Sexiest WWE Superstars Tournament Winner Reveal - Hottest Man in Wrestling 2017 | Smark Out Moment
Who is the sexiest WWE superstar on the roster right now? This tournament gave you the chance to determine who would be declared the hottest man in World Wrestling Entertainment's current roster as you voted and picked your favorites match by match. After five rounds, we have our victor and our king for 2017!

Here are the results from the Round 5 finals. With a score of 56 (62.9%) to 33 (37.1%), FINN BALOR has defeated Seth Rollins to become this year's winner!

Check out the bracket below to see how the tournament went down in its entirety and just how Finn Balor carved out a path to victory. Was it a matter of true fan support or did the seeding play a big factor?



BREAKDOWN AND ANALYSIS:

THE TYLER BREEZE OMISSION

Late into the tournament, I noticed that I had made a mistake where Tyler Breeze wasn't included in the qualifying round. A good number of the men who had been eliminated from previous preliminaries were taken off the list, but anybody who had qualified for tournaments in the past was supposed to be eligible for the list and his name simply wasn't copied and pasted. This took him out of the competition without a fighting chance, so an extra added question was put in the finals asking if people would have voted for him in the finals if he were up against either Seth Rollins or Finn Balor in one of their places.

The results for that are soundly indicating he would not have won against either Finn Balor or Seth Rollins, so it wouldn't have been a factor, which is good to see, as it means we don't have a false champion.

ALTERNATIVE FINALS

Just for curiosity's sake, it was asked how you would have voted if the semifinals had gone the opposite direction with the losers advancing into the finals instead of our two true finalists, which would have made the finals Zack Ryder vs. Randy Orton instead. In that scenario, who would have been voted the winner?

Your votes were 49 to 36 in favor of Randy Orton, which means The Viper effectively has earned the bronze medal for getting third place in this year's tournament, the silver medal going to Seth Rollins and of course the gold medal going to our winner, Finn Balor.

BEST BODY VOTE

Third place went to Dolph Ziggler, second place to AJ Styles and with a commanding lead above all others, your first place vote went to Finn Balor for this.

I'm surprised more votes didn't go to Jason Jordan, who had 0. I would have expected a few more to go Zack Ryder's and John Cena's ways, too. Randy Orton not getting a much higher percentage is a bit shocking as I think it's weird he ranked below Triple H.

BEST FACE VOTE

Third place went to Roman Reigns, second place to AJ Styles, and first place to last year's winner and this year's runner-up, Seth Rollins, just narrowly beating out Styles by one vote.

For getting no support on Best Body and getting only one vote for Best Face, Zack Ryder sure lasted far in the tournament itself, didn't he?

BEST PERSONALITY

Third place went to Sami Zayn, second place to Finn Balor and finally breaking out of the silver medal running, AJ Styles wins first place for this one.

I have a feeling many people voted based on character instead of the real person's personality, or people just aren't too familiar with everyone's attitudes and such. It's not surprising to me that Sami Zayn was ranked as high, but I'm kind of shocked Apollo Crews didn't get a vote if 2 people voted for Drew McIntyre.

CLOSEST CALL

The toughest nail-biter poll was in round 1 where Jeff Hardy only narrowly defeated Noam Dar with one single vote, as the score was 49 to 48 (50.5% for Hardy and 49.5% Dar)

BIGGEST LANDSLIDE VICTORY

The biggest blowout for the men's bracket was in round 1 where Seth Rollins utterly demolished Matt Hardy 91 to 7, getting 92.9% of the votes.

VOTING TURNOUT

The most active round we had this year for the men's bracket was a tie between the qualifiers and round #3, both with 112 votes.

BIGGEST SHOCKERS

From my point of view, I'm surprised Xavier Woods didn't qualify for the tournament and that Fandango lost in the first round to Dean Ambrose. Also, I underestimated AJ Styles' chances against Roman Reigns, as I figured he'd lose by a much larger margin than just two votes in round #2.
