Originally billed at 7ft 3 but with an actual
height of 7ft 1, The Great Khali made his debut in the WWE when he attacked The Undertaker
during his match with Mark Henry. He then made his in-ring debut when he defeated Funaki.
This was no wrestling match… this was literal murder… Throughout his 8-year stay in the
WWE, Khali only won one title which was the World Heavyweight Championship. Don’t forget
he also won a slammy for “Damn! Moment of the Year!” for his Khali kiss cams… Yeah
that was a thing! It’s a shame that he went from being a once dominant giant to doing
stuff like this… Referred to as the forgotten big man by the
WWE themselves, Giant Silva was a giant of a man standing at a real height of 7ft 2.
He wrestled for the WWF in 1997 and was the resident muscle of the stable, The Oddities.
The Brazilian giant only had a short tenure in the WWF mostly competing on the losing
end of tag team and handicap matches. After his brief stint in the WWF, Giant Silva would
go on to transition into MMA as well as wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling which even saw
him clash with The Great Khali! I’m sure Vince McMahon was watching that match and
loving every second of it. It probably went a little something like this… Jordan Omogbehin is the WWE’s newest giant
in town. Standing at an impressive 7ft 3in tall (which is his real height by the way),
this makes him the 3rd tallest competitor in WWE history! But, a lot of you may have
not heard of Jordan and that’s because he’s been training at the WWE Performance Center.
Jordan made his in-ring debut at an NXT house show last month where he squashed 3.0 in a
2-on-1 handicap match. It will be interesting to see how the WWE will use this giant of
a man on the main roster. The most famous giant to ever compete in the
squared circle was that of Andre The Giant. Prior to his world-famous match with Hulk
Hogan at WrestleMania 3, Andre had not been defeated in the 15 years he competed in the
WWF. Andre was a gentle giant but if there was one thing you did not do with Andre, that
was tell him what to do… When it comes to Andre’s height, it’s difficult to verify
his exact height due to a lot of conflicting sources. His official website lists him as
7ft 4 but other sources claim he was just over 7ft tall especially comparing him next
to the 7ft 1 Wilt Chamberlain. It’s quite possible that he was 7ft 4 in his peak but
bad posture as well the effects of acromegaly took a toll on his health as well as his height. Probably the most intimidating giant to ever
step foot in a WWE ring was that of the Giant Gonzalez. He was best remembered for his epic
showdown against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 9 which was The Undertaker’s only WrestleMania
win by disqualification. Giant Gonzalez was a truly terrifying giant who struck fear into
anyone in his path and to those who disturbed him… Giant Gonzalez came out to the ring
wearing a full furry body suit and was announced standing at 8 feet tall which was a large
exaggeration on the WWE’s behalf. In reality, he stood at around the 7ft 7 mark which even
so, makes him the tallest ever WWE wrestler still to this day.
