Goldust is campaigning on his Twitter for a match at Wrestlemania 28 against his brother, the Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes. Goldust, real name Dustin Rhodes, is a former three time Intercontinental Champion and in the 90′s was synonymous with the title.
Goldust is pitching for a IC Title vs. Career match. He writes;
“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 …..my 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.”
Goldust is currently employed as a trainer and producer in the WWE and has not wrestled since last December when he suffered a shoulder injury. He re-signed with the WWE in October and has been cleared for a return and could be involved in the forthcoming storyline that will pit Cody Rhodes in a feud against Booker T.
Booker T and Goldust are former WWE Tag Team Title holders together and as Goldust has returned many times before at the Royal Rumble, presumably he can get involved after Cody & Booker have had two months of feuding.
Goldust, 42, still has plenty of gas in his tank for more feuds down the road and hopefully he isn’t looking to retire in April. His 2009-2010 run in the WWE saw him wrestle as good as anyone….
