WWE Superstar Notches Guinness World Record for Gaming Channel

Xavier Woods' YouTube show, UpUpDownDown, just knabbed the Guinness World Record for Most Subscribed to Celebrity Video Gaming Channel. The show is currently has over 1.6 million subscribers.

The UpUpDownDown show has made history as the Most Subscribed-to Celebrity Video Gaming Channel in the Guinness World Records.

The WWE shared the news earlier today on their website with a photo of the show's host, wrestler Xavier Woods. The series, which began in 2015, shows the wrestling star playing and talking about video games with wrestlers like his fellow members of the New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingson), Sasha Banks, Tyler Breeze, and Bayley, along with other special guests. It's since gained over 1.6 million subscribers, leading to the world record feat.

Woods, who collected his plaque at the Insomnia Gaming Festival in Birmingham, U.K., also went to Twitter to share his excitement about the award.

"What is life?!? 😭 WE GOT A WOLRD RECORD FOR @UpUpDwnDwn !" read the tweet from his real-life persona, Austin Creed.

The WWE also sent him a congratulatory tweet, which he aptly responded to with a crying emoji.

But Woods/Creed isn't the year's only celebrity Guinness record holder. Back in May, Snoop Dogg earned one by crafting a huge cup of gin and juice. As for other wrestlers, Guinness says Shockwave Impact Wrestling holds the record for the longest wrestling match at 12 hours.
