Ground Zero Season 7 signups are going up sometime between today and the end of the weekend.

It'll be a hardcore season! Your characters don't have to be "hardcore" but they will be subjected to some of the most extreme and dangerous matches Ground Zero has ever seen!

I'll have a signup post up soon. I'm really excited about this one. Looking for a mid to late March debut and will try to wrap things up by the end of April.

Stay tuned!

Welcome to the official application page for Ground Zero Season 6. For those who do not know, Ground Zero is a kayfabe reality competition show (think a mix of Tough Enough and NXT) to determine the next FWA Star. It's basically like my own version of an FWA Be The Booker. The first season of Ground Zero was entirely made up of my own characters, and the second season this evolved to where other handlers could volunteer their own character ideas to compete. The third season featured tag teams, the fourth season had a luchador theme and took place in Mexico, and the fifth season featured all women wrestlers.

This season's theme is that it is all HARDCORE.

How this will work is anyone is free to fill out the application and donate characters for me to use for this. These characters, or most of them, will compete on the show. I will eliminate a number of them each week until the final week, where a winner of the show is determined (with the kayfabe reward of an FWA contract).

You DO NOT have to commit to anything if you submit a character idea here. There will not be weekly promos, I will not demand you to write segments, etc. In the past, people have written segments for their characters, but it is not necessary. The weekly results and matches will simply be decided by me. So do not feel like you don't want to commit to anything so you aren't making a character With that said, if you foresee yourself using this character for real in the fed and feel like this is a great way to get them started, then please let me know. Anyone who tells me that they plan on using the character in the FWA will have their character survive until the final episode. At that point there will be an official sanctioned match and promo thread to determine the winner. But again, for this you have to let me know so that I KNOW your character is legit. Otherwise they may get eliminated early in the competition.

You may submit multiple characters, as many as you wish in fact, but do note two things. The first thing is, the main portion of the competition will only feature at most 18-20 Characters. Which means even if there are 60 characters submitted, I'll cut it all the way down to 18 by the end of the first episode. Also note that if you have multiple characters, I will likely eliminate some of those early.

With all that said, I appreciate anyone who volunteers an application.

Have fun!

Here is the application template with an example of how to fill it out below. Please fill out each category entirely. Applications will be open for a couple months as Ground Zero Season 6 won't be getting started until mid to late March.

The only rule is that the character must not have competed in the FWA before.


Here is an application template:

Your traditional generic hardcore wrestler. His training is of the backyard kind, having nothing but the glass shards to show his training. Having worked purely in Alabama, he was signed up to Ground Zero due to losing a bet on how many lighttubes they could break during a match. Now, with the chance to show his expertise as the most rabid brawler, JEREK looks to make his impact known to the entire death match world.

From: Red Lodge, Montana

Height: 6"4

Backstory: Callum Thorne never intended to get into wrestling, it fell in his lap. He grew up loving the movie Road House and found himself one day wanting to be a bouncer at a bar. When he came of age he started to live his dream in his hometown of Red Lodge serving as the lead bouncer for a good portion of his twenties. That was until one night when one of the locals got into a fight his life would change. A former Ground Zero wrestler, Emerson McCoy was thrown into him landing on his lap. Callum helped him out, and the two threw the locals out, and friendship blossomed from there. McCoy agreed to help train Throne and the two of them went into the tag team division in Paragon South Wrestling indy fed in Montana where they became 3x PSW Interstate Tag Team Champions. McCoy would go on to do his own thing after and eventually ended up as a student at FWA Reagan Cole. It was here where Callum would go out on his own and became a 2x Hangman Gallows Invitational winner. These tournaments would see some Texas Bullrope-style deathmatches set in bars across Southwest. He would be the only man to win it back-to-back utilizing brass knuckles with broken beer bottles tapped on them to a roar of the crowd. This time his fans stated that they were residents of "Callum County". Callum would finally win one more championship, SRW North Texas Championship. However, he would blow his shoulder out and hasn't wrestled since.

D.O.A

16zHTeN.jpeg


Name: D.O.A / Dead On Arrival
D/O/B: June 12th, 1999.
Height: 5’8”.
Weight: 139lbs.
Billed From: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Alignment: Face.

Backstory: D.O.A is a young athlete of mixed Australian/Brazilian heritage, currently causing a bit of a ruckus along the Australian independent scene. Having debuted in 2021 under her real name, D.O.A utilized her capoeira background to create a unique nonstop motion of evasiveness and attack within the ring. Quick, flashy, with an insane level of cardio, D.O.A operates under one core rule: If you’re resting, you’re not fighting. And if you’re not fighting, you’re losing. This resulted in a series of matches within Coastline Circuit Combat, an otherwise unremarkable promotion in Queensland, where D.O.A’s matches were so fast-paced and violent that it often ended with either her or her opponent looking like they were on their way to an emergency room, or in the more extreme cases, the morgue. This series of matches earned her the namesake of Dead On Arrival, or D.O.A for short, a nickname she embraced wholeheartedly.

Of course, that’s not to say D.O.A hasn’t received criticism for her preferred way of operating within the ring. Several elder wrestling talking heads on various podcasts, most notably famed historian/piece of shit Tim Bornette, have routinely discouraged D.O.A’s nonstop attacking sprint focus, many times requesting that she should ‘slow down’ and ‘grab a resthold’, along similar terms. And to their point, D.O.A has very little, if any, wrestling technique - for all her sprint striking prowess, she has never bothered to put someone in so much as a headlock. But, in the same way a giant never ascends to top rope, that’s just her preferred style. To D.O.A, fighting is a competitive combination of attack, evade, endurance, and cardio, and a resthold is the antithesis of all of those terms. The second the bell rings, you should be in a war to decisively dismantle the other person, something D.O.A is very good at. So far, none of her matches within CCC have gone over nine minutes, and are typically touted as the hottest matches on the card.

Her making the cut to Ground Zero, especially in this hardcore focused season, may be the true test of her ideology and abilities.

Gimmick: Capoeira-based Sprint Artist.

Finishing Move/s:
Razorblade Rhythm - Falcon Dice Kick (Step-up Cartwheel Scissors Kick)

Signature/s:
Silken Slicer - Cartwheel Death Valley Driver
Capoeira Cadance - Handstand Helicopter Kick/s

Entrance Music: Catgroove - Parov Stelar


Base Pic: Janai Kai

Other Information: Fond of using tables, especially with the Silken Slicer. Has been known to glue thumbtacks or glass to the soles of her shoes.

There you go, extra number for you.​
