Negan was often recognized by his iconic weapon, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire named Lucille, but this season, Rick is apparently sporting a trademark weapon from his own. A new teaser surfaced on the series' official Instagram account, showing off his brand-new mace, spikes and all. Check it out below.
