Rob McElhenney has responded to Paul Rudd's video showing the exact moment he and Ryan Reynolds 'blacked out' during Wrexham's title win.

Wrexham were promoted to the football league after an incredibly 3-1 victory over Boreham Wood over the weekend (22 April), and let's just say the co-owners of the club were beyond chuffed.

Fans went absolutely wild at the final whistle as McElhenney and Reynolds watched in amazement at the historic victory.

The dynamic duo took over the club back in November 2020 after forking out a hefty $2.75 million (approximately £2.2 million) to call it theirs.

Wrexham hasn't placed in the National League for a whole 15 years since dropping out of League Two back in 2009.

But, given the events on Saturday, it's clear that McElhenney and Reynolds know exactly what they're doing when it comes to football.

Making history, the pair's persistence and passion has landed the Welsh team the exciting new promotion after seizing the winning title from Notts County's grasp.

Luckily, for Wrexham supporters, the two A-listers have done a pretty good job thus far as huge swathes of fans ran onto the pitch following the whistle signalling the end of the match.

As the festivities commenced, McElhenney and Reynolds shared a heartfelt hug in footage that was captured by none other than Paul Rudd.

An odd crossover, we know, but nonetheless very much so welcomed.

The Deadpool star uploaded the clip to Twitter shortly after the win with the caption: "Rob and I kinda blacked out during this moment, but somehow we’ll never forget it."

Since then, the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia comic has also taken to the platform to respond to Rudd's video, which captured the historic moment.

Yesterday (23 April), McElhenney reposted the clip and revealed to his one million Twitter followers: "You can see something leave both of our bodies at the same time.

"And then we’re filled back up with an indescribable amount of joy and gratitude."

The actor went on to offer a tribute to the loyal Wrexham fans who have been patiently waiting for this monumental achievement for over an entire decade now.

He added: "We can hear how it feels to the town and that is what is most important to us. I think this is a moment of catharsis for them and celebration.

"For us to be welcomed into their community and welcomed into this experience has been the honour of my life."
