Christie, Rock still buddies

Despite a very public incident last week, Gov. Chris Christie and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remain on good terms.

Christie’s office released a mock movie trailer about his proposed pension and benefit reforms titled, “No Pain, No Gain,” which even featured a cameo clip of movie/wrestling star.

The only problem was that Christie’s office never received permission to use the scene, and The Rock asked that the clip be taken down.

Johnson said he has no personal feelings on Jersey pension reforms, but did not want to be featured in a video for an issue he had nothing to do.

The video was pulled shortly after it was released last week, but re-posted and re-edited without The Rock.

Johnson said he still considers the New Jersey governor a ‘buddy.’
