And now that you've stretched the metal by bending it in the first place then tried to remove the bend weakening the point of the bend.

And then add various thin spots/dents around the rotor after smashing against bumpy concrete.

Voila a now straight (ish) knackered disc.

You forgot to mention it works well for squeaky brakes as well.
