Help getting bolt out of roller blades

I'm completely baffled by my blades. I lost some of the original hardware that came with my runners, so I replaced it with nuts and bolts that fit, as I have done many times in the past. This time, the bolt in the back wheel of my skate somehow got stuck, and I can't get it out. Help? I've tried the following:
  1. Yanking on it with plyers
  2. HItting it with a hammer, which got it part way out, but not even close to all the way
  3. Spraying it with WD40

The really weird thing is I can turn it, I just can't yank it out. WTF is going on? It went in easily enough, and I've used the same width bolt for years with these runners.
