@bazza I can 100% accurately say he is above 6'3" today barefoot. I'm 6'3" and in my reefs which are flip flops in the U.S. if your not from here I'm 6'4" maybe a shade over because they have a bottle opener on the bottom meaning a hard sole I was shorter than him. He had on quick silver thin soled flip flops maybe giving 3/4". He is no less than 6'3.5" to 6'4" now. He had me by 3/4" to 1" so possibly 1" barefoot. With that observation I would say 6'4" on the money. I'm a deputy sheriff in Jacksonville FL and we were in Tampa training on a tactical swat team and he was at the shooting range we were training at. We have pictures with him and one of our guys who is 6'5" took a pic with him and there wasn't much of a gap with Jon (my team member) a shade taller.

@Danimal

I don't dispute Hogan has lost a fair bit through the surgeries, that said that Maybe he once did hit around 6' 5" mark.

Whatever, i think we can all agree he is a bit under his 6' 3" listing on here though as it stands today.

there is no way he could have lost more than a couple of inches even with the injuries and age. I would go with people saying 6' 4" ish peak (wearing huge lifts in the ring to appear taller) and now stands around 6' 2" at best, the evidence is there for all to see.

The sheer ignorance of this post MADE ME have to post here after a long time of not having posted on Hogans page. Hogan stood somewhere between 6'5" and 6'6" at his peak. He has lost tremendous height, not due to only age and injuries, but due to MULTIPLE height SHORTENING SURGERIES (neck fusion, fused discs in his spinal chord shortening his upper torso, hip replacements leaving him with a shorter femur and hips, knee replacements, etc, etc, etc. He's around 6'2" today. It wouldn't even surprise me if he's 1/4" under that today. He's lost 3-4" in the last 25-30 years. FACT.

Straightahead I had the picture of me & Vince up on this site years ago Im 5 ft 11.5 and he had about 2 inches on me again he could have been wearing lifts ? Rob can verify
er4smiths said on 27/Mar/17
@bazza - I couldn't agree more. Hulk Hogan is a larger than life figure that people grew up with and we all want him to be tall and large.
It's hard to accept the reality that he was never as tall and large as the WWF portrayed him as in the Kayfabe world of wrestling.
6'4" is very tall and especially with lifted wrestling boots and custom cowboy boots. Even in those lifts and boots he was never taller than people that were legit 6'6"

Sean said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, a lot of comments here believe Hogan was not quite 6'6" peak. Any possibility he was 6'5.5"? That may be a more indicator of his true height.
Editor Rob: Sean, I'd say the lowest I'd try to argue was 6ft 5.5...but I feel there is still enough out there to say he could in his 20's have measured near 6ft 6 flat
RisingForce said on 19/Mar/17
straightahead, that's because Vince was at least an inch taller than Bret until he got old. See the March 21st 1994 interview on YouTube for an example. Nowadays, it's a different story, though. As for Johnny Carson, apparently he claimed 5'10.5", but maybe he claimed 5'11" as well, he wouldn't be the first guy to claim 2 different heights.

Firecracker:
Johnny Carson actually claimed 5'11"...not 5'10"...and comparIng Carson through out the years to other known celeb's heights...he's a pretty much confirmed 5'10.5" peak ...5'10" by the mid 1980's...Hogan does indeed have a 1" footwear advantage over 5'10" to 5'10.5" Carson & legit 6'2" Ed McMahon (who was closer to 6'3" peak)...that being said...once again, peak barefoot Hulk Hogan would come out to be approximately 6'5.5" to 6'5.75" !!!!

young hogan, peak height:Click Here

a 29 y.o. hogan with american television host Johnny Carson. Hogan wears cowboy boots, 2 inches heels. Carson claimed to be 5'10", many had doubts about it. Probably he was 5'9". Anyway, hogan doesn't look a legit 6'5"-6'6". Absolutely. i would say more 6'3"-6'4" max.

Vince McMahon is a good reference in that series of photos as he was still probably near 6'1".

