The S3: Vote for Best Performer of the 2013-14 Season, Week 16

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

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

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.

Remember, the Standings are for the previous week's nationally televised pro wrestling shows - the July 22nd episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday night's WWE Main Event, TNA Impact from July 25th and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday the 26th.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


All I have to say about this is...

where's MY D-Bry Bleacher Creature?!?!

• Paul E. turns on his best friend and mocks him on national television; Punk gets staples in his head and an asskicking from brockle snar (btw - I think this was the first time Brock showed up for one of his non-verbal destruction appearances and didn't place in the Standings. That's more a testament to the strength of the week that was more than Lesnar's appeal wearing off, though). Coming in two spots lower in the Standings is just adding insult to injury.

• Cody proves that sometimes you win by losing, as he picks up eight points while former partner and blue briefcase winner Sandow splits a point for a tenth place tie.

• Winning the TNA World title is slightly more impressive than being General Manager of Raw. But at least Chris Sabin can take solace in knowing that it's more impressive than being named GM of Smackdown, or throwing a temper tantrum cause you have zero Bound for Glory series points.

• I didn't personally find Dean Ambrose to be more entertaining than his brothers-in-arms, but enough of you did for him to find the top ten for the first time in a long while.

• AJ is jilted and crazy (again), Fandango is crazy for the dance and we like them both just fine.

Bit of a slow down after a really busy week last time (I wonder when the last time a red briefcase winner wouldn't have placed? Oh yeah, last year!).

Brush up on the shows that we're considering this week: Raw, Main Event, Impact and Smackdown. Try not get it twisted with the taped spoilers that have come in for this upcoming week's shows - then vote!
