Welcome to the second week of the poll-free Smark's Shoot Standings (S3) - or as this writer likes to call it, "What the &#%( am I doing wrong!?!?" Poll or no poll, the S3 is the place for YOU: the smart mark, the internet wrestling fan, the profitable thorn in Vincent Kennedy McMahon's side, to weigh in on which performers entertained and impressed you the most during the past week in nationally televised pro wrestling.
Repeated thanks to the folks who commented their votes last week. This week I'd like to add another wrinkle to our new status quo. If you would, please list your TOP THREE performers from last week, in order. Since it's been proven here and elsewhere that comment-based voting results in fewer votes, thoughts on multiple wrestlers from our valued regulars will give us more info on which to base the Standings. No specific format rules - if I have a question, I'll reply to a comment. Let's see how it goes.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
It was close, and it involved some editorial fiat - I probably would have voted for him, and gave him credit for jolie's honorable mention - but ADR headlines our first comment-driven Standings. He narrowly edges the guy who quit the 'E and the guy who acted as our proxy in kicking Jerry Lawler's head off. And then there were a bunch of folks getting one vote for a bunch of reasons.
For newer Smarks, the S3 methodology and scoring system can be found in this post. If you're looking for a refresher on the week that was before weighing in, check out Nolan's excellent new Sunday feature. Here's a list of who would have been in the poll, which includes some folks who were not in official matches (remember, you can vote on any criteria you decide):
Alberto Del Rio
If nothing else, do what I've been doing and tell yourself it's only an arbitrary evaluation of a pretend sport. Have fun with it, and we'll most likely see you back here next week.
