Cageside Community Wrestler Rankings, Season 11: Week 15 results & Week 16 vote

Tony Khan’s Twitter

Everybody who comes to Cageside Seats has an opinion about what's going on in pro wrestling - Wrestler Rankings 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 the Cageside Cup, given to our Performer of the Year.

This week, we’re voting on nationally televised and internet streaming pro wrestling shows that took place July 17-23 — Raw, Dark: Elevation, Dark, NXT, Dynamite, Fusion, Powerrr, NXT UK, Impact, SmackDown, Rampage, Level Up, NJPW Strong, New Japan’s G1 Climax 32 shows, ROH Death Before Dishonor, and anything else I’m forgetting.

But first, here’s the outcome of last week’s voting, and how those results changed our annual competition for the Cageside Cup.

Hey! That’s Bearcat!

  • Swerve in our Glory won AEW gold, and ran away with our latest vote.
  • A guy who doesn’t win but keeps earning our respect edged out a guy who keeps winning but in ways a lot of fans & observer think are beneath him.
  • The biggest upset in the early going of G1 32 rounded out our top five.
  • A ruthless turn for a young NXT star and just another day at the office on Raw for one of WWE’s biggest stars start the back half of our latest Rankings.
  • Which are rounded out by the interim AEW champ, one of his Blackpool Combat Club teammates, and the ROH titleholder that teammate challenged at Death Before Dishonor.
