Default Rotor replacement Camry LE How to remove

I tried to remove my rotors on my 2011 Camry LE. When I looked at YouTube the videos show nothing retaining the rotors when the tire and brake pad cradle are removed. While my rotor has a lot of rust, after I sprayed liquid wrench and banged on the rotor there is no movement. There is a nut on the center of the wheel, does it have to be removed?

The center nut holds the axle to the hub bearing and hub.

There is nothing retaining the disk.

The link below provides a number of possible ways using common tools.

The best approach is an acetylene torch and heating the rotor around the larger center hole.

Next is a puller.

Thank you. I found under the how to section that the rotor has two 8 mm holes that you put a bolt in and tighten. That worked with a pretty good pop. Lots of rust.
