-- Rob sent in the following: I rented the game Saint's Row: The Third, and at the character traits part under the "taunt" section you have a few wrestling-related taunts to choose from including "The Marine" which is John Cena's "You Can't See Me" hand gesture, "Nature Boy" which is Ric Flairs Strut (character wooo's also during it), "Neck Slice" referring to the undertaker, and "Angelmania" which is Hogan's hand to the ear followed by all his poses. During the gameplay, gangs you encounter are the "Luchadores" which are as you would guess are masked wrestlers. One of the missions you have to fight the gang is help a wrestler who lost his mask get ready to get back in the ring and help him find his mask that he lost. During one of the cut scenes the Luchadores Gang Boss who is an undefeated champion. There is a reference to Montreal as Masked Luchador Eddy "Kill Baine" says, "This just can't be a run in, this plan has to be a Screw Job". The big final mission is challenging Eddy to a match where he puts his mask on the line and the fight takes place inside an actual wrestling ring.
