Default Rear diff blew on interstate now drive shaft doesn't want to turn

Long story short my rear diff broke the cross pin in my r160 and cause the diff to lock up at about 60-65 mph. When it happened I put it in to neutral as fast I could and coasted to the shoulder, because by that time the diff broke apart and freed up. I got a new r160 but when I went to put it in today I realized the drive shaft didn't want to turn by hand like normal then I got in and shifted through the gears with the car off and it no has trouble getting into reverse (all of this is with the car turned off). I even tried to let it roll with the car in neutral and clutch pushed in. It would only move if my brother pushed it, and that's with it sitting on a down hill slope. The car has a 5 speed with PPG 1-4. Help lol any ideas to what it could be? I'm leaning towards the center diff but the reverse situation is throwing me off?

So I pulled out the center diff and sure enough it had a broke spider gear and was bound up.
