@zgtfreak: 1. he got caught of guard meaning he had no time to do anything but being suprised. 2. As soon as the explosion happened his body would be knocked away. 3. Without catching air he suffocated the second he would be in space. 4. Whis had the ability to reverse time so why would he waist energy saving Vegeta when he can teach Goku and Vegeta a lesson about bein relaxed and still combat ready like he did in their training session.
