The European Heavyweight Championship is a top title competed for throughout the European Union's professional wrestling circuit.

The title would be defended in many promotions in Europe, and other versions of this one title also appeared in certain promotions. On August 25, 2001 the European Wrestling Union produced a European Heavyweight Championship tournament in Bochum, Germany, bringing in wrestlers some of whom claimed to already be the Champion. This tournament saw these titles merge into one with Britain's Robbie Brookside confirming his claim as champion by defeating 5 Star Cory K in a championship decider.

The title history below shows all the holders of the title in chronological order. However, there are instances where another wrestler has taken the role of champion, or claimed the title but no official title change was recorded (these are noted with "unknown title history", or other details.)
