With rumors running rampant that Kenny Omega received an incredible offer from WWE, increasing his chances of landing with the company, one particular WWE superstar would love to see Omega in the ring at this month’s Royal Rumble.

WWE superstar, and current RAW Tag Team Champion, Bobby Roode is one person who would love to see Omega shock the world as a surprise entrant into the 2019 Royal Rumble.

“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,” Roode said, during an interview with Planeta Wrestling.

“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 addition to this company. But who knows? We’ll see what happens.”
