You have to keep things fresh. Titles are about as important of a plot device as you are going to find in wrestling. In theory, every wrestler wants to be a champion and part of that is due to how cool they look. Some titles are better looking than others but a few of them are absolutely iconic. We might be seeing some more of those added to the list in the near future.
Titles are kind of a simple concept when you think about it: they’re big, shiny, and usually gold or silver. Who wouldn’t want something that big and likely that valuable signifying that you are the best at what you do? WWE certainly has had several titles over the years and some of them are as well known as any in wrestling. Now though, they might be needing some updates.
According to Belt Fan Dan (who has a history of insider knowledge on titles), two WWE titles will be changed in the near future. One will be an entirely new design while a second is a change to an existing title. It is not clear which titles are being redesigned, though the replica versions have already been put into production, meaning they will be available as soon as the titles are unveiled. The Intercontinental Title is unlikely to be changed as the new design was unveiled last November.
Looks like a few new versions of WWE belts are coming. One is a new design, one is a slight modification to an existing design. I was told the replicas are already in production so as soon as they debut, they will be available for order on WWEShop.

There have been some great title reveals. Check out the better ones:
Opinion: The one that jumps out at me the most is the United States Title, which has been the same for a very long time now. With the Intercontinental changing not so very long ago, it would make sense to have something new put out for its Monday Night Raw counterpart. Hopefully whatever the new design is isn’t too out there though, as some modern designs don’t have the same appeal as the older versions.
