The 10 tallest WWE Superstars in history - no room for The Undertaker

WWE stars

To make it in WWE, on the whole, you’ve got to be pretty young, pretty tall, pretty ripped, and pretty good looking.

This week, we published an article looking at the 15 heaviest wrestlers in WWE history, which you can check out by clicking here, with the likes of Big Show, Yokozuna and Omos included.

So, off the back of that, we’ve decided to list the ten tallest wrestlers in WWE history, which perhaps most surprisingly, doesn’t feature The Undertaker.

Without wanting to waste any more of your time, let’s jump right into looking at the ten tallest wrestlers to have ever stepped foot in a WWE ring.

10. Kevin Nash – 6ft 11″

Kevin Nash is not only one of the tallest men to win the WWE Championship, but also one of the tallest men to ever step inside a WWE ring.

Standing at 6ft 11″, Nash was one of WWE’s biggest stars in the 1990s, before jumping ship to WCW in 1996.

Nash, alongside Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan, formed the nWo, one of the most popular wrestling acts in history.

Nash didn’t shy away from using his height to his advantage, but it was also his huge frame that lead to him picking up some injuries throughout his career.

9. Kane – 7ft

Kane is so tall that, despite being 7ft, he isn’t even in the top eight tallest wrestlers in WWE history.

The former WWE Champion is a couple of inches taller than his storyline brother, The Undertaker, earning him the spot as the ninth tallest person to ever wrestle for WWE.

Kane has been applauded for being incredibly safe in the ring, not only with his opponents, but also with himself, which is probably why he hasn’t picked up as many injuries as some other names on this list.

Now he’s done with wrestling, Kane (Glenn Jacobs) currently serves as the Mayor for Knox County in Tennessee.

8. Kurrgan – 7ft

Another 7ft man up next, as Kurrgan goes down as the eighth tallest wrestler to ever work for WWE.

Kurrgan worked for WWE (then WWF) between 1997 and 1999, being brought in as part of the Truth Comission and the Oddities.

The big man never really reached the heights in WWE (if you pardon the pun) that his huge frame suggested he might.

7. Big Show – 7ft

Big Show WWE

Such is the crazy nature of wrestling that despite being dubbed as the ‘World’s Largest Athlete’, Big Show only the seventh tallest WWE Superstar in history.

It was Big Show’s overall size, not just his height, that made him one of WWE’s biggest ever stars, and he certainly isn’t a short lad.

The former World Champion was even a couple of inches taller than The Undertaker, who he shared the ring with on multiple occasions, and just a touch taller than Kane, his former tag team partner.

6. Big Cass – 7ft

As Enzo Amore’s promo opener stated, Big Cass is 7ft tall, and you just can’t teach that.

Cass was brought into WWE through the NXT system, before debuting on the main roster alongside Amore in 2016.

WWE took a shine to Cass, due to his 7ft frame, and he was immediately made to feel like the star of the group, fighting for the Universal title just five months after arriving on the main roster.

Cass would last just two years on WWE’s main roster, before being released just after WrestleMania 34 in 2018, in the middle of a feud with Daniel Bryan.

However, considering how impresisve his look was, it’s not too surprising to hear just how enamoured people within WWE were of Cass.

5. The Great Khali – 7ft 1″

The Great Khali WWE

It’s no surprise that The Great Khali is one of the tallest WWE Superstars in history, standing at 7ft 1″.

The Indian star was one of the heaviest WWE stars ever too, and his huge frame earned him a run with the World Heavyweight Championship back in 2007.

No offence intended, but Khali’s huge frame and build showed in the ring, as he was really quite slow inside the ropes, but that was to be expected, given he was one of the tallest WWE stars ever.

4. Giant Silva – 7ft 2″

Giant Silva WWE

To be taller than The Great Khali is quite the accomplishment, and Giant Silva was just that.

Like Kurrgan, who featured earlier on this list, Giant Silva was brought into WWE from 1998 to 1999 was part of The Oddities.

Silva was the taller of the duo, standing at 7ft 2″, and given he weighed over 350lbs, he certainly looked like an absoute unit.

But still, despite his enormous frame, Silva wasn’t quite some way away from being the tallest WWE Superstar ever.

3. Omos – 7ft 3″

Omos WWE

Omos is the tallest member of the WWE roster currently, standing at 7ft 3″.

The former Raw Tag Team Champion is a beast of a man, and looking at just how big he is, it’s no wonder that WWE reportedly has huge plans for him.

Omos is so tall in fact, that images emerged online of Omos looking taller than AJ Styles, even when AJ was stood in the middle of the ring, and Omos was on the outside.

At WrestleMania 38, Omos dwarfed over Bobby Lashley, and that’s saying something, considering the former WWE Champion is one of the largest members of the active WWE roster.

2. Andre The Giant – 7ft 4″

As his name suggests, Andre The Giant was no small man.

The WWE Hall of Famer is the second largest individual to ever wrestle for the WWE, standing at 7ft 4″.

He’s also the largest person to ever hold the WWE Championship, with the person at number one never having won the belt.

WWE used Andre’s height to sell tickets, with the spectacle of the big man being slammed by Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III being one of the most iconic in wrestling history.

But… he isn’t the tallest WWE Superstar ever.

1. Giant Gonzalez – 8ft

Let’s not beat around the bush here, Giant Gonzalez was an absoute mountain of a human being.

The Argentinan weighed in at more than 460lbs, but more impressive than that, stood at a staggering 8ft tall.

Gonzalez was about a whole foot taller than The Big Show. and to put that difference into context, Show is about a foot taller than Chris Jericho.

Gonzalez was with WWE for around a year, even wrestling The Undertaker at WrestleMania, but his huge frame ultimately meant that he was unable to really work in WWE.

Despite his short stint in WWE, no one can take away from the fact that Gonzalez is the tallest person to ever work a match for the company.
