Hulk Hogan has sent the internet into overdrive, after a photo of him holding a sign saying "Pete Price is a Lizard" went viral.

The wrestling star was pictured holding the sign with a fan, and it's safe to say Pete was pretty shocked.

Earlier today the Radio star begged his Twitter followers to stop tweeting pictures of the infamous 鈥淧ete Price is a lizard鈥?sign.

The catchphrase reached its peak when a flag was held up by a member of the crowd at a packed out ECHO arena wrestling show a number of years ago, displaying the message 鈥淧ete Price is a lizard.?/p>

A tweet with the photograph was retweeted thousands of times, and a Pete Price lizard hashtag even started to trend on Twitter.

But now a new picture of Hulk Hogan has fuelled the rumours even more and despite Pete's protestations that he hates the phrase, he's retweeted it many times to his followers.

Although he takes it in good humour, Pete admits that sometimes people take it too far by posing as fans and then shouting the insult at him once they鈥檝e had a photo taken and walked away.

He said: 鈥淚鈥檝e had a lot worse than 鈥榣izard鈥?said about me, and I do find it quite amusing because it鈥檚 just so strange. It鈥檚 so random.

鈥淲hat I don鈥檛 like is when people are two faced - they come up to me and ask for a selfie and then I can count to 10 and I hear 鈥楶ETE YOU鈥橰E A LIZARD!?- it鈥檚 just two faced and it鈥檚 cowardly.

鈥淎s I鈥檓 out and about in town I can spot the people that are going to call me a lizard, I鈥檓 walking through town and I count them in my head. I can spot them a mile off.?/p>
