- As noted, Kenny Omega was in Chile on Saturday for the Wrestling Star promotion. He wrestled two local talents and Matt Sydal in the evening's four-way main event, which he won by pinning Sydal, as seen in the video below courtesy of Wrestling Inc. reader @AlePatricio9. After the match, Omega cut a promo where he praised Sydal and once again stated that he won't be at The Royal Rumble tonight. As noted, Omega recently stated that he hasn't officially re-signed with New Japan yet, but will be meeting with them next month and plans to renew with them for one year.
- Omega also posted the tongue-in-cheek photo today below poking fun at all of the Omega - Royal Rumble talk over the past several weeks:
