The way that Alfred tells the story it comes off as a known legend surrounding Bane, even though it wasn't true. Talia seemed to be mostly unknown outside of the league and the pit prisoners didn't seem to equate the mercenary with Ra's if they even knew who he was. One of the things I love most about the movie is how it deals directly with legends, and not just with Batman.
