NXT knocks out the a BO$$

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 February 16th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground & WWE NXT from Wednesday the 18th, Thursday's free web release of ROH TV and WWE SmackDown on SyFy, and the TNA Impact Wrestling that aired on Friday, February 20th.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!


She's SOOO not...

  • NXT took over the Standings with Rival, as both of their new champs impressed enough to sit a top last week's voting.
  • KO's family might be better taken care of now that he has some WWE gold, but the women were supported by you.  The Boss won the whole shooting match to go with her new title, but the former champ and the Hugster also placed...and Becky Lynch only missed the cut by a few points.
  • Tyson Kidd wasn't on this Takeover special, but he keeps racking points by appearing on every other show the company produces.
  • A former New Japan standout who's now the #1 contender to Owens' NXT crown and a Death Match survivor now showing the world he doesn't need hardcore rules to hang in New Japan take the middle slots, along with a technician who could hang in any environment looking to jump back in the WrestleMania main event.
  • Two-thirds of The Shield did enough to take up two positions in the back of last week's Ten, because even Smarks can't deny that The Big Dog can be quite a bad ass when booked properly, and because Traitorface is so good we can't hate even though we're still mad at him.

TJ makes his move past the stalled Show-Off, and is breathing down his Brass Ring Club partner's neck!  Meanwhile, a Big Dog is sniffing at the spot someone BO-lieved they could hang on to all year even without being on television.
