He was the man when he left cruiser, that's just how it is. It wasn't a great division just like the HW division isn't great, but he went to France and beat the man at cruiser to become the man...there wasn't much talent left in the division after he had beaten the other champs. He held 3 alphabelt belts and the Ring belt in his division, something that doesn't happen too often these days.
He could have stayed in a poor division and remained the man to this day, but he chose to go to HW instead.
