World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced this morning that one of its most legendary and resilient performers, the Spanish announce table, will be inducted into the company’s illustrious Hall of Fame.
The table is regarded as one of the great “unsung heroes” of professional wrestling — rarely hogging the spotlight but always willing to take a serious “bump” for the sake of an exciting match.
The announce table will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this April, alongside The Ultimate Warrior, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and multiple-time titleholder Vacant.
A press release issued today by WWE states that “the Spanish announce table has sacrificed itself countless times to thrill fans, and to crucially slow the descent of falling bodies.”
Fellow Hall of Famer Mick Foley tweeted his support of the induction: “Thank you, Table, for making sure that fall from the Hell in a Cell only maimed me instead of killing me. #TableForWWEHoF”
It is not yet known whether the Table will deliver a speech at the Hall of Fame ceremony, given that it is an inanimate wooden object — but that didn’t stop Donald Trump from delivering a speech.
