There's no waving off this Dean Ambrose victory

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 Mar. 14 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's TNA Impact, Wednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT and ROH TV,  Thursday's SmackDown, Saturday's EVOLVE 56 and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Mar. 13 - 19, 2016.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Safe to say S3 voters are not basing their ballots on's Power Rankings...

  • Every vote counts, as Y2J's return to villainy saw him leading the Standings until the final two ballots, when everyone's favorite big-match losing Lunatic passed him to win his second straight week.
  • Some bearded freak from NXT showed up on Raw to pummel the Intercontinental champ, and you sadistic bastiches loved it. You also rewarded the guy with the bad haircut who hit him with forearm in Atlantic City.
  • Working against full heels returned the tag champs to the S3 for the first time in months.
  • A couple of very different promotions' top guys filled out the back half of last week's ten, along with TNA's cruiserweight-type champ (who earned his spot for a lot of non-TNA work he put in with Roy Wilkins, who just missed the cut).
