Luke Gallows Talks Past WWE Gimmicks And Vince McMahon

Speaking to CultOfWhatever, Luke Gallows discusses his original stint in WWE, getting the opportunity to work with childhood heroes Sting and Hulk Hogan in TNA, being a member of the Bullet Club, and more.

On his original stint with WWE (2006-2010), he said, “My first gig in WWE was being imposter Kane, then Festus before my buddy CM Punk and I created the Straight Edge Society. The Festus character was the brainchild of Vince McMahon, he came up with it and I did it to the best of my ability.

“During the time of the Straight Edge Society, CM Punk was really starting to become one of the top stars on television and they really began to trust him and would give him creative freedom to go out there. Just watching and learning from a guy like that was an awesome experience.

“The way Punk could control peoples emotions and captivate a whole crowd, he is just a fantastic performer, he always was but that is when he was really stepping up and it was a really fun time for me.”

On how he would describe Vince McMahon as a boss, Gallows said, “Vince has never been bad to me, I’ve heard people say things but he’s never been bad to me directly. I’ve not had a tonne of interaction with him, maybe I’ve been in his office two or three times.

“He kind-of directed us on some of the Straight Edge Society stuff as well as the Jessie and Festus stuff. Vince is a larger than life personality; you cannot but admire what he has done for our industry.”
