Woody literally tries to kill Buzz out of jealousy and alienates all his friends because he's acting like a jealous asshole.


ToleranceDeathCamp

But in the end, everyone loves him!


AncientLab2339

Then he met the greatest heel of the 1990’s… Sid. He dismantled all of his opponents and was set to destroy Buzz until Woody interfered with the kendo stick and brought back an armada of faces for the final battle


Wiskid86

Sid Vicious...you've unlocked the door between wrestling and Pixar


The_Ninja_Beaver

I like this ongoing thing where Cody just fails to process/think critically about media lmao.


lakhyj

>alienates all his friends because he's acting like a jealous asshole. Cody and The EVP's aren't on talking terms 👀... allegedly


DGenerationMC

#YOU ARE A HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*"You are a sad, strange little man. You have my pity. Farewell!"* - Arn Anderson, seconds before blowing Cody's head off with his Glock 9 MM


bayleysgal1996

... goddammit, now I'm thinking about how a fan MV set to "Strange Things" would fit Cody.


BigEvil621

AINT NO DOUBT ABOUT IIIIIT


jacobm808

BOOK IT TK LOL


RaveConnoisseur

Quote from the article: In an effort to illustrate that he is not just spouting corporate-speak to swerve the audience that he will never turn heel, Cody admits that the negative reactions do have an effect on him and relates his internal feelings to how Woody feels in the first Toy Story movie when Buzz Lightyear enters the picture and Andy begins to cast Woody aside for the shiny new toy. “Woody was having a hell of a time. He was having a great time. He was getting played with every day. He was the number one toy. Buzz Lightyear shows up, Woody gets thrown in the toy box. If you're wondering how I feel, take a peek at how Woody felt in the very first Toy Story because that, to a degree, has been my role lately. However, with that said in my pettiness aside, I have been doing this since I was 15 years old and that education is invaluable in terms of me not panicking, and in terms of also me enjoying this moment. I've never had a run like this in my career where everything is happening at once personally and professionally. I want to ride the wave. I want to look back at it and enjoy it. But yes, if anyone wants to know perhaps how I feel identify with Woody from Toy Story if that makes any sense. That's where I'm at with it.”


thefinkinthesink

Now THIS would be a hell of an angle if they ran with it


AceMorrigan

Andy just couldn't forgive Woody for getting that stupid neck tattoo.

STOP YOU DIDNT JUST GIVE ARNDY A GLOCK OH MY GOD


DieRad

"ARNDY" ...OH NO


Amanwenttotown

Holy shit haha


a20sidedninja

The neck tattoo!


snowshoeBBQ

Wow. This is without a doubt the best thing I have ever seen on this sub.


seethemoon

Agreed. This destroyed me.


patrickwithtraffic

Holy shit, Mods please put this as a side bar image. JFC my sides are gone


BlindLariat

Doesn't Woody do a little run as a heel cause of all that?


bayleysgal1996

It's been a while since I saw Toy Story, but I'm pretty sure he pushed Buzz out of a window, so yeah.


JBB9386

Buzz screwed Buzz


ECW-WCW-WWF

It was a different locker room back then.


hitlmao

Woody's gimmick is that he's a cowboy, but he doesn't live the gimmick like Buzz does, so they're mad at each other, which is stupid, but y'know, that's the mindset in the toybox.


EntertainerSome8882

Buzz jumped out the window to escape in an act of cowardism.


DonSoChill

WILL YOU STOP


ViciousPrism

***ARE YOU BLIND?!***


JonasAlbert84

Wasn't he trying to get him to fall between the desk and the wall?


bayleysgal1996

Possibly? I'm pretty sure the original plot was Buzz getting pushed out the window on purpose, at least. Could have been changed when they decided Woody needed to be less of a dick.


ShiningJizzard

That IS what he wanted to do. That’s not what happened. That’s literally the reason for his “misunderstanding,” despite him still being fucking malicious about it.


JonasAlbert84

They Han/Greedo'd him? Is nothing sacred?


bayleysgal1996

Tbf that version was the original draft, it was changed during storyboards. I may have watched the behind the scenes features on Pixar DVD’s way too much as a kid.


patrickwithtraffic

Pretty sure if I recall correctly, Jeffrey Katsenberg (petty asshole) requested that Woody got turned into a bigger dick basically every draft and it got to a point that when people saw an early animation test](https://youtu.be/U-ymVkOPVPg), they realize they went way too far in that mode.


maybe_there_is_hope

Botcha-ma-nia! Botcha-ma-nia! Botcha-ma-nia!


plzsnitskyreturn

Buzz threw himself through the window


CriticalSalt

By accident, yeah. But there’s that infamous original version where he did it deliberately


The_Rabbit42

Woody is a giant asshole throughout most of the first Toy Story Source: I have young children and thus watch Toy Story every single day


cactusxmark

even as a kid i thought he was a dick in the first one and never really forgave him for that during the sequels


JMarcus7

Just be Homelander already! You already have the jacket!

ay1717

The theme song just goes with this so well


Alejandro_404

Cody homelander would be nuts. Please, Cody.


