SHOW OPENER: “Solve et Coagula” by Mudvayne was the official theme of “Destroy to REcreate”, hyping the final stage of the rebirth of REDEFINE. The music ends with JPO coming down to the ring.
IN RING: JPO welcomes us to Destroy to REcreate, from the brand new REDEFINE Arena in Chicago, IL (formerly known as The Pit). He said “Tonight will be the night we make history, we will crown the FIRST EVER REDEFINE Womens Champion, and one of six men will walk away the NEW REDEFINE World Champion!” He’s interupted by his brother, John Pariah who comes out and says he wants answers for who took him out two weeks ago. Pariah said “I know you know Jason, I know you have footage. I want his head on a spike!” JPO retorted saying he didn’t know, but an investigation was under way! He also confirmed that in two weeks at Vendetta on November 5th-he’d get his hands on CJ Starkweather in a Windy City Street Fight! Pariah begrudgingly accepted, and left the ring. JPO then went on to announce a communal partnership with Rose City Wrestling, SAKURA Pro USA, and Kamikaze Pro-and that more details would be available online over the next few weeks.

She followed up with a running clothesline, and began taking the fight to Stacy, hitting a spinning neckbreaker for a one count. DeVille tries to battle back-connecting with a big spinebuster.
