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

Apparently, a neighbor 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 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 resting comfortably with me at my place."
