Xavier Woods created UpUpDownDown in 2015 and it has become its own universe in the gaming and WWE world with over two million subscribers.
Tyler Breeze is a big part of the channel as Woods' foe in Battle of the Brands, one-fourth of DaParty, and the reigning LeftRightLeftRight Champion.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Breeze discussed Woods' vision for the channel and how it's helped others get over.
"It kind of goes that way. That was the goal for me and Creed when were started doing that stuff. When he started UpUpDownDown, I had no clue how to stream or how to do YouTube. He figured it out and we slowly did what we did. As we went, we know the deal. Obviously, you're not going to wrestle until you're 45 or 50, eventually, you're going to say, 'I've had enough' or your body is going to say 'I've had enough.' We were like, 'We had to build our value outside the ring' because, in reality, we are expendable when we get to a certain point. Even if you don't get to a certain point, you can get released at any time. That's just how the industry is. Building our value outside the ring is always a massive goal for us. Luckily, UpUpDownDown has done wonders for that. Creed is awesome with that because he'll take guys that you only know from matches and maybe they don't get to talk a lot and you don't know their personality. Creed puts them in a spot where you see their personality and you go, 'Woah, I wanna see more of that guy, he's cool and seems like a good guy.' Maybe the only place you see that is UpUpDownDown. Not only is he building his own stock, but he's helping everyone around him. It's not only just for him. As many people as he can help, he will. It's done wonders for me. If I didn't do everything I've done with UpUpDownDown that I did, I wouldn't be able to stream on Twitch or do anything outside (of wrestling) with any sort of value. I would just be another random guy to get my foot in the door. He was very adamant about building value outside the ring," said Breeze.
Despite being released by WWE on June 25, Breeze remains part of the UpUpDownDown family, even kicking Woods out of his house and keeping the LeftRightLeftRight Championship.
