(note: This Mox/King/Bucks match is prob my most “controversial” cut, not that anybody gives a tin shit what I think. But some people thought this match was an all-time classic and would strongly disagree that it’s not in the top 121 this year. Some thought it was, shall we say, self-indulgent? Maybe a little bit boring? 15 minutes too long? I am obv in the latter camp. Still great though.)
