Following the breakup of both the Brood and the New Brood, Gangrel was left as a single wrestler at the turn of the millennium to fend for himself. It was during this run with the company when Gangrel had the most success as the gothic vampire character.

While known predominantly for his teaming with Edge and Christian, Gangrel also competed for WWF European Championship at the 1999 Royal Rumble.

At the 2000 Royal Rumble, Gangrel entered with Test, the Big Boss Man, Rikishi and the British Bulldog already in the ring. Gangrel would clock a Royal Rumble time of 23 minutes and 19 seconds, which was just second to Test's Ironman time of 26 minutes and 17 seconds for that year's Royal Rumble. Gangrel was also one of the six superstars involved in eliminating Rikishi from the ring along with Edge, Test, Big Boss Man, Bob Backlund, and the British Bulldog.

He would eventually be eliminated by the Big Show.
