I would cut off one of the HDMI connector ends before using it as a pull-string - less chance of getting caught. Tape the connection very well (electrical tape). Double up the string, after taping, and then tape it again.
You may want to replace the cable with a pull string, and then use the pull string for the new cable(s) (and a new pull string with it). Enlist a helper. Sometimes tension on both ends helps, and sometimes some pushing helps.
You may be able to more easily pull a new category cable than a new HDMI cable. You could use an HDMI extender with a category cable, though it's probably cheaper to just cut a few new holes, patch, and paint, than use an extender.
An HDMI cable with small end connectors will be easier to pull than one with large connectors. You may have to search to find a good one. Ethereal might be one to research.
HDMI Field termination kits available (e.g. RapidRun), but probably a lot more $ than patching and painting.
