A piece from the wire is stuck on the plug? Have you tried using needle nose pliers? Can you snap some pics of it?

the tip around the end of the plug wire came off and is stuck on the spark plug, needle nose pliers are too short Click the image to open in full size.

With all honesty, throw the spark plug away. They cost a buck or 2 and you will end up buying new plug wires anyway... So it's not worth it..

They sell some long *** needle nose pliers, or maybe you can borrow some. Can you still fit the socket over the plug to take the plug out?

I dont know man, maybe put some glue on the end of the wire and stick it down in there. Maybe when it dries, you can get it off the plug. There has to be an easier way.

Or you can also try the classifieds section, people take off their OEM wires for aftermarket ones all the time. Click the image to open in full size.

Long thin flathead screwdriver and/or super long thin pair of needle nose pliers. I've done it like that plenty of times with multiple engines. Coat hanger will also work as well.
