— Joshua Modaberi sent this one in: Hi, My name is Joshua Modaberi and I’m a sports journalist and cover wrestling for a number of publications. Here is an article I did with Devon for Wrestling101 and I was just wondering if you wanted to use parts of the interview on your website with a link to www.wrestling101.com. Devon talks about his time wrestling in ECW, WWE and TNA as well as being a member of Aces & 8’s and comparing his three bosses. http://www.wrestling101.com/home/2013/03/devon-interview/ Look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind regards. Josh
