Ryan Reynolds couldn’t stop his pretend alter ego, Deadpool, from cutting in on Rob McElhenney’s “Welcome to Wrexham” Creative Arts Emmy Awards win over the weekend. 

Reynolds posted the video to X, formerly Twitter, Sunday, stating, “Whoo!! Wow, umm, Mr. Lively couldn’t be here to accept this broken Emmy so he sent me on his behalf.”

“First and foremost, Wrexham, we love you. Thank you for letting Rob and the other guy tell your story. Cymru am bith, b—-es,” he added. 

“I’d also like to thank the Academy for this honor and for not asking us to attend the televised awards show with the real celebrities,” he went on.

He then noted, “I’d also like to thank FX and Disney for their support, and in exchange Mr. Lively promises to not f–k up my next movie.”

He also put the Oscars on notice in classic Deadpool fashion. 

This came after Deadpool, or Reynolds (whichever he is at the moment), spent the weekend watching the Wrexham A.F.C. soccer championship with Hugh Jackman and posted about it to Instagram.

Jackman supposedly answered, “It isn’t. it’s broken,” leading Reynolds to declare, “I love this man.”
