The RAW weekly checklist is a semi-rotating checklist of memes, appearances, and other assorted shenanigans that normally occur during an episode of Raw, or in a PPV event. The list fluctuates every now and then to include new references and memes which are more current, however older, more classical mainstays always have a place on the list. In general, a new FWC member or lurker can look to the RAW checklist and be on the lookout for these things to happen in the thread. Originally created for the Summerslam 2011 PPV, the list includes contributions from ManofPA, Dougie_AXP, hundreddollarman and many others. It is currently maintained by FWC member Grand Moff Joseph.
The Checklist Debuts
FWC member hundreddollarman debuted the original checklist on August 14, 2011, during the 2011 Summerslam 2011 thread, as a way to keep track of some events that would likely happen over the course of the thread. The original list consisted of the following items:
1) I Said's breakdown is post of the night
2) Smiths posts a centered bolded post wondering about the tab location
3) FNB has an idea that is later stolen by the Raw writer who monitors this thread
4) We are saddened by how they blow the ADR appearance at this PPV
5) Someone comes a trolling tonight
The checklist was modified by Dougie AXP in time for the next night's episode of Raw, and was posted in the related Fark thread. Dougie modified the list and expanded it, adding a number of items. The completed list was enshrined that night as the first official checklist, and consisted of the following:
1) I Said breaking down game-winning strategy for John Cena
3) "BAH GAWD KING!"
5) No Peas!
6) Somebody trolling for the night
7) Somebody wondering why this isn't in the Entertainment tab
10) WE WANT ICE CREAM
Current Raw Checklist (as of August 2013)
2) Kaate Explosion, the weekly troll we deserve, asks why this isn't in the Entertainment tab
3) Pretty GM is stalked by KelyKellyKelly
5) Bah Gawd King, that's the NPO's music!
14) Where's Cena? Is someone talking about Cena? WHERE'S CENA?
16) Remember the SSSP belt? Yeah, that happened
17) Screw it, you aren't even reading this one. ARMBRA! (but link it NSFW)
18) Once a PPV cycle, just like Taker....the "It's Me" pic returns
19) JFSP shows up late and gives a full recap; posts Cena
20) Last APP reference Standing
21) "Bobby, what's that?" "No worries, Gorilla. that's just Tony making his 'meh' face"
22) An fWc member loses his or her smile
