Something broke in there. No way your flywheel is connected to the crank if you can rotate it by hand. Could have sheared the bolts, or broke the flexplate. I've broken flexplates around the bolts before, but I would imagine that would make some noise. Either way you'll probably have to pull the trans 2 find out.
