Really? Miz is a Smark darling? Really? (That's Awesome)

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 - TNA’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view (PPV), the Oct. 3 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday'sSmackDown Live, Wednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT, and ROH TV, Thursday's TNA Impact and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Oct. 2 - 8, 2016.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Hey, Miz! Dolph came kind of close to beating you in last week's Standings...

  • Suprising no one, the best feud in the business dominated your ballots. And this was just for the week that set-up their career vs. title match for No Mercy.
  • Also from Tuesday nights - and thanks in large part to the best show in the business, Talking Smack - the three men battling for the WWE World title all added to their yearly totals. Especially a certain Total Bellas star who scared Renee Young on the after-show.
  • The Lasskicker only got her ass kicked on SD during the week in question, but she spit #StraightFire on TS.
  • Over on Raw, their makeshift tag team might not be what anyone was hoping for, but the Celtic Warrior and Swiss Superman sure did beat the crap out of each other.
  • Speaking of feuds with stiff matches, there's a new U.S. champ.
  • Their ratings may be down, but LU's first champ is getting a bit of direction in season three, and you Smarks rewarded him for it.

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

The disappearance of Raw's title scene from voting is making it look like no one will catch the Champ Who Runs the Camp. But there was another complete reshuffling in the back half of the annual top ten to keep things interesting!
