*The 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s categories
*Movie and song title/artists that are not oldies (there was a puzzle in September 2001 that was about Shrek, so they need to do their homework and look up current/recurrent cultural trends)
*Fewer $500/$600 spaces, and the $750, $1500, or $2000 spaces. Comparing the Wheel values to the 1990s, it feels quite cheap adjusted for inflation, especially for Rounds 3+
*The return of Free Spin, the Surprise wedge, or bonus puzzles
*Prize puzzles with more destinations outside of central America (including Mexico and the Caribbean)
*No tossup before the contestant interviews. It's only for $1000 and doesn't affect who starts the game.
*A second, more expensive car as one of the Bonus prizes. Yes, it would be rarer than the cheaper car in the $25,000-$40,000 range, but it could allow some really nice cars/SUVs that were common in the late '80s and '90s back on the show again. A Ford F-150 is now too expensive for the show's budget it seems, and subcompact SUVs are starting to become the norm in Bonus Land

I would love to see the $750 return.   Heck a $1500 space in round 3 and a $2000 space in round 4 would also help too!

Im really excited to see the new board, my only concern is whether theyll maintain the board shape (the extra letters that extend 1 spot further on rows 2 and 3). A full-on rectangle seems like itd be pretty bland.

A full-on rectangle is exactly what we had for 99.9% of the Chuck Woolery era (the four-line board debuted in his final week of shows), so it wouldn't be entirely unprecedented.

therealcu2010:
The puzzleboard, save for the seamless monitor, is identical to what it was.
