The classic WWF record albums "The Wrestling Album" and "Piledriver" are being re-released as a limited edition LP for the next Record Store Day festivities on 4/18/15.
 
Promotional material describes the exclusive release:
"This RSD 2015 release brings The Wrestling Album and Piledriver: The Wrestling Album 2 together as a 2LP collection, in a handsome spiral-bound jacket, celebrating a golden era in American pro wrestling mania.  Originally released by the World Wrestling Federation in 1985, The Wrestling Album features tracks produced by Rick Derringer, David Wolff, Jim Steinman (Bat Out of Hell) and "Mona Flambe" (Cyndi Lauper, who contributes backing vocals on "Real American"); the album is comprised of theme music for wrestlers on the WWF (now the WWE) roster at the time.  The 1987 follow-up, Piledriver: The Wrestling Album 2 showcases vocal performances from the wrestlers themselves, including "Stand Back" by Vince McMahon and "If You Only Knew" by The WWF Superstars."
The set features all of the original tracks. No additional material or exclusive songs.
Record Store Day is a special event featuring exclusive material released on vinyl format to push customers into traditional (and most likely, independent) record stores.
The WWE LP set is being released by Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment.

I remember a live performance by Junkyard Dog and Vicki Sue Robinson on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, doing "Grab them Cakes". Did any other songs get as much mainstream exposure?

MTV gave "Land Of A Thousand Dances" decent airplay given its status as a novelty song. The quickly discarded "Hulk Hogan's Theme" was the title song for "Hulk Hogan's Rock & Wrestling" on CBS. Nothing else got much exposure. I don't think any of the "Piledriver" album got played in mainstream circles at all.

Beavis & Butt-head even mocked the video years later.
