Colin Cowherd is no stranger to pro wrestling fans and I'll admit, I'm actually a fan of the ESPN radio personality, however, he had a glaring error during the 11 AM ET hour of his "The Herd" radio show on Friday.

Cowherd called out CM Punk, who he referred to as "Mr. Punk," for Tweets he made about the death of the Ultimate Warrior. The problem is, Punk hasn't commented on the death of Ultimate Warrior and hasn't used his verified Twitter account since departing WWE back in January.

While Colin is an entertaining guy, he embarrassed himself and is now in the unfortunate category of Nancy Grace.

11:49 AM ET Update: Colin Cowherd was actually referencing a fan account located at Twitter.com/TeamCMPunk. Oh dear, Twitter verifies accounts for a reason. End update

">@CMPunk hasn't Tweeted since January. Whoever told you that is wrong.

So @ESPN_Colin read Tweets from a fake Twitter account and attributed them to @CMPunk on @TheHerd. Twitter verifies accounts for a reason
