It could still go that direction it's obvious Shag Tsung Isn't the big bad here by how fast Liu Kang defeated him. My theory (cause why not?) is Liu Kang hasn't mastered his god powers just yet which in turn sends his ''new world'' into chaos. This allows characters from different timelines to enter his world through portals. It be awesome to see Onaga step through the portal Liu Kang tries his usual god moves but this time nothing works and Onaga just bitch slaps him through the portal. Raiden and the great Kung Lao jump in to save him and our game begins.Mk11 Kronika timeline era shenanigans story was a mistake, should have just continued on to Onaga. Now we're back where we started with mk9. Feels like such a waste.
