What do wrestlers consent to?

If someone has their “oil checked” during a match, can he or she file a criminal complaint for sexual assault?  Sue for damages?  Or does every wrestler out there implicitly consent to being touched in that manner?

What about being choked or strangled in an illegal hold? Or punched? Or threatened with bodily harm? Or being intentionally injured?

Does anyone know?

I was going to "like" this post, but that seemed wrong. So, I will just quote it and say that this is a great question.

I guess one issue that might come up is "attempted assault." There are lots of holds, e.g. all of Wade Schalles's arsenal, that might qualify.
