Why wouldn't Devon be the VP? This just makes no sense to me.

D'Lo is TNA management. I think it makes a lot of sense for him to hold a high position in Aces and Eights as well.

From what I can tell of the A&8 leadership structure, the reason that D-Lo is VP, while Devon is Sergeant-at-Arms (as I heard commentary refer to him at Lockdown), has to do with the difference between strategic vs. tactical planning. One isn't higher than the other — they have different realms of expertise and authority. D-Lo deals with issues such as who to target, when to do things like the big reveal of Bully Ray as President, and all that. Devon deals with the actual mechanics of those things, such as where to ambush someone, who is involved, and what the plan of attack will be.

If you look at Sons of Anarchy, where they're taking the A&8's idea from, the VP is the next in line usually (even though the new President would go to a vote, in a smooth transition leadership would go to the VP next), the Sergeant-At-Arms is usually the right hand. When the President needs a job taken care of, you send the Sergeant-At-Arms to take handle it. As such, you'd want the guy you trust the most to be in that position at your side, as President. For Bully, that man would be Devon

Blood is thicker than gold, and damn sure thicker than titles.
