I have been reading a lot lately about the importance of the aerobic system as it pertains to combat sports. The aerobic system is involved to a much higher degree than early research lead people to believe. Read some artilces by Joel Jamieson at http://www.8weeksout.com/2012/02/23/roadwork-2-0-the-comeback/ to learn more.
Essentially, a wrestler needs to make sure they do some aerobic conditioning. Eevn though wrestling is a very explosive sport at times, a wrestler also needs the endurance to wrestle the entire six minutes. There is a tradeoff between power and endurance. Sprints and high-instensity interval training (HIIT) can be effective too if not done in excessive amounts. And, you don't need to do a high volume of aerobic work (e.g. 100 miles a week) at a slow pace. Doing some longer runs of 30-60 minutes two or three times a week at a fairly good clip can be beneficial. A balance of aerobic and anaerobic work is best. You really need to read some of Joel Jamieson's articles regarding energy systems and especially the aerobic system.
I have also been watching a lot of videos lately. Here are some moves I'm interested in lately:
