I really don't see a problem with this. Getting grabbed by the leg and swung into a wall, or a teammate, etc, is a common hazard for flying heroes (and villains). It has happened to Iron Man, Ms Marvel, Namor, etc, on many occassions. It is not any kind of negative indication about Wondy--it is just something that tends to happen in superhero fights.
It also needs to be factored in that Wondy (and the other Avengers) were holding back because they didn't want to hurt their friends (or risk screwing up the timeline) whereas the Invaders were not holding back at all--they were in wartime fighting mode.
Personally, I was pleased with Wondy's performance in the fight that he took down the Torch will no trouble at all, and actually contributed to the fight (unlike Sentry, who seemingly disappeared after punching Namor in one panel, or Black Widow who stood on the sidelines).
