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 - the June 9th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Tuesday night'sMain Event, the Thursday, June 12th editions of TNA Impact, WWE NXT & and ROH TV, and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday the 13th.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
In happier times...
- If I had a dime for each time I was surprised by a vote for Seth Rollins or Dean Ambrose coming out of Payback and the June 2nd Raw, I would have...ZERO DIMES.
- It's always a little surprising when John Cena gets a bevy of smark respect, as he and his Payback dance partner finished third and fourth.
- A couple of other members of The Shield vs. Evolution program clock in right behind them; I was surprised to find that this was The Game's first S3 appearance of 14-15.
- The rest of the weekly ten was filled out with future stars - the first winner of the reality show-ish version of NXT, the longest reigning NXT champion and two former Chikara standouts.
- Tough week to be a TNA performer, as Bully Ray and Robbie E each got some nice support, but couldn't crack the list given a well received WWE pay-per-view (PPV) and one of the most talked about Monday nights in years.

The bastard moves into second, and slightly closes the gap on his former partner. That is a smarky looking top four - I love it. Fairly certain any of those guys could walk out with the season crown, given some booking help...but there's a looooong way between June and WrestleMania 31.
