When Falcon meets Slaughters Renegades Buzz Dixon says in the commentary that each Renegade was based on a pro wrestler of the time:

Taurus was Iron Sheik
Red Dog was Jimmy Snuka
Mercer was ?

I either missed it or he doesnt say. Did any1 catch it?
or if Buzz doesnt say anybody got any ideas who mercer
wouldve been based on?

by the way the commentary is pretty great i have to say.

Mercer was inspired a bit by Dolph Lundgren

I find it funny that the Jinx/Pythonia fight was an homage to the soap opera Falcon Crest

yaaa falcon crest. lol talk about a dated reference.
i used to watch that with my mom when i was 5,
and i think i remember digging it.

i also love how he goes on forever describing how duke is dead
....only historians are concerned with his life now,
he's kicked the bucket, he's passed on....

i wish i remembered the actual quote but man it was funny
