You have to keep up with the times. There are a lot of goals and accomplishments to achieve in wrestling. For a lot of wrestlers, that may be headlining WrestleMania or being in the last match of the night at Wrestle Kingdom. There are all kinds of things to do out there in the wrestling world, but more often than not, a title is involved. They make the wrestling business go round and now one of them might be changing a bit.
WWE has a lot of titles to go around and several of them are changing from one design to another. Sometimes this may be as simple as changing the color of the belt or switching out a plate on the side, but there are times where the changes are a lot more drastic. Earlier this year the Intercontinental Title was changed to a completely new design and now another may be following suit.
According to Belt Fan Dan on Twitter, a newly designed United States Title has been delivered to WWE, though they have yet to unveil it. There is no word on when the new title will appear on television. At the same time, Belt Fan Dan also mentioned that newly designed SmackDown Tag Team Titles were delivered to WWE around WrestleMania 35 but have yet to appear either. There is also no word on why they have not been debuted.
New U.S. belt was delivered…. No idea what it looks like.

Seeing a new title is a cool moment. Check out some of the better reveals:
Opinion: A new title could be cool as we have had this one for about sixteen years now. I’m not sure if the title needs a new design, but at some point you do need to switch things up a bit. There is nothing wrong with going in a new direction as the title’s history is certainly enough to make it mean something. It isn’t all that surprising given the Intercontinental Title getting a fresh version, but I’m curious to see how this one looks.
