I believe what Wally did there is steal Superman's kinetic energy to slow him down. I know he's done this to bullets in order to make them fall harmlessly to the ground.

Lord Majestros:
Stealing speed from people and things is an ability the Speed Force gives Wally. He can also lend speed to people things as well. However, the things and people he lends or steals speed from DO NOT have to be connected to the Speed Force.
