Former WWE star Chris “The Masterpiece” Masters saved his mother from a fire at her home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

According to published reports, the wrestling star – whose real name is Chris Mordetzky – uprooted a tree with his bare hands and used it as a battering ram to enter the burning home.

Mordetzky told TMZ, he rushed to the home after receiving a phone call from his uncle alerting him that a deranged neighbor had barricaded himself inside the house.

The neighbor who was not identified, threatened to set the house on fire if anyone attempted to enter the home.

When Masters arrived to the burning home, he broke the front window and pulled his mom to safety as police rushed the building and apprehended the suspect.
