Genesis 2014 is a professional wrestling television special produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), It took place on January 16, 2014 (with the card split between both the January 16 and January 23 broadcasts of TNA's weekly flagship program Impact Wrestling) at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama. It is the ninth event under the Genesis chronology. Unlike the previous events, this event was not held on pay-per-view (PPV) and instead, like Destination X 2013, Hardcore Justice 2013 and No Surrender 2013, it was featured as a special edition of TNA's weekly broadcast of Impact Wrestling. The first broadcast was dedicated in memory of Mae Young, who had passed away two days prior.
Genesis featured professional wrestling matches, that involve different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.
