One of the coolest new YouTube acts on the web is a series of unique gaming content hosted by WWE superstar Xavier Woods. He goes by the handle of Austin Creed when doing the YouTube content on a channel called UpUpDownDown. He has a number of guests on and plenty of interviews with WWE superstars in the process. The latest episode features the “Boss” Sasha Banks, as they cooperatively beat the crap out of bad guys in the old SNES Sailor Moon game that’s available on the PS4.
The interesting thing about Superstar Savepoint is that Creed asks the wrestlers about a lot of their interests outside of the ring all while they play Sailor Moon. You can check out the video below from UpUpDownDown.
Banks talks about attending online school by the time she hit seventh grade due to her younger brother getting abused in school due to his disabilities. She developed a love for Asian movie culture that she refers to as “Asian fever”.
The duo rattle off a number of cool South Korean films that most movie buffs have seen, ranging from Oldboy to The Chaser to I Saw The Devil. Sadly, no mention of The Man From Nowhere (personal favorite).
Banks talks about delving deep into anime when she was younger and the reason she likes playing the SNES classic is because she used to get up early in the morning (or sometimes not sleep at all) to watch the cartoon, which used to come on at odd hours, somewhere between 6:00am and 7:30am during weekdays. After the show garnered a lot of popularity I remember them moving it to after-school times around 3:00pm and they tag-teamed it with Dragon Ball Z and Samurai Pizza Cats at one point.
They also roll out a few of their favorite animes; Banks notes that School Rumble is one of her favorites along with Attack On Titan. According to Banks she’s rewatched School Rumble about “20 times”.
Near the end of the session Creed asks Sasha “The Boss” Banks what she’s looking forward to playing and watching next. She leaves it up to her fans to decide for her, asking them to tweet at her what she should dive into next.
The series recently breached the 200,000 subscriber mark and they’re well on their way to a quarter million. They hit 100,000 just a few months ago, so they’re growing at a rapid rate. It’s funny but within a year’s time there may be more subscribers to UpUpDownDown than the WWE Network.
Anyway, the content is pretty cool on the channel and offers gamers and wrestling fans alike a look back at classic titles and new-school releases as well. It’s definitely worth checking out.
