The two characters will never meet, either in the comics or on the show. But if The Governor and Negan, two village rulers well-known for their cruelty, ever challenged each other for dominance, who would win?
EW asked Jeffrey Dean Morgan this question. What do YOU think his answer was? “It’s not even close..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.”
Well….The Governor had a lot of guns. Guns usually defeat bats in combat every time. He was also handy with a sword, and he had access to a tank. Shouldn’t those things give him an advantage?
Morgan says it’s all about the mental state, and Negan’s toolshed is undeniably sharper. “The Governor was a little bit wack. Negan’s got it together. It wouldn’t even be close.”
He then apologized to the actor, whom he bore nothing against. “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.”
