Wayne is a scavenger in Freeside. He, Roy and Farris just cashed in some scrap metal and decided to go to the Atomic Wrangler to try their luck at gambling when an attack occurred between two parties and they were caught in the crossfire.
Putting the names of the three men together, you get "Roy Wayne Farris" - real name of WWE Legend The Honky Tonk Man, who wrestled with an Elvis impersonator gimmick and is also the cousin of Jerry "The King" Lawler.
A subtle reference to "Lou Tenant" is made in Fallout: New Vegas during the quest G.I. Blues. When you talk to Wayne about being attacked, he will mention that one of them was called Lou, and on further thought, Lou Tenant. He will then be corrected by his friend Roy, who says he means "Lieutenant," and that Wayne can be "dumber than a mutant."
