|ROH Anniversary Show chronology|
ROH 14th Anniversary featured professional wrestling matches that involved wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines that play out on ROH's television program, Ring of Honor Wrestling. Wrestlers portrayed heroes (faces) or villains (heels) as they followed a series of events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
On January 26, 2016, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness announced that Jay Lethal would defend the ROH World Championship against Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole in a Triple Threat match in the Anniversary main event.
Through ROH's partnership with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), the event also featured wrestlers from the Japanese promotion, including Hiroshi Tanahashi, Kazuchika Okada, Kushida, Tomohiro Ishii and Gedo. Shinsuke Nakamura was also originally announced for the event, but was later pulled from the show due to leaving NJPW. He was replaced by Hirooki Goto and Kenny Omega.
Originally, ROH announced that Roderick Strong would defend the ROH World Television Championship against Bobby Fish at the 14th Anniversary Show. However, on February 19 at the ROH and NJPW co-produced Honor Rising: Japan 2016 event in Tokyo, Japan, Strong lost the title to Tomohiro Ishii. Following this, Ishii was added to the scheduled Strong-Fish match, making it a Triple Threat match for the title. In addition, Hirooki Goto, who was originally scheduled to wrestle Ishii, would instead face Dalton Castle.
