Spring Stampede 2000 was the fifth and final Spring Stampede pay-per-view event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW). The event took place on April 16, 2000 from the United Center in Chicago.
The event was notable due the creation of a new WCW after Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo rebooted the company by vacating all the championships and refreshed the WCW roster. Many tournaments occurred during the event for the vacated championships. The main event was the tournament final for the vacated WCW World Heavyweight Championship between Diamond Dallas Page and Jeff Jarrett. During the match, Page's wife Kimberly Page turned on her husband, allowing Jarrett to win the title.
The undercard featured tournaments to crown the new World Tag Team and WCW United States Heavyweight Champions. Shane Douglas and Buff Bagwell defeated Ric Flair and Lex Luger to win the vacated World Tag Team Championship and Scott Steiner defeated Sting to win the vacated United States Heavyweight Championship. Chris Candido won a Six-Way match for the vacant WCW World Cruiserweight Championship and Terry Funk defeated Norman Smiley in a Hardcore match for the vacant WCW Hardcore Championship.
The events of this event would lead to the beginning of an angle, in which the WCW roster was divided into two factions: New Blood and Millionaire's Club. New Blood was the villain group of young wrestlers and Millionaire's Club was the heroic group of veterans of the industry.
