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 three performers you think entertained or impressed the most in the last week, and feel free to talk about why. And/or vote for your top performer in our poll.
We also have the outcome of last week's voting, the results of which make up our annual competition for Performer of the Year. This week, instead of just the annual top ten, we have the FULL LIST of everyone who has earned an annual point this "season".
Remember, the Standings are for the previous week's nationally televised pro wrestling shows - WWE's Battleground pay-per-view (PPV) from October 6th, the October 7th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday night's WWE Main Event, TNA Impact from October 10th and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday the 11th.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
His second weekly win means that probably not everybody does...
...but I would watch the crap out of that show.
• And you know it's a slow week when the winner barely beats out a little person in a bull costume. A very talented little person in a bull costume, but still...
• You always remember your first Giant Swing of a WWE hoss.
• Being big, bad and beautiful in addition to being a Paul Heyman guy will get you over.
• Lots of support spread around for the men who do their job well amidst the general detritus of TNA, and the women who stand out from the generic tableau of Divas in WWE by doing the same.
• And the current patriarch of the Rhodes clan and the future one of the McMahons got enough heat heading into Battleground to snag some points.

Points in our weekly Standings determine our annual list - full details on rules and scoring HERE.
And after a couple of weeks of teasers, here's a full list of the 66 men, women and sandwiches to earn a spot in a weekly top ten this year. The momentum has slowed on the Daniel Bryan express, but it would still take a miracle to catch him. But every other spot is in play...check it out.
Lots to consider this week. A WWE PPV that ended controversially followed by a Raw whose ending many enjoyed a great deal. TNA gave us their last live show before Bound for Glory, while Smackdown cooled down the week with the main eventers overseas. But don't take our word for it - relive everything that happened at Cageside Seats' sections for each show: Battleground, Raw, Main Event, Impact, Smackdown.
Than give us your vote!
