The two sons of WWE Hall of Famer “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes are current WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes and former WWE Superstar Dustin Rhodes, also known as Goldust.

Goldust and his brother Cody Rhodes have been trying to convince WWE, but more specifically Vince McMahon, to give the brothers a match against one another.

Preferably at WrestleMania.

However, while speaking with Arda Ocal, Goldust explained that the idea had been discussed, but Vince McMahon ultimately responded with a “not yet.”

This suggests that there is hope of a match between the two Rhodes brothers.

WWE had an opportunity not long ago to build towards such a match when Cody was feuding with then-commentator Booker T. Dustin Rhodes made an appearance on the Dec. 30, 2011 edition of SmackDown where Dustin tried to talk sense into Cody.

WWE could have involved Dustin more in this feud and eventually into a brother vs. brother match.

While WWE chose to move Cody towards a WrestleMania match with Big Show instead, Dustin admitted to Ocal that his shoulder just wasn’t ready.

In any case, both brothers were and still are hoping to have a match against one another. Dustin has even begun a Twitter campaign promoting a match with his brother. You can continue to help Dustin and Cody with the hashtag #GoldievsCodyWM29

A WrestleMania match is the only way WWE should even consider Dustin vs. Cody and quite frankly, it is surprising WWE hasn’t taken advantage of such a big match.

Dustin told fellow Bleacher Report Featured Columnist Graham “GSM” Matthews that this match should only happen in WWE and he is absolutely correct. It is too big for any independent promotion.

Not only would this be a brother against brother match, but there are two other reasons why WWE needs to have this match.

First, it would give Cody a big win over a WWE legend.

Goldust is one of the most well-known WWE Superstars from the Attitude Era and one of the greatest WWE Superstars to never hold a World Title.

Even WWE.com agrees.

Cody Rhodes has been WWE Tag Team champion as well as Intercontinental champion, but like his brother, he has never made it to the main event.

How great would it be if a match with his own brother gave Cody the boost he needs to finally reach main-event status in WWE?

Cody Rhodes was on a roll as Intercontinental champion and after him, Dolph Ziggler was my favorite to win Money in the Bank last year.

In any case, another reason why WWE needs to have a Cody vs. Dustin Rhodes match is due to the real-life animosity among the Rhodes family.

Dustin speaks of his relationship with his father in his book, Cross Rhodes: Goldust, Out of the Darkness.

WWE loves to take real-life situations and use them in storylines, such as Jerry Lawler’s heart attack, Lita cheating on Matt Hardy with Edge and CM Punk mocking Jeff Hardy for his drug and alcohol abuse.

WWE would be wise to use some of the real-life situations between Cody, Dustin and their father Dusty in a feud that ultimately leads to a WrestleMania match.

Dustin and Cody are both hoping for their wish to come true in 2013, specifically April 7 and WWE would be wise to give them and all WWE fans what they want.

Because you will never forget the name of…Rhodes.


What do you think? Should WWE book Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes at WrestleMania 29?
