The concept behind the group was that each member is a multi-generation wrestling. The name of the faction, The Legacy, referred to their extensive family histories in wrestling. Kevin McAlmond's father (Brian McAlmond), uncle (Billy McAlmond and grandfather (Keith McAlmond) were all professional wrestlers. Kyle Johnson, meanwhile, takes his name from his father, (Kyle Johnson) who wrestled before him along with both his grandparents (adoptive grandfather (Mike Johnson and grandmother Mary). Mark Semmler is only a second generation wrestler, taking his father (Dusty Semmler) and his two uncles (Jerry and Fred), who precede him in the business. Due to their status as second or third generation wrestlers, all the members of The Legacy believe themselves to be superior to the other wrestlers in IWE, in storyline

In an interview, McAlmond said the point of The Legacy was to create "future opponents" for himself and the others who would be wrestling in main events in IWE over the next decade. The Legacy has been compared to the former IWE faction Evolution of which McAlmond was a member, but Semmler and Johnson have said that they see the comparison as an opportunity to prove themselves and show there potential.
