The S3: Vote for Best Performer of the 2014-15 Season, Week 17

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 28th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Tuesday night's Main Event, the Thursday, July 31st editions of TNA Impact, WWE NXT & and ROH TV, and the WWE SmackDown that aired on Friday, August 1st.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


A promo like that, and you deserve to win the S3 and get a free plug for your upcoming DVD...

  • I truly expected last week to be a runaway for Heyman, with maybe only that felon Stephanie McMahon on his heels.  But Sneaky Pete and Fat Tony almost snuck in and stole the week for a guy whose pay-per-view (PPV) match technically didn't happen.
  • An actual heel turn (or was it?) pushed the Anti-Diva right back into the conversation.  If she'd been portrayed as a bad ass this whole time, she might be in a whole 'nother conversation...
  • The It Factor got a win over the man who suspended him from Impact, and his usual bulk of the TNA votes.
  • Wins and losses didn't matter for you Smarks last week, as three guys who got thrown out of the Intercontinental championship battle royal placed while the new IC champ didn't, and the cult members who lost two of three falls to the tag champs placed ahead of Jimmy & Jey Uso.

The S3: 2014-15, Week 16

1. Paul Heyman
2. Dean Ambrose

3. Stephanie McMahon
4. Paige
5. Bobby Roode

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

A lot of upward mobility this week, as six out of the existing year-to-date top ten add to their totals - including leader of the pack Ambrose and weekly winner Heyman, who moves from the brink of slipping off the list to near the front of a crowded back half.

2. Seth Rollins - 78.5

3. Bo Dallas - 62.5
