Smarks think they’re ready for Asuka

New, 36 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 - WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV), the Aug. 21 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown and 205 Live, NXT and Lucha Underground from Wednesday, Thursday's Impact Wrestling, ROH TV #309, AAA’s Triand any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Aug. 20 - 26, 2017.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

One last time...

  • When most of the voting went down, we didn’t even know she was injured - let alone that she would vacate the belt she’s held for over 500 days. But her match with a woman who’s been her toughest challenge impressed at TakeOver.
  • So did Johnny Wrestling’s work in the opener, and the debut of a Panama City guy... but surprisingly, those were the only folks who consolidated enough support to chart from Brooklyn III.
  • From Raw, the Hounds of Justice continued to impress on their two separate paths. But not as much as someone did for winning a #1 contenders match in her hometown.
  • The finals of G1 Climax represented for a strong edition of the tournament (which certainly showed up more often here in our WWE-focused corner of the world than in past years).

The S3: 2017 - 18, Week 20

1. Asuka
2. Sasha Banks
3. Ember Moon
4. Johnny Gargano
5. Roman Reigns
6. Dean Ambrose
7. Tetsuya Naito
8. Kenny Omega
9. Adam Cole
10. Seth Rollins

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

The Cleaner moves ahead of the White Chocolate Cheesecake of SAnitY, but otherwise it was a good week for the ladies as The Boss claims second and The Empress moves up into an interesting tie for ninth (now that’s a match I’d like to see).

The S3 Performer of the Year - through the Week Ending Aug. 19

1. Roman Reigns - 85
2. Sasha Banks - 60.5
3. Fandango - 60
4. (tie) Tyler Breeze - 50.5
4. (tie) Braun Strowman - 50.5
6. Samoa Joe - 43.5
7. Kenny Omega - 34
8. Nikki Cross - 33
9. (tie) AJ Styles - 30
9. (tie) Asuka - 30


Remember SummerSlam? That counts for this vote, as do the usual suspects like Raw, Smackdown, 205 Live, NXT, Lucha Underground, Impact, and the rest of what the wild, wild web had to offer.

Give us you faves from those shows. We’ve got it from there.
