Well he punched the heck out of that one. Usually you burr out most of the laid over material and then with some force they come out ( you will need new plugs tho). If they are not punched to that extreme sometimes with some force they will turn out any way. A punch is just to keep them from backing themselves out not to stop a strongman from taking them out with a wrench. Hope this helps.
