10 Tallest Wrestlers Ever (And How Giant They Really Were)
6. Giant Silva - 7'2''
Giant Silva is a man who's been around. Initially a basketball player, the Brazilian Silva moved on to pro wrestling in 1997. He enjoyed a two year stint in the WWE as a part of the Oddities stable, before continuing his career in New Japan Pro Wrestling and ultimately going on to ply his trade as a mixed martial artist.
Though billed at 7'3" in his wrestling days, his background in more legitimate sporting fields give us a clearer indication as to his true height. And on this occasion, the forces of embellishment weren't particularly at large.
Silva is officially measured at 7'2". When playing basketball, he was a tad shorter at 7'1", but that was over two and a half decades ago. Further evidence of his 7'2" stature is presented in the clip of Silva tagging with Khali, and thus it's reasonable to accept this figure.
