If WWE insisted on direct competition, it was always going to be NXT, at least at first. Put Raw or SD against AEW and you run the risk of a chunk being taken out of the TV rating for one of your long-running shows.

NXT, on the other hand, is in a win-win situation from a ratings standpoint. If NXT wins, then AEW is clearly second-rate. If AEW wins, then who cares? It's only WWE's third brand anyway.

I'm confident that was WWE's thinking going in, and it makes sense.

Maybe, but it's not like they're above bad/stupid finishes either. Wasn't that Gargano/Cole cage match finish embarrassing to anybody else? I remember the Bayley/Sasha iron man match one was stupid as hell too. Hell, didn't him and Gargano basically repeat the same ending (thematically) to two of their matches in a row? Gargano consumed by vengeance lets his emotion get the best of him and loses? Alright, we get it.

I know none of this is remotely close to the Hell in the Cell ending, but it's still all sincerely dumb, and completely unsatisfying.
