NXT isn't the only place with a bunch of ex-TNA guys on top

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 April 25 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's TNA ImpactWednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT and ROH TV,  Thursday's SmackDown and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from April 24 - 30, 2016.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Started from the bottom...

I kid, I kid.

TNA was pretty dope back then. If they'd have consistently pushed the guys who got the most votes from you last week, they might still be.

  • We didn't have to see it to tip our digital cap to the new NXT champ.
  • Probably would have been excited to see three Bullet Club members together on WWE television, but it certainly didn't hurt that they're all vying to lay the smackdown on Roman Reigns.
  • The Intercontinental title feud is making your day.
  • Sadly, it seems JerichKO will have to exist in our hearts, and your votes, for now.
  • The undead guy got a few more votes than the mass murdering freak of nature he took with him through the roof of El Jefe's office.
