I agree, it doesn't sound like something that was vital to the story. But now I'm just curious to see what the hell else was going on in that scene.
I'm guessing it was just random thugs looking to rob him, which means he must have fought them off I guess, as I didn't see Mariko fighting.
Yeah, I'd definitely include it as a deleted scene.

Not been this excited for a home release in a long time.
I think the key thing to be added back in from what Mangold has said is thew fight between Wolverine and the Ninja in the snowy village, and I can't wait to see it.