@Jim hopper nice to see someone who is way closer to the truth than most on here. I'd take it a step further myself and say 6'4" peak barefoot
and 6'2" now. The people that say that he's 6'4" now are nuts.

No. 6'5" maybe a tick over is more accurate.
RisingForce said on 13/Mar/17
Hogan had written earlier in his book that Sly was 5'8", which is a much more realistic guess than the silly 5'6" or 7" stuff. They obviously made Hulk taller for Rocky 3 by standing him on a box and using angles as "Thunderlips" was supposed to be an Andre the Giant type nearly 7' tall With Hulk no more than 2" down from his peak at still a good 6'3.5" in 2005, Sly could appear 5'10.5" or 5'11" with him: Click Here Vince McMahon is a good reference in that series of photos as he was still probably near 6'1". Ironically, the shoes Sly is wearing there are called Hogan shoes, a thick sneaker, which Sly liked to put big lifts in. Sly was likely 5'8.75" or a weak 5'9" peak so he and Hulk were not in great positions to pinpoint each other's height as I've long been convinced Hulk was 6'5.5" peak, a good 8.5"+ taller than Stallone at his peak, so nearly a head.

He was a strong 6'5" prime not 6'6. Maybe out of bed and got down to 6'5/6'5 1/4 or 1/8. Today may only be 6'3.

FM: Randy Poffo aka Randy Savage was listed at 6'1" & 195 lbs while playing Minor League Baseball in the 1970's...probably his height in shoes/cleats. Most have said Randy Savage was 6'0" to 6'0.5" during his physical prime. Actually stood in vacinity of him in 1997 at the Charleston Civic Center. He was about 45 years old then. I'm 5'11" barefoot ...I had on 1.75" Skechers Logger boots. He had on what looked to be 2" cowboy boots. He was approximately 20 feet from me...he looked a strong 6'0" to me. Maybe 6'0.5"??? But, too hard to really judge from 20'ft away. He also had that darn big ass cowboy hat on too! Which can give you the appearance of being an inch taller than what you really are.
aaronious said on 5/Mar/17
IN my opinion, Hogan first started loosing height right around 1992, because he started loosing size at that time from coming off the steroids. it is a known fact that heavy lifting and steroids equals height loss when you come off the juice. I have a friend who used to be me height, 6'2", and today he is 6'1", because he stopped juicing. Look at Arnold schwarzenegger, hes easily lost 2 inches. used to be a legit measured 6'1.75", and hes a shade under 6 ft today. Look at Ultimate Warrior, used to be 6'2" in his prime, and when he died, was around 6ft. soemthing happens when they lose all that muscle mass along the spinal column, the discs between your vertebrae get weighed down more, because there is less muscle to support them keep the pressure off, and keep them fully hydrated, so they pancake and flatten over time. and remember, a full 1/3rd of your spinal height is DISC, the other two 3rd is vertebrae. Piper is a prime example of what disc injury, trauma, and age can do to the spin. he was measured at 6'1.5", as a golden gloves boxer when he trained as a late teen under Judo Gene Lebell, and after years of wrestling injury, and having cancer and back surgeries, he was barely 5'9" at the time of his death. You can tell how much Piper's spine shrank because of his distended belly. he was skinny everywhere else except the belly, because his spinal column shrank, creating less space for his internal organs to exist, so they push out his belly.

anyways, just my 2 cents
FM said on 5/Mar/17
Rob, how tall would you say Savage was? DDP said in an interview that he didn't think Savage cracked 6 feet. Most picture of Hogan and Savage, Hogan looks to be heavily slouching down to make them look closer in height.
Editor Rob: I'm sure Hulk did crouch and stand poor with Randy at times, at least from what I've seen it looks that way. 6ft max for Randy? I'm not so sure of that.
Undertaker Frank said on 1/Mar/17
According to Hogan he said Sly was about 5ft 6 to 5ft 7 I heard some people say the he was very short dont forget Sly wears lifts in his shoes to make him appear about 5ft 10

He looked 6'7'' next to Rocky Balboa in Rocky III Sly is 5'9''

