Did Ryan Reynolds Buy a Soccer Team?
Reynolds and McElhenney did buy a soccer team together. In August 2022, when McElhenney was a guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Reynolds said that he and his wife Blake Lively didn’t always agree on buying Wrexham, mostly because he didn’t tell her until after the deal was done.
“I remember Blake telling me, “I have bad news, and I mean terrible news.” The bad news is that I got back into someone’s D.M.s. The worst news is that I might have bought half of a Welsh football league in the fifth tier.” He said her reaction was “not good,” He joked, “We’re still working through that one.”

Wrexham Real or Scam
Wrexham is a real team, and Reynolds and McElhenney’s purchase and management of the group is a natural source of drama (and humor!). As they say in the summary of Welcome to Wrexham, “Rob and Ryan bought the 5th-tier Red Dragons together in 2020 to make the team an underdog story that everyone would cheer for.

What Happened to Wrexham
In 2011, Wrexham was close to going out of business, and a supporters’ trust took over. The trust’s 2,000 members voted overwhelmingly in favor of giving Reynolds and McElhenney control of the team. According to The Athletic, 98% of the football club’s trust was happy to provide power to the funny men.
At the time of the sale, Spencer Harris, one of the trust’s leading members, told The Athletic, “In the year 2020, it’s a fascinating story. There’s been so much bad news about people dying, families not being able to see each other, and people worrying about their jobs, but this is like a ray of sunshine.
It’s a nice story, that’s all. But it will feel like death for me because I’ve spent so much time with the club, leaving a big hole in my life. I don’t think they’ll need my help or advice, but I’ll always be there for them if they do.”
In late May 2022, after an exciting season, Wrexham didn’t make it to the playoffs, but they did better overall than they had in a decade. McElhenney said it would only get better from there.
How Did Ryan Reynolds and Rob Mcelhenney Meet
Reynolds said he met McElhenney when he slid into McElhenney’s direct messages.
“We met on Facebook. When I checked my Instagram D.M.s, I saw that he had written to me, “In a BBC interview, McElhenney talked about what happened. “After that, we became friends, and we just texted each other now and then.”
Before they bought Wrexham together, they had never met in person. This was McElhenney’s idea.
“I was in the shower when I thought, ‘You know, he’s very business-minded. I wonder if he’d be interested in joining me as a full partner since he could make this thing known much more,'” McElhenney said. “I got out of the shower and asked Kaitlin, “What if I ask Ryan to be a full partner? Do you think he would?” She said, “I guess that depends on whether or not your ego can handle sharing the screen with Ryan Reynolds.”
