Ranking all the UpUpDownDown Champions
One of WWE's best and newest belts has never been displayed on TV. It's never been featured on an episode of Raw, SmackDown Live, or even NXT. However, backstage, this latest title is creating a significant buzz.
It may be the most coveted belts in WWE today. Of course, we are talking about the UpUpDownDown Championship which is routinely defended on Xavier Woods' Youtube Channel, UpUpDownDown.
The channel itself features a whole variety of topics, from Kofi's regular videos about sneakers to interviews with Wood's and his fellow Superstars while they play video games. However, the overwhelming theme of the channel is video games. Xavier Woods frequently features other WWE Superstars in interviews, or video game tournaments.
In the UpUpDownDown Universe, the greatest prize is the UpUpDownDown championship. The title is defended at any time and any place just like the 24/7 title. It can be challenged for by any wrestler or non-wrestling WWE personality, though they have usually been on UpUpDownDown before.
The general manager of the division, Xavier Woods, picks the game for each title match, except for every 5th defence where the challenger picks the game. Woods often makes up rules on the fly, adding in extra challenges and rounds as he sees fit
The title belt was first unveiled by Xavier Woods on his Youtube channel on July 2018. So far the champions have included Mikaze, Jack Gallagher, Kofi Kingston, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Samoa Joe, and the current Champion Seth Rollins.
Superstars like Buddy Murphy, Shelton Benjamin, Big E, Rusev, and The Miz have challenged for the title. While AJ Styles, Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin, Cesaro, Sheamus, Mike, and Maria Kanellis, all participating in either the tournament to crown the inaugural champion or the No. 1 contender's tournament.
#7 Jey Uso
Jey Uso, nicknamed Jucey, knocked off WWE Champion Kofi Kingston for the title. Jey made it to the final 5 of the original tournament only to be eliminated in the first round of the finals in the Gang Beasts challenge.
Jey's next challenge for the belt would come during a tour WWE did of Europe. During their Helsinki leg of the tour, Jey Uso challenged the champion and Woods picked Tetris Challenge.
Jey Uso won the battle in a clean sweep, easily casting aside Kofi Kingston and ending his reign as a double champion.
Jey's reign didn't even make it past the first title defense. In Stockholm, Jey was challenged by his brother and tag team partner Jimmy Uso for his first title defence.
Jey, clearly stung by the sudden challenger emerging from within his bloodline was completely blindsided. Wood's selected NeoGeo game King of Fighters. Jimmy got off to a great start winning the first round in a clean sweep.
Jey bounced back in the second round to send his first title defense to a tie-breaker round. Jimmy got off to an early advantage in the final round and maintained it to win the title.
