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 23rd episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground & WWE NXT from Wednesday the 25th, Thursday's free web release of ROH TV and WWE SmackDown on SyFy, and the TNA Impact Wrestlingthat aired on Friday, March 27th.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
He might be part rat...
but he's about to be ALL your S3 Annual Champion.
- When "Being _Wrestler Name Here_" becomes a reason to vote for _Wrestler Name Here_, that guy or gal is doing a heck of job. Of course, in Traitorface's case, it doesn't hurt when one of the things he does is get his ass beat.
- The WWE champ gets paid and votes even when he doesn't show up, but you Smarks very much like it when another part-timer surprises us by leaving the rafters and swinging his bat.
- Ring of Honor alumni do well, even if no current members of that roster show up this week, as DB classes up the match quality of the IC title feud (with help from a couple of fellow babyfaces in the same program in the last two spots of the weekly ten) and KO takes care of business on the road with NXT.
- 6 - 8 had an international flair, with the phenomenal Lucha Underground casket match getting a couple of guys on the list and a New Japan Cup victory to go with a couple of bouts that will contend with Grave Consequences for Match of the Year landing a puro rising star just behind them.
