I did heat it up, I think I just need a heavier hammer.

pbblaster will help, also....
when you put the new ones on use some anti-seize around the inside edge and the axle..

I agree with pb blaster and let it soak in for awhile...then heat and bang...also making sure the pbrake is disengaged.

Try spraying it with PB Blaster. That's a good penetrant to loosen the rust holding the rotor, if your schedule permits, soak it really heavy and leave it overnight.Soak it with brake fluid too if u don't have PB Blaster another good penetrant but just be careful with your paint job. It will eat ur paint. Since you're not reinstalling the same rotor get a heavier ball pein hammer and hit it from the outside not from the dust shield side.Seasoned and soaked over night that should break it loose effortlessly. (Sounds like a next day BBQ recipe!!!)

I feel like I just posted about this...search and you'll find plenty of repair options.
