Former WWE wrestler Chris Masters saved his mother from a fire at her home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
A neighbor apparently broke into the house and barricaded himself inside Diane Mordetzky's home. Police arrived on the scene, and Masters' uncle, who lives nearby, called Masters to let him know what was happening.
Masters, whose real name is Chris Mordetzky, arrived just as the suspect started a fire in the house in an apparent attempt to keep police out. Masters broke the front window and pulled his mom to safety as police rushed the building and apprehended the suspect.
"Pulled down a tree to bust my mom's windows open and get her out of the house," Masters said on Twitter. "Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Moms (sic) resting comfortably with me at my place."
Masters, 30, had two stints with WWE, last working with the company in 2011. He currently wrestles worldwide on the independent scene.
