    • Jesse: That's what Hulkamania's about, huh? Going in there, flagrantly cheating, not leaving when you're eliminated, causing someone else to get eliminated when you got no business up there.
      Gorilla: Are you condoning what the Big Bossman did; what he and the Slickster did to the Hulkster?
      Jesse: That was weeks ago. I'm talking here and now, Monsoon.
      Gorilla: Sorry, you only go back a couple of minutes ago, or what happened yesterday.
      Jesse: Hey, yesterday's gone. It's today that counts.

    • (Hogan, who was already eliminated from the Rumble, has caused the Big Bossman to be eliminated. They continue the fight down the aisle)
      Gorilla: Hulk still creating mayhem for the Big Bossman.
      Jesse: Now, that's illegal! Hogan was eliminated!
      Gorilla: Yes, he is, Jesse. So what?
      Jesse: "So what"? If they'd have done that to Hogan, Monsoon, you'd have been totally irate!

  • Notes

    • According to storyline, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase did not like the entrance number that he drew and therefore consulted with Slick (who managed the Big Boss Man and Akeem) to arrange for the purchase of entrance #30.

    • The number 27 is considered lucky since 4 men have won the Royal Rumble after drawing the number.

      Big John Studd was the 1st man to start that milestone.

    • The tag team Demolition went into the Royal Rumble match as the WWF Tag Team champions. Ironically enough, both Ax and Smash started the Rumble match after drawing nos. 1 and 2 respectively.

      This would mark the first, and only time thus far, that members of the same team have ever started the Royal Rumble match.
