He was also cornered by Josh Barnett, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, and introduced by WWE Hall of Famer "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. After his impressive victory, Morrison dismissed the possibility of fighting Logan Paul or Jake Paul and instead called out Logan's business partner, KSI.
KSI, who recently appeared at WrestleMania 39, was described by Morrison as the walking Prime bottle. In addition to Morrison's debut, the event featured appearances by various other wrestling stars. PJ Black, for example, appeared in the event as Crash Bandicoot, a popular video game character.
Black's appearance was a promotion for the upcoming Crash Team Rumble game, and he confronted YouTube star Chad Lebaron of the Cherdleys channel during a break between fights. Overall, the Creator Clash 2 event was an exciting and entertaining night for boxing and wrestling fans.
Morrison's impressive debut win and call-out of KSI has sparked interest among fans, and the event's star-studded cast of wrestlers only added to the excitement.
