I must be really dumb but I can't seem to hold someone in a submissions for long enough and if I'm put in any submission hold no matter what I press I can't seem to get out of them there is obviously something I'm doing as I had the same trouble on wwe12 please help!

Just mash the colored buttons like crazy. What I do is flip the controller to where I can press them with both my index and middle fingers. If the bar goes down, it means your opponent isn't damaged enough.
