When i was a kid, I'd swear i heard Hogan was like 6'7" but maybe that was with boots on. Anyways... Have you seen these stupid furniture rental commercials with Troy Aikman. Aikman is listed as 6'4" and he seems to be about 2 to 3 inches taller than Hogan.

His balls did some significant shrinking in the 80's.

All wrestlers over-estimate their height. I guarantee Hogan isn't more than 6'2" or 6'"3 without his wrestling boots on

The older you get the more you shrink. My dad use to be 5'10", now he's lucky if he's 5'8".

Yes..at the onset of middle age men lose approx 1/4th of an inch a year due to bone and tendon loss..in women it is greater.

Both of his hips and one of his knees are replacements now. He shouldn't be able to get too much shorter. Maybe he's cycling on and off of HGH. He's had his kids, and probably doesn't care so much anymore about firing blanks for the rest of his days.

He was a legit 6'5" at his peak, and those injuries and surgeries probably took some out of him.

Hogan has shrunk and so has his bank account and thats the reason he's doing these dumb commercials. 6 foor 5 and 24 inch pythons are the past...I think he's a Douche among douches, but he has to stick around to make some Cash. I honestly feel bad for him because once again someone else cashed in on what he worked hard for. Linda never took a bad backdrop or fought in a cage...

Wait Now to think of it..Hogans matches werent that extreme..What the fuck is hurt for? He punched and kicked for 20 minutes (with him being the one who won 99% of the time) How did his hip get all fucked up? he never did half as much as the other guys yet he's hurt like he did Hell in the Cell every other week.

He probably did far more damage to his body with the weights and steroid cycles then any of his professional pretend fights.

You have to remember that the WWF worked a much more extreme schedule during Hogan's time at the top than it does now. Couple that with the fact that the WWF rings had much less give to them and that Hogan had a bad knee before he even got into wrestling.

Can you imagine 30 years of compressing your spine like that? It's a wonder he's not a midget.

But none of those guys are as tall as they're billed as. I have a friend who is an indy wrestler that they bill as 7'3". He's 6'10" on a good day. And I know for a fact I'm taller than Scott Steiner.

But Hulk frequently work that schedule, he did fewer and fewer house shows, down to rarely wrestling on TV, and didn't defend the WWF title between trading it with Yokozuna.

It's the 'roids.

Of course the 'roids were a big part of it. I'm just saying that it wasn't only the 'roids.

If you're referring to testicles or bank accounts, then yes, he is shrinking.
