New Blood Rising was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW). It took place on August 13, 2000 from the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia. The name is a reference to the New Blood faction within WCW (which dissolved before the pay-per-view). The event replaced WCW's August PPV event Road Wild held from 1997 to 1999 andwas held on a Sunday instead of a Saturday. Despite never being announced before or during the show, every match on the card was contested under no disqualification rules. In 2014, All WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network.

*"Canadian Rules" means that, instead of a traditional three-count, the referee must administer a five-count. Following the five-count, the competitor has to stay down for ten seconds. If both men are down for a ten-count for any reason, the first man who gets to his feet wins the match. In addition, there are no submissions and no count-outs.

**After being absent from the pay-per-view due to a (kayfabe) mysterious motorcycle accident, Goldberg did not show up until the middle of the match. Then, in a worked shoot, Goldberg walked out on the match, apparently refusing to take Kevin Nash's Jacknife Powerbomb.
