Rob McElhenny begged his Twitter followers for a stream to watch Wrexham’s match against Maidenhead United on Monday amid his potential takeover with Ryan Reynolds.
The Hollywood actor is plotting to make the stunning move to take over the club with the Deadpool star and has been keeping tabs on the club’s progress as the takeover process moves on.
Though McElhenny ended up disappointed on Monday night as Wrexham were beaten 1-0 at the Racecourse Ground by the Magpies, who picked up their first points of the National League season at the fourth time of asking.

The It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia actor tweeted from America before the game: ‘No live stream for @WrexhamAFC in the States. Help! How do I watch? Anyone?’
One fan suggested that he should find an illegal stream to watch the game and mocked an It’s Always Sunny intro in the process.
McElhenny replied: ‘I’m gonna guess it’s not a great look for potential Chairmen to be breaking international piracy laws, so I’ll pass on this suggestion. But I found an audio link.’

The Hollywood actors are prepared to invest £2million into the fifth-tier club and the potential new buyers are dedicating their time to follow the club.
For the club’s opening match of the 2020-21 season earlier this month, McElhenny was photographed tuning in to Wrexham’s 2-1 win over Boreham Wood whilst taking a break at a movie set.
McElhenney captioned the photo: ‘Multi-tasking on set with Wrexham AFC. Let’s go lads.’
