The S3: Vote for Best Performer of the 2013-14 Season, Week 31

Join in a discussion with your fellow internet fans about the past week in pro wrestling: who entertained us the most, and why!

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. The top ten from last week and the year-to-date are below.

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week's nationally televised pro wrestling shows - the November 4th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday night's WWE Main Event, TNA Impact from November 7th and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday, November 8th.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


Having won this week's S3, presumably he's referring to a title in WWE...


(Ignatius, BTW, is Your Intellectual Savior's personal Twitter scribe)

• He did look good, and this isn't the Wrankings, so becoming the second person to lose the match a Money in the Bank briefcase bought them didn't effect Your Votes.

• The first man to lose such a match not only defeated him, but did so in defense of his newly won World Heavyweight Championship (WHC). Despite not being a Smark fave, John Cena finished third, tied with another who lost in the ring but is always a winner in your eyes.

• Meanwhile, Goldust fever continued to burn at number two - and his tag team champion brother even got a little love himself at number seven. Face paint goes a long way with Voters, I guess.

• The patriarch of the Wyatts hasn't seen much Standing action in a while, but the start of a program with some name competitors may kickstart his run.

• The Showstopper shows up for about a half an hour of work and lands just a few spots behind The It Factor, who toils away weekly for the competition. Make of that what you will.

• Another tie-o-rama in the last position this week including the women's champ with another successful pay-per-view (PPV) defense, swingin' Antonio Cesaro, a Samoan Shield-man and the Second City Saint.

Ten points for Sandow shakes up the bottom of the list, but it took the Swiss Superman less than a point to pull ahead of Dean Ambrose in the top half.

A bit of a controversial week - are you a glass is half full, or a glass is half empty kind of a Smark? Bone up on the week that was - Impact, Raw, Main Event, Smackdown - then make your mark down below.
