No, I believe both wouldn't be booed as such if they book Taker to respect either or. Probably would work best if Taker handpicked one as his opponent or one would try to trade in a Royal Rumble win for a chance at the streak.
In the case of Punk he could even be booked by Johnny to take on Taker at WM after Punk repeatedly thwarts all of Johnny's attempts to screw Punk and have him drop the title. If every other attempt would fail then Johnny could use the streak as a last resort. If Taker respects his opponent and should they keep Punk/Bryan in a face role I don't think the fans will boo either out of the building especially with the number of people from the NY/NJ/Philly area in the crowd.
