Pipe will NOT budge HELP!!!!!!!

I am updating my bathroom and trying to replace the tub spout. We finally got the spout itself off but the way it came off was the pipe broke. Now I cannot get the pipe out of the wall. My home was built in 1950 so the pipe has formed a weld tight bond where it has rusted. I cannot saw the pipe off as it is in the wall. I have tried solvents and heating the pipe with a torch. I even tried applying wax to the heated pipe. It still will NOT BUDGE. When they built the house, they plastered the pipe in the wall as well. I have free the pipe by chiseling out the plaster from around the pipe. Nothing. won't budge!!!!!!!

It broke off with an inch left sticking out of the wall but we ended up having to cut it off at the elbow and cut a slit into the remainder of the elbow to get it of. Now we just have to get the o-rings to reconnect the hot and cold supply. Thanks for your reply though.
