Over the past few weeks, I've talked about how important this summer is to the WWE.  On Monday night, it was shown just how important the company feels the upcoming months are, as we got two big returns in Chris Jericho and AJ Lee. All night, the broadcasters had teased the big return of a former WWE champion. When The Miz came out, the fans, both in the arena and on Twitter, were annoyed, feeling that the WWE had pulled a bait-and-switch. However, midway through his promo, Chris Jericho came out after an absence of nearly a year.

On when he will return to wrestling full time and which company he will sign with: "I haven't really even come that close to getting into specifics of when or where.

Burleigh Manor, Ellicott City Not all the current residents of Burleigh Manor in Ellicott City appreciate the rich history and the meticulous restoration of this 1810 Federal-style brick home. That's because the inhabitants include horses, donkeys, pigs, chickens and a blind mule. Lawrence Cheskin, director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, and his wife, Lisa Davis, bought the home, built by Revolutionary War Col. Rezin Hammond, in the summer of 2012 and began to convert the grounds and outbuildings into an animal sanctuary.

The failure of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization to meet the Dec. 13 target date for the beginning of Israeli troop withdrawal from occupied areas is disappointing. But no one said their historic agreement was going to be easy.The more important target date is April 13, when the Israeli withdrawal is scheduled to be completed.Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Chairman Yasser Arafat may be warriors and adversaries. But they are in this thing together. Neither can succeed without the other succeeding, or fail without the other failing.

Last night's WWE Payback pay-per-view had a little bit of everything. First, there were title changes. Dolph Ziggler returned from a concussion only to lose to Alberto Del Rio in an entertaining match that was eerily similar to Steve Austin vs. Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13 (in the same AllState Arena, then known as the Rosemont Horizon). Dolph (the villain) was cheered throughout the match, while Del Rio (the hero) was vilified by the consistently loud Chicago audience. After winning the gold, Del Rio cut an eyebrow raising promo, further perpetuating his likely turn.

During a phone interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin today promoting WWE '13 and Redneck Island on CMT, I asked “The Rattlesnake” for his thoughts on the controversial moment on Monday night's Raw involving Paul Heyman faking a heart attack (in case you missed it, detailed info can be found in my Raw recap here ). Austin, the most popular superstar from WWE's Attitude Era -- an Era that prided itself on  pushing the envelope and creating controversial situations that would have fans talking -- had an interesting response: "I believe in pushing the envelope in an aggressive fashion.

Jericho picked up the flag, showed it to the audience, threw it down on the ground and kicked it out of the ring . The local police, present at the event, stopped the match and demanded that Jericho give an apology or face incarceration. He did so , and the match resumed. Afterwards, it was announced on WWE.com that WWE suspended Jericho indefinitely for the incident, which later became 30 days.

Personal demons have long been exploited for the sake of advancing a professional wrestling storyline. As a matter of fact, current WWE Champion CM Punk is no stranger to it, as he himself brought Jeff Hardy's history with drugs and addiction into their feud a few years ago. But when it comes to Punk's current battle with Chris Jericho, one has to wonder what exactly is the point? The promo exchange between the two the past few weeks hasn't focused on Punk's demons but those of his family.

Fans had many expectations heading into Sunday night's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, fueled largely by Internet speculation. Rumors had been running rampant of returning superstars, changes to the world title matches and the addition of undercard bouts to round out a four-match card. In the end, some of the expectations proved true while others ultimately failed to materialize. Two injured superstars returned from injury -- albeit in an in-ring segment rather than matches -- while Santino Marella proved doubters wrong and Jack Swagger defended his United States Championship for the first time on pay-per-view.

Jericho, Kan., is the post-apocalyptic town that won't die. Or rather, Jericho, the show based on the post-blast life of that rural town, won't be killed - not if fans have anything to say about it. CBS is wrapping up the show after only one season. A lengthy hiatus in the middle of the season drove away viewers, and Jericho never quite regained the audience that it had during the fall. But viewers reacted with swift fury, and said "Nuts!" to CBS (echoing a line from the show's rousing season finale)

Jerusalem Mill, a small enclave in northern Baltimore County, promises visitors a Williamsburg-in-miniature experience, with one attraction the Virginia destination cannot offer. This 18th-century mill town boasts a l9th-century covered bridge, one that still handles nearly 500 vehicles a day. "Most people are blithely unaware of our little step back in time," said Chris Scovill, village museum curator. "The covered bridge is the press agent for the village. " The 90-foot-long Jericho Road bridge spans Little Gunpowder Falls between Baltimore and Harford counties.
