The Royal Rumble always features many memorable moments, but one of the most entertaining from this year's event was the showdown between Cody Rhodes and his real-life brother, Goldust.

Rhodes was already in the ring when the clock counted down to zero and the unmistakable opening of Goldust's entrance music blared throughout the arena.

The crowd popped big for Goldie, who stared at his brother for a moment as he took off his jacket. Cody was telling his brother to bring it, and bring it is what Goldust did.

He rushed the ring and the two engaged, much to the delight of the crowd in attendance. Goldust chants began to echo throughout the arena.

At one point Dolph Ziggler tried to get in the middle of things, but the two brothers took a moment to dispatch of Ziggler before duking it out with each other again.

The way the crowd responded when Goldust came out proves the fans still know and appreciate what he has done for the business.

The fact that Goldust and Cody only had limited contact when Dustin Runnels was under contract to WWE was disappointing, but clearly he is willing to come back for sporadic appearances.

If WrestleMania isn't the place, then another pay-per-view event would be a great setting for the brother vs. brother feud.

WrestleMania, however, would be a great stage for these two to brawl for bragging rights.

Cody is the future of WWE and Goldust represents the previous generation. The feud has many possible layers outside of their blood relation, and WWE would be smart to capitalize on what would obviously be a great match.

Cody Rhodes is one of WWE's most talented workers, and Dustin Runnels was in that same role in the past against the likes of Roddy Piper and Razor Ramon.

Goldust would most likely be willing to put his brother over, which would give Rhodes a boost in his singles career after recently parting ways with Damien Sandow.

A feud like this is a great way to bridge the gap between generations of wrestling fans, too. Both Cody and Dustin are known for being solid workers and pretty good on the mic, which would make this one of the better non-title feuds.

This needs to happen sooner than later. Goldust is in great shape right now, but he won't be able to perform on a high level for very long.

Whether it happens at Mania or down the line, fans would be thrilled to see this family feud be taken into the ring and settled the way it should be: with a pinfall.
