Fans of Washington-based Without a Cause Wrestling (WAC) received a belated holiday gift on Sunday when out wrestler Keita Murray became the inaugural WAC Stallions champion.

The championship main event of WAC’s Without a Crowd season finale pitted Murray against a trio of Pacific Northwest favorites, “The Devil” Drexl, Jacob Oso and Steve Migs, in a four-way elimination battle for the new title. In the end, Murray crowned himself King Stallion by lastly eliminating Migs.

The Bisexual King’s victory vaults him into the highest echelon of WAC’s talented roster, with his Stallions title ranking only below current WAC heavyweight champion and former Impact X-Division champion Chris Bey.

It’s fitting that Murray’s first hallmark of the new year came in a WAC ring as he expressed his desire to work with the young promotion on the Outsports podcast LGBT In The Ring in September. “Without a Cause was somewhere I was supposed to be at right now if this pandemic didn’t happen. It’s heartbreaking,” Murray said.

The victory is also very personal for Murray. The self-described “Key to your Heart” emerged from his pandemic-related hiatus with a new confidence after fully embracing his bisexual identity in the ring. “This championship win means so much to me and helps elevate me to new levels,” Murray tweeted following the victory.

It is unknown when WAC events will resume, but the new WAC Stallions champion is sure to be a key part for the foreseeable future.
