It doesn't matter, it's who fits at the time, as I mentioned in an earlier response, I think people think it matters more than it does, it's not as important as what you think, it's what's right, or at least what feels right to you.
For example, I love Dean and I love Kevin Owens, Dean has been on the roster longer than Owens and has worked his ass off, but do I feel he should have the title now, no, I feel Kevin Owens should, and why .... for reasons explained here :

I think he'd pick up perfectly where Seth left off, except he could be more of a lone ranger as opposed to lining with the authority, cause he fights for himself, not for them ... which could frustrate them in the storyline too, Owens knows what to say, when to say, he's such a natural and him having the title to pick up where Seth left off, I feel personally, would be the best fit and that he would carry it well.
Sure, we can say he'd need to drop the IC title first ... but then again, would he? .... I think this could play to his character and boost him up more, he's a prize fighter after all and he's proved it by winning all the titles, then of course someone can come in and annihilate him for the IC or something, Sheamus maybe (even if they are both heels), I think Owens really would be the absolute best choice to continue where Seth left off ... but from a different angle, yet still keeping the same feel of a heel with the title.
It's the best choice right now and this whole thing about how long a talent has been on the WWE roster, isn't as important as some people think.
I do feel that Dean should have a title reign at some point, but right now, Owens is the right fit to pick up where Seth left off, and that's what it is basically, plus I think he'll carry it well.
How long they've been on the roster isn't really that important, there are talents that are on there, that's been on years that you'd still say, not really, in regards to them having the title, it's about the timing and the right fit basically.
That's my feelings on it anyway.
