During his first stint with WWE, Hankinson also appeared briefly as an imposter of the wrestler Kane during 2006 and then returned as Festus, a seemingly mentally handicapped character who teamed with Jesse, but the team achieved little success.

After disappearing from television, Hankinson later became the enforcer and “disciple” of CM Punk, sporting a cleaner, militant look, with the Festus character’s “real identity” revealed as Luke Gallows. His first run in WWE ended in 2010.

He is perhaps best known for working for New Japan Pro Wrestling under the ring name Doc Gallows, and he also wrestled prominently for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where he was a member of the Aces & Eights faction under the ring name D.O.C. (Director of Chaos).
