Ex-WWE star Chris Masters saves mom from burning homeNeighbour allegedly set place ablaze after suffering meltdown
Former WWE wrestling star Chris "The Masterpiece" Masters turned real-life hero Tuesday night after saving his mother from a fire at her Los Angeles home.
Masters reportedly raced to the property after receiving a call from his panicked uncle, claiming a neighbour had suffered a meltdown and locked himself inside Masters' mom's home.
The intruder threatened to burn the building down - with Masters' mom inside - if anyone tried to force their way in.
He then proceeded to start a blaze as soon as police arrived on scene.
Masters, real name Chris Mordetzky, used his shear strength to uproot a tree before hurling it through a window where his mother was hiding, allowing him to reach in and rescue her, according TMZ.com.
"(I) pulled down a tree to bust my mom's windows open and get her out of the house," Masters explained on Twitter. "Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. (A**hole) got his from me!!! And is in jail as I type this. Moms resting comfortably with me at my place."
Cops arrested the neighbour and he is currently being held on arson charges.
