Cody Rhodes on facing Goldust at WrestleMania 30, becoming tag team champions

One year ago, the idea that Cody Rhodes and his brother Goldust would be tag team champions one day seemed ludicrous. Now, they're just that and a looming match between the two at "WrestleMania 30" is looking more and more like it's going to happen.

It wasn't that long ago that Goldust, a fairly big deal during the Attitude Era but one who had faded into obscurity in recent years, was trying to remain relevant by campaigning for a match against his brother, Cody Rhodes, at WrestleMania. In fact, he's been trying to make that happen for years, pitching it to WWE brass time and again.

No one was biting.

My oh my how quickly things can change.

Indeed, a hot storyline struggle between The Authority and the entire Rhodes family reignited a flame that no one knew still existed and now Goldust is doing some of the best work of his career in a tag team with Cody. They're actually the champions of a division that looks as healthy as it has in years.

In an interview with, Cody talked about how shocking it is that things have turned out the way they have:

"I think if anything it's a shock. Being in his 40's I didn't expect him to return with the surge that he returned with. Some people will give you that target age for people in their prime. I can tell you that Dustin is 44 and he's in his prime. He's the best he's even been. He's doing things he hasn't done since he was 20-something and he's as healthy as a horse. For me, it's just a shock. I never expected to be in a tag-team, nonetheless being the tag-team champions with my brother and that 16-year age difference and the complete opposite ends. Him and I are nothing alike so it's really just been a fun shock."

And what of that WrestleMania showdown?

"I can't deny the fact I've heard all these rumblings of Goldust versus Cody Rhodes and all I can say is that if it's something the fans want, if it's something the WWE Universe wants, then they'll get it. And it's not always right away. And there's more things going on and there's a lot of 'that's best for business expression' but it it's something that fans want, I could see it being a very high possibility."

So not only are we getting an awesome tag team between two newly inspired brothers who are going all out every night and entertaining the hell out of us but when they do break up it's probably going to lead to a match at WrestleMania, where they will undoubtedly bring the best out of each other once again.

Let's just enjoy this, Cagesiders. It's not often we get it this good.
