More on Rhodes vs Goldust

F4WOnline.com is reporting that as a result of Cody Rhodes being booked in the Elimination Chamber Match at the upcoming PPV, it's unlikely that the rumored Rhodes vs Goldust match will take place at WrestleMania 28.

Although the match could still take place at the big PPV, it should be noted that Vince McMahon was down on the idea as of a few weeks ago.
