The WWE European Championship was a professional wrestling championship competed for in World Wrestling Entertainment. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, multiple superstars held the European and Intercontinental Championships within short spans of each other, and several held both titles simultaneously—dubbed as "Eurocontinental champions".

Established in 1997 as the "WWF European Championship", the title incurred a brief hiatus in 1999 due to then-champion Shane McMahon's desire to retire an "undefeated champion", before finally being unified with the WWE Intercontinental Championship in 2002. A coveted singles title, it was held by top WWE superstars such as Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero prior to its retirement.

Despite its name, only two holders were actually from Europe: the British Bulldog and William Regal.
