Anyone else picturing this scenario? In the ring, during a filler moment at Summerslam between two matches, Steph and Bischoff have a faceoff. The two spar about their recent aquisitions, and Bischoff finally steps off, saying, "I'm sorry, Steph, but you're boring me and your three minutes are up..."
The Island Boys enter the ring and start stalking her. They set Steph up for an attack, but before they can move...
BOOM. Kane's pyro hits, and he rushes to the ring to clean house and save Steph, also announcing his move to Smackdown, home of the "Devil's Mistress."
I think that'd be a great moment, although I'm still very much against wasting valuable PPV time with talk/filler that could be better used on free TV. I think we all know Steph's in for a three minute warning one of these days, though.

As they've been established to be monster heels who have already levelled several other established people, including the Big Show, D'Lo and Stasiak, letting them at least be intimidated by a monster babyface wouldn't hurt them too much.
Heck, I once saw Edge and Christian get their butt whipped by Taker solo in a Handicap match. It really hasn't had much of an effect on either of them.
HHH did do a similar promo with Booker T. last year, and when Booker lost clean it made him look worthless. (and pinning "the champ" in a tag match before the PPV means nothing if you don't win on the big stage.)
