Even in the 80's Vince was putting gimmicks on talent that was mostly formed elsewhere, from Rick Martel and Curt Hennig in the AWA - all he did was call them a Model and a Perfect one... but they were formed... Rock had his heritage already there, all Vince could do was use it and let him try and grow into something else. Vince has yet to create one bona-fide talent that he has taken from stage one to super-stardom... The nearest I can think is Muhammed Hassan, and we all know how that turned out...
Without Vince, Austin does not have him as his number one enemy. So saying Vince never created a star is bullshit.
