Kwang replaced Ludvig Borga in the main Royal Rumble event because Borga legitimately hurt his ankle and, even when it got better, never returned to the WWF. Bob Spark Plugg Holly replaced the 123 Kid because the Kid hurt his knee.
The number 27 is considered lucky since 4 men have won the Royal Rumble after drawing the number.
Bret Hart was the 3rd man to accomplish that milestone.
