2020 is shaping up to be the year women’s wrestling takes over

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 July 6 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday’s Impact & Dark, Dynamite & NXT from Weds., July 8, SmackDown on Friday, New Japan’s New Japan Cup Final, and any other televised or internet streaming wrestling that aired from July 5 - 11, 2020.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

Aside from the laid back dude who’s been a thorn in Chris Jericho’s side and the guys who will fight for the Intercontinental title on next week’s SmackDown, out latest top ten is all about women’s wrestling. And all of the ladies who placed worked on Wednesday night during the voting period.

3. Hikaru Shida
4. Bayley
