Unfortunately, one of the biggest winners is also one of the least exciting.

Many WWE stars switched homes this week, and some came out of the Shakeup better off than others. Some moves made no impact. For instance, did anyone really notice that the Riott Squad was traded for Absolution? No, instead it seems likelier that both factions will settle into their old roles, just with a new color surrounding them.

Some stars wound up losing out big. Others won just as much, with the new change of scenery set to work wonders for them. With that in mind, what can we expect for the next year? Who will be given prominent spots in the months ahead?

Winner: Natalya

Natalya might well go from blue brand afterthought to red brand stalwart. It's no secret that Natalya was one of Ronda Rousey's training partners at the Performance Center, and already, she's become enmeshed with her on Raw. She was probably specially moved to work with Ronda Rousey, which was a smart decision.

Where the story goes is anyone's guess, but her involvement with Ronda Rousey means that Natalya is set for the most prominent spotlight she's had in years. A SummerSlam match between them is very possible.
