Up Up Down Down is a YouTube show hosted by WWE Superstar Xavier Woods under his indie name Austin Creed, where he and several other WWE personalities sit down to play games as well as discuss stuff that goes on behind the cameras sometimes.

Each person that comes onto the show has their own unique gamertag, or nickname they're known by when playing games.

Series Tropes:

  • Accent Relapse: During their game of NHL 95, Edge and Christian's Canadian accents became much more noticeable, particularly Edge's.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: The losers of many of these challenges get some form of punishment from doing the Cinnamon Challenge, eating four hot peppers, or getting chopped across the stomach. In one notable example, Heath Slater managed to avoid getting his punishment for losing in Street Fighter IV, leaving Jimmy Uso (who lost a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to Mikaze) to get hit by tennis balls. When confronted, Heath invoked "trial by combat" and fought Jimmy again in SFIV, but lost and took a second punishment.

  • Crossover: The League of Legends WWE vs NXT event was a full-blown cooperative event with Riot Games, with the two teams recording the match in Riot's LCS (League Championship Series) studio in front of a live crowd, with actual Riot staff providing commentary and interviews. The relationship continued in 2019 when Austin and Cesaro (who was the player who most got into the game) went backstage and appeared as guest commentators during China's LPL playoffs.
  • Curbstomp Battle: The Madden 16 tournament had its share of blowout scores, though the finale to this is Seth Rollins beating Jack Swagger 42-10.
    • Breeze against Saxton in ping-pong was a horrendous beating for Saxton: 11-1.
    • Generally tends to be the case in certain fighting games in which Xavier and Kofi are the most dominant at.
    • The League of Legends Team WWE vs. Team NXT Showmatch saw Team NXT completely and utterly steamroll Team WWE, largely due to Seth Rollins being an absolutely atrocious feeder (getting completely dumpstered by Dakota Kai in midlane and dying 15 times).note 
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Some superstars tend to appear in the background before making an official appearance. Actual cameos are made by some backstage personnel and part-timers (like referee John Cone, producer Billy Kidman and Goldberg, who wandered in a Crunchyroll BTS skit by Xavier and Sasha Banks).
  • Lampshade Hanging: Kevin Owens being the only one not shocked by Seth caking Austin during the one-year anniversary.
    Owens: Like, weren't you just on Raw talking about how it's a rule that whenever there's a cake, it's gonna end up in someone's face?
  • Large Ham: Everyone. It's expected when you've got so many people from WWE involved!
  • Line-of-Sight Name: When Sami Zayn was asked to make up a nickname, he panicked and named himself after the first thing he saw, a pack of batteries.
  • Never My Fault: Sami Zayn made every excuse he could think of to explain away his loss to Neville in FIFA 17. There was even a running tally of his excuses!
  • No Indoor Voice:
    • Austin, all the time.
    • If Seth, Sheamus and/or Cesaro aren't concentrating on playing, they're definitely this.
    • The reigning champion of this has to be The Miz. Dive for your volume button when this guy's around. And then there's the episode where he competed against the aforementioned Seth...
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Damien Sandow's specialty when he's on the scene.
  • Signing-Off Catchphrase: "Keep it tight!"
  • Tournament Arc: The locker room's yearly Madden tournament, whose defending champion for the last three years has been Seth Rollins. When the tournament was brought to the channel, Rollins successfully defends his title against Jack Swagger in 2015, and AJ Styles in 2016.
    • 2017 marked Seth's shocking defeat by Jason Jordan. It's finally been Kofi Kingston's year to win the thing.
    • The FIFA tournament looks to be a new arc. Last year's victor was Rusev, this year the trophy went to Noam Dar.
  • Un-person: The Smackdown Vs Raw 2006 series has select characters turned off due to the WWE not wanting to showcase them, including Chris Benoit.
