    Question *potential spoiler* Shield Match at Battleground

    Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that there is talk of doing a match with The Shield vs. The Rhodes Family at Battleground. The Rhodes team would be made up of Goldust, Cody Rhodes and Dusty Rhodes. WWE using Dusty in the match is still up in the air.

    I don't think the spoiler thing really works if you put what the spoiler is in the title...

    I think this would be an entertaining match assuming Dusty is limited to just standing on the apron for most of the match.

    I'd drag it out a little longer and do it at HIAC instead, but I definitely like the idea.

    Surprised if Dusty is in the match...you know, being 67 years old and so out of ring shape.

    I am all for this. As limited as Dusty maybe, I would bet that guy could still tell a great story.


    Thanks JV for the artwork!!

    I think this match would be really cool!

    With that said, I agree with Champ, I would wait until HIAC to have the match.

    I could see Triple H and Stephanie making Dusty wrestle if he really wants Cody to get his job back. I'd like to see the match happen.

    They wouldn't do a match like this unless Dusty had a medical all clear, especially after what happened to Lawler. This match wouldn't need to be a classic in terms of the wrestling, it'd be so chock full of emotion and have a great story to tell.

    Can't wait to see Rollins over-sell the bionic elbow.

    I can't see Dusty ever stepping foot in the ring for a match again. He's way too old to be wrestling in my opinion and he isn't in all that great shape anyway. Seriously, they won't even let King wrestle. So why would they allow Dusty to?

    Since it would be a tag match, Dusty wouldn't even have to wrestle more than maybe 30 sec. tops.

    Dusty would be fine in a 6-Man as Cody & Dustin would do almost all of the wrestling for their team. He would mainly only be there for image only.

    That's exactly what I'm trying to say.

    I'd be interested in seeing that.

    As mentioned before, Dusty doesn't have to be in the match that long.

    Then have goldust turn heel and blame all his problems on dusty and Cody. He can join the Sheild and they can be called goldsheild

    While the name is funny, that would be stupid. Sheild are fine as a 3 man team and don't need Goldust.

    With that said, even though I don't want to see it, I think a heel turn for Goldust could work.

    He doesn't have to wrestle at ALL. Have Cody and Goldust clear the ring of Ambrose and Reigns and tag Dusty in for a bionic elbow on a groggy Rollins. 1,2,3. Either that or he takes one huge bump (spear from Reigns) and it's over.

    Love this idea of having the Rhodes Family .Vs The Shield.Dusty has to be in the match,it wouldn't make sense if it was Cody,Dustin and lets say Ziggler going up against The Shield.This hole angle is being built as the Rhodes family .Vs the McMahon family.As others have already pointed out I would assume that Dusty would have to get the all clear medically and that Cody and Dustin would wrestle most of the match.While Dusty would just come in for a few minutes or so of work.

    I really think this is a cool idea and would be a nice finale match for Dusty.Having him wrestle with his two sons would have to be a dream come true and also for Cody and Dustin as well.Then maybe going forward have Cody and Dustin become and actual tag team and possibly have Dusty be their manager.

    Here's my problem with it:

    The Shield have to lose. And while I don't have a problem with them losing, I don't think it's wise to have them lose to Cody Rhodes and his part time, one match in three years brother Goldust, and a 67 year old man. Essentially, the team that was beating Cena/Bryan/Kane SuperTeams earlier this year, will be losing to an upper midcarder, a part timer and long-retired wrestler. I'm not sure it's wise.

    I agree that the emotion would be far better if it was Dusty. I understand every single perk to Dusty being there. I really do.

    But...is it possible to use Big Show instead?

    Actually looks more like a Ambrose/Ziggler and Reigns & Rollins/PTP rematch will happen instead.

    I'd be down with the proposed Rhodes vs Shield match. As mentioned, Dusty can stand on the apron for most of the match, and get tagged in at the end for a few shots, followed by bionic elbow and a crossroads by Cody.

    ^ Exactly. Dusty being in the match isn't a big deal at all, he doesn't really have to do anything too physical or take bumps.


    I'd love to see this match. I hope it happens.

    It's not about him taking bumps. It's about the Shield losing to them.

    You lose a lot of the drawing power if it's not "The Rhodes Family." I don't think there's a way around it.

    OK, I thought Cody Rhodes was supposed to be gone for awhile? His marriage isn't until October and he's only supposed to return when his honeymoon after the marriage ends. Is he gonna return and then leave and then return again?

    Otherwise, I like the idea. And like others said, Dusty Rhodes doesn't have to be in the ring for any long extended period of time. Just have him stand on the apron for 99% of the match (wearing a large size black dress shirt and jeans, not the polka dots, of course) and have him be tagged in sparingly to do his punches and body slams and forearms and (most of all) bionic elbows before tagging right back out.
