Mess? Thats alliance talk.
Garrosh says the horde wants war, Thrall says he wants peace, they settle it through dueling. The person who puts their heart into it the most wins. This isn't like having your future king tutored and brainwashed by Onyxia (that's a mess), this is simply bi-partisan politics and two conflicting views in a council of war. something The Horde has always enjoyed as a very stable system.
Thrall is more of a mentor to Garrosh than an opponent and as far as Horde leadership goes, Ogrim told Thrall they couldn't free the orcs and was defeated in a duel in the same exact manner as Thrall was, then he assisted and mentored Thrall briefly before dying and making Thrall leader of the Horde. there was no mess there. he challenged a the strong-willed youngster to motivate him and then gave him the resources to do what he needed to do.
