Ryan Reynolds’ enthusiasm and ecstasy over the win could also be attributed to Wrexham winning over Grimsby Town. The same team had nullified Wrexham AFC’s chances of qualifying for the EFL in the last season. However, the tide changed, and riding on the back of returning Paul Mullin, Wrexham AFC won 3-0 over the visitors. The celebrations took over the Racecourse Ground, snaps of which the Deadpool star captioned as “smiles all over.” 

Donning a green jacket and blue denim, the 46-year-old co-owner also shared his smile while walking across the ground. The team has made substantial and above-par progress in the two years of the Hollywood takeover. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have poured their hearts into the team as it soared to massive heights in a long time. Further, with the recent upticks in performance, Wrexham is gaining and calling for attention from all across the world.
