This led to speculation from the wrestling industry that Omega could in fact be on his way to WWE, despite him saying he wasn’t interested in coming to promotion.
Shortly before Cena shared the photo of Omega, Omega took to his Twitter account after his well received match at Wrestle Kingdom 11 to address his future. “I will be stepping away from Japan to reassess my future. The path of my journey may change, but my goals will not.”
The belief is that Omega is trying to keep his name in the news, which is why he sent out the tweet. Omega is still under contract with New Japan until January 31st, so that would rule out an appearance at the upcoming WWE Royal Rumble event. Several people with the company have stated that he has already renewed with the promotion, however we can not confirm those claims as of this writing. The feeling is that Omega is expected to return to New Japan sometime in March.
- Shaquille O’Neal indicated on Instagram that he has begun his training for his rumored match against The Big Show at WrestleMania 33. While WWE has yet to make the match official, it has been reported that Vince McMahon has locked in three matches that will take place at the event and Show vs. Shaq is one of them.
