Old style wrestling

An observation and not a judgement. I was looking up wrestling on Wikipedia (because I started by looking up Rafael Trujillo and why strongmen emerged in Latin America despite the fall of fascism post-World War II, and then it had a link to circus strongmen, which reminded me of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay), they have a bunch of images of images of the Greek Pankration fighting style and such, and frankly a lot of it looks homoerotic, or more bluntly like it's man-on-man pornography than the fighting it's said to be, what with the nude muscular grappling each other fiercely and whatnot. Anyone else notice this, or is it me?
