Kenny Omega was mentioned on the official WWE website and App on Thursday.
The company posted a video, asking stars which surprise entrant they would like to see in the 2017 30-man Royal Rumble match. The title for the video on the App was "Watch: Which Superstar Wants Kenny Omega In The Royal Rumble Match?"
In the video, Seth Rollins stated he would like to see Omega make an appearance in the Royal Rumble match.
"Maybe Kenny Omega," Rollins replied. "There's been a lot of buzz about him that his future's up in the air with New Japan, so you never know. Could we see The Cleaner in the Rumble? I don't know."
WWE has since yanked the video from their site and edited Rollins’s answer out of the video on YouTube and their App. You can check it out here:
The last we heard Omega’s contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling wasn’t up until Jan. 31, 2017 and there was talk he was going to re-sign with them. However, he had told people close to him that he didn’t know what he was going to do. WWE was interested, as they are with any NJPW talent, but Omega is particular is probably the hottest name in professional wrestling right now.
