About
A universally loathed, hellish cry for help that usually looks like the death throes of a remote-control helicopter before it runs out of batteries, the wolf turn 2.5 was downgraded following 2016, likely in a well-meaning effort to protect us from its terribleness. Of course, this will not serve to eradicate the wolf turn, only encourage more people to attempt the triple. Joy.
