WWE Superstars MVP and Matt Striker told MSNBC how they promote reading to kids. Inside, MVP reveals his tattoo from The Count of Monte Cristo, and Striker admits his favorite book is "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret."

The best part is when MSNBC's Contessa Brewer calls out Striker, a former teacher by day, for calling out sick from teaching to wrestle. Striker counters "calling in sick is deemed wrong by some, it's semantics really" because he encouraged kids to follow their dreams. Your Judy Blume affinity earns you a hall pass, Professor Striker.
