More importantly, ever since [[Wrestling/KevinNash Diesel]] threw Wrestling/BretHart through it at the 1995 ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries'', as a rule, the table gets demolished by a wrestling move at least once a pay-per-view. It has been confirmed that, unlike the English team's, the table is specially designed to collapse upon impact (something that Wrestling/MickFoley credits with saving his life when Wrestling/TheUndertaker famously threw him onto it from the top of the Hell in the Cell cage during their 1998 King of the Ring match). Presumably, [[CListFodder it gets targeted]] so as not to interrupt the flow of the more lucrative English commentary. Kind of a wrestling in-joke, it has gotten to the point where if a wrestler seems to be setting up for a move on the regular announcers table (such as [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] in his match against Wrestling/ChrisJericho at the 2002 ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble''), he will be directed instead to the other one. Wrestling/CMPunk also {{lampshade|Hanging}}d this during the time he was on commentary; when Wrestling/JohnCena put Wrestling/HeathSlater through the English table he was sitting at, he reacted thusly: "This is not the Spanish announce table!"

A ProfessionalWrestling Trope, the Spanish Announcers Table is, naturally, where the broadcasters for the [[SpanishLanguage Spanish-speaking]] audience sit to do their commentary. The one in Wrestling/{{WWE}} is currently manned by Carlos Cabrera and Marcelo Rodríguez, while the one in Wrestling/{{TNA}} is manned by Willie Urbina and Héctor Guerrero.

Of course, the Spanish announcer's table has played OTHER roles through the years ... or more specifically, the Spanish announcers. In 1987, the Islanders (a heel Polynesian tag team of [[Wrestling/{{Meng}} Haku]] and Tama) were feuding in the WWF with Latino favorite Wrestling/TitoSantana, who had publicly made several comments disapproving of Haku and Tama's badass behavior toward friend Wrestling/RickMartel. After a match, the Islanders -- along with manager [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Bobby "the Brain" Heenan]] -- walked over to the Spanish announcer's table to confront Santana and -- naturally -- beat him to within an inch of his life. Wrestling/PedroMorales (who was still with the WWF at this time) tried to assist Santana but also got beaten; an unnamed Spanish announcer (presumably the lead announcer) got shoved but nothing more happened to him before officials swarmed the area to herd Haku and Tama to the back. The Wrestling/{{TNA}} Spanish table was LAX territory during their existence, with Wrestling/{{Konnan}} serving dual roles as color commentator and wrestler. In 2012, the [[Wrestling/ThreeMB 3MB]] tag team (Wrestling/HeathSlater, Jinder Mahal and Drew [=McIntyre=]) start to mocking Carlos and Marcelo in a racist way, only to begin a feud with Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio for script reasons.
