If someone makes a plot and efforts to put barriers in someone's way that they fail their goals or don't get success, what idiom is used for this situation?

A. to cut others' leg
B. to cut others' ladder
C. to pull others' leg

Can we say:

X cut Y's legs so that Y doesn't get permission.


I wouldn't really use any of those expressions, how about:

X got in the way of Y so that Y doesn't get permission
