Well, that's what the dude in OO's Smackdown Spoilers said:



The Big Show is NOT 7 feet tall. He might be 6-6, 6-7, but not much more. I had floor seats and was close to the aisle, so I got a good look at him 10 feet away. I've stood next to Zdyrunas Ilgauskas, who's 7-3, and Jim Chones, a former NBA player who's 7-foot, and the Big Show is nowhere near as tall as they are. Don't get me wrong, he's every bit of 400 pounds.



Funny - I seem to recall him being noticeably taller than Kevin Nash and Nash is 6'11". And I'm sure Paul doesn't use "Jericho Lifts".

HEy, Vampiro took part in an indy shoiw I attended this week. I was in the front row, and upon making his entrance Vampiro stood right next to my brother. Now my brother is about 6 feet and he seemed just as tall if not taller than vampiro. What height is Vampiro listed as???

I think that the weigh probably makes him look shorter than he is. Skinny guys generally look taller than they are.

Also, Show tends to kind of slouch which might have something to do with it.

"Guess the wrestler's real height" is always a fun game The best way to tell is when they stand next to someone who's height you know. I figured out Hogan is nowhere near 6'6" when he stood next to Dennis Rodman.

Moe: Guess the wrestler's real weight is even more fun than guessing the height. Especially since the WWF gives everyone the 20 lb. curve or so.

When i was at a ppv a few months back show looked huge. I dont remember who he was wrestling (it was a tag team match) but i just remember remarking on how big the guy is. I'll have to look that up and find out who he wrestled.

All I know is that even though he is the best wrestler on God's green earth, Chris Benoit is ridiculously short in person. I'm 6'2" or so, and I had a good 5-6" on him. Though I will also say he might be the thickest guy who's not a pro bodybuilder I've ever met.

His booking sheet here in Memphis listed him as 7'2". He is a large man. He also cooperated nicely and caused no problems during his arrest. It was a very minor misdemeanor arrest and all charges were dismissed to the best of my knowledge. And that's all I'll say about that, except that he was still The Giant when it happened and was quite a bit lighter.

Goddamn - Paul "No Gimmicks Needed (remember that t-shirt?)" Wight is A LOT taller than 6'6". I'M 6'6" and he is AT LEAST 4 or 5 inches taller than me. The Man is a beast - even if he IS a waste of talent. And he's pretty hilarious too.


Love,
