Play an entire card in WWE Universe mode from beginning to end with no simulation to get the "Control Freak" achievement. To easily do this, simply play the mic mini-game, then leave the ring, grab a chair, and get DQed in all the matches.
The submission process has two phases. You first need to make sure your opponent does not have much stamina available. The lower you can take it, the better chance you have for a successful submission. One of the quickest ways to deplete your opponent's stamina is by using Rest Hold. To perform Rest Hold, you can either grab your opponent from behind or grab him or her once and then press [Grab] again. Once you have successfully executed that, try to weaken one of his or her limbs and work towards the submission. Going with multiple submissions can drastically damage the limb and make the submission easier. Also, keep the submission stats of your wrestlers in mind. There are wrestlers that have submissions as their finishing moves as well, which makes forcing a submission much easier.
You do not actually need to play MyCareer or Universe mode to get a good amount of VC. If you want to get a good amount of VC from Exhibition matches, perform different types of moves during matches, like submissions, dives, using tools, etc. Let your opponent pin you down and then get back up. Perform counter-attacks, signature moves, and finishers/OMG finishers. Basically, make the fight as exciting as possible to get as much VC as possible from the match. Just be careful not to repeat things more than required. Combine a lot of different things together, perform crazy moves, and you should get a five-star rating for the match and a good amount of VC.
