Default Wrenching damage

Hello. Quick question, if wrenching a body part (arm, leg, neck or spine) and you are lucky enough to be succesful in the quick contest, you do swing crushing damage.

Is swing crushing damage based on your strength with or without wrestling skill?

I.e. I have Strength 13. I have wrestling at DX+2. That means my strength counts as 2 higher for grappling and wrenching.

This means instead of ST-4 v his ST or HT, I roll ST-2 v his ST or HT.

Now, if successful, is swing crushing damage based on strength 13...or so I strike as if strength 15? (due to +2 strength from wrestling)

Martial Arts, p. 61 clarifies that the bonus is also to damage, at +1 per die at DX+1 and +2 per die at DX+2.

The upcoming Technical Grappling will not change the fact that skill adds to ST (though it might tweak it a bit, and careful readers will have seen it before . . . somewhere).
