This ain’t Mickie James’ Last Rodeo


Impact Wrestling

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 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 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 Jan. 15-21 — Raw, Dark: Elevation, Dark, NXT, Dynamite, Fusion, Powerrr, Impact, SmackDown, Rampage, Level Up, NJPW Strong, and anything else I’m forgetting.

But first, here’s the outcome of last week’s voting, and how those results changed our annual competition for the Cageside Cup.

  • Hard To Kill might have wrapped up her Last Rodeo, but after claiming the Knockouts title for the fifth time, Hardcore Country proved she has a lot left in the tank.
  • The Intercontinental champion turned Braun Strowman’s chest into ground beef, and the former Ms. Riott turned the internet into an even bigger war zone than normal with her crimson mask.
  • Judgement Day’s big man was an iron man in Raw’s tag team gauntlet, and the Panama City Playboy is back, BAY BAY.
  • The Honorary Uce didn’t win his big match like the two AEW stars behind him in our latest Rankings did, but we’ll tune in to see what those three gents are doing any time.
  • AEW’s Cinnabon-loving rising star got points for delivering a classic with the Dragon, edging out a (possibly poll troll-driven) return to NXT for the Modern Day Maharaja.
