A general rule in wrestling pay-per-views is that the main event should end with a decision. Whether the finish is clean or ends with interference, main events generally have a decisive winner and a loser. However, sometimes a storyline calls for a disqualification, as we saw at Night of Champions, and the WWE has to deal with the fallout from it. On Sunday night, after a hard-fought match against John Cena, Brock Lesnar retained his title after Seth Rollins attacked Cena, drawing a DQ. Rollins, who used his Money in the Bank briefcase to briefly incapacitate Cena, then turned his attention to Lesnar, who had been downed after Cena hit him with an AA for the fourth time in the match.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles announced Tuesday that they've signed right-handed pitcher Luis Vizcaino and infielder Brock Bond to minor league contracts. The deals don't include invitations to major league spring training, so both players will report to the Orioles' minor league camp at Twin Lakes Park. Vizcaino, 39, hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2009 with the Cleveland Indians. Last season, he was 1-3 with a 1.40 ERA for Yucatan of the Mexican League. Over an 11-year career with the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago White Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees, Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs and Indians, he is 35-30 with a 4.33 ERA. He signed a minor league deal with the Yankees back in 2011, but his contract was voided when he suffered an Achilles injury while pitching in winter ball.

The Republican search for a "big name" candidate to oppose Democratic Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes in next year's election is very likely to settle on William E. Brock III, an Annapolis resident who was special trade representative and secretary of Labor in the Reagan cabinet, GOP national chairman during the difficult post-Watergate years and a congressman and senator from Tennessee in the 1960s and 1970s.If he were to defeat Mr. Sarbanes, a long-shot prospect, Mr. Brock would be the first senator to represent two states since the direct election of senators began.

With the November elections less than six weeks away, the polls indicate that Republican Ellen Sauerbrey is in a close race with Democrat Parris Glendening for the governorship of Maryland but GOP Senate candidate Bill Brock has a long way to go in his quest to unseat Democratic incumbent Paul Sarbanes.For Maryland voters this is good news and bad news. The good news is that the Sauerbrey-Glendening contest is etching the issues in vivid contrast. The bad news is that Senator Sarbanes can probably coast to another victory without having to defend his record.

Former Tennessee Sen. William E. Brock, the Maryland GOP's early best bet to unseat Democratic Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes, took to the road yesterday to announce his candidacy and return to the political game.Vowing to get tough on crime, reform welfare and bring more jobs to Maryland, Mr. Brock, 63, kicked off his Senate campaign with five appearances statewide, including one in Baltimore that was well attended by the Republican faithful.With a hint of a Tennessee drawl, Mr. Brock stressed his links to Maryland, leading off his remarks by saying that "this is my home, my children's home" -- a clear effort to deflect inevitable criticism of him as a "carpetbagger."

A "go home" Raw (the last episode before a pay-per-view event) is always watched with extra attention, mostly because critics have the same question -- did this particular show do anything to increase my interest in buying the pay-per-view on Sunday? Lately, many of these critics have answered no. Many people feel that Raw last night was no different -- that it was flat, lacked spark and didn't do very much to push the figurative "buy rate" needle. These, of course, are criticisms that always arise for this particular (mostly monthly)

Senior defenseman Brock Hurley sees something unique with the North Harford boys lacrosse team this season. The Hawks have 15 seniors - and many played together long before high school. It's a bond that Hurley believes can lead to a special season for North Harford. In his second year on varsity at close defense, Hurley is a team captain and responsible for shutting down the opponent's top attackman. Hurley maintains a 3.75 grade point average and plans to study environmental science while playing for Stevenson next year.

Brock Lesnar and Triple H officially sealed the deal on Raw and will meet at Wrestlemania. The two stipulations are that it will be No Holds Barred (similar to their match at Summerslam 2012) and that Triple H's career will be on the line. This, of course, is met with the same questions and concerns from longtime WWE fans whenever a career is on the line. Is it really on the line? From a performer standpoint, Triple H is in terrific shape. You could absolutely see him being able to handle several big matches a year.

It truly is WrestleMania season, isn't it? That's especially apparent when the “part timers” come out to play. Just 24 hours after The Rock won the WWE championship from CM Punk at the Royal Rumble, “here comes the pain” as they used to say. Just as Paul Heyman was going to get “fired” (his theme music conveniently hit just after Vince McMahon got out “YYYOOOUUU'RRREEEE....”). Brock Lesnar returned to WWE and circled the ring, much like his initial return the day after WrestleMania 28. Then he jumped into the squared circle, thought about it, then delivered an F5 to Vince McMahon.

When it comes to WWE pay-per-views, four events on a crowded calendar stand out as special each year: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series. Collectively known as the "Big Four," these are usually supercards for WWE standard and turning points in the major ongoing stories in the company. This year, the event is also representing a change from recent trends, as more than just a handful of matches are being announced before the show. Recently, it hasn't been surprising to see three or even four bouts added to PPVs without advance notice.

What a difference in the crowd from Raw in Miami on April 2 to Raw in D.C. on April 9. It was essentially the difference between a rock star show and an indy act. Yes, Miami's crowd had many WWE diehards who made an entire WrestleMania weekend of it with Raw as their final event (unless they traveled to Orlando for Smackdown). Those crowds are typically the loudest. But the crowd in Washington seemed to buy tickets and be content to sit on their hands. I don't often make comparisons to Corpus Christi, Texas (which I deem the quietest WWE audience in the world)

  WWE wasted no time in allowing John Cena and Brock Lesnar to get physical -- and the result was magic. For the past year, Cena and The Rock were kept apart, competing on the microphone rather than in the ring. WWE appears set to go a completely different direction with Cena's newest foe. After General Manager John Laurinaitis introduced Lesnar with a glowing welcome, the former UFC champion took to the mic. But before long, Cena would emerge. And in uncharacteristic fashion, Cena let his actions speak louder than his words, slapping Lesnar.
