Why isn't the title the main event?

So Gargano and Ciampa don't like each other. It's a grudge match. That's not a main event match. They aren't main event guys. Gargano can be, but Ciampa is not. Nothing in NXT has established them both as top guys where Almas and Black have. I would get it if Almas and Black had no build up and it was just a random challenger. There is a story behind this as well though. I also don't think Gargano and Ciampa can have as good of a match as Almas and Black.

It technically is. Gargano v Ciampa is unsanctioned.

Aside from that, Gargano v Ciampa is about a year in building and Gargano is arguably "the guy" in NXT.

It will be the better match with more heat. I can live with it.

The main event is the match that everyone is there to see. And that match isnít the NXT Title match.

This whole card is stacked, I doubt Gargano vs Ciampa is a deciding factor.

Unsanctioned, in a state with a sanctioning body looking over the event, where cops won't get involved and you'd just allow it to happen on a TV show...

None of it makes sense to me tbh.

Re: Why isn't the title the main event?

It was the most anticipated match on the card, had the most heat going for it, had been building for the longest time, and featured the most popular star currently in NXT in Gargano. That's why.

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.
