Keep them coming. Titles are perhaps the most important things you can see in all of wrestling. There is something so simple and logical about the idea of someone being the best wrestler in their field and a big shiny belt is exactly the way to go about proving it. Some belts are so famous that they have become iconic, but you do have to change things every now and then. We might be seeing that again in WWE.
Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, WWE unveiled a new design for the United States Title. The new look features the title’s name on the top, a golden eagle spreading its wings in the middle and red and white stripes at the bottom. Individual tastes on the title may vary, but it might not even be the only new design that WWE is releasing over the next little while.
According to BeltFanDan, who announced the new United States Title design in December 2019, via Twitter, WWE has new designed for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles as well as a new NXT Title design. The SmackDown Tag Team Titles have been ready since WrestleMania 35 but have not been used for some reason. The NXT Title design would be virtually the same, but in a larger version. There is no word on when the new titles will be brought in.
They've had new SD tags since WM35 they haven't used.
NXT belt is being replaced with a larger version of the same design.

The titles look good. Check out the new United States and the two current titles that are being changed:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that has to be done every now and then, which may or may not be popular for some fans. At some point though, you need to change some titles, which is not the worst thing in the world. There are some titles which have never looked great, including almost any title that is silver. Why would you want a title that traditionally represents second place? These could be a good thing, and new titles are always exciting, at least until you see them.
