    What are Ulitmate Control Moves?
    
    According to the game manual: "Ultimate Control Moves give players the freedom
    to decide when and where they want to lay the SmackDown on their opponent. To
    perform an Ultimate Control Move, you must first be in a grappled state. Once
    in a grappled state, press the R3 button to initiate the Ultimate Control Move.
    Follow the instructions along the Heads Up Display (HUD) to select a grapple
    move. After a grapple has been selected, press the right analog stick in the
    direction as indicated along the HUD. Each Superstar has four Ultimate Control
    Moves for each one of their four strong grapple holds."
