The S3: YOUR Vote for the Week Ending Oct. 14th & Last Week's Results


Everybody who comes to Cageside Seats has an opinion about what's going on in pro wrestling - the Smark's Shoot Standings (S3) are where YOU let us know YOURS.

Cast a vote in the comments. Give us the top three performers you think entertained or impressed the most in the last week, and feel free to talk about why.

The S3 also keeps an ongoing tally of your votes, which we use to determine a Performer of the Year. Below you'll find the latest version of the Standings and how that effected the annual list. And your feedback makes it all happen.

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week - the October 8th Raw, Wednesday night's Main Event, Impact from the 11th, the SmackDown episode that aired on October 12th and TNA's Bound for Glory pay-per-view.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


Maybe this is where he got the idea for his new shirt color?


(Alternate punchline: if getting slimed doesn't make you want to throw a spinning backfist, what would?)

The WWE Champ showed us how to properly bully an announcer, and proved that no one does straight-up villain better to win his second weekly crown and pad his annual lead. The very European US Champ made the most of his screen time and nailed his big spot on the Funkasaurus. The former Bubba Ray continues to be the best thing about TNA, with the guys who instigated the tag tournament in WWE and perhaps the biggest beneficiary of it right behind him. Stone Cold's best bud is seen in an S3 for the first time, with a car crash of the TNA TV Title-holder, the Raw General Manager, a Mexican aristocrat and the voice of the voice of the voiceless bringing up the rear.

The S3 - Week Ending October 7

1. CM Punk
2. Antonio Cesaro
3. Bully Ray
4. (tie) Kane
4. (tie) Daniel Bryan
6. Damien Sandow
7. Jim Ross
8. (tie) Samoa Joe
8. (tie) AJ Lee
8. (tie) Alberto Del Rio
8. (tie) Paul Heyman

In the Perfomer of the Year Standings, Punk's ten spot wipes out the gains that Bryan had made on him in recent weeks. There was some jostling for position further down the top ten, too, as Sandow leaps over the Show-Off, and Kane makes hay and climbs over some guys who haven't made much of anything in our polls lately. For rules, scoring and methodology, check out last week's post.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending Oct 7

1. CM Punk - 181 points
2. Daniel Bryan - 162.5
3. AJ Lee - 111.5
4. Austin Aries - 103
5. Damien Sandow - 81.83
6. Dolph Ziggler - 79.5
7. Chris Jericho - 53
8. Kane - 48.5
9. Bobby Roode - 45.5
10. Brock Lesnar - 45

A lot went down last week. Is there such a thing as bad publicity in pro wrestling? Is winning a belt that noteworthy when your best days and biggest paychecks are in your rearview? YOURS are the only opinions that count. "Big Money" Nolan Howell stiffed us on a results column this week, so for refreshers...go here for Raw, here for Main Event, here for Impact, here for Smackdown and the live blog for TNA's Bound For Glory PPV from last night. Once you've processed all that, comment away. See you next week!
