HHH basically did the same thing in his first promo in the 2011 Taker feud when he put him and Taker above everybody else and the streak above any belt.

Not like it's happening or something, they're not that smart.
For all the reasons you just said, Rock physically dropping the title and saying out loud that the streak is more important would be absolutely ridiculous. Rock winning the belt should be about restoring prestige back to it, not making it even more worthless than it already is. It's not drawing and has no value anymore because they don't treat it the way they used to and the way they should.

If they're smart they'll use Rock and his emotions over finally holding the title again to give it some meaning.
