Fans could be in store for a clash between brothers at WrestleMania 28, as rumours have emerged.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that a match between current Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and his brother Dustin Rhodes, known in the ring as Goldust, is being considered in the near future.

However, it is Goldust himself who wants such a match to feature on "the grandest stage of them all," and he feels that extra stipulations should be added, specifically his career versus his brother's Intercontinental Title.

On Twitter, Goldust began a petition to get the match booked, posting:

With your voices heard to @WWE, goldust vs cody at wm28…..ic title versus career. For the haters can hope i lose to cody and retire, teamgoldie can hope for an ass whoopin for the ages and new ic champ.

Here’s the deal…..the fire in me is too strong to lose to my move stealing lemmule of a brother….experience everytime.

His ic title … career…..i would whoop him, take back My ic title and shatter all his dreams. Only teamgoldie can make this happen…u know how much it means to me.

WWE officials are apparently receptive to the idea, but not at WrestleMania. Goldust, currently a WWE trainer and producer, is a 21-year veteran of the wrestling business, but has always been a niche character rather than a main-event player in Vince McMahon's wrestling industry.

Cody Rhodes, in contrast, is expected to do great things with the company and is currently embroiled in a feud with wresting veteran and SmackDown announcer Booker T.

In 2002, Booker T and Goldust were flamboyant tag-team champions, suggesting that any feud between the Rhodes' brothers could be instigated via that.

Since Goldust and his father, wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes, appeared backstage at Tuesday's special edition of SmackDown, indications seem to be that moves are being made towards such a rivalry.
