King of the Ring (1996) was the fourth annual King of the Ring pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), now known as WWE. The event took place on June 23, 1996, from the MECCA Arena, now known as UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Austin's victory speech after winning the 1996 King of the Ring Tournament gave rise to the "Austin 3:16" tag line, and the event has been cited by WWE as the starting point of the Attitude Era along with WWE Wrestlemania 13, Badd Blood: In Your House, WWE Survivor Series 1997 and WWE Wrestlemania 14.
