First rule of DDT: Learn and accept the fans don't like Takeshita. And do it quickly. https://t.co/jvYClhZ6X6

@davidbix Looks awful. What is Takeshita jumping at exactly?

From my very select cherry picking Peter Pan was a very good show especially Endo vs Takeshita and Akito vs Asuka.

@librarianbikes Since it's a free service, I don't think they really need to be held accountable, but a little transparency would be nice.

A fan was clapping when the video hit the part where Brookes said Takeshita is boring and has no personality
