Re: Why isn't the title the main event?
The title shouldn't always main event. The main event should be the biggest selling point, and most times, it should be the title, but there are exceptions, and in this case, that was Gargano vs Ciampa. Gargano is NXT's Daniel Bryan. It had the longest build, it had the most heat, and it had the most potential to be the best match, which it was.
Furthermore, storyline wise, it would've made no sense for this to be in the middle of the show, because it's unsanctioned. The way that I read the storyline, and I missed the entrances and the hype packages for Gargano vs Ciampa, so I don't know if they explicitly said this, they didn't during the match, as far as I'm concerned, Aleister Black vs Andrade "Cien" Almas was the official main event. Gargano vs Ciampa was not licensed, therefore it was not officially part of the show. That's why it had to be on last, because from an official capacity, the show had already ended.
