April

  • April 10 – Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff, recently appointed by WCW as its new co-creative team, relaunch WCW on WCW Monday Nitro and declare all of its championships vacant; when World Champion Sid Vicious refuses to give up his title following the announcement, Bischoff forces the issue and coerces Vicious into giving up the belt by threatening to fire him if he did not. The WCW relaunch also sees the formation of the New Blood, a heel stable headed by Russo and Bischoff made up of WCW's younger talent, which goes on to feud with the Millionaire's Club, the established WCW veterans led by Hulk Hogan, who become the faces in the feud.
