Oh my.

Big mistake with installation.

Never ever do the installation in that manner.

Always install as a complete unit.

I hope your convertor and pump aren't toasted.

Re: torque converter stuck to transmission

Gotta guess that you have jammed the conveter into the pump gear.
Possible you have broken the pump gear causing the jam.
I agree, you are going to have to pull hard or pry the converter loose.
Then remove the pump and check the pump gear.
