He revealed having prepared to attack Warrior during WWE Hall of Fame 2014. Roberts was trying to seek revenge for an incident that occurred a few years prior to 2014. He wanted to claim the title in WWF and approached Warrior with the idea.

Unfortunately, The Ultimate Warrior did not want to hear him out and trashed the idea without giving it a second thought. This angered Jake Roberts, and he was ready for payback.

“I had a roll of quarters in my pocket and I was going to beat his a**. And I’m waiting on him, looking for him, of course, Warrior being Warrior they had him in a private area and security guards and all that. I had to wait and I had to wait and I had to wait and I’m boiling, I’m boiling, I’m boiling. And then all of a sudden, somebody tapped me on the back. Turned around and it was Warrior.

“He put his hands up and said ‘Please, just let me do this. I need to apologise to you and your family. That’s who I was then but that wasn’t me. But if it means anything, just know that I’m sorry.’ He disarmed me. Another lesson in life man, that’s what I got. A lesson.” H/t Inside The Ropes.
