Default rear axle stuck

I attacked (among other things) tonight my rear brakes. I have new shoes that need installed. I remove the axle nut and attempted to drift the axle out: it wont budge. I put the nut back on loose and took some wacks with my 6 lb. maul and the axlle came out about 1/8 of an inch but that's it. IT feels like I am running into a steel wall. I assume it is rusted to a sleeve of some sort within the wheel.

Any tips on getting a stuck axle out? I have sprayed the assembly the best I could with wd40 (what I have sitting around( an am going to let it sit for a overnight. I'll pound on it again in the am and see what happens.

In the meantime: any tips for removing a stuck rear axle??
