The belief backstage right now is that Cody Rhodes and Goldust will be splitting up at Elimination Chamber 2014, where the brothers are expected to be involved in a match for the WWE tag titles. A match between the two is still penciled in for Wrestlemania 30.
While many fans know that Cody Rhodes and Goldust are brothes, some do not know that they are actually half brothers. Their father is WWE legend Dusty Rhodes, but they each have different mothers. The wrestling siblings are approximately sixteen years apart in age.
While many are already aware that WWE is not planning on pushing Damien Sandow in the near future, it now looks like he's headed in the opposite direction actually. He only has one televised victory since the year started, and that was a win over Great Khali, a performer on the lower end of the card.
Batista won Royal Rumble 2014 by eliminating Roman Reigns in the end. Other contestants during the match were Alberto Del Rio, Alexander Rusev, Antonio Cesaro, Big E Langston, CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, El Torito, Erick Rowan, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Jack Swagger, JBL, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Kane, Kevin Nash, Kofi Kingston, Luke Harper, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Ryback, Seth Rollins, Sheamus and the Miz.
While he is no longer being pushed as a legitimate threat towards the main event scene, the Great Khali is pulling in a huge salary from WWE still. He is pulling in approximately $974,000 a year, which is mainly due to the fact that he is massively popular in India and generates interest from that market
