Becky Lynch keeps leading the Women’s Evolution

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 – WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV), the Sept. 17 episode of Monday Night Raw, Tuesday’s SmackDown, 205 Live, Lucha Underground, NXT, the Mae Young Classic & ROH TV from Wednesday, Thursday’s Impact Wrestling, New Japan’s Destruction in Beppu*, and any other internet streaming wrestling that aired from Sept. 16 – 22, 2018.

Make YOUR mark, smarks!

In a week where ballots were split, go with the hot hand…


… or should we say, STRAIGHT FIRE.

  • She wasn’t even champ yet, but the Badlass led the charge for in another good week for WWE’s ladies. She just edged out SAnitY’s Twisted Sister, who fought to a double countout with The EST, who tied with the trailblazer on the Raw commentary team… and KO. Does that make him an honorary member of the Women’s Evolution?
  • Last week’s Standings were obviously decided on a happier Rusev Day.
  • The fifth battle between the Best Bout Machine and the Stone Pitbull in Hiroshima lived up to the hype.
  • He couldn’t take down Cien, but he made it on TV another week. That was what’s up for y’all.
  • Some of you had fond recollections of Unca Joe reading you bedtime stories.

Where Bex padded her lead, and a couple nice Canadian boys displaced Velveteen Dream from the Top Ten…

Sift through the week that was – Hell in a Cell, Raw, Smackdown, NXT, the MYC, Lucha Underground, Impact, New Japan*, Ring of Honor and the indies. We like to use Kyle Decker’s Weekly Viewing Guide when our shovel breaks (or ask Triple H, but he doesn’t like to lend his out).

Anyway, you know the drill. You click and type. We count and compile. See you next Sunday.

* Destruction in Kobe will probably be in the books by the time many of you read this, but technically happened after our cut-off.
