On the latest episode of the New Day Feel The Power podcast WWE stars Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston speak about Woods’ UpUpDownDown Youtube gaming channel, where Kingston calls the UUDD championship the “realest title in the game.”

WOODS: Kofi lost and wasn’t the UpUpDownDown Champion going into Mania when he was wrestling Daniel Bryan, the most important match of his career. He’s texting me at 2 AM trying to figure out, ‘Hey, can I come over and we can go to Mikaze’s to challenge for the UpUpDownDown Championship.
