At the beginning of the Assassination arc, both Goku and Vegeta were only capable of outputting 1/10th of the Super Saiyan Blue potential. Furthermore, after the assassination of Goku, Vegeta battled on with the new and improved Hit, getting demolished in the process. Now that he's dead, The other-world has allowed Goku to output 100% of his Super Saiyan Blue potential, as he no longer has a body presence.
The limitless other-world training has allowed Goku to play with his maximum potential, unlocking knowledge of progressing the transformation, and getting used to it.
Goku returns to Earth via Supreme Kai, taking away his life. Goku arrives back and showcases his new Super Saiyan Blue abilities in a battle versus a fully recovered Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, crushing him.
Whis watches this battle and begins to realize that Goku has unlocked a half of his true power. Goku tells Vegeta about the process of unlocking Super Saiyan Blue further, he then decides to kill Vegeta, allowing the Saiyan Prince to unlock the ability in other-world.
