NPC – John J Keeshan

John J Keeshan and a bunch of the quests in Redridge are a reference to John J Rambo (played by Sylvester Stallone) and Rambo: First Blood.  Colonel Troteman (throwback to Colonel Trautman in Rambo) is also here in Redridge.  As a side note he gets a promotion in Mists of Pandaria, and Marshal Troteman can be found in Krasarang Wilds giving out quests for Alliance as part of Operation: Shieldwall.

Keeshan even has some quotes in game from the movie:

  • “They asked me to fight in those wars. I didn’t ask them! I did what I had to do to win. So I end up getting captured by those filthy, crap-swilling, maggot orcs and for five long years they used me as a toilet. Finally I break out and head back to my hometown and what do I get? People spitting on me, protesting me, calling me a baby orc killer and all kinds of vile crap!”
  • “I CAN’T FIND YOUR LEGS JOEY! I CAN’T FIND YOUR DAMNED LEGS!”
  • THERE ARE NO FRIENDLY CIVILIANS!

And at the end, as a quest reward, you get Keeshan’s Bandana.  So you can be all Rambo-style!
