I don't know if Wally exists in the current New 52, so perhaps this question should apply to the previous continuity.

After Barry came back from the dead, right up until 2011...Who was faster? Barry or Wally?

That's a tricky question to answer as it hinges on a retcon coming out of Flash:Rebirth, that mini-series reaffirmed Barry as DCs premier Flash and revealed that the Speed-Force was in fact something he himself generated!If the force is a product of his own kinetic motion then logically he should be faster than Wally was - and by relation immune to Wally's speed siphoning. But ironically since Barry was new to the Speed-forces existence he did not yet have Wally's knowledge and expertise with its uses. So in terms of speed Barry should be faster than Wally thanks to that reveal.... before that though I would edge Wally.
