Nick Paglino

Chris MastersYahoo.com is reporting that former WWE star Chris "Masters" Mordetzky taped a segment that will air on "Good Morning America" tomorrow, covering his rescue of his mother from her burning home, and the following is an excerpt from the report:

The 6-foot-4, 265 pound wrestling star "bear-hugged" a 10-foot ficus tree standing in the way of the window to his mom's room and wrenched it out of the way so he and police could break the window and pull his mom to safety.

"It's not really a tree that's meant to come down but basically I gave it a bear hug and got the tree down," Masters, 30, told ABCNews.com. "I told the police officers, 'Break the windows. Break the windows. My mom is in this room and we've got to get her out.'"
