StorylinesEdit

Genesis featured seven professional wrestling matches and two pre-show matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.[2]

EventEdit

Prior to the start of the event there was a dark match between Robert Roode and Eric Young. At first Roode pinned Young using the ropes for leverage. The referee however ordered the match to restart once he realized that Roode had utilized the ropes. Young ultimately won the match, also utilizing the ropes for leverage.

The opening match of the pay-per-view was a 3-on-2 handicap match between Kazarian, Maverick Matt and Johnny Devine against The Voodoo Kin Mafia (B.G. James and Kip James). During the match, Kip hit Triple H's pedigree and Shawn Michael's sweet chin music. The Voodoo Kin Mafia ultimately picked up the victory after Kip hit the Cobra Clutch on Devine. After the match, Kip grabbed the mic and told Vince McMahon, Michael Hickenbottom and Paul Levesque to tune in on Thursday to Impact! to see what else they have in store.

The next match saw The Naturals (Andy Douglas and Chase Stevens) defeated Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal, after Shane Douglas interfered while the referee was distracted.

The TNA X Division Championship match was next, which saw the champion Christopher Daniels defending his title against Chris Sabin. During the match, Sabin threw a chair into the ring however A.J. Styles came out and grabbed the chair. Daniels later rolled up Sabin with an inside cradle to retain the title. After the match Sabin grabbed a chair again however he was stopped by Jerry Lynn demanding him and Daniels shake hands. Sabin shook Daniels' hand, and then hit him with a Cradle Shock.

The next match saw Ron Killings and Lance Hoyt defeat The Paparazzi (Austin Starr and Alex Shelley) when Hoyt rolled up Shelley, after Shelley and Starr were distracted with their tripod.

The following match saw Christian Cage take on A.J. Styles. During the match Christopher Daniels came out in order to take the chair away from Cage, which he was going to use. Styles attempted to use this distraction to hit Cage with a sunset flip, however Cage was able to block it and pin Styles for the victory. After the match Styles and Daniels went at each other and were eventually broken up by Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal. Rhino came out and told Daniels and Styles to shake hands and save the relationship, however Styles refused calling Rhino Dr. Phil before leaving ringside.

The NWA World Tag Team Championship match was next, which saw the champions The Latin American Exchange (Homicide and Hernandez) take on America's Most Wanted (Chris Harris and James Storm). Before the match Konnan stated that they would be utilizing their First Amendment right and will burn the American flag. Before he was able to however, America’s Most Wanted attacked them from behind and the two teams went at each other to begin the match. LAX ultimately retained their title when Homicide hit Storm with a blow torch, enabling Hernandez to cover him and pick up the victory. After the match LAX grabbed the American Flag to burn it again before Petey Williams came out with a pipe in order to chase LAX to the back.

Toward the end of the match Sting lays out a bag of thumb tacks, and is chokeslammed onto the tacks. Sting is able to Abyss into the Scorpion Deathlock and Abyss taps however James Mitchell has the referee distracted and he doesn’t see it. Sting then ties Abyss’ leg up and hangs him upside down and proceeds to beat him with a chair. When the referee attempts to break them up, Sting clotheslines the referee and gets disqualified. Under TNA rules, unlike most other major promotions, the title changes hands via a disqualification, meaning Abyss was the new champion, and is awarded the belt by Mitchell while lying unconscious on the ramp.

The main event saw Kurt Angle take on Samoa Joe. Ultimately, Angle picked up the victory when Joe tapped out of the ankle lock. With Angle's win, Joe suffered his first loss in 18 months.
