The entire thing was a joke inspired by a Russian college professor during the Cold War who claimed Shakespeare was Russian.
That said, I think the Enterprise folks may have been hinting that it was true when they had the line about Shakespeare's plays being the same in both universes. (It was either a slam on Shakespeare for being dark -- which strikes me as rather unfair -- or a coy hint that he was an extraterrestrial, which is why he'd be the same in both universes.)
