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.

According to PWInsider.com, Punk is expected to remain off Raw live events for the short term after WrestleMania as well so that he can heal up nagging injuries. WWE feels CM Punk has helped carry the company in recent years so in order to protect their investment Punk is expected to take some time off house shows following 'Mania.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting WrestleMania 29 earning more revenue than last year is very likely.
The price for standard definition viewing of the pay-per-view has increased $5 for this year making it $59.95 and the price of HD has gone up to $69.95 to purchase WrestleMania 29.
Based on annual trends of repeat viewership numbers and people continuing to move to HD, there's a projection of an extra $900,000 profit for WrestleMania 29 at the minimum.
We announced a few days ago that WWE was hiring for a new "Vice President of WWE Kids Entertainment". The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE wants to promote their product even harder to kids and families. Specifically, they want new ideas and initiatives to push the product strong to mothers and their children.
For the new VP position, WWE wants someone with at least ten years of experience in kid programming and is very in tune with pop culture and current trends.

CM Punk's seemingly cold-hearted tirade last week during the WWE tribute to Paul Bearer wasn't at all what it seemed ... because we've learned Paul's family gave its stamp of approval before the shenanigans.In case you missed last week's RAW, the WWE aired an emotional tribute to the late Paul Bearer ... and smack in the middle, CM Punk attacked another wrestler (Kane) with Paul's urn.Paul's son Michael Moody tells TMZ, the act of desecration was pre-planned ... WWE's creative team approached Paul's family for permission before the stunt unfolded on live TV.The team wanted to use the diss to promote next month's Wrestlemania battle between Punk and Undertaker ... and Paul's family was down with it.Michael tells us, "We felt that dad would have wanted us at RAW last week and agreed to the angle … We knew Dad wouldn't have wanted it any other way.”

I saw a good comment on Bleacher Report yesterday on how to appease both sides of the spectrum: split them into their own shows. Have SmackDown for the kids, and RAW for the adults, as well as their own PPVs. Run it a bit like the old draft and have superstars exclusive to each show, with the occasional crossover on Main Event, and the big four PPVs (could also use that to change titles between shows).
Children and mothers? Do WWE want to make any ****ing money, theyve been going in the right direction recently acknowledging how poor the past ten "Cena years" have been, stick with it im actually enjoying it!
They'll be shooting themselves in the foot, **** PG, we want blood, swearing & extreme. Kids & mothers, go watch ****ing Barney instead!
To be honest, that was pretty obvious. Paul himself would have probably approved it too. The only thing I don't want to see happen is for him to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year; it would make it seem like a kneejerk reaction. Would be best to wait until next year to induct him.
