In a story that is as bizarre as it is bad-ass, former WWE superstar Chris Masters saved his mother from her burning home.
Yes, that sounds bad-ass enough on its own, but couple that with the fact that there was a madman inside the house and that Masters ripped a tree out of the ground to break in, and this is already our favorite story of 2013.
TMZ broke the story yesterday and reported the following:
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.
Masters tried to rectify the situation, but that clearly didn’t work as the neighbor lit the Los Angeles home on fire.
Then Masters wrestling instinct kicked in. He went back to his glory days of 2005-06. TMZ reported that Masters was seen “uprooting a tree with his bare hands and using it as a battering ram to enter her house.”
The man is in custody and Masters’ mother is safe and sound. I dare you to try to convince me that wrestling is fake.
