Heel or face, smarks love Becky Lynch

New, 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 - the Aug. 27 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday's SmackDown & 205 Live, Lucha Underground, NXT & ROH TV from Wednesday, Thursday's Impact Wrestling, the ALL IN pay-per-view (PPV) and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Aug. 26 - Sept. 1, 2018.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

She’s taking down everybody...

...in our Standings, for now, but soon - the world!

  • An anti-hero turn and a new Universal Champ top a list almost exclusively made up of SummerSlam performances.
  • Although fallout shows didn’t hurt, with the new Intercontinental Titleholder and his Lunatic bud probably getting as much love for reforming a certain trio with the Big Dog as for their PPV work. The guy from the new SmackDown Tag Champs is certainly here for his work on the Tuesday in question.
  • The return of the Demon earned one former NXT Champ a lot of votes, and telling the Styles family he was their new daddy did the trick for another.
  • Two folks with a few Hollywood credits on their resume won at SummerSlam and tied in our Standings, even though one of them left Brooklyn with a belt and Stephanie McMahon’s arm.
  • Lucha Libre represent! Triplemania gave another tie, with half a point going to the luchador enmascarado who beat Double-J for the Mega Championship. The other half went to a legend who took El Hijo del Fantasma’s mask.

Where there were lots of small moves, but the big ones were at the top, where Bex and Seth continued to move past the idle United States Champ and pad their lead.
