Alexa Bliss doesn't need a steel cage to earn Smark's respect

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 - WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV), the Oct. 31 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown Live, Wednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT, and ROH TV, Thursday's TNA Impact, New Japan Pro Wrestling's  and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Oct. 30 - Nov. 5, 2016.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Your winner, repping 2Pawz and showing she's all about that...

  • The Pixie-Hulk probably won't win the SmackDown Women's title on Tuesday in Scotland, but with the help of a can of spray paint, she's convinced a lot of us she might. The champ (who also charted) better watch her recently yellow-ed back.
  • Just like last week, the blue brand's main event scene takes up spots 2 - 4... albeit in a slightly different order this time.
  • Similarly identical to seven days ago, the keeper of the List of Jericho landed in fifth on your list.
  • Raw's simplest, and possibly best, storyline got David and Goliath-types on the S3.
  • And Freelance is great and all, but I'm giving Reverend Kain's coverage an assist - his match of the week on the indie streaming scene has earned enough votes to land in the top ten again.

The S3: 2016-17, Week 30

1. Alexa Bliss
2. AJ Styles
3. Dean Ambrose
4. James Ellsworth
5. Chris Jericho
6. Becky Lynch
7. (tie) Braun Strowman
7. (tie) Mustafa Ali
9. Lio Rush
10. Sami Zayn

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

The Lasskicker replaces the former Raw Women's champ as the lone female representative in our year-to-date top ten, but I can't imagine The Boss will be off this list for long.

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending Oct. 29

1. AJ Styles - 188
2. Dean Ambrose - 122
3. Kevin Owens - 97
4. The Miz - 68
5. Seth Rollins - 67
6. Cesaro - 63.5
7. Roman Reigns - 56
8. Matt Hardy - 52.5
9. Becky Lynch - 49
10. Heath Slater - 47
