Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Marvel has been talking up the Mandarin for years now, waiting for the right time to use him. So now, finally, the time comes...and they don't even really use him? The only acknowledgment of the 10 Rings is when Tony calls Trevor "Ringo"? Seems like an odd call, but I'll say that it made for a great twist and it worked well in this context.
I believe Tony was making a reference to Ringo Star with that line.
