Meet the Smarks' new favorite wrestler: John Cena, Jr.

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 July 13 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Wednesday's ROH TV, Lucha Underground, WWE NXT TNA ImpactThursday's WWE SmackDown, and whatever other internet streaming wrestling that aired from July 12 - 18.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Hope this latest rub works out better for last week's winner than this one did...

  • A rematch in the main event spot on Raw gives us a Swiss weekly champ AND makes the Ce-Nation leader the leader of the annual Standings (more on that in a bit).
  • Two guys who broke arms were neck-in-neck for third, but threatening to set Vampiro on fire is worth a little bit more in your books than destroying a rednecked-up Caddy. Another armbreaker from the UK also made a surprising leap into the middle of The S3 via WWNLive.
  • It's clear whose side you Smarks are on in the Rusev/Lana break-up, since The Bulgarian Brute and his new blonde lady friend made the list while the Ravishing Russian and her boy toy were nowhere to be found.
  • Trying to BO-tivate the suddenly adrift Smark fave Dean Ambrose won a former NXT champ your votes.
  • Somebody's gonna slink her way out of Ultima Lucha holding all the gold, isn't she? And look good in a little black dress while doing it.

The S3: 2015-16, Week 15

1. Cesaro
2. John Cena

3. Pentagon, Jr.
4. Brock Lesnar
5. Rusev

6. Zack Sabre, Jr.
7. (tie) Bo Dallas

7. (tie) Summer Rae
9. Kazuchika Okada
10. Catrina

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

With almost all of the rest of the top of our annual list taking a week off, the unheard of has happened...John Cena leads something with the word "Smark" in the title. The influx of newcomers earning Standings points this week left room for Lesnar to move up and The King of Swing to hit the year-to-date ten as well.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending July 11

1. John Cena - 82 points
2. Seth Rollins - 78.5

3. Kevin Owens - 69

4. Dean Ambrose - 62.5

5. Neville - 54.5
6. Roman Reigns - 34

7. Brock Lesnar - 24

8. Cesaro  - 23

9. Sheamus - 20

10. Kane - 18
