Earlier today on his ESPN show, host Colin Cowherd blasted CM Punk for a comment he made on Twitter regarding The Ultimate Warrior. The comment, posted via the @TeamCMPunk Twitter account, stated Ultimate Warrior’s death was not a result of drug abuse, and Cowherd went on to say Warrior’s death was not surprising considering the lifestyle of a pro wrestler.

The problem with Cowherd’s attack, however, is that the @TeamCMPunk Twitter address is a fan parody account, and is not actually CM Punk’s real Twitter account, which has been inactive since he left WWE back in January.