There isn't a level street or sidewalk in all of San Fransisco! LOL!!! Yes, Hogan is losing at least 1" to maybe 2" on that street incline.
RR12 said on 18/Feb/17
@firecracker. You do realize that the picture of Hogan and Reigns is on a enclined road with Hogan on the downside of it. Look at the road and the trolley behind them. 6'3.5 to 6'4 is accurate for him no lower that 6'3.5 though.
The Ben said on 17/Feb/17
Firecracker you've picked the worst photos of Hogan ever.
Peak 6'5- 6'6 max seems okay.
Currently 6'3-6'4.
It's obvious when you meet him in person that he's unable to straighten his legs and his body is drastically tilted one way.
If you look at photos of him from even the late 80's doing his double bicep pose you can see his back is already tilting to one side.

Big show looks shorter next to Mabel than giant titan did which certainly rules out him being 7'1 in the 1990s ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************


I disagree with you Vegas, Big Show's head and long torso can give the illusion of looking shorter just like with Andre, if your head is at least 12 to 13 it will appear so.
Baks89 said on 16/Feb/17
Firecracker, Hogan has terrible posture that pic with Roman Reigns. You can even see he knees are bent because he cant straighten them as well. Hogan still 6'3.5 straighten out. So 2.5 inch loss which is believable consider the amount of back and hip surgeries hes had.

well i think guesses on hogan that lies in the range from 6`5 `1/4 - 6`6 1/8 is is pretty fair. i still go with the one in the middle. 197 is what he genereally looked. and i can say he doesnt look taller than me. i think he could have been shorter by 2-3 mm even. today really hard to say with that back and knees. who knows if he measures 2-3 cm taller than he looks. its hard to tell becuase he is like one of the few in the world with a back broken as his. today he looks about 190 but measured i think 191,5
firecracker said on 11/Feb/17
many of you think human body is like a puzzle. you can shrink if you have serious back problems and if you gain a lot of weight (fat) year by year. donald trump is and was in the 6ft range, he is 70 in good shape, he has always had a slim body, and he didn't have any back problem. he didn't shrink, maybe he lost a weak inch, he was max 6'0.75"(185cm), never been taller than that.

trump in his 40ies with an old ronald reagan who struggled with 6ft even when he was young. reagan was never taller than 5'11" in my opinion:Click Here. trump was as tall as an old reagan. no way trump was 6'2"(188cm) barefoot. don't joke.

hogan nowdays with roman reigns who claims to be 6'2"(188cm):Click Here

hogan at his peak with roddy piper (who was in the 6ft range, don't joke even with piper!):Click Here

hogan is as tall as roman reigns. So hogan nowdays is 6'2"(188cm). Hogan had serious back problems of course. how much did he shrink? i think a realistic shrinking can be 2-3 inches. So i think hogan was max 6'4.75"(195cm), peak barefoot. He was tall no doubt. You can't shrink 4-5-6 inches from 20 to 60!!! human body is not a puzzle!!!
Jj said on 10/Feb/17
Looked 1.25 iches taller than Brock a couple of years ago. So 6'3.25 now and 6'5.25 peak seems about right I think. So hard so call because his eye line is often the same as shorter guys but looks like he has quite a long head.

trump is (was) in the 6ft(183cm) range. Hogan looks 6'4-6'5" (193-195cm) with trump. We don't see the ground, probably hogan wears wrestling boots, 2 inches heels. We could say hogan peak barefoot was a full 6'4"(193cm).

nowdays he is in the 6'2" (188cm) range.


Trump was himself 6'2" (188cm) at that time...the man is 70 years old now ffs. Hogan looks as I would have imagined a good 3 inches taller but not quite 4 inches. Leaving him again in the strong 6'5" range. Just like "Tiny" Lister said, the same as 6'9.5"-6'10" Kevin Nash claiming that he could see the top of his head so at least 4.5-4.75 inches taller. Hogan was 6'5" peak. Max 6'5.5".

