I'm not sure this is the main reason. Many people think Mihawk is significantly stronger than Shanks. If you think Mihawk beats Shanks high diff, and Shanks is stronger than or comparable to Big Mom, then you'd think Mihawk is stronger than Big Mom.
If Big Mom's durability is not due to COA, then why does she lose her durability when she loses her mind (Mother Caramel incident). She scraped her knee and it drew blood then, but other times she's very durable? What causes the variance in her durability?
