Daniel Bryan re-occupies the top spot in the Smark Shoot Standings

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 January 19th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground & WWE NXT from Wednesday the 21st, Thursday's free web release of ROH TV and WWE SmackDown on SyFy, and the TNA Impact Wrestling that aired on Friday, January 23rd.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


We remember

  • The beard. Is. Back.  And he brought out the best in his old nemesis Steph, who showed up on here for the first time in a while.
  • Leaving Brock Lesnar and John Cena curb stomped to the canvas is going to leave a mark, on Smarks and the WWE Universe.  The champ's Advocate also seems to have been motivated by having the Architect to banter at.
  • The Masters of the WWE Universe continue to impress (tag maneuvers and what not), the Fact Man gets an additional bump for being slapped by Paige.
  • NXT brought a packed show to Wednesday with them, and you loved it.  A charismatic Irishman got the most attention, but the champ, former champ and the villain who sent them both out on a stretcher also drew a bunch of votes.
