The WWE Intercontinental Championship is a professional wrestling championship contested for in and owned by the American promotion World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The title was introduced into WWE in 1979, which was known as the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) at the time. The explanation was that Pat Patterson, holder of the WWF North American Heavyweight Championship, had defended the title in a tournament to be unified with a South American Heavyweight Championship in Rio de Janeiromarker, Brazilmarker. The WWF considered the Intercontinental Championship to be the second most important championship in the company, after the WWF Championship.

In March 2001, the WWF bought the bankrupt promotions of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), which included all of its assets and titles. Due to the new acquisitions, the WWF introduced a storyline called the "The Invasion," in which WCW and ECW alumni invaded the WWF and resulted in another WWF championship in the WCW United States Championship. At Survivor Series 2001, the two championships were unified. The United States Champion, Edge, defeated the Intercontinental Champion, Test, causing the United States Championship to become inactive while becoming the new Intercontinental Champion. Following the acquisitions, the WWF was court ordered to change their name, which was changed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). After the name change, the Undisputed Title was renamed to the WWE Intercontinental Championship. It was then unified with the European Championship in a ladder match on July 22, and the Hardcore Championship on August 26. The Intercontinental Champion, Rob Van Dam, defeated the European Champion, Jeff Hardy, and the Hardcore Champion, Tommy Dreamer. As a result, Rob Van Dam was named the last European and Hardcore Champion. At No Mercy , it was unified with the World Heavyweight Championship. The World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H, defeated the Intercontinental Champion, Kane, causing the Intercontinental Championship to become inactive.

In May 2003, the title was reactivated by Raw co-General Manager, Steve Austin, and was recommissioned to be a secondary championship to the Raw brand. Shortly after, the WCW United States Championship was reactivated as the WWE United States Championship by the SmackDown brand, making the title its equal counterpart. On April 13, 2009, when reigning champion Rey Mysterio was drafted from Raw to SmackDown during the 2009 WWE Draft, the title became property of the SmackDown brand.

WWE Intercontinental Championship reigns are determined by professional wrestling matches, in which competitors are involved in scripted rivalries. These narratives create feud between the various competitors, which cast them as villains and heroes. Some reigns were held by champions using a ring name, while others used their real name. The first champion was Pat Patterson, who won the championship in 1979, while as of the current champion is John Morrison, who is in his third reign. Overall, there have been 63 different champions, with Chris Jericho having the most reigns at nine.
