Haystacks Calhounian New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, despite his bridge woes, has been relatively savvy when it comes to social media during his time in office.  That is, if you consider having a taxpayer-funded videographer pop up his Rock-like verbal smackdowns on Garden State residents at town hall meetings “savvy.”
News broke last night that the King Kong Bundy-sized chief executive of the state released a video where he looked to squash pension reform critics like they were Special Delivery Jones at Wrestlemania, using former Nation of Domination militant Dwayne Johnson.
Per NJ.com:

The governor’s office spliced some shots of the one of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s movies in the video that featured Hollywood-movie explosions and clips of Christie talking about pension reform.

Accoring to WNYC’s Matt Katz, the Rock asked not to be in the video. Beyond that, the governor’s office has been silent on the quick removal.
Prior to the removal, MyFoxPhilly noted:

The movie-trailer-style video posted to Christie’s YouTube channel says it’s from “Statehouse Studios” – complete with a screen indicating it’s “Rated R For Reform.” It uses dramatic music, movie footage and language as well as some guest appearance from actor and wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to portray the battle in epic terms.

Unnamed sources claimed Christie smelled what he Rock was cooking, and unsurprisingly couldn’t help himself.

Yesterday in Minneapolis, former Twinkie Bert Blyleven teamed up with 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey to face batters in a Wiffle ball battle heading into the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

(I’m guessing Mike Scott was busy)

Blyleven pitched his iconic curveballs, and every batter who struck out took a pie in the face. For every pie thrown, 2 GINGERS donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, resulting in a combined total of $10,000.

Baseball, whiskey, pies and helping wounded veterans?  That’s America.  Count us in.

Scott Hall and Kevin Nash - WCW Monday Nitro [October 11th, 1999]
Even though Hollywood Hogan beat Kevin Nash in a Retirement Match at the WCW Road Wild PPV, “Big Sexy” still ended up the center of attention two months later by showing up with Scott Hall on Monday Nitro as “fans”. Whenever Nash was asked about coming back to WCW, he replied that he’d return around July 2012, when he’ll be the “right-age to main event WCW again”.
Nash’s retirement would last another month as he eventually squared off against Sid Vicious in a Street Fight match on November 15th.
