It seems that former WWE star Festus, also known as Luke Gallows, will be missing several weeks of Impact Wrestling TV.
During a segment on a recent taping of Impact, Ethan Page informed Josh Alexander that Doc Gallows will be missing between four and six weeks of TV, which would presumably rule him out for the rest of the year.
The aforementioned segment came before Page’s match on the show, which had he won it, could have given The North a shot at the Impact tag belts Gallows and Karl Anderson currently hold.

Gallows and Anderson had teased that, due to Gallows’ absence, Page would be facing a “phenomenal” opponent, which turned out to be former WWE star Hornswoggle dressed as AJ Styles. ‘Swoggle won the match, meaning The North would not be getting a shot at the tag titles.
Swoggle will likely have used his status as Vince McMahon’s son to his advantage.
Gallows and Anderson have held the tag belts since November 14’s Turning Point show. They are also current QuizzleMania tag team champions, which is likely more important to them.