That pic is from April 1989 at Wrestlemania V.. in 1989 Trump was a legit 6'2" barefoot & 6'3" in shoes !!! Trump was 42 years old in that pic & Hogan was 35 (April 1989) !! Hogan had Trump by exactly 4" there! Hogan was indeed In his standard yellow wrestling boots! My cousin Who I've already named on here in the past, was briefly a professional wrestler & also worked in the WWF/WWE ...he said standard issued wrestling boots, that do not have lifts in them only increase your height by 1.25" Just like basketball sneakers!..not 2"!!! Hogan is right @ 6'7" in wrestling boots there in '89...making him the 6'5.75" to 6'5.5" barefoot that most of us already knew he was up until his late 30's...Again !! Donald Trump was 6'2" peak!! Not 6'0"!!! Hell, he's 6'0.5" to 6'0.75" now at age 70!!!

I agree with you that Hogan wasn't 6'6". 6'4" peak though is just a bit too short. I don't need to analyze any pictures or video, trying to make guesses off how tall another person is supposed to be, or how close they are to the camera, or what shoes they are wearing. Hogan was a legit 6'5" guy

@ sraightahead, another guy I saw in person and talked to briefly was the late great Reggie White. Granted the time between seeing the two was 16 years, but Hulk was definitely much bigger upper body wise than 290lb Reggie and easily the same height.

62B, i think its the other way around! Hogan was in better shape and more muscular in late 70's / early 80's but got bulkier around his belly in mid/late 80's and became heavier, still being billed "only" 297-303.
____________________________-

In 1980, in person, Hogan was slightly taller and much larger muscle wise than my Grandfather who was at the time a little over 6'-4" and in the 280Lb range. I just can't see a peak Hogan under 6'5" and weight wise probably really close to the 300 lb mark. Today from pictures only, to me Hogan looks to be barely 6'3". He may even be under 6'3" by a fraction an inch. I would really like to meet him now as I bet He and I are very close in height.

RP, they looked pretty much the same but if anyone had the edge then it would been Fralic for sure due to his more massive leg muscles (football background) and i guess the same goes for Jimbo Covert, who looked same height as Hogan btw.

Bill Fralic did NOT look heavier than Hulk Hogan in 1986!! Not at all...Hogan look easily 15-20 lbs heavier! They actually looked almost the exact same height! Hogan had a thicker/fatter neck...a thicker/fatter waist & stomach...his overall torso & chest was thicker ...not necessarily wider than Fralic...but, definitely thicker!! And his arms we a lot bigger than Fralic's! Their thighs looked to be about the same size! 1986 Fralic 6'5" & 280-285...1986 Hogan 6'5.5" & 300-305 lbs...no doubt!!' Hogan looked just as heavy and more muscular than 6'4.25" & 302 lbs Jim Covert in 1986 as well !!!

Try late 80's / 1990. He was at his very biggest back then and being billed 297-303, what does that tell you? Legit 6'5 / 280 lbs Bill Fralic looked both taller and more massive than what Hogan ever did, so 275 for Hogan when he was at his biggest seems about right. Before wwf and when he made his debut in 1979, he looked barely 260.

Whats insane is to believe that the biggest star in wwf/e was being billed smaller than he really was...

Hogan may have been more muscular in the late 80's early 90's, but he was for sure bigger in the late 70's early 80's when he as billed in around 330lbs

275lbs peak??? When he was 13? This guy pre wwf alone was 310+. If you want to argue he wasn't a full 6'6 fine but to say that hulk hogan was never more then 275lbs is insane.

