Everyone can still remember the Governor. That wacky tyrant with an eyepatch who made the prison arc even more hellish after he killed good ol' Hershel in The Walking Dead.
But if you think he's bad, it seems that Negan will usher in a whole new meaning for "worst." In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan revealed that, if the Governor was pitted against Negan, there's no question on who would win.
With a shake of the head and that coy but knowing grin he says:
"It's not even close. I mean, I love David Morissey, 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."
This isn't surprising considering Daryl Dixon actor Norman Reedus previously said that the entire world will change in season 7 in The Walking Dead. More than the reveal on whose head (or heads?) got bashed in by Lucille, we might be looking at a whole new dynamic for Rick and the gang at the mercy of Negan's Law.
The Walking Dead is coming back for its seventh season on Oct. 23.
