You may have somehow jammed the rotor on the backside of a pad or you may have jammed the speedometer drive. You may have done both or you may have done something else like not having the pinch bolts fully loose before you whacked it.
If everything is lined up it should take no whacks to install the axle; it should slip in.
At any rate, I'd start with the caliper and unbolt it from the fork and see if that frees things up. Loosen all four pinch bolts, too.
Give the axle a bit of a tap with a soft drift and see if it comes out.
On reassembly, make sure that the speedometer drive is in properly. Inspect it before reassembly to make sure the plate is not bent, then make sure that the tabs on the plate are properly aligned with the slots in the hub. Inspect those, too, to make sure they aren't boogered up. Make sure the housing is lined up so that the tab on the housing fits in the slot on the forks.
Follow the manual's procedure for reassembly of the wheel and axle and make sure everything is properly torqued back up.
