So I would say poor posture for sure can potentially take away a few inches. Are you certain about your height? Maybe the most underrated in terms of height of all wrestlers. He's taller than Hogan and The Rock for sure.
I just wanted to know either there was any kind of shoe advantage or not. I am in 1 inch sneakers, he has a boot that was about 1. I'd say perhaps somewhere in between the two could be a fair listing. I definitely trust Rob's judgment on this one this guy is standing about as straight as possible and can look weak 6'4 at times like with Rob above.
It's what tall people do I'm 6'5 naturally in photographs. They tend to relax, and slouch. When I'm in a photo with someone who is 5'9 or 5'10 I always slouch down, and relax, so we fit in the same photo frame.
How tall is Billy Gunn
And we appear a lot closer in height than we really are. But if I'm standing with someone who is 6'3 or 6'4 I tend to stand at my maximum height so I'm taller! And how much difference that makes. But when I stand up straight, I'm over 6'5. If you stood back-to-back with Billy, and both of you went for maximum height, the height difference would be a lot different than that picture.
Billy Gunn Height
To conclude, he probably genuinely is 6'3 when he's slouched and relaxed. Gunn might give shorter impression because he's much wider framed. I really don't know He must have been the only WWE wrestler in history to have his height downplayed. Honestly I was surprised he was given 6'4 on this site because I didn't think he looked that big originally.
Gunn in person is taller than many 6ft 3 guys to be fair. I would be a bit surprised if he measured only 6ft 3. If he was a full 6'4", he would've never had the 6'3" billing.
