The S3: YOUR Vote for the Week Ending Aug. 26 and Last Week's Results


We're going to be doing things a little different here at the Smark's Shoot Standings (S3) this week. As usual, this is the spot for YOU to weigh in on which performer you think had the best week in big-time pro rasslin'. We'll also give you a rundown of how YOUR fellow smarks viewed the week prior and the year-to-date.

So what's different? Due to technical difficulties (or as we call it the tech field, user error) the S3 doesn't feature our usual poll this week. We're doing it Cageside Seats tournament style. Please make a comment on this post which includes your vote. If YOU want to stick to the tournament format and put Vote - Wrestler X in the subject line, that's fine. If not, we'll do our best to parse out YOUR intent and confirm it with a reply. I don't expect to get deluged with Votes in this format, so it shouldn't be a huge deal.

But do join in. It's interesting to get a glimpse into the Smark psyche week-to-week, and we can't do it without YOU.

Remember, the poll is for the previous week - the post-SummerSlam August 20th RAW, Impact from the 23rd and the August 24th episode of Smackdown.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

It was a brutal match-up, but the new King reigns supreme.


A couple of guys who would leave the WWE the next night duked it out for the weekly title that concluded at SummerSlam. In the end, the Master of the Brocktagon was one vote better than the Ayatollah of Rock n' Rolla. The new US Champ can say "third place" in five languages. The remainder of the list is a lot of the usual suspects, although Lesnar's mouthpiece breaks up the pack and places on the S3 for the first time at number seven.

The S3 - Week Ending August 19

1. Brock Lesnar
2. Chris Jericho
3. Antonio Cesaro
4. CM Punk
5. (tie) Austin Aries
5. (tie) Daniel Bryan
7. Paul Heyman
8. (tie) AJ Lee
8. (tie) The Miz
8. (tie) Bully Ray

Weekly standings are assigned points (ten for first down to one for tenth) and those points are used to list our annual standings. Last week's list leaves our annual list mostly unchanged, although Brock and Jericho do move up based on their 1 - 2 finish.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending August 19

1. CM Punk - 133 points
2. Daniel Bryan - 120.5
3. AJ Lee - 106
4. Austin Aries - 99.5
5. Dolph Ziggler - 76.5
6. Chris Jericho - 53
7. Damien Sandow - 46.83
8. Bobby Roode - 41
9. Brock Lesnar - 36.5
10. Big Show - 29.5

As far as this week goes, the Vote is more in YOUR hands than ever. Use the comments to decide. We will get YOU started however. Below is a list of performer who would have been on the poll, if we had been able to figure out how to have a poll. See YOU next week!
