan was exact same height as Hall. By 2000-2001 Hall was a 1/2" taller than Hogan. But, we all know very well that Hogan's back, knees & hip went through hell with accelerated loss if cartilage & multiple major surgeries from 1999-2005.
Frank says on 23/Jul/14
Hall was about 6ft 5 I don't believe he was a legit 6ft 6

Funny fact for everyone. Rock had Jimmy Fallon who is barely under 6' by no less than 4" last night, and it cannot he argued or denied that Hogan had at least 1-2" on the Rock at WE 30. So, Rock is 6'4", which puts Hogan at 6'5" minimum today. Did you all not notice how Hogan had almost a half foot of height over Warrior at WM30 as well? He is 6'5" now and every thing proves that, he was truly over 6'7" at one time.

Frank, yes Hogan wore cowboy boots but why do you not mention that Hall wore hiking type boots which are within a half an inch of whatever boost the boots give Hogan. Hogan was over an inch taller than the 6'6" Hall back then.
Red183 says on 21/Jul/14

Peak Nash 6´9"-6´9.5", peak Hogan 6´5"-6´5.5"
or metric Nash 206cm, Hogan 196cm

ZERO chance they were taller than that at normal low height like Robs 5´8".
Frank says on 20/Jul/14
Chris, Hogan looked taller than Hall because he had Cowboy boots on when he turned heel !!!
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
Watch Hogan stood next to Nash and Scott Hall in 1996. He's about 2 inches taller than Hall! He's an easy 6'7
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
That Lewis photo is pretty conclusive that Hogan is at least 6'4. He's probably not far off of 6'5

But, seriously, watch photo of Hogan in the early/mid 1990s. He's obviously at least 6'7!
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
Frank -read the article. Hogan lost a lot of height through his back surgeries. But gained some back through further surgery

There probably were photos years ago when he was shorter than 6'4 guys. But he's regained some height since then
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
As for the Lennox Lewis photo, I'd say it's pretty obvious he's at least 6'4 in that photo. If not 6'5

The perspective doesn't make that much different.
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
You need to read the article closer. It's common knowledge Hogan lost a lot of height through back surgery, but has gained some back in the last few years through more surgery

Watch Hogan in the mid 1990s, stood next to guys like Scott Hall. He's definitely at least an inch taller. If not 2 inches. He's not much shorter than Kevin Nash

Hogan was obviously 6'6 or 6'7 in the mid 1990s. He went down to about 6'2 or 6'3. And is now back to 6'4 or 6'5
Chris says on 20/Jul/14
You guys are crazy.

Watch the famous moment when Hogan turns heel in 1996. On Youtube. Hogan TOWERS over Scott Hall.

He's about 2 inches taller! Hogan was at least 6'6 or 6'7 in 1996
Frank says on 18/Jul/14
Giantism, Ive seen more Pictures of Hogan Shorter than 6ft 5 & 6ft 4 men
David Hasselhoff, Troy Aikman both are 6ft4 & taller than Hogan !!! That's a fact or reality as you put it!!! You have a right to disagree Personal I don't care either way its put no money in my pocket if Hogans 6ft 3 or 6ft 5
Crow says on 18/Jul/14
Giantism, you can see Hogan is closer to the camera so looks much more massive than Lennox, but if you look close you can still see Lennox is taller than him Click Here

