This week, we’ll be voting on the online and nationally televised professional wrestling shows that took place from February 12-18 – rawAnd Darkness: riseAnd darkAnd NXTAnd UndergroundAnd dynamiteAnd PowererAnd impactAnd smack downAnd frenzyAnd Level upAnd NJPW is strongAnd Judicial DepartmentAnd Battle in the valleyAnd anything else I forget.
But first, here’s the result of last week’s vote, and how those results changed our annual competition for Cageside Cup.
Well done, gentlemen.
- Most of last week’s ballots appeared in the Monday-Friday promotional exchanges, with the man who participated in both taking top honors.
- Only half of a team in a historic round of the WWE Tag Championship made it to the top 10. It must have been this fist bump.
- While we’re on the topic of Tag Champs, the Ass Boys got an equal amount of love for their win in AEW. Meanwhile, in NXT which made noises about the two-time women’s title holders’ break-up, the girl who kicked her face in the door outclassed the guy who kicked her former partner’s face in the door.
- Another player who earned Bryan an Iron Man match. Whether or not the man he was chasing committed the crime, he was impressed by his confession.
