Along with the heroes and villains that populate WWE's history, there have been a plethora of insane characters in the vein of Mick Foley and Roddy Piper.

Madness has long been one of Hollywood and literature's greatest tools of intrigue. The same is true of pro wrestling and WWE.

The way that Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs or Anne Wilkes from Misery have enthralled us, WWE's conveyor belt of crazy characters have been an entertaining part of the product for years.

Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt may soon join them, carrying along the tradition of lunacy.

While men like Sycho Sid and Nailz would not be welcome in most normal working environments, they are not included here as they were more enraged than insane. The same goes for Daniel Bryan, who was evaluated by an on-screen shrink, but his mental issues simply don't compare to WWE's most nutty.
