Sexiest WWE Superstars Tournament 2018 Preliminary Round (Qualifiers)

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, June 15, 2018
Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Smark Out Moment SEXIEST WWE SUPERSTARS TOURNAMENT!!

This tournament was one of the founding segments of this site, as the inaugural edition was massive, spanning from January to October of 2012 and focusing on nearly every woman to have ever appeared (by that time) in WWE, WCW, ECW and TNA. Over the years, the concept has evolved to be an annual tradition and focusing solely on WWE's roster of both men and women, a more streamlined voting system and a podcast breakdown dedicated to it.

Past winners were Mickie James (inaugural), Eva Marie (2014), Nikki Bella and Dolph Ziggler (2015), Paige and Seth Rollins (2016), Alexa Bliss and Finn Balor (2017)

It's time to start looking at the current crop of performers in WWE to determine who are the hottest today!

The contest will consist of two posts per week—one for the women and one for the men. Voting will take place through Google Forms and we will give our thoughts on the results and the next round in podcast form.

QUALIFYING ROUND BREAKDOWN


Before we get into Round 1, we need to narrow down the field to 32 men and 32 women in order to determine the brackets. This is a daunting task, as WWE's on-air talent consists of over 150 men and 60+ women.

Step 1 was to narrow down the men by eliminating referees, managers and the broadcast team as well as talent that had not been on the air in the past 12 months.

Step 2 was to eliminate masked talent, as nobody knows what they look like (sorry Kalisto, Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik, Sin Cara, etc).

Step 3 was about weeding out the herd through a selection process based on previous tournament data. This eliminated the bottom of the barrel of men who were unable to ever make it any far in the qualifying process, like Erick Rowan, Konnor, etc, as well as make some educated guesses based off discussions on our Facebook group, The Mega Maniacs to eliminate others like War Raiders.

However, that still left us with 46 women and 69 men, so here is where you step in with our preliminary round to see who qualifies to even enter the tournament!

Simply fill out the form below (which asks you to choose the 14 women and the 37 men you'd like to already eliminate from the competition) and when the voting concludes, I will seed the brackets based on last year's performances, this year's qualifying votes and a randomization process.
