The S3: YOUR Vote for the Week Ending Sept. 16th & Last Week's Results


Sometimes, things that appear to be curses are really blessings in disguise. Like Daniel Bryan's loss to Sheamus in 18 seconds at WrestleMania. Or losing the ability to add a poll to FanPosts on SBNation.

The Smark's Shoot Standings (S3) are rolling with our new voting method, and this Smark loves that regular members of the Cageside Seats community are weighing in with their thoughts on which three performers had the best week. You can join in, too. Just add a comment below with your list of the three people who impressed you the most on nationally televised pro wrestling last week, and we'll compile your thoughts with your fellow Cagesiders to come up with our weekly top ten. We also use those to come up with an annual list of the performers who we've found the most entertaining since WrestleMania XXVIII.

Hit the jump to see last week's winners and join the smarty! (get it? Smart Party! yeah, probably not)

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week - the September 10th RAW, Impact from September 13th, the Smackdown episode that aired on the 14th and WWE's Night of Champions Pay-Per-View (PPV).

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


Mr Hug It Out earned your friendship and votes. Punk proved to be a Heyman guy - it may not have been enough to get him a heel reaction, but it got them second and third place in the S3. A surprise victory in the Bound for Glory series got the charismatic enigma his best ever finish, and TNA's only entry of the week. Damien Sandow rounded out the top five, because even being relegated to Superstars can't stop enlightenment. Kane deadpanned his way to number six, followed by a car crash of smark faves and guys that keep winning despite what the internet wrestling community (IWC) thinks of them.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending Sept 9

1. Daniel Bryan
2. CM Punk
3. Paul Heyman
4. Jeff Hardy
5. Damien Sandow
6. Kane
7. (tie) Dolph Ziggler
7. (tie) Sheamus
7. (tie) Alberto Del Rio
10. Antonio Cesaro

As our regulars know, workers who place in the weekly Standings are awarded points (ten for first through one for tenth) that are totalled to give us our annual S3. The top of which continues to look a lot like the top of our weekly list:

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending Sept 9

1. CM Punk - 157.5 points
2. Daniel Bryan - 138.5
3. AJ Lee - 108
4. Austin Aries - 103
5. Dolph Ziggler - 79.5
6. Damien Sandow - 65.33
7. Chris Jericho - 53
8. Brock Lesnar - 45
9. Bobby Roode - 41
10. Alberto Del Rio - 39.25

This week's comments should be interesting. How do you judge a once-in-a-lifetime episode of Raw? What weight do we give the folks who hustled to entertain us while a real-life drama unfolded around them (and us) in real time? The world of pro wrestling soldiered on, through an episode of Impact that started setting up their biggest event of the year, and a Smackdown designed to sell WWE's Night of Champions...a PPV that seems to be drawing mixed reviews.

Check out Nolan's results summary and the Night of Champions results post for a refresher, and then let us know what YOU think!
