According to the official synopsis, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune welcomes celebrities to spin the world's most famous Wheel and solve puzzles for a chance to win more than $1 million. All of the money won by the celebrity contestants will go to a charity of their choice. This episode's celebrity contestants include Kate Flannery (playing for Philabundance), Steve Agee (playing for Make-A-Wish) and Austin Creed (playing for Gamers Outreach)." Flannery is known for her work on The Office, and Agee is known for his work on The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.

Woods stays busy in and out of the ring. Along with teaming with Kofi Kingston on WWE SmackDown, Woods has different projects that involve either wrestling or gaming.

"Multiple versions of this have been in the works since I started UpUpDownDown," Woods told our sister site ComicBook.com. "I've always felt that there is a similar resonance in the wrestling space if you're a fan, and the gaming space if you're a fan. I feel like we all had to fight through certain things, through like our senior years of high school, or through being a junior, and 'Oh, you still watch wrestling,' or 'Oh, you still play video games,' and then when you get on the other side, those nerds went through the same exact fight and now we're adult nerds, and all the stuff is, lo and behold, popular now." Woods has been with WWE since 2010. In his career, the 36-year-old has won the Raw Tag Team Championship four times and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship seven times as a member of the New Day with Kingston and Big E.
