Damage your opponent using tables to fill their Table Break meter. Filling your opponent’s meter unlocks Table Grapples, which can put them through a table without the use of a Table Finisher. The Table Break icon indicates when a Table Grapple can be performed by pressing Down Arrow. If the opponent is leaning against a table propped in the corner, a Running Strike can also put them through the table.

MANUAL TARGETING

In WWE 2K19, Manual Targeting is enabled by default. You can switch to another target by pressing F1. Your new Target’s name will briefly appear above your Superstar’s head.
