Gold Rush Pro Wrestling presented the loyal fans with a moment that the fans could bond over with sounds of glory, as well as dissonance.
For eight years, Gold Rush Pro Wrestling present its annual Reach For The Gold event in Pacifica, CA. Wrestlers from all over the world come through to The Gold Mine to carve out their legacy, hoping one day to strike gold.
Among the pieces of gold scattered throughout the talent are championships, golden opportunity horseshoes, and golden pieces fought for and prized by competitors.
This year, no piece of gold was bigger than the Dynamite Division Championship, held by Boyce LeGrande, for more than five years. Marcus Lewis challenged the champion to the almighty ladder match, where the championship rested above the ring for the competitors to climb.
The jubilation in the crowd watching what could possibly be a new champ crowned shook the Ingrid B. Lacy Gymnasium to the core. The echoes of solidarity enchanted the holy ground of professional wrestling as Marcus Lewis unbuckled the strap of the title atop a fifteen feet ladder.
At such height, Lewis could feel the adulation from his fans as he looks down, only to see the referee of the contest out of commission due to a mistargeted chairshot that drilled the dome of Alexandre Goldstein. Lucian D. Light enters the ring.
The distain of the audience, hailing the stage with a roar of boos and disagreement, saw as D. Light topped over the ladder, and sent a breeze to Lewis that relinquished the hold of the Dynamite Division Championship.
The prized gold now separated from the victor. The title was picked up and placed onto the battle worn Boyce LeGrande. As the daze wore off from the chair shot, the referee awoke to the seemingly indisputable sight of LeGrande with the golden title and called for the end of the match, declaring LeGrande the winner.
