Smarks join in for a big Shield fist bump

New, 42 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 - New Japan’s G1 Climax final, the Aug. 14 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown and 205 Live, NXT and Lucha Underground from Wednesday, Thursday's “Destination X” edition of Impact Wrestling, ROH TV #308, Ring of Honor’s War of the Worlds UK: Liverpool internet pay-per-view (PPV) TakeOver: Brooklyn III and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Aug. 13 - 19, 2017.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Preach it, Romey!

  • Wow, The Shield thing is even more true this week than it was last week. Should have saved that headline.
  • The guy who threw a chair at The Guy also impressed, as did a Boss who pushed em all out the way until she got a #1 contender shot.
  • The G1 semis delivered. Go watch them (poor Tanahashi just didn’t get that much love, poor guy... hopefully he won’t cut his hair in despair).
  • Prince Pretty also found himself on the outside looking in as Dango and Danny Burch represented for shows that weren’t Raw or New Japan.
