    This is a something that’s always fascinated me about wrestling, the fact that many wrestlers are often billed far in excess of their real heights.

    For fun, I’ve drawn up a list of some of the biggest grapplers in wrestling to date and have detailed their billed heights as well as (in brackets) saying what I think their most likely true height is / was in my opinion.

    Here goes…………….

    MARTIN RUANE (AKA Giant Haystacks, Loch Ness and the Loch Ness Monster)- Billed as 6 foot 7 inches tall in the late 1960s but from the 1970s onwards consistently introduced as standing 6 foot 11 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 5 inches).

    SHIRLEY CRABTREE (AKA Big Daddy) – The wrestling TV favourite was billed as standing 6 foot 3 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 5 foot 11.5 inches to 6 foot tall)

    PAT ROACH (AKA ‘Bomber’ Pat Roach) – Billed as 6 foot 5 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 4.5 inches tall).

    BIG BRUNO ELRINGTON – The portsmouth man was billed as standing 6 foot 5 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 2 inches)

    THE MIGHTY JOHN QUINN – The Canadian star was billed as 6 foot 5 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot)

    Tony St Clair – Billed height = 6 foot 2 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot)

    BIG SHOW / THE GIANT – Generally billed as standing 7 foot 1 inches tall although has been billed as high as 7 foot 4 inches on occasion.
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 10.5 inches to 6 foot 11 inches tall).

    ANDRE THE GIANT – Billed as 7 foot 4 inches
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 11 inches)

    THE UNDERTAKER – Billed as 6 foot 10 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 6 inches)

    SID EUDY (AKA Sid Justice / Sid Vicious) – Billed anywhere between 6 foot 9 inches and 7 feet tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 6.5 inches)

    GIANT GONZALES – Billed as 7 foot 6 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 7 foot 6 inches)

    KANE – Billed as 7 foot tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 6 inches)

    KEVIN NASH – Billed as 6 foot 9 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 6 foot 7.5 inches to 6 foot 8 inches tall).

    THE GREAT KHALI – Billed as 7 foot 1 inches tall
    (Most likely true height IMO = 7 foot 1 inches tall).

    All just based on my personal opinion.

    Anyone like to agree / disagree.
