Go To

  • Kofi Kingston. Trash talker extraordinaire. One would wonder how he could ever play a face character.
  • The 1 year anniversary video, where Austin gets cake shoved in his face by Seth Rollins (who lets out the most epic Big "NO!" Girly Scream ever when he takes the whole rest of the cake down his back). Then, Jojo Offerman shows up to eat frosting off Seth Rollins' shoulder and Summer Rae joins in eating "ground cake" (the bits not actually touching the floor, which Big E disapproves of). Rounded out by Renee Young wanting to know what all the yelling is about, then blatantly Eating the Eye Candy when she goes out of her way to walk into a shirtless Rollins (who is washing cake out of his hair).
    • Kevin Owens is only there because he thinks it'll end up on someone. Not to mention his Screw This, I'm Outta Here! departure - "I'm going back to catering".
    • Seth and Big E shrieking "JOJO! JOJO! GET IN HERE JOJO" in overlapping unison.
    • Kofi's exasperated "have some respect for yourself!" when Jojo, Summer Rae and Renee eat the ground cake.

    • Austin and E are very confused by Renee's celebratory cake-gyration, which is a bit rich coming from them:
      Austin: But why did the cake make you dance?!
    • Tyler insisting there are "three perfectly good cakes in catering" over and over again.
  • The Unboxing from Crunchyroll with Sasha Banks was pretty epic, but it also had literally the last person you expect to see on UUDD — GOLDBERG — accidentally interrupting and generally coming off as a confused-but-proud grandpa.
  • Big E and Austin attempting to drive in a car full of balloons they've bought for Kofi's birthday.
  • In an UUDD interview at the release of WWE 2K17, Brock Lesnar wants some Booty-O's. Not to mention Paul Heyman graciously allowing Austin to re-do his question, and Brock's summary of his upcoming match with Randy Orton - "Suplex City, bitch".

  • The Wrestlemania 33 livestream was just balls-to-the-wall hilarious. It's about twelve of the usual channel suspects, some of whom haven't seen each other for months because they're on separate brands (Miz and the Usos from Smackdown, everyone else from Raw). From Seth cutting a promo about the Madden tournament on an absent AJ Styles to Austin and E getting everyone to smell a tube of "Liquid Ass" (Sasha Banks's scream is epic), to the Usos making their entrance precisely when their name is drawn for the tournament, it's a fun time.
  • The "Battery Man Excuse Meter" - aka, Sami Zayn is a terrible, terrible loser. There's something in his eye! The controller is stuck! The weather is distracting him! He has a sticker on his shoe! The list goes on and on...
  • Tyler cakes Austin for the 2nd UUDD anniversary: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHY?! WHY DO I NEVER SEE THIS COMING?" Followed up by Austin running through the backstage area to tackle Tyler and rub cake frosting on his face, and have a completely casual and normal conversation with Shane McMahon.
    Austin: (with a face covered in cake) Oh hey, boss. Just gotta cake Tyler for a sec.

  • The sheer levels of screaming trash-talk between Becky Lynch and Renee Young during the Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite challenge. Even Kofi and Austin are alarmed. Later, Becky takes her plum-ishment.
  • During the London Heist episode, Cesaro name-drops DJ Hyde (indy wrestler/promoter of CZW, acknowledging the existence of which is a no-no in the WWE) and going "ooh, I said it!". Kevin Owens nearly Spit Takes his water.
    • The constant parade of wrestlers who come in to either mock Cesaro (who can't see or hear them and is basically swiping at the air and talking to himself), mark out over the VR game, or laugh themselves sick at the funny shit Cesaro is doing in the game.
  • Roman Reigns being the Only Sane Man (and only one who knows how to play) during the 4-way Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare game with him, Seth, Kofi, and Austin. The other three are screaming, being killed in the game, and trash-talking, and Roman is just calmly annihilating everything else on the screen and doing a corny "yessir" when he levels up. He does shout "AVENGE ME" when he dies in the game, but the rest of the time? Chill.
  • AJ Styles bringing back #BeatUpJohnCena in a WWE 2K17 match against Sasha Banks, who chose Cena as her player character. AJ and his fan-partner bellow it at the top of their lungs, to everyone's amusement.
    • After losing the match, AJ's punishment is to do the New Day chant, complete with booty-popping. AJ has total white-boy rhythm, and says "that's as good as it's gonna get".
  • During one episode, Austin, Tyler, and Kofi are playing in front of a very large American flag banner. Kevin Owens casually walks in, picks up the entire backdrop, and says he needs it while walking off with it.
  • Austin and Seth play WWE 2K18 (calling Seth "Cover Boy" the whole time), and have a 5-minute running commentary on the ratings of all of their friends. Highlights include a story about how no one told Cesaro that they were actually making a "Thwiss Thyborg" shirt, Seth and Austin marking out for the Natural Disasters' game entrance, and Corey Graves overusing TV Tropes favorite word, "egregious".
