Glenn Ruth (born June 13, 1969) is a former American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Thrasher.



Ruth trained under Larry Sharpe and debuted in 1990 as The Spider. He later became Sharpe's assistant and trained wrestlers such as the Big Show and others at Sharpe's "Monster Factory". Among the wrestlers trained by Sharpe and Ruth was Charles Warrington, Ruth's future tag team partner. Ruth made a number of appearances for the World Wrestling Federation in the early 90s including a loosing effort against Marty Janetty on the 2nd ever episode of Raw, competing under his given name as an enhancement talent.

Ruth is best known for his appearances with the WWF in the late 90s, where he formed a successful tag team, The Headbangers, with Charles Warrington (Mosh). The Headbangers, a pair of metal fans, were known for their outrageous costumes, which usually featured long plaid skirts. They captured the vacant WWF World Tag Team Championships on September 7, 1997 by defeating three other teams in a four team tag match at Ground Zero. They lost the titles to The Godwinns on October 5.

The Headbangers split in 1999 when Ruth suffered a leg injury and Warrington began pursuing a singles career, but reformed in late 1999 on the October 10 edition of Sunday Night Heat when Ruth came to Warrington's aid during a domestic violence angle, which saw him vilified by other wrestlers and officials alike for a number of weeks. Ruth had presented video footage of Warrington's (kayfabe) girlfriend Marianna Komlos putting on makeup to make it seem as if Warrington had been abusing her, The police officers arresting Warrington then uncuffed him and arrested Komlos for her lies.

In 2000, Ruth took part in the match for the Hardcore Championship at WrestleMania 2000. He held the title for 45 seconds, pinning Joey Abs and then being pinned by Pete Gas. After the Headbangers split for the second time and Warrington went on to team with D'Lo Brown, Ruth continued to wrestle in singles compettion mainly on WWE Jakked and was released from the WWF later that year. After his release from the WWF, Ruth continued to wrestle until 2002 in independent promotions before retiring from professional wrestling.
