On January 5, 1984, Colonel Buck Robley wrestled 666. Colonel Buck Robley is in the ring wearing his patented "Nobody Calls Me Yellow" t-shirt (as The Reverend Axl Future might say, I bet that not only does Robley have that shirt patented, I bet Robley had it copyrighted, trademarked and all rights have been reserved). The song "Ironman" by Black Sabbath plays and out comes 666 (which is usually pronounced "Triple 6" but sometimes the announcers say "six six six"). Triple 6 wears face paint and The Mongol is his tag team partner. Sheik Abdullah The Great managed Triple 6 and The Mongol, but Sheik Abdullah isnít here for this match. Robley and Triple 6 lock up collar-and-elbow and Triple 6 backs Robley into the corner and Triple 6 breaks cleanly. Robley works on the left arm of Triple 6. Triple 6 broke the armbar with "The Blood of The Beast" which is the "green mist" gimmick (a la Kendo Nagasaki, The Great Kabuki, The Great Muta, Tajiri, etc.), although Triple 6 used an orange mist in this match, other colors used by Triple 6 include purple and green. Triple 6 with a kick and a stomp while Robley is laid out on the canvas. Robley comes back with a kneelift and a punch. They start brawling in the middle of the ring. Buck Robley got the better of it by using his forearm brace. It has been alleged for years that the forearm brace of Colonel Buck Robley is loaded. Bulldog Bob Brown makes his way ringside. 666 helped put Bob Brown out of wrestling for six weeks.

Triple 6 is near the ropes and he turns around and he took a swing at Bulldog Bob Brown. Brown retaliates with several punches in the face of Triple 6. Robley catches the stunned Triple 6 with an inside cradle for the three count! This is the first defeat of Triple 6 on television. Triple 6 gets a little revenge on Robley by ramming him head first into The Ring Post but Bob Brown scared Triple 6 away.
