— As seen last night on Friday Night SmackDown, CM Punk reintroduced a reformed Luke Gallows, formerly Festus. It was explained that Punk got Gallows off the abusive drugs and away from the neglect that his family had enabled him with for so long.

The WWE website has since added a profile on Gallows at the following link with all references to his former character removed.

This is actually his fourth persona in WWE as he previously played an imposter Kane and “The Freakin’ Deacon.”
