So yes, he did get dissed in that fight. Kishimoto dissed him by showing that he's so much of a tool, that someone else can literally get better result than him when using his body.

Rather, Nagato showed to be powerful. It can be interpreted as Nagato not being at his best in mind and body to be beaten. He wasn't paying attention to Itachi at all, just to the jinchuuriki who got owned. Itachi was able to do better because Nagato wasn't focusing on him, so I don't think Nagato was made to look that bad. It was three against one, and his only advantage in fights is his body, if you don't count the mystery of Rin'negan.
Naruto got the worse end as he was made to look stupid. He's socially stupid, not in combats.
Here Kabuto is having the flashback as if he can see what is happening. Which means Nagato was a tool in practically every sense of the word.
