Yes it is in some ways. You can break about any bone in you body, especially you're wrists, ankle, and neck. Additionally, the weight requirement makes wrestlers prone to eating disorders or malnutrition. There are rules in most Highschool and College leagues which attempt to prevent both physical harm and malnutrition, but both still happen occasionally.

Wrestling can be said to give many benefits. Unlike pro wrestling, you can go on to be national champion here in the US or you can go and wrestle in tournments in romote countries where wrestling there is as big as Baseball or football here. Many CEO's and high level business people say that they owe their work ethic to the rigorous training and maintenance schedule that they learned in Wrestling. Addittionally, the personal nature of the sport as well as the rigorous training required can help build confidence. Wrestling is also one of the cheapest sports, the only required items being wrestling shoes and headgear. This is an economic advantage in comparison with other sports. If you're good enough, you can even qualify in the Olympic Trials to maybe even earn an Olympic Gold Medal.

boxing-In this you can only hit your opponent by punchs wrestling-in this you can do everything you want to do with your opponent apart from breaking his neck in a comment to the last answer, you can do everything to your opponent apart from breaking the neck in Pro Wrestling only. In Amateur wrestling, you can Take an opponent down as you see in Pro Wrestling, but theres no strikes from the boxing ancestry of pankration( ancient Greco MMA) and theres no weapons, no strikes, no submissions from catch wrestling, no professional ring, no microphones for rivalries and no same roster every week, and there are some seasonal tournament champs sort of like the professional style. see my answer to the "What is the difference between Wrestling and Cheerleading?" question
