REAX: In Charlotte, Tom Sorensen writes, "Most of us think of Humpy as a brilliant salesman whose flashy promotions offer lots of explosions but never blow up. But he's so much more." Wheeler "understands what every businessman should. Customers are not obligated to buy. Promoters are obligated to give them a reason to. So Humpy did" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 5/21). The CHARLOTTE OBSERVER's Poole, in a blog entry, wrote Wheeler has "done enough for his sport that nobody should begrudge him the opportunity to do some things he wants to do" (CHARLOTTE.com, 5/20).
