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 January 13th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday night's Main Event, the Genesis edition of TNA Impact from January 16th, and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday, January 17th.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
Dean is not surprised about his latest weekly S3 victory.
• And he especially looked great in that Raw main event, smiling under the python of a returning Jake Roberts. The Snake's return was one of the feel good stories of the year, and he won last week's poll and finished third overall in the voting.
• The muscle of The Shield became the first of the hounds to defeat CM Punk in a one-on-one (plus two) showdown, and earned a second place ranking.
• AJ Styles said good-bye to TNA in a less than flattering schmoz, but you paid your respects regardless. Amassing the same number of votes was Fandango, who dances his way into the weekly ten just about every time WWE gives him something meaningful to do.
• The Best in the World tied for sixth with the departing Kaitlyn, who represented with a farewell match on Main Event against BFF...
• AJ Lee, herself in a big jam-up at the bottom of the list with fellow friend-of-Kaitlyn Big E Langston, the Brock Lesnar face and The It Factor of professional wrestling.

Points in our weekly Standings determine our annual list - full details on rules and scoring HERE.
Ambrose remains mathematically alive, but I imagine a pretty strong showing for The Beard will wrap up the race for our Annual #1. Lots of jockeying for position still going on in the yearly S3, though. Roman moves in front of his former co-tag champ, and Fandango waltzes Damien Sandow right out of the ten spot with twelve weeks to go.
