Deadpool’s connection to X-Men ’97

After having watched the X-Men '97 trailer several times, it strikes me as odd they'd show a live action TV set for an animated show. It's played off as for nostalgia, but I think there's much more to it.
My theory is that the opening scene might give us a clue as to how this might tie into the greater direction of Marvel.
Why show a real TV set? Why, of all possible X-Men, A Colossus figure, when he isn't even featured in the show?
I think Deadpool is watching the show, and thereby bridging the gap between animation and the MCU.
