My new rotors are giving me a turn!

Bought new front rotors and thought I'd just put them on last night. NOT! Most of the assembly came apart OK but the inner bearing is well seated and won't come out. I did not want to force it and cause damage and am sure there is a technique to use. Do I need a special tool? How do I put the bearing and inner seal into the new rotor ?

The easiest way I have found for removing the inner wheel bearing is this:

Remove the outer bearing. Install the rotor back on the spindle, install the spindle nut. Now slide the rotor forward until the bearing catches the spindle nut. Now pull hard. No muss no fuss...removes the bearing and seal in one operation. Been doing it that way for almost 30 years.