Really Frank? Explain then how in the picture on this link Hogan is slightly taller than Lennox! This was in 2007 before he had his major back surgery restoring height. He was 6'5" or more here, not at his peak. Time to start seeing things the way they are and not how you wish it was. As for the 6'8.5" guy who said Hogan was 6'4", did you measure him as he walked by? I am sure he was an inch taller which would be hard to determine being a few inches taller. Click Here
RP says on 17/Jul/14
Rob, I truly think Hulk Hogan needs updated. Peak Height: 6'5.5" & current height: 6'3.5"
RP says on 15/Jul/14
Fellas, everyone needs to google/YouTube Tom Lister, JR's (Zeus) interview with Rosenberg. He is open & honest with all his answers. A total no BS interview. He states that in real life, me & Hulk Hogan are both 6'5"...but, I wore big boots that made me 6'7". He said that back then Hulk Hogan was 300 lbs. He said that when he went and auditioned for the role of Zeus in No Holds Barred that he weighed 287 lbs. And that the WWF/WWE took him & trained him for almost 3 months & bulked him up to 305 lbs. He also states that when he met Andre The Giant in 1989 that Andre was 7'1" & 505 lbs. I'm assuming that's 7'1" in footwear/boots. A great & eye opening interview tho.
Frank says on 15/Jul/14
Dicksock he was right in front of me !!! I have been posting on here for years now & took pictures with some Wrestlers Bulldog was no 5ft 10 in street clothes
Maybe in Ringear with Lifts !!!
Graham says on 13/Jul/14
I had both Hulk Hogan and Sting walk right in from of me at a TNA even 2 years ago as they were going around high diving crowd members, I was measured by the US Navy 3 times, all we're 80.5 inches,looking down at Hogan, I would say a solid 6'4", and Sting about 6'2". It ruined my childhood in a way, as I was a fan of both, and on TV, they both looked huge. I'm not skinny either, I weigh an even 300lbs.
dicksock says on 12/Jul/14
Hogan is 6'3"-6'4" now and was 6'5"-6'6" in his prime. I am 100% sure of this. The British Bulldog was at least a solid 5'10", and probably 5'11", despite what Frank says.
RP says on 11/Jul/14
Frank, he hasn't been 6'5" since about 1994. About the time he hit 40 years old he started slowly losing height. In his prime he was 6'5.5" to 6'5.75". He is now 6'3.5" to 6'3.75". Be careful when looking at pics of him looking only 6'3" flat...due to the fact that He has a horrible habit of always slightly slouching & leaning to one side of his body, due to his knee & hip replacements. This standing posture will cause you to lose at least a 0.5" inch. When Terry "Hulk" stands up good & straight he is at least 6'3.5" to 6'3.75". And when he stands up military style with his stomach sucked in, he truly does appear to be a solid 6'4" at times. Especially after his last back correction surgery last year.
Frank says on 10/Jul/14
How is Hogan 6ft 5 when he shorter than 6ft 4 men like Troy Aikman ??
He was Shorter than Lennox Lewis who is 6ft 5 but atleast 2 inches
Snoop Dog looked taller than Hogan and I don't know how tall he is
RP says on 9/Jul/14
Barefoot Sheamus is 6'3"...that lad just wears some very thick soled boots in the ring. Some of the thickest in the business. Sheamus 6'3"...Current Hogan 6'3.75" to 6'3.5"
Giantism says on 9/Jul/14
Why are you debating Bulldogs height on Hogans page? Lol. I was at the gym today and met Alberto Del Rio, he had normal runners on and was minimum 6'4", he is a really tall guy and had a lot of height on everyone there. Tonight he wrestled Shams (I was at the smackdown show) and he was an inch or more shorter than Shamus, but Shamus had much thicker boots on. So, point being simply that Hogan was taller than Shamus this year, and Shamus is minimum 6'4" barefoot like Del Rio. Hogan is still 6'5" or just under.
womble says on 7/Jul/14
After seeing a pic of Hogan and the rock with stone cold backstage i think hogan is under 6'3". All pro-wrestlers height and weights are make believe, take it from someone who used to be in the business.
Frank says on 7/Jul/14
I know what 5ft 10 looks like when someone is 2 feet from me believe me he was about 5ft 9 Jim The Anvil Neidhart might have been closer to 5 ft 10 I met him and spoke with him he was shorter than me
Red183 says on 4/Jul/14
Frank says on 30/Jun/14
...but he was no 5ft 10 for sure in street clothes

So you measured him standing straight?

I think visitor Robbie met him to and saw about 5´10.5" if I remember right
Frank says on 30/Jun/14
He was right next to me I was a good amount taller and im 5ft 11ish Maybe he wears lifts in his ring boots but he was no 5ft 10 for sure in street clothes
RP says on 29/Jun/14
Frank, British Bulldog Dynamite Kid was 5'9"...Not Davey Boy Smith...he was 5'10.5" to 5'11"...I'm now going with 5'11"
RP says on 29/Jun/14
Ok, after looking closer at British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith in & out of the ring...in wrestling boots, cowboy boots & then finally regular sneakers...I'm giving a prime height of 5'11" even." Peak " Savage was 6'0.25" to 6'0.5" without question!
RP says on 28/Jun/14
Davey Boy Smith aka Bulldog was 5'10.5" barefoot.
RP says on 27/Jun/14
LOL! Red, pic the video where Savage isn't capable of standing up straight do to having to act out his knee injury.
Frank says on 27/Jun/14
I seen Bulldog in street clothes up close he looked about 5ft 9 @ best!!
Red183 says on 24/Jun/14
Bulldog was clearly not in lifts in ring gear, anyone with a bit knowledge about lifts can see that.

