Kinda unusual they would show Britt Baker on camera and acknowledge her no?

HHH addressed it in his post-show Press Conference.  According to him it was nothing more than a strange coincidence as the director in the truck told the cameraman to get a shot of someone looking shocked in the crowd and he ended up focusing on Britt.  Ranallo was then told to address who she was so things didn't look funny with them doing that and not acknowledging her.

Why was she sat in the crowd anyway if she didn’t want to be spotted? She’s good friends with a lot of the NXT talent so surely it would have been possible to watch backstage? Seems either a bit petty from NXT to show her on camera or a bit sloppy from her to be in a position to be spotted in the crowd the rival promotion. Supporting a partner or not.

She’s been there before and shown on camera. It seems the only people that care are fans that want to make a big deal out of something so trivial.

Rhea Ripley had a standout week really, didn't she?  She and Keith Lee have broken through as legit stars now.

In fact, that's my takeaway from the whole last couple of weeks.  NXT has legitimately broken through as a proper third brand, its stars are treated on a par with those on the other shows.  In fact, you could argue it has the hottest roster in WWE right now.  The presentation of the NXT wrestlers was so much cooler than the other brands, generally.

And Survivor series, being a 3 way thing, now has that frisson that they always wanted, where the clash of stars from different brands feels really exciting.  They need to now keep everyone separate again until at least the Rumble.

Knowing WWE, The Royal Rumble will probably have a NXT rumble on the show now, and Wrestlemania will have the three NXT titles defended.

That was SUCH a dick move in hindsight.

Didn't he say he was hoping he would be fired from it though? Was towards the end of his run with the company and they were being booked horribly.

Regardless they knew what they were doing

Yeh, I can't believe they didn't make the Highlanders world champions on their debut with a 2 year long undefeated streak.  Buried, they were.
