I got this off an old wrestling fourm board of a match with Dick and another fellow shooter by Mark S Hewitt.
"Sorry, I was relying on my addled memory.
The Dick Cardinal/ Glen Detton shoot took place in 1953. It occured in Puyallup, WA. Cardinal was the policeman on August Sepp's athletic show and handled all the shoots. Most were against cowboys, lumberjacks, etc.-tough guys but with minimal wrestling skill. Sepp had beaten out rival promoter Glen Detton's bid to set up the athletic show at the fair, a very lucrative venue. Detton (claimed to be related to Dean and Gene, but not sure) swore to get even and show up in the midway crowd vowing to beat every wrestler in Sepp's stable. Detton had a reputation as a tough shooter. Sepp agreed to let Detton try his luck with Cardinal to settle the promotional rights in Puyallup ( I'm unclear if the bout took place in private, as part of the at show or in a local house venue...I'll try to gather more details). The two shooters cautiously circled one another for several minutes. Finally Dick took Detton down with a single-leg, back-heel combination. Dick seized a toehold but couldn't lock it out. After more grappling about the mat, Dick secured a reverse Nelson and forced Detton to submit. It had taken twelve minutes.
Dick Cardinal was a master catch-as-catch-can shooter."
WOW all i can say is Dick is a real F*cking Bad ass it's no wonder not a lot of guys in pro-wrestling with hooking skills wanted to mix it up with him and Benny sherman.
