Play against an opponent with a submission finisher (like Daniel Bryan) and let them beat on you until they hit the finisher. Now hold in the direction that the ropes are closest to you while also rapidly pressing , , , so you don’t tap out. If you are on top of the ropes when the hold is put on you, the achievement should pop immediately. Some of the submissions don't seem to allow you to crawl or get the achievement when you are on top of the ropes. Del Rio's arm bar is one that I know of for sure that doesn't work. So just play it safe and go against Daniel Bryan.
