Barbed wire and thumbtacks made Smarks smile

Share the joy


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 – the July 1 episode of Monday Night Raw, SmackDown & 205 Live on Tues, July 2, NXT UK & NXT and Beyond’s Uncharted Territory from Wednesday, this week’s Impact, ROH TV & MLW Fusion, Evolve 130, New Japan’s G1 Climax opener, and any other televised or internet streaming wrestling that aired from June 30 – July 6, 2019.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

He didn’t walk out of Fyter Fest looking this good…


… but he did have a smile on his face.

  • Mox and the guy he tore it with in the main event were the only two AEW reps, despite their second show wrapping shortly before voting started.
  • Maybe you were still so excited about the Philadelphia Stretcher winning his first WWE title? Or the One And Only claiming his first strap on the main roster? Or the arrival of the Black Lotus (did we mention it was an eventful week?).
  • WrestleMania 35’s two biggest stars kept their belts at Stomping Ground, and continued to earn your support.
  • The Ring General defended his UK title, and didn’t need any help from Imperium to do so.
  • Kurt Angle’s favorite heel, uh… look, you main event that often, you’re bound to pick up a Standings point somewhere.

Where an ex-Shield guy pulls in front of a forever New Day guy in the top five, but everything else remains status quo in the top ten…

Slightly slower week, but things get crazy from here on out. Lean on us for coverage of shows/promotions like Raw, NXT, SmackDown, New Japan, MLW, ROH, Evolve and the wider indie world (you are reading Sermon on the Mat, right?), or go it on your own. We don’t tell you how to keep up, or how to vote… we just tally it up and report back every Sunday.

See you in seven!
