Call off the revolution... women's wrestling already won

New, 45 comments

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 - EVOLVE 73, the Nov. 14 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown Live, Wednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT, and ROH TV, Thursday's TNA ImpactTakeOver: Toronto and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Nov. 13 - 19, 2016.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Fans love ya, champ...

And that's why.

  • We'll call the UK trip a success for both WWE women's divisions, with SmackDown's champ retaining in controversial fashion, the Hugster hijacking a show and the Boss being the only one who knew how to deal with it... and all four taking top spots in the Standings.
  • Evolve's influence is growing at Cageside (I blame Rev), and that the guys in last weekend's standout Saturday match are smack in the middle of the top 10 proves it.
  • Even on different brands, Y2AJ remain so hot right now... something they share with the former Sensei of Mattitude. All three are getting anything they try over.
  • Good week for athletic big men, too. The Man of 1,000 deaths won a casket match, and BigAss McStrongman had a bit of a coming out party in Raw's main event.
