By the start of the new century, WWE had taken control of the Monday Night War and World Championship Wrestling was in total disarray.  In the latter part of 1999 Eric Bischoff was replaced by Vince Russo at the top of the company.  Vince Russo's reign at the top was short-lived and he wasn't there by the time the first pay-per-view of the year took place.  The new regime allowed The Radicals to leave the company, despite Chris Benoit holding the WCW World Heavyweight Championship at the time.

 

Within a few months, the story lines of the company were rebooted and Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo were both back with the company.  That arrangement didn't last long as things blew up at Bash at the Beach and resulted in Hulk Hogan leaving and suing the company.  The World Championship changed hands over 20 times in 2000.  Most memorably, David Arquette won the title during the year. 

Shockingly, things were even worse for their parent company.   In January of 2000, the AOL-Time Warner merger was announced.  That horrific merger resulted in the sale of WCW to Vince McMahon in 2001.
