Have WWE scrapped plans for Goldust vs Stardust at WrestleMania 31?

WWE likes nothing better than a good sibling rivalry. Matt and Jeff Hardy stole the show at WrestleMania 25 a few years ago, whilst The Bella Twins heated up 2014 when Nikki decided to come clean about her problems with sister Brie. 

This means it should come as no surprise that after winning the tag team championships together, Star and Goldust finally imploded, and set up what was going to be a career defining match for the man formerly known as Cody Rhodes. 

There was speculation before the two faced off at Fastlane last month that this would be Goldust's final WrestleMania, with the legend wanting to bow out with a match against his brother. 

The WWE Universe welcomed this, sentimentality is something that is lost in wrestling a lot of the time, so it made sense to allow Goldust his farewell match with a family member. 

However, their match at Fastlane had a rather abrupt ending when Goldust went for a crucifix pin on Stardust and the referee counted two, but then after Stardust said something to him, he rang the bell and said it was three.

It is thought that this could have come into play when officials were discussing a final match between the two, and that they wouldn't want the same thing to happen on the "Grandest Stage of them all," so the thought was that the match would be relegated to the kick off show. 

It seems even that isn't going to happen at WrestleMania 31 because this week on SmackDown, Stardust came out and attacked Daniel Bryan in the closing moments of the show and took the Intercontinental Championship, before climbing the ladder whilst holding the title as a way of showing that he was putting his name in the mix for what is thought to be an eight-man ladder match for Bad News Barrett's Intercontinental Championship in three weeks time at WrestleMania. 

Not only that, but earlier in the week Goldust tweeted the following below earlier this week as a hint to what match he is heading towards at the biggest event of the year. 

It is likely that the rivalry between the two brothers will continue in the ladder match and Stardust could cost his brother the title and it could lead to a career threatening match at a later date and that will be how Goldust finally exit's WWE. 

It may well be Goldust's final Wrestlemania as reported, but that doesn't mean he needs to bow out at the actual event. The veteran could stay with WWE for a few more months to further put his brother over and to wrap up the storyline in a more complete way. 

Either way, some of the WWE Universe are disappointed because they wanted the two siblings to have their WrestleMania moment together, but instead both seem to be receiving a shot at the Intercontinental Championship and could play an integral part in what could be the show stealing match this year.
