A Tables match is a match in which to win a wrestler must put their opponent through a table—that is, a wrestler must use some offensive maneuver on their opponent that causes them to contact and break the table.
Tables matches can be contested with tag team, under both elimination and one "fall" rules. A more "extreme" version, the Flaming Table match requires the tables be set aflame before an opponent is put through it for it to count towards a win. Another variation is the two out of three tables match. There is also another type called the three table showdown which can only be won when one wrestler puts his opponent through three tables but it does not have to be at the same time.
