The S3: Vote for Best Performer of the 2014-15 Season, Week 9

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 four 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.

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week's nationally televised and internet streaming pro wrestling shows - WWE's Payback pay-per-view (PPV), the June 2nd episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Tuesday night's Main Event, the Thursday, June 5th editions of TNA Impact, WWE NXT & and ROH TV, and the WWE SmackDown that aired on June 6th.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Because one Olé and one N-X-T would pretty much sum up last week's voting.

  • In taking the top three spots, and four of the top ten, it's safe to say that NXT has taken over (hit that snare) - despite not being featured in the poll due to not being nationally televised.
  • Remember when Foxy was a title contender and the hope for a revitalized Divas division?  Keep hope alive.
  • I don't know what his odds were against Scott Steiner and Kurt Angle at Sacrifice, but Samoa Joe had a 141.67% chance of finishing in the middle of the pack last week.
  • Bully Ray talked his way into the top ten, and got TNA two men on the list!  That's a good mic worker.
  • In addition to the four active NXT roster members, there were three alumni of WWE's developmental system in the top ten.  Something they're doing down there is resonating with you Smarks.

The S3: 2014-15, Week 8

1. Sami Zayn
2. Tyler Breeze

3. Charlotte
4. Alicia Fox
5. Samoa Joe

6. Bo Dallas
7. Bully Ray

8. (tie) Cesaro
8. (tie) Adrian Neville
10. Bray Wyatt

Points in our weekly Standings determine our annual list - full details on rules and scoring HERE.

Just minor adjustments to the annual list in a down, pre-WWE PPV week.  I'd expect this is the last week that none of Ambrose, Rollins or Reigns picks up points for a while, though.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending May 31

1. Dean Ambrose - 41 points
2. Cesaro - 35.5

3. Seth Rollins -28.5

4. Paul Heyman - 28

5. Alicia Fox - 27
6. Paige - 26

7. Bray Wyatt - 25

8. Roman Reigns - 23

9. Bad News Barrett - 21

10. Bobby Roode - 20
