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. 22-28 — Raw, NXT, Powerrr, Dynamite, Impact, Fusion, SmackDown, Rampage, Level Up, Collision, the NWA’s Samhain 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.
The American Dragon may not have, but we sure missed this...
- House of Black’s big return on Collision helped its leader beat out the WWE Intercontinental champion’s latest historic week, and The Icon’s retirement announcement.
- Reclaiming the WWE Tag titles ensured The Judgment Day rounded out our latest Top Five.
- A TJ Maxx-assisted Battle Royal victory ranked a little higher than the WWE Women’s champ’s latest successful defense and a statement-making win for the future NXT Women’s titleholder.
- Der Ring General’s latest victim impressed, and helped the big man edge out a mixed week for the NJPW Strong Women’s (and Artist of Stardom) champ and AEW’s International king (and current Cageside Cup frontrunner).

The Cageside Cup Performer of the Year Standings - through the Week ending Oct. 21
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!
