If the rotor wiggles then it’s likely not stuck on the hub so it’s more than likely stuck on the parking brake but only if you use it a lot not very common to hang up on that. Of the rotor is not free of the hub give it a wack with a hammer from the back where the caliper bolts on and free it from the hub

Is the truck pretty new? First time rear brakes were done? There are normally a retainer or 2 on one or more of the studs that hold them on. With older trucks you wouldn't notice them due to being removed already.

Take a wire brush or dremel with a small wire wheel to where the center register meets the rotor. Get rid of as much of the guaranteed corrosion is there, then spray with your favorite penetrant (WD40, Kroil ,etc). Give it a little while to soak in, then start wiggling it. If it doesn't wiggle right away, give it a whack with a small sledge, then rotate it so you can hit it again on the opposite end. Repeat til she pops loose. It WILL pop loose.

When I did mine I had to whack it with a hammer quite a few times. If your worried about damage then try a heavy duty rubber mallet. Some penetrating oil might help a little bit too.
