A former WWE star has saved his mom on Tuesday night after a crazed neighbor locked himself in his mother's home and set it on fire.
Chris "The Masterpiece" Masters was the hero of the dramatic incident. According to celebrity news website, TMZ, he received a call from his uncle on Tuesday saying that there was an emergency at his mom's home.
Chris Masters, whose real name is Chris Mordetzky, reportedly then rushed into action, rushing over to the property in Los Angeles.
When he arrived he found out that a neighbor had gone crazy and had barricaded himself inside his mother's residence with her.
At that point the neighbor was threatening to set the house on fire and burn everything down if anyone attempted to get inside the home. He did indeed later set the residence on fire and a large blaze was seen at the home soon after.
Emergency services were also called but by the time they arrived at the scene the house was already in a huge blaze.
The former WWE wrestler refused to stand by and wait for emergency services though, and he reportedly spurred into action, tearing out a tree from the ground and throwing it through one of the windows to the home to gain access.
He then jumped through the window and ran through the fiery building to his mother, rescuing her by pulling out from the blaze.
The neighbor was also later rescued from the fire and was arrested on charges of arson.
Masters later posted a message to his fans: "Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. AHole got his from me!!! And is in jail as I type this. Moms resting comfortably with me at my place."
