Yup, he can have another cupcake final due to his mates' efforts. It will be typical and he will then be lauded as a martyr .

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
