Episode 123 of Dragon Ball Super was a big deal for a number of reasons. Goku and Jiren started their rematch, and by the end of the episode, Vegeta reached a mysterious new form that fans have been guessing about since it was teased during the show's new ending.
Vegeta's new form exploded in a such a way, fans have been talking about it since:

But what impressed fans the most about this transformation, however, was the reason he transformed. Thinking back to Cabba, Vegeta reached his new power and fans were tearing up:
OMG that episode of Dragon Ball Super! I nearly teared up when Vegeta had his flashback to Cabba.
I'm gonna be so disappointed when Vegeta doesn't win the Tournament of Power.— TokuChris (@TokuChris) January 14, 2018
Vegeta using Cabba’s loss as a way to tap into his new form was awesome character development for him. Dragonball Super is Vegeta’s show. pic.twitter.com/Yoo27YjXga— Phyuck Yiu (@kenfvcknmasters) January 14, 2018
Though Vegeta's form is a great addition to the series, fans are definitely curious as to what the proper name of the form will be:
Just watched the latest episode of Dragon Ball Super. My question is what is the name of Vegeta's new form? Is is a literal Royal version of Super Saiyan Blue? Grand Super Saiyan Blue? Or is it classic Super Saiyan Blue 2— Exon Xenchi | Leader (@XenchiVisuals) January 14, 2018
With as many questions and hype Vegeta's new form is drumming up, fans are going to be waiting for the next episode with baited breath.
