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 Wrestle Kingdom 15 & New Year’s Dash!!, the Jan. 4 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday’s Impact & AEW Dark, MLW Fusion, NXT & Dynamite from Weds., Jan. 6, NJPW Strong, SmackDown & 205 Live on Friday, NXT UK, ROH TV, any other televised or internet streaming wrestling released from Jan. 3 - 9, 2021.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!
  • -1, his dad, a faction mate, and a visiting friend dominated our last Standings. You know why that was.
  • A new #1 contender and a chance for the Empress to remind us she’s a badass put two members of the Raw roster in the Top 10... which feels like a lot for the red brand these days.
  • SmackDown took the rest of the spots, starting with the Intercontinental champ, and continuing to the Tribal Chief & the dude he threw off the stage.
  • Of course The Boss is here, but a pinfall loss left her farther down the Standings than usual.
