Naruto could have beaten Nagato...
Something I failed to think of until now, was when Naruto + Bee were fighting Edo Nagato< and Nagato captured Naruto and started sapping him dry... was there no reason that Naruto couldn't have started absorbing Natural energy and turned Nagato into stone frog like he did with Pain?
I know some of you will say plot no jutsu, but to me that seems like it woulda been a sure ace in the hole, plus wouldn't that have sealed Nagato too?
It wouldn't be damaging him so he couldn't revive.... just simply turning him to stone from inside out.
WHAT ya'll think?
