That's Yucca. No species of Yucca has spines.
Assuming you are talking about one you are growing as a house plant, it is
probably Yucca elephantipes. It does not make a particularly good house
plant as compared to Dracaena. Yuccas need as much light as you can give
them, such as a south facing window or a greenhouse, to do well.
Let the plant dry out. Over watering it should not have caused such serious
damage within one week. Something else is wrong with the plant. Your plant
may have rot.
