After years of bad decisions, mismanagement, and never transitioning to a new generation of talent that all end up catching WCW really all at once, because things started going bad they didn't stop going bad. From Starrcade 1997 to Starrcade 1998 to The Giant & Chris Jericho leaving to Bret Hart's career ending injury to The Radicalz leaving so when they tried to save it and change things they were really just beating a dead horse.
Fact is for those who may not know on April 10, 2000 the WCW went through in many ways one last change in power, but that change only lasted a couple of months. As on April 10 it was the first time that Eric Bischoff & Vince Russo would try to work together to save the WCW. On that edition of Nitro it was also the night that WCW was re-launched and all the titles were vacated. This night saw the formation of The New Blood, who were lead by Bischoff & Russo; the stable consisted of talent that had been held down by the company and never really given a fair chance to be something. This stable and this direction for the company lasted about 3 months flat before WCW management wasn't happy and decided to change things again.
This stable idea was a great idea because it gave new faces the TV time that they never got before, but it was two year too late. As fans had been begging for WCW to push new talent for years, but we didn't see anything other then the same from them year after year after year. Then when they finally chose to give the younger talent a chance I guess you could say it was "Too Little To Late." On July 9, 2000 everything changed, because that is the night of Vince Russo's famous shoot on Hulk Hogan and also the last time Bischoff and Hogan would be in a WCW ring. However, this was also night that prompted Bischoff to begin looking into buying the WCW. Imagine what would have been like if Eric was able to purchase the company and save the legacy that WCW left behind.
Due to the large excess of members that were at one point a part of The New Blood the list would to long for me to list them here on the site. So with that being said I have chosen to post a link and the link is to show you all just how many members were in stable that was together for only two months remember that.
This section has to do with moments that may have happened a little "Too Little Too Late."
