Grip pressure & wrist action

In hitting or golf there is generally discussion of wrist action. I will call it breaking/cocking/uncocking the wrist. If I place both hands on a bat or a golf club, the wrists cannot break individually. If they did the bat or club must bend. The wrists are cocked and uncock by the shorting and lengthing of the arms, generally by bending or straighting the trailing elbow.
Grip pressure makes my forearms tighten and this makes the arms difficult to shorten and lengthen. When I lighten the grip pressure, shortening or lengthening one arm can break both wrists with little effort. Is this the reasoning for light grip pressure for good wrist action?
