One last look at how Smarks viewed wrestling before TLC made them fall in love with WWE again

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 - WWE's TLC pay-per-view (PPV), the December 14 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday's WWE NXT TakeOver: London, TNA Impact and ROH TV, WWE SmackDown from December 17, Ring of Honor's Final Battle PPV, and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from December 13 - 19.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Though she looks good with it, this woman doesn't seem to be in the NXT title picture right now...

...does winning a week of The S3 make up for it?

  • Wow, everybody sure feels different about WWE than they did seven days ago, huh?
  • The Smark Revolt was still in full swing last week, with the only reason there were more poll eligible performers in the top ten probably because KO was back from sick leave. He, the guy he was feuding with for the Intercontinental title, that guy's brother and then-#1 contender for the WWE strap represented the main roster men in the top ten.
  • Everybody's favorite punstress continued to attract a lot of support, and plenty of folks were till down with the twerking, unicorn horn-wearing version of The B0$$ last Sunday, to put a couple of nationally televised ladies on the list.
  • Which meant lots of NXT, including last week's winner and a woman who knocked her opponent cold to send said winner a message ahead of their showdown in London.
  • A couple of Full Sail-based motormouths with great looks from the tag division rounded out our last Standings before everyone fell in love with WWE again.

The S3: 2015-16, Week 37

1. Emma
2. Asuka
3. Becky Lynch
4. Samoa Joe
5. Sasha Banks

6. Roman Reigns
7. Kevin Owens

8. Alexa Bliss
9. Dean Ambrose
10. Enzo Amore

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

Probably nothing to see here as long as the current leader continues collected points, but I have a feeling the Big Dog is going to close the distance over the rest of our WrestleMania-to-WrestleMania year.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending December 12

1. Kevin Owens - 193 points
2. Seth Rollins - 167.5

3. Cesaro  - 116.5

4. John Cena - 115.5

5. Roman Reigns - 98.5
6. Dean Ambrose - 80

7. Sasha Banks - 71.5

8. Xavier Woods - 69.5
9. Neville - 65.5

10. Big E - 56


After a couple of weeks where no one wanted to go back and think about the shows eligible for votes, darn near all the stuff from the past seven days is fun to revisit. Do it with our sections for TLC, Raw, Impact, NXT, Smackdown, and ROH, give a bunch of great performances their due diligence, then tell us who you decided deserves your precious vote below.
