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 five performers you think entertained or impressed the most in the last week, and feel free to talk about why.
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 Oct. 15-21 — Raw, NXT, Powerrr, Dynamite, Impact, Fusion, SmackDown, Rampage, Level Up, Collision, Battle of the Belts VIII, Impact’s Bound for Glory PPV, and everything else I’m no doubt forgetting.
But first, here’s the outcome of last week’s voting, and how those results changed our annual competition for the Cageside Cup.
Becoming a three-time champ with eyes full of spray paint? HOLY SHIDA!
- He didn’t win, but everybody was talking about the man in second for holding his own with in the ring with the Tribal Chief (who also placed in his return to SmackDown).
- Right behind them was a Father Figure who had another strong week in AEW, a dude who does care about being International champion after all, and a Timeless star of
PiP commercialssilent films.
- The men in the midst of an epic NXT title feud outshined the show’s many guest stars, and finished just in front of the 21 year old who just became Stardom’s new High Speed champ.
- His Pretty Deadly partner got some votes too, but I guess he just wasn’t #EltonStrong.

Ready to do it again? You can always check the “how to” here if you need it, or ask a question in the comments. The main things you need to know are you have five spots on your ballot, you can’t put the same person in two of them, but you can split a single or multiple spots between multiple wrestlers. Now...
Let’s have those ballots! We’ll take it from there, and see you back here in a week for the results and another vote!
