I seem to remember there's a video (it may be a Botchamania) where Randy Orton screws up the sign stare. I guess it was after his Rumble win. He's supposed to point at it and it explodes with fireworks but he messes it up.
I guess the arc for the shield is that they'll keep building them until Mania at which point they'll have a big show down to end a feud. After that I imagine they'll possibly split up and/or become face-fodder. These stables don't stay tough for long. It seems after they're done reigning terror, the WWE likes to squash them to put othger over (especially as the WWE doesn't know how to do anything other than cowardly heels), then they spend a couple of months being beaten clean by other wrestlers and then after around a year or so they build them up towards an IC/US/Tag team run.

WWE.com recently published an article where they list ten names to look out for in 2013. Here is that list, with some surprising names:
Team Rhodes Scholars
the only surprise there is Tyson Kidd. maybe Kaitlyn, but that would mean they are going to fix the divas division.
Ziggler's main event run will be short term. It's so that the WWE can give the Ziggler fans a feel good moment but when Ziggler wins his championship bank on the WWE making that victory be all about AJ and less about Ziggler. Once they break up Ziggler and AJ expect Ziggler to chase after midcard belts. The guy's the new Jericho
