Ex-WWE Superstar

Saves Mom from Burning House

0320_Burning_house
Former WWE superstar Chris "The Masterpiece" Masters saved his mother from burning to death by uprooting a tree with his bare hands and using it as a battering ram to enter her house.

Masters -- real name Chris Mordetzky -- tells us, he rushed to his mother's L.A. home yesterday after his uncle called and said a neighbor had gone crazy and barricaded himself inside her house.

When Chris showed up, the neighbor was shouting through the front door that he would burn the place down if anyone tried to gain entry.

Chris says he tried talking sense into the guy, but he wasn't having it -- so Chris called the cops ... but when they showed up, the neighbor set the house on fire.

Chris jumped into hero mode -- tearing a tree out of the ground and tossing it through a window.

Chris reached through the window and removed his mom from the inferno ... at which point police rushed in and arrested the neighbor on arson charges.

The man is currently still in custody. It's unclear why he snapped.

One thing's for sure ... Chris does a mother proud.

That crazy guy is lucky Chris was in a rush to save his mom. I've just got an average build but I know I'd tear that guy apart if he tried to do that to my mom. I can only imagine what would happen if I had a build like Chris.

This is not a recent picture of him. After getting busted against the WWE wellness policy he shrank down like bane in the cheesey batman movie. He does not deserve another run lack of in ring ability was his downfall.
