Ryan Reynolds "thought he was going to die" watching Wrexham

Ryan Reynolds "thought he was going to die" watching Wrexham

Reynolds clearly loves watching his team, but the Hollywood actor nearly came to an unfortunate ending at the Racecourse Ground.

Ryan Reynolds has revealed that supporting Wrexham during one game meant he thought he was 'going to die,' but fortunately he held on.

Reynolds has won many fans over with his ownership of the National League club, especially from their supporters as they sit top of the table.

The Hollywood actor, along with co-owner Rob Mcelhenney launched the Disney + docuseries on the team, making them one of the USA's most popular English football teams, with even Will Ferrell visiting recently.

They've added star power on the pitch recently too, with former England goalkeeper Ben Foster stepping out of retirement to join them again.

The team will soon be taking on Manchester United, in a preseason friendly, by which point them hope to be a Football League team, although fans aren't too keen on the ticket prices.

Should they make it to League Two, they are likely to smash records in the National League, but they won't want to miss out like last season, losing in the play-offs.

It wasn't their only big loss last year though, as they also lost the FA Trophy final, getting beat by Bromley at Wembley, but it was the semi-final that nearly killed Reynolds.

The Deadpool star retweeted the highlights from the game, against Stockport, saying, "I’ve never yelled this loud in my life. I thought I was gonna die when he put that ball in the air like that."

The game between the two sides was heading for penalties, when the game reached injury time, and with no extra time in the competition.

That's when Paul Mullins came to the Red Dragons' aid, scoring twice in injury time to ensure that him, Reynolds and the rest of the team were off to Wembley.

Of course, in the end the result didn't matter, with Bromley, who finished 10th in the league, actually defeating them in the final.

Further heartbreak was to come, with Stockport, who lost in the semis, beating them to automatic promotion and Grimsby winning the play-offs.

This season, the Welsh side already have 100 points, with six games to go, although they are only three points clear of Notts County.

They have a game in hand however, and will be hoping to make sure that their famous owner doesn't have to think about death again, by making it far easier for him.
