A truly incredible story from the world of professional wrestling, after former WWE star Chris “The Masterpiece” Masters saved his mother from a crazed neighbor who had barricaded himself and Masters’ mom inside her house and was threatening to burn down the building…and everyone in it. Masters (real name Chris Mordetzky), had been alerted to the trouble by his uncle, and arrived at his mother’s Los Angeles home shortly after receiving his panicked uncle’s phone call. The ex-WWE wrestler called cops, and as soon as police arrived on scene, the lunatic neighbor started a blaze inside the home. Masters, sensing his mother was in mortal danger, did something so incredible you would think it had been scripted by Vince McMahon himself. Using only his brute strength and incredible will, Masters uprooted a tree with his bare hands and threw it through a window in a room where his mom was hiding from her captor. He then reached inside the busted window and pulled his mother to safety. Cops were able to arrest the neighbor, who is being held on arson charges, but not before the Herculean Masters got a few licks in on the dude. The Masterpiece tweeted a photo of the aftermath… Heres the aftermath.So thankful my moms alive!!!!!!!!! twitter.com/ChrisMasters31… — Chris Masters (@ChrisMasters310) March 20, 2013 As well as uploading a few more pics to his Instagram account that really shows how much damage was done to the house, as well as his arm after uprooting a tree…WITH HIS BARE HANDS (@ChrisMasters310)… I can only imagine what the neighbor must look like after Masters got his hands on him. Props to The Masterpiece for showing restraint and not killing the guy who tried harming his mother when he had the chance, because that’s something that a great majority of us would not—or could not—do if put in the same situation.
