    I'd say he's around 5'9-5'10, in reality. WWE.com lists him at 5'11. But WWE is know to exaggerrate heights as well as a superstar's weight. But I'm sure some are correct. As to if Benoit wears lifts in his boots, the only one I am sure of is Jericho, and he may not even use them anymore.

    Well, jay will probably say he's about 5'4, but I say he's 5'9. I measure all guys around that height on the Taz standard, in which I know for a fact that he's 5'8 and 3/4...

    Well yeah, but they're not four inch lifts... I'd put Jericho at about 5'10.

    Benoit appeared to be about 5'9'' when I saw him, whether he was wearing lifts or not I do not know.

    I met him in person at an airport, I am 5'8" and he did not look any taller than I am. We were both in shoes, but the ones I had on do not do anything for my height.

    Chris is THICK in person. TV and pictures do not do the build these dudes have any justice.

    Also I met Triple H once, and my brother, Jason, who is 6'4" was with me when I met triple H. Jason also used to compete in powerlifting, and he is pretty thick too.

    We knew right then and there that HHH was not any more than 6'2", but he is also built like a brick **** house, but is no where close to 285 lbs.

    Based on those two I think it is safe to asume that MOST Pro wrestlers stats are padded by about 2 inches, and around 20 lbs.

    Some may not be exagerated much, but others you can easily tell are padded a lot.

    For example, WWE claimed Goldberg was 6'4" and 285. I have heard other sources say 6'3" and 260. How can you tell he is the smaller stats? Compare him to Lou Ferrigno in --Pumping Iron--, Lou Was 6'4.5" and 268 lbs. on contest day, and there is no way that Goldberg was even close to that build. Granted he was not lean as Lou, but you can tell, he has no where near that amount of muscle, same with triple H.

    Batista is the only guy close to the size that Lou was and he is billed at 6'6" and 317 lbs. ? You got to be kdding me. Batista is no taller than 6'5", and cannot be any heavier than 275,and I know that 317 or whatever is complete bunk.

    All pro wrestler stats are exagerated. Not that they are little dudes by any means, just not as big as they say. hyptheticly if you are a legit 6'6", and 300 lbs., then over night you will become at least 6'8" 325, they might even push their luck for 6'9"and 340.

    To make that dud look as big as he is, then you need a 5'8" guy to be billed as 5'11" to make the other dude seem even bigger. Since the giants have to grow, so does every one else.

    Forget the numbers they hand out. Most of them do not mean anything these days any way.

    well whatever WWE say he is, just knock 1 or 2 inches off, cause most wrestlers have 2 inches of padding in there boots that make em taller, why do you think Big Show only says hes 7 foot, were as WWE claim hes 7'2, and before Brock Lesnar left they said he was 6'4 but for the brief time he was on the Minnesota Vikings website it said he was 6'2.

    so im guessing it will be same for most wrestlers

    so im guessing it will be same for most wrestlers
    Big Show 7 foot? Pigs might fly lol. Even 7'0'' is a crock - he'd be lucky to be 6'8'' ( seen him up close ). A basic rule of thumb is the bigger the wrestler the bigger the exaggeration.

    Kevin Nash was billed as 7ft alot of the time, he was on a kids tv program a few years back, he admitted he was actually about 6'9 and that anything from 20-40lbs can be added to a wrestlers weight.

    Or 100lbs for the super heavyweights. Vader, for example, was billed as 450lbs when he was really 350lbs. WWE throws 100lbs on to Big Show's real weight, too. With such enormous men you can convincingly make such exaggerations ( at least to the tv audience ).

    Hogan in his books says Big Show is a 7 feet too.

    He's not unless he's shrunk 4 - 5 inches. Hogan also claims he ( Hogan ) used to be 340 in his book lol. I expected Big Show to be 6'11'' but he wasn't up in that height range. I jokingly said to the bloke next to me after Big Show walked past us ( was at a show ) he's not 7'0'' is he? Guy just laughed and said no. It was obvious he wasn't even close.

    340, thats a joke, he also claimed 24" arms, again you only have to compare him to Lou Ferrigno, supposedly the same height but bigger and heavier than Lou in the 70's, I don't think so.
    Some people are gullable enough to believe wrestlers stats though.
    I saw wcw show live a few years ago and couldn't get over just how much shorter all the wrestlers were than claimed it was pretty funny.

    well after you have a spinal fusion, you tend to want to build up your neck a bit lol.

    If you refer to a fighter who you've never met in real life as "my boy" as though their performance somehow reflects well on you for simply being a fan, you're a lame ass.

    True, but I think he always had a huge neck. Prolly genetic - some people just tend towards having a big neck. It helps to have a big neck in wrestling; so you've got something to fall on, & it sure doesn't hurt as far as looking the part goes ...
