Harry "Davey Boy" Smith fled the States to Japan following the bizarre confrontation ahead of WrestleMania in New Orleans earlier this month.
The 32-year-old is alleged to have thrown hot coffee in the face of Roberts at a WrestleCon event in Louisiana on April 7.
Smith admitted the act in an interview with WrestleZone.com before police confirmed he was "wanted for battery" last week.
But the grappler, who now works for New Japan Pro Wrestling, is back in Asia after the authorities failed to track him down at his independent shows over that weekend but allowed him to travel.
However, the New Orleans Police Department still want to speak with him over the incident, according to Wrestling Observer.
Explaining the showdown Smith said that Roberts, a legend who achieved worldwide fame for his antics in the ring throughout the 1980s and 90s, refused to apologise for comments he had made about Davey Boy's late father the British Bulldog.
Smith Snr was a national hero after defeating Bret Hart for the Intercontinental Title at Wembley Stadium at SummerSlam 92. He died in May 2002 aged 39 of a heart attack.

His son says he offered Roberts the chance to step outside to settle their differences in a fight after he refused to say sorry for previous remarks.
The Snake Man then allegedly told him to “f*** off”, and Smith Jr reacted by throwing the coffee at him.
A six month jail term and/or fine of up to £700 is the penalty for a simple battery offence in Louisiana.
Smith Jr joined WWE in April 2006 and wrestled against stars such as Randy Orton, Chris Jericho and Kane.
He was a two-time tag-team champion along with partner Tyson Kidd before leaving the company in 2011.
Since then he has wrestled for a number of independent promotions before rejoining NJPW last year.
