WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Bobby Roode has made it known that he thinks a perfect surprise entrant in this year’s men’s Royal Rumble match would be former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega, who has claimed that he’s leaving NJPW.
While doing a recent interview with Planeta Wrestling, Roode made it known that his choice for a surprise Royal Rumble entrant would be Omega.
“Right now it seems like the stars in the business, the people I’m familiar with, are definitely in the WWE or quite possibly one of the 30 guys that are already in the match. But if you’re looking for an outside guy, I don’t know, it’s gotta be Kenny Omega then. He’s a fellow Canadian and a guy that, I think, has a lot of talent and would be a huge edition to this company. But who knows? We’ll see what happens.”
