Hulk Hogan's Real Height

"I woke up and realized life is great and people are awesome and life is worth living."

~ Hulk Hogan

American pro-wrestling legend, Hulk Hogan is one of the most recognized and popular wrestling stars in the world, working non-stop since times unknown.

There are things about Hulk Hogan that no one seems to know about -- like just how old Hulk Hogan exactly is? Hulk Hogan looked old right from the start of his career for reasons best left unmentioned here.

Joking aside, people are even more curious about Hulkster's real height. Hulk Hogan looked very tall in the 80s and 90s but he stopped looking tall later. Why is that so?

We believe Hulk Hogan lost a tremendous amount of height. Height loss happens with the best of us -- with age or with physical conditions, like bad posture -- hunching upper back or dehydration and compression of the spinal discs.

It is just that some people seem more prone to height loss than others. Taller people especially lose more height with age than the shorter ones.

Hulk Hogan was super tall in his youth -- there is no doubt about that. He had mentioned his height as 6-feet-7 inches in his prime and he really looked close to it -- (he towered over a 5-fee-9 inches tall Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III) -- which is surprising since everything is larger than life (overblown) in the world of professional wrestling.

Though as we mentioned already, Hulk Hogan has lost tons of height and now looks similar in stature to people like The Rock (6'3" in his prime), rather than someone like The Undertaker (6'8" to 6'6") -- who has also lost height but just not as much as Hulk Hogan.

Hulk Hogan's weight has been around 300 lb (136 kg) most of his career.

Anyway, we have heard that Chris Hemsworth is going to play Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic. Honestly, Chris looks nothing like Hulk Hogan -- who was a lot taller, a lot meaner, bug-eyed monster in his heydays, who could have made even a bulked-up Chris Hemsworth look like a kid in front of him.

The height of Hulk Hogan is

6'3" or 190 cm

Height in prime was 6'6"
