8. Vince McMahon Doesn’t Remember That Luke Gallows Played The Role of Festus
During a recent edition of Sam Robert’s Wrestling Podcast which featured Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Gallows’ past WWE gimmicks were discussed and one interesting thing that popped out of it was that Vince McMahon doesn’t remember that the role of Festus was played by Gallows. Below is what Gallows said:

“I was 20 years old when I went to that Tough Enough. I’ve been wrestling since I was 18, so WWE ended for me, the first time, when I was 26 years old and I was like, I didn’t take it as a boo boo face and I was upset about it. It was like a brand new set of challenges and lets keep rocking and rolling. And then, New Japan breathed new life into my career completely and then being a part of The Club. I have a storied past with great gimmicks. It’s great. It is. It’s really nice to come and be myself, and, again, that’s attributed to The Club and the stuff we got to do in Japan and everything like that. But, I mean, yeah, to finally get to be yourself is a complete blessing, so this trip around in WWE has been a whirlwind. It has been great.”

Below is what Anderson said:

“The best part of Festus is that we heard from Talent Relations, the head of Talent Relations, that Vince doesn’t even remember that Gallows was Festus. We go up to the Gorilla position, and they go, the guy will say, Mark Carrano will say, ‘I’m going to go tell Vince and remind him that you were Festus.’ Gallows goes, ‘no, stop!’ I’m like, ‘don’t tell Vince. I need this run right here.’ Like, imagine Vince, ‘you were Festus? Urgh. Lose now.'”
