Satellite loop verses static frame

What was your classification of this frame? In spite of deeper blue not around eye, i'd be shocked if winds were not at least 85 knots.
I think the already well developed hurricane is "ingesting" a predominantly mid level "remnant" circulation from a separate weakened cyclone
A vort max would rotate closer to the eye. A separate cyclone would disrupt the hurricane's inflow yet isn't here.
no clear detached band, yet compact nature of system here might indicate slightly stronger intensity under CDO within cold cloud tops
