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 Elimination Chamber event, the Feb. 22 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday’s Impact & AEW Dark, MLW Fusion, NXT & Dynamite from Weds., Feb. 24, NJPW Strong, SmackDown & 205 Live on Friday, New Japan’s Road To Castle Attack and Castle Attack (night one) shows, NXT UK, ROH TV, and any other televised or internet streaming wrestling released from Feb. 15 - 27, 2021.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

No wonder everyone in the business watches him...

  • Weird to say it when they make up half the list, but this feels like a somewhat light showing for the black-and-gold on a TakeOver week.
  • The champ, the dude who took him to the limit, the other dude who kicked him in the face to start a hot angle, the hilarious dork who reminded us he’s a hell of a wrestler, and the big Texan with a rocket on her back make up one hell of a light showing.
  • NXT’s neighbor on the Wednesday night cable listings showed up and showed out with the return of their first Women’s champ, a lunatic getting challenged to a Deathmatch, and a lush outsmarting a carny.
  • Friday nights gave us a swinging Swiss and - Ding Dong! - the best talk show host.
  • Sorry Raw (not sorry).
