An ex-WWE superstar rescued his mother on Tuesday night after a delusional neighbor locked himself inside his mom's home and set it on fire.
Chris "The Masterpiece" Masters saved his mom in the incident after the wrestler allegedly received a phone call from his uncle on Tuesday saying that there was an emergency at his mother's residence, TMZ reported.
Masters, whose real name is Chris Mordetzky, rushed to the property in Los Angeles and upon arriving at the scene he found out that a neighbor, who was apparently in the midst of a meltdown, had barricaded himself inside Masters' mother's home.
The neighbor reportedly threatened to burn the house down if anyone tried to get inside the residence. he eventually followed through and set the residence ablaze shortly after.
Emergency services were then contacted but by the time they arrived at the scene the home was already in flames.
The former WWE star, who refused to stand by and wait any longer, entered the home by breaking a window with a small tree he ripped from the ground. He then reportedly jumped through the broken window to save his mother, which he did by pulling her out of the fire. The neighbor was shortly after rescued from the fire and arrested on charges of arson.
Masters posted a message to all his fans Tuesday:
"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."
