Granted it didn't start as a paradox but I think when Barry inadvertently killed RF before he could kill Iris it became a Paradox.
Of course that was Pre-Crisis and all the subsequent reboots.
As to Wells overwriting history, here is the question: is he overwriting history to ensure it happens, or is he fulfilling what he already knows is history?
As I recall in comic history, Professor Zoom in the future developed an obsession with Barry and his history and replicated the accident and gained super speed powers. After that was when he began to time travel to the past to menace Barry and later Wally.
So what we likely have is something similar in the series where in the future he gets obsessed about the Flash to the point where he makes himself into Reverse Flash, and then after time traveling he observes the past and records it and realizes that he needs to set himself up not only as Flash's nemesis but that also he creates the Flash and the other meta humans as well.
That could be what the writers are going for.
