Wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan had a surprise message for Flyers fans in the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday afternoon.

But the Flyers kept the message hidden until the game was well in-hand with four minutes left in the third period.

Hogan then appeared on the big screen to deliver a playoff message:

"Hey Flyer fans! This is the real Hulk Hogan," Hogan said. "I know you’ve been saying your prayers and eating your vitamins, but I’ve got one thing to say: ‘Whatcha gonna do when Flyers mania runs wild on you?!?!’"

Hogan’s virtual appearance, in which he ripped off a Flyers shirt, received a huge ovation from the 20,092 jammed into the building.

The fascination with Hogan began with a look-alike, Penguins fan Cy Clark, was dancing around Scott Hartnell behind the Flyers’ bench on April 1.

Hartnell gave Corbin the trademark “I can’t hear you” signal - only adding to the fanatical on-ice rivalry.

The image captured of Hartnell mocking Corbin was featured on the back page of April 2nd’s Philadelphia Daily News.

Here’s Hogan’s message on Sunday:
