They wouldn't know a German suplex from an armbar.
If they are trying to create intrigue with these minor occurrences of Husky Harris appearing on the screen once an episode, it's really not doing the trick and no one really cares or is really buying it anyway. It would be more plausible if they were seeking someone like Heath Slater who is total backwoods even though no one cares about him anyway. I just think it's a complete stretch to want people to believe DB is a potential candidate for the Wyatt's.
I don't think it's adding anything to the story, it's just sorta weird.
You hit the nail right on the head. If the WWE had any sense he wouldn't even be in this angle, he'd be the champion.
