Can a cylindrical chain-link fence post “twist” out using a oversized vice

Tried the water/2 x 4 method, tried the water/car jack method, tried the water/pick up method, chain-link fence post won’t budge. Does the concrete have enough of a “grip“ on the smooth metal to prevent it being able to be twisted out if I used a sledgehammer to whack an oversized vice grip clamped onto it?
I’m thinking about using a metal grinder to cut it out but I would want to have some thing covering the remaining stub since tires will be going over it

Not sure what you're doing but... no.... a metal fence pole will not just "spin" out of the concrete.

You've got two choices. Get a shovel and dig the post & concrete out of the ground. Or, dig down to the concrete and cut off the pipe, then cover it with dirt leaving the concrete buried in the ground.

after trying the other methods shown online, I ended up taking Pilot Dane's advice as I noticed these poles were embedded within a huge amount of concrete