Here´re Bulldog and Macho Man next to 5´7.25" (171cm) Carsten Schaefer in 1992

Click Here

Macho was a weak 6-footer peak and a weak 5´11" during his last years.

Randy was 6'0.5" in his prime. Look at all the 80's footage. Tons of videos of him with Hogan, Warrior, Vince, Jesse Ventura, Tito Santana, Brett Hart, Ted Debiase, Ricky Steamboat, Curt Henning, Honky Tonk Man, Junk Yard Dog etc...all video & pics from the 80's show him looking 6'1"ish with all these men. He was 6'0.5" peak/physical prime! At the end of his career 5'11.75" in his late 40's & 50.
Vegas says on 16/Jun/14
from memory savage looked around same height as bret, shawn, flair and guys of that ilk. 6'1 would suggest he was curt hennigs height which he didn't look next to crush (brian adams), dennis rodman or sid.

savage looked right around the same height as marc mero about 10 years ago in a photo and mero has stated "I'm a little over 5'10" in an interview.
Red183 says on 16/Jun/14
I think Savage was more like 5´11.5"-6´0" peak.

Didn´t look any taller than Bret Hart and even struggled to look taller than 5´10.5" British Bulldog early nineties.
RP says on 15/Jun/14
Randy Poffo was listed at 6'1" & 195 lbs his last season in minor league baseball. Randy was 6'0.5" barefoot in his prime. Eventually bulked up to 230 lbs with heavy weight training & steroids by his early 30's. at the age of 49 bulked up to a legit 239 lbs for the role of Bone Saw in Spider Man. During his prime years in wrestling was a legit 225-232 lbs
Chris says on 15/Jun/14
Or look at some WCW videos from the early 1990s - he's at least an inch taller than Scott Hall and maybe 3 inches shorter than Kevin Nash
Chris says on 15/Jun/14
If you want to see how much he has shrunk, look at pictures of him with Stallone now. There are plenty about.

He maybe has 4 inches on Stallone now. It was about 8-10 in Rocky 3
Chris says on 15/Jun/14
If you want to end this debate, watch Suburban Commando.

Various scenes where he is standing next to Christopher Lloyd (who is a tall guy - about 6 foot). The top of Christopher Lloyd's head is level with Hogan's shoulder!

He's at least 7 or 8 inches taller than Christopher Lloyd in that movie.

There's little evidence to suggest Hogan WASN'T 6'7 or 6'8 back then. He towers over 6 footers
Chris says on 15/Jun/14
A bit complicated but.......watch Sylvester Stalone in "Escape to Victory" - a film from the early 1980s. It's a movie about soccer, starring lots of actual soccer players of the 1970s.

He stands next to Pele, who is exactly, medically measured, as being 5'8. Official sports measurements. Stallone is quite a bit taller. Easily 5'10

Now see Hogan stand next to Stallone in Rocky 3, which is filmed 2 years later!

He is almost a foot taller. Even taking into account shoe-stacks, he's at least 6'7 or 6'8

You guys spend too much time debating. He probably was 6'7 at his prime.
RP says on 13/Jun/14
Randy Savage aka Randal Mario Poffo played Minor League Baseball for 4 seasons 1971,'72, '73 & '74 up until age 22. He was listed at 6'1" & 195 lbs. His "barefoot" height was 6'0.5". With the help of steroids & heavy weight training, Randy eventfully built himself up to a muscular 230 lbs by the time he turned 30 in 1982. He was between 220 to 235 lbs during his 25 years of pro wrestling. He weighed 239 lbs when he filmed the Spider Man Movie as the Character Bone Saw @ the age of 49.

Rob, how tall was Macho Man at peak?

_____________

I would guess at least 6', possibly 6'1". I think he was 5'11" in the last ten years of his life though.
mike says on 10/Jun/14
Rob, how tall was Macho Man at peak?
Ian C. says on 8/Jun/14
The taller you are, the easier it is to exaggerate your height to people who are shorter. I'm six foot four, and average-sized people who have just met me will guess my height at six foot six. On the other hand, people who are about six foot one or two will typically guess that I am six foot three. A man who really is six foot six can add a couple of imaginary inches and few will doubt him, because he just seems huge compared to most people.
Marcus Hickman says on 3/Jun/14
Hulk Hogan and Charles Barkley are 6' 6" in gym shoes, at least Hogan was in his prime.
They were 6' 5" peak.
Stone says on 1/Jun/14
I see this continues on Hulk Hogan stood 6'5" in his prime and that's a fact , to continue to say he was anything more is just plain wrong
ExTrA says on 31/May/14
