Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is apparently a "Hulkamaniac." During Thursday night's win against the New York Giants, Wentz called out "Hulk Hogan" during an audible at the line of scrimmage, as shown in the video below:

The cadence was so noticeable that color commentator Troy Aikman acknowledged it and noted that he was disappointed that he "didn't get to see what Hulk Hogan was going to be," before acknowledging having done advertisements alongside the wrestling legend.

Hogan quickly responded to Aikman's comments by sharing a photo of one of their past ads via Twitter on Thursday night.

Apparently, the power Hulkamania helped propel the Eagles run wild as they cruised to a 34-13 victory over the rival Giants, helping them gain sole possession of first place in the NFC East with a 3-3 overall record.

Wentz recorded 278 yards, as well as a season-best three touchdowns and a 72.2 completion percentage on 26 of 36 passing.

The former No. 2 overall pick has 914 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception during his first four appearances since returning from an ACL tear that occurred late in the 2017 season, which inevitably resulted in the Eagles' first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

New York is currently in last place with a 1-5 overall record following Thursday night's loss.
