Chris Masters

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.

I was wondering does anyone know what Ric Flair's cardio exercise routine was like in his prime in the 80s?

I heard he had one of the best cardio conditioning for a wrestler and would always do cardio in th emorning even after staying up late, drinking, etc the night before.

I heard Rock has already committed to the next WM, so Cena winning the upcoming match so there will be a huge rubber match at WM30 makes more sense.

I haven't had the chance to watch Raw for the past 3 or 4 weeks. Good to know, I haven't missed much.

One question, though, is Jericho doing a program and a match at Mania? I assume he'll be part of the match vs the Shield?

I think Jericho will be in a match with either fandango or in a triple threat with barret and miz

Its the shield vs sheamus orton and big show.

Henry vs ryback

Kane & dbryan vs big E langston and ziggler

I haven't been interested in wrestling since I was a kid, but what still interests me TO THIS DAY is the behind the scenes stuff. Why do certain wrestlers get over but not others, how are storylines configured, why do some pushes work but not others?

Then the techniques the wrestlers are using. How to get heat from the crowd, how they communicate with their "opponents." Just the mechanisms of pro wrestling that makes the engine run. The storylines are so boring to me now, but all the other stuff is interesting as hell.

Anyone know of any good books or dvd's on topics like this?

There's a ton of shoot interviews you can watch on Youtube that detail a lot of behind the scenes stuff. Just type a name of a wrestler and the word shoot and off you go.

kind of the same way...going with patrick chewing said, i'd also highly recommend 'beyond the mat' (mostly the mick foley story) and 'wrestling w/ shadows' (kind of details bret hart's montreal screwjob).

really hard to explain why you like wrestling to non-wrestling fans. still get judgmental stares. i just try to say it's a male soap opera. but i get it...there's a stigma or whatever. you either get it or you don't. and that's not to say wrestling fans are some higher breed. it comes down to personality and what you find entertaining.

i just gotta say some non-wrestling fans are ignorant. i loved the south park episode making fun of it all. there's definitely those around that kind of take it that literally. i'm able to laugh it and there's still some others that think that's what REALLY happens. i've tried to get a couple of my friends into wrestling and they just can't, so it's like whatever. folks screaming it's fake without realizing yes, it's scripted...but these dudes still go out there 300 days a year on the road. the vast majority of ppl that go into wrestling schools don't make it and those that do usually flounder in the indies. not to say that a ton of those indie guys are talented, but it's just not an easy place to break through.

don't watch nearly as much these days though. i might not even watch mania. the build up has been shitty and there's really nothing there that makes me want to really tune in.

the undercard looks like garbage. no real conflict. henry was hot last year and they're pitting him against ryback? ryback has lost all steam now, so i don't get his pre-shield push. shield vs orton/big show/sheamus? is this the survivor series? and team hell no vs. langston and ziggler is the best they could do for the tag match? at this point, i just think wwe believes ziggler is too corny to make it to the main event. fandango in a possible triple threat match? for mania? people have already hit on the HHH vs. brock thing. HHH has been hinting at retirement for a while especially his last match. they do that stipulation too much. just a lame stipulation and i'd rather have seen brock vs. taker or punk.

seriously, i couldn't be less excited for mania. i'm almost positive cena will go over the rock. who's the next big star? are they just gonna piggyback off cena and rock?

What's wrong with that? Curtis has been working his ass off for years in NXT, was given this shitty gimmick and is actually making it work, the dude is getting some real heat from the crowd..

Kind of like the 2013 version of goldust.

Also, its something different from the regular bland joe blow they always try to debut, Fadango is a character which is something that's been missing from WWE for awhile now. And its a good sign that he's getting such a push, they've done a really good job at building interest for this character.

He'll go over Jerich at WM no doubt

After a few videos of him, I'm beginning to see this. I'm actually liking his gimmick. It's definitely something entertaining and interesting, unlike most of their superstars at the moment.

I just hope Jericho doesn't job to him, though. A good match is all Fandango really needs.
