frozen gear box?

This isn’t a truck but some of you might know what’s up. My buddy calls me and says he was at a red light and ground a gear trying to push it into 1st to take off (clutch in). Then he says he was having a really hard time getting it into any gear but third gear. He parked it and asked if I would take a look. My first thought when he was explaining this was maybe the slave cylinder, but when I looked at it today the thing wouldn’t come out of reverse when the clutch was in, and it wouldn’t shift either when the engine was shut off…so I know it’s not the slave. We rocked the car and when I was rocking the car he was able to get it out of gear but he couldn’t get it into any others unless I rocked it, except third, it went into third fine. Also when the car is in gear and you let off the clutch the car doesn’t move at all, it doesn’t budge, almost like the transmission is completely frozen…I told him to get it towed to a tranny shop…the car is a Mazda 626 I think, any ideas?
