WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Bobby Roode was interviewed by Planeta Wrestling. Among other things, he talked about hoping Kenny Omega will appear at the Royal Rumble this year. He believes Omega would be a huge addition to the WWE roster.
Roode was asked if he had to choose one surprise entrant for the Royal Rumble match, he would definitely pick Kenny 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.”
Roode also talked about his current WWE RAW Tag Team Championship reign with partner Chad Gable. He said that he is very comfortable with how he is working right now, regardless of what the crowd thinks of him.
“I just like being me, and whether the people love me or hate me, that’s their own prerogative. That’s the beautiful thing about the WWE Universe, everybody has an opinion and everybody can cheer and boo. I just get put in situations where I can go out there and I can just perform at a high level, have a great match, have great opponents to be in the ring with and tell stories with, and I think that’s the key for me. So I’m very comfortable right now and I feel like I’m doing some of my best work right now in the tag team with Chad.”
