    They’re the two biggest baddies in The Walking Dead universe: Negan and the Governor. David Morrissey brought the Governor to the screen back in season 3 and wreaked all sorts of havoc before he was ultimately dispatched in season 4. And now Negan has burst onto the scene with his barbed wire-covered baseball bat named Lucille.

    The two never overlapped in either the comic book or the TV show, but what if they had? Who would come out on top in a Negan vs. the Governor battle? We asked Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and the current EW cover star says the contest would be no contest whatsoever.

    “It’s not even close,” says Morgan, flashing that devilish grin. “I mean, I love David Morrissey, but he wouldn’t stand a chance. Wouldn’t stand a chance. I’d put Negan up against anybody. He’s super smart and there’s no filter, no fear. The Governor was a little bit wack. Negan’s got it together. It wouldn’t even be close. And I’m sorry, ‘cause I really love David. He’s awesome. I worked with him for a year and there’s just not a better guy. But Negan versus the Governor wouldn’t be close.”

    But yeah, I can see Negan winning just with his army alone.

    Negan would wipe the floor with the Governor. I agree it's no contest.

    Even as Gov's fanboy, I'd agree that Negan would own The Governor.

    Well the Gov did have :mcl:so let's not be hasty....:rickgrin:

    In all seriousness, Negan has 100 thugs, outposts with armories and his people think he's a god. The governor had :martinez::shump::milton: and a few mercenary type guys and a town filled with widows and orphans. Even if grandma could suddenly be taught to wield an AK-47, my bets are on Negan and the Saviors. He would think Woodbury was adorable as he took 12 minutes to conquer it.

    The question is: who would Negan "Lucille" if he met up with the Governor's crew? :omg:

    I can see The Gov rallying everyone to go against Negan and die in the process. I don't think he would submit because he didn't really care about his people. Or at least he cared more about winning than anything else.

    Governor would be all loud-spoken, going on about not surrendering, fighting back, and Ogg Savior would just punch him in the throat and throw him on the ground. Negan would probably Lucille the Governor's ass because he's already broken. Negan can't manipulate or control someone who has nothing left to lose. He'd have better luck putting someone like Milton or Martinez in charge and exploiting their weaknesses.

    I agree with JDM.....There is no comparison. The Governor was not scary and got his a*s handed to him lol he always reminded me of a nerd who got a little bit of power post ZA like when he told Rick that pre-ZA story of his boss yelling at him lol ...... Negan on the other hand is bad a*s, confident, strong and epic in every way a real villain should be. Negan would've killed the Governor in S3a. :laugh:

    Let me think. We need to look art the facts. The Governor killed several of Rick's people and drove the rest out of the prison. He lost most of his own people in the process as well as his own life. That was a battle against a couple dozen people at most. Three communities had to come together to take down Negan. The winner is pretty obvious. If these two were to clash, Negan would crush the Governor. It wouldn't even be a fight or a challenge. It would be more like a slaughter.:negan:

    The Governor wouldn't stand a chance against Negan.

    I dunno about the rest of you, but this: :mcl::martinez::milton::shump:sounds like a damn good army. They just need to utilize Ms. Mcleod on the field.

    McLeod would rip them a new asshole. She has an untapped bloodlust that can prove frightening.
