The S3: Vote for Best Performer of the 2014-15 Season, Week 14

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 - the July 7th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw,Tuesday night's Main Event, the Thursday, July 10th editions of TNA Impact, WWE NXT & and ROH TV, and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday the 11th.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


Dean Ambrose is a 13 year old boy, you sick sons of bitches!


Oh, that's him doing the choking.  Makes sense why you smarks love him so much.

  • Three years of doing this thing, three times it looks like winner will be established by SummerSlam.  Is it just the way it goes, or do we need to tweak something?
  • Ambrose's traitorous ex-partner was right behind last week, and is still within striking distance overall.  Cesaro finished middle of the pack last week, as he does almost every week, keeping him a threat.  But building an early lead and then staying in the top half the rest of the way has been the formula to earn the annual crown, and it looks like Dean is doing it in '14-'15.
  • The big Raw returns made a big splash, but even Vintage Rancho! couldn't get the new Divas champ in front of Y2J.
  • The Billion Dollar Princess lip synched her way to a nice finish, it paid to beat up Kenny King, Zeb stood up for 'Murica, Bray got a chance at redemption and Gail Kim won the Knockouts title.
  • Don't know if anyone's curious about how the votes turn into the top ten or not, but since I've been thinking on screen about it this week, thought I'd show you the spreadsheet tabulation.  It's crazy how much we've grown...this time even last year, someone who got support in the poll and a couple of comment votes like Bo Dallas or Roman Reigns would have been in the top five.  This year they're out of the top ten, and therefore get no annual points for the week.