For me he was a hair under 6'6 ( 6'6 out of bed) and weighed 305-320 at his peak.
I believe he is 6'2.5 today

@Junior31 and @straightahead

300 lbs is a lot of weight for someone 6'4-6'5" peak. Young Hogan was beefy and muscular on Roids so I wouldn't be surprised
if he was close. The only thing I would say is as we all know, the WWF was notorious for inflating height and weight and they
billed him at 302-320 right? So that leads me to believe @straighahead may be on to something. 275 lbs and muscular does make
for a very large man. I know a personal trainer guy that's 6'2" and very muscular with big arms and quads and only weighs 215 lbs.
I think @Junior31 is spot on with his current height though. 6'2.5" on his best day now. The way he stacks up to John Cena, The Rock,
Troy Aikman, Sly Stallone, Joe Mangerella, David Hasselhoff,and ME are very telling.
I truly do wish we could all bring our resources together in harmony and prove once and for all what he was peak and what is now and then all agree. Is that even possible?
berta said on 3/Feb/17
hm people genereally think he was almost 198 at peak. maybe he was that tall. when over 100 people guess its a proven fact that it will almost everytime be correct. well of course thats not really true but according to the guesses its safe to say he was strong 197 ore weak 198 guy at peak

If Hogan did lose anything by the mid 90's it was 0.25 at best. He might have gone down from 6'5.25 to a flat 6'5 by the time he joined WCW.

He started to look under 6'5 towards the late 90's as that's when he started breaking down physically. He was likely a flat 6'4 by the time of his WWE return in 2002.

230!!! No way. I think your devaluing just how big of a guy he is, was , and structurally is supposed to be. While far from his peak he still has the bone structure of a big man even through joint degeneration and loss. He's nothing below 260 today.

In my opinion he'd lost height by 93, he was completely different person to 5 years earlier.
He'd been running hard on the road wrestling hundreds of times a year.
At 40 I'm not as tall as I was at 20 due to injury, it's easily possible the same would apply to Hogan.

___________________

He didn't have any severe injuries by that point. Plus, he looked identical next to Mean Gene in 1993 as he did in 1983. He looked the same next to Randy Savage and numerous other people as well. I've seen zero proof that he lost height by the mid 90s and lots of proof that he didn't. That fact combined with the fact that most men don't start losing height until their 40s (and even then it's minimal) makes me think that he didn't lose any height. He was never more than a solid 6'5" guy, maybe 6'5.5". He still looked about 6'5" by the time he got to WCW.

Hulk Hogan was billed at 303 lbs because Rocky was billed at 202 lbs and because they wanted to make the difference between him and monster heels seem bigger than it really was.
Here's Hogan billed at 6'8"+ 341 lbs.
Hogan isn't even at his peak size here.
Hogan on Johnny Carson and other peak weight appearances could easily been billed at 375 lbs+.
Click Here
Hogan was WELL over 300 lbs at real peak weight.
He could have been anywhere between 325 and 350 lbs, but I don't know the exact figure.

Hogan was never 350lbs or close to it. He looked low 300's at his peak...maybe 310lbs.

He's WAY over that, when I met I was with a 6'2 out of shape 300lb guy who you wouldn't give a second look at.
Just a regular but not overly big fat guy.
Hogan had a way bigger frame, the length and size of his hands and arms was surprising.
I could see him being anywhere from 260 to 290.
I imagine back in the mid 80's he was an incredible sight.
I know there are much bigger guys today but if you threw a 1988 Hulk Hogan in the WWE today he'd still be the most charismatic guy and I bet the red and yellow along with his size would make him a huge attraction.

No way in the world did he lose any height by 39 (1993). He was in great shape at that point and suffered zero loss in posture or agility. The average man doesn't lose an inch in height until their 80s. Plus, he looked identical in height next to everyone, including Mean Gene. Just like 6'5" Tiny Lister said, "Me and Hulk are both 6'5" in real life." Hogan was a solid 6'5" guy in his prime, may have dipped down to 6'4" by the early 2000s, and is a solid 6'3" now. His weight probably peaked at about 300lbs at various points in his career, and he probably did get down to 230-240lbs by 1994/1995.

___________________________________________--

I wouldn't say its impossible that Hogan hadn't lost any height by 39. I first noticed that I had lost a fraction of an inch in my later 30's. Now at 48 I have lost a little over 1/2".

6'5 to 6'6 maximum barefoot.
Looks to be 2.5" shorter today.
Looked within an inch of Jake Roberts, Hillbilly Jim, Eathquake and Zeus who are all in the 6'5-6'6 range.

