The charts could he simple since matches would probably take place with either a circle of warriors or on a platform.
For the platform, ropes and turnbuckle could be attempts to throw the opponent into the post holding one wrestler’s flag. Deathjump could be a jumping or running move. And out of the ring could be an attempt to hurl the opponent off the platform, where success is an automatic win since the opponent would be in no shape to get back up.
Heck, the commentary and dialogue alone would be worth it.
Og vs. Nob in a Babylonian Battle Hut match!
“Nob will make Og so flat, Og will wish he stayed home and made the wheel!”
“Borblit is so dumb, he failed his armor class.”
“You look like and orc.” “You smell like a cow.” “You fight like an elf.”

I just caught some of Conan the Destroyer for the first time in decades, specifically the scene with the ape monster. Funny how that scene scared the wits out of me as a kid but now it just seems overly campy. Anyway the match had the creature using wrestling moves and reminded me of this thread.
I could easily see these as Classics sets that could be used with COTG or LOW. You have the B.C. set, which is cavemen (have no clue how that'd be done), the Barbarian Era (which could be barbarians, wizards, and monsters), and then the Early A.D. Era (which could be Greeks vs. Romans vs. Egyptians and whoever else).
Like others here, I don't know how movesets would be done, but I'd love to see those, especially the Barbarian and A.D. eras.
A year ago before I got back into LOW, I was messing around with streamlined wrestling rules that focused on skills instead of moves. Might work well with a barbarian era since i wouldn’t gave to worry about movesets.
