    Ground Zero Season One Feedback Thread

    So when I thought of the show, I originally had Tyrone in mind to win. But then whenever I made the rosters, I actually wanted Sam Donovan to win the whole thing.

    Throughout the entire show I was pretty much between Donovan, Johnson, Jack Harris, Dan Dulaney, and James Blake.

    But a lot of you made really good points with Johnson, and I had those same thoughts. So I had to go with him to win it, and I think he'll work out well. There are storylines and character arcs I wanted to try with those other guys, but I think I can do those through different ways one way or another with Sullivan or Tyrone Johnson.


    But anyway, I wanted to get some feedback from you guys. How you thought of the show, the winner, how it was done, etc.

    My thoughts were, I wanted it to be more like a Tough Enough/NXT/Ultimate Fighter kind of show but at the same time I wanted it to be an actual reality show. Instead I think I resorted back to more like a development brand except with people getting eliminated week by week. Is there a way you think I could've done it differently that would have made it more unique?

    I ask because I have a Season 2, and possibly Season 3 in mind for the future. Maybe next summer, maybe later. But it's definitely a possible future project down the road.


    So if you have any feedback, please leave it here for me.

    Also, and I know Alt came to me with this about a month ago but...

    If any one would like to use any of the characters that didn't win then feel free. You can see the 20 man roster in the fan discussion thread I believe.

    I think you made the right choice with who was left man, should be cool once he debuts

    Thanks, yeah I'm feeling really good about Ty Johnson in the FWA. It's a completely kind of different character I'm working with compared to Sullivan and a brand new story to start.

    What did you think about the way I organized the show and is there anything I should do differently for a future season?

    For one I think I'm gonna scrap the coaches. They were a fin little gimmick but I barely incorporated them into the show, and I really didnt feel comfortable incorporating them because I don't normally write for those characters. Even though all four guys gave me permission (except Broc I think I just went ahead and used him) I just didn't want to write for a character that wasn't mine.

    Personally I think we should of seen more out of ring stuff like reality base i think next you could do a special guest coach like they do on voice to mentor guys or even have a different one weekly showing them new stuff. I love to see everyone start off like normal people nothing known bout them and have them try and find gimmick. Like John Doe tries to be a crazy prophet couldnt find his footing so does something to repackage

    Those are interesting ideas, I think I can definitely run with some of those. Fairly certain the next season is going to feature all female competitors.

    Definitely show some more of the out-of-ring stuff like OMB suggested, and I'd say perhaps go with somewhat of a combination of The Ultimate Fighter style set-up & WWE Perfomance Center combination. In that I mean, with how the WWE runs their PC with Classes, Combines, etc, you could perhaps utilize something similar to show off how each of next season's participants and future seasons would handle "running the gauntlet" (sort of speak).

    Cause I could see you definitely doing a future season similar to WWE's Tough Enough, but 10x better, without all of the "politics and bull*hit" that had plagued both seasons of the revived Tough Enough. Because if you were to go a similar route, DON'T [repeat DON'T] have the "Judges" not actually be involved with the Participant's training and whatnot like they did with the most recent Tough Enough. If you decide to have "Judges" eliminate the Participants, then at least have 1 of the Judges also be one of the Coaches.