    • On the same episode, there's a marked look of Oh, Crap! on Seth's face when Austin asks him if he has a Snapchat — Seth doesn't, due to certain leaked photos and says, wide-eyed, "NOOOOOOO."
  • AJ Styles being the biggest Sore Loser in the company. Austin and Samoa Joe have gone on record that, on multiple occasions, AJ has refused to give up playing the longer he lost and will often throw tantrums until he gets his wins back. Of particular note is the game of Madden NFL he played against Seth Rollins. He got so worked up that he Rage Quit before finishing the game, and blamed his loss on the fact they were playing on a Playstation and not an Xbox.
    • He's never going to live down the time he broke a controller over WWE 2K16. Austin says AJ owes him a controller at the 2K17 release party. AJ's excuse?
      AJ: It slipped!
      Austin: You threw it out of the stands!
    • During the WWE x IGN eSports Showdown tournament, after AJ loses to Kofi Kingston, he breaks another controller. Which prompts Kofi to bring a fan out holding a sign that says "Hey AJ! Stop breaking the controllers!"
  • Charlotte's Superstar Savepoint has her admitting to being a Twi-hard and confessing that she had the biggest crush on Sting as a teenager.
  • Cesaro and his Hurricane of Puns running commentary during the Balor-Breeze FIFA 18 match, particularly this zinger:
    Balor: OH... sugar.
    Cesaro: I like the sugar. It's too sweet.
  • Becky Lynch petting Sheamus's head during his FIFA match with Fandango because they have a "ginger bond". Later, she has to explain to Austin what Irish tea involves while Sheamus and Fandango are still playing and yelling at the screen.
    • Apparently, Fandango hates Sheamus's voice.
  • Tyler Breeze spends most of the Balor-Crews semifinal harassing Cesaro, who gets in a couple good digs about Tyler's smaller size.
    Breeze: I can't wear a shirt like yours, I'd be swimming in a large.
    Cesaro: You'd be swimming in a medium too.
  • Noam Dar yelling at Apollo Crews "I AM YOUR DADDY!" after evening the score in the FIFA finals. Becky Lynch and Finn Bálor almost spit-take.
    • Later, Dar pretends to dial a phone on his controller and asks Apollo's parents if he's allowed to come home after losing so badly.
    • Balor snarking "he's not having a baby!" after Sheamus starts chanting "one more push, Crews".
  • Charlotte (and Mojo Rawley) takes on Natalya (and Rusev) in a non-tournament game of Madden 18. While Rusev and Mojo's trash-talking is as heated as you'd expect, Charlotte no-selling Nattie's trash-talk and lame attempts at WOO-ing and breaking out a Flair strut after she scores are great.
    • Austin takes over as Nattie's coach, so Rusev decides to take over channel hosting, giving Austin's usual "WELCOME TO UP UP DOWN DOWN I'M YOUR BOY AUSTIN CREED" spiel and mocking The New Day's trombone chant.
  • AJ comes close to destroying yet another controller in the Street Fighter V: Arcade best-of-three tournament, but the real winner is Kofi Kingston's victory dancing, including twerking into the camera.
  • Austin got the loser of the Madden tournament a "you tried" sticker. Curtis Axel is a pretty good sport about it.
  • AJ Styles has been given the best Christmas present EVER - "Six Days of Smashing", where he'll be allowed to destroy a series of things to release his anger. In order, he smashes an Xbox controller, an Atari 2600 controller, an Atari Jaguar controller, a Sega Saturn controller, a Colecovision remote, and not the NES Advantage because it's too sentimental. The highlight of each video is him screaming over bad memories of the system, turning his hat backwards like he's Ash Ketchum, and putting on safety goggles (or forgetting to put them on) before he starts annihilating the thing. Oh, and Austin's in a Santa outfit, because why not?
    • Austin actually sobs over AJ destroying the Sega Saturn controller, complete with black and white sad music montage.
    • Episode 5 has a bunch of amusing credits involving varying Superstars' jobs ("Master of Hugs Pogo", "Madden Afficionado The Champ", "Master Excuse Maker Battery Man", etc).
  • In the most recent, massive Unboxing episode, Ojo gave everyone custom projector docks for the Switch. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Rusev's has a picture of him stomping a Goomba.
    • Baron Corbin busting out a "WHAT IS THIS?" for his Ojo and shrieking like a small child while opening it. He then orders the camera guys to "make it glow!".
    • Seth expecting the box to explode on him. (To be fair, this has happened to him before, so one can't blame him for being paranoid.)
