Maxjakes, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
The nipple SHOULD be galvanized pipe and threaded into the cast iron fitting in the wall. It is, no doubt, corroded. Try tapping lightly on the pipe with a hammer as you put pressure on the nipple with a pipe wrench. Vibration works great for loosening corrosion. Good luck.
