The Big Red Monster was known for his towering height and physique the moment he was seen for the first time. Standing taller than even The Undertaker, the crowd was shocked at how dominant Kane looked.

Holding the record once for the most eliminations in one Royal Rumble match, and of all time, Kane was a force to reckon with.

His superior height and athleticism gave him the edge over his shorter opponents.

It took a real miracle to bring down Kane back in the day. Not being as dominant as he once was, Kane still has his height, and can certainly still deliver a huge chokeslam.

Apart from Kane, Big Cass and Big Show are of the same billed height of 7 feet and 0 inches.

4. The Great Khali (7’1”)

Few may remember the chills that ran down their spines the day The Great Khali first made his appearance. This monster was unlike anyone had ever seen before. 

His height, coupled with the look of destruction on his face made him a true beast. Khali dominated “The Deadman” by tossing him around the ring like he was a toddler. 

Everyone was stunned by Khali’s incredible height.

Chopping down every superstar that came in front of him, this giant was finally stopped by the one and only John Cena in a brutal match.

Unfortunately for the Punjabi Giant, his height made him less agile, which was the weakness most wrestlers exploited.

Khali could not make as big an impact as he was capable of, but certainly gave us some of the best memories in his time.

3. Giant Silva (7’2”)

Perhaps the jolliest giant on this list, few remember the towering Giant Silva entering the ring.

Being the muscle of the faction ‘The Oddities,’ Silva was something else. 

This giant did not fear to jump off the top rope and even did it once, flattening his opponent!

His opponents had no solution dealing with him and he was rarely brought off his feet.

However, Giant Silva was another big man who didn’t reach his full potential in the ring.

His brief career in WWE did have some great moments, but his height is the one thing fans may remember him by today.

2. Andre the Giant (7’2”)

Andre the Giant is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Not only is he remembered for his monstrous height, but also for his open personality and loving nature.

There are a lot of funny stories revolving around Andre and his career that are still told today. His impact on WWE and those around him can not be underestimated.

While Andre could do much damage to the opponent inside the ring, he was one of the friendliest persons you could come across.

Despite his insane height, he was only the second tallest Superstar to ever enter the ring.

1.Giant Gonzales (8’0”)

The tallest human being to ever enter the ring was Giant Gonzales. The monster wore a single jumpsuit and made any opponent look minuscule. 

Gonzales was one of the most dominant superstars in WWE and stood tall, quite literally, among others.

Apart from wrestling, Gonzales was also a basketball player and an actor. He couldn’t make a much an impact as the other giants but is still one of the most iconic Superstars of all time.
