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 March 9th episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground & WWE NXT from Wednesday the 11th, Thursday's free web release of ROH TV and WWE SmackDown on SyFy, and the TNA Impact Wrestling that aired on Friday, March 13th.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
You Smarks thought Ambrose was going to catch me in the annual Standings?
- No selling a sexting scandal and heading right into the rare successful mini-feud with a mainstream celebrity, the Future widens his lead with a ten points from a win. The Jewish guy from Jersey who kicked him in the kishkes also represented well, and will undoubtedly be as proud of his fifth place finish in the S3 as he is of his collection of Emmys.
- Good week for chosen people with the gift of gab, as the champ's lawyer kept his client's name on wrestling fan's lips, with or without a working microphone.
- #AxelMania! The McGillibuddies always knew you had it in you, Curtis.
- Lil' Jimmy's pal managed a lot of support by playing the comedy angle, and riding an Intercontinental title program that's getting a lot of airtime, and got The Beard and The Lunatic Fringe some points. Bad news though, the actual IC champ didn't get much love.
- A main event slot on the WWE show where they always give
Divaswomen a chance got a lot of votes for the past two champs of the division.
- The Big Dog grabbed the brass ring of 7th place, thanks almost exclusively to a landslide win in the poll. Which I guess says that he's more popular with folks who don't want to log in to the site? Or just that it's not hard to vote multiple times that way? It's for that reason that comment votes are much more heavily weighted in calculating the Standings, folks. If you've got a horse in the race or an axe to grind, get an account and get to typing!
