The headline may seem like something out of a WWE storyline.

However, that is not the case, as the "Billion Dollar Princess" took to the runway Monday night for Fashion Week in New York City. 

According to WWE.com:

WWE Executive Vice President of Creative Stephanie McMahon made her runway debut at Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week!

Strut was co-created by Executive Producer Stephanie Winston Wolkoff of SWW Creative and Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein of The MOMS — a multi-platform lifestyle brand and event company that McMahon has collaborated with via social media. Throughout the evening of the event, McMahon's participation was covered on twitter.com/WWEmoms.

TheMoms.com announced Monday, Sept. 10, that McMahon would be taking part in the show.

To me, this was a solid move by Stephanie and the WWE. It allowed the WWE to be involved in something they normally wouldn't be.

Let's face it: With the exception of the Diva's division, models and wrestling don't mix.

Like it or not, the WWE has to keep a good public image, as they are a business first, wrestling company second.

Being involved in events like this further solidifies their chances of becoming more mainstream. It also shows a human side to the company.

I hope that they continue to have initiatives like this and branch out even further. Don't get me wrong: I am not a PG Era fan, but I get why they need to be more family friendly in order to survive.

In the end, this will not affect the content of the show; it's just another way to promote the product.
