Drew McIntyre is ready for the top spot

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 April 27 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday’s Impact & AEW Dark, Dynamite & NXT from Weds., April 29, SmackDown on Friday, this week’s MLW Fusion & ROH TV, and any other televised or internet streaming wrestling that aired from April 26 - May 2, 2020.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

My friend Stella’s been trying to tell all of us...

... seems I’m not the only one who’s become a believer.

  • Convinced enough to give the WWE champ a win over another star-making performance by one of AEW’s young guns.
  • The other young gun Darby shared a ring with during the week in question tied for third, with a compelling NXT character everyone is trying to get a read on.
  • Two real-life married couples landed in our top ten, but one’s working against each other in kayfabe on Monday nights while the other is on the same page whether they’re working or shooting.
  • Last week’s mix also had a guy using his WWE release as a work, and an ex-WWE Superstar who’s proven he can make anything work... even a five-person Zoom gimmick named after a 70s sitcom.
