Kip does his vow saying he will cherish her forever and loves everything about her. Ford does her vow saying she loves him so much and said he had the biggest… but then Kip stopped her. Chuck gives Miro the ring to give to Kip. Kip says I do when James asked if he will take her to be his bride. James asked Ford if she will take Kip to be her husband and says I do. James asked if anyone should object and Miro cuts him off saying let’s move on. James pronounces them husband and wife and they may kiss. They kiss. Miro has Chuck serve them champagne. He tells Kip that he knows how it feels to be married. He said he might’ve not brought a present for him but his knowledge is the present. He points out the present that is in the ring. Chuck said it’s from him. Miro destroys the present and nothing was in it. He tells Chuck to clean it.

Omega and The Good Brothers continued to attack Fenix and Moxley in the ring until Lance Archer came to his aid. Archer went after The Good Brothers outside the ring. Moxley got up and was going to turn his attention to Omega until a masked man attacked him from behind. He took the mask off and it was revealed to be Kenta. Kenta nailed Moxley with the Go To Sleep. The show ended with Omega standing tall over Moxley.

Overall Review: For a regular Dynamite show it was really good but for a special show like Beach Break it wasn’t bad but it could’ve been better. I thought it had a bit of variety for everyone in a way significant way like for the casuals they show Shaq accepting Cody’s challenge. They’ll face on March 3rd in a mix tag with Red Velvet and Jade Cargil which I thought it should’ve been saved for Revolution but it’ll definitely help them in the ratings to have Shaq compete in Dynamite. They also had some for the hardcore wrestling fans who watch New Japan with having Kenta appear after the main event match attacking Moxley. The main event match was a typical good 6 man tag match I wouldn’t say it was the most amazing match but it was good. I love that MJF and Jericho are going to challenge for the tag titles. I don’t understand though that the rest of the Inner Circle tag teams like Sammy Hager and Santana/Ortiz were in the match if two weeks before this, Jericho and MJF beat them to be the official team of the Inner Circle. This just makes that match pointless if Sammy Hager and Santana/Ortiz were in the match anyway. I thought Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker was match of the night for me. I was impressed with Britt’s in ring work with her and she’s definitely improved since Dynamite began. I don’t mind Britt winning the way she did because it’ll give them an excuse to keep the rivalry going possibly into Revolution. The wedding of Kip and Penelope was pretty entertaining. The best part was people singing “What is Love” and Miro singing along with them a little. I’m glad the whole best man storyline is over and they can end the rivalry with Best Friends soon. 

Grade: 6/10
