GURPS Dungeon Fantasy: Wrestler lens

Precis - A 50-point "cross-training" lens for the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy wrestler -- the template from the new issue of Pyramid.
One of my players came up with this simple "cross-training" lens (in the vein of DF3) for the wrestler -- a brand-new template from this month's issue of Pyramid. The Notes are a bit complex, but they have to be to keep this to a single lens, since it can interact oddly with certain templates (e.g., to prevent a shirtless savage barbarian-wrestler from ending up with DR in the teens).

Wrestler Lens (+50 points)

Attributes: +1 ST [10].

Advantages: Enhanced Parry 1 (Unarmed) [5]; Lifting ST 3 [9]; Damage Resistance 1 (Tough Skin, -40%) [3]; and Wrestling Master [10]

Skills: Brawling (E) DX [1]; Immovable Stance (H) DX-1 [2]; Push (H) DX-1 [2]; and Wrestling (A) DX+2 [8].

Notes: If you're already strong, you only need to buy enough ST and Lifting ST to get your effective ST to 18. If you already have 3+ levels of DR (Tough Skin) from a professional template -- not your race -- don't buy any further "wrestler" DR, from this lens or later on (your maximum from this profession is 3). If you already have any of the skills here, use the given points to raise them if possible. Any points left over after following these instructions should go toward further Lifting ST (up to 6) and Wrestling (no limit); if 1-3 points remain, use them to raise the other skills and/or to add Parry Missile Weapons.

The wrestler deserves some unique power-ups, but for now this template has access to Bear Hug, Bone Breaker, and Extra Option (Beefcake Protection) (all from Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Barbarians) and Rolling Throw (from Pyramid 61).
