This is what my mechanic did also. A bigger hammer, striking the hub portion of the rotor directly. He would strike, spin the wheel hub so he'd hit a different part of the rotor, and hitting again until it broke free. The rust dust could be seen falling off with every strike.I assume by now you've done the work. I thought I'd put in my experience with removing rotors: hammer and hammer/wood block was unsuccessful for me (also loud as heck). 3 lb dead blow hammer, 2 whacks on the rotor face at the front (just below where the caliper sits) and it was off.
