But first, here’s the result of last week’s vote, and how those results changed our annual competition for Cageside Cup.
you love her! You really like her!
- Well, maybe we should say that enough of you would have loved to take it off Ronda Rousey to make her No. 1?
- The (partially deposed) King of Television made an impression by playing barber after the match. The man who appeared after Wardlow’s haircut got a few points as well.
- All but one of the men in the past SmackDown The 2022 main event earned a spot, and the man eliminated wasn’t the one who only wrestled for a few seconds.
- A late-year candidate earned a couple of top-10 spots, even if some major spots (cough, cough) didn’t even cover the World of Stardom classic.
- Ninth place went to a guy who talked in the Hangman and hung out with Martins, and tenth to one I started thinking of as Mr. frenzy.
