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 July 2-8 — Raw, NXT, Powerrr, Dynamite, Impact, Fusion, SmackDown, Rampage, Level Up, Collision, and everything else I’m no doubt forgetting (tough week, but that’s the way the wrestling scheduling gods made it).
But first, here’s the outcome of last week’s voting, and how those results changed our annual competition for the Cageside Cup.
He did that.
- And that — being the first person to pin the Tribal Chief in three years — helped our Dawg run away with a very competitive week.
- The women’s Money in the Bank winner came closest, followed by a group that included the winners of Forbidden Door’s big singles matches and the men’s Money in the Bank winner.
- A guy who was screwed out of one of the AEW x NJPW wins starts the back half of our latest Top 10, with a pair of fan favorites with different attitudes behind him.
- Winning a 12 woman steel cage match and sharing a moment with your tag partner was worth slightly more than attacking your tag partner mid-title match and getting a surprise title match in your hometown.

The Cageside Cup Performer of the Year Standings - through the Week ending July 1
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!
