Article does not prove Sahaba (R.A) engaged in wrestling.
Wrestling will be permissible with the intention for preparation of Jihaad, not for gambling, 'aurah' must be covered, no intentional bodily harm must occur, awars can be given.
Looking at the above the scope is narrowed down and this limited.