I could see him in the early 300lb range at his biggest and I believe he dropped to 235lbs around the time of Mr Nanny in late 92 early 93.
There was an interview with him in impact magazine in 94 that gave the 235lb weight.
He did a few UK TV shows in 93 and looked 6'5-ish.
I would say he really started to lose height in 92.

Coming off steroids will cause you to lose muscle mass, the muscles reduce in size in all ways and as the core, hip and back muscles shrink you can lose a little height, it looks to me by 93 that Hulk was around an inch shorter than 87.

After this his injuries mounted up, as was said earlier his leg drop caused him big problems, Hulk has said this many times.
His back and hips are mess and definitely contributed to height loss.
Meeting him 2015 you could see he had the proportions of a talker man than he was, his hips and lower back looked terrible.
If he can still stand straight I could see him perhaps hitting 6'4.

I will say with his bad posture and odd proportions that it was incredibly difficult to pin his height down.
In the photo I had with him he had 3.5" on me so I have to go with 6'3.5 today.

what the problem with wrestlers is, particularry in the kayfabe era is billings of heights weight and origin on these pages, but in my view people posting on here for wrestlers see the minuim height posted somewhere on the internet and therefore presume they cant be, or ever have been taller than that height, instead of having there own opinon, so because john tenta at 22 was a sumo wrestler and it was published that he was 6'5 and 3/4 it must be true but ernie ladd being published at 6'9 in pro football cant be true because someone else on the web gives him 6'7 so i would say always give your own honest opinion and if posters here agree with you or not thats there choice and t hell with it so my estimation of heights would be these are peaks hogan just about 6'6 sid 6'7.5 taker 6'8 ernie ladd 6'9 kevin nash 6'10 big show 7'1 andre 7'1.5 and now hogan 6'3 sid 6'6 taker 6'6.5 old ladd 6'7 nash 6'9 show 6'10.75 old andre 6'11

RYAN11 and 62B I've been a huge fan of the Matt game since the early 80's - done a ton of reading and research on many many wrestlers. Hogan for many years blamed the leg drop on his hip and back problems but used that to cover up the amount juice he injected into his back side but the leg drop never affected his height - years of body slams, taken to many bumps in the ring and many ops, plus the old steroids which do have a major affect on the body and old age did drop his height. Research Super star Billy Graham the wrestler Hogan wanted to be, Search Dynamite Kid, Ultimate Warrior, Lex Luger, and many others, same thing with those guys.

You make zero sense if you believe body slams and other ring bumps will contribute to Hogans height loss but not his leg drop. I'm sure the steroid abuse also contributed.
Pal said on 26/Jan/17
He has a vacation home near where I grew up, so it is not uncommon to see him around. I walked past him once in a parking lot (flat surface) and he had at least 2 inches on me. I am 6'2.25 (barefoot) and was wearing flip flops so maybe stood 6'2.5 tall at the moment. I would've guess around 6'4 barefoot based off my assessment. He was wearing just regular sneakers. This was two years ago.

62B, the leg drop is why his spine was bent at the bottom like a J, and landing on that and his one hip is why he had to get that replaced. It was all steroids?? What a joke when someone comments on something they have no knowledge and do e zero research on. You can look up pictures of his spine and the extensive damage before his major surgery that corrected most of it and restored some height as well. Oh and also, he had a lot of bone removed from his knee, hip joints as well as from his back. Normally a man that tall and weight would drop an inch or two by his 60's, Hogan is 3-4 inches below his peak height of over 6'7", and is now around 6'4" or a bit more if he cares to stand up straight.

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.
RYAN11 said on 12/Jan/17
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.

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)

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.

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)

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.

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'd guess Jake Roberts was legit 6'5 peak

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

hate these heightliers, LOL, hate real deep hate serious :(

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.

He does look 6ft7 w/h Jake Roberts. Don't know about the shoes though...

______________

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.
Mayfield said on 21/Dec/16
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

Hogan looked 6-7" taller, thus making him 6'5"-6'6" in 1979.

