When analysing the final full calendar year of World Championship Wrestling's existence, it's important to remember that few thought the promotion could feasibly go out of business - whilst the bubble was eerily close to bursting, there were millions who were under the impression that the company were simply one major storyline away from turning everything around. A lot of the reasons for this attitude can be attributed to the advent of the New World Order, an angle which turned the fortunes of WCW around so dramatically that people truly felt it was only a matter of time before those and such as those in charge could come up with something so awesome again. That excellent idea would never come back around again, and WCW would be bought over by Vince McMahon in March, 2001. Even though the end was nigh, it wasn't plainly obvious, but WCW was nonetheless an incredibly interesting place at the turn of the millennium.
