It depends on your goals. Do you want to compete¿ If yes, then you will need at least some wrestling knowledge to get your opponent to the ground or to defend your opponent's take down attack depending on where you want the fight to take place.

Yes, wrestling is becoming dominant and can even be used in advantage to BJJ.

You will have to adjust your wrestling as for example in pure wrestling you don't have to worry about a knee that might come to knock you out when you are shooting in. Things like that.

The only thing you need to learn is how to change levels fast. A good BJJ background would cover the rest.
