Originally exclusive to ECCW, the European Championship was announced by ECCW General Manager Michael Cole on Episode 181 - ECCW and the first European Champion was decided by an eight-man single elimination tournament which began that episode. Said tournament concluded on Episode 189 - ECCW when Alex Riley defeated Justin Gabriel in the finals to become the inaugural Champion. The final Champion was Daniel Bryan, who won a Unification Match for the TV & European Championship against Matt Hardy on Episode 287 - Smackdown.
