Exclamation ROTOR STUCK!! suggestions?

Alright, so I got 3 of the four rotors replaced and have had one hell of a time removing the RR rotor because it has severely corroded around the hub. I've used a wire brush to clean it, sprayed WD-40 like crazy. Banged all around it to see if it would break some of the rust off and nothing. There's a plate that covers the back side of the rotor except for the area where the caliper sits.. so I can't get even distribution of pressure. Any suggestions? TIA

Bigger hammer and PB Blaster, just keep hitting it, it will break loose eventually.

Use a rubber mallet and don't be afraid to hit it hard. LOL!

PB Blaster around the hub and then hit it all around the area next to where the studs stick out (face of the drum). It will eventually pop. Just got to keep hitting it all around.

Need more than a rubber mallet. Dead blow hammer will be a better choice.
