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 - Chikara's King of Trios, the Sept. 5 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown Live, Wednesday's Lucha Underground, WWE NXT, the Cruiserweight Classic and ROH TV, Thursday's TNA Impact, EVOLVE 68 and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Sept 4 - 10, 2016.
Make YOUR mark, smarks!
Hey champ! You excited a bunch of fans voted for you last week?
- Deserves or not, KO is Champion of the Universe, and you honored his achievement with lots of first place votes. His patron proved himself a big deal just by showing up, and got some love accordingly.
- Daniel Bryan's bestie didn't win anything, except your tears and support.
- A trip to the single-wide did as much as winning their tournament match for everyone's favorite Tuesday night tag team.
- Amazing as it is that DDT Pro and Dragon Gate guys made the top ten, it's even more amazing they did it via wins on WWE Network.
- Last week's top two fell off a bit, but they're still repping the blue brand well. Getting racked by the ropes is better than walking away from a fight in your books, though.
- Hey. You wanted some Bay-Day.
