Genesis was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event promoted by Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA). The name was originally used on May 9, 2003 for a two-hour DirecTV special that highlighted early moments in TNA’s history.[1]

Genesis was actually not amongst the original names used by TNA for its first twelve pay-per-view events, but ultimately was added to the rotation as the thirteenth pay-per-view name during a time of name shuffling on the part of TNA Management. All shows except for one has been held at the Impact Zone. Originally Genesis was held in November but was changed to January starting in 2009. For this reason 2008 didn't have a Genesis PPV event. There have only been five World Championship matches in the main event. On January 16, 2014, Genesis was televised as an Impact Wrestling television special on Spike TV and then as an Impact Wrestling television special on Pop in 2017 and 2018.
