What are the qualifications of a redshirt wrestler? How many matches can a college wrestler wrestle in and still keep their redshirt?
They can wrestle as many matches as they want as long as they are unattached.

There is also a certain number/percentage of matches they can wrestle and not lose that season of eligibility if they get injured, something like 25%.

You're allowed to compete in four years over a five year period. If you take a medical redshirt, you cannot also take a regular redshirt. If a wrestler who had already taken a medical redshirt got hurt again, he could petition the NCAA and might get a 6th year. However, that option is not available to someone who took a non-medical redshirt.
An athlete can apply for a medical waiver (it's not really a redshirt) to replace a season a 4th year of eligibility lost due to injury. The athlete is allowed to have participated in no more than 20% of the regularly scheduled meets (excludes opens). Generally, an athlete is not granted the waiver for losing just one season due to injury. The most recent waivers that have been granted resulted from loss of two years out of five due to injury. The NCAA has been tightening their willingness to offer medical waivers. I believe Andy Hrovat, Michigan, is good example, was granted a sixth year after two seasons lost to injury.

Didn't jake herbert take a normal redshirt and an olympic redshirt?

Couldn't anyone technically take an Olympic redshirt even if they had no real chance of making the team or do you have to be selected by team USA in order to get that opportunity?
