I know it technically ties into Origins Wolverine but because that's the only thing they reference from that movie, I think it plays as a nice revelation for people who haven't seen that film or who just discount me.
It isn't the only reference from that movie. Not at all.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The WWII scene is a reference to X-Men Origins: Wolverine establishing him as a member of all the various wars.

There is a reference to Kayla in the movie. In fact her name is specifically stated.

And of course the bone claws are taken directly from Origins.
