You know, what the business has been about ever since ever.
Amen! If a guy who has not worked for your promotion full time for last eight years is still a bigger crowd puller than all the guys you could bring up and groom in the meantime, it surely tells you two things; The comeback guy deserves the title for being relevant and a "draw" and you have failed in building up a proper replacement guy to fill up that top spot in eight years in terms of bringing in the money and the crowd.
After all it is business that is being run and the belt should be where the money is (one of the reasons why Hogan was brought back and given the title from Yokozuna, him being a bigger "draw" than Hart at that time); A face that brings in the crowd or the Heel that the crowd pays to see lose, All in my humble and immaterial opinion.