Mat_alThor

Either be Homelander or Son of Fuego.


DBHT14

That's Son of FUEGO: Fuego II please!


TheRedBowl

Oh my god. I could totally see Cody being Home lander. Except Homelander has zero redeeming qualities and even if he is a total powerhouse. Nobody likes him. At least I'm pretty sure. I am someone who roots for the bad guys of they are badass or scary enough. I even want Homelander dead. Fuck that dude


hcr140

He has no redeeming qualities but he's written in a way that makes you at least understand why he is the way he is. Is it justified? Absolutely not, but >!being raised in complete isolation in a lab and being told you're Gods gift to humanity!< would probably fuck you up too.


CMDrunk

Cody Rhodes about to jerk off from the top of the Jaguars stadium to below


annoyinglyclever

He already is. To the public Homelander is a hero. Only The Boys/people on the internet know the truth of how much of an asshole he is.


nomtank

Gonna need QT Marshall to steal his jacket and do a "[Look! I'm Cody! Howdy howdy howdy.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfHyQ4m3BxU)" at some point if that's the case.


NimbleWalrus

Maybe Shark Boy could make a one-off appearance


reduke

Jeff Jarrett: The boos are like white noise to me at this point


Psymon_Armour

He has the easiest delusional-face-who-is-really-a-heel promo ready and waiting. "I started AEW! I'm the EVP! You wanted Sting?! I BROUGHT IN STING! You wanted CM Punk? I GOT CM PUNK IN THE DOOR! The American Dragon is back, and that's all thanks to me! I'm the one with the family legacy, the smokin' hot wife, the beautiful daughter, I've got my own show now! I'm front and center, because I'M THE STAR!"


BoyWithHorns

> because I'M THE STAR!" .........DUST


themxm

Hangman finally wins the Championship only to have heel Cody break the stipulation and challenge for the World Title


XSPenance

*boos intensify*


thefuryx

Cody is Ace from Heels.


ViciousPrism

hitlmao

The toys killed the business by coming to life right in front of Sid.


vDUKEvv

CM Punk Cody’s ear like, “bro you should really check out the first few episodes of Heels”


KDWindowCleaning

Cody......it's going to get worse.....and louder, those BOOs


ItalianNose

Cody should go after Hangman or Punk


lakhyj

All I'm saying is if Cody makes a comeback to BTE should be like this, they've even done a toy story episode on BTE before


TheLightKnight93

He should get a Woody neckerchief to cover up the tattoo.


Shrekt115

Nah he's more than pink bear from Toy Story 3


T3Sh3

Lotso was a great heel. Man, the scene where Woody and the gang were at the incinerator at the dump made me tear up.


Shrekt115

Same That movie in general was a rollercoaster of emotions for me


neverAcquiesce

I sob every time Andy pulls Woody back from Bonnie.


Shrekt115

:'(


Git2k12

Same


drunkentenshiNL

Does that make Buzz Moxley? Cause he wanted to set Woody on fire and we all know Mox has had the same thought. Also Buzz Moxley is a sick name.


pnt510

Sid wanted to set Woody on fire, not Buzz.


MatsThyWit

I feel like Cody views everything through a pop culture lens.


Rocketboy1313

Cody just has that same vibe as when Lex Luthor is a member of the Justice League. Like, it is great he is not out there trying to kill Superman or building killer robots... but you don't trust him and assume he is just one bad day away from building a giant robot to try and kill Superman. Others and myself have compared him to Lex Lugar, a natural heel miscast or dillusionally attempting to be a face.


chorch51

Cody is more like Forky in that he is garbage.


Jaymaniks

Disagree but made me laugh


[deleted]

He has a case of Triple H and Jeff Jarrett Syndrome. Nobody is gonna think you're the hero just because you run the show. It actually makes people doubt your credibility because they wonder if you're going over because you put yourself over. At least Kevin Nash had the decency to be obvious about abusing his power LOL.


gamehawk0704

Cody is aware though.


GreenEyedMonster1001

I don't understand all of the Cody hate, the neck tattoo isn't that bad.


gamehawk0704

I mean, it definetley is.


ihateradiohead

What?


obeyyourbrain

What are we gonna do, shoot him?


NotSoSeriousNick

You gotta a heel in me


jfish718

Well I'll always love Cody Rhodes good or bad, I hadn't seen CM Punk in almost a decade at the show I went to in NJ the other week and was just equally as excited to see Cody Return


Steakchest

Cody is definitely Stinky Pete
