Yes! More wrestling peplum please! Although Reeves is in top form, ancient wrestlers have the bulk which I always thought Reeves lacked as he was mostly lean. Bulky and beefy would be the ideal wrestler's body. Alan Steel has the perfect "wrestler" bulk!
I'm kind of glad the Reeves broke away from just being the muscly Hercules-type strongman so quickly in his film career. For one thing we got to see him as much more varied characters, like this one, Morgan the pirate, the theif of Bagdad (my personal favorite), Sandokan, etc. And I also firmly believe that Reeves varied acting jobs also helped to quickly diversify the Italian Peplum genre itself. Though it seemed to eventually settle on the typical "gladiator picture."
