    Full impact table

  1. 1

    Purchase a large piece of plywood.

  2. 2

    Spraypaint the wood with a dark brown colour to replicate the colour of most WWE tables.

  3. 3

    Flip the table upside down. Screw in four wooden legs that should also be made out of plywood. Aluminium pipes would work also.

  4. 4

    Stand the table up to make sure it is sturdy enough to stand on its own.

  5. 5

    Use the table in the match. To make sure the table breaks correctly, have the person collide with the table in its exact centre.

    Easy breakaway table

  1. 1

    Find a premade plywood wooden table.

  2. 2

    Smash or cut through the centre of the table without breaking off or shattering too many pieces.

  3. 3

    Apply small areas of wood glue to the crack in the wood and put the table back together.

  4. 4

    Slam a wrestler through the centre of the table. It should break along the same line and the table can even be reused in future matches if not too damaged.

  5. 5

    Double-check the crack in the table to make sure that there are not any loose sharp pieces if you wish to reuse the table again.

Tips and warnings

  • Professional wrestling is a scripted and choreographed event, widely considered an exhibition and not a sport. If many of the moves performed in the wrestling ring were genuine, serious injury, including paralysis, and even death probably would result. Under no circumstances should anyone attempt these moves described in these steps. These steps are meant merely to explain how the moves are performed.
