History And Rules Of The UpUpDownDown Championship

The most prestigious title in all of WWE is without a doubt the UpUpDownDown Championship. Even Kofi Kingston, a former WWE Champion, believes this to be the case. The UpUpDownDown Championship is won on the sticks with a wrestler's game IQ put to the test.
