mattj256: i don't think themed rules are appropriate for an official wikipedia page on an abstract strategy board game. to me, both the rugby theme and the BGG wrestling theme seem off-putting or silly at best. useful analogies are useful, but at the same time talking about "players" when you mean "pieces" and "field" when you mean "board" is hardly making things any clearer.
 
also having team positions named after animals doesn't have a particularly good taste. you can't build much on top of the animal theme and keep the result natural.
 
headlining the paragraphs to break the great wall of text is good and should be done on the official wikipedia page.
 
it deserves special mention that you can push or pull piece in other directions than only in a straight line. this is often missed by new players when learning the rules and your push and pull diagrams reinforce this bad reading by showing movement in only one direction. you could also add arrows to make the movement more obvious

I agree with all that Marty has said. Also, animations would be great for demonstrating pushing, pulling, and freezing.