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.
RP said on 12/Dec/16

Sorry, But Fralic certainly does not look any bigger than Hogan even in that picture, which happens to be the picture that Fraclic looks his biggest with Studd. All the other pictures of the two together Fralic looks smaller. Hogan was frequently billed at 320lbs or over in the late 70's early 80's.

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 was "billed" as nearly 7' and 390 lbs in Rocky III. But as Tiny Lister said, he and Hulk were really both 6'5" 300 lbs.

Straightahead, I just don't see what you see. Hogan was not fatter in the late 80's than he was in the late 70's early 80's when they were billing him 320lbs plus. I have not seen one picture that makes me believe Fralic was overall as big as Hogan either. 6'5" to 6'5.5" and about 300lb is good for a peak Hogan

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. CanΒ΄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.
Ryan11 said on 6/Dec/16
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

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:

_________________________________________

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

Absolutely no question Hulkamania was the single, most defining, best thing to ever happen to pro wrestling. Hogan was the right guy at the right time, and as great as the guys you mentioned are, or were, timing is everything.

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".

Thats also an interesting show you linked dicksock, Dwayne Johnson also appeared on it apparently in 08' and he looks the same next to her as Hogan.

So Hogan was the same height as Peak "The Rock" in 08'.
Johan said on 25/Nov/16
Hogan's arms were measured on live TV at 24 inches ( peak ofc). I remember that Vince Mcmahon was the host at the time.
David Banner said on 24/Nov/16
@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".

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".

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.

I met Shawn Michaels in a bar back in the late 80's. He looked around 6'1" in the cowboy boots he was wearing, so his barefoot height was probably around 5'11'", and Hart always looked about an inch taller to me, but I've also heard that Brett wore lifts

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I think 6ft6 is fair and may very have seen 6ft7 straight out of bed

Check this out, in this case, with what David talks about, perhaps 6'7 could be argued for Hogan at his peak

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.

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.

I find it hard to give him a 6'6 peak. Never gave a true 6'6 impression next to guys like the Undertaker ('90/'91 era). In fact, Jake Roberts gave a much taller impression than Hulk against the deadman.Can't remember too many people, Hogan had towered over in his career.

Roberts wore Kanestyle bigboots with Taker...

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.

Bossmann looked taller during his first WWF run, maybe he lost a bit height.

OK, this is confusing, in places, Traylor looks like he has an edge on DiBiase, so make of that what you will

___________

I think he was 6'4". He looked too tall next to everybody to just be 6'3".
RP said on 1/Oct/16
Yes, Mayfield...Big Boss Man was 6'3"...met him face to face in 1999...I can confirm this....he possibly could have pulled off 6'3.5" MAX! Maybe? But..in 1999 his height was 6'3"...possibly just a fraction over πŸ‘πŸ»

Come to look at it again, Traylor is definitely a good candidate for a 6'3 ranger

What do you think about Ray Traylor AKA Big Bossman? Looked close to Hogan back in the day, at least a firm 6'5

____________

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".
straightahead said on 24/Sep/16
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.
RP said on 24/Sep/16
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.

Peak Hogan: 6'5.5" to 6'5.75"
Peak Hall: 6'5" to 6'5.25"
Current Hogan: 6'3" to 6'3.5"
Current Hall: 6'3.75" to 6'4"


Not bad, agree with current height,
peak I see them a bit lower:

Peak Hogan: 6'5.25" to 6'5.5"
Peak Hall: 6'4.5" to 6'4.75"

I'd give DDP a fraction under 6ft4 AT WORST today and Hall a fraction over....peak about 6ft5.
James B said on 20/Sep/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
Hall is still at least 6ft4 today. He edges out DDP (whose also 6ft4 and who Rob met). 6ft5 range peak is likely


I'd say Scott Hall prime was 6'4.75 and as for DDP today he is 6'3 1/2.

I only have been measured in shoes on a check up at the DR. Typically they measure you during a physical but naked or in a hospital gown.

I think this is pretty much spot on.
