Before Goldust returned to WWE in September of last year as part of the brief feud between the Rhodes family and The Authority (Stephanie McMahon & Triple H), he had spent considerable time campaigning for a match against his brother, Cody, at WrestleMania.
Perhaps it was a ploy to stay relevant, or a desperate bid to work his way back to a prominent role on television. Maybe it was just a dream and the hope that he could fulfill that before it was too late.
Now, after a wildly successful run over the past five months teaming with Cody -- even winning the tag team titles -- Goldust is slamming the door on the two working a match against each other at the "Showcase of the Immortals":
I repeat... I WILL NOT BE FIGHTING MY BROTHER AT MANIA!!!!!!! Time has passed. Think what u want. Wouldnt get the spotlight it deserves.— GOLDUST (@Goldust) February 13, 2014
Who does he blame for this?
Rumors have persisted that the Rhodes brothers will break up soon enough and when they do, a feud will commence that will end with Cody retiring his brother. Perhaps that's still in the plans but if so, the big blow off must be planned for some other event, possibly SummerSlam.
Or Goldust is just kayfabing and we'll get the exact thing he says we won't.
