I have no idea if this "list" will be long or short.

Don't be thrown off by the timing of my post (I don't consider Brock Lesnar someone he helped to "get over")

Probably #1 on the list by far. It helps when You are HHH's Lackey. Also, Sheamus is another one He helped get over.

He helped Taz get over that week when Taz won the ECW title and HHH beat up Taz and Tommy Dreamer at the same time.

But seriously, HHH was on top for a long time. He probably helped anyone he had an extended run with. Orton, Batista, Benoit, Angle, Cena. Being around HHH when he was on top didn't hurt any of those guys.

The Rock and Triple H helped one another during the start of the Attitude Era with their feud over the I-C title.

I would say Benoit, eventually. Triple H lost to him multiple times by tapout when seemingly nobody else could get a victory over him in a match that mattered.

I honestly can't think of anyone else.  Most were reciprocal.  HHH was around at a time of immense talent when multiple guys were getting main event chances, and what he did with guys like Rock, Foley, NAO, etc. were mutually beneficial. 

And it was Foley who got Orton over more than HHH and Evolution.  Remember that Orton was supposed to get the big push instead of Batista but wasn't getting over.  Then he had still to this day the best match of his career against Foley and ate the thumbtacks and everything, and finally he got over.

Mutually getting over is still helping someone to get over if one gets helped on the other end.

Could Rock had went up on the card feuding with X-Pac at that time?

Could Batista or the Outlaws have been elevated had they been paired with someone else?

Like it or not, Triple H had a hand in helping to get those guys over even if they helped to get him over, too.

Agree fully, martini.  HHH is nowhere near as bad as the rep he got.  Getting himself over to the extent he did helped down the road when he put others over. 

He really got Benoit over, and from that point on, Benoit was never viewed as anything less than main event.  Benoit headlined many smaller house shows as the draw and sold them out - maybe it was the WWE machine, but a show with Benoit and Batista and nothing else sold out Westchester County Center so fast they put in a matinee the same day using the same card and sold that show out too.  I know, I was there.  He got Batista over to the extent that they considered Batista the only guy that could go over to Smackdown at the time to carry the brand.  Of course, he tore his lat and couldn't do it, but not HHHs fault.  I also really think he's one of the guys that got Edge over as a Main Eventer too.  Edge had won the title vs Cena a couple times at a time when the crowd REALLY hated Cena, but Rated RKO vs DX really cemented Edge as the Rated R Superstar and somebody that you didn't mess with.  Laugh if you want, but he got a 56 year old Ric Flair over (at the expense of burying the Intercontinental Title) when Raw moved back to USA.  After the end of Evolution, Flair didn't do much other than win the Tag Titles with Piper, then beat Carlito to win the IC title, and HHH shit all over that when he came back, beating the hell out of Flair.  Flair didn't win the match with HHH, but made people believe he could, making the 18 month run to his big retirement match work with the people.  He made Shawn Michaels relevant to everybody in one night when he came back after five years and wrestled his ass off.  HHH bumped for everything Shawn did, and even though Shawn was amazing, I don't think it would have worked as well against anybody else.  And didn't HHH put over Kurt Angle a few times too?

Only problem I have with the Kurt Angle vs Triple H story line is Stephanie should have ended up with Kurt Angle. Stephanie ending up with Trips really didn't hurt Angle but it would have made more sense to have Stephanie with Angle.

What was up with that anyway?

Started as this awesome storyline and then it went on FOREVER and the interest in it died out