    • Akira Tozawa basically turning into the Hulk trying to open the box and freaking out like a kid on Christmas morning.
  • The Superstar Invitational for WWE 2K18 is basically an excuse to get a bunch of these nerds together, trash-talk about wrestling, and scream a lot.
    • Everyone losing it when Big E screams at the top of his lungs for his introduction.
    • Miz's (and the rest of the gang's) reaction to Asuka beating his character up for the first part of their game is pretty funny because everyone wants to see Miz go down. The whole group boos Miz when he wins, even when he gives Asuka a congratulatory hug.
    • In the Fandango vs. Breeze match, the randomizer character picks are hilarious: Fandango gets Seth Rollins (and immediately apologizes to the actual Rollins for probably losing), and Breeze gets Fandango. It throws real-Fandango off and he keeps repeating "what just happened here, I don't know who I am".
    • Miz's near-Spit Take reaction to being told he has a "dad bod", and the rest immediately dubbing him "Dad Bod" instead of "Moneymaker". He also shrieks in horror once he realizes that he's ranked 87 in the game and Seth's ranked 92.
    • The captions on the Miz vs. Rollins video explaining Miz's Blatant Lies ("currently a Dad, congrats!", "absolutely user error", "these statements are false").
  • During the Team Harper (Bludgeon Brother Luke Harper & his son plus Big E) vs. Team Anderson (Karl Anderson and two of his sons), Harper's son Brodie steals the entire video.
  • Samoa Joe vs Jimmy Uso on Tekken 7 is a two-parter, full of staggering amounts of trash-talking and banter. Austin (in his Burr 1800 shirt) just sits back and giggles during the entire thing.
    • While Jimmy kicks ass on the first two rounds, Joe absolutely demolishes him in the third, and then yells "can we get a broom? We got a big mess over here!".
    • Joe actually cuts one of his WWE-style prosaic and long-winded promos, reminding us that this absolute badass is also a giant frickin' nerd.
      Joe: Are you aware of how this works? Among the devilish combos and sinful attacks that are just chained together for no good reason, the power game is true and righteous. It rains down upon thee with righteous fury! It is what it is, in every incarnation, and undeniable in its facets! ... The power game is not something that wants to be different, it wants to be new. It wants to be your friend! And that is how the power game works, it righteously STRIKES DOWN WITH THE FURY OF A MILLION MILLION HANDS!... Do you believe in the power game? Do you believe? Because I do, I am a believer.
  • Mia Yim and Shelton Benjamin bring their long-running social media rivalry to UUDD during MYC Week. Shelton kicks Austin off the show, and initiates ten minutes of he and Mia dragging each other over pretty much everything.
    Mia: My nickname is "The Blasian Baddie". You don't have a cool nickname.
    Shelton: Yes, I do. It's the "Gold-"
    Mia: The "Gold Standard"? Whatever happened to that? I don't see no gold.
    Shelton: (to Austin laughing in the background) This is why I call her "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Black Girl".
    • Her new gaming nickname is "Shelty Slayer".
  • In the lead-up to NXT TakeOver: WarGames II, Xavier announced the WWE vs NXT League of Legends match, with famous LoL players/streamers Imaqtpie and Tyler1 continuing their long-time rivalry at the heads of two teams of wrestlers. For the most part the wrestlers pick LoL champions that closely match their own wrestling character... for the most part. So Team NXT under Tyler1 features Adam Cole on Draven, Dakota Kai on Miss Fortune, Shayna Baszler on Illaoi and Johnny Gargano on... Poppy...? Meanwhile Imaqtpie's main roster team features Cesaro on Sion, Tyler Breeze on Ezreal, Ruby Riott on Vi and Seth Rollins on... Teemo?!
    • During the match itself, the NXT team completely steamroll the WWE team, largely because Seth is absolutely terrible. Dakota absolutely slaughters him in midlane from start to finish, although Seth wasn't helped by Imaqtpie telling him during practice to "Just run it down mid all game". Cesaro was really miffed by the result, as he'd put in a lot of practice in the leadup to the match, only for the rest of his team to let him down.
  • Creed has a series of videos of himself, Adam Cole, Tyler Breeze, and Cesaro playing Uno. In the third video Cesaro wound up with fifty cards in his hand.
  • DaParty (Xavier Woods, Cesaro and Adam Cole) vs BREStart (Mia Yim, Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, and Dakota Kai), playing Push the Button is funny already, due to the inevitable trash-talking and affectionate insults between the teams, but Adam Cole's complete existential crisis over maybe being an alien and hatred of drawing are both hysterical.
    • The dolphin censor gets a workout as everyone forces Cole to draw pretty much any chance they get.
    • The actual alien is Woods, who requests "everyone please exit my spaceship!" in a booming voice as the rest are pushed out the airlock.
