Top 10 tallest WWE Wrestlers in History

WWE has showcased numerous wrestlers of considerable height, yet as per SportyTell, these individuals stand as the tallest in the annals of wrestling history.

1. Giant Gonzalez 8 feet 0 inches

Jorge González, also known as Giant González, was a professional wrestler who measured a colossal 8’0″ in height.

Recognized as the tallest and the only 8-footer wrester in the history of WWE.

Additionally, he was born in Argentina in 1966 and began his career in basketball before switching to wrestling in the late 1980s.

He arrived in the United States in 1990 and immediately caught attention with his massive size and dominant presence.

González’s most unforgettable moment in WWE was at WrestleMania IX in 1993, when he challenged The Undertaker.

The match was hyped as a battle of giants, with The Undertaker being 6’10” and González looming over him.

González did not win the match, despite his height advantage, but he is still one of the most legendary tallest wrestlers in WWE history.

2. André the Giant: 7 feet 4 inches

André Rene Roussimoff, known as André the Giant, was one of the tallest wrestlers ever in WWE.

Born in France in 1946, he stood an incredible 7 feet 4 inches tall and weighed over 500 pounds.

His immense size made him perfect for wrestling, and he became a huge star in the 1970s and 1980s.

One of his most famous moments was at WrestleMania III in 1987, where he fought Hulk Hogan in front of over 93,000 fans.

This match is still remembered as one of WWE’s greatest moments.

Throughout his career, André became a wrestling icon, earning him the nickname “The Eighth Wonder of the World” due to his enormous stature.

3. Omos – 7 feet 3 inches

Omos is one of the tallest wrestlers ever in WWE, and he’s also the tallest on the WWE roster currently.

The former Raw Tag Team Champion is a monster of a man, and it’s not surprising that WWE has big plans for him, given his size.

Omos is so huge that photos appeared online of Omos appearing taller than AJ Styles, even when AJ was in the center of the ring, and Omos was outside.

At WrestleMania 38, Omos towered over Bobby Lashley, and that’s impressive, considering the former WWE Champion is one of the biggest members of the active WWE roster.

4. Paulo da Silva 7 feet 2 inches

Paulo Cesar da Silva, a former Brazilian basketball player, is often overlooked despite his towering height of 7 feet 2 inches.

In WWE, he was known as Giant Silva and was part of the Oddities team.

However, he mainly ended up on the losing side of matches, whether in handicap or tag team scenarios.

Sadly, his time in WWE was brief, and he didn’t leave as much of a lasting impression as other big names of his era.

5. The Great Khali – 7 feet 1 inch

The Great Khali, also known as Dalip Singh Rana, is one of the tallest WWE wrestlers ever.

The Indian star stands at 7ft. 1 inch, and his enormous size helped him win the World Heavyweight Championship in 2007.

6. Jackson Andrews – 7 feet 1 inch

Jackson Andrews was part of FCW from 2009 to 2011, and his huge size was his main strength.

However, he was very stiff and wasn’t very agile in the ring. He was let go from WWE in 2010.

Sadly, Jackson is more known for domestic abuse involving Rosa Mendes (WWE Diva) than anything he achieved in the ring.

7. Big Cass- 7 feet 0 inch

William Morrisey aka Big Cass is from Queens, New York, and measures 7 ft. in height.

Big Cass came to WWE via the NXT system and made his main roster debut in 2016 with Amore. He rose to fame in WWE because of his huge stature.

Cass began vying for the universal title five months after joining the main roster.

8. Big Show – 7 feet

Paul Donald Wight, also recognized as the Big Show, stands out as one of WWE’s tallest competitors.

While widely celebrated as one of the world’s most prominent athletes, this 7-foot WWE wrestler holds a record in the  history of tallest wrestlers.

Big Show’s towering height and immense size have contributed significantly to his widespread fame.

9. Kane – 7 feet

Glenn Thomas Jacobs, also recognized as Kane, is both a professional wrestler and a politician from America.

Within the wrestling community, he’s dubbed the Big Red Machine due to his imposing build.

Kane ranks among the tallest WWE wrestlers, towering at 7 feet in height.

10. Uncle Elmer – 7’ feet

He leaned more towards a persona than a genuine wrestler, and his towering height played into his character’s persona.

Uncle Elmer, standing at 7 feet tall and weighing 475 pounds, only spent two years in wrestling before retiring due to declining physical health.

Additionally, he remains largely overlooked among the tallest WWE wrestlers, as he didn’t achieve notable success in the sport.

Conclusion

WWE has seen many super tall wrestlers who’ve left a big impact. From old legends like André the Giant to today’s giants like Omos, they’ve all wowed fans with their size.

While some have achieved championship glory and etched their names into wrestling history, others have remained in the shadows, their contributions often forgotten.

Yet, collectively, they have all played a crucial role in shaping the landscape of WWE, reminding us that in this world of larger-than-life characters, size truly does matter.

As we continue to witness the evolution of the sport, one thing remains certain: the legacy of the tallest WWE wrestlers will forever stand tall in the annals of sports entertainment.
